Apartment in Calis Beach, Fethiye-Olu Deniz, Aegean Region, Turkey - Lovely 2 Bedroom Ground Floor Apartment, Shared Pool On A Quiet Complex, 5 Mins By Bus To The Beach
This is our lovely 2 bedroom ground floor apartment with terrace and shared pool on a small quiet complex of just 7 apartments in a residential area just on the outskirts of Calis beach. This is a great location situated between Fethiye town and Calis beach providing the best of both worlds and within walking distance of a few minutes to the supermarkets, Calis Sunday market and other shops. Our 2 bedroom apartment is fully air conditioned and tastefully furnished and has undergone a makeover with a new dual shower system, bathroom down lighters, new beds, breakfast bar, new light fittings and other new furnishings. The master bedroom has a new double memory foam bed and pillows and the second bedroom has new twin beds with memory foam pillows and under bed storage. The living room is comfortable and cosy and has a 32” LCD flat screen TV with Freesat and over 600 films/TV programmes available on the hard drive for those takeaway nights (known as ‘packet’ in Turkey). There is a lovely terrace overlooking the pool lending itself for great alfresco dining and which is lit up at night. The apartment is also situated very close to the main Calis beach resort, which is easily reached by bus within 10 minutes or Fethiye town within 10 minutes by bus. Alternatively you can use the two push bikes that we have available (his and hers) at the apartment to cycle to either Calis or Fethiye along the new developed coastal beach cycle track that links Fethiye to Calis offering beautiful views of the sea. Just a minute’s walk to the end of the lane finds you on the main bus routes to Calis beach, Fethiye town, Hisaruno and Oludeniz. These buses (Dolmus) run every couple of minutes from early morning until late at night and are very reasonably priced and will stop anywhere to pick you up. They will often toot their horn if they see you walking to see if you want a ride! As well as the Dolmus there is the water taxi service, which is a wonderful way to travel across the bay to and from Fethiye.

About the Owner
About Virginia Cook
Hi, we're Steve and Virginia. We purchased our apartment in Calis (Oct 2014) and have spent quite a bit of time refurbishing it to a high standard. We married in Fethiye, in October 2015 so know the area quite well now. We are looking to rent it for a number of years with the intention of retiring there. We are both professionals working in Wiltshire. We have friends in Fethiye who we have known for over ten years and who have been a real blessing in helping with our purchase and assisting us in finding our feet, their local knowledge has been invaluable.
Thank you for looking at our apartment and if we can assist you with any further details, please don't hesitate to contact us, we'll be very pleased to hear from you.

What makes this apartment unique
Our apartment is between Fethiye and Calis which brings the best of both worlds. You have in one direction the vibrancy of Calis with its nightlife and restaurants and yet in the other there is Fethiye with its history, markets and marina bringing the old tradition to your door. The apartment is just a minute or so from the main thoroughfare between the two areas where you can catch a bus easily or cycle down the new coastal promenade. It is also a few minutes walk to the old Fethiye market which is held on Sundays and the local brand shops of Kipa and A101. The local beach is just the other side of the main road and there is an aqua park for the children a few minutes bus ride away heading into Calis. All in all it is perfectly located for the best of beaching, shopping and socialising!

A Modern and comfortable apartment
A lovely compact apartment on a small development. Well furnished with modern and comfortable sofas and good quality beds and mattresses. Well equipped with everything you need for a self catering break. Ideally situated with a hotel bar and restaurants and a supermarket within ten minutes walk. And a ten minute cycle ride to the edge of Fethiye or centre of Callis. The english owners and managers were extremely helpful and went out of their way to ensure we had superb holiday. We loved the two weeks we spent there and will be back.
This is a lovely apartment everything in it is perfect, it was lovely and clean and everything was in working order, and yr friends mandy and Glenn were superb, I would highly recommend this apartment, to all of my friends, it's in a lovely part of town, you can walk to either challis or Fethiye it's right in the middle, would definitely go back here.
We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at this lovely apartment.
This is the best by far, of any apartments that we have stayed in over the last ten years booking with Owners Direct. The property is perfect, it is beautifully decorated and it is really like home from home. There has been so much thought and organization gone into this property. It has everything washing machine ( with English translation on the dials!) dishwasher, oven, hob, microwave,huge fridgefreezer, even a shopping trolley provided for shopping at the nearby Kipa(Tesco). There is air con in the lounge and both bedrooms, first week not needed but second week greatly appreciated. The pool although small ,is lovely and you have it to yourselves most days.The second week the temperatures were in the forties so what better way to relax then to have a meal overlooking the pool and then watch one of of the hundreds of films and programmes provided.The dolmus stops at the nearby main road and takes you into Callis Beach or Fethyie for 2 Turkish Lira (50 pence when we were there). The property is in a residential area so it is quiet. Fethyie and Callis with their bars restaurants are close by. Callis Sunday market is within walking distance. Glenn picked up at the airport and nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend this apartment, however If you want music and bars on your doorstep then maybe not for you.
Fantastic 2 weeks
Been coming to Calis for the last 6 years and love it. We stayed for 2 weeks in September was quiet which is what we wanted. The neigbours were really friendly got on really well with them very helpful. Everything is really near supermarket, market, restaurants and bars. It was really nice to be able to sit back and just relax and unwind. Easy walking distance to Fethiye or Calis. Dolmus just at the end of the road. Would definately highly recommend it to anyone.

Wonderful family holiday!
We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at this lovely apartment.
The property is perfect, dishwasher, washing machine ( this means you can travel light!! we did it with one suitcase!) and everything you can think of inside. It means you can stay here self catering and really cook, big huge fridge freezer ( handy for all the beer) and excellent cooking/cleaning items. The Lounge is easily big enough for 4 with the 1st bedroom just off the lounge (which is great if you have small kids) All the doors are very secure and with aircon in each room you can easily keep the place at a nice temperature. We stayed with our 2 kids( 2 and 4) and due to the layout you can chill in the shade whilst watching them play in the pool. The pool is brilliant. clean and very quiet - it was like having our own pool! if they get tired of sunshine then there is a flat screen TV and hundreds of movies for them to watch!
The surrounding area is pretty quiet, the only obstacle we found is navigating the main road with a double buggy! but once we mastered the local transport system we didn't use it anymore. If you're looking for a hectic nightlife soaked area bang on your doorstep with music pumping then this isn't for you, if you want a nice relaxed chilled holiday, with bars and nightlife within walking distance (under 20mins) or a 5 min dolmus ride away then this is exactly what you are after. I am recommending this property to my fiends and colleagues!

You can dine whilst listening to the waves lapping the shore and watch the beautiful sunsets. You’re sure to enjoy the night life in Calis, whether you’re enjoying cocktails by the beach, dancing the night away in one of the small clubs, enjoying live entertainment in one of the many bars or taking an evening stroll along the promenade and taking in the night air.
There is a large Aqua park just a few minutes bus ride away from the apartment and the main Turkish delight factory shop is just opposite the Aqua Park and they encourage you to sample!
