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.

The Kyrenia District
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.

My mother and I stayed at Guzel Manzara with my 2 year old son, it was absolutely perfect. The villa was really spacious and comfortable, we took full advantage of the pool which had stunning views and in the evenings we sat up on the huge balcony to watch the glorious sunsets. Phil and Maxine were incredibly helpful and the transfer and hire car service that they sorted out for us was much appreciated. There is plenty to see and do in the area, Kyrenia harbour is lovely and the place to book any boat trips. Driving up into the mountains there are plenty of castles and churches to visit. We would definitely return to explore some more.
Thank you for your kind words. We find this villa, the perfect location to relax.

"BEAUTIFUL VILLA IN A GOOD LOCATION"
Well equipped villa with lots of space so everyone can relax. Beaches and restaurants close by. Not far to Kyrenia and golf course down the road. Something for everyone.
Thank you. We are always pleased that our guests have had a good relaxing holiday.

"The Guzel Manzara villa surpasses its name."
My partner and I, together with my grown-up daughter have just returned from a week's wonderful holiday staying in this beautiful villa. It is spacious, extremely well equipped, and set in the perfect location. We found it so enjoyable just relaxing around the lovely pool, that we didn't visit any of the places that we had intended, and will certainly have to go back again. We did eat out at some of the local restaurants, of which there are plenty, and made a couple of visits to Kyrenia, where we ate in restaurants which had great views overlooking the lovely harbour. The owners of the villa have been fantastic right from my first enquiry about renting it, providing us with all the information and advice that we could possibly need, and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this villa to others.
Many thanks for your glowing review.

We stayed at Guzel Manzara in August this year , the weather was gorgeous and very hot, we had a really lovely time relaxing by the pool and taking in the splendid views, the Villa was absolutely fantastic well laid out and very comfortable, we were a few minutes’ walk from the beach, and could walk up the hill to the Village where there were some excellent restaurants and some local shops, Kyrenia was a short drive and had a beautiful Harbour with some lovely Restaurants and there were plenty of shops, I would highly recommend this Villa and I can’t wait to go back next year!
Many thanks for your kind words regarding our villa. We are always pleased when guests love it as much as we do.

"Great location, spacious and clean with spectacular views."
From the start of organising this holiday it was a smooth experience. Phil and Maxine were very helpful. The villa itself has spectacular views of the sea and great sun sets that you can enjoy from the comfort of the sunbeds around the pool. The children made the most of the pool making use of the lilo's and other inflatables, it was a challenge getting them out of the pool so we could drive down to Kyrenia harbour for the evenings. The drive to the harbour takes about 30 minutes. The villa itself was spacious and clean, with plenty of towels and sheets etc.... A supermarket is located five minutes down the road which cfaters for most needs and also a couple of supermarkets on the main road to Kyrenia about 15 minutes away. We did not use the local restaurants in Esentepe, we spent most of the time at Kyrenia harbour in the evenings where there are many places to eat. I would recommend a visit to the old monastry in Bellepais which is about 15 minutes away in the mountains. There is a wonderful restaurant at the monastry with great views of the area and coast. We also enjoyed a wonderful evening boat trip from the harbour from 19:00 to 23:00. The trip included great food and drinks, music, swimming and a great view of the stars. We are happy to recommend the villa!!
We are glad you enjoyed your experience at the villa. It is a shame that you did not manage to eat at the local restaurants, as we rate them highly.
