About Ken and Margaret Stevens
In 2002 we fell in love with an olive grove just above the village of Ozankoy and we knew this was the parcel of land we wanted on which to build our dream villa. The villa was designed by us with the help of an architect relative and after sorting out various permissions the building took shape in 2004 and our first rental was in April 2005. We are a retired couple who regularly visit the villa and are always looking at ways to improve the standard and comfort for our guests. We guarantee we will do our best to ensure you have a fantastic holiday in this lovely part of North Cyprus.
Ken and Margaret Stevens purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Ken and Margaret Stevens chose Ozankoy
Designed and built by us we naturally feel we have a villa in which we can be proud. The local builder who built the villa for us still maintains the property for us and we now count him as a good friend we can rely on.
What makes this Villa unique
A spacious villa set in a quiet and secluded area with sea and mountain views yet only a short drive to all the amenities.
Pool / Spa
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
Our second visit to this stunning villa set in wonderful gardens.
The swimming pool is fantastic and well maintained. The villa is perfect with everything you could wish for, an abundance of crockery and glasses, such a well equipped kitchen.
The owner couldn't have been more helpful from start to finish, organising our car hire and airport transfers, and was available to answer any questions we had. The villa manager was brilliant, recommending places to go and visit and making sure that everything was ok. I would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone who is thinking of visiting Northern Cyprus .......you won't regret it.
Thank you so much for your generous review which we much appreciate. We always try hard to ensure our guests have a great holiday while staying at North Star and knowing our efforts are recognised makes it all worthwhile.

A beautiful villa in an excellentblocation
From the moment of booking, we were extremely well looked after by Ken. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa was everything we were expecting and more. Both Ken, the owner, and Karen, the house manager were extremely helpful. We would recommend this villa to groups of friends and families. We travelled with a 4 and 2 year old and found plastic plates and cups for the girls in the property, which certainly put our minds at rest.
We would love to book this property again.
Must mention the carhire company who were outstanding
Thank you Willina for your very generous review. We hope to welcome you back to North Star again sometime in the future.
We stayed at North Star Villa for 2 weeks and enjoyed a fabulous holiday from start to finish.
The villa was immaculate and a much appreciated welcome pack was there for when we arrived including all the essentials plus wine and beer...so nice after our flight.
The villa had everything we needed to fulfill a good holiday. There was more than enough equipment, BBQ tools which we made use of. Comfortable beds with mosquito nets around so no nasty bites although we only saw the occasional mosquito unlike other villas we have stayed in.
The highlight of the holiday was the outdoor areas, beautiful landscaped gardens which were well maintained. Plenty of areas for sun and shade, an abundance of comfortable sunbeds, tables and umbrellas. The pool we are missing already, clean, warm a good size and so nice to be able to swim before breakfast. A few drinks on the terrace watching the sunset and stunning views prior to an evening meal...bliss.
The property manager Karen was friendly and unobtrusive and available if needed offering good advice.
Karapasha car hire arranged by Ken...good service with a smile our car awaiting at Ercan and taxi return back to Ercan on time and efficient.
We dined at a number of restaurants including Efendis, Erols, Rafters, Bella Mood and Bellapais Gardens. All excellent value, good food and service. Great atmosphere in Rafters on the tribute nights.
In summary this was our 5th holiday to TRNC and after our experience at North Star Villa have booked again for next year and have already made enquiries for 2019. We left feeling totally relaxed after a good holiday and looking forward to next year.
Ken and Margaret your villa met and exceeded our expectations!
Would we recommend the villa...absolutely.

A beautiful villa in a beautiful spot, just perfec
From the moment we booked North Star Villa the owner Ken couldn't have been more helpful, booking our transfers from Larnaca Airport and arranging that hire care were already at the villa ready for us on arrival.
The villa is gorgeous, spotlessly clean with everything available, plenty of crockery and cutlery a very well equipt kitchen with lots of great places to sit and eat or have a drink. The bedrooms are great with very comfortable beds and lovely linen. There is lots of wardrobe space and plenty of hangers which for us ladies which is great.
The outdoor space is just perfect a wonderful swimming pool with plenty of chairs, sun beds and umbrellas. There is a large table and chairs where you can sit and have a glass of wine in the evening, just perfect.
The property manager was available if there were any problems, and dropped in to make sure everything was ok, gave us some great restaurants to visit, a very helpful lady.
We had the most enjoyable holiday, and will definitely be returning to North Star Villa, we have rented quite a few villas over the years, but this one is top of the list. Thank you!
Upon entering the gates of North Star villa we knew we had made the right choice. The landscaped gardens are so beautiful and well maintained with many sitting areas with tables, chairs, umbrellas and plenty of sunbeds to relax and listen to the sounds of nature. It was blissful just to wake up in the mornings and sit outside in one of the many pretty areas around the garden.
The pool is a wonderful centerpiece and so inviting, I cannot wait for a chance to return and swim in it. Next to the pool is a built-in barbecue where we had many enjoyable meals not wanting to leave the villa even to explore the surrounding area. That’s for the next time! The terrace has a beautiful sea view and spectacular mountain views where we spent many a late afternoon just sitting there watching the sun go down.
The inside of the villa was immaculately clean and a welcome pack was waiting for us. The villa managers are friendly, helpful and very discreet not wishing to impose unless needed.
The villa is equipped with everything you could need for a perfect holiday, including satellite tv (should you be able to tear yourself away from the garden and pool) and very reliable wi-fi.
The villa is unique in its design with such a spacious garden with lemon, orange, fig and olive trees, not to mention all the beautiful flowers. It is in an excellent location in Ozankoy with several large supermarkets just a short drive away and restaurants within easy reach. The owner is extremely helpful and provided us with excellent information and responded quickly and efficiently to emails. I will certainly recommend North Star villa to my family and friends (in fact I already have) and cannot wait until I can return.
There are several small beaches just a short drive away. Acalpulco beach is approx 10mins drive away. It is a beautiful sandy beach owned by the holiday complex who make an entrance charge for their facilities. A little further on is Turtle beach; an unspoilt sandy beach with only a small restaurant offering facilities. West of Kyrenia are numerous beaches from which to choose-most make a small entrance charge for sunbeds etc. On the Karpaz in the east are stunning beaches, mostly deserted.
Ercan airport in the north is approx 40 minutes drive away. Transfers available with car hire.
Larnaca airport in the south is approx 90 minutes away. Transfers arranged for a small charge with car hire.
To make the most of a holiday in North Cyprus we believe that car hire is essential.
The villa is on the outskirts of Kyrenia (Girne in Turkish) with its shops, famous venetian harbour and numerous restaurants.
Nicosia (Lefkosa in Turkish) is just under 30 minutes drive away with plentiful shops and historical sites of interest.
North Cyprus is about exploring its many attractions and therefore car hire is considered essential.
If you enjoy eating out, there is an abundance of restaurants of all styles and prices to suit all tastes and budgets.
