  • Charming villa in the old city. Great location in a beautiful neighborhood, we really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

    March 2014
  • A very nice place to spend a holiday! My wife and I stayed here for 1 week over New Year's. The villa is cozy and in a convenient location. We felt right at home. Angelique and Mustafa shuttled us to and from the airport for a fair price.

    It was nice being just a short walk from the restaurants, sites, and shops in Kaleici. We also used the villa's kitchen to cook at home. For a quick way to Konyaalti Beach/Antalya Museum the tram stops are easily accessible, or you can walk there in about 30 minutes.

    Some tips about the area: Kaleici is a bustling area of the city, so it is not always quiet. Be prepared to haggle over pretty much everything, and always be skeptical about what the sales people tell you. Get out and explore! There's lots to see aside from the tourist stuff.

    Overall we were very happy with the villa and had a great time in Antalya!

    January 2014
  • We had a great time in Angelique's house. It is a lovely house and is situatied in the historic old town, very close to the coast and within walking distance of the harbour and the new side of town. I would recommend staying in the house and I will stay there if I return to Antalya.

    December 2013
  • I stayed in Angelique's beautiful house in Kaleiçi for 1.5 months, and I am so happy with my decision! The house is very spacious, clean, charming, stylishly decorated, comfortable, and had everything I needed for a long stay. It is ideally located in the historic old town within the city walls, close to all the tourist attractions, historical sites, and beaches, yet the house is in a quieter part of Kaleiçi so it never feels too hectic. The house gets gorgeous sunlight and it is close to a mosque, so you can hear the call to prayer everyday--it's an authentic Turkish experience, and the location is unbeatable. Angelique is a wonderful, friendly host who's very responsive and easy to communicate with. Angelique and Mustafa were always available to help, and were even able to pick me up and drop me off at the airport! You can't go wrong by choosing this house! It couldn't have been a better experience, and I'll definitely be back whenever I'm in Antalya! Teşekkürler!

  • the villa in the heart of the old city near all the entertainment but still in a quiet street . the place had all the facilities one would hope fore. Angelique and Mostafa we very friendly and helpful . highly recomended place with a very reasonable price....... thanks Angelique and Mostafa FOR A VERY NICE STAY.....................

    July 2013
  • Angelique's place is great in a fantastic location. Check-in was smooth, and communication was easy with the host. The villa was exactly as described and suited our purposes perfectly. It is a little noisy at night, but that's what you get when you are benefiting from being in a bustling area, and we had no trouble sleeping at all! It was also a little tricky to find within the old town (with both taxi drivers, and some locals unaware of where it was) however we found it soon enough, and if we hadn't Angelique had offered to meet us at alternative locations that were easier to find if we needed! We recommend.

    June 2013
  • This house is the perfect place to stay, if you want everything in one! Just walking distance from the sea, shops -even a small supermarket- history, bars, and restaurants. But in a small quiet safe street, without tourists and traffic (only taxis and residents can drive in). We walked to the tramway, the old tram and lots of buses to everywhere (the public traffic in Antalya is incredibily!) . No need to hire a car. The bus 08 is fantastic, only a few min walk to the busstop, and we saw the city from east to west (Konyaalti beach to Lara beach) for less than 1 euro!
    The house is really cosy and very clean, everything we needed was there (even babystuff, which we didn't need;)) We felt like Sultans in our small Ottoman villa.
    We didn't realize in advance about the perfect situation of the house, but we think we couldn't find better.
    Angelique helped us with lots of information about Antalya and what to see and where to go, ànd in our own language!
    Thanks, we will come back !!

  • Excellent séjour dans cette belle maison...
    Situé dans le vieux quartier d'Antalya. Le quartier difficilement accessible en voiture.
    une des chambres dispose d'un clic clac au lieu d'un vrai lit et c'est dommage car sinon la villa est très bien équipée, la propriétaire est très agréable et serviable +++
