Bungalow in Ozankoy, North Cyprus - Exclusive Use Of Private Pool
About Philip Charman
It took us three visits to North Cyprus before we finally chose our plot. We wanted both sea and mountain views and most importantly to be in a quiet secluded location.
Philip Charman purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Philip Charman chose Kyrenia
Although we generally visit three times a year for two or three week periods we always find it totally relaxing and an ideal way to re-charge the batteries.
What makes this Villa unique
Past guests always comment on the peace and tranquility they have enjoyed which is only disturbed occasionally for twenty minutes or so by the tinkling of goat bells whilst the goats graze in the adjoining olive grove. The goat herdsman is very happy to supply fresh hellim (halloumi) and quite often this is still warm when it is delivered. We rent the bungalow to couples only and it is ideal for a quiet romantic break or just a peaceful escape from everyday pressures and stress. We love it and hope you will too. Philip and Lynn Charman

Great place to stay!
Lovely bungalow, excellent facilities especially the beautiful pool.
Quiet location within easy reach of the village and only half an hour's (steep!) walk from the stunning Bellapais Abbey with it's panoramic views.
perfect place to unwind
Ideal property and location for relaxation
All of our experiences relating to the property, as well as our memories of it, are positive. The bungalow sits in the grounds of the owner's villa, but the owners don't stay there when the bungalow is rented out, meaning that we had exclusive use of a wonderful pool and poolside patio and garden, with a backdrop of the mountains and a middle distance view (approx 3km) to the coast. The bungalow itself is pleasant, clean and had all the facilities we needed for two of us, including the essential air conditioning units in the living area and the bedroom(s).
You will need a car and the journey into Kyrenia, or a good supermarket, is about 10 minutes if you have one. The need for a car is the only reason that I have dropped one star off the location but I'm nitpicking there, as the setting itself is private and tranquil, which is exactly what we wanted.
Our dealings with the owner, Philip, were very positive. He was very proactive in contacting us shortly after our booking and in subsequent communications relating to arrivals, departures and general information, as well as being particularly accomodating.
It was exactly what we thought we were getting when we booked it and we would recommend it, without hesitation, for a couple wanting a relaxing holiday.
Nigel & Jackie
Very beautiful villa in quite neighborhood with swimming pool you will appreciate. Very good and professional communication with owner/manager. They are very helpful.
Zannabelle a perfect choice.
If you are looking for a nice bungalow in a good location, quiet area, but near resturants and Kyrenia this is it.
The house is perfect for a couple with a good size pool and everything you would need.
Quite and relaxing place with an easy landlord
Easy booking and the tips have been very helpful for pick up in Larnaca and the rental car. We could immediately move into the house and jump in the beautiful large pool. For the duration of our stay the villas in the neighbourhood have not been occupied. So we could spent 10 very quite days. Although we covered some meters in height there are some nice restaurants with typical food for a good price in 30 minutes walking distance. The nice and sandy Alagadi turtle beach can be reached within 15 minutes by car.
All in all optimum balance of costs and output for couples.
Oliver, thank you for your kind comments and glad you and Gaby enjoyed your stay. Best wishes. Philip
There are several very quiet beaches within 5/10 minutes drive including Shayna Beach club, Lara Beach, Alagadi (Turtle Beach) and many more for you to discover - all of which are never crowded.
The nearest airport is at Ercan about 30 minutes drive away. Alternatively, it fly into Larnaca and then cross the border - about one and a half hours in all. Car hire is recommended.
It would be a pity not to visit Bellepais Abbey during your stay as it is only a few minutes drive from the property as is Kyrenia with its picturesque harbour, castle and many restaurants. The fairytale Hilarion Castle another must, is only 5km away but don't forget the ruins at Salamis.
Boat trips are available from the Harbour and Scuba Diving from Turtle Beach. There are several local supermarkets close by and the many local restaurants provide both local and European food together with entertainment on certain nights of the week. HSBC have an ATM in Kyrenia.
