Duplex Apartment in Kas, Antalya, Turkey - Stunning Location & Views, Large Infinity Pool, Relax In Comfort & Style, WiFi
About Ian Holland
We discovered Kas 25 years ago when it was a small fishing village. We've since traveled extensively over the years and on returning to Kas a few years ago with our children, we were pleased to discover that the village had grown into a small cosmopolitan town, but had maintained its charm and village atmosphere. Kas has not been spoilt by mass tourism. For us it ticked all the boxes, a place to get away from it all and relax, with plenty of options for grown ups & children. Great places to eat and drink and the opportunity to overlook arguably one of the best vistas in the Mediterranean day or night. As our guests, our home is for you to enjoy, with the quality & comfort we would expect on holiday. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do and you will have a memorable holiday in Kas
Ian Holland purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Ian Holland chose Kaş
Its all about location, the views are simply stunning. Its a place you can just sit back, relax in comfort, & watch the world go by from the pool side or balcony. The apartment is situated on a small select development and is generously proportioned, with good sized bedrooms and bathrooms all finished and furnished to a high standard. All bedrooms have balconies or patios with sea views. The infinity pool and the views from it are very much the icing on the cake. You will find the apartment is a 10 minute walk from the town centre harbour and nearest beach. Close enough to have easy access, but high enough to be above the bustle, & heat of the town & catch the cooling summer breeze. Kas is a place for those who are a little more discerning about enjoying the best Turkey has to to offer.

Soak up the sun listening to the fishing boats chug in and out of the harbour below you, or enjoy a pre dinner drink on the balcony as you watch the sunset over the Peninsula. Its all there for you to enjoy.

