The space

Hi, my name is Emrecan, I work at eBay. I want to share my home and renting private room.

The room is furnished with a twin size bed, rug, a wardrobe (hangers, pillowcases, bed sheets, towels) and a desk&work-lamp (working with USB). The rest of the apartment is fully furnished. There is a fully equipped kitchen. You could find internet (50 Mbps - limitless) and hot water 7/24. The room is warm in winter. So, you wont never feel cold.

We are two people living in the apartment. My roommate is living in big room. Current roommate is male and he is studying art - he is a painter. We both are easygoing and very friendly.

Praised be Emrecan the Mighty Host. He is all so warm and nice, you quickly feel comfortable around him. But the apartment also has a part in this, with all the colorful walls that surround you. I called him simply "Host", during the time of my stay. Host is quite proficient with his ukulele and singing and at times I had the honor of accompanying him with my harmonica. So I especially recommend you this place, if you're into making music. Host buys great coffee by the way, so you could make some in the morning with his French press, recently replaced. And there is a kitten called Marla, named after the infamous lady from Fight Club. As her namesake, our Marla is all dark, looking like a jaguar, but much rather a peaceful beast, you'd love making it run around. I should also say a thing or two about what's around here. Too many cafes. Too many nice places to eat. A lot of artsy people around. I haven't got much of a chance to verify the following, being a native Turkish speaker, but I also think the majority of the people here speak English quite well, so that should be a plus if you are a foreigner who's trying to narrow down the possibilities. Anyways, give Emrecan a chance, you won't regret it.

It was an absolute fun to live for a week at Emrecan's. Such an interesting personality, I enjoyed our discussions. The room looked like the photos, nothing more and nothing less. He was welcoming and ready to answer all my questions. The area is very nice and quiet. Close to the metro station that can take you to the European side of Istanbul. Cafes, restaurants and supermarkets located in the same street. The apartment is safe. Simply, if you don't mind sunlight neither a cozy room, Emrecan's place is the best !
