About the property

Luxury apartment in Kalkan, Turkey - Quiet Location, private pool ,10 Minutes To Town Center, below the D400

Apartment Gemina is set in a beautiful location in a prestigious new development within the sought after area of Ortaalan, in Kalkan, which is below the D400.

This modern and well appointed property became available for its first guests in 2015 and offers a comfortable and spacious open plan lounge, dining area and high specification kitchen together with three large bedrooms - two doubles (one en suite) and one twin. The property has been built to a very high standard, and its design offers a more tranquil and private setting than you might expect from an apartment. The large outside space provides ample room to relax by the poolside, enjoy al fresco dining and also the opportunity to try out your cooking skills on the custom built BBQ whilst enjoying the panoramic views. There are x6 sun loungers, x4 parasols and x4 beanbags to ensure that there is ample opportunity for everyone to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Follow us @KalkanGemina

Should you wish to dine out, the centre of Kalkan is a pleasant 10 minute walk away and the harbour is a further short walk through the winding streets of the beautiful old town. Both the old town and harbour area offer a wide variety of restaurants to suite all tastes and according to the Sunday Times “Kalkan attracts the kind of visitors who would also enjoy Tuscany or the Dordogne.” It has also been likened to the Italian Riviera without the poseurs!

It is also a good location to ensure that you experience the weekly market, with all that it has to offer.

There are plenty of day trips to local sights from Kalkan including daily boat excursions around the coast and the opportunity to visit the local mountain villages. The area is steeped in history with easy access to the Lycian Way (walking route). Patara Beach (17kms of sandy beach) is a short drive away and also has some Roman ruins which you can visit. Not far from Patara is the Roman ruins of Xanthos, and most people enjoy a visit to the nearby Saklikent Gorge which is the 3rd largest in Europe.You can walk the gorge as far as the waterfall, or for the less adventurous, why not just sit and watch the world go by with a cool beer dangling your feet in the water from the restaurants that overhang the waters edge.

Kalkan bay also offers a variety of beach clubs which can be easily accessed via free water taxis, and provide high quality facilities (including water sports and restaurants) and the opportunity to swim in the clear blue waters. If you are lucky you may even spot one of the local turtles.

About samantha eveson

I live in South East England with my husband and teenage children. We have travelled widely, and been to other parts of Turkey, but fell in love with Kalkan when we stayed there for the first time in 2014. The old town is so pretty and authentic yet offers high quality restaurants and boutiques without being pretentious. Kalkan is the perfect location, away from the crowds, for a relaxing holiday and a good base to explore the Turquoise coast and surrounding mountains.

We will be visiting the apartment in the spring to add some finishes touches, and again in the summer. We hope you really enjoy your stay with us and come back again

A perfect vacation - in a superb apartment, in a magical place!

  • 5 of 5

Do not be in any doubt when booking a trip to Kalkan that you are booking the best holiday you can get. Not only is every restaurant, bar, beach club fabulous but this apartment is superb and in the best possible location.... close enough but far enough away from the hub of the old and new town. It would be so easy never to leave the beautiful apartment..... but there is so much to see and do that it would be a crime not to drag yourself out. Not only are the Turkish people so friendly and welcoming (without exception) but Samantha went above and beyond with recommendations of where to visit and where to take a teenager! I feel like i have made a firm friend having discussed all the wonderful things about Kalkan with her. I am so glad they have chosen to rent out their spectacular property..... which is truly as it appears in the pictures - it was a privilege to stay there. It was also managed well and we had fresh bread delivered every morning by the pool man! I can't wait to return-and would be more than happy to visit and stay in the apartment on my own (as i did to Kalkan many years ago). It feels safe and the neighbours are lovely too.... you would never feel lonely. So easy to pick up supplies from the local supermarkets and to catch taxis home up the very steep hill (helped keep holiday weight gain to a minimum though if we walked it!!!) we took trips to saklikent, patara and Xanthos whilst we were there-fabulous. The beach clubs were excellent value for money too -and we saw turtles swimming in the ocean from the Mahal club..... magical! I took a boat day trip on my own one day - it was so relaxing and such great value at £25 a head. If i could go back tomorrow i would..... Thank you Samantha and Jon for enabling us to experience the magic of Kalkan and for making the booking process/visit so easy. Sarah B

Amazing modern apartment in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment and everything it had to offer. It had all of the amenities we needed and the attention to detail is exceptional. A great location and a nice 10 to 15 minute stroll to the harbour means that all of the best restaurants are within easy reach. The hosts were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

Fantastic property, fantastic location, fantastic holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many villas and none have been as modern and well equipped as this apartment. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay from the large beds (one super king, one king and two singles) to the well planned kitchen and spacious outside area. It's the little things that make it an easy and relaxing stay such as plenty of clothes hangers, decent kitchen utensils, clean modern appliances, including a water cooler, and really friendly and helpful maintenance staff.

