About Stuart & Jenni Bowes

Jenni and I live in Laughton en le Morthen in South Yorkshire. We have two sons and three grandchildren.We are both retired teachers having spent all our professional lives working in education. Having visited Kalkan for more than twelve years and always staying in hotels, we decided to buy our lovely apartment from new in 2004. It is a simple indication of how much we have fallen in love with Kalkan and the Turkish people residing there. We visit Kalkan three or four times every year, squeezing in between the times when our guests are there. Kalkan has weaved its magic on us from the very first visit. We have every confidence that it will do the same for you.

Stuart & Jenni Bowes purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Stuart & Jenni Bowes chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

During one of our many holidays in Kalkan we came across the Saneil apartments shortly after their completion but before they were sold. After visiting the site and seeing for ourselves the stunning location and the quality of the building, we decided to buy. Being lovers of Kalkan for many years, we felt that this could only be seen as "a dream come true"! After eight years, Jenni and I can certainly confirm this. Everything about the apartment has confirmed to us that it is a superb acquisition, based upon its position, quality of accommodation and location to the village. This is reinforced by the comments from our guests, many of whom make return bookings to the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

The first impression any first-time guests experience is the stunning location of this complex of apartments. The views from the extensive terrace to Kalkan and Kalamar are breathtaking and unbroken. Directly in front of the apartment is the beautiful, large swimming pool with centrally positioned palm trees. Although the apartment is on the ground floor it does overlook the pool and this is very helpful to any parents who wish to oversee their children from the terrace(see Gallery photos). The apartment has its own sunbeds and umbrellas dedicated to the sole use by all guests. Relaxed sunbathing around the pool is guaranteed at all times! 24 hour security and maintenance is on site for all. Guests and their peace-of-mind.

Exceeded our high expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Kalkan and we couldn’t believe our luck with the excellent standard of accommodation and service offered by Stewart & Jenni.

We arrived in the early hours after a very swift transfer organised by Stewart & were shown to our apartment. The facilities in the apartment are excellent with a beautiful modern kitchen inc. a water dispenser which holds 19 litres, when empty the staff replace it for just 6 lira so no struggling with water bottles from the supermarket! There are fantastic views and the lovely shady terrace is a very welcome retreat from the August sun. The spacious bedrooms have plenty of storage, the two bathrooms are modern and the efficient air conditioning cools the apartment quickly.

There is so much to see in and around Kalkan, we hired a car and visited the neighbouring Kapatus beach with its turquoise water, Patara beach & visited the ruins and the Saklikent Gorge and got all the way to the end waterfall (this was a particular highlight!). We went on the water rafting and had a mud bath which was an experience! We hired a boat from the harbour and were lucky enough to see the turtles up close.

There are a number of beach clubs, Kalamar has a free taxi and the Beach Park has a waterslide, the free sea taxi goes from the harbour. Kalkan has many restaurants and two (Aqua & Café Vita) just a short walk down the hill from the apartment.

The staff at the complex were so helpful and friendly & it was beautifully clean. Kalkan is beautiful & together with the local people it managed to bewitch us with its charm we will be certainly be returning in the future. The Jenni apartment would definitely be our first choice.

Jenni is a superbly appointed apartment and Stuart is outstanding as an owner in terms of his helpfulness and responsiveness. An unequivocal 5 out of 5. It is worth breaking this review into 3 parts (1) Jenni (2) Saneil (3) Kalkan.

JENNI THE APPARTMENT: Very well decorated and furnished, probably better than many of the other Saneil apartments. The kitchen is especially well laid out with lots of equipment, crockery and cutlery. Lots of paperback books in the bookshelf and we counted three packs of playing cards. Stuart provides beach towels so don’t pack those. Great view from the balcony and just high enough to be private from those down by the pool.

Saneil Complex: There are five blocks each with three apartments all sharing the pool.

Saneil complex has a manager on site most of the time. The cleaners are excellent. We were there in peak season with almost all apartments occupied and occasionally it was busy around the pool (but not unpleasantly so) often only a few people were out there. A great things is that each apartment has clearly designated sunbeds and shades so no need to rush to reserve at 5am. Many people we spoke to (it is very sociable around the pool) had been back to this complex year in year out which speaks volumes. The view is fantastic. There are a couple of local restaurants and shops. It takes about 30 minutes to walk downhill to the old town and costs about 14 TL for a taxi back.

The town is bizarrely British – it is rare (almost non-existent) to hear French, German or Russian voices. There are over 180 restaurants and Tripadvisor is a good way to pick and choose. Do book a boat trip well in advance – we liked Yildez.

Owner's Response: Thank you David for taking the time and trouble to write such a wonderful review about our apartment and your family holiday to Kalkan. It is a source of great comfort to both Jenni and myself that you enjoyed the apartment and everything that it offered to such an extent that it seemingly enhanced your holiday enormously. The fixtures and fittings that we offer are very subjective, but we do strive to furnish the apartment in a tasteful and relaxing manner whilst retaining a Turkish influence throughout. Your obvious enthusiasm and enjoyment of things you experienced during your fortnight holiday confirms that our hopes and wishes whilst providing an apartment our guests will really enjoy are being met. Thank you.

