15 Breezy Hill Villas is one of two villas (Number 5 also) that we have on a small up and coming site in a beautiful hilltop position, affording extensive views of the coast, Mediterranean and Mountain backdrop in the quaint village of Esentepe. The two villas are facing each other at opposite ends of the site's shared pool. The property benefits from only a three minute walk into the village itself. This means a car is not essential as the village has a number of Restaurants eg The Tumba, Remzi’s, Zirdelli’s, 3 minimarkets, butchers, bank, post office etc and there is a bus stop in the village giving access to the lovely harbour town of Kyrenia (approx. 25minutes away by car)and beyond. There are also a number of restaurants located at the bottom of the hill which offer a pickup and dropoff service and the food is fabulous to boot!
However, having a car would definitely enable easier access to all the delights Northern Cyprus has to offer – Kyrenia and Bellapais, Famagusta, the Roman ruins of Salamis, fabulous beaches including Turtle Beach and the wonderful golden sands on the Karpaz to name but a few….and for those who enjoy a round of Golf, the fabulous Korineum Golf Club, an 18 hole championship course, which also has a wonderful restaurant and Beach Resort is only a 10 minute drive away.
There is also a new Tempo Supermarket about 5 minute drive from the villa which is very well stocked.
The Villa itself:-
A contemporary 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Detached villa on two floors :–
Master Bedroom upstairs with wardrobes , ensuite Bathroom with a shower over the bath. Access via patio doors onto the large upstairs terrace, benefitting from fabulous views of the sea and pool area. There is also separate access via the landing to the outside terrace.
Downstairs is a light and airy open plan kitchen/dining/living room with 3m height Patio doors giving access to the downstairs terrace which is hedged to provide some privacy.
There is another double bedroom with wardrobes (both bedrooms have hairdryers)and a separate bathroom with shower cubicle.
The villa is furnished and equipped to an excellent standard. The kitchen is fully equipped with large fridge/freezer, gas hob/electric oven, washing machine, dishwasher, kettle/toaster, extensive range of glassware, crockery and utensils etc for all your culinary needs. There is an iron/ironing board and airer. Bed linen/Towels/Beach Towels/Tea Towels are provided. The lounge area and both bedrooms have air conditioning.

The villa has access to the site's lovely 16 x 4 metre oblong pool with 2 shallow pools suitable for young children. The main pool area is one depth and is accessed via wide steps which can also be used to sit on. It makes for a great daily swim!!
Esentepe is a fantastic base from which to explore all that Northern Cyprus has to offer, or due to the fabulous climate..... just kick back, take time out to relax and enjoy yourself in a most charming and tranquil setting!
We had 11 very comfortable nights at Breezy Hill and can highly recommend the house, the location and the local village of Esentepe. Given the chance we will be back.
Breezy Hill villas is set a stone's throw away from the village set up high on the hill, this gives you an authentic feeling of being in North Cyprus. The accommodation was as described and is big enough for 4 adults. The layout was excellent and everything was well equipped and in working order. After a few glitches, we were able to relax and enjoy our surroundings, great views, excellent pool, friendly locals, all that added to our enjoyment. As mentioned above we had a couple of issues, but Paul and Karen expedited a quick resolution and were always at the end of a phone/text/email to get things sorted to our satisfaction. I should also mention David & Helen (owners of No.2) who were onsite enjoying their own break, who also assisted us immensely, thank you all so much.
As the shops were such a short drive away and the kitchen was so well equipped, we ate in mostly, enjoying the views from the sun terrace with a gin & tonic in hand! However, from other reports, food was readily available and up to standard locally. We travelled to Kyrenia and also to the Beach/Golf/Tennis resort "Korineum", were we enjoyed a pleasant day on the sandy/shingly beach, don't worry there is a platform with steps for those not keen on shingle, the water was warm and clear and excellent for snorkelling.
Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others, especially for those wishing to get away from the clubbers nightlife and want a more authentic experience with the choice of what you want to do.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans la maison de Paul et Karen.
Ce sont des propriétaires charmants et très arrangeants.
La maison a tout le confort et la piscine est superbe.
Esentepe est un charmant petit village dans les montagnes, calme et vue magnifique.
N'oubliez pas de passer au Tumba restaurant, très bon accueil et cuisine traditionnelle.
Nous le conseillons vivement.
