About Steven

I am from the North East of England and have been visiting Cyprus and North Cyprus for 0ver 10 years. I fell in love with the area and purchased a property to renovate.

The property is ran by Jackie from Famagusta Holiday Rentals

Steven purchased this house in 2011

Why Steven chose World

I have been holidaying in North Cyprus for the past 11 years and fell in love with the people, the pace of life, the coast line and the Old Walled City of Famagusta. I decided that I would like to purchase a property in Famangusta as it is much quieter than other areas of the island. One year I stayed in a house within the Old Walled City and it was the best holiday I had ever had mainly because I could walk to the restaurant, bars and cafes and I could forget about my car. My love for property and good imagination lead me to purchase a derelict house. It was a blank canvas that I could work with to create a great home for when I retire.

What makes this house unique

The White House is located in a quiet and peaceful area but with in 2 minutes walk of all amenities. There is a great roof terrace where you can sit and enjoy the views of the surrounding city and port. The house has just been fully renovated and all of the furniture and fittings are brand new.

5 Star Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

If you're considering a holiday in North Cyprus you won't be disappointed with the White House in Famagusta, which is a beautifully renovated and furnished property in the old town. Although you're only walking distance from a small shop and a number of good restaurants, the area hasn't lost any of its natural charm. This was our second stay at the White House which proves what a lovely place it is as we don't normally visit anywhere more than once.We hired a car for the week in order to visit other places such as Kyrennia and Nicosia and spent relaxing time on the roof terrace on our return. If you want to experience the real Cyprus this is definitely the place to stay.

Quality property great location

  • 5 of 5

An excellent base to explore the old town of Famagusta and the rest of North Cyprus.

The quality finish of this spacious property makes it so easy to maintain along with easy access to the roof terrace which is a delight.

All fixings and sockets are uk standard along with helpful signage to assist in their use.

We have visited Cyprus annually for many years and this property is one of the best we have stayed in and we will certainly be returning.

Does not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at the White House.....and it just gets better and better. We love being in the old town, we have our favourite restaurants but this year tried Othello as well. Highly recommended. The accommodation could not be better and for our two weeks a year seems like home. Relaxing every evening on the sun terrace with a gin and tonic is perfection... Thanks again to Steve (our absent host) and Jackie

The perfect place to relax and the perfect base to explore from.Very comfortable and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our second visit to The White House. The house is a great place to stay. We relaxed from the moment we opened the door. The owner has really thought through what visitors will need and provided everything possible. The house is superbly maintained and looked after. The shaded roof area is a perfect place to spend time and the air-conditioning really works if temperatures get too high.The bed rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms and showers are all you could ask for. The kitchen is well kitted out and the nearby corner shop is very well stocked. There is a good supermarket within five minutes easy drive.

We found Farmagusta to be a very friendly and extremely interesting city. The local (Palm) beach is somehow vibrant and peaceful at the same time. We also visited Nicosia, The Karpas,

Salamis and Kyrenia and St Hilarion Castle on easy ,very enjoyable day trips. Silver beach just up the coast has great swimming, easy parking, free showers and and a wonderful beach restaurant.

All in all a perfect holiday,

Tom and Janet French

A beautifully-renovated and fully-equipped property inside the city walls near the main square.

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with our week at the white house in Famagusta. The house and its amenities are exactly as advertised, and everything is new, well-maintained, and clean. The rear patio and rooftop terrace are particularly nice features, because they provide plenty of private space for sunning, dining, or for young kids to play. The owner is responsive by email, and the property manager Jackie is a few minutes from the house and easily contacted by mobile phone. There are two shops for groceries and drinks within a five minute walk and a full service supermarket just outside the walls about 20 minutes away by foot. There is plenty to do in northern Cyprus...Famagusta itself is an open air museum of buildings and ruins going back to crusader times, the well preserved ruins of ancient Salamis are a few minutes drive, and for sheer adrenaline-pumping check out the three castles -- Kantara, Buffavento, and St. Hilarion. One thing to be aware of is that the owner charges for electricity costs exceeding 20 GBP. Our excess amounted to 12 GBP for the week... We were two adults but we are heavy users, leaving the heaters on the whole time and using lots of lights. In summary we both highly recommend a stay at this property!
