About the Owner

I fell in love with Kalkan in 2001 on a family holiday but was unable to return until several years later by which time I was single and looking to make my mark on new territory! I met the right people to help guide me to my first Turkish property purchase in 2004.Completion of the house I call 'Home' at Club Patara was on Christmas day,what a fabulous present!Year on year the pull to Kalkan got stronger and by 2008 I had purchased penthouse Ada Manzara, and then Ottoman Garden completed my trio of properties. I was then working in Kalkan. Many years ago during my first holidays to Turkey I experienced a very strong vision of myself sitting on fuchsia-coloured cushions in a white villa-and look what happened!No fuchsia cushions but I got the white villa and orange cushions.Dream come true?

Blissfuly beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ada Manzara in late June 2014 and cannot say enough good things about this blissful apartment.

Its location is perfect. You can walk to the restaurants, bars and shops on the harbour in minutes, however we were not bothered by the noise of the town during our stay.

We adored the decor of the apartment which was has modern fittings but also a turkish feel. We had characterful wooden beams in our bedroom, floaty white curtains and traditional touches - it feels luxurious but also Turkish. We also loved the slick bathroom that felt more like a smart hotel than a holiday villa, with twin sinks and wet room styling.

The apartment has a lovely shared pool which is easy just to pop up and down to, in a secluded walled terrace with plenty of space and personal sun beds - and the town beach is a short walk away if you fancy the sea instead.

The best bit for us though, was the huge roof terrace, with breathtaking sea and town views. We breakfasted here every day and lounged for long afternoons on the sun beads and romantic evenings on the outdoor sofa, enjoying our own private view.

We loved owner Jo’s personal touch of a welcome pack and help organising transfers etc - it made it so stress free. Other touches like the colourful flowers that line the path to the apartment and pool were all appreciated very much.

Thank you, we totally fell in love with Ada Manzara. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property was a delight to stay in. It is in a great location, near enough to walk to and from the Old Town and harbour but far enough out to be peaceful. Due to its elevated position the views are amazing. To be able to roll out of bed onto the extensive roof top terrace each morning was a dream come true. And to then enjoy pre dinner drinks while the sun set was always a pleasure. The accommodation was light, airy and spacious. It was well equipped with good facilities, such as dishwasher and washing machine. The new walk in shower was also lovely.

We all had a great time and hope to return someday as we miss it already!

From the Owner

Kalkan is simply the most beautiful coastal spot on the Turkish Mediterranean, sometimes dubbed the Turkish Riviera and Kalkan is its jewel. It is definitely worth the hour or so's journey from Dalaman. As you climb the approach road your anticipation heightens and then suddenly the panorama of the sweeping bay of Kalkan comes into sight with the majestic backdrop of the Taurus mountains and Mouse and Snake islands shimmering in the distance. Simply breathtaking!There is so much to do and see in the area, sandy beaches, historic sights, beach clubs, untouched rural villages, water sports, boat trips,great shopping, local crafts on offer,an incredible array of excellent restaurants at various price levels, the choice is endless. You’ll need to return to get through the list!

Activity and Interests


Apart from its attractive decor and wonderful views one of the beauties of Ada Manzara is its unrivalled position vis-a-vis its proximity to all you need for your holiday. Within 5 minutes of leaving the apartment you could be sitting in your favourite roof top restaurant. Just wander the other way and you will reach the shops. The beach, harbour, bars,restaurants, boutiques are all on your doorstep and yet the immediate location is very peaceful.


Dalaman airport is nearest and 1 hr 40 mins from Kalkan. It is not essential to hire a car but it is possible to have one delivered to the airport if you choose. There are many Kalkan companies who will do transfers to and from the airport. Currently it will cost £60 each way for 1-3 persons. Antalya airport is 2 1/2 hrs away. Please enquire if you require help in making these arrangements.

Further Details:

The well-loved town beach is 5 minutes walk through the Old Town and the same distance to the beautiful harbour full of gulets and fishing boats, with all its array of attractive restaurants and cafes.Town beach is pebbly but shallow enough for children to play in but deeper for adults as you swim out further.One of the town's beach clubs is within walking distance as is the shuttle boat point for departure to the many beach clubs dotted around the bay.Sandy Patara Beach is a 20 mins drive away

From the Owner

Penthouse Ada Manzara is very special principally because of its excellent location, convenient yet quiet, just outside the conservation area of Kalkan Old Town. It can sleep 7 but is often enjoyed by just one or two couples. The main attraction is the furnished roof terrace with its unbelievable views. Sunbathe here, relax, BBQ,enjoy drinks at sunset. Its trademark orange cushions are well known! The shared pool is very popular for swimming lengths and the pool terrace is normally very quiet. The duplex arrangement offers further balconies on the ground floor from kitchen and bedroom 3. There are shower rooms on both floors. This an excellent in-town spot with ample accommodation, views and superbly convenient for everything you will need for your holiday.
