Sisli Villa Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 2 Story Villa On River 175mt From A Sandy Black Sea Beach
Rose Villa was built by our father as his summer home. It was meant to be a secluded and private escape from the insanity that is Istanbul. Success!
With 2 large double bedrooms one single guest suite and a nursary/childs room, it is very comfortable for a large family or for a couple looking for privacy and a chance for romance.
The fully functional kitchen and open first floor plan connects the kitchen to the dining and lounge area keeps everyone in eye sight.
The natural gas water heater and radiator boiler keeps the house warm and cozy year round, and you never run out of hot water for either of the two showers and the bathtub upstairs.
The Rose Villa interior was designed and built with natural woods for a warm, rustic, inviting feel. The furnishings are uncomplicated and add to the inviting feel. The antiques through out the home are from the family, not purchased for effect.
Although electronic entertainment exists in the form of Satellite TV, DVD, and CD player, they do not dominate the space and the WiFi hub is centrally located in the home and provides service everywhere inside the house and on the front and back balcony.
Enjoy a walk in the garden surrounded by Roses, flowering bushes, trees (all of which are named) and a soothing sit down on the jetty over the river. During the summer season you can even enjoy the portable 4 1/2 mt by 1 mt pool.

Lee (an American) and Jale (British-Turkish) are tutors in the Behavioral Sciences Department of a private university in Istanbul. We love to travel and meet new people. Currently our lives are dedicated to helping others live a life of peace and balance, and making sure our young son has the best opportunity at life we can give him.
When our father got this property is was a vacant lot next to a river. He built the home with love and the future in mind. Many of the plantings he did. We were happy to enjoy this home with him until 2011 when he passed. We have kept it and maintained it for our own holidays and escapes since, and have decided to share that with others. We have had a wonderful time entertaining groups of friends and family here, along with just getting away from it all for a short break.
Some of the Unique things about this property are the closeness of the Beach and the river access with a jetty. There is also government limitations on what can and cannot happen on the other side of the river, which means that nothing can be built there, although some campers may use that space. The plantings of honeysuckle and the natural blackberry growth on the property lines along with the natural willow growth means that the groomed garden remain private and secluded.
