From the owner

The property was completed in 2007. It sits on a third of an acre of land with landscaped gardens, containing fruit trees, with colourful flowers and shrubs all year round. The open plan villa is built and fitted to the highest possible standards with both air conditioning and central heating throughout. This makes it ideal for both summer and winter lets

Outside there is extensive terracing and a large courtyard, tiled in travertine. There is an outdoor shower and traditional turkish built barbecue. The swimming pool is 11 metres by 5 metres and has a Roman end with steps into the pool for easy access. Sunbeds and parasols are plentiful

The slightly elevated position allows uninterupted views of the Besparnak mountains to the south and views of the sea to the north. Bellapais Abbey is lit up at night and clearly visible from our terraces and balconies as is the ancient hill fortress of St Hilarian

On the shaded veranda there is a large granite dining table seating eight. Fly screens on some doors and windows allow them to be left open, creating a lovely breeze from the sea and mountains both day and night.

The garden is fully walled around the property with lighting at night along the front wall, around the inside of the pool, around the courtyard and in the veranda.

The villa features a very large lounge with open plan access to a dining area and luxury Siemens kitchen. A
large balcony on the first floor affords beautiful views to all sides of the villa. A second balcony is accessed
from the master bedroom. Marble tiles and stylish wall prints throughout, create a feeling of unashamed

Wireless internet facility is available for a small charge.

Parking space for three cars can be accommodated within the walls of the villa.

Further details indoors

The villa comprises 4 bedrooms.
Bedroom 1 first floor master bedroom superkingsize bed, en suite bathroom with bath shower and W.C.walk in wardrobe, wooden flooring in both walk in wardrobe and master bedroom, safe and balcony
Bedroom 2 first floor king size bed en suite showerroom with W.C. and large balcony.
Bedroom 3 ground floor kingsize bed, en suite showerroom with W.C. and patio doors onto poolside terrace
Bedroom 4 ground floor twin beds and guest showerroom with W.C. next door

Additional sleeping facilities can be accommodated by the hire of comfortable fold away beds at approximately £25 a week including linen and laundry.

All bedrooms have extensive built in wardrobes.

Linen, towels and beach towels are all provided.

Cleaners will do a light clean and change the bed-linen once a week, apart from long lets.

All four bathrooms have stand alone showers, WCs and wash basins. The master bathroom has an additional bath and twin basins fitted into an attractive bathroom suite with views of the mountains and sea.

There is solar paneled water heating with back up electric heating, rarely necessary.

The luxury kitchen is finished in beach wood with granite worktops and breakfast bar and Siemans appliances including cooker, hob and extractor fan, oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, hairdryer and ironing equipment.

A large electric water cooler has been permanently installed for on tap chilled and hot drinking water

There is a utility room off the kitchen with a large sink and plenty of under sink storage space. This is where we keep the highchair, travel cot and other baby equipment.

The large living room has an open marble fireplace and seating for eight with a large archway leading to the dining room. It has satelite TV and DVD player. 3 sets of patio doors lead from the Living room to the pool terrace.

The dining room has a large wooden table seating 8 people and 3 sets of patio doors leading to the courtyard and pool terrace

There are marble floors throughout the Villa apart from the wooden floor in the master bedroom and walk in wardrobe.

The property has two 3" steps into the villa and four steps down to the pool with metal hand railings. Inside the villa, on the ground floor, the floor surfaces are flat.. On the ground floor, there is a king-size bedroom with en-suite and a twin bedroom with a bathroom just outside the door. Disabled guests have commented on the ease of maneuvering around with the marble flooring and large spaces between the furniture. The ground floor is open plan with large archways to the dining room and kitchen. The pool has a Roman end with graduated steps into the water.

The villa is fully air-conditioned with separate electric fans if required. Central heating is installed, making this villa ideal for winter lets.

A local English speaking representative is available to answer any questions you may have or to offer help if needed. She will meet you at the villa shortly after your arrival to introduce herself.

Further details outdoors

The outside of the villa looks stunning with the centre piece being the 11m by 5m overflow swimming pool. It has a Roman end with steps leading into the pool for easy access for young children. The pool side facilities include plenty of outdoor furniture including sun beds and parasols.

The large landscaped gardens look beautiful all year round and are managed by a team of skilled gardeners who attend the plot up to 3 times a week.

The good sized courtyard provides impressive views up to the mountains and is an ideal place for children to play.

The covered veranda which houses the granite table is used most often for meals. The terraces around the pool ensure that there is plenty of space for large families who wish to spend most of their time by the pool.

The Turkish BBQ is a major attraction.

At night the pool, courtyard, terraces and south perimeter of the villa can all be lit up.

We can organise airport transfers from Ercan 25 minutes away and Larnaca 90 minutes away, as well as car hire

Many of our guests have commented that they love watching the antics of the barn owls whilst they sit outside on the terrace in the evening. There are two types of owl in Northern Cyprus, the other being the little owl and these also frequent Villa Joanna. I'm glad you could take advantage of our small orchard. Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review, it is much appreciated.
