Pelin has a beautiful and clean flat, walking distance from Bagdat Avenue and from the seaside. She is a kind, helpful, fun to talk to and speaks excellent English. I loved the room too, everything was perfect. Thanks for hosting me!:)
I am so happy that I had the opportunity to stay with Pelin in Istanbul. Pelin was incredibly generous, assisting my friend and I with everything from calling cab companies for our airport transportation, giving detailed directions to local sights, to even providing us with a delicious Turkish breakfast. She really went above and beyond to be a fantastic host to us in her beautiful and comfortable apartment. Great location close to Bagdat Ave if you're staying on the Asian side. You will be in good hands if you stay with Pelin!
I am delighted my chose to stay at Pelin's. Apartment on exclusive location in İstanbul, next to Bagdad street shopping zone and seaside. Bagdad street is famous due to the chain of world wide famous stores like Guess, Armani, La coste and others... Apartment is located in beautiful, peaceful location next to Bagdad street and only 3 minutes walking distance from the seaside. Connections with airport, city center and other important locations in İstanbul are perfect (bus, mini bus, metro bus, metro, ferry boat). Nearby is port from where you can visit by ferry boat charming Prince islands (Prens adalar). .. Apartment is equiped with air conditioning, ADSL, Wİ Fİ, cable TV, hot water 24 hours per day, hair dryer, micro wave, washing machine, dish washing machine. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting a great location in Istanbul, in a clean, spacious and friendly flat.
Great hosts, very easygoing and very friendly ! The flat is also very nice, located in a very nice area, close to everything ! highly recommended! Thank you Pelin again.... :))
Pelin was an absolutely incredible host and really taught me the ins and outs of Istanbul. She was very willing to spend extensive time explaining logistics and helping me NOT get lost! She also made sure that I - as a solo female traveler - never felt alone. The single room was gorgeous and filled with wonderful books/furniture from France. I felt so comfortable, so cosy, and so relaxed. As for the rest of the apartment, it's also lovely. Pelin's place is very conveniently located, and it's very easy to get to Taksim Square by shuttle. Bagdat Avenue is only a few blocks away, so it's easy just to stay on the Asian Side of Istanbul all day long if you haven't the energy or desire to head over to Taksim. Thank you Pelin for such a wonderful stay!
Response from Pelin:
Hey Muira! Thank you very much for staying with me, it was a pleasure to meet, and host you. Looking forward to see u again. Cheers!
Pelin is very attentive and a wonderful host. Stayed w/2 kids. House is walking distance to quite part of Bagdat Street. It is 5min to Goztepe Park. There are groccery stores few steps away. House itself is well decorated, kitchen has all appliances you need for cooking.
If you are looking for a place near Bagdat Street this house should be your first option!
Response from Pelin:
Hey! Thank you and see you :)
Really enjoyed staying at Pelin's place. The house was clean and since I had a rental car it was easy to get around.
If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful retreat then this is the place to go. Awesome view, 5 minutes walk to the beach or to the road to catch a bus into Yalikavak. Clean and comfortable. Thanks to Pelin and of course Saime!!!!
Response from Pelin:
Thank you Karen!
Me and my family stayed there for almost 3 weeks.
This place is a paradise indeed! Everything was great!
Pelin was really helpful as she was available all the time online helping us with every question. Saime was wonderful she is very friendly and helpful.
The house is nice and spacious with a beautiful sea view from the upper terrace.
Yalikavak Marina and Gumusluk are really close.
Definitely would go back again!
Response from Pelin:
Thank you for staying with us Greg! You are wonderful guests. Cheers!
Pelin and her mother were absolutely wonderful hosts. Pelin was very communicative and the house in which we stayed was beautiful. Her mother made us feel as if we were right at home and gave us an incredibly special stay in the lovely town of Yakilivek. Highly recommended!
Pelin runs two Airbnb locations in Turkey, one in Istanbul and one in Bodrum - Yalikalvak. We had such a great time in Bodrum we decided to sign up again for our visit to Istanbul. Pelin is a very gracious and consciencous host. Since we didn’t have a car, she had the taxi first pick her up at her house and personally met us at the airport. She made us feel very welcome and comfortable at her home and was continuously looking for ways to make our trip special. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and highly recommend a visit to Istanbul. Should you have the opportunity to stay at either place, I am confident you won’t be disappointed.
BODRUM - YALIKAVAK, Turkey
We had an amazing 5-day stay with Saime in her charming sea-view home on the Bodrum peninsula in the town of Yalikavak. The home is a 5 min walk to the beach with great views and is a 3-story “townhome”, very clean and modern with a European-style kitchen. We were greeted with a large portion of Karpuz “Watermelon” and she even kept cold glasses in the freezer so we could enjoy our favorite beverage “ice cold”. We had the use of 2 bathrooms, our private bedroom, washing machine and the rest of the house. There is a third floor roof top deck with a beautiful view of the pool and a great place to relax after a day at the beach or touring to watch the sunset. A/C is provided in the living room & kitchen area, but our bedroom had a large fan, which did the job. The pool is steps away and is HUGE! The local beach is clean, with free lounge chairs and umbrellas, and has a little restaurant where you can mingle with locals. Very few tourists at this beach. Saime was a lovely and vivacious hostess. She introduced us to her neighbors and we even attended a local beach party together along with dancing. She does not speak much English (and we don’t speak much Turkish) but we used (website hidden) translate with great success. Saime has several outdoor cats and she is happy to keep then outside if you ask. We found Yalikavak to be the most charming of all the little towns around the peninsula. Saime’s daughter (Pelin) speaks fluent English and French and is available by phone (and sometimes in person) to translate information as needed.
We had a wonderful stay and made numerous new friends, which we never expected. We had such a lovely time in Yalikavak that we booked their other apartment in Istanbul for the remainder of our vacation in Turkey. We highly recommend staying with Saime and a visit to the area. We’ll be back.
