Here is what some hirers have had to say about their stay at the villa:
"We had a wonderful time. Thanks again for sorting our first few days promptly. We really enjoyed the villa , it's fantastic, everything you need and more, everything thought of. "
(Mrs J.S., Lancs, October 2023)
"Thanks for hiring us your villa - we enjoyed every minute of it. Next time we go will definitely give you a call to rent it again - it was superb. "
(Mr P.L., Kent, September 2023)
"Jasmine has everything you need and more. The indoors is immaculate and well looked after. The owners look after everything and when things break they replace. The pool area is superb overlooking the sea with the most amazing sunsets that you could never get bored of. We stayed in Jasmine 8/9 times and I have photos of the sunsets from every year."
(Mr C.V., Cornwall, August 2023)
"We stayed at Jasmine Villa from the 19th July for two weeks. The villa is extremely comfortable and the pool, garden and patio areas are brilliant with beautiful views of the sea and mountains. The village of Esentepe has everything you need and The Old Barn Restaurant is highly recommended. We have stayed at Jasmine Villa four times now and will be going again. The weather was very hot when we were there and we welcomed the air conditioning in the villa. We highly recommend Jasmine Villa, it was easy to book with all the information given to us about the villa, the area and places to visit."
Mrs R.E., Glos, July/August 2023)
"We have been using Jasmine Villa for 8 + years now, we keep coming back as we love the Villa, it has everything you need, if there are any issues they are dealt with very quickly by Gemma. The pool area is superb, the NEW grass area is lovely and is a perfect place for the sunbeds if the kids are splashing around the pool getting your books wet ! The rear patio area is a nice place to chill out and the top patio has stunning views and is an amazing place to watch the sunset in the evening. We stayed in August 2022 and already re booked for August 2023."
(Mr C.V., Cornwall, August 2022)
"Another wonderful stay at Jasmine Villa! We were concerned we may find many of the local amenities closed following the recent pandemic but we needn't have been. The supermarkets were as well stocked as usual and our favourite restaurants still there (Balti House, Cengiz, Remzi) along with some lovely new eateries (especially Old Barn for full English breakfasts with real pork sausages). We had some Internet issues during our stay but a quick call to the villa agent confirmed they were affecting the whole island. The pool continues to be a massive hit with our children and provides a welcome break from the heat. We would thoroughly recommend visiting the now open Varosha (Maras) area of Famagusta - extremely interesting and the beaches are the best on the island! Jasmine Villa has every facility a family could possibly need (young and older children) and Neil ensures the villa and local area information packs are regularly updated. We have lost track of how many times we have visited but we will keep returning as we've never found anywhere else that compares! "
(Mr & Mrs M, Somerset, July 2022)
"Once again a very enjoyable holiday at the villa. The elevated position of the villa makes it so lovely looking out to sea in either direction. This was a return visit to Jasmine Villa and there has been a considerable effort and expense put into upgrading the surroundings and equipment available for your comfort, especially the new loungers and parasols around the pool and upper patio. The new artificial grass area has totally changed the outlook of the garden, and makes it look like a home from home."
(Mr & Mrs M.W., Clackmannanshire, Scotland, June 2022)
"The villa was stunning - it had everything that you would want. The villa and pool area was lovely and clean. The information in the villa was first class and the communication between myself and Neil was first rate - any questions answered very quickly over and above what you would expect."
(Mr M.K., Scottish Borders, Scotland, May 2022)
"My family and myself enjoyed our summer break (July-Sept) in this very comfortable villa. It is everything you need and we liked to enjoy our evenings by the pool or on the rooftop. The sunsets are most beautiful. All very clean and garden very attractive. My children enjoyed many games to play!! We will come again...thank you to all and especially to Gemma and Eray (our local agents) for all your help."
(Mr M.T., Lefkosa, TRNC, September 2020)
"Many thanks again for our stay at Jasmine, we all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The outside area is very spacious, very quiet and private, with a fantastic sea view. Plenty of good restaurants close by in driving distance. We have already booked for two visits next year."
(Mr & Mrs M.W., Clackmannanshire, Scotland, September 2019)
"Loved the new bbq and new shower. As always the villa was perfect and looking forward to next year."
