A lovely private villa on the marina side of the Peninsula. Not overlooked. 4 bedrooms, pool, usual facilities. Steps to the sea.

The space

We rented Sundown Villa in 2011, returning to it in 2012 having loved it so much. In 2010, our first visit to Kas, we rented another nearby villa, and whilst there, made a list of the better ones (better locations, etc). We love the breeze at Sundown and being the end of a cul-de-sac: we are not overlooked, and so have privacy. We prefer being on the marina side of the Peninsula so we get glorious sundowns.

In 2012, the gardener happened to mention that the owner might be interested in selling. We contacted him, agreed a fair deal, and became owners! Since then, we have rented the villa out on UK sites and Tripadvisor, and in 2016 have extended our listing to Airbnb.

We love the layout of the villa: the kitchen looks out to the verandah and sea beyond; there are plenty of sunbeds, plus several areas of shade, to suit all times of day and moods.

One particular feature is that the villa has level access: many villas on the Peninsula are on sometimes steep slopes which can be a challenge when parking! We know from experience. Here, the road to the villa is on the flat, and there are just two steps down to the villa. [we have had guests with limited mobility -one bedroom being on the ground floor also helps in this regard].

Guest access

The whole villa.

Interaction with guests

We employ a local manager, Cuneyt, and a gardener, Mehmet. Cuneyt will visit typically the morning after arrival (for a night arrival). Mehmet is around each morning and occasionally during the days. Guests can arrange for fresh bread to be delivered (for a charge) by Mehmet each morning.

Cuneyt speaks excellent English: having worked in London, and being married to Christine, from Wales. He should be your first port of call for any maintenance or other problems.

Other things to note

are we real, honest and trustworthy?

Since first renting Sundown Villa out, we have sent an email to our renters so they can gauge 'who we are' and 'can we be trusted'. Since 2013, I have retired from my 30 year career at a major accountancy firm, so have had to revise the note. The present email I send is pasted below.

This is a standard email, aimed to give renters 'comfort' about who they are dealing with.


Since one common doubt is 'is the villa 'real'/'are the people trustworthy'- we had such doubts the first time we rented,  our names are Allan Beardsworth and Jane Beardsworth, from Stockport, England.  We are the parents of three growing children, Tom, Alice and Sophie.

If you do an Internet search on me, you will find a fair bit on me, through my hobby (chess, I have been the non playing captain of England's men's team and am passionate about the game) and work, a recently retired partner at Deloitte [ I retired on 31 December 2014]. By all means call any Deloitte UK office (e.g.  In your home country and ask for contact details of our Manchester office and ask to speak to Audrey Gresty, my former PA, or one or the other Manchester tax secretaries, if you wish to verify who I am. Since retiring from Deloitte, I have become a trustee of my daughters' school, Withington Girls' School, and of the Manchester hospices, St Ann's Hospice.


[as at August 16] If you do search for Jane, another Jane Beardsworth comes up. My Jane is a primary school teacher and is far too sensible to like chess (indeed, and alas, she doesn't even know the moves). If you search Tom, our eldest, who left university in July 2014, you will see he is a journalist at Bloomberg. So hopefully you can get an impression of who we are.

The above might be overkill, but we had such worries when we rented through the Internet.

Our philosophy is 'treat people like we would like to be treated ourselves'. We rent out not to maximise income, but to give us income to help with the cost of owning our holiday that we love. So we hope nice people have a lovely holiday at our home, and want to come back again, and/or will be happy to recommend Sundown to others.

We have had consistent excellent feedback over the years, and intend to keep it that way. When maintenace and other issues arise, as they do (including when we stay) Cuneyt and/or Mehmet have been consistently good at getting matters sorted in a good time frame.

Visited Kaş with family. Lovely town with warm and friendly people. Lots to do and a huge number of restaurants. Stayed in the most fantastic villa with stunning views. The villa was spacious, clean and comfortable. The outdoor living area was especially large with a fantastic infinity pool at its heart. The service provided by Allan prior to the visit made us feel at home prior to leaving England. This warmth and reassurance was reinforced by the house keeper Mehmet and his wife and the villa manager, Ceyneyt.

