Property description

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.

There are beds for 6 + a sleeper sofa. This flat is most comfortable for 4-6 guests, but can accommodate up to 8 with use of sleeper sofa. We recommend renting this flat in combination with the flat on the floor below for groups of more than 6. There are 2 enclosed bedrooms in each flat + an alcove bedroom in each(our Sultan suites) just off the dining room divided by a curtain. The sleeper sofa is in the salon.

There are many many restaurants and cafes in this 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Cihangir:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
