Brilliant stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Sel's apartment, and wish we could have stayed longer than our 6 weeks.

We were met by Sel, at a time suitable for us.

The apartment was spotlessly clean, the kitchen fully equipped, and bathroom facilities superb.

Comfortable beds, lots of linen and towels. Huge wardrobe space in all three bedrooms.

Back verandah, used for hanging washing, looks over garden which has olive and fig trees growing.

Side verandah, we used for meals when we use the BBQ facilities. This area over looked lot next door which has lemon,

mandarine, almond trees growing. Very pleasant.

Front verandah, we used for afternoon while admiring the view of the Kyrenia mountains.

The apartment as huge entertaining area and comfortable sofas.

Parking, loads of area in front of apartment.

We were walking distance to local supermarkets, butcher, hairdressing, dentist, etc.

In the evenings we would walk down to the beautiful Kyrenia harbour.

The position of the apartment make it excellent as a base, as

places of interest in Cyprus, are in all directions.

Sel, was only a phone call away for any help that we may require.

We look forward to seeing Sel next year.

Once again thank you so much

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 11 nights and certainly hope to return. We have visited the area on several other occasions.We liked the location which was residential and quiet and yet provided easy access to local shops, to the centre of Kyrenia and to all the places we visited during our stay. Parking was easy too. Everything in the property was perfect: fast, reliable wifi (very important for us as we had to work during our stay), very comfortable beds and bedding and plenty of towels, excellent seating and lighting, heating (necessary during a particularly cold spell) and hot water. We like to cook at times and found the kitchen very well equipped. A cafetiere or coffee-making machine would be a welcome addition for coffee lovers - the only thing we missed during our stay.

Dr 'Sel' is a charming host and was very quick to provide assistance when required. We spent most of our time walking the wonderful trails to be found in North Cyprus and even in January we found anemones, asphodel and sand crocus in bloom. We can recommend the wonderful Bellapais Gardens Hotel next to Bellapais Abbey for a special meal out, also Niazis and, when we have visited Kyrenia later in the year, we enjoyed eating above the harbour at the Set Fish Restaurant. We would highly recommend this property.

Fantastic 3 bed apartment with views of St Hiil Mt

  • 5 of 5

We have visited N. Cyprus on several occasions. On this occasion we decided to rent an apartment for 2.5 weeks. Selcuk met us by the fountain roundabout and took us to the 3 bed apartment. The apartment was immaculate and large with all three bedrooms having access to balconies.

It was so pleasant at the start and end of each day to sit outside with great views of St Hilarian castle.

One of the balconies has a stone barbecue which we used on a couple of occasions. The apartment was in a convenient location with easy access to supermarkets with easy access to the town centre e.g. 10mins by car.

The apartment was well equipped, furnished, clean and well maintained. We could n,t have asked for a better apartment. Furthermore, although the apartment has air conditioning through, we requested fans from Selcuk who met our needs by fitting ceiling fans in two of the bedrooms the following day.

Our only quibble was the flat screen TV which had limited access to English channel, namely bbc world news. It would have been good had the TV had a USB port availble on newer TVs so that I could have plugged my hard drive to watch films, but then again we were n't on holiday to watch TV.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, my friend and I were only able to stay in this delightful apartment for one week. ( but most certainly we will be back.)

It was a really wonderful week. The accommodation was superb.

Having been delayed three hours at Gatwick Airport to arrive in the early hours of the morning to walk into such a beautiful apartment was a surprise and joy. Especially as the beds were made up and so comfortable, A charming Sel was kind enough to call us at 3.00 a.m. to check our safe arrival. The surroundings are delightful, the bakery, supermarket and local shops all within 3 minutes walk of the apartment. The walk into town was refreshing although we did have a taxi back. At 10 TL = £3. was well worth it. The local Dolmus buses were interesting, efficient and cheap. You can bus to Nicosia and Famagusto very easily and cheaply interesting to see the countryside. If we had one recommendation it would be really useful to have a microwave and DVD player. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and most certainly will be back.

Wonderful Holiday home

  • 5 of 5

"Wonderful holiday home!"

My wife, her 3 lady friends and I stayed in this apartment for a week during the Bayram holidays. We were extremely happy with this spacious,well decorated apartment. The beds and sofas were very comfortable and of a high quality, bed linen too! Modern flat screen TV, wi-fi were icing on the cake. The owner, Sel, was very helpful and gave us plenty of suggestions on places to visit and resataurants to eat in. Even though we did not hire a car, centre of town and the beautiful and historic Kyrenia harbour, with lots of quality restaurants were within easy reach by walking. We chose to take taxis (all Mercedes!!) on the way back and the apartment, and this cost only around 3 GBP. There are many shops and small restaurants within 5 minute walk of the apartment too. We are well seasoned travellers and we are very happy to be recommending this holiday apartment to everyone! Enjoy it!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 weeks April/May. The apartment is spacious, light and has quality fittings and furniture. The balconies ( North, East, and West - a South would be too hot !) are large with morning and afternoon sun. Plenty of storage space.

The harbour and town centre are about 20 minutes walk ( gentle downhill ) but taxi back is 10 lira-about £3.

Good sandy beaches are about 3-5 miles but the local dolmus buses are frequent and approx £1-1.50.

Owner Sel was extremely helpful with suggestions on restaurants and visits.

Car recommended if you stay more than a week.

Everyone we met was helpful and friendly.

We have rented all over Europe, and this is the only place that we will return to.

Location

From the Owner

Almost uniqely in Krenia, the apartment is like a private house as there is only one apartment on each of the 3 floors. The ground floor apartment has its own entrance, while the staircase only serves the two apartments on the 1st and 2nd floors. The other two apartments in the building are owned by owners's sisters. The apartment was designed and built to high specifications of the owner (not a standard building made by a contractor). All rooms are very spacious and comfortable. There are balconies / verandas on three sides, two of whch are very large, offering ample sitting, sunbathing and dining space. Members of larger families therefore have plenty of space to "escape eachother"!
