We have just spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Swallows Rest . The villa is spacious with everything you could wish for. One of the most useful things was the water cooler in the kitchen - such a great idea. The views are fantastic . We loved everything about this beautiful villa and would love to return.

“Wonderful villa with excellent view!”
Reviewed 12 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We had a wonderful time at this spacious villa. We enjoyed the pool and the garden, and the stunning views of the ocean. The pool was nice but it has no shallow part, so it is not suitable for small children. A rental car is almost a must, it takes you easily to the wonderful beaches of Patara and Kaputas. Warm and sunny weather, good food, interesting historic sites and beautiful scenery - what else can you ask for? The only minor disturbance were stray dogs (and cats) who wanted company, since a lot of the other villas were empty due to low season.

“Great villa with lovely views”
Reviewed 6 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The villa is very nicely presented throughout and the views across the bay are very nice. Close proximity to the beach club is nice for a swim in the warm sea and provides a water taxi to the main Kalkan harbour (for a fee - regular taxis are cheaper if there are 4 of you).
We ate at the Finduka (sp?) Hotel just down the hill which was very nice (best meal of holiday), but generally had to travel further for eating out (into Kalkan) - which required a short taxi ride (5 mins). Lots of things to do nearby including activities like water sports (and the villa has a very good condition table tennis table and bats) as well as more cultural sites to see. Weather was very nice in mid-September with sunshine everyday and temperatures in the high 20s. Would definitely recommend.
