Peaceful Residential Location With Private Balcony Overlooking The Beach And Harbour. Two further beds available in the living area
This property enjoys an ideal holiday location in quiet and picturesque Kas, From the balcony there is a marvellous panoramic views of Kas itself and the scenic beaches at Limanagzi and Hidayetin Koyuand. The Greek island of Meis is in the near distance straight ahead over he bay. Access by a stepped footpath right down to the public beach. Kas retains its traditional charm with cobbled streets and wooden balconies.
We think the best features of our apartment are: its balcony with magnificent sea and mountain views; its location in a quiet, flower-lined residential street - with no through traffic; and, relative to other accommodations in the hilly town of Kas, its ease of access to the town centre. Start your day with breakfast on the balcony overlooking the busy little harbour, and finish with a sundowner as you admire rosy sunsets over the water, and twinkling lights in the town below. Five minutes' walk takes you to a public beach and swimming and diving facilities, and ten to fifteen minutes to the lively town square, harbour and bus station, shops, galleries, tea houses, bars, restaurants,
The access to the apartment is by descending 7 gentle external steps (as shown in our photographs) and then ascending 8 steps once inside.
The apartment is light and airy with windows and shutters, full air conditioning.
Top Traveller Review
About the Owner
We are a couple who enjoy travelling, and have visited many places around the world, mainly through Ben's work but also on holiday. We love to visit our Kas apartment whenever we can, for a bit of relaxation.
Ben is a retired engineer and Phyllis a retired librarian. Our permanent home is a converted steading building in rural Aberdeenshire, Scotland, which we have taken many years to create. Our "leisure" time there is mostly spent gardening or decorating. The house will never be completely finished, as there's always something else to do!
We enjoy traditional musical events and ceilidhs, and doing a bit of hill walking, but we rarely find the time to do as much of these activities as we'd like. Our family are grown up and out in the world. Two much-loved cats share our home in Scotland.

Just a short note to thank you for renting your place to us. It was as advertised – and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kas. Mehmet provided excellent service.

Your agent, Mehmet, was very charming and reliable in meeting us on the night we arrived. We loved the apartment - both the apartment itself and the location and view, which was astonishingly beautiful. We would very much like to stay in your apartment again. To be honest, the whole thing exceeded expectations so thank you for making our stay so lovely and relaxing

The flat was lovely, really well kept and welcoming, the view from the balcony is stunning. Kas is just a lovely place to relax, this was our second time in Kas and we are planning to came back next year to continue our diving training. Definitely on of my husband and I favourite places.
a big thank you
We had been to Kas before, but only had a short time there and wanted to go for a longer stay. We looked at several different villas etc before deciding on Phyllis and Bens apartment and we were not disappointed. It was accurately described and very well appointed. The views were worth staying there alone and we had a lovely time watching the boats going in and out of the harbour from the terrace. Mehmet who met us was great and always on hand should we have needed him which was good to know. We ate out most of the time and really enjoyed a meal at the Maya restaurant so much that w found ourselves revisiting. Once again we would like to say a big thank you to Phyllis and Ben for the use of their apartment and to say that hopefully we will be back.

Lovely view great location
Nice clean apartment good location to Kas town centre. Disappointed to find no welcome pack when we arrived had to go out and find a shop a 11.30pm at night to basics milk water etc.
What a fabulous view
An excellent one bedroomed apartment with and large balcony that has fabulous views of Kas and the sea. As we were there late in the year darkness fell early and we could have a candlelit evening meal overlooking the lights of Kas. The descriptions and photos os the property are accurate.Will stop here again. Thandks for a very enjoyable week.

