“Perfect For Families”
Reviewed September 8, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed for a week with my wife, 2 young children, and in-laws. It was a fantastic week, and the villa played a big part in that as we retired to it after lunch every day! The stand out feature for us was the pool, which was bigger than any we have seen previously on our travels, which importantly had a wall all around the pool terrace to stop inflatables blowing away!! The house was well equipped and clean, and in a beautiful location on the hill side. Lovely views in all directions. I was pleasantly surprised that the aircon worked perfectly too, and didn't frequently cut-out as some have in the past in villas in hot countries! Great service by Marion who looks after it too.....we had one small issue and she was on our doorstep within hours to rectify it....couldn't ask for better than that! A good location for getting around the area too. My recommendations for beaches would be L.A Beach and Fly Bar Beach, and restaurants you simply cannot fail to be utterly blown away by Punjab Indian and Veni Vicci Italian restaurants. Both simply first class. All in all a great holiday and highly recommended.

“Beautiful villa and location!”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just returned home from our 4th visit to Villa Rockheart & already planning a 5th. As always, the villa was in tip-top condition with cleanliness, new furniture AGAIN! .... and that huge pool is worth the value alone.

Great communication with Alison the owner and Marion the property manager is a brilliant help with anything needed.

Roll on next visit!

“Unforgettable”
Reviewed May 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The location is beautiful. The privacy, serenity and views this villa has to offer are its main attraction. It is a homely villa filled with everything you could possibly need. We stayed at this villa with our 2 teenage girls and my 2 parents and we all had plenty of room. There are areas of the villa where you can read a book privately or live quite openly.
We stayed here whilst we were married at Bellapais and it was ideal, we had a beautiful wedding.
There are plenty of good restaurants nearby but also a good supermarket that supplies well enough for a BBQ.
A car is essential. I would highly recommend this villa :)

“Excellent once again!”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This was our second stay at Villa Rockheart in Ilgaz, and it was just as great as before! This time we knew what to expect: a spacious, tastefully-decorated villa that could easily accommodate 6-8 people.

Booking the villa was straightforward again and our arrival smooth. The villa was in immaculate condition (as advertised) and there was a hearty welcome pack waiting for us, more than enough to get us through the first night! The property manager Marion arrived the next morning to make sure all was well.

Being in a villa means that you can enjoy all the mod cons whilst being on holiday but the pool at this time is too cold to use. In fact, one morning it snowed!

Hiring a car is essential because it's a long way to the shops at the bottom of the hill where you will find two well-stocked supermarkets, a pork shop and DVD shop among others.

We used the villa as a base to go exploring, including Buffavento castle, Bellapais (particularly recommend Diana Hair Club), Gazimagusa (Famagusta), St Hilarion and Nicosia.

Our favourite eateries were the Dolphin in Alsancak, the Carpenters in Karaoglanoglu and Ezic Peanuts in Kyrenia.

All in all we had a most tremendous stay at Villa Rockheart and we hope to come back for our third visit.

“More beautiful and charming than we had imagined...”
Reviewed October 20, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

My husband and I have recently returned from the most fantastic ten days at Villa Rockheart. We have never visited Cyprus before and usually opt for the lazy convenience of centrally located hotels so this was a step into the unknown for us.
Despite having read all the great reviews on the villa, we were still unprepared for just what an idyllic and beautiful place it is. The interior is superbly and tastefully equipped down to the finest details with stunning sea and/mountain views from every room. With every convenience to hand, blissful weather, a gorgeous pool and a stress free environment, it would have been easy to spend the whole time “at home” – particularly with the lure of smoky roast pork (cooked in the villa’s own outdoor wood burning oven) to which we succumbed on at least 2/3 occasions.
However, we were keen to explore and the information pack provided by the owners proved invaluable for us as strangers to the locale. With their guidance, we ate meze at the charming Tervetuluoa restaurant and steak at Ambiance directly overlooking the sea. We visited several pretty beaches and coves locally, chartered a boat from Kyrenia harbour and even ventured up the coast for a couple of days towards the Karpaz in search of fish to catch and eat (we managed the latter but not the former) We pottered around Nicolsia, shopped in the market, had coffee in The Great Han and saw a genuine Whirling Dervish.
Our one complaint is that our time went too quickly – we were left wanting to see more of this charming and fascinating island. Whether you want to do everything or nothing at all, there could be no better place to stay than Villa Rockheart. We have already re-booked for early 2015 and cannot wait to go go back. Thanks to everyone who made our first trip to Cyprus such a joyful one.

“Heaven in the hills”

I spent a week at villa rockheart and have come back relaxed a dressed. The villa is set in the most stunning location with stunning sea views set against the backdrop of rugged mountain range. The pool is a good size and the location benefits from a welcome breeze that is necessary in what can be extremely hot temperatures.
The kitchen is better equipped than mine at home and there is a pizza / bread oven outdoors for those adventurous cooks. We had several memorable dinners from the veranda as the sun set. Bedrooms are large and come with plenty of stowage. Beds are particularly comfortable. All in all a wonderful holiday and I'm already looking at dates to come back! Thank you for a wonderful stay villa rockheart :)
