Our two roomed apartment on the middle floor in a renovated old Greek building located in Elmadağ, a safe and calm neighborhood near Taksim square might be just what you need!

What is unique about our apartment is the historical touch familiar to Istanbul, something we strived to keep while renovating and furnishing. The hard wooden floors, high ceilings, wooden shutters, the bay window, high white wooden doors, and the lace curtains will make you feel the old Istanbul feeling as you enter. This way, you will be a traveller even resting at home!

The apartment has two rooms and each can be slept. You'll have a double bed in the bedroom and two very comfortable IKEA double sofa beds in the living room. So, the apartment has a capacity of six. If your group is larger, please note that we have two more apartments in the same building.

The apartment has all kind of amenities you may need; including refrigerator, French press, stove, kettle in the kitchen; jacuzzi, hair dryer, shampoo, soap and toilet paper in the bathroom, TV, satellite receiver and wireless Internet in the living room and clean linens, sheets and towels in the bedrooms. You'll also have access to the combi heater, washing machine, and iron, commonly used by all the three apartments.

One thing worth to mention is that the jacuzzi is located at the bedroom, and not at the bathroom. Pictures show it in the corridor, but we have just moved it following our guests' remarks.

There is a huge garden on the rear side, to which the apartment owes its silent and cool atmosphere. And thanks to the huge date palm tree in the garden, you will not feel any need for a technological cooling system, but nature will take care of this for you! The living room already has an air conditioner, and if you need one in the bedroom, let me know and I will provide one for you.

You will not have access to the garden, but the branches and the leaves of our beautiful date palm tree touch the windows, creating a sweet smell in the bedroom, something I'm sure you'll love waking up in the mornings. And you can easily reach and take those sweet fruits coming from the heaven.

The building is located in Harbiye, a calm and safe neighborhood near Taksim square. Hilton Hotel is only 3-4 and Taxim square is only within a 10-15 minute walking distance, which (as you should know if you are planning to come to Istanbul) is the artistic and cultural centre of the city with its cafes, restaurants, bars, wine houses, night clubs, theaters and movie theaters. And you can get to Sultanahmet, the historical town within 10-15 minutes if you take a taxi, which is the same with Bosphorus. And on the intersecting street called Babil, you can find everything you may need from the markets to butchers, restaurants to bakeries, laundries to buffets.

If you would like to spend your holiday in a place reflecting the culture and history of Istanbul itself, this place is ideal for you.

Hope you'll have a great time in our beloved city!
House rules

- The main door has a deadlock, yet try not to use it, as the other guests cannot let themselves in if you can't hear the bell ring, which is a mobile one!
- You can put the garbage next to the main door. Cats love to tear & play with the garbage bags, so please put them in the evening, as the pickers will come and take them around 10 pm. Municipality abandoned the garbage cans, as they can cause unbearable odor, so please put them just on the street.
- Cats visiting the garden love to enter the house and they can be real nuisance. So, in the bedroom, please only open the windows with wire.
- The combi heater heating the water and radiators are placed on the first floor. In any case that you don't have hot water or the radiators are not working, the guests may have turned it off accidentally. In such a case, tell the guests on the ground floor to turn it on or directly contact me.
- The jacuzzi and kitchen surely have hot water, but the tap in the bathroom does not. It would cost a fortune to change the whole system of the building, so I could not.

Villa at the Heart of Istanbul

Great stay at Asli´s place and a really good host even though I didn´t get the chance to meet in person.

Asli contacted and welcomed me directly after making the reservation and from there on we had a conversation where I got all answers I needed with very short notice. She could help us with pretty much everything I asked for, a baby cot included, and i felt very confident all the time. We actually got the keys to the house, from the owner of the grocery store cross the street, before leaving the taxi from the airport.

The house is really close to Taksim Square meaning close to various restaurants and shops. We didn't spend that much time in the house but it is has three floors where the middle one is nice and relaxing place to socialize in and the two others contains three bed rooms.

It is a bit noisy at night when sleeping in the bottom floor but Asli has left earplugs for solving that problem.

I would really recommend this place and Asli as your host!

Pink House - Ideal for Big Groups

It was a great time in the pinkhouse. We were there with 17 friends in the white and pinkhouse. Asli brought me a birthday cake and she made the garden beautiful with tables and lamps. We could eat with all of us in the g arden. The appartments were great...clean and modern. They were also close to the center...If you are traveling wirh the transport from the airport the bus stops close to
the appartment at the Taksim square.
So if you want a great time...be at the white or pinkhouse by Asli!!!!
