About The Owner

We are both in our 50's living in Essex and have 5 children and 8 grandchildren.

We work full time and unfortunately can only use our property twice a year due to our holiday allowances but once retired we look forward to spending much more time there.

Prior to our first visit to North Cyprus in 2002 we had a 'sample somewhere different' attitude to travelling. We have been very fortunate to visit many countries, sampling different cultures and making many friends. Since arriving in Northern Cyprus in 2002 we fell in love with it and decided to return to buy our little piece of heaven in 2003. We now spend all our holidays in Cyprus.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why The Owner chose Kyrenia Region

As soon as we first arrived on Cypriot soil we were taken in by how friendly the Turkish Cypriots were.

Karsiyaka is friendly, quiet and pleasant. Near enough to Kyrenia but far enough to relax and unwind. Our villa has a wonderful view of the sea to the front and mountain views to the rear.

The climate is ideal for visitors all year round. The hottest months being July and August and the cooler month being January.

Today North Cyprus is a fast growing destination for holidays, whether it is for walking, golfing, turtle watching or just plain relaxing.

Quiet and secluded villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here twice and have just booked a third visit. It is a home from home with everything you may need. Linda is great, efficient and accommodating ensuring you have everything you need. The management staff are lovely making sure you are comfortable and nothing is too much trouble for them.

I love the villa and it's location, quiet and tranquil, so relaxing just sitting by the pool watching the world go by.

There is a secluded beach nearby and the whole place is suitable for families or adults on a relaxing break.

We cannot wait to return!

A gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our 16 month old son, and myself have just returned home following a wonderful six nights stay at this villa. We can't praise the villa, or it's owners, enough.

The villa is a true home from home. It is clean, comfortable, and well organised. It is obvious that it is well loved by it's owners and their family. They have thought of pretty much everything to cater for pretty much every need! It is by far the best-stocked holiday rental we have ever seen, and struggled to think of ways to improve it!

The villa is at the end of a private driveway, and so you are never disturbed by cars roaring past. The villa is also very private, both indoors and outdoors. The bedrooms, bathrooms and open-plan kitchen/living room are of good size, and well maintained. The outdoor patio/pool/BBQ area is large, and well planned to catch the sun at any time of day, whilst also providing areas of good shade. The view from the outdoor area is wonderful!

For our son, there was a clean and comfortable highchair, a very comfortable travel cot (he's never slept so well in one before!), a lovely orange child's chair, quite a few toys, and things for the pool. There were also child/baby plastic cutlery and crockery. Perfect.

I must highlight that whilst we were there, we had no problems at all from the neighbors - they were friendly, they left us to our own devices, and they were in no way noisy! The villa is a very quiet, tranquil, relaxing place.

I must also write about the owners, who were absolutely wonderful!!! Linda in particular (who we dealt with most) was incredibly kind, friendly, accessible, and very efficient. She kindly organised airport transfers for us to and from the villa, and also organised car hire for the duration of our stay. It was all planned perfectly, and the prices were very competitive. Thank you.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to our friends or relatives. We also plan to return to stay at this villa the next time we return to North Cyprus, as we were so impressed by it! (and I have been to North Cyprus nine times since 2001). A great place to stay. Highly recommended!

Lovely family villa. Well equipped with everything you would want and need for a relaxing, family holiday. A true home from home.

The villa is situated a short way up the hill on the mountain side. Access is on a private road so no disturbances from traffic or people. We ate out on the patio every night where it was quiet and the views were lovely.

We hired a car which was well used throughout the holiday, visiting Kyrenia, Bellapais, the beach and the many restaurants and bars within a few minutes of the villa.

The weather was lovely, hot and sunny but with a constant breeze.

The owners explained everything we would need and gave lots of recommendations for places to shop and eat before we arrived.

We have three children, (6, 4 and 3 months). The older two were constantly in the pool which gets the sun throughout the day and there was still plenty of shade for the baby.

A lovely villa and location, we would definitely recommend it and will rebook.

This was the first time the owners had rented out their villa. Its a well appointed place with everything you could possibly want. This is clearly a family home from home and has been used that way for the owners family. The villa sits a short drive up into the hills, which, when we stayed delivered a welcoming breeze. The villa gets sunshine all day, although, if like me, you require shade, I found a nice shady spot next to the pool. There is an outdoor poolside bar with fridge to keep your drinks cold, and saves you a journey to the kitchen. The villa sits at the bottom of a private drive, so you won't be bothered by anyone passing.The kitchen is spacious and has all the usual things you would find in your own.You will need to rent a car, and although you can do the morning bread run on foot, a car is better, that hot weather really drains you, even at 8am. The master bedroom has the older style air-con, which can be noisy, so we used the same size second bedroom which has the latest style air-con, much better. The villa sits on one level, so no stairs to contend with. The family bathroom has better shower facilities than the en-suite, so again we used that . When we stayed, we found the expat neighbours in the next villa did a lot of entertaining in the evenings, sometimes this was annoying. The local agents, John and Pam called the following day after we arrived and gave us valuable local knowledge . All in all its a quiet spot where you can unwind and just enjoy the peace.
