About the property

Apartment in Kyrenia, North Cyprus - Walking Distance to Shops, Restaurants and the Centre of Kyrenia

The view as you walk into the apartment is Wow! You're instantly on holiday! This is a stunning, spacious, glass fronted apartment with extensive sea views. Platin Sitesi is a small, prestigious development of private apartments on the sea front and yet within 20 minutes walking distance of the old harbour, the very centre of Kyrenia. Great for those who don't really fancy driving! But parking for those who do. The apartments are set around landscaped lawns and gardens and 2 swimming pools: an infinity pool looking straight out to sea and a children's/shallow pool. The apartment, which has air conditioning throughout, has three double bedrooms and comfortably sleeps six. The spacious open plan living/dining room has a balcony: perfect for alfresco dining or simply relaxing and watching the sea. The large kitchen is well equipped and has its own balcony. Platin is walking distance to shops, restaurants and the centre of Kyrenia with its historic, atmospheric harbour - just in the next bay. Beautiful beaches, restaurants, villages, historic castles and towns, luxurious 5 star hotels, mountain trails, water parks and golf clubs all await discovery!

About The Owner

We spend many holidays in Northern Cyprus where we have lots of family and friends.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Kyrenia Region

We've always loved the look and feel of this modern, sea front development and waited a long time for an apartment to become available. The view as you walk into the flat is breathtaking! You're instantly on holiday and feeling great. We love that you can see the never crowded pools and gardens from the apartment - having kids that's invaluable. We also love that the apartment is so close to the central Kyrenia amenities and hustle bustle but somehow feels so far away!

Until now we've let the property out on long leases (what a place to live!) and this is our first year of trying holiday lets. We've just had new bathrooms put in and the apartment done up. We've aimed for minimal clutter maximum space ... lovely.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We have had the most amazing holiday and feel blessed to have found your apartment in such a beautiful place.

I am sure that we will visit Kyrenia again and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when we do.

Thank you so much....first class service from Norman and Gill and yourself.

A truly unforgettable holiday."

"Had a wonderful stay in Cyprus, wish it could have been longer. Your apartment is beautiful and made our stay that extra special. The next time we visit Cyprus your apartment would be our 1st choice."

Perfect holiday location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Erhans apartment last September. The photos looked great but the reality was even better. We are regular visitors to the island and on this occasion wanted a car free stay in Kyrenia. The location of the flat was perfect, very quiet, but a gentle 20 minutes stroll to the lovely harbour and a 5 minute taxi ride back! The apartment is light, airy, spacious and really well furnished and accessorised. Three bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, an large open plan living area with a balcony which was perfect for morning coffee, sundowners and a nightcap...in fact perfect at any time of the day! It overlooked the pool area which was beautifully landscaped and most days we had the pool to ourselves which was great. The flat is as near to the seafront as you can get, and it is so soothing to sit on the balcony and just look out at the blue sea. There are a couple of mini marts within 5 minutes walk, and loads of cafes/bars/restaurants to choose from. From past trips we have our favourite places, but there was plenty of information in the apartment for first time visitors about places of interest, restaurants, beaches, and. everything you would need to explore the north. We loved our stay there so much that we are returning this September, and hopefully for many more Septembers to come. Erhan is very responsive to any enquiries, and Gill and Norman were extremely welcoming when we arrived at the apartment, despite it being a late arrival on a Saturday night. Can't wait til

Very well appointed apartment by the sea

  • 5 of 5

This was my 3rd visit to North Cyprus this year and this apartment is by far the most well appointed.

It is 3 flights of stairs up but the view is spectacular and the attention to detail is amazing. A real home away from home.

The pool area is spotless and the sea a short walk away. Its only an 8 minute drive from the Old Harbour and has a parking space undercover.

The managers are a lovely couple happy to help with anything.

Wouldnt hesitate to book again.

A truly beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment last year and I am just about to book again for this year. It was only then that I checked whether my review was still on the site and realised that it hadn't uploaded much to my disappointment. So here I am writing my review prior to making my booking for this year.

The apartment is outstanding with everything you can wish for. My partner and I loved the location and quickly became familiar with our surroundings. The neighbours were lovely and helpful and were only too happy to help if you needed any information.

Gill and Norman the couple who look after the apartment for the owner give a first class service and even picked us up from the airport (cheaper then local taxi's door to door service). Once we arrived at the apartment Gill was there with supplies of essentials, the apartment is really comfortable and furnished beautifully.

The location is perfect and the views are really amazing, it is lovely seeing the boat trip boats pass by during the day and evening. the pool is kept so clean there are sunbeds at the poolside (attached to the apartment) and it is pure heaven down there.

