Overview

About the property

A luxury 4-bedroom secluded villa with private pool, overlooking the blue Med!

Villa Casiobury is a beautiful 4 bedroom villa offering its guests both luxury & privacy and yet is just a few minutes walking distance from the traditional bars and restaurants of the picturesque Turkish Cypriot village of Esentepe. Set in mature gardens, Villa Casiobury is blessed with stunning, uninterrupted panoramic views of the blue Mediterranenean Sea.

REMEMBER: NORTH CYPRUS IS OUTSIDE THE EURO-ZONE; ITS CURRENCY IS TURKISH LIRA SO YOUR MONEY GOES A LOT FURTHER!!!

There are a number of secluded beaches in the area & traditional restaurants located in the village or just a short drive away. Famous for its turtles, Alagadi beach is within a 10 minute drive plus we have the Korineum Golf Resort, a luxury championship-quality golfing complex, with spa & restaurants & now a newly opened beach club & tennis academy, all just 5 minutes away.

NEW IN 2016: 2016 sees the opening of the new Esentepe beach club. Offering everything you should expect ie restaurant and bar, sunbeds and brollies, changing facilities & its very own beach volleyball court. The club is just a 2-minute drive away or, for those feeling energetic, a appx 25-minute stroll down the hillside through the pine trees.

Casiobury - accommodation and facilities

The accommodation comprises a spacious hallway, leading through to a sunken lounge area. The lounge has a traditional log burner and is comfortably furnished with a sofa bed, easy-chairs & coffee table. A flat-screen TV and DVD player is provided, along with a large selection of DVDs. Large double-glazed patio doors afford direct unimpeded views of the Mediterranean from the comfort of your armchair. Off the lounge, through an archway, is the semi-circular dining room. With a large dining table and chairs, this room has two further sets of patio doors leading out onto the garden terrace with truly stunning sea views. Beyond the dining room is a fully-equipped modern kitchen with island.

On the ground floor, on the east-side of the house, are two double bedrooms, each with air-conditioning and built-in wardrobes. One is furnished with a double-bed and the second has twin beds. Both bedrooms have double-glazed patio doors, leading directly to the private pool. Between these two bedrooms is the family bathroom, equipped with shower, WC and hand basin.

A cot and high-chair is available for guests with babies.

Climb the stairs and you will find a third double bedroom. Comfortably furnished and air-conditioned, it has two large picture-windows affording amazing views all the way up the coastline, westwards towards Kyrenia. Guests also enjoy access to their own private terrace from this room.

The master bedroom is situated at the top of the stairs. Air-conditioned for your comfort, it is furnished with a king-size bed, dressing table and built-in wardrobes. Across the landing is a large shower room/wet room with WC, hand basin etc. A second external terrace can be accessed from this floor, overlooking the pool area, facing eastwards with views right up to the Karpaz Peninsula… perfect for catching the early morning & afternoon sun.

To the east-side of the house is the 8m x 4m private pool & barbecue area. Sun-loungers & parasols are provided for our guests' comfort. With the further provision of a number of tables & chairs, family-dining al fresco for up to 8 persons is a pleasure not to be missed.

In addition, free high-speed Wi-Fi internet is available to our guests. For bookings of 14 days or more we provide mid-stay linen changes free of charge if requested. A small complimentary welcome pack is provided to our guests and larger shops are available on request at cost.

Casiobury offers luxury accommodation for both smaller groups, seeking lots of space, or larger parties of up to a maximum of 8 people, & represents the perfect choice for the discerning holidaymaker.

Note: Due to its location on a hillside, there are some steps to the villa entrance. Villa Casiobury is not considered suitable for persons with mobility difficulties.

Note: Villa available to hire from May to October only.

Reasonable use of air-con is included.

About Mike Fields

Lyn and I are originally from south-east London. We both had busy careers, myself as a Financial Analyst in the city and Lyn running her own hairdressing business.

We purchased Villa Casiobury from new in 2004, initially as a holiday home, but in 2010 we decided to take career breaks and move to this beautiful part of the world. We haven't looked back & are thoroughly enjoying our new lives in the sun.

We take care of our guests personally, and, being our home for 6 months of the year, Casiobury is maintained to the highest possible standard.

Mike Fields purchased this villa in 2004

Why Mike Fields chose Kyrenia Region

We chose Villa Casiobury for a number of reasons. Firstly its location. The villa is an elevated, front-line property, blessed with the most amazing, uninterrupted sea views from every room, terrace & pool area. From the Karpaz to the east, Kyrenia to the west & even the Turkish coastline on a clear day. Truly stunning!!

The villa offers seclusion and privacy and yet is within 5 minutes walking distance of the village of Esentepe, with all its bars, restaurants, shops, bank & post office.

