Family from London, United Kingdom Dec 2017

A great welcome arrangement (starter food in the fridge as we had late arrival flight). Kids sofa bed all ready. All necessary facilities for self catering. The supermarket is just a few minutes down the road. Lots of swimming pool access but cold during winter periods. There was a guide made up which had Travel suggestions and tips. A few DVDs for the kids to watch. A beatiful view from large window (morning sunrise). Highly recommend that you have a car as this location is far from main towns but much peaceful and fresh.


Couple from Chingford, United Kingdom Jul 2016

This is a little gem of an apartment and I highly recommend it. Very good price and value for money. Mike the manager is very friendly and approachable and answers all your Emails promptly. The apartment is on the ground floor with views looking out to sea and therefore the sunsets are amazing. The apartment is equipped with everything you could need. There is 3 pools which you can use with sun beds and umbrellas. You do need a car to get to the restaurants and beaches although there is a beach across the road behind the tempo store. We loved this apartment so much we are already talking about returning again next year. Thank you for an enjoyable holiday.


Couple from Sotira, Cyprus May 2015

All that we wanted from our golfing holiday, at a very reasonable rate. Thank you to the very professional owner, and the Clickstay staff, regards to you all, Richard and Rada.


Couple from Portland, United Kingdom Oct 2014

Tidy little apartment with great pools across the road. Central location between Pan Handle and Kyrenia, easy access to Salamis and crossings both at Nicosia & Famagusta (Agios Nickolas). Just make sure any supermarket shopping is done at one of the bigger ones on the main road near Kyrenia as they have better selec tion and value. Both Mike the owner, and Mike the site manager are very helpful with great communication throughout our booking and stay. Friendly & peacefully complex.


From Kingsbridge, United Kingdom Jul 2006

We decided at VERY short notice to go to Cyprus due to cheap airfares. We searched on the net for accommodation and submitted three requests to prospective apartments. Mike responded very quickly and was very obliging. He not only negotiated an excellent price but was very helpful with advice.
On arrival my daughter and I were slightly disappointed as the pictures on the site showed a variety of apartments. But our initial reservation was quickly put aside. The apartment provided us with an EXCELLENT base to travel around Northern Cyprus. Its close proximity to quality restaurants, beaches and tourist activities, like the turtle project was an added bonus. I have to say we often had the choice of three swimming pools at our disposal without another soul was also fantastic.
It is a pleasure to recommend the apartment and Northern Cyprus to everyone, if it wasnt so far from New Zealand I would make it an annual holiday ....... Thanks Mike !
