We stayed at Freya Bella at the end of August for 12 days. On the first night, we struggled to find the place in the dark- especially as the detailed directions (kindly sent by Claire before going) to find Kardelen Sokak could not be communicated to the taxi driver (Cyprus Elite rentals) who was sent the opposite direction despite having been at the end of Yesil Sok. But once we found it and settled in, the villa with its gorgeous pool and lovely sitting outdoor areas was just perfect for our little family.
The children loved the large pool which was well maintained and cleaned regularly. The house was immaculately clean and well equipped with all the facilities we needed. While we did have some issues with the broadband, Ozzy was kindly able to resolve it by talking to the broadband providers. The beds were comfortable and the A/Cs were effective in providing respite from the heat when we needed it in the evenings.
We found the villa located ideally to the supermarket (Supreme), restaurants along the main road, Kyrenia harbour as well as the nearby Shayna beach. We recommend visiting the Mardo ice cream parlour down the road and try all of their delightful flavours which kept us all cool and comforted every day ! Lots of lovely restaurants nearby- the ones we dined at that were memorable were Rafters, the Kitchen and yummy Turkish pancakes for breakfast at Rabinez. The Shayna private beach was beautiful to enjoy your own piece of the sea. We did need a car to get around and it was fairly cheap to rent one as well (Soydan car rental were very responsive and happy to help)
Overall, we have a fabulous holiday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Freya Bella to anyone visiting Catalkoy/Kyrenia coastal area. Thank you Claire for letting us stay at your villa and enjoy a wonderful holiday in Catalkoy. We hope to visit again ourselves and stay here.
