Looking for a luxury villa with an individual charm? Our rooms are spacious and light, with marble everywhere and abundant flowering plants! In short, it is a very pretty villa with tons of character. But don’t confuse character with old-fashioned. As you can see, we offer every modern amenity. And we haven’t even mentioned our views, which are truly inspiring.
This perfectly situated, generously proportioned holiday villa in Kalkan has a private pool, as well as 3 large en-suite bedrooms, all with marvellous sea views & large terraces. There is a delightful Ottoman area on the roof terrace, with its own all-weather mini-kitchen.
Barinak is part of a small, exclusive site of privately owned apartments and villas, with staff on hand to greet you and help you during your stay.
The property has every mod con you’ll need, including satellite TV, wifi, dishwasher, ice machine, water cooler, aircon throughout, outdoor fans and more.
The location is ideal, in a quieter area of Kalkan with incredible views of 2 bays, yet only a 10 minute walk to Kalkan old town, with its charming rooftop restaurants and shops. A rental car is not essential, as taxis are plentiful, public transport is good and there are numerous excursions available.
We aim to offer a personalised service and are happy to arrange transfers from Dalaman or Antalya airports, and/or car hire for our guests.

Villa Barinak - a Place to Unwind
Four of us had a fantastic week at Villa Barinak. There were decades between our ages but we all loved the holiday. As well as some beautiful classic pieces in the villa there are also modern facilities like TV and wifi. Our transfer was waiting at the airport and we were warmly greeted on arrival at the villa. The short walk into town is quite steep but cheap taxis are plentiful. The villa had everything we needed and the sea views especially from rooftop terrace were fantastic. There is a small supermarket 2 mins away. The ice making machine provided was a boon and we used mint that we picked from a garden urn in our evening drinks. One evening I cooked a meal and used chillies also growing near the kitchen. We went on a great day cruise of swimming and snorkelling from a hired boat. Another day we spent at the long and sandy Patara beach. Thursday was market day, lots of bartering and tea sipping. I loved switching on the underwater pool light in the evening, sipping cool drinks and wishing we could stay longer. I’d love to return to the villa, next time for longer😀 (Deb S, September 2016)
Magical stay in beautiful Kalkan
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We stayed in the villa for a week, and had a really lovely time. The villa itself is both beautiful and practical. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, and the pool and terrace are exactly what you would want from a holiday villa. We particularly liked the roof terrace, which provides magical views of the surrounding area and is a very pleasant place to enjoy a relaxing drink after a tough day of sunbathing! The flowers in the garden are delightful too. The location is secluded, which is ideal as the town is pretty lively, but is only short ten minute walk away. Kalkan itself is a bustling little place, with a nice mix of restaurants, shops, and bars, and has some nice ’beach clubs’ that are a pleasant way to pass the day- Yali was our favourite, and is a bit more upmarket than the rest. I would thoroughly recommend this villa, and Kalkan- we can’t wait to go back. (June 2016)
Best views over Kalkan - This is our 4th trip to this villa and our 6th to Kalkan and I can recommend Villa Barinak without hesitation. We tried villas closer to the old town but they are more cramped together and not so well equipped. If we were feeling too well fed from the many excellent restaurants in the town we hailed a taxi and for less than £2 they dropped us at the door. Susan replied to all our enquiries very promptly and kindly. As a group we felt we had a well rested and fun time and thinking about returning next year ! (H.E. June 2016)
A beautiful and very well equipped villa, guaranteed to provide an excellent holiday” 5 of 5 stars
This was our second visit to Villa Barinak, and no doubt we will go again. The villa is absolutely beautiful, with all the different patio areas brimming with flowers. There is lots of space. We were particularly impressed with the design and equipment in the bathrooms and kitchen, upgraded since our first visit.
The quality of support from the moment of booking right through to the maid service and the local service manager is outstanding.
Kalkan is a delightful town in the middle of a fascinating area of Turkey. The walk back up the hill is a bit steep. Get a cab! They’re very cheap.(Clare, August 2015)
Another fab holiday!” 5 of 5 stars
This was out third time to Villa Barinak and as always it definitely delivered. The house is beautifully presented with a lovely pool and amazing rooftop ottoman with views second to none!! It is also brilliantly located within walking distance of town. We have been with friends and with children and it works well for both particularly as it is so close to the Kalamar Beach club (with its trampoline pontoons - popular with all ages!). We will definitely be coming back for a fourth visit next year!! (Elvira, July 2015)
Wonderful villa in a beautiful town” 5 of 5 stars
We had a fantastic time at beautiful Villa Barinak. It is covered with flowers and the garden area is very pretty. The villa is appointed luxuriously with everything we could ever have needed and more besides. There are beautiful views from the balcony and the stunning Ottoman seating area on the rooftop.
