I found this property ticked all the boxes for me to include in our family holiday. What a great choice, the location has not been overrun by awful tourists, the property itself is well built and maintained. Close to many good restaurants and markets and with great views. The owner was very helpful and made our time there a real pleasure. Be sure to use the services of the management team. Many thanks once again.
Fantastic apartment, very spacious with everything we needed and great location ten minutes walk from the harbour and only a few minutes to the old town. There was plenty of choice for restaurants and cocktail bars. A choice of two pools which was great and even though they were shared with other apartments they were never crowded.
Kalkan has many beach clubs that offer sun loungers on platforms next to the sea and even a trampoline in the sea at one! Two sandy beaches are close by but taxis/bus are necessary to get to them. The beach clubs pay for your transport by taxi or boat taxi.
There are many boat trips available which are great value for money. For 60 lira we were taken out for the day around the coastal area, at one stop we had a clay/mud bath. The crew provided a delicious lunch and were very welcoming.
All the locals are really friendly and helpful. Food is quite reasonably priced but alcohol is quite expensive (we bought some in duty free and had drinks at the apartment).
Overall, had a wonderful time!
Thank you Hannah, It was a pleasure to have you and your friends at our apartment. You are very welcome to come back and stay again. We are glad that you had a lovely holiday. Sorry about the Wifi. I live in Australia . I am going to Kalkan for my holiday next year and have wifi connected.
