About Steven

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.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing villa in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

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!

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. Taxis shops cafes bars all on the main road. More cafes bars shops just off the main square. Perfect transport, with polite and very funny driver. Would not hesitate to go again. Beach far mor than 15/20 minute walk, especially in blazing sunshine.Thank You Steven.

What a great house.

  • 5 of 5

A property placed in the right location, literally less than 5 minutes walk to all main shops, restaurants and bars within the castle walls. The house is beautiful, fully equipped and extremely spacious, enough for a small family or a couple. Home owner is very friendly and approachable at all times to help and answer any questions. When we arrived at the house it was spotless and a delight to arrive to.

Both bathrooms were also very nice and spacious.

The balcony area has also got furniture and cushions and extras boxed away so they are clean and fresh for us to use as and when required, alongside BBQ equipment ready to use.

Would highly recommend this place.

Third visit

  • 5 of 5

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.

Quality property great location

  • 5 of 5

An excellent base to explore the old town of Famagusta and the rest of North Cyprus.

The quality finish of this spacious property makes it so easy to maintain along with easy access to the roof terrace which is a delight.

All fixings and sockets are uk standard along with helpful signage to assist in their use.

We have visited Cyprus annually for many years and this property is one of the best we have stayed in and we will certainly be returning.
