About this listing
Our kitchen.. the place where we love sitting down and chatting with our guests while we have drinks together
The double room is offered by friendly young couple with their 9 year old child. The apartment is 135 m2,with two wc. The flat is located in the North (Turkish) part of Nicosia, just 15 mins walk from the old city and the Ledra Palace check point (the nearest beach is in Kyrenia which is about 20 mins drive away). From Ercan Airport 20 mins by car and 5 mins walk to main bus station of north Nicosia (Airport shuttle KIBHAS will bring you to Nicosia TERMINAL - the main bus station which is less then 5 mins away from our place).
Families welcome, if you have a kid we can arrange a place without extra charge.
Unfortunately since we are both working people, we cannot serve breakfast. However you are welcome to use our kitchen as long as you leave everything clean. You can also put your staff in our fridge. You are also welcome to make yourself tea and coffee anytime you wish.
Please note that the room is ideal for all seasons except the summer (we have central heating but no air condition).
We'll be happy to give you ideas about organizing your trip. If you would like to hire a car (there is plenty of parking space in front of our building), our place would be perfect. You can use it as 'home' and visit other cities knowing that you will come back to a nice and comfortable place to rest and relax.
Bahar was very nice and welcoming right from the start. She greeted me and my fiancée in the kitchen and offered us a drink and some melon, while we chatted away. She and her husband gave us many tips about what to see in Nicosia and where to eat, also in the close neighbourhood.
The room was clean and tidy and the bathroom is spacious with a huge shower.
In about 15 minutes, you can walk to the old town. Although it's not very far, they even gave us a lift to town.
All in all we had a very nice stay with Bahar and her family (including a small kitten) and we'd definitely recommend staying with her.
Belgin & Bahar are Top class hosts,
Everything was organized and prepared for us. Very kind hosts and prepared all the facilities to make sure we were as comfortable as in our house. The room is big, good bed, it has a fan & anti moskito eletrict device. The internet works fine without issue.
Congrats on the flat, it's quite big and very modern!
On top of our stay Belgin did an extra favour on dropping us close to the turkish border,
If I come back to Nicosia I know where I will stay :)
Thank you Belgin and Bahar for your kindness and accommodation

Bahar has a blessed family. Her husband, son and little kitty (kalinka) are very nice. Our stay there was much more pleasant than we expected. The house is very clean and comfortable, the room is very nice, I simply have no complaints about them. They are cheerful and made us feel like we were in home. We can go from the border w/ south cyprus in ledra street to her house by walk. They even arranged a taxi for us. Bahar is great and provided everything we need during our stay.
We really enjoyed our stay with Bahar and her family in their lovely apartment right in the heart of Nicosia. Bahar's husband came to meet us and spent a lot of time welcoming us and giving us invaluable information about Nicosia. They advised us about local traditional restaurants and couldn't have been more helpful and kind. In retrospect we wish we could have spent more time there. We would highly recommend it to our friends and family. Thank you very much for sharing your home with us
My husband, toddler and I had a great stay with Bahar and her husband, Belgin. They're a really nice couple, and their home is very clean (in addition to overall cleanliness, you could tell the linens in the bedroom were freshly laundered, and they put out fresh towels for us in the bathroom) and also very central to the main old city sights in Lefkosa (a very pleasant 10-minute walk to all the historical tourist sights). Since we arrived late at night and woke up after the hosts had left the house for the day, Bahar left us notes with info about the house, hot water, the Internet, etc. They were very gracious about our inconvenient arrival and departure times, even helping us arrange rides to and from the airport. Definitely recommend their place, and wouldn't choose to stay anywhere else on future trips to Northern Cyprus!
Bahar and her family were very kind and welcoming. The stay was comfortable overall. Bahar allowed my friend and I to have privacy, and she was also very helpful in providing suggestions about things to do around the city. I would recommend anyone to stay at this place.
Also, the place is conveniently located. The main terminal is located only 5 minutes away from Bahar's house, which makes it easy to travel to other places in Cyprus. If you prefer, you can also walk easily to the old town or cross to the Greek side. I definitely enjoyed my stay.
From the start to the end of our visit Bahar and Bilgin made us incredible welcome and helped us with our queries by providing advice and recommendations. Bilgin met us to direct us to their apartment which is very nice and only 10 minutes walk from the walled city. They were happy t engage in conversation and share their experience of Cyprus.
