I can simply say I am 100% satisfied with the experience I made with the room of Tuncay. There are a lot of nice stuff to tell about. I do understand now how he managed to get such great feedback from everybody. I am sure I will be coming back!
Thank you so much for everything!
It is a really nice house which here I recommend anybody coming to Izmir. The Greek decorated style, the kind and nice neighbour, the most convenient location. Tuncay gives us lots of advice and also prepare the metro card and tourist brochure. So kind and make us feel like staying at own (website hidden) Chinese dishes and enjoy with local people. Fantastic!We love Izmir, especially the people there.
Tuncay was amazing! His house was beautiful and it felt almost like home. I would recommend this to anyone. He had tons of information about the city and useful things like maps and bus passes already ready. We hope to come back some day when we have more time. It was fantastic!
Tuncay's place is extremely cosy and has so much character. It is also very near the bay where one can take beautiful strolls both day and night. Tuncay is very friendly, helpful and hospitable. It is definitely worth staying at his place!
Our time at Tunçay's was more than we had hoped for. The room is comfortable and inviting, clean and offers everything needed (the private entrance and private bathroom were a big plus). Access to the kitchen and washing mashine in Tunçay's personal area was very convenient. We were very comfortable using everything, it felt like home.
The house is in a perfect location. It is possible to walk everywhere. Bus and metro stations are also very close by (easy arrival/departure by bus/metro).
We had the chance to meet Tunçay, as well as his friends and family. Those encounters were a perfect way for us to fall in love with Izmir and Turkish culture. Thank you Tunçay. You might be the best Airbnb host out there.
Notre séjour chez Tunçay a surpassé nos attentes. La chambre est confortable et invitante, propre et offre tout le nécessaire (l'entrée privée et la salle de bain privée sont un gros plus.) L'accès à la cuisine et à la machine à laver dans l'aire de vie de Tunçay nous a été très utile. Nous nous sommes sentis bien à l'aise d'en faire usage, un peu comme chez soi.
La maison est parfaitement située. Il est possible de marcher à tous les endroits d'intérêt. Les stations de métro et d'autobus sont également à proximité (arrivée/départ aisés par métro et/ou bus.)
Nous avons eu la chance de rencontrer Tunçay ainsi que certains amis et membres de sa famille. Ce contact a contribué à notre amour pour Izmir et la culture Turque en général. Merci Tunçay. Tu es fort probablement le meilleur hôte de la communauté Airbnb.
We haven't met Tunacay in person, but he was very accommodating when we contacted him for a reservation. His house is full of his works of art, and is decorated with great taste. The location is good, 10 minutes (some of it is uphill ) walk to the metro station which will take you to the center in 10 minutes. It felt safe at night, and had alot of shops and restaurants. I wasn't very comfortable with the bathroom layout (it is as shown in the picture) with no bath tub. Also, the WIFI signal is very weak in the room and non-existant if you are sitting on the bed. However, it works very well in the common area. His neighbor checked us in quickly and offered to contact her in case of any questions. We haven't had any communications with her or Tuncay during our stay though.

I'm a painter who exhibits in London and in the United States, and, more recently, in Istanbul, Turkey. My hobby is restoration, and this house is one of my restoration projects. My "real" job is as a vessel traffic system operator in the Çanakkale Straight.
When I'm at my home in Izmir, I love to share leisurely meals with friends over good conversation. I traveled a lot and I enjoy meeting new people and making them feel welcome in my favorite city! Bus stop is 100 m. away from myhouse. walking distance to Konak which is the Center of İzmir (2 KM).
