I travel a lot all around Turkey, and enjoy trying new places, meeting new people and experiencing alternative services as I myself run a boutique hotel. Also as a Cirali lover, I have experienced many alternative lodgings around the area, however, for last 10 years Hobbit Evi is the only place I love and keep on returning back for a relaxing vacation.
It is located at the best part of the Cirali beach, very close to the seaside. Hobbit Evi has a beautiful garden with special old, huge trees. It is like heaven during summer time to spend some time under these charming trees. It is really peaceful to lie down on a hammock under one of these trees and watch the nature.
There are only four very special rooms, so the place is all the time really quite and peaceful. The rooms are very simple, tasty and well organised. They do have a special energy to make you feel comfortable. All rooms have book shelves with interesting and special collection of books.
Sibel and Serhat are wonderful cooks, they prepare very special Turkish dishes; mezze plates, salads and all sort of meat and fish dishes. You will want to stay for dinner every night.
They also have an incredible collection of alternative world music and every evening you enjoy the wonderful ambience with the amazing music. This is one of the reasons I also love staying here. They have a great music taste.
Only one comment I may make for improvement and that is their varieties for the breakfast may be increased. Sibel makes incredible jams with local organic fruits and would like to have more option than one choice a day. Also, number of cheese alternatives may be increased. However, they serve tasty yoghurt, local olives, variety of egg dishes and some times incredible boreks (filled dough with cheese).
Every time I stay at Hobbit Evi, I get the chance to meet very special people staying and enjoy incredible converstaions both with other guests and Sibel & Serhat.
Tyr it one time and you will see Hobbit Evi will be your second home!
