Interaction with Guests
I am always happy to guide you towards great restaurants and wonderful places to visit in the area.
Cirali Homestay is a hideaway from the village situated in a forest with
a large garden yet within easy reach to the beach, shops and restaurants.
Walk 15 minutes or borrow one of my bicycles
From Antalya take a dolmus (Minibus) “Çiçek-Tur” or “Bati Antalya” at central bus station (otocar) heading in direction of Kumluca/Finike/Kas. The driver will drop you off at the Çıralı junction* (about 70 km from Antalya). Change to another dolmus heading to Çıralı.
*from Çıralı junction:
Follow the road and after 5.5 km you’ll see a sign with a delta symbol (see our photos for a picture of the sign) on the left-hand-side of the road. There is also a sign that says Sebil, or water spout, and most locals will know where that is. Follow the arrow, turning right onto a country lane. Watch for the next delta sign on the right, and from there it is only 250 meters.
Renting a car at the Cirali airport is a wonderful way to see this part of Turkey. I have space for you to park. From Antalya take the road in direction of Kemer/Kumluca/Kas. After about 70 km you will see the sign of the Çıralı junction*
By private transport:
If you like, I can arrange a transfer with a professional driver to meet you at the airport for
65 € and brings you direct to my home stay.
Other Things to Note
I am happy to make you as comfortable as I can. But please be aware this is a very rustic property, without air conditioning, etc.
the toilet system is different in Turkey. Please throw the paper in the waste bin
Diana is very warmful person. She made us feel welcome and excepted at hers garden of even. She even showed us around the village when we came. It was a really pleasnt stay, me and my girlfriend like it a lot, we would love to return to Diana's place :)
We had a lovely holiday at Diana's place. To begin with, she answered all my queries before I arrived very promptly, and arranged transport for us (we arrived at the airport late at night). When we arrived after midnight Diana was there to greet us with hot food and cold beer - we could not have been made to feel more welcome and almost immediately the place felt like home.
Throughout the week we stayed Diana was extremely helpful, with plenty of suggestions of things to do, places to see, good places to eat, etc. We were there in July, and it was very hot, but it was great to hang out in the middle of the day in Diana's garden, where there are several shady areas with cushions or hammocks or tables to sit/lie and read or draw or play backgammon or just snooze. The Homestay is far away enough from the main part of Çirali to be peacefully away from it all, but 5 mins on a push bike and you're at the beach/supermarket/restaurants.
I would recommend this place to anybody, and I certainly hope to return sometime. If I had to sum up Diana's place with one word, it would be "Relaxing".
We stayed 3 nights at Çirali homestay. Diana is a really kind and helpful person and we really admire her for creating this big project by herself. You really feel into the nature and far from touristic areas. Every night there is a big fire and music and that create a really cool mood.
On the downside, for the asked price we expected more. There was no included breakfast contrary to the airbnb description. The cleanliness of the common areas was questionnable (one of the 2 bathroom doors don't even close) and part of the site was more of a work in progress.
So this place is not for everyone: if you are looking forward to meet nice and new people from all around the planet (there are many volunteers living at Çirali in addition to the other airbnb guests), you should definitely go there. But if you are looking for a more intimate environnement maybe you should not book there.
We wish the best to Diana, this is a nice project :)
To put it in one sentence: this place is truly amazing!
Diana is a super nice woman & great host and has build a crazy cool place for her own and her guests in the woods near Cirali. Me and my girlfriend stayed there for three nights (we had planned to stay for two nights but prolonged our stay since we didn't want to leave) and it was definitely the best place we stayed at during our whole trip.
Diana has a lot of knowledge about the area to share (places to eat at, things to do and see, the best beaches etc.) and the accomodations are cozy, clean and really beautiful - just like the whole place. There's so much to do and to see around the area that we were really sad about having to leave. You can go climbing and hiking along the sea on the ancient lycian way, see the ruins of olympus, do a boat tour or just relax on the beach. everything seems to be nearby and easy to reach (diana even provides bikes for her guests!) and at the same time you stay in a little house in these amazing woods with a feeling of being really far away from any noise, cars and civilisation. Amazing!
Diana and her friends even cooked for us the last night (the best food we had for ages) and it was just amazing sitting outside in the evenings with them, talking, drinking and enjoying the company. We will definitely miss her, but we will come back.
Contrary to some of the more recent reviews we didn't have any problems with mosquitos (there were almost none) or the sanitary places being dirty (which was not the case). The place is as clean as possible considering everything is outside.
There's only one negative aspect here - you wont want to leave anymore ;)
I had a lovely week staying in Diana's treehouse. Diana is a hugely generous and welcoming host and staying with her feels like staying with an old friend. The place is very peaceful, green and chilled-out, I loved sitting in the kashk writing, with the cats and chickens wandering by and the ducks showering in the sprinkler. The treehouse is very comfortable, with an enclosed room and an outdoor lounge, with a hammock, its own bathroom with a power shower. Cirali is a short bike ride or walk away down a dry riverbed, with mini-marts, a few nice restaurants, one bar (it's a good one) and the beach. In short - everything you need, the perfect spot for a nice peaceful break. And Diana seems to attract good people. I'm definitely coming back!
We stayed 6 nights with Diana. Here are the pros and cons :
+: Diana gave very good recommendations for beaches, restaurants and other activities.
+: Diana is flexible and easy going.
-: However, for the requested price, we would have expected a cleaner place (in particular, the common bathroom). It is normal that a place in the forests cannot be 100% clean, but it would have been appreciated that the kitchen and the sanitary would have been regularly cleaned. Also the bed mattress was dirty.
-: Lots of mosquito’s (better bring your own mosquito tent with you) and beginning from 5 a.m. noise from the ducks and the chickens.
-: Even if the site is in the forest, it is not too far from the main road (traffic noise).
Stunning! Me and my boyfriend stayed at diana's place for 2 nights and it was an amazing time! She was very helpful and gave us perfect directions to get to the place and also change the booking conditions for us, as minimum stay was supposed to be 3nights. The place is a magic garden full of animals and Diana is a super woman, with a deep contact with mother earth. She's been always there for a chat and told us how she manage to build the place on her own:so inspiring! Thanks Diana and say hallo to all you friends
