About Crystal Corley
My Husband and I have been coming to Kalkan since October 2007, when we booked an apartment on a whim and stumbled across this magic place! We instantly fell in love with Kalkan and everything it offered in a holiday...The fantastic restaurants with their high quality food and welcoming atmospheres, the great variety of shops, the stunning views from wherever you are in the village, the Turkish people who are so genuine and friendly and of course the warm climate :) It was the first place we had been on holiday where we said we could go back to and possibly buy a property.....and now our wish has become a reality!
Crystal Corley purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Crystal Corley chose Kalkan
The Apartment is perfectly located, along a flat road with a gentle slope down to the Town Centre/Harbour but still near good Restaurants, Supermarkets, Banks, Chemist etc if you don't wish to walk too far. The location is easy to find being beside such a known landmark as the Kalkan Regency Hotel and is also quiet as it is at the end of the road next to the Sea. As a family we like our space and this Apartment has plenty of space! especially on the top floor and as soon as we saw the breath taking views from the Roof Terrace and Lounge balcony, we could not refuse :)
What makes this Apartment unique

We loved it! The views are to die for! Fantastic place, fantastic location and fantastic holiday!
From drinks on the balcony overlooking Kalkan bay each evening before gently strolling into the town for an amazing meal to falling into bed with a view of Kalkan by night made for an unforgettable holiday! The property is in a superb location for getting everywhere with very little effort and as a family we would, without doubt, love to stay here again!
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the apartment and hope you will stay with us again soon
Great apartment in a fantastic town
Our fortnight here was a highly positive experience from start to finish, starting with our airport transfer driver happily waiting for us while we grabbed some essentials at the supermarket. The property manager, Samet, met us at the apartment when we arrived – lovely bloke, who'll happily help with any queries during your stay.
The apartment is excellent; pretty much as described. It's right above the communal pool, so when it's busy down there you do sometimes feel as though you're holding court over everyone when you're sitting out on the balcony – but the views from there and from the roof terrace are fantastic.
You soon get used to the walk down into town and back again (ask Samet to tell you the shortcut down to the harbour!). Kalkan has an exceptional buzz about it – vibrant and lively without being brash, and full of outstanding places to eat and drink. You'll have fun finding your favourites, but we're happy to recommend the food at Saki (a new restaurant in 2018), The Junction, DoyDoy and Korsan Meze. If you don't want to go into town, turn left at the end of the road and walk up the hill for 10 minutes to get to Yelken Cafe – well worth it – and Bar Agua.
We decided to do without a car (allow £110 for a return transfer from Dalaman) and didn't really miss it. We used the dolmus to get to Xanthos and to Patara for days out – ridiculously cheap and reliable.
It's been nine years since we were last in Kalkan. Hopefully, it won't be that long until we return – and when we do, we'd happily stay here.
Thank you so much for the glowing review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at La Mare and it was a great base for your holiday, we hope to welcome you back again soon 😃
Had a great time
The apartment was excellent and very clean.
The arrangements with Crystal were spot on and very helpful.
One our favourite things to do was sitting on the balcony with a drink admiring the view and watching the sun go down before going into Kalkan Old Town for dinner
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed staying at the apartment and look forward to having you stay again.
I’ve been coming to Kalkan for over 20 years and I must say this was one of the nicest stays. The appartment is lovely and spacious with a stunning view over the sea. Nice and easy to get to from town and a very quiet area to relax. I liked it so much I booked again for July. Thanks Crystal
Lovely apartment with a stunning view.
The apartment has a spacious lounge and kitchen area leading on to a balcony oveloooking the bay. The view is wonderful. It is well fitted out and very comfortable. The large double bedroom leads out on to the roof terrace and is light and airy. The smaller twin room is nicely decorated and has an adjoining bathroom.
It is an easy walk to the village from the apartment - it only takes 10 minutes. And is all downhill! It is also well placed if you want to 'stay high' and go towards Kalamar Bay instead of Kalkan village, with lots of good restaurants in that area too.
Everything you need for a perfect holiday
We had a superb holiday at La Mare in Kalkan. Our first time to Kalkan and we'd heard great things about it. It is a great destination for families with teenagers because there is so much to do - water-sports, boat trips, beach clubs, shopping, the bars and restaurants, the food! Oh my god the food!
La Mare apartment was perfect for us - very spacious inside and plenty of outside space. The air-con was very welcome as it was so hot but didn't take long for it to cool the place down. The pool was lovely with great views over the bay and no problems with overcrowding, found it very relaxing. Cleaners called in every day and we found Samet the manager to be very helpful - we got locked out one day and he was there with the keys within 10 minutes.
Crystal was very friendly and helpful when we made the booking. We would have no hesitation in booking this apartment again - definitely one of our most successful holidays.
There are many Beach Clubs all with Water Sport facilities, the nearest being a 10 min walk away, some can be reached by a free ferry from the Harbour including Kalamar, Mahal, Patara, Palm and Ibo. Kalkan has a pebble beach, which is just to side of the Harbour with plenty of sunlounges and umbrellas for hire. There are sandy beaches nearby, Patara with its endless white sands is a 20 min drive and Kapatus Bay, which can be reached by steep steps down the side of the cliff, is 10 mins drive.
Dalaman is the nearest Airport. Transfer time is approximately 90 mins. A £10 visa is required before passing through passport control on arrival and must be paid for online. Transfers and Car Hire and be booked through the Owner, however Car Hire is not essential.

Kalkan is full of fantastic restaurants, most of which you eat on the Roof tops over looking the Harbour and the quality of the food is second to none ranging from international cuisine to local traditional dishes. There are many shops, selling all manner of goods from local crafted ceramics, leather goods, art, fashion, rugs and carpets and excellent copies of designer goods! The currency is Turkish Lire and there are plenty of ATM's to access your cash, however most shops and restaurants take cards, so that you don't lose too much on exchange rates.
