There are 8 sunbeds, mattresses and umbrellas for use around the pool.

A little oasis - pretty garden and splendid pool

  • 4 of 5

The villa is perfect if you prefer a bit of privacy away from the built up centre of Girne. Situated in Alsanscak a 15 minute drive away, it is relatively secluded down a side road with a breath taking view of the magnificent mountains from the back garden and pool area. There are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance and if you feel like splashing out there is a very smart restaurant in an hotel a few minutes walk away. There is also a good supermarket very close by with a wide range of produce and essentials.

The villa is spacious and simply furnished and equipped with all you might need - dishwasher, washing machine etc - and any queries we had were quickly addressed by the villa manager a telephone call away. The big attraction is the pool which is a good depth and larger than normal with gardens to either side full of interesting trees and plants including citrus and hedges of lavender that gave off a lovely scent in the evening. There are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas and also a barbecue area.

The only negative is that the double beds are rather hard but a memory foam topper would be an easy solution. There is a comprehensive guide to the villa provided in advance.

Beautiful Villa, Amazing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday in Kyrenia was amazing. We had so many plans on what we would do whilst we were there, but to be honest we did not get time to do half of them, as we struggled to pull ourselves away from around Villa Vanessa's pool side.

Villa Vanessa is a beautiful villa. It's a nice large size, with a homely, yet holiday feel. The pool is lovely and complimented by the large patio pool side and views of the mountains. We didn't really use the kitchen, other than making coffee and toast, however if we had wanted to we could of quite happily cooked a full roast dinner, as the kitchen is not only large in size, but also fully equipped. We really enjoyed relaxing in the sun on the very comfortable sun loungers and having evening drinks on the patio. We didn't get time to use the new built bbq, but would really have liked to have had the time to.

If like us you like to go out for a meal in the evening, there are plenty of places to eat. Just exploring the local village, alsencak, we found the best kebab restaurant in the world and the local meze is definitely an experience worth having, although make sure you starve your self all day.

Once we managed to pull our selves away from the pool we did manage to go out and we found some lovely beaches. Escape beach is very beautiful and imported sand means that it is very shallow for quite some distance. A trip to the Abby is a must and dinning in their restaurant was amazing, the food and service was great and the views are to die for. There are many other lovely places to visit, many of which you will find in the gust book (kept at Villa Vanessa).

We decided to leave our children at home for this holiday, as we thought that north Cyprus really was not a place for children and although it was a fantastic adult holiday, we will be returning with our three children (6, 13, 16) as there was also lots that they could do to.

Thank you so much to the owners for the opportunity to stay in such a lovely villa and have such an amazing holiday. We look forward to booking again for next year!

sheer bliss

  • 5 of 5

Well what can anyone say but the most perfect holiday anyone could want. From perfect company to the most beautiful place which offered views of the mountains and the sea over the road, and to stay in a villa which was truly home from home.

The views were breath taking, and to wake up in the morning and look out of your bedroom to mountains with little villages scattered amongst them. The peaceful surroundings had hidden gems from the little village behind to the wonderful resturaunts in walking distance.

The villa had everthing to offer your own home would have, pure comfort and well supplied in everything, then to step outside and have your own private pool with sunbeds in abundance surrounded by beautful flowers and trees not to mention the bar-b-que.

Just take a car and explore the historic places with views to think you were dreaming it. I truly loved this place and felt comfortable and at home, I only wish I was there right now. It really was sheer bliss thankyou.

The Excellent Villa Vanessa

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful holiday at Villa Vanessa. The Villa is in a very good location, there are numerous places to eat in the area, plenty of supermarkets, shops, banks, a pharmacy, ice cream parlours, you name it, its all here. A hire car is recommended, there are lots of beaches to visit and Kyrenia is a short 15 min drive away. The Villa is a very spacious, clean and tidy, the kitchen is large and has everything you require, the lounge is comfy with plenty of room.Then there are four very good sized bedrooms, one with en suite and one other bathroom. The pool was really big with lots of room round it. There are plenty of and loungers and parasols, there is large table and big Parasol. We all loved the pool, the size of it will surprise you if you stay at the Villa. I would recommend this Villa to anyone. North Cyprus is a must for Sun lovers, the restaurants are plentiful and there are some really nice ones. The North has plenty of History if you want to look at castles, ruins etc. There is a lovely little hotel just a minutes walk up the road and we spent a few evenings there for a meal, drinks and the kids got to use the wifi for their toys! The Food was excellent and the staff made you very welcome indeed. Its called "The almond hotel". We would definitely visit the Villa again, it is a great place. Thanks to the owners who were very helpful throughout booking, also the agents in North Cyprus were really friendly and helpful, they would jump through hoops for you.

The nearest beach is 15 minutes walk away. Escape beach which is very popular is a 2/3 minute drive away. There are many beautiful beaches available on the drive to Kyrenia. East of Kyrenia the beaches are mostly free, remote and less populated.


The Villa is 40 mins from Ecran airport. We can arrange transfers for you the cost is approx £40 each way. We can also arrange transfers from Larnaca. A hire car is recommended to fully explore the island. Public transport is cheap and easy to use.


10 minutes walk into the centre of Alsancak. A 15 minute drive to Kyrenia, and a 30 minute drive to Nicosia. Escape beach is a 2-3 minute drive. The local supermarket is a 3 minute walk.

Further Details:

Climate: North Cyprus has over 300 days of sunshine a year. The temperatures can reach into the 70s well into December and as early as February. April and May are as hot as our British summers. June, July and August are the hottest months while September and October are still warm about 80 degrees, but with cooler evenings.
