Hey there :)
I am Australian with a Turkish background and have been living in Istanbul for the last 3 years. I found this place about 2 years ago. I am an English/singing teacher by day and a musician by night. I've been touring so I go away frequently.
My apartment has one bedroom and a lounge room. It also has a balcony. I have all the things you will need. Such as bed, wardrobe, washing machine, fridge, stove etc. There's a king size bed in the bedroom and a pull out sofa in the lounge room so if you tried you could fit 4 people in the place.
Cihangir is a very multicultural area. There are many people from all around the world who live around this area and it's such a funky part of town. There are many antique stores and little galery/art spaces to check out. The trendy cafe's are also really cool. People are so friendly here. My place is so close to the sea, only a 10 minute walk so you can walk down and catch a ferry to go over to the islands very easily. Oh, there are also some really cool music stores that sell vinyl’s. If you're into music you can find some great Turkish records.
If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to contact me :)
