North Cyprus, near Kyrenia. This Stunning Stone Villa offers a blend of contemporary living and character features. Spacious living area includes a large open plan fully equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher, substantial lounge with cathedral beamed ceiling, inside dining area, stone walls and an open fireplace. There are 3 comfortable bedrooms. Walk up the curved marble staircase to the sunny en-suite master bed, overlooking the pool, with a pitched beamed ceiling & double doors leading to the large balcony/terrace with sea & spectacular mountain views.

Outside the extensive terrace offers a 10x5 private pool with roman end steps, sun beds, beautiful shaded outside room, seating and BBQ-perfect for al fresco dining on hot Cyprus days or warm Cyprus evenings.

How to get there: Flights to Cyprus are available from various UK airports including Heathrow, Gatwick, Stanstead, Manchester, Belfast & Glasgow. There are two ways to fly. You can fly to the North Cyprus airport called Ercan. This takes you via Turkey where you land for 45 minutes. The journey from Ercan airport is about 45 minutes. Alternatively, you can fly direct into Larnaca in the South and we can arrange a taxi transfer direct to the villa. Car hire is recommended and a vehicle can be delivered to the villa or picked up at Ercan airport. Rates are very reasonable and competitive. We are happy to advise you on flights and car hire.

Our managing agent will come to the villa and answer any queries you may have.

The 3 bedroom North Cyprus, Kyrenia region Villa is just 20 minutes drive west from Kyrenia in the delightful village of Karsiyaka. We chose this stunning location for its rural setting surrounded by a variety of olive and fruit trees yet close to the sea with amazing views of the mountain range. Walk to the local traditional shops, where the locals drink their Turkish coffee or buy your groceries in the many supermarkets or open air markets with their mountains of fresh fruit and vegetables. A short drive to an extensive choice of superb restaurants. North Cyprus is very friendly and safe. Cars drive on the same side as England. English is widely spoken. Sterling can be used in shops and restaurants. This is a foreign holiday with all the benefits.

This unspoiled region has a wonderful climate. April and May are simply beautiful with the flowers bursting into life. Hot summers and warm evenings, where the warmth continues right through to November. Even the winter months are fairly mild. Why not try a winter break with over 300 days of sunshine a year. If there’s one thing this island benefits from it’s an abundance of beautiful beaches.From rocky little coves to long stretches of soft clean sand, from deserted wild beaches to miles of perfect coastline - the beaches of Northern Cyprus offer everything

The Villa has air con and fans in all bedrooms and fly screens throughout for your convenience. Linen and bath towels are provided with a full change for your second week. Master bed also has a ceiling fan and safe. The large built in range of wardrobes have plenty of hangers.

About Tessa Thompson

I've always had a passion for property, renovation and interior design and have rented out property at home and abroad for the last 30 years. We've owned property in France, Spain and North Cyprus.

I've been married to David for 38 years and we have 2 son's, Sam and Josh. A lovely daughter in law, Corrina, and a beautiful Granddaughter called Meadow. They all adore the Villa and come out as often as they can.

Tessa Thompson purchased this villa in 2003

Why Tessa Thompson chose Karşıyaka

We holidayed in North Cyprus for the first time in 2003 with the idea of buying a property. At this time there was a lot of new builds being built and we were disappointed with the bland houses on estates we were being shown. We almost left empty handed but suddenly came across a newly built stone villa. We fell in love with the old character immediately. We were then shown a stunning piece of land where potatoes had been grown, nestled amongst a backdrop of pine trees, stunning mountain views and close to the sea. It was perfect. Five stone villas were due to be built off plan. We chose our plot immediately and have loved the villa ever since.

What makes this villa unique

North Cyrus really does offer it all. Everyone is so friendly, the food, restaurants and wine are superb, including the service. It's such great value. The sun shines so many days of the year and of cause we have a stunning villa, garden and pool. All the family will love it.

