Esentepe Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom Apartment, 2 Bathrooms, pool, near the sea, local village, great views

A really well appointed apartment that, without exception, has pleased our guests (see genuine reviews). Furniture, linen and equipment have been well cared for by our magnificent renters. We are proud to offer the apartment again as it still meets our high standards.

The apartment is in an elevated position on a gently sloping site. Inside the apartment is light and spacious. The Lounge/Dining Area looks out onto a very spacious Balcony with delightful sea and mountain views. Our own Roof Sun Terrace is accessed by our Private Staircase. It is lit for evening dining (lights are controlled by our apartment). Unrestricted views and built in BBQ make this an ideal area to while away the warm lazy days. Our Balcony is part shaded to give sun or shade as required.

The Master Bedroom is En Suite; there is a twin Bedroom, a separate family bathroom with bath and shower, and a fully fitted kitchen to complete the comfort.

A comprehensive Information Pack (area, apartment details, site description, restaurants, places to visit, etc) is sent to guests in good time before the visit. There is also in the apartment another information file which repeats much of the information and also gives detailed operation instructions on all appliances.

Our many past guests have without exception kindly given us excellent reviews. To them we say a big 'Thank you' for giving us 'Perfect' reviews. It is always so rewarding to receive good reviews that show that our preparations are appreiated.

We are dedicated to make sure that our services exceed guests expectations every step of the way. Once you book with us, we can arrange all those little extras for you, to ensure a complete peace of mind.

For example, to help you to unwind when you first arrive, a Welcome Pack is provided which includes Tea, Coffee, Bread, Spread.

Cyprus is really a paradise for all sorts of natural and water sports. Our luxury apartment is only a short drive away from a championship standard golf courses which is open all year around. A lively atmosphere can be found without it being 'in your face' all the time. It therefore suits all ages, topped off with a genuine Turkish Cypriot welcome.

We offer value second-to-none packages for four people where you stay in a top notch environment. We believe that we are by far the most economical way to have your holiday and that it cannot be matched by any hotel.

So come and experience the sunshine, and immerse yourself in the unspoiled beauty that is Northern Cyprus

Now some more about the apartment and the location.

Why did we choose this apartment, and why in this area? We bought the apartment because we could see that it was going to be a fantastic development - and we were right! We have made many improvements and have fully equipped it with satellite TV, DVD player, CD player and radio, coffee filter, etc.

There is also a water cooler which is a boon for the Summer. The apartment is air conditioned in the main bedroom and in the lounge/dining room. The second bedroom has a ceiling fan because guests have told us that they like the option of cooling air movement for themselves and for their children. There is a wall safe in the apartment to give guests that extra feeling of comfort (even though Northern Cyprus is a low crime location). There is a baby's high chair in the apartment, and additional baby equipment (cot (including linen), buggy, etc, can be hired on request at time of booking).

Throughout the apartment tasteful quality pictures complete the brightness of the decor .

The site itself is totally secure and beautifully kept by the management company, and the feeling of community between the few that live on the site and holidaymakers is wonderful. It is a really good mix of the local people who live close to the site, and in Esentepe Village. The site is a profusion of gardens. It has a full size swimming pool, and a childrens pool. Both are illuminated and they make a lovely sight at night looking down from our balcony or roof terrace. Covered areas around the pools and copious numbers of sun loungers and tables make this an ideal spot to relax, and to feel safe that children can be kept in the shade under the generously sized shades (6m x 3m).

The site gymnasium is fully equipped with running machines, weights, table tennis table, etc. The gymnasium is where the book and DVD library is situated. There is even a set of golf clubs for free hire (if available).

For our valued guests in the event of emergencies our agent is at the end of a telephone to give that added assurance of a relaxing holiday.

Esentepe village is only a short walk (of about 30 minutes) along a gently sloping road. We have safely and comfortably walked to and from the village at all times after a pleasant meal in one of the local restaurants there. At night the natural star light is a wonderful backdrop to a delightful walk. The village is also served by timetabled Buses that will transport you to many places. In summary, the Esentepe area has all the rugged beauty of an unspoilt area and yet still has all amenities close by. Local supermarkets in Esentepe serve all day to day necessities at reasonable prices.

