Spacious Family Villa
My family (of 6 adults) stayed in this villa for two excellent weeks during the summer; the A/C did its job to cool us down and the pool was a welcome back up for both relaxing and cooling off. Tucked away in the mountains but still close enough to the town and supermarkets, this villa provided an excellent home for us, as it is fully equipped with everything you could need. A car is required and proved vital for trips to the beach, the city and even up the mountains... four wheel drive recommended for the latter! Within walking distance of the villa is a delightful little bar which hosts a Karaoke night on Wednesdays for those who like to let loose and perform while away. The neighbours, Sandra and Paul, were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble; their recommendation of Veni Vici proved their excellent knowledge of the area. Amicable, attentive staff and the mouth-watering menu of entrées and desserts made for the perfect relaxing atmosphere with a large family meal, with the restaurant motto, ‘May all who enter as guests leave as friends’ proving itself a popular place among the diners. Though we sampled lots of lovely restaurants, such as Silver Rocks, another particular favourite was Tervetuloa, with recommendations for the mezze starters... just a little advice... order main courses after to share! Overall, we had a wonderful holiday and hope to return to Northern Cyprus soon!
Great pool and lots of space
A very nice Villa although a few things needed attention which reflected in the price of hire a little remote a car was needed but overhaul recommended
My prices are held perhaps lower than others to give guests value for money, they are not intended to reflect any standard, my local agent says I should increase them to the level other charge. The word "overhaul" is, in my opinion, a little strong. Every year we make some improvement or necessary repair. For this year, for example, the lounge, kitchen / diner, hall landing and stairs were re-painted and the pool grill surrounds were replaced. The tiles on the outside terrace were replaced within the last 3 years and I added a rear pergola with terrace to give guests shade. I'll just close with an extract In received from a regular guest who has just returned from the villa.
"Villa was a picture again and we do appreciate the time and money that you expend on the place, as well as Sandra and Paul's hard work.
The villa improves each year instead of deteriorating, which is why I cannot understand the latest review - scandalous!"
Absolutely fabulous villa in great location. Would definately stay again. Villas was spacious and the pool fantastic - air conditioning was ideal. The villa was lovely and clean and had everything you would need it even had UK TV channels if required. There were lots of restaurants nearby our favourite was the Chinese. Having nearby caretakers who cleaned pool etc was always handy thanks Paul and Sandra. We were lucky we stayed with the owners for a few days who showed us round thanks Derek and Karen - it made our holiday even better. If you want a lovely villa holiday we would definately recommend this.
Wow. We stayed here for a week with our family and friends (8 of us in total). The villa is extremely spacious and has plenty of rooms for you to escape, have your own space and not be on top of one another, which is ideal when there are so many people sharing one place. Beautiful views from the front and rear of the villa. The pool is huge, lovely and warm. There are plenty of tables, chairs, loungers etc around the pool area and the house itself has everything you could wish for to make for a relaxing holiday. Small supermarket at the end of the road which is perfect and plenty of restaurants are located nearby (Silver Rocks is a must with a breathtaking view). Derek the owner was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to book Poppies villa again or recommend it to others as it was pretty much perfect in every way possible. Thank you Derek for the use of your lovely villa.
What a lovely villa! Well appointed, it is exactly as the description, standing in immaculate gardens, but seemed much bigger than in the photos once there. Very clean, light, airy and spacious, with good air con (a must at night). The TV/sound system was very good with all channels included. The pool was lovely, so warm and inviting, we spent a lot of time in it. Basement laundry room, barbecue area and plenty of outside seating (some shady) made for a very comfortable stay. Currency is Turkish Lira, a very good exchange rate made eating out every night very cheap. The owner of the villa, Derek, kindly arranged airport transfers and car hire (a must, to enjoy the surrounding area) and Sandra and Paul next door were great, organising a list of local restaurants to visit. We will certainly be returning in the future and have already recommended the villa to a number of friends. This certainly rates as one of the best holidays we have had.
This is one of the best villas we have ever stayed in. It is far bigger and more luxurious than the pictures portray. It is situated in a beautiful spot, sea to the front aspect and mountains to the rear. The pool was lovely, used several times a day, every day. BBQ good too. Very big duel aspect lounge, excellent tv/sound system complete with all sky channels. Poolside shower, toilet, sink and fridge. Basement laundry area. It really is a fabulous place to stay, well located for shops, restaurants and sight seeing. Restaurants close by were all excellent. We will definitely return but at a cooler time of year -was very very hot in July. Air con at night was a God send. Owner Derek was extremely helpful, he organised taxi to and from airport and car hire. Sandra and Paul who look after villa live right next door and were also helpful. Welcome pack included and they tailor made it for us. Can't fault anything.
