About the Owner

Our names are Claire and Martin. We have owned Yelken B4 since 2005 following previous considerations in Spain and France. So glad we chose Turkey! We enjoy eating out in the local Kalkan restaurants but also venturing further afield to enjoy the culture, diversity and the wealth of difference within such a small region. Since buying our apartment seven years ago we have embraced the Turkish culture and now have many local friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

1. The apartment’s cleanliness, fittings, balcony, and view.

2. The small ‘welcome pack’ of groceries. Thank you!

3. The lovely, clean, well maintained pool.

4. The apartment’s privacy and surrounding vegetation.

5. Tarik’s friendliness and trust.

6. Other friendly residents.

7. The apartment’s location near the town.

8. Somewhere close to park my car.

Accommodation and location were perfect. All the local people we met were very friendly and helpful. Sampled some excellent food and the local wine was surprisingly good. Taxi drivers were all helpful and very inexpensive. We really enjoyed our holiday in Kalkan. The apartment at the Yelken was in a great location and was very smartly furnished. We really appreciated the welcome goodies. The pool area was very clean and well maintained. Everyone at the Yelken was friendly. Our friends recommended the Yelken to us and we will certainly recommend it after such a wonderful holiday.

A perfect holiday destination.

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a lovely holiday in Kalkan. The apartment was perfect for us - comfortable, tastefully decorated and well-equipped. The views across the bay and over towards the hill are beautiful, especially first thing in the morning and in the evening as the sun is setting. The pool is just the right size and was never over-crowded during our stay; often, we had it to ourselves for much of the day. The location is also great - a comfortable walking distance from the centre of town, but in a relaxing and peaceful area with some really good restaurants and bars.

Kalkan and the surrounding area is just lovely and with so much to do and see; an unexpected highlight for us was swimming with turtles at the Indigo Beach Club.

Martin and Claire were so helpful with advice on restaurants etc. - we tried several (all were excellent). Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful apartment.

Bes Yildiz Yelken Apartments Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at the property and our tenth in Kalkan. It is very well appointed and spotlessly clean. The outside pool area is also kept clean and tidy. It has a stunning location, with views of the sea and mountains from the balcony and pool areas. There is always someone on hand to greet you on arrival - no matter what time and also to deal with any queries you may have. There is a new bistro/resaurant on the premises and bar/restaurants close by. There are also a couple of mini-markets within a short walk. The walk into town takes 20 mins. and there are taxis available at competitive rates. We have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Kalkan Sept 2015

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely, clean, fresh apartment, just seconds' walk from the pool (and jacuzzi)! And there are panoramic views out to sea afforded by its elevated position. Sitting up the hill from the main town meant the apartment and locale were quiet and relaxed but not isolated - local shops for bread, etc, and a restaurant on the ground floor with delicious meals at great prices and short walks to beach clubs, etc. Obviously Kalkan is quite far from the airport but after stepping onto a boat for a day trip (several tour operators in the town), I had no thoughts or cares for the airport journey! I would recommend this to others - wish I was back there myself! Thank you.

A wonderful place to stay - would recommend +++

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely and clean and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. The location was ideal as it was nice and peaceful but near enough to walk to the harbour/beach clubs. We had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday and we would recommend this property to others. The boat trip on the Pala boat was a particular highlight and the addition of the Yelkin restaurant just downstairs is excellent. We would love to come and stay in this apartment again!

A super first holiday in Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a super stay in a Martin and Claire's apartment. We are five and were able to live comfortably for our fortnight's stay. There is everything that you need in the kitchen to cook and to prepare drinks, whilst the two bathrooms were fine as well. We made lots of use of the swimming pool and jacuzzi. Access to Kalkan itself was very straightforward. We recommend it most warmly as a venue for a super holiday. Martin and Claire were very helpful in providing advice and guidance on the apartment and on Kalkan. Thank you.

From the Owner

We went on holiday in September 2005 having previously been to Europe for many years. Sitting on the plane we said 'if we don't like it we will make the best of it!' and we loved it so much we went back in December 2005 and bought! Kalkan is the most fantastic place! We have now so many friends and always look forward to the next visit.
