Lapta pines apartments is known as the 'flagship' development of kyrenia. built on the 'oceanside' of lapta it is extremely spacious by comparison to some complex's, and all apts either have roof terraces or large patios/in private gardens all with stunning coastal and mountain range views. from here you can take a beautiful leisurely drive along the beach and end up in the fabulous 16th century harbour of kyrenia .with its low romantic lighting, antique fishing boats, and scores of international restaurants., also mosques and turkish baths are to found. also continuing on you will find BELAPAIS ABBEY, then the 'karpaz' mile after mile of unspoiled unused golden beaches,turtle hatcheries,wild donkeys,and Hares, but above all an aquamarine ocean. seek out a basic hotel, some on the beach ,[oasis], where the owner will cook for you under the stars.but it is very very basic but you can have your own karpaz alsation dog that will guard the door all night [no extra charge]
A 20% deposit or £200 must be received by the owner before a booking can be secured. balance amount must be received no later than 1 month before arrival also .a £100 secruity/damage deposit must also accompany the balance ...this will be returned forthwidth [normaly within 10 days] after the cleaner/ manager report has been received. Because the cost of electricity has gone through the roof in trnc [higher than uk now ] it has been unfortunately necessary to charge the visitors for what is used . To clarify this, winter ,spring and autumn lets will run about £10 per week ... summer time lets when AIR-CONDITIONING is used .. could be around £25.00 a week or over ?.?DEPENDING ON HOW LOW YOU SET THE TEMPS on the remotes.[and how many bedrooms you use ]. it is strongly recomended to take a reading from the meter upon arrival and again upon departure [the meters are mounted in the entrance lobby within a wooden cabinet]...a comfortable setting is about 22/24 degrees .**the lower the setting the more it will cost .... electric will only be charged at the local electricity boards rate.** .and this will be deducted from your secruity deposit .
The Kyrenia region
THE COASTAL WALKWAY [stage 1] IS NOW COMPLETE.AND ONLY 300 Metres away..Very unspoiled area, with dramatic views both from the mountains and towards the mountains.For 10months of the year it is pretty much rain free. .Some superb coastal drives and you will never be far from a friendly bar or restaurant.if you should take the rmountain ridge drive you will find Hilarian castle with breathtaking views i believe it dates back to the 12th century!! The actual harbour of kyenia with its fortress dates back to the 14th century.Its very unique, unspoilet,a myriad of international restaurants,mosques,turkish baths cobbled streets,they say the jewel of the med.[or the meds best kept secret ?] Some splendid locals haunts can be found where amazing deals can be experienced like 'Cenap' in old Alsanjack village ,24 courses for £12 !!...fantastic local wines in supermarkets for £5.00 local brandy 75cl £2.80.!! At the moment turkish cyprus also called trnc. is without doubt the meditteraneans best kept secret ...its free from the euro and also Much cheaper than TURKEY !!. ..what more does one need ?
Just 20mins drive away from kyrenia 14th century harbour is Lapta oceanside,it is actually a tourist destination, it boasts several 5 star hotels, several casinos..all with restaurants,bars, and typical turkish folk nights.[a really good deal at about £15 per person including drinks!!]
Myself i favour several little oceans edge cafe's one being sardunya beach restaraunt [the Start of the coastal Walkway]......and a fabulous new hotel restaurant called haci ali ...wow! you should see the pool right over the ocean and this year a jetty out to the sea with bar should be complete.Choose to swim in either. Also a pretty good italian just opened up called 'veni vici'close by. Come back sit around the pool and watch the sunset !! Silver Rocks [formerly Shirley Valentines ] nice for early evening drinks sunsets and apool with views . also right on the waves is the Calamari fish cafe' . Next day go into Old Lapta village and get a really good hair cut and shave for 15 lira [men only ] !!....Dont laugh but you really should try a Real Turkish Kebab in alsanjack 'Fast Food' ..the lamb is superb..! and i dont even like kebabs!,,.two mini water parks have recently opened are 'lapethos' in lapta villiage ,only 6/7 ,mins drive.[from your apartment].. the other is in the acapulco hotel which is situated close to a beach with aquasporting hire available...[jet skis etc] happy days eh ?? and not a euro in site ...!!

