my sister is travelling to Izmir in April for some dental treatment and I am going with her and will we be staying 3 weeks.
We have stayed in the Mini hotel in the past and found it great, but more suited to a few nights rather than 3 weeks. Also, there will be days where she just will want to veg out and read a book or watch a DVD, so for comfort we were thinking to hire a short term let on an apartment.
I know that with Izmir being a large city and not a tourist only destination, that there are not many holiday lets of this sort. We were thinking to book an actual proper apartment for 1 month and pay utilities etc. I can speak Turkish and have had a look on milliyet emlak and a few others, but there are very few furnished apartments available. I know we could book a room in a hotel for the first few nights and then look around, but we would rather know where we are staying before hand. I have also contacted some emlakci with enquiries, but have not had many responses.
We are looking for something in the Cigli or Karsiyaka areas, fully furnished, for a 1 month let for the month of April 2013 in the region of 1000-1200 TYL.
If anyone has any tips or can recommend a particular emlak, or better yet, if you know someone who might be interested in renting an apartment for a few weeks, please can you let me know?
