What Oliver loves…
- You simply can’t beat those blue sea views, which you can see from the living space and terrace of the Seaview Residence, from sun rise to sun set those vistas just keep delivering
- Seaview Residence is just right for a small family or two couples sharing, the twin beds in the second bedroom could be pushed together to make a double, both are ensuite, and both have terrace access with sea views
- Dining alfresco with a sea view, enjoying traditional Turkish meze and freshly grilled fish and meat on the barbeque is what holiday memories are made of, and the six seater table means you can invite a couple of guests too
- We love that two super beach clubs are within walking distance of Seaview Residences, stroll down to the sea to discover welcoming, family friendly clubs, with sun bathing platforms, ladder entry into the sea, sun lounger bar service, and restaurants serving homecooked dishes

Vacation with a view when you holiday in the bijou Seaside Residence, nestled in beautiful Kalamar Bay, to the west of the much-coveted resort of Kalkan, on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. Seaview Residence is a modern two-ensuite bedroom apartment on the ground floor of a well-maintained small block of luxury holiday homes. The property can accommodate up to four guests, ideal for a small family or two couples sharing. The apartment benefits from simply stunning azure blue sea views, with an unbeatable vista that takes in the spectacular bay and looks out towards the inhabited, locally named Mouse and Snake islands. Whilst the Taurus mountains form a fabulous dramatic backdrop. Seaview Residence is complete with complimentary Wi-Fi and air conditioning, security cameras and an alarm system for your peace of mind. Set within a stone wall is a terrace populated with potted plants and your own private infinity swimming pool. The apartment is lovely and airy, with floor to ceiling windows that let in lots of natural light and cooling sea breezes. The interiors are contemporary, furnished with lots of light natural light wood, and decorated in a neutral palette of crisp, clean whites, shades of grey, and splashes of bright primary colours.
Enter the property to discover a holiday home of light and airy open plan living, with floor to ceiling sliding doors that open onto the pool terrace, and reward the guests with sweeping sea views. The seating area has a wrap-around white L-shaped sofa and wooden coffee table facing a flat-screen smart television that has already been pre-loaded with Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and Premier League football channels. The adjacent natural wood and white kitchen are fully equipped with everything you need to cater for your holiday, including an oven and hob, a family-size fridge freezer, a microwave, and that must-have morning coffee maker. A built-in bar table with high stools is the ideal spot for breakfast. The master bedroom is home to a large double bed, bedside tables, free-standing wardrobes, and an ensuite marble bathroom with a walk-in shower. Sliding doors open directly onto the pool terrace, perfect for starting the day with a refreshing dip. The second bedroom has two twin beds, a bedside table, a spacious wardrobe, an ensuite marble bathroom with a walk-in shower, and access to the terrace.
The paved terrace has a centre-piece ladder entry private infinity pool; imagine swimming as you admire the sea views. The pool is surrounded by four comfortable deep cushioned sun loungers, with shady parasols. A soft seating area with a sea view is ideal for enjoying a morning coffee or a sundowner cocktail. Dine alfresco at the six-seater table and chairs enjoy local delicacies freshly grilled on the portable barbeque, and toast to a memorable holiday as the sun sets over the horizon.
What you should know…
- Seaview Residence is part of a small block of holiday apartments, and there will be other holidaymakers above you. Don’t worry, the swimming pool is all yours.
- The property is located overlooking beautiful Kalamar Bay, which can be a bit of a steep walk down to the beach and back, and a good stroll into town, which may be difficult for those with mobility issues. There is a very reliable and inexpensive local taxi service to ferry you all over town and beyond.
- We would recommend hiring a car to see all the sights you would like to see, although this is by no means essential

Seaview Residence is nestled in beautiful Kalamar Bay, west of Kalkan's quaint harbour town, situated on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, the jewel of the Mediterranean Sea. The apartment enjoys a Taurus mountain backdrop, and a panoramic azure sea vista, that includes the locally named Mouse and Snake islands. The town of Kalkan is 125 kilometres from Dalaman Airport, a scenic one and a half hour journey through the Turkish countryside and Taurus mountains.
