Uninterrupted Views 10 Mins Easy Stroll to Kalkan Centre/Harbour
About Kalkan Lover
Having visited and lived in various countries I first went to Kalkan in 2005 and fell in love with this beautiful place and its wonderful people. While being nosey around the real estate market, I wandered into my dream apartment and bought it!! I have not regretted that very impulsive decision for one moment. I have gone on to now own a beautiful Villa and hope that my guests to Villa Amethyst love it as much as my guests love the Emerald Apartment. I adore all that Turkey has to offer, the hospitality, the food, the views, the sunshine and the real family feeling you get as you make more and more friends each time you visit. I can work from a laptop so I am lucky I can work from my apartment too and I would spend so much more of my time in Kalkan if I could... oooh one day!
Kalkan Lover purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Kalkan Lover chose Kalkan
Friendly, picturesque, authentic, sophisticated but not commercial at all. I so hope it stays that way.
What makes this Apartment unique
Both my properties are very close to the harbour and all amenities. Kalkan is built on quite a steep hill and many properties have a steep climb home. I love our location, the views are fantastic and we are at the same level as the top end of town. No tough walk home, no taxi fares, just a slow stroll to walk off the many beautiful dinners you will enjoy. My other property, Villa Amethyst is right next door so if there is more space needed, I am happy to accommodate you. Villa Amethyst Ref: TK3343 sleeps up to 8.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Perfect holiday destination
Not been to Kalkan before - but will definitely be going back. It's a hillside village above a beautiful harbour, marina and pebbly beach - so by definition to is on a slope. But the Emerald apartment is in a great location that means the walk to the top of the Old Town is an easy, fairly level 10 minute stroll and equally easy to walk up the Kalamar road a few hundred metres to get to the wonderful Porcinnis and 'The Brothers' restaurants. Taxis back from the marina are only 15 lira (£2) and take just a couple of mins. The apartment itself has everything you could wish for and views of the harbour and marina to die for from the lounge and bedroom windows. The shared pool is a good size with plenty of loungers and umbrellas - but is 2 metres deep all round - really not suitable for young ones. We had a brilliant week and would thoroughly recommend the Emerald!!
Great location and well equipped apartment
A peaceful holiday overlooking Kalkan bay, harbour and town. The apartment is very well equipped and benefits from two newly refurbished bathrooms. We loved our stay and always enjoy the variety of restaurants, bars and shops that are in easy walking distance. We will definitely be back!
A clean, comfortable, spacious and peaceful property with great views. Well-maintained and well-equipped.
Maintenance and cleaning staff efficient and friendly.
We've stayed at The Emerald apartment for two years now and booked again for next year. The views are the best in Kalkan and it has everything you could wish for to make your holiday luxurious and comfortable. It is kept immaculately clean and there is nothing negative to say. The walk into town is stunning and we love it. Jacki is great to communicate with when booking too.
Appreciate the great feedback as always and I love to hear your holiday went so well again. Thanks for loving the apartment so much and I look forward to you staying again next year :) Jacki
We've stayed at Emerald apartments twice now and love the location the views and the spacious apartment. The pool is never busy . The kitchen and bathrooms and very roomy and well equipped. The cleaning lady popped in daily and was very pleasant . It does have steps to pool and apartment and is 15 mins walk from lovely restaurants and harbour but we eat loads and never put on weight !!! Will be back again next year thank you Jackie for letting us stay
