Dr Selcuk Ozceada purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Dr Selcuk Ozceada chose Zeytinlik
Almost uniquely in Krenia, the apartment is like a private house as there is only one apartment on each of the 3 floors. The ground floor apartment has its own entrance, while the staircase only serves the two apartments on the 1st and 2nd floors. The other two apartments in the building are owned by owners's sisters. The garden with olive, orange, lemon, figs, Japanese plum) is shared among the apartments. Guests have 2 car parking space in enclosed forecourt. The apartment was designed and built to high specifications of the owner (not a standard building made by a contractor). All rooms are very spacious and comfortable. There are balconies / verandas on three sides, two of which are very large, offering ample sitting, sunbathing and dining space. Members of larger families therefore have plenty of space!
What makes this Apartment unique
The partment is in a quite, residential area, surrounded by apartments and villas of similar quality. The building has a front and a back garden, shared by ground floor and 1st floor apartments. Parking space is available for 2 cars The apartment has all amenities like many restaurants, bars, 10-pin bowling, grocery shops, laundry, pharmacy and hospital within 5 minutes walk, while the historic harbor with a bubbly nightlife is within 15 minutes walk. The bustling "Wednesday street market", popular with both locals and tourists is only 10 minutes walk away.

Large, bright and comfortable apartment
Sel is a terrific host who met us on arrival and gave us a thorough overview of the apartment. The apartment is very large with an abundance of windows and access to outdoor patios, three in total. There are two beautiful green spaces adjacent to the apartment with various fruit trees which makes for pleasant viewing and gives a sense of openness around the property with the exception of the southern side, which has several apartment buildings, some in the latter stages of construction. The master bedroom is very large and has a comfortable bed with feather pillows and duvet. The other two bedrooms appear to also have quality beds and certainly the linens. The kitchen is very functional and we cooked our own meals during our stay. There is a mid sized grocery store about 5 minutes walk and a bakery as well. If you venture a bit farther, there are restaurants and a larger grocery store. If you like walking, the old harbour is accessible - 25 - 30 minute walk. We would recommend a car to be able to get the best out of your time in Cyprus as there is a lot to see within a couple hours east or west. (We used Pacific Rentals, a local company who offers a drop off and pick up service from your apartment - an excellent service.) It is about a 25 minute drive to the capital city Lefkosa. The people who live in the other parts of the villa downstairs and above this unit are quiet and friendly. Do take note that you will need to budget to cover the costs of electricity which can be expensive depending on your lifestyle habits - this is not unique to Sel's apartment - this is life in Cyprus. We enjoyed staying in Sel's apartment and appreciated Sel's warmth, responsiveness and hospitality.
It has been our privilage to have Brenda and Paul as our guests.
the house was very nice ,a bit cold but okay
We appreciate Lucia's comments. Regarding the comment that the apartment was a "bit cold", all the rooms of the apartment is provided with air-conditioning units that also provide heating. In order to provide the best value for our guests, we keep the rent to the minimum and charge additionally for electricity so that:
(i) those guests that do not use much electricity do not get charged for the electricity they have not used;
(ii) we do not end up paying all the rental income on electricity, if the guest is careless and leaves air conditioning on all day with doors and windows open!
This is the coldest month in Cyprus, with daytime temperatures of 16-22 and night time temperatures of 9-12 degreescentigrade. We note that the previous guest used £11.73 per day, while Lucia's use was £5.95 per day, almost exactly half. I would I suggest that this is the reason why Lucia found the apartment "a bit cold".
A very lovely property in an amazing quiet peaceful area
A very lovely spacious property. Stayed here for 5 nights and Sel the owner was very kind to allow us to have a late check out at midnight for free, this was very much appreciated. We arrived at the property in the night as had flown in on the south side. Stayed here with my granddaughter whom I had come to visit who is studying at one of the local universities. 2 of her friends came to stay with us. We had an amazing and memorable time. Everything is within walking distance, the shops, restaurants even the harbour.
Will definitely be going back. Because it is still winter, evenings were chilly and we had to have the heaters on but I think in the summer it can be an amazing place.
The property would do with a microwave which unfortunately I cannot do without as I love my food piping hot, otherwise I cannot fault this place in any way. The tv is also in Turkish which is to be expected but cannot complain as there is wifi in the property, one the Amazon box is connected, this will be fantastic. Planning for our next visit.
Thanks Sel for a wonderful stay.
I am disappointed by the 3-star only rating given by Cynhia, after all the positive comments she has made about the apartment. If this is as a result of being disappointed at the lack of microwave and Amazon tv, these were never promised at any time.
Everything was what we expected
Large airy apartment with 3 good balconies
The downside is that it's surrounded by building sites which means it is very noisy and dusty
Unfortunately this is so ALL OVER CENTRAL KYRENIA currently. We apologize for the inconvenience caused but it is something that is TOTALLY out of our hands. Any apartment chosen in the centre of Kyrenia will suffer the same fate. Fortunately the building works around OUR apartment is in the final stages so piece and quite should return by the end of this year.
amazing and comfortable
the house looks better than it does in the pics. it is very spacious with an all white interior. it is every thing you need from bedsheets to towels and washing machine and a.c in all room.
