Further details outdoors:
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 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 25% deposit must be received by the owner before a booking can be secured. balance amount must be received no later than 1 month before arrival .a £200 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-CONDITION is used .. could be around £25.00 a week or over ?.?. it is strongly recomended to take a reading from the meter upon arrival and again upon departure ...** electric will only be charged at he local electricity boards rate.** .
A welcome pack is suppied for a nominal charge ask about welcome pack + ...Long term lets are negotiable [good rates over 4 weeks] and one should contact the owner direct .james on +44 (0) 208 773 1994 Mob +44 (0) 7971 339854 email using the form below cyp. mob = 0090 533 866 5249

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 ?
The Lapta / Lapta Oceanside area
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 ...!!

1. fly directly into ercan [pronouced erchan] via Stantead airport. Choose either Pegasus airlines or atlas jet or turkish.airlines from heathrow,a cab to lapta will be £30-£35. this can be aranged for you .
2. fly into Larnaca in the south with BA ,cyprus airlines or aegean or check all tour operaters[about 8] for varying prices eg . monarch,, , thomsons, thomas cooke, easyjet and many others. a cab to ferry you across the greek/tukish border will charge about £50-£55 . great fun! we can arrange.....pick and car hire .
3. for the slightly more adventurous , get an easy jet flight or pegasus into istanbul[ prices fluctuate]] and maybe stay a couple of nights in taxsim?[istanbul] A daily connection from the same airport[sabana gochen] , with pegasus airline .will fly you directly into Ercan. About $35,!! well worth the extra time spent. And not much more money to try this method.

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

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.
