Chic Condo, Central, Great Bosphorus View
The apartment is situated on the European side of Istanbul in a vibrant neighborhood with shopping centers, banks, restaurants, beauty salons within walking distance.
The quiet apartment located on the 10th floor is situated in a nice middle-clas …
We (2 adults and 3 elementary school age children) recently stayed at this property for 10 days. I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to stay at a quiet but centrally located furnished apartment in Istanbul. Akatlar, Etiler and Ulus are all within walking distance. The posh Etiler/Nisbetiye Caddesi with high-end restaurants is a 10 minute walk away. It's very easy to get to (by car) the FSM Boshoprus Bridge, Bebek/Rumelihisari/Boshporus, Istinye Park Mall, Sisli/Nisantasi, Besiktas/Kabatas. Grand Bazaar/Topkapi Palace area is 30 mins away ($15 cab ride), The listing description and the photos accurately describe the rental's location, appearance and amenities. The property was very clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and responsive in her communication (via phone and e-mail). There's an on-site superintendent for any emergencies but we didn't need his help. There is a taxi stop right next to the apartment building. Within minutes of walking distance are 2 neighborhood grocery stores, multiple bakeries, hairdressers, a bookstore, casual and fast dining restaurants, etc.
This is one of the best places that I have ever rented. A family business, the owner is a great lady very helpful and the apartment is clean and comfy. Great view, and very quiet. There is a very courteous and polite handy man named Ahmet who will solve any problem should they occur, and Aysin herself is delightful. Will definitely stay here again. If you wanted to get there from the Ataturk Airport, just take the subway directly from airport to Zeytinburnu, change to Kabatas, and hop on the 58A which will drop you in front of the apartment at Bahar Besitis station (one after Zeytinoglu). There is a Taxi station right behind the building and supermarkets and a bakery (don't miss the fresh bun in the morning) enjoy your stay!

Our stay at this incredible property was beyond our expectations. The unit is tastefully decorated, well-equipped, and was very comfortable for our four family members who came to join us in celebrating our son's wedding. While some may think its location 45 minutes by public transportation northeast of the Old Town area of Istanbul is a disadvantage, we found it to be a perfect blend of a retreat after enjoying tourist activities yet very vibrant with its location surrounded by shops, parks, restaurants, and wonderful residents. Akmerkez Mall is an easy 10 minute walk away, a superb city park is the same, and bus stops and taxi stands are at your doorstep. But the best aspect of this rental unit is its view of the Bosphorus, the Asian side of Istanbul, and the 'Second Bridge.' Being on the top floor of this 10 story building gives unobstructed views to a vast portion of the area.
We highly recommend to anyone wanting a home away from home to enjoy Aysin's condo and her tremendous hospitality. She, her family, and the caretaker are responsive and want only for you to have a fabulous stay. No doubt we will want to rent again from her and have let others we know traveling to this amazing destination that they must experience this housing option and area.
We loved this apartment. It was extremely clean and well appointed. The rooms were spacious, and the three bedrooms (one small) afforded lots of privacy. The the view of the Bosphorus, especially from the master bedroom, was wonderful. The owner had taken pains to make sure that we had all we needed to settle in, and we appreciated not having to buy paper goods and other staples for the kitchen. The neighborhood has lots of shops and restaurants, and while there is no Metro stop in Etiler, it's easy to get to the Levent station by bus or taxi. It's pleasantly away from touristic areas and would be great for someone doing business in Levent or Maslak or for an extended stay. I would definitely stay here again.
To all voyagers tourists STOP here and read please ,my review may seem long but YOU deserve give it sometime...Dear ALL i am supposed to write a review here..but believe me if you experienced what this apartment meant to my family and me,you wouldn't call it a review but memories,LOVELY memories
My family and i intend to make it part of our life-if GOD wills-to go and stay at this amazing apartment!
1st,All Istanbul is in this apartment from windows: gardens,mountain, the sea, famous fabulous Bosphorus bridge,on sight forrests.
For 3 years i searched for apartments in istanbul & read all reviews,until we saw this one and it was newly put for rent.I thought from pictures that it could be ok but on real it was GREAT.The apartment is very nice&comfortable&clean. The nice lady Aysin prepared all kinds of (detargents),cleaning stuff and shampoo, coffee ect.
I stayed with my husband ,daughter and son for one month then we extended another month because we loved Istanbul & felt at home at the apartment
Our only fear was that it might not be near attractions like Taksim or Sultanahmet area, but from our experience trust me it is NO problem,DON’T waste this lovely apartment for this reason,hence there is directly under the building a bus station one bus takes u to Kabatash &from Kabatash it is easy to go to hundreds of places,if u take the Tram it takes u to many attractions all old bazaars,to all historical places, even to some special daily bazaars.Moreover from kabatash u can also take a ferryboat to the Asian part of Istanbul,either to Uskudar or to Kadikoy both Ferryboat Stations are there,or u can go on a lovely sea trip to the Princess' Island from Kadikoy Iskelesi(station) in Kabatash or u can take the boat which makes the Bosphorus Trip,AMAZING ,u can go to all these places just by taking bus 58A from under building and for MALLS lovers bus 59A takes u to nice malls on top CEVAHIR MALL.
If you prefere metros on buses u take a taxi from down the building to Levent metro station which takes u to taksim & to kabatash & many other places,a taxi would take u to Emirgan Park it is near do not miss it.
I would have to say to lovely Aysin(the host) , we are glad to have met u. We hope that your apartment will be rented all year long,but please do not forget us your friends, keep a place for us this year.
Finally if u took this apartment u r too lucky, Enjoy Enjoy !Unfortunately characters reached a limit or else I have a lot to say about the apartment.
