Cem and Ozlem are very kind and friendly. Their house is clean. Because the weather was too hot, we sleep downstairs with an air conditioner, also comfortable.
Thanks so much for this excellent review dear Xixi! We always feel that we are very lucky about our guests and have hosted very nice people all around the world. It was a real pleasure for us to meeting and hosting you. We google translated:) the review for the Airbnb community, so that they can benefit from your experience. Hope to meet again!
Xixi: "We can say that this journey is the most comfortable time relaxing stay. Once home, Cem put maps, keys, bus cards are ready, but also for our planned travel route. Cem is willing to share with us all home, we feel as comfortable as in your own home. They have a super large bathroom and a variety of household appliances, even a dishwasher. Our bedroom is clean, simple, and cannot see a hair, a little dust. My husband and Cem talked about the difference between Chinese and indigenous community of that country, he has a unique perspective, but also responded with a childlike smile. Cem and Ozlem's small courtyard, which has raspberries, plums, grapes (Cem warmly invited us to taste) and gave us prepare the frozen watermelon. When we left, Cem specially sent us up (he was late to bed) very impressed."
The time at Cem and Ozlem house was great! This Is a confortable and really nice place to stay, full of love and tranquility . Located near a metro station.
We thank Cem so much for giving us lots of useful traveling information about the city and Turkey in general. They are amazing :-)
100% absolutly recomended!
Very friendly host, explained me everything, gave me maps, helps me a lot.
Nice, clean apartment in quiet neighborhood, 15 minutes from city center by metro.
The neighborhood at the first impression doesn't look safe, but I went there at night, so I can say is safe for sure.
I can recommend.
Cem and Ozlem were great hosts! They had excllent recommendations and tons of information about what to do in and around Izmir. Their house is super sweet and in a nice neighborhood that is conveniently close to a main metro line. I would definitely recommend staying with them!
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!
