A 'contemporary' styled villa built in 2005, which we call 'The Haven' is perfectly situated between the sea and mountains, with wonderful views from either front or rear terraces. Located in a secluded area approximately 1 mile from the 'Lapta Strip', which hosts a variety of good restaurants and supermarkets. It is a 15-20 minute drive to Kyrenia shopping centre and harbour and approximately 40 minutes to a Championship Golf course. It benefits from an 8metre x 4metre illuminated overflow pool with a roman end. Local British caretaker on hand to ensure guests are well attended. Villa, gardens and pool are professionally maintained.

Bright, spacious, clean and well located villa
My Husband myself and our two teenagers arrived to a spotlessly clean villa. well equipped Kitchen, comfy beds and fabulous mountain views from the pool area. Villa was very well located just a few minutes walk from a well stocked market and the main Lapta road, here you can jump on a dolmus (local mini bus) into Girne centre and to some very nice places to eat and a lovely beach (Deniz Kizi). Paula the villa manager welcomed us and provided a good welcome pack " thank you Paula" also thank you muhammed for keeping the pool sparkling clean which our kids used every day and sometimes well into the evening as it was still beautifully warm!!!. We all had a fabulous 5 week holiday. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you Kate and Martin for letting us stay at your wonderful villa
The Djahit Family
Excellent in every respect, highly recomended !
My family of 6 stayed in July 2018 for two weeks. Katie & Martin were a pleasure to do business with! Great communication from the start and throughout. Helpful with additional information prior to stay, i.e. currency enquiries, booking an airport transfer for us and then tourist information for when we where there. Paula the house keeper was equally excellent and very helpful with local information. The house itself is ideally placed in a small quite cul-de-sac, away from any noise or interference and is very private, with only one house occupied next door and high hedges all round. The house is clean, modern, bright and well equipped. The pool is great, safe enough for children but just big/deep enough for a swim! The gardens are pleasant and tidy. Air con in the bedrooms is a very big advantage. The house was immaculate upon arrival and the welcome pack of basic food and drink items was a very pleasant and welcomed surprise. The beaches, restaurants and super market are all 5 - 10 minutes walk away. Being TL rather than euro, we quickly discovered that it is cheaper to eat out at the restaurants than cook. Meals for 6 ranged from £35 at the Wild Duck (across the road) to £70 at the 'posher' beach side fish restaurants such as The Calamari and Silver Rocks. If you want sunshine and peace and quite The Haven is ideal. The area is quite 'rustic' and if you want to see much car hire is recommended but we were quite happy with the very cheap 'Dolmus' local buses. I have no hesitation in highly recommending The Haven to others. Thank you. Ian & Sarah.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for a wonderful review.
Hope to hear from you again in the future.
Kate & Martin
The villa was very comfortable. The views of the mountain were beautiful especially from the pool.
We can't thank Kate and Martin enough, from arranging for a rental car to pick us up at the airport and drive us directly to the villa so we didn't get lost to highlighting all the best restaurants and beaches Kate and Martin really did go above and beyond. Lapta strip has so many restaurants to choose from and most have outdoor terraces with sea views and access to the beaches, the staff and locals alike are all very friendly and happy to give ideas to make your stay memorable.
Thank you for your very kind comments and feedback , they are most welcome.
We gained satisfaction in the knowledge that you enjoyed your stay.

Special interest holidays:
The island has many historical places to visit and Kyrenia has a beautiful harbour setting. The monastery at Bellapais and the Castle at St Hillarian is well worth a visit. The warm clear waters of the eastern Mediterranean and ancient ship wrecks associated with the islands history make it perfect for scuba diving or for the less adventurous swimming or snorkeling in the many hidden coves along the coast.
There are a number of sandy beaches along the coast with the nearest only a few minutes walk away.
There are frequent flights from many UK airports to both Ercan and Larnaca. Transfer from Ercan is about 45 minutes and Larnaca is about 1hour and 30minutes .Private pick up or taxi can easily be arranged with the owner. Car hire is recommended.
A few minutes drive to Lapta Town, 15-20minutes to Kyrenia and 1 hour to the Capital Nicosia.
Currency is Turkish Lira and represents good value for eating out and purchasing provisions. English £'s and credit cards are taken and there are plenty of 'holes in the wall' for any additional cash that may be required.
