About the property

Crystal Bay View is a small friendly development of apartments located on the Mediterranean coast with stunning sea and mountain views in Bahceli near Esentepe and just a few minutes drive to the local beach, and only 30 minutes from the historic Kyrenia Harbour. At Crystal Bay View we have a large communal swimming pool with sun beds for our guests to use and if you fancy a game of French Boules we have a Petanque Court, as well as a purpose built gym; and all set in beautifully landscaped gardens.

Crystal Sea Apartment is a beautiful duplex garden apartment which sleeps 4 people comfortably in 2 bedrooms, with an additional occasional sofa bed for 1 or 2 children if needed, in the living room. It also has 2 bathrooms. It comes fully furnished with all you need for a self catering holiday, with air conditioning throughout. Outside you have a private patio and a large part of the attractive communal garden looking out to sea. The ideal spot to relax at the end of the day and enjoy a glass of local wine.

Bedding and towels are provided, but please bring your own swimming towels.

Do you have a large family or friends. We own 3 apartments at Crystal Bay View so why not holiday together?

About Chrissy

My husband and I both grew up in the UK. My husband comes from Liverpool and is a retired structural engineer, and I come from the New Forest in Hampshire. I have a background in IT and hold professional qualifications as an Information Systems Auditor. We are fun loving retired people that enjoy living in our holiday home in Cyprus a large part of the year, where the sun shines almost all the time. We both love dancing and I also sing. We look forward to meeting our holiday guests and strive to ensure you have a wonderful time while in North Cyprus.

Chrissy purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Chrissy chose Kyrenia

We first fell in love with North Cyprus when visiting it in the late 1990s, and decided it was the place to retire to. Our holiday apartments are in an idyllic remote spot that gives you a feeling of being in an oasis in the desert. We chose the garden apartments because of the appeal of their design, having double height living room, 2 bathrooms and an L shape kitchen/living room. They are that little something extra to the norm of a plain rectangular room and only one loo! We felt that if we were prepared to live in them then others would surely enjoy them for holidays.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The complex is lovely, beautiful gardens, very well kept and very clean and tidy The apartment we stayed in was very comfortable and would definitely stay here again.

Scuba Diving is available at several places across the Northern Cyprus coast - the nearest being at Alagadi (about 15 minutes drive). Alagadi is also the home for nesting turtles. The students monitoring them will take visitors to see the turtles laying their eggs (May to September) and when they hatch later in the season. The owner strives to meet all guests on their arrival, and at departure. The utilities are paid for on departure depending on the meter readings which the owner will take on arrival and departure - the cost is the same as the utility company charge.

Lovely stay at Crystal Bay

  • 5 of 5

Chrissy and Arthur were lovely and helpful from the start, being full of suggestions and even arranging car hire and airport transfer for us. The apartment is in a nice quiet location with a lovely shared pool. It is a short drive to a host of great restaurants and beaches. I'd highly recommend a stay with them if you are wanting some sun and fun in that region of northern Cyprus.

Owner's Response: It's great to get a good review. We always strive to please and be helpful to our guests whatever their needs. As well as great beaches and restaurants nearby there are also many historic sites and old castles within easy driving distance that are well worth a visit.

Beautiful flat, excellent location, lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

Everything met our expectations and more at Chris and Art's place. The flat was full of light, north/south facing, had everything we needed...really lovely pool, very sweet neighbors, and not far at all from a number of different beaches and restaurants. Views over the sea to one side, mountains to the other. Absolute tranquility, and Chris and Art went out of their way to welcome us and make sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommended.

a Lovely property with friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this area many times but this is the first time at this property. The only drawback was the walk from the car park to the property as I have to use a walking stick!

Owner's Response: Its great when guests appreciate our efforts. Thank you. Regarding the distance from the car park - the apartment is actually a flat level walk of no more than 50 meters from the car park.

Beautifully maintained apartment and grounds

  • 5 of 5

The complex of nine small blocks gives a good impression as one enters the gate, as the gardens are beautifully maintained. The spacious apartment, with its own front door, was very clean and well kept, with all facilities. There were many popular attractions in the area that we were able to visit in a hire car arranged by the very helpful owners, Chris and Art, and many good restaurants. We would recommend this apartment and complex, and hope to go there again.

Very Comfortable Apartment In A Central Location

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Arth were very welcoming owners!! We found the listing description to be accurate. Chris provided good customer service, and was very helpful to us before the holiday began with flight suggestions and car hire tips. Many thanks to you both for all the extra touches provided, the wine, teabags, biscuits etc. We found it to be a very comfortable apartment, a great central location for discovering North Cyprus - I would have no hesitation in recommending it. Excellent garden areas - the gardeners worked very hard and were complemented on by us, we loved seeing all the varied cacti in the communal gardens - it was pristine. The neighbours were also very friendly and helpful - which was lovely. We left with a great opinion of North Cyprus, and will be back again as it is now my favourite holiday destination ... it was sad to leave. Thanks again both - a delightful holiday!! There was no single activity during the holiday which stood out for us, as they all stood out as being special - we did a lot of travelling and exploring, and found the people of North Cyprus to be kind and helpful, the antiquities to be very interesting, the towns and cities well worth a visit, the country villages quaint and wonderful and the food was scrumptious - particularly "The Gorgeous" restaurant, Tatlısu which we visited 3 times and nearly ate our way through the whole menu!!! Very happy to recommend, and I don't have one negative thing to say about this holiday.

Our apartment is in a private residential complex where the owners take particular pride in ensuring the communal areas of the complex are well maintained, so it's fabulous when this is appreciated by our guests. We thank them very much for their feedback, and hope that many more people will come to North Cyprus to experience its unique charm for themselves.
