Amazing villa, we didn't want to leave!
We (4 adults, 2 children aged 13 and 10) have just returned from this stunning villa. We've had a lovely holiday and had everything that we needed within the villa to ensure a comfortable stay. The owners have gone above and beyond in thinking what is required when renting a villa, it was extremely clean, well maintained and equipt for all our needs.
We all enjoyed the pool (which is the biggest I have come across in a rental villa) and well-kept grounds, lazing in the hammock under the lemon trees in the garden, bliss! The views of the stunning mountains are not done justice in the photos, they are a beautiful backdrop to this lovely property, we didn't want to leave! The villa is quiet and not overlooked by neighbours. The owner's family take great pride in their property, they were on hand if we needed them and made unobtrusive visits to ensure everything was ok. The basket of fresh figs that we were given by them were delicious, thank you!
I would recommended hiring a car as the local restaurants are 5 minutes away (by car) and the villa is uphill from the coast. We ventured into Kyrenia a few times for dinner but found the local restaurants good, if not better, so there's ample choice for meals nearby if you don't want to travel too far.
Thank you Bora (and family) for letting us stay in your beautiful home, we will recommend it to any friends or family who are looking for somewhere to stay in Northern Cyprus and hope to return again in the future. …

Spacious villa with private pool stunning mountain and sea views
Mountain Song visit
Very enjoyable visit, the kids and ourselves really enjoyed the pool and the visits to escape and golden bay beaches. Villa is very well equipped, any issues were dealt with by the agents, Pete and Sylvi. As it is high up in the mountains, it is very quiet and has stunning views. Only minor issue was the taxi driver not knowing where it was on arrival, it is secluded, but we eventually got there, oscar car rental sent a better driver on the way back. As it is up in the mountains and it was time for trees to be cut back near electricity pylons we did lose electricity for a few hours. We visited Karmi village which is even higher up in the mountains. Overall a very good holiday and it was nice to compare the north and south parts of Cyprus. Eating out is cheaper, Lemar supermarket has a good selection and some groceries are cheaper but prices are fairly equivalent to UK. Nicosia was easy to drive to and we visited the bazaars for shopping. …
