Habibi House has beautiful gardens and a lovely pool plus Wi-Fi. 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.
