The Space

Bagdat Avenue is the 4th best shopping street in the world!

Bagdat Avenue is a notable high street located in the Anatolian part of Istanbul, in Kadikoy. The avenue runs 6 km from Bostanci to Kiziltoprak, almost parallel to the coastline of the Sea of Marmara, within the district of Kadikoy. It is a main street in an upper-scale residential area. The one-way avenue with old plane trees is flanked with shopping malls, department stores, fashion garment stores, elegant shops offering world famous brands, restaurants of international and local cuisine, pubs and cafés, luxury car dealers and bank agencies. Most of the retail stores are open on all days of the week, including Sunday afternoon. 

Conveniently located in Goztepe neighborhood, 10 min. by walking distance to Bagdat Avenue and 20 min. from the seaside, our 3BR apartment is fully equipped for your comfortable stay.

During your stay, you can visit the prince's islands : Buyukada, Heybeliada, Burgaz, and Kinaliada by ferries departing near our house, at Bostanci. Islands are very close, the journey takes about 40 min.

A bosphorus tour is organized in Kadıköy (20 min).

From Bagdat Avenue, you can easily reach the European side of Istanbul :
- Taksim and Besiktas directly in 30-40 min. by yellow shuttles (7TL) except rush hours.
- By ferry from Kadikoy (20-30min. to Besiktas, Karakoy, Eminonu, Sirkeci)
- By metro-bus (goes to Zincirlikuyu)
- By speed ferry from Kadıkoy to several destinations (Bakırköy, Kabatas, Bosphorus, etc...)

We have a doorman in the building who provides his services two times a day, in the morning and in the mid-day. You can order your daily needs directly to him.

Thank you and welcome!

  • Pelin is the perfect host, always quick to respond, if there is something she doesn't know, she'll find out. She is friendly, easy going and just very helpful, it was a pleasure being her guest.

    The apartment is very nice, just like it shows in the pictures. It has a nice homely feeling without being cluttered with the owner's stuff everywhere. The kitchen has everything conceivable for serious cooking.

    I had not stayed on the Asian side before and found it in many ways nicer than the European side, the shopping on Bagdat Avenue is fantastic, it is not as crowded as the European side, people are friendlier and the pace is slower. Bagdat Avenue is only 10 mins walk away. If you catch one of the shuttlebuses that run every minute you'll be at the Kadikoy fast ferry port in ten minutes and the main tourist attractions on the European side are a short boatride away with departures every 15 minutes.

    Whatever your reason for visiting Istanbul, I think you will be very happy at Pelin's place, I highly recommend it.

  • Pelin's apartment is spacious yet still extremely comfortable. She has every amenity that you could ever want, and there is a concierge that comes by twice a day to deliver whatever you request (groceries, toiletries, etc) at no additional cost. It is located just a few blocks away from the very lively and chic Bagdat Street, a beautiful and relaxing park filled with flowers, and the waterfront of the Marmara Sea. There are also quite a few dining options and small 24 hour groceries markets located nearby. Traveling is also very simple as there is a taxi stand half a block away from the apartment, and Goztepe train station is about 2 blocks away. The train station is only 4 stops away from the Kadikoy Ferry which can take you to many of the attractions on the western part of Istanbul for around $6US. Pelin is a kind a courteous host. She was constantly in contact with us, and checking on all of our needs. I would not hesitate to stay here, if you are coming to visit Istanbul!
