Apartment with fabulous shared pool, in a great location close to the centre of Kalkan and all amenities.
We are all about service & value for money. You might get cheaper accommodation in Kalkan, but you won't get better value or better service!
Dusk apartment is on the ground floor of a small block of five apartments, sharing a an amazing pool (which is one of the largest in Kalkan, and never crowded).
It's a unique, highly flexible space that can accommodate up to five people. with a main double bedroom, a spacious open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area (which has a large single sofa-bed) , a "spare" room which doubles as either a lounge or second double bedroom, and a large private outside space with additional dining table and chairs, sunbeds, parasol, bench seat and a small barbeque.
Guest have exclusive use of the whole of Dusk apartment and its private patio area throughout their stay.
Guests are also are entitled to use the shared swimming pool and all communal areas of the site, including poolside sunbeds and parasols, seating and tables.
The only off-limits areas are other people's apartments (unless invited, obviously) and the staff-only electrical/storage cupboard and pool equipment hatches .
Interaction with guests
We live in Kalkan and can easily be contacted, but we do not actually live on site.... these are self-catering apartments.
We do try to "meet and greet" guests but if this is not possible, we provide full instructions on how to gain access.
Basically... you get the keys and please yourselves! Treat it like your home for the duration. There is a supermarket virtually next door and more than enough restaurants and bars....
Other things to note
See our kalkansecrets or nurapartmentskalkan website for more details and information on all our apartments.
Have respect for other holidaymakers... it is their holiday as much as yours. That means... no antisocial behaviour; late night gatherings or loud music when other people might be trying to sleep!
Apart from the above...we are pretty relaxed! You need to observe the pool rules displayed on a notice board by the pool. It's all basic common sense.
No smoking is allowed inside buildings. (that's the law in Turkey). If you do want to smoke outside, please use ashtrays and dispose of cigarette ends thoughtfully.
No pets are allowed inside the apartments.

Fiona and I came to Kalkan on honeymoon in 2004; we loved the place so much we came back the next year and bought an apartment!
We now own five of the six apartments in the block and have been renting them out to holidaymakers very successfully under the business name Kalkan Secrets; we use our own website and various other proprietary sites that promote self-catering holidays. You know - the usual suspects!
I thought we should give AirBnB a try as well, in order to fill some of the gaps that occur between larger bookings. We initially listed our "Moonlight" studio and our "Dusk" ground floor apartment and are now adding the others.
Fiona and I now live in Kalkan part of the year - but we don't actually live on-site at the apartments. In 2013, we were living in what is now "Dusk" apartment, but we moved off-site in 2014, and our view is that guests should be left to cater for themselves. We (or our manager Howard) generally visit the apartments briefly each day and we are more than happy to help guests with recommendations for restaurants, excursions, beach clubs, boat trips etc.
We supply an information pack by email and there's a hard copy in the accommodation too.
I am a musician (guitarist) and play regularly in one of the bars in the town with a Turkish singer. I also travel back to the UK on a regular basis to do my "day job" of financial adviser. Fiona tends to run the apartment business... attending to housekeeping , organising cleaners, liaising with guests etc. We are also extending the rental management service to other owners who don't have the time or inclination to manage it for themselves
With all that going on we don't have much spare time but when we do, we like simple things... a boat trip around the bay; maybe a barbeque; reading, relaxing by the pool at our villa or catching up on some old TV series that we never had time to watch first time around...like Dexter, Breaking Bad... and most of all just listening to music - the universal language!
