About the Owner
We offer sensitively renovated historic apartments with elegance and character, in the fascinating district of Beyoglu: the heart of Istanbul. We're a small Turkish-British family project. Julia and Tarkan have led international lives based in Istanbul then Singapore, most recently balancing between England and Istanbul. Along the way we've raised our son, now 12 years old, across the cultures as we've steadily grown our other baby - this holiday apartment project which we now run full-time. We understand the makings of a great city-break stay and we try our very hardest to deliver it to our guests in Istanbul. Your questions and booking will be handled by us and then, on arrival, Tarkan's family and our team, with their natural Turkish hospitality, will welcome you to your apartment.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Stylish, Quiet & Great location
Thanks for a fantastic stay! The apartment is stylish, quiet, well furnished with comfy beds and nice big shower! The location is great, particularly for foodies with great cafes and restaurants right outside. Only a short walk to everything – very close to the Galata Tower, across the river to all the tourist attractions and great shopping around the corner.
We also did the orientation walk organised by the apartment owners and had a fabulous time, finding out all the local hidden gems. The little cafe around the corner (Privato Cafe) is fantastic – wonderful food and great hospitality. We loved it and will be back.

From the Owner
“Galata has a genuine, very welcoming and diverse community with an intriguing mix of cafes, restaurants, small grocery shops and artistic boutiques. Elegant 19th Century buildings line cobbled streets, with discoveries waiting around every corner. No matter where you wander, you’ll always find your way back to Galata Tower, which has been a well-loved landmark for the last 700 years. Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a couple of minutes’ walk away. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 12 minutes by public transport or 20 minutes on foot. In the other direction, by Metro, you can be in Şişli (for Istanbul’s biggest shopping mall) in 10 minutes or Levent (for Istanbul’s business district) in 15 minutes.”
