michelle woof purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why michelle woof chose Tatl覺su
we fell in love with northern Cyprus on our first visit in 2006 and we bought the apartment off plan. The complex was finished in 2009 and we have enjoyed holidays every year with out fail. We enjoy the tranquil location and the kids particularly enjoy the swimming pool so close. We love the culture and hospitality of the locals and like to adventure off site in a rented car to enjoy the sites and dine in quaint restaurants and bars.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is modern and minimalistic but is homely and child safe, The terrace has fantastic sea views and looks directly over the adjacent swimming pool. at the front of there is mountain views. Its fully air-conditioned. The short walk down the complex takes you to the local bar/restaurant which is very welcoming. The gymnasium is situated beside as is the games room for the kids to enjoy and the mini golf for the big kids to enjoy!

first time to North of Cyprus for us. We were charmed by the hills in this area, the long beaches, the quietness, and peacefulness... A great relaxing time.
The resort was such a good surprise. Everything is so well kept and functional
The appartment is very confortable and well equiped, with taste. Michelle and Marcus are so very nice, make you feel very welcome. Thanks a lot to the both of you!
The view from the appartment on the pool and then the sea is brilliant. So few people around, we felt like the pools were private :)
Great great experience. We will recommend!!!! And have already, actually :)
We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and stay in our apartment, you were great guests and are welcome back anytime. Thank you for taking the time to write the review.
A first time visitor to North Cyprus
We had a great holiday and stay at Seaterra reserve. We struggled to find it in the dark on arrival as it is not in Tatlisu and our sat nav didn't like North Cyprus at all. (make sure you have some euros for the border insurance charge we only had Lira which they wouldn't accept)
Some great points, only 1 apartment in 20 was occupied so it was very quiet even though it was the last 2 weeks in August. The apartment is well appointed with every thing a modern traveller needs . The Air con worked well and we even managed to get sky news on the TV but the picture would freeze and be unwatchable in the evenings. (we assumed this was down to others using the band width) We did have a few issues. The whole place was a little grubby as if it needed a good spring clean and the duvet covers were stained. However the main issue for me was our never ending battle with Ants. There were tiny ones on the floor, which we never did discover where they came from. These didn't bother us as much the bigger ones, which were all over the kitchen cabinets and bench every morning. There was powder supplied and we bought another tub ourselves but no matter where we poured it they were still there the next morning. It was annoying that the only safe place was the nice big fridge. The fob for the gate worked intermittently (may need new batteries)
The complex itself was good, the 2 outdoor pools were clean. However the pool outside our apartment had an issue with hornets, all through the day there were 20 to 30 all around the perimeter making it awkward to relax. The lower pool didn't have as many (we think it was more salty) therefore due to my very jumpy 10 year old we ended up having to go down to the bottom pool (5 mins) every time for swimming. This was such a shame as the apartment is perfectly situated at the top pool. There were signs saying it was a particularly bad year for them but nothing seemed to be being done about it. The games room was neglected with broken equipment however there was a better pool table in the R&R the onsite taverna. The food here was nice however we only ate once because we were out and about every day. Great day at the new Elexus hotel water park. Kyrenia worth visiting as is Famagusta
We found North Cyprus to be a strange place overall. Some beautiful scenery and miles of deserted beaches. Reasonable quality roads but miserable locals. Great place if you like it quiet and hot.
Overall the apartment was good value for money.
Thank you for taking the time to write the review. We are glad you enjoyed our apartment and had a good holiday. I will pass on your comments about the cleanliness to the onsite management team who will ensure that the apartment is cleaned thoroughly in future for guests. Unfortunately the ants take a little getting used to as they target even the smallest crumb so everywhere needs to be kept clean so as to keep them away. We found there were a lot of hornets this year but we still used the pool with our 6 year old and 11 year old, we tend to find that the hornets leave you alone if you leave them. Unfortunately the games room tends to get misused, this is because it is out the way of adults, it's such a shame because things get broken. Nice to hear that you got out and about and visited the local area, the elexus is good though a little pricey, we found the Acapulco to be better value for money and the kids love the water slides. We hope you visit north Cyprus again in the future and would welcome you to stay again.
Marcus & Michelle.
