What others had to say

Trip Advisor, Tom Shepherd, London UK 9th August 2014 “Beautiful apartment in Turkish island oasis.”

We were looking for a quiet retreat and found the islands off Istanbul, Lonely Planet raves about them…


Review #5068686 “What a treat!”

We stayed in The Karamanyan Ground Floor this Easter and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is in an amazing wooden mansion on a street of wooden mansions.


Review #5129076 “Wonderful Heybeliada, authentic place to stay” 

What a great way to visit Istanbul! We planned a trip with the family far, far away. Canary islands were the first options…….a lot of fuss by plane…..and at the end…we chose The Princes’ Islands…

A group of us (six) spent another week on this amazing island, having been in Istanbul for a few days sightseeing and shopping!


Jampilampi, Santiago, Chile (2nd September 2012)

The house is great, we stayed at the first floor apt (3 bedrooms) for 3 weeks. Huge rooms, nice bathroom, well equipped kitchen…


Fiona C, London, England. (16th Aug 2011)

We stayed in the ground floor and loved it. The flat is in an old wooden house and has a very 19th century feel – high wooden ceilings and big spacious rooms…

bathroom, well equipped kitchen…

“A very special place”

Victoria’s place is the best for rent on Heybeliada: the Ground Floor Apartment remained cool in the summer heat and was spacious with good wifi. We booked this and the top floor at the same time for a family event. Victoria herself was very accessible through email and generous enough to make the double booking work.
