A perfect apartment in a beautiful setting.
Our third visit to Kalkan and the visit to this apartment was a wonderful break! The town and coastline has everything! history, culture, great restaurants and a nightlife that caters for all ages. This great apartment, views, 25m pool, wonderful service and genuine friendliness of the staff there made this short holiday one of the best ever. The positioning is perfect! close enough to town to amble in yet just right for a little peace and tranquility.
We have just returned from a two week stay at mavi koy. The apartment
is absolutely wonderful, terrific views and everything you could wish for in a "home from home". The complex has a 24hr reception, is extremely well maintained and has an inviting pool area. We have stayed at this complex numerous times and can assure anyone wishing to stay at Mavi koy - will not be disappointed. Thanks again Natalie and Steve, we are looking forward to staying in your apartment again next year.
No Fawlts here!
Basil Fawlty once asked one of his belligerent guests what do you expect to see from a Torquay hotel window? "The Sydney Opera House or the Hanging Gardens of Babylon?"
What you get from Mavi Koy is even better - one of the greatest, most picturesque views a holidaymaker could ever dream of.
Looking out over Kalkan Bay from either of the two Mavi Koy balconies is a most wonderful spectacle with the beautiful clue blue waters down below and the stunning hillsides circling the bay.
This was our first holiday to Kalkan and I'm pretty sure it won't be our last. A truly awe-inspiring destination for a family holiday.
The brilliant penthouse apartment catered for our absolute every need, was superbly equipped and very tastefully decorated.
The swimming pool was large, clean and a wonderful retreat after a day's sightseeing.
All in all, there really are no fawlts at Mavi Koy!
The apartment was beautifully appointed and lacked for nothing. It was spacious and with two balconies it was a
pleasure to soak up the sun whilst enjoying the views across Kalkan Bay. The pool area was superb and very quiet during our visit. The staff were fantastic, helpful,cheerful and so welcoming. It was a bit of a walk into Kalkan but that was good for the waistline given the wonderful choice of restaurants in the town itself and there is so much to do and see in the area. This time there was just the two of us but we would love to take the family on a future occasion. I can't recommend Mavi Koy highly enough.
Absolutely Loved It...!
A fantastic two storey apartment with excellent facilities. Mavi Koy has an amazing well furnished roof terrace with a spectacular view across Kalkan, a very well accomodated kitchen to include a dishwasher and water cooler, three fabulous bedrooms and three bathrooms. We had a fantastic holiday made all the better for such a great choice of residence, we know the apartment complex very well and have holidayed there every year since 2009.
What a fantastic place.
This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Mavi Koy .
It has fantastic views and the penthouse bedroom on the roof terrace is amazing to sit up in the morning and look over the bays.
The apartment is very clean and is cleaned daily.
The swimming pool is very clean and very family friendly.
It is only a short walk from the old town where there are some fantastic restaurants catering for everybodies needs.
Taxis are very reasonable .
I have now booked my 3rd stay at Mavi Koy
