Modern architecture and a great view of the Bosphorus.

I am originally from Istanbul, now living abroad, but visit Istanbul often. I stayed in this apartment in October 2011. This is indeed a very nice apartment with a modern architectural style and a great view of the Bosphorus. It has a very large terrace (VRBO refers to it as “patio”, but I think “terrace” is a better word, as it is not on the ground level but on the roof (6th) floor of an apartment building.) The apartment is clean and the furnishings are new. The pictures and the descriptions of the apartment and the amenities in the VRBO are accurate.
There is a small grocery shop called Narcuteri only a few steps (to the South) from the apt. It has a decent selection of wine, cheese and carries even some fruits and vegetables. If you need a larger selection, then you can try MacroCenter inside the Istinye Park shopping mall. This modern mall with about 300 stores is well worth a visit (15 min by taxi). It also has a Bazaar section with some good restaurants, food and souvenir shops.
For breakfast you can go to the Oba Restaurant (7-8 min walk North), where you can enjoy a rich buffet breakfast by the water. (Oba also has a café with the same name shortly before the restaurant part, but it serves a buffet only on Sundays.)
There is taxi stand about 100m to the South and a few restaurants there. If you walk about 15 min further to the South, you come to the Bebek district, where you can find many shops, banks/ATMs, restaurants and cafes.
