About the property

Character stone villa perfect for large groups of friends or 2 families sharing

Stunning sea views & back drop of mountains is the setting for this villa. Oozing character and charm it is truly a paradise on earth. Just minutes drive from villages and beaches this extremely spacious villa enjoys many original old features. Built and equiped for large groups of friends or families sharing with 17x10m pool that resembles a calm natural lagoon. The outside is furnished with 10 sunbeds, wooden deck chairs, hammocks and an area of calm under an olive tree with sumptuous floor cushions. Olive Trees and Mediterranean gardens surround the villa which melt into the land scape filling the air with scents of lavender, herbs and Jasmin. An outside shaded dining table which seats 12 at pools edge is perfect to enjoy long lunches or romantic dinners on hot balmy nights. Large kitchen which looks out onto the pool has ice maker & water chiller, 5 bedrooms all a/c, 4 walk in shower/wet rooms, fabulous open terrace from kitchen & lounge. A fun villa to be enjoyed by all.

Attractive to artistic specialist groups: Whether its the location of the house built amongst the olive trees, the natural surroundings of the tranquil Mediterranean cactus gardens, the stunning scenery and view from every angle or the wildlife ambling by such as goats, donkeys, lizards and dragon flies this whole property will be an inspiration to your artistic creativity.

Designed with amazing care and attention to every detail by the owner, who is himself an artist this would be the perfect location for organized workshops such as painting, pottery, writing, photographic and yoga.

With property and surrounding gardens /pool of this size its very hard to capture the spaciousness or show all the individual touches that make it special from just a few photographs we would be happy to send more if of interest.

Flights:: There are now 2 international airports serving Northern Cyprus. You can take a direct flight to Larnaca which is in the south of the island,. Flight time is 4 hours, a taxi or mini bus can be arranged to meet you at the airport, the journey time would be approximately 1.20 hours and the cost approx £100 each way for 12 people.

Alternatively, you can take a flight to Ercan which is in the North, taxi from here would be approx 30 minutes and cost approximately £50 each way for 12 people. If you fly to Ercan airport you will go via Turkey, the plane needs to re-fuel in Turkey where you stay on the plane for approx 45 minutes before taking offer - the flight time for this would be 3.5 hours to Turkey and a further 1.15 hours to Cyprus, the advantage here being the journey to the villa this way would only be 30 minutes by taxi.

Car Hire: Hiring a car is most recommended - very good rates available and the car can be delivered to and collected from the villa. Most guests prefer the small Jeeps which are great fun both on and off road, driving is on the left so nice and easy.

Weather: An amazing climate throughout most of the year, with the temperatures never really going down that low even in the winter months although at night and inside the houses can feel chilly which is why we had full central heating fitted along with 2 huge traditional open fires (kitchen/dining end and lounge). By March-April the sun is warming up and the wild flowers are a picture covering the fields and mountains, the are many interesting wild flowers including orchids many of which are indigenous to Cyprus. During summer months the temperatures are high 30's perfect for sun lovers. Sept-Oct are the most popular months of the year still hot by day but cool and breezy at night. Perfect !

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we approached the villa we both new that we had chosen the right property for our holiday. Words cannot describe how fantastic the interior had been designed and presented. Every attention to detail had been carefully considered and planned. The villa had a distinct homely Moroccan feel. The outside of the property definitely had the wow factor with the beautiful pool which we never seemed to escape from. The views from this villa were truly spectacular especially at night with the beautiful sunsets whilst sipping champagne. Our overall impression of this beautiful home was stunning, peaceful, relaxing and definitely out of this world.Thank you Sharon for making our week very special we hope to be back very soon.

A place of peace, tranquility and a true gem

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of staying at Sharon and Oscar's villa before and their care in making us comfortable is outstanding.

The villa is beautiful inside and out and there is space for everyone to relax and enjoy the bbq area, swimming pool and fantastic views.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough!

Breathtaking the 1st time, and amazing the 2nd!

  • 5 of 5

You have a picture in your mind, then you go home & maybe you think "ok that was with my 'holiday eyes'" - I mean, everything looks amazing through those, doesn't it?

But it is just as good the next time that you're there; the peace, the colours, the plants & the details that you don't notice for a few days...

Sharon (the owner) will organise car rental and airport transfers for you and Barbara (the property manager) will take care of you in situ, when required.

But don't come here - it's lousy - really, don't bother. That way, we get it all to ourselves when we want it......

A stunning villa in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Villa Kibar we were blown away with how beautiful it was. The owners have created a stunning villa with everything you need for the perfect holiday. We spent our days lazing around the beautiful pool which has wonderful views across to the sea.

It was the perfect location for us as we drove up to Bellapais Abbey a few evenings to have cocktails and dinner and then down to Kyrenia where we found some wonderful courtyard restaurants with the best mezze and fish. We also enjoyed walking around and the harbour and exploring all the wonderful shops.

Sharon, the owner of the villa couldn't have been more helpful, she liased with me months before we went out and organised jeeps for us, which we all loved especially the children. She also booked restaurants and recommended many more, and guided us to the best beaches.

I can honestly say it was one of the best holidays we have ever had and we wouldn't hesitate to return.... Hopefully !

Holiday for 70th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

Hi Sharon,

Holiday Villa Kibar - August 2013.

Thank goodness we didn’t cancel our holiday booking with you last year to celebrate my 70th birthday. We had a wonderful time and I know we will all remember the fun we had for years to come. It was lovely to see the birthday card and Happy Birthday flags in the kitchen entrance when we arrived. The car picked us up at the airport as arranged.

When we arrived - six adults and five children - all the children (and some adults) were rushing round the villa not quite believing it was just as you had described. The pool lights were on and it looked amazing.

