About Jon Burton

Thank you for viewing my property, Im Jon a business transformation consultant from Manchester with a passion for Turkey.

When searching for the ideal holiday escape it was essential the property offered stunning sea views, lush gardens, peace and tranquility, yet offering all amenities expected for the perfect holiday. Buying in Patara Prince made was the best decision made as not only does it offer all the above it packages it up into a truly memorable holiday experience.

After the fantastic feedback from guests about The Olive Garden I decided to purchase The Cactus Garden in 2016 and fully gutted it to refurbish it to the modern standards expected. Not only does this make a fantastic additional property it also allows those wishing to travel as a larger party of 6 stay in two fantastic properties located in the same resort offering both convenience and privacy.

Jon Burton purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jon Burton chose Kalkan

After returning from a holiday we saw The Olive Garden was available for sale and as soon as we saw the views from the terrace we knew we had to buy it!

We had never visited Kalkan previously but fell in love with the town, its restaurants and its people. We decided to purchase in Patara Prince as the property offered everything we required; uninterrupted sea views, onsite bars and restaurants, its own water and electricity supply, 24 hour security and direct sea access from the bathing platforms... not to mention the four swimming pools!

We also appreciated the peace and tranquillity of the resort and the beautiful gardens and architecture, better still Kalkan centre is only a short taxi ride or a 20 minute walk away.

After the lovely feedback we received about The Olive Garden we decided to purchase another property, The Cactus Garden, a one bedroom ground floor apartment at the top of the resort allowing friends and family to visit whilst offering private accommodation. Fully refurbished for the 2016 season we hope you also enjoy the property.

What makes this apartment unique

The Olive Garden Villa is situated in an excellent position within the resort, with uninterrupted sea and Kalkan views combined with the convenience of being close to all the main resort facilities.

The Agora restaurant and bar is only a 2 minute walk away and the Grand and Adult pools only a 5 minute walk away.

The Olive Garden is also situated close to the main hotel building allowing easy access to the resort Shuttle Bus and Spa Facilities.

The Cactus Garden is located at the top of the resort by the infinity pool and mini market. For those wishing to avoid steps the garden level apartment is only a couple of steps from the Palm shuttle bus roundabout offering regular journeys to the sea front and grand pools.

For your convenience we also have a private fast Wi-Fi internet connection in both properties.

Comfortable apartment from which to explore Kalkan

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very modern and spacious and very quiet which we really appreciated. Great welcome pack on arrival. Tamer was very helpful and a good link in the area. The terrace was very spacious although had no clear view of the sea. There were no sun-beds as advertised in the garden area which was overgrown and unkempt. Having booked the apartment in order to access the Patara Prince facilities we were disappointed that the upper pool was closed and the lower pool was not fit for swimming in as it was not being cleaned and was full of algae. However, the apartment was lovely and good value for money.

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thank for you choosing to stay at The Cactus Garden, Im pleased Tamer and the welcome back were helpful to you throughout your stay. I am a little confused about the sunbeds as these are not something I have ever advertised or had at the property. Regarding the top pool, this is only open in high season, June to September and I have passed on your comments regarding the condition of the other pool and communal gardens to Patara Prince who maintain the whole resort. I hope to welcome you back again soon.

My daughter and I stayed at cactus 214 for ten days in September. We were met by tamar who showed us the apartment and provided his number if we needed anything during our stay. We immediately settled in and went up to the infinity pool to relax after our journey,which we had to ourselves. The next ten days we spent relaxing by one of the pools or the bathing platforms/eating at the poolside bar for lunch (25%discount). We walked into kalkan every night for a meal at one of the many wonderful restaurants/ cocktails.

The apartment was well equipped with everything you need, and really lovely furnishings. The air con was a godsend as it was still over 30 degrees. The apartment had wifi which was also very useful as it was hit and miss by the pool.

Jon the owner was also very informative and responded to any queries I had quickly. I could go on and on about the joys of kalkan but really you have to go and experience it yourself. I first went in 1995 and fell in love with it. It's like a magnet!! I was ready to come home but now I am I want to go back.

