About Michael Hudson
I work abroad and work full time so I am not able to visit my villa as often as I would like. I rent this villa to others, not so much as a business, but rather to assist in covering the costs of having a beautiful home in the Mediterranean.
Michael Hudson purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Michael Hudson chose Karşıyaka
I love Northern Cyprus because of the quiet unspoiled lifestyle. The views are wonderful with a range of bars and restaurants. There are many interesting places to visit and always with incredible views There is really something for everyone here.
What makes this Villa unique
I love to sit outside by the pool at night having wonderful dinner and sometime with the lights off and star gaze with a cold drink. I also enjoy the views of the mountains with the various weather systems changing in the early mornings. I am also lucky to have very friendly and kind neighbours who have all made me very welcome.

The villa was perfect, clean, well equipped, very spacious, amazing pool and views of the mountains one side and the sea the other.

Spacious, comfortable and in a great position
Firstly the villa is in a great position, with great views of the mountains and sea.
You will spend most of the day around the pool where you can relax and enjoy breakfast, lunch and even dinner if you want to use the BBQ.
Inside the villa there is plenty of room to move around and take that all important afternoon snooze!
We requested a cleaner at the end of our second week, which is definitely worth while as they are very thorough, and change bed sheets etc.
The villa is twenty minutes from Girne and even closer to local restaurants and bars where you can enjoy great food and drinks, which are good value.

Beautiful villa ideal for a relaxing family holida
This a beutiful spacious villa with fantastic views in a quiet peaceful area. We spent a week here, and would have loved to stay on for an other week. We will defiantly be back. It was our first trip to North Cyprus, so did not really know what to expect. We were advices to hire a car from the north and we used a company that picked us up from the airport and took us to the villa, then had the car dropped at the villa, and after the week, picked us up to take us back. Fantastic service and so easy. There was no hassle getting over the boarder, just showed passports, and straight through. There are plenty of restaurant around, and the food is lovely. We did not have enough time to travel round to see as much as we would like, as we also enjoyed relaxing and getting a tan around the pool. Would recommend reading up on what to do and see in advance, as it is a fascinating place, and as I said we will be back to explore it further. We went over in October and the weather was lovely 27-32 C, with a nice fresh sea breeze every day, and although there is air conditioning in the villa, we did not need to use it as it gets cooler in the evening. Would highly recommend the villa, and the owner is very friendly and helpful. When traveling to North Cyprus it’s like going back in time, and it’s a beautiful, interesting place to visit. Lovely and relaxing, and with the views from this villa you could relax by the pool for hours. Thanks for letting us stay in your villa Michael. We will be back

Lovely villa with a great pool
We recently enjoyed a two-week family holiday at the villa and had a great time. The villa is spacious and comfortable, in a quiet location, and equipped with everything you need. The real plus is the outdoor space with a fabulous pool and barbecue area. We spent most mornings sunbathing by the pool, then visiting a beach club in the afternoon and enjoying a barbecue at the villa in the evening. There are so many restaurants and supermarkets within a few minutes drive it's hard to know which to choose.We tried a good selection while we were there and had fabulous meals every time. We can definitely recommend the villa for a relaxing holiday.
