If you dream of a sun-warmed terrace, citrus scented gardens, a sparkling swimming pool and an elegantly comfortable base to make your summer home for a week or two, then this delightful private villa is for you.

Beautifully finished to the exacting standards of a much-loved private home, the House of Dreams is big on character as well as comfort. Set high above Kalkan, where the views are wide and the pace is slower, the villa provides a pleasing sense of space thanks to high ceilings, open door arches and tastefully understated interiors, accented with personal touches that give this house its rather romantic charm. As the owner’s main residence for several years, there’s everything you could need here to make you feel quickly at home, including a superbly equipped kitchen, cinema-style entertainment system and quiet study area should any of your party want to connect with work or enjoy a little extra peace.

Outside, the pool forms the focal point, cocooned by Mediterranean trees and shrubs, and south facing to make the most of the sunshine all day long. There’s space for outdoor dining too of course, plus shady gazebo seating for morning coffees or an afternoon snooze. And as the sun goes down you can chase its last rays from the magnificent rooftop terrace, taking in the panoramic sweep of the bay and its islands as the sky fades into the rosy pink of evening. Perfect for a couple or a small family, the House of Dreams puts you at the heart of the local community, yet still a convenient five-minute drive along the road just below the house to Kalkan’s harbour and old town with its myriad tempting cafes, restaurants and bars.

Customer feedback

It’s been a great week...albeit in Covid-19 times. It’s our second visit to Kalkan and with Simpson too. We loved the House of Dreams, a beautiful villa. So well equipped and a great layout. Loved our rooftop drinks watching the sun going down. Our villa was attended to every day by Mohammed who cleaned the pool, arranged the sunbeds and dropped off fresh bread daily. A lovely touch. We went to Villa Mahal Beach Club...stunning place for the sophisticated! No Ibiza music. Very chilled and relaxing. Recommend getting the water taxi from Kalkan. The club has direct access to the sea. Beautiful lunch. We also did the Poisedon cruise. A stunning boat. Lovely lunch and beautiful stop off places to swim in turquoise seas. Our rep, Zeze, was amazing. We were there during Covid-19 times, so didn’t get to meet her. But we were in touch every day...and admittedly I contacted her a lot outside working hours. Especially when we heard we would be quarantined on our return to England. She gave her best advice during a hive of activity of worried customers. She was prompt to respond whatever the hour. She did a sterling job and an absolute credit to Simpson Travel. Well done Simpson and all of your staff, plus the owners of the House of Dreams for delivering an amazing holiday experience in such difficult times. Simpson is the best in ensuring every part of your journey is effortless. Meeting you at the airport, with your hire car ready to go, and on your return trip tracking your car so they are ready to take it off your hands when you pull up at the airport. Takes a lot of stress out of the airport experience! A lovely thoughtful welcome hamper also awaits you at your villa. We won’t book with any another other travel agent. Mr Simpson totally understands how to lead his staff on delivering exceptional customer service. Well done.
