Peaceful location to retreat to
Villa Mavi is our family holiday home and we love nothing more than getting together to enjoy the villa and all that North Cyprus has to offer. The weather, the views the private pool and alfresco dinning have an instant calming effect on us all and we love to wind down from our busy lives and enjoy quality time together and some of our best times have come from laughing and chatting, enjoying good food and the occasional wine. We like to know that other families and friends can enjoy all that our home has to offer. "Why did we call our home Villa Mavi?" Mavi means blue in the Turkish language and our villa is wrapped in clear blue skies and the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea for as far as the eye can see. Mavi is the perfect name to describe our home.
Laura purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Laura chose Bahçeli
We chose North Cyprus over many other countries for its natural coastline and innocent charm of days gone by. We then chose the Villa for its fantastic sea and mountain views and shaped it to be everything you might expect of a Mediterranean villa; light, clean and airy, with swirling marble floors and flowing white voiles throughout. A peaceful location, you can listen to the ebb of the sea and the call for prayer or take a trip to the historic town of Kyrenia, with its picturesque, horseshoe harbour, fantastic restaurants and casinos. North Cyprus is full of Byzantine and Roman history, lots of choice for a day trip. The infamous, unspoilt and protected area that is the Karpaz is magical, with rugged coastlines, panoramic views and home to many bird species and donkeys left to roam fre
What makes this Villa unique
The property is part of a small and exclusive development, offering peace and quiet and the choice to stay in the country and absorb views of the Mediterranean Sea with the occasional fishing boat bobbing by, the rugged mountains and meadows with ancient olive trees, or, the choice to drive into the town of Kyrenia to experience the bustling day and night life on offer, the villa really does provide the best of both worlds.

Stunning villa with fabulous views
We could not fault this villa. It is beautiful with marble floors and everything that you need for a holiday. The pool was a great size, surrounded by bougainvillea and perfect to sunbathe beside and cool down in.
All three bedrooms were spacious with much needed aircon.
The views from the villa of the sea were amazing, as were the sunsets we experienced from the balcony outside the main bedroom.
The only negative was that the villa wasn’t more centrally located. A car is a necessity for the supermarket, restaurants and access to beaches.
We have just returned from this villa, having spent a week there. It is a truly lovely place, everything is as described. The pool area was a particular favourite of ours as the pool is slightly bigger than those usually found in such villas.
There are lots of restaurants around the area - The Spice Garden was a favourite of ours.
Laura was an extremely efficient and helpful villa owner; we would definitely use this villa again.
We did use Cyprus Pines for travel arrangements to and from the airport, and also for car hire, but would not recommend them or use them again.
One of the best.
From start to finish this was one of our most relaxing holidays in a wonderful villa that is obviously a much loved second home to the Laura and Trevor. From communications on making our booking to arriving at the villa with a very well stocked welcome pack we could not have wished for a better start. We were greeted at the Villa by Anne who gave us lots of information along with the information already available in the Villa itself. The villa is immaculate with every conceivable item you would need to make it feel home from home. Stunning views, quiet and yet close enough to numerous restaurants and Bars. A car is recommended to enable you to visit the numerous towns, villages and historic sites available to make your stay even more memorable. Laura recommended Cyprus Pines for our transfer and car hire and they also did not disappoint. We would not hesitate to recommend Villa Mavi and certainly intend to return.
The villa was fantastic and perfect for up to 6 people. The pool was a great size and we could not wish for better, peaceful place. The local bistro/bars were good and within easy driving distance. An absolute perfect place to unwind and relax! 10/10
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a positive review. Hope you’re all feeling suitably chilled.
I can honestly say this was one of the most amazing holidays, the villa is absolutely beautiful and situated in a lovely complex. Whether for a family or just a couple of you, you will not be disappointed. There are lovely local bars, beaches and coves, local shops and markets and everyone is so friendly. Kyrenia isn't a long drive and is great for a seafood lunch in the harbour. We visited a lot of the castles which were well worth the trips especially if you like an amazing view!! Don't wear flip flops is my only advice!
We also went to Karpaz and had an incredible experience, we ended up finding a turtle nesting beach which we had all to ourselves, as we were swimming we realised we were swimming with sea turtles, they were very curious and friendly, but we made sure we didn't get too close to make sure we didn't disturb/frighten them. It was one of the most amazing experiences I've had.
Once again I can't thank Laura and Trevor enough, they were so helpful and everything about this villa makes it feel so lovely and homely. We will definitely be recommending this villa to friends and family!
Thank you! It's been incredible
