Overview

There is something about Kalkan which grabs you on your first visit, you’ll no doubt find yourself, as most people do, booking a return trip. We fell in love with one area in particular, Kisla. Due to its location away from the centre of Kalkan, the area is quiet and secluded, perfect for total relaxation.

A stay at Moondarra Apartment adds a luxury feel to the flexibility of your self catering holiday by offering

1. Private pool and terrace area for your exclusive use
2. Twice weekly linen change and cleaning service
3. Highest quality fittings and furnishings
4. Stunning sea and mountain views

The luxurious apartment boasts spectacular views across Kalkan Bay to the mountains opposite and its position affords some of the best sunsets on offer. Perfect for watching the sun go down from the pool terrace on a balmy summers evening with a glass of your favourite tipple. Indeed, "Moondarra" is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning "dusk".

The contemporary accommodation is furnished to a high standard with ample wardrobe space, fully equipped kitchen and a spacious, contemporary bathroom, whilst outside there is a generous terrace area with sunloungers, dining table and barbeque.

The apartment is cleaned with fresh linen and towels supplied twice weekly. We also provide you with a Welcome Pack of necessities to get you under way.

Situated a mere 100 metres from the local beach club, easy access can be gained to the sea, whilst Kalkan town centre which has an extensive range of restaurants, bars and shops is approximately 2km from the apartment. This distance is walkable (being less mountainous than some areas of Kalkan) but there is a boat service which runs from the beach club. In addition, ample taxis are available.. Kisla itself has a small general store offering basic provisions and a cafe in addition to the beach club serve basic meals. For a more substantial dining experience, excellent restaurants at the Fidanka Hotel and Villa Mahal are just a short stroll from the apartment.

Moondarra apartment is an entirely self-contained annexe to our villa which means we can offer guests exclusive use of the pool and surrounding terrace, so you can relax without interruption. In addition, a warm, personal welcome whatever time of day you arrive is guaranteed and unlimited local information is available to make your holiday extra special.

Apartment Moondarra is the ideal base for your holiday in Kalkan, providing everything that discerning guests would expect of a luxury holiday home.



Kalkan – Jewel of the Turquoise Coast
Kalkan’s appeal is that it offers far more than the average sun and sea holiday. If you prefer getting away from the major tourist crowds, then youll appreciate the quiet ambiance of Kalkan. Comparatively untouched by mass development, this quaint resort lies in a lovely bay and is a fascinating fusion of the old and new. The English press have compared Kalkan to the Italian Riviera, with its whitewashed buildings that abound with bougainvillea lining narrow streets that meander down towards the harbour.

During the day, you can stroll the stone streets exploring the many and varied shops selling antiques, crafts, jewellery, carpets and clothing or just wander to any of the busy cafes and bars for a refreshing chilled beer.

For Beach Lovers, there are numerous beach clubs around Kalkan bay, most offering light snacks and refreshments in addition to the usual sunlounger hire. Many of these can be accessed by a free boat service from the harbour. Kalkan itself has a modest pebbled beach next to the harbour.

At night Kalkan adopts another persona, as you ramble through the streets you hear the sound of jazz mixed in with traditional Turkish music. The smells from the many restaurants entice your senses and with a choice of more than 100 you need never eat in the same place twice. The al-fresco dining experience is enhanced by views of the sea, sky and twinkling lights of the town from the many rooftop establishments . Unlike other coastal resorts, you will not be exposed to a boisterous night scene in Kalkan as the nightlife here is fun and relaxed, yet low-key. Nor will you find yourself being hassled by restaurateurs or shop vendors. So sit back and enjoy the warmth of the renowned Turkish hospitality.

With all that it has to offer, it is no surprise that Kalkan has a growing number of perennial visitors who say the town is the only holiday destination they would choose to visit repeatedly.


Relax or explore? The choice is yours!
You may decide to spend your days in Kalkan doing nothing more than relaxing by the pool, with the odd trip into town for a spot of shopping. If this is the case, then a car is not essential. However, there is no doubt that hiring a vehicle for a day or two will allow you to make the most of this fascinating area by exploring further afield.

For those craving the feel of sand between their toes, a visit to Patara Beach is a must. Its eighteen kilometres of soft white sand, in recent years won a "best beach in the world" survey in the Sunday Times. Patara can be accessed by car or dolmus (local bus service) and is approximately 25 minutes away. Alternatively try a dip in the turquoise blue waters at Kaputas beach a short 10 minute drive from the apartment.

One of the best ways of getting to know Kalkan and surrounding area is to take a boat trip. Small and medium size boats leave Kalkan harbour at about 10.00 each morning and return in the late afternoon and most Captains will include a light lunch on board with drinks available from the bar. The trip will also incorporate plenty of chances for swimming at various stops throughout the day. Moonlight cruises can also be arranged and are especially romantic.

If you have a keen interest in history then you will find plenty to occupy you in this area which has a wealth of ancient sites to visit. The site of the old Roman town at Patara with its remarkably well preserved bath houses, ampthitheatre, stoa and lighthouse is truly fascinating. Also worth a visit are sites at Letoon, Xanthos and Tlos to name but a few.

