  • Description


    Hello my name is Mahir
    I am married and have one little baby girl. I have been working in an airline company and traveling all around the world for over 10 years.
    I have a big house near Istanbul airport. Me and my cousin Salih, we are hosting people who are looking a place during their travel. This place gives me chance to meet different people from all over the world while I am at home. My house has 6 rooms I share some of them with travelers. but sometimes I need a hand, somebody to guide my guest while I am busy with my other duties.
    We are not expecting more than a daily house duty.
