About Ken and Margaret Stevens

In 2002 we fell in love with an olive grove just above the village of Ozankoy and we knew this was the parcel of land we wanted on which to build our dream villa. The villa was designed by us with the help of an architect relative and after sorting out various permissions the building took shape in 2004 and our first rental was in April 2005.

We are a retired couple who regularly visit the villa and are always looking at ways to improve the standard and comfort for our guests. We guarantee we will do our best to ensure you have a fantastic holiday in this lovely part of North Cyprus.

Ken and Margaret Stevens purchased this villa in 2002

Why Ken and Margaret Stevens chose Ozankoy

Designed and built by us we naturally feel we have a villa in which we can be proud. The local builder who built the villa for us still maintains the property for us and we now count him as a good friend we can rely on.

What makes this villa unique

A spacious villa set in a quiet and secluded area with sea and mountain views yet only a short drive to all the amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

‘What a wonderful time we had. I just loved every minute of it. Your villa is truly fantastic. As soon as I arrived I thought wow! We felt so at ease and comfortable there, we will treasure last week for a long time to come. It has certainly been one of the most enjoyable holidays I have ever had. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your villa to any of my friends’ - C.C.



‘We have had a fabulous time at your villa. Everything was perfect, the villa, the grounds, the pool and the seclusion but with local access to restaurants. The weather was perfect every day’ - L

Thank you for letting us stay at your fabulous villa. We have stayed in many villas in the last few years but yours beats them all. The airport transfers and car hire were spot on and your cleaner came to visit us as promised to see if everything was ok. We would love to come back to the villa again and would recommend it to our friends. Once again thank you for everything -we hope to be in contact soon.

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at North Star Villa for 2 weeks and enjoyed a fabulous holiday from start to finish.

The villa was immaculate and a much appreciated welcome pack was there for when we arrived including all the essentials plus wine and beer...so nice after our flight.

The villa had everything we needed to fulfill a good holiday. There was more than enough equipment, BBQ tools which we made use of. Comfortable beds with mosquito nets around so no nasty bites although we only saw the occasional mosquito unlike other villas we have stayed in.

The highlight of the holiday was the outdoor areas, beautiful landscaped gardens which were well maintained. Plenty of areas for sun and shade, an abundance of comfortable sunbeds, tables and umbrellas. The pool we are missing already, clean, warm a good size and so nice to be able to swim before breakfast. A few drinks on the terrace watching the sunset and stunning views prior to an evening meal...bliss.

The property manager Karen was friendly and unobtrusive and available if needed offering good advice.

Karapasha car hire arranged by Ken...good service with a smile our car awaiting at Ercan and taxi return back to Ercan on time and efficient.

We dined at a number of restaurants including Efendis, Erols, Rafters, Bella Mood and Bellapais Gardens. All excellent value, good food and service. Great atmosphere in Rafters on the tribute nights.

In summary this was our 5th holiday to TRNC and after our experience at North Star Villa have booked again for next year and have already made enquiries for 2019. We left feeling totally relaxed after a good holiday and looking forward to next year.

Ken and Margaret your villa met and exceeded our expectations!

Would we recommend the villa...absolutely.

A beautiful villa in a beautiful spot, just perfec

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked North Star Villa the owner Ken couldn't have been more helpful, booking our transfers from Larnaca Airport and arranging that hire care were already at the villa ready for us on arrival.

The villa is gorgeous, spotlessly clean with everything available, plenty of crockery and cutlery a very well equipt kitchen with lots of great places to sit and eat or have a drink. The bedrooms are great with very comfortable beds and lovely linen. There is lots of wardrobe space and plenty of hangers which for us ladies which is great.

The outdoor space is just perfect a wonderful swimming pool with plenty of chairs, sun beds and umbrellas. There is a large table and chairs where you can sit and have a glass of wine in the evening, just perfect.

The property manager was available if there were any problems, and dropped in to make sure everything was ok, gave us some great restaurants to visit, a very helpful lady.

We had the most enjoyable holiday, and will definitely be returning to North Star Villa, we have rented quite a few villas over the years, but this one is top of the list. Thank you!

Absolutely outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the gates of North Star villa we knew we had made the right choice. The landscaped gardens are so beautiful and well maintained with many sitting areas with tables, chairs, umbrellas and plenty of sunbeds to relax and listen to the sounds of nature. It was blissful just to wake up in the mornings and sit outside in one of the many pretty areas around the garden.

The pool is a wonderful centerpiece and so inviting, I cannot wait for a chance to return and swim in it. Next to the pool is a built-in barbecue where we had many enjoyable meals not wanting to leave the villa even to explore the surrounding area. That’s for the next time! The terrace has a beautiful sea view and spectacular mountain views where we spent many a late afternoon just sitting there watching the sun go down.

The inside of the villa was immaculately clean and a welcome pack was waiting for us. The villa managers are friendly, helpful and very discreet not wishing to impose unless needed.

The villa is equipped with everything you could need for a perfect holiday, including satellite tv (should you be able to tear yourself away from the garden and pool) and very reliable wi-fi.

The villa is unique in its design with such a spacious garden with lemon, orange, fig and olive trees, not to mention all the beautiful flowers. It is in an excellent location in Ozankoy with several large supermarkets just a short drive away and restaurants within easy reach. The owner is extremely helpful and provided us with excellent information and responded quickly and efficiently to emails. I will certainly recommend North Star villa to my family and friends (in fact I already have) and cannot wait until I can return.

Reassuringly excellent

  • 5 of 5

We have visited North Star many times over the last few years. The villa consistently delivers a relaxing oasis from the year round stresses and strains. On this occasion we took our two children and their spouses. We also had another couple visit for a few days in the middle of the fortnight. The villa is large enough to absorb eight people, there were enough shaded areas with tables and chairs to ensure that we did not feel claustrophobic but also big enough spaces for us to eat together and play games. We have always appreciated the fact that the decor and facilities are constantly being updated. There is local English speaking support who are only a phone call away which adds to peace of mind. The large pool has recently been enhanced and is a firm favourite with us all. The garden is maturing and I always look forward to seeing what is in flower and which fruit are ripe enough to eat.

Second visit! Breathtaking and Peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We took a further four Norwegian friends who were speechless at the beautiful villa and location. It is super to be able to walk to local restaurants .Our favourite beach was Shayna with it's top class restaurant . The large pool was the centre of attraction and was used every day BEFORE and after breakfast! We shall return!

Location

Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

There are several small beaches just a short drive away. Acalpulco beach is approx 10mins drive away. It is a beautiful sandy beach owned by the holiday complex who make an entrance charge for their facilities. A little further on is Turtle beach; an unspoilt sandy beach with only a small restaurant offering facilities. West of Kyrenia are numerous beaches from which to choose-most make a small entrance charge for sunbeds etc. On the Karpaz in the east are stunning beaches, mostly deserted.

Travel:

Ercan airport in the north is approx 40 minutes drive away. Transfers available with car hire.

Larnaca airport in the south is approx 90 minutes away. Transfers arranged for a small charge with car hire.

To make the most of a holiday in North Cyprus we believe that car hire is essential.

Distances:

The villa is on the outskirts of Kyrenia (Girne in Turkish) with its shops, famous venetian harbour and numerous restaurants.

Nicosia (Lefkosa in Turkish) is just under 30 minutes drive away with plentiful shops and historical sites of interest.

Further Details:

North Cyprus is about exploring its many attractions and therefore car hire is considered essential.

If you enjoy eating out, there is an abundance of restaurants of all styles and prices to suit all tastes and budgets.

For further info please visit our website or telephone the owners who will be delighted to help you with your holiday arrangements.
