Recommendations to advertise villa rentals on?
« on: June 14, 2018, 11:24:58 AM »
Hi everyone

Am looking for recommendations for a site to advertise my holiday villa on.

Have been with Owners Direct for years but am no longer happy and wish to move away from them.

Can anyone offer any advice of a good company who don't operate like Owners Direct do now?

Kalkan Secrets. They operate the same way Owners Direct used to. Remember that.......the renter has access to the owner...direct.
Would steer clear of Holiday Lettings, they are huge and headed up by Trip Advisor. They are worse than useless and are as money grabbing as Owners Direct. They decided to 'move' our villa and now say they cannot move it back. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing and they are rude and unhelpful. Horrible company.

I would recommend joining the ’Friends of Kalkan’ Facebook page (obviously if you’re in Facebook).youll get lots of advice.  But the obvious one is Kalkan Private Rentals (part of Kalkan Secrets now!). There are loads of Kalkan based agents but all charge 15% commission, Olive Tree Travel, Lale Homes, Escapade, also The Turquoise Collection (they charge 20%). I have my property on all of these and am full this year. It’s worth spreading yourself out.  :)

Had a look at the site recommended and I think 15% of every booking is way too high. 

However the Kalkan private rentals sister company seems like what I'm after as only want a site to advertise my villa on and then do all the bookings and money myself (like Owners Direct used to be).

Thanks everyone for your help! :)

  • Sezkalkan: Holly - you may be better off starting off a post under 'general discussion' on the right hand side, but generally the weather is great in October - mid 20's with plenty of sunshine. Maybe the odd bit of rain, but doesn't normally last too long.  A little cooler in the evenings, so pack a pashmina.  It seems very safe. All of us Kalkan nutters hvae been coming all year and more than once too!  Go for it