For us the Villa is in the perfect spot. Peaceful enough to have a restful and relaxing holiday yet only a short distance to everything you could possibly want in a holiday.

Amazing 4 week Holiday, Villa and Pool very clean and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect holiday for relaxing around the pool which is maintained regularly and was spotless.

Pool is feed from freshwater well at front of property via a pump so stays full of clean, cool fresh water throughout the very hot summer months.

Villa very clean and well equipped with everything you need for a great holiday.

The local restaurants we went to recommended by Tessa were all good , the only one I would add to the list which was a favourite of ours is Frankie s American diner, which does a very authentic Kentucky fried chicken.

This is the perfect holiday if you want to go out and about to the places of interest or just have some peace and quiet to relax. We hopefully will be back again soon.

Thanks Tessa.

Utterly charming!

  • 5 of 5

Tessa's home is faultless. There are stunning little touches that instantly make the villa feel like a home to anyone who visits. We stayed for a week and it just wasn't long enough. There are amenities near by or the main town a short drive away. Tessa was helpful every step of the way, with tons of information on hand, a wonderful host in a remarkable place! Thank you for letting us stay there!

Fantastic property - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything it was supposed to be and a lot more besides. Was clean and well maintained. Pool was really well maintained and always crystal clear. Gardens had regular maintenance. Had so many seating options inside and out. Appreciated all those little extras like washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, cleaning cloths etc. Would recommend a car as stated and then there's loads of restaurants all within 15-20 minute drive. The Owner was brilliant and really got the impression she wanted us to enjoy the Villa as much as she does. Definitely recommend and would certainly go back. 5 Stars !

We have been to Villas before but nothing compares to this, it was absolutely fabulous, everthing you needed in a holiday rental and lots more.Fabulous views from the pool area, very clean and the garden room was fantastic. Couldn't fault anything, and would certainly recommend this property to anyone. The only downside was we had to leave.!!

Absolutely stunning place. The villa is outstanding. Clean , Spacious and well appointed. The pool area is massive with shaded areas at all times during the day. Extremely peaceful and relaxing. A car is a must however for getting about although you may never want to leave and we found ourselves having chilled out BBQs under the stars many nights.

What a fabulous holiday home! Spacious, beautifully maintained with great attention to detail & everything a family could possibly need. The pool is superb with amazing mountain views & we enjoyed many lazy days soaking up the relaxing atmosphere. The booking was very easy & Tessa,(the owner) was incredibly helpful in regards to airport transfers & car hire. What could have been a hassle ran like clockwork. This area of Cyprus was new to us, not as developed as the South of the island but this is a bonus! We enjoyed days out, Kyrenia is a must visit town with its dramatic castle, marina, shops & many eateries. Bellapais abbey is also worth the short drive up into the mountains. We ate out every day, either lunch or in the evening. The coastal road to Kyrenia has numerous restaurants, we particularly liked Kalamari & Blue Song. I can certainly recommend this holiday home, with wifi, satellite to & the beautiful pool, every member of the family was happy!

Car: necessary

The 3 bed roomed Villa is located on the outskirts of Karsiyaka village overlooking the stunning mountain range in a relaxed, peaceful rural setting. Perfect for exploring the unspoilt area or sampling the extensive range of quality restaurants a short drive away. North Cyprus is steeped in history with plenty to see from monasteries, churches to castles. The harbour town of Kyrenia, 20 mins drive, is absolutely magnificent. The crescent shaped harbour has the most amazing atmosphere. A perfect place to dine day or night. Sit back with a drink and watch the boats or take a trip on an extensive choice of large wooden boats. Be spoilt for the day with plenty to eat and drink while you gently cruise along the beautiful coastline. Moor up in one of the many bays and take a swim in the warm crystal clear waters. For the more energetic there are all types of water sports including deep sea diving, Jet Ski, banana boats, canoeing and pedal boating or the newly built Aqua Park.
