I am from the North East of England and have been visiting Cyprus and North Cyprus for 0ver 10 years. I fell in love with the area and purchased a property to renovate. The property is ran by Jackie from Famagusta Holiday Rentals
Steven purchased this House in 2011
Why Steven chose Famagusta Bay
I have been holidaying in North Cyprus for the past 11 years and fell in love with the people, the pace of life, the coast line and the Old Walled City of Famagusta. I decided that I would like to purchase a property in Famangusta as it is much quieter than other areas of the island. One year I stayed in a house within the Old Walled City and it was the best holiday I had ever had mainly because I could walk to the restaurant, bars and cafes and I could forget about my car. My love for property and good imagination lead me to purchase a derelict house. It was a blank canvas that I could work with to create a great home for when I retire.
What makes this House unique
The White House is located in a quiet and peaceful area but with in 2 minutes walk of all amenities. There is a great roof terrace where you can sit and enjoy the views of the surrounding city and port. The house has just been fully renovated and all of the furniture and fittings are brand new.

If you're considering a holiday in North Cyprus you won't be disappointed with the White House in Famagusta, which is a beautifully renovated and furnished property in the old town. Although you're only walking distance from a small shop and a number of good restaurants, the area hasn't lost any of its natural charm. This was our second stay at the White House which proves what a lovely place it is as we don't normally visit anywhere more than once.We hired a car for the week in order to visit other places such as Kyrennia and Nicosia and spent relaxing time on the roof terrace on our return. If you want to experience the real Cyprus this is definitely the place to stay.
Hi Rob, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you in the future.
What a great house.
A property placed in the right location, literally less than 5 minutes walk to all main shops, restaurants and bars within the castle walls. The house is beautiful, fully equipped and extremely spacious, enough for a small family or a couple. Home owner is very friendly and approachable at all times to help and answer any questions. When we arrived at the house it was spotless and a delight to arrive to.
Both bathrooms were also very nice and spacious.
The balcony area has also got furniture and cushions and extras boxed away so they are clean and fresh for us to use as and when required, alongside BBQ equipment ready to use.
Would highly recommend this place.
Another great holiday at the White House. We did very little in our week here. Relaxed on the rooftop terrace,used the facilities at the Palm Beach Hotel and visited our favourite restaurants. We wished we could have stayed for longer.
Quality property great location
An excellent base to explore the old town of Famagusta and the rest of North Cyprus.
The quality finish of this spacious property makes it so easy to maintain along with easy access to the roof terrace which is a delight.
All fixings and sockets are uk standard along with helpful signage to assist in their use.
We have visited Cyprus annually for many years and this property is one of the best we have stayed in and we will certainly be returning.
Hi Chris, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look welcoming you back in the future.
Does not disappoint!
This was our 3rd stay at the White House.....and it just gets better and better. We love being in the old town, we have our favourite restaurants but this year tried Othello as well. Highly recommended. The accommodation could not be better and for our two weeks a year seems like home. Relaxing every evening on the sun terrace with a gin and tonic is perfection... Thanks again to Steve (our absent host) and Jackie
