Villa With Pool And Sea And Mountain Views



Updated: 10-Sep-2016
Villa in Ozankoy, Kyrenia, Northern Cyprus - Quiet Location In Foothills Of Kyrenia Mountain Range. 5 Minutes Drive To Nearest Beach

Villa Zefyros is a wonderful base for families or couples who want either to explore the island, or just to chill out by the pool, of a combination of both. Air-conditioned bedrooms with fly screens, and comfortable open plan living areas, together with a large shaded patio, make this villa a real pleasure to be in, and the large 15m shared pool is the icing on the cake. Quietly located in beautiful mature gardens, it is within walking distance of the village of Ozankoy with its shops and cafes. It is close to the many sandy beaches, the mountain forests, the Korineum Golf Course and the bustling town of Kyrenia, with its Roman harbour and Venetian Castle. Lived in by its owners for 2 months of the year, it has that homely feel about it. The house has Wi-fi and access to British TV and has a Bose to play your music as well as a CD player.

About the Owner

My husband, Derek, spent his childhood in Cyprus in the 1950's, when it was still a British Colony, and lived in Nicosia. Summers were always spent in Kyrenia, swimming and dinghy sailing and he developed a deep love of the island, which is still there today.

He introduced me to North Cyprus in 1972 and it immediately struck a chord with me as it was so friendly and such a good place to spend holidays.

We bought Villa Zefyros in 2003 and now spend 2 months of each year in it.

We stayed at this gorgeous Villa for 10 days late May 2015.

The contact we had with the owners and the management of the Villa, Melvin & Irene, was brilliant, they were very helpful with all aspects of our stay, including directions and any other queries we had.

The location was great, near Ozankoy and Catalkoy Villages with restaurants and amenities in walking distance and approx. a 25-35 min walk to the harbour and Kyrenia Town.

The taxi services are second to none, however we feel to get the best out of Kyrenia and the surrounding areas, a car is the way forward.

Which ever suits you best, the owners will help with the booking of a rental car, or they provide a phone in the Villa with taxi services numbers, as well as contacts for any issues with the Villa.

The Villa is one of 5 beautiful Villas, surrounding a fabulous large clean pool. The pool has plenty of umbrellas for shade and sunbeds with comfy cushions, a very large pool, (much larger than the average Villa pool size), with only 5 Villas using it.

The gardens of the villas and round the pool are stunning, I can't describe how beautiful the setting is. The view one way is of the sea, the other the breath-taking mountains and the castle lit up at night and Bellapais, is something to behold.

The actual Villa is immaculate and has its own beautiful gardens, a cool place to park the car and every single facility you can think of; Really effective Air-con, lovely décor, comfy beds, plenty of storage, enough towels and bedding, every kitchen implement you will require including a water cooler, Wi-Fi, TV with DVD's and music, hair-dyer - basically you will have everything that you will ever need and more!

The real standouts, (the whole Villa is to be honest), are the fly screens at every door/window, it was brilliant to let in cool air without fear of bugs! and the very large patio at the front with the pull-down awning for shade was fantastic. There are private sunbeds and 2 sets of table and chairs on this patio, everything has been thought of.

The Villa has a full info book on all number of attractions like restaurants, activities and places to visit.

Our favourite restaurants were; Bellapais Gardens, Rafters, Archway, Eminem, Alley (not mentioned on trip advisor but a real gem) and Kervan.

Must place visits are; Kyrenia Harbour, Turtle Beach, Bellapais, any of the 3 castles and further afield Salamis.

All in all a great base for a great holiday.

Thanks ever so much Sue & Derek!

Delightful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two smashing weeks at this property last June. The owners provided a very good customer service, with all questions answered immediately. It was a very well maintained villa, spacious and spotlessly clean and we wanted for nothing. A real home from home. The kitchen had every utensil that could possibly be needed (even a brilliant water cooler)

The pool area was lovely, well maintained and surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers - quite an oasis. There is a choice of places to eat outdoors with plenty of sunbeds, umbrella's, tables and dining chairs.

We ate in the local restaurants most nights and every meal was excellent. On one or two occasions we went to Bellapais for our evening meal, where most of the restaurants provide a free taxi service to Ozankoy.

We hired a car through Karapasha - who provided a taxi service from the airport, together with car hire at a very reasonable rate.

We would like to thank Sue & Derek for allowing us to spend some time in their lovely home and look forward very much to our next trip there.

From the Owner

Our villa is ideally situated in the foothills of the Kyrenia range of mountains, with sea and mountain views, yet close enough to the towns of Kyrenia and Bellapais for easy shopping and activities. The pool is the great bonus, as are also the many beaches which are easily accessible from the villa.

Activity and Interests


The coast is 2 kilometres away. A 5 minutes drive down through the houses and the olive groves. There is a wide variety of swimming spots to choose from: little-known sandy creeks among the rocks, tourist beaches with sunbeds galore, fish restaurant beaches, and a turtle conservation project beach with 1km of sand and a great taverna (Alagadi Paradise Beach - our favourite). The water is crystal clear and snorkelling the rocky parts is a real treat.


The village of Ozankoy with shops and restaurants is a 10 min walk, the nearest supermarket - Lemar - is a 5 minute drive. The Roman harbour town of Kyrenia (Girne), with its narrow streets and tourist activities is a 10-15 min drive.

Further Details:

There are many cashpoints within easy reach of the villa and most cards are accepted. A 15-20 minute drive will take you up into the pine-forested mountains with walking trails and bicycle tracks. The views up and down the coast are stunning.

Other worthwhile visits are the 3 Crusader castles on the Kyrenia mountain ridge, the Karpas peninsula (National Park), the ancient city of Famagusta, and the central Troodos mountain range (altitude 2,000 metres).

From the Owner

Our villa is spacious and homely and is a great hit with families and couples. If you are seeking sociability you, and your children, have the option of meeting others around the shared pool. If you are a large family group, it is possible to rent one or more of the other villas on the site, thus keeping the whole group together with minimum fuss.
