Общение с гостями
I personally welcome the guests at the apartment, give the details and reply the questions before and also during their stay.
I'll show up in minutes if necessary as I live in the same neighbourhood. Any contacts through the mobile or via email will be replied in minutes.
To make you comfortable and don’t bother with the shopping, I will be preparing a complimentary welcome package for you. Fresh milk, cornflakes/granola, bread, cheese, eggs and tea will be included in it.
Also I will be glad to give a brief of what you can do around to discover this amazing city.
Moreover I and my husband like to meet and host new people coming all around the world. So we would be happy to accompany some of your day trips or meet for a coffee or dinner out off our business times.

For 10 years I hold a managing position at the two top travel e-commerce companies and I learned so many things that can help you have a fabulous experience while you are travelling.
My desire to explore the world never fades out and I enjoy it more than anything. After travelling handfull of European cities for both leisure and business purposes, I went to Africa, where I admired the sunrise and rural life, California where I want to keep my experience to myself especially in Vegas!, Japan where I felt in love with the people and the perfect harmony of nature, Cambodia where I had spend full days to explore the amazing ancient temples, India where I found new motivations for my soul and Vietnam where I enjoyed the fantastic food and authentic atmosphere.
This is what I do. At least one a year me and my husband head overseas to major world cities to meet new people and have new experiences. And also we are always looking for ways to serve you better ~ we love what we do; both travelling and hosting.
I have a strong interest in books, sailing, music, design, architecture and movies. I love cooking and vociferous reader of recipe books and food blogs. Also I enjoy taking photos and sharing them on my Instagram - deniz_ozkan
When I travel, I prefer to live as much like a local and stay away from the "main attractions". I am passionate to show you that "local side of the city" that's why I have prepared my special tips of Istanbul to share it with you and list all the stuff that I like best.
I'm here full time, not an absentee owner.
You can contact me for any questions you have.
Hope to meet you soon!
