Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Mike and Sally´s place. They are really nice people and gave us helpful and detailled informations about the area, they know Cyprus very well! The Studio is in a very good position, right in the center of the nice and pictoresque village Karaman. The Studio is cleaned and cosy and has everything we needed: a well furnished kitchen (when we arrived we found eggs, water , bread, milk ...anything we needed for a nice breakfast!), a new and cleaned bathroom (with towels), satellite tv, cd and dvd player etc. and a nice bedroom with view on the amazing garden. We only regret we didn´t spent enough time there! In fact Karaman is in a very good and strategic position from where you can visit the Kyrenia district, the north coast and the mountains with their castels. Highly recommended, especially for longer stay!!
