“Lovely, spacious self-catering accommodation in a spectacular location”
“Lovely, spacious self-catering accommodation in a spectacular location” 5 of 5 stars I'm surprised by the mixed reviews here - we thought Elvina Apartments were excellent. Maia apartment was spacious, simply but very nicely decorated, with great internal facilities like a dishwasher, washing machine, great cooking facilities, and a very nice external seating area with direct access to a pool shared with the apartment next door. The pictures are a very accurate representation of the apartments and grounds - no better or worse. The setting is spectacular - yes, high up the hill, and many would struggle to walk up it (which we routinely did, but there are plenty of taxis in town). We liked the fact that were were not disturbed by daily cleaning - we were able to take care of day-to-day matters and appreciated the lack of intrusion, so the cleaning every 3-4 days was perfect for us. The pool area was great - and we did use it despite having the shared access to the infinity pool. We found the whole place to be spotless. We have stayed twice, and both times the reps have judged things perfectly - helpful but not pushy. We were left alone but it was made clear that they were available should we need them - exactly the low key approach we prefer. Yes, I agree it is a shame that some useful goods are not provided - although we certainly appreciated the olives and cheese in the fridge. I recommend making use of earlier reviews which do suggest some of the things that it is worth bringing with you and which are a bit of a pain to buy. We loved this place for its low key approach to providing excellent accommodation, and thoroughly recommend it. Kalkan is also spectacular and we will certainly return.

We will definitely visit again!
The accommodation was as described, fantastic fixtures and fittings, brilliant infinity pool and great complex with fantastic views of Kalkan and Kalamar Bay. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend. What a fantastic company, excellent service, 5 star. Highly recommend the Elvina apartments and Kalkan is a beautiful village. This was our third visit and we will be returning 2016 and will be using The Turquoise Collection again, because their service is truly fantastic.
