Our hosts made us feel very welcome. We received a card and a chocolate each, which was a really nice touch, as well as breakfast the first morning.
Our room was really clean and pleasant, along with the rest of the house and garden. The neighbourhood felt homely, in spite of being in a really big city.
Cem and Ozlem are very good hosts, they speak a high level of English, and are interesting to talk to. They were really helpful with advice on using public transport, and where to go in the city.
We would recommend their place for others to stay.

Warm-hearted, charming and very professional hosts, starting with a complete pre-arrival assistance answering all your doubts, and ending with lots of useful tips around your trip, like sights to see in town, transport possibilities and destinations nearby. The entire well-kept house is lovely, bright, tidy and only 700 m from an important Metro station, so you can go to the airport, to the impressive ruins of Ephesus and to beautiful Cesme by public transportation, which is indeed highly efficient. Wifi, by the way, is very fast. Whenever in Izmir, I would return to this place!
I had a very enjoyable stay at Cem and Ozlem's comfortable home in Izmir, starting with being rescued by Cem when I turned the wrong direction from the Metro station. Ozlem was out of town, so I didn't get a chance to meet her--but she phoned to welcome me. Cem showed me the house, with its pleasant garden and lovely sunroom, as well as where to find everything in the kitchen. He also recommended a local restaurant, where I ate lunch . . . just point to anything you'd like to try. It's all delicious! The location is near the Stadyum metro stop, just one stop away from the Izban, making it easy to get to and from the airport. Last but not least, Cem got up at 5 am so he could call me a taxi to take me to the airport. He and Ozlem love to travel and have seen many interesting parts of the world. If I return to Izmir, I would love to stay with them again.
Accommodation was very comfortable. Located in a very quiet and peaceful area of Izmir, near the metro station (4 stops to the city center). At the same time it was easy to get out of town by car, even during peak hours. Cem & Ozlem very interesting people, with whom it was pleasant to talk to. They helped us in all matters that have arisen.
It was great rest in this house.
if I will go to izmir again I will stay this house again. thanks for everything cem~
Cem and Özlem were very kind and easy-going hosts. They gave me every info I needed to easily find the place, which I did. I got the impression that it is not a very posh neighbourhood, but once you get a feel for it, you will really like the small streets with small houses around. The place is easily reachable with public transport. The house itself is lovely. The room is very comfortable to sleep in, the bed is really good, and the blankets are warm, wich was useful, as the weather was not too favourable. You can use the common spaces, like the living room, which I did not do, as I did not want to get in the hosts' way, especially at new years day. But trying to be invisible is just my style... We had the opportunitiy to have some small chats, they were helpful in giving me advices, maps and the like. They are experienced travellers too, so they know what travellers need at an accomodation. They also have a nice garden that I could not enjoy because of the weather.
very nice house. Ozlem is very kind. We had a good time there！