(Mr C.V., Cornwall, August 2019)
"Our third stay (in as many years) at the wonderful Jasmine Villa - our children now call it their Cyprus home! The boosted wifi signal to cover the upstairs rooms was useful as was the new garden shower - the owners think of everything. We would recommend the local Stone Castle and Balti House restaurants in particular. We also visited the turtle conservation project at Alagadi Beach one evening and got to see green turtles coming on to the beach, laying their eggs and heading back to the sea. This was a wonderful experience which we would highly recommend if you visit at the right time of year. A day out enjoying the waterslides at Club Acapulco is good fun although it makes you appreciate the peace and quiet at Jasmine Villa when you return. As ever, a wonderful holiday spent at a beautifully appointed villa."
(Mr & Mrs M, Somerset, July 2019)
"We stayed at Jasmine villa for 3 weeks from May 30 2019. Very private, great views, pool around 31 degrees each day, just a few minutes to supermarket and around 20 minutes to Girne. The sunset from the villa is a sight to behold. Great value for money. Owners are easy to deal with so, if you want a great holiday in North Cyprus, this villa rates highly; this is now our third year."
(Mr D.D., Australia, June 2019)
"Lovely villa, with fabulous views especially from the roof top terrace. Had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Looking forward to coming back in September."
(Mrs B.D., West Yorkshire, May 2019)
"Villa is amazing, location fantastic and restaurants are great value and friendly. Given the time of year we went it was very quiet. Personally I would like to see restaurants etc a bit busier, more social. We will definitely return but at a warmer time of year probably and possibly with friends to make better use of the amazing outside area of the villa."
(Mrs J.H., West Sussex, October 2018)
"We had a great time and villa was lovely. Will keep your number and when we go again will try and book with yourselves."
(Mr P.L., Kent, September/October 2018)
"The villa was lovely. We've had an excellent 2 weeks holiday. Thank you. "
(Mrs L.J, Pembrokeshire, Wales, September 2018)
"Amazing villa with comprehensive documentation provided on all the local attractions. Acupulco Hotel resort with its waterpark - just 14 minutes drive away - is well worth a day trip at only about £30 for a family of five. "
(Mr S.H, West Sussex, August 2018)
"A lovely villa, everything we needed, very spacious. Lovely location and will return."
(Mrs S.G, Oxon, August 2018)
"4th visit to Jasmine Villa. Just come back from a three week stay - there is nothing that I would change - its absolutely outstanding and the views are stunning. The villa itself has everything to make your stay perfect. The only thing that ruined my three week stay was - leaving! Definitely will be going back next year."
(Mrs B.L, Manchester, June/July 2018)
"Thanks for the use of your villa, our daughter and husband truly enjoyed their time at the villa with one complaint - three weeks would have been better than two! Your pool cleaners should be commended for keeping the water in perfect condition."
(Mr D.D., Australia, June 2018)
"Another wonderful holiday at Jasmine Villa - we will be back!"
(Mr & Mrs M, Somerset, May 2018)
"We loved Jasmine Villa, it truly is a home from home. Clean, well laid out and the owners have catered for everything you'd need to have a great holiday. The pool was lovely and the views were just amazing. I must also mention the communication. Replies from Neil to questions were quick and detailed with some great advice thrown in. Thank you for a great time and see you again soon."
(Mr S.M., Leics., October 2017)
"Third stay at villa, booked my fourth stay within 4 days of my 2 week holiday. Perfect villa, perfect location - there is nothing about Jasmine Villa I would change. Perfect for families and perfect for couples. Very clean on arrival, could never imagine staying anywhere else other then Jasmine Villa."
(Mrs B.L, Manchester, September/October 2017)
"It was like returning home. Jasmine Villa has everything needed for a relaxing, stress free holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay again. The views at sunset were a delight to watch in the evenings. We stayed towards the end of August, and so it was hot, but the elevated position ensured some breeze to help cool us down!"
(Mrs F.J., Oxfordshire, August 2017)
"We had a lovely holiday. Your villa is outstanding and I would recommend anyone to stay there. "
(Mrs K.L, Lancashire, July 2017)
"I stayed at Jasmine Villa at the end of June 2017. Our stay was perfect; the villa was exceptionally well equipped, very nicely furnished, clean, and very well maintained. The location is lovely and quiet. There is a beautiful view of the sea from the villa which was stunning at sunset time. It was really helpful to read all the pre-information, and all the children's equipment was priceless. We couldn't ask for more."
