Located very centrally on the European side of Istanbul, Cukurcuma is full of antique shops, cafes and restaurants; it is a few steps away from Cihangir, the "in" place for writers, artists, actors and expats. The house is very close to public transport and it is the perfect place for a family or groups of friends.
All other parts of the City are reachable very easily. History enthusiasts can take the tram and go to the Old City, where you can visit the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia in just 10 minutes.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us. We will be happy to help you.
Looking forward to welcoming you as our guests.
The neighborhood is chock a blok with antique shops, trendy cafes, old style architecture and conveniently located for walking to Taksim, central Beyoglu, and public transport.
Shellie was an amazing host - those that are hard to find in Airbnb. She was alert of our arrival (she even asked our flight number to track us down!) and she provided some fruits and snacks at home. Within 2 hours, she fixed the washing machine and she was super flexible for our check in and check out timings. I truly recommend her!
We had a wonderful time in Istanbul. Shellie's Ottoman house was just as described. Shellie was very quick to respond to all emails/texts. Although we didn't meet shellie in person her assistant was at the house to meet us, very helpful too. The house is located in a very laid back and trendy part of town, great local cafes/bars and some amazing vintage shops too. Very close to Taksim and Istikal, the tram to Sultanahmet is also walking distance. Overall a good location to explore.
I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Shellie has been a great host. She showed us ways to the apartment to every detail and warmly provided us loads and loads of info about the neighborhood. Thanks Shellie!
Shellie's apartment was wonderful. An excellent location, beautifully decorated and an ideal place to stay for your trip to Istanbul.
Shellie is an amazing host, the house is wonderful. I would continiue in Russian, for russian language speakers. Дом трехуровневый, сан узел в двух уровнях. Нас было 6-ро, все 6-ро разместились удобно. Дом очень светлый и красивый, расположен недалеко от Таксима и основной улицы с барами и кафе. Мы перемещались практически только пешком. Рядом есть магазины и кафе. Есть отопление. Нет проблем с водой. При въезде нас ждали фрукты, вода и завтрак. Все было очень мило и красиво.
We had a wonderful time at this location. The appartment is located very close to many bars and restaurants but is very quiet at the same time. Shellie was a perfect host clearing all open questions before they even came up. Thank you, we would like stay here again next time!
Great house, great location, great host, great city! We loved Istanbul and Shellie's house is a fantastic spot from which it is so easy to explore everything the city has to offer. The house is lovely - comfy, loads of room, everything you could need & Shellie & her assistant were really helpful in terms of providing a warm welcome, directions & local knowledge. All in all an excellent stay, would recommend Shellie's house to anyone looking into a little jaunt to Istanbul, I will definitely be going back again in due course! Thanks Shellie :)

About the Host, Shellie
İ am an american living for the past 6 years in istanbul. İ was the owner of a cafe for 5 years here and now İ am trying to make other foreigners have an experience of staying in istanbul more like a local. İ am happy to interact with my guests in order for them to feel as if they are not just tourists.
