About the property

Apartment in Kucok Erencoy, Tatlisu, North Cyprus - Quiet Location

Stylish and split level garden apartment on a beautiful, established, landscaped site, Crystal Bay Marina. Crystal Bay Marina is a small, upmarket, well-managed site in an ideal location (to reach all North Cyprus beauty spots and places of interest). The site has onsite managers. Crystal Bay Marina has many facilities, including: 2 swimming pools, 1 children's pool, children's play area, petanque pitch, putting green practice area (boules, putters & balls available free of charge), gym, resident's lounge (with a wide selection of DVDs and books to borrow), weekly classes - yoga, meditation and Zumba (just turn up 20 Turkish Lira per class) and beauty treatments, massages available to book. There are beautiful, mature gardens, including fruit trees, plus a well-recommended restaurant and outdoor bar with friendly service. Apartment has 2 bedrooms with double beds (1 on each floor), 1st floor bathroom (with shower over bath), ground floor shower-room/wc, sliding doors from lounge to private terrace at rear. Internet and NTV (with Sky Sports, Movies and Children's channels plus all the UK terrestrial channels and more) in apartment, plus DVD player and iPod docking station. Apartment is comfortably furnished and all bedding, towels is provided. The kitchen is well fitted with utensils, crockery, glassware and there is a charcoal BBQ. Very peaceful and rural location. Perfect for a relaxing break and exploration of the beautiful North Cyprus scenery. Sleeps 4. Nearby there are a number of restaurants and bars (walking distance or short car journey) some with live music, all with great food, atmosphere and friendly service. Alagadi (Turtle) Beach is nearby (short car journey) and the Karpas peninsula is a scenic drive away, and the rewards are some unspoilt, stunning beaches and clear, sparkling turquoise waters.

About Marjory McMenemy

Hi, My name is Marj. I am Scottish but currently live in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. I enjoy life in the UK however it is very nice to have a home from home in North Cyprus, for whenever I feel the urge for warm sunshine, beautiful views and peace & quiet.

I fell in love with North Cyprus the 1st time I visited: the summers are hot and dry and winters are mild, medieval castles dot a rustic landscape, the people are warm and hospitable and you can enjoy a wide range of Middle Eastern, Turkish & Cypriot dishes. The infrastructure and coastline is developing, but the area remains incredibly beautiful and unspoilt.

Favourite areas are the Karpaz peninsula, where the beaches are quiet, sand is soft and golden and sea is turquoise coloured, and Alagadi beach where loggerhead and green turtles come ashore in May/June to lay their eggs and baby turtles hatch in the summer. I am lucky to have great managers onsite to provide help with my guests, plus provide information on the local area and other services, such as shopping on arrival.

There are a number of great bars and restaurants close to my apartment now, including Roots bar (Caribbean, live music), Almond Tree restaurant (well recommended for great food) among others.

If you have not visited North Cyprus before I am sure you will love it as much as me. In order to see the island, you will need to hire a car/jeep to explore.

Why Marjory McMenemy chose Tatlısu

I thought it might be a good place to retire to (a few years off yet!) as English is widely spoken, the climate is lovely & the area is pretty much under-developed and unspoilt.

So, I invested off-plan in an apartment & have watched the site develop from a field into a lovely, quiet holiday complex, with some very nice facilities (restaurant and outside bar, petanque pitch, putting practice area, swimming pools, children's pool and play area). Despite the facilities, Crystal Bay Marina remains a lovely, friendly and peaceful place to relax and enjoy time out. I would love other people to experience my apartment & discover their own favourite places in North Cyprus.

To see the best of the island, & get the most from your holiday, you really need to hire a jeep & take off into the mountains or down the coast. There are some fabulous historic sites, quiet and stunningly beautiful beaches & breathtaking views.

What makes this apartment unique

My apartment has a fully fitted kitchen (washing machine, fridge-freezer, cooker, toaster, kettle) & is comfortably & stylishly furnished. There are air con units in both bedrooms & the lounge. It has its own patio dining furniture & a BBQ. INTERNET and NTV (including SKY Movies and Sport) is installed in apartment. The on-site managers can provide local information & advice. A food package can be arranged for your arrival (cost of shopping only). The apartment is located 25-30 minutes drive from the beautiful town of Kyrenia & 10 minutes from the Korineum Golf & Country Club. There is a great supermarket and deli minutes drive from apartment (Tempo). From the apartment there are views of the Mediterranean sea & the coastline to the north & mountain views (& walking trails) to the south. As well as 2 beautiful pools, and a children's pool and play area, on-site, there is a gym, putting practice green, petanque, resident's lounge (DVDs and books to borrow), weekly classes (meditation, yoga and Zumba - 20 Turkish Lira per class) Joya Bar & Bistro, and outside bar. There are other restaurants & bars within a short walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

All positive from emails received after holidays taken. I am now getting repeat bookings, which is good testament to visitors enjoying their stay at my apartment and on Crystal Bay Marina.

Car: recommended


The apartment is located very close to the coast and a short drive from several sandy beaches, including the beautiful Alagadi (Turtle) beach.


Ercan International airport is 40 mins/Larnaca airport is 70 mins. Car hire is recommended to get the most from your stay. I can recommend a car hire company. Jeep will cost in the region of £22 per day high season.


Kyrenia is approx 30 minutes drive. Esentepe & Bahcelli villages are a short drive. There are beautiful walking/running trails in the mountains from the apartment.

Further Details:

There are shops and restaurants nearby and a restaurant, bar and gym on-site. New bars and restaurants are opening all the time as this quiet part of the coastline is starting to be developed. Cycle hire is available on-site. On booking I will give you the link for the Crystal Bay Marina Owner's website for further details of local restaurants, bars, live music in the area and events.
