About Stewart

We are a retired couple with grown-up children, and when we go on holiday we like a high standard of accommodation. In 2004 we found a fantastic seafront location in Northern Cyprus and had to buy the view. We spent a long time selecting the design and furnishings to ensure the best comfort and for relaxation, taking 5 years to build we now share our time between the UK and North Cyprus. This property has been built, with no expense spared, and is therefore is kept in excellent condition, ensuring it is also in tip-top condition for our guests and friends.

Why Stewart chose Esentepe

This property is located just below Esentepe village, whilst keeping it's village look and feel, caters for all with it's shops and diverse cafe's & restaurants.

Built on the cliff top, overlooking the waters edge. North Cyprus's great beaches and mountains are only a short drive away.

What makes this villa unique

This splendid villa with it's own private pool, offers relaxation, comfort and quality, at affordable prices throughout the year.

FREE WiFi, English TV available, Complimentary Welcome pack..

I was also in the party where we arrived to no water. We had to fill buckets and use them to flush the toilet or we would have experienced an awful smell on our well earned holiday. The infinity pool was very rarely topped up and was therefore not in fact an infinity pool which was so disappointing as this was such an attraction. It was obvious that no one had checked the villa or prepared it for our arrival as the temperature within the villa was 35 degrees. Furthermore the villa was obviously not treated as we had ants everywhere even on the microwave and in the beds! We also experienced cock roaches which were very disturbing to the the children in the party. We were also charged extra money in terms of the deduction in the deposit we received back for 'excessive use of air conditioning' we had no way to dispute this as we were not given the opportunity to read the meter on our arrival or departure. We dispute this as we have holidays in North Cyprus regularly and never overused air conditioning! Fortunately we moved to another villa for the remainder of our holiday which proved far superior. Be vigilant when booking this villa !!

Stunning views ,but......

  • 3 of 5

We arrived at the villa at 3am where we discovered there was no running water.This was dealt with the following morning.The villa is lovely although it seems to have an ant problem , seen more than I've seen before in any other villas on the island. We enjoyed our stay although there were a few things here and there, light bulbs out etc .Our biggest issue was getting ripped off with the electricity bill, we were not given a meter reading on arrival so have no idea if the units we apparently used were accurate ( the TV was on when we arrived ) but are sure we were charged way over the odds,we were not excessive with the air con.They took one third of our deposit off us. When contacting the owner about this they were not willing to compromise on this charge so left us disappointed and not likely to return to this particular villa.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Yes, it was a wonderful holiday, and Sea Cliff villa was the thing that made it. I have reviewed this villa on TripAdvisor and all I can say is that from the initial enquiry to the day we returned home every thing went faultlessly. The owners were communicative, patiently answering some daft questions put by me.

The accommodation was spotless and well equipped. Perhaps more importantly was the fact that the beds were very comfortable - not a single moan from the six of us in residence - there is nothing worse than on night 1 of a 14 night stay you discover the bed is going to drive you mad by the end!

The villa is finished to a very high standard throughout. The infinity pool was used continuously by all - and maintained twice weekly.

Any issues were dealt with promptly by the management company (light bulb, gas bottle) who were available 24/7.

Perhaps the best endorsement is that we would like to return in 2016!

Further Details:

The towns. Both Kyrenia and Nicosia are well worth visiting. In Nicosia in particular are museums, coffee shops, bazaars, mosques, restaurants - most of it not changed much since the "Peace Operation" of 1974. Kyrenia is packed with shops, bars and restaurants, as well as hosting the famous Ottoman Castle and the close by St.Helarion crusader castle perched on top of the mountain range with outstanding views of the North coastline.

The turtles. On the sandiest beaches to the East of Kyrenia, turtles lay their eggs in May. These hatch in July, and on some of the beaches you are permitted to sit and watch as the hatchlings are encouraged towards the sea.

The coastline. Within an hours drive are dozens of beaches, ranging from exclusive rocky coves to swathes of sandy expanses. The larger ones offer water sports and bars/restaurants. Youll often find you have the further, smaller ones to yourself.

The castles. Within a short drive are two of the best preserved Byzantine castles in the world. St Hilarion and Bufavento are wonderful attractions for children of all ages. Exuding history, each demands a visit.
