The house is situated in a quiet and peaceful area within the Old walled City of Famagusta which is bursting with history and beautiful buildings to explore.

House in Historic Old Walled City of Famagusta, North Cyprus. Near Beautiful Sandy Beach

I am from the North East of England and have been visiting Cyprus and North Cyprus for 0ver 13 years. I fell in love with the area and purchased a property to renovate to use as my holiday home. The property is ran by Jackie from Famagusta Holiday Rentals
Steven purchased this House in 2011
Why Steven chose Famagusta Bay
I have been holidaying in North Cyprus for the past 13 years and fell in love with the people, the pace of life, the coast line and the Old Walled City of Famagusta. I decided that I would like to purchase a property in Famangusta as it is much quieter than other areas of the island. One year I stayed in a house within the Old Walled City and it was the best holiday I had ever had mainly because I could walk to the restaurant, bars and cafes and I could forget about my car. My love for property and good imagination lead me to purchase a derelict house. It was a blank canvas that I could work with to create a great home for when I retire.
What makes this House unique
The White House is located in a quiet and peaceful area but with in 2 minutes walk of all amenities. The house even has its own roof terrace where you can sit and enjoy the views of the surrounding city and port. The house has just been fully renovated and all of the furniture and fittings are brand new.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Definitely a 5 star property as described.
The White House is a magnificent property, well managed by the owner. It provided for us an oasis of tranquility yet should you require -all amenities are within walking distance.
An excellent venue to explore Northern Cyprus. We will return many times .
Oh! What a lovely surprise, so peaceful and lovely
We have been travelling to North Cyprus for our holidays for many years now and previously visited Famagusta for a day visit but, when we saw this property advertised we thought it ideal for a relaxing break without the need to hire a car as we have always done before and decided to try it. We fell in love immediately. So clean, comfortable and so so quiet and peaceful. Steven the owner has furnished and decorated the house with great care and good taste and has supplied everything you could possibly need, and more, to make your stay comfortable. Location is great, short walk to shops and restaurants and , well we were spoilt for choice too with some really amazing food on offer. Wonderful. Delightful local people and so much to see within walking distance. We loved it. Thank you Steven for letting us stay in your beautiful house. We will be back. Jim and Joy

Amazing villa in a fantastic location
We’ve been to Cyprus a number of times and always stayed in an apartment in Iskele. This year we fancied staying somewhere more spacious and where there were options of evening entertainment on foot! And boy did we pick a winner! The villa immediately felt like home with every item you could ever need and loads more besides. And as for the location, well for me, this is the trendiest area I’ve seen in Northern Cyprus, with the exception of Kyrenia. Some fabulous bars with outdoor seating and live music and some fantastic restaurants. We’d originally planned on walking into the main part of Famagusta but it’s a bit of a trek with a buggy and the uneven Cypriot pavements! It’s only 5 mins away by car though and although a car’s not essential when staying at this villa, I’d advise it to be able to go to beaches further north etc. When renting a car either speak to the villa’s owner Steve who will have local contacts or if hiring one yourself, make sure you use a company based in Famagusta not Kyrenia, as the latter will slap on a hefty £50 delivery charge! Should be able to get one for around £15-17 a day and petrol is super cheap out there. Anyway if you’re looking for a well cared for home with all your home comforts, I seriously don’t think you could find better for your money. We’d return in a heartbeat! Oh and Brits, all the plug sockets are UK ones, so you don’t need European adapters. Finally, the owner Steve was incredibly efficient and a fantastic communicator-he really makes every effort for the whole rental process to be seamless. Do it!
This lovely ground floor 2 bed house with a large sunny roof terrace is ideally placed for visiting North Cyprus. The location inside the old city walls is excellent with lots of local shops, bars and restaurants, all within walking distance. The accommodation was clean and tidy and well equipped. The housekeeper Jackie was on hand and a great help.
Many thanks for taking a few minutes to post your re view and we look forward to welcoming back to the White House in the future.
The White House is a home from home,with lots of sun,everything you need is in the house.rooftop terrace terrific with shaded area.small mini market just a few steps away.

Beach far mor than 15/20 minute walk, especially in blazing sunshine.Thank You Steven.
Another great holiday at the White House. We did very little in our week here. Relaxed on the rooftop terrace,used the facilities at the Palm Beach Hotel and visited our favourite restaurants. We wished we could have stayed for longer.