(Ms C.R., Central Europe, June/July 2017)
"We had a great time - villa, pool, and location were just what we needed."
(Mr D.D., Australia, June 2017)
"The villa was perfect in every way. Everything had been thought of so, after a stressful journey with 2 young children, it did not take long to relax! The variety of children's toys and games were much appreciated by our children when they weren't in the beautiful swimming pool. There is an extensive choice of local eateries - we tried most of them and never had a bad meal. The children were always made to feel very welcome too. Your beautiful villa was everything we had hoped for and more. In summary, we will be back and looking forward to it already! "
(Mr & Mrs M, Somerset, June 2017)
"Jasmine Villa was well presented, well equipped, very comfortable and just perfect for a peaceful holiday. A home from home experience. Booking and information was first class, questions answered efficiently, nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended. "
(Mr & Mrs D, West Midlands, May 2017)
"This is our second time at Jasmine villa (21/4/2017) and our 11th in Northern Cyprus. Jasmine Villa has everything to make our holiday perfect - the villa itself is absolutely outstanding and the views are stunning. The only regret I have is not finding this villa on my first visit because this would be my 11th visit to Jasmine Villa. I try to visit family in Northern Cyprus twice a year and could not imagine staying anywhere else. The villa was spotless when we arrived and the pool area is absolutely gorgeous. There is everything you could possible need my husband and I had a quiet and peaceful holiday - just what we wanted. My son and his family are visiting Jasmine Villa in July, on my recommendation, as not only is the villa ideal for peaceful holidays, it is the perfect place for families with children. The owners have thought of everything; there is not one thing I would change about Jasmine Villa - it's just perfect. "
(Mrs B.L, Manchester, May 2017)
"We had a brilliant week at Jasmine Villa. Forty minute drive from Ercan airport (would advise against arriving in the dark if renting a car). Beautiful, spacious villa with everything you need. Big pool with plenty of loungers."
(Mr J.R., West Midlands, October 2016)
"Thank you for all the help you gave in organising our stay and travel arrangements, it was much appreciated. The house suited us well and was a good base to explore from and was very well equipped for all our catering needs."
(Mrs A.O'M., Oxon, October 2016)
"We had an amazing 2 weeks at your villa and thoroughly enjoyed our stay yet again. Thank you again for allowing us to stay at your villa. We are looking to come back again next year."
(Mrs E.H., Kent, September 2016)
"Well this is our 4th visit in three years and we still love Jasmine Villa. They always look after the villa and improve it every year. They really care about their guests and have a great person locally to deal with any issues. This is a real home from home. We have already booked for next August. Neil is very helpful and deals with queries really quickly. Ask him for his opinion and he will share his extensive knowledge of the area. Looking forward to next year."
(Mr C.V., Cornwall, August 2016)
"We had an absolutely wonderful holiday in Jasmine Villa - very comfortable and fresh villa. Good bedrooms and baths, no problem to sleep 8 persons. Nice big kitchen and livingroom. No disappointments, everything is just as described in ad. Excellent friendly service by owner and local agent. Good inexpensive restaurants nearby. Locals of Northern Cyprus friendly and helpful."
(Mrs M.S., Sweden, July 2016)
"I could not have wished for a nicer villa - the location was perfect; the pictures do not do this villa justice. The villa has everything needed for family holidays, or peaceful breaks. I really couldn't get over how much you all have thought about family holidays - cots, monitors, pool toys, everything. There are plenty of restaurants around if you want to eat out but, in all honesty, once you're in the villa you really don't want to go anywhere."
(Mrs B.L., Lancs, June 2016)
"I live in the area and rented the villa for some family members. The villa is beautiful and is rented with everything you could want. I would highly recommend this property for couples or large families."
(Mr A.H., Esentepe, North Cyprus, June 2016)
"All our party - 6 adults and 2 children - were delighted with the comprehensive facilities provided at the villa. Anybody raising criticisms, in our opinion, should be classified as "impossible to please" and ignored! My wife and I had spent a most enjoyable holiday last year in Esentepe so we knew we would thoroughly enjoy the general ambience and surrounding facilities."
