Apartment Amber is a luxury two bedroom duplex penthouse apartment set in the exclusive holiday destination of Kalkan. With its breathtaking views, infinity pool & rooftop terrace this apartment is the perfect place from which to experience the delights that Kalkan has to offer. On the first floor of the apartment you will find an open plan kitchen lounge and a spacious twin bedroom. Both rooms benefit from the apartment’s spectacular views of Kalkan. Each room has access to the first floor balcony where the view can be enjoyed both day & night. The first floor also boasts a beautifully tiled shower room & storage cupboard. On the top floor of the Apartment there is a king size bedroom with en-suite bathroom including large bath with shower and folding shower screen. The most amazing views of Kalkan village & harbour are once again showcased from both rooms and the adjacent patio & roof top terrace. Apartment Amber is one of four apartments sharing the outside area including infinity pool & pergola.
Historical sites of interest are also accessible from Kalkan you can visit the ruined city of Tlos and the island of Kekova. Kalkan is also convenient for trips to the ruins of Xanthos and Letoon. Kalkan is one of the top locations for scuba diving on the Turkish coast, you can also enjoy river canoeing at the Xanthos river and river tubing at the Saklikent Gorge.
Every Thursday Kalkan hosts an open air market, local farmers sell fresh produce and many 'genuine fakes' are on sale! It's a good place to barter and grab a bargain.
Although this was our second trip to Kalkan, it was the first time we'd stayed at Amber Apartment. And what a beautiful apartment it is! Set slightly up the hill overlooking the bay, you couldn't wish for a more beautiful location. The view looks amazing in the photos but is even more stunning in real life. You could sit and stare at that view all day long.
The apartment itself is very tastefully decorated and well kitted out. Even down to the provision of beach towels, which is great when you’re trying to save space in your suitcase. For anyone staying for two weeks, or with young children, the use of a washing machine was also a real bonus. The apartment has two bathrooms and two terraces – one with a dining area and another on the top floor with sunbeds and terrace furniture. We spent many an occasion having pre-dinner drinks up there before going out for the evening.
The apartment also has an infinity pool which again, is beautiful, and although is shared with 3 other apartments, we always seemed to have the pool area to ourselves every time we went down there. There are plenty of sunbeds and the outside area is well maintained by Zeki, the local groundsman/handyman.
If you haven’t been to Kalkan before, then it truly is worth a visit. You’re spoilt for choice with around 200 restaurants, our favourites being Kaya (for the Turkish mezze), and Gironda (for the best stuffed fillet of lamb known to man!).
Chris who owns Amber Apartment was extremely helpful in organising our booking and transfers – nothing was too much trouble.
I would highly recommend Amber to anyone visiting Kalkan – a great spot for visiting the local area or if you simply want a chilled out holiday by the pool, then Amber can offer you both.
Thanks Chris for a great stay – I’m sure we’ll be back very soon!
Beautiful apartment! The views are incredible, especially from the rooftop terrace. The apartment is modern, large and clean. The infinity pool and outside area also wonderful and only shared with 3 other apartments. This was our first time in kalkan and we loved it. The apartment is located a short 5 minute walk to the start of the restaurants/ shops. The walk back up is steep so we preferred getting a taxi back which cost ~£2- £2.50 and the location would not be suitable for anyone who isn't particularly mobile.
Although we've not stayed anywhere else in kalkan, this has got to be one of best places to stay! Kalkan itself is lovely- so many great restaurants, shops, bars and things to do, and so reasonably priced. We would love to return and would highly recommend this apartment! You'll love it!
A 2 week stay in Amber was highly anticipated and was better than our expectations. Great property and extremely helpful owner. Everything thought of to make this a fantastic relaxing holiday.
We have just booked our fourth consecutive stay at Apartment Amber so thought it was time we left a review! You cannot beat the view that greets you as you walk through the door of the apartment, every room and every balcony, and every poolside lounger has the most amazing view of Kalkan, of which we never tire.
The apartment is always immaculate on our arrival and Chris and Michelle have done a superb job of equipping the accommodation with everything you could reasonably want. Luxury is the word, with marble floors and floor to ceiling windows in every room. Chris has always helped us, more than he needed to, with hire cars, restaurant recommendations etc. He can even advise you about flights and airport car parking. All our bookings have run perfectly.
My biggest recommendation is to let Chris help you organise a hire car from the airport. The cost is not much more than taxi transfers each way and the flexibility a car gives you while you are in Kalkan is great. We usually walk to the town on an evening and get a taxi back (no more than 10 lira (£2.50!!)) but use the hire car for supermarket trips, trips to the beach or any day trips. Don't be put off by the hill, if you are only reasonably fit you can walk it, (my wife walks to town on a night in reasonable heels!) and if not, taxis are the answer.
Another must is a boat trip. You can hire your own private gulet from 450 lira and feel like a millionaire for the day. We have used Captain Adil on Pina X1 more than once, but I know other boats are good too. You spend the day swimming off the boat and sunbathing, in between a constant stream of excellent fresh food prepared by the captain and his mate.
You can't really go wrong with any of the restaurants in the town, we have never had a bad meal yet, and our passion is good food. All the Kalkan people delight in being your host and make us very welcome. Our treat night though is usually Aubergine and another favourite for a drink or dessert is Cafe del Mar, a small place up one of the side streets, it does the best Baklava in Kalkan for less than all the restaurants.
Our flights are booked for next year and we can't wait to return - just don't tell everyone how good it is!!
This is our second stay at Amber Apartment and as usual it was perfect.It has everything you need for an ideal holiday and the view from the apartment is probably the best in Kalkan.
The arrangements including airport transfers and welfare during our stay was faultless and the owner clearly cares about his guests.
10 days in Kalkan was never enough. Not enough time to try half the amazing roof top restaurants with their delicious food, not enough time to relax at all the beach clubs and boat trips swimming with turtles and certainly never enough time to explore the stunning coastline. Amber apartment complete with a pool with a view to die for was perfect for our holiday requirements. They seemed to have thought of everything from a water cooler to pool towels. The world is so large with so many places to explore, but this is a corner we'd certainly return to.
Kalkan is the ideal holiday destination for the discerning traveller providing the perfect combination of traditional Turkey & cosmopolitan chic. It offers amazing views, perfect sunsets, stylish bars & charming roof top restaurants. As you meander through the cobbled streets you will be welcomed (not hassled) by the locals & invited to sample the many & varied restaurants on offer. Alternatively you can spend your time browsing the diverse range of shops including gifts, clothes & unique jewellery. Kalkan's harbour by night is a bustling area of stylish restaurants and bars affording the opportunity for a relaxing cocktail or a more lively evening if required. By day it offers gulet cruises, speed boat rental and water taxis to the near by beach clubs. Cut into the hillside these clubs provide areas to soak up the sun, relax over lunch & enjoy the sea. Kalkan itself offers a blue flag pebble beach and is well positioned to access the picturesque beaches of Patara & Kaputas.
