This is a spacious 2 bedroom, fully air-conditioned, duplex apartment at the very popular Sunset Beach Club at Calis Beach. Ideal for families or couples seeking a self-catering beach holiday. The added bonus is that no car hire is needed when staying here as it is easy to get about on foot or by dolmus.
It offers great flexibility as it has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus with a double sofa bed in the lounge means it can comfortably sleep up to 5 people.
As this is a duplex apartment, its layout is designed over 2 floors which offers more privacy than some other apartments. The master bedroom is upstairs with the bonus of its own small private terrace and en-suite bathroom. The twin bedroom and 2nd bathroom are downstairs. This makes it great for families or 2 couples sharing the apartment as the sleeping arrangements are on 2 floors (with a bathroom for each bedroom).
The lounge features a basic satellite TV system and DVD player plus an I-Pod speaker. Complex Wi-Fi is available (with your own laptop), small charges may apply. The kitchen features oven/ hob, microwave, dishwasher and large fridge/ freezer. There is a really nice balcony which has a great built in BBQ, an outdoor table, chairs and parasol, and enjoys lovely views of one of the swimming pools.
The apartment is in a lovely position on the complex, set about half way down the complex which means you are slightly away from the main reception/ entrance, busy front swimming pool, main bar and restaurant.
The Sunset Beach Club has everything you could be looking for whilst on holiday. As well as 5 outdoor pools, 3 kids splash pools, there is a sauna, hamman (Turkish bath) and treatments available in the wellness centre (local charges apply). There is even an on-site shop, a poolside bar and lovely restaurant/ snack bar.
Don't just take our word for it, please read our fantastic REVIEWS and FEEDBACK from our happy guests further down this advert.
The Sunset Beach Club enjoys an enviable beachfront location which means you can enjoy both beach and pool fun when staying here. Being so close to the beach means that you can easily pop back to the apartment very quickly if you need anything.
When you are ready for some activities, there are lots of watersports available just a few minutes walk away at the nearby Fethiye Surf Club. There are several nice, local restaurants close to the Sunset Beach club and a short 10 minute stroll brings you onto the main Calis Beach promenade with its laid-back bars and many restaurants. The surrounding area of Fethiye, Hisaronu and Olu Deniz can all be reached by local public bus transport system (called the 'dolmus') which means that NO CAR HIRE is required when staying here. The dolmus now stops close to the complex so it is very easy to get around the local area.
We also rent 2 other properties at Sunset Beach (a 2 and 3 bedroom apartment) so are good options if 2 families or couples are travelling together but want separate accommodation, or if this apartment is already booked for your dates. Please ask for details and availability. We may have access to other apartments on this complex if these are booked (through the property manager in Turkey). Please contact us with your holiday dates and we can try to help you find alternative accommodation.

