About this listing
Wonderful apartment situated in the hearth of Yeldeğirmeni, Kadıköy. Access to all parts of the city due to its vicinity to the harbor metro & bus (10 min. by foot). House with 4 rooms, equiped kitchen, spacious living, large terrace and cat :-)
Our apartment is located in the hearth of İstanbul's artiste and artisan neighborhood, yeldeğirmeni, Kadıköy. Yurttas Sk is in close vicinity to the harbor, metro and bus hub, allowing for easy access to all parts of the city. We live on the third and highest floor of the building (thanks to which we have a wonderfull terrace as well, see the pics). The flat is spacious with a nice livingroom, big bedrooms, fully equiped kitchen. We live here with 3 people (and 2 cats :-) ) and we love to cook and meet new people.
You will of course have your own bedroom, have full access to the kitchen, livingroom and terrace. And we are also their for you if you need any advıces about Istanbul, what to see, what to visit or were to have a drink or see a concert...
Interaction with guests
If you want to join us for dinner or drinks (ayran or rakı...) you are more then welcome to join us. There is in fact almost always somebody in the house. If you would like to play tavla and drink çay, we are happy to oblige too. This is Istanbul after all ;-)
It is without a doubt the most wonderfull neighborhood of Istanbul. That is if you like the bohemean ambiance of Turkey's artistes, artisans and activists. This old orthodox greek neighborhood counts less cars due to its narrow streets; is more quite, and even has some cyclist driving around (a true exception in this town :-) )The close vicinity to Moda (area with some of the best restaurants and bars in Istanbul, 15 minutes away by foot) as well as the pedestrianised seaside area (with its great view on the bosphorus and its princess islands) is also an absolute plus.
Yurttaş Sk is 10 minutes by foot from some of the main transport hubs of Istanbul, namely Kadıköy harbor, Marmaray Metro station, as well as Kadikoy metro station (line Kadıköy-Kartal) and Kadıköy bus and dolmuş hub.
