Perched above a sheltered bay on the Kas peninsula, with direct access to the sea, Gunbatimi is one of a pair of exceptional private villas, known collectively as the Lighthouse Lofts. The views from this location are breathtakingly lovely, artfully framed by floor-to-ceiling windows and the craggy headlands guarding the mouth of the bay.
Each Loft is entirely independent of its neighbour, with its own pool, grounds and swimming platform.
Gunbatimi has three bedrooms; the master looks out to sea from a wide, glass-fronted gallery above the open-plan living space, whilst a second double and a smaller twin open directly on the pool terrace, with similarly mesmerising views. Extra-high ceilings and walls of glass open the entire light-filled space onto the aquamarine of the infinity pool and the sea below.
Conservation laws are in place to preserve the natural beauty of this area, so the grounds have been left pretty much untamed, save for stone steps leading down to a swimming platform for easy access to the sea. The peninsula creates a deep sheltered inlet, where turtles swim and dolphins arc playfully through the waves, as though calling you to come and join. It’s an idyllic spot for swimming, snorkelling or simply watching the sleek yachts and traditional gulets gliding over the bay.
Combining ancient remains with a smart modern marina, the charming harbour town of Kaş is authentically Turkish with a cosmopolitan twist, attracting both local and international visitors with its faintly Bohemian atmosphere that appeals to families and couples alike. Kaş is arguably the most vibrant place on the magnificent Turquoise Coast, so we are delighted to add Gunbatimi to the collection, available either by itself or as a pair with Ayisigi to accommodate a group of up to 12.

We had a truly wonderful holiday! Such a stunning location with views that are hard to beat! This is our third Simpson holiday – booked for their attention to detail and they certainly haven’t let us down! Swimming off the sea platform at sunset is beautiful. Overall we loved our holiday and we are sad to be returning to a cold, and no doubt wet, Scotland.
Had a great week in this villa – stunning views, even during a thunderstorm!
We had a fantastic holiday. The private transfers were excellent, the Villa was also excellent and as described. A real bonus was the complimentary water for the water cooler which meant we weren’t lugging bottled water back from the supermarket. The standard of cleaners was very high and it was lovely to have fresh linen twice a week. Overall, and as usual, a fabulous holiday experience from Simpson.
Fantastic villa! Even better views! The whole family absolutely loved our 2-week stay in Kaş. Morning swims in the sea, turtle spotting and pool chilling! Kaş is a joy. Lots of cool bars and live music ‘hidden away’. Two nostalgic trips to Kalkan, one for a delightful Turkish hammam. Simpson recommended restaurants are brilliant. The extended breakfast at the Olive Garden is a must. Loved our stay in Kaş.
A superb villa with excellent facilities and fantastic view; particularly enjoyed time by the pool as the sun went down, magical!
Fortunate to have spent two weeks enjoying the stunning views and sunshine. Many delicious meals in Kas – we ate out every night and had only one disappointing meal. A trip to the sunken villa is definitely worth it. A fabulous family holiday. Many memories made.
Stunning villa, spectacular views! The owner Turan was lovely. Very helpful and sorted out minor problems as soon as we mentioned them. We enjoyed eating down at the marina - a very picturesque setting and a little calmer and easier to park than the hustle and bustle of Kas. Hopefully we'll be back.
Wonderful week in a beautiful villa. The family particularly loved the swimming platform and sea access. A great surprise to find so many restaurants within an easy walk, and of course, plenty more in Kas! Very lovely day on a private boat trip in the next bay, lunch as well. A really relaxing day and well looked after by the owners.
We absolutely loved staying at Lighthouse Loft. Breathtaking views that you were permanently immersed in due to the stunning contemporary architecture and layout of the villa. It felt super special and luxurious with every detail carefully considered. We also loved having our own access to the sea which allowed us to spend a good portion of our time swimming in the most beautiful sea we have ever experienced. The location is good - not too far from Kas which we enjoyed as feeling slightly more ‘real’ than some of the other resorts. Lots of nice places to eat and a nice atmosphere especially in the evening. We’ve used Simpson accommodation a number of times over the last 15 years and they’ve never disappointed but this holiday was probably our best yet! Highly recommend.
Lighthouse Loft Gunbatimi is a modern, ‘state of the art’ villa which has been extremely well planned and enjoys exceptional views.
Excellent holiday at Loft House villa Gunbatimi. Total relaxation from start to finish. Our local concierge (Zeze Sertas) was highly knowledgable and provided some great tips that made the stay extra special. Felt very well taken care of throughout our stay. #Bliss!!
Our choice of Turkey properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.
To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
A long-time favourite of artists and artisans, this bohemian coastal town is a picture of meandering streets, vibrant bazaars and end-of-day drinks on the palm-lined esplanade. Beyond the simple pleasures of lovely beaches and ancient ruins, the local area also accommodates a more active spirit with scuba diving, horseriding, climbing and canyoning among the spectacular Taurus Mountains.
Kaş is also a walker's dream, with the Lycian Way (listed by The Times as one of the World's Top Ten Walks) on your doorstep – a different way to delve into the history of this undeniably romantic destination.
