About John & Kath Dent

My wife Kath and I have taken holidays in North Cyprus for the past 15 years. We fell for the unspoilt tranquillity of the place and the warmth and kindness of the local people and bought our first apartment after just 12 months! We purchased Villa Kasim in 2012. Designed and built by the previous British owner for himself and his family - it was just what we wanted; spacious, with a well-planned layout with generous,well-stocked gardens, private pool, a close proximity to Kyrenia and all other amenities, plus its seclusion and privacy. Our grown-up children, Jonathan and Catherine and their partners and friends share our enthusiasm; holidaying here at every opportunity.

No hesitation whatsoever in awarding 5 stars!

Villa Kasim is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and occupies a superb position on the edge of Ozankoy village. We have stayed in many villas throughout the Mediterranean and would say that in terms of cleanliness and maintenance,( both inside and out), Villa Kasim beats them all. As soon as we walked in, we felt immediately comfortable and at home - every need has been provided for and the place is light, spacious and tranquil. We were very pleasantly surprised by how secluded the pool area is with it's charming wrap around garden and delightful views towards the mountains and Bellapais. We spent many relaxing days enjoying the outside space with the only noise coming from the cicadas occupying the villa's olive trees.However, due to the incredible heat and the need of a cooling breeze, we often ventured to Turtle Beach or the fabulous bathing facilities offered by The Korineum Golf Club, where incidentally you can get a great lunch. Eating out is a pleasure in North Cyprus - our favourite restaurants included "The Kitchen", "The Dragon" & "The Ambience" - all offering an extensive menu with good value for money.

A hire car is essential and we had terrific service from Karapasha. In fact, the whole of our holiday came with great customer service - from the first tentative enquiry, we felt totally reassured by the villa owner, who provided us with useful information and advice and handled our reservation efficiently and with a personal touch.Furthermore, the villa managers in resort offered a warm welcome and excellent tips and are on-hand should you need them throughout your stay.

We had a truly fabulous stay at Villa Kasim and I would defy anyone not to have a comfortable, relaxing and very memorable holiday there. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

A lovely detached villa a short walk from Ozankoy

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and well equipped villa that has everything you need for a quiet and tranquil holiday.

The villa is spotlessly clean as are the gardens and pool, villa managers Ingrid and Ziggy are on hand to answer any questions and sort out any problems should they arise.

The villa is in walking distance of a number of restaurants and many more are within a 5-10 minute drive and Kyrenia and the beaches are a short drive away.

We have stayed at Villa Kasim twice and already booked for next year and we would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to any one looking for a quiet and restfull holiday.

Lovely quiet and tranquil villa with pool

  • 5 of 5

Although we gave been visiting Northern Cyprus for the last 15 years it was our first stay at Villa Kasim. The Villa was very clean and had all the amenities needed plus wi fi is avaliable. The pool and gardens are lovely and secluded with plenty of shaded areas for dining or for a leisurely drink. Housekeepers Ingrid and Ziggy always on hand for any help or advice.

Ideally you need a car to see the surrounding area and sights and also for shopping from the local supermarkets, although there are a number of restaurants within walking distance and taxis are very reasonable. We would have no hesitation in recommending this Villa and we will definately be booking to stay again.

Second visit every bit as wonderful as the first

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this wonderful villa, we immediately felt at home on walking through the door. The villa was immaculate with everything you could possibly need, we couldn't wait to get into the pool which is a really decent size. The weather was in the 30's all week and the pool was a good temperature. We drove to Famagusta this time which was well worth the visit. There are some excellent local restaurants within walking distance and a couple of friendly bars. We hired a car from Karpasha and sons which do a special deal for guests at Villa Kasim, we were picked up at the airport and the car was delivered to the villa on arrival. The car was clean, modern and reliable, we can recommend Karpasha who were friendly and efficient. Ingrid and Ziggy the caretakers were so helpful and once again we arrived to a very good welcome package, beer wine bread jam butter etc so no need to go shopping immediately. There are lots of extremely cheap supermarkets in the area. We absolutely love this villa and if you are thinking of booking you certainly won't be disappointed. Thanks again to John and Kath for sharing their home with us.
