'Turtle Villa' is a large 4 bedroom detached villa situated in a prime location on the outskirts of Catalkoy village with far reaching views overlooking the northern Cyprus coastline and Kyrenia harbour. There are stunning mountain views to the rear including Bellapais Abbey.
The villa is set in its own walled garden which is planted out with many shrubs and trees, offering seclusion. There is a private 10m x 5m overflow pool surrounded by a large terrace on all sides with sun loungers. A pool pergola provides a large shaded area to sit and also has a shower room and wc. There is an outdoor barbecue and plenty of outdoor tables and chairs for outdoor dining.
Inside the villa the downstairs is very light, spacious and open plan with archways separating the lounge, dining room and kitchen. Wifi is available throughout the property. The lounge has TV, DVD, CD/radio, books and a collection of board games. French doors lead from the dining area to a raised terrace overlooking the pool and garden. Upstairs there are 4 double bedrooms each with air conditioning and their own private balcony with sea or mountain views.
This was our fifth holiday in North Cyprus four of them in villas in Catalkoy and Ozankoy all of a very high standard, but we all agreed that Turtle Villa beat them all hands down. My daughter loved the overflow pool, my preference was the views from the rooms. It was just what we all wanted. We hope to rent from you in the future and we will be recommending Turtle Villa to our friends. Gordon R, Scotland (July 2008).
We had a wonderful week at your beautiful villa! What lovely surroundings and quiet location. Thank you! Helena, Petrus & family, Sweden (July 2008).
Thank you so much for letting us stay at Turtle Villa. It was perfect in every way. The location was stunning and Kemal and his office were very efficient so everything went smoothly. Heather P, Cambs (June 2009).

all we hoped for and more. John L, Birkenhead (Sept 2012)
We have holidayed in Northern Cyprus a number of times staying in different villas, but Turtle Villa was by far the best villa we have stayed in. It had everything you could ask for from the lovely pool to the great views from the balconies. The villa was very well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. A lovely quiet location but with easy access to bars, restaurants and beaches. Airport transfers and car hire were well organised. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Turtle Villa and would highly recommend this villa to others.
As a party of 4 mature "girls", we loved Turtle Villa with its private pool, neatly surrounded by mature and colourful shrubbery, offering great privacy.
The villa is well equipped and maintained and each bedroom benefits from its own balcony with fabulous views.
The nearby town of Kyrenia with its old harbour and Bellapais are stunning and not to be missed.
The transfers and car hire were well organised. We also took advantage of Karapasha & Son Limited to take us back and forth into Kyrenia town... if we did not wish to drive.
The accommodation, dining out, and local shopping were excellent value; noticeably cheaper than southern Cyprus.
We would happily holiday again in Northern Cyprus taking advantage of Turtle Villa. We would highly recommend Turtle Villa and Northern Cyprus to family and friends.
We were a large party of mixed ages and cannot fault Turtle Villa, it offered something for everyone and given its quiet but accessible location was perfect in every way for us. The package Mr & Mrs Cowan offered was first class (airport transfers, car hire etc.) and ran like clockwork from the moment we arrived to the day we departed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.
Our stay at Turtle Villa was excellent. We were a mixed family group of ages 13 to 83 and the villa suited our needs perfectly. We have stayed in Cataltoy a few times and enjoy the convenience of the local restaurants and amenities as well as being a short drive to Kyrenia which is well worth the trip for shopping and eating at the harbour. The views from Turtle villa were beautiful and sitting overlooking the pool in the early morning was the best start to everyday! Others were more energetic and enjoyed an early morning dip in the pool but either way we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return one day. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday in your villa.
Our local beach, Catalkoy beach, is only 5 minutes away by car. It is a sheltered sandy cove with bar, loungers and parasols for hire and diving board into the sea. It is very good for snorkelling. The Acapulco complex has watersports facilities and is only 10 minutes drive. The Turtle Beach with its famous turtle preservation project is 15 minutes east of Catalkoy and is well worth a visit, especially if you have children. Hatching season of the sea-turtles is from mid-May until mid-October.
Turkish Airlines and Pegasus fly to Ercan Airport in Northern Cyprus. These flights touch down in Turkey for approx 40 minutes. The villa is a 45 min drive away from Ercan.
Various Airlines (British Airways, Easyjet, Monarch, Thomas Cook and various airlines from many regional airports) fly to Larnaca in the South. The villa is a 90 min drive away from Larnaca.
Through our local agent, we can arrange transfer by taxi from either airport and car hire.
The villa is located on a quiet back road between the villages of Catalkoy (1 mile away) and Ozankoy (1.5 miles away). It is easy to walk to either village along a quiet 'country' road. Both villages have small shops and restaurants. Ozankoy is the larger village and has a number of other shops including a mini-market, butchers, bookshop and hairdressers. There are a number of large supermarkets within 3 miles of the villa. The main town of Kyrenia, with its picturesque harbour is 5 miles away.
Car hire is recommended in order to explore the north of the island with its many and varied sites of interest as well as the stunning scenery.
