We stayed for two weeks and had a fantastic holiday. The house has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The location is in a quiet suburban area of paphos which is ideal for peace and quiet but close enough to the restaurants, bars.The local ammenities are all close at hand and the kato paphos town and beaches only a 10 min walk. The communication with Cyprus 7 before and during the holiday was great. We had an amazing stay in this property.Hesperides Gardens is an excellent complex in a great location. The very thoughtful owners had supplied everything to make the place a home from home.The accomodation is furnished to a high standard and well air conditioned.The rear of the property is complimented by a large patio area that is superbly placed next to the lovely poole which was great for keeping an eye on our children yet private too. We enjoyed our stay so much, would highly recommend this place for a great holiday. Thank you for being so thoughtfull which made our stay memorable.

Lovely apartment next to an amazing pool surrounded by grapefruit trees and gardens.
Weather fantastic! This was our first holiday to Cyprus so hadnt expected it to be so warm this late in October.
Welcome pack was really appreciated, thank you. Jacqui just a phone call away if you need anything.
Quite a walk to the harbour but its flat and we just took our time. Well worth it though as there are so many restaurants and bars to choose from and coming back is easy after a good meal and drink or two. We did eat in a few times though.
Just hope we manage to come back very soon.

What a brilliant house!! We stayed for two weeks and had a fantastic holiday. The house has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The location is in a quiet suburban area of paphos which is ideal for peace and quiet but close enough to the restaurants, bars etc if you want to get a quick taxi drive (Stevies Taxis) in to the harbour area. The communication with Cyprus 7 before and during the holiday was great.
I would only make one suggestion and that is a BBQ on the terrace for guests to use would have made a brilliant house an amazing one as my husband would have cooked instead of me!!

We had an amazing stay in this property. Just a word of warning it gets booked well in advance. We tried to book for next year but it was already booked. Perfect for a family holiday. Owner was very helpful. Thanks so much see you again soon.

We very much enjoyed our holiday and are thinking about coming back next year.
The cleaning of the pool was somewhat disappointing, too much dirt at the bottom and too many bugs floating around in the pool.
A big minus that there is no dishwasher. The dishes must been done immediately, otherwise aunts all over the kitchen.
Good location, security and great cooperation with car rental, brought to and from AirPort with car waiting outside apartment, excellent service.

Modern well equipped townhouse, good location but would recommend either a hire car or use Stevies Taxis (who were excellent) to get to the harbour as it is a long walk.
House exactly as described in details you wont be disappointed, pool area great too. House and grounds immaculately maintained.
It was very quiet around the complex in May, we would happily stay again for our main Summer holiday.
Have recommended the house to family and friends as we were that impressed.

Had a lovely week in Cyprus at Hesperides Gardens. THe accommodation is as described and well equipped. Great location beside the pool which we all enjoyed. The pool area is well maintained and was quiet no rush for sunbeds here. It is a good 25 minute walk into paphos although we enjoyed this and it does mean that you can enjoy all the lovely food without any worries!!! THe taxi company recommended by Simon was excellent picking us up at the airport and taking us back although we did find all the taxi companies reliable and friendly. If you want to explore surrounding area a car would be useful although bus service good. Simon and Jacqui both very helpful during our stay. If you want accommodation that is well maintained and not part of a huge holiday complex youll enjoy this property.

We were lucky enough to book this beautiful house for a two week holiday from which we have just returned. The house itself is perfect - everything as described and all we could have wanted and more. The house is spotless and very well cared for. Its location within the complex, we thought, might be the best, being slightly elevated and since the picture was taken, the greenery has matured and offers a great deal of privacy. We could not fault it and not only was everything as described, there are plenty of helpful notes and instructions so all is clear and we were very well informed throughout the duration of our stay. We were delighted with the house and the service we received from the owner and would have not hesitation in recommending this property to friends and family, and also booking again........which we intend to do. The pool is stunning, the area quiet and the weather was delightful and we felt very safe. Our favourite restaurant was the typical Cypriot Taverna in the town, over 30 years old and famous for their Souvla (and their fillet steaks). All food here was delightful - some of the best food we have eaten anywhere. Had we found it early enough, we would have eaten there more than the three times we did. New Paphos is rather maze like so its worth looking around as even on our last few days we were finding more bars and tavernas which we had not come across before. Found a lovely cocktail bar which soon became a favourite haunt - quite contemporary, cool and quiet - and delightful, fresh cocktails were always available. The recommended taxi companies both offered a brilliant service as did CTT Car hire. We know there is more to explore and want to come back so very much. We laughed and sunned for the most relaxing two weeks and were greeted by local people who were always smiling, helpful and ready to assist if we needed. Most definitely a favourite holiday destination..........and we cant wait for next year. Simon - thank you very much for everything.............it really was awesome!

