About Karen Gallagher
My husband and I have lived in the TRNC for 11 years. We moved here to escape the hustle and bustle of the UK. Our lives are more relaxed and generally feel a lot better living the Cyprus lifestyle!
Karen Gallagher purchased this Bungalow in 2012
Why Karen Gallagher chose Çatalköy
It was on a visit to family that I found Catalkoy. But it took a further three years to find the right villa to buy. Villa Sakin has just the right mix between tranquility and privacy with easy access to beaches and other life's essentials like supermarkets, pharmacies and banks. It is well positioned for access to the airport and the harbour town of Kyrenia. The choice of supermarkets and produce is brilliant. The night life offers plenty of variety, Indian Restaurants, Turkish Restaurants and plenty of European Restaurants. The Bars are fantastic with one within walking distance, with draught beer and a good selection of wines and great meals. Also they have SKY TV.
What makes this Bungalow unique
You can drive either East or West to an amazing array of beaches, all within 10 - 30 minutes. But you will be tempted just to soak up the stunning mountain view, sat by the swimming pool early in the morning, with wonderful pine fresh air or dine alfresco on one of the many terraces but then you might wish to easy drive to a local restaurant. This property is not on an estate. It is not an road leading anywhere. At Villa Sakin you have peace and privacy but can get to whatever you need in minutes.

I would just like to say Villa Sakin was a joy and exceeded our expectations.
The whole experience from being met at the airport by the Wonderful Driver Volkan and the delivery of the car was seamless.
The welcome pack was a lifesaver arriving so late. i think you have thought of everything to make sure people enjoy their stay.
We could have quite a happily stayed forever.
We had a great holiday and are so pleased to have found Villa Sakin, it is by far the best we have stayed in.
We loved everything, the house, the garden, the pool, the location, just perfect!
Such a high standard deserves to be recognised.
The Villa is superb,immaculately clean,large airy rooms with both A/C ceiling fans and radiators.WIFI is an added bonus.
It is well equiped and lacks nothing-home from home.
The pool is excellent and the garden a delight to wander round.
The caring management team Karen & Terry are a wonderful asset,being both efficient and helpful----nothing was too much trouble.
We highly recommend this villa -----its the best we have stayed in!
Several beaches and coves are within 10 minute drive. Shayna Beach with bar and lively open air restaurant. Diana Beach with Ssandy beach and water sports. Alagadi Beach with Long stretches of sand, turtle watching and safe swimming make it a perfect family location. They have a great beach restaurant offering local and European cuisine. The best beach experience is at the Karpas Penisular - well worth a day trip.
If flying via Turkey to Ercan the airport is approx 40 minutes drive. If flying to Larnaca the transfer time is approx 1.5 hours.
Historical Bellapais is a 10 minute drive from the accommodation. Catalkoy Village is walking distance, as is 'The Fez' a popular bar/restaurant offering live music, fine dining and Sky TV. Kyrenia Harbour is a 10 minute drive, with great restaurants and the harbour is a must.
There are two excellent supermarkets open 7 days a week, early until late offering English/European produce within 5 minutes drive, along with a super English speaking pharmacy,brilliant bakery, ATM and DVD shop.
Cyprus has a wonderful climate. One of the best in the Mediterranean so a great destination far beyond the summer months. There are three Crusader Castles to visit in the mountains and one at picturesque Kyrenia harbour, also a great destination for people watching over a drink with wonderful setting. Bellapais Abbey built in 1325 is legendary and a must to visit. Kyrenia is ideal for hiking for all ages, especially in the spring and autumn. There are boat trips, paragliding, horse riding plus great shopping especially for leather.
