About the property

Extremely well located (only 5mins from the centre of the popular tourist resort of Kyrenia -often referred to as the Pearl of Cyprus), is close to a supermarket just 1min by car or a baker/patisserie with other basic supplies is just about 5 min walk away or a beach/bay about 15min walk away. This comfortable villa is well decorated (modern with some Chypriot & tasteful touches), is well equipped in a unique elevated position with lovely views of the unique mountain range of North Cyprus and sea views from all the bedrooms. It is in a peaceful and green residential district (e.g. citrus trees lined cul-de-sac), birds chirping away, and a few local professional families. The house is on its own spacious plot with a 3 aspect mature Mediterranean garden incl. a totally private main garden with seating and BBQ facing the mountains and hillside (most famously Karaman or Karmi) villages & St Hilarion castle that can be seen on the hilltop above. A larger than usual 10x5m swimming pool is in front of the lounge terraces. The house is comfortably furnished with flat screen TVs, one in the lounge and one in the master bedroom. The lounge joins into the modern well equipped open plan kitchen. On the ground floor there is also another separate room used either as a study, second lounge as a games or reading room or a 4th bedroom as it has a comfortable sofa bed (1.40x2m). There is also a 3rd bathroom next to this extra room so it is ideal if someone does not want to use the stairs. The first floor comprises of 3 double bedrooms (2 with double beds and 1 with two single beds or just as a single bed if you prefer), with balconies and seaviews. There is an ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom and a family bathroom on for the other two bedrooms on the 1st floor. Outisde, by the pool and in the garden, there is plenty of outdoor seating (long chairs, relaxers, poolside table and chairs and parasols. There are beaches nearby (15 minutes to the beautiful bay of Kervansaray with its 5 star Merit Park hotel, a diving school or restaurants to view fantastic sunsets or to use its public beach. Escape beach, with a private beach and a restaurant, is also just 2min by car or the pictoresque mountain village such as Karmi or Karaman is just 7min. up the hill, by car. Nicosia and its old historic quarter is just 25min away by car using the motorway. Other touristic sites and towns such as Guzelyurt, Kayalar coast & villages, the Troddos mountains & villages or the Karpaz peninsula or Famagusta are all very accessible in a day. Korenium Golf course and the more remote 'Turtle beach' of Alagadi are also within a 20-30minutes drive. The paragliding landing site is close to our house (2 minutes away). But best of all, enjoy your beautiful home and pool in a superb Mediterranean garden with scented jasmines, hibiscus, bougainvilles, roses, lavender, palms, cypresses, rubber & pepper trees, jacaranda, frangipani and mix of fruit trees (plum, peach, mandarin, grapefruit, olive, almond, walnut, pomegranate, guava etc).

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Manolya is a lovely villa located perfectly very close to Girne. Great amenities nearby and perfect size for 6 people. Kirsty was a great host with good communication, helpful tips on what to see and where to go and help whenever it was needed. Lots of great shops in the locality. We would recommend this villa!

We had a great time staying at this villa. The pool is great (we spent more time in it than in the villa !), ideal location (5 mins to Kyrenia, gentle walk to great local restaurant and super bakers), friendly neighbours, and the owner and her local representative couldn't have been more helpful. The weather was perfect - so we had a super holiday.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The 2 weeks here lasted a lifetime! Great villa down a small side road. Very private, with a large driveway, secluded garden and of course the pool! All bedrooms are comfortable, with some lovely views from the balconies. The living area is also really spacious, however you will spend most of the time outside!

The area has 4 or 5 good restaurants within a 20 minute walk (would definitely recommend Carpenters, which is only 10 mins away).

The area is great for exploring and there are some great beach clubs just a few minutes drive away. Ideally situated for a ride into Kyrenia or for a quick trip into the mountains. Would recommend St. Hilarion Castle, but go when they open at 09.00 as there is quite a lot of climbing to do!

The pool is the highlight and we spent many hours in it, both during the day and when lit at night.

Would definitely recommend the villa, location and North Cyprus in general!

Owner's Response: Many thanks David for your detailed and positive review. I'm so glad you had a great time and you liked the location, quietness of our neighbourhood, nice bedroom views, level of comfort, our secluded gardens and as you say the highlight has to be the pool of course - that is spacious and private and surrounded by nice gardens or views. Indeed i agree with your recommendation for Carpenters that is on our recommended places to eat and there are other nice places to relax and have a meal or go to a beach club all within easy reach. We also appreciated your visit and the ease of communication we had and the respect you showed in returning the villa in very good order. Best wishes for the future. Kirsty

Car: recommended

The villa is located just 8 kilometres from the heart of Kyrenia, 1 km from the sea/beach and is conveniently placed with also very easy access to the new motorway that can lead to Kyrenia centre or Nicosia and other touristic sites.

The superb medieval castle of period of the Crusaders and the model of Disney's Snow White montain top castle is visible from our garden and light up magically during summer nights.

You are also close to the luxurious facilities of local beach side hotels such as the 5 star Mercure Accor, public or privately managed beaches just 2 minutes by car or from the picturesque hill-top villages, like the prettiest one near Kyrenia - Karmi- with their lovely little restaurants and bars overlooking the spectacular views of the sea, just 5-7 minutes by car.