This apartment is great for a self-catering holiday and benefits from air-conditioning throughout (an absolute MUST in Turkey during the summer months). With a double and twin bedroom, it is perfect for 1 or 2 couples, or a family of up to 5 (when using the sofa bed in the lounge and/or a travel cot). The sofa bed in the lounge converts into a good size double bed.
It is also good choice for families with younger children as it is situated slightly set back from the main communal areas which are at the front of the complex (such as the main bar and restaurant) so tends to be a little quieter at night time. We can arrange cot and highchair hire if travelling with a baby/ young child. Please ask for details.
The lounge patio doors open out onto the fantastic balcony which has lovely views of the swimming pool and towards the sea. As this is a first floor apartment, there is no chance of small children escaping through the patio doors and out onto the swimming pool area. The balcony features a BBQ, sun umbrella and outdoor dining table and 6 chairs (this is the dining table referred to in the above facilities section). This is a perfect spot for an al-fresco breakfast, lunch, an evening BBQ or a relaxing glass of chilled wine at the end of the day. There are 6 sun loungers with mattresses which also belong to this apartment.
The open plan lounge/ kitchen area features a sofa bed, coffee table plus a TV and DVD player so please bring your favourite films/ kids programmes with you to watch during your holiday. There is a basic satellite system with some English, European and Turkish channels. The apartment also has an I-Pod docking station. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave, oven, hob, large fridge freezer as well as all the essential cutlery, crockery, pots and pans for a self-catering holiday. There is also a safe in the apartment.
Wi-fi internet access is available (with your own laptop). Small charge may apply. Alternatively many nearby bars and restaurants such as Guven's have internet access available to use free of charge if you are buying a drink or a meal.
For your convenience there are 2 bathrooms in this apartment. On the 1st floor, next to the twin bedroom, there is a bathroom with wc, basin and shower. Upstairs there is an en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom with wc, shower, basin and washing machine (it is very common for this to be plumbed in the bathroom in Turkey). There is a clothes airer and ironing board provided.
The master bedroom has the added benefit of a private terrace with 2 rattan chairs and a table so is the perfect spot to relax, read your book and enjoy a morning coffee. This room has a double bed, 2 bedside cabinets (with drawers), large drawers and hairdryer. There is a double wardrobe with drawers on the landing (just outside the bedroom). The second bedroom features twin beds, a large wardrobe, a bedside cabinet and small drawers set.
All windows in the lounge and bedrooms are fitted with mosquito screens so you can open the windows without any insects getting into the apartment.
Please note that this is a NO SMOKING apartment however the owners will allow smoking on the balcony.
|Further details outdoors|
Sunset Beach Club has outstanding, outdoor facilities with no less than 5 outdoor swimming pools, 3 separate children splash pools making it the perfect place for a fun-filled family holiday.
There is a friendly poolside bar for enjoying a refreshing, sociable drink as well as serving snacks and also an on-site restaurant. Plus there's a wellness centre with Turkish bath, sauna and treatments available (additional charges apply). There is also a convenient mini-market at The Sunset Beach Club for your daily groceries. Please note that these facilities are seasonal and are provide at the discretion of the complex management so are usually available between early April - end October each year.
This complex is in an unbeatable position as it is so close to the sea. You only need to take a few steps over the the promenade and you are on Koca Calis Beach. There is a small children's playground, sunbeds and parasols which are free to use. The nearby Fethiye Surf Club offers everything you could imagine including windsurfing, waterskiing, jet-skiing, parasailing, scuba diving, kitesurfing and wakeboarding.
A short, flat 10 minute stroll brings you to the main Calis Beach promenade, and its many bars and restaurants. The dolmus stops nearby to the complex so you can get about very easily using public transport to get to Calis centre or explore the local area. Many dolmus buses now conveniently stop outside the front of Sunset Beach if you don't want to walk into Calis.
For peace of mind during your stay, there is 24 hour security on site. Emergency contact numbers and emergency mobile phone are supplied so you can contact the local management or owners if necessary whilst on holiday.
Please note: the apartment is a first floor duplex apartment so unfortunately may not be suitable for anyone in a wheelchair or with any major walking difficulties.

