Villa in Edremit, Kyrenia, Cyprus - Private Infinity Pool and Spectacular Views

Villa Doyan' is a modern, spacious 4 bedroom villa, laid out over 3 levels and set in a dramatic location to make the most of the sea and mountain views. Built to the UK owners specification it is tastefully furnished and generously equipped for an extended family or 2 families sharing. The villa features balconies, terraces, shaded cloisters (with hammock) and a large patio area surrounding the 10 x 5m infinity pool, complete with a pool-side bar/BBQ. Villa Doyan sits in landscaped grounds of around 1/2 acre on the crest of a hill to take full advantage of the spectacular views.

About Jerry

My wife and I live in Hampshire, England.

Jerry purchased this villa in 2003

Why Jerry chose Kyrenia Region

We had been frequent visitors to Cyprus for many years, but only to the South side (Paphos area). When we decided to buy a property Cyprus sprang to mind, but we thought we ought to check out the North as well as the South. We visited several times and fell in love with North Cyprus - the people, the views, the we bought a plot of land, sketched the villa we wanted and had it built (which turned out to be a lot more difficult then I just made it sound!)

But now it's done we are both delighted with the end result and pleased to share it with others.

What makes this villa unique

When we went looking for a building plot we were searching for a stunning location...and we found one! Sitting up on the top of a hill, with fantastic views to the west of both the sea and the mountains. We were determined to make the most of the location so designed a villa on several levels, with lots of terraces and patios. The pool has an infinity edge looking straight out to the west which is spectacular, especially as the sun sets. We planned the layout of the villa with the idea of two families in mind - two "master" bedrooms with en-suites and lots of space for children. This was based on our own happy memories of holidays taken with good friends and their children in the past. Several years on we are pretty pleased with the result of our labours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Villa is everything we expected from the description, well maintained, well equipped and well presented, lovely pool and garden. The location is excellent, convenient for local facilities while being tucked away for privacy. Magnificent views all the way along the coast to the west. Just about anywhere is ideal for a 'sundowner' as you watch the sun sink into the sea!

A truly wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

I can truly say that Villa Doyan is by far the best accommodation we have ever stayed in, not only in Cyprus, but possibly any holiday we have had!

It truly is a stunning villa with incredible views from the wonderful infinity pool, sat high up in the mountains with incredible views across Kyrenia coastline and the mountains. It's peaceful, secluded and very relaxing.

The size of the villa is perfect for groups of friends or families, plenty of space to get away and move around freely as the inside is spacious and the outside areas provide great views and space for everyone or individuals looking for quiet.

It's easily navigable and only a short car ride to beaches or shops and not far from the centre of town with a car.

There is natural shade for the very hot days and poolside umbrellas to get out of the sun in the midday heat.

We spent most of our time in the pool, which was a perfect way to spend the holiday.

Outstanding villa with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at 9.30pm, opened the front door and could not believe that we had picked such a beautiful place to stay. So much space for us all inside and out. We got unpacked and then sat on the terrace looking towards Alsancak whilst we tucked into the comprehensive welcome pack (which was much appreciated and the best we've ever had!) and enjoyed a cold Efes. We all put the pool to good use, even though we had a few windy days and the spray from the edge would give us a surprise! The BBQ terrace was great when our family came over to see us. Plenty of seats for us all and the fridge was useful for our cold refreshments. We watched the Lunar Eclipse from the top terrace and got an uninterrupted view. The board games were enjoyed, (it's a long time since I played Cludeo) and the radio was put on most evenings when we came back from dinner and relaxed. Villa Doyan has everything we needed for a comfy stay and more. Diane and Dave keep Villa Doyan immaculate and are a lovely helpful couple. Jerry, we love your beautiful home and will be back for another stay :)

Villa Doyan 10 years on

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying at Villa Doyan since it was first built and we keep going back! The villa is a very large and spacious place, both inside and out and really suits many types of holiday groups including families and groups of friends.

The gardens have matured really well and are a delight but one of the main attractions has to be the view of the sun setting over the sea. The call to the pool/bbq area just before sunset has to be made as no one wants to ever miss this sight night after night. Just stunning.

The property is very well maintained and every year improvements/decorations/refurbishments have been made to maintain and indeed improve the very high standard of decor, furniture and fittings found inside and out.

The owners are very conscientious and employ really good managers who are happy to help out with any query that might arise. The information in the brochure at the villa is comprehensive and provides lots of information about the villa, surrounding area and Northern Cyprus.

The infinity pool has a stunning view over to the coast and is a large enough for serious swimmers to put in a few lengths if desired.

In 2014 we decided to add on a few days to our holiday by stopping off in Istanbul on our way home from Villa Doyan. Fantastic city and so easy to do if travelling to or from the UK from the North rather than the South of Cyprus