(Mr I.H., Clwyd, Wales, June 2016)
"We had a lovely time; perfect location; views are stunning; very peaceful place. We will be back later this year."
(Mrs L.P., Kent, May 2016)"Great location with a lovely view. Owner does his job very seriously. Looks after the place, makes sure the upkeep is functioning and keeps improving this and that. We actually wanted to return a few months later, but they closed it for the winter. We surely intend to return."
(Dr I.W., Switzerland, October 2015)
"We stayed 10th - 17 October 2015. Gorgeous weather - only one day rather overcast - which is a big bonus for us from England. The villa is excellent for all our needs. The upstairs balcony is a great asset, even if you spend more time down around the pool. Everything is well thought out and well maintained, with excellent facilities. Particularly thoughtful was the supply of a small number of dishwasher tabs and washing powder - so often you need to buy packets that are far too big. I'm sure families with small children will appreciate the toys and games available. This was our fifth or sixth visit to North Cyprus, which we love, and the area was familiar to us. The villa's location by a gorge means it is not overlooked, and there are cooling breezes from the side. Neil Davis, who does all the booking etc is kind, thoughtful and reassuring - rightly so. We would certainly be very happy to go to this villa again. It is about the best self-catering accommodation we have ever had. The appointed local management agency appears to do a good job, too. Local eateries are perfectly good. The list provided is accurate in our experience. Roll on next visit!"
(Mr D.S., Cheshire, October 2015)
"Had a fantastic holiday, great villa and views. We found the best beach for us was Turtle Beach about 9 mins drive away with really good snorkelling. Your local agent, Gemma, was really helpful in resolving our problem with the fridge."
(Mrs C.S., North Yorkshire, September/October 2015)
"Amazing villa. Everything you can ask for. Esentepe side of Kyrenia has a lot more to offer and explore, so villa was in an ideal place. BBQ was top and was used very much during our stay. Can't wait to come back next year."
(Ms E.H., Kent, September 2015)
"3rd Visit and have already booked the 4th. We love Jasmine Villa and have visited it 3 times in just over a year. The villa is cared for by the owners and they make sure they have everything you need for a great holiday. As things wear out they replace and they stay on top of all the maintenance and cleaning. You will not find a better sunset - sit on the top balcony and watch the sun set on the sea just across the water. The kitchen has everything you need and there is plenty of space to sit in and eat. Or there is a huge terrace upstairs. Looking forward to next year!"
(Mr C.V., Cornwall, August 2015)
"We have enjoyed a wonderful holiday here in North Cyprus and the villa exceeded all our expectations! It was just lovely in every way. The smell of the flowers from the terrace and around the pool, especially in the evenings, was just amazing! The location and the view from the villa are both exceptional. Couldn't have asked for more! Our children thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful pool, the books and games provided. Thank you for everything!"
(Mr & Mrs M.W., South Korea, July/August 2015)
"We really enjoyed our short stay. The house and pool were superb. The whole family including my 87 year old mom spent the day swimming and relaxing."
(Ms I.H., Germany, July 2015)
"Our holiday (6th - 15th July 2015) was excellent and considered a success, certainly in part due to the villa. It was ideal for our family and we would recommend it to others."
(Mrs D.D., Wiltshire, July 2015)
"Stayed here June 2015, party of 5 adults, 2 toddlers and 1 baby. The villa had everything we needed to cater for the children and their various ages, in a quiet village and ideally located to travel (via hire car) to beaches, shops, restaurants and tourist spots. Would stay again and recommend to family and friends. We had a lovely time."
(Mr & Mrs J.H., South Wales, June 2015)
"This is our second trip to this lovely Home from Home. The great thing about Jasmine Villa is the owners think about and care about the visitors. The cupboards in the lounge have games a puzzles, indoor and out, pool toys etc etc. My children spent hours playing a simple hoop throwing game, rather than being glued to computer consoles and tablets. The rooms are well appointed and nicely laid out. The kitchen has everything you need, including a cocktail shaker and a book on cocktails (see they have thought of everything). The location is second to none."