Lovely 2 bedroom apartment in wonderful location
We enjoyed 10 wonderful days in Cyprus, based in this lovely 2 bedroom apartment in the Seaterra Reserve, near Tatlisu. The apartment was clean, modern and suitably well equipped for a family of 4 adults. With a beautiful view over the pool to the sea and with easier access to the Kyrenia Mountains to the rear, it is one of the best apartments in the Seaterra Reserve. The owners were a delight to deal with and made us feel very welcome, leaving food and drink in the fridge upon our arrival. With easy access to local beaches, diving and snorkelling spots, the mountains, the wonderful Karpas peninsula, Kyrenia, Nicosia, and Famagusta it is ideally located and provided enough to keep us all happy, even on days when we just wanted to lounge by the pool in wonderful, peaceful surroundings. Highly recommended.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at our apartment, You looked after it superbly for us.
Thank you for taking the time to write the review and we hope to have you and your family stay again in the future.
As my friend and I entered this apartment, we found it very clean, spacious, and bright. It had everything we needed, and was ready for immediate use. It had a stunning view over the mountains at the front of the property and a pool within a few paces at the back. The sea was within view. The reserve has its own facilities with an office if needed. The owners had arranged a food package which we made immediate use of and we very much appreciated that. Whenever I contacted the owners, I had an immediate and welcoming response, and felt very much at ease with them.
It is some distance from good supermarkets, and a 20 minute drive to the nearest beach. Initially, being used to everything on my doorstep !, I found this a little irritating, but soon found that the absolute peace was well worth not having everything close by. . It has total quiet, and is therefore very relaxing. Restaurants are a short drive away, and are varied in their menu and ambience.
If I visited N Cyprus again, I would definitely try to book this apartment.
This was an excellent apartment with every amenity well thought out.Although there was only the two of us it was fully equiped for six and especially for children.Welcoming grocery pack and very clean beds excetra.Restaurant served good food and very friendly staff.Swimming pool opposite the apartment but also another one suitable for children.Alltogether an great holiday and would highly recommend it.
Great appartment and location
We booked this appartment for a half term break and had a wonderful week. The appartment was exactly as described and the communiction from the owners was superb - would thoroughly rcommend the appartment and location. We hired a car for the week which is needed to get around.
We are thrilled you all enjoyed you're stay at the reserve. Since you're stay we have had the garden area gravelled so its a much more usable space and we have planted lemon and orange trees. We also have sun loungers on the terrace. You're family are more than welcome to visit again, you were perfect guests. Thank you.
10 mins walk to the rocky coastline. Approximately 15 mins drive east is Kaplica sandy beach with water sports available, 10 mins drive west is Korineum beach, 20 mins Acapulco beach and aqua park, Alagadi beach famous for nesting loggerhead/green turtles is approximately 20mins drive. Secluded beaches are located all along the coastline, if you have a sense for adventure you could find an ideal place.
Nearest airport is Ercan which is 40 min drive. Direct flights can be made to Larnaca airport which is approximately 1 hrs drive, Transfers can be arranged from both airports with a car hire company. We highly recommend hiring a car to get around the island. We use "a-one rent a car" as they have competitive rates and have been great for us.
There are many restaurants within a 5 min drive along the main coast road from the apartment.
Tatlisu- 5 min drive, supermarket, bars/restaurants.
Essentepe- 10 min drive, village with shops, restaurants/bars, banks, local market.
Kyrenia- 40 min drive, lovely historic harbour town with restaurants, lots of shops, cafés, etc.
Nicosia- 50 min drive, largest city and capital of Cyprus.
Famagusta- 45 min drive.
Karpaz peninsula- 50 min drive.
Local restaurants/bars have live music for you to enjoy on different nights of the week. There are many supermarkets along the main drag towards Kyrenia but there are 2 close by, either turn right out of the complex 1 km drive down the road a good supermarket with all you require or left to a larger store 9km away. The town of Kyrenia is a must with its lovely harbour lined with restaurants/bars and shops. There are many beaches, castles, towns and places of interest to explore. Local activities include horse riding, scuba diving, turtle watching, mountain walks, numerous casino's, aqua parks, 10 pin bowling, kart racing, paragliding, water sports, boat and fishing trips.
