About this listing
It will be a pleasure for me if I can show you the real Turkish hospitality and if you feel comfortable in my home.
ABOUT MY HOME:
It's an extremely comfortable, sunny, 3+1, 140 m² apartment which exactly has everything you need. It's on the fifth floor with an elevator and it has two bedrooms, one bathroom, air conditioners which are in one bedroom and in the living room, a balcony with foliage views (if you need you can smoke in the balcony), lots of closet space, a large living area and a kitchen. It has wooden floors in the house and receives tremendous sunlight during the day. I have wireless high speed unlimited internet connection, professional hair dryer, TV, record player, water pipe. The kitchen is equipped with a marble counter top, a full size refrigerator, a cooker, a kettle, a microwave, cupboard space for storage and enough cookware/dishware for entertaining. You can cook, make Turkish coffee by coffeemaker, or cook Japanese-style rice by Japanese rice cooker. Drinking water is free. You can use sports equipment. Moreover, you can also use whatever you need.
The guest bedroom has a comfortable, clean double size (140×200 cm) and one single size (90×200 cm) real beds, large windows, a closet and an office desk. (All new furniture) I also provide clean towels & sheets. Even if you book the room just one guest or more, it will be your private room and we won't host another guest to your room. There are a lot of wonderful places to see in Istanbul so you can relax after long, tiring days in your quiet room.
LOCATION and THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
I live in Göztepe Minibüs Street which is the safest place in İstanbul. Wealthy and well-educated people would prefer to live here. You will feel the Turkish elite life style in Göztepe. Supermarkets, banks, restaurants, museums, fish bazaar, theaters, opera, movie theaters, pubs, bars are so close and shopping is not expensive. It's a strategic location to go easily to all the places in Istanbul.
If you want to go to Eminönü, Sultanahmet, Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Spice Bazaar, Galata Tower, Topkapı Palace, Dolmabahçe Palace, Princes' Islands, you can use bus for 10 minutes to Kadıköy, and ferry ride with a great Bosphorus view for 20 minutes.
If you want to see Bağdat Street which has so many shopping centers, Kalamış Marina for yachts, Fenerbahçe, Caddebostan Beach for swimming, beach volley and pubs, you can walk 20 minutes on a nice view streets and beautiful flower gardens.
You can go to Kadıköy by bus or minibus in 10 minutes and you can use the metrobus to Atatürk airport, metro (underground), ferry, cable railway, bus to everywhere. You can always go to Taksim by yellow minibuses in 15 minutes. I will give some tips for shortcuts.

Nos encantó el piso de Chari y Anna! Muy limpio, tranquilo, confortable y la habitación muy amplia.
No tuvimos tiempo de disfrutar bien de Chari y Anna pero nos sentimos en casa y esto se agradece mucho!!! Muchas gracias
Y la localización del piso está muy bien, lejos del ruido del centro de Istambul... con paseos en barco mágicos. Una bonita experiencia a repetir!
Спасибо за гостеприимство! Чистая, светлая, просторная и уютная комната! Самое важное - доброжелательная и обаятельная семья. Chari подробно и интересно рассказал о районе, транспорте и достопримечательностях. Район очень современный, рядом с Фенирбахчи. А квартира очень уютная, ухоженная и комфортная. Anna прекрасная хозяйка! С удовольствием остановимся здесь в следующий приезд.
Ich habe 6 Nächte bei Chari&Anna gewohnt und habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist groß, sehr sauber und komfortabel, das Zimmer geräumig und mit allem ausgestattet was man benötigt. Sie sind wirklich tolle Gastgeber und stehen dir bei Fragen immer zur Verfügung, man merkt das sie Erfahrung haben bei Airbnb und kümmern sich sehr herzlich um dich. Die Gegend ist sicher und gepflegt, in 10-15 min. ist man Hafen. Ich werde bestimmt wieder kommen :)
Thank you for the wonderful time with you! I miss you already. I can only report good and would come back any time. The apartment is very nice and modern furnishings. Everything is very clean and the area is quiet and modern. But was the best time I spent with you. Thanks again for this :)
Cagri and Anna are such a nice couple, very hospitable and kind! They even took us to the beach to play beach volleyball with their friends, provided us with really helpful directions and took us to the airport.
The room is in excellent condition, bright, big and clean. If you want to experience the less touristy Asian side it is the perfect location for a holiday!
We couldn't have wished for nicer hosts. :)
Chari and Anna are a delight.
Their home is very comfortable, clean and quiet.
Chari went to a great deal of trouble to provide me with maps and transport details to the old part of the city and other places of particular interest.
On my arrival at the airport I felt especially thankful to find Chari waiting to drive me to his home. Chari also organised for a taxi to take me to the airport on my return.
...what all the other reviews said ;)
Chari was a very helpful, friendly and personable host. Although he was quite busy, he made time to walk around with me and show me the neighborhood. The apartment was nice and clean. The room is furnished with very helpful maps, brochures, and books - and Chari is also able and willing to make recommendations.
It was a good stay.

About the Host, Chari&Anna
We live in a beautiful city, Istanbul. We don't smoke. We enjoy playing musical instruments, Aikido, Latin dances, trekking, nature, scuba diving, fishing, cooking and meeting people from different cultures. We've lived in Istanbul for 15 years, so we know the city very well and therefore we can give some assistance on where to go and what to see. We're sure we're offering you home comfort away from home.
