The name says it all: Mavi Deniz means ‘blue sea’ in Turkish and this beautiful villa lies just a couple of minutes’ stroll from the water's edge. The interiors are stylishly furnished with wooden floors, Jacuzzi baths, and French doors leading out to the terrace which has ample space to admire the delightful sea views. Part of the terrace overlooking the pool shades a large table, ideal for dining and sunset barbecues whilst the views of Kalkan at night from the spacious balcony above beckon for that pre-dinner apéritif and ‘special sunset time’.

The villa is located close to the beautiful Mahal Beach Club, less than a five-minute walk, where it is possible to spend a lazy lunch sampling delicious cuisine in their renowned restaurant. However even closer, we are delighted to offer access to your own spacious beach platform with sunbeds and access to the clear waters and only shared with your two neighbouring villas.

A stay here truly reflects the mood of stylish Kalkan and its array of sophisticated restaurants and cafés can be reached via sea taxi or a five-minute drive.

Customer feedback

Lovely villa, great views – welcome hamper, water dispenser and fresh bread delivered daily was a real treat.
Samanda Davison – September 2020

Overall, impressed with level of service from Zeze and her local team. A couple of minor issues were fixed within a couple of hours. Car hire pick-up and collection was quick, efficient and hassle-free. We were delighted and would not hesitate to book with Simpson again.
Simpson Traveller – September 2020

A wonderful villa. We loved the week we were there. Zeze was always there to help us with any questions.
Simpson Traveller – August 2020

It was our first trip to Kalkan and would highly recommend it. With a group of six, with both young and older adults, the resort had some lovely bars for the late night revellers but in September it is less crowded so made for pleasant experience. Mavi Deniz is excellent, beautiful views to wake up to in the morning. Boat trip on Poseidon was fabulous, small groups so plenty of space and a chance to really get to know other families made for a great day. Overall great holiday and would recommend using Simpson.
Simpson Travellers – September 2019

This wonderful villa has just about everything one could possibly want to have a superb holiday but a day out at the incredibly pretty green island of Kastellorizo (Meyisti in Turkish) is to be strongly recommended.
Jenny, Gail & Chris – July 2019

Thank you for such an amazing week – have loved every second here! The pool, the view, food – everything was perfect.
The Owens – July 2019

Location of Mavi Deniz cannot be equalled and Kalkan is magical. Everything was extremely enjoyable. With particular thanks to Olivia and Bahri – their assistance could not be faulted. We look forward to going back again very soon!
Christine – June 2019

Mavi Deniz is a fabulous villa – we found it hard to tear ourselves away from its beautiful view and pool to explore Kalkan but we were glad we did – it’s a great holiday destination. Olivia and Vicki were brilliant, very friendly and they gave us lots of useful information. We very much enjoyed the trip on Poseidon and the Hamman, thank you. The only downside of the holiday was that a week was too short and flew by far too fast!
Juliet & Diana – June 2019

We have stayed in Kalkan four times and the views never disappoint. Mavi Deniz is a lovely villa and in the best location with Mahal Beach Club just seconds away. Our day on the boat was a highlight and drinks in the botanical gardens in old town Kalkan was a great find. We highly recommend the Kalkan Regency Hotel for dinner one night, the view from there is breathtaking and it is open to all with the best food. Taxis are very cheap and it is worth going to Kaş for a day or evening. The Simpson Travel representative, Olivia, was lovely and extremely helpful. We couldn’t have asked for a better week’s holiday.
The Owen Family – August 2018

We spent a relaxing two weeks at Mavi Deniz. The views are spectacular.
Mrs P Hubbard – June 2018

It was our first visit to Turkey....we were slightly apprehensive. We certainly had no need to be. Our accommodation at Mavi Deniz was excellent, we never tired of the view or lounging in/by the pool. Brave Tours supplied our hire car and we also went on one of their boat trips...both were excellent. Thank you to Vicki, our rep, for her local knowledge and friendliness. We've already booked next year's holiday, we can't wait to meet the locals again and sample all the excellent food and enjoy everything that Simpson Travel and Kalkan has to offer.
Mrs Conway – September 2017

Location, location, location! Mavi Deniz has surpassed our expectations. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the amazing view and pool. Kaş is definitely worth the trip, the coast road alone must rank as one of the most spectacular roads to drive along. The town itself has a lovely Bohemian feel, with cobbled streets and interesting shops. But what makes Turkey and Kalkan truly special is the people, such friendly and welcoming people!
Anthony & Sarah – June 2017

Our first time in Kalkan, but third visit to Turkey and this holiday has truly lived up to expectations. We have loved the view from Mavi Deniz. Loved revisiting Xanthas and enjoying the same 'personal tour' by a gentleman sporting a wonderful moustache. Some of our highlights include taking Vicki's advice and following the mountain drive through Bezirgam and Islamlar (amazing art installation on the trees in the village tea garden – not to be missed!) Revisiting Fethiye and Kayakoy ('Ghost' village and the setting for the novel Birds Without Wings). Thank you Simpson Travel and Vicki especially for another great holiday!
Time , Fiona + Harry – June 2016



Another fantastic week at Mavi Deniz. Loved soaking up the beauty and the total relaxation in this lovely villa. The ruins of Xanthos and Patara take you back in time and the beaches of Patara and Kapitas are well worth a dip in the sea. Hope you enjoy Kalkan as much as we do.
The Harris Family – May 2016

We had a lovely stay at Mavi Deniz – although we spent most of our days at the beach clubs. The villa was absolutely beautiful especially at night when the pool was lit up. We also did a boat trip at night for supper when they prepared a delicious Turkish meal and a tour around 'Mouse and Snake Islands' – there were also a lot of shooting stars. Thank you very much to Simpson Travel for a superb stay at Mavi Deniz.
The Harris Family – August 2015

We have had a wonderful two weeks at Mavi Deniz. It has been completely idyllic. We have done very little except eat, drink, read and relax and it was exactly what we needed. The villa is fantastic and the views are absolutely stunning. We loved getting the water taxi into Kalkan for dinner. Thank you all at Simpson Travel for a truly memorable holiday. Our first time with Simpson Travel but definitely not our last.
Julie & Kevin – June 2015

We have had an amazing time at this beautiful villa. The views are to die for and we have been so glad of the shaded outdoor space. Bridgette and Osman were very helpful. We will be back.
Mrs Kellett – August 2014 

A very relaxing and enjoyable holiday! All in all, just a great time and we will be back.
Mrs Akin – July 2014

Our second time with Simpson Travel and another excellent experience. Having your own check-in at both Gatwick and Dalaman was a considerable improvement. Our rep, Bridgette, was just great and nothing was too much trouble for her.
Mrs Akin – July 2014

We have just returned from a wonderful two-week holiday at the Mavi Deniz in Kalkan. Fabulous views, everything you could wish for in terms of amenities and situated in a wonderfully quiet location. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks to Bridgette and Osman for being so friendly and helpful. 
Mrs Hubbard – August 2013

We have just returned from two blissful weeks at Mavi Deniz in Kalkan and can't wait to go back there....The views from the villa are stunning and the craft on the water, a constant interest. The terraces at the villa, especially the covered loggia were where we spent most of our time, relaxing and enjoying the lovely pool. We were in Kalkan last October, so Kalkan, with its wonderful coastline and great restaurants, is now a firm favourite with us. 
Mrs Cook – May 2013

We have just come back from staying at Mavi Deniz in Kalkan and had the most beautiful week.  Thank you very much Simpson Travel!
Mr Simpson – September 2012

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
