  • Heaven!

    "We arrived hot, tired and bad tempered after an over crowded flight full of all-inclusive holiday makers. Frank and Berner opened the door to their extraordinary home and all was instantly forgotten. We lay by the salt water Balinese pool with no need to go out as Berner had thoughtfully provided a welcome plate of delicious treats and Frank provided an accompanying bottle of his own Cabernet Sauvignon. Vedat the groundsman appeared with a plate of freshly picked figs and we were convinced we'd died and gone to heaven. The suites are perfect, private from one an another and beautifully decorated with Frank's eclectic collection of antiques. Frank is a mine of information and effortlessly organised car hire and a boat trip in a guluk from Torba for a day's excursion as well as endless and patient directions to excellent food and wonderful sight-seeing. Berna's boundless generosity means good recommendations for beaches with children, the best hamams and wonderful dinners. If you're lucky enough to be there when they host one it'll be an unforgettable experience. We were lucky enough to be there for not only a dinner but in time to give Frank a hand with harvesting grapes for making his wine. Having a car is essential. Say hello to your inner adventurer and gourmet and goodbye to cares and worries for as long as you're in their hilltop heaven."

  • Very Nice Apartment in Beyoglu

    "We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment and it helped us experience Istanbul. The apartment was clean, the kitchen had all the necessities, and the view off the balcony was spectacular. Pros: Location, just a block off the main pedestrian way, Istiklal, and in close proximity to a bunch of good restaurants and shops. The apartment was hot and stuffy when we arrived, but opening the balcony window and kitchen windows created a nice, cooling cross breeze. The bedroom is upstairs in a finished attic. It's nice, but is very stuffy until you get the air con going. I'd recommend starting the air con as soon as you arrive in preparation for the evening. The clothes washer was very helpful and we air-dried our clothes on the clothes rack provided on the balcony. Nahide was very helpful throughout our stay. Pros: Proximity to Istiklal, Taksim Square, the Tunel funicular to other public transport connections, restaurants and shops in the backstreets south of Istiklal. Other pros include cleanliness, the nice cross breeze, the large kitchen, and the fanstastic balcony with beautiful views of Sultanahmet and Galata Tower. The views were spectacular. The security door at the entrance to the building was secure. Cons: The attic bedroom was stuffy until the air con caught up. In hotter weather than we had, I wonder if the air con would be enough. Lots of stairs to get up to the apartment. The exterior of the building was not very pleasant, but the apartment itself was very nice. Tips: Walk down Istiklal, but for better restaurants and fewer crowds, try the side streets in the blocks just south of Istiklal, all the way up to Taksim. Hidden gems on those side streets. For a traditional Turkish breakfast, kahvalti, we enjoyed Cafe Firuz, which was a few blocks south and east. Watch Anthony Bourdain's show on Istanbul for more eating ideas. Another tip, hire Istanbul's Best Taxi Driver, as we did. We had a great day with him for a very reasonable price. besttaxidriver.com Thank you, Nahide!"
