Kalkan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, large balcony, fully equiped kitchen, can sleep 4

This SUPER FRONT LINE APARTMENT is on the first floor, with a large 13ft balcony, west facing, having uninterrupted views across the bay and out to sea, with views over Snake & Mouse Islands. It comes with a fully equipped bathroom, kitchen, living room, balcony and full air-conditioning. There are five shared swimming pool set in a garden of olive and palm trees.

This apartment occupies what is arguably the very best position in Kalkan, having a quiet location, yet within 5 minutes walk of the main streets, shops and restaurants, harbour and 7 Beach Clubs.

No need for expensive TAXIS every night to get back to your villa half way up a mountain!!

We provide both balcony and swimming pool sun loungers.

The apartment is in the Ortaalan area (central) of Kalkan.

Honestly you do not need to take masses of baggage, because you really do not need much, and anything you forgot can be bought locally anyway, so don't waste money paying airlines for baggage you just do not need?

WARNING - PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOU NOW NEED TO OBTAIN YOUR TURKISH VISA ON LINE AS YOU CANNOT NOW GET YOUR VISA ON ARRIVAL AT AIRPORT YOU NEED TO GO TO www.evisa.gov.tr THIS OF COURSE DEPENDS ON WHICH PASSPORT YOU HOLD BUT BEFORE YOU CAN ENTER TURKEY YOU NEED TO LOOK AT THIS!

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR ENTRY AND EXIT DATES CORRECT. VISAS ARE ISSUED ON MULTIPLE RE-ENTRY BASIS VALID 90 DAYS IN ANY 180 DAYS. WE WILL ADVISE BUT IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE A VALID ENTRY VISA.

Historic Sites Nearby: It is within easy reach of Myra, Pinara, Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon, Patara, the Saklikent Gorge, and Kekova. You travel to Kalkan via either Dalaman or Antalya airports, and then by private air-conditioned transfer (90 mins).

When you are in Kalkan you can spend the day on the pebble beach, sit by the pool, or visit the beach club. If however you are feeling energetic you can arrange a jeep safari, a boat trip on one of Turkey's famous Gulets, go diving or fishing, perhaps trekking, sailing or paragliding. Jeep safari's are a must!

BEACH CLUBS

Within walking distance of the apartment you will find 'Indigo Beach Club' on the right side of the harbour, also you have the 'Yali Beach Club' and almost next to that you have the 'Caletta Caletta Beach club' So you are not short of choice?? If you go to the left side of the Harbour you will find the Kleo Bar next to the Kalkan Town Beach!

From this end of the Harbour you can get a FREE BOAT across the bay to the 'Patara Prince Beach Club.'! Plus 2 others.

Other Things To Do: You could of course spend the day at one of the 4 Turkish baths, or visit one of the many Turkish Barbers, or just go shopping in one of the Old Towns' many shops. Sit and have a drink in the harbour and watch the boats come in! Spend the evening eating and drinking in one of the many super restaurants or cafes. There are variety of bars, some having blues / jazz or belly dancing. You could of course arrange a moonlight boat trip with dinner on board.

The South West Aegean and Mediterranean coast of Turkey has now become the holiday destination of choice for Europeans. This is not only because the people are so friendly, the food is so good, and because Turkey has a fantastic climate (Season March through November) but also it is very secure and safe. Oh and did we mention that you get really good value for money? Turkey not only provides super beach and activity holidays but also a wealth of archaeological sites from the Lycians to Byzantine, Roman and Greek ruins.

Dalaman Airport - Warning!: The new terminal at Dalaman Airport is very expensive ref: food soft drinks beer etc. We would suggest that you take these type of items with you for your return journey.

We also advise that you do NOT change money on the way in to Dalaman Airport as the rates are NOT good, we suggest you change money in Kalkan. The Post office (PTT) on the main street usually has good rates. (Open till Midnight) Most people in Kalkan and even on way (if you stop for a beer etc) will take Sterling. There are 5 or six banks in Kalkan now all with ABM's. / hole in the wall - bankomats!

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT AIRPORT TRANSFER SYSTEMS WILL COLLECT YOU 4 HOURS BEFORE DEPARTURE AS YOU NEED TO BE AT AIRPORT 2 HOURS BEFORE YOUR FLIGHT !

Please make sure that you have full travel insurance that covers you for missed flights and your airline going bust !

We cannot accept responsibility in any way shape or form for accident / injury / missed flights/toothache etc however caused.

Truly delightfull in location - quiet spot but few mins. from Kalkan centre & magnificent views from balcony. Super pools - refreshing in hot weather (October perfect) - grounds immaculate with blossoms everywhere. Apartment well equipped (large fridge/freezer, books, radio/cds, hairdryer) & spotless - bins emptied daily(take small bin liners&toilet paper). Loads info. on KalKan.Owner in regular contact beforehand giving 5* customer service.Huge choice good value restaurants. We hired a jeep (trips expensive)& spent days exploring mountains & ancient sites -roads good&locals welcoming BUT no English. Wonderfully lush with springs gushing. Beware getting v wet if walking in Saklikent Gorge! Will appeal to those wanting to both relax in picturesque Kalkan&explore walking in the steps of 2000 B.C.! A lovely welcoming country as yet unspoilt. Strongly recommend.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: The whole area around this bit of coast is worth exploring!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 20, 2013

