Fantastically appointed throughout, with a large kitchen and lounge. All 3 bedrooms en-suite and air conditioned, which was great. The outside dining area - which is covered - was a lovely place to eat or just escape the sun for a while. Pool and surrounding area, first class, as was the BBQ and additional dining area outside. Really couldn't fault anything and we are returning next year. The location of the property means that you could manage without a car if necessary. Two minute walk to bars/restaurants and supermarket. Centre of Alsancak about 10 minute walk. Two minute walk to main road where you could catch Dolmus to Lapta or Girne. Can't thank Brian and Maggie enough for making our holiday so enjoyable.

Villa was spacious, well equipped & cool (with air con anyways!). Owner was attentive & helpful, her restaurant is top drawer, a real hidden gem.