Great apartment in a fantastic town
We absolutely loved our visit to Kas and our stay in this lovely apartment with its magnificent views over the town, mountains and coastline. OK ! The hill up to the apartment is rather steep (especially if you have dodgy knees) but we simply got a taxi for 15 to 20 lire ( circa £2 ). Because of the availability of taxis, local buses and boats we didn’t bother hiring a car. Hilary organised transfers from and to the airport and that couldn’t have worked out better.. door to door and the guy even carried our bags into the apartment. We are going to miss breakfast on the balcony and having an evening beer watching the magnificent sunset. We couldn’t recommend Ian’s apartment highly enough and we will definitely be coming back to the lovely town of Kas with its friendly people, fantastic weather and superb restaurants.
I’m really pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind feedback.
We work hard to keep the standards high and comments like yours make it all worth while.
The location speaks for itself, we never get tired of the view, it’s something special and we are very lucky. Photos just don’t do it justice.
We would love to see you back again sometime.
Me and my husband had a lovely stay at Carpici and in Kas. We loved the house and it provided with everything. There is even a water cooler. Ian, Omer and co have been amazing and a large part of our good experience in Carpici.
Kas is a small city in Turkey, still we were able to do something new everyday. On our 12-day stay at carpici, we stayed in home for 3 days, simply because we wanted to enjoy the amazing view a bit more and relax by the pool. My husband hated the hill so we got a taxi every night after dinner etc. I however, like a bit traning and think the hill is a very good way of ending the day.
I would love to go back someday!
Thanks Ian for everything!
Thank you for your kind feedback. I am really pleased you had a special time and we would love to see you back sometime.
The hill is quite steep, but as you have said taxis are very easy to find down in town if you are not inclined to walk back up.
Kas is built on a mountain side, which gives it its character. Our location is all about the views and combined with our commitment to provide high quality accommodation, we hope that everyone who stays with us has a special holiday experience.
Amazing accommodation and perfect for family with teenagers.
We were 2 adults with our 2 children, 19 and 16, and their 2 friends, so having 3 bathrooms and so much space was perfect. We loved the fact that we were so close to the town, giving us all independence, and as it is so safe, we were more than happy for the kids to return home at 3am, allowing us less energetic adults to come back before them.
There was nothing missing from the well stocked kitchen, and we appreciated the agents bringing water to us whenever we needed it, as well as the grocery pack waiting when we arrived.
As the apartment is so central, we could just decide daily what we fancied- lunch in town, then picking up meat etc from local shops, to have a BBQ at home, or to come back for a swim in the pool, aperitifs on the balcony, then back to town for dinner. So many great restaurants- we were spolit for choice.
We did a boat trip which was amazing- swimming with baby turtles, then BBQ fish and salad for lunch- highly recommended- and we were glad we had chosen one with fewer passengers- it was like a private trip !
We loved the Friday market- and had an extremely cheap and yummy lunch of savoury pancakes and freshly squeezed juice- under the olive trees, people watching.
Overall a great holiday with wonderful accommodation.
Great to hear you really appreciated the size, the location and the attention to detail of our apartment.
Kas is a special place for a holiday and it's great for all age groups.
We hope to see you back in Kas one day.
Well presented, beautiful location and lovely layout.
I wouldn't have changed the location for anything. Absolutely perfectly placed apartment - great for sunsets and SO glad for the pool! We had a great time, stayed around the pool a bit, did a few dives around Kas with Dragoman scuba diving company, enjoyed the cute turko/greek cafes and restaurants (all really friendly people in the town!) and actually really appreciated the hilly steps up to the accommodation - great exercise for the family at the end of the day! Also had a wonderful time exploring Kastellorizo, such a beautiful island with friendly locals and cute houses. Overall, very memorable 5 days in Kas.
We're really pleased you appreciated the apartment and location. Hopefully we will see you back in Kas sometime in the future, 5 days is just not enough.
Excelllent luxury apartment & breath taking views
Fantastic apartment everything was exactly as described. Very clean and very well equipped. One thing we particularly liked is that you had access directly to the pool from the main bedroom and also had a great balcony with fantastic views and dining facilities on the first floor. We usually eat out every night but the views were so fantastic we did not want to leave them and actually ate in half the time. Also found there was everything available to make this a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Omar and Hilary who looked after the property were always on hand if you had any questions or wanted advice or recommendations. Would definitely return to his beautiful apartment and would recommend to anyone.
Thank you for your review, it is very difficult when choosing accommodation from a web site, to quantify the quality of the accommodation. Your phrase "was exactly as described" is what we aim for.
We want those who stay with us to enjoy the apartment as we do and appreciate the attention to detail.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Amazing Apartment with Un-reviled Panoramic Views
Unlike the World of Hotels the reviews for Self Catering Apartments can be few and far between so it makes choosing (based upon recommendation) that so much more difficult, that is why I just had to review this amazing apartment.
Carpici is a Luxury Duplex Apartment with unrivalled Panoramic views from as far as 'Meis' to the end of the 'Pennisular' and the 'Marina', and of course the old 'Harbour in the middle, all of which could all be enjoyed from the many vantage points offered, such as the Bedroom Terrace, the amazing Balcony off the entertaining area, or just resting on the edge of the Infinity Pool.
But unlike so many which really upon a view Carpici has an Ace up its sleeve in the form of a Modern, Stylish Apartment, I have paid considerably more for a Bedroom and En-suite Bathroom at highly rated Hotels, but they have fallen far short of Carpici.
The apartment has 3 double bedrooms all with their own Hotel Style Bathrooms, and of course the Master Bedroom has everything you'd expect, en-suit, Sea-Views and its own Terrace.
There is also a Modern well equipped Kitchen which was so good we even ate in on a couple of evenings which is totally not like us, but we just wanted to enjoy a meal in the amazing Balcony overlooking KAS, a view I think you'd find hard to beat at any of the Restaurants in the town below.
One last thing which perhaps I should have mentioned earlier, is the professionalism shown not only by Ian (the owner) with his caring and efficient approach, but Hilary and Omer who live in Kas and manage the apartment in Ian's absence, but don't underestimate what these guys do, not only do they keep the Apartments , Pool and the Gardens looking amazing, but they offer what I would call a 'Concierge Service' in so much as Hilary and Omer helped with Transfers, Taxis, arranging special Birthday Cakes and Restaurant Bookings, truly amazing people and the Icing on what was already a really good Cake!
Ps. Like they say in the advert, don't tell everyone, because while Carpici becomes more and more successful, I still want to be able to visit myself!
Thank you for your kind words. We are lucky to have found Kas and to have had the opportunity to buy into somewhere special.
We have drawn on our experiences of holiday accommodation over the years and have tried to make sure our apartment is to a standard that we can enjoy and feel comfortable in and hopefully our guests appreciate the attention to detail.
Omer and Hillary are a great team and we are lucky to have them.
Special interest holidays:
Diving, Paragliding Sailing & Mountain Biking are the key sports based activities in Kas.
Kas is one of the Mediterranean's best diving locations, with crystal clear waters and a wide range of reefs to explore, both natural and man made. Local dive schools can be recommended. All boats are based in the harbor below the apartment.
Paragliding takes place from a purpose built launch site 20 minutes drive above Kas. Both individual tuition & tandem paragliding flights can be booked for those who want a "lifetime experience" to go home with.
The cost is around €90 for a tandem flight that lasts around 40 minutes & lands on the harbour side below. Clear skies & gentle mountain breezes provide near perfect conditions for most of the time from April until November.
Early season & later season holidays provide comfortable temperatures for exploring the wonderful local archeological sites or walking the Lycian way.
The new marina is home to 400+ boats, local Gullet hire can be arranged.
Little Pebble Beach, 10 minutes walk down the hill and the many bathing platforms that surround it, provide an excellent location for a quick dip or a long lazy day in the sun. Beds are provided free if you buy a drink or a snack. Outside of Kas you have Big Pebble Beach 2km east. Limonagzi is a beautiful cove to the east with a small restaurant, hammocks and sunbeds, accessible via a 20 min water taxi ride.

Dalaman is preferable and is a straight forward drive along the D400 coast road.

About Kas: Kas is a small friendly cosmopolitan holiday town that has grown up over the last 40 years from a quaint fishing village only accessible from the sea ,to a sophisticated seaside town which has retained its Turkish identity.
Located under the lower peaks of Mount Akdag (9,802ft), Kas is the jewel of the Turkish Riviera, a relaxed place, with lots of charm and character.
It provides an excellent base from which to discover the magnificent scenery and unique archaeological sites of the Lycian coast whether it’s the local Lycian tombs around Kas, the newly restored Roman Amphitheatre on the edge of town, or the Sunken city at Kekova, where you can look down on the ruins of a once great city beneath the sea. There is something for everyone.
Kas is however still a working town, with all the shops, boutiques, bussling markets and restaurants that cater for tourists and locals alike. The beaches in and around Kas tend to be pebbly rather than sandy and this combined with its historic lack of accessibility and the availability of flat land accessible to the sea, has meant that the mass tourism market has not taken hold, their are only a couple of medium sized hotels in Kas. A plush new marina and club has just opened on the edge of Kas, catering for everything from small day boats to Super Yachts. An English speaking doctor and an english speaking pharmacy is available anlong with, banks with cash point machines and a range of supermarkets. A large market (behind the bus station every Friday) is very much the highlight of the shopping week. Great for designer label sweat shirts and t shirts, football kits, leather goods, spices, fruit and vegetables.
English is widely spoken and understood.
