Amazing views and cosy apartment!!!
About the Owner
We (Ross and Emma) fell in love with beautiful Kalkan and the surrounding area 7 years ago and have holidayed here every year since. We live and work in Buckinghamshire.
Whilst enjoying travelling to many other countries, Kalkan has formed a very special place in our hearts and we eventually decided to buy here.
We have 2 sons who both enjoy the climate, pools, sea platforms and tennis courts. The complex is safe and staff very friendly. There really is no other place in Kalkan with such beautiful landscaped gardens and direct sea access.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Fabulous holiday in this great apartment with amazing views over Kalkan town, harbour & bay. Patara Prince has beautiful architecture, gardens, pools, & sunbathing terraces by the sea. The only place in Kalkan with all the hotel facilities AND private sea access. Great place for kids as there are always friends to be made by the pool. Happy kids make happy parents!! Good value for money. We will be back.
Recommended for: Tourists without a car, sightseeing, families with teenagers and families with young children
Stayed here for two weeks. The apartment is lovely and clean with every appliance you could need. Two large bedrooms and a good sized bathroom. The view from the terrace is just beautiful. You can see the whole of Kalkan and watch the boats during the day, and all the activity at night - but it's far enough away that you see it but don't hear it!. Patara Prince Resort caters for every taste but it is not flat! However, a courtesy shuttle bus takes you back and forth from the pools and beach platforms at the bottom, and then back up to the top of the resort. Fabulous holiday!

Amazing views and cosy apartment!!!
My partner & I stayed at Emma & Ross's apartment for 12 nights. The apartment has everything you could need, cooker, washing machine, plenty of utensils whilst the bedrooms and very comfortable whilst being cool and dark due to the back of the property being very shaded from properties behind. The star of the show was the view from the balcony of the town and out to sea, which was simply stunning. I would be happy to recommend the property to others and to stay there again in the future!
From the Owner
“We bought Birds Nest (Kuş Yuvasi) 2 years ago. We particularly love the Club Patara resort because it offers a wide range of facilities including 3 sea water pools and sea front beach bathing platforms. It is a gated complex with security and services. The Birds' Nest has a private entrance pathway with steps leading to a stone terrace with a seating area and then on up to the veranda with those amazing views. It is private and intimate. Inside is full of character with internal stone walls and floors, old Mediterannean charm yet with modern facilities. Ideal for couples or friends holidaying together.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Kalkan is ideal for all types of water activities. The Bay has a Blue Flag Award for cleanliness and is ideal for a PADI diving course or learning to sail or water ski. Keen walkers & hikers can explore parts of the ancient Lycian Way which passes directly through the town. On Patara Beach are early morning horse riding sessions and in the summer Yoga classes are available on the sea front at Villa Mahal. Kalkan will inspire any photographer or painter with numerous photo and painting opportunities so don't forget to bring your camera and brushes. Turkish cooking classes are usually available through Guru's restaurant along with wine tasting evenings.
5 mins walk to own waterside access with pools, bar restaurants, watesports and private sunbathing terrraces.
Kalkan beach is a blue flag pebble beach, 700m away by boat taxi.
Kalkan harbour offers many possibilities to hire a boat for the day around the bay.
Kaputas beach is a beautiful sandy beach with crystal clear turquoise water and just a 5 minute drive away.
Patara Beach is just a 20 minute drive away - beautiful 17km long white, sandy beach and a protected turtle nesting beach.
Nearest airport is Dalaman a 75-90 min car journey. An alternative is Antalya a 2½ - 3 hours drive by car. We advise a private airport transfer on arrival to the villa, which we can arrange - although it is possible to travel with local transport or to hire a car at the airport and drive yourself. A car is not necessary for staying the property and you can hire a car on a daily basis once you arrive for planned day trips out. A visa must be purchased online or on arrival at the airport ($20).
The next nearest town to Kalkan is Kas, a 27km / 30 min drive away. Kas is worth visiting just for the stunning scenery on the coastal road. The nearest large town is Fethiye a 50 minute drive away with its bustling market, harbour and fish restaurants. Many historical sites are within a 45 minute drive of Kalkan including Xanthos, Tlos, and Pinara. Other places of interest are Saklikent Gorge, and the traditional villages of Bezirgan and Islamlar just a short drive up into the Taurus Mountains.
The Club Patara Resort offers a local shop which will deliver to the apartment as well as on site café, restaurants and bar. If you wish you do not need to leave the resort for the entire stay but you would be missing out on Kalkan's wide choice of restaurants. During the main season the resort offers good value buffet evenings with relaxed low key guitar music or singers. A water taxi runs to Kalkan harbour during the day and early evening (a small charge is applied). To walk into town takes approximately 20 minutes on the new Komurluk road which brings you into the Old Town quarter. This is a pleasant evening stroll along the coastline.To taxi back by road costs approx 15TL (£5.30)
Kalkan is a pretty cobbled town set into the hill leading down to the pretty harbourside. Here you can dine in some super restaurants or at one of the many sophisticated rooftop restaurants under the stars. Very romantic!
Kalkan itself has a good choice of supermarkets, grocers, patisseries and butchers along with several banks . Money can be exchanged at almost any shop and in general you get a much better exchange rate in Kalkan than the UK!
