About Shenis Hassan

I live in England with my Partner. I have Turkish Cypriot roots, I can speak fluent Turkish and my father was born in the Walled City of Famagusta. My partner and I visited the place and unknown to both of us we purchased a house in the street that my uncle and aunt live in. My family were delighted to hear of the news.

Shenis Hassan purchased this house in 2007

Why Shenis Hassan chose World

We fell in love with the historic city, we were warmly welcomed by all the neighbours, by my many relatives and of course the Turkish Cypriot People. The refurbishment of the house has been a labour of love by us and the community.

What makes this house unique

The property is just five minutes walk from historic buildings, museum, restaurants, bars, banks, shops, beach, the marina, etc. There is generally little need for a car hire or taxi as the house is very central. Fully air conditionednewly modernised and fully equipped with a suntrap private walled garden which is very quiet and spacious with olive and fruit trees. There is a tiled covered gazebo area allowing barbecues to be used all year round and sun lounges with umbrellas.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet peaceful holiday and that is exactly what we got. The house is situated in a very quiet residential street, five minutes walk to the town square where there are shops and restaurants where you can try traditional Cypriot meals.

The house is very clean and spacious and has everything you would ever want or need. There is a wonderful courtyard garden which is a little suntrap and if you are anything like me and love to sunbathe then this is ideal for you. If you dont want to go out in the evening you can buy in an assortment of meats and cook them on the stone barbecue and eat in the barbecue area at the top of the garden.

The beach is about 15 - 20 minutes walk but if you have young children then I would recommend a taxi - Tanner the local taxi driver will take you anywhere you want to go and come back and collect you.

The owner of the property is extremely accommodating and will go the extra mile to assist. The property Manager leaves you a breakfast pack for the morning of your arrival which we felt was a very welcome idea. She will also make sure you know everything there is to know, how to get to places how to hire a car etc etc. There are a variety of leaflets and instructions on different tourist spots for you to read which we found very helpful.

I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for something quiet, peaceful and a home away from home.

Ruhiger und zentraler geht es nicht!

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt im Herzen der Altstadt von Famagusta. In wenigen Minuten sind die Sehenswürdigkeiten fußläufig zu erreichen. Ein kleiner Lebensmittelladen (Tülin) ist um die Ecke und das Essen beim Aspava Restoran ist noch immer sehr gut und reichlich.

Besonders zu erwähnen ist der tolle Garten nach Süden gerichtet (eine Gottesanbeterin empfand das genauso).

Einzig die beiden Duschen ohne Vorhang sind etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig.

Die Betreuung durch Chris war bestens.

Wir können das Courtyard-Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Coast/Beach:

The marine and beach is a short walk away, approximately 20 minutes .

Travel:

Ercan airport in the North of Cyprus and Larnaca in the South of Cyprus are both about an hours drive from the airports. A car is not strictly necessary if you want to relax in the city or a nearby beach. If you are feeling adventurous you could hire a car from Larnaca airport or Ercan, or taxi it to Famagusta and hire locally.

Distances:

No need for a car as everything you need can be reached on foot but a perfect location for touring by car if you prefer sight seeing. Easy access to Iskele, Kyrenia, Nicosia and Karpaz with trouble free border crossing, should you wish to tour the South of Cyprus. Just to add icing to the cake the use of the Turkish lira brings Turkey prices making this a great value place to visit, where guests can afford to get the most out of their break by eating out (a bonus for the cook).

Welcome Pack:

As part of the Turkish Cypriot hospitality looking after our guests is very important. To ensure this tradition is honoured our guests will be provided with a free welcome pack. So no matter how late or early you arrive the pack will be there to say ‘Welcome’. The pack may vary from time to time but will broadly include: 2 bottles of large chilled water from the water cooler, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, 6 eggs, bread and butter.
