Charming, unique 1-bedroom apartment: Magnificent Pool, Superb Location!



Updated: 15-May-2016
1-bed Apartment, Kalkan, Turkey - Superb Location, great value close to town centre

Situated in the grounds of the Nur Apartments, but set slightly apart from the main block in its own secluded area, this is a charming self-contained garden studio apartment with twin beds, separate wc/bath/shower room and a small but well-equipped kitchenette (ideal for preparing breakfast, tea/coffee or snacks). There is also a fridge, iron and ironing board, drying rack plus a small hair dryer. Air-conditioned and well-equipped, this cute, cosy and welcoming unit is perfect for a couple wanting to get away from it all at relatively low cost. You can sit and read or sunbathe on the secluded garden terrace, or join the other apartment guests by the pool - it's entirely up to you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Martyn and Fiona (the owners) were so friendly and helpful when booking the studio flat. They gave excellent advice on what to see and do and where to eat in Kalkan. They also arranged our transfers from the airport that were a good price and very reliable. We can't thank them enough.

Initially we were concerned that being a studio it may be a little small but it really wasn't. It was compact but had everything we needed. It is fantastic for those not wanting to spend huge amounts on a holiday for space that you don't necessarily require! Every last thing had been thought of (iron + board, hangers, hair dryer, candles, sun loungers, seating etc). The beds were so comfortable and the air conditioning in the bedroom was fantastic. Because it was the studio flat it was a little separate from the other 5 flats in the main building. This meant that we felt very private and we got a lovely view to the sea. The private outside area for the flat was bigger than expected and we spent most of our time here when at the flat having breakfast and drinks. We found that not having a full kitchen didn't matter as we only used the kettle and the fridge anyway. The rest of the time we ate out at the many wonderful restaurants in Kalkan. The studio even had a semi private entrance so that you didn't have to walk past the pool every time you went out.

The pool was a nice size and although you are allocated 2 sunbeds (distinguished by the colour of the cushions on the sunbed) if felt almost like a private pool because the other flats' occupants didn't all stay at the pool every day. We were able to move sunbeds to choose how much shade we wanted at different times of the day.

The location of the flat was perfect. It wasn't right in the centre of the town but it wasn't too far up the hill. Approx 7 min walk to the town center. A little walk to burn off some of the many calories you consume during dinner! The supermarket next door is perfect for all bits and pieces you may need and there is a small kebab place just a little down the hill (before the Corner restaurant) that does the most amazing kebabs if you want something for lunch or even for dinner.

I recommend this studio very much for those not wanting to have an expensive luxury holiday. Thank you again to the owners. We can't wait to return!

This was my second time at the apartment and can't praise it enough. I'm a lone traveller and it is perfect for me or would also be for a couple. Great location and fantastic pool and the owners Martyn and Fiona are so welcoming and make the stay that extra bit special.

I'm coming back this September it's so good can't recommend it enough

From the Owner

We first came to Kalkan on honeymoon in 2004 and stayed at the Samira Hotel. We just fell in love with the town and, above all, its people. So much so, that we booked to return the following year - but this time decided we had to take the plunge and buy our own little piece of this paradise! But, we knew we would have to rent it out, in order to cover our costs. So then came the difficult decisions: Villa or apartment? In the town, or up the hill? What about Kalamar and Kisla? In the end, the choice was relatively easy. Arif, our agent, showed us the apartments that Baris was selling off from the Hotel Nur and, once we saw Apartment 303 (we now call it 'Sunrise') we knew that had to be the one! Great location; fantastic pool; easy to manage; 24/7 security.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

Food: Kalkan is a gourmet paradise! Varied and high quality menus for all tastes, always made with fresh local produce. The only problem is choosing which of the amazing restaurants to try; we have been holidaying here for several years and still haven't sampled all of them! Historical interest: Xanthos, Patara, Kekova, Saklikent, Pamukkale, the list goes on. Various civilisations have left their mark on this area over the centuries - Greek, Roman, Lycian, Ottoman. Walking: trekking the Lycian Way is a very popular activity for the more active holidaymaker, there are numerous sites of great historical importance and general interest along the coastline. We will be pleased to put you in touch with some of the organisers of these walks. Diving and watersports: PADI diving club/school in Kalkan bay and various beach clubs, catering for a variety of watersports including waterskiing and jetskiing. Or, of course, just chill out with a cool drink and sunbathe!


Kalkan's small shingle and pebble beach is only 10 mins walk from the apartment and there are several beach clubs with bathing platforms and excellent water sports facilities in and around Kalkan. The spectacular 7 mile long beach at Patara is accessible by road or boat and is only 15 mins away by bus (dolmus - leaving from the bus station which is a 5 minute walk from the apartment!), while the secluded sandy beach at Kaputas is only 10 mins by road - fantastic scenery on the way too!


Dalaman airport, now open all year, is about 90 mins away by private taxi transfer - currently around £55 each way for 2 people. Car hire is readily available (but not really needed for guests at this apartment as you can walk into Kalkan in 5 mins). If you want to go further afield, the dolmus is always a good bet, but if you want a taxi or really do want to hire a car while you're here, there is a hire car company one minute away!


Supermarket, banks, restaurants, 1-2 mins walk. Pharmacy and doctor, boutiques, etc 5 mins walk. Kas 25 mins by road (spectacular scenery on route). Fethiye/Olu Deniz 45 mins by road. Kalkan is on the Lycian Coast with many fascinating places of historical interest nearby, including Saklikent Gorge, the sunken city of Keklova, the Lycian Tombs and the ruins at Xanthos, all within easy reach by road.

Further Details:

Kalkan is a friendly, relaxing place for the discerning visitor with an amazing number of superb restaurants crammed into its maze of cobbled streets, many with rooftop terraces and views over the beautiful harbour. If kiss-me-quick hats and brawling lager louts are your thing, this is not the place for you; it's warm, friendly and vibrant in the evenings - but never brash.

From the Owner

We started with Sunrise in 2005, adding Sunset & Moonlight in 2009, Daybreak- the 2-bedroom penthouse of the block - in 2011 and now Dusk, a 2-bed apartment on the ground floor, in 2012. From day one, our guests seemed to love the Nur Apartments as much as we did - many of them becoming regulars! The main selling point of our apartments has to be the magnificent pool. At 10m x 9m it's simply huge and, because of our cleaning and maintenance arrangements, it's kept spotlessly clean on a daily basis. The next advantage is the location. It's just so convenient: close to the town, without being noisy; right next to the major banks, the supermarket, the Thursday market and several restaurants and bars close by. And the main "old" town is a genuine five minutes walk away: taxis not required!
