The villa is set in a third of an acre and is very bright and airy. It has an open plan downstairs which includes a large lounge and an archway through to a very large kitchen diner. It has three very large bedrooms upstairs all with their own terraces with stunning views of the sea, mountains, or both. There are a further three terraces downstairs which include a large pool terrace area with an 5m x 10m overflow pool. The gardens are young but include palm trees, olive trees, fruit trees, bougainvillea and lots of Jasmin which smells wonderful at sunset.

About Vedia Johnson
Vedia is a Turkish Cypriot who lives in the UK and has a huge family on the island. Vedia and David started coming on holiday to the TRNC every year in about 1997 and have loved it more and more ever since. They finally decided to buy a plot of land in 2003 and had the villa built shortly afterwards. They actually stayed in the villa for the first time in the summer of 2004 and now it is a home from home where friends and family come to enjoy the total relaxation of this wonderful villa which is set on it's own in a large plot.
Vedia Johnson purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Vedia Johnson chose Ozankoy
We fell in love with the area as Ozankoy is a trully quaint original Turkish village. Importantly, it is located near to our family who manage the villa whilst we are not there and also Ozankoy itself has a couple of little shops but is also only ten minutes from Kyrenia itself. The real draw of the plot originally was that it was a large plot on it's own with sea and mountain views and also the fact that it is very close to the beautiful Bellapais Abbey.
What makes this Villa unique
The uniqueness of the villa is the fact that it is on it's own and is not part of a complex of villas. The gardens have a multitude of fruit trees including bananas, figs, lemons, oranges, grapes, olives and many others. There are also a number of beautifully fragrant plants such as jasmin.

Lovely villa with a beautiful pool
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with a Villa with everything you want for a comfortable stay. It was a good base to explore the area and we enjoyed our trips out. The views from the villa are beautiful. The upstairs balcony offers a panoramic view of mountains to one side and the sea on the other. We would recommend car hire but that was easily arranged including pick up from the airport. The centre of the village is a short walk away and there are restaurants there at good prices. Beaches are a short drive away although we used the local Shauna beach club as for 15TL you got excellent sun beds and good facilities. The process of renting was very easy with good communication. If you’re looking for an excellent value trip then this Villa fits the bill.
Thank you for the feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay.
The pool was perfect and well maintained , the grounds and orchard were
beautiful the villa was perfect plenty of space for two of us we would
recommend this villa to anyone. We love northern Cyprus anyway.
Thank you for your comments, we love our pool too!
Clean & well equiped with plenty of outside area.
Great location for the village, all within easy walking distance. We were a party of four adults & there was more than enough room for us all. Would highly recommend this Villa.
Thank you Brian, we are delighted you had a lovely time. Kind regards, Vedia
Excellent Villa exactly as described on the Tin
Everything as described and lots of little extras plus welcome pack and friendly cats. Had a light bulb go on day 1 and fixed by 'caretaker' very quickly. Had a minor issue with Hot water but there is an electric boost if needed. Well maintained and very clean. We liked St Hilarion castle the best and ate outside all the time and only once went to a local restaurant called Rafters. Lots of space and would very adequately cope with 6 adults. Would recommend.
Wonderful stay at Villa Yaz Serin
Hi Vedia/ David
Well what can I say, we had a brilliant holiday staying at your villa it was like home from home, everything we needed was there to make it feel that way. The villa was very comfortable, spacious, clean and the position of the villa made it a very relaxing and peaceful. It was in an ideal spot, close enough to walk either to the local village or further afield to local restaurants and bars.
The pool was beautiful as was the area around it BBQ etc, and the gardens, well, again beautiful, Roy certainly enjoyed watering and tending to it enormously, he just wished it was his back at home.
I have to mention your Aunt and Uncle, Kemal and Sermin, we thoroughly enjoyed meeting them and not to forget your niece, she was lovely. They were all very welcoming and helpful, please give them our love.
I hope that we left the villa to your liking, there were just 2 towels that need washing on the last day, as we were using them we didn’t find the time, sorry.
We do hope that this won’t be our last visit to the villa and I’m sure it won’t. Once again Vedia thank you for letting us rent you beautiful villa and hoping for a return in the future.

The sea is only 4km away in Karakum. It is a 10 minute drive to the nearest beaches (Diana Beach and Catalkoy Shayna Beach). Alagadi (or Turtle) Beach is about a 20 minute drive and in the summer months you can see the turtles released into the sea at sunset.
The nearest airport in Northern Cypurs is Ercan which is approximately 45 minute drive away. However, you can fly to Larnaca, which is in the south (approximately 90 minutes away) and we can organise car hire and transfers. We have an excellent car hire company that we use who offers discounts to our clients.
The village of Ozankoy is approximately 10 minutes walk away and has a few shops and restaurants and Kyrenia (Girne) which has a beautiful old harbour, castle and many lovely restaurants is about 10 minutes drive away. Lefkosa (the Turkish part of Nicosia which is the capital city) is about 30 minutes drive.
The nearest large supermarket is LEMAR which is about two miles from the villa towards the sea in Karakum. This is equivalent to a UK CO-OP. We also offer a welcome pack on arrival which includes, tea, milk, bread, water, etc.
