About our home

Our 2 bed-room + study apartment in a 2-year old modern building built under the new earthquake safety regulation has a beautifully furnished living room, bedrooms, kitchen and a small balcony that overlooks a lively street. The living room has beautiful antique furniture. The bedrooms have a queen bed and a double bed with lots of closet space. The apartment is located in one of the nicest districts on the Asian side of Istanbul, 20 minute walk to the shore with parks, and walking and biking trails alongside a long pier from where you can take boat trips to the European side of Istanbul and to the Princess Islands. It is also 10- minute walk to the nicest shopping and dining district (Bagdat street) of the Asian side of Istanbul. The apartment is also a 5 minute walk to the recently built metro hub which takes you to almost anywhere you like within the city, including the European side of Istanbul.
