Absolutely fantastic villa and location
We had a lovely stay here. We have been going to the Kyrenia area for the past 12 years. This property was certainly up there with the best. The location was brilliant within walking distance to the supermarket and several eateries, all of which are top notch and well priced. The villa is very well maintained, immaculately clean and the owners are lovely to deal with. Organising transfers etc with no trouble whatsoever. The pool area is lovely, in fact everything was lovely, home from home. I would certainly recommend this villa and we will be going back with family next year if they will have us. Fantastic
Superb villa in great location
The villa was fantastic. Very well appointed with everything one would need. It was extremely clean both in the villa and the garden and pool area.
The Villa is in a great location with good local amenities such as a supermarket in easy walking distance. There are many good local restaurants only 10 minutes drive away both in Catalkoy (Eminem and Fez), and Ballapaise which offer a high end service with good quality local dishes. There are also many good local eateries at the value end of the market. Also the Kyrenia with the harbour and its restaurants plus the shopping only 15 minutes away.
There are also many beaches within easy access.
The owners were easy to deal with and the management of the property during our stay exceeded the service level we normally receive - we are regular visitors to North Cyprus and from now will always look to book Villa Janadaba
