About The Owner

We're a semi-retired professional couple, and in 2005 we found this fantastic seafront location. That started an exciting journey to create the lovely holiday home that you see here. We've always enjoyed a high standard of accommodation so we spent a long time selecting the right designs and furnishings to ensure the best in comfort and relaxation; now we spend much of the year living nearby so we can make the most of this beautiful property and ensure that everything is kept in tip-top condition for our guests. Each year we add something new in order to make the holiday experience more comfortable for you.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Kyrenia Region

Without doubt you will be impressed by the spectacularly beautiful coastline and peaceful tranquility that this region offers, as well as the old-fashioned values which prevail. Whether you're looking for a relaxing holiday by the pool or an action-packed adventure we feel sure you won’t be disappointed (see some of the fantastic comments from our previous guests). Unlike many properties which claim to be seafront, our villa truly has that premium cliff top location, entirely secluded from neighbours and totally peaceful. It's well away from the hustle and bustle, yet has local amenities nearby, and is still within easy reach of Kyrenia with its iconic harbour, lively bars, restaurants and shopping.

What makes this villa unique

We have many years’ experience of renting holiday villas to guests, having previously owned villas in the Algarve. We use a highly reputable car hire company for all your airport transfers and rental, and work hard to ensure that everything is freshly prepared for your arrival, no matter what time of day or night. We also provide unobtrusive support during your stay to ensure you have everything you need for that perfect relaxing holiday. Try our friendly and efficient booking service - we are always happy to answer any question (no matter how small) about the facilities at our villa or about holidaying in Northern Cyprus, to help you make the most of your time away. We look forward to speaking with you soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Your villa is lovely, pure tranquility, it’s one of the nicest we have rented. Equipped with everything you could possibly need."

We have visited North Cyprus for 10 years and can honestly say this is the best villa we have stayed in. The location is perfect, and on top of this Rose offers first class service, she will arrange everything for you. Peace & quiet, fantastic views, your own perfect pool, top quality home comforts - we stayed for 3 weeks and were disappointed to discover it was already booked for next year."

"We would return tomorrow if possible and would certainly recommend not just the villa but the whole package you offer. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done to make a truly memorable holiday experience."

'Your villa is amazing; we're really excited about coming back next year.'

‘Your beautiful villa exceeded our expectations, you have really thought about the little extras that made our stay perfect"

Fantastic Villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

WOW, what a place !!!! We have just returned from a family holiday at this fantastic Villa, the outside space is superb and even with 6 of us in the villa it felt spacious and very comfortable. The owners without question looked after our every need from car hire, transfers and always on hand if needed, nothing was to much trouble. A truly unforgettable experience. 5* recommendation to Rose and David. Thanks

A beautiful, perfectly positioned and well equipped modern villa

  • 5 of 5

The Morlais Villa is a dream – good sized, air conditioned rooms, well equipped and in such a perfect spot on the North coast of Cyprus, half an hour east of Girne.

Outdoors there are a variety of sunny and shaded seating areas and the pool is simply heaven.

We even took to sitting in the cactus garden with an evening drink, to watch the sublime sunsets over the endless sea.

Rose and David are the perfect hosts, available for helpful advice before and during the holiday but very discreet, allowing us to fully enjoy this peaceful spot.

A wonderful place for a fabulous break.

Modern Villa with Amazing Views and Superb Outside Living Areas

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed with this comfortable, clean, well equip villa. Three good sized bedrooms, one en-suite. Lovely pool and super outdoor living areas. If you are seeking peace and quiet this would be a good recommendation.

The owners are close at hand to deal with all your requirements and questions, very reassuring dealing with them directly.

You will not go hungry as there are many excellent places to eat within a 20 minute drive.

The villa is nearly an hour from Kyrenia, you will need a hire car. However there are local supermarkets.

As a party of 5 (ages 10 - 80) we all agreed that we would return.

Amazing Villa in a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday in this very well equipped property that has been maintained to a high standard. The villa sits in a prime location with incredible, unobstructed views of the sea and is not overlooked at all by any other properties.

The friendly owners Rose and David are very well experienced in villa rentals and have created a brilliant information booklet that contained everything we needed for our stay.

We would 100% recommend this villa to anyone from families to retired couples. The villa and location offer something for everyone.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

Fantastic villa in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This is a really lovely villa with everything you could need provided and which accommodates 6 very comfortably. Rose and David have maintained the villa to a very high standard and it most definitely sits in a prime location, with stunning views amongst tranquil surroundings. Ten minutes walk away is the 'Roots' bar which has a great vibe and good Asian fusion cuisine. A supermarket is a 5 minute drive away and there are lots of good restaurants scattered around locally. A 30 minute drive takes you into Kyrenia with lots more choice and sights to see.

The north of Cyprus remains very much unspoilt and the Morlais Villa is ideally suited to allow you to explore the area with ease. Or if you just want to relax by (or in) the pool then you couldn't wish for a nicer spot.

This is First Class accommodation and highly recommended, whether you're a family or a group of friends. Rose kindly provided us with some local 'what's on' info and we had a very relaxing and enjoyable family break. Book now to avoid disappointment.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. It makes all the difference to other holidaymakers to see up to date comments, and with so many of our guests returning year after year it's also great to receive impressions from a fresh perspective. Hearing from happy holidaymakers makes all the hard work so worth while; we are delighted you and your family had such a good time.

This was our 2nd stay at this beautiful villa. The villa is perfect for anyone looking for luxury accommodation in a stunning but very peaceful location. The pool area and grounds are fantastic and the views are lovely. The villa is very well equipped and maintained. Rose was extremely helpful from the point of booking to providing guidance on the local area, restaurants etc while we were there. We are already looking forward to our next visit!
