About the property

Apartment in Kalkan,Komurluk, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - Peaceful Location With Shops, Beach Clubs,bars,Restaurants only 10 minutes away.

Apartment Caretta, is situated in the peaceful area of Komurluk. Only 10-15 minute easy walk to and from Kalkan town, yet far enough away to remain exclusive and unique. Caretta provides a peaceful and relaxing environment to have a truly memorable holiday with fantastic sea and harbour views from every balcony and every room.

A luxurious contemporary apartment with spacious open plan living areas. Tastefully decorated to an exceptionally high standard. All laid out on one level the apartment flows perfectly.Both spacious bedrooms lead directly to good sized balconies with spectacular uninterrupted sea views. The Master bedroom has a super king size bed and the second bedroom has a king size bed. Both have en suite bathrooms with marble mosaic walls and white modern tiles. There is a third bathroom at the rear of the apartment,with a shower,Wc and wash basin.

The apartment has a beautifully designed modern kitchen with marble tiles and good spacious worktop. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven,hob dishwasher, microwave oven, integral fridge,a freezer, toaster, kettle and toasted sandwich maker . There is a utility/laundry room with washing machine, iron and ironing board. There are digital safety deposit boxes for security of personal belongings, a flat screen LCD Television,built in DVD player (with DVDs) and iPod docking station with CD Player. Both bedrooms have large built-in wardrobes with plenty of space to hang clothes and fitted drawers. Remote controlled air conditioning units/heaters are available in each room and mosquito nets are fitted.The apartment is fitted with a smoke detector, fire blanket and fire extinguisher for safety.

All rooms lead to South-West facing spacious balconies, perfect for viewing the amazing Kalkan sunsets. Relax on our balconies, enjoying a nice cold drink watching the traditional gulets and smart yachts glide in and out of the pretty harbour. Spacious outdoor living at its best, where you can enjoy al- fresco dining, sit and read, sunbathe or just relax whilst looking out to sea.

Komurluk is known locally as one of the best areas in Kalkan due to it's amazing views and close proximity to the sea. Komurluk Apartments are all privately owned, individually designed and set into the hillside with a shared pool area overlooking the stunning bay.

Palm beach club is a few minutes walk away. Situated just below, nestled in between the rocks. It has a bar, restaurant,very comfortable sun loungers with cushions.There are bathing platforms, parasols, steps into the sea and water sports available.A free water taxi service to and from Kalkan is included when you use their facilities for the day.

Kalkan is still Turkey's best kept secret with it's magical atmosphere and remains unspoilt by mass tourism. Kalkan is on the South-West coast of Turkey, known as the Turquoise Coast. It is charming, sophisticated and traditional, with a quaint harbour and cobbled streets. This once small fishing village is a true hidden gem nestling in the hillside.

By day you can explore the old town with it's many shops, enjoy a Turkish bath or massage, take a boat trip from the harbour or have lunch in one of the many restaurants.There is a small white pebble beach with clear sea, as well as a number of stylish beach clubs which are accessed by a water taxi service.

If you prefer to escape the heat of the day, a taxi ride to the cooler mountain village of Islamlar is recommended to explore or have lunch at one of the freshwater trout farms. The spectacular Kaputas Beach with it's crystal clear blue sea, white sand and shingle beach is a 10 minute dolmus (local bus) ride away. The awesome 18km stretch of sandy beach known as Patara is also only a short bus ride away. Patara is a conservation beach, home to the endangered loggerhead turtles. Definitely both well worth a visit.

The harbour has an array of boats all offering daily excursions to local islands, or further a field like Kekova (sunken city). You can also watch local fisherman prepare their nets and set up their boats for a day or night of fishing.

At night Kalkan comes to life with candle-lit roof terrace restaurants serving magnificent food, with their wonderful views across Kalkan bay. Shops open till late and bars with live Jazz/Turkish music. Most hotels host traditional Turkish nights (open to non-residents) with belly dancing shows and buffet or barbecued food. Sounds of laughter, warm friendly locals, crystal clear sea, twinkling stars in the sky and the awesome Kalkan sunsets will last in your memory forever. This really is 'Paradise'.

