In 2006 I got here to North Cyprus for the primary time. The rationale for the journey was to view and presumably buy an condo at a improvement that had caught our consideration.
Earlier than flying out I had spoken about it to some Cypriots who ran a Barbers store in South London. Once I talked about that the event was close to the city of Guzelyurt, their reply was, “Why do you wish to purchase there, there aren’t any different developments, it is simply an empty seaside close to a sleepy city”. This was music to my ears and I needed to go and see, as a result of for somebody searching for a improvement that has potential, it ticked all of the containers.
Safe Pre 74 title that may rise in worth regardless of the ultimate political end result, a brand new location however with infrastructure already being improved, undervalued market, empty seashores. Add to that the truth that I knew there was some severe Israeli funding. I flew out the following week and booked right into a lodge within the stunning city of Kyrenia. The subsequent day I used to be taken out to the placement of the event. The drive took us alongside roads lined on both facet by orange and lemon groves, the timber have been in blossom and the scent was intoxicating. We drove by way of the city of Guzelyurt the place the locals went about their enterprise within the late morning solar as described by my Cypriot mates.
After one other 5 minutes we got here to the village of Gaziveren and headed down a bumpy observe to the coast and the Morfu bay. We arrived in an empty discipline near the ocean and my information knowledgeable me that we have been standing on the positioning. I nonetheless bear in mind the sensation of pleasure at this stunning panorama and seeing the ocean a deep turquoise within the noonday solar. To the left I seen a farm shed of some variety and made a psychological notice to make use of that as a reference level for future visits simply in case my information had introduced me to the fallacious discipline. I returned to the lawyer’s workplace and organized a deposit, feeling assured that right here was not solely a great deal, but additionally one thing particular. If ever there was a possibility to come back in on one thing at floor stage, this was it. It is now 2010 and the primary stage of the event, which included our condo is completed. To face on the balcony and look out to the Morfu bay glistening within the solar is a real pleasure.
To the South and solely about 15 kilometres away are the Troodos Mountains, to the North, is the Kyrenia vary. Stage two is effectively underneath manner. The properties at the moment are promoting for greater than the preliminary buy value though effectively under what I really feel they need to attain. The TRNC authorities are actively selling the Morfu bay as an space for the event of Tourism and are already bettering the infrastructure. There are motels deliberate, the golf course is to be prolonged and improved and an Eco village constructed. The motorway from Nicosia and Ercan airport is nearing completion and a brand new crossing is being opened that may make Pafos airport a forty five minute automotive journey away.
At Aphrodite Beachfront the semi Olympic pool completed, the restaurant is open and the gymnasium and sauna are working. The seaside on the entrance is having a breakwater point constructed and shortly work will start on the water sports activities centre and the indoor pool. For now, I can nonetheless reassuringly see the farm shed which was my reference level though that may quickly be gone. We make selections in life, some good, some not so good. This one appears to be like to be firmly on the great facet, and I’d say to anybody seeking to buy on this island to contemplate Aphrodite Beachfront. This space remains to be ready to take off and now is an effective time to look to make a deal.
