Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Great villa - close to restaurants & supermarkets (by car)
My family had a great stay at the villa and enjoyed the peaceful location. The pool, Netflix and location made for a great stay.
Amazing Villa, Beautiful location
We stayed at this lovely Villa in Lapta for 2 weeks in August and had a fantastic holiday. The villa itself was amazing, very spacious, modern and very well equipped. The pool was very large with astroturf around it making it very safe and comfortable to walk around, our 2 daughters loved spending most of the day in its warm water. The views of the mountain were great and the outside area was beautifully lit up at night. We hired a car and an airport transfer through a contact that David gave us which was very useful as on the way from the airport we stopped off at a 24 hour supermarket to get some supplies ready to start our holiday. The car was very handy for shopping and eating out in the evening, our favourite restaurant was the Silver Rocks which is one of the closest to the villa, although we also enjoyed breakfast and dining out at the Wild Duck.
The villa is very large and whether you wanted to lie in the sun or escape under the canopy over the terrace there is always somewhere to go .
We would love to go back in the near future and would highly recommend this holiday Villa, David and Karen were very accommodating from booking through to our arrival in North Cyprus, and they made us feel very welcome.
A beautiful villa, spacious and lots of room to relax & chill out
The property is well 'advertised' as the photos are reflective of how great the villa is in real life. There is lots of room inside (which is beautifully furnished and layed out) plus tons of room outside, with a really good sized pool.
Lapta is a lovely location with some great bars & restaurants very conveniently located - either within a 5-10 minute drive - or easily walkable, although you will need a torch when walking back from Sardunya beach bar (which is very fun!).
The Lapta coastal walk is very close by - 5 minutes walk - if you are a runner it is a nice 2 mile run, plus there is great countryside to run into also. Even if you want a little more pedestrian holiday Zihini's beach cafe is within a 15 minute walk and is run by the loveliest man. I think he is reflective of all the people in Northern Cyprus - they are so friendly, hospitable and welcoming.
Be aware that Lapta is in the North of Cyprus and that not all hire car company's will loan you a car because of the border control that you will need to go through to access Kyrenia and onto Lapta. Additionally, see if you can get some precise instructions from the hire company about how to access the border in Nicosia, it is not easy to find.
Overall, this is a great villa for a laid back relaxing holiday with good food, environment and local things to do. We had a fantastic week.
the villa is amazing! it is very well equipped, spacious and comfortable. owners were very helpful.
Thanks Helen we are so glad you enjoyed north Cyprus we would be pleased to have you as a guest again kind regards David and karen
Lovely spacious villa
We had a very enjoyable, relaxing week in the villa near Lapta, as I said in the review title it was a lovely, spacious, private villa. It had everything you could want, large comfortable beds, all the amenities in the kitchen, plenty of TV's if you want them, the only slight problem was the Internet didn't seem to be working. There was a lovely large clean pool, which we used every day, and a well kept garden. We ate out every evening in several different restaurants, mainly along the Lapta strip, a favourite of ours being Veni Vechi, a very nice Italian , we we could recommend.
While we were there we visited Bellapais Abbey, st Hilarion Castle, and the harbour at Kyrenia, all well worth a visit. We also took a ride up into the mountains, along a very winding road which had some spectacular views. We would recommend this villa to anyone needing a quiet relaxing holiday.
We had a wonderful holiday in this fabulous villa, and the description and photo’s don’t do this property justice – it is extremely spacious and very well appointed and had everything than we needed. Great outdoor space, and a fabulous pool, that allowed for the best use to be made of the glorious weather.
The only minor downside was the distance to the nearest shops and restaurants, [except for the Olive Press that was very welcoming and friendly], that meant that a car is essential unless you are a fan of walking, and it would have been nice to have had a sandy beach within walking distance, but you can’t have everything.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this villa to anyone, and the owners David & Karen were very willing to do anything to help their guests have an enjoyable stay, and the airport transfer by Ozy that was recommended to us was faultless.
I would certainly stay there again.
thankyou for your great review gary would agree the local buses are a 10 minute walk from the villa . sardunia beach is a 15 minute walk along the new lapta coastal walkway we are very pleased you enjoyed our villa
The closest beach is a 5 minute walk away from the villa. 10 minutes walk away, along the new Lapta Coast walk way is Sardunya Beach which is a beautiful beach with a lovely bar/restaurant offering both local and English cuisine.
Ercan Airport is the local Airport and this is located 40 minutes away. Larnaca Airport is just over one hour away.
The local village of Lapta is a 10-15 minute walk, this really shows the local Cypriot village life. The main town of Kyrenia is a 10-15 minute drive. Kyrenia has a beautiful harbour and this is surrounded by restaurants and bars offering local and English cuisine. The town also provides some great shopping.
Our villa is a 2 minute walk away from the only bowling green in North Cyprus, The Olive Press Bowling Green. A wonderful family run bowling green with great bowling and offers great food in their restaurant/bar. There is also a Ten Pin Bowling and large Amusement arcade which is a 10 minute drive away.
