About Ron Carson

Hi, my wife and I own the House in Dogankoy. We fell in love with the Northern Cyprus in 2004 and took the plunge and bought the house in 2005. We had the choice of a number of sites and locations at the time but wanted to be close to Kyrenia but removed from town life, so we chose Dogankoy. We come out to the house three times per year and made the decision to selectively rent, primarily to cover costs. Over the years, we have forged some good relationships with the people we rent to and have listened to feedback, which I'm glad to say has been mostly positive, constantly improve the service provided.

We would be glad to help arrange transportation to and from the Airports and also car hire. We have used the same Company for five years because of their reliability.

Why Ron Carson chose Doğanköy

We have owned our House now for 12 years and rent ocassionally to cover costs. The House is exceptionally well maintained and equiped. The village is very quiet so a rental car is recommended. We can direct guests to a very competative and reliable Company who we have used now for 11 years.

There are lots of beutiful parts of the North to visit combined with a range of very interesting historical places, eg St Hilarian Castle- can be seen from the back garden light up at night.

The village coffee shop is close to the House. The resident expat community meet there several times per week, very friendly place for a drink.

What makes this house unique

Sunshine, peace and quiet. Private back garden with pool area. No fighting for a place arround the pool, booking sun beds, no torturous Hotel representatives wanting you to join in their cheap entertainment / games etc, no noisy neighbours or drunks.

Fruit trees , lemons, orange and mountain pear tress in the front garden.

Very cheap to eat out, have not had a bad meal in 12 years.

Well stocked Supermarkets, very good meats, fish and poultry for the barbeque. Prices much cheaper that the UK.

Constantly very good Lira exchange rates currently almost 5 to £.

Good markets close by every wednesday and saturday.

Usually good live entertainment in Kyrenia at weekends.

Drive to Kyrenia central approx 8 minutes allowing for traffic, walking 20 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful time. The house was clean tidy and well maintained. The pool and dining areas were just right . Beautiful view of the mountains. Expat social gathering on a Wednesday evening let us meet a lot of people for a drink.

Close to excellent restaurants and shops .

home from home - a fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa, equipped with everything you could need and a real comfy relaxing atmosphere. The photos and descriptions are accurate, the property is spotless and well maintained with assorted seating / cushions / sunbeds / towels and even cool mugs in the freezer ready for use so you can just chill around the pool. A welcome pack is provided and Sue, who looks after the property for the owners, lives locally and is on hand to help in anyway. A sizeable supermarket is within walking distance. We loved it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and look forward to staying here again.

Comfortable, well equipped in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Almond house certainly lived up to its description; the house was clean and well equipped, obviously a home from home. Although a car isn't essential we were glad we hired one (through a company used by the owner which was very reasonable) to pop into Kyrenia and many of the beaches locally. The pool was fantastic and the children especially loved it. We were very impressed by the space and sun beds, tables etc. The property has Wifi which was very appreciated as well! I would definitely recommend Almond house as a fantastic base for exploring Northern Cyprus and we hope to return!
