Great time in Kalkan staying at Cetin 1 apartment. Very nice apartment with a great pool. The agent Mustafa Simsek was very helpful and met us there at about 1am and nothing was too much trouble for him. He also came to see us off to make sure the taxi that he had arranged for us arrived in time. I would highly recommend Kalkan and the Cetin 1 apartment for anyone. My wife and I are thinking of booking again!
For the 2 of us the apartment was huge, swimming pool was great and probably larger than most. View was fantastic. No problem walking down to the centre of town but bit of a hike back but taxis are very cheap and only 10 lira back to the apartment.
Booked Cetin 1 apartment for our family of 4. The booking process was very easy. Mustafa the property agent was always quick to respond and answered all our questions accurately. We arrived late at night and Mustafa guided our taxi driver to the apartment which is sometimes difficult to find as the road is not named where he met us and took us through the basics.
The apartment was just as advertised. All the listed facilities were present and in working order. The property was clean and tidy and in good order except one shower head bracket was broken. No problem for us as there were 2 others to use. We did report it but it had not been repaired by the time we left. The apartment has a dishwasher but as anyone with one knows you do need a fair amount of cutlery, crockery, glassware etc. As there was just enough for 4 people we found we ended up not using it as you have to wash as you go but I guess it depends on how much self catering to do. The outside area was well maintained and the patio was washed down every day and pool were tended to. One day when the wind got up the maintenance guy came and lashed all the parasols and sunbeds down then returned to set everything up again once the weather settled down.
We really enjoyed the location. Set above the main town on the on the hillside just above the main road meant the shops and main street were a 10 minute walk (down hill) and a 15 minute walk back (uphill). The old town and port are only another 5 minutes walk away. The views from the infinity pool, patio and bedroom balconies were all really great even though there are telegraph wires overhead just on the far side of the road which can spoil some of your pictures.
There are more apartments in the building but as only 1 was occupied when we were there we had the pool area to ourselves and it really felt just like we had our own large villa.
All in all the property was just what we booked, we weren’t disappointed and would recommend it to anyone. That said there are steps up to the property and Kalkan has some steep roads and paths you need to be aware of. Mustafa was really helpful and always available on the phone. He told us where the office as in town but we didn’t need it. Even when I locked the keys in the apartment it was not trouble for him to sort the problem. We would defiantly return to Kalkan and book the apartment again. On our return home our deposit was refunded promptly which summed up the great holiday of which staying at Cetin 1 was a major contributor.
