Kelly Willmott Joyce purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Kelly Willmott Joyce chose Kalkan
We had been considering a holiday home for some years but had never quite found the right location for us. After our first visit to Kalkan we fell in love with the area and knew that this was a place that we would be happy to visit time and time again
What makes this Apartment unique
One of the outstanding features of this apartment is the outdoor space including pool (approx 10m x 5m) which is for your sole use and not shared by any of the other apartments. The large terrace easily accommodates 6 sun loungers with areas of both sun and shade which makes it perfect for sun worshippers and those that like to take some shade from the hot Turkish sun. You also have the added benefit of an outside seating area, bbq, dining table and sofa area for reading

Just returned from another fabulous 10 days in Kalkan, this time at the beautiful Elif Apartments. The Apartment itself was lovely, bright, spacious and very well appointed with everything you need for a relaxing holiday in the sun. The pool was great, large enough for a swim and cool enough to cool down after a long day spent in the sun. We have stayed in quite a few apartments/villas in Kalkan over the years and this was certainly one of the best. Thank you Kelly for letting us stay and hope we can return soon!!
Thank you for your lovely review Nicola. We would be very happy to welcome you back to Elif anytime.
Beautiful apartment, more like a villa!
We had a lovely 2 weeks at Elif apartments. With a fantastic outdoor terrace and our own private pool, it felt like we were in a villa! The weather was really hot when we were there so the large pool was a welcome relief from the heat, as was the water cooler! Although Turkey isn't normally inclusive in UK mobile phone plans, nearly everyone there (restaurants, local contact, taxis) uses Whatsapp to communicate, which with WiFi made it easy and 'free'. We used Adem, the local contact, a few times to replenish the water, which was done really quickly. The kitchen is well equipped for eating in (which we did a few times) But equally there are many great restaurants in Kalkan which we ate at, our favourite was Mussakka. Although Kalkan is very 'hilly, taxis are cheap (around £2.50) and plentiful. The Thursday market, which is just down the road is also worth a visit, for all your 'Genuine Fake' goods! All in all a great holiday in a superb apartment.
Thank your for your kind review David, it makes us very happy to know that our guests enjoy their stay at Elif as much as we do
A lovely modern apartment with plenty of space indoors and outside.
Just returned from a lovely holiday in Kalkan. Kelly’s apartment suited us perfectly being a family of 6, spacious inside and out with a lovely private pool. The pool and outside area were maintained daily during our stay. The apartment is clean, modern & surprisingly spacious. Walkable distance from the town and supermarket.
Thank you, would definitely return.
So glad you enjoyed your stay Nikki and of course we would be happy to welcome you back next time you visit Kalkan x
This was our fist trip to Kalkan and was also our first holiday away just the two of us. We chose this apartment based on the previous reviews and also the views in the photos and we was not disappointed.
Kelly arranged the transfers from the airport for us and they were waiting with some water which was needed, The transfer time was about 1hr 30 plus a 15 minute stop at the cafe on route which was very nice.
On arrival at the apartment there was a welcome pack in the fridge which we have never had before and this had all the items you needed to get you started.
The apartment was very clean and well laid out and the pool was just perfect.
Kalkan town was very nice and there is some very nice restaurants and it seems that the whole area has not been spoiled still yet very traditional food.
The walk down and up from the town is not for the faint hearted but was nice after a nice meal to walk off some of the food and drink.
We will defiantly be going back next year and can highly recommend this fantastic apartment
Spacious, well equipped, clean, well located and very comfortable!
We've been to Kalkan many times and stayed in many different places but this ranks as one of our favourite. There were 3 of us so we had plenty of room to spread out but there's ample room for 6 people. The apartment is very light, spacious and well furnished with a good selection of equipment, books, games etc. The beds were incredibly comfortable which is important and the air con worked well. Outside there was always sun or shade and the sofas with the large parasol was one of our favourite places to sit in the heat of the day. The pool was a good size, not cold and plenty of room to swim lengths. We were a bit concerned it might be a bit far out of town but we needn't have worried and the location is very peaceful. It's a 5 minute stroll to Migros
which is an excellent supermarket, 10 mins to the town and 15 to the harbour. We always walked in and got a taxi back, which are still very good value. Kelly was friendly and helpful with our booking and always replied promptly to us. She kindly arranged our airport transfers which went smoothly and the drivers were very good. Adem (local maintenance team) was very efficient and sorted out any queries quickly also arranging for fresh drinking water to be delivered when we ran out.
Thank you Kelly, we loved your apartment, can highly recommend it and hope to stay again on a future visit.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay Judy. We'd love to have you back on your next visit to Kalkan
What a fabulous all round holiday
The apartment is superb with everything to a very high standard and everything you could want and need on holiday.
The outside area is super with the very comfortable sun loungers, table and chairs and a corner suite just right for drinks before you go out to eat
The town of Kalkan is unlike other places we have been to in Turkey, much less fake hussle and busel and much more high quality restaurants all with there own take on Turkish food. We ate in 6 different retaurants any one you would be pleased to return to.
We hired a car as in October the roads are not that busy, it was great allowing us to easily visit the local beaches and ride up into the mountains behind the resort
All in all a great week and I am sure we will return
Kalkan town beach is 10 minutes walk away. There are 5 beach clubs in the area. These offer water sports, sun loungers and umbrellas, showers and excellent bar/ restaurant facilities. Patara beach is a 15 minutes bus ride away and famous for its 18kms of unbroken sand and clear warm water. Kaputas is a small but beautiful beach and is a 10 minute bus ride away.
Dalaman is the preferred airport and is around 90 minutes away. Thomas Cook, Thomson, Easy Jet, Jet 2 and Monarch all fly into Dalaman. Airport transfers or car hire can be arranged at an additional cost and usually paid direct to the company providing the service. Car hire is not essential in Kalkan as local transport is both plentiful and cheap but widely available if you choose to book in resort. All local tourist beauty spots are easily accessed.

The ancient sites of Xanthos, Letoon, Pinar, Tlos and Patara are within easy reach.

Amongst the fields and orchards is the old working village of Bezirgan.
