Overview

Arapköy Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom 2 bathroom home from home with stunning sea and mountain views

Welcome to Sea Breeze at the Stone House our home in the sunshine.

The lounge is light and airy with a beamed vaulted ceiling, stylishly furnished with TV - with a selection of English TV channels, DVD and music centre.

There are 3 bedrooms ( 2 downstairs ) all of which are air-conditioned and the master bedroom (upstairs) is king-size with ensuite and large wrap around terrace with stunning sea views with furniture to relax and enjoy sunrise and sunset.

On the ground floor there is a separate large family bathroom with bath and overhead shower.

The large kitchen comes fully equipped.

Outside there is an 8 x 4 private pool with loungers and parasols and dining table and chairs plus another separate furnished seating area and a gas BBQ

Turtle beach is a short walk as are 3 different local restaurants all offering excellent Cypriot cuisine.

Taxi transfer from Larnaca and Ercan airport to the villa where you can have your hire car delivered can be organised by our excellent house manager. A car is needed to make the most that North Cyprus has to offer and to get supplies from the local supermarket which is about 6 - 7 mins away.

A 4 min drive will take you to the exclusive Korineum golf course with it's challenging 18 holes or the more relaxing spa for some pampering.

Out and about: Getting around by car is very easy and with so much to see and do you will be spoilt for choice.You can explore the natural beauty of The Karpaz peninsula with only donkeys and turtles for company where the air is clean and the silence is golden. If it's history and architecture you want then historic Bellapais Abbey perched high up with commanding views over Kyrenia or St Hilarion castle with it's climb to the top will leave you breathless. Maybe you just want to sit and relax with a cool drink in the picture postcard setting that is Kyrenia harbour and watch the world go by and choose which one of the many boats that leave daily to explore deserted bays. The choice is yours or you can just sit back and relax.

Who will come on holiday here?: Sea Breeze at the Stone House would make a fantastic holiday venue for a family with older children who want the comforts of home and the ability to choose how they spend their time, the list is endless with plenty to keep every one amused and your own pool to play in. Groups of like minded friends will also appreciate the space and the many options on what to do, relaxing by the pool, visiting the turtles just down the road, partying in Kyrenia which is only 15 mins away, spinning the wheel in the casino or improving your handicap at the local golf and country club. Couples will also enjoy space to get away from it all with time to relax and enjoy each others company. Local restaurants with fresh Cypruit cuisine on your doorstep with views of the setting sun, a warm breeze, a romantic hideaway. Please contact the owners who will be happy to help you with flight, taxi and car hire information.

Sea Breeze, home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation, perfect location. Bounty pack, taxi from Larnaca, car hire all arranged efficiently and very reasonable. We have stayed twice with our teenage sons (free WiFi included!) and will be back again.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is just the amazing home ever!

We have been here twice and will be returning again in 2018.

Everything you need for a relaxing break, the pool, garden and villa are immaculate.

It has become like a second home to us and Carol has always been very helpful and informative with everything we needed to know as was Denise and Andy.

The weather was amazing, lots of supermarkets nearby and plenty of things to see and do!

Cannot wait to be back and i can highly recommend this villa.

Excellent Home from Home.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location, second time at property and already booked to come back in September 16. Have stayed also at property next door sorry to say not quite up to the standard of Sea Breeze. Everything you could hope for and more. Have enjoyed many villa holidays but nothing compares for peace and quiet. About 10 mins from Kyrennia or Girne as now known. Local restaurants are great as they are only a stones throw away. Turtle beech is a short walk but you do have a café/restaurant there serving food and drinks. Found a new steak house on the road into Kyrennia which is highly recommended and of course for a special night there is always Bellapais Abbey there are details in the villa. The pool area is not really suitable for young children unless they are competent swimmers or you keep an eye for them but for 6 fifty and sixty some things we love it. Food is cheap if you want to eat in and there are plenty of supermarkets close by. The kitchen area has all the appliances that you might need. There are various seating areas for reading, watching your I-pad or just dozing the afternoon away. Absolutely love the place. PH.Dover.

Great holiday for the cockroaches!!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

on first impressions the villa looked great until we noticed the smaller details like a washing machine drawer that was so dirty it had scum everywhere, the cable tv didn't work for the first week, the air con in our daughters bedroom packed up and at over 40 degrees was horrible for her, the electric kept going off, the garden furniture was dirty, and the biggest problem we had was a infestation of cockroaches inside and outside. we were sick of making complaints to Denise and Andy so we asked for a visit from Denise the homes manager and she refused..... so I got in touch with Carol the homes owner in the uk and she said her team had dealt with our complaints fine. well clearly there is a breakdown of communication somewhere..... We took photographic evidence but I'm unable to upload them on here which is a real shame.... plus emails from the homes owner that may make potential bookers think twice...

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We were surprised however that it was written and posted a full year after your visit to our beautiful villa. We could respond to you point by point but its better that all our other 30 reviewing guests speak for themselves. It is enough to say that all the issues you seemed to have had were not the experience of any of our other guests, many of whom have made return visits to Sea Breeze over the past 9 years and continue to do so. Because we were aware at the time, that for whatever reasons, you alone in your party were not happy with our villa, we immediately offered you, and the rest of your party, in writing, a full refund of your rental cost which you declined. We did this in the spirit of always wanting our guests to be happy and to enjoy our villa as much as we do. We wish you well in your future travels.

A real home from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our choice of villa. The Sea Breeze is a real home from home. The standard of the accommodation, the location and the friendly locals made this a very enjoyable experience. We have never had such a relaxing holiday. This is the perfect way to relax and unwind. We can’t wait to return to Alagadi.

The villa is lovely and extremely comfortable. The perfect place to chill and relax. We were extremely sad to leave and could easily have stayed longer. We will miss our early morning coffee on the balcony gazing out over the sea.

We first visited Alagadi Bay in 2015 and immediately fell in love with the village. We love the peace and quiet and the fact that we are only a short car trip away from Girne, Bellapais etc. Although you don’t have to travel very far to eat some very good food. The village has a few great places to eat, our favourites are Benoz and St Kathleens, both serve delicious food and always make you feel very welcome.

We were very pleased to see that there was a new restaurant this year - the Alagadi Bay Restaurant. Make sure you pay a visit the food is lovely and Ahmet and Dervis will make you feel very welcome. Make sure you ask Ahmet to make you one of his delicious cocktails.

We must mention Denise and Andy who provide a great support service and are always happy to help. Denise was vey helpful when we needed a good dentist.

A thoroughly enjoyable holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words ... yes Sea Breeze is a great place to relax and unwind and we are glad you enjoyed our home.

We look forward to welcoming you back to recharge your batteries and to enjoy that morning cuppa.