(Mr C.V., Cornwall, May 2015)
"Jasmine Villa was perfect! 8 of us stayed there in May 2015 for two weeks and we did not want to leave. The villa was spacious and never felt cramped, even with 8 of us. It had everything that we needed, very good and very cheap local restaurants and supermarket. The roof terrace was perfect for a BBQ with plenty of space and an amazing view. The owners of villa were very helpful and gave us all the information that we needed before we arrived - the information was so thorough which meant we didn't have to spend too long working out where things were etc. We loved Jasmine Villa so much and cannot wait to go back."
(Ms J.H., Kent, May 2015)
"We were sorry to leave the villa as we found it really lovely."
(Mrs J.G., Dorset, September 2014)
"The villa was great, well equipped and comfortable."
(Ms K.M., Norfolk, September 2014)
"This is a fantastic villa, with great facilities, and excellent value for money. We had a fantastic two weeks, and would stay again, but it's already booked for next year!!
(Mrs F.J., Oxfordshire, August 2014)
"We loved the villa and had a great time. Esentepe is a hidden gem. The only disappointing thing is that you are already booked for August 2015 for which we were planning to re-book. "
(Mr C.V., Cornwall, August 2014)
"Jasmine Villa is a lovely well equipped villa with a fantastic pool and view of the sea. We loved having the local ice cream van arrive outside most days. We really enjoyed the countryside but it's hilly and July is probably too hot to make the most of the mountains. The beaches are very unspoilt and seeing the turtles nesting was a highlight for us. There are some good local restaurants and supermarkets and it is approx 20mins drive to get to the bigger areas - beware of the speed cameras!!!"
(Dr J.H., Lothian, Scotland, July 2014)
"We had, as usual a wonderful time at your villa, and loved the [new] outdoor furniture! This was our third stay at Jasmine Villa and it never disappoints us. Fabulous villa to stay in with every possible comfort and amenity at hand. Highly recommended to all who are thinking about booking."
(Mrs R.E., Glos, June 2014)
"We really enjoyed our time at the villa. The surroundings were amazing. We had wonderful weather and we could visit a lot of things."
(Mme C.L., France, April 2014)
"WONDERFUL! Four spacious double bedrooms, very clean throughout and a perfect little pool. The view of the Mediterranean from poolside and the upper balcony is truly stunning. We were expecting great things when going by the photographs we'd seen of the villa, but it surpassed what we thought we would be getting. I would recommend this villa to anyone - the price is unbeatable too."
(Mr J.S., Notts, April 2014)
"We stayed in Jasmine Villa for one week in November, it was a lovely relaxing break.The villa met all our expectations and all information found in the villa was accurate and informative. We tried some recommended restaurants and they were as described by the owners. There is nothing I can fault about the villa, the location or surroundings. The views were gorgeous as was the aroma of the Jasmine in the evenings."
(Mrs C.G., Surrey, November 2013)
"Best holiday - just so relaxing. Weather lovely and hot and it was so peaceful & quiet. Recommend this villa anytime."
(Mr & Mrs P.P., West Sussex, October 2013)
"We had a very enjoyable time; the villa was lovely as was the weather."
(Mrs M.W., Essex, August 2013)
"We stayed in the villa for two weeks in July, seven of us - all very comfortable and clean with everything we could wish for - toys and games for children and adults too. The villa is beautifully furnished and the pool fabulous with the most stunning views - very highly recommended. In fact the video does not do the villa justice - it is so much better! Also the information supplied to us was excellent from directions to the surrounding area. 10 out of 10 for everything. We are really hoping we shall come again next year.”
(Mrs R.E., Glos, July 2013)
"We had such an amazing time at Jasmine Villa; would recommend to anyone who has small children as the Villa had everything you need. Esentepe is a lovely village - we will be most definitely be returning."
(Mrs L.A., Surrey, May 2013)
"My wife and I along with my daughter and her family had a great time at the villa and we all did more swimming in the lovely pool than we had done in years. We mostly used the local restaurants and found them to be good. I would recommend Jasmine Villa as a holiday home. "
(Mr J.L.D, Scotland, October 2012)
"I think the villa exceeded our expectations; the location and the views are fantastic. The house is also so well equipped. We have stayed at properties where we have literally just had enough crockery and cutlery for one meal which means continual washing up or unnecessary dishwasher usage. It was great to have such a good selection of crockery, cutlery, glasses and cooking utensils. I also really liked that each bedroom is such a good size and well-furnished. We also appreciated all the information provided. We very much hope to be able to make a return visit. "
(Mrs AM.M., Kent, August 2012)
"Thank you for the use of your lovely villa. We had a great holiday and would definitely recommend Northern Cyprus as a destination where you can have a lovely holiday away from most of the downside of mass tourism in the Med! Everything about the villa was in good order and as described on your website - enjoyed local restaurants and scuba diving from Girne."
