The outdoor spaces are private and secluded, providing an intimate setting for total relaxation. Inside the villa is airy and spacious, furnished in a calm, contemporary style, with high quality furnishings. Bedrooms and lounge are air-conditioned, and have fly screens. There's wifi throughout, powered by a 20MB internet connection, and the Smart TV provides an excellent range of viewing including catch-up TV, sport and movies.

About The Owner

We're a semi-retired professional couple, and in 2005 we found this fantastic seafront location. That started an exciting journey to create the lovely holiday home that you see here. We've always enjoyed a high standard of accommodation so we spent a long time selecting the right designs and furnishings to ensure the best in comfort and relaxation; now we spend much of the year living nearby so we can make the most of this beautiful property and ensure that everything is kept in tip-top condition for our guests. Each year we add something new in order to make the holiday experience more comfortable for you.

*** See our personal website (themorlaisvilla.com) which has lots of extra photos and information; you can also find and 'Like' our Facebook page for The Morlais Villa, which is updated regularly with ideas of things to do and information about what's going on locally, as well as updates and new photos of the villa ***

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Kyrenia Region

Without doubt you will be impressed by the spectacularly beautiful coastline and peaceful tranquility that this region offers, as well as the old-fashioned values which prevail. Whether you're looking for a relaxing holiday by the pool or an action-packed adventure we feel sure you won’t be disappointed (see some of the fantastic comments from our previous guests). Unlike many properties which claim to be seafront, our villa truly has that premium cliff top location, entirely secluded from neighbours and totally peaceful. It's well away from the hustle and bustle, yet has local amenities nearby, and is still within easy reach of Kyrenia with its iconic harbour, lively bars, restaurants and shopping.

What makes this villa unique

We have many years’ experience of renting holiday villas to guests, having previously owned villas in the Algarve. We use a highly reputable car hire company for all your airport transfers and rental, and work hard to ensure that everything is freshly prepared for your arrival, no matter what time of day or night. We also provide unobtrusive support during your stay to ensure you have everything you need for that perfect relaxing holiday. Try our friendly and efficient booking service - we are always happy to answer any question (no matter how small) about the facilities at our villa or about holidaying in Northern Cyprus, to help you make the most of your time away. We look forward to speaking with you soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Your villa is lovely, pure tranquility, it’s one of the nicest we have rented. Equipped with everything you could possibly need."

We have visited North Cyprus for 10 years and can honestly say this is the best villa we have stayed in. The location is perfect, and on top of this Rose offers first class service, she will arrange everything for you. Peace & quiet, fantastic views, your own perfect pool, top quality home comforts - we stayed for 3 weeks and were disappointed to discover it was already booked for next year."

"We would return tomorrow if possible and would certainly recommend not just the villa but the whole package you offer. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done to make a truly memorable holiday experience."

'Your villa is amazing; we're really excited about coming back next year.'

‘Your beautiful villa exceeded our expectations, you have really thought about the little extras that made our stay perfect"

Beautiful luxury villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this beautiful villa. The villa is perfect for anyone looking for luxury accommodation in a stunning but very peaceful location. The pool area and grounds are fantastic and the views are lovely. The villa is very well equipped and maintained. Rose was extremely helpful from the point of booking to providing guidance on the local area, restaurants etc while we were there. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

The Morlais Villa is an exceptional place to stay. It lives up to its description in every way from location to facilities etc. My partner and I plus my daughter and her friend aged 18 & 19 had a wonderful two weeks there in mid July. (2nd Visit) When not out exploring we would spend long lazy days by the pool with a barbeque and some refreshments to while away the evening. Rose and David are lovely hosts, always available to answer questions, offer advice, but never intrusive, lovely couple. There are lots of good places to eat nearby, the Almond Tree being a particular favourite. Also, Roots Bar, a 10 minute walk along the old coast road is highly recommended, a unique and very welcoming establishment. In summary,

a beautiful villa in a stunning location, amazing pool, good food, friendly people, great hosts and would happily recommend to family and friends.

Spacious villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? This is an amazing villa, a true home from home. The view from the villa is breathtaking; looking out over the sea with a mountain backdrop behind the villa. The outdoor space is fantastic providing plenty of seating spaces for all whether you want to relax informally in the shade or dine. We enjoyed the gas BBQ and the children loved playing in the pool with the inflatables. There are several bars within walking distance of the villa and nearest supermarket about 5 minute drive. Car hire is recommended and very cheap at only £20 a day. Rose the owner is excellent at communicating and responded to all my questions immediately and sorted out airport pickup and car hire for us. We cannot recommend this villa highly enough, and we have stayed in lots over the years! A personal thank you too Rose for allowing us a late checkout as our return flight was late in the evening. You will definitely not be disappointed if you book this villa.

Fantastic !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well we had a very relaxing time at this lovely villa..it has everything you could need it's well equipped and has lovely decor throughout , but the commanding view out to sea is fantastic, we loved sitting outside just "sea watching ". The outdoor area /gardens and pool is also a credit to the owners they have really thought about its layout with places to sunbath and nice shady cool areas to relax or eat alfresco...something for everyone !! . It's also a well situated villa for exploring both ways along the North coast of the island with lots around both ways to see and do. all round one of the best villas we have stayed in, will be booking again next year !!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

By the end of the first day we all said we would return to Roses & David's villa which says it all really. Sea front location, welcoming hosts, high quality property with homely touches. The holiday delivered its promise of relaxation and comfort. Sea food excellent and good value. Home from home.

Wonderful Private Seafront Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th stay at this wonderful villa and I have already reserved dates in 2017 !

Morlais Villa is immaculate inside and out. The outside space is huge and very private with mature shrubs and palms making a wonderful setting directly overlooking the sea. Plenty of sun or shade depending which you prefer. Well equipped and managed. We had 17 glorious relaxing days this year. Northern Cyprus has plenty to offer and this villa is an ideal base if you want to explore.