About this location
The Turkish Aegean Coast region
This is a wonderful part of Turkey with dramatic mountain scenery, breathtaking sea views, sparkling clear waters and stunning sunsets (see our photo gallery for pictures of the area). You'll be spolit for choice for things to do in this area. You can combine a relaxing beach holiday with energetic sporting activities from watersports to paragliding, go off exploring ancient ruins and rock tombs or take one of many excursions on offer such as a boat trip or a jeep safari.
Experience the Turkish culture in the bazaar and local market, enjoy the local hospitality and tasty cuisine.. which is second to none! You'll find that the Turkish people are extremely friendly and welcoming, plus the cost of living is still cheaper than the UK and other EU countries (as Turkey is not in the euro zone and still has its own currency, the Turkish Lira) .. which makes your holiday spending money go further!
The climate is wonderful (with approximately 300 sunshine days per year) and temperatures are 30c+ degrees throughout the summer months. May, June and September are lovely months for families with younger children when it is slightly cooler with temperatures usually between the mid-high 20c degrees.
Calis is located 2.5 miles north of Fethiye and is a laid-back resort with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. It is not a full-on party place with wall-to-wall nightclubs so if you are looking for wild nightlife, then this is not the place for you. However if you enjoy relaxing days with plenty of nice bars and restaurants to choose from, with easy access to Fethiye and the surrounding area.. then this is a great place to stay.
With an amazing 4 km stretch of beach, you can always find your own peaceful spot on Calis beach. There are plenty of watersports and activities on offer at the nearby Fethiye Surf Club. The beach promenade is a lovely place to stroll along and is lined with shops, travel agencies (offering many excursions), cafes, bars and restaurants offering both Turkish and International cuisine. The local market takes place on Sunday so you can see the locals selling their wares. There is even the Sultan's City waterpark in Calis which is great fun for all the family.
From Calis, you can take the dolmus (local bus) or the leisurely water taxi to Fethiye (don't forget your camera as the views from the water taxis are stunning). Fethiye is a lively working Turkish town so is a great place to see the locals going about their every day lives and offers many restaurants and good shopping around the Old Town bazaar and the impressive marina. The huge market takes place on Tuesday with more than 500 stalls ... definitely the place to barter for all your holiday bargains and a great place to buy fresh produce such as locally grown fruit and vegetables.
At the northern end of Fethiye bay is the harbour of Gocek. The village has grown around the extensive yacht marina and is a great place to visit and watch the rich at play! Just to the south of Fethiye is the popular resort of Olu Deniz with its stunning lagoon and beach... probably one of the worlds most photographed beauty spots. Adrenline junkies can paraglide from the top of Mount Babadag down onto the beach at Olu Deniz to enjoy the breath-taking scenary. Why not stop off en-route in the hills at Hisaronu or Ovacik for a bite to eat as it is generally cooler up here on hot days.
Other interesting places/ things to do in the area to visit include:
- Climbing up to the Lycian Rock Tombs in Fethiye
- Exploring the Ancient ghost village of Kayakoy
- A boat trip around the 12 Islands or to Butterfly Valley
- A jeep safari to Patara Beach
- A day return on the fast ferry from Fethiye - Rhodes, Greece so you can experience 2 countries in 1 holiday!
More excursions which can be organised from Calis include visiting the:
- Mud baths at Dalyan and the ruins of Caunos
- Beautiful gorge of Saklikent and the ruins of Tlos
- Maginificent ancient city and wonders of Ephesus
- The amazing white calcium terraces and mineral waters at Pamukkale
Activities include scuba diving, trekking, kayaking, quad biking, horse riding, bicycle hire .. the list goes on and on so you will never run out of things to do in this area!!

"Beautiful setting, ideally located very clean."
Just returned from 9 nights at seashell 12 at sunset beach, we travel independently every year and this year was amazing, the apartment was perfect with everything we needed for our stay, the complex … More
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I am delighted that you have had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed the complex, beach and local area. I would be very happy to welcome your family back again.