Perfectly positioned with a 15 minute stroll, downhill, to the town and a 10TL taxi back from wherever you are in town! The sun rises over the mountain and over the pool in the morning dropping behind the trees and hills to the rear at around 5:30pm (mid August). 5 minutes away is the bus station providing transport to many of the local areas should you wish.

The apartment is private with none of the other accommodations overlooking the pool area. The entrance path to the accommodation block is on the other side of the garden wall which means that once in a while someone may walk along it but this really is not an issue and the otherwise complete privacy more than makes up for this. The sunbeds are comfortable and the pool towels provided means a bit less weight taken up in your luggage. It's also great to have so many large parasols providing essential shade for anyone who wants it.

Kalkan itself is a little gem which I'm almost reluctant to share with anyone! There are lots of bars, restaurants and shops to visit with little cobbled streets to explore. Many of the restaurants serve traditional Turkish food which is amazing but it's also easy to find somewhere for homemade burger and chips too! There are many shops selling 'designer' bags, purses, belts and watches as well as some with genuine Turkish leather designs - my preference.

The people are lovely. So friendly and helpful. Take your glasses prescription with you and visit Goz Opitk for high quality replacement lenses or complete pairs of glasses. He offers a fantastic quality and excellent priced service (we had lenses in six pairs of glasses replaced!).

There are beach clubs to visit, some to relax and some offer water sports. We also took a trip with Ali aboard Zeus for a full day sailing which I can't recommend highly enough.

Will we go back to Apartment Gemina? Almost certainly. Declared the best holiday by our teenage children you don't get a much higher recommendation than that!

We had a lovely holiday in this great apartment located in fabulous Kalkan. The apartment is modern and well equipped with a beautiful terrace and lovely private pool.

Kalkan has a lovely harbour within walking distance. There are plenty of restaurants all offering excellent value and well presented food. Everywhere we went was spotless. Everyone is friendly and very welcoming. The scenery is stunning and colour of the sea is unbelievable!

A Turkish Delight

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place, I know it is an apartment but we have stayed in Villa's with less room. The apartment is finished to a very high standard and it is better in real life than it is in the photo's. Set in a nice quiet area and just a 10 minute stroll down the hill to the town, although you can stop at any of the great bars and restaurants that you pass on the way. We always got a taxi back up the hill and it was only a couple of quid. The pool area is very well kept and had the sun all day long.

Fantastic apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Turkey quite often and up to now have always stayed around the Olu Deniz, Hisaronnu or Ovacik areas, however we fancied a change this year and whilst searching this website, came across Samantha and Jon's apartment and read the fantastic reviews associated with it. If that didn't sway us, as soon as we contacted Samantha and Jon on the phone then their enthusiasm and helpfulness certainly did, it was like speaking to a friend id known for years and they certainly made the transaction very easy.

The apartment itself is built and maintained to a very high quality with all the comforts needed to make it a home from home, including a midweek clean and linen/towel change. The location is absolutely ideal for the area, on the right side of the main road in a serene and peaceful olive grove with fantastic views either across the mountains or down into the bay.

Just a 5 min walk down the little private road and you are at the main Kalkan bus station, where you can catch a bus or Dolmus (minibus) to virtually anywhere in turkey. We went to Fethiye for the day ( 15TL each and 1.5hrs) and to Kas (6TL each and 30 mins)

The private pool is well maintained and is great for non swimmers or children as it is all one level (approx. 4ft deep)

It took us (mid 50's) approx. 15-20 mins to walk down the hill into Kalkan and a taxi back was about 10Tl inc the tip (approx. £2.50), or you can order a taxi direct to the door using the mobile phone provided (another great provision from the owners)

Kalkan itself is absolutely beautiful with its numerous restaurants and fantastic little shops, you could visit there for many years and not eat at the same restaurant and they are all fantastic.

I would thoroughly recommend visiting Kalkan and without question staying at Samantha and Jon's lovely apartment.

Nearest Airport
100 Kilometres
Nearest Beach
1.5 Kilometres
Car: not necessary


Situated along the Mediterranean Coast, also known as the Turquoise or Lycian Coast, Kalkan is frequently referred to as the Turkish Riviera. The nearest beach is 4km away and is surrounded by the Tauras Mountains. Kalkan combines the stunning sea views with an equally stunning mountains as a rugged backdrop. 30 mins East is the small town of Kas, or 1 hour West is the larger town of Fethiye. The whole coastline is dramatic due to the mountains and sea.


The nearest airport is Dalaman, approximately 1hr 30 minutes from Kalkan. The journey is a beautiful, scenic drive through the mountains and along the coast. We can assist with the organisation of transfers in private, air-conditioned vehicles to and from the airport.


Kalkan old town and harbour are a 10 to 15 minute walk from the apartment. There are plenty of taxis available if you would prefer for the journey back. The larger town of Kas is a stunning 30 min drive away. Visit Saklikent Gorge (30 mins) and walk through part of the 900 foot deep ravine, finishing with local trout served in cushion lined tree houses built over the river. The Lycian cities and Unesco world heritage sites of Patara, Xanthos and Letoon are also within easy reach.
