Villa overview - owner's description
Villa Gunes is located on the Kas peninsula just outside the picturesque town of Kas, with its own beach platforms and spectacular sea views from every room. It has its own private swimming pool and shares the garden (3500 m2) and the beach with 4 other villas. At this villa the sea is only one minute away: a few steps through the garden lead you to the sea and beach platforms.
This seafront villa offers 205 square meters of indoor living space as well as plenty of partly shaded space on the outside terrace. Even at full occupation the considerable space ensures for guests to escape in peace and quiet, making it ideal for families, friends traveling together, and those simply wishing to relax in comfort to enjoy those stunning views.
The Living Room is exceptionally spacious with an open fire place, a dining area and open plan kitchen. There are 4 double, twin or triple bedrooms with en suite bath rooms, securing privacy for everyone. One of the rooms is a garden retreat (separate entrance).
The villa is air-conditioned throughout, has a Jacuzzi. a fully equipped kitchen for self catering, a washing machine, dish washer, satellite TV, DVD player and a stereo CD player. Guests can make unlimited use of the wireless internet; just bring your (Wi-Fi) laptop. The villa is next door to Club Barbarossa where the villa guests are allowed to have special price breakfast for 5 pounds and lunch/dinner for 10 pounds per person (children under at half prices).
The garden, the pool and your villa is looked after daily by the Club Barbarossa staff. You can call the reception anytime for any food, beverage or information items. You are also entitled to use the Club's table tennis, billiard and canoes free of charge (up to two hours per day). You can also get advice on tours and sights of Kas from the Barbarossa front office.
The Kas Peninsula
Villa Gunes is located on the Bay side of Kas Peninsula (Cukurbag Yarimada in Turkish). This side of the Kas Peninsula is sheltered: less windy and the sea is perfect for swimming, also early and late in the season. It is a very peaceful location, which is popular by people who like to enjoy their holiday without the street noises, noisy bars and mosques and still be only a 10 minute dolmus ride from the town centre.
The picturesque harbour town of Kas
The picturesque harbour town Kas (Antiphellos in the Greek era) is renowned for its natural charm at the Turkey Rivera. It has an attractive harbour front along which tea gardens, cafes and restaurants are to be found in abundance.
Leading away from the harbour is a warren of winding cobbled streets full of colorful shops offering all manner of carpets, ceramics, arts and crafts. Kas has remained relatively unspoiled since, until recent times, it was only possible to reach there by sea or on horseback.
Tourism in Kas
Tourism in Kas is international and tends to be of the more elite kind. The town is especially popular with the English, the Germans, the Scandinavians, the French, the Belgians and the Dutch, who come here in search of privacy, peace and quiet, comfort, nature, culture, active pursuits and fine cuisine. There is no mass tourism in Kas - no sprawling (all-inclusive) resorts or apartment complexes with organized entertainment. Many hikers pass through Kas as they walk The Lycian Way (a 509 km way-marked footpath around the coast from Fethiye to Antalya). The Lycian coast - and Kas especially - is famous for its beauty. Kas is recommended in various travel guides and is a stop over for the cruises in traditional wooden Gulets: the Blue Voyages.
Kas does not have a sandy beach, but it does have a few pebble beaches and several sun terraces right on the waterfront, which often have a bar. The fabulous sandy beaches of Kaputas (15 km) and Patara (35 km) are easy to get to by minibus and/or boat. Similarly, a fifteen-minute boat trip will take you to Limanagzi - a beautiful beach with a very relaxed atmosphere on the opposite side of the bay. On the peninsula people swim in the sea near the sun terraces of the hotels. Villa Sema (and Dunya) has its own shared beach platforms.
On the outskirts of Kas there is a small and reasonably well-preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre. From the highest row of seat you have a fabulous view of the sea. On the hill between the theatre and the market there are a few free-standing Lycian tombs. On the other side of the street from the theatre, there is the barely recognizable ruin of an ancient temple. In the hills immediately behind Kas there are a large number of Lycian rock graves that date back to the fourth century BC. You can see these graves from the town centre, and during the high season they are lit up on some evenings.
Kas is centrally situated in relation to many interesting antiquities, cultural attractions and areas of natural beauty, which makes it an ideal base camp for day trips and excursions. The most popular day trips and excursions are mentioned below. It is definitely worth going on a boat trip to the ancient Lycian city of Kekova, the remains of which are mostly submerged. You can go swimming and snorkelling during the trip. Lunch is usually included and is consumed in one of the little restaurants on the waterfront in Kekova. After lunch you have time to go and see the castle of Kekova and the Lycian graves. You can also go on a boat trip to one of the many little islands just off the coast. If you hire a car, you can visit the ruins of the ancient city of Myra, the St Nicholas basilica at Demre, the waterfall between Kas and Kalkan and the stunning Saklikent Gorge all on the same day. Try to be at the gorge around lunch time if you can, so you can lunch on the floating platforms on the river. Lovers of antiquity should also make a point of visiting the highly recommended ruins of Tlos along the way. A trip to Xanthos, which is inland from Kalkan, is also definitely worth doing.