"Fabulous place to stay - can't fault a thing"
Please do not hesitate to book this apartment , it was a wonderful holiday , perfect for a couple with older children as bedrooms on different floors with own bathroom.
Everything spotless , if you get there late at night I would recommend the welcome pack you won't be disappointed .
The shop on the complex is more expensive than the ones in town but it's very handy if you don't want to carry anything heavy too far.
The private part of the beach is a lovely idea , free sunloungers , one thing I would recommend is water shoes as it is very pebbly I wouldn't have coped without mine , but it's clean & the water warm .
The dolmus ( small mini bus ) stops right outside the complex every 5 mins or so you just hop on & off wherever you want as far as Feyithe for 2 Lira each ( 75p ) lovely on a hot day when walking is just too much.
Alternatively in the centre of Calis there are the water taxis which cost 6 lira each ( £3 ish ) such a lovely way to get into Feyithe very picturesque .
In all you won't regret booking this , I'm for sure going back in few years.
Wow ... what a fantastic review. I am so pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. Thank-you for pointing out some of the benefits of the apartment and the local area. We would be very happy to welcome you back again for a future holiday.
28 Aug 2014
First of all, I must say, that this is a relaxing place to be. The apartment is a home from home and the complex is just never busy, even when it's busy – it's a tardis.
This was our first time in Turkey, so we were a little apprehensive about that and it was the first self catering holiday after many years of being pampered on all inclusive. We just didn't know what to expect. We, didn't need to worry at all. Nicola made the booking process so smooth, even answering our seemingly endless stream of questions of what if and how to. A transfer from and to Dalaman airport was arranged, pick up no problem, even an unscheduled stop for water on the way. The unsung asset on site is Nadine. Not only is she a mine of local information, but, when my son was unfortunate to have an ear infection, she sorted out local medication for us.
The apartment itself is well appointed. It felt like a home from home. Then proportions and layout are such that we never got under each other's feet and on days when we wanted to just hang around the pool and use the apartment, it felt just right. We could sit on the balcony and supervise our older children swimming and playing in the pool. The layout meant that we could split upstairs for us (parents) and downstairs for them (offspring). Upstairs we had our own balcony which we utilised for civil adults only breakfasts. The children made ample use of the in house DVD player. There was a mound of storage, and tons of hangers for clothes.
As mentioned before, the site never seemed crowded even when it was busy. What helped was the apartments having their own sunbeds. We were asked to use only our own sunbeds, but, some apartments were not.
The location of the complex is perfect too. The beach is just across a not busy road. All along the beach to the left and the right are bars and restaurants. Turn right and you quickly reach the surf club, location for the opening scenes of Skyfall. Carry on to the end and you reach our favourite on the beach bar, Mekan. Turn left, and you walk towards Calis itself, more fantastic on the beach restaurants with the best sunset views ever. Try the Caretta Beach restaurant. All the beach bars have a very bohemian feel to them and do not hurry you along, on more than one occasion we spent the whole afternoon lounging whilst the kids played. You can jump on the inexpensive Dolmus into Calis, which is more hustle and bustle, or, it's only about 20 minute stroll.
Would we go back back? Absolutely, location 10/10, amenities 10/10 and apartment 10/10.
Thank you for submitting such a fabulous review. Both myself and Nadine do our upmost to help our guests both before they travel and whilst on holiday. Thank you for highlighting the benefits of the apartment, complex and location area and making some great recommendations. We would be very happy to welcome your family back again in the future.

"a joy to stay in"
5/5 for seashell 12, could not fault it everything about it was fantastic from the décor to the lay-out of the rooms a proper home away from home. This is how good it was the only small change I would make were the towels as the fluff came off them when you dried yourself , now if that is the only complained that should tell you how good this rental apartment was, will recommend them to anyone who asks me
Thank you for your positive comments about the apartment. We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday so much and would be very happy to welcome you back in the future.

We stayed at the apartment for two weeks June-July. Everything went as planned, transfer bus was on time to go in & out of complex. Many thanks to Nicola, she made everything during preparation stage to ensure we woud not have any problems during our stay.
Nadine was ready to solve any potential problem. We had really good time & enjoyed staying in apartment. Complex itself is so carefully designed & prime located. It is lined up perpendicular to the beach & any fresh breezze from sea is going through all balcony, which is really helpfull during hot time of the day.
Fethiye & Calis are really great place to spend a couple weeks on holiday. One week we travelled by car, have seen so many great places. And it is still more to see during our next stay. Beach near Sunset complex is not so marvelous as so many beaches around, but at least it is sand under your feet when you are going to water.
Guven's restaurant was our favourite because of great choice for table games, which could attract our children for a while. All games free of charge if you are ordering drinks at there.
Thanks Nicola & Nadine for all their help with our holiday arrangements. I will definitely recommend their services to my friends. Really good work. We may consider to stay at this place one more time next year.
Many thanks for such a glowing review. We always try our upmost to provide the best holiday service possible for our guests. We would be delighted to welcome you back in the future.

Loved our trip to Seashell 12, apartment was first rate and made a very comfortable base to
explore the local area. Apartment has all you need to cater for your everyday requirements and local area offered a wide selection of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.
Booking was simple and on-site assistance was available from Nadine who was available each day to answer any queeries.
Overall this was an great holiday and would thoroughly recommend this apartment.
Thank-you for taking the time to submit this lovely review.
I am delighted that you had a fantastic holiday as everyone involved tries their best to provide an easy booking service, with great service and assistance (if needed) whilst on holiday.
I am very happy that you would recommend the apartment and would be delighted to welcome you back to stay again in the future.

