Being involved in it from its very first stages to its last has been a very exciting experience for me. This has given me the chance to decide on the designs of everything- from the shape of the balcony rails to the kitchen cabinet designs. We had all the woodwork done by our team of carpenters.

We have paid special care and attention to details that make the decoration unique. For example, we wanted to use a lot of design pieces; both lamps and furniture instead of mass produced ones because we believe they are what gives a house its character. Most of the wooden furniture was designed by my father who had them made by hand.

Also, we have come up with lamp designs and got them made using natural materials such as log slices, ropes and branches.

We have also used the famous Iznik tiles in the decoration because of their beauty and importance in the history of the Ottoman Empire. we wanted all this to be nice little surprises to our guests.

Perfect Stay

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 16, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Perfect few days in Istanbul. Our accommodation was warm, clean and very comfortable. The apartment is situated in a great area, fairly central for most areas or interest. The view of the Bospherous is quite stunning, unfortunately the bad weather meant we were unable to use it, but I hope we will return.
Naz the owner was very helpful and met us on arrival and went through all the information to make our stay safe and comfortable.
The accommodation was lovely, everything worked and it was great to have hot water 24/7.
I think anyone that rents this property will be more than happy, you need to take into account it is situated in a fairly hilly area and there are lots of steps to navigate. It did not worry us and another consideration is that taxis are very reasonable so it need not be a problem.
Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your experience staying at Oasis. We hope next time you come back, the weather is better :)

Alle Beschreibungen treffen vollkommen zu. Uns hat die geschmackvoll eingerichtete und ruhige Wohnung sehr gut gefallen und wir haben uns sehr sehr wohlgefühlt. Auch die Küche und die Dachterrasse mit dem wunderbaren Blick auf die Altstadt und das Marmarameer trug sehr zur Erholung und Entspannung bei. Nazli war überaus freundlich, hat uns sehr gut informiert und uns gute, hilfreiche Tipps gegeben. Wir haben die Wohnung Bekannten und Freunden bereits empfohlen.

There's No Place Like 'Home'...the Oasis

There's No Place Like 'Home'...the Oasis
  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
Our stay at the Oasis was just as expected....a home away from home. The location is ideally located within walking distance of many top destinations, including the tram which was very convenient and easily took us further than our feet could carry. We always felt safe, we found our way around with no problem, and after a long day of exploring we loved coming 'home' to hot showers, cozy beds, and then waking up to a beautiful view. The owner, Naz was readily available, very kind and helpful in anyway possible. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting Istanbul for a memorable time away from home.
Owner's Response: This 'home' feel is exactly what we're hoping Oasis to give its guests, so I'm delighted to read this review. I hope, with plenty of space and comfort, not to forget its wonderful view, Oasis will make everyone's holiday a dream one.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Our recent stay at the Oasis apartment was delightful! The descriptions and photographs are completely accurate: Warm and stylish décor; cozy bedrooms with fresh linens; and an inviting view of the Bosphorus from the kitchen/dining area. The apartment is brand-new, and everything is spotlessly clean, with all of the modern amenities completely up to their tasks, from powerful water pressure in the showers to the capacious and efficient washer and dryer, etc.. Kitchen and household supplies were plentiful, with even a landline phone for guests’ use! To top it all, the location of the apartment is super-convenient: It's a very pleasant 5-10-minute walk to the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque; the nearest Cemberlitas tram stop is about 5-10 minutes away, up a hill with steps. We didn't have the opportunity to meet the owner during our stay, but she is very responsive and helpful; all of our emails were answered very promptly; and for good measure, there is a folder in the apartment with very careful instructions & recommendations on literally everything and anything, including point-by-point directions on how to get to various places. The Oasis apartment is really a great find, and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and family!
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time to write such a descriptive review for Oasis. It's wonderful to hear that the apartment lived up to your expectations. All the areas covered in this review will be of great help to future travellers preferring to stay at Oasis. As written in this review, Oasis is especially suitable to those who are looking for more than just a place to stay, with proximity to all the major spots of cultural and historical importance and comfort it offers.

Comfortably equipped with view onto Marmara Sea

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We stayed with 3 couples in this apartment for 3 days and really enjoyed our autumn holidays there.
Each couple had his own room, equippes with a newly renovated bathroom, besides there were a small livingroom and a very well equipped kitchen as an attic room; from there we could enter a big roof terrace with that overwhelming view onto the Marmara Sea (as shown on the picture offered on the internet).
We have been sitting there, passing a sunny afternoon in a canvas chair or many an evening with fine turkish wine.
The apartment is located close to the points of touristic interest at Sultan Ahmet and to the important tram number 1, which allows to get quickly to other interesting places. In addition to it you'll find lovely places going south from the apartment, in direction of the marmara sea, for example to the fish market with cheap restaurants or to the shoemaker's section with delivery devices placed on the foot-walks.
The owner waited for us when arriving in the apartment very late and gave us an introduction for using the facilities of the apartment (i.e. using the digital door mechanism) and helped us for getting along in the local surroundings. We stayed in contact by mail all the time - and in short we have been very well received.
The apartment is very comfortable for 3 couples (maybe even 4, cause the living-room got a fourth bathroom), it's best situated in Istanbul and you'll like the roof terrace very much.
Because of the nearly luxury equipment and new renovation the price is fair, although fairly high. (However prices have increased in Istanbul in general, I think.) Therefore we recommend this property to all group-visitors without restriction of any kind and will be back here, when visiting Istanbul with several persons again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for this most helpful review that covers all the major points a guest could wonder about while making the decision to stay. I'm really glad you enjoyed the location, the interior and the view from the terrace. Just an additional point, we built the house from scratch and designed it on the basis of old Istanbul architecture which was completed at the beginning of 2013, so there has been no renovation work, everything is brand new and you are one of its first guests in its first year on the market:) I hope to have you back, all the best!

The location of the property is great for those who want to stay in the Old Town and be close to all the major sightseeing spots such as the blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Grand Bazaar and the Yerebatan Cistern. The street the house is on is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood away form nightclubs and bars. There are several small hotels on the same street. Within a five-minute walk, you get to the Sultanahmet square and the Cemberlitas tram stop. Also, the property is really close to the sea for those who like going jogging or just walking by the sea. Eminönü is only 3 stops away and that's where you take the boat to take a Bosphorus tour.
