Nearest airport is Dalaman which is approx 45 minutes by car. Car hire is available at the airport or locally, but is not needed. Airport transfers can be arranged with our local agent as required. Once at the apartment, all amenities can be reached on foot, and the bus stop for buses to Fethiye or Calis is just 200 metres from the door.
Beach, bars, restaurants - 400 metres. Supermarket / bus stop - 300 metres. Fethiye - 3km. Oludeniz - 10km approx.
From the apartment you'll find Calis beach just a five minute walk away, with its long promenade lined with bars and restaurants serving everything from breakfast (including English) to evening meals (all tastes catered for), or you can just unwind by the beach with a drink watching the famous Calis sunset.
Calis is famous for its gentle breeze which is very welcome during the hot summer months. The beach is home to the Carretta carretta turtle which can often be spotted in the waters, especially during the early morning. At the waterfront in Fethiye, just as in Calis, you'll find lots of places where you can book trips, everything from fishing trips to visiting some of the beautiful sites Turkey has to offer including the Twelve island boat trip, kaya koy (the ghost town), Pamukkale (cotton castle), horse riding, paragliding off Babadag mountain (Olu Deniz), Saklikent gorge, Dalayan mud baths, jeep safaris, Turkish baths, Butterfly cove, Patara beach, the list is endless with something for everyone. You can even take a boat trip over to Rhodes, maybe stay overnight!

"Peaceful, perfect location"
Our third time at Bambu Apartments and everything as we expected it would be. Hosts Ann and Gary's enthusiastic welcome is such an excellent start to your holiday. These guys have a lot of knowledge about the area and general life in Turkey, so do ask them questions. There are ground floor, first and second floor apartments - it's a very small complex of around 6 apartments in total, so it never feels crowded. The upper floor apartments provide some of the best views of Fethiye Bay in the area (including the famed Calis sunsets) but the ground floor apartments are particularly good for those with young children or those less agile. All apartments have a view of the immaculate pool and there are accompanying ample seating areas for those that want to sit in the shade or tan. The location of the apartments can't be beaten. 5 mins walk away from 2 supermarkets, 5 mins from the dolmus stop, 5 mins from the beach and 5 mins from the tourist centre of Calis and its very many bars and restaurants. Calis is a very family friendly resort and in our experience, does not seem to attract rowdy, heavy drinking groups. It is also a perfect couples resort. Bambu is also 5 mins away from the Calis Water Taxi station, an absolute MUST try experience. A gentle ride up the river and out into the stunning bay area and a drop off on the beautiful waterfront of Fethiye town. 30 mins each way for 5 Turkish Lira each way per person. The same guys that run the water taxi co-op also provide day trips on their boats. Do ask them for details. Enjoy your time in Calis, I promise you will be back.

"Simply the best!"
If you are looking for a place to stay in Fethiye/Calis beach area - look no further. The building is ideally located - everything one may need in Calis is within a very short walking distance: the beach, cafes and restaurants, the promenade, groceries shops, dolmus (small local buses) stops, aqua park, water taxi stop, currency exchanges, etc. We rented the "penthouse" apartment, and had a chance to admire our own personal sunsets from the balcony, whenever we didn't feel like sharing the view with others. We found the apartment exactly as described, and apart from the fact that it was clean and well-maintained, it immediately felt like home. The owners deserve special praise - Ann and Gary are not only wonderful hosts, ready to give advice on whatever the visitors are interested in, but also simply great people. Thank you! I can confidently recommend this property to friends, who are ready to disregard a luxurious, but soulless hotel in favor of a home-away-from-home, managed by a friendly couple.

We had a brilliant time and hope to come back again. Many thanks for your wonderful hospitality. Janet
We had a great time staying at Bambu apartments at Calis Beach, near Fethiye. The pool was just perfect- 30 degrees C when Elly went for a pre-breakfast dip. The location is great- just a few minutes walk from the centre of Calis. Clean apartment, good AC, pool right outside (never busy- normally just us swimming). Having our own fridge and washinemachine was perfect.

About the Owner
We are Gary and Ann Gammage. We come from Bristol and have two grown-up boys. We have fallen in love with Turkey and spend the summer here. We run Bambu Apartments (tk3982 and tk2184), a small block of just 5 holiday apartments in Calis and we own one other sea-front apartment in Calis (TK1706) which we rent out, so that we can spend even more time in this beautiful country. We're both PADI diving instructors and spend our free time diving and teaching.

Why this location?
On our first visit we fell in love with this area of Turkey. It has everything you could possibly want from a holiday area - stunning scenery, fabulous climate, history, friendly people, and most importantly for us, sea, boats and diving. When we found Bambu Apartments we felt that it was perfect! We prefer to walk, cycle or take public transport rather than rent a car, so it had to have level easy access to to all amenities, an easy stroll home from the restaurants and bars, a supermarket nearby, easy access to the dolmus (local buses that run every couple of minutes and cost pennies), and close to the sea. The pool and sun terrace give plenty of space to relax in, and the small number of apartments at Bambu mean that you are never crowded.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Bambu manages to be amazingly peaceful yet very close to all amenities, and the Penthouse apartment has amazing panoramic sea views. Everything you need can be reached within a few minutes, by foot or by dolmus - beach, bars, restaurants and shops. Local attractions include a water park, Fethiye harbour, 12 island boat trips, Lycian Tombs, Ampitheatre, Sakklikent Gorge, Oludeniz beach and the Blue Lagoon. The apartment has free parking on the road outside which all guests can use. We have recently set up a PADI diving resort based at Bambu so for those who want to learn to dive, take their diving further, or maybe are just interested in trying diving in the pool, we can help
