Think of a space that is sophisticated, understated, comfortable and cosy, with wonderful objects from around the world and peaceful, very quiet yet very lively made with personality and soul.

The space

Please enjoy your stay in this relaxing and spacious flat in the heart of the charming and friendly neighborhood Beşiktaş.
Beşiktaş is a central, vibrant but not noisy neighborhood; 12 min walk from the central market and seaside, with a great selection of cafes, restaurants, bars, local shops. It is famous for its Fish Market during the day.

This is a 210 m2, fully furnished and fully equipped duplex flat on the 5th floor of a building. There are two bedrooms, one kitchen and one bathroom at each floor.
This floor holds a huge terrace, a bathroom, a kitchen, one single and one double bedroom.

The stairs to the upper floor is from the living room downstairs. Therefore, the living room is a shared area for all the residents of the duplex flat.
The entrance of the flat is a common entrance; all the guests use the same entrance on the floor downstairs.

You can chill out in the huge living room and read our various selections of magazines and books. You can watch movies on the TV. You can also savor the moments in front of the fireplace. There is just a lot to do in this flat.

A short walk of 10 minutes leads you to the ferry ports, the bus stop and other major transportation vehicles. From the ferry ports, in 5 minutes, you can end up in the Asian part of Istanbul. With a bus, in 10 minutes you can find yourself in Taksim or in Levent (the business area of the city and the best shopping malls with lots of high street brands and movie theaters). Local supermarkets and the local bazaar (every Saturday! fresh fruits, vegetables and also clothing!) is just a couple of minutes away.

Guest access

This lovely room on the second floor of this duplex flat contains functional furniture such as a very comfy double bed, a wardrobe with a hanger inside, a dresser, a study desk, a table lamp, a shelf and a cosy sofa. This bed has a base where you can put away your big loads of baggage. The major feature of this room is the access to the terrace. This floor holds a 40 m2 terrace with an open city and park view with a reception of direct sunlight. The terrace includes a table and chairs and a barbecue. You can have breakfast and dinner here; spend your day while enjoying your coffee and the sunset and read. The terrace is shared only with the bedroom next door.
**Please confirm with us first if you want to use the barbecue.
Internet/wifi is available. All of the bills are included in the price (electricy/water/internet/gas). And once a week cleaning, routinely!

Interaction with guests

I provide fresh linens and towels. Rooms also have keys for maximum privacy. Keys to the room and the flat will be given upon your arrival, so please let me know about your arrival details and I will do my best to make your visit as comfortable as possible! I would also be happy to help you with recommendations about what to do, where to go and how to!

PS: The apartment is located on the fifth floor and there is no elevator. So sorry!

Thank you and enjoy your stay in this marvelous city!

Basak was an exemplary host and definitely contributed to making my visit to Istanbul one to remember. The week before arriving Basak provided me with a welcome pack which contained everything from house rules, transportation advice, info about the location and her contact info. She provided advice and suggestions on a range of subjects from local cafe's, bars, navigation and general city pro-tips. The actual apartment itself was wonderful. The other roommates were awesome as Basak does a great job of keeping compatibility in mind while selecting guests. The neighborhood that it's located in, Beşiktas, was probably my favorite neighborhood that I visited during my entire month stay in Istanbul. A vibrant progressive neighborhood with endless quaint cafes, restaurants and bars makes it a go-to spot for tourists and locals alike.

Basak was a very welcoming host, offered to and did speak with the cab driver to explain the road to get me to the apartment on arrival. She made sure I knew how all nooks and crannies of the apartment worked. The listing was accurate but she didn't mention before I arrived that I would be sharing the apartment with two other men. I tried to be cool with it but eventually found somewhere else. However, the apartment is nice, clean. and situated in a young and happening area. Transportation is a few streets of stairs away, so make sure you can handle walking. Also make sure you clarify what kind of stay you want. Basak is open to questions.

Basak is so nice. We arrived very early at 7am. The taxi driver didn't know the direction so we had to wake her up and ask for help. She provided maps and guide books for Istanbul and gave us tips for travelling. I really appreciate that she helped us to arrange taxi and bargained at the fee with the drivers. Her house is clean and tidy. The room is so lovely with a big terrace.

Our stay with Basak was great. She was a super host, welcoming, friendly and helpful, and the room had everything we needed for a long weekend in Istanbul, when you need a nice and comfy place to crash and have breakfast in. We would definitely recommend this for others going to Istanbul.

Idil and Basak were great hosts and the apartment is very beautiful and very well located. Besiktas is a great neighborhood, not so touristic but very lively with nice bars and restaurants around. We had a great stay and definitely recommend this charming place.
