Thank you to guests who have provided us with a review of the villa. Very much appreciated.
Please do feel free to add your own review of your experience at Villa Doyan.
This villa couldn’t be any better and everyone in our group declared it the best holiday ever. The owners are prompt and efficient to deal with and also helped us hire cars. Our flight from Heathrow was delayed so we missed our connection at Istanbul but the car hire company were brilliant when we called to ask if 2am (instead of 4pm) was ok to meet us at Ercan Airport and even met us with a smile! With 11 people from 2 families, 6 children plus granny, the villa suited us all, it was spacious, well equipped and the pool was amazing. The views from the villa are stunning. It is 10 years since we were last in Northern Cyprus, yes it has changed but it is still beautiful and we won’t be leaving it so long before we return.
We have had two previous villa holidays in Northern Cyprus and this was by far the best. The villa is exactly as described. The location is absolutely stunning; from the infinity pool you have wonderful, unspoilt views of the mountains to one side and the sea to the other, watching the sunset from the terrace or pool was quite something. The villa itself is well appointed and very spacious, and although in a fairly remote location, it is only a short drive from restaurants and bars in Kyrenia and Lapta.
We had a wonderful fortnight — very relaxing, we would definitely return to Villa Doyan next time we visit Northern Cyprus and would recommend it to friends and relatives.
The Villa is everything we expected from the description, well maintained, well equipped and well presented, lovely pool and garden. The location is excellent, convenient for local facilities while being tucked away for privacy. Magnificent views all the way along the coast to the west. Just about anywhere is ideal for a 'sundowner' as you watch the sun sink into the sea!
The Spectacular views which encompass the villa are the first thing that grab you as you arrive. It appears no stone has been left unturned regarding the actual layout, from the location of the kitchen right next to the outside 'Eating Area' to the two master bedrooms hidden away upstairs. The huge rooms mean that you are never 'on top' of one another if you want just peace and quiet.
Its placement also means that you get to enjoy perfect views of sunrise and the glorious sunsets. It is well stocked and was very clean on arrival. Many access points allow you to get on the balcony that covers 50% of the villa and descend down the steps to the infinity pool which has a barbecue area strategically placed underneath a pergola to the east of the villa. Adequate outside lighting and a power supply to this area, along with a fridge, allows you to spend an evening here should you wish. There are many flowers and bushes all around the pool area which enhances all this with their splendid colours. The views from the pool are equally impressive and from wherever you stand, be it around the pool or the upper balconies there is so much to view.
I would recommend this villa to anyone and if you wish to contact me directly I would have no problem with speaking to you about it. The owner is quick to reply to any queries and is keen to help in any way he can. The pictures do not do it justice.
The villa has everything you need and the views are magnificent - both for sunrise and sunset. The infinity pool is magical with plenty of sun-loungers and a great BBQ area. The rooms are well laid out with a nice sitting room, large kitchen and a great veranda to dine out on. We've been in quite a few villas but this one has to be top of the list.
I would definitely recommend this villa. It has everything you need and importantly the whole villa, not just the number of bedrooms, caters for the 8 people it sleeps. Great villa inside and out, great views, great pool and great communication and feedback from the owner. The quality of the villa and the location is difficult to capture in website photographs and they don't really do it justice, so just book it and see for yourself - you won't regret it."

Set against a backdrop of majestic mountains, lazing in the crystal clear infinity pool whilst overlooking the sun drenched coast of the Mediterranean - now that is what holiday means to me. All this and a villa that welcomes you as soon as you open the door, begins to describe the setting of Villa Doyan, situated in the foothills SW of Kyrenia. A holiday that promises much yet delivers even more. An experience that we will definitely be repeating!
We had a terrific week at Villa Doyan. Everything was as the website promised and more. Very well situated with wonderful views of the sea and mountains and high enough to catch the breeze. The owners area guide was very comprehensive and well thought out. We would highly recommend this villa.
We had a wonderful stay at your villa. The family all thought how well designed it was with so many different outside areas, excellent and spacious accommodation and so well equipped. Thank you also for organising the taxis and the car hire, it all worked out so well as Bird were efficient, friendly and easy to deal with. We will have many happy memories of BBQs and eating outside under the loggia in the evenings looking at the wonderful sunsets and magnificent views.
We were all stunned by how big and beautiful the villa and the surrounding views were when we arrived. The villa had enough space for all of us to comfortably stay there for 2 weeks, there are enough areas throughout the villa for separate groups to relax in if wanted, but mostly we used the main balcony by the kitchen as this was large enough for us all and the view was magnificent!
