Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Our own spacious, 3 large bedroom, duplex apartment arranged over 2 floors with a huge 180 sq metres of living space. There are 2 shower rooms (one en-suite to the second master bedroom) and an en-suite bathroom to the main master bedroom. As soon as you enter the entance hall you get a feeling of the spaciousness on offer (not found in most apartments) for your family to enjoy.
Sunshine Apartments are located in a tranquil area of Calis (pronounced Chalis) but are less than a 10 minute walk from the centre of Calis, the pedestrianised promenade and beach. There are local shops, bars and restaurants, all within a few minutes walk. The large and popular Calis Sunday market is located just a few minutes walk from the apartment.
This luxury apartment is fully equipped for self catering, with a well appointed kitchen that has all the mod cons you will need including a washing machine and a dishwasher (saves on the washing up!) The kitchen and lounge area are L shaped, open plan, spacious and will easily accomodate a family or two. The lounge area has 2 large settees, one L shaped giving comfortable seating for 6 and access to the wrap-around balconies. The lounge is where you will find the 32" Samsung flat screen LCD TV, satellite, DVD player and JBL Ipod speaker.
There is one good sized twin bedroom on the first floor, with its own wrap around balcony area (and two sets of sliding patio doors to gain access) adjacent is the toilet /shower room. The second floor has 2 generous double bedrooms (each around 20m2) both have their own balcony areas with mountain views. One master bedroom has its own large en-suite shower room and toilet and the main master bedroom has a large en suite bathroom.
The apartment has been tastefully furnished by us late last year and everything is brand new and of a high standard that we would expect in our own home, it is perfect for families/parties as well as couples.
The wrap-around balconies have tables and chairs available for Al fresco dining. During the day you can choose to sit in the sun or shade to eat (or snooze) another benefit of the stylish balcony/terrace areas that wrap around both sides of the apartment. From the top floor rooms there are lovely views of the mountains and towards the Fethiye area.
The apartment is situated within a small complex of 20 newly completed apartments, divided into 4 low level blocks all overlooking the pool area. The complex itself is well maintained and has a very friendly feel about it, with ample grassed areas to relax in as well as a large communal sun-bathing area by the poolside. Children and adults will enjoy swimming or cooling off in the turtle shaped pool whose head is a children's splash pool.
There are plenty of things to do locally from the apartment including crazy golf, a gym, tennis and the Aqua waterpark is great fun for the children (both old and young!) Further a field are the Rock Tombs, Saklikent Gorge, Pamukkale, Hisarouno and Olu Deniz and for the more adventurous day trips to Rhodes. No holiday would be complete without a boat trip around the 12 islands which start in the stunning Fethiye Harbour. (Trips best booked in the harbour)
There are currently 4 bikes for your use, extra bikes are available to rent locally. This is a pleasant way to explore the area and to get to the centre of Fethiye via the newly extended promenade (which is getting ever closer to Calis)
Public transport is very accessable, either by the local dolmus (minibuses) or larger buses. You can get on and off the dolmus wherever you wish along all the routes, just ask the driver. There is a dolmus stop within 100 meters that can take you into Fethiye for a cost of 2.00tlr (about 65p!). Olu Deniz and Hisaronou are easily accessible via the dolmus too. Another option for a trip to Fethiye is to use the water taxi station from the centre of Calis. This takes a bit longer but is worth it for the spectacular views do make sure you take your camera.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Turkey is a beautiful country where visitors are amazed by the incredible scenery it has to offer. The beaches are white and sandy and the sea is Sparkling and turquoise. With the mild climate the country is often bathed in sunshine for nearly 300 days a year and the local Turkish hospitality is second to none.
There are plenty of different activities available. Turkey is known as the number one destination for paragliding enthusiasts. It is also perfect for going on long walks, the Lycian way is a 509 km way-marked footpath around the coast and mountains, starting from Fethiye and finishing in Antalya and is extremnely popular with tourists and locals alike. You can wander from Calis to Fethiye along the beach front which usually takes around 50 mins and offers plenty of places to stop along the way.
Turkey offers many other activities including, horse riding, wind surfing, kite surfing, water skiing, parascending and skiing in the winter months.
Calis Beach resort has stunning views across the bay to Sovalye Island and Fethiye. The sea front area has a long promenade which has numerous shops, bars and restaurants serving a variety of international dishes. The beach is also popular with the local turtles who lay their eggs here. We have also sat and watched the dolphins in the bay and enjoyed watching the beautiful sunsets. The beach is sand & shingle and is looked after by the bars on the sea front. Beds and parasols are available for a small cost. There are some water sports available further down the beach, such as wind surfing, kite sailing and water skiing. The local water taxi takes you on a journey from the river in Calis into the stunning bay to Fethiye.
Calis is close to the lovely town of Fethiye, which you can grab the bus from that goes pass the front gates every 15 minutes, or why not catch a water taxi which will take a little longer to get there but is extremely enjoyable and relaxing with wonderful views and a chance to take in the glorious coastline. We also have some bikes that you may use. A bus journey takes about 10mins to get to Fethiye as opposed to 30mins on the water taxi.
There is a lovely market in Calis every Sunday which is just 2mins walk away. At the market you can buy lots of different things from fresh lmeat and fruit & veg. You can also treat yourself to some of the designers most recent items with copies made such as shoes, handbagsand sunglasses plus more! Remember to haggle for your items!
For an even bigger market experience, head to Fethiye for the Tuesday market.
Fethiye also boasts a stunning harbour where you catch the glimpse of turtles that rise to the surface and again with many shops and restaurants you’re spoilt for choice.
