We stayed at this lovely apartment in September, 2009. We found a well presented, spacious property. The neighbours were friendly and the sunny veranda had seaviews and views looking towards Northern Cyprus. The apartment was very clean and extremely comfortable, a true home from home. Local shops were just a 5 minute walk, as well as the local beach. The resort of Protaras and Fig Tree Bay are only 5 minutes by car. We will certainly be back for another holiday

We were slightly nervous as it was our first private rental holiday. We had no need to be ! The apartement was exactly as described in the advert.The views were stunning, the facilities were all new or clean, the extras we found were a bonus.For us the location was perfect, nice and quite and very relaxing,chris came twice at the begining and the end of our holiday but was only a call away if needed.
Thanks alot we will return

3 weeks Holiday
Review Submitted: July 11, 2009 Date of Stay: June 2009
I chose this property for a 3 week holiday with my wife due to the description of location and facilities as we wished to spend an easy going three weeks. Our expectations were exceeded as the apartment is extremely spacious and is equipped to a very high level. The awnings provided plenty of shade (which was needed in the 35 degrees plus) which made sitting out a pleasurable experience. The UPVC shutters and windows also stopped the interior becoming too hot to the extent the air con is only needed for a couple of hours when the heat becomes "heavier" at night. The view is exactly as shown in the advertisement from any part of the balcony and not some obscure angle. All appliances worked perfectly and the owner Chris made himself available without being intrusive to provide information and ensure all in the property was working fine. There is little else I can say about the apartment except that all around was very quiet due I suspect to many similar properties being second homes.
The apartment is only 10 minutes walk to the tourist strip where there are few bars and restaurants if you want to have a drink without taking a car. There is an Indian and Chinses restaurant plus the normal tavernas through to the one "higher" grade restaurant called Faliros.
The nearest beach is just about walkable for adults but not for quite young children. There are many nice sandy beaches (some with watersports) in short driving distances all run by the local Council which provide sunbeds and parasols to a very a high standard. There are also easily reached flat rock coves and headlands if you want to avoid the busier beaches. Protaras and Agia Napa are 10/15 minutes drive away respectively if you want to experience livelier resorts with Protaras being more family orientated.
It's also worth driving longer distances circa 1 hour to see Nicosia and Larnaka and there are also many other attractions which you will find in guidebooks according to tastes.
A car is essential if staying for over a week to allow you to get around as the bus service is almost non-existent and Taxis are very expensive. Using an online an agent the cost of hiring a medium size car with Air Con provided by a major rental company for 3 weeks was very cheap (much cheaper than the UK) which included all insurances(pick-up and dro p-off Larnaca Airport).
I would recommend this apartment and area to friends for any type of holida - beach, sight seeing, relaxing or a mixture of all three

This is the third time we have rented the apartment and each time it gets better. Our holidays have been wonderful in this peaceful yet easily accesible location. It now feels more like a home from home. There is everything you could possibly want within the apartment. The location, space, cleanliness, comfort of the apartment is great. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Cyprus.
