About Mo Baker

Hi My name is Mo Baker. I am from Devon originally but have lived in Hampshire for the last 22 years until August 2011 when I decided to move to North Cyprus permanently.

i believe it's important that ones accommodation while on holiday is comfortable, attractive and well equipped. I have travelled to many beautiful and interesting places in the world and love certain things about them all,but North Cyprus offers the most relaxing atmosphere we have ever encountered.

Mo Baker purchased this bungalow in 2009

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

The villa was a good size with everything you needed for a perfect holiday. We cooked everyday and the kitchen had heaps of equipment. Lovely comfy bed and fantastic ac and fans that kept us cool. The garden was stunning and sitting on the swing seats under the olive tree was total bliss. The pool was bigger in real life and incredibly clean, I probably spend most of my holiday in that pool and it was fantastic. Mo could not have been lovelier and she organised all our transfers, car hire and even our shopping upon arrival. If you want total peace and quite in amazing surroundings then chose this awesome villa. 5 stars from us.

An Idyllic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Northern Cyprus on numerous occasions each time self sufficiently booking our villas through owners direct etc.

This little gem of a villa caught our eye on the web site, it looked idyllic, peaceful, well maintained and homely, so we booked.

Firstly the villa was accurately described and on arrival was everything we could wish for (sometimes not always the case) set in a beautiful location the scenery, peacefulness and calm will instantly de-stress you, the pool is by far the cleanest we have ever experienced (the pool guys are a comedy act!) it stayed clean the whole holiday. The outdoor area is amazing as is the garden with its amazing olive trees (a real piece of old Cyprus)

Mo the owner is a gem, helpful, kind and accommodating, she is instantly on hand if you need her but allows you to get on with your holiday.

The Villa is well stocked with everything you will need (and more!) a good TV, satellite and DVD/CD player.

But lets face it, you go to Northern Cyprus to chill and unwind, and the villas veranda area and gorgeous outdoor enclosed family entertainment area are amazing for just that!

This villa is sensibly priced and is ideal for the smaller family that doesn't want to pay for a larger villa that they will not fully use.

There are some lovely restaurants nearby but hey everything in northern Cyprus is never too far away!

We cannot recommend this villa highly enough (or Northern Cyprus)
