Temperature are doing our job in a professional sense of family and friends we have embarked on the road with the name Eves Home homes reflect their quality.
We wanted to stay in Bursa so we could ski in Uludag during the daytime, and go out and about in central Bursa during the evening. Serhat's place was perfect for this - it was in the centre of Bursa, and 2 min walk to pastry shop for breakfast and a taxi stop to get a ride up the mountain each day. (We could also have taken a mini-bus up to Uludag from the stop 15 mins walk away, but for 5 of us the price of a taxi was only a little bit more.)
The inside of the apartment was basic but functional - it had everything we needed. And at around £8 each per night (there were 5 of us) we certainly couldn't complain! Everything was clean.
I would certainly recommend Serhat's place if you are looking for low price accommodation in central Bursa.
The house is spacious for the 4 of us. Its quite near to the city centre so it was easy for us to go around. Everything is good except for the cleanliness of the place. It wasn't clean thoroughly when we arrived. And there was some unknown leftover food inside the fridge. Other than that its good. :) The host and his friend is also friendly. Serhat's friend picked us and guided us to the apartment. And his friend could speak english quite well so it was easy for us who can't speak turkish. :)
Serhat is very cooperative host even though he didn't speak fluent English his respond is impeccable.We stayed for 3 night in Serhat's Apt during second week of January 2014.We departed by Ferry on Friday at 20.30 pm from Yenikapi feriboat to Guzelyali feribot (about 1.5 hours trip) and hop the public bus "GY" from the ferry terminal to Emek metro station and arrived quite late that night around 11 pm at the nearest metro station ( sehrekustu) to the apartment. He managed to pick us up at the metro station,a very helpful provision since we didn't know the exact location. We are a group of 4 adults and 2 children with 4 large suitcases , thus Serhat eventually have to make a two trip just to drive us to the premises and he kept smiling which is pleasant. Serhat owns the entire 3 storey building and It's located in the second floor. It doesn't have elevator with quite narrow stairs.The moment u walk into the apartment it feels like home it's neat and clean has a complete Kitchenette and appliances,the beds are nice,there are 4 real beds and 1 sofa bed, (this apartment can easily accommodates 6 adults) towels provided, enough blankets, heaters worked well, hot water runs well, bathroom's clean, lot's windows ,quite airy apartment, there is small dining table for two , One master bedroom and a spacious living room which we are converted to bedroom to accommodate our needs during our stay. Serhat respond quickly to all our demands and he helped us planning our days that night. The Wifi connection is good but it was on and off , we contact Serhat and he respond quite adequate. Location of Apartment is uphill within walking distance to the city center and malls. 10 lira taxi drive to Teleferik (Cable car to Uludag Ski resort) or 20 min walk or to the Dolmushes station to Uludag .Few bakeries and supermarkets that sells fresh bread and fresh fruit, local Turkish restaurant also nearby, Local market, Posh Turkish cafe, Public Park, Bursa grand bazaar . it's awesome! we usually cook our breakfast with Bursa fresh products as they are taste awesome ;) .The value for money is the main advantage due the apartment location as it's very conveniently located to all of the desired places of sightseeing and shopping in Bursa ! We would like to come back again with our family in the nest winter for sure. Thank you for the experience, Serhat we wish you success and prosperity to all the staff!
We stayed for five days. This house is a center of Bursa.
So we moved anywhere easily. And Serhat Karahan is friendly.
If you come to Bursa, I want to recommend this house.
We had a great time in Bursa thanks to the strategic location of Serhat's house. The house was clean and complete. Will recommend to anyone who wants to experience Bursa (and Uludag).
I spended the weekend together with 3 friends in Serhats flat. It was a very nice and relaxing stay. The flat is in the center of Bursa, so you can get to almost all places by walking. We found everything we needed in the flat like stuff for cooking, a map, towels, sheets etc. We really enjoyed to stay in Serhats flat :) Thanks.
It is a bright and large appartment near the center and the highlights of the city. I believe the owner Serhat Karahan started to let the appartment, so it was not fully equipped for cooking and put away your clothes. Mr Karahan was very helpful to solve these problems. We had a pleasant time there

Serhat and his wife were great hosts. We had a very enjoyable time in Bursa and would definitely recommend Serhat as a host to any travelers looking for apartment rentals.