"Ideal holiday spot."
We stayed at this apartment for 1 week and there were 4 adults and an 11 year old in our group. It was a perfect place for a relaxing break. The area is very flat so is suitable for people who have trouble with hills and steps, but there is also plenty of taxis and buses you can use to get around. There is a good choice of restaurants along the promenade,and it doesn't cost a fortune to eat out every night and you get a free sunset to look at while your eating. The complex has plenty of swimming pools and outside bars, so you can just have a relaxing day by the pool.Transfers from the airport and back are well organised.
Thank you for your fantastic review and for summarising some of the great reasons to choose this apartment, complex and area for a holiday. We would be delighted to welcome you and your family back again in the future.

"Fabulous apartment, location and easy to book"
This is the first time I have booked over the internet and was very wary as you hear so many stories of people losing their money. However this experience was perfect. Nicole who was the person in England looking after the apartment was always available by e-mail and phone and immediately put my mind at rest, she could not have been more helpful, including offering advise of the area, especially as we were going out of season. We also arranged the airport transfer with her and this could not have been better. On arrival at the apartment we were met by Nadine who was out contact in Turkey and again she was fantastic.
The apartment was lovely, had everything you could want including a whole cupboard of DVD's, the kitchen was well equipped and although it was chilly this time of year in the evenings we did use the BBQ which worked very well.
Because the apartment is split over two floors it did give that additional privacy with the bedrooms being on different floors and each having their own shower and toilette.
The whole complex is very attractive and I would imagine buzzing in the summer but we wanted a quiet New Year away so this was ideal.
The complex is just over the road from the beach and a short walk to the main Calis Beach promenade with its restaurants where you can get a meal or just a drink.
At the end of the road is the bus station where you can catch a bus (Dolmus) into Fethiye the nearest town.
At this time of the year you do need the aircon on warm to heat the place up and as the floors are tiled, slippers or thick socks are a must as are warm jumpers.
Overall it was a very positive experience, I would trust using them again.
Thank you Nicole and Nadine for helping to make our stay so enjoyable.
Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. I am really pleased that you were happy with the booking service in the UK and the in-resort service in Turkey. I am happy that we could facilitate your out of season holiday arrangements and would be delighted to welcome you back sometime in the future.

"Great apartment, lovely location!"
This is a great apartment and complex for a family friendly holiday. There were six of us in the apartment, with two adults sleeping in the lounge area on the biggest sofa-bed i have seen. Since the apartment has two bathrooms, two balconies and is over two floors it still felt very spacious with lots of storage space. If you had very young children you would be cautious with the steep stairs inside but we had no problems with our two, age 5 and 7. There was everything we needed. Having a washing machine was particularly good and meant we didn't need to take as much with us.
The location of the apartment was excellent. The pools were right outside which meant it was really easy to keep an eye on the children and to just pop back if you had forgotten anything etc. If you had older kids you wouldn't even need to be poolside really. We expected the pools to be very busy but this wasn't the case as many of the apartment owners apparently don't rent the apts out. This meant it was busy enough for a good atmosphere but plenty of room for the sun-beds which came with the apartment to be poolside and for the kids to play in the pool without bumping into each other or anyone else!
The complex was very well maintained. The onsite supermarket was slightly more expensive than others as you would expect but was still very reasonable and well stocked. The same for the onsite bar. Again a bit more expensive but lovely food.
One of the big bonuses of this apartment was having Nadine (and not forgetting Analyne) on hand. We had a bit of a medical problem while we were there and they couldnt have been more helpful and supportive going well above and beyond expectations. It also meant that booking a car or a trip was very easy. I cant thank you enough, ladies!
If you like beaches i would really recommend hiring a car and going to Katranci which is just 10 mins by car. The sandy beach was lovely, not too busy and perfect for the kids to play on. Definitely our favourite place of the holiday. I would also recommend Jerry's boat trip, especially if you like fishing and good food.
All in all this was one of our best holidays, the complex and apartment was so much better than the package deals we have been on before. No comparison really.
We will definitely be going back!
Thank-you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It is great to hear feedback, suggestions and recommendations from our guests.
I'm really pleased you were helped out by our property managers when you needed medical assistance. We are delighted that you would return again and would love to welcome you back on another holiday.