We stayed for two weeks in August with our teenage children. The property was clean and big enough (especially as werent inside it that much) but the main attractions were outside - we loved the location close to the pool and the shady outside terrace where we could have all our meals. Its not too far to walk into Paphos itself and we always felt safe doing so and letting the teens walk home (after us!). The pool was clean and even in peak season not too busy with plenty of sunloungers. We enjoyed boat trips and drinking coffee / cocktails at the harbour. Wed recommend a car if you want to get out and about a bit, but it isnt 100% necessary. Overall a great holiday that suited all of our different tastes within the family.

Had a lovely week here on our family holiday. The house is very well equipped, well laid out ,and was spotlessly clean. We arrived late so the welcome pack supplied by the owner was very welcome. A part shaded patio area was well used for breakfasts and lunchtime snacks. The pool area is just a few metres down from the patio area, and while always busy never seemed crowded, and there was never any problem acquiring sun loungers in the positions we wanted. There seem to be a lot of owner occupiers in the complex who were very friendly and always keen to give advice about places to go, and places to eat, etc.. There was a genuinely friendly atmosphere around the place. On this note, the owner has a Review book in the house where guests are invited to add cards and reviews from restaurants they have visited, this was very useful. The house is situated in the Universal area of Paphos and is about a 20 minute walk from the main tourist and harbour areas. We walked in most evenings and got a taxi back (8 Euros) There are two mini markets about a 5min walk down the road which we found stocked everything we needed for our stay. I didnt hire a car, but in retrospect it would have probably been a good idea to, as we did seem to do an awful lot of walking - and it was hot!!! All in all we had a super time here and would have no hesitaion in recommending this property. Alan Bell

We really enjoyed our stay at Hesperides and will definately be making a return visit. The property is beautifully furnished and fully equipped with everything you need, it was clean on arrival. We really appreciated the welcome pack as we arrived after midnight. The complex is lovely, well maintained and very secure. We stayed for two weeks in May, it was lovely and quiet and we enjoyed the pool area. The location of the property is in the universal area so we would recommend a hire car.

The property is beautifully furnished and fully equipped with everything we needed, it was clean on arrival. The provision of the welcome pack was a nice touch.
The complex is lovely and well maintained. While we were there it was lovely a quiet and we enjoyed some peaceful time in the pool area. It is also possible to walk to Paphos harbour if you feel inclined!
We really enjoyed our stay at Hesperides and will definately be making a return visit.

Review submitted by ellen from peterlee (Submitted: 14 Oct 2009)
house was very well equiped, decor and furnishings top class. Bedrooms both had plenty of room and storage and beds very comfortable. Complex and pool area very clean and tidy, as well as very quiet. Welcome pack was very well thought out, had all the basics you would need on arrival, and two small convenience stores within a few minutes walk. A 15 minute walk brought you to the start of the main bar and resteraunt area, slightly further to the harbour and beach. Would definately stay there again and will recommend to freinds and family. A big thankyou to Simon, who let us stay on at the house until our departure for the airport( two and a half hours over the normal time to vacate, as no follow on booking) as I was travelling with my elderly parents this was a great help. Also CTT car hire Simon recommends we found to be cheap, reliable, and very helpful, and they will give a free airport transfers when a car is booked for the full length of your stay. The only negatives I can think of is that there is some building work going on in the area at present, and you do back onto a road from which you here some noise, however neither of these spoilt our holiday in any way, it was still very easy to chill out and relax. Overall we had a wonderful holiday, we were a party of four adults of varying ages, and found plenty to do in the resort, as well as the accomadation itself feeling like a home from home.

