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; 8 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.

It is only 15 minutes away to the picturesque Yildiz Park, which is one of the largest urban parks in Istanbul. Here you can enjoy the spectacular view of Istanbul with a picnic bag. Just 5 minutes walking distance to Abbasağa Park, 3 minutes to World Peace Park and Ihlamur Pavillion, you can take a deep breath of oxygen and relax in this green district.
This makes it the perfect spot for a visitor to the city to stay.

This cute room on the second floor of this duplex flat contains functional furniture such as a very comfy single bed, a wardrobe with a hanger inside, study desk and chair, a desk lamp, a drawer unit, a bedside lamp and a cosy seating. 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 barbeque. 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 barbeque.

Internet/wifi is available. All of the bills are included in the price (electricy/water/internet/gas).
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 a great host and her home is just like the pictures. The upstairs where her guests stay is like a separate apartment with its own kitchen, bathroom and balcony with amazing views! Thank so much Başak

This is not my first time I preferred Başak's Place in Beşiktaş. She is the best guess you can find in İstanbul, as her tidy, disciplined works and detailed designed room met your all demands. everything pictured in the website and descriptions were exactly the same, so I would recommend Başak's all places to those who are looking not a room but a warm-house in İnstanbul. thanks başak

Basak was a very welcoming host. She is very open minded and helpful. Upon my arrival, she helped with the direction for the taxi driver to find the apartment. Later that evening there was even a dinner organized with friends at a local restaurant. She also gave me great information and tips about Istanbul. It was definitely an advantage to have lived with the proprietress. The other WG residents were very nice. I was able to socialize and make new friends in Istanbul immediately. The apartment is very clean. It is located in an area full of young people. Besiktas is definitely a very interesting place, central, safe and easily accessible to all modes of transport. Basak war eine sehr zuvorkommende Gastgeberin. Sie ist sehr offen und hilfsbereit. An meinem Anreisetag hat sie den Taxifahrer zur Wohnung gelots. Am Abend hat es dann einen gemeinsames Abendessen mit Freunden gegeben. Zusätzlich habe ich gute Tipps über Istanbul von ihr erhalten. Es ist auf jeden Fall ein Vorteil gewesen, mit der Eigentümerin in einem Haus gewohnt zu haben. Auch die anderen WG Bewohner waren sehr Nett. So habe ich auf Anhieb neue soziale Kontakte im Istanbul knüpfen können. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber. Zudem liegt sie in einem Viertel mit vielen Jungen Menschen. Von Besiktas aus sind alle Sehenswerten Orte sehr leicht und schnell zu erreichen. Die Wohngegend ist sicher.

Staying in Idil and Basak’s flat in Besiktas is the best. The apartment is great - it is big with nice rooms and common areas (kitchen and living room) where you can hang out with your flat mates. It was as they described to me and as I saw on pictures. The location of the apartment is also very good. Besiktas is a nice area that I will recommend to live in and it is easy to get here with public transportation. Idil and Basak are great hosts, always friendly and helpful with everything and they have given great recommendation on where to go etc. Thank you so much, Idil and Basak, for letting me stay in your apartment from where I enjoy Istanbul in the best possible way :-)
