Guestbook comments from the owner

Fabulous villa in a beautiful quiet location to relax with great sea and mountain views. The villa is spacious and well looked after, kitchen has everything you need. We made the most of the weather sitting around a lovely outside area with a great private pool and BBQ. 15 minutes into Kyrenia to the harbour for all the restaurants, Catalkoy also has great restaurants near to villa. Airport pickup and car rental all organised with the booking. Easy to book, great communication from the owner. This was our second visit and we have already booked to go again next year.

Fabulous villa and location - can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this wonderful villa, and intend that there will be many more.

The experienced owners and local agent are very friendly and make everything so easy to book. They arrange transfers and car hire and provide heaps of tourist information and tips for what to see and do. The whole experience is trouble free and relaxing, even before arriving at the villa.

The villa is even more stunning that the website photos, is very spacious, luxurious and superbly maintained. It is extremely well equipped and has all you need for a great family holiday whether you wish this to be active or just enjoy the peace and quiet offered and to relax. It has a lovely large pool, plenty of terracing, sunbeds parasols, BBQ and fantastic views of the sea and mountains from the pool and in fact from every position in or outside the villa.

Although in a quiet position, it is very close and handy for shops, restaurants, buses and centrally placed for all that North Cyprus has to offer.

All in all – it provides everything we could possibly want and has provided our best ever holidays!

Owner's Response: Our 100% aim is to provide the villa and pool etc in top condition, which we know will ensure that all who stay here will have a fabulous time, due also to its great location and views. It is in a peaceful position but very close to shops, attractions and amenities. This lovely family like so many others, clearly feel we have achieved our objective. Rightly so, our guest was very particular before booking with us, and asked many questions including - "the water quality in the pool must be in good condition to be able to use it, I can't express how important is pool for holiday ... also tidiness of the house is really important, clean towel, and clean bed sheets & kitchen equipment/ dishes." We are pleased that once again we have more than met guests expectations

Absolutely Stunning Villa!

  • 5 of 5

First of all I have to say this review is LONG overdue, for which I apologise. We stayed as a group of four adults in September 2015. The villa is stunning, both inside and out. Extremely clean and well maintained. Any minor (and I do mean minor) 'problems' were quickly resolved by the managing agent, Gemma, who was extremely pleasant and helpful. I think it was extremely unfair for the people who posted the previous review to give a 3 star rating, when they didn't even report the problem with the pool pump until they returned home!!

The main focus for us was the pool area. It is absolutely fantastic! We have had four villa holidays and this is the best pool area ever! It was maintained regularly and kept very clean.

We ate out at Salty's Fish & Chip restaurant, at the Chinese restaurant and another steak restaurant up in the mountains. The food was excellent and the views stunning. There is a very modern supermarket close by (similar to a Tesco Extra) and the food was very inexpensive.

When we were there there was no satellite TV, so we could only get BBC news, but then again we don't go away to watch TV! There was the facility to bring your own equipment, though, if you wanted to. We had to check the electricity usage daily, but we found that the limits were quite adequate for us as four adults.

Roger (the owner) kept in regular contact after the initial booking. He arranged the taxi transfer and car hire for us, which all went very smoothly and was much appreciated. Would we recommend the villa - you bet we would! Hopefully we will return in the future.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to this group of 4 people for posting their review- better late than never and shows that it was important for them to remember and manage to post it, 8 months after their holiday. They found the pool to be absolutely fine-in fact it was Great! as did all of the guests who stayed during the weeks before them. Apart from the villa being stunning, it truly is in a fantastic location - quiet, but close to everything you need and has superb views in all directions Yes - we ask that guests monitor their electricity usage due to it being extremely expensive in TRNC, but to date we have never had to charge any guests for any utilities whatsoever, being as it is, greatly assisted by the solar power installed. This is not the case with many villas which charge for all usage over and above the quoted rental price. The villa offers free 5Mb broadband for all your needs for internet and emails etc as well as uploading/downloading and streaming your favourite TV, radio, films, games etc. Using devices such as Slingbox, Chromecast, Netflix etc is generally preferred by guests compared to expecting an eclectic mix of pre-determined satellite channels. Once again, we are looking forward to welcoming these guests back, as we have done with many others

Stunning villa!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at the villa,and it wasn't long enough! I wish we'd been able to stay for longer. We flew into Larnaca airport,where a taxi driver was waiting to take us to the villa. The trip from the airport was very smooth,even going through passport control at the Turkish border. We just stayed in the car and the driver gave in our passports. The villa is one of about 8 in a small complex of villas. It's in a nice spot at the top of the road. The views from it are amazing! It's like a different world! When we went into the villa,we were pleased to find it exactly as described! It's huge inside! Extremely spacious and very comfortable. All the bedrooms were a good size,especially the master. The pool is very good. It's a really good depth,it sloped gradually to be a bit deeper,but even my youngest son,who's quite short,wasn't out of his depth. The villa and pool area were very clean and well equipped. Gemma,from the management company was very helpful,from fixing a toilet that turned out not to be broken to telling us where the new big supermarket was. The new supermarket is called the Sah Marketplace on the main road,and it's very good value and choice. We ate most nights at a restaurant called The Kitchen,which was on the main road towards Kyrenia. It's very good value,a meal for 5 with wine £38! It's very easy to go into Kyrenia from the villa (10 mins by car) and easy to get to the beach too. We also visited Bellapais Monastery which was lovely. Well worth a visit. We would definitely stay in this villa again. I have recommended it to a couple of my friends!

