Lapta pines apartments are known as the development of n.cyprus. built on the oceanside&; of lapta it is extremely spacious by comparison to some complexs, and all apts either have roof terraces or large patios/in private gardens all with stunning coastal and mountain range views..
My apartment outside patio faces west, and each night most people will take of a beer or glass of wine whilst watching the sunset [location location location]... 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 be 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 20% deposit or £200 must be received by the owner before a booking can be secured. balance amount must be received no later than 1 month before arrival also .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-CONDITIONING is used .. could be around £25.00 a week or over ?.?DEPENDING ON HOW LOW YOU SET THE TEMPS on the remotes.[and how many bedrooms you use ]. it is strongly recomended to take a reading from the meter upon arrival and again upon departure [the meters are mounted in the entrance lobby within a wooden cabinet]...a comfortable setting is about 22/24 degrees .**the lower the setting the more it will cost **.... ELECTRIC will only be charged at the local electricity boards rate.** .and this will be deducted from your secruity deposit .
for those of you that have smart phones and tablets WI FI is now available . just top up the account .ask mehmet the manager how to do this
full insect screening on all windows has now been installed
if your apartment needs a deep/heavy clean after your departure you will be charged and extra £30-£40 out of your secruity deposit .

Myself i favour several little oceans edge cafe's one being sardunya beach restaraunt [the Start of the coastal Walkway]......and the cabin and the calamari right on the waters edge tourist strip in lapta ...wow! many adjacent places with pools that sit right over the ocean some with jettys that go out to the sea with bars attached better bring your bathing suits ?

Silver Rocks [formerly Shirley Valentines ] nice for early evening drinks sunsets and a pool with views over the ocean. also right on the waves . . 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 ...!!