Mehmet took us to the apartment which was a good distance from the centre of Kas. Not too far to walk but far enough to be quiet and enjoying wonderful views over the town and out to sea. The apartment is a very generous size and proportion. Very nicely decorated and with plenty of handy appliances ( washing machine & dishwasher ) The air conditioning was also very welcome on a few occasions. The little touches which Phyllis and Ben have left, such as sun hats, snorkels and English novels all make the stay extremely comfortable. We would absolutely recommend Kas and this truly brilliant apartment.
A great place
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely apartment which is accurately described on the website. It is clean, well equipped and bright. The file of relevant information for visitors is clear, comprehensive and useful. The manager was pleasant, friendly and very helpful. So we would recommend staying here to enjoy the many delights of Kas within easy walking distance and to chill on the balcony with the wonderful view of Kas, the harbour, boats coming and going, Meis and the beautiful sunsets!
From the Owner
“It was love at first sight with the town of Kas, when we visited first in 2008, on holiday from Azerbaijan where we were living at the time. In contrast to busy Baku, Kas was a small piece of Paradise with its pretty harbour, cobbled streets and the smell of jasmine everywhere. It remains unspoilt, making the relative difficulty getting here from the airports totally worth the effort. We bought a smaller apartment first, right in the town centre above a florist's shop, and renovated it completely. We loved it, but gradually came to wish we had our own sea view, and a place to enjoy the evening sundowner without chasing the sun around the bay. We looked around a little and upgraded to the present apartment in 2010. Again, it was love at first sight, and the start of more renovations!”
Activity and Interests
Access to the apartment.
There are 7 easy steps down to building's front door and once inside there are a further 8 steps up to get to our apartments front door.
A five minute walk by footpath and steps will take you down to the nearest beach, known locally as "Small Pebble Beach" with its own bars and restaurants, free use of loungers and umbrellas on sunbathing platforms, and access to the sea from beach, diving platforms or steps. A variety of other beaches including "Large Pebble Beach" and Limanagzi Bay are accessible on foot or by water taxi from the harbour. Sandy beaches are further afield and require transport to get there e.g Kaputas or Patara
Nearest airports are Dalaman (approximately 150 Km, and a 2 hours transfer time) or Antalya (200 Km, three hours transfer). Various Turkish domestic airlines provide frequent flight connections from Istanbul to both airports. We are happy to arrange a reasonably priced transfer for you (230 TL). Once in Kas you don't need a car as everything is accessible on foot, or by taxi; bus or dolmus transport is readily available for places further afield. The bus station is 10 minutes' walk away.
Kas, although small, is the local market town as well as a tourist destination, and you'll have no difficulty in finding banking and postal facilities, medical and dental practices, pharmacies, supermarkets and hardware stores, should you need them.
Numerous tours, jeep safaris and boat trips are commercially available on a daily basis to surrounding places of interest, such as the Saklikent Gorge, the sunken city of Kekova, or the Greek Island of Meis (or Kastellorlzo). Most tours include swimming stops and lunch. Car and scooter hire, and boat charters, are also available.
For the adventurous, there are paragliding, scuba diving (PADDI courses available), mountain biking, sea kayaking, canyoning, or hiking the `Lycian Way'. The whole area is rich in sites of historic interest such as well preserved Lycian rock tombs and sarcophagi; Roman and Greek remains (temple and amphitheatre), many of which are to be found in the town itself.
Kas is a shoppers' paradise full of boutiques selling original clothes, handicrafts, local silver and gold jewellery, and designer leather goods. Upmarket galleries and antique shops sell high quality original Turkish artwork, hand made kilims and carpets. At the Friday farmers' market you can buy fresh produce such as olive oil and local cheeses.
Restaurants and bars are too numerous and varied to mention individually and we all find our own favourites. Many are located in beautiful secluded gardens or in lively harbour-side settings; most offer typical Turkish food and local wines; some offer live music and dancing under the stars; all are friendly and welcoming.
We leave local guide books in the apartment (not to be removed, please), and there's a Tourist Information office on the main square. Most people in Kas will speak to you in English should your command of Turkish leave something to be desired, and you will find that our agent, Mehmet, is friendly and willing to help if required.

From the Owner
“You will find it hard to find a better view. The beauty of this property is that it is high enough to give us a wonderful sea and harbour view, but low enough to walk home from town, with no need to have one's own transport. Almost all of Kas is built on a hillside, and most other apartments with a view are just too high up to contemplate the walk home. Besides the great views, another advantage of the apartment being a little above the town is the cooler air, making it very pleasant to sit out. We often relax with a book under the trees by the house, and find this to be a good alternative to the beach. It is a short stroll to the beach, the bars, restaurants, and shops of Kas, or in just a few minutes you can be on the Lycian Way and follow the marked footpath to pretty Limonagzi for a swim and a delicious grilled fish lunch. Boats also go to and from Limanagzi at reasonable cost from Kas harbour.”
