FABULOUS VILLA WITH GARDENS & PRIVATE POOL IN THE TURKISH QUARTER OF KYRENIA!

Kyrenia Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, sleeps maximum 8, 2 en-suites, family bathroom

Stroll down the narrow winding streets of the Turkish quarter of Kyrenia/ Girne and find amongst the old houses and shops an imposing villa, set within a walled landscaped garden with a private pool (10m x 5m) that is drenched in sun all day. The villa, recently renovated, is extremely spacious and has high ceilings. The old thick walls can still be seen in the well-equipped kitchen and front reception room; one of two comfortable reception rooms which, with the kitchen, open onto the terrace that surrounds the villa. The en-suite bedrooms lead onto a balcony with views of the Beshparmak mountains. The gardens and terraces provide plenty of space for outdoor living and children to play. The butcher and grocer are less than a minute down the road, as is the baker, where freshly baked bread can be bought for breakfast. The busy shopping area, cafes and charming harbour with its historic castle are only a leisurely 10 minute walk away.

The swimming pool: The pool is fitted with the latest salt chlorinator system, a natural way to keep the swimming pool clean with superior water quality. The lower level of chlorine and natural salt in the pool system eliminates sore and burning red eyes, green hair, skin irritation and overpowering chlorine odours. Swimmers feel refreshed and skin retains its soft texture. Bathers enjoy their swimming experience so much more in crystal clear water and don't feel as if they have just taken a bath in chemical soup!

Flight information and transfers: Flights coming into Ercan and Larnaca can be met and guests driven to the villa, please enquire when booking. Car hire can also be arranged. Cars hired in the North of Cyprus usually have free pick up and drop off at Ercan airport, reduced rates from Larnaca.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 16, 2010
  • Stayed: Apr 2010
We stayed at the villa for two weeks and could happily have stayed a lot longer. It had everything we needed and more. Mel met us when we arrived and she got in some essential supplies so we didn't need to stock up at the supermarket straight away. Unfortunately Charlie was unwell so we never got a chance to meet him. Mel was extremely helpful and answered all our questions during our stay. The information left by previous guests was really helpful too and a great idea for future visitors.
The weather was great, with the exception of one day when it rained, so we spent most of the time lazing round the pool - well as much as you can with a 10 month old baby! We certainly enjoyed excellent food, both at the harbour and by making good use of the villa's barbecue. We bought meat and vegetables at the local butchers and green grocers, and the nearby bakery did the most wonderful olive bread.
Thanks Mary for ensuring everything went perfectly from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. We would definitely use the villa again and are looking at next year's dates already!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kate and Paul for your fab review, it's great to hear that all went well and that you enjoyed your stay at the villa. I'm pleased that you sampled our local shops-the butchers is one of the best on the island, if not the best, our local bakery bakes the most tasty breads, Mel and Charlie are both stars, I can't praise them enough! We look forward to welcoming you soon.
Best wishes,
Mary.

TRUELY AMAZING VILLA !!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Stayed for 1 week in a group of 6 adults and were gobsmacked at the amount of space there was both inside and out ! The rooms are spacious and has one of the largest kitchens we have seen in a villa and the fridge with water/ice dispenser were a god-send !, The swimming pool was amazing and the water crystal clear and never too cold due to the hot day long sun !! The garden is very pretty with orange,lemon ,lime,and pomegranate trees and numerous plants and shrubs and in the evenings the garden is full of wonderful aromas which make it perfect for alfresco dining or a glass of wine or three !!! There are a couple of stores close by including a bakery (yummy fruit bread ) which is very convenient should you run out of milk etc although a 10-15 minute walk takes you to the Lemar supermarket which stocks everything you will ever need through your stay ,and where you will find the most delicious jam doughnuts we have ever had even at home !!! The harbour is only a short distance for various restaurants and bars but on the way you must venture to The Colony hotel roof-top terrace for an early evening cocktail in their "Happy Hour 4pm-7pm" although I will pre-warn you they are very potent and wont need to many should you wish to see the evening out !! We had the most excellent break and Thankyou Mary for letting us share a little piece of paradise and hope to return again one day !!
The Lappers,Sanders and Mitchells !!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments, sounds like you had a great holiday! I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at the villa and were happy with the pool and gardens. The villa is ideally placed for all amenities and local attractions, as you found a car is not necessary. Suzy and I hope we can welcome you all back sometime soon.
Best wishes,
Mary.