(Mrs L.M., Cambs, August 2012)
"We stayed for two most amazing weeks at Jasmine Villa - can't fault one thing. Better than we thought - loved it! Would recommend to friends 100%."
(Mrs K.B., Herts, July 2012)
"Myself and 6 other members of my family stayed at Jasmine villa from 12 May 2012 for 2 weeks. We were so impressed with the quality and standard of the villa - it really was a wonderful place to spend our family holiday. The villa was very well equipped with everything you could ever want or need for a family holiday ensuring that all you will ever need to take yourself is clothes and suncream. The villa is ideal for those wishing to enjoy a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle while being close enough to places to see and enjoy. The village of Esentepe which sits to the back and above the villa was a nice place to visit and the locals very welcoming on many occasions offering the family lifts back down to the villa when passing them on the road. Information provided by the owners at the villa of what is on offer locally was a huge help to us as we had never been to northern Cyprus before and that helped us no end to find our way around. I would be more than happy to recommend Jasmine villa to all my family and friends without any doubt."
(Mrs S.C., Lancashire, May 2012)
"Our party of eight adults for week one and seven adults for week two, enjoyed a lovely relaxing holiday at Jasmine Villa and found that its central location enabled us to explore North Cyprus with ease as the main roads are so easily accessible. The mountain and sea views are magnificent and the sunsets are sublime! We found the local amenities to be more than adequate even for such a large party and, while we dined at various restaurants in North and South Cyprus during our stay, there is no need for the less adventurous to even leave the villa area. As the villa is situated close to the old road, we were provided with plenty of opportunity for walks and chance conversations with the local fishermen. We just hope that Esentepe is not allowed to become overdeveloped as that would spoil the current ambience of this quite special part of North Cyprus "
(Mrs L.H., West Yorkshire, October 2011)
"Really enjoyed our holiday. Jasmine villa lived up to the fabulous pictures and expectation. Enjoyed walking up the hill to the recommended restaurants - essential to take a torch for after dinner return unless you particularly like an adventure! Your suggestions of things to do were very useful. My only complaint - the time went too fast!"
(Ms C.B., London, September 2011)
"We had a great stay in your beautiful villa which was one of the best we have ever rented. The villa was perfectly equipped with much more than just the standard equipment and fittings you find at some villas - the location was spectacular too, with easy access to other parts of Northern Cyprus. It was made even more special by the great weather - thank goodness for the pool! It was an excellent place to spend our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We hope to return to Jasmine Villa again."
(Mr & Mrs P.W., Essex, September 2011)
"Had a lovely stay and will definitely be looking to return."
(Mrs C.B., Essex, September 2011)
"We had a lovely stay at the villa in August 2011 and will definitely be back in the near future - have recommended it to everyone we know - lovely affordable holiday!"
(Mrs F.L., Surrey, August 2011)
"Once the water issue* had been sorted it was a very enjoyable holiday and it was lovely waking up to see the sun and sea every day. Thanks again for letting us share your little piece of paradise."
(Mrs J.H., Essex, August 2011)
* failed water pump
"The villa was lovely and had everything you needed, the sunsets were wonderful from the roof terrace and we saw dolphins one evening."
(Mr & Mrs D.McG., Berkshire, June 2011)
"We both had a wonderful time. It was nice to escape everything. Very impressed."
(Mr C.L-S., Lincolnshire, May 2011)
"The Villa has nice location for making trips around. Comparing it to other places which we stayed on both Turkish and Greek sides, the surroundings of the Villa tends to be less developed which is a big plus. The Villa is well equipped for toddlers which makes life easy."
(Mr P.K., Czech Republic, April 2011)
"We had such a fantastic holiday here. The villa is set in an amazing location with all the facilities you need for a relaxing sunshine filled holiday."
(Mrs W.F., West Sussex, Sept 2010)
