“Peace and tranquility from sunrise to beautiful sunsets” I trust if you are reading this review you have already decided on Northern Cyprus as you are aware of the friendly people, guaranteed sunshine, warm seas, great scenery, beautiful beaches, super food, cheap prices etc etc. I'll stop there because you know that but you may not know of these two studios owned by Jacqui and Ian that stand in the grounds of their lovely garden, in a quiet location on the edge of a ravine between Bellapais and Ozonkoy.
Whether you are enjoying a drink under the shade on the decking or cooling off in the pool you can enjoy views of Bellapais Abbey up to the left, St. Hilarion Castle straight ahead or Kyrenia Harbour down to the right. All are lit up on a night making this a great place to sit and relax after enjoying a lovely evening meal at one of the numerous local restaurants/bars that offer a range of varied cuisines. Jacqui and Ian can provide you with information to assist you to narrow down your options if needed.
They also put us in touch with a very reasonable car hire company that also offer airport transfers if preferred. This property is within a few minutes of many places of interest, amenities and beaches but also far enough away to maintain an air of quiet seclusion, which is why we decided on a car. However the taxis are cheap and we found that many of the restaurants will also offer you a lift back if required, as part of the service.
The two studios are very comfortable, well furnished and spotless on arrival. We have holidayed for the last two years in the "Garden Studio" which has a bit more shade and remains a little cooler. This area is also patrolled by "Ralph the Ravenous" a tortoise who can eat as much salad as you can spare and would give Usain Bolt and run for his money if chopped up cucumber is the prize rather than a gold medal. The "Terrace Studio" affords the views previously mentioned and all day sun, with the pool and studio sun loungers just outside.
After a stay here you feel totally chilled out thanks to the quiet serenity, beautiful surroundings and lovely hosts. We won't be leaving it too much longer before we book again for next year as this place is too nice to remain a secret for ever and looking at the bookings its possibly lost secret status already.
“Get away from it all” This studio property has everything you need to get away from the pressures of everyday life. The rooftop is ideal for catching the sun while reading. We watch out for the weekly milk and vegetable vans which will stop if you need something. It is within a beautiful small village with roads leading in all directions ideal for walks or drives to neighbouring villages.
“Lovely complex and apartment” Apartment was clean, easy to get from airport but do need a car ideally. We did hire a car. Complex is well maintained and clean. Recommend the grande restaurant in Peyia village, value for money. Went to Laura Beach hotel to use water slides, value for money than main water park. Sandy Beach lovely. All in all we had a lovely holiday and can’t wait to return. Michael very helpful with any queries and let us stay on departure day longer in apartment which was very kind.
