Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our fifth holiday in North Cyprus four of them in villas in Catalkoy and Ozankoy all of a very high standard, but we all agreed that Turtle Villa beat them all hands down. My daughter loved the overflow pool, my preference was the views from the rooms. It was just what we all wanted. We hope to rent from you in the future and we will be recommending Turtle Villa to our friends. Gordon R, Scotland (July 2008).

We had a wonderful week at your beautiful villa! What lovely surroundings and quiet location. Thank you! Helena, Petrus & family, Sweden (July 2008).

Thank you so much for letting us stay at Turtle Villa. It was perfect in every way. The location was stunning and Kemal and his office were very efficient so everything went smoothly. Heather P, Cambs (June 2009).

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your Villa,it was by far the best we

have stayed in.We were over the moon when we first saw it,and it was

all we hoped for and more. John L, Birkenhead (Sept 2012)

Turtle Villa is a beautiful property with stunning views front and back .

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa. Clean, spacious and well equipped. The pool was stunning and had enough of a shallow end for our 4 year old daughter to enjoy. Loads of spots to sit outside, and plenty of seating options. The views were amazing, sea to the front and mountains to the rear. It's on a lovely quiet road just a couple of minutes by car from all the supermarkets and restaurants on the main coast road, right in between the villages of Catalkoy and Ozankoy. The village and monastery of Bellapais are only 5-10 mins away by car and there are a few good beaches within a 15-20 mins drive. I'd definitely stay in this area again as the nearer you get to Kyrenia, the busier and noisier it gets. The agents (Karapasha) were so helpful and made sure everything went smoothly for us. We will be back!

I would certainly recommend Turlte Villa to my friends and family and my only hope is we can return too!

This villa is of great standard. It's well equipped with plenty of room and a smashing pool area. The location is good, but you will need a car. We did however manage to walk one night to Eminem, which is a lovely turkish restaurant.just be aware of the local dogs on route as they can be a bit vocal.

A Little bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a stunning place Turtle Villa is. Beautiful and well equipped inside, gorgeous pool and garden, stunning views and probably the best location on the island. Easy access to supermarkets, restaurants and the town of Kyrenia. We booked our car and transfer via Michael and everything was perfect.

Thank you so much, we will be coming back.

Probably the best Villa we have ever hired. Set in a lovely quiet and peaceful location, yet not too far from local villages, shops etc.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

Great villa in a perfect location.

The house was well equipped with everything you would need.

Michael left a welcome pack for us which was much appreciated as we arrived in the early hours of the morning.

The pool is large and it has a pool house which was wonderful for shade and housed a shower and toilet (no need to return to the house) which would be great if you have children.

We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely return on a future visit.

Car: recommended


Our local beach, Catalkoy beach, is only 5 minutes away by car. It is a sheltered sandy cove with bar, loungers and parasols for hire and diving board into the sea. It is very good for snorkelling. The Acapulco complex has watersports facilities and is only 10 minutes drive. The Turtle Beach with its famous turtle preservation project is 15 minutes east of Catalkoy and is well worth a visit, especially if you have children. Hatching season of the sea-turtles is from mid-May until mid-October.


Turkish Airlines and Pegasus fly to Ercan Airport in Northern Cyprus. These flights touch down in Turkey for approx 40 minutes. The villa is a 45 min drive away from Ercan.

Various Airlines (British Airways, Easyjet, Monarch, Thomas Cook and various airlines from many regional airports) fly to Larnaca in the South. The villa is a 90 min drive away from Larnaca.

Through our local agent, we can arrange transfer by taxi from either airport and car hire.


The villa is located on a quiet back road between the villages of Catalkoy (1 mile away) and Ozankoy (1.5 miles away). It is easy to walk to either village along a quiet 'country' road. Both villages have small shops and restaurants. Ozankoy is the larger village and has a number of other shops including a mini-market, butchers, bookshop and hairdressers. There are a number of large supermarkets within 3 miles of the villa. The main town of Kyrenia, with its picturesque harbour is 5 miles away.

Further Details:

Car hire is recommended in order to explore the north of the island with its many and varied sites of interest as well as the stunning scenery.