Stayed for 2 weeks at Villa Doyan. It is a superb villa and the views are amazing, with breath taking views from the infinity pool and sunsets every night. The villa itself more than catered for our needs, very well furnished and equipped with everything you need to make an enjoyable holiday. We had a great relaxing holiday and can't wait for our next visit.
Thank you so much, we thoroughly enjoyed yet another wonderful holiday at your beautiful villa.
The villa & pool were stunning - the photo's don't do it any justice. We all had a lovely time and it was nice to just chill.
Thank you very much for the use of your beautiful villa the past fortnight. To say it was our best holiday ever is to understate the case. We all had a memorable time and your Property Managers were always on hand if needed to assist in our settling in and advising us where some good local dining places were off the tourist track. You have a great team there. Your villa is beautiful and the location only adds to the air of peace and quiet we all felt throughout the fortnight. Hope you still have the villa in 2013 as we will be back in touch:)
Wow!! Villa Doyan is a little piece of heaven!!!! Beautiful position and sunsets to die for. The owners have thought of everything to make it feel like home! We all had a wonderful time! The Property Managers out there are wonderful and the recommended car hire was brilliant! Thank you for making everything run so smoothly ensuring a perfect holiday and also putting up with my constant emails before we left!!! We are already thinking about dates for next year!!
"We stayed at the villa in May of this year for one week and had a wonderful time. The villa is beautiful, very spacious which was important as we were a party of ten, the pool was lovely and the views from the villa were outstanding. The outside area has been cleverly thought out with plenty of entertaining space and facilities. The villa was well maintained, clean and airy with a large fully fitted spacious kitchen with everything you needed. Good location with plenty of restaurants, beaches and places of interest to visit. We had such an enjoyable holiday we have booked the villa again in 2012!
Villa Doyan is a credit to Jerry and Helen who clearly take pride in providing an absolutely first class service. Our expectations were exceeded in every way. The villa is extremely well equipped, with homely touches such as lanterns, games and a guitar which we enjoyed strumming in the evenings. Plentiful outdoor space for two families, framed by breathtaking panoramic views of the sea and mountains behind. Wonderful infinity pool. Built in BBQ, fridge and bar for dining by the pool, or on the terrace above. The pool and outdoor areas are lit which adds to the balmy evening ambience, although supper by candlelight at sunset did it for us every time. Close proximity to beauties such as Girne, St. Hilarion and Bellapais. You'll feel like you are living in the lap of the Gods....be careful...you will not want to leave....
We stayed at Villa Doyan in August 2010 and had a wonderful time there. The owners have gone to great lengths to make the villa very comfortable, it is very spacious and extremely well and thoughtfully equipped, and an added bonus is the air conditioning which we found essential at night. We particularly enjoyed the space in the garden, where there are places to catch the sun but also shady spots, and the pool is absolutely magnificent. The villa's aspect is westerly, which ensures you can enjoy the sun all day long and witness some of the most stunning sunsets, whilst still swimming in the pool, or enjoying a glass of wine on one of the terraces. North Cyprus has many things to offer its visitors, historical sites, some stunning views and a fantastic choice of food. This was our first visit and we know it won't be our last. Would we stay at Villa Doyan again? Absolutely!!
A truly fantastic fortnight, in a perfect villa for two families sharing. Stunning views over the Mediterranean, and rear views of the mountains. Excellent outdoor living space and pool life. A great location for exploring Northern Cyprus, and the best villa we've ever stayed in. Can't wait to return next year!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Villa Doyan in July 2010. The villa catered for 10 of us in comfort, the owners having thought of pretty much everything you might need whilst on holiday. Highlights included:
* The pool and pool area - nice size infinity pool, great view.
* The bbq area - excellent, was well used during our ten day stay. The small bar fridge in bbq area was a nice touch.
* Well equipped kitchen - pretty much everything you would need.
* Provision of two local mobile phones - excellent idea, much cheaper than using UK based mobiles to check up on what each of us were up to.
* Great guide from the owners with lots of useful information.
Its worth noting that the roads to the villa have recently been paved, so we experienced no problems getting to it with a normal rental car.
Although the villa certainly does sleep 10, 2 of your party will be sleeping on (large comfortable) sleeper couches in the lounge for this to work. Wasn't a problem with us as we had several children in out party and they were more than happy with the arrangements.
We'd certainly recommend to others.
