Apartment was well equipped
Photo on web site was a bit misleading as now there is a hotel where the views of the mountains where.also there was no mention of the building site so best not to look down.having said all that the apartment was how it was described location was good and close to amenities the owners left a lot of information about eating out and where best to go taxis and things to do around the area. We did not have a car but used sadik and his son in law they were brilliant on time every time and just so polite and helpful but best of all reasonable. There is a lot of building work going on which is a real shame as it will spoil what is a lovely area
Perfect Holiday Setting. Just as described
We were a bit unsure about coming to the North as we had always been in the South. We really found it great value in comparison to other parts of Europe as the Euro is so strong. The North is not so overdeveloped as the South and we really had a great time exploring all the sites. The food was fantastic with a great range from local peasant food to fine dining fusion cuisine.
Lyn's Penthouse was just as it said on the tin, everything was as described or better. The view of the mountains and the seascape was a perfect match for our pre dinner drinks from the roof top. With the French windows open the living area and the rooftop terrace become one area so it was great fun to prepare meals, BBQ and eat outdoors. The local shops and markets gave us so much lovely fresh food.
Lyn spent a lot of time on the email advising us on flights and answering our questions about the place. He arranged our pick-up and hire car so we had no hassle finding the address, there are no road signs and his agents Sadik and Trish met us when we arrived to show us around and give us the hire car. We had two punctures up in the mountains and Sadik came out right away to get us mobile and home in time for dinner. The apartment was clean with everything working and a well equipped kitchen for us foodies.
Lyn's guide to the area gave us some memorable meals. Niazi's is one of the best traditional Turkish Cypriot meals, but our favourite was the Lamb in the Well at Deniz Kisi, only known by the locals. We discovered restaurant 14 in the old town of Kyrenia which was our favourite. We took the advice in the guide and drank the local beer, wine and spirits, these were very palatable and very good value.
The Penthouse has a really handy location, we walked to main part of town with the shops and harbour side restaurants in less than 8 minutes. There is a very good corner store who will deliver and the major supermarket is 5 minutes walk away, but we always needed the car to carry our wine.
We will be back and will be taking friends with us this time as it was one of our more memorable holidays.
I am so pleased that Sadie and Jim had a great time. Even though we are only a small operation with 2 places in Northern Cyprus and 3 in Northern Ireland we all try to make sure that a holiday with us is easy to organise, seamless from arrival at the airport to return. My agent in Cyprus and his staff go out of their way to look after our guests, I try to give loads of guidance in advance so new visitors can make the most of their stay.
When we go on holiday we like to know the best places to eat the most interesting things to do and have a bit of local knowledge, our guide does this.
I hope Sadie reads this as she was uncertain about coming into the Turkish part of Cyprus and worried about the border crossing. Well Sadie I told you it would be a great holiday and according to you it was.
See you next September.
My Holiday in Girne at the Penthouse
We thoroughly enjoyed our two week break, this was our second and next year will be our third visit to Lyn's Penthouse. The Penthouse was everything that we had hoped for. The location was excellent, easy walking distance to the old picturesque Crusader harbour. We had numerous lovely evenings on the terrace. The views are tremendous, and the colours are wonderful especially at dawn and dusk. You have to ignore the debris down below in the common ground and look beyond. Northern Cyprus is still a third world country and we have to understand that there will be differences. The restaurants were very good and the fresh food was great for eating in and for the large built in BBQ. The people are really friendly and very happy. We enjoyed watching the comings and the goings at the harbour. We found it totally relaxing and would definitely return. We were well looked after when we were there by Lyn's agent Sadik and Trish who looks after the Penthouse and were really helpful.
Jeanette is so right, this is why we loved the north of the island and bought the Penthouse. It is one of the few unspoilt parts of the Mediterranean, all the great features that Spain, southern Cyprus had 20 years ago before mass tourism spoiled them.
The location is really great as you can walk anywhere in the town, yet you can enjoy sea, mountain and coastal views. There is even an active harbour with a small naval base to keep you amused with their activity.
Sadik my agent is great as he looks after my guests from airport touchdown to departure, so there is nothing more you need to organise other than make the booking through me for accommodation, airport transfer and car hire.
Thanks for a great holiday
Wow, we really did have a great time. Our first visit to Cyprus, which we really loved. Teh scenery is stunning, in particluar the views from the balcony as we enjoyed our sundowners. A really ideal location, easy access to the best restaurants in town yet away from the crowds. The Penthouse was a great base for our trips to Famagusta and the ancient Roman ruins at Salamis. We even spent a night in the panhandle. The local staff Sadik and Trish looked after us well. Trish had the place spotless and Sadik sorted our airport pick up right to the front door with car hire at a decent price.Thanks Thelma for letting us stay in your lovely Penthouse, Karen really loved your decor and enjoyed the well equipped kitchen for quick lunches or BBQs on the Patio. It was really handy for the kids to nip down to the pool while we enjoyed the privacy of the rooftop terrace to sunbathe. The poolside was never crowded and most days there were only ourselves or one or two other families.
We look forward to our return visit in 2009.
My first holiday
Very much enjoyed my stay at this apartment, very close to all amenities in Kyrenia, and the views are stunning. Just the place to chill and enjoy your evenings on balcony with the view of harbour lights. Your agent "Sadik" is very polite, speaks good english, and nothing is too much trouble he is available anytime.
Very well maintained with all the comforts of home. Be proud of it Thelma, really enjoyed my stay, and will certainly like to visit your other villa later this year.
As you say sundowners on the balconey soaking in the view was one of the reasons we fell in love with our Penthouse.We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Siamo nella città di Kyrenia. Abbiamo una splendida vista panoramica sulle montagne, il porto e il mare. 7 minuti a piedi dal centro. Kyrenia Harbour offre una vasta gamma di attività di canottaggio, escursioni, pesca d'altura, addestramento subacqueo e relitti.
La zona circostante è meraviglioso per trekking, esplorando castelli dei crociati al mare e montagna, trovando ceramica romana nei vecchi porti e passeggiate nei anfiteatri usato 2000 anni fa dai Romani. I ristoranti intorno e al di là di Kyrenia sono eccellenti e prezzi ragionevoli. I vecchi magazzini Carruba intorno al vecchio porto sono ora sede di ristoranti con vista sul porto vecchio e il castello crociato. Il ristorante del Niazi al harabour e l'Albero di Ozio Bellapais Abbazia offrono viste spettacolari del tramonto per la cena. Shopping di souvenir è divertente, si può contrattare, ma non sarete infastiditi o intelata (a meno che l'acquisto di una tenda).
Ricordate che questo non è un luogo turismo di massa, che ha fascino e l'unicità del proprio.
