    Reviews

      the flat in a nice area , very family oriented area . there is Taxi's stand next to the building . the metro is not that close . plus to take a cab to the metro and then take 2 metro to take u where u r going is pain in the neck . just take the cab and make sure they have their meter on . u end up paying the same thing or even less. now the flat in my opinion need a new beds for all 3 bedrooms . my 16 years old slept in the pull out bed and he kept saying that something about it keep making him up . me and my 9 years old shared the bed in the 2nd bedroom to tell u the truth it was so painful and we were living on advil from our back pain . the mattres is not even . its lumpy from the middle and not even with the sides . u feel u t rolling out of bed . my 9 years old dropped 4 times from the bed cuz of this issue . the 3rd bedroom have folding mattress that was used by my 14 years old . she was not having good time with the top where she puts her head as it was wood so there was a worn out baby mattress behind the folding mattress and we used it on top of the wood area . that made it even worse cuz she have that area higher than the rest of her body. the bathrooms were not cleaned good when we arrived , my kids refused to use any until i cleaned both bathrooms . by the 3rd night i hired the cleaning lady to come and clean the flat . the kitchen have everything u need . i did not cook at all but we did have breakfast and late snacks. there is a mall nearby like 10 min walk the mall was a must lunch place for us every day . the food was good and super clean . Oya is super nice lady and was very helpful before our arrival . i would recommend this place again if i know for a fact there is new beds in all 3 bedrooms .
      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this well equipped, nicely decorated condo in a wonderful area of Istanbul. While some may think being 45 minutes (via public transportation) away from the Old Town area is a disadvantage, we and our family members found it to be a comfortable retreat after tourist activities. With Akmerkez Mall an easy 10 minute walk away, a superb city part the same, shops, restaurants, bus and taxis stands at your doorstep, we found Oya's unit to be in the perfect location for all that we wanted to do. The best part is certainly the views from this condo. You have virtually a panoramic window to the entire Istanbul area including the Asian side, a great deal of the Bosphorus, the 'Second Bridge,' and all in between. This unit is suited for families including small children and Oya and the building's caretakers ensure that you have a hassle-free stay. I highly recommend that anyone coming to Istanbul should consider this condo for their accommodations. Raleigh, NC

      Oya was great to work with and very prompt with emails and easy to reach on the phone. She held the dates open for us as we were finalizing our plans and promised to let us know first if someone else requested to reserve those dates. We enjoyed our 10-day stay in the apartment. The location was great for us because we had been to IST many times and did not need to do intense sight-seeing. The distance from major tourist attractions may not be long but because of traffic it can take one hour or more to reach those places. It is best to use ferries, trams and metro in IST as much as possible to avoid street traffic that will slow and often completely stop cabs/buses. Metro system is not extensive. Cabdrivers can take you for a longer than needed ride even if you know the way (they will claim construction as the reason for detour). The place was clean and comfortable. The AC was much appreciated during our August stay. The neighborhood is urban and upscale with several supermarkets, bakeries and a few restaurants. We enjoyed the Artists park nearby. The full bath was nicely renovated. The kitchen was nice, very functional and had everything we needed. The bedrooms were on the small side but enough for us. The smallest bedroom does not have a bed but a fold-out (on the floor) foam couch. Having a futon instead would be a nice improvement. Also, having heavy drapes or shades in the bedrooms to block the morning light could help those who are easily awakened by light. The full dining table was good to have but the smaller chairs in the living room were worn and not that comfortable. Overall a very nice and peaceful place in a nice residential neighborhood for longer stays for larger groups and families.
      We were thrilled with this condo. Very spacious and clean. Wonderful views of Istanbul and the Bosphorus. The owner helped us to arrange for transportation from the airport, which I highly recommend. We did most of our local travel by taxi, and had no trouble finding one right outside our front door.I would highly recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to Istanbul. Hope to come back one day.
