FAMILY FRIENDLY - LARGE LUXURY 4 BEDROOM DETACHED VILLA WITH OWN POOL

Catalkoy House Rental Photos and Description

4 double bedrooms (1 en suite) and 2 bathrooms

Habibi House has beautiful gardens and a lovely pool. It was built in 2005 and stands at the eastern edge of the character-full Turkish Cypriot village of Catalkoy. Accommodation for eight/nine people is spacious and light and the house has been tastefully, yet comfortably furnished. All the furnishings are co-ordinated and give the house an easy, relaxed atmosphere and elegance. Every room has windows on two sides with one leading to either a balcony or terrace in nearly every case. Floors are tiled throughout. The sitting room has comfortable sofas and opens out onto a dining terrace overlooking the pool. There is a large landscaped garden area. The house is ideal for a family or two to relax by the pool, enjoy the local surroundings or to explore the area, with Girne (Kyrenia) for night life and the famous cultural monastery village of Bellapais nearby, crusader castles in the mountains and the many quiet little bays along the coast for fishing, bathing, boating and diving. Catalkoy village boasts three excellent restaurants within walking distance from the house and there are many more bars and eating houses if you decide to take a five minute drive.

Flights, taxis and car hire: Flights are available into Ercan airport in the North and Larnaca airport in the South. Ercan is about 20 miles away and Larnaca about 50 miles. If you choose to fly into Larnaca or Ercan, a taxi can easily be arranged on line to bring you to Northern Cyprus. We can recommend a good car hire company also.

More than 80 flights per week arrive at North Cyprus airport Ercan during the summer. There are 15 flights from three UK airports ; Stansted, Gatwick and Heathrow. Most of them arrive in the evening.

Turkish Airlines fly to Ercan with stop-overs in Turkey.

Gulf/Cyprus Air, British Airways, Helios and many other airlines fly to Larnaca.

Payment and Cancellation: Payment: 30% is payable on booking with the balance due 8 weeks prior to arrival.

Cancellation charges: 8 weeks or more in advance - Deposit forfeited. 55 to 29 days in advance - 60%. Up to 28 days in advance - 100%. You are advised to insure against cancellation. There is also a 200 pound security deposit against breakages and damage payable in advance and returnable once property is vacated.

Habibi house Spacious villa Fabulous pool

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Habibi House as our summer vacation with our 2 teenage children. Our hosts Bidi and Steve gave us good advice and help with their local knowledge. The house is spacious, clean and comfortable and well supplied with appliances and equipment. The garden is full of amazing colour and clever design by the owners. We spent hours in and around the pool which was great fun as its such a good size. There are many places of all types to eat and all of them are very welcoming. The sea generally was as warm as a bath. We liked the relaxing evenings at Kyrenia and the abbey was stunning at Bellapais. The whole experience of Northern Cyprus was so interesting and if i return then i hope it will be to Habibi House

Can't wait to come back!!

We returned to Habibi House this year for a one-week stay, having previously visited in 2010.
We absolutely love Habibi House, beautiful mature gardens with a fantastic pool we just spent hours just relaxing in, although it’s certainly big enough for a serious swim if you’re so inclined.
The house has everything we could wish for, spacious air conditioned bedrooms, well appointed modern kitchen, although it has to be said we didn’t use the cooking facilities much as there are so may great restaurants within just a few miles radius. Also a barbecue where we enjoyed food from the local stores.
If we’re being really picky we would suggest a light directed over the barbecue area to make cooking a little easier. But that’s about the only thing we think the property needs to improve it.

The pool area is completely private and not “overlooked” and really sets Habibi House apart from many of the villas we have stayed at over the years, it’s just so warm and inviting as is the rest of the house.
We love going to new places and have stayed in some great properties, but this is the only Villa we have returned to, so impressed are we with it.

In fact a week after our return we contacted Bidi & Steve to book again for next year and we’re really looking forward to our next stay in July 2014, this time for two weeks with some friends who we know will thoroughly enjoy this beautiful house, gardens and pool as well as Northern Cyprus.

August 2012 - a fantastic stay at Habibi House

  • 5 of 5
We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday in the TRNC. Key to this was having Habibi House as our base. It is cleverly positioned within its generous plot on the outskirts of the village and feels very secluded - there are only a few neighbours anyway!

The house is spacious, well-equipped & beautifully decorated, but the outdoor space is what really sets this villa apart. The gardens are beautiful, and there are two separate areas for sitting & dining out. The pool is large & well maintained and was an absolute delight in the August heat (& the lights meant we could stay in it watching the stars well into the evening!).

Catalkoy is a great location. It is far away from the hustle & bustle of the nearest town (Kyrenia) but close enough to easily pop in for dinner, shopping or sightseeing (there are also many local shops & restaurants). Habibi House is also close to all the major sights (Bellapais, Buffavento, Turtle beach etc) but the roads are good too so we found it easy to travel further afield. It was always a delight to return to Habibi House at the end of the day.

Bridget & Steve were excellent hosts; welcoming, informative & unobtrusive!

Highly recommended by the Owen family!

Summer holiday August 2012

  • 5 of 5
Wow what a wonderful villa to have stayed in all 9 of our party had a fantastic time (5 adults and 4 children) swimming in the pool everyday to escape the Cyprus heat.
The house is on the edge of the village very private and of a very high standard, and what a garden that Bidi and Steve must be proud of. Our only regret is that we only hired this villa for 1 week and what a shame to have to go home so soon.

You will find Bidi and Steve so helpful to make the very best of your holiday. It is best if you hire a car as there are many places to have dinner each night I recommend going to Bellapais abbey, St Herrion castle and walking in the mountains but do get up early to beat the heat of the day.

Summer 2011

  • 5 of 5
We were here last year and loved it so much we returned to spend another month at Habibi House this summer. It felt like ‘coming home’ on our second visit as we knew the village well and could immediately settle into our stay. The garden was looking as glorious as ever, Bidi and Steve (our generous hosts) have added some lovely touches to the house (not least their own artwork which is very beautiful), Sallie (the property manager) was again extremely helpful, and we had a wonderful time in this idyllic, peaceful location. We did some new things this year including a Jeep Safari (very safe driving, a lovely day out) up into the mountain range that you can see from the house (but further West behind Lapta). It was great to be so high up and see such amazing views all along the coast. Sadly, we aren’t planning to be back until 2013 (fingers crossed!) so we won’t be hogging this wonderful house for another month next year - someone else can experience this little pocket of paradise! It is a very special place.
