Hi Lawrence & Victoria
It was a magical holiday. I wanted to say what a cool guy Husyein is. He really looked after us. There was a torrential downpour one day and as is the case with old houses (I live in a Victorian terraced house so I know) and water cascaded down the wall in the kitchen from the wooden joint in the ceiling. We phoned Husyein and said “water” in Turkish (dodgy pronunciation from the back of Lonely Planet guide to Istanbul). He came over immediately, checked it out and was up sorting out the blocked downpipe, fixing the problem in no time at all. We also had an island wide power cut and the boiler wouldn’t work afterwards – he came and got that sorted too. He’s a star! I have to say that we loved staying in your beautiful mansion. You’ve done a wonderful job and I can see why you fell in love with the place.
All the best.
