I am a travel writer who rents flats in my favorite places on the planet to global travelers. I believe that when we 'live' in the places we visit, even briefly, we connect on a deeper level. After all, it is mostly the residents who make up the character of the places we visit. I began renting flats to stay in myself when I traveled many years ago, and learned that my experiences were far richer when I traveled in this manner. And so, I look for my favorite neighborhoods and apartments in my favorite cities, and provide them to other global travelers. Connection is what excites me. Ask me for my blog address for more information. By the way, I was in Istanbul during the demonstrations and I am still here, in fact extending my stay because it is a heartwarming time to be here. I realize that most of what you see is the news lately are protests, but that was contained in specific areas, easy to avoid. All is peaceful now and the current movement is a grass roots one - a reaching out to the people of Anatolia to inspire them to also stand up for freedom of speech. Turkey is evolving and it is an exciting time to be here. (written Aug 2013). You will be entirely safe. 99.9% of Istanbul was entirely unaffected by the demonstrations.
Perfect location in a charming neighborhood surrounded by cafes and tea gardens. The layout of this flat will give you lots of room and privacy. And you can get to all the sites easily from here. Right next door to Antique Alley in Cucurcuma.
I can get anywhere I want to go in minutes and the area is very safe. Out of all our flats, this one has the most neighborly feeling. City views. And this apartment happens to be flat area in a city that is full of steep hills.
