“a cosy place to enjoy”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Since this was our first trip to Istanbul we appreciated Ozkans offer to organise a pick up service from the airport. Everything went smoothly - the magic of an Istanbul driver was a first experience. The house was as described, very beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed the view of the Golden Horn from the balcony an marvelled about the living conditions of our neighbours. We walked a lot and saw a lot and in the evening it was always calming to come back to our home. Ozkan was a friendly host and walking around in the neighbourhood felt safe all the time. We would recommend this house to everyone who looks for an authentic Istanbul experience. To my surprise we were awakened by the crow of a cock, which I wouldn't have expected in a city of plenty millions...Thank you Ozkan and Peter!

“Perfect choice”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you are looking for a please to really capture the multicultural atmosphere in Istanbul this is it. All the tourist spots are within easy reach by walking or public transport and yet when you are staying here you don't feel like the average tourist. This place is a mix of old and new, rich and poor, east and west. Stay here if you want to get a taste of the real Istanbul.

“See and feel the Istanbul of a local”

Do you like to visit exotic locations and get the real feel of a local? I highly recommend this vacation home. Close to a restaurants and cafe's. Close to the a main road artery to the old Istanbul center which includes the Grand Bazaar, the Blue Mosque, the Spice Bazaar, the ferry service, the Galata Bridge. Walking to these areas will also take you through neighbourhoods that you would never see on an organized tour. The tram, and ferries are easy to use, but make sure you have a map to plan your trips.The home has all the needs of a traveller, including a balcony where you can see the Golden Horn. The kitchen is fully functional with a stove, fridge and dishwasher. The clothes washer and drier is easy to use. I would have to say that the best attribute of this rental is the location.

“Lovely hosts make a lovely trip!”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

Extremely welcoming hosts made our visit at Istanbul very enjoyable. Gave us directions and help with the public transportation as they handed us the keys to the building. Which made things much easier as our stay was short and we would not have had enough time to get accustomed to the public transport and hit the usual spots. They performed well above simply fulfilling their duties as hosts and tried their best to make our trip as convenient and enjoyable as possible.

Accommodation was as advertised, clean and really worth the money we paid. Definitely would recommend to anyone that will be visiting the lovely country.

Much love from Malaysia!