This was our second visit to the property. Once again the property was of an excellent standard . The welcome pack was very much appreciated as we did not arrive at the property until very late after many hours travelling. We will be booking for the same resort or property for next yaar and would not hestitate in reccomding to family and friends.
The owner Simon Foster is always contactable should you have any small queries which is very reassuring.
If the change over dates could be a little flexible ie weekend we will be rebooking for 2010.

As we walked through the front door of hesperides gardens we did not know what to expect. We were in for a very pleasant surprise. the house was superb and very nicely furnished. There was a welcome pack which was much apprieciated as we arrived late at night. The gardens and pool are a delight and are well maintained. Will book again.

Very nice house with every comfort of home. Lovely terrace looking on to a large swimming pool. Lots of amenities nearby and approx 7 minute drive to Paphos resort and lots of restaurants. An ideal spot to relax in.
Review submitted by Richard from Bishops Stortford (Submitted: 26 Apr 2009)
We (my wife and I and our two children, aged 11 and 10) stayed in Simon Fosters house in Hesperides Gardens for two weeks at the start of April 2009 (over the Easter break) and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
The owner is extremely pleasant and helpful. For instance, we could not find a drying rail when we arrived so we were hanging washing over the balcony rail. Simon called us on our second day to ask if all OK and we mentioned this (it appears the original one was probably nicked from the terrace). The next day the owner’s representative in Paphos called round with a new rail. Small thing but appreciated. Another nice touch was the bits and pieces waiting for us in the fridge when we arrived.
The house is lovely and in the perfect spot in the development for the pool. It was so nice to wander in to make a cup of tea and wander out again to continue sunbathing!
The development opposite Hesperides Gardens was being worked upon so there was some building noise. However it didn’t spoil our holiday as the pool is nicely secluded.
Finally, the car hire firm recommended by the owner was excellent. Picked us up at the airport and dro pped us back as part of the price. Also, as an added bonus, they upgraded our car half way through the holiday as they needed the smaller one. Not sure this can be guaranteed every time though!

House is perfect, very comfortable & very clean, with beautiful furnishings. Perfectly situated for sight seeing.

Great apartment which was very clean. Ideally situated close to the pool which is lovely. Our kids aged 9 & 13 thought the pool was brill . Apartment is well equipped with all you need plus some handy new release DVD,S. These came in handy when we couldnt be bothered to go out to eat. We were contacted both by the owner and local agent to ensure all was OK during our stay, we had no problems at all.Car hire company recommended by owner was good and reliable providing a good service.
Upon research the apartment is a little more expensive than others at the complex. However to be honest I did try to re book for next year to find it already booked.
We had a great holiday and are very likely to return to this complex using this residence if available.

We had an wonderful holiday, the villa was modern clean and extremely well presented. there is a superb swimming pool which was always warm and inviting and easily accessed from the property's own sun terrace.
Within easy travelling distance are the shops and restaurants of paphos there is a local store close by for the essentials and an icecream van arrives at around 4pm each day.

the house and complex were both excellent, the complex is still in the early stages and once the planting matures it will be a fantastic little oasis, will definately be returning.

Review submitted by James from New Milton (Submitted: 26 Jul 2007)
The house was in a great location walking distance to the restaurants, bars and local shop but far enough away that it was quiet and relaxing. It was fully equipped, the owners have thought of everything. The pool was bigger than expected, clean and very warm. The house was spotlessly clean and the beds really comfortable. It is ideal for families and couples. We are booking for next year.

We were so impressed with the standard of the property. The decor and quality of furniture were outstanding. We were met at the airport by the recommended car hire company lead to the property door to door and they even took us to the local shops for provisions. The position of the house in the complex is perfect, right next to the pool ideal for keeping an eye on our children. We had a great break and will be booking next year. Ceri, Graham, Jordan & Aiden
