Villa in Tatlisu, Kyrenia, Northern Cyprus - Peaceful Location On The North Coast Of Cyprus, 7 Mins Walk To Beach
We are two sisters, Kathryn, a teacher based in London and Mary a consultant and author based in Cape Town. We lived in Cyprus as children when our father was posted to RAF Nicosia. We loved the idea of buying a property in an area close to the beaches where we used to play as children. Cyprus is a place full of many happy memories for us and it has been very special to build a house here together where we can meet and revisit childhood haunts. We meet up in Tatlisu once a year to recharge our batteries and soak up the beauty of Cyprus
Kathryn purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Kathryn chose Tatl覺su
We loved the setting between the mountains and the sea. It was important to us to be in a small development with just a few houses, close enough to town for all the facilities but far enough away to escape all the hustle and bustle. We like being able to walk to the beach or sit quietly by our pool with the choice between the two options being the biggest decision of the day!
What makes this Villa unique
Good sized private pool. Great to lounge around and cool off in when sunbathing, but long enough to do a few laps if you are feeling energetic. Close to local shops for basic necessities and small restaurants so no need to travel if you want to relax away from town. Close enough to Kyrenia, Nicosia and Famagusta for shopping, restaurants and nightlife if you wish to enjoy these. If you want to explore unspoiled scenery take a walk into the mountains, along the coast or take a drive and see the spectacular views from Kantara Castle and visit the beautiful Karpaz Peninsula which is easily accessible by the new road through spectacular scenery.

Greatly situated for exploring the nice beaches
Nicely presented villa very clean with a fantastic pool. Quiet and private. Jackie who greeted us on our arrival was great nothing to much trouble. Overall we had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay. The only small items we can comment on, bit more free wardrobe space and bathroom bit outdated. Will happily return and gave already recommended to a friend. Brian and Diane

Comfortable excellent Villa conveniently situated and well presented!
Lovely holiday- the Villa was excellent with Jackie and John being most welcoming, informative and helpful. Our first trip to Northern Cyprus and we’ll certainly be back - the restaurants are inexpensive and offer a wide variety to suit all tastes - the locals are friendly and helpful and all in all the best holiday we’ve ever had! Thank you Mary and Kathryn for sharing your home from home with us!
Thanks for your lovely feedback we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again!

The villa was lovely (if a little dated) the bed was hard and uncomfortable (for us anyway) , i managed to burn my hands on some very old pans (not heat resistant handles) although i didn,t do much cooking. The pool was kept very clean and had the pump replaced whilst we were there. However it was difficult to have peace and quiet around the pool because of the noise of the water from the pool ( it sounded like Niagra falls when the pump was on) also there is a smallholding at the back of the property and the cockerel was calling nearly all day long and then, (unexpectedly) prayers were coming through a very loud speaker about 5 times a day every day. Tatlisu was a bit remote than i thought it would be but we had a nice holiday ,hired a car and found some nice eateries/bars. Kathryn ( the owner )was very helpful with info before we travelled and Jackie (keyholder) was also a very helpful and lovely lady, thank you for everything jackie, p.s hope the kittens are ok ;) We would go again and recommend to friends. Xx
Thanks for your feedback as we are continuously aiming to improve our guest experience. We look forward to welcoming you or your friends in the future.

The Villa was exactly what we wanted. Really quiet a perfect location to seriously chill out. Really well equipped and presented beautifully. Jackie and John were on hand throughout and their help was given without delay and with pleasure. Kathryn responded without delay to all of my questions. Will definitely come again.

Idyllic private getaway
We booked with short notice and I'm so happy Kathryn's villa was available!
It was perfect for a mini getaway to the North of the Island for myself and my partner. We really wanted a relaxing break from work and the private pool and beautiful house really felt like a home for the few days we were there - I wish we could have stayed longer!
Kathryn was happy to accommodate our late afternoon check in and we were greeted by a lovely woman (I'm so sorry I can't remember her name!) who was so helpful, showing us the property and recommending local restaurants and giving us directions to the shop.
The villa really felt private and the top balcony was perfect for star gazing when it got dark in the evening.
We'd love to come back next year and can't thank you enough for providing a gorgeous home away from home for the weekend!
Thanks so much for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our villa and happy that we were able to accommodate you at short notice. We hope to welcome you back again soon.