Kalkan was originally a Greek enclave called Kalamaki, and Ottoman and Hellenic influences can be found in the winding streets of the old harbour town. Walk through the cobbled streets full of traditional white houses, home to a reputed one hundred and fifty restaurants, cafes, and bars, souvenir shops, and designer brand stores stuffed with objects of desire. After dark dine in one of the famous rooftop restaurants with stunning harbour and sea views, sampling traditional Turkish delights and international cuisine. From the villa it is a short walk to local shops and restaurants of Kalamar, and a five minute drive into Kalkan where you can find supermarkets and banks, and a local Thursday market, that can cater for all the provisions you will need for a happy holiday. Within walking distance of the villa is the charming Kalamar and Kulube Beach Clubs, with restaurants, and full size swimming pool. Take a trip into town, and at the harbour get aboard one of the complimentary water taxis to one of the many exclusive beach clubs. The beach clubs all have with bathing platforms, sea views, sun lounger waiter service, restaurants, and bars, and some offer full size swimming pools, water sports, and spa services too. For the beach bunnies, Kalkan has its own pebble beach with organised sun loungers and brollies, easy access into the calm Mediterranean sea, and its own cute cafe. Travel further afield to the stunning Kaputas Beach set in a natural gorge, only two hundred steps down and two hundred steps back up, but well worth it for the scenery and the sea.
Take a trip to Patara, where you will find twenty kilometres of unspoilt golden sands, and a protected area for the hatching Caretta Caretta turtles. Patara also boasts an archaeological site over two thousand years old, with not just one but two ancient amphitheatres, not to mention the most stunning sunsets, best seen from the ever-changing sand dunes. No stay in Kalkan is complete without a boat trip from the harbour, whether it’s a shared one with family and friends, or you charter your own gulet, a day out at sea with your favourite captain and crew, is one that memories are made of. All aboard for a day of swimming and snorkelling in beautiful bays, enjoy a meal of local homecooked meze, take afternoon tea, and then sail back to harbour cocktail in hand to watch the sunset. For those with itchy feet the Lycian Way walking trail cuts through Kalkan. Follow in the footsteps of thousands of years of history, as you trek the trail taking you through major archaeological sites, local villages, dramatic coastlines, and the areas’ flora and fauna.
Take a short journey to the town of Kinik, where you can step back in time to the Lycian city of Xanthos. Follow the D400 to Fethiye, and discover the historical sites of Patara, Letoon, Tlos, Sidyma, and Pinara, where you can see the ancient ruins, amphitheatres and temples with Lycian, Greek, Roman, and Byzantine influences. The harbour town of Fethiye is also full of ancient sites worth seeing, as well as a foodie-heaven fish market, and home to some seriously good designer labels and fabulous jewellery shopping. Whilst the nearer town of Kas is just twenty-five kilometres in the other direction, and worth the journey alone along one of the world’s most stunning and dramatic coastlines. Walk through the harbour to the cobbled streets full of Ottoman architecture and overhanging balconies festooned with pastel coloured bougainvillaea, barter for unique handmade and antique goods in its many shops, and make memories dining in one of the traditional restaurants serving authentic Turkish cuisine with mesmerising sea views. And if you’re feeling really intercontinental, hop on the twenty-minute ferry from Kas to the Greek island of Meis, where you can swim in the mystical Blue Cave and dine by candlelight at the water’s edge.
Kalamar Beach Club
Kalkan has become boutique resorts, with cobbled streets and converted Greek houses, which belonged to the Greek merchants before the exchange of population in the 1920’s. Once quiet fishing harbours these days you are more likely to see traditional wooden gulets taking tourists to soak up rays on the sparkling turquoise Mediterranean. A boat trip is a must do, from the boat you can snorkel and usually a delicious lunch is prepared on board. Keen walkers should check out the Lycian way for designated walking paths in the area.
You cannot come to this area without spending some time exploring the many Lycian sights, such as Xanthos, Patara, Myra or the sunken city of Kekova.
Patara is said to be where democracy started (they excavated stone voting block) and is also said to be the birthplace of St Nicholas, who became bishop at nearby Myra. The ruins here include an ancient theatre, city walls, government build and agora. The lighthouse on the site is said to be the earliest of its kind. Visit Patara in the late afternoon and finish the trip with a drink on the sandy beach watching the amazing sunset.
The Salikent Gorge is a great place to visit, especially if you want to cool off in the fresh waters whilst walking up the gorge. For the more energetic there are rafts and rings to ride the flowing waters. Further down you can enjoy a day canoeing toward the beach.
