Property description

Habibi House has beautiful gardens and a lovely pool. It was built in 2005 and stands at the eastern edge of the character-full Turkish Cypriot village of Catalkoy. Accommodation for eight/nine people is spacious and light and the house has been tastefully, yet comfortably furnished. All the furnishings are co-ordinated and give the house an easy, relaxed atmosphere and elegance. Every room has windows on two sides with one leading to either a balcony or terrace in nearly every case. Floors are tiled throughout. The sitting room has comfortable sofas and opens out onto a dining terrace overlooking the pool. There is a large landscaped garden area. The house is ideal for a family or two to relax by the pool, enjoy the local surroundings or to explore the area, with Girne (Kyrenia) for night life and the famous cultural monastery village of Bellapais nearby, crusader castles in the mountains and the many quiet little bays along the coast for fishing, bathing, boating and diving. Catalkoy village boasts three excellent restaurants within walking distance from the house and there are many more bars and eating houses if you decide to take a five minute drive.


Flights, taxis and car hire: Flights are available into Ercan airport in the North and Larnaca airport in the South. Ercan is about 20 miles away and Larnaca about 50 miles. If you choose to fly into Larnaca or Ercan, a taxi can easily be arranged on line to bring you to Northern Cyprus. We can recommend a good car hire company also.

More than 80 flights per week arrive at North Cyprus airport Ercan during the summer. There are 15 flights from three UK airports ; Stansted, Gatwick and Heathrow. Most of them arrive in the evening.

Habibi House is situated on the edge of the village of Catalkoy. It offers uninterrupted views of the mountains to the south and views to the sea to the north. It is very private and not overlooked by any other property, being tucked away. It overlooks and ancient olive grove just next to the pool.

In Catalkoy village there are three restaurants and bars and local facilities such as small shops. A few miles away is the famous town of Kyrenia (Girne in Turkish).

There are many supermarkets within 5 minutes of the house, also hairdressers, chemists, vegetable market, off license, ATMs and banks. So getting your provisions for the house is very easy.

A must do is to drive the stunning road which takes you to the Panhandle and the Karpaz region which is a protected nature reserve. This is a lovely trip which you can do in a day. There are lots of little restaurants and guest houses in and around Dipkarpaz which are worth trying. Our personal favorite is Oasis at Ayios Phylon, have a look at it on the internet.

There is a local beach 5 minutes drive away at Catalkoy and other beaches further along the coast within easy reach. The house is well-positioned to explore the north and north east sides of the island generally. Google Earth co-ordinates are 35 19'10'N, 33 23'37'E.

Other Activities: Nature area on Panhandle (or Karpaz). Turtle beach at Alagadi, only 10 minutes from Habibi House, is famous as a nesting place for both Loggerhead and Greenback Turtles. There is a summer research center in the village and you can get involved in baby turtle releases and also guided night watches when the turtles come to lay their eggs.

Golf: There is a very good Golf course, The Korineum Golf and Country Club at Esentepe, which is only 15 minutes drive from Habibi House.

Boat day trips from Kyrenia Harbour are also very popular. There are many different gullets to chose from, some run fishing trips and some do day trips along the north coast.

All of North Cyprus is very beautiful indeed. It is worth coming in the Springtime too as the Island has an abundance of fabulous flora, including many species of orchid.

There are some wonderful walks in the mountains which boast three Crusader Castles, St Hillarion, Buffavento, and Kantara, all of which are worth a visit.
