Private Guest Rooms - Shared Courtyard House in the Walled City

Located in: Famagusta »
Turquoise House is a traditional Cypriot-style courtyard house in a quiet neighborhood of Famagusta's Walled City. With sea breezes and starry nights, the rooms, porch, courtyard, and roof deck of the house provide plenty of space for relaxing after a day of touring. Visitors have access within walking distance to the historic wall-top for strolls and views, the Mediterranean seashore for fishing/ swimming/ sunbathing, and all the local restaurants and shops of both the old city and the new. Turquoise House is ideally located for parents visiting EMU students, history buffs, beachgoers, and island explorers.

Turquoise House is 120 years-old and is knit tightly into the fabric of the neighborhood. The walls are thick masonry, the floors are tile, and the spaces are bright and airy. The porch is perfect for people watching and sunsets. The porch, roof-deck, and courtyard provide plenty of common space for relaxing and dining.

The rooms are a comfortable retreat for family or friends looking to explore Famagusta or even set up a base for venturing further afield on the island.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND HISTORY
Our house, Turquoise House, is located in the ancient walled city of Famagusta. Our house was the head house of a parcel which was farmed in old times by the relatives of our neighbors and friends. Over time, the farm was divided among children, generation after generation, until the parcel was completely occupied except for small courts and gardens. Walking down the adjacent alley reveals the eras of home construction.
On the other side of Turquoise House is the parish home of the priest who once served the Nestorian Church (just across the street). By narrow streets and easy strolls, guests will wind their way to several other nearby marvels without ever having to leave the Walled City.
Famous on the island for substantial preservation of its walls, gates, ravelins, and moat, visitors to Famagusta and Turquoise House will find it is an easy stroll to these sights as well as to numerous churches, restored homes, archaeological ruins, the port, the harbor, the beach, shopping districts, and great restaurants.

GETTING AROUND FAMAGUSTA AND THE ISLAND
Taxi rides are affordable and easy to come by. Taxi stands are scattered throughout the city and en route taxi drivers readily stop when flagged. You should ask for the meter to be reset but the cost to travel just about anywhere in Famagusta shouldn't be more than 25tl. Short rides outside the walls may be only 5-10tl but those leaving or entering the walled city usually start at 10tl because of the limited routing through the three main gates of the wall.
There are some buses that run on regular schedules. These are not, strictly speaking, public buses, rather they are provided for students and staff of Eastern Mediterranean University free of charge. That said, I have observed tourists and locals taking advantage of this service. Be forewarned that the driver will speak very limited English, the stops are not well marked, and during rush hours the buses will be packed and even skip stops for express service to the campus.
Bike rentals are available but bicycle infrastructure, even lane markings and traffic rules, are rare. We recommend using all available safety equipment (reflective gear, helmets, lights, and bells) and being prepared for drivers to largely ignore your presence.
For intercity and inter-village service, there are dolmuş. These are small buses and vans marked with the names of the departure and arrival cities. Prices vary.
Otherwise, Famagusta is home to several car rental/hire companies. As well, car rental/hire can be secured from Ercan Airport. Please note that cars rented in the north may not be driven across the green line to south. Crossing from the south to the north in a rental car is permitted but additional insurance must be purchased at the border crossing.
