About Stu & Fiona
Dear All, We hope that you will enjoy using our apartment in Northern Cyprus. It offers more than your average holiday-let because it is also our own holiday home. We have filled it with everything you should need during your stay that normally you wouldn't find in rental accommodation; this is simply because we use all of the items ourselves. A little bit about us, I am in the Royal Air Force and my wife Fiona is a full time mother. We do our very best to ensure that everything runs smoothly for your holiday. Our apartment manager lives next door and will see you safely into the property and is usually on hand to help with any problems or questions that you may have during you stay. If you have any questions concerning the apartment or your holiday please feel free to contact us. Yours sincerely, Stuart and Fiona
Stu & Fiona purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Stu & Fiona chose Kalecik
They say that the TRNC is like Spain was 40 years ago. The area is certainly unspoilt. It is still very easy to find magnificent isolation on numerous secluded beaches up and down the coast; and yet there are also beaches offering the full range of facilities from sun beds to jet skis. We bought at Hilltop primarily because of the charm of Bogaz fishing village which is situated a kilometre away, but we were also very lucky with the property that we purchased as it is certainly the best appointed on the complex. The view across the pool from the patio is worth a million dollars.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is adjacent to the best pool on the complex. The main patio overlooks the pool and is a delight at night when the pool lights are on. Being so close to the pool makes it ideal to be able to keep an eye on the children and it is also just a few steps from the fridge to the sun-bed - very important. The apartment is air conditioned throughout and has free broadband wi-fi. There is a ceiling fan in the master bedroom and both showers in the two bathrooms are thermostatically controlled rainfall showers, In the past we have stayed in pretty poor self catering apartments that have been equipped with just a saucepan and a fish-slice and we have had to struggle through our stay. So we have provided considerably more equipment than that and catered for all of your dining in and dining out needs. For us the apartment is home from home; we hope that it will be for you too.

We stayed at Fiona and Stu's villa for two weeks in August. We wish it had been longer. We thought when booking that our teenage children would get bored without a constant stream theme parks and water parks, but we were wrong. Our children had a great time with the amazing pool and the culture found in north cyprus. We hired a car, arranged Fi and Stu, which was inexpensive and served its purpose. We used it to its full potential. We drove everywhere seeing as much of the north as we could. North Cyprus is beautiful, I knew I would love it.
The villa is exactly as advertised. The pictures don't do it justice. There was nothing you would want for. It was well equipped, clean and spacious. Did I mention how great the pool was?! I don't usually spend much time in the pool on holidays, but this time I don't think I went one day in two weeks where I didn't go in. We cooked a couple of days but mainly ate out as everything was so reasonably. We spent a few evening's in Famagusta as its lively and had a variety of restaurants.
The other guests in our complex were extremely friendly. They recommended restaurants and places of interests. It felt like we were a close community. They even missed us when they didn't see us for a day!
The beaches were fantastic! There was one beach where we were the only people on it! It was great to see locals using the beaches.
Everything about this holiday was perfect. Having traveled extensively around the world, we are always saying we will go back to certain places. This time we mean it!
Thank you EC for that lovely review. We try really hard to make everything as near perfect as we can and because it is our own holiday home there is everything that you should possibly need there.
Thanks again EC and we are so glad that you had such a great time.

Lovely, spacious & modern accommodation
We really enjoyed our stay. Great price! I have been at this site before so knew what to expect. Great air conditioning which we used due to it being so hot! Nice big balcony with tables & chairs. Showers were always hot. Very safe environment for children. Great place to eat on site. Thanks very much we will come back. Fab hosts nothing is too much trouble.
Thank you so much for your lovely review; Fiona and I are really pleased that you had a great holiday. We go to great lengths to ensure that everything is as good as we can make it so it is good to hear that our apartment was just as you wanted it to be.

