Villa in Ozankoy, Kyrenia, North Cyprus, Cyprus - Quiet Location, Very Handy For Central Kyrenia, Less Than 15 Minutes Walk To The Centre Of Town
About Karen Gallagher
The owners of the villa spend any free time they have in the TRNC, fitting it in with their busy working lives back in the UK. They would love to spend even more time in the TRNC, and who knows? Perhaps permanently retire there eventually, taking on a life a lot slower and more relaxed and with a lot more sunshine ! The villa is looked after and managed by their good friends, who are English and are based locally. They are always on hand for advice on local attractions and for when any problems arise.
Why Karen Gallagher chose Ozankoy
The owners family are Cypriot and wanted to be near their existing extended family, many of whom live in the Ozankoy area. The Villa has been purpose built to their design & specification. Villa Elise strikes the perfect balance between tranquility and privacy and has easy access to beaches and other life essentials like supermarkets, pharmacies and banks. It is well positioned for access to the airport and is situated between the mountainside village of Bellapais with its historic monastery and the beautiful harbour town of Kyrenia.
What makes this Villa unique
You can drive either East or West to an amazing array of beaches, all within 10 - 30 minutes. But you will be tempted just to soak up the stunning mountain view, sat by the swimming pool early in the morning, with wonderful pine fresh air or dine alfresco on one of the many terraces but then you might wish to easy drive to a local restaurant. This property is not on an estate. At Villa Elise you have peace and privacy but can get to whatever you need in minutes.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Dated and in need of refurbishment
The rental was made very easy by karen. She arranged our pick up and car hire
. The property was advertised as fully airconditioned. There was airconditioning in the bedrooms, but only one unit in the lounge, which did not work. You had to close the windows and doors at night because you would have been eaten alive by the mosquitos., which made it very uncomfortable.
The outside seating areas were very worn, did not want to sit on any of it.
The property is very close to the main road and a road, which is a shortcut to the new roundabout, it was very noisy.
The neighbours had a problem with the pump to their pool, they turned it on in the weekends, it was extremely noisy. They were the days we went to the beach.
The hot water was also a problem, at any time there was enough for one shower in the afternoon. Finished the holiday with a cold shower as the emergency hot water heater was not working.
The water cooler sprung a leak at the back on the very first day. Karen' husband was very quick in removing it and brought us a couple of large bottles of water. But the cooler never came back. That was ok for the two of us but for a family it would have been a problem.
There were two lovely cats, they were well spoiled by us. They reminded us of our dogs.
We will not be returning there.
Clean villa close to resturants etc.
A clean well appointed villa. Lovely pool and gardens, which were well looked after.
Thank you so much, it was a pleasure having you to stay.
We’ve stayed in many different villas in North Cyprus but we liked this one so much we stayed here twice in the same year. It very clean and well maintained. The location in great too, 5 minutes from the centre of Kyrenia and very close to restaurants and 2 supermarkets. I would recommend hiring a car as that’s the best and easiest way to see the island.
We had a small problem with the swimming pool water but Karen and Terry were great and sorted it out very quickly. Overall we had two great holidays here and would thoroughly recommend this villa. I’m hoping we will be staying there at least once this year.
Had a lovely time, beautiful villa
Stayed two weeks in August with whole family, the villa is beautiful, private and in a great location. We had plenty of space for all of us, villa and private pool were spotless.Would definately stay again and highly recommend
Thank you so much for the positive comments, it is much appreciated, hope to see you again!!
superb central location!!!!
beautifully equipped villa, with full wifi, a must for the kids. large garden, landscaped and well kept. large pool, situated well with easy access to supermarkets and restaurants. As we had visited the island before we didn't want a hire car for the entire time, staying here we were able to have a week around the pool and still walk to restaurants and supermarkets. highly recommend.
Fantastic Villa in excellent location
The Villa was a fabulous base to enjoy the sites or Northern Cyprus with Kyrenia being 5mins away! It was clean/ spacious well equipped and maintained with a wonderful pool and out door area to relax in privacy. Between the property owners and property manager who were very helpful and so friendly we were well looked after, customer service and communications were excellent. Good choice of restaurants near by & all so reasonably priced. We had the most wonderful holiday and planning to go back in October we loved it so much. Highly recommend this villa for value for money/ location for a very relaxing easy holiday.
Several beaches are within a 10 minute drive. ShaynaBeach with bar and lively open air restaurant. Diana Beach with a sandy beach and water sports. Alagadi Beach with long stretches of sand, turtle watching and safe swimming make it a perfect family location.