[i rarely write long reviews, please read this one] End your search, and book the Sundown villa. We had an informal family meet and greet between my american family, and my significant other's turkish family at Allan's home (sundown villa). It was the perfect setting to learn about their culture and family while appreciating the awesome (no, amazing) views from the villa. There are other homes in the area, but after doing comprehensive aerial filming in Kas (we are professional drone pilots), I am pretty sure the view is the best from this home. Pool is great, house is large, and we even got a large bag of fresh turkish bread delivered each morning. Allan (the homeowner) was great and I have never had such a clear and frequent line of communication with any vacation rental homeowner. He even sent me a follow up note looking for suggestions to improve, which is something I have never received from a host. The last thing in my ramble of a long review is to make certain to take a turkish gullet boat from Kas to Kekova ruins. I think the food we had on the boat was the best I had in turkey, no bullsh!t. Allan's housekeeper Mehmet has the info on the boat captain. Cost was 1200 TK Lira and I would have paid triple for the experience we had. We will return Allan :)

We had a great vacation in this exceptional villa. Location was just perfect. Some family members preferred the pool while others were enjoying the sea. Both Allan and Cuneyt were very informative and supportive for all our questions. We will definitely come back..

If you're looking for a nice place to spend your vacation in Kaş, look no futher! The Sundown Villa was far beyond our expectations! We were a party of 9 people and every one of us loved this place.. Allan was very polite, helpful and prompt from the very first minute we've contacted him for the villa. The villa has everything you would need; towels, kitchen appliances, Wi-Fi etc.. It has 4 bedrooms all of which have a perfect sea view, and all rooms have their own bathrooms and airconditioning. It was only 10 mins away from Kaş City Center( to the marina, touristical stores and restaurants) and 7/8 minutes to the groceries. Cuneyt and Mehmet were also very kind and made their best for us to feel at home during our stay. While we've spent a lot of time at home enjoying the pool and the amazing view, there are many nice beaches near by. To conclude, we really loved this place and will definitely make our way back to The Sundown Villa following years. Thank you Allan once again, it was a pleasure meeting you and staying at The Sundown Villa!

I really appreciate to Allan for our wonderful accommodation experience in Kaş. The Villa had everything we needed and Allan informed us about all the things before we came. The Villa was cleaned and handy. Each 3 rooms are big enough for two people. (there was an extra room but we didn't use it). There were quite big front and backyard and there is some area for barbecue near the backyard. Also there was an infinity pool in the backyard we spent lots of time in it with my friends. Cüneyt was also helpful for lots of things. He was waiting for us when we arrived and he brought a welcome pack for us. There is a lemon tree in the frontyard and he had put some lemon for us on the table before we arrived. Thanks a lot for every thing for Allan, Cüneyt and Mehmet's wife. I already recommended the Villa to my many friends.

First of all many Thanks for Allan. He was very helpful before and during our holiday. He gave us all the explanations about the house and the area. The villa was awesome. The view from the villa was beautiful. The house was clean and we found everything we need. The gardener Mehmet brought us fresh bread every morning and cleaned the garden area. Cuneyt was also very helpful. He met us at the villa when we arrived. He showed us the villa and he left us a welcome pack aftee our journey. He was very polite. There were lots of beautiful plants around the house and the house is surrounded by them. The sunset was amazing. If i will go Kas again, i will definitly want to stay in Allan's beautiful house. Thank you again.

Sundown Villa is owned by Allan and Jane Beardsworth.  We live in Stockport, near Manchester, England. We have been married for almost 25 years (2017 is our silver anniversary) and have three children, now all young adults. 

Jane is a primary school teacher. Allan retired in 2014 from Deloitte, where he was a senior tax partner. Allan now practises tax for a small number of clients and is also a trustee (voluntary roles) for a number of charities, his largest time commitment being St Ann's Hospice. 

We bought Sundown Villa having stayed at it twice, and loved it, and having heard the owner might be amenable to selling it.
