“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.
“Amazing” My husband and daughter decided to take a short holiday and started looking on-line until we came across the Luxury penthouse at Akama health farm and spa. A really friendly and quick in keeping in touch owner helped us to book and in no time we were on the road heading towards the luxury resort. The place is really easy to find as it is situated at a fantastic location, of course we had very good directions from the owner as well. The resort offers easy access to Latsi and Polis the two main towns with fantastic beaches and watersports activities. And of course there is an easy access to all the small villages around Drousia. We were really excited to see how well decorated the place is, my daughter who is nine, wants to live n the penthouse, she was amazed by the stylish décor. The place has all the little kitchen utensils a housewife needs in her kitchen so we were able to prepare a small breakfast every morning ( the restaurant was offering breakfast as well but it was a bit expensive, so we prepared our own.) We also loved the Jacuzzi! A technician came to change the water after we requested and showed us how to work the buttons. So in no time we got it ready and working. This is really an amazing way to relax on your roof-garden, we used the Jacuzzi all the time, minimum 2ice daily. We loved how clean the place is and how friendly all the staff were.
There is a lovely swimming pool in the shape of Mickey which is kids friendly and my daughter was so happy playing all day in it. There are two more pools, one for really young kids and one indoor. My husband and I were happy tanning at the deck drinking our beer and freddo. The place offers great destinations for those interested to explore the area and visit some tourist destinations. For those interested to hop around the little villages, there is a rich culture and great Cypriot cuisine.
For those who want to relax and take advantage of the SPA, really good prices and excellent service.
We wish you happy holidays, book now!
“Lovely, spacious studio apartment.” This spacious studio apartment was a delight. On the outskirts of Peyia, which is a lovely, quaint village, it benefits from fabulous views of Coral Bay. The facilities within the apartment are second to none. Wi-fi is laid on along with everything you would expect from a more expensive property. There is a swimming pool two minutes from the apartment with plenty of space to sit around and enjoy the fabulous weather while cooling down with a quick dip. I can't wait for my next visit.
