We hebben met mijn gezin (man/vrouw en twee zoons van 24 en 20) een heerlijke vijf dagen doorgebracht. Ender is gastvrij, vertelt je van alles over Istanbul en geeft je de Turkse inside informatie. Toen we de eerste avond aankwamen, had hij heerlijk Turks eten klaar staan zonder dat daar iets over afgesproken was. Je zit in een rustig Aziatisch deel op korte afstand (10 min lopen)van de bootveerdiensten van Ushkadar. Ook is er sinds kort een metrolijn onder de Bosporuis door die stopt in het historisch deel van de Gouden Hoorn. Met een pas ook heel goedkoop (60 cent per rit). Er zijn dicht in de buurt een aantal supermarktjes, groentewinkeltjes, bakker, slager etc. Op 5 minuten afstand loop je op de prachtige boulevard langs de Bosporus. Kortom: een perfecte plaats om Istanbul te verkennen. Er zijn twee goede slaapkamers met een dubbelbed. Je deelt samen met Ender de huiskamer en de keuken, maar dat was geen probleem. De laatste dag had hij voordat we vertrokken een lekker ontbijt klaar gemaakt met diverse soorten Turkse kazen. Kortom : een aanrader. Maar binnenkort wordt zijn appartement gesloopt (en herbouwd)en gaat hij tijdelijk ergens anders wonen. Hij wil wel weer terugkomen als zijn appartement klaar is.

We have really enjoyed the residence at Ender's cosy and relaxed home. Ender is a very friendly, hospitable and helpful host with much humour and empathy. His flat is clean, spacious and tastful, bathroom is modern, his kitchen has all you need and the bedroom(s) is nice and big enough for two persons with a solide and comfortable bed inside. The house is in a very calm and safe street with little shops around 7 minutes by foot far from the centre and the harbour of Üsküdar, from where whole day until night cheap ferries are going to all importent and interesting places on the European side of Bosporus and back. If you like, Ender likes to prepare and show you typicel türkish food. We sincere wish Ender all the best and hope to see him once again.

I flew into Istanbul needing somewhere to stay while I looked for a permanent place for my new job and, I must admit, my expectations were pretty minimal as a first time Wimdu customer. My experience staying with Ender was far better than anything I could have hoped for. Not only did he make me feel entirely at home in his apartment but he bent over backwards to show me around, introducing me to the transport system and the local facilities and even taking me to work on my first day to make sure I got there both in time and unflustered. He is also a great cook and gave me an enticing glimpse into the depths and subtleties of the Turkish kitchen. Whilst all this assistance was at my disposal it is also important to note that none of it was imposed on me. As happy as Ender was to help me with pretty much anything, he was also entirely unoffended on the occasions when I turned down his offers of assistance so I could blunder around by myself.

In short, this was about as perfect an experience as I could have asked for.

8 Very good

Staying at Ender’s house is quite an experience. For us it was special for several reasons. Ender is a wonderful person, who loves people. The first night we had a lovely Turkish meal, cooked by him. We really felt very welcome. The apartment was well equipped: Our rooms were spacious and clean, as was the bedding, and the bathroom was modern with a good shower. However, the common use of kitchen and living room felt a bit cramped at times. The apartment is on the Asian side which was ideal: in the mornings we started relaxed by a 10 minutes walk to the ferry and a 15 minutes boat trip to the European side. We enjoyed it every time, because this way we could experience real Turkish daily life with all its different people. Within ten more minutes by tram we entered quite a different world of history and culture: Topkapi, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Basilica Cisterne etc. we enjoyed very much visiting it. And of course a boat trip and a city bus tour taught us a lot more about Istanbul.
Overall, Turkish people are very kind and so were Ender and his friends we met and had dinner (of course cooked by Ender) with. We talked a lot about Turkey and its developments.
So we can really recommend this apartment to people who are looking for an unusual, interesting place to stay for a visit to Istanbul.

We could not have asked for a better host! Ender really made my girlfriend and I feel comfortoble from the moment we arrived. Picking us up from the main part of town and greeting us with a very warm Turkish welcome.
The room was very tidy and as described. Much better looking in fact when you see it. Ender is a fantastic cook and even better host. Helping with local knowledge and language barriers where necessary. If we head back to Istanbul we will certainly stay again with Ender.
If you choose to stay in this part of town (asian side) you will have a far better and more unique Turkish experience. The European side is very tiring and full of tourists. If you want a local perspective with better quality in every regard this is the place to go!
Ender is a genuine top bloke! Really made our trip worthwhile. Thanks!

I've stayed for 3 weeks at the apartement in Üsküdar at the asian side of Istanbul.
I really enjoyed the location, because at this side of the city, you didn't see the mass tourism and you got a feeling of 'Turkey in its full glory'
The apartement is not far from all the touristic sides of the great city.
The transport facilities to the European side were very good.
Within a few minutes walk I had a great view over the Maiden Tower and the Bosphorus bridge and the beatiful sunsets.
For me the apartement was a very nice and quiet place, a resting point to begin my day in this great city.
The rooms were very clean and had everything I needed to make me feel 'at home'.
Ender was a very friendly,kind and helpfull host.
I had even the chance to taste his delicious meals. Ender is a great cook!
Thank you Ender for your caring and support and making my stay in Istanbul even more special!!
I've enjoyed it a lot and would certainly recommend this place to you all.
