I e-mailed Dr Can last year with a view to booking a holiday in September this year. He rang me to say his apartments were clean but "not posh" and that he could accommodate us in a 1-bedroom apartment for £27 per apartment/night and could arrange transfers for £70 [transfers were found to be reliable and took about 40 mins]. I really do not know how he can sustain such reasonable prices. He did not require a deposit and said we could pay in sterling upon arrival. Well we have just returned from our holiday and I can truthfully say I have never known hospitality like it, such a joy. Our apartment was basic but spacious, bright and clean, with aircon in living area and a small balcony. There was a fan in the bedroom. We also had a microwave, toaster, kettle, safety deposit box etc all included in the price. There was a bottle of water/carton milk in the fridge on arrival. The bathroom had a shower with constant hot water. The apartment was double-glazed and also at least one window in each room was fitted with a mosquito net so those windows could be left open if required. There is a medium sized swimming pool with plenty of sun loungers, cushions and parasols. Pool towels are provided too. Food/drink at the hotel was reasonably priced. Sometimes, if Dr Can was having a typically Turkish lunch at the hotel he would ask me to join him and I found the food delicious. My husband, who is a very fussy eater, was also catered for. The nearest supermarket is just two minutes away. Restaurants and beach are about ten minutes walk away and sunsets at Calis beach are amazing. One evening Dr Can [and his lovely wife Mary] took a small party of us to a restaurant in the mountains, stopping off to take photos and then on to an ice cream parlour, at a very reasonable cost. There were two Turkish evenings whilst we were there which were a lot of fun. The jewel in the crown is Dr Can. He loves people and his aim is to make sure his guests, many of which have been coming regularly for years, enjoy themselves. He goes out of his way to help wherever necessary and is very kind. We enjoyed eating at the hotel and also at Mangals [where the hot, Turkish bread is yummy] and Barbellas. We were both sad when our holiday was over and we had to leave.
