About the property

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.

About Phyllis Lyon and Ben Hodgson

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.

Phyllis Lyon and Ben Hodgson purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Phyllis Lyon and Ben Hodgson chose Turkish Mediterranean Coast

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!

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

Paula and George (England)

Your apartment offered many delights, comfortably spacious, very satisfying view, good bed, good shower, plenty hot water, well equipped and we appreciated all the thought you have put into making such a pleasant environment. Thank-you.

a big thank you

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: We love to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay, and we are grateful when they take time to tell us. We ourselves enjoy the same things that you obviously did, the balcony and super views over the harbour, and Maya Restaurant is also a favourite with us. Thank you, and yes, we hope you will be back.

Owner's Response: Hi Nicki, thanks for your review, and happy to hear that you liked the apartment. So sorry, and surprised, however to hear you found no welcome pack of basics on your late arrival and had to go out shopping. As you'll no doubt have seen for yourselves, we do leave a note in the food cupboard requesting our guests to replace any such items on a list of basic non perishable food essentials (bottled water, long life milk, tea, coffee, fruit juice, biscuits etc) that they may have used during their stay. We have found that this has worked well in the past, and have always found something there to snack on when we ourselves have arrived late at night. We say we are surprised, because there had only been one set of visitors between own departure late this summer, and your arrival. We ourselves ensured that we left all in order on that front! However, we do thank you for pointing out this failure, and we shall ask our cleaner to include a store cupboard check in future.

What a fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Notes on accommodation: The main living space has open plan kitchen, dining and lounge with two beds /settees, plus a separate bedroom and bathroom. The property is located within a small, well-maintained residential building. The apartment has been renovated throughout to a high standard of comfort. The decoration is light and contemporary. It is best suited to a couple or family, as the sleeping facilities in the living room provide little privacy. The floors are of cool marble throughout, except for the bedroom which has a wooden floor. Although both rooms have independent air conditioning units, each has sufficient ventilation and shade from the sun that we find the a/c is rarely required. The bathroom has an external window, a shelved shower cabinet (no tub), and ample storage for toiletries. An electric water heater provides ample, safe hot water on demand. Outside: There is no private garden area, but we are on a quiet road and the area all around the building is planted with trees, shrubs and flowers, providing a nice place to sit out in the sun or shade, and enjoy the sea view below. We supply two canvas chairs/loungers for this purpose. The balcony is also perfect for sunbathing or al fresco dining. We have no pool, but some of the nearby hotels may let you use their private pools and facilities on request. Beautiful clean seas all along this part of the coast provide excellent safe swimming, open to all, and the beach directly below us has a ladder and diving platform for direct access to the sea. Utility Room: Steam iron and ironing board Cleaning / Towels / Linen Towels, including beach towels, and bed linen are supplied and changed after each occupancy; additional cleaning on request with longer occupancies. We try to maintain a welcome pack of basic food items and toiletries for late arrivals. Other: The sunny balcony gives a great view over the sea, surrounding mountains and Kas Harbour; contains a table and chairs; a sofa; a parasol; electrically operated shutters; clothes line, pegs and airer for hanging washing.
