The full equipped apartment located in the heritage district of Istanbul, colorful Tarlabaşı. If you are looking for a place where you really want to taste the chaos with harmony like a real Istanbuller you are very welcome to stay in my apartment.
My name is Aybike. I love to travel, to discover new places and to meet new people. I will be glad to hosting you in Istanbul at my place. My apartment is newly renovated, clean, cosy, comfortable, large enough for 8 people and is situated literally at the heart of Istanbul. Apartment has one of the unique examples of turn-of-the-century Levantine architecture in Turkey: slim, four-storey bow-fronted homes that huddle along winding, narrow streets.
Located in a street as it was used to be; the ground floors often served as stores or workshops.

As a traveller my wish is to make you feel at home; drink your morning coffee while listening to the sound of Istanbul then take your map, jump into the street with friendly neighborhood, and enjoy the city without running, walking, exploring, watching, reading and hearing. I know how it is important to be able to feel the city you are visiting. So if you are looking for a place where you really want to taste the chaos with harmony like a real Istanbuller you are very welcome to stay in my apartment.
First of all you will have access to everything in the apartment. The apartment is on the first floor. There are three bedrooms; two has double bed and one has a sofa bed for two people. In the living room there is a TV, a wooden dining table with four chairs and a corner sofa bed (for two people). In the kitchen there are dishes, glasses, pans, cutlery, fridge, kettle, microwave, coffee machine and a teapot. Coffee and tea will be avaliable for you. There is a bathroom with shower, towels, shampoo, soap, toilet paper, hair dryer and of course hot water:) Iron and ironing board, a washing machine and an air-conditioner avaliable. There is a balcony where you can smoke (please not in the apartment). Wifi and clean bed linen will be ready for you.
I will always respect your privacy. If you book the entire apartment I will bring you the keys on the day of your arrival and will take them from you on the day you leave or you can leave them at home on the table:)
However, if it is possible for both of us, we can always have a walk or drink coffee/tea/beer.
For any sort of problem like technical or just a trip advise you can always call and ask for help.
There are several ways to get from the airport to the apartment, but the most convenient manner is to take “HAVATAŞ" shuttle to Taksim Square departing every 30 minutes from the airport (from both airports- Atatürk and Sabiha Gökçen). As you may be unfamiliar with the area, I am happy to come and pick you up in front of Galatasaray Highschool (on Istiklal Street) which is 10 minutes walk from Taksim Square where you will get off. I can always advise you cheaper public transport options if you ask for.
You can rent the apartment/room for (a) day(s), week, month or longer periods of time.
There is various supermarkets conveniently situated a block away from the apartment on the way to Istiklal street, also a small kiosk right next to the apartment and a laundry in 100 meters distance.
• Please lock the doors and close the windows when you leave the flat.
• Please don´t change the heat controller settings.
• Please be respectful to the neighbors regarding noise levels.
• If you are a smoker please smoke by the window or at the balcony
Welcome to your home!