We really enjoyed our holiday in this lovely apartment. It was a real home from home experience, with everything you’d need, very comfortable beds and beautifully clean. The swimming pool is amazing, very quiet most of the time. It’s a very friendly place, quite quiet, which really suited us. Check out Hilltop Restaurant, 5 minutes walk away, great food and Thursday and Saturdays (in season) great entertainment, literally people dancing in the street to the amazing live singers! We had a fabulous time, hopefully we’ll return next year!
Thank you for your lovely review.
We are so glad that you had a great holiday, you summed up the apartment and the area perfectly. We work hard to achieve the homely feeling providing everything that you should need to have a great stay. The pool is definately beautiful; we are impressed that it has those Roman steps leading down onto it which makes getting in and out really easy.
Thank you once again.

Lovely apartment in peaceful surroundings
This apartment is in a lovely setting with a very attractive shared pool. Trevor, who lives next door, met us with the keys and showed us around this very comfortable and well equipped accommodation. The apartment was clean and the furnishings are of a high standard and there is everything you could need for self catering. Hilltop is a small complex away from the bustle of Bogaz but with easy access to a good supermarket and an assortment of restaurants. There is a restaurant on the complex which does excellent food and has entertainment on Saturdays. I would like to have given this 5 stars but for two problems which were that the TV only played DVD and the hot water pressure from the tap was low which meant waiting ages to fill a wash basin.
Thank you for your fantastic review. I think that you have accurately conveyed the essence of our apartment and what we are trying to provide for our visitors.
On investigation, I discovered that the satalite aerial lead had become disconected from the rear of the satalite receiver box and that a flexible metal hot water pipe was kinked and so was partially restricting the flow of hot water; both sorted now.
Thank you again for your kind comments,
Stu & Fiona
Our stay at Stu & Fiona's apartment in Cyprus was very comfortable and most enjoyable. The apartment was of a high standard. It was large, spacious and clean. There were very good facilities and all the utensils you would need were available. A dishwasher would have been appreciated and we couldn't get TV to work but that was not a big issue. The teenage children appreciated the instant connection to wi-fi. There were also a selection of games, books & DVDs available which was a nice touch.
Felt very lucky to have a large, quiet swimming pool on our doorstep. Also, good to be able to use other pools on site. The restaurant and bar with some entertainment on site was great. However, a small shop on site would have been helpful. Definitely require to hire a car if you want to explore the surrounding area. So close to so many beautiful beaches and interesting sites.
Overall an excellent apartment in a quiet but gorgeous place.
Thank you for your excellent review, Fiona and I are so glad that you had a great holiday.
We agree that the pool is to die for; it is a fantastic size and so quiet as it is reserved for use only by the adjacent apartments.
I’ll will though, re-read my written instructions for the TV and satellite just to ensure that they are correct and unambiguous.
Once again, thank you for staying with us,
Stu & Fi
Lovely peaceful part of the Island perfect for a family with little ones.
Thank you Stuart & Fiona for a comfortable stay at your apartment. It was exactly as described very well equipped,spacious and not too far from local restaurants and beaches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment to families with small children as everything you would need is available. If we stay this side of the Island again we would book again!
Dear OA, thank you so much much for the lovely feedback. We're so pleased that you found the apartment and location as wonderful as we do.
Stuart & Fiona
The apartment is 2 km from the coast with an unspoilt beach. Up and down the coast there are numerous beaches offering varying degrees of services from none at all to those providing sun-beds, bar, restaurant and water sports.
It is possible to fly into Ercan in the North of Cyprus or into Larnaca in the South. Transit times are 1 and 2 hours respectively. A car is advisable to explore the island. Hire cars from the South are allowed into the North side but not vice versa. There are a number of locations through which to cross the border. Airport transfers and car hire can be arranged if you require.
Bogaz village 3km.
Famagusta (Gazimaguza) 25km.
Kyrenia (Girne) 80km.
Nicosia (Lefkosia) 65km.
The apartment is located on the new resort village of Hilltop, Safa Koy. It has its own private broadband internet. In addition to our pool, which is shared only between the adjacent properties, there is a further communal swimming pool for your use should you fancy a change. There is a bar/coffee-shop/restaurant on site and landscaped gardens surround. Hilltop is approximately 2km to the unspoilt beaches and 25 minute walk to the small village of Bogaz which has bars, restaurants, cafes and beaches. Bogaz is located near to the unspoilt area of the Karpas Peninsula with beautiful beaches, drives and walks. Salamis ruins, a ruined Roman city, is a short drive away.
