To get a well rounded impression of our cottage, we kindly ask you to read through all the details of our listing carefully. Our descriptions are regularly updated and always reflect the current conditions of the cottage and will greatly help us improve your travelling experience.
As a guest, you will have full access to the house during your stay. Clean bed linens and towels will be provided for you. The house has a shower with 24/7 hot water. The kitchen has all the basic utensils available and our guests are more than welcome to use all pans/plates etc.
Interaction with guests
Upon your arrival, we will be present at the house to greet you and welcome you to the house. We will go over the basic rules of the house, and leave you the keys. If we can't be there for your check-out, feel free to drop the keys in the mailbox situated next to the iron garden door.
Other things to note
Please keep in mind that the house is a country cottage, situated in the middle of nature. There will inevitably be a chance of coming across small insects outside or possibly inside the house. There are however no poisonous insects or wild animals in the yard. If needed, bug pesticides can be used inside the house.
Since the fence around the house allows small animals to roam around freely, we sometimes might have a neighbourhood cat or dog visit the house. Feel free to feed them if you wish - however please do it further out from the house, so that they won't get comfortable enough to enter the house.
Concerning the tap water usage: we have our own well inside garden which gives us clean spring water. This means that it isn't perfectly regulated at all times. If you notice an orange color in the flow, let the taps run for about 5 minutes, and the water will be back to normal. We advise you to buy bottled water for drinking.
As of 2017, due to the government regulations, we are required to forward ID of each guest staying at our house to the local authorities. We therefore kindly ask our guests to be prepared to send a copy of their Turkish or international identification upon check-in.
We have 3 very important rules about the use of our house:
1) We, as a family are non-smokers. Therefore we expect you to respect this fact by not smoking indoors.
2) We hope that you to leave the house in a good condition, without damages to the furniture.
3) We expect you to be respectful to the surroundings, and keep in mind that this is a calm farming area.
Failure in respecting these rules may result in cuts from the deposit. For detailed instructions, please refer to the house manual once you arrive at our house.

I am a young architect currently living in the Danish capital, Copenhagen. After having having lived the first 18 years of my life in Turkey, I set out to travel further: I have now been living around Europe for the past 8 years. First in Italy, then in the Netherlands and finally, Denmark. I currently find myself in a lovely country, and a lovely city - Copenhagen.
Being an architect means I dedicate most of my time for my craft - something I rarely describe as 'work'. This can be office projects, trips to unique works of architecture, or time spent on improving a personal hobby - they all add up to what I wish to manifest as an architect. Apart from the sphere of architecture, sports are a great passion as I love to learn new ways of using my body and keep myself in shape. I love being outdoors, enjoying any type of weather, and travelling to new places, whether it be cities or the nature.
Airbnb allows me to truly share my passion for travelling with others. Personally, being a host is the greatest joy for me: I love being able to provide shelter for travellers from different countries and cultures, getting to meet them and to be able to make their journey worthwhile.
