Guestbook comments from the owner
Just a short note to thank you for your part in ensuring we had the best family holiday we've had in a long time - your apartment and its location is absolutely the last word on everything we were looking for and just made all the difference, including the air conditioning, a blessing, and water cooler too - what a great touch.
Your pre arranged transfers and welcome pack were spot on.
For our first visit to Turkey and Kalkan we have been impressed, the whole experience has been faultless. We haven't had our fill of Kalkan yet, thanks again.
Robert, Scotland July 2010.
Everything about the apartment was just perfect and exactly as described, including that amazing view! We all had an amazing holiday and were blown away by Kalkan. What a stunningly beautiful place, in every sense! Thank you for sharing such a dream location with us, we certainly would love to return to Kalkan again soon and can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else.

We've just returned after a 16 night stay in Zakkum apartment. It was our first time in Turkey and I hope it won't be our last. Adrian and Jane were really helpful prior to departure; they arranged our airport transfers and car hire and always replied promptly to any questions we had. The apartment itself is in a lovely location, both in terms of the Mediterranean complex, and Kalkan. It was very well equipped, with many "extras" including a juicer and coolbag (so useful to take on car journeys). We also thought it was a lovely touch that there were postcards in the apartment. Kalkan was lovely, although tourist numbers were down by 50-70% and this meant that the numerous restaurant owners were quite tenacious in trying to win business. The plus side was that prior booking wasn't essential, as I gather it can be usually. We liked the beach clubs and took three boat trips, all of which were excellent. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.
Thanks so much for our stay!
We have been to Kalkan many times and this was definitely the best apartment that we have stayed in. The welcome pack was much appreciated and not having to take our own beach towels was also a bonus. We would definitely like to return next year.
A beautiful apartment with a lovely view!
Lovely welcome and a much appreciated welcome pack upon arrival. Apartment was very clean and a real home from home. We are a family of five with three 18+ children and the apartment was a comfortable size - our daughter particularly like her single room.
The apartment is located very close to the town with a short flat walk there. We never tired of the view from the very pretty balcony and there are a couple of pools located near the apartment too!
This was our third time to Kalkan and has been our favourite apartment yet. Kalkan has a lot of lovely restaurants and is great for shopping - especially silver! What's not to like?
The owners were very helpful and prompt in all correspondence and organised our very efficient transfers, everything went very smooth from start to finish.
Thank you we had a lovely holiday and will certainly return :-)
The apartment was just what we needed being in such a good location for the town. A fabulous view that you never tire of, comfortable, clean and spacious and everything thought of.
We loved our stay - thank you
Excellent location & apartment
The owners were prompt & really helpful with all correspondance.
The apartment is perfectly located being an easy flat 5 min walk to the main town area of Kalkan, where there are supermarkets & hundreds of wonderful restuarants.
The location has an unspoilt & uninterupted view across the bay as there are no buildings in front of it.
You are literally a few steps to a lovely pool which you share with just a few other apartments. You have your own pool side beds to relax on.
The apartments & gardens are beautifully kept, clean & pretty.
You cannot tire of the wonderful view from your balcony across the bay.
The apartment is looked after & is a home from home. The air conditioning a must for the summer heat & the water cooler a lovely touch.
We would certainly recommend this lovely apartment & would use it again should we return to the lovely area of kalkan.
Never been to Kalkan before and was not disappointed. The apartment was absolutley lovely, comfortable, clean with all amenites required and to top it all superb views. A charming complex, quiet and beautifully maintained, very private and relaxing place to stay. We enjoyed many and early morning breakfast and lovley warm evenings enjoying a drink or two on the balcony overlooking the bay, what a view, our eyes nevered tired of looking at it. A very short walk from the town, where ther choice of places to eat was second to none. No matter where we chose to eat the food was with out fault a gormet delight. Shopping in the quaint streets running down to the harbour was a most delightful experience everyone friendly and helpful. We loved it so much could have stayed for another week or two. I am sure we shall return as this has gone top of oour list of holiday destinations.
From the Owner
“Purchased new from developer in 2004. We chose this location because of its close proximity to the village and the outstanding view from the balcony. We have not seen a view to better it anywhere in the world. We bought 2 apartments and knocked them together at the planning stage to provide a good sized three bedroom 1st floor apartment to share with family and friends. We have been doing just that for the last 10 years and will continue to do so, but feel it is time now to let others enjoy it when we are not there.”
Activity and Interests
Kalkan's Harbour, and Blue Flag beach is a 5 to 10 minute stroll from the Apartment. There are also several excellent beach clubs situated around the bay of Kalkan; these can be easily reached by free water taxi from the harbour. Kaputas beach is a 10 minute drive away and Patara beach, a world heritage site, famous for its 18km of white sand and clear water is 25 minutes away by car/dolmus. Daily boat-trips can be taken from the harbour around the islands and inlets in Kalkan and Kalamar Bays.
The newly built airport at Dalaman is more efficient and faster to travel through and with the opening of the Gocek tunnel, the car journey from airport to Kalkan is approx. 1 hour and 30 minutes. We can arrange private airport transfers to and from the Apartment. Car hire is not essential in Kalkan as all facilities are so close to the Apartment. Outings to local places of interest can be accessed by dolmus. However car hire is available in the village if required.
Kalkan is amid many places of interest. The local town of Kas is approx. 30 minutes away to the east on the dolmus. There is also Fethiye, a delightful harbour town lying in easy reach of Olu Deniz, an hour away to the west by dolmus. Also within an hours drive are Xanthos and Sydyma, the spectacular Saklikent gorge and the underwater remains at Kekova.
Built around an ancient Greek/Turkish harbour on the beautiful Turquoise coast, this small town has developed to provide everything needed by the modern tourist, without losing any of its charm and without being spoilt by tourism. Kalkan is an endless source of narrow, winding streets that twist their way down to the harbour. Despite its size, Kalkan offers a quaint village atmosphere with its shops (selling Turkish carpets, leather, spices, pottery, gold and silver), bars and many excellent restaurants. Everything is within easy reach of the clear blue Mediterranean sea, and boat trips can be organised. Nature lovers will find many walks and places of interest both within Kalkan and also in the vicinity. Farming surrounds the area, and a meal in the local trout farm/restaurants set high in the mountains behind Kalkan should not be missed.
There are banks with ATM, post office, several supermarkets all within easy reach of the Apartment. Kalkan is serviced by tour operators, buses, coaches and taxis. Every Thursday there is an excellent market in Kalkan offering leather goods, silver, clothing, pottery, linen, fresh fruit and vegetables and much more.

From the Owner
“We enjoy the friendly atmosphere amongst the residents of the Mediterranean Apartments as in the rest of Kalkan. It is rarely overcrowded and we never tire of that view. The combination of the two apartments provides considerably more space for 4/5 people than the Duplex apartments on the same complex.”
