About the property

Apartment in Kalkan, Turkey - Ideal Location, Short Walk to Beach and Town Yet Quiet and Secluded

Our apartment is ideally located within an easy 5 minute walk to the quaint cobbled streets of old Kalkan, shops, restaurants, bars, bus and taxi stop. The beach, harbour and swimming decks are 10 minutes walk away. Kalkan town, at night, is were it all happens! Shops stay open till late, and the evenings are spent strolling down the fascinating cobbled streets, meeting new friends and greeting those you already know, stopping for a drink at a pavement bar or negotiating to purchase that special Turkish carpet! The location is very quiet and secluded, yet you are right in the heart of the action - no need for a car or an expensive taxi home after a long day! It is in a small block of just 6 apartments, who share a very large sparkling pool, meticulously maintained. The apartment block has a fresh coat of steel blue paint this year. See our weblink below.

About Beryl

We have been involved in the travel industry for 30 years and have owned our own guesthouses for much of this time. This has helped us understand just what a guest wants and how best to make a comfortable, hassle free holiday possible for guests. We love travel ourselves and enjoy helping people find the right holiday to suit their needs. We live in Hermanus, South Africa,which is similar, in many ways to Kalkan, one of the reasons we love it so much! We, too, live with a view of a beautiful bay (Walker Bay) which is surrounded by mountains, as Kalkan is.

Beryl purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Beryl chose Kalkan

Turkey is our favourite country! We love the friendliness and hospitality of the people, the nature, beautiful clear sea, the food, the culture. Kalkan was our choice for being small enough to be personal, and yet have all that one wants in a holiday destination.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is so central - to the sea and beaches, the charm of the Old Town, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, transport, all within easy walking distance, yet in a quiet location, away from crowds and noisy disturbances.

Dawn Apartment, Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time we have stayed in this apartment.

We really like it as it's always quiet and some days we get the huge pool to ourselves.

The apartment is well equipped, clean and comfortable and is only a 5 min walk into town.

There is also a good selection of supermarkets within a few minutes walk.

We will return in the future.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained and all needs anticipated. Clean and comfortable. But be forewarned: The hill is steep and Kalkan is full of biting bugs in late March.

Excellent apartment and facilities

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at "Dawn" apartment and enjoyed it as much as we did before. The apartment is very comfortable, all the facilities you need and well equipped.

The pool is brilliant. Very big compared to a lot of apartments in the area, and because there are only 6 apartments in the block it's never too busy. In fact, most days we had it to ourselves!

Excellent location as well. 5 min stroll into town and only a 2 min walk to the Yali supermarket.

Will definitely be returning in the future.

We have just returned from a fantastic two weeks in Kalkan!

The apartment is a lovely and spacious in an ideal location, just minutes walk to bars and restaurants, yet quiet enough to enjoy relaxing by the pool or on the terrace. There are a few smaller supermarkets, green grocers and bakeries again working walking distance to pick up any supplies. It may be worth noting that there are some very steep slopes down/up to and from the old town where restaurants/bars/shops are located.

We have fallen in love with Kalkans charms and we are already planning a return to this lovely apartment and beautiful seaside town.

We have been extremely impressed with the communication with Les and Beryl, from booking, arranging transfers and feedback from our travels.

We cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a fantastic time! It is a special place! We look forward to welcoming you back! Kalkan is a steep resort, but the upside is the wonderful Taurus mountains that surround it. The walk from town is managable, and gets those muscles working! We can them "Kalkan calves!"

Great Value for Money

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday. The web description was accurate. The owners booked the airport transfer which worked very well. The apartment was spotless and well equipped.The location was fine and entailed only a short stroll to the pedestrianized town centre with it's numerous restaurants and shops.

We loved Kalkan. We found the locals to be very pleasant and friendly. We will certainly be returning. "Dawn" apartment represents very good value for money and we do not hesitate in recommending it.