Perfect for my trip alone

  • 5 of 5

This was my first solo holiday and was concerned about my safety but I didn't need to worry as the complex has 24hr security and I felt very safe. The apartment is very modern inside and has free Wifi, a TV with a few English channels (mainly news and wildlife programmes) and modern kitchen appliances. The air conditioning in the lounge area and the bedroom were very welcoming as it was extremely hot. The bedroom is a good size with a large wardrobe and has a safe inside. On a personal note I found the bed a little on the firm side and would have preferred a lightweight duvet instead of a blanket but that is a personal choice. The apartment has some wonderful aesthetic lighting and is set in a nice quiet location within a small garden area. The courtesy bus that runs through the resort is a real asset and although it was my intention to walk down to the pool areas and sea, the hot weather proved too much, so I found myself relying on the bus. The owner of the property was very helpful and replied to my emails within minutes. I would definitely recommend the property and would be happy to return.

Our holiday in Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression on the apartment was how clean, light, modern and comfortable looking. We would definitely stay here again, the personal touches like the main essentials of food upon our arrival was very much appreciated (tea, coffee, bread, butter, cheese, olives and milk). The facilities on site were very good so I would thoroughly recommend.

Well presented property in beautiful resort

  • 5 of 5

First visit to Kalkan. Loved the resort and the property was well presented, well equiped and in a lovely resort. Patara Prince is a great location, easily accessible to Kalkan and in a great location, with swimming pools and platforms for easy access to the sea. Can't wait to return. The property was superb, nicely presented, well maintained and well equipped. Can't wait to return and would definatley book the same property again.

Car: not necessary


Patara Prince has it's own private access to the sea but does not have a beach. Instead there are steps into the sea from the platforms. The resort has been awarded a blue flag. Kalkan town does have a beach which is a 15 minute walk away or can be reached by the boat that leaves the resort. Further out there is the beautiful Kaputus beach (10 mins by car) or the stunning 18km long Patara beach (20 mins by car).


Kalkan is easily accessible thanks to its two major airports. Dalaman Airport is the closest airport to Kalkan with a transfer time of about 1.5 hours. Antalya Airport is a 3 hour transfer.

We are happy to arrange airport transfers and rental cars for you at time of booking.


Kalkan is a couple of minutes drive away by taxi or car. Taxi's can be booked at the hotel and they will pick you up from reception. A water taxi is also available from Patara Prince in high season to take you to the harbour for a small fee but stops running at 8pm. If you wish to walk into Kalkan this will take approx 20 minutes.

Further Details:


There is a small mini market at the top of the resort that can be used for your basic provisions. However on your arrival a welcome pack will be provided with the basic essentials. Kalkan town has a selection of larger supermarkets and a number of pretty shops and boutiques dotted down the pretty cobbled streets selling pottery, jewellery, clothes and a must for the ladies...handbags ! There are also traditional shops selling carpets and other Turkish goods.

Every Thursday there is a local market selling fruit, veg, spices clothes and gifts. It is a unique and enjoyable experience not to missed. Cheaper than Asda!

Bars and restaurants

There are two restaurants that are open in the Patara Prince resort in high season (one in low season) but for more choice a visit to Kalkan town is a must. There a number of bars in Kalkan ranging from chilled out relaxing bars to enjoy a cocktail, or more livelier bars to dance the night away. There is also a huge choice of restaurants, over 100! These consist of roof top restaurants with views to the sea and mountains,quaint back street restaurants or the stunning harbour side restaurants. The standard of food is very high but there is a number of different cuisines to suit every taste and budget !If you like good food Kalkan is an ideal choice.

Tours and sites

Kalkan is the ideal location to visit the sites . There are a number of historical sites nearby such as Letoon and Patara and boat trips can be arranged from the harbour on the fabulous gullet boats. There are a number of tour operators in the town and Kalkan also has a regular Dolmus (bus) service to sites and beaches.
