Kadıköy airbnb review
Volkan and Duygu’s house is magical. First of all, it’s an actual house – this is the first one we’ve been in after five months of living in Airbnbs. But it’s not just a house. It has three floors – kitchen, bathroom and patio on the first, living room on the second (with Netflix!) and bedroom and bathroom on the top.
There are outdoor entries on the main and bottom floors
and they’re both street level.
How does this happen, you may ask? The house sits on the top of a hill on a corner, giving it some cool angles.
It’s beautifully decorated with obvious thought and care, including live plants(!), nice furniture, beautiful drapes and other accessories. The bathroom was well-stocked and the kitchen has pots and pans, utensils, knives and even some food. It was also extremely clean when we got here.
Volkan and Duygu were great hosts. They were able to accommodate our schedule and met us at the house to show us around and answer our questions. They also gave us local recommendations, which we very much appreciated.
We also love Kadıköy! It seems like a more relaxed district than Fatih (where we stayed before coming here), it’s quieter (we can actually hear the calls to prayer) and there are a bunch of community cats wandering around. There are also a ton of great restaurants and places to shop.
We would 100% recommend this home for a stay in Istanbul, with one caveat. The Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazaar and other landmarks require a ferry ride. However, the ferry is easy to get to and it comes every ten minutes so that’s not a big challenge.
