My husband and I stayed at Baraka House for a week in early April following its great reviews on this site - and we weren't disappointed. It was the kind of week that was just what the Dr ordered: good comfort, good food, good hospitality and a stone's throw from the unspoilt beach.

Our hour's airport transfer from Antalya late at night took us from the hubbub and high rises of the city to a winding narrow road down a steep, steep hill. Our driver got lost finding the place (he didn't seem entirely sure where Cirali was, let alone the guest house itself!) but with some friendly local advice we arrived safe and sound. We later found out that the owner runs his own airport transfer so we'd probably do that if we came again!

As for the place, it was three 3-room chalets in a lemon grove, with the owner's house at the front. He was beginning to build 3 more as we left and for that reason hadn't booked any more guests - very considerate. We got the impression that Tripadvisor was the reason he'd decided to expand. But there is no more room for more chalets so I think this place will still stay quiet despite the expansion.

Anyway! This stay was perfect for us! To summarise my favourite parts:
- Hearing the waves crashing on the shore as the last thing before I slept.
- The large, varied, incredibly healthy homemade Turkish breakfasts, at any time we wanted.
- Walking out of the entrance and onto the more or less deserted beach (in April)
- The modern interior, especially the shower room.
- The flora and fauna. My husband and I befriended the resident cat, the wild tortoises meandering about, the chickens (even the cockerels) and the hedgehog.
- Cirali itself which had the feel of certain villages I've visited in Laos, Thailand and Vietnam - very low key, simple.
- The surroundings. It's not just about the beach. You can borrow their bikes and cycle 20 mins to the mountainside flames of Chimaera or walk the other way to the Roman ruins.
-And of course the owner and his family who were very professional and attentive.

One day, we also took the owner's (somewhat self-serving!) advice and had him drive us to Mount Olympus. It was pretty cool to go up the cable car to the summit and see the snow etc etc but all in all cost about 200 quid for a morning's excursion!! The entry was 140 lira, as was the owner's taxi service! So be warned if you decide to do that!

All in all, we'd love to go back. And April was a great time of year to go. In 7 days we had 1 morning of heavy rain, 2 days of moderate wind but the rest was very warm, very still (25 degrees ish) beach weather. Perfect.

Oh and we just found out that we are expecting our first child, conceived in Cirali! So it must have been relaxing!

Next time we go, we'll aim for turtle season!

This is a peaceful boutique hotel surrounded by beautiful nature. It has 3 bungalows in total (2 will follow very soon we were told) in a really beautiful area that has pretty much all natural elements, including a long beach, mountains, a lot of lemon and orange trees, chicken and a lot more. The beauty of the nature here is not being disrupted by big touristic all inclusive hotels in Cirali, because the area houses only small hotels, mostly bungalows. Baraka house is surrounded by orange and lemon trees and if you are there in the beginning of April you will notice that everywhere smells like orange flower perfume. The owner Ihsan has picked some very tasty lemons for us to take home. He will also make you a tasty breakfast every morning and give you plenty of recommendations for spending time in the area.You can also borrow bikes from the hotel for free. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, especially if you'd like to have a relaxing holiday in the nature.

Baraka house lies in a beautyful garden of orange and lemon trees. The houses are very, very modern and comfortable! We stayed here three nights - longer than originally planned - and the owners tried to fulfill every single of our wishes. They cooked amazing meals for dinner as well as for breakfast (with fresh orangejuice and homemade jam from the garden). They also drove us to the Tahtali Dagi and to Antalya. The beach was only a stonecast away.

We highly recommend this place and are already planning to come back!

Have just spent the weekend here and really did not want to leave. The bungalows are really clean and comfortable and have everything you need. It's just such a relaxing place and so well looked after. The breakfasts are also amazing. If you are thinking of staying in Cirali do not look at anywhere else to stay as I actually went to Cirali the weekend before for a day and looked at a lot of places there but Baraka was the best compared to all the rest and after staying there it was definitely the right choice.

I have stayed in Baraka for a few days and I just fell in love of its clean nature and the beach, We had breakfast that I have never been enjoyed that much so far with various fruits and Baraka specialties, I will definitely come back again and enjoy the silence of the Olympus and climb the hill to get to Chimera fire.

My parents and I stayed at Baraka house for 5 nights in September 2012. Having a delayed flight from Manchester we were initially concerned about the transfer to cirali. Ihsan and Hamdi from Baraka house ensured that we were met at the airport efficiently with no hesitation and no fuss.
We were delighted with the tranquil and relaxed atmosphere. The whole family made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms easily accommodate 4 and are spacious with a very nice bathroom and a lovely balcony to relax on at sunset. The breakfasts were beautifully prepared with local fresh produce.
The bungalows are set in an ideal location just across the small road from the beach and next to a lovely and quirky delicatessen.
A couple of minor issues with the bungalow door and bathroom did not detract from our stay at all and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we shall definitely return to Baraka house next year.
