“Wonderfully, relaxing holiday”

Our family had a wonderfully relaxing holiday. We travelled with 3 adults and 2 teenagers. The villa had everything you could possibly need and the pool was always a welcoming escape from the heat . The views were amazing and the locality was very peaceful. Access to a host of restaurants, and other tourist attractions were all easily accessible, although a car is a must. Ali was so helpful with all booking enquiries and the speed of replies was amazing. The whole process was seamless and the booking process along with prompt return of deposits excelled any previous holidays we have booked. We would highly recommend.

A family house well looked after. It was so nice and the temperature so warm that the pool was the ideal retreat for us all but particularly the grandkids who both improved enormously in their swimming abilities. The area is spectacular with the deep blue seas all seen from on high. Cooking barbies has never been such fun as was making fruit juices with Adam, a daily treat. fruit prices a fraction of that in UK when bought from road side markets. If you want a peaceful retreat with somewhere to cool down whilst enjoying spectacular views........ this is the place to be! Travel arrangements from/to airport and car hire superb and many thanks to Marion and you also Allie. We felt like we was blessed.

“Pure relaxation in beautiful surroundings”

Words cannot describe what a fantastic family holiday we've just returned from. We travelled in a party of 7 which included three generations of our family including my 4 year old autistic son. The villa is absolutely stunning and reduced me to tears upon arrival. The information provided by Alison was incredible leading up to the holiday and the transfers from the airport (Larnaca) ran extremely smoothly. This is not your average 'bog standard' rental property and to say that it comes fully equipped does not do it justice. A huge selection of books, cards, board games, childrens games, inflatables for the pool (including arm bands - saved us a purchase), juicing machine, sun tan lotion to name but a few.
My children (2 and 4) absolutely loved the pool and to see their confidence grow in the water over the 9 days was magical. The villa is set in beautiful surroundings and we wouldn't hesitate in returning. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.

Just got back from our spring retreat, a second visit to this 'well kept secret'. Villa Rockheart is a little gem hidden away from the maddening crowds and offers a relaxing interlude to a busy life. Its has spacious and well kept rooms accomodating from four to eight people.The kitchen is well equipped and a pleasure to use. There are many places to eat within the villa and grounds, with beauitful views. The pool offers privacy and plenty of places to relax in the sun or in the shade. Located near to shops, chemist, ice cream palour and restaurants but a car is needed. We had a transfer from Larnaca that went like a dream so easy.Would we go back? When's the next flight.!

“Timeless Cyprus”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Villa Rockheart - What a magnificent holiday location. Breathtaking mountain views from right outside the kitchen door and, glancing to your right, you have a panoramic view of the sea. Northern Cyprus enchanted us right from the minute we set our foot into Villa Rockheart. Perfect weather, gorgeous pool temperature, and wonderous historical sight-seeing sites almost at our door step.
Our adult kids had the time of their lives spending days at Escape beach - wake boarding, kayaking and parasailing then coming home to Villa Rockheart to cool off in the huge pool, enjoying cocktails at sundown; being adventurous and energetic enough to walk up hill to the local pub in the evenings and eventually taking the brave plunge to all go paragliding up in the heavens.
Cyprus certainly did not disappoint when it came to local cuisine either - every local place we tried, as recommended by house owner, Alison, came up trumps. Who knew you could get the best pork pies in the Northern Hemisphere just down the road from Villa Rockheart at the local butcher?
With one voice, we all raise our glasses and celebrate a fabulous holiday, which we are all wanting to go back to again soon.
