Très bon accueil de notre hôte dès notre arrivée. Attentif, à l"écoute, plein d'humour. Une maison de charme et un hôte charmant. Plein d'informations échangées.
C'est un peu comme si nous étions allés chez des amis.
Bien situé. Tout à fait conforme au descriptif
Tuncay and his friend Selattin provided us a marvelous experience in Izmir. The house is beautiful, and Selattin (Tuncay had been out on business during our stay) offered us lots of help. He prepared us free breakfast, and took us to bus stops and restaurants. The room also has an independent bathroom. I would highly recommend this house to my friends!
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!

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).
