“Simply stunning”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This luxurious villa provides an idyllic location for a relaxing holiday.You will need a hire car to get around but you are never far from the city of Kyrennia, the beaches or some picturesque locations. If you enjoy good food there are lots of fantastice restaurants nearby.This is my third holiday and we are still finding new experiences.This year we enjoyed eating at Eminem,Bella Moon ,Erols, the Kybele ,Trypita and the Terrace.If you want to stay put there is always the BBQ in the garden!
We also loved Shayna Beach for lunch and a very comfortable day at the beach.
This year we flew in via Istanbul where we spent two brilliant days then on to Ercan.Worth a visit if you can fit it in.

“A beautiful villa in a wonderful location, great for the family”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Both me and my partner recently got married, we chose the Azure villa in Catalkoy, Northern Cyprus as our honeymoon destination and we were not disappointed.

It couldn't have been easier to book and dealing with Susan and Geoff (the owners) was an absolute pleasure, they couldn't have been more helpful or informative. I can truly say they contributed to making this holiday as good as it was. No stone was left unturned and with the help of the Villa manager Sally, who lives in Cyprus and extremely nice and helpful lady based in Cyprus making sure we were well looked after once we had arrived. Sally took care of all of the car rental arrangements, cot hire and car seat hire and transfer to and from the airport for our 2 week stay...everything ran extremely with no concerns what so ever, we were collected from the Airport and transferred to the villa, the car and all other arrangements were there and waiting for us...we didn't have to lift a finger!!

My partner and I also took our 3 young children, all of which absolutely loved the villa and its location..on one side we had the beautiful mountains and on the other side of the villa we had beautiful coastal views.

Everything is extremely close with supermarkets and other amenities only 5 minute drive from the villa, also there are plenty of places to eat and money exchange places again about a 5 minute drive, with the stunning harbour about 15 minute drive from the villa. The harbour has many places to eat with lovely views and tourist boat trips and other activities which allows you to explore the island.

The villa itself was far better than our expectations a beautiful clean, well kept home. With a large amount of space and all the essentials you could possibly need. You certainly wouldn't be disappointed. The swimming pool was a great size, the only problem was getting the kids out of it! There is also air conditioning in the bedrooms allowing for a good comfortable night sleep and downstairs has the benefit of getting the sea breeze flowing through once the doors are open allowing for a comfortable stay even in the high heats just like it was when we arrived.

The Turkish Lira is also fantastic value for money and means you can live like kings on not much money at all, the exchange rate is extremely good and you certainly get value for money there.

A truly wonderful holiday which will always provide us with wonderful memories. Me and my family are extremely happy we chose to the holiday there and I would certainly go back, thank you Susan and Geoff for giving us such great memories..

“Lovely well equipped villa in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Villa situated in a wonderful location with mountain backdrop and countryside and sea views to the front. Great pool and BBQ - our favourite time of he day was sitting in the BBQ area on a very still evening with the heady scent of jasmine surrounding us - bliss!
The owners were very helpful throughout the whole booking process, helping
with taxi transfers and car hire and we were very well looked after by Sally.
the villa manager, throughout our stay. Thoroughly recommended!

“Great family holiday for so many reasons”
Reviewed 3 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We had a fantastic time at Villa Azure. Our first holiday with the two children so initially a bit nervous, but the property is very secure. Our youngest would have been unable to 'escape' even if she wanted too once the drive-way gates were closed. The villa has a sensible open plan layout meaning only a couple of patio doors needed opening to ensure a refreshing movement of air. For our own peace of mind it was nice that all the bedrooms were upstairs and the door leading to the sun terrace on the roof was lockable.
The kitchen was incredibly well appointed, I even found a series of funnels to facilitate transfer of water from the large, more economic bottles, to the 1.5L bottles more suited to the fridge. I was astonished to find there were even clips to seal things like bags of flour and herbs. The fridge itself was capacious with a brilliant section for getting cans really cold. Nothing quite like an ice cold can of apricot juice in the midday heat!
There was a cupboard in the hall area that was a veritable treasure trove for the children, toys, buoyancy aids, snorkel, masks and more. The same area contained a very useful guide to the villa and a basket absolutely stuffed with information/maps/menus from facilities in the region.
The living room had a TV with built in DVD player which the kids used a couple of times during the very hottest of days. There is also a CD player and much to our delight an iPod dock. There was also a nice little selection of DVDs/CDs for when you needed a break from the sun or just a change from sipping a drink or two watching the sun seemingly slide down the mountain slopes to the sea.
Refuse was collected twice weekly!!! Sheets and towels were changed weekly along with a villa sweep/clean. The pool was cleaned twice a week and a tanker came twice to top up the water level.
Whilst the driveway could get really hot underfoot the yellow flagstones forming a walkway round the whole villa remained cool enough to walk bare-footed.
The villa is managed TRNC side by Sally Isak who also arranged our hire car and taxi transfers to and from Larnaca. Both airport journeys were very comfortable nothing like the 'bag and people squash' we have experienced elsewhere. All through the lead up to the holiday we were uncertain of final party size, but Sally was incredibly helpful in sourcing us the right sized vehicle despite us changing the 'right size' several times.
The villa location is in the foothills of the Kyrenia range of mountains (also called Pentadactylos / Besparmak, I think) so views in front, to the sides and behind the villa are spectacular. Supermarkets and eating establishments are a short drive away, but a car is essential anyway if you are to get the most out of the regions' eateries, views and landmarks.
In all respects it was an outstanding holiday and we were all genuinely sad to leave.

p.s. My wife asked me to mention there were excellent clothes washing facilities and apparently cleaned and ironed clothes filled the suitcases on the way home. The importance of this escapes me :)
