Spacious 2 bedroom apartment located on the second floor of our private family home. (The family home is currently vacant.) Sleeps 4 (5 if one is a small child/baby). The apartment has a separate entrance. It can be classified as a villa as it is totally private. We have a very large pool terrace where you can enjoy the stunning mountain view, a shaded dining area a BBQ area which is adjacent to the terrace. The skimmer pool is so large that it will please any serious swimmer. Located within a 3 minute walk to the nearest shops and restaurants/bars and the minibus which takes you to Kyrenia, a 5 minute drive to beaches, a 10 minute drive to the historical town of Girne (Kyrenia) and only a 5 minute drive to the picturesque village of Bellapais which is right above Ozankoy. Child/baby cot available upon request. You may pick your own lemons from the many trees and help yourself to what is growing in the garden.
I moved to Cyprus from the UK with my parents and sister in 1973. My sister and I grew up here in this house. Due to the high demand for holiday properties in our area we decided to offer the private apartment above the main house for holiday lets. I maintain the property. Apart from the gardener and the pool maintenance you will enjoy total privacy. Please note that guests have private use of the pool and BBQ area during their stay and are welcome to invite their friends to use the facilities during the day and evening.
Deborah Bahadir purchased this apartment in 1973
There was an old stone house on these grounds which was owned by my father's much loved aunty who brought him up as she had no children of her own. My father built our house on the remains of the old stone house in 1974. Whilst building my parents decided to ad a separate dwelling on the second floor, this is the apartment that we are now offering for holiday rentals.
The house is situated in an old lemon grove. Guests are welcome to help themselves to the lemons. The house is in the centre of Ozankoy (Kazaphani) with only a 3 minute walk to all amenities.
The apartment has the feel of a villa as there is no sharing of the pool with other residents. It is peaceful and quiet unlike other apartment buildings which have people below or above. It's very central whether you want to get to Historical Girne (Kyrenia) which is a 10 minute drive away or the Golf Course in Esentepe, a 15 minute drive away. There is a minibus that you can catch just down the road (3 minute walk) which goes to Girne every 30 minutes.
The flat is lovely and spacious, with a lovely view from the terrace over the garden, which we enjoyed fully - we ate courgettes and aubergines and tomatoes and some fruits that were in season. The pool is gorgeous, perfect for a family with small kids. We swam and had lunch by the pool every day in October. Deborah was a lovely host, provided a nice welcome (tea and wine set out in the kitchen) and was so thoughtful, she even brought extra toys for our small children! We highly recommend this place and this host and would happily return. Thank you for everything!
Been & stayed in Ozankoy several times, in different villas, done all the sight seeing we need to do, much needed time out to relax & Deborahs apartment fits that bill. Apartment all & more than required. Location great full sea views off balcony(ideal for a cooling G&T before heading out)Poolside fabulous, massive pool, lovely 'pagoda' for shade or lunch. Great vegetable garden, which you can help yourself to( do try the tomatoes) & Deborah, a great & attentive host, if needed.

A tour around the local Wednesday market in Girne can be arranged where local vegetables and ways to cook them can be explained. If you are interested in history there is so much to see. Why not start from Bellapais Abbey followed by Kyrenia Harbour. If you do not mind climbing visit the castles dotted on the Five Finger mountains. Going west of the island you will discover the Soli and Vouni ruins. Salamis and Famagusta are also interesting places to visit.
The Karpaz Peninsular is our favourite place on the island. If you like beaches and donkeys this is the place to be. It is as if time has paused in this area of the island.
If you do not want to drive anywhere, why not have a little walk around the village where you will find friendly people and restaurant and bars serving good food and good prices.
