About the Owner

Having moved from Far Forest Worcestershire to Cyprus Whispering Palms has been home for my wife Anne and I since 2007, we decided to rent out our home for the first time from April 2012 giving the opportunity for others to enjoy and experience of this unique beautiful private location.

We have been very fortunate to acquire a property that has uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean and the pine clad mountains with a wealth of uncrowded beaches along the coastline , the historic harbour of Kyrenia just 40 mins drive.

Hi John and Anne.

First we would like to thank you for lending us your beautiful house. You have found a special place on this planet!

We all had a fantastic vacation, thank you for all your help during our stay.

We are really sorry about breaking the lamp. Have you found a similar one to replace it? As we talked about, you can deduct the cost from our deposit.

We wish you a great summer!!

Kind regards

John and family



Hi John & Anne

Been back in the UK for a couple of days and I am already loosing my suntan. I just want to say that we had a great time in Cyprus and your Villa was all we hoped it would be. Thanks for making our stay comfortable and relaxing. We would all like to thank you both for making this possible from the initial arrangements to the car hire, transport to and from the airport to stocking our fridge before we arrived. As I said before we left we would like to come back to Cyprus next year again if all goes as planned.

Kind regards

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Let me just start by saying WOW.....myself my wife and son have been coming to TRNC for the past 12 years with 16 visits within that time.

This villa is by a mile the best villa we have ever stayed in,superbly well equipped with a fabulous pool and to die for views.lots of sun loungers with cushions and a pergola to sit under for those lovely relaxing sits with a brew or beer,masses of quality towels and clean bedding a

Massive tv with access to johns netfliks account which our son loved and the villa is so homely And well equipped we actually had a couple of nights in watching a film and enjoying a nice meal,bliss.

The villa is 5/10 minutes from some lovely bars and resteraunts,Stevie's,the sea breeze,and the waterfall are our favourites

The owners john and Anne are fantastic,nothing was too much trouble they kept the pool and water always topped up without ever intruding into our holiday,they also arranged our car hire and airport transfers.we would like to thank them for allowing us to share their little piece of paradise and we have already booked again for next year,we have never stayed in the same villa 2 years running but this is so nice couldn't think of staying anywhere else.

Outstanding,it's as simple as that..recommend without hesitation

Wonderful Villa, excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

A very warm welcome from Ann and John, from the minuet we arrived we felt at home, everything you may need was there, nothing was too much trouble. The sea water pool was a great hit with our grandchildren, the outside was as well equipped as the inside of the house. Ample sun beds for everyone, the seating area was great in the evening to watch the sun set and the dining /BBQ area,again, a perfect setting overlooking the sea. I would not hesitate in recommending this property, its position gives easy access to places of interest and the great selection of restaurants. Thank you again Ann and John for sharing your wonderful home.

Fantastic Villa and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous time in Northern Cyprus coupled with our stay at the Whispering Palms villa. Situated right on the coast (only the Old Coast Road separating you from the Mediterranean), you could hear the sea ebb and flow early in the morning and in the evening as the sun set. Such a peaceful setting with great views to the West and the East. We were met by John on our arrival who immediately made us feel comfortable and welcome. The villa was airy, clean and very spacious. Bedrooms and bathrooms were inviting and I especially liked going onto the balcony as soon as I arose in the morning.

Both John and Anne are very friendly and always available if needed. We especially enjoyed the pool and relaxing in the gazebo when we'd had enough of the sun.

Would we recommend this villa? Absolutely! Although there were only two of us, this villa has everything for a group of friends or family. We would definitely return.

Holiday 2015

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year at Whispering Palms and we have already booked for next year, so really we don't need to say any more, but we will.The Villa is spacious with three good sized bedrooms two bathrooms and a cloakroom.Plenty of extra bed linen and towels.Lovely large kitchen really well equipped. Air con in all main rooms, also plenty of fans.Out in the garden there are many wonderful plants and shrubs,a glorious pool, large gazebo with table and chairs, a barbecue and comfy sofas to watch the amazing sunsets while having a sundowner. Relaxing around the secluded pool with views to take your breath away was a favourite past time. Anne & John the owners are a delightful couple always on hand if needed but never intrusive.Can't wait to return next year.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Have had a few fabulous holidays at this villa, the views are breathtaking, the pool is amazing. You can not want for anything whilst staying here, the owners John & Anne are always on hand if you have any queries of problems. There are a few restaurants in the area and have found them all to be very good..plus a local bar within walking distance. The area is so peaceful. The only problem is when we have to leave..can not wait to return again in June to our Heaven on Earth.

Stunning Villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The villa description does not do justice to how fabulous this place is ! The location is perfect , offering unspoilt views to the sea while the villa itself is very spacious , modern and very well maintained. The rooms in the villa are all very spacious and airy and all have aircon as well as fans. The cleanliness on arrival was of a high standard and the overall presentation was very appealing. The pool was absolutely gorgeous , regularly cleaned and was in constant use by the kids ! The large garden was very well maintained and had lovely seating & eating areas which we made great use of ! John and Anne couldn't do enough when called upon and made us feel very welcome without being intrusive . The area is perfect for a relaxing holiday but with plenty of scope for days out. We cannot wait for next year and have booked already ! A perfect holiday villa ! Doug & Clodagh
