Abraham’s House was exactly what we needed for our holidays!
We were 3 families with our children and the house proved to be specious enough for all 10 of us. The shady garden and the big sized pool was very cooling and relaxing in the heat of July. The house is on a high point of Tochni village with hill and sea views in a very quiet location.
We were very pleased to choose this property and with pleasure we will choose it again!

It was my first experience in this kind of accomodation. I came with my family from France. We were 8 persons and no one could have expected such a great experience! the owners were really sweet and helpful. The garden paradisiac to relax after the days of traveling around the island for visits. the houses were ready and clean when we arrived. we all had a great time and for sure next time we come back to the same place! a big thx to Lena&Avraam!
Thank you for your nice words about us and for choosing our house for your family to spent their holidays in Cyprus. All of you were so nice people and thank you for being such a good guests!
All the best to you and your family and I hope to see you again!

The house is a well looked after traditional Cypriot stone build house with specious rooms and large yards and gardens.
This house’s Location is ideal for exploring Cyprus and the pool in the middle of a nice garden is all you need after all day trips.
The price was reasonable compare to other choices we had before we book.
We definitely were happy to book this property.
Guillaume thank you very much for spending your holiday in our house and for the nice words you wrote about us in your review. It was a great pleasure for us to meet you and your excellent family. All of them were very nice and polite!
I wish you and your family the best and I hope to see you again!

Abraham’s house swimming pool and garden was a paradise for us and our children. The house is at the top of the Tochni village and the view is really stunning. Very good location with easy access anywhere… Over all an excellent property to enjoy holidays in Cyprus.

Very nice specious house in a reasonable price. With very nice swimming pool and big garden and not far from a very nice beach. Very nice and helpfull owners. We had a nice holiday. We reccommend this house.

When we arrived at the airport we gave the owner of the house a call. He gave us very clear instructions where to meet. The owner and his wife are wonderful people, they showed us the beautiful house and told us where to find things like the restaurant and the supermarket. In the house there were leaflets about activities on the island. If there are any questions left the owners are always prepared to answer them, they go the extra mile and will do anything to make your holiday a success.
The house was clean and well equipped. We didn’t do too much cooking, we only used the poolside barbeque. The inside area of the house is not the biggest, but who wants to sit inside on a lovely sunny island?! The garden is huge and very well maintained. There are fruit trees and plenty of shade. The pool is not your average plunge pool, it’s a decent sized pool with a shallow part and a deep part. We really had a great time! A nice extra was the owners’ dog “Zorro” a sweet little thing, unfortunately he didn’t fit in my hand luggage)
I would advice this accommodation to anyone and I’m pretty sure I will go back and stay longer next time.

The best thing about this property is the outside space - the roof terrace with lovely views across Tochni and to the sea the patio area shaded morning and evening and the garden (shared with the owner) with its lovely pool and grassed area. Abraham and his wife are very helpful, and stay out of your way.
As a party of seven (with one in a cot), I have to say we found the inside areas slightly cramped. The bedrooms themselves are a good size, but the kitchens/living room areas are small, and the kitchens could do with a few more utensils if you want to do any serious cooking.
Location is good for exploting the south coast of the island.

We had a lovely stay and a wonderful time, the pool area and garden exceeded our expectations. The town of Tochni is very nice but small.

the owners - abraham and his wife were so helpful and kind to us and we can say we have new friends in tochni!
the swimming pool in the middle of the garden with all kind of fruit trees.... we cant wait to come again and stay in abrahams house.
we recommend this house for anyone looking for a quite home away from the crouds but still near the wonderful beach and other interesting sites in cyprus.

As soon as arrived we were pleased from the warm welcome we had from Avraam and very happy afterwards how well we were looked after during your stay. The house was better than we expected and from what we have seen in the website and it was good value for money. Nice pool well looked after garden and a comfortable house is all you need for a relaxing holiday. We shall definitely recommend this excellent house to our friends.

