“Spacious villa with stunning outside area”
Reviewed August 17, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

Enjoyed a wonderful week at this lovely villa. The outside area is very private with a large and well-maintained pool, and you can get sun or shade at anytime of the day. Although you could walk to the harbour, taxis are so cheap that we tended to use these rather than walking in the august heat. It is also well worth hiring a car as there are lots of surrounding villages worth visiting. There are so many lovely and reasonably priced restaurants to choose from - we didn't have one bad meal! We found the local people friendly and helpful, making us feel very welcome. Derek was extremely helpful during the booking process and answered any questions we had. It was also good to have Ian and Incilay next door and they went out of their way to provide us with useful information. The folder full of villa information and welcome pack were much appreciated. There is some building work close to the villa but we didn't find it particularly noisy, nor did affect the privacy of the villa. We would definitely recommend Villa Tembel to others!

“Fab !!!”
Reviewed January 29, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

This was our 3rd trip to villa tembel and once again it dint disappoint. The restaurants were as good as we remembered and a great location to explore the area. Derek was as attentive as he has been in the past and very helpful. The villa has everything you need to feel.cosy and comfortable. A real home from home feel. We will definitely be going back.

“Well located villa with everything you need”
Reviewed November 8, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Great, 10-day stay at Villa Tembel. Derek, the owner, was really helpful before we arrived and through Ian, the local point of contact, arranged a welcome pack specially for us (we are both vegan) - I think that shows they care. The villa is well equipped. There's an 18 litre water cooler which was brilliant (drinking tap water not recommended). Replacements cost £1 at the supermarket. The kitchen has everything you need. The villa was clean (not spotless but probably the cleanest we've had). The pool is large and well maintained. It's located in walking distance of Kyrenia centre which is great, with supermarkets, and cafes/bars, close by. Only two downsides - one, it's close enough to a busy road to hear (but not see or smell) traffic. It didn't bother us but it might if you want complete peace and quiet. And two, there is a lot of building work going on nearby (high rise flats) which starts at 7am every morning. Again, we were OK with that but we did choose to sleep with ear plugs or it might have woken us up. Also, we lost power for 4 hours - common in that part of the world but we hadn't realised all the water is pumped so there was no fresh water (e.g. for flushing toilets) until it came on again - not sure if that's common to all properties but it was a surprise to me. These are why we could only give 4 stars, not 5 - but I would urge you to stay here if, like us, these are not issues for you as you won't regret it.

Thanks Simon and Sarah,
It was a pleasure having you stay at our Villa and hope you will return soon.
As we are so close to the town cetntre it is a compromise between being centrally located and total peace..
Little early to say but have merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Kind regards
Derek and Diane

Second visit to this wonderful villa, we absolutely love it and would thoroughly recommend it. The management company looking after you and the villa were amazing yet again and everything you needed was completely catered for. It is a beautiful area with lovely sites and restaurants. We will definitely come back...first class.

“Fabulous - can't wait to go back.”
Reviewed June 7, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Me and my friend stayed at Villa Tembel from 28th May to 4th June and I have to say we had a fantastic time. Kamil Taxi was extremely helpful in pointing out places to go and there were plenty of them within walking distance or a short (inexpensive) taxi ride. Lots of places to eat and plenty of boat trips available down at the harbour - we went on one to Escape beach and Kervanseray Beach - fabulous!

Cant wait to go back again