      We stayed in this apartment for a month and wished we coul have stayed longer .It is exactly as described and shown in the pictures,very clean with all the modern amenities. A specious living and dining area with big picture windows to admire the awesome views. Three bedrooms,one and a half bathrooms. Big modern and well stocked kitchen has a dishwasher,garbage disposal and all the necessary cooking utensils. Brand new big batroom has a new washer and dryer with instructions prepared by the owner. Location is in one of the best neighborhoods of Istanbul,safe and friendly. There are small shops across the street for all your daily needs.Taxis are just around the corner. Upscale AKMERKEZ MALL is 5-7 minutes walk away.In the Mall most of Turkey"s well known stores,MACRO supermarket and a delightful FOOD COURT on the top floor serving good Turkish Food at reasonable prices including our favorite kebab restaurant GUNAYDIN. Good transportation available to get to The Historic District of Istanbul. AKBIL Transit Card is good for all modes of public transportation,can be purchased at the news stands in the neighborhood. Taxis are very reasonable in Istanbul compared to the other big cities in Europe. A five minute taxi ride tales you to LEVENT Metro Station. Bus #58A stops across the street (Bahar Sitesi Stop), takes you to KABATAS from where you can take the Metrobus to the Historic District and the Grand Bazaar. On the way back it drops you off in front of the aparment. It is a convenient way to come home to a quiet and pleasant apartment,after the crowds and the noise of the city. Turkish people are very friendly and helpful. Most young people speak english. Don't hesitate to ask for help. A short taxi ride will take you down to our favorite town Bebek by the Bosphorus to enjoy the walk by the sea and cafes and seafood restaurants. Apartment has a flat screen TV with 170 Channels including English ones. Owner is very nice to deal with. She has thought of every detail to make us feel at home.Our sincere thanks to her. We travel frequently and this apartment by far the best one we have rented. We recommend it to anyone without hesitation. Oya and Bulent Eken,Florida
      What a fantastic condo, in an equally fantastic city! Have only been home for a week now, and already miss it terribly....I need a kebab fix soon! The owner of this condo, Oya, was so helpful from first contact to the lovely thank you note I just got in the mail today. Just a pleasure to work with. She took the time to help me with my itinerary, and gave great advice about some of the don't-miss-off-the-tourist-radar sights. The condo is a good size (I am guessing 1200 sq ft?). The rooms are a good size, and the beds comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and super clean. The washer/dryer is a nice bonus. The dryer takes a long time to dry anything (ventless) so I just hung up my wet clothes and they were dry overnight. The kitchen is very well appointed, although I only ever used the tea kettle, toaster, and microwave. The living area is stylish, and there are floor to ceiling windows with sweeping views of the city. Especially pretty at night. WIFI works GREAT! A real plus when away from home for so long. I encourage any visitor to Istanbul to learn and use the comprehensive public transit system. It is very modern and clean and safe. Istanbulites are so polite! I was offered a seat on the subway many, many times...from teenagers no less! When does that ever happen in the US? Never...that's when! I bought a Transit Pass on the first day. It is valid on all public transport in the city (subway, trams, busses, ferries, funiculars). It saved me hundreds of dollars on taxis. Taxis are plentiful in the city, and the ones that gather at the little taxi stand next to the condo building were all very honest...however, BEWARE of taxis in the touristy old town area! Make sure they turn on the meter. Make sure you have SOME idea of the distance you are about to travel. Make sure you get them to acknowledge the denomination of the bill you are about to give them when it is time to pay. All of these things were a problem for me...but only when in the tourist part of town. You just have to be a smart traveler and pay attention. No need to be obnoxious...just saavy. Friendly neighborhood with lots of little family run shops, as well as a big, splashy, upscale shopping mall a few blocks away. A really cute little park next door...a great place for a stroll during afternoon and evening call to prayer from the little mosque nearby. Traffic is less after dark, so nice and quiet in the condo. I could go on and on! No more characters left!
      I travel extensively, and usually for weeks and sometimes months at a time. For the last several years I have been using VRBO to find a place in whatever city I am headed to. With mixed results. I can say without hesitation that this condo in Istanbul was by far my favorite. The location is ideal for sightseeing. Close to the major sights and yet in an authentic neighborhood that feels like the real Istanbul....not in a tourist-trap area. Great little restaurants, bakeries, mosques, a little park, helpful locals, upscale/sophisticated shopping very close-by as well as friendly little "mom-and-pop" shops all along the street. The condo is on the top floor of a ten-story building, the views are expansive (floor to ceiling windows). The building is well cared for, and the doorman Ahmet is just as nice as he can be...always a pleasure to come home to a smiling face after a long day of sightseeing. I never once heard any noise from any of the neighbors, so the building is obviously well insulated and quiet. The condo itself has a great layout. Views from every window, and the bedrooms are a good size with very comfortable beds (Temporpedic mattresses?). The main bathroom is very modern. Great water pressure in the shower...a nice surprise, and not always a given in a higher floor apartment. I really only used the kitchen to make coffee in the morning, but it looked to be very well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, utensiles, etc. I would encourage any visitor to Istanbul to familiarize themselves with the very comprehensive, ultra clean, very safe, and modern public transport. I bought a "Transit Pass" card on my first day, and it ended up saving me literally hundreds of dollars in taxi fares. It is good for the ferries, subway, funiculars, tramways, and busses. The nearest subway stop, Levent, is about a ten minute walk from the condo (all downhill). Of course coming home was all uphill, but I just jumped in a taxi and for about $4.00 got dropped off right at the front door of the building. BEWARE taking taxis anywhere in the Old Town tourist area, or from the airport! The only problem I ever encountered during my whole time in Istanbul was unscrupulous cab drivers. Also, the traffic is soo bad in Istanbul that taking the subway usually takes about half the time and costs a fraction of a cab ride. Oya was just a pleasure to work with, and the most helpful VRBO owner I have ever encountered. Thank you for everything Oya! Tesekkur Edime! Angus
      Oya is the perfect hostess and knows what creature comforts are needed to make her apartment a home-away-from-home. The clean, spacious and tastefully decorated rooms are usurped only by the amazing views, especially from the living room picture window. Her tips for private tour guides and driver were much appreciated as were the guidebooks in the apartment's library. Most of the tourist sites are in the high pitched bustle of the city center. To get there, we had to put up with severe traffic congestion and confusing transition points on the crowded public transportation system. The return trade-off for the commute downtown is the tranquility of this near suburb. There are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance of the apartment, including a big indoor shopping mall.