What makes this villa unique

North Cyprus is perhaps the last unspoilt region in the Mediterranean & the area in/around Esentepe is especially beautiful.

The quaint little village is perched on a hill-top, overlooking the beautiful blue Mediterranean Sea on one side and the stunning pine-forested Besparmak mountains on the other.

The natural beauty of this area has not been missed by others. With the Korineum Golf Resort just 5 minutes away and the new beach clubs, spas and hotels now appearing, the Esentepe area is clearly THE place to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mike and Lyn

Thank you for the wonderful time we have spent here. The villa is really beautiful and cozy. Long winters nights in Moscow we will remember this place, especially the view.

With all our love

The quaint village of Esentepe is an old Turkish Cypriot village set on the hillside overlooking the blue Mediterannean sea. Cooled in the summer by the on-shore breeze, (Esentepe actually means Windy Hill) visitors to this beautiful region have so much to experience and explore.

Be it exploring the medieval castles perched on craggy tops along the Besparmak mountain range or relaxing on beautiful unspoilt beaches, this spectacular region of North Cyprus has it all. Visit the famous Alagadi turtle beach and release baby turtles back into the sea, or watch the mums come ashore to lay their eggs.

New in 2016: 2016 sees the opening of the new Esentepe beach club. Offering everything you should expect ie restaurant and bar, sunbeds and brollies, changing facilities etc....including a beach volleyball court...the beach club is just a 2-minute drive away or, for those feeling energetic, a appx 25-minute stroll down the hill. A wonderful new facility in the area.

If its golf you're looking for, Korineum Golf and Beach Resort is just 5 minutes away, offering a championship standard 18-hole golf course, golf academy, tennis academy and wellness centre and spa.

Alternatively, take a drive along the spectacular coastline and head up to the famous Karpaz Peninsular (Pan Handle) to visit the donkey sanctuary, St Andrews monastery and famous Golden Beach...miles of perfect white sand and azure blue water.

In the evenings why not enjoy a traditional Turkish meze meal along with fish or meat in one of the many wonderful local restaurants in/around Esentepe...all for a fraction of the cost you might expect. Remember, North Cyprus is outside of the Eurozone and your money goes so much further here.

Cycling and hiking in the pine forests which adorn the mountain range in this area is very popular, the cooler air offering a welcome respite in the long hot summers. Temperatures here average 38 degrees during July and August.

If you fancy a flutter, why not visit one of the many casinos in Kyrenia (Girne) all enjoy a cool drink in the world famous Old Harbour of Kyrenia and simply watch the world go by.

Alagadi beach also offers scuba diving facilities and sailboarding, or for the really adventurous why not try a tandem paraglide and soar with the eagles 5000 feet above Kyrenia!

But, if that's all just too much, why not just relax around your own private pool and watch the sun go down form one of the many terraces at Villa Casiobury.

Whatever you choose to do, Esentepe provides the perfect base from which to explore this little corner of heaven...the Gem of the Mediterranean!

A lovely villa with great accommodation for a family and fabulous views.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Villa Casiobury for ourselves and our two daughters , one with her husband and 11 month old baby. The villa was spacious and offered perfect accommodation for our group. We arrived late at night but had been given very good directions and easily gained access as instructed. The house was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We found everything we needed and were provided with a cot and high chair . We were very comfortable and had a wonderful holiday

Everything we hoped it would be and more

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mike and Lyn for a wonderful stay at your beautiful villa. We stayed there for a week with three grown up children and really enjoyed our holiday. The photos do not give the villa justice - it was spotlessly clean with a lovely pool and beautiful views, and you had thought of everything right down to a welcome pack when we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble whilst we were there, from organising transfers and a hire car, recommending places to eat, to arranging for us to go to the turtle sanctuary and release baby turtles in to the sea at midnight! An amazing experience none of us will forget. We would definitely recommend this to friends. Thanks again, from the Charltons

Amazing villa with great views

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the villa with my wife and two adult children. What we were hoping for is what we precisely got at Villa Casiobury; tranquility, privacy and sea views. Mike organised our transfer from and to Larnaca airport and a hire car delivered at the villa. We met Mike and Lynn the following morning and they briefed us on the places to visit. The drive to golden sands beach in Karpaz via a detour through Famagusta was a pleasant one with very little traffic. There are many places to visit in Kyrenia like the St. Hilarion castle and the Kyrenia harbour, all within a convenient distance from Esentepe. There are local sandy beaches near Esentepe and you may spot turtles swimming not far from you. There was an apricot festival with music and Turkish food in the village during our stay in Esentepe. All in all we had a great time and we hope to return there soon. Mike and Lynn are great hosts and the villa will not disappoint anyone.
