About Mrs Tina Hunt

Owners Tina and Peter are now persons of leisure, having both recently retired. We live in a tiny cottage in a very rural setting, just outside Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

Mrs Tina Hunt purchased this villa in 2004

Why Mrs Tina Hunt chose Kyrenia Region

11 years ago we went to Kyrenia for a holiday over the Christmas period. We had been to the South and wondered what differences we would find in the mysterious north. What we found was a wonderfully unspoilt country, with the most hospitable, friendly people, and an incredibly low crime rate - most people don't ever lock their car.

Having fallen in love with the place, we went property-hunting - looking at several possible villas. However, the manager of the hotel introduced us to his uncle, who was building a very small number of luxury villas in Bellapais (widely felt to be the 'best' area around Kyrenia). One look at the location, the quality of the build and the associated plot and we were hooked - and Villa Manzara became ours (once built - we saw the villa as a concrete shell!!)

What makes this villa unique

We love the sweeping spiral staircase, with windows at each step looking out to the mountains nearby. We also love to sit on the bedroom balcony with a cuppa, looking out to the Mediterranean. Our other indulgence is to sit out at night, with our feet in the pool, and a bottle of local wine, just enjoying the quiet and the stars.

The enchanting peaceful Villa Manzara

  • 5 of 5

Villa Manzara is the third property we have rented in Northern Cyprus for our annual holiday and it was by far the best.

The owners have put a great deal of thought and effort into making sure that everything you need for a perfect holiday is tucked away somewhere inside.

We found the villa to be spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished throughout.

Tucked away far enough in the foothills of the mountains for seclusion yet only five minutes drive to the nearest supermarket or restaurant.

In the evening when the sun went down we would sit on the balcony in garden where the scent of jasmine is just amazing, and drink an ice cold beer.

I will be recommending Villa Manzara to my family and friends.

Thank you Peter & Tina for a great holiday, we hope to return to lovely Villa Manzara in the near future.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that our guests enjoy 'Villa Manzara' and that many do return on a regular basis. We take our own holidays there at least twice each year and this enables us to keep the standard of the villa to that mentioned by this reviewer and many other guests. This is not just a business for us - we feel personally responsible for the enjoyment of guests who visit 'Manzara' and we always try to provide them with those little homely touches. Our property manager, Gemma, has been praised for her personal involvement with guests who need her services - we are very lucky to have such a caring and professional local representative.

Fabulous villa in wonderful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the Villa exceeded our already high expectations - very large and luxurious. Furnished and equipped to an extremely high standard with lovely touches everywhere - pictures, flowers, ornaments, etc. Everything visitors could possibly need inside and out was provided and then some! Far better than home. Fantastic views from the bedrooms across the gardens and olive trees to the sprkling blue sea beyond. In the other direction the mind blowing backdrop of the mountains. Dazzling colour everywhere from the gorgeous flowering shrubs and trees. Wonderful to sit on one of the many balconies or beside the pool enjoying a meal or just relaxing. Highlights - the impressive ruins of Bellapais Abbey by day and night (illuminated). Girne Castle - fasinating , especially Sunken Ship museum. Fabulous views from the ramparts over Kyrenia Harbour. Cliff formations near Turtle Beach. Unique dining experience at Kyrenia Tavern, tasty meals at Errols, Delta, Tanners and other picturesque restaurants. Freshly baked bread - wonderful from local shops. Fantastic holiday with wonderful memories to look back on. Wished stay was longer to enjoy all the wonderful sights.

Home in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

Villa Manzara was an absolute delight. The villa is equipped to a high standard and had everything we needed. The swimming pool was fabulous. The pool is very private and has shade. We were able to use a different terrace at each part of the day because Manzara has balconies or terraces all around.

The area is very quiet and sitting by the pool of an evening was bliss. Listening to the sounds of a Northern Cyprus evening was perfect. The local shepherd came by with his sheep each evening and would always give us a wave.

The villa comes with everything you could need and more. Perfect for self catering!

Northern Cyprus was a real delight and Villa Manzara made it a superb holiday. I would happliy go back and have passed on the details to several friends.
