Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Kalkan - Cactus 39

About Liz Hall

We live in Sheffield and go out to stay in the apartment whenever we can. Myself and my husband make films and guides for birdwatchers.

Liz Hall purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Liz Hall chose Kalkan

We bought the apartment 5 years ago because we fell in love with the apartment's setting - in beautiful gardens with flowers and birdsong, as well as the sea view.

We also loved the friendliness of the Turkish people and the beauty of the area.

What makes this apartment unique

As you can see from the picture with my daughter, we love the water and the apartment has access to beautiful pools and - best of all - a tranquil, private seafront with crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean sea.

Wonderful position -Great views Wonderful resort

  • 4 out of 5
Appartment is wonderfully situated for views over Kalkan bay ,access to supermarket and courtesy coach
Pattara Prince resort exceeded our expectations Adult pool magnificent and the nightly buffet on the hotel patio was superb We enjoyed the use of the hotel boat to go across to Kalkan for the evening
A few constructive comments re (minor)criticisms of the appartment.The information in the appartment is way out of date re hotel facilities /restaurants(one is now closed )and telling guests to ring 9 pretty irrelevant without an hotel phone
The appartment does need a little T&C in places - freezer door is broken and the rubber seal on grill door has come away Finally. The a/c may need a service or replacing it struggled to cope with the high temperatures
Hope these comments are constructive We had a wonderful holiday and would certainly return to the Pattara Prince Resort in the future

Perfect views of Kalkan old town from apartment.

  • 3 out of 5
What you see on the web site is exactly what you get. A nice little apartment away from the hustle and bustle very near to the entrance gate of complex at the top of the hill and the supermarket. We would have used the infinity pool next to the supermarket instead of going down to the pool at the bottom of the hill as it did not open untill early June. Liz the owner was very easy to communicate with regarding booking and organising our taxis to and from Dalman airport. The resort is a 15 minute walk to the top of the old town or a 3 minute taxi ride that will cost 15 lira each way or the taxi boat will cst you 5 lira each.The last boat into the town leaves at 7.30 pm. When you eat in Kalkan old town you can eat anywhere and get a very good meal costing 30 to 50 lira each. Very good value. Kalkan is a gourmet paradise that we will definitely return too.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review - glad you loved the culinary delights of Kalkan. The old town is a lovely friendly place to spend the evening.

For future guests I'd just like to add that there is also a 25% discount on the bars and restaurants in the resort itself.

Be great to welcome you back again,

thanks, Liz

View across bay to Kalkan makes this special

  • 5 out of 5
Got back on Wednesday (16th April) after a lovely holiday. Weather not too bad; got to Patras beach and dared to do a bit of swimming - chilly! Sunbathing fine, though.

Also visited Xanthos - quite stunning - and the 'Sunken City' at Kekova, where we were taken for a boat ride (just the two of us) by an elderly gentleman who kept pointing out 'House! House!' each time we sailed over a ruin.

Met some lovely people as you predicted, especially the owner of Ata (next to the pizzeria) where we ate several times. He'd apparently worked in a Turkish restaurant in Haringey, but was glad to be back home in Kalkan.

We were also introduced to the mullah at the white mosque by the harbour, who showed us round - interesting, as of course this was the Orthodox church for the Greek community in Kalkan before they left in the early twenties.

We also had a spectacular thunderstorm one evening, with forked lightening over the mountains. We just sat on our balcony and watched, but it was all over in about half-an-hour.

We met an English family who thought that October was a good time to visit, as the water would be warmer, but not sure how soon it gets dark at that time of year. In any case, we'd love to go back next year.

Ideal location, beautifully kept, stunning views.

  • 5 out of 5
We had high expectations of this resort and apartment due to the lovely photographs online. Our expectations were certainly met and then some!

The apartment itself is a great size for a couple or a small family. It is clean and functional and the balcony is definitely the jewel in the crown. We spent many evenings of our holiday sat on the balcony looking out over Kalkan and the beautiful coast.

The resort is different to any that I've ever stayed in before. It is built into a leafy cliff side. Therefore although it is beautiful, it is pretty steep at times. The free bus which ferries people around is great though and when we chose to use it we never had to wait long. Frankly the climb from the apartment to the swimming platforms didn't take that long and the exercise helped us justify many ice-creams and desserts!

The pools and the swimming platforms are very well kept. During our stay in late June we never struggled to find space and found the facilities a relaxing place to be. We were often by the sea until 7 or 8 in the evening when we were still able to go swimming as it was so warm.

The area itself is well placed for seeing interesting sights. If you have a car, the resort is within easy reach of many interesting places.

The owners of the apartment were also great to deal with. All of my questions were answered promptly and they were proactive in providing us with lots of useful information.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 out of 5
Our first time in Turkey and we couldn‘t have picked a nicer place to stay – a really great base. It was as described, clean, very well equipped, and has a wonderful view of Kalkan, the bay and the surrounding hills. The apartment is at the top of the resort, which was convenient for the mini-market (about a minute away), and for getting into Kalkan either by taxi or a 20 minute walk.
We went on several excursions and the tour company picked us up early, being at the top of the complex made it very simple.
Patara Prince Resort itself was very attractive and beautifully landscaped – although it is set on a hill there is an ‘in house’ dolmus that runs up and down all the time. We tended to walk down enjoying the landscaping and flowers, spend time at one of the pools then catch the dolmus back up the hill.
Kalkan is a very pretty town, with lots of good restaurants so we were spoilt for choice – they always have someone outside to entice you in but it isn’t intimidating as they are extremely good humoured. We found the restaurants away from the harbour just as good, but cheaper!
Being my first time to Turkey I had no idea of what to expect but almost without exception the locals were so friendly and welcoming it was a bit of a culture shock! Such nice people.
Am already looking forward to my next visit and would definitely stay in this apartment again and will recommend it to friends.

Tips:
The round pool has the comfiest loungers!
The water taxi runs in the summer from 9.00am- 7.00pm, if it’s not in ask at reception and they call it from Kalkan harbour.
Abi Tours – we found them very good and recommend them.
Restaurants:
Omar’s Kitchen – in the Bus station!
Good home cooking and Omar picked us up and took us home!
Small House – good reputation, booking needed.

If you want to travel around without a car the bus station is quite a trek up the hill in town, but dolmus’s go to Patara and Kas and run about every half an hour. We were told that you can hail the Kas/Patara bus from the main road that which runs past the entrance to the resort, but we found that out too late!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely review. We agree - it's the sort of place you can do lots - with or without a car - or nothing! Glad you enjoyed the views, gardens and pools.
Thanks also for the tip about hailing the local bus - very useful!
