Property description

The views from this spacious flat will mesmerize you! Enjoy a glass of wine with some of Istanbul's most magnificent views laid out before you.

Peacefully located in Istanbul's most popular residential neighborhood, close to all the major sites. Sidewalk cafes and charm in this turn of the century neighborhood populated with Istanbul's literary and film industry types, plus the favorite neighborhood for foreigners. Cobblestone streets, cafes, shops, tea gardens, charm! Google "Cihangir" to read about this lovely neighborhood. Close to all the sites.

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. Lovely Turkish tiles, parquet wood floors, Turkish carpets, and comfy beds and furnishings throughout. Lots of Turkish touches. Charming, comfortable and quiet.

Balcony, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, kitchen with a view, comfy salon with sofa sleeper, dining room with a view. 2nd floor (2 flights of stairs).

This flat is most comfortable for 6 guests, but can accommodate up to 8 with use of sleeper sofa. 8 is a bit crowded, but it is possible. We recommend combining this flat with the flat on the floor below for groups of more than 6.

You will love this flat. I am a travel writer and this is my favorite perch in Istanbul.

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 created my Oneworld Vacation Rentals, Bali is my spiritual home, and California 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 Beyoğlu, Istanbul, Turkey:
I've had my eye on this flat for years and it finally became available in 2013. Our other 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 Istanbul's most popular neighborhood. Lovely balcony with view. Only 2 flights of stairs from street level.