The villa is the best self catering holiday home I have ever stayed in. It was beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean & had everything you could need & more from a self catering perspective. The staff were extremely friendly & helpfull & the views were stunning.
The only bad comment I would make is that despite comments on the web site & in the guest book reporting that the showers leaked, these had not been repaired before our arrival.
Despite this, we had a wonderfull holiday & I would whole heartedly reccomend this as a fantastic place to stay.
It was as described. We were 2 families with 3 children between us and there was plenty of room for us all. We did experience a few teething problems such as air con leaking in one of the bedrooms throughout our stay. Mop bucket in situ and drip drip drip all night every night. Engineers called out twice but problem not resolved. DVD player broken and was replaced. Toaster tripped the lights, mentioned but not replaced. No matter - we just used the grill.
Lovely villa, super pool but beds and pillows very uncomfortable. Great having beach platform, lovely access to the sea. Hotel Barbarossa next door extremely accomodating and very reasonable pricewise for a room for the day as we had to vacate the villa early am on our last day. Dolmus from top of "cardiac" hill cheap and reliable. We used the steps and windy path opposite Barbarossa entrance to get to the main road as the hill was so steep. Kas town was lovely, we ate out most nights and most restaurants reasonable but more expensive than Kalkan where we stayed last year. Shame no information pack in the villa but there is a guest book which we found helpful.
We hired a boat for the day which was highly recommended.
Joshcun and his wife worked really hard to maintain the villas and gardens and was very helpful, delivering water as required and bread every day. The welcome pack was super - thank you. We did our shopping at Migros and usually got a taxi back at night.
All in all we had a lovely holiday and would recommend the villa. We have had better though in terms of value for money and those extra touches e.g mobile phone in villa and information pack, take-away menus etc.
We had a lovely relaxing holiday at Villa Gunes. The villa and pool are beautiful and well equipped, a lovely kitchen, beautiful sitting room, nice sitting area and good views. However, there are a few points that we were not so happy with.
- There was a feeling that as the villas are for sale, there is not much interest in their upkeep. The swimming platform seems neglected - there is rubbish, a broken lamp lying on the rocks, broken parasols. The leaking airconditioning unit in one bedroom was reported but not fixed, so we had to sleep with a constant dripping noise for the second week. The shower cubicle in the ground floor bedroom had a lot of mould in it. The gas Bbq did not work well, burned everything even on the lowest setting.
- Another point is that the villas are much closer together than they appear on the website, the patios and pools are definitely overlooked and we were even splashed on our patio when someone jumped into the pool above us.
- The garden furniture seems extremely cheap for this type of villa, too much plastic.
- In the bedrooms, apart from a small wardrobe, there is not much furniture, a chest of drawers would be useful, nowhere to put down anything like a hairbrush, a handbag, a book, only the tiny bedside cabinets or the floor.
The property was at a beautiful location. The villa was lovely but we did have a few problems with the boiler leaking and we were also think its important that future guests should be more aware about the pool room being completely detached from the house. Other than that, we absolutely loved it and are already in discussion about returning!
Plus points: large well-appointed ground floor area, pool and view excellent, proximity to the sea.
Negative points: bedrooms small and poorly furnished, NOT walking distance to kas town, not many activities nearby. Shower leaks badly and damp in lower floor rooms.
We were two families sharing the villa which made the price reasonable.
Eva and Joscun work extremely hard, but it would have been nice for them to have spent some time welcoming us. Water and daily bread delivery useful.
You need shoes to walk the distance to the sea (hot stones) and to come out of the sea on the metal ladder!
But we loved the pool and spent most of our time in it.

Private Owner From Kas, Turkey Member since Feb 2011
The lovely villas Sema, Dunya, Gunes and Ates have been recently acquired by the Club Barbarossa's parent company (October 2010). A great deal of effort has already been spent on the properties to ensure that the guests’ wishes in the reviews were taken into account. Now the villas have plenty of sunbathing decks by the sea, phone in each room directly linking to a 24/7 reception, new upholstery and fixtures in the rooms. The villas have also been painted and the pools serviced to ensure a very comfortable stay for our guests. The villas were already great property but the availability of 24/7 of our staff and the free access to the Club facilities next door will definitively improve the guests’ perception of our villas. Halil Gunay is the manager of the Club Barbarossa Hotel and Villas and he will be at the properties almost every day of the year. Prof. Dr. Sevki Erdogan is the force behind the Club Barbarossa and he will be very happy to hear from you during and after your stay. We expect to see many return guests to our villas and we aim to provide a better setting each year our guests return.
