What makes this house unique

Being involved in it from its very first stages to its last has been a very exciting experience for me. This has given me the chance to decide on the designs of everything- from the shape of the balcony rails to the kitchen cabinet designs. We had all the woodwork done by our team of carpenters.

We have paid special care and attention to details that make the decoration unique. For example, we wanted to use a lot of design pieces; both lamps and furniture instead of mass produced ones because we believe they are what gives a house its character. Most of the wooden furniture was designed by my father who had them made by hand.

Also, we have come up with lamp designs and got them made using natural materials such as log slices, ropes and branches.

We have also used the famous Iznik tiles in the decoration because of their beauty and importance in the history of the Ottoman Empire. we wanted all this to be nice little surprises to our guests.

Excellent spot in Istanbul

  • 5 out of 5
We used Turquoise as our base for 6 nights in Istanbul. It is exactly as the pictures show, a very well equipped apartment from which to explore Istanbul. A walk up the hill will get you to the tram, or into the historic district. Up or down the hill are shops and restaurants. Nazli was wonderful in providing information before and during our stay. It is a bit tricky to find, however, we used Nazli's recommended airport pick up and the service was excellent. We would recommend this apartment.

Beautiful, first class apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this apartment last summer and we still talk about how amazing it is! The apartment is beautiful, spacious, and immaculate. The owner has made so much effort to make you feel at home and there are so many thoughtful little touches. The views out to sea from the balcony are incredible and the location is fantastic, within walking distance from all the major sights in the old town. This is one of the best places we have stayed at and I cannot recommend this highly enough! ��

An Istanbul Treat

  • 5 out of 5
This is an attractive, well-kept and equipped, 2-story, 2-bedroom apartment in the heart of the lively old town in Istanbul. Three of us felt comfortably "at home" here. Everything worked well; the owner was gracious and readily accessible to answer questions and offer advice. Restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and transportation are all in walking distance. (Walking on cobblestone streets may be a challenge for some.) We highly recommend this distinctive property.

Fantastic! Lovely, comfortable, modern, central

  • 5 out of 5
Absolutely perfect thank you so much. We could shop in the village at the foot of the hill for everything we needed (except alcohol-and we got that at the top of the hill) within 5 minutes walk. We were within walking distance to everything cultural and historical in the Old City, and the taxi rank below helped us easily get farther away.
Just perfect-and so comfortable and we loved it.

A fantastic base from which to explore Istanbul

  • 5 out of 5
It's hard to underestimate how important having such a perfect "home base" was for our fantastic week in Istanbul. Based right in the heart of Sultanahmet - 10 minutes walk away from all the "classics" of old Istanbul such as Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque - this is a modern, comfortable apartment with two self-contained bedrooms.

Our landlord Nazli was a gem. She provided complete information to help us get from the airport to the apartment - including instructions in Turkish and English for the taxi driver - and a host of tips and suggestions on how to make the most of the city.

When I plan to come back to Istanbul, re-renting this apartment will be my very first action.

The location of the property is great for those who want to stay in the Old Town and be close to all the major sightseeing spots such as the blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Grand Bazaar and the Yerebatan Cistern. The street the house is on is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood away form nightclubs and bars. There are several small hotels on the same street. Within a five-minute walk, you get to the Sultanahmet square and the Cemberlitas tram stop. Also, the property is really close to the sea for those who like going jogging or just walking by the sea. Eminönü is only 3 stops away and that's where you take the boat to take a Bosphorus tour.
