About Adrian & Jane Gunn
Retired company director, married to Jane for 50 years and living in Bowdon, Cheshire.
Adrian & Jane Gunn purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Adrian & Jane Gunn chose Kalkan
Purchased new from developer in 2004. We chose this location because of its close proximity to the village and the outstanding view from the balcony. We have not seen a view to better it anywhere in the world. We bought 2 apartments and knocked them together at the planning stage to provide a good sized three bedroom 1st floor apartment to share with family and friends. We have been doing just that for the last 14 years and will continue to do so, but feel it is time now to let others enjoy it when we are not there.
What makes this Apartment unique
We enjoy the friendly atmosphere amongst the residents of the Mediterranean Apartments as in the rest of Kalkan. It is rarely overcrowded and we never tire of that view. The combination of the two apartments provides considerably more space for 4/5 people than the Duplex apartments on the same complex.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
A brilliant property
A. Very well appointed apartment in a great position to explore Kalkan.
Our fourth time in Kalkan and we would love to return to this property.
Excellent and would thoroughly recommend
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Would be happy to welcome you back in the future.
Great apartment great views lovely pool
Great location. Been to Kalkan 7 times and this development is the nearest you can get to the town and have a pool. In fact 5 pools. I had to spend a night in the 3rd bedroom. It is only a child’s bed but you could mistake it for an ordinary bed. The living room terrace is completely taken up with the dining table, given that most people go to Kalkan for the eating out experience. Even if the table wasn’t there the lovely views of the bay would only have been available if you remained standing due to the overgrowth of flowers. The only thing really that let the apartment down (this is maintenance people fault) the whole development is overgrown with the creeping flowers. They are lovely but need looking after. Having said that we enjoyed our stay. Well equipped well serviced clean apartment. Gorgeous pool and nice neighbors. We would certainly return
Thank you for your constructive review. The bougainvillea does grow very profusely during the Summer months, throughout the development, sorry you found it out of control. We will take this up with the gardeners.
The study/single bedroom has a sofa bed 6’10” x 2’8”, our family members and guests have found it perfectly comfortable.
Pleased to hear that otherwise you enjoyed your stay.
Great apartment lovely location.
The apartment is well equipped, comfortable and spacious. Great views of bay. The complex is clean with colourful and well kept gardens. Pool area is quiet and easily accessed from the apartment.
Kalkan town is on the doorstep with numerous good restuarants, bars and shops. The harbour is about a 5 minute walk along a very steep hill, which can be avoided if you detour on foot through the old town which only takes a couple of minutes longer.
I recommend the apartment and to visit Kalkan.
Great apartment with stunning views and fantastic location
This is our third time in Kalkan but our first at this apartment. We would definitely recommend it as it has the best location and no need for a hire car as everything is on the doorstep. The views are fantastic and although it’s a central location it’s very quiet. The pool is clean and flowers are beautiful. The apartment has everything you need. A welcome pack of bread butter jam juice milk tea coffee fruit crisps cheese eggs etc meant we didn’t have to run to the supermarket on arrival. There are loads of DVDs and books and even a sewing kit!!! Adrian the owner was very quick at replying to emails and organising airport transfers and the agent in Kalkan was on hand for anything we needed. We will definitely return. Thank you for a fantastic holiday. We loved your apartment.
We've just returned from our 6th holiday in Kalkan, what a beautiful place.
This was our 1st time staying at the Mediterranean Appts which is perfectly positioned for easy access to the harbour, town and local amenities.
The apartment we stayed in is one of the largest on the complex and was very well equipped. There are 5 decent sized pools and on many occasions we had one to ourselves.
Perfect holiday and looking forward to going back
We had a fantastic time at this lovely 3 bedroom apartment within the lovely Mediteranean Apartment Complex in Kalkan. The apartment had everything you could need with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies with spectacular views over the swimming pool, kalkan bay and of the mountains and the starry moonlit sky at night. It has air con throughout and a very useful washing machine and cold water dispenser. The whole complex is beautifully manicured and superbly maintained with 5 swimming pools spread over it. The atmosphere around the pools with other guests is very friendly and relaxing as everybody has their own allocated loungers. The location is perfect for access to the nearby shops, restaurants and general amenities whilst also maintaining the required peace and tranquility one would want at night in order to sleep well. The appointed agent Yaser is just over the road and was extremely helpful on the rare occasions needed. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation to anybody.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay in Zakkum apartment. We hope to welcome you back in the future.
Kalkan village: 250 metres from apartment.
Kalkan's Harbour, and Blue Flag beach is a 5 to 10 minute stroll from the Apartment. There are also several excellent beach clubs situated around the bay of Kalkan; these can be easily reached by free water taxi from the harbour. Kaputas beach is a 10 minute drive away and Patara beach, a world heritage site, famous for its 18km of white sand and clear water is 25 minutes away by car/dolmus. Daily boat-trips can be taken from the harbour around the islands and inlets in Kalkan and Kalamar Bays.
The newly built airport at Dalaman is more efficient and faster to travel through and with the opening of the Gocek tunnel, the car journey from airport to Kalkan is approx. 1 hour and 30 minutes. We can arrange private airport transfers to and from the Apartment. Car hire is not essential in Kalkan as all facilities are so close to the Apartment. Outings to local places of interest can be accessed by dolmus. However car hire is available in the village if required.
Kalkan is amid many places of interest. The local town of Kas is approx. 30 minutes away to the east on the dolmus. There is also Fethiye, a delightful harbour town lying in easy reach of Olu Deniz, an hour away to the west by dolmus. Also within an hours drive are Xanthos and Sydyma, the spectacular Saklikent gorge and the underwater remains at Kekova.
Built around an ancient Greek/Turkish harbour on the beautiful Turquoise coast, this small town has developed to provide everything needed by the modern tourist, without losing any of its charm and without being spoilt by tourism. Kalkan is an endless source of narrow, winding streets that twist their way down to the harbour. Despite its size, Kalkan offers a quaint village atmosphere with its shops (selling Turkish carpets, leather, spices, pottery, gold and silver), bars and many excellent restaurants. Everything is within easy reach of the clear blue Mediterranean sea, and boat trips can be organised. Nature lovers will find many walks and places of interest both within Kalkan and also in the vicinity. Farming surrounds the area, and a meal in the local trout farm/restaurants set high in the mountains behind Kalkan should not be missed.
There are banks with ATM, post office, several supermarkets all within easy reach of the Apartment. Kalkan is serviced by tour operators, buses, coaches and taxis. Every Thursday there is an excellent market in Kalkan offering leather goods, silver, clothing, pottery, linen, fresh fruit and vegetables and much more.
