Dating back to antiquity and boasting all the charms you’d expect of a city on the Aegean Sea, this vibrant city is a true must-see destination for any visitor to Turkey. And anyone who makes the trip will certainly be spoilt for choice when it comes to experiencing this impressive destination. The striking early 20th-century tower of Asansör will surely appeal to those in your party who adore jaw-dropping coastal views, while the bustle of Konak Square will win plenty of fans among travelers, eager to experience the city’s beating heart. Those who head just across the bay will also enjoy the wildlife of Izmir Natural Life Park. Whatever the reason for your visit, a city the size of Izmir means there are plenty of top Airbnb vacation rentals available for your stay - and these are just some of the best options for you to choose from. Check them out below.
Enticing Mediterranean temperatures, attractive sea views and a sunset to melt every heart - there’s a very good reason why this two-bedroom flat has won hundreds of fans among former guests. But, while its top scores for cleanliness and value are sure to be attractive, they are by no means the only reason why people opted for this popular Airbnb property in the past. It comes with all manner of mod-cons - including air conditioning throughout, wi-fi access and kitchen facilities. Then there’s the balconies, which really make the very most of the location. And, if you can tear yourself away from your digs, the flat is within easy reach of all manner of restaurants and shops - including a number recommended by the host.

If it’s a stunning elevated view of the bay you’re after, then you’ve come to the right place. Dubbed the ‘Window on the Bay’ by the host, this two-bedroom flat’s unobstructed view down across Izmir to the sea is an undoubted selling point, and is a big reason why the property scored very highly among former guests. Indeed, it won top marks across the board. A good option for families, it is also well-placed for easy reach of the seafront and historic attractions on foot. Prospective guests should bear in mind, however, that its fifth-floor location does not have an elevator access, so those with mobility issues may wish to look elsewhere. Amenities include a full kitchen, wi-fi access, air conditioning and a TV.

Tarihi Asansörde Denize Yakın Özel Oda 3Konak, İzmir, Turkey
Travelers looking to experience the area on a budget may wish to check this option out. Located in a hostel in the Konak neighborhood, this shared dorm room can sleep up to six people, and it comes with lockers to help keep your possessions secure. Naturally, you’ll likely be sharing with strangers if you are part of a group smaller than six, so those who value their privacy should take note, but the accommodation cost is easily the lowest on the list. Guests also have access to shared kitchen facilities and a jacuzzi, as well as wi-fi internet and a TV. Its position also places it within easy reach of the ferry terminal and Lunapark Amusement Park.

One of several hostel-style rooms within the same house, this property will suit solo travelers or couples on a budget, but may also appeal to larger groups, should other rooms be available during the window of your planned stay. Centrally located, complete with a position close to busy streets - so fans of quieter locales should bear that in mind - the room’s setting also places it within an easy reach of the charms of the city and local transport links. Guests enjoy access to a communal kitchen, wi-fi internet, and a shared balcony. The street on which the property sits boasts a number of bars and restaurants, so those looking to sample the local nightlife and food will not have far to look.