Fantastic relaxing break!

  • Submitted: Apr 24, 2013

Wow! I have stayed in some villas over the years but this one must be one of the best. The villa itself is very spacious and fully fitted with all that you could want. We went with family and friends for my husband's 40th, the grounds and pool are superb with some great areas for al fresco dining. The TV lounge was good as we took our Wii - great for a bit of family entertainment. The location to town is only a short distance (although walking in mid August is tough in the heat of the day!) Kyrenia itself is a charming town and the Dolmus service is fun to explore other neighbouring towns and villages.
The service provided by Charlie & Mel was great, there was a small problem with the pool during our stay but this was sorted very quickly with the help of Mary and didn't disrupt our plans.
The transfer service from Larnaca was very reasonable and reliable again all arranged beforehand with Mary.
We were looking for a relaxing holiday in great accommodation and this villa lived up to every expectation.
Thank you Mary,
Owner's Response: Hello Jo!
Thanks for the review and the amazing comments. Absolutely delighted you enjoyed your stay at the villa and were happy with the gardens and pool. The villa is in an ideal location for exploring Kyrenia and beyond, the Dolmus service is a fantastic way to do it.
With best wishes,
Mary.

Fantastic Villa in Turkish Quarter Kyrenia

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 16, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
We stayed in the villa for 1 week in June 2012. 4 adults in 2 spacious bedrooms both en-suite.Fantastic weather, and we were thankful for the air con throughout the villa. The villa would be excellent for families as there are an additional 2 bedrooms that share an extremely large family bathroom. There are 2 sitting rooms downstairs, perfect for an afternoon snooze (or so my father advised) and a large pool & garden area with plenty of seating and pool beds. The whole villa is enclosed so families feel extremely secure. We didn't hire a car as we prefer to walk. There is a butchers, local bakery & local shop within 2 minutes walk. Another shop opens all hours within 5 mins walk and a supermarket, Ice cream parlour, Chinese takeaway, Burger King equivalent approx 10 mins walk. On an evening there were great restaurants (Ikimiz, No 14, Efendi) within 1-2 mins walk. All recommended by us. Kyrenia Harbour is a lovely stroll (approx 5-10 mins) where there are numerous restaurants and bars. The best place we found for daytime snacks and the best evening meal was the 'Chimera Restaurant (Castle end of the harbour). All were excellent value for money with fresh fish, meat & great views. We will be booking the same villa in the near future. We recommend the Wednesday Market, St Hilarions castle (Get a taxi to take you there and back), & Bellapais Abbey. We didn't eat out in Bellapais in the evening,however if you fancy it most restaurants there will pick you up and return you home for free! The owner of the villa arranged our transfer from Larnaca and provisions for our arrival. My only disappointment was that we should have booked another week......
Owner's Response: Thank you for your brilliant review. Absolutely delighted you all had a wonderful holiday. The villa is ideally placed in the town, great local shops and restaurants. We really look forward to welcoming you again sometime soon!
Best wishes,
Mary.

We stayed in this villa for two weeks during a very hot August. The villa is spacious and well laid out. The bedrooms were large, each with air conditioning. The balcony had a table and chairs, lovely for viewing the mountains or looking over the pool. The pool was simply amazing, so clean and crystal clear. The whole family enjoyed not having stinging eyes! The garden was pretty and well kept.
Mel was there to meet us, having got supplies ready for us. Mel took us to the local supermarket a couple of times, which was helpful and much appreciated. The traditional local bakery was amazing and sold lovely cheese bread every morning. The new bakery opposite the front gate was not open.
The harbour is very picturesque although expensive for eating. Lots of local restaurants provided quality food such as 'The House' (good for Sunday lunch), 'Peanuts'. Local taxi drivers were friendly as well as local residents. Kyrenia is full of historic buildings and the castle on top of the mountain is worth a visit.
Mary the owner was really helpful and answered our questions before we booked.
My youngest son enjoyed feeding the cats every morning.

Lovely holiday, thank you
