“OUR PERFECT HOLIDAY in HULYA HOUSE”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

To celebrate our fiftieth anniversary we decided to hire a luxury villa in Northern Cyprus for a month.  We were looking for a secluded and peaceful base from which to explore the country, yet with all the recreational facilities one could wish for within easy reach.  We were absolutely delighted with our choice of Hulya House.
The villa itself is modern, bright, spacious and extremely well equipped with everything the visitor could possibly need.  In particular the house wi-fi was invaluable. We spent a lot of time in the delightful garden with its outdoor eating area, BBQ and excellent pool.  We found Hulya to be a completely comfortable and homely place in which to relax: as the owners say in their comprehensive information folder, “our home is your home for the duration of your visit”, and that is just the way it felt.  Weekly visits from a gardener, pool maintenance man and maid kept everything on top line.
The owners were extremely helpful in organising our stay.  They arranged the taxi pick-up from Larnaca which went seamlessly, as well as a hire car that was waiting for us at the villa.  There was also a very useful welcome pack awaiting us in the kitchen.  They really could not have been more helpful and welcoming.
This was our first visit to North Cyprus but certainly will not be our last.  With plentiful restaurants nearby serving excellent local and European food at prices well below UK levels, spectacular mountains to explore, crusader castles, monasteries, sandy beaches and a wonderful climate we will be back to North Cyprus and Hulya House very soon.

“Hulya House lived up to all our expectations”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Having read the reviews of Hulya House our expectations were high but we were not disappointed. It is a spacious, beautiful house, beautifully decorated and catered for all our needs inside and out. We cooked at `home` as well as eating out, the water cooler was a real bonus.
It was hard to leave the peaceful gardens and lovely pool.
The transfer by pre-arranged taxi from Larnaca airport worked well and our hire car arrived at the house as agreed the following morning.
We visited castle ruins placed spectacularly on the top of mountains and drove to quiet, sandy beaches, our favourites being Alagadi (turtle beach) to the east and Akdeniz to the west.
Our plan to go to the Karpas Peninsular never materialised because we simply didn't want to leave Hulya House for that long!

“A beautiful villa & gardens in a superb and friendly location.”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We are a family with two young boys (1.5 and 4yrs) who recently spent 12 nights at Hulya House. We can not fault the level of service and communication from the owner in the UK and the management team in Cyprus. Transfers and car hire were pre-arranged and of good value and all went smoothly giving us more time to relax!

The Villa itself is beautiful, well designed and has a nice homely feel with great decor. The kitchen and rooms are well equipped, even a bespoke stairgate was provided to cater for adventurous little ones! The only real worry was keeping the kids safe around the pool.

The backdrop of the mountains was simply stunning. The breathtaking scenary along the mountain road from St Hilarion Castle was amazing and well recommended. There is lots to do to keep adults and kids happy.

The location of Karsiyaka village is ideal with the main town of Kyrenia in one direction and the relatively untouched scenary and coastline of Northern Cyprus in the other, both offering great places to eat and buy good food.

The local beaches are not the prettiest, but the rugged coastline has its own appeal. There are lots of bays to discover with safe and shallow areas for kids to paddle in the clear water. Unfortunately, at times this was spoilt by litter which is shame considering how beatiful it all is.

Saving the best until last - the people of Northern Cyprus are extremly friendly, welcoming and wonderful with young kids, our blonde haired and blue eyed youngest was made to feel like a local celebrity wherever we went (much to the displeasure of his older brother!).

Its safe, its beautiful and we would thoroughly recommend the villa and the country for an amazing holiday.

“LOVELY STAY AT HULYA HOUSE”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have just returned from our first holiday in Northern Cyprus and we know it will not be the last.
The weather was superb , but what made it special was staying at Hulya House. The house is ideal for families of all ages, from our 3 year old grandaughter who never wanted to come out of the pool to our two teenage grandaughters who could skype their friends back home, and make them envious of their surroundings.
The house is so well equipped but my husband and daughter especially loved the barbecue. After cooking our fresh fish on it, we dined outside because the nights were so balmy, but dining in the day it was a nice shady area to relax out of the sun.
Hulya House is well placed to visit lots of local restaurants (our favourite Veni Vici) and the beaches nearby are excellent. WE all loved "Escape Beach" it was more upmarket and had better facilities for our teenage grandaughters who loved the watersports. Although we spent 10 days at Hulya House we could not believe how quickly it passed, so we shall have to return because there is still so much more to see.

“Fabulous Villa”
Reviewed 3 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We just returned from a weeks stay at the villa, and loved it. We are 2 females in our 30's and were looking for a relaxing time in the sunshine, which is just what we got. The villa is a great size, and despite only being 2 of us, we would still have had plenty of space with 6. The kitchen is really well equipped, unlike other rentals, you can tell the owners regularly use this place, as they have thought of pretty much everything.
The welcome pack was great, it included milk, fresh bread, eggs, cheese, some beers, a bottle of wine, fantastic we thought!
The pool is gorgeous, and gets the sun all day, it was already baking hot in mid June, so the umbrellas by the pool were well used by us!
We also made good use of the BBQ, the local supermarket was great for fruit and veg and fresh meat. You def need a car, as nothing really in walking distance, but that was not a problem for us, we hired through Alison, and it was a very smooth rental pick up at Ercan airport.
We enjoyed the local restaurants, good selection within a 10 minute drive, and excellent value.
We visited turtle beach, about 45 - 1 hour drive away, which we really liked, its a large beach with shallow sea, would be good for kids. Local beaches were quite small, so no good for an evening walk etc... but ok for a quick dip etc..
Highly recommend this villa for a relaxing break in the sun