My partner and I walked into Kyrenia almost daily. We visited the escape beach club, there is a small admission but you can arrive early and spend all day there sunbeds are included in the fee and it is a great place to swim in the sea. Many of the Boat Trip boats stop off there and it is great watching everyone jump into the sea to cool.

We ate at many restaurants whilst we were there and there is nothing more beautiful that eating at one of the restaurants on the terrace and watching the hustle and bustle of tourists at dusk in Kyrenia Harbour.

The apartment is in a great spot just up the road is a local convenient store and then a little further (5 mins) you are on the main road where there is a great supermarket and some great little cafes. It really was heavenly staying at Platini Sites and I can't wait to go there again this summer - this time I will remember to upload my review correctly.

You will not be disappointed if you choose this apartment and location for your summer vacation. Kyrenia is a beautiful place.

Spacious apartment & stunning sea view

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful bright & spacious apartment with stunning sea views through a large window, the windows & patio door can be opened to hear the sound of the waves & feel the gentle breeze - it was difficult to leave !

The apartment is well equipped, modern, clean, with good comfortable furnishings & beds, it has everything you need to make your stay easy & relaxing.

The owner arranged the transfer from Larnaca airport, with an English couple who look after the apartment, which made things easy for us, they were very helpful, and the cost was reasonable.

The shared large pool & surrounding grounds are kept clean, & there are sunbeds for each apartment. As this is a residential area the pool does not have a bar & so it is very peaceful.

There is a small local supermarket about 100 yards, selling daily fresh bread & a range of other basics.

The walk to the beautiful Kyrenia Harbour can take 20 minutes or more, depending on your pace, as it is not possible to walk directly along the coast. There you will find an abundance of restaurants serving a variety of good food, or you can have a coffee & absorb the atmosphere. You can also get a taxi to a lovely village in the mountains called Bellapaise where there is an Abbey, beautiful views, and other great places to eat.

Enjoy your stay !

The best apartment I 've stayed at in Girne. ( this was my 4th time there) The place had everything you need, the decoration is perfect, the bathroom is brilliant and the whole place was super clean and spacous well equipped.

One of the best thing is that you hear / feel the sea in the living room.

The owner and the local hosts were very kind and helpful, answered every questions . The transfer and car hire was arranged.

Highly recommended, not only 5 but 6 starts!

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This clean, bright apartment is exactly as described but seems even more spacious. It is thoughtfully equipped and very well appointed. The pools are a good size and are always quiet. The transfer arrangements worked perfectly and the friendly welcome helped us to settle in quickly. The apartment is ideally situated for exploring North Cyprus - as well as the beaches and water sports, Nicosia, Karmi, Bellapais, Vouni Palace, Kyrenia Castle and the Karpaz Peninsular were some of our favourites. Communication throughout was prompt, friendly and helpful and we would happily recommend this apartment.

The sea front is visible and just about audible from the apartment - it's not a beach but rocks from which you can fish. Sandy beaches are a 10 minute drive away. Some beaches have water sports inc scuba diving, speed boat rides, cafes restaurants, changing rooms, sun bed hire. Others are more isolated and quiet. Turtle beach where you can see turtles hatching in late summer is 20 minutes drive away. The Karpas peninsula is famed for its miles of stunning golden sand beaches and wild donkeys.


Fly direct to Larnaca in South Cyprus for the cheapest flights. Larnaca airport is approx 60 minutes by car: taxi transfers and car hire can be arranged on request.

Otherwise you can fly to Ercan in North Cyprus: approximately 40 minutes by car: Taxi transfers and car hire can be arranged on request.

Car hire is not essential but North Cyprus has such a lot to explore and offer - it's advisable.


Nearest supermarket, bar and gym are 2 minutes walk. 5 minutes walk to next shops, tennis courts, bars and restaurants. 5 star hotel, Jasmine Court, is 10 minutes walk. Kyrenia harbour is 20 mins walk or a quick bus journey.

Bellapais Abbey and village and St Hilarion castle are both 20 mins by car. The capital, Nicosia, is 30 minutes drive.

Further Details:

Our apartment is looked after by a friendly British couple who have lived in North Cyprus for many years. They have lots of experience and knowledge of the area and can meet you and offer useful, practical advice and help.

Local shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. Local fruit and vegetables are in abundance and reasonably priced. Otherwise, Kyrenia has several large supermarkets where local and UK products can be obtained. Restaurants offer a wide range of dishes: local, fish, Indian, Chinese. Most local banks have ATMs. Leisure activities include walking, swimming, scuba diving, jet skiing, quad biking, paragliding, boat trips, turtle watching and relaxing. The Troodos Mountains and its ski resort is 2 hours drive from Platin.
