Welcome to our beautifully restored Greek stone house. Built around 1895, it is a peaceful, atmospheric space full of beauty and charm . Let hosts Monika and Sedat supply all the useful local information and prepare a memorable breakfast too!
“After a month’s stay, I’ve become infected with Ayvalik’s magical aura. It was the town’s loving and generous people; the idillic nature; the scent of burning wood permeating the town’s salty air; the endless maze of cobble stone alleys and old architecture of olive oil presses, soap plants, churches and mosques. This laidback sea town invites long walks on its miles and miles of accessible beaches. You can almost smell the millions of olive trees and pine and oak green covers. It has its sporadic winter showers but with a tempered climate. Sit on any of the benches dotting miles and miles of seafront and watch squawking seabirds dive into the calm sea. Watch fishermen displaying their daily catch on their aging boats. Shop at dozens of olive oil shops or visit the Thursday or Sunday market (pazar). Ayvalik’s spellbound journey wouldn’t have been complete without Monika and Sedat, the Stairway owners who become more of friends and family than hosts, along with their many cultured friends of Turkish and German backgrounds. Ayvalik and Stairway was what made this experience unforgettable. The couple never sit still. They’re either receiving visitors for tea and coffee or holding gatherings for friends and customers. They prepare the Mezza plates, play Turkish music, blues, jazz and oldies on the main room’s speakers or invite musicians to play live. Monika speaks good English and will give you all the special tips for the best eateries, cheese and olive oil shops. The third floor is reserved for yoga; and females can book a professional masseuse. This renovated old Greek home and the room you’ll occupy exudes real warmth and peace. The thick stone walls, high ceiling; the red brick arches inside; the wooden round antique table and the iron wood burning furnace in the salon and the wooden floors will send your thoughts a century back. Yep, this was a fulfilled dream escape. Try it.”

“It was our first experience at Airbnb, I was very nervous, but the home was more beautiful than the photos. Although we went to both the house and Ayvalık in winter, we liked it very much. The house was clean and very stylish. There is no need to burn a fireplace, in fact the house was quite hot, but we also enjoyed the fireplace. We had an unforgettable 5-day holiday. Markets and ATMs are only a 10-minute walk away and we found everything easily. When we needed help, Mrs. Nelly immediately helped. In the summer, it will be our first choice for a holiday. Hope to see you again ”
