100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The view over Kalkan Bay is spectacular. The website offers a slightly misleading description - the 2 bedrooms on the uppermost floor is a box room with 2 twin beds and the lounge through which you access the wetroom with a single Z bed. Couldn’t sleep 8. Antalya airport is not 2 hours away its 241km and takes over 3.75 hours on a good day. It is not brand new as stated as the villa is looking tired, in need of modernisation and TLC (internal fittings are corroded, sun bed mattresses are stained and worn etc). There are no instructions on how to use the equipment provided and as we didn't see the manager until we emailed about a problem, there was no way of knowing how to use them. Washing machine wouldn't fully work (wash no spin), the microwave is broken and only 2 plates on the stove work. The TV is old and to play a DVD you have to unplug the skart and plug in the DVD connection. There are no instructions on how to receive satellite (just a CNN channel the others not being part of the package) and it took us 2 days to work out how to view the news. Anyone slightly non techie would have struggled. TV is old model not geared for the modern wide screen relays so you loose the sides – a bit of a problem when it’s a studio and the presenter disappears! The bedroom TV’s do work once you figure how to start them but only show local TV. We found that many of the lights around the house need new bulbs, the remotes needed new batteries (£12 worth had to be bought in the town) and you have to be aware that the multi-plug cords snake everywhere. The pool was well maintained. The site should warn people of the steep roads to traverse. Going down, OK back up strenuous.
What a beautiful apartment. Very well looked after and with plenty of amenities. The view was amazing, by day and by night. Chilling by the pool looking over the bay was amazing. The owners local agent Hamza was a very happy and helpful person. Nothing was too much for him. We spent the week and enjoyed every minute. I would suggest if you have children that you consider car hire as it is only a few minutes from the beach clubs, but it is in a valley and quite a steep walk back. EXCELLENT apartment. The owner was very helpful when contacting with questions. I would defiantly go back and it was worth the money I paid for the week. Very good value for money.
