Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Lovely stay in peaceful and beautiful Villa
Stayed in Villa Rockheart in late October 2023 with my wife, daughter and two grandkids, lovely setting and very well equipped accommodation, very comfortable place to stay. The pool and outside areas are superb and the views stunning, the grandkids absolutely loved it and it offered everything you could need. Perfect for our needs and we will definitely be returning, highly recommended.

Fabulous Villa and Views
We spent 2 fabulous weeks with friends at this well managed, spacious, fully equipped villa making full use of the beautiful swimming pool and plentiful sunbeds. We particularly enjoyed the shaded terrace area for drinks and outside dining with direct access from the kitchen, dining room and lounge. The views were stunning to the surrounding mountains and down to the sea from the villa's elevated position. We had a lovely stay and look forward to staying here again.

Fantastic as always
Can't think that we'll ever grow tired of this place, we keep returning and it never fails to disappoint. The villa and pool were more welcoming than ever. We have always been looked after by Allie and Bob. Hoots up the road are always great and there is plenty to do nearby Love this place, cant wait to come back.

Exceptional value for money
We spent a week here in July 2023. I endorse all of the other 5 star reviews. It is a truly gorgeous and near-palatial villa, inside and out, very well equipped, and beautifully situated, being both very near the facilities of the coast yet also nicely private at the foot of a craggy mountain top. The outside seating areas and pool views are especially memorable. The sole minor quibble that I can even think of is that the deep end of the pool is "only" 2 metres deep, which perhaps says it all. Exceptional value for money.

Luxury villa in peaceful setting with stunning views
We had a family holiday at Villa Rockheart in July 2023. We know North Cyprus quite well and we knew that we wanted a quiet location with stunning views. That is exactly what we got. Also, it was a relief to discover that the photos of the property were accurate and if anything did not do it justice. I It's more breathtaking when you are actually there! The large 11m x 5m pool is a major asset, along with the 2 stunning terraces where you can enjoy meals al fresco. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and it is hard to tear yourself away for archeological sightseeing (as we had intented) when the pool area is so inviting. The house itself is highly functional with 4 bedrooms, lovely balconies and high-quality firm beds! A great selection of grocery stores are just a 5 minute drive down the hill. The property is lovingly maintained, we will not hesitate to book again for our next trip

Fabulous villa in an exquisite setting
A real home from home located in beautiful North Cyprus. The villa is gorgeous, fabulous swimming pool and is not overlooked. It’s very quiet, the views of the mountains and sea are spectacular. Lots of seating areas indoors / outdoors which were fab to relax in. The information Allie sent over prior to arriving was brilliant and gave so much detail and recommendations. The flight via Istanbul we would definitely do again. There is lots to do and see but a car is needed, the Karpaz peninsula was beautiful we had golden beach to ourselves! Restaurants nearby were fab Hoots and Gilham Vineyard were 5 minutes away and great food and ambience. There were others nearby but a car was needed, Driftwood another favourite. The IIlgaz bakery fresh bread every morning was a bonus, 5 minutes away. The villa had 4 very spacious bedrooms, Marion was there if we had any queries or issues and dealt with them promptly. Such a fabulous base to explore Northern Cyprus, we look forward to our next visit.

Villa Rockheart
This is the second time we have visited Villa Rockheart and would recommend to anyone. Very spacious and everything you need. A home from home, you have the luxury of the pool outside overlooking the stunning views of the mountains. A car is a must if you want to get about. Hoots up the top also is a must. Lovely food with lovely people. Supermarkets in abundance on the main road at the bottom. No issues at all during the holiday. Marion who manages the villa is very approachable and will help with any queries you might have. We most definitely intend on returning for a third time. Thank you for yet again a lovely holiday

Fabulous Villa in a fabulous setting
Having never been to Northern Cyprus before, but having wanted to for some time, we were keen to ensure that our base would be comfortable and well positioned for our requirements, particularly as we were restricted to just a one week stay. We couldn't have picked better . Firstly, that lovely feeling when you arrive at your destination to find that your property is above and beyond your expectations, and secondly it's position , being both ideal for it's views, and proximity to Restaurants , beaches and other attractions. Regarding the Villa itself ; it really is superb. Spacious, comfortable and with every requirement catered for , we would have been more than happy just to stay there every day if we hadn't already had an itinerary planned. The pool is large and very well kept , and is also lit in the evening , which looks lovely. The outside dining and relaxing areas are excellent and it is hard to choose which you prefer. We enjoyed the terrace dining table for breakfast and lunch, and the outside lounge area for drinks in the evening. I could go on much longer about all the facilities here, but reading other reviews, they all extol them really well and you can be guaranteed that they are as good as they are described. I would like to suggest a couple of things that we really enjoyed . Firstly Hoots restaurant just up the road was so good we visited it twice. The staff are so friendly there , and the food was excellent both in quality and value. Also just up the road is the Gilham Vineyard which has both a restaurant and snack bar. Whilst we didn't eat at the restaurant, we did have lunch at the snack bar and the food and views were lovely. There is a lot to see and do in Northern Cyprus, and we are already planning another and longer visit. When we do, we will definitely be staying again at Villa Rockheart.

Map
About the neighbourhood
Set high above the bustle of the coastal plain, Ilgaz is a tiny dream of a Cypriot village, a centre for walking the Besparmak (Five Finger) Mountains. On the mountainside just below the village, Villa Rockheart is perched over a green valley with spectacular and uninterrupted views running down to the sea, only five minutes drive away, and up into the mountains behind. There is a restaurant/bar within a couple of minutes walk or it is 5 minutes drive to a wide choice including Cypriot, Chinese, French, Italian, Australian and Indian. The nearest beach is about 5 minutes drive but there are a good choice within 10 minutes. Most with full facilities and watersports. Escape Beach is wonderful for families. Mountain walks begin at the end of the garden and you can walk through the mountains past waterfalls, castles and ruined abbeys and monasteries.
Getting around
A dolmas (bus) can be flagged down outside the property which will take you to either Kyrenia or Lapta or stop at local beaches. It costs less than a pound and runs every hour. We also recommend that you rent a car during your stay to fully explore the island. The car can be delivered and collected from the villa and the rental company also offer airport transfers. I can advise on this. Taxis are easy to arrange and the villa has contact numbers for you to use.
