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 house even has its own roof terrace where you can sit and enjoy the views of the surrounding city and port.

Famagusta Town House
Really enjoyed our week here. The house is equipped with everything you would need.
This is a lovely, lovely property - a home from home but with a roof top sun terrace which is perfect for sundowners!
Haven of Tranquility
A lovely property that provides all that is required. It’s very hard to tear yourself away from the roof terrace, as it is so quiet and relaxing with lovely views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you.
Another enjoyable stay
This was our 5th stay at the White House. It is in a quiet location, In a local street and 15 minutes walk to the beach. With one double bedroom and one with two singles.The best feature is the rooftop terrace. It has sun loungers and a gazebo. A great place to relax with a few cold drinks. The drinks are available at the shop across the street.Very friendly local people. Will return soon.
Thank you for reviewing your stay, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
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 .
