I rented this super nice villa for a little family reunion to see my family after 4 years. We stayed there for almost a week and all we remember is beautiful memories. The villa is very well furnished and equipped with all kind of home appliances you can imagine. We totally felt at home. The neighborhood is fantastic. "Levent" is by far one of the best and safest areas in Istanbul. The villa is in walking distance to so many places such as taxi and metro stations, a number of modern malls, restaurants, bakeries, sweet shops, exchange office, grocery stores, etc. The villa is also relatively close to Bosphorus canal and Emirgan park. Do not miss these places.
I should also add that the land lady is the nicest land lady I have ever dealt with. She was extremely helpful, friendly, and generous. She provided free transfer from, and to airport and also guided us to plan visiting numerous attractions in Istanbul.
I will rent this place again in my next trip to Istanbul and do recommend it to everyone.
