About Jacqui Sharpe

We love living here with our daughter and 2 rescue pointers.

Why Jacqui Sharpe chose Bellapais

We fell in love with the stunning u spoilt location and have worked with a local architect to create our dream home. What we adore here is that is totally private from the road but opens up on entering the property to reveal the amazing vista that is so unique to North Cyprus.

What makes this apartment unique

Whilst it has a sense of seclusion, situated on a private road, you can stroll to the local village in 15 minutes. We feel one of its main benefits is that it is so near to Kyrenia and Bellapais, yet feels private. Coco and Maddie, both rescue pointers, live in their own garden, whilst Ralph the tortoise lives in the little garden outside the garden studio.

An oasis of peace and beauty

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time staying at this property. Hosts Jacqui and Ian are very welcoming and have a wealth of knowledge of the local area. The studio is very comfortable and well equipped and they have clearly put a lot of thought in to making sure guests have private areas to enjoy. The infinity pool is beautiful if not a bit chilly but the views over the ravine looking towards Bellapais and the coast are simply stunning. I have stayed many times in northern Cyprus and thus is definitely top of the list for peace and quiet and amazing views. Would definitely recommend

Fantastic Villa and Pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday. The villas are spotless and everything you require is in them. It worked great with our two teenagers who had a studio to themselves. Both studios are done to a very high standard.

The views and pool are beautiful which we used a lot of the time and also enjoyed using the pool table.

Ian and Jacqui are great hosts and very helpful providing us with lots of information. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

This is the best accommodation we have ever stayed in and won't find anywhere else as nice as this again. Will definitely come back.

Highly recommend!!

Wonderful, peaceful property with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a peaceful retreat after a busy first week in North Cyprus.

We were not disappointed.Jacqui and Ian have provided a lovely haven with outstanding views.

The accommodation is spotless and the pool area is just a fantastic place to be at any time of the day or evening.

Plenty of comfortable seating and lots of space.

Jacqui and Ian were perfect hosts. They provided information about the area and were on hand if needed.

We really , really enjoyed our stay and when we return to Cyprus we will certainly book the property again.

Be prepared to be wowed!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is in the most amazing location and has the most amazing views, you could not ask for more.

We have travelled the Globe and this has been the best place we have stayed in to date.

We hired both of the self contained studios and were rewarded with a discounted rate which came as a real bonus factor along with the welcome pack of alcoholic beverages & breakfast goodies.

Both studios where excellent value for the sheer luxury they provided (and I do a lot of shopping around).

We are a family of four, my husband and I had the upper pools side studio, while my 2 daughters had the lower studio, (their was also the option of a sofa bed for younger children to stay in the studio as well). This was a superb set up for us, allowing us to have our own space and giving our daughters their own independence and the opportunity to cook a few of their own simple meals.

We were very pleased with the modern contemporary feel, both studios have been decorated with a very tasteful eye and were clean beyond belief.

In the evening time the subtle lighting in and around the pool area was very ambient and an ideal location for our 2 daughters to laze around for hours on social media keeping up with their friends in the UK, while my husband and I chilled with a couple of beers.

Back in the UK family and friends have been wowed by our photos in and around the pool and terrace, but most of all the shots from the infinity pool were knockout.

Jacqui and Ian are very grounded, welcoming, and a font of all knowledge on just about everything in the area.

They did not intrude on our space giving us complete ownership of the pool and terrace area throughout our stay.

You will need a car, we recommend you use the guys Jacqui and Ian recommend, they are best value for money and offer the best transfer rates from Larnaca and also deliver and collect the car from your door.

I would not delay in booking if you dont want to miss out I believe they are taking a lot of bookings for next year already.
