Large 3 bedroom villa with en suite to main bedroom. Communal bathroom upstairs and extra bathroom downstairs. Large Kitchen dining room with separate living room. Balcony from master bedroom overlooking the pool. Balcony on upper floor with access from landing and bedroom 2. All bedrooms have air conditioning units. The kitchen has a dishwasher, oven/hob, fridge freezer. The utility room has a washing machine. This villa has all the ingredients required for a wonderful summer break. Private 10m x 5m pool. The new Korineum golf and country club newly opened is just 15 mins drive, with it's 18 hole championship course, spectacular club house and academy, boasting driving range practice chipping/putting area, and a 3 hole practice area comprising par3/4/5. The harbour town of Kyrenia is only 5 mins drive with it's abundance of restaurants and bars all set in this wonderful romantic surrounding. There are many beaches to choose from the nearest being 5 mins away.
Airports: Although Ercan airport in the north appears the most obvious choice, possibly the best route is to fly into Larnaca in the south, this is due to there being many more airlines flying there so more price competition. The transfer time from Larnaca is approx 1hr 10mins, and from Ercan 40 mins. Flights into Ercan may be directed via Turkey, another good reason to fly direct to Larnaca.
Local info: North Cyprus is the Turkish area of Cyprus. The currency here is Turkish Lira although they will accept Sterling everywhere. They drive on the left as we do and the majority of bars restaurants shops will speak English. This part of the world is unspoilt as yet and is an ideal holiday destination for families and couples. The wonderful Bellapais Abbey sits in the mountainside overlooking the resort, there are a few restaurants here which afford a stunning view down to the ocean below.
If you need a night out without the kids we can provide a babysitting service. We have English friends who live opposite our villa, they have 2 kids and regularly babysit kids in the area. I can provide the ladies contact phone number if required. The rate is £5 per hour.
Transfers & Car hire: The transfer time from Larnaca in the south is approx 1hr 10mins, from Ercan in the north approx 40mins. We can arrange transfers for you from either airport. If flying to Larnaca you have to cross the border so you will need to have transfers arranged, this is not a problem, we can have someone waiting for you on arrival. Approximate costs for transfers are £90 return from Larnaca, free from Ercan if renting a car, otherwise £40 return.
Car hire rates are very reasonable, we can arrange this for you and have a car waiting for you on arrival at the villa, approximate car hire rate £20 per day.
The villa was really good - very spacious, and well equipped so that we found everything we could possibly need for the month. Having Wi-Fi was a bonus which meant that we could keep in touch with home and our business interests. Lovely location just outside Ozankoy which is a village we have come to enjoy, and near to Girne and Bellapais for visits. We used the pool throughout most of October which is kept up to a high standard. The villa is part of a pleasant small development and has views of the mountains in the distance, with an olive grove at the back of the property. we hope to go back again.
This villa has all you need for a perfect holiday. It is a super base to travel round Northern Cyprus with both day trips and local destinations.
Transport: The owner arranged for Airport Transfer and also a Hire Car for us. The Service they provided was very Good and the price very reasonable.
Eating out: Rafters Restaurant is within easy walking distance and provide super Indian and British Cuisine, whilst a little further afield you can find Kyrena with many local eateries and Peanuts is well worth a visit. Bellapais not only has a lovely Abbey and several very good restaurants and the Abbey Tower is recommended
All in all we had a superb holiday and the weather was hot every day - no rain allowed in Cyprus it would appear. We can recommend this villa to anyone without the slightest hesitation
This is a lovely villa. It is clean and well maintained. The pool is big, shallow and set in pleasant gardens. The area is very quiet and residential, but it is minutes by car/taxi to the bustling harbour of Kyrenia. There are restaurants within walking distance - Rafters 5 mins away served excellent food and The Courtyard Inn, 10 mins walking, was nice too. It was interesting to explore the village of Ozankoy,and further afield was beautiful Bellapais and Karpaz peninsular.The villa is a spacious and comfortable base for a relaxing holiday.
A lovely property in an ideal location. Good sized bedrooms, fantastic space downstairs including a well thought out open plan kitchen. All the facilities you will need for your holiday, including cooker, washing machine, spacious fridge and water cooler. Very clean throughout, the pool was well maintained.
Excellent liaison with the property owner who also put us in touch with a very efficient local team that managed our transfers to and from the airport and our car hire.
Nice and quiet when relaxing by the pool, the property is also well located for markets and supermarkets a couple of minutes drive away. A five minute drive to the picture post card Kyrenia harbour and its many restaurants. Or eight minutes up into the mountains to beautiful Bellapais Abbey. Eighteen minutes drive to the Korineum golf course.
If you want something local then the excellent Rafters Restaurant and Bar is a 5 minute walk away. Good food, warm welcome and often with entertainment in the evenings.
Highly recommended for your stay in Northern Cyprus.
What to say;- many thanks for the very good support in all matters from owner and his stuff.
The villa is very well equipted with all you need and everything is clean and in good conditions. Around the villa you find a nice area for walking and you have several options to organize your days. Restraunt around the corner (the Rafters) with good food, live music and very kindful service.
The harbour of Girne is really nice and we loved to sit there and to enjoy the time.
For the beach we like to recommend turtle beach appr. 10 km east or the beach from acapulco Hotel Beach resort.
At least don´t forget to have a look on the Karpaz headland and enjoy time in less tourism beaches.
We will come back and may be we will buy there our next villa.
Thanks for the time.
This is third time we have stayed at the villa, but the first time when it was hot (+30c), previously having stayed in May and November. Although the humidity increased over the week, we (2 couples) found it tolerable by using the well maintained pool at the villa. The villa continued to impress us, especially our friends at the size and spaciousmess, as it was their first time. It is important to use the water dispenser and keep a spare refill bottle handy, plus the fact that the refill is amazingly cheap. We found we needed to use the aircon. at night for a short while (it is very efficient) before went went to bed. There were plenty of towels, although we only needed to use one set, as they dried so quickly! There are plenty of places to eat, and the harbour is always popular, although we were surprised how busy it was not. We found two new eating places we would strongly recommend - The Old Mill in Bellapaise, which had only been open 3 weeks. The other is 'Peanuts' which is on the coast near the new amphitheatre, and although the name sounds naff, it certainly is not!! It is one of the few restaurants that is on the waters edge and provides unrivaled sea views at the same time.
Golf: The new Korineum golf & country club is now open, only 15 minutes drive from the villa. The journey takes you along the coast on a leisurely drive without traffic, just the views to admire. The impressive arched entrance leads up into the academy and clubhouse entrance. The course is only a a couple of years old but has settled down well, and provides a wonderful test of your skills. The best time of year to play here is from late September through to May as the temperature through June-August is a little hot for golf, unless using buggies and well equipped with refreshment.
After your round the clubhouse beckons with it's wonderful balconies overlooking the ocean, and far reaching views of the mountains, and of course a refreshing beer!
