Charming boutique hotel with fabulous roof terrace for view of bay where breakfast is served and drinks available throughout the day till late at night. Staff are very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Very clean and pretty courtyard. Rooms vary in size according to price but are all in one of the 2 buildings around the courtyard. Hard to leave.

Even arriving late on an October night as we did, we were treated to the kind of hospitality that was to become the hallmark of our week's stay in this delightful bed and breakfast. Fairly centrally located, it is the perfect base to explore all the delights of Kalkan, from the beach clubs to the shops, restaurants and weekly market.... More

So having been to The White House in 2013 following a recommendation from neighbours,it took only 2 weeks of returning to the UK to book for another stay of ten nights in September 2014. That recent holiday has just come to an end and before leaving I booked to stay again in 2015. Kalkan is such a lovely place anyway... More

The White House and Courtyard hotel, located as they are genuinely in the heart of the old town and 5 minutes walk from the beach and harbour are truly unique in Kalkan. The Courtyard is an historic building worthy of its various conservation awards, sympathetically restored with the use of vernacular materials by local craftsmen whilst managing at the same... More

We returned 2 days ago from a 10 day stay in Kalkan. It was our first visit to Kalkan and the White House was just perfect. All the previous recent reviews are spot on and we thank Marion, Halil and Gurkan and all the other staff for making us feel so welcome.
