About Susan and Geoff Davison

We are Susan & Geoff and live in the UK near Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

We bought Azure from new in 2004.

We holiday at the villa ourselves and take a great pride in the villa continually improving and upgrading the property which we enjoy and are sure our returning and new guests will appreciate and enjoy during their stay.

Susan and Geoff Davison purchased this villa in 2004

Why Susan and Geoff Davison chose Kyrenia Region

We chose this location for the outstanding views from the villa of the sea and mountains. It has a quiet location. Situated between 2 lovely villages, Catalkoy and Ozankoy but only 4 miles from the town centre of Kyrenia.

What makes this villa unique

Location, location, location....

The convenience of local shops, beaches and villages.

The tranquility and stress free life...That's what AZURE is

all about!!!

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.

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.

Gets better every year

  • 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 is added to make your stay even better and this years adition of black out curtains and the new pergola over the outside dinning area 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.

Fantastic will not be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Catalkoy a number of times over the years at various properties, but Villa Azure was definitely the best villa we have stayed in thus far. For a start, the villa is situated a lot higher up the mountain side and therefore had a real sea view. The view was so good we could even see the coastline of Turkey beyond the clear blue sea, absolutely fantastic! As for the villa itself, it was well maintained and clean with every amenity you could need whilst holidaying there. My wife and I certainly felt very comfortable and would certainly book the villa again next time we are in North Cyprus. Also the owners were very friendly and professional and answered any questions we had during the booking process. To summarise, a fantastic villa in a stunning part of Cyprus...what more could you ask for? We certainly have no reservations in recommending Villa Azure to any person looking to book a villa in this part of Cyprus.

Keeps calling us back

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Villa Azure and it's clear from other reviews and entries in the visitor book we are not the only that keep returning.

All the original qualities about the villa that drew us here in the first place are still true: very well equipped kitchen, open plan downstairs lay-out and bedrooms upstairs. Well maintained grounds and swimming pool.

There have been several additions by the owners some showing that visitors comments and recommendations are carefully read and considered. One of these being the provision of mobile WiFi. We found this far more useful then expected but being able to access online maps made trip planning very easy. On providing a security deposit the mobile router could even be taken away on trips with you, we didn't have any desire to do this but the optin was always there.

One almost invisible investment was a new modern water tank and pump, which provided the benefit of good shower pressure and a noticable reduction in the stored water temperature allowing cool showers previously unavailable at 18:00 in the middle of August.

My favourite addition was the pergola occupying what used a be a little dead space, this shady area provided some relief during the hottest hours and also an outdoor eating area at midday.

As has always been the case the villa/stay was managed by Sally as were the transfers and car hire.

Location has always been a major plus for this villa, whether you are heading South, West or East access is good. The completion of several new roads/road sections has halved the time taken to reach the fabulous beaches of the Karpaz and these were always well worth the trip even when it was a 3 hour journey. The main road (6 mins drive) hosts a good number of supermarkets, most have improved significantly as they compete for custom. The range of products is excellent and the freshly prepared meals that can be treated as take-outs are first class.

I would certainly recommend this villa to friends well...those that I'd trust to look after it. It really does feel like a home away from home and it makes me smile when the kids refer to it as "Our villa".

If your reading this and are tempted to make a booking, do so. I was in the same position 5 years ago thinking about booking a holiday by-passing a travel agent for the first time feeling it might be a bit risky. There is no risk with this villa other than you might not want to leave.

Owner's Response: Wow...What a fabulous review! Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to write such a comprehensive review, I think you've covered everything. Pleased you liked the new additions especially the pergola, all the guests, new and returning comment on this area. We have another one planned for next year by the BBQ area. Yes the WI-FI is a good addition and can save a fortune on phone calls home using Viber or Skype, also picking up emails. My husband downloads his newspaper every morning, handy if you want to keep in touch with whats happening back at home. Thank you again for your great review. We look forward to welcoming you back at Azure in the future. Best regards, Susan and Geoff

Peaceful with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Have rented this property on several occasions, it is always well maintained, plenty of glasses and crockery and always very clean. Beds comfortable, pool wonderful as are the terraces for a drink to watch the sun go down. Kyrenia about 10 minutes by car, local supermarkets a few minutes drive as are local beaches. Plenty of restaurants within a few minutes drive. The views are beautiful, mountains one side seaview the other. I thoroughly recommend this villa.

Wonderful villa located a 5 minute drive from the coastal road ,from booking to car hire and transfers everything was arranged for us and made for a great stress free start to the holiday.The villa is immaculate and the pool and gardens were clean and well maintained,I have to say the bed in the main bedroom was the best mattress i have ever slept on and i have never slept so well.

The location is great 10 mins into Kyrenia but with lots of local restaurants you have a great choices nearby,our favourites being eminem(just down the hill) and grida balik(opposite Kratos hotel)

Thank you to Sue and Geoff for letting us stay and we will def be back again.

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.
