  • Onur was a great host. Actually we never saw the flat because the toilet was broken. We stayed in another place he offered us, also in Besiktas, and also with a great view. The other apartment was not so nice though. We missed the typical Turkish ambient.

  • We stayed at the Diva Bosphorus Apartments Terrace for one week, May 7-14, 2014. Our stay was fantastic. The apartment is in a very quiet residential neighbourhood that is near a lot of universities and public transportation. This makes it an ideal location to explore the city. The buses are really inexpensive and because it is near Ciragan Road, you can catch any number of buses going to Cabatas or north to Bebek or Ortakoy. Taxis are also plentiful along Ciragan Road and easy to use. It does over look the Bosphorus and the pictures are exactly as it is in real life.

    As a host Onur was very responsive, on time to meet us as the apartment and even arranged an airport transfer for us. The apartment was very clean, well stocked with towels, bedding and bathroom basics, had a great kitchen (we used it for breakfast things but there are so many fantastic restaurants in Ist that we ate out most of the time) and had comfortable beds.

    It is located at the top of a steep hill, but that is Ist. It is very walkable and the sidewalks all have a series of stairs that make it easier. We even discovered little short cuts over to the bus and coffee shops. There are small grocers (fruits, veggies), a bakery and convenience stores (snacks, drinks and water), right at the bottom of the hill which is a short 3 minute walk.

    We really enjoyed waking up to the boats moving along the Bosphorus every morning after quiet sleeps and returning home every night to our quiet flat after busy days in the city. The terrace is a great place to enjoy the sounds of birds, watch the boats and eat a quiet breakfast.

    It was a great week!

  • The house was beautiful, offers a great view of the bosphorus, situated in a very central location in Istanbul. It comfortably fits 5 people. However there were no cleaning supplies, not even a table cloth to clean your dinner table, neither a broom or a vacuum. Lastly, Onur was not punctual with check in time, neither with the check out. Also when we asked for towels, he came couple hours later than what he promised. Besides this it is a great place to stay!

  • The view from the apartment is great. The apartment was clean. There was sufficient amount of supplies. Onur was attentive. We as 5 adults had a good time.
    The location of the apartment is problematic for older people, however. It is located on a very steep incline. The street is single direction. Many taxis are not able to figure out how to come down from the only direction. ("serencebey" is a better term to describe the location of the house, rather then the street name.)
    The apartment can benefit from some minor repairs also. (they may be done by now). A tile was cracked on the floor and coming out of its place. Bathroom window required creative ways to close, there is bubbling of paint in the master bedroom.
    Overall, it was a great experience. Thank you Onur!

  • Departamento super comodo, una vista preciosa desde el salon comedor y los dormitorios. Un barrio muy tranquilo con negocios cerca. Me gusto mucho.

    Çok güzel bir hafta sonu geçirdik. Manzara harika. Boğazdaki gemiler ve gökyüzündeki martılar sizi hiç yalnız bırakmıyor. Saatlerce seyredebileceğiniz manzarasıyla ev size huzur veriyor. Ortaköy'e yürüyerek gidebiliyorsunuz. Beşiktaş ve Kabataşa da öyle. Yürümeyi seviyorsanız çoğu yere yürüyerek (website hidden) 4 kişi kaldık ve çok mutlu olduk.

  • wunderschön gelegenes Appartment, mit einem Balkon der zum verweilen einlädt. Ruhiges Haus mit traumhaften Blick!
    Geschirr in der Küche könnte mehr sein, auch mit der Hand abspülen sollte möglich sein (Geschirrspülmaschine ist vorhanden, lohnt aber nicht anzustellen). Der Service ist sehr gut, Taxiabholung klappt wunderbar, auch wird bei Wünschen sofort reagiert. Die Lage ist ideal für Ausflüge in alle Richtungen, wir waren sehr froh genau dort gelandet zu sein.

  • Great apartment with an amazing view of the Bosphorus. My wife and I and two kids (14 and 17) stayed and it worked out wonderfully. The kitchen is good and also has a clothes washing machine (no dryer) which we used. There are 3 bedrooms. The air conditioning worked very well, although the blowers are only in the master bedroom and living room, so the other 2 bedrooms get cooled, but indirectly.

    The location in Besitas is great, the bus line and a couple of good restaurants are right at the bottom of the hill. Important note: like much of Istanbul the apartment is at the top of a steep hill.

    Onur, the landlord is great and was very helpful.