We and our 2 children had an excellent time at Abrahams House. The fun was endless in the pool and we loved relaxing under the trees in such a very peaceful environment. We have also liked Governor’s beach A very nice beach 10 minutes drive. We recommend this house especially to families with children.
Review submitted by Karen from Cardiff (Submitted: 13 Aug 2008)
We stayed in July/August 2008 three adults and two children of 8 & 4.
We loved this house and it was even nicer than we expected. Abraham and his wife were very kind and went out of their way to make sure that we had everything that we needed. The pool is beautiful, and there are lots of shady places to relax and tables to eat at. Having three bathrooms was an added luxury.
We loved Tochni and the local taverna. However, we would only recommend it to someone with a car, who wants a quiet holiday and is happy not to be near a beach (15 mins drive).

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks at Abrahams House. we were welcomed late at night by Avraam & his wife. The villa and its surroundings were very pretty and the pool area was super. Avraam made us very welcome and anything we asked he arranged for us. The villa is situated up a long hill & the views were beautiful. The shop at the bottom of the hill had most of our needs, though there was no large supermarket for some distance. Overall we had a super holiday, we were made very welcome and the children loved the two dogs Zorro & Dolly. As we were there at the hottest time of the year the only thing we would of liked was the air conditioning to be in the whole of the villa and not just the bedrooms as we did find it very hot cooking in the kitchen. However value for money was excellant and we have returned to England with many happy memories....

If you are looking for a relaxing place, far away from crowded beaches and traditional tourist attractions, then this is the place. The only thing you hear is the the birds and the wind. The garden is very well kept with trees like apple, orange, almond, plums etc. The trees not only give great fruit but also brilliant shade. We spent
3 weeks at Abrahams House with our family with three kids. The pool is of very high standard and the warm climate gives warm water temperature. There are also plenty of activites like diving, hourse back riding etc. The mountins has exiting waterfalls and they are not to far away by car. We had 10 minuts of rain in 3 weeks! The people are very friendly and honest ank speeks very good english. We strongly recommend Abrahams House especially for families with kids.

Abraham's House is a special place! This is a home from home but so much better…It’s a beautiful place to spend your holiday. Situated at the top of the picturesque Tochni Village with a huge fruit garden and the pool in the middle is all you need after the long trips we were organizing every day visiting so many places of interest. A good beach is only 10 minutes away, and if we had some time in the afternoons we were going as the children liked it very much. Tochni is peaceful and traditional village and here you get the feel for the real Cyprus. We strongly recommend all thee traditional restaurants in Tochni…they all serve excellent food! We recommend Abrahams house for those who just like to relax either to travel to see a lot of Cyprus. The place is perfect for families with children who prefer to stay out of the overcrowded tourist centres. We are looking forward to go back again…

My husband and four of our children had a lovely holiday at Abraham's house in Tochni. It was so peaceful and a real haven to come back to after busier days out. We loved sitting relaxing under the fruit trees and had many hours of fun in the pool, with a treat being a late night swim. We enjoyed all the different areas of the property, eating at the roof top table with the amazing views of the surrounding country side, reading by the pool or playing cards on the terrace out side the apartment. Abraham and his wife were so welcoming and friendly as were their two dogs, Zorra and Dolly who kept us entertained on various occasions. We really liked being able to wander in to the village to the shop and to eat at the two tavernas and found everyone we met very friendly. Thank you to everyone in Tochni who made us so welcome and to Abraham for use of his property, we had a great two weeks!
Review submitted by Nir from Israel (Submitted: 9 May 2006)
We were 2 families, each with 2 small children that booked the entire villa. Our family took the larger apartment and it was a real treat. Having dinner for both families at the courtyard was extremely fun.
The 2 apartments have an enclosed 60 m yard which was separated from the big yard with the pool. Therefore the kids could play there safely without us worrying for them as we would have been if they would have been playing near the pool.
The house may look modern but it is actually a renovated house 280 years old which was restored in a strict way to preserve the original look. This has also made the experience of staying in it a great treat.
And finally, the house owner - Avraam - is living just upstairs and was very helpful with guiding us as to where to travel in Cyprus.

