Interaction with Guests
I will welcome you and explain everything about the villa and its surroundings and hand over the keys to you.
If I am abroad or not available, my husband Mustafa or Emmy, a good friend will replace me.
During your stay we will be available via the (house) phone or mail to answer your questions about the house or its surroundings.
Get out and explore! There’s a lot to see aside from the tourist stuff...
On 500m from the house you will find a beach and the old harbour, on 300m. the shoppingcentre of modern Antalya and even closer the big city park with a marvellous view and plenty of possibilities for a nice evening out for all tastes…
History is around the corner with antique places such as and Hadrian’s Gate and the old Alaaddin mosque next door that gives a local flavor when calling for the pray. There are even various churches nearby.
We will give you more tips after booking and as we lived there for 9 years we know the local life, so ask us:)
We have a bike with children seat and there are public bikes for rent at walking distance.
Public transport in the centre is rather good and cheap.
We recommend you to buy a public transport card/ Antcart (8tl) that you can fill with money, more economic and easier then cash payment. Ask me for an overview of Antalya public transport...
A good way of getting around to places hard to reach with public transport can be to rent a taxi & driver for a day. Prices depend on the places and your negotiation talent.
Car & parking
The parking policy of Kaleiçi is not stable and we do not recommend to park your car there. We can show you some paid and unpaid parking spaces on walking distance.
If you rent a car in Kaleiçi itself then parking is for free and the owners will help you with parking at a legal place. The neighbour rents out cars and we have good experiences with their services.
Other Things to Note
We care about the local people and Antalya and in order to maintain the destination as it is, we will be happy to provide you with tips that support locals and save energy and water.
Please put off the air-co, radiator and all lights, also outside before leaving... better for you, us and the environment!
Smoking is allowed but preferably outside.
Pets are welcome after previous consultation.
If something is broken we will arrange it upon departure or via the Airbnb system.
it was our pleasure to stay at your house. i would strongly recomend it. excellent location with local shops, some working 24-7, harbour, beach and restaurants. I would recomend breakfast in the garden from local bakery. The villa was really beautiful and spacious and well decorated. I would love to come here again very soon
Great location; lovely home. Angelique went out of her way to even meet late at night after flights were delayed. Would recommend to anyone!
The house is right in Kaleici the old city, perfect for the city tour, Kaleici is not big anyway. Within 5 minutes walking you can reach my most favorite restaurant named Balik Meyhanesi and also a lot of some others like a pension restaurant just near by the ancient wall, 2 meters away from Balik maybe. Within 10 minutes walking you can reach most places of the old city, in Clock tower or Hadrian Gate you can take the train and the train could take you to Antalya museum, but remember the museum does not open on Monday.
Well, the house itself is just perfect, 2 bedrooms upstairs with 1 big bed in each room. Living room and the kitchen are downstairs, where you can cook the tea and plan your tour detail with your friends. Washing machine outside, and a garden. Yes it's perfectly clean and comfortable, I like the sofa very much.
Last but the most important, Angelique, the owner is very warmhearted, and she lives in the city for more than 9 years, she is always helpful when you ask information about the city or adventures near the city :)
Nous avons séjourné 3 nuits dans cette maison agréablement décorée.
Plusieurs éléments sont néanmoins à souligner. D'une part, Angélique nous a laissé du linge sale (drap et serviettes de bain) exposé sur le balcon du rez de chaussée. D'autre part, il nous a été impossible de d'obtenir de l'eau tiède au mitigeur (soit elle était trop chaude soit trop froide). Par ailleurs, la maison, mitoyenne, est assez sonore et nos avons souffert des aboiements répétés du chien du voisin.
Enfin, élément extérieur, la maison est situé dans une rue très passagère le soir, donc, ceux qui sont à la recherche d'un peu de calme doivent s'abstenir, car les soirées sont assez animées à Antalya.
We had a great and enjoyable stay in Angelique’s house. It is exactly as in the pictures, very personally decorated with a strong feminine touch. The location is very central and probably in the nicest areas of Antalya. Angelique is very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the minaret next by where the muezzin calls for prayer five times a day starting at 5am in the morning.
IT WAS AMAZING! Kaleichi is a heart of Antalya. Just step out of you door and you're in the middle of ancient city. Small winding streets are packed by small shops, souvenirs, cafes and bars. There's small and cozy Mermelli beach near, just 6 min away. It's not free as public beach but it worths its money especially if you have children. There're no so big waves as on public and you can always control your child because beach is small. We tested both Lara and Konyalty beaches and felt in love with Mermelli.
House is very good. There's a small garden inside where you can rest and hide from sun after 2pm. There's a mosque near so you'll hear all daily azans, and every is different. It's very interesting. It'll add special Eastern color to your stay. Note: 1st one is about 5-6am, but don't be afraid, you'll stop hear it after 2 days.
Angelique and Mustafa are very welcome and helpful hosts and will help you in all your needs.

About the Host, Angelique
I am a Dutch living in Antalya with my Turkish husband, 4 year old sun, dogs and cat and hopefully soon a horse again:)
We have recently moved closer to nature and left behind our special Kaleici Villa for you!
Together with a Turkish partner I have a company called TRIADA and we work on international projects in fields such as sustainable tourism and education.
I am also a horse trainer and my husband is a farrier traveling all around Turkey. I am a matchmaker and with my activities I try to connect different people and cultures.
As we lived in the Kaleici for 7 years, we know the local life, so please do not hesitate to ask us for insider tips:)