Alternatively, for more energetic holidaymakers, walking in the cool mountains, horse riding, having a go at paragliding or sampling the various water sports on offer are all possibilities.

If you prefer to let someone else do the driving for you, then why not take advantage of the range of day trips on offer through local tour companies.

Kalkan was wonderful, the lovely apartment and stunning views were icing on the cake. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed and more. Fiona and Paul have succeeded in creating an escape from the realities of the real world that leave you yearning for more!

The apartment is absolutely fantastic and we cant say enough to express how much we enjoyed the whole holiday. The location of the apartment is amazing with fantastic views across the sea and of Kalkan. Very peaceful and away from the bustle of the main town. We made a great deal of use of the pool which was large enough to get some lengths in or just for a cool off. It felt like real luxury not having to share it with anyone else. We walked into the center of the town of Kalkan on most occasions which took around 20 mins, and apart from a few steep hills, it was very much worth it for the views from the top. It would probably take longer to walk having stopped to look so many times! However if you do find it difficult, it is easy to get a taxi and only takes 5 minutes if not a bit less. The apartment itself is very well equipped and Paul and Fiona had provided a basic starter pack of food and water as we had arrived late in the night. We also managed to cook at the apartment a few nights and even made use of the barbeque which was also provided by Paul and Fiona. Food and supplies are easy to get hold of with a small shop 5 mins walk from the apartment. The town has quite a few places to get food supplies and very good value for money too. We would highly recommend getting fresh fruit and veg from the Thursday market and make use of the butchers - very cheap and good quality meat for the barbeque! There are a couple of restaurants near to the apartment if you fancy a change from the town. The holiday was made extra special for us as Paul and Fiona made us feel very welcome and we very much view them as friends now. The place will always hold a special place in our hearts as we got engaged here while on our holiday and we will definitely make plans to return.

Have been back a week now after staying at Moondarra apartment for just under two weeks.I just wanted to thank the owners,Paul and Fiona, for making the holiday such a great one. The villa itself is lovely, overlooking the bay of Kalkan.The bedroom was spacious with one of our friends staying on the sofa bed in the lounge which they found more than comfortable! You have sole access to the villas pool so that made it even a more relaxing stay and with the owners coming into clean every morning you didnt have to worry about anything.The owners are pretty flexible as well, as we didnt get up most days until after midday!If we needed any advice, then they were both on hand to sort anything out, which came in handy! Although the villa is outside the main town of Kalkan a short boat trip (5-10 minutes) takes you there in no time.I would recommend hiring a car/taxi to travel further afield or to get into Kalkan in a hurry if you cant wait for the boat as it doesnt run after 7pm. Theres nothing else to say and i mean that in a positive way! Will definately be coming back here next year to visit Kalkan!

Had a wonderful week away. Paul and Fiona were very welcoming, and were able to offer advice whenever we asked. Would recommend hiring a car to see some of the sites, as there are a few hills, but the local (free boat) to kalkan is ideal way to visit the town cheaply, and the food in the restaurants is gorgeous! Very relaxing setting, ideal place to get away and chill, or a base to explore what Turkey has to offer. Thanks for your hospitality! :)

This place was awesome - i booked it for my honeymoon, and everything about it was absolutely perfect. The hosts - Fiona and Paul - were lovely and helped us with all the information we needed as well as booking taxis/rental cars. Would definitely come back to Kalkan - the place is beautiful, the facilities were awesome. Loved it. Thank You

The Moondarra Villa is situated on the outskirts of Kalkan, a small town predominantly comprising an excellent selec tion of restaurants. It is something of an ideal to have a completely self-contained apartment with exclusive use of the infinity swimming pool, beneath the accommodation of the owners, as they were thus readily to hand should we have needed them. The furnishings and equipment of the apartment are so well thought out however, that, in practice, this was not necessary, though Fiona and Paul are very welcoming and informative. Everything about the location and facilities provided us with a lovely holiday - one of our best.

What can we say? Superb! Fiona and Paul are the most superb hosts and have created a little corner of paradise where guests can relax and enjoy the best of everything. The accomodation has been constructed to the highest of standards with attention to detail being central to the whole experience. The villa has fantastic views over the bay and the pool allows hours of relaxtion and enjoyment. Fiona and Paul are the most genuine and fantastic people who we met as guests yet left as friends. We would reccomend staying here to anybody who wants to enjoy a superb location with high standards and to fully recharge from the day to day stresses of life! We will be back! Thank you for everything Paul and David

We have recently returned home from a wonderful week in this fabulous apartment. The apartment is absolutely perfect for a relaxing, get-away-from-it-all holiday. The owners are perfect hosts who have provided everything you can possibly need and who thoughtfully ensure that the Apartment is cleaned every day. We would have no hesitation in staying here again and hope that we do get to come back soon.
We've had alovely week. Thanks for accommodation. See you next year hopefully. Richard, Maggie, Mandy and Harry - October 2007
