About the property

Great location in central Kyrenia

A perfect house in a perfect spot for those who want everything within easy walking distance.

This lovely old Ottoman house is in a superb location, right in the centre of the quiet old Turkish quarter in Kyrenia town. It is a 5 minute walk to the town centre and a 7 minute walk to the pretty harbour. There are dozens of restaurants, bars, shops and a supermarket within easy walking distance. 3 large supermarkets are 5 minutes by car.

The Merchant's House has been extensively renovated, tastefully furnished and makes for a really relaxing place to stay. A place to chill and unwind!

Upstairs, the house has 2 double bedrooms ensuite and 1 single bedroom which can accommodate an extra bed if necessary. The kitchen is large and fully equipped. The comfortable sitting room, with utility and cloakroom to one side, has bifold doors and balcony affording wonderful mountain views.

Downstairs leading out onto the pool area, are 2 double bedrooms ensuite, with a fully equipped kitchen/dining/sitting area containing a single bed and cot. There are fans and air conditioning throughout the house.

Outside is a delightful walled garden with pretty flowerbeds, which includes a 10 x 3.5 metre swimming pool and 'the hut', a wonderful shaded dining area with fridge. There are sunbathing spots with sun beds, shaded seating, barbecue and outside shower.

Kyrenia Castle at the east end of the old harbour is a spectacular site. The castle dates back to Byzantine times and has served the Byzantines, Crusaders, Venetians, Ottomans, and British. Within its walls there is a 12th-century chapel containing reused late Roman capitols, and a shipwreck museum. Huge round towers that the Venetians built in 1540 occupy the corners. These strengthened the castle against artillery.

Bellapais with its beautiful Abbey is 10 minutes by car and Algady , the pretty Turtle beach is 20 minutes.

Gorgeous villa in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July and had the perfect holiday! The location of the villa is ideal - a short walk away from the town centre and the harbour with plenty of shops and restaurants and beautiful sunsets! It is within very short and easy driving distance of several supermarkets as well as the beach, market and many other attractions. Bellapais Abbey is well worth a trip and has stunning views and lots of history - take lots of water for the climb!

The villa itself is stunning - a beautiful old house which has been beautifully renovated and is equipped with everything you could need for your stay. The pool and outside area are lovely, we had a many a dinner sitting on the terrace and in the outside 'dining room'. Make sure to have a sundowner on the roof terrace as well! The inside is wonderfully light and airy and cool in the day if you need a break from the sun.

All in all, a lovely week and we would definitely like to return as soon as possible! Thanks for a lovely stay.

Stunning Cyprus Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is a home away from home in the heart of Kyrenia. The interiors are immaculate and the pool and garden are an oasis, ideal for relaxing in or returning to after a day exploring the island. Every detail was thought of and we were even recommended the best supermarkets, restaurants and bars to go to. I can’t recommend The Merchants House highly enough and its lovely owners who went out of their way to make our stay as spoiling and smooth-running as possible.

5 Stars for the Merchant's House Kyrenia

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at the Merchant's House, Kyrenia. An original Turkish property, it has been sensitively renovated with an ultra-modern kitchen and stunning interior rooms opening onto an exquisite garden, with a 10metre swimming pool, flowering bushes, fruit trees and a fabulously constructed outdoor dining area. The house is slap-bang in the middle of Kyrenia, yet has retained its old-world charm as oasis of peace in a bustling city. We look forward to returning.

The Perfect Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

Clare’s house

A hidden gem

The Merchant’s House is a wonderful home to stay in for the perfect holiday. The house has been stylishly renovated and is large enough to accommodate at least 10 people and has many interesting features . The room we occupied had a double bed and en suite bathroom. There was also a living room area complete with kitchen facilities.

There is hidden gem which is undoubtedly the garden and pool area which is beautifully maintained and offers a relaxing and tranquil setting complete with outside dining area. The property is within walking distance to historical Kyrenia Harbour which has many restaurants, bars set in idyllic surroundings. We had many delicious meals there. We would definitely recommend this house to friends, relatives etc.

A tranquil haven in central Kyrenia

  • 5 of 5

As you go through the Cypriot doors of this beautifully renovated house, you are at once transported back to the Cyorus of old. A big hallway lined with books gives way to a bright and airy open plan kitchen/diner where you can sit on the balcony with your brandy sour overlooking the pool. Steps lead down to the lower self contained living area and at the bottom of the very private and enclosed garden there is a charming eating area complete with lighting and even a fridge. You want for nothing in this home from home and it has been lovingly renovated to a very high standard. Situated in the old Turkish quarter, one is able to walk into Kyrenia and enjoy the delights of the old harbour with ethnic and European reuarants on the doorstep. One particular favourite is the Efendi House which is a two minute walk from the house. Private parking is extremely rare in town and I would not hesitate to recommend this unique holiday property. I shall return!

Romantic, blissful, peaceful, beautiful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

I don’t know where to start to describe The Merchants House.

The photos really don’t do the house justice since you couldn’t possibly capture on film the essence of The Merchants House, which is its tranquility, it’s chic style, the gentle flow of room to room, the lovely airy spaces, oh so comfortable furniture, the colours fresh and sweet, reminiscent of English country meadows. I can’t begin to tell you about our first view of the interior, the exterior having captivated us from the start. You walk in to a large spacious glorious space, the entrance hall, which flows seamlessly into two of the bedrooms and main living area with the view of the garden beyond feeling as tho you’ve walked into the garden itself...oh clever owners opening up the entire wall twixt out and in with sliding glass doors, a view you never tire of. And there to delight the eyes and senses even further and beyond the walled garden, the spire to the mosque set against the dramatic backdrop of the Bendedactylos mountain range framed by the swaying fronds of palm trees....the kitchen and bedrooms are practical and lovely and cleverly designed.

The garden is a paradise, with so many hidden corners and places to sit and chill. The pool is a perfect size and well maintained evident by its sparkling blueness.

The whole place is so clean it’s the first house we’ve ever holiday stayed at that we would be delighted to move in to and not change a thing. As for the owners they are the ultimate in hospitality and have designed their house to reflect that generousity in their care and consideration of every aspect and detail.

I’m reluctant to post this because I know The Merchants House will be very popular and we won’t be able to find a room for ourselves but it deserves high praise. We’ll be back without a shadow of a doubt when they can fit us in!
