My family and I have stayed in this villa (it's more like a four floors flat than a villa ) for 10 days.
The villa is located in the very posh area of Istanbul and it's near the seaside which is a great place for morning and evening walk. Having said that the villa is a bit far from all the tourist attractions but you can easily get Taxis or Buses to go anywhere you'd like.
The villa is a bit old and poorly managed and NOT a child friendly villa, it is a nightmare if you are with a child:( !! The villa is being advertised for 11 people but two of the bedrooms are on the forth floor which was very very unsafe to get into it.
Unfortunately while we were there the sink and the washing machine had some problems and we weren't able to wash stuff in the sink or use the washing machine and water was all over the kitchen floor. We told our host about this and he came to fix it but it was out of his hand and he called some services to fix it, which didn't work for us and we ended up living with this disaster! Also all the toilet seats were broken!!!!
You don't expect to deal with this kind of problems when you are in holidays. I expected at least some discounts but I didn't get anything which was very unfair.
considering my experience I would not recommend the villa.
Very nice house for company or family up to 11 persons. Located in 2 mins walking distance from Bosphorus and good fish restaurants. The neighborhood is quite and safe. You can easily get to Kabatas transport hub by bus in 20 mins. Hayri was very hospitable host and our family spent unforgettable week in Istanbul! I can easily recommend Villa as affordable accommodation in Istanbul!

We had a one night for a birthday celebration. We had enough fun with 10 buddies. The place has a relaxing aura.
It is close to pretty much everything you need to do and see in Istanbul.
Wonderful shore of the Bosphorus is a 3 minutes walking away and other european side historical places can be reached in 30 minutes by transportation units.
Otherwise the villa overall is very clean as possible from kitchen to the bedrooms. Bed sheets are clean so we had a very comfortable sleep.
You can also find kitchen set for the food and drinks.
If you will stay for long term it is very appropriate choice also. The balcony is also a quite place to free your mind. You can't hear any car noises or other such inconvenient noises.
The host is a gentle and considerate person. He helped us on everything we need. So we knew at the beginning we made the right choice for our first visit !
Great place! We rented the whole house for 8 adults, 1 toddler & 3 infants and it was convenient & comfortable for both spending time with kids & grown up evening leisure. Though the building is situated quite far from The old city we found a great way to travel from there - ferry just 10 min walking distance. The only problem was to get there because the only morning boat left at 7 something. But even with 3 kids it was ok to use bus + tram option. And it was fully compensated with great Bosphorus view, excellent fish restaurants & quiet nights of Bisektas. So if you travel with family and want to live on comfort and not in the overcrowded center - thus place is highly recommended.
3 aile 3 gün konakladığımız bu sıcak evin nazik sahibine çok teşekkürler. evi düzenli ve temiz bulduk çarşaflar yataklar havlular ve evin genel temizliği bizleri kendi evimizde gibi hissettirdi. sabah erkenden kalkıp 2-3 dakika yürüyerek boğaza ulaşmak ayrıca keyifliydi. bize eve giriş ve çıkış saatlerinde sağladığı esneklik sayesinde ise çantaları bırakacak yer aramak yerine biraz daha gezmeye zaman ayırabildik.
perfect location and place for a group like 5 persons or more - best spot at this area with nice restaurants and cafes - thank for the tipps Hayri: Love the Cafe Sütis - and they love us :)

Our experience with Hayri was great! He took care of our transportation. Besides that he was very polite and helpful with everything. At the day of our arrival he helped and showed us the places where we could eat and drink and he was easy to reach.
In the future when we are coming back to Istanbul with a big group we will difinitely connect with him again!
Me and ny family stayed 8 days and we all beleave that we were lucky to find this amaizing place. Hayri and his partner helped us get things arranged and gave us as much info as needed. The villa is well equipped with everything you'd need and the rooms are spacious and relaxing.
If you are considering this BOUTIQUE VILLA, you will not be disappointed!
