About Chris Leigh
Semi-retired petroleum geologist in early '60s. Bought demi-chalets (ref FR16444) in 2007 for skiing in the ski resort of La Norma close to the Three Valleys but also for use at other times of the year. Bought 2 apartments in Northern Cyprus (ref CY3623) in 2009.
Chris Leigh purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Chris Leigh chose Küçükerenköy
Location, location, location! Peaceful location where literally all you can hear is the sound of the sea, wonderful views, unspoilt area and good local restaurant (Seabreeze). And its not on some huge complex although the down side is that there is no swimming pool. As the location was so good I originally bought off plan from a very good local developer and very pleased with the result.
What makes this Apartment unique
Peace and quiet and absolutely stunning views, a bit like being on an ocean liner! Also always a refreshing sea breeze.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
A little piece of heaven
You get exactly what's described on the tin. Absolutely fabulous, clean and tidy and well maintained. The owner and agent went out of their way to make sure we had all necessary information to make our stay in this area as good as it could get. To go to sleep and wake up every day listening to the sound of the waves breaking is truly amazing. Would definitely recommend hiring a car and exploring a little bit further afield as driving into the mountains is amazing.
There's 5 local bars, Steve's which has good entertainment and food, Eagles Nest which is a stones throw away. Barbaros the owner and his son make you feel so welcome. Seabreeze Restaurant was not quite as welcoming but the food was good. Roots bar is a 15 minute walk and only do kebabs on a Friday and Sunday but it's a relaxing bar and the live music is worth going for. We didn't venture to Charlie's Bar but we heard it was good for the big screen and football.
Would definitely recommend this property to people looking for a relaxing holiday (you could sit on the balcony, read a book and while away the day) with the option of exploring and finding things to do if they want to.
A very very belated response but thanks for your great review. Regards Chris Leigh (owner)
Большое спасибо Крису за возможность провести наш отпуск в этом прекрасном месте! Чистейшее море с прекрасными пляжами, живописные горы, минимум туристов и вообще людей,рестораны с блюдами из только что пойманной рыбы - это именно то, чего нам хотелось. Обязательно вернемся сюда, рекомендуем !
Thanks Sergey that's a great review glad it was what you wanted. Review in English courtesy of Google translate reads:
Beautiful place! Many thanks to Chris for the opportunity to spend our vacation in this beautiful place! Clear sea with beautiful beaches, scenic mountains, a minimum of tourists and people in general, restaurants with dishes of freshly caught fish - this is exactly what we wanted. Be sure to come back here, we recommend!
L'appartamento gode di una bellissima posizione fronte mare, peccato che sia un po' trascurato. La cucina è ben attrezzata. Il wi-fi attualmente non c'è, ci è stato detto che c'è internet via cavo, ma per chi viaggia è piuttosto scomodo.
The apartment has a beautiful se a front location, unfortunately it is a little overlooked. The kitchen is well equipped. At the moment the wi-fi is missing, may be there is cable internet, but for travelers it is quite unconfortable.
Questa casa è meravigliosa!
Siamo stati io e mio marito in questa splendida casa, ci è stata fatta un'ottima accoglienza; l'appartamento è ordinato, molto pulito e fresco; (è talmente sul mare che non serve neppure l'aria condizionata, è sufficiente utilizzare talvolta il ventilatore)...la casa è ben organizzata e non manca di nulla. Da queste vetrate e dal balcone è possibile godere di meravigliose albe e splendidi tramonti. In prossimità della casa vi è una spiaggia deliziosa e molto comoda, quasi riservata...a poche centinaia di metri qualche locale per cenare o fare delle piacevoli colazioni. Fantastico anche il rapporto con il proprietario dell'appartamento che si è prodigato per farci partire con moltissimi consigli utili sia per il nostro viaggio a Cipro che per il soggiorno nella sua abitazione.
Consiglio questo luogo a chi ama la tranquillità, il mare bello ed i bei luoghi.
Spero di tornare!...Piera
Thanks for a great review, much appreciated!

Special interest holidays:
A turtle sanctuary can be found at Turtle Bay towards Kyrenia
For students of geology the sedimentary geology of North Cyprus is very well exposed on the coast and an excellent place to do field work! Also great for students of archaeology as there are some undocumented sites about the area.
The coastline of North Cyprus is picturesque but generally quite rugged with many small deserted and secluded beaches. There is a small secluded and semi-private rocky and sandy 'micro beach' 100 metres from the apartments at the base of the cliffs towards the Eagle's Nest restaurant and accessed by a concrete stairway. It is also possible, though not recommended, to scramble down the cliffs directly in front of the apartment to get to the sea. A much bigger sandy beach is available about 10 to 15 minutes walk away to the west of the apartments. With the crystal clear water the area is ideal for snorkelling and for fishing.
North Cyprus Ercan (also called Leftkosa/ Nicosia) International Airport is about 40 mins drive away. Alternatively, you can visit North Cyprus via a flight to South Cyprus Larnaca International airport about 90 to 120 mins drive away. Some car hire companies will allow cars from South Cyprus to cross the border but the appropriate insurance must be purchased at the border crossing. Car hire in North Cyprus is recommended. See further details below.
1 minute walk to the 'micro beach' at foot of cliffs - great for snorkelling!
3 minutes walk to a few local bars & restaurants.
10 minutes drive to the nearest supermarket.
10-15 minutes walk to the nearest sandy beach.
20 minutes drive to the Korineum Championship 18-hole Golf Course.20 minutes drive to major supermarkets and shops.
35 minutes drive to the main tourist town Kyrenia (Girne) and harbour.
45 minutes drive to the capital - Nicosia.
90 minutes drive to Karpaz Peninsula
Local interest: Kyrenia or Girne is the main town in the area with shops, banks and restaurants and an attractive harbour area. The quaint village of Tatlisu located about 15 mins drive away, en-route to the Karpaz Peninsula, provides local shops, bars and restaurants. The village of Esentepe located about 10 mins drive away provides a Doctor's surgery, police station, primary and secondary schools as well as grocers, bars and restaurants.
The area is steeped in history, especially crusader castles, at the waterfront in Kyrenia, Buffavento near Esentepe, Kantara castle near Kaplica and St Hilarion near Kyrenia. There are also roman ruins and amphitheatre at Salamis. The ruined Bellapais Abbey at Bellapais near Kyrenia is well worth a visit. The larger cities of Famagusta and Nicosia also have many historic sites and the wild Karpaz Peninsular with many white sandy beaches are worth a visit. Other activities such as horse riding and water sports are all easily accessible.
Travel extras: North Cyprus Ercan (also called Leftkosa/ Nicosia) International Airport: all flights are via Istanbul/ Izmir in Turkey. Daily flights available from Stanstead and Heathrow with Turkish Airlines and Pegasus. North Cyprus travel companys also offer flights to North Cyprus.