This was our second year in Jenni and Stuart's apartment and we loved it. It's got a view to die for, a brand new kitchen which works super well, comfortable beds, excellent air conditioning units and two sparkling bathrooms. And wi-fi to help post those holiday snaps on Facebook! Because it's in a complex, there is always someone on duty to help you when you arrive, which we really appreciated as we had a late arrival which was delayed. Not a problem! We made lots of use of the large swimming pool (a good size for swimming laps, whereas so many others are more like paddling pools). The apartment's location means it's quiet compared to some places in Kalkan, although there ARE a lots of steep steps to climb if you decide to walk back from town....but that's Kalkan for you. Steep hills, but also cheap taxis. We all lost weight this year, which almost never happens on holiday, but that was from all the walking, the good healthy food (if you go Turkish, a plate of chips does not need to pass your lips) and the swimming. Stuart and Jenni were extremely helpful at every stage of the booking process (and even when we were there) and we couldn't recommend their apartment more highly.

Kalkan Dream

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step inside the Jenni Apartment you feel immediately at home. Jenni and Stuart have thought of everything to make the apartment so welcoming and comfortable so that your holiday can start immediately. The location is just perfect with the most wonderful uninterrupted views from the large terrace where you can soak up the sun and enjoy evening drinks and watch the beautiful sunsets. The apartment is kept spotlessly clean by the very friendly maids who come in daily to empty bins and then 3 times a week to change towels and linen and thoroughly clean the apartment. The local supermarket is just 5 mins down the hill and are very helpful and happy to deliver your groceries. The complex manager is again so friendly and helpful. This is our fourth visit to Kalkan and it is like returning home, everyone is so so friendly and it truly is a magical place. Jenni and Stuart are so friendly and helpful throughout the booking procedure and beyond and provide all the information you require to make your holiday enjoyable and relaxing. The walk into town is effortless being downhill but a taxi home is recommended which are inexpensive. The rooftop restaurants provide wonderful food, views and service and the buzz of the town, colourful harbour and shops make this a perfect holiday destination. Do not hesitate, stay at the Jenni apartment and you will have all the ingredients for an unforgettable holiday experience.

Wonderful Holiday in Kalcan

  • 5 of 5

We have just come home after a lovely relaxing holiday at The Jenni apartment which is one of 15 luxury apartments in the outskirts of Kalkan.

The Jenni apartment has everything you need for your stay and the neighbouring owners are all so friendly, (even shared with us their pool floaties with us).

Stuart and Jenni are so helpful and provide you with lots of useful information and advice, they really get you excited for your holiday too including a dvd to whet your appetite of what you can expect when you get there.

The complex is immaculate, with incredible breathtaking views, the manager is lovely and very helpful. The transfer from the airport was daunting with two little ones (5 and 3) and a pregnant mum, but Aby Tours were fantastic and picked us up in a luxury air con minibus complete with a friendly driver and a bottle of water each. We arrived in no time at all to be greeted by a friendly face and shown to our apartment.

The pool is refreshing and kept sparkly clean, it's great for playing in but also long enough for a good workout too. Sun beds are really comfy as well which is always a bonus.

We walked into Kalcan most nights, it's about a 10min walk down hill but we decided not to attempt walking back up with the children so we just used the taxi service which is very inexpensive.

We fell in love with Kalcan in 2013 and shall definitely be returning next year and every year after that I expect!

...Book your holiday now at the Jenni, you won't regret it! :O)

Thanks Stuart & Jenni, you have a lovely holiday home.

Further Details:

Kalkan is a picturesque fishing village with a great deal of history. At its centre lies the harbour with a mix of local fishing craft, gulets and visiting yachts. Guests can find the perfect sea adventure here from the many on offer each day. Kalkan's streets are narrow and not flat, therefore not really suitable for guests with mobility problems. They do, however, contain many local boutique shops which are a nightly attraction to all tourists. Although Kalkan is a very sleepy village by day whilst the tourists enjoy the sun and surroundings, it comes alive in the evening as people make their nightly pilgrimage to one of the many, many individual roof-top restaurants for which Kalkan is most famous. Here you will find menus and wines to excite all tastes. Quite a number of these restaurants feature annually in reports provided by national newspapers in the UK. Restaurants which, although sophisticated and chic, are still very Turkish and suited to most people's pockets. Supermarkets can be found in the village and they provide a free home delivery service for you and your provisions(you have to ask for this service!)! There is an excellent weekly market each Thursday where you can barter for goods (T-shirts, jeans, spices etc etc) as well as food produce from the local farmers. Not to be missed! There are several banks with ATM machines and a Post Office, all in the village.