Lovely quiet and pretty setting surrounded by bougainvillea.
Visited the first morning by the agent to ask if everything was ok or if we needed any help at all.
Apartment had everything we needed - would have been nice if there were ceiling fans instead of overhead lights to keep the use of air conditioning to a minimum.
We found not only the locals but the other people staying in the apartments to be very friendly, some having been back 12 years running
I would happily recommend this property. It is so close to all the shops and restaurants that you dont have to buy provisions all at once.
The food I would say was the best value was at Adana's up the hill next to Kipa supermarket. 32 lira (£11) for a meal for 2 and tasted great! Also ate at AliBaba's further up the hill. Rami's down the hill. Choosing from such a huge number of restaurants was difficult but the closer to the harbour the more they charge. Some catered too much for English taste which we avoided wanting to only eat traditional Turkish food which was delicious.
Patara beach was amazing but windy so we got sand blasted which was a shame.
We went to Saklikent Gorge, well worth a trip on a hot day. We had a hire car so didnt go on an organised excursion.
Went on a boat trip around the bay with Divine boat tours (discount if you mention Andrew and K2). Fabulous day out, excellent lunch on board too.
Spent a day out in Kas 25kms north of Kalkan. Very nice town, totally different but well worth a visit. Had a fantastic mixed meze for lunch which was all we needed, couldn't have eaten more.
Thursday we went to the market - a long trog up the hill but again well worth the visit. Prepare to haggle though and check out all the stalls first. Found it was worth watching others deal first and then have a go. The selection of herbs and spices was a sight to see - we came back with loads.
Beware the lure of the designer labels everywhere - they're all fakes although some actually advertiser they are genuine fakes!
Overall a brilliant week, Kalkan is a joy, the Turkish people the friendliest I have ever come across. I bought a dress, the next night I returned wearing it. I wanted to say thank you to the lady in the shop who'd spent an hour hunting through her stock until she found one I liked. Her face wreathed in smiles, she kissed both cheeks and hugged me, touched that I had bothered to return. After that she waved each time she saw us.
Amazing!!
Owner's Response: Well now you know just how friendly the people are in Kalkan not just the "Locals" but even the "Tourists". Am sitting here replying to this and suddenly feeling very hungry for some good Turkish food, and some serious Turkish sunshine !!!
I am pleased that you had such a good time but of course it's very hard not too.
I feel a day out on a Gulet is really a MUST, not something to be missed, no many how many times you go to Kalkan. And as you say many many people love the place so much they go year after year, some people visit as much as 3 times a year, and a lot of people from the UK end up living there. Can't say I blame them. Can you?
As I say, it's not possible to go hungry in Kalkan, but it is possible to put on a "little" weight??
Pleased you had a super trip.
Hope to have you back at K2 soon. Andrew

Caution when bookingKalkan or Kas (Cash)

  • Submitted: Sep 18, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
It has come to my attention that on occasion some people using this website thinking they were staying in Kalkan have actually booked a rental in Kas!(cash)
Kas is super but please check your actual final location carefully before booking.
K2 is central in Kalkan.(Kas is another 45mins East)

Good Accommodation in a great location.

A lovely apartment within walking distance to the old town. The property is in a pretty development well maintained quiet with everything you need for a perfect holiday. We have been to Kalkan before so knew the importance of location if you didn't want to hire a car or pay for taxis. K2 is in a fantastic spot a few minutes walk and you're in the centre a massive plus point.
From booking to being picked up from the airport Andrew couldn't have been more helpful and professional. We hope to return to Kalkan in the next couple of years and would definitely book this accommodation again. Thanks for a superb holiday Alison & Graeme.
Owner's Response: Well we say it is the "Best Location in Kalkan" (probably) but it is suprising how many people book somwhere which they think is a bit cheaper and having spent 2 days trying hard to have a heart attack at 2am in the morning finally give up and hire a car or due to wear and tear at that time have to resort to Taxis around the clock, sometimes just to get milk! Very expensive and time consuming! Well you know what they say "Location Location Location" and a gental stroll from everything, must be a good idea.
Pleased you had a really nice holiday!
Andrew
PS. We have heard of people actually booking properties above the D400 - unbelievable but true!???? Some people have been known to book in Kalamar or the otherside of the bay!!
Kalkan is hard enough to get to as a venue so you really don't want to make it even more difficult when you get there especially if you have limited time. Damm hard to get around 300 restaurants in 10 days - what do you think? Stay longer next trip!

Kalkan is a historic town situated on Turkey's gorgeous Lycian Turquoise Coast, once a sleepy fishing village, Kalkan today is quietly sophisticated, yet is still extremely picture postcard pretty! With a multitude of upmarket restaurants with rooftop views over the small harbour and 'Snake & Mouse Islands' it has become known as 'The Beverly Hills of the Eastern Mediterranean'. Kalkan sits under the spectacular backdrop of the Taurus mountains and gazes out to sea over the bay to the endless shimmering turquoise waters of the Eastern Mediterranean.

KALKAN WHERE THE STARS ARE NEAREST!

Quoted in the Travel pages of the SUNDAY TIMES as having one of the ''10 BEST VIEWS IN THE WORLD''.

Don't forget in winter you can go skiing not too far from Kalkan.

Other Activities: super restaurants, jeep safari's, sunbathing, historic sites, paragliding, & lots more!

Ski: Did you know that when you visit Kalkan in winter months you can go 'Snow Skiing' only 90mins drive away @

Eren Mountain Ski Centre. Equipment rental available - boots, skis, snowboads etc! The center has T-Bar lifts, and you can get hot wine, meals, and even stay for a night !! Not quite Zermatt but makes for a bit of fun for a couple of days. Probably treat it as 24hrs out of Kalkan and if you go we will not charge you for the time you are away from base camp as it were.! Can't say better than that.?