The villa is well- maintained and very clean, with daily maid service from two friendly ladies. The pool is also very clean.
The villa is 20 minutes stroll down to the beautiful town centre with its numerous rooftop restaurants and pretty harbour. It takes a bit longer to walk back to the upwards inclines. Taxis are plentiful and reasonably priced. There is a shop just 5 minutes walk down the road called Can Can supermarket. They stock almost everything you need, and are really friendly. They will happily deliver your shopping. There is a fishmonger and a couple of butcher shops in the town so we had everything we needed for a barbecue now and then, using the very swish Weber BBQ.
We have stayed at Villa Barinak twice now and absolutely love it. We hope to stay again when we next visit Kalkan. We have had a few villa holidays and Villa Barinak is our undisputed favourite. (Judie & Neil, June 2015)
Holiday Heaven” 5 of 5 stars
This home has everything you require to make your stay comfortable, relaxing and memorable! The kitchen has everything you need and more. And we found the chilled water dispenser a good addition. The garden and pool were very private with beautiful views of the aqua blue sea. Especially on an evening from the third floor comfortable terrace.
It is in a very good quiet location, though a good steep walk into town but manageable, we found the local taxis very cheap if you find it a bit much at the end of a long day.
The visitors book is full of excellent information and the Villa was kept in a very clean condition throughout our stay, with daily visits from the friendly maids and regular fresh towels and bedding.
We would definitely recommend Villa Barinak and look forward to another stay ourselves. Thank so much to Susan who was so very helpful with our booking and any queries we had.
I cannot rate this villa highly enough. This was our return visit following a wonderful holiday last year. It was just as perfect this year. The attention to detail and the quality of the accommodation is outstanding. Susan and the staff on site could not have been more helpful. Kalkan itself is a little gem. No doubt at all that we will be returning again.
This is our 4th visit to Kalkan and our 3rd to Villa Barinak. The people the food and the town are great,they remember us every year - but that may say a lot about us!
The villa is so well equipped,clean and well looked after
by the staff that going back three times speaks for itself. I only hope we can make it four.
Wonderful getaway with plenty of space and killer views!
Had the best time in Kalkan and staying at Villa Barinak was a major contributor to why the vacation was so nice. Beautiful views and effortless check in and booking process complete with suggestions on where to eat/what to do etc. would go back in a heartbeat.
Beautiful, tranquil Kalkan
Villa Barinak is charming and full of character. The ’Ottoman’ area on the roof terrace in particular is a wonderful amenity with beautiful views over the bays and a cooling breeze in the evening - perfect for a pre-dinner drink! The villa’s manager and owner could not have been more helpful. Kalkan itself is delightful, the local people very accommodating, the restaurants excellent, the sea crystal clear and warm, and there is plenty to do whether you want to lounge in the sun or venture farther afield. We did both! One word of advice - it is very hot in the summer and the town is very hilly!
Fantastic - lovely villa in great location
Have just spent two wonderful weeks in Villa Barinak. I would say it is the best villa we have rented over a good number of years. Not only does it have everything you could possibly want but it is also really beautiful - covered in a host of colourful flowers. It is perfectly located in Kalkan - just a 15 minute walk to all the wonderful restaurants and shops (although we always got a taxi back as it is a tad steep!) Susan organised the airport transfers for us and was very helpful throughout. We are already planning our return trip. KK August 2012
The whole family from very young to very old loved everything about the villa - and indeed Kalkan. (Rather too hot outside in Aug for Grandad but then we knew that in advance! Thank goodness for air conditioning!) The memories of that holiday are still so vivid. We would certainly stay there again if visiting that part of the world - & will recommend to others.
Villa Barinak met our every requirement and we especially loved the ottoman and pool areas. Also the views from the villa were stunning.
This was our first trip to Kalkan in about 10 years & we’ve already booked to go back to this Kalkan villa next year, we had such a great time. We’ve already recommended it to friends, who’ve booked up to go too!
Villa Barinak has everything you need for an escape to the sun and more. The layout of the villa and equipment throughout is exceptional. The kids enjoyed their own rooms but liked to meet up on their adjoining balcony.
The rooftop Ottoman area was my favourite part of the villa. If you can see yourself lying on a huge cushioned area with a cooling breeze, sea views and sipping on the tipple of your desire then this is the place for you!
