About the owner: I have run holiday lets in Cornwall for several years. I also enjoy staying abroad in rented properties rather than hotels and and so know what is needed to make a comfortable home from home. I aim to provide everything you need to make your stay a comfortable one.
Why the Owner Chose Catalkoy: The area is great for walking, it is close enough to the town of Kyrenia for those who want shops and nightlife, but in a peaceful location, with sea views, which is what I think most holiday makers need. It's a beautiful site with well maintained gardens and a pool and a gym.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: 2 pools, gym, easy walk to a beach (pebbly) but easy drive to lovely unspoilt sandy beaches. Golf course and water park nearby for the sporty. Bar/restaurant at the entrance so no need to drive for an evening drink or meal. Lie in bed and look out at the sea. Bliss!