"Great apartment with nice facilities in good location!"
Rented this apartment for just under 3 weeks from the owner, towards the end of September 2012. My first trip to the North of Cyprus, but certainly not my last.
Arriving very late in the evening, the owner very kindly offered a pick-up from the airport, for a small charge (less than local taxis), and was very helpful and polite.
The apartment was great, just as advertised: clean, tidy, modern and comfortable with plenty of space. Air-con in all the main areas, nicely equipped kitchen, and good bathrooms.
The pool in the centre of the garden area of the apartments was lovely. Always clean, and very refreshing for a swim, anytime during the day. The apartment is very close to the coastline, and there is a great new walkway (almost complete) that allows you to walk along the cliff-side and up to a couple of nice small beaches nearby.
The location of the apartment was what we wanted, being just out of the town, but not so far as to be a pain. A car is recommended for travelling about the island, but the local small buses are useful should you not want to drive.
There are also a few good beach clubs nearby, which are great to visit for the day, and restaurants/bars all the way into town. Also, one of the things my partner and I enjoyed the most was using the Barbecue at the apartment, which we did several times during our stay.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay at a very nice apartment, with a helpful and contactable owner, and I would recommend this apartment and it's neighbour for a pleasant stay in North Cyprus.
cheers mate . you are welcome anytime ... james

"A lovely safe complex for families with children!"
This apartment is in a quiet complex off the beaten track, though still close to supermarkets and the beach. The pool is fabulous and just a few strides away! All you need for a very pleasant stay.… More

"A Great Place to Stay"
My partner and I brought my granddaughter and my godson with us on this trip and I did wonder whether there would be enough going on to keep them occupied, it was a needless worry as they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They were able to go off on their own to explore as the beach was only a stones throw away and the apartment was conveniently situated for us as well, as the local restaurants and shops were within walking distance. We hired a car for a few days to go further afield but in the main we took the local dolmus ( minibus) into Kyrenia as it was so cheap. If we chose to stay on site then we had the use of the huge swimming pool, which was floodlit at night, virtually on our doorstep and could relax in the attractive gardens. It was also nice to be able to cook a meal on the barbecue and eat outside. The views of the mountains from the apartment are amazing and it became my morning ritual to sit outside on the balcony with a cup of coffee and admire them.The apartment itself was extremely clean and very comfortably furnished, everything you could possibly need was supplied including satellite television. In fact, the whole site was very well maintained. I was also very impressed with the total cost our stay there, as having checked pricing I found Mr Lovell's the most competitive compared to other apartments in the area. I would most definitely stay there again in the future!
thank you so much for your major effort in overcoming all of the problems with trying to place a review on trip advisors web-site ..
i trust they will make it easier for future guests to add their comments ..but certsinly appreciate your review .... owner .

Arrived in Cyprus for the first time...apartment everthing as described clean, well maintained and very well equipped, added bonus of a private walled garden with bbq and sun loungers etc.Very conveniently situated, walking distance to the beach and served by an excellent bus service into kyrenia and surrounding areas. Large and very well maintained pool, together with both stunning mountain and sea views. Best of both worlds here...very peaceful if thats what you require..but nightlife only a short distance away. Thanks James for a fab time here..back next year...
thank you maria for taking the time to 'review' greatly appreciated, james

Stayed here for 3 weeks in August.
Complex was lovely, accmodation was very basic and dirty.
Poor service form owner and management company from start to finish.
Avoid at all costs, look elsewhere for other people who rent their properties out in the complex, to avoid being ripped off.
im suprised and shocked of the review from this guest. and would invite anyone to contact me to get the other side of the story ,after her substantialy chisling me down on my rental rate,knowing i was already the cheapest in the complex ,she still chose to sneak a 3rd adult in for, im told 10 days !!,, she allowed her children to track sand into all rooms and left approx 6 bin bags full of rubbish out on the patio for the cats to have fun with.my manager was furious. she screamed blue murder when she had to pay a whopping £8.00 for an extra tanker of water as the supply from the city resevoir could not keep up with their ''water use abuse''something which is frowned upon on the island, my manager found an air-con unit still running in a bedroom set at 16degrees! several hours after they had moved out ..needless to say the next bill was the highest electric bill i have ever had. i urge any owner DO NOT RENT TO THIS PERSON call me for details .like the saying goes you can never please all of the people all of the time..
