Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sarah,

Thanks for letting me send our review through you thats great.

Lovely apartment.

5 out of 5

Review submitted 7th oct 2013

Date of stay 11th sept 2013

Lovely apartment, with amazing views looking over Kalkan, always something to look at. The apartment is beautifully furnished to a very high standard and very clean.

Sarah has thought of every thing you could possibly need and more, she has even supplied binoculars which we used a lot.

Kalkan is a lovely resort with the most amazing restaurants, you are spoilt for choice. If you should have a car it is well worth taking a trip up into the mountains behind Kalkan, where you will see breathtaking views around every corner.

We found Sarah very thoughtful, on the day that you depart for your holiday she will text you to wish you a safe journey and hope that you enjoy your holiday - which we thought was a very nice touch

We have stayed in many aparments over the years, and this has to rate as one of the best, that is why we are planning to go again next year!

  • Both bathrooms are fully tiled wet rooms, you can splash around with impunity! Bathroom 1, the 'family' bathroom has a large shower cubicle, WC with integral bidet (a la Turkish style) and wash basin. This bathroom is adjacent to the twin room, but not en suite, and therefore serves as the house bathroom. Bathroom 2 has a hand basin, WC with integral bidet and a shower over the whirlpool bath. Those over 5ft 6 may find this shower a challenge to fit under so I would recommend using the shower in the house bathroom or treating yourself to a whirlpool bath. Since this bathroom has a view of the bay and a shelf just begging to accommodate your glass of wine the latter is preferable!

This is best enjoyed at sunset with a chilled glass of the local white wine or a glass of smokey red, the choice is yours. The Imam's call to prayer only adds to the ambience! The twin room has two comfortable single beds, a large wardrobe (with those all important coat hangers), two drawer units, and access to the balcony with fabulous views over bay. A hairdryer is provided so that you don't have to fight over the one in the master bedroom! The balcony has a table and four chairs, ideal for enjoying breakfast.

The apartment has four sun loungers for you to enjoy the sun terrace around the infinity pool. This sun trap has such a fantastic view that you may decide not to move, but Kalkan does have its own clean, pebbled beach which is only approx. 15 minutes away. You could try one of the beach clubs. Recommended is Indigo Beach Bar, at the end of the harbour. They do an excellent Chicken Ceaser Salad and will bring it, and a large cold beer, to your sun lounger! If you want sand then a trip to Patara beach is a must. 18km of golden sand and rolling surf that provides a natural breeding ground for turtles. A seven day trip to Kalkan will allow you to relax, a ten day trip will ensure you are relaxed and have seen some of the sights, a fourteen day trip will see you totally chilled and begging not to have to go home!

Alexander Dream Apartment Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was 5 star, clean, bright, comfortable and modern, it had everything we needed. The views are amazing just a dream to wake up to, every room has views looking down onto the town.

Sarah is a great owner and answered any queries we had, she went above and beyond.

The people of Kalkan are so friendly and welcoming, the food is amazing and everything is so fresh.

I would return to this area in a heartbeat, I understand if you have been to Kalkan once you will return again.

I enjoyed a few boat trips which are great value for money it was a great way to keep cool on a hot day and a lovely way to take in the surrounding areas.

I cannot rate this highly enough I will be back!!!!!!😘

beautiful, clean, contemporary apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment, well equipped and with great views. From first enquiry, through booking and arrival information, Sarah was fantastic to deal with. I would definitely recommend this apartment for others visiting Kalkan and would love to return. The pool areas is lovely, the roof terrace and balcony were great for eating on and reading and the views were fantastic.

Just returned from Alexander Dream Apartment in Kalkan and had an amazing stay there. We arrived very late and was greeted at the apartment by Erkan who manages the property for Sarah. He had arranged airport transfers for us, some supplies to tie us over until we got to the supermarket and even went out of his way to get us a bottle of red wine to start our holiday.

The apartment was very clean, very well maintained and caters for your every need. Sarah the owner was helpful with recommendations for restaurants, instructions how to use the facilities TV/DVD'c/CD's etc. Kalkan is a fabulous place to stay, the people are very friendly and you will be spoilt for choice by the excellent selection of good quality restaurants on offer all reasonably priced. The laid back atmosphere is fantastic and there is something for everyone to enjoy. Can't wait to go again

Alexander Dream apartment truely lives up to its name - it is a dream.

Thank you Sarah

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

So happy with our choice of Sarah's apartment in Kalkan. Was only myself and my partner so we had bags of room, and a bathroom each! The apartment was great, we loved both the balcony off the living area (good that its covered so we could still enjoy wine outside whilst watching a dramatic thunderstorm!) and the spacious roof terrace off the master bedroom floor. We actually never closed the curtains at night because it was lovely waking up and having the wonderful views right from the bed. The kitchen was very well equipped but, being a holiday, we didn't actually cook. The fruit press came in very handy though! The sofa and chairs in the sitting area were very comfy, fell asleep on them more than once, and it was also great having the TV , surround sound etc. even though we only watched telly a couple of times. The walk down to the restaurants and harbour was only about 10 minutes. Bit of a harder slog back up but not too bad. We never felt the need to resort to a taxi. Was a good idea to walk off and digest some of the lovely meals we had. (in particular can thoroughly recommend Kaya and Kalamaki ). We hired a jeep for a few days which was easily parked on a little access road just at the bottom of the apartment. Sarah was so nice and totally helpful during the whole enquiry and booking process. All emails and texts were answered very promptly and in a lovely friendly manner. She left loads of relevant info at the apartment...all the "how to's" and "where to's". Was also really touching to find out why she bought the apartment in the first place...you'll have to read all about it when you get there!

Have been to Turkey before but not to Kalkan. It was recommended by a Turkish friend some years ago and certainly did not disappoint, and I would say that Sarah's apartment is an ideal base.

Loved our stay in Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

First time in Turkey was a bit apprehensive but I was really blown away by how accommodating and friendly everyone was. Would recommend the apartment and area. They just couldnt be more helpful. We really did have a brilliant time – the beach, gorge walking, and boat trip were great and the people so friendly. Had some of the best meals ever - Sade was the best. The girls desserts were to die for. The roof terrace at night is great for star gazing and enjoying a glass or two of wine!

Everything about the apartment and our stay in Kalkam was amazing - we loved it.

The apartment was so beautiful:very clean and very well maintained and caters for your every need. We would highly recommend it.

Sarah the owner couldn't have been more helpful with recommendations for restaurants, instructions how to use the facilities TV/DVD'c/CD's. Sarah truely made us feel at home in her wonderful apartment and we cannot thank her enough for helping to make it one of the best holiday experiences we've had.

Kalkan is a beautiful place and the most friendly ever. To sit on the roof terrace with a glass of wine is the perfect end to a perfect day and something we will never forget.

Alexander Dream apartment truely lives up to its name - it is a dream.

Thank you Sarah

Car: not necessary

Kalkan is a thriving town that still retains the charm of the fishing village from which it has developed. The harbour, with its colourful boats, provides a variety of places to eat, recommended restaurants being Trio and Aubergine.

Boat trips from the harbour will take you out to the islands and offer the chance to take a mud bath. Lunch is included and usually consist of locally caught fish.

Up the hill from the harbour are a myriad of small shops selling local pottery, crafts, jewellery and the leather goods Turkey is famous for. For those seeking a bargain Kalkan has a market every Thursday where haggling skills are a must!

Kalkan has a small, clean pebble beach and a number of beach clubs that will provide a sunbed all day at a small charge. For those who prefer sand Patara beach in only twenty minutes away by car, taxi or dolmus and provides 18km of white sand and rolling surf.
