Hemenkiralik.com Receives Investment from 212 Capital Partners

Hemenkiralik.com, an online marketplace for people to list, and book short-term rentals in Turkey, has received an investment from 212 Capital Partners, the early-stage venture capital fund advised by 212 Ltd.

Founded by Remi Onur, Mehmet Ulku, and Alper Kaya, Hemenkiralik.com assists users in finding accommodation during their stay in Turkey: homeowners can list their available spaces for free; travelers have access to an objective review system with user-generated reviews about homeowners and their available listings.

Commenting on the investment, Numan Numanbayraktaroglu, Managing Director of 212 Ltd, said: “Growth in international tourist arrivals exceeds the growth of hotel bed capacity in Turkey, leading to a need for additional short-term stay space. 30 million Turks alone participate in domestic tourism for 45 million nights on an annual basis. There are 4 million secondary homes in Turkey with a significant portion occupied during holidays for less than two months per year.
“Hemenkiralik will be the leading online market place for short-term rentals targeting the real estate inventory in Turkey. The Founders have extensive experience in the Turkish internet space and we are excited about the opportunity to work with them”.