About Simon Laister

We are very well travelled around the world,and this includes numerous visits to many areas of Turkey and in particular,Kalkan.

We love Kalkan and our fabulous apartment,and we want everyone who stays with us to enjoy their holiday as much as we do.

We go to great lengths to make the apartment a real "home from home" and strive to improve the apartment each year.

Thank you and look forward to welcoming you in the near future.

Simon and Sue

Simon Laister purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Simon Laister chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

We have visited Turkey for many decades now and have travelled widely around the country.

We first came to Kalkan around 12 years ago for a one week holiday in a local hotel and were hooked immediately.

We loved Kalkan.The weather is glorious,the views of Kalkan bay and the Taurus mountains are unbeatable,the people are so friendly and genuine,and Kalkan is renowned for its incredible choice of high standard restaurants.

We loved Kalkan's unique charm and really wanted to have our own holiday home there.

We came across Caretta,in Komurluk area and had to buy it.The views were panoramic and stunning and we loved everything about the apartment.The Komurluk area is known as the most prestigious in Kalkan.

We hope you love the apartment as much as we do.

What makes this apartment unique

The benefits of staying at Caretta are many and varied.It is a real "home from home",and so stylish and comfortable to return to,after a day out sunbathing.

The views from all rooms and balconies are incredible.We have the best views in Kalkan,looking towards Mouse and Snake islands,the lovely harbour,Kalkan beach and town.Relax and watch the local fishing boats and Gulets come and go.

We have a fully equipped kitchen with all integral appliances and every gadget you can think of to create a culinary masterpiece.

We have two big balconies,so there is plenty of space to enjoy sunbathing,al fresco dining,or just chill out,take in the view and watch the world go by.

Komurluk has the best views,the longest sunsets,is a very peaceful area,and only 10-15 minutes easy walk into Kalkan

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely apartment with fantastic views. All mod cons including a dishwasher and new kitchen and new en suite bathrooms which are stand out features of this fantastic apartment. Only a 10/15 mins walk to and from town in a quiet area of Kalkan this apartment certainly fits the bill for a relaxing break.The shared pool area was never busy,and the service and information provided by Simon is second to none. As travellers who have experienced 5 * hotels, fantastic villas and apartments this apartment certainly fulfilled expectations

We have been to Turkey many times - but this was our best holiday yet. Kalkan really is a hidden gem - a beautiful resort that ascends from the harbour - it has a very artisan and slightly bohemian feel.

The apartment is great,clean,well appointed and Simon and Sue have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. The views from all the rooms are fabulous and have to be seen to be believed! I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

just returned from a fantastic holiday in caretta apartment kalkan 17th sep - 1st oct 2016. the weather was perfect ,sunny every day.

4 Silver Surfers but young at heart, we found the apartment had every thing you could think of to make our stay memorable,a real home from home,

and the VIEW _ WOW !

Theres a nice pool area with plenty of beds and parasols, the apartment location was 15 min walk (for us ) to top of town and nearest supermarket, taxi back each night cost 9TL, if you have never been to kalkan you will find it so friendly and welcoming,and the restaurants were all excelent, you can eat your fillet steak with a spoon !

the support we had from SIMON & SUE when booking was Unsurpassed, they helped with every thing, including booking our Airport Transfer and the welcome pack when we got to the apartment was greatly appreciated

we wouldnt hesitate to go back to Caretta apartment

Wonderful Kalkan and Caretta

  • 5 of 5

What you see from the photographs, descriptions and all other information provided on the website is all so accurate. We had a very long journey due to airline delays and we kept Simon and Sue informed throughout and they ensured our arrival in Dalaman and transfers (Enes Tours) still went smoothly although several hours late.

The property was immaculate when we arrived but saved the views until morning due to being the middle of the night and all over tired.

Beds all amazingly comfortable and welcome pack a nice touch for a welcome cuppa.

The views indeed were beautiful along with sunsets to savour on the balcony most evenings.

