About our home

Welcome to our quiet, sunny sanctuary in beautiful Istanbul. Our place is ideally located in the heart of fashionable Kadikoy, yet on a quiet, leafy street. Enjoy a quiet morning breakfast on our balcony overlooking a small oasis of trees and local bird life. A short walk brings you to the region's famous eat streets, underground metro, ferry and bus exchange that quickly takes you to any corner of Istanbul. Popular tourist attractions are a stunning ferry ride away.

The apartment is stylish, gorgeously newly renovated and equipped with all amenities. The kitchen easily accommodates home cooking with an oven, microwave, stove top, cooking utensils, dishwasher and fridge. It is our home too when we are in Istanbul so it is equipped for long stays.

The marble bathroom features a soothing large shower head, towel warming rack, and clothes washing machine. The back balcony also features a clothes dryer. Towels, bed linen and slippers are provided.