The apartments are adjacent to the owner's house and being stone-built keep at a steady temperature. There is a lovely view across the village and in the distance out to the sea from the balcony above the apartments and there is a swimming pool surrounded by fruit trees in the fair-sized garden. The situation is very convenient, being only 5 minutes' drive from the motorway yet in a peaceful traditional village. The village has the amenities of a shop and three restaurants.
Price a little high as the apartments have no dishwasher or washing machine.
The owner is very helpful.
Dear Mrs. Wise,
Thank you for being such a good clients and thank you for the nice words about my house! However I am afraid that you are mistaken about saying that there was not a washing machine; there is a washing machine in the yard next to the pool shower which I think I have shown it to you on your arrival. If I had forgotten to show it, you could have ask me, as I have many times asked you if you would need anything I would be glad to help. There is not a glass washer in the apartments and we do not advertise that we have one.
Greetings from Cyprus!

We had two outstanding weeks in Cyprus. Abraham`s House fulfilled our expectations in all ways. The location in the unspoiled village of Tochni is perfect for those, who like to make day-trips to the archeological sites of Pafos, Amathous or Kourion and to the cities of Nikosia, Limassol and Larnaca. The Motorway is just a few kilometers away, and so you reach nearly everything within max. 1 hour.
Abraham`s House has a beautiful garden and pool with sunbeds and umbrellas, so the lazy ones can relax perfectly.
The owner looks after his property, is very friendly and helps in every
We absolutely recommend this accomodation for self-caterers, who either like to see a lot of Cyprus or just like to relax. A very nice location
for families, too.
We are looking forward to come again!

Avraam's house felt like an oasis - we loved the daily trips to the local shop, and the bar in the neighbouring village, Kalavasos is amply supplied with cards, dominoes and kids fare ( the Bridge Tavern there served excellent veggie food too). We enjoyed every kind of beach and the snorkelling trip with Avraam on his boat was a real highlight, thank you. Cool house, beautiful garden, crystal pool and mad, friendly dogs. And Avraam was a lovely host - charming , generous and really helpful. We will be back as soon as we can for some turtle spotting!

We had a very pleasant week in Avram’s house, and had really good experiences there. Three families with small children, we all enjoyed the well-kept garden full of fruit trees and the clean and fresh pool and the kind hospitality of Avram and his nice dogs, Zorro and Dolly. The village is quiet and charming, and spectacular. I can recommend the three restaurants in the village with confidence. We travelled all around the island by rented car (it is a must to have one!) but did not find better food anywhere! I can recommend the place to those who prefer to stay out of the tourist centres.
Review submitted by Christina from Abraham's House (Submitted: 10 Apr 2005)
What a beautiful place to spend our time! Tochni is such a picturesque village and Abraham's House was a special place. With views of the village and the ocean, waking up and standing on the veranda was breathtaking. The tradional stone style of the house was great. Avram is a very gracous and helpful host. His dog, Zorro, was just as welcoming. We wish we could have stayed longer!

If you want a holiday that is home from home but so much better, you could find nowhere better in Cyprus than Abraham's House in Tochni. Your host is charming, friendly, helpful but leaves you to yourself if you wish or helps if you would like. The house is beautifully equipped in lovely surroundings and well cared for with everything any guest could wish for including a lovely swimming pool. Although not beside the sea, a good beach is only 10 minutes away and Tochni is peaceful and traditional so you really get a feel for the real Cyprus. It really is exceptionally good value for money but, better than that, you feel special the moment you are welcomed by your host Avraam Zenonos. I long to return, the hardest thing is saying goodbye.