Pool area never too busy and sun beds readily available. Whole complex spotlessly clean and linen and towels in Caretta changed regularly due to the amazing cleaning lady who seems to never stop.

The apartment was so well equipped Simon and Sue really have thought of everything. Water cooler fab and easy to get refills, as Manager of complex sorted, he kept in touch as well to make sure everything ok throughout our time at Caretta.

A boat trip with Abi Tours was great to Kekova and the Sunken City a beautiful day out and again first class service picked up from apartment.

We loved Palm Beach Club 5 mins walk away, but a steep climb back all added to the holiday as Kalkan is not flat!

Aristo Watersports were good across the bay came and collected you in a speed boat to go and start your chosen activity from whichever beach club you were at.

Restaurants frequented by us during our time:-

Adams Place is great just out of town on the Kas Road, reserve a table and he will pick you up and drop you home after your meal. Wonderful views again and sunsets. Sunset Restaurant amazing homemade lemonade before you even start your meal, Baharat, Alternatif, Olive Garden, Moonlight Terrace, Authentic, Gourmet Terrace and Gironda to name but a few, service and food all first class.

A wonderful holiday, thank you Simon and Sue we loved it all and will return.

Jane, Dave and family

Excellent 5 star

  • 4 of 5

The property was brilliant. The bedrooms were very comfortable with blackout curtains to let you sleep in! The apartment has everything you could need including beach towels and a cleaner who comes in daily and the views are even better than the pictures.

The owner was very helpful with information before we left and during our stay the manager occasionally checked in with us to make sure everything was ok.

There are a lot of stairs in both Kalkan and to get to the apartment, however we had 2 small children aged 3 and 5 and they managed fine.

We loved Kalkan. The people are so friendly and welcoming. We went on the boat cruises twice as they were so good and there are many lycian and roman apitheatres and tombs within an hours drive that are amazing.

Fabulous holiday staying in Caretta

  • 5 of 5

Four of us had an amazing holiday in Kalkan staying in Sue and Simon's apartment Caretta. From the moment I enquired about the apartment I knew I was in safe hands as Simon's attention to detail regarding providing us with so much information and arranging transfers was second to none. Sue and Simon obviously take a lot of pride in providing not only great customer service but a fantastic apartment which was probably the best equipped that we have stayed in. We are no strangers to Kalkan so knew the area but we are always blown away by that view. The sunsets are amazing, but I have to say my favourite time of the day to sit out on the balcony was in the morning eating breakfast and watching the boats go out.

After a day out we would usually spend an hour or so round the pool. It became a social time meeting up with the other guests over a drink or two! We always walked into the Old Town, but with taxis only about £2.50 we usually jumped into one after an evening out.

We love everything about Kalkan....the restaurants, beach clubs. boat trips and the wonderful friendly Turkish people ,in fact we are very lucky to be going back mid September, unfortunately Caretta apartment isn't free for our dates otherwise I would have had no hesitation in booking it again.

All I would say to anyone concerned about the current situation in Turkey is that we were in Kalkan at the time of the attempted coup and if it hadn't have been for family and friends back home contacting us we wouldn't have had a clue it was going on. The fact that we have booked again to go back speaks for it self. Kalkan is a special place and so is Caretta. Thanks Sue and Simon

Kalkan is stunning

  • 5 of 5

Breathtakingly Beautiful

This was my first visit to Kalkan and Caretta. What can I say..... A truly beautiful area of Turkey.

The photos sold the holiday for me, however they do not do Kalkan justice. The views are amazing, whether you are sat on the balcony at the apartment or in any of the numerous rooftop restaurants in town. Palm Beach Club is a five minute walk away, with great service and a handy boat taxi to take you in to the harbour. The town is so pretty with lovely cobbled streets, lots of shops and fabulous restaurants. Seaport being one of our favourites.

The apartment is very well equipped, with anything you would need to make your stay comfortable. It is very modern and clean with views that you won't get tired of.

Simon and Sue couldn't be more helpful and their attention to detail is a god send.

We will be returning as soon as possible.
