Villa with Large Pool

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Nov-2016
Villa in Yenibogazici, Nr. Salamis, Cyprus - New Villa in 2005 with Sea and Mountain Views

The luxury villa is in a quiet but convenient select development in Yenibogazici near Salamis. The local sandy beaches, part of Famagusta Bay are accessed a short distance away along the coast by car where the Local Authority have created car parking and landscaped areas. Throughout the whole year it is possible to experience the beauty of this Mediterranean country. In this idyllic location it is possible for one to enjoy local life within the beautiful tranquil surroundings. The area around Salamis is rich in culture with the Salamis Ruins being a very popular tourist attraction situated a few minutes drive from the villa. Whilst most tourists flock to Kyrenia with its picture postcard harbour the area has seen considerable development in recent years whilst Famagusta and Salamis offers a much quieter relaxed environment.

About the Owner

The villa is owned by Colin and Ann - We live in North Yorkshire, and are in our early 50's. We have two children, Rebecca, who is currently a Teaching Assistant in York; and Dominic, who has just attained a music degree at University of Sussex in Brighton. We are looking forward to the time when we can finish working and spend more time in our villa in North Cyprus.

Beautiful villa, beautiful holiday

  • 5 of 5

I came with a group of 6 people and overall our stay at the turtles villa was delightful, very spacious and nicely decorated, air con in all bedrooms was a god send as the outside temperature was in its 30's. Huge pool outside of the villa was perfect for relaxing on the days you cant be bothered to go to the beach!! Also the fruit trees in the garden are a lovely touch :) booking with Colin was swift and easy, will definitely be booking again!

Superb Villa with Fantastic Pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything you needed, home from home but with the bonus of fantastic weather! Spacious, clean and well equipped, superb pool, very large and immaculately maintained. Although technically shared, there was direct access from the villa's garden and despite using it extensively we always had it to ourselves. A car is probably needed as stated in the advert, Famagusta and Bogaz with shops, bars, beaches and restaurants are just a short drive. (There are also couple of good local bars/restaurants within walking distance) We found that having the car encouraged us to get out and explore - some great beaches, ancient sites, excellent restaurants with delicious food and interesting history to discover! Overall a brilliant time, will be definitely be back.

Turtles!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very inviting and Sarah the manager was amazing and very helpful. I will say though... Initial arrival we had a small flying ant situation and then some tiny ants in the kitchen... Not a big deal though. I bought a couple ant traps and Sarah came with some insect killer to help fix the situation.

The furnishings are a bit done and dated... But the space is ample and as long as you make sure you have enough water all runs smoothly. Fairly close to Famagusta about 15 min with a car. About an 1hr 15 min to Girne. An hour to Lefkoşa. As for easy beach access? Not quite what I was hoping for... There is no easy walking to the beach or pedestrian walkways over the highway. If you have a bicycle maybe. But a car is necessary. However if you can't get to the beach.... The pool is a gem.... Salt water heaven that I didn't get to utilize enough... Great travel agency just up the street within walking distance... so if you need a rental car or something he can help you out... Asilsoy Turizm. His name is Kemal. Speaks some English and super helpful. I also took it upon myself and left some local tourism brochures in the table by the front door so the next visitors have something to look at to help decide what they want to do with their day ;) After my experience there I would gladly rent from Colin again! I'm looking forward to it now that I know a bit more about the area since we were there for 44 days. Can't wait to come back again! Thank you Colin, Ann and Sarah!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review our property. We would like to comment on a few points raised by you. Firstly, as regards the ants, we have never had a "flying ant" problem at the villa before, and as soon as you mentioned this to us we took measures to deal with this through our caretaker on the island and hopefully you felt that we quickly resolved this issue. As regards the furnishings, the property was painted inside and out last year and in March 2017 when we are out we will be replacing both bed settees and the TV which are the "old" items to which I believe you refer. Not sure about the issue regarding beach access, as having looked at our property profile, we do say that the beaches are a short car journey away. In terms of brochures, when we left the villa last (September 2015) there were lots of brochures in a unit by the TV and therefore not sure why these are not still at the villa. Equally there is a "comments" book with suggestions of local venues to enjoy, eat & drink during your stay. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back to the villa in the future. Regards Colin & Ann

Location

From the Owner

We went out to North Cyprus many years ago, and fell in love with it straight away. The people are so friendly, good food, great beaches near the villa and along the Karpas Peninsula that have to be seen to be believed and a great climate - it was a very memorable holiday. After returning from our first trip we promised ourselves two things, firstly that we would be back soon, and secondly if we ever had the money then we would buy a villa on the island. By good fortune we have done both!!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Ercan Airport at 34 Miles Nearest Barpub : Ambelia Restaurant & Bar at 450 Metres Nearest Ferry : Famagusta Port at 11 Miles Nearest Golf : Esentepe at 32 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Ambelia Restaurant & Bar at 450 Metres Nearest Ski : Troodos Mountains at 89 Miles Nearest Beach : Famagusta Bay at 2 Miles Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

This area of North Cyprus boasts the best beaches in the entire island including Famagusta Bay just north of Famagusta famed for the ability to swim and see loggerhead turtles. A short drive from the villa and you can be on a quiet sandy beach, or if you take a slightly longer drive towards Bogaz there are also numerous free sandy beaches.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Ercan, but an alternative option is to use the airports in South Cyprus and cross into North Cyprus. Numerous operators in the North & South can arrange car hire. The service will include the vehicle being delivered to the airport and left at the airport on departure. As an alternative the taxi is moderately priced.

Further Details:

The local Salamis Ruins are a highly popular attraction easily accessible by car and there are a variety of local walks, which enable you to explore the many historical castles, with Kantara Castle in particular being in close proximity to the villa. The island has a rich tapestry of natural beauty including the wild flowers which are particularly colourful, as are the pine clad Besparmak mountains. The wild flowers and herbs are at their best in the winter and spring months.

The approximate temperatures in winter (November to March) can reach 22°C. Central heating is provided throughout the house for use as required. From March to May temperatures can reach 27°C and in the summer months (June to October) temperatures can reach an average high of around 35-40°C. The villa benefits from its coastal location and associated sea breeze.

Mains water is safe to drink, although bottled water is inexpensive.

Facilities

From the Owner

Some people prefer the area around Kyrenia, which has been a much stronger area of tourism development in recent years. For ourselves, we prefer the Famagusta/Salamis area, as it is more peaceful, whilst still having plenty to do, as Famagusta is near enough for shopping, whilst Bogaz in the opposite direction is a beautiful small fishing village. Beaches are abundant and of a quality you struggle to find elsewhere.
