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.

What makes this villa unique

There is also a large BBQ The layout of the bungalow is well planned across 2 wings; a generous, comfortable lounge and separate dining kitchen to one area with a hall leading to the bedrooms and bathrooms.

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.

Beautiful villa in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our second villa to this villa situated in the quiet village of Ozankoy, just five minutes drive from Kyrenia. The villa is light, spacious, very comfortable and very well maintained and equipped. It is also spotlessly clean. The highlight for us is the outside space with private gardens and a great pool area. We spent many relaxing hours with all meals taken outside. There is a BBQ for guests' use. The villa managers are very welcoming as well As being available for queries at any time. During our stay we visited Bellapais within walking distance, the Karpaz and many of the interesting castles. The villa owners are extremely helpful and this makes the booking process a pleasurable experience. We have already booked for 2016. Thoroughly recommended.

Perfect in every sense!!

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay in a hotel but for a change we decided to rent a villa this year, we are definitely converted, I don't think we have ever had such a relaxing and enjoyable holiday! The villa was immacualte and a lot larger than it looks in the photos, there were just two of us but there is ample space for four. The pool was a good size and cleaned twice a week, it's totally private and we spent many hours just floating around in the afternoon sun. There were several outside areas to sit and relax or eat. Ingrid and Ziggy were so helpful we were left a welcome pack of bread, butter, jam, wine and beer which was really useful. We took advantage of the WiFi for £12 a week which was fast and had a good reception. We found several excellent restaurants and bars in the village and found the locals of be extremely friendly. There is a supermarket nearby and we were amazed at how cheap food and drink is! We always felt safe and would not hesitate to return, I wish we could have stayed for longer. Many thanks to John and Kath for sharing their home with us.
