“Just perfect!”

Without doubt the most amazing and relaxing holiday we have ever spent. The villa and the views were simply stunning and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, attentive or friendly. The memories of the trips out on the speed boat - swimming in the Med followed by lunch on one of the islands - will stay with us all for some time.

We will definitely be back!

“Personification of excellence with smiles”

It's often disappointing when one returns to a previous holiday venue as often things and people are not as one remembers. This is definitely not the case here. In less than 24 hours Ibo and his team have made us even more welcome than last time and have surpassed their previous standards of friendliness and superb hospitality .

“Absolutely fantastic villa and staff...we have had a brilliant week”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have spent a week here with our extended family from 81 to 14 years old and everyone has had a fantastic time, the villa is lovely with great views, a superb terrace and pool and sumptuous accommodation inside, but what really make it special is the fantastic staff who have made fabulous meals, taken us in the boat scuba diving, wake boarding, swimming and island hopping or driven us to the towns and water park at a moments notice. We could not have asked for more attentive service, nothing has been too much trouble.

“Gorgeous Gocek property”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a beautiful property on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Spacious and appointed with six bedrooms and large living areas, it was a perfect choice for our party of nine.
We also took the extras package, which includes a van, a boat and a wonderful staff of three. Our captain and driver (Mehmet), our terrific cook and translator, Ibrahaim (Ibo) and Savash, who was so helpful and made everything hum along. Having the team with us not only made our experience relaxing, but also fun and authentic, at mealtimes Ibo would often tell us about Turkey and try to help us learn a few words of Turkish. Additionally, having transport, we were able to see a lot of the surrounding area, including the 12 islands around Gocek, which are amazing.
As the pictures show, the house is gorgeous, the pool is lovely, and the view to die for! This is a great rental for a larger party.
Tekkesur ederim.

“Best Kept Secret In Turkey”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

Four families , 11 people, all first timers to Turkey, so excitement and a little trepidation.
From the minute we arrived until the last hug goodbye Villa Vista [Carmina] and the three fabulous staff provided nothing short of 5 star service and friendship....so much so that we have ALREADY BOOKED for three weeks in 2014.
Fabulous villa, great rooms, sooooooo comfy beds, incredible views, embarrasingly helpful staff [thanks Ibo, Mehmet and Savash] and mouth watering food.
We are very fortunate to having stayed at some of the best hotels, villas and resorts in world, but the TOTAL package of Gocek and Villa Carmina will take many many years of beating - just try it !!!!

“Luxury and first class service from start to finish”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We travelled to villa carmina/vista with Elixir holidays. I will review this company first.

They are a specialist agency for Turkey. We have used them previously and I have to say they are outstanding. Service, staff, ease of booking etc makes them stand out as a company.

On to the villa called both carmina and vista? We were a party of nine ranging from 6 to 84 so quite a challenge to accommodate all our needs. I did quite a lot of research to make sure we had all the ingredients to enjoy our time together. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived and experienced the wow factor our stay was one of luxury and first class service. We had our own speedboat, chef and housekeeper. Use of a Mercedes and a driver. It was more like staying in a private hotel with just us as guests. I could write for pages saying how wonderful it was. We have stayed in many wonderful locations and hotels but this exceeded all our expectations. The staff were so lovely, kind, helpful etc. they worked tirelessly for us and could not be faulted. The villa represents tremendous value for money. I am happy to answer any questions.
