About the Owner
Shelly is an American, originally from California and Gunilla is Swedish born. We have been based in Sussex in the UK for many years now but have been coming to the sunny Mediterranean region regularly for about the past 12 years for our holidays.
Gunilla has her own very successful practice as a naturopath and homeopath. Shelly has his own small company and is often on the road in Europe as a result.
We have 3 grown children and 2 cats.
We love travelling and especially have fallen in love with the sunny climate and wonderful food of the beautiful Mediterranean regions we regularly visit.

The apartment was extremely comfortable, like home-from-home...we really enjoyed the roof terrace with its stunning view and the facilities within the apartment were exceptional.

Loved our experience...everything was available that we needed and was in great condition. Roof terrace was great especially with the bamboo shade...it was good to be able to watch English language TV if you felt like it. Loved the decor and welcomed the air-con. C. H. & S.H. from Wales

From the Owner
“We first decided to visit Turkey in 2001 and spent 2 wonderful weeks in Kalkan - fell in love with the area, the pace of life, the fresh food, and especially the turquoise sea and always clear blue sunny skies. We returned to Kalkan in 2002 for our summer holiday and again loved it, and in a somewhat impulsive moment had a look at a few properties, out of curiosity really, with no intention of buying. When we saw this apartment we both knew it was the right thing for us to go ahead and buy it, and we were able to do so. We have visited Kalkan every year since then, always enjoying staying in our own apartment, simply but comfortably furnished, with easy access to the sea (5 minute walk) or to the town centre (20 min walk). A perfect place to recharge batteries, and to chill out”

From the Owner
“Kalkan has no high rise or humongous apartment complexes. The beach club areas are built up on the rocks, comfortable and not too large, with crystal clear turquoise water to swim in or just gaze upon. Kalkan town is a 20 min walk away with its huge selection of restaurants, craftsmen, shops, harbour, etc. always making for an interesting visit or evening out. Our apartment has been gradually renovated and furnished over the past 12 years, so that it is now very simply, tastefully, harmoniously and comfortably set up for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. This is the third year we have decided to make it available for rental. A main feature is our large(70m2), sole use roof terrace with a panoramic view of Kalamar Bay and surrounds;fully set up with a large covered pergola, sun beds, BBQ, etc.”
