The Kyrenia region
Situated in the wonderful unspoilt and undeveloped region that is North Cyprus.
Unlike in the south of the island and in many European holiday destinations, North Cyprus retains character and charm and a more relaxed way of life, but more than rivals them for history, activities and attractions.
The North is not as developed as the South and benefits from fantastic historical sights, deserted sandy beaches and beautiful villages and views of coast and mountains.
Kyrenia is situated along the north coast of Turkish Cyprus. It is a busy small town with a charming horseshoe harbour appreciated for its natural beauty. Fortified by the Byzantines, Franks, and Venetians, in its heyday it was lined with warehouses, stored with fruits of the countryside whilst they awaited export. The buildings are now mostly all restaurants, all of which have tables and chairs lining the water. The castle at the east end of the harbour is a very spectacular site and within its walls there is a 12 century chapel and maritime museum and is the current resting-place of the world's oldest shipwreck. .
Kyrenia is an easy place to be any time of the day. There are lots of charming shops to explore in the harbour and in the cobbled narrow alleys surrounding it. There are markets and numerous local cafés to visit also.
s the sun sets, Kyrenia harbour again becomes the focus of activity as the locals take their evening stroll and the cafés and bistros that face the sea prepare for their nightly trade.
You have an excellent opportunity to find pleasant places for walking in Northern Cyprus. The Besparmak Mountains are ideal walking areas. You can go to St. Hilarion Castle and park your car there. Head west to take in the amazing views of Kyrenia. The mountains host a number of castles and ruins all well worth a look for the views alone.
Just 10 minutes above Kyrenia is the 14th century beautiful Bellapais Abbey, set in a fabulous location, with magnificent scenery over to the coast.
Also within easy reach are Buffavento and Kantara Castles and many more.
All over the region are any number of historical buildings, churches and mosques and many pretty coast and mountainside villages. They are lots of beaches, many of which are vast, sandy and deserted especially the closer you get to the wonderful Karpas peninsula.
Nicosia is just a 30 minute drive and provides a great day out as you explore the old and new that this great divided city offers. Don't forget to take your passport to cross over the green line into the South.
The acclaimed 5* Malpas Hotel is adjacent to the villa and its facilities are available to the public, including bars, restaurants, casino, night club, spa, well being centre etc.
Supermarkets and buses can be reached in 10 mins walk and beaches are just 5 mins drive away.
The centre of the charming village of Catalkoy is 10-15 minutes walk offering a variety of local shops and restaurants etc and of course, great views.
Club Acapulco is very close by with a superb beach, enormous swimming pool, and lots of facilities for a small fee. It offer s plenty of entertainment and has bars, restaurant, children's play area, casino and night club. These two beaches are perfect for younger travellers. However, there are other free beaches with facilities nearby (5-10 mins).
Turtle beach is situated on the new coast road East of Kyrenia driving towards Esentepe about 10 mins drive.
In summer turtles come to lay their eggs on the beach area under the watchful eye of conservationists. The beach by day is excellent and used a lot by the locals. At this location is a small building called the "Turtle Project." You can go there to learn about Turtles, see videos and book in to sleep on the beach at night and watch the turtles coming to shore to lay their eggs. They lay their eggs around June and August is the hatching time.
The fantastic new Korinium Golf and Country Club is just 10 Min drive. Magnificent! even if you don't play!

This was our 2nd holiday in TRNC having stayed in the Karaman area before. I stayed with my wife & two daughters (16 & 13). The villa is even more stunning than the photos suggest. The pool is fantast… More
Thanks to these guests for expressing what all who stay here experience. The included internet coverage is also sufficient for streaming live TV and radio from you home country - very useful for a must see event or programme. But you visit our villa for the pool, relaxation, sun, sea, beaches, walking, historical towns and castles etc etc

"A lovely villa in a beautiful location"
My wife and I stayed for a week in April and found the villa to be beautifully maintained, in a perfect little spot between the mountains and the coast. Kyrenia is close by and there are amenities within a five minute drive. I'd like to thank Roger for providing so much useful information for our arrival, and easing the arrangements of the transfer from Larnaca and hire car. Next time, we will bring some friends and family as there is plenty of room for at least four or five in the property.

"Great villa and location"
Modern spacious villa which, although in a small development, offers a high degree of privacy. Comprehensive and valuable advanced information from owner. Villa close to supermarket and bars/restaurants. Many attractions in nearby Kyrenia and surrounding area.
Would highly recommend.
We know from comments we receive that this review is similar to others who have stayed with us but have not supplied reviews to Trip Advisor. Most have expressed a wish to return to the villa soon.

"Great holiday, wonderful villa"
This is a stunning villa, with everything you need, air con and fans in all rooms, tucked away at the end of a cul de sac with lovely mountain views. Good size and very clean private pool. We had a very enjoyable holiday. There are good instructions regarding all aspects of your stay, if anything is unclear or you require advice just contact the agent Paddy by email or text and the response will almost instant. The villa is in an excellent location for supermarkets, beaches and just a 10 min drive to kyrenia, we would also recommend a local bar on the main road, about 5 mins walk from the villa called Soyz bar/cafe, nice owners and good atmosphere. If anyone knows this part of Cyprus you will be aware that car hire is essential in order to make the most of your holiday, I would recommend you arrange this with Aone rentals via Roger for good discounts and free transfers from Ercan airport.

"Beautiful, comfortable, great location and basically luxurious"
Very easy to book and the owner gave very detailed instructions as to picking up keys, liaising with the agent should we have any concerns etc. The agent was very helpful and checked with us that we were happy with everything which was good. The property is well equipped with everything - well thought through. It was clean, spacious, comfortable with lots of home comforts. The pool is lovely too with enough sunloungers to enjoy the sun ! The views were amazing - sea in front and mountains behind. You would need a car to benefit from seeing the surrounding areas. We know Northern Cyprus well having been quite a few times and it is about a 5-10 min drive into Kyrenia which is well worth a visit or two especially at night. Nicosia is about 45 mins away and also Turtle Beach is a short drive away. Shayna Beach is also worth a visit (and meal) and this is close to the villa off the main road. It has secure gates to the villa which close for added security and parking for possibly up to 3 cars although we only had 2. The owner was very polite and courteous and the deposit held was returned immediately upon our return. We would definitely go back to this villa should our friends all get together again and we would certainly recommend it to people to book. We could not fault a thing. We came over for a wedding and the villa and surroundings made our holiday even more out of this world. We suggest that you get booking ! .....................
There's little more to say - this review sums up perfectly the views of all who have stayed here!

"Stunning Villa for a Stunning Holiday in the Cypriot Sun!"
We've just got back to the cold UK from the 25 plus degree heat of N Cyprus.. Even after arriving in the Dark when we got there, we could still tell that the villa was amazing. Better than the pi… More
Now that the villa is being let, demand is high and we are certain that this review will be replicated, by all future visitors to our superbly equipped and located villa.
The solar power installation will also help guests in two important ways - 1. No need to worry about the sometimes frequent power cuts, and 2. the free power boosts your usage allowance of electricity, which is generally charged extra by other villas.
Central heating is also now being installed and as such the property can be rented all year round in comfort.
