“Family holidays”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We stayed 4 days at Baraka House: 2 adults and 3 children aged 9, 7 and 2. One bungalow was big enough for the 5 of us. The children slept in the big room, my husband and I in the smaller room. Ishan has un unbelievable sense of service and hospitality, he notices your needs before you notice them yourself. He came up with beach towels and beach toys for the children, let us use his kitchen, the fruit in his garden, he invited us to the birthday of his nephew, etc. Breakfast is available the whole morning, it's very tasty and extended... The beach is on the other side of the road. Also the children liked Baraka House a lot. A perfect stay for families with small children!!!

We were originally planning on staying one night here during our 3 week holiday and wound up staying almost a week. Even then, we were actually sad to leave. You know that you have encountered a very special place when after only a short period of time you become attached to the place and most importantly, to the people.

Ishan and his family were more than wonderful. I have never encountered such hospitable people. The place itself is clean and comfortable with everything that you need and is amazingly relaxing. Lots of things to do in the area...beaches hiking etc. And Ishan is the perfect host. Whether he is fixing up incredibly tasty meals or entertaining you with his photos, devices, bartending tricks and the like, he had his family's kind hearts and welcoming souls make this a truly amazing place.

We didn't eat anywhere else while we were there because we wanted not only his cooking but the company of Ishan and his family.

This is really one of those places that you want to return to no matter how much of the world there is to see and I really can't imagine, from a traveller's perspective, a greater compliment.

I hesitated writing this review because this is the kind of place you want to keep to yourself, but I owed it to the family and the hotel, they really were the highlight of our trip to Turkey.

Thank you Ishan to you and your family. And people out there....you have to check this place out, even if you weren't thinking of heading this way.

My wife and I were visiting friends who live in Turkey and the four of us took a side trip along the Lycean coast. Baraka House was recommended by our host for the previous night [Mehtap Pension] and what a great recommendation it was. We were met at the gate by Ihsan and shown to our cabins. They are really comfortable in a quiet location. Bottle of wine on the terrace; what more does anyone want?

Ihsan cooks evening meals but suggested that we could go along the beach to a local restaurant, which we did. We wanted to visit the nearby Chimera flames after dark. 'No problem; have a drink with your meal and I'll drive you' was his solution. We have travelled the world but never have had such an offer before. Thank you.

I liked Ihsan, I liked his philosophy for life and the cabins are very, very comfortable.

Room Tip: Our party used two cabins. My advice is don't worry they are all great.

Baraka House for us is the term of paradise-like and warm-hearted hospitality far beyond usual. We had a wonderful relaxing, unforgettable vacation time thanks to Ihsan and all his familiy - and we will love to come back.

It was luck that we arrived at this wonderful place. We came with our rental car to Cirali and the owner of an other pension called Ishan from Baraka House and we spent to unforgettable nights in one of his fantastic bungalows. You can not get a better breakfast then the one prepared by Ishan and also the fish we ate at night was superb. High quality materials in the bungalows, nice terrace, deck chair and hammocks in the nice citrus-fruit garden and absolutely quite and peaceful. Thank you very much Ishan - we will come back!!!

Perfect location, away from the hubbub of town, close to the beach and the best beachside restaurants. The cabins are modern (with modern baths) and very clean with good A/C if needed. The locale is beautiful and peaceful. There's many good close-by day trips if you tire of Olympus/Cirali beach. The breakfasts are extensive with several fresh homemade items, and if you want to eat dinner at Baraka House, the meals are terrific. The owners are very friendly and will do just about anything to meet your needs.