Visits and Special Interest Holidays: Activities available in North Cyprus are fishing, Golf, scuba diving, paragliding,

mountain climbing, water parks, horse riding, boat tours, walking, bird watching and guided nature walks. The list goes on. Walking in the mountains is breath taking. There are beaches nearby where the Turtles come up to lay their eggs in the sand. (May to July). The eggs hatch out between July to Sept. Ornithologists 'flock' to the Karpaz ('the Pan Handle') to witness the many bird migrations that occur, either as a stopping off point en route to Africa, or as their Winter 'second home'.

There is a Cyprus guide book in our apartment, and many recommendations are contained in the comprehensive Guest Information Manual that we have prepared over many years. Visits to historical castles such as St Hilarion, Buffavento and Kantara together with the Bellapais Abbey, and the Shipwreck Museum in Kyrenia Harbour make for interesting days out. Famagusta and Salamis are also a must for visiting, in particular for the walled city (Famagusta) and the ancient ruins (Salamis).

Getting here: Ercan is our nearest airport in Northern Cyprus (30 mins drive). You can also fly to Larnaca in the south (about 1.5 hours drive). We can help with planning Car Hire or Airport Pick Ups on request. Our recommended car hire company (we have been using them for 5 years), and give excellent car hire rates. They also give heavily discounted taxi rates for collection from and return to Larnaca Airport for their car hire renters.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

About Mr N. Hall

We are an active retired couple who have come to love Northern Cyprus for its peace, and the opportunity for some great walks. We come to the apartment several times per year to ensure that our standards are maintained, although our agent Paul, and his wife have not disappointed us in all the years that they have looked after our second home.

Mr N. Hall purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Mr N. Hall chose Kyrenia Region

Guests have said both to us and in their Reviews that this is the best positioned apartment on the site. 270 degree views of sea and mountains are truly awe inspiring - especially from the private roof terrace at sunset.

The site consists of only two floor blocks, which adds to its homely ambience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the apartment, beautiful accommodation it followed our stay at Crystal Marina which we thought would be hard to beat, but it was all the little touches and extras that made it perfect. The only downside of our stay was the weather , the electrical storms and hail caused quite a lot of power cuts.

Anyway all in all had a great time and left your apartment as it was when we arrived, we also minimised our use of towels etc and completed the small extra list you had left including last but not least turning the water off.

Thank you once again will do a comment on Owners Direct and hopefully go back again later in the year.

The apartment was very well maintained with everything you would need for a holiday break. We especially enjoyed watching the sun set from the roof terrrace. Huge pool and grounds were lovely - clean and well kept. Would recommend to anyone looking to visit North Cyprus.

Beautiful in very way

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in may apartments around the world and this is one of the best. Beautifully appointed with everything you need. The chilled water dispenser was an added bonus in the height of summer. I did not fully appreciate the stunning views from the apartment until we got there. There is one large sea facing balcony and an absolutely enormous roof top balcony which is brilliant to have a barbecue on. The complex is quiet and felt totally safe with the infinity pool a wonder to behold. The apartment is a 20 minute walk from the bars in the local village which are very friendly but if staying here a car is a must to get around. Norman can help you with that with a hire car delivered and picked up from the apartment as well as airport transfers. Kyrenia is about a 20 minute drive and the rest of Northern Cyprus accessible for day trips. I will certainly use this apartment again as and when I return to Northern Cyprus.

happy holiday in North Cyprus

  • 5 of 5

We were happily surprised by the beauty and comfort of the house of Esentepe. Seaterra is a fantastic residence and the apartment of Norman has everything you could want. We regret only for not having enjoyed more days. The location is convenient to the cities, the beaches and the most interesting areas of northern Cyprus, but also to relax (the pool is magnificent, at all hours). We really hope to be back there again.
