Overview

About the property

Our home provides easy access to all the delights that Istanbul has to offer. We are less than a 5 min walk to the charming shopping/restaurant areas in Arnavutkoy and to Kurucesme in the opposite direction. One can also walk to the Ortakoy waterfront or Bebek - both of which offer many opportunities to shop & eat, go out for the nightlife, smoke a hookah while sipping your beverage, or just hang out and people watch, as Istanbul is full of life at all hours of the day or night!

ABOUT OUR HOME

Our guests will have access to two primary bedrooms (one has a 160 X 200 cm – Queen size bed equivalent/second has a 180 X 200 cm – King size bed equivalent), plus two additional beds in the front room (both couches can be converted into comfy double beds). There is an ample supply of fresh sheets, pillowcases, pillows (two per person) lightweight summer coverlets plus heavier down comforters & duvet covers, for the sleeping areas. There are also two full bathrooms, each with custom showers & an ample supply of thick bath & hand towels, plus a separate laundry room/shoe storage area stocked with laundry and cleaning supplies & equipment. Our fantastic gourmet kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances & small kitchen appliances (kettle, mixer, sandwich grill, hand blender, food processor, etc.) and has a complete set of both casual and more formal dishes and serving pieces, bakeware, glassware, pots & pans, and a pantry full of spices & oils, teas & coffee plus other essentials to a Turkish home. Please help yourselves!! Our neighborhood has lots of shopping options, and Istanbul is well laden with MANY modern shopping malls, as well as more traditional & quaint neighborhood stores. We have provided you a map with important store locations nearby.

YOUR LOCAL HOSTS & ASSISTANTS

Our condo complex has a caretaker who will also be able to assist with your housecleaning needs, etc.

Our caretaker' wife will have everything spotless and ready for your arrival. She will also do the cleaning after your departure. Should you desire any interim cleaning or laundry services, as we discussed, I can arrange for that with her, as well, and those payments can be made to her directly at the rate of 150 Turkish Lira (Approx. $55 for a full day). She can assist you with laundry and/or ironing needs as well, if needed. The laundry room is completely stocked with detergent, fabric softener and bleach. We will cover all the prior and after cleaning services payments for her on our end.

Your contact here will be ready to get you into the property and show you around, as well as provide you with your two sets of access keys. Replacement costs for any lost keys is $150.00, as they are specially made security keys which cannot be copied. Please be sure that you understand how each key works as they are somewhat tricky and misuse could damage the locks.

WI-FI & TV ACCESS & AC

Our home has Wi-Fi access, a large, flat screen TV with access to both Turkish TV channels and also to US programming, including a good selection of US TV shows and Movies. There are two AC units in home – one in the front room/living area, the second is in the bedroom with King-sized bed. There are also ceiling fans with lights in the living area and each bedroom. Due to our location on the waterfront, you can usually keep the condo cool & comfortable by opening windows in the front and back of the home & allowing the sea breezes to circulate the air throughout.

HOUSE RULES

We are very excited about the beautiful remodeling that we did in our home. Accordingly, we would appreciate your using the facility with the same love and care that you would use in your own cherished property. Absolutely NO SMOKING inside the unit, AT ANY TIME. The front balcony is available for that, but PLEASE keep the patio door shut if you are smoking there.

The bathroom walls should NEVER have anything added or installed. The electrical system & water piping for ALL bathroom fixtures are located WITHIN the walls. This is why the large bathroom has a freestanding toilet paper holder & toilet bowl brush. Serious & dangerous damage could occur if the walls are penetrated with screws or nails of any kind.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Arnavutkoy is one of Istanbul's most authentic, still charming neighborhoods. Visitors will be able to take walks along the waterfront, enjoy our many cafe's, restaurants & parks, or grab a ferry to take a refreshing cruise on the Bosphorus, while taking in the incomparable scenery that our Istanbul has to offer. One can spend hours, just sitting at our huge picture window or on the balcony, just watching the endless array of water vessels that travel along our waterfront. Or grab your fishing pole & join the community of fisherman that can be found along the water's edge just in front of our property, day or night.

PRICING/COSTS

We have created a price schedule which will give you benefits for longer stay. Our minimum stay is FOUR days, and base pricing is intended for a maximum of FOUR guests. Please see our pricing table below:

SECURITY DEPOSIT of $1000 needs to be paid up front, and will be fully refundable to you as long as there is no damage or unpaid overages fees for electricity & water sewage.

We cover the HOA costs on a monthly basis for you. We will also cover the electricity, water/sewage, WIFI, & landline phone (for local calls ONLY) costs for you. PLEASE NOTE: The included costs for electricity & water/sewage is for a maximum of 300 Turkish Lira (Approx. $110). Any additional costs for these two items above 300 TL will be charged as an EXTRA to the guests.

GETTING AROUND

We have provided you with one Istanbul Kart – This is a MUST to use the public transit systems (NO CASH ALLOWED) including the ferries and can also be used in some public/pay toilets. The cost of the card is 50 Turkish Lira, and includes 30 Turkish Lira worth of transit access, and is our welcoming gift for your group. You can ADD ON more fares at many small booths located all around the city where you see a sign that says “AKBIL”. Average cost, per person, will deduct approximately 2 Turkish Lira per traveler, and the same card can be used for multiple parties as you get on board the transit. Please be sure to turn in the Istanbul Kart at your departure, as it costs over 20 TL just to obtain a new card. If you add the APP named “TRAFI” to your smartphone, you can obtain a variety of routes to any location, starting at your local bus stop to the left of our building – This stop is named “Kolej”. The TRAFI App will allow you to enter any destination, such as TAKSIM SQUARE, and will give you a variety of routes to choose from, including the amount of time each route should take, what bus/tram/metrobus, etc. numbers to take, and also gives you important data such as “Recommended”, “Less Walking”, “Fastest” etc. for each route given.

PLEASE NOTE: Taxicabs are easily found throughout our entire city, and each have taxi meters, so that you can track the cost. Most sought after locations can be reached for 10-30 TL, by taxis.

WE ARE SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU AS OUR GUESTS AND WISH YOU A MOST PLEASANT STAY!!

WELCOME TO OUR HOME & OUR WONDERFUL CITY - Hoş Geldiniz!!!
