  • Description


    We are a family with - one english/french speaker and amazing cook dad, one fluent english designer mom, 3 year old fluent Turkish, English and Russian beginner monster son, and a 8 year old English and Spanish beginner son, and one, 7 years-old, probably smartest of the family, adopted dog. We live in Istanbul, and we have a summer house in Cesme, Aegean sea. The Summer House comes with a private beach and an exotic beachfront, and close to Alacati. With the great coastline, the Aegean is a beach lovers paradise. However, the immense beauty of many of these idyllic destinations has not gone unnoticed and thus led to some losing their charm due to overcrowding. Escape the tourist masses and large scale resorts by holidaying at our exquisite villa located on your very own private beach. It's location, character & spirit! Cesme is self-assured with its stone houses, historical windmills, fusion restaurants, wind surfing, and night life. Our house in Istanbul is on the bosphorus with a nice view. Both have extra room with a separate bathroom. And both centered in the city. We also take boat trips in Istanbul, also have a separate room.

    We need help with the boys. We want them to Spending the summer (also could be spring, autumn and winter) while playing and learning. Fluent Russian and Fluent English is a priority, a child-teaching background is a plus, as a positive attitude with patience is too. Could be swimming, singing, drama, reading and more both in these languages. Also we are expecting hosts with positive attitude, running their own errands, and be respectful and fun to hang out.
