A Garden apartment, with coast and mountain views, In Karaman near Kyrenia
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Away from the hordes and oh so charming

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Garden Studio for a fortnight. Karaman village is delightful, about 4 km from the more touristy places near Kyrenia, up a windy road and is a lovely restored village on the side of the mountains. Views to die for, particularly at night with St Hilarion castle just above you, lit up like a fairy tale castle. The Studio is superbly fitted out with everything you could possibly want. Sally and Mike are the perfect hosts. They provided a wonderful welcome pack, copious amounts of advice and suggestions, when asked for, but also respected our privacy too. It is obvious that they are very happy living in this area and who can blame them!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Mike and Sally´s place. They are really nice people and gave us helpful and detailled informations about the area, they know Cyprus very well! The Studio is in a very good position, right in the center of the nice and pictoresque village Karaman. The Studio is cleaned and cosy and has everything we needed: a well furnished kitchen (when we arrived we found eggs, water , bread, milk ...anything we needed for a nice breakfast!), a new and cleaned bathroom (with towels), satellite tv, cd and dvd player etc. and a nice bedroom with view on the amazing garden. We only regret we didn´t spent enough time there! In fact Karaman is in a very good and strategic position from where you can visit the Kyrenia district, the north coast and the mountains with their castels. Highly recommended, especially for longer stay!!
