Notes on accommodation: This luxury villa is in an exceptional location with fantastic views. Situated in a private cul-de-sac and free from traffic, the villa is tastefully furnished and will cater for your every need. A hire car is essential for shopping and exploring the area. Although the surrounding villas (only 18) are well separated (30 to 40 mtrs), we ask that you are mindful of our neighbours privacy with regard to noise late at night. Cots and high chairs may be hired. All water inside the villa goes through a water softener and filters. Outside: Huge 65 sq mtr balcony overlooking the sea, pool and mountains. The views of the sun setting over the sea are magnificent. On the balcony is a large stone table, 8 chairs and a large gas barbecue, together with a large 3mtr sq parasol. We think it is the best room in the villa. The downstairs terrace is in shade and has a stone table and room for 6/8 chairs. 8 x 4mtr private infinity swimming pool with mood lighting roman steps and safety rail. There is a 3 metre tiled area around the pool. The pool is cleaned and PH level tested twice per week. Lilos are supplied, for pool use only.

Fantastic villa and Pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa Guzel Manzara is set in a quiet cul-de-sac, has views over the sea and mountains, it is equipped with everything you need for cooking and laundry, like home from home. The property is very clean and well maintained by Mike & Lyn who manage it, they are both very helpful as are the owners Phil & Maxine who offer a first rate service, eg Phil organised car hire and airport transfers at reasonable prices. We were a family of seven, 4 adults and 3 teenagers and all really enjoyed every minute of our stay. The pool lights at night changing colours are absolutely stunning. Plenty of bars and restaurants local to the villa and most restaurants will pick you up from villa and drop you back at villa if you book a meal. In the nearby Esentepe village there is a bank a post office and shopsfor groceries.

We have just returned from a week’s holiday and I wish I was back there! We travelled as a group of 6, with ages ranging from 11 to 50 and this villa & location really did suit everyone. The villa itself is extremely spacious and well laid out. The owners have really thought of everything you could possibly need, from helpful information to pool games, DVDs & even books to read during the stay! They organized our transfer to the villa and back to the airport & also organized the car hire for us, it was a very easy & stress free holiday. Car hire really is essential as the points of interest are quite spaced out & the villa is situated in a nice quiet area ( perfect for having a drink under the stars on the terrace) However we did take a taxi a few nights so we could all have a drink and the price of taxi’s was very reasonable.

North Cyprus isn’t a place I would have normally chosen for a holiday but we went out there for a wedding taking place in Bellapais Abbey, and I would definitely go back! There was so much to see and the location of the property was so beautiful that we now wish we’d have gone for 2 weeks. There was something for everyone, myself and my boyfriend could enjoy it as a couple & also as a family with the kids & my mother. We did make full use of the rental car and travelled across the island and we all commented that Guzel Manzara was in the best location, with the mountain & sea views but mainly to be able to watch the sun set over the sea of an evening. Just perfect! Take me back!

The coast is only 300 metres away. There are many sandy beaches within a 5 to 10 minute drive. Many of these lovely beaches have a cafe & bars. If you travel further afield you may even find beaches to yourself. The coastline is famed for its breeding programme of Green & Loggerhead Turtles. You will find a turtle conservation area at Alagadi beach, where you can book a trip to observe the turtles laying their eggs & two months later you observe their offspring hatch & make their way to the sea.


Ercan Airport (Lefcosa, Northern Cyprus), 35 / 40 minute drive. Requires change of plane in Turkey. Larnaca Airport (Southern Cyprus), 70 / 80 minute drive. Airport transfers and car hire can be arranged by us at discounted rates. A hire car is essential at this superb location.

Further Details:

N Cyprus is the Mediterranean’s best kept secret, with its historical sites and secluded sandy beaches. Loved for its slow pace of life & value for money, it combines a beautiful coastline and a sunny climate all year round. The currency of Northern Cyprus is the Turkish Lira, (change your money in Cyprus)), which gives you more value for money than the Euro. Kyrenia has its picturesque harbour & abundance of shops. In the harbour is the 9th century Byzantine castle, which houses the shipwreck museum, containing the remains of a 4th century BC ship and its cargo. Next door to Kyrenia is Bellapais, where Laurence Durrell lived and wrote the classic Bitter Lemons. In Bellapais there is a 14th century Abbey, giving spectacular views over land and sea. The Besparmak mountain range is home to some ancient castles including St Hilarion which is said to be Walt Disney's inspiration for the Magic Kingdom in Sleeping Beauty. The District of Kyrenia hosts many restaurants, bars, nightclubs and casinos. Esentepe is a quaint village just 2 kilometres up the hill from the villa. There are numerous bars, restaurants and mini markets. There is always something going on at one of the bars and in June the village hosts the Apricot Festival with various events going on all week. Other activities within easy reach are Diving, Sailing, Trekking, Cycling, Fishing, Horse Riding, Go Karting and if you fancy a flutter, numerous Casinos. If you drive east from the villa you will travel through numerous small villages, each with their own charm, until you come to the Karpas region, where you can observe wild donkeys or laze on a deserted beach. Driving west from the villa you will pass the Golf Club on your left, various beaches on your right and come to the Elexus Hotel and then the Acapulco resort. For a reasonable fee you can use their superb beaches with sun beds, parasols and cafe bars and have access to water slides, jet skiing, paragliding and other water sports.
