Guzel Manzara (Beautiful View)
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The stunning view of the Mediterranean Sea, Besparmak (Five Finger) mountain range and magnificent sunsets, gives this villa its name, "Guzel Manzara", which translates to Beautiful View. The villa is located on a small private development and is only a 5 minute drive to the 18 hole championship Korineum Golf and Country Club, or to the quaint village of Esentepe, where there are bars, restaurants and mini markets. Internet, WiFi & local satellite TV are standard in this villa. The tranquil location of this villa lends itself to you deciding how relaxing or busy you wish to make your holiday. Hire car is essential.
This fully air conditioned villa, is furnished to a high standard, with the kitchen and lounge leading onto the terrace, overlooking the infinity pool, Mediterranean sea and mountains. This villa is equally suited for family holidays, golf parties or a romantic getaway for two. Cots and high chairs may be hired. There are two bedrooms downstairs which have a shower/wc room next door. The two bedrooms upstairs lead directly onto a huge balcony where there is a large gas bar-b-q, dining table and seating for 8, where you can relax watching superb sunset views over the sea. There is a bathroom upstairs with bath and shower above and WC. The master bedroom with king size bed has an en suite WC and shower room. Hand, bath and beach towels are provided. Air conditioning may also be used for heating on winter evenings if required. Although this villa is advertised as no smoking, you are welcome to smoke outside, including the terrace and balcony.
A five minute drive down the road is the Korineum Golf and Country Club, boasting a superb 18 hole championship golf course, driving range and 3 practice holes. Quality golf clubs and shoes may be hired from the pro shop if you choose not to bring your own. The luxurious Club House has bars, restaurants and an excellent spa offering a variety of reasonably priced treatments. Guests are always welcome at the club.
There are a selection of beautiful, uncrowded, sandy beaches within a 5 to 10 minute drive from the villa and if you wish to explore further you may even find some beaches to yourself.
The villa has fully fitted fly screens throughout, which will enable you to leave windows and doors open, whilst relaxing indoors, taking full advantage of the gentle breeze and sounds coming from the sea in the warmer months. Air conditioning should be turned off if you choose to have windows or doors open. There are 3 smoke alarms, first aid kit, fire blanket and extinguisher for your safety.
Although walled and gated the Villa does not have safety fencing as this would obstruct the beautiful views, therefore children must be supervised.
We can arrange discounted airport transfers and car hire if you wish.
A welcome package will be arranged if requested, at cost price of goods when purchased.
We have local representatives who you may contact, should any problems arise during your stay. If you require the villa to have an additional mid stay clean, you can arrange this via our representatives at a reasonable additional cost.

The Kyrenia region
Northern Cyprus is the Mediterranean's best kept secret, with its historical sites and secluded sandy beaches. Loved for its slow pace of life and value for money, it combines a beautiful coastline and a sunny climate all year round. Although Sterling and the Euro are normally accepted the currency of Northern Cyprus is the Turkish Lira, which has survived the global financial crisis better than most. You will get better value for money by using the TL, which we have found offers a better exchange rate when changing your money in Northern Cyprus.
Kyrenia or as it's called in Turkish, Girne, is the closest main town with its picturesque harbour and abundance of shops. You can walk around the harbour, have a drink, lunch or dinner and absorb the beauty of this fantastic place. There are several boat trips from the harbour including a sunset trip at about 6pm. In the harbour is the 9th century Byzantine castle, which houses the shipwreck museum, containing the remains of a 4th century BC ship and its cargo.
Close to the town centre is Bellapais, where Laurence Durrell lived and wrote the classic Bitter Lemons. In Bellapais there is a 14th century Abbey, giving spectacular views over land and sea.
The Besparmak mountain range is home to some ancient castles including St Hilarion which is said to be Walt Disney's inspiration for the Magic Kingdom in Sleeping Beauty.
The District of Kyrenia hosts many restaurants, bars, nightclubs and casinos.
The coastline is famed for its breeding programme of Green and Loggerhead Turtles. You will find a turtle conservation area at Alagadi beach, where you can book a trip to observe the turtles laying and the hatching of their offspring.
Esentepe is located about 25 minutes east of Kyrenia. This quaint village is just 2 kilometres up the hill from the villa. The village has numerous bars, restaurants and mini markets. Two larger supermarkets are located on the coast road, just 3 minutes drive away.
There is always something going on at one of the bars and at the beginning of June the village hosts the Apricot Festival with various events going on all week.
A short drive down the road is the Korineum Golf and Country Club, boasting a superb 18 hole championship golf course, driving range and 3 practice holes. The luxurious club house has bars, restaurants and an excellent, reasonably priced spa offering a wide range of treatments.
There are a selection of uncrowded beaches and if you wish to explore further you may even find some beaches to yourself. Other activities within easy reach are Diving, Sailing, Trekking, Cycling, Fishing, Horse Riding, Go Karting and if you fancy a flutter, numerous Casinos. If you drive east from the villa you will travel through numerous small villages, each with their own charm, until you come to the Karpas region, where you can observe wild donkeys or laze on a deserted beach.
Driving west from the villa you will pass the Golf Club on your left, various beaches on your right and come to the Acapulco resort. For a reasonable fee you can use their superb beaches with sun beds, parasols and cafe bars and have access to jet skiing, paragliding and other water sports.

"Fantastic relaxing stay in a superb villa."
We stayed with friends (8 of us in total) in this well laid out and spacious villa. It was a very stress free and relaxing stay, the pool was a great place to just sit and read or just look at the wonderful views of the sea, and the sunsets were just amazing. The local restaurants were very good quality and excellent value for money. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa if you are looking to get away and completely unwind.
Thank you for your kind words. We are very pleased you had such a stress free, enjoyable holiday.

"Superb Wedding Accommodation"
My Son and Daughter-in-law were recently married in Northern Cyprus and we rented this beautiful villa as our holiday base. The villa was absolutely perfect for our needs and beyond our expectations in terms of location, villa facilities and cleanliness. The villa owners could not have been more helpful and so thoughtful - helping with taxis, car hire, welcome hamper etc. a wedding is extremely stressful but they helped alleviate some of the stress! So many great touches throughout the villa to make it a real home from home!
We cannot recommend the villa highly enough and would happily guarantee to anyone wanting to explore Northern Cyprus there really is nowhere better!
It is always a pleasure to hear our guests enjoy villa Guzel Manzara, as much as we do. It was also a pleasure our villa was part of your wedding arrangements.

"Perfect in every way"
We went to Esentepe to try and sell a piece of land my father bought in 1970 so staying at Guzel Manzara was a great base.
We had a very warm welcome from Mike and Lyn who look after the property.
The villa was clean, spacious with a wonderful pool where you had sun all day and wonderful sunsets.
You do need a car in Northern Cyprus and Phil the owner organised the taxi from the airport and our car hire was waiting at the villa on our arrival.
You can not walk into the village from the villa ( a big hill to climb) but a few minutes in the car and you have plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from.
Esentepe has changed a lot since 1970 but still holds a lot of charm and is unspoilt.
The back road over the mountains is a must to Famagusta. Kyrenia harbour and Bellapais are a good day trip out if you can drag your self from the pool!
We think it is perfect. Glad you do too.
