Guestbook comments from the owner

23 Aug-6th sept 2009: A fantastic villa with everything you could wish for. Our grand daughter loved feeding the donkey every afternoon. So relaxing just lazing by the pool and bar-b-quing. The Turner family.

6-16 July 2008: We have never experienced such a wonderful well equipped villa. There was nothing we missed or could have wished for to make our holiday beter. The pool was used 3/4 times daily. We climbed St. Hilarion Castle and visited Buffento Castle. Wonderful places to eat in the evenings. The Ambiance restaurant-unforgettable. Bellapais Abbey floodlit wonderful, both meals fantastic. We'll be back!

10-24 June 2008: A fantastic villa which had everything that we needed. This is our second visit and we'll be back! We had two weeks of glorious sunshine, luxurious living and fine dining.

Andrew and Sophie Jones.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this villa. The villa & pool were spotless with everything you could need. Sally was incredibly helpful and friendly. Our favourite beach was “Diana” just 10 mins away in car. Clear calm water and great for snorkelling. We will very return again when we can.

3rd time at this villa and it never disappoints

  • 5 of 5

First let me admit that this a copy and paste from my previous stay at the villa but as the villa has been kept to the same high standard it seemed the right thing to do,each year something new is added to make your stay even better and this years adition of new sun bed cushions and the armchairs up on the roof terrace with its stunning views were well received.

I would suggest you consider this a home from home,this villa has all you could possibly need and is equipped far beyond that of a normal holiday villa,if you like to cook you will not find your self wanting for anything and every pot pan and utensil are like new,there a lots of different dishes etc for serving the food and even fly nets for when you are eating alfresco and eating alfresco is a must, you sit at the front of the villa with uninterrupted views to the sea and if you can take your eye away from this just turn 180 degrees for stunning views of the mountains,this is just one of the reasons that I have already booked to go back again next year.

Susan and Geoff the owners were very helpful and a pleasure to do business with.

Sally the manager at the villa really goes the extra mile to make sure your stay goes without a hitch,Sally also arranged our transfers and car hire at reasonable rates with the car waiting for us at the villa on arrival

The villas mobile wifi and mobile phone will save you a fortune on roaming charges

To say more about the villa would be just to repeat all the good things that have been said before so let me just say this is a very comfortable very clean and well maintained villa and that you can believe all the previous good comments.

16 out 16 five star reviews can't be wrong

Wonderful Villa in a Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

At the very least we wanted a comfortable and clean villa with a big pool to suit ourselves and our grandchildren. We got what we wanted and spades more.

We arrived after dark, but the outdoor and pool lights were lit to welcome us. Hungry and tired, we were grateful for the welcome pack and the comfy beds.

The next morning's villa exploration was not a disappointment either. Outside and in were spotless. There were plenty of comfortable sitting areas - poolside sunbeds and parasols aplenty. Air-conditioning in all rooms was a bonus, which we chose to use only to cool the rooms before bedtime. Fans were also provided should visitors prefer them. In the kitchen, and throughout the whole accommodation, everything was there that could possibly be needed or wanted.

Over the week, the infinity pool was well-used, especially by the children, and it remained clean and clear throughout our stay.

The location was perfect too - down the road from a farm for donkey-feeding; a stones throw away from a very good traditional restaurant, but quietly set too, with wonderful sunset views from the roof-top seating area.

Nearby were water parks and the famous Turtle Beach. And there was horse-riding, jeep excursions, fishing trips, tandem paragliding and many more activities available nor far away.

Sally, the property manager, was very helpful in advance of our arrival organising our car hire and painless airport transfers from and to Larnaca. She visited us at both ends of our stay and was available locally should we have needed any help.

We had a wonderful stay. The pity was that it was just for a week, but we do hope to return to such a good find!

Best regards Susan and Geoff.

Fantastic villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Northern Cyprus and we couldn't have chosen better. Azure is a fantastic villa with stunning uninterrupted views, mountains behind and the Med to the front. The villa has everything you could wish for, is very well equipped, comfortable and clean with a beautiful pool and numerous seating areas. It's in a peaceful location yet close to all the amenities and local beaches. Sally who looks after the villa is extremely helpful and also arranged our airport transfers and car hire. I would thoroughly recommend this villa and look forward to returning. Thank you Susan and Geoff, we had a wonderful holiday.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Would like to thank the owners susan and geoff for a wonderful week at their villa. Amazing location with beautifull views of the sea. The accommodation had all the amenities you could wish for and and all the little touches. The garden had a variety of sitting areas as it did a lovely dinning area just adjacent to the pool. As well as a roof top area which we used quite a lot. There are 2 restaurants not a far distance to walk and only 5 minutes car. Sally who greeted us on our arrival was very informative and was a pleasure to meet and also arranged our car hire through her own business and transfers from and to airport. Thanks again for a stunning stay Susan and Geoff will without a doubt be returning.

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here every summer for a number of years. The villa is very well equiped and is always being upgraded. Outside seating areas are nicely shaded and very comfortable. Shops and restaurants are a few minutes ride away as are the local beaches. The new Elexus Hotel has a water park which our grandchildren loved. Susan and Geoff are always very helpful as is Sally who looks after the villa. Roll on 2017 we will be back again for a months stay. I would thoroughly recommend this villa.

Car: recommended


The nearest sandy beach is a 5 minute drive away. There are many beaches around the coastline. Some private where a small charge is payable for sun loungers and umbrellas and some municipal which tend to be quieter.


Azure is 30 minutes drive from Ercan Airport and approxamately 80 minutes from Larnaca Airport.

We can arrange airport transfers and car hire if required. Car hire is recommended.


Catalkoy village is less than a mile away with small shops and restaurants. For a simple delicious meal go to Eminem, where the food is very traditional and attracts both locals and holiday makers. Ozankoy is about 2 miles away and has more restaurants which we have tried and are are all very good. Bellapais, 3 miles away is a must see with top class restaurants and frequent concerts within the Abbey.Kyrenia harbour & castle is 4 miles.

Further Details:

There are 4 large supermarkets within a mile of the villa with extensive deli and fresh meat counters. One has an ATM and the other you can exchange sterling at the checkout. Just 200m down the hill from the villa is the Catalkoy Riding School where mountain horse treks can be arranged. 2 miles East of the Villa on the coast road is the Beach resort of Accupulco where there are water sports and a water park open to the public for a small charge. 3 miles further east are the unspoilt and uncommercialised beaches of Alagadi protected for nesting sea turtles [we were lucky enough to see a few in June).

Nestled high on the mountain peak overlooking Kyrenia is St. Hillarion castle, steeped in history, a stopover for King Richard on his Crusade. An essential place to visit, although not for the faint hearted as there are many steps to climb, but so rewarding for the views when you reach the top of this magnificent iconic castle. Then ready for refreshments drive down to the harbour at Kyrenia and choose from one of the many harbour side restaurants.
