About Paula Dorrell
Hello, my name is Paula and my husband is Iain. We live in Weybridge, wonderful place when the sun shines. I retired in 2008, and since then have spent my time doing everything from Bear Rescue in Cambodia to being a film extra. My other half will be working for a while yet, but, on his retirement we will spend much of our time enjoying our Catalkoy Villa and the delights of North Cyprus, with friends and relatives.
Paula Dorrell purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Paula Dorrell chose Çatalköy
In 2001 visiting North Cyprus we were amazed to find this unique island hardly touched by commercialism - how could this be? The quaint streets, houses surrounded by rainbows of Bougainvillea mingled with Jasmine imparting a wonderful heady scent. Historic sites, wall to wall sunshine - wow. However, it was only on reading a headline in a local newspaper; 'Boys arrested for stealing lemons' we realised if this was the worst to happen we wanted to stay. Searching the Island we found our dream village Catalkoy, every convenience yet away from development areas, but, between harbour and golf course. By chance, early one evening, we found a plot of land there and as we gazed out at the Mediterranean with shafts of golden sunlight gently setting into the blue we knew. The rest, history...
What makes this Villa unique
Our Architect. Cypriot, trained in USA was able to bring together the design and style we sought. In 2002/3 our holidays were busy creating both interior and exterior areas which encompassed both good design and comfort. This entailed importing many furnishings and books for the library. Our first real holiday was 2004. With the realisation we had a haven far beyond original expectation. Somewhere we and our friends plus guests, like yourself, could be as active or as laid back as you like. Decisions, decisions; a walk to the health club, the beach, some historic culture? Could be a day by the pool, whilst thinking about a local restaurant for supper. After which you may choose to sleep on the roof terrace with a cast of a 1000 stars to take you to effervescent oblivion. Until tomorrow.

Great all round
We have now stayed 3 times in the lovely Villa White House. The owners and manager are extremely helpful and accommodating. We have witnessed the villa being upgraded and refreshed in the time we have been coming. We will definitely stay again soon! Clean and well equipped nice and quiet, not overlooked. Walking distance to supermarket and restaurants! We spent most evenings on the roof terrace, devouring a bottle of the local gin (£3 a bottle) whilst watching the sun go down over the sea!!! I highly recommend this villa!
Thank you Lynn, for your kind words. So good to know you enjoyed the villa. We are there at present - upgrading again ready for 2015. Best wishes, Paula
A Villa in Paradise
This villa exceeded our expectations! Everything we could want was on hand. The property was very clean and very well maintained. Car recommended for exploring the historical sights, trying out the many restaurants or having morning coffee at the Harbour. Sleeping on the Villa roof with the stars is well recommended as is watching the sunset in the evenings! Very friendly feeling about this villa, we did not want to leave and will definitely be booking to come back.
Thank you Angela, So pleased you and the family enjoyed the villa. We look forward to welcoming back again in the future. Regards, Paula