Disappointing

  • 3 of 5

We stayed for a week with friends who were holidaying for their fourth consecutive year in the Kyrenia area. Without wishing to be too negative our holiday experience did not match up with the previous reviews for this property (although I note the last one before ours is almost a year old now!). We had numerous issues which were reported to the owner and to his credit the local manager attended promptly and dealt with most of them. I don't need to go into detail but most of these related to general tidiness, upkeep and broken equipment (presumably by other guests). Any one of them individually might have been overlooked by us but added together it created a general feeling that the villa is in need of some TLC and it was not in keeping with our expectations given previous reviews. Unfortunately the main issue was the pool pump which was out of order for the whole week of our stay and even 2 visits from the maintenance guy couldn't resolve the problem so we actually didn't have use of the pool because it was not clean. But again to be fair to the owner he did make a goodwill gesture in return. On a more positive note the villa is very privately situated (we had no neighbours for the full week) and driving into Kyrenia every night shows that it is an easy minimum 15 minute drive to the centre with a wide choice of restaurants and bars. The high speed WI FI was excellent. The airport transfer from Larnaca and car rental were arranged through the owner and the service provided by A1 Car rental was exceptional and very good value. The overall rating is marked against our experiences of many villas in other countries and our friends ratings against their previous 3 villas in the Kyrenia area. We will definitely be back to Kyrenia but to a different location.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that these guests felt it necessary to write a poor review, because such comments do not accurately reflect the desires and objectives that we have for the villa -in fact, just the opposite. We try to do everything to ensure that the property is in top condition in order to make the holiday memorable for all our guests, for all of the right reasons. The suggested lack of TLC and of recent reviews inferring a decline in standards, could not be further from the truth. Many guests are indicating a wish to return to the villa and guests comments we receive by email etc are overwhelmingly very praiseworthy. Perhaps I have failed in that I have not requested more 'posted' reviews lately even though I am very confident that they would be given a 5* rating. But occasionally, mishaps and oversights can happen, and in the case of those experienced here, some were caused by the exceptionally strong wind and the few others were minor and were all sorted ASAP after we were informed and by the 2nd day. The pool seems to have been the biggest disappointment, but unfortunately the guests did not notify any dissatisfaction to either myself as owner or to the local managers of either the property or the pool, until after they were back home! This is a great shame because the issues then found were quickly and easily solved and the pool has received nothing but praise from subsequent guests ever since. Nevertheless, we have tried to learn from the criticism received and have put in additional checks to ensure that guests do not have issues which are not to their satisfaction. One such initiative though is to strongly impress upon guests that they need to report anything which is not 100% satisfactory - both for their own comfort and enjoyment but also so that our manager has sufficient time to resolve any problems before subsequent guests arrive.

i owe an apology to the owner

  • 5 of 5

i owe an apology the owner who owns this villa we stayed last September, this Villa was first class and its took a while to review, we went over for my sons wedding with my sister in law her husband my mother in law and my wife. There was not one thing that i could criticise. it is what its advertised as and more, its in a great location but walking down the hill in 40 degree (yes 40) heat wasnt the best fun i had but there was always a Brandy sour and a smile waiting for us at Sultans. People great, weather fantastic and prices very cheap.............. deffo coming back. the owner was also a consummate professional to deal with as was local agent and her other half thanks all the wedding went great and the reception went on for 8 days hic hic. To top it all were gonne be grandparents for the first time so theres somethin in that water

Owner's Response: The 'hill' isn't so bad - more a shallow slope, but in 40C it would be better to take the car. As for the prices being cheap? the exchange rate is now even better making things around 25% cheaper than just a few months ago. Congratulations too regarding the wedding and on the results from drinking the water - future guests "please be careful!"

Car: recommended

In the charming village of Catalkoy, near beaches & 5* Malpas Hotel. Supermarket, bus & restaurant close by.

Kyrenia is on the north coast of Turkish Cyprus. It's a busy small town with a horseshoe harbour appreciated for its natural beauty, lined with bars & restaurants. The harbour castle & maritime museum are spectacular.

The nearby free Alagardi (Turtle) Beach and Club Acapulco are the top two beaches in Kyrenia with many facilities, offering plenty of entertainment , bars, restaurants, casino & night club. These two beaches are perfect for younger travellers. Lara and Turtle beach are a short drive.

There are wonderful places for walking all over Northern Cyprus in the Besparmak Mountains. The mountains host many castles and ruins all well worth a look for the views alone.

Lusignan Bellapais Abbey in North Cyprus is a must. Enclosed to the north by the sea and to the south by the greenery of the Besparmak (Five Finger) Mountain range, it offers the most magnificent scenery

Golf: The fantastic new Korinium golf club is just 10 mins drive. Great facilities, great course and amazing views of the sea, coast and mountains.

Ski: Ski-ing is possible during winter months on the Trodos mountain in South Cyprus - about 2 hours drive.