The garden area was much larger than I had expected and we did enjoy the “chill out “ zone. We had several BBQ’s in the garden and went to the Ambiance Restaurant for my daughter-in-law’s birthday outing and to Kybele for my birthday meal.

Of course the children loved the villa pool and the youngest, aged six, learnt to swim after a few days.

We went to Alagadi Beach several times and were lucky enough to see some baby turtles just out of their nests although we couldn’t get on to any of organised evening sessions as they were booked up. However, we got plenty of photos for future school projects. One of the beaches we enjoyed the most was Shayna Beach.

One of the highlights was going on one of the day boat trips. We all swam in the sea from the boat. This was something I had always wanted to do, although it was a bit of an effort for me climbing up the ladder to get back on to the boat!

Thank you so much for all the helpful e-mails you sent me during the last year. I shall quite miss our e-mail conversations. You never know perhaps we will be able to go back

again some time.

All the best for you and your family.


Quote from my daughter and daughter-in-law.

“We were blown away the minute we saw and stepped inside the villa. From its lovely blue front door to going inside and seeing all the beautiful stone and wood. We particularly liked the driftwood pieces, wooden hearts on each bedroom door and all the lovely candle holders and lanterns. Very tastefully decorated.

The pool was lovely with so many sun loungers to try out in order to get different views of the garden. It was magic

relaxing by the pool and listening to the little wind chimes

tinkling in the breeze - such a nice touch.

The villa really is the perfect place for a big family holiday. Even the kitchen was very spacious and the lounge so cosy.

Owner's Response: Hi Margaret Thank you so much for your review and for spending your special holiday at Kibar Ev, we feel very proud that you chose our house and delighted that everything turned out so well for you. My son teaches childrens to swim and is very impressed that your little one learned in our pool, you will never forget that. Keep those blue sky, turquise sea, baby turtles, happy faces in your mind forever and please come back to Northern Cyprus again one day - I promise you there are still amazing things you would love to do and see and as the children grow it just keeps getting better. Keep well and take care and thank you again Sharon

A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Having decided to get married at Bellapais Abbey in June we set about finding a suitable villa to accommodate our immediate family and friends. We actually drove past this villa and commented on how lovely it would be if we could find somewhere like that so when we realised it was available to rent it felt like it was meant to be and we certainly weren't disappointed.

The owners really have thought of everything and Kibar Ev is a real home from home, not just another holiday rental. The villa is beautifully furnished with each bedroom having a different theme. All rooms had fans and their own airconditioning, a must in the hot summer months although the thick stone walls are very cooling. The master bedroom is beautiful with a huge balcony overlooking the pool and fantastic views of Kyrenia and the sea, a great way to wake up every morning.

The villa was also excellently equipped with the only thing I couldn't find being an ice cream scoop which I'm sure the owner has now rectified! The kitchen was a dream with every mod con going including a dishwasher, a must when there are 12 of you all eating at the same time.

We filled it to capacity yet it never felt as if we were crammed in. Our party ranged from age 9 months to 71 years of age and it was suitable for everyone.

The gardens are lovely and dotted with quiet relaxation areas if the kids are getting a bit loud in the pool. The pool itself was a great size, safe and a lovely temperature to cool off in. It was also cleaned twice by the maintenance company during our week's stay.

The outdoor eating space provides a great area for a lovely barbecue in the evening as the sun goes down.

It's in an excellent location just 10 minutes drive from Bellapais village and the Abbey and 5 mins to local restaurants in Ozankoy or about 15-20mins to central Kyrenia. You will need a car unless you are a very keen walker but the owners can help with organising transfers and car hire if required.

Whilst this place will always hold special memories for us because of our wedding it truly is a magical place and I long to return

Nearest Airport
30 Kilometres
Ercan (or Larnaca)
Car: recommended

Situated 5 minutes drive from the small but busy village of Ozankoy, where there are plenty of local restaurants to choose from, 2 simple but very well equiped shops, a butchers plus small bars and a coffee shop or by driving up towards the mountains you reach the picturesque village of Bellapais home to a variety of traditional restaurants and craft shops but most famous for its Abbey. Bellapais is an ideal haven for those seeking a calm and relaxing opportunity to sample the Cyprus of a bygone era.

If you are looking for natural beaches you need to drive for approximately 10 minutes along the east coast road where there are 2 or 3 long white beaches, its easy to see why the turtles have chosen this site as their nesting grounds, turtle beach is part of the world turtle preservation project. We are also approx 25 min drive from the first international standard golf course in N. Cyprus, The Korineum Golf and country Club, surrounded by sea and mountain views, its pure joy !

Other Activities: orchid and wild flower walks, mountain walks, clay shooting, house/garden environment suitable for painters, photographers,

Golf: The Korineum Golf and Country Club is the first international standard course to be opened in N.Cyprus and we are lucky to be approx a 30 minute drive away. Its is nestled towards the mountains with amazing views of the stunning turquoise sea from every hole. The club caters for golfers of varying ability, instruction for beginners and those who need help is provided by the professional staff who operate from the Academy. This is seperate and adjacent to the eighteen hole course. Here there is a driving range with thirty three tees, next door is a pitch and putt facility with bunkers and 2 additional putting greens with 3 full length practice holes for those under instruction. An extremely pleasant bar and outside sitting area along with well equipped pro-shop where one can hire shoes, clubs, trolleys, electric buggies etc. The course is 6,232 mtrs in length and has been designed for all standards, with the shortest hole being 123 mtrs and the longest 515. Each hole being carefully sculpted through the magnificent pine and olive trees is different in character to the last. This is a course which is both a challenge and a temptation luring one back to try and perfect ones performance. Many keen golfers have reported this to be one of the best concerns in northern Cyprus.