Islamlar sits 8 km above Kalkan. Once the place Kalkan folk went to cool off at one of the trout farms built to make use of the mountain’s springs. Today Islamlar houses many a villa, enjoyed by Istanbul Turks who prefer a holiday in slightly cooler and cleaner air. Here the locals grow grapes and pomegranates, but you’ll mainly see the men sat gossiping next to the local teahouse. The trout farms remain a place to come for a wonderful fresh meal, or a breakfast consisting of fresh local fare. The rocket will be the freshest & most tasty you’ve ever had; and the fresh chips cooked in olive oil take some beating.
By night both Kalkan and Kas come alive. Kas has more of a bohemian feel, people ambling through the cobbled streets, passing the ancient tomb in the street, haggling for textiles, carpets and other goodies, maybe stopping for the traditional Turkish ‘maras’ ice cream, a tulip-shaped glass of tea or a wonderful kebab in the shadow of the mosque. Most of the villas in Kas are just out of town on the Cukurbag Peninsula. A reasonable (5km) taxi or Dolmus (local bus) ride into town. Be sure to try the Piyaz, a white bean salad with tahini sauce.
Travelling along the coast, towards Kalkan you pass the modern marina, the children’s beach park (run by the local hotel school) and halfway to Kalkan the stunning Kaputas Beach, cut in a gorge with all different shades of turquoise in the sea.
Kalkan is a more sophisticated resort, with the villas built onto the mountainside. Evening are spent enjoying the rooftop restaurants, perched on the top of the old ‘konak’ houses. Then wandering to a seaside bar for a cocktail, after shopping for glass lanterns, Iznik pottery, handbags or pestemel towel. Do visit the ‘pastane’, local patisseries which do the most delicious morning pastries and you must try the ‘Gozleme’ pancakes at the Thursday market.
Other things to do in the area include scuba diving as the visibility is excellent, paragliding, horseriding on Patara Beach or kayaking around the sunken ruins at Kekova.
Kalkan is the perfect holiday hot spot for kids of all ages. Starting with the villa’s private pool as there’s no set hours, your children can swim and splash all day. For the cooler evenings, the villa has a smart television, pre-loaded with Netflix, Prime, Disney +, and Premier League football channels, something for children of all ages.
Within walking distance is the family-friendly Kalamar and Kulube Beach Clubs with shallow entry warm sea, bathing platforms, swimming pool, and lots of water sports to keep them amused all day. Across the harbour is Zest Beach Club, in a stunning setting with huge infinity and kid’s swimming pools, and a wood-fired pizza restaurant, makes it great place to take your children. For the more sophisticated or older children Indigo Beach Club with bathing platforms and step entry into the sea is ideal, whilst the laid-back cool Palm Beach is smaller and quieter. In the pretty town of Kalkan you will find an original authentic Turkish village full of winding streets of white-washed houses, family-friendly restaurants and cafes, and shops galore selling souvenirs. For your older daredevils, Aristos Water Sports will take them on exhilarating sea rides, tandem parasailing, jet skis, and racing speed boats. For the not so adventurous Kalkan has its own public pebble beach, with sunbeds and brollies, safe entry into the calm sea and a rather good cafe. A trip to Kalkan isn’t complete without a family day at sea on one of the traditional gulets that leave the harbour daily. Stopover in beautiful bays, mud bath inlets, swim and snorkel in the warm waters of the Turquoise Coast, if you are lucky, you may see a turtle or two, and if you are really lucky the odd dolphin might pop his fin up too. Enjoy the magnificent meze lunch made on board with freshly caught fish, before an afternoon tea of fresh fruit and cake, then sail home drinks in hand as the sun sets. Whilst you are in town book a day trip for all the family. Enjoy an adventurous jeep safari through the local villages, see the natural flora and fauna, and ride the famous Patara sand dunes.
Go further afield to Sakilkent Gorge, where you can walk through a flowing river to a magnificent waterfall. Just around the bend is the baby sister waterfall of Gizlikent, ramble down a stepped wood to cool waters and refreshing natural shower in the sunshine. Take a trip to Kekova and see a sunken city through a glass-bottomed boat. On the way to Fethiye stop off at the ghost town of Kaya, where you can explore the ruins of an abandoned Greek town with original houses, churches and chapels. The town of Olu Deniz offers the best of both worlds, with stunning sandy beaches with easy entry shallow waters, and a magnificent one thousand seven hundred metre cable car ride up to the top of Mount Babadag, from where you can tandem paraglide and land back where you started. A short boat taxi journey from Olu Deniz will take you to Butterfly Valley, where your children can discover over eighty species of beautiful butterflies in nature’s garden.
