Gorgeous View Flat In Charming Neighborhood, Short Tram Ride To Sultanahmet

50% off Nov 15 - Mar 15, excepting holidays (Dec 15 - Jan 5).

Peacefully located in Istanbul's most popular residential neighborhood away from vendors and carpet salesmen, but close enough to get there quickly when you want to. Sit on your balcony and look at a picture perfect postcard view of the mosque-studded skyline of Istanbul.

We have just renovated and newly furnished this quiet 3 bdrm, 2 bath apartment with amazing views of the Bosphorus and Sultanahmet. (hence the few reviews). New tiles in bathroom, parquet wood floors, fresh paint, and furnishings. Lots of Turkish touches and textiles throughout.

Many many restaurants and cafes, safe, charming neighborhood. On the 2nd floor (2 flights stairs) with unobstructed views from your salon, dining room, and kitchen and private balcony. We have another apartment with the same layout on the floor beneath this one. Rent both together for a total of 6 bedrooms and 3 baths. If this one is not available ask about our Cihangir 2 flat on the below.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Hi Robin,



I just wanted to thank you for having us in your beautiful flat. We did had a great time. I believe the pictures don't make justice to the apartment.



We took good care of the apartment, and left it on the best condition we could. I will recommend it to our friends. I will write a review soon on BRVO.



All the best for you and Davide. Hopefully i get back one day to Istanbul.



Best.

I am a Californian by birth, who left my tribe 10 years ago in search of a new home in a new country. Four continents, 30 countries, and many hundreds of stories later, I settled in 3 countries: Turkey is where I formed my company Oneworld, Bali is my spiritual home, and the USA, is my home of origin, where my family resides.I have a heart connection with friends in Greece, Nepal, India, Brazil, Thailand, Argentina, France, England, Mexico, Bali and beyond. The world is my home.

I write stories about our diverse lives that remind us of our universal humanity wherever we are, regardless of where we live, what we believe, or what we look like. Under my Turkish company, OneWorld ltd, I provide private homes as short term rentals for global travelers, so that they might experience this amazing city in a more authentic manner than possible in a hotel.

It is my dream that by living in each others' worlds - experiencing new sounds, tastes, art, architecture, music, beliefs, and ways of being, that we will grow to view the planet in all its rich diversity as Our World - OneWorld.

Robin Sparks purchased this apartment in 2013

I've had my eye on this flat for years and it finally became available last spring. Our Cihangir apartment located below this one has been so popular and we have had so many requests to house large groups, that I was thrilled to add Cihangir 3 to Oneworld's collection of short-term vacation rentals in istanbul.

Views beyond compare. Quiet neighborhood and building. Easy access to all the sites in best neighborhood. Lovely balcony with view. Only 2 flights of stairs from street level. Most flats in Istanbul have only 1 bathroom. This flat has 2.

ISTANBUL....SO EXOTIC, SO RUSTIC, SO BEAUTIFUL, ESPECIALLY FROM THE BALCONY VIEW.

  • 4 of 5
My family of six (3 adults, 3 teens) stayed here for 2 nights. The flat accommodated us all nicely. In terms of decor and creature comforts, I'd say it is above average. It was cozy, the beds were comfortable and it was clean. What makes the flat really stand out was the balcony and views of the Strait of Bosporus. Simply gorgeous on a sunny day and even on a cloudy day. The view made the 3 flight climb up to the flat at the end of the day worth the effort. An added bonus of the flat is the second toilet. (I do not need to go into detail about that.)

The street the flat is located on is quiet (most of the time) and within walking distance, uphill or downhill, of restaurants. We rented the flat during the school week. I mention this because there is a school in view from the balcony that had all the bells, yells and laughter that every school around the world has. I personally like the sounds, but others might not. Taksim Sqaure and Istiklal Ave. was within walking distance too.

The property manager and owner were pleasant to deal with too. They arranged for an airport transfer service. I would recommend that service for a large group like us.

A GREAT VACATION RENTAL IN ISTANBUL

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week in this great apartment. We were 2 grand-parents, 2 parents, and 2 small girls. There was sufficient room for all of us, young and old. The view from this apartment is stunning. You can see the Bosperus, the old Palace, multiple fameous moskes, the ferries running back and forth, the fishing fleet, the sun-rise, the sun-set. This view can't be beat. Location is also terrific. We often walked to the street car or ferry, and quickly got to the historical sights we came to visit. This vacation rental is a very good value. Only reason for not rating it a 5 star is that the hot / cold water temp in the shower was extremly difficult to regulate. We took tub-baths instead of showers, and that solved the water temperature regulation problem for us.
The local staff we delt with were great. We used their offer to arrange transport from airport to the apartment on arrival, and back to the airport on departure, and that worked also great. Highly recommended.

BREATHTAKING ISTANBUL

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of spending 9 nights in this amazing flat. The view simply takes your breath away. Located in a quiet residential area within walking distance to public transportation to get you anywhere in the city. David provided me with a half day tour of the city that got me acclimated and showed me where all the tourist attractions where. I loved everything about Istanbul and having this beautiful flat as a home base was key. Look forward to staying here again in the futurel

CIHANGIR

  • 5 of 5
We loved the flat, everything about it was great. The description of the flat was accurate, it was very clean and well maintained, light and bright and it was just a joy to come back from sightseeing everyday to enjoy the balcony and view over the Bosporous.
We loved the fruitshop nearby, the small coffeehouse and the supermarket. We would definately like to return to Istanbul and when so, again to this flat. Thank you again.
