About Karen Gallagher

My husband and I have lived in the TRNC for 11 years. We moved here to escape the hustle and bustle of the UK. Our lives are more relaxed and generally feel a lot better living the Cyprus lifestyle!

Karen Gallagher purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Karen Gallagher chose Kyrenia Region

It was on a visit to family that I found Catalkoy. But it took a further three years to find the right villa to buy. Villa Sakin has just the right mix between tranquility and privacy with easy access to beaches and other life's essentials like supermarkets, pharmacies and banks. It is well positioned for access to the airport and the harbour town of Kyrenia. The choice of supermarkets and produce is brilliant. The night life offers plenty of variety, Indian Restaurants, Turkish Restaurants and plenty of European Restaurants. The Bars are fantastic with one within walking distance, with draught beer and a good selection of wines and great meals. Also they have SKY TV.

What makes this bungalow unique

You can drive either East or West to an amazing array of beaches, all within 10 - 30 minutes. But you will be tempted just to soak up the stunning mountain view, sat by the swimming pool early in the morning, with wonderful pine fresh air or dine alfresco on one of the many terraces but then you might wish to easy drive to a local restaurant.

This property is not on an estate. It is not an road leading anywhere. At Villa Sakin you have peace and privacy but can get to whatever you need in minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best holiday we have ever Villa Sakin is a truly stunning villa with views of the mountains and the sea. My wife, 2 young girls and I had a wonderful holiday because of this gorgeous villa. All aspects of the villa, pool, gardens, the support of the owners and the location are outstanding. Another big plus was the WIFI. The villa provided for a perfect holiday and there is no doubt we will return.

serene, peaceful, relaxing

I would just like to say Villa Sakin was a joy and exceeded our expectations.

The whole experience from being met at the airport by the Wonderful Driver Volkan and the delivery of the car was seamless.

The welcome pack was a lifesaver arriving so late. i think you have thought of everything to make sure people enjoy their stay.

We could have quite a happily stayed forever.

fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Such a high standard deserves to be recognised.

The Villa is superb,immaculately clean,large airy rooms with both A/C ceiling fans and radiators.WIFI is an added bonus.

It is well equiped and lacks nothing-home from home.

The pool is excellent and the garden a delight to wander round.

The caring management team Karen & Terry are a wonderful asset,being both efficient and helpful----nothing was too much trouble.

We highly recommend this villa -----its the best we have stayed in!
