what can I say about mircan and her family?great and amazing people, i am so glad to have met them, i really felt like family, i stayed before in Istanbul several times but staying at mircan and her family home will be by far the best, they are so kind, attentive and they helped me a lot,I will never forget our evenings to discuss over a good tea, I would so much keep in touch with them and come back see them quickly, mircan thank you really for everything and I can not say it enough, I love you so much :)
I had a very memorable time with a special and sweet family who showed me warmth and welcome in a different land! I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to chat and learn from them all, and the great home cooked food. I hope one day to return.
Mircan and her family were the perfect hosts. They are very friendly and knowledgeable of the city they live in. I had the best time staying with them, eating all the delicious food they cooked me and having a chat over a cup of tea. I feel like part of the family and will miss them very much xx
Mircan and her family are fantastic and offer amazing hospitality. This is a great homestay choice.
I really enjoyed my stay in Mircan s house , I felt home , lovely family , it was a nice experience, i love to repeat it , Thank you Mircan❤️
Mircan is really kind, affectionate and humorous person.
I learned a lot about family and how to enjoy life while chatting with her. And all her family are also so charming. I had a marvelous time and homemade dishes with them.
Especially all foods she cooks are healthy and tasty, making me happy everyday during stay.
Sunrise from the room I stayed was beautiful, and there is a park with a great view of Istanbul.
It was amazing homestay!
Mircan and her family are the definition of hospitable and I really enjoyed staying with them. They welcomed me into their family the moment I arrived. I enjoyed talking and laughing with them and learning more about the culture. Mircan was even kind enough to inquire what I wanted to see while I was in Istanbul and made sure I got there. She even cooked me Turkish meals from scratch. She cooks very well :)
Thank you so much for everything!
Mircan is a wonderful host. I am so glad I got to know her family. I will easily recomend them and hopfully one day come back again. Great people, food and a spectacular view of the Asian side of Istanbul from my room.
I spent one week with Mircan and her family...and it was the best part of my journey !
Mircan and all the family were welcoming and so helpful. Mircan is a curious person, she likes to share and discut with people. All we want from a homestay.
She took time to show me some places in istanbul despite her working week and her responsabilities at home. She helped me to book my flights, pick up and droped me at the airport and some more things.
Her childrens were so sweet with me... I already miss Defne. Her husband was kind too.
I thank them alot and hope still keeping in touch
It was such nice opportunity to stay with this wonderful and lovely family they helped me a lot and because of them I never felt homesickness I enjoyed my stay very much
