A FEW THINGS You Should Know:
ROOM WITH A VIEW
The view of the "Old City" Sultanahmet and over the roofs of Istanbul is gorgeous. The price is you must walk up to get here! In historic buildings and old cities, stairs are quite common. Ours are wide, lit well, clean and sturdy. But, if they will be difficult for you, a hotel with an elevator will be your best choice for a view.
Smoking is not permitted at all in the home. Allergies and all that. Guests who smoke may do so outside of the home.
Consistent with many homes here, this is a shoeless household. Outdoor shoes should stay just inside by the entry foyer. You are most welcome to wear socks, house slippers of your own, or borrow a pair here for your stay. This keeps dust down, relaxation and good energy high.
MAKE-UP & STRIP-DOWN
This is a home first. To keep costs reasonable, we make sure the home is clean and provide fresh linens and towels. You make up your own bed when you arrive, and strip it down when you leave. You'll also do a basic sweep and empty and your trash.
Same as above, this is a beloved home, so we ask that you generally tidy up after yourself when leaving. This includes throwing things away in the proper receptacles and washing, drying and putting away dishes. Enjoy yourself and be comfortable, and when you leave, it should be as if you were never there.
If you confirm for one or two persons, please be that number of guests. We don't mind our guests having periodic visitors, but no de facto live-ins.
Please provide photo copy of your legal ID and your emergency contact info when you arrive, for your safety and ours. You can bring the ID copy with you. We know many people are traveling internationally. Should we need to be of service, that will help us help you. We will also confirm your cell phone/text number and email address

- the house rules and home condition
- a basic checklist of tidying up when you leave. we have the house thoroughly cleaned, but prefer guests that are happy to clear their debris.
