Where do I begin? Perfect location, gorgeous setting, amazing private roof terrace that you'd be happy to spend your whole holiday on, and a host who goes more than the extra mile to ensure that your trip runs smoothly. It would be almost impossible to not have a lovely holiday here. Everything you might need has been provided and more! Only 10 minutes from the harbour, and with lots of gorgeous restaurants and bars only a few minutes walk away, there's no need to hire a car. We managed easily on buses and the very reliable Stevies taxi service. Cannot wait to return. Book this apartment- you will not regret it!
What can I say? We absolutely loved our stay at this apartment. There was 4 of us (2 adults 2 children), was a bit of a squeeze but manageable all the same.
The terrace is something else, I personally spent most of my time here, taking in the beautiful flowers around me whilst soaking up the sun on the fantastic sun loungers. Also gazing up at the stars of a night - really, I could have spent all of my holiday here!!!
The area in which the apartment is situated is slightly off the beaten track, however, within a 10 minute walk you have access to the most beautiful taverna's which are all reasonable in price. The food, drink and atmosphere of each and every place is fantastic.
The harbour is a good stroll away, however, we opted to buy a weekly bus pass for 20€ (7.50€ for kids) which are ideal if your looking to travel further afield.
Andrew was contactable 24/7, nothing was too much trouble, he was an amazing font of knowledge and fantastic help whenever we needed him. He's a star.
The pool is very clean, we were basically the only people to use this for the whole 14 days that we were there. The parrot next door is hilarious and made us laugh each day, as Andrew states, he adds to the tropical feel of the place.
We will definitely return here, we loved every minute, I'm am absolutely gutted to be home.
P.S. Always get a Stevie's taxi from the airport, google them before you arrive in Paphos and book - don't make the same mistake as us!!!
Just returned from a week away in sunny Cyprus. We were looking for a base to stay which was walkable to the seafront, but was also quiet, and this was perfect. It's a 20 minute walk to the main tomb of the kings road, (or 8 Euros with Stevie's taxis) try Dias Zeus, the moussaka is delicious. More local and less than a 10 minute walk is Ktima Paphos. Here you'll find the amazing Muse bar, which has great food and stunning views (book a table for sunset), and Fettas tavern, where we tried the 20 dish meze, which was delicious (€17.50 each).
The apartment itself is well kitted out, and Andrew has thought of all the amenities. We appreciated the full kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining and the Aircon for when we needed it. When we needed a break from the sun there was a multitude of dvds, CDs, and books to keep us entertained. The terrace is huge which looks over the pool, and catches the sun all day. Despite being a shared pool it was very quiet, and we only shared it once the whole week.
We used Stevie's taxis all week, including airport transfers (€27 each way) and they couldn't be faulted, always on time, new air-conditioned vehicles, and friendly drivers. We also booked a jeep safari with them for €30 per person. This was an all day experience across the Troodos mountains 150 miles, a highlight of our week, and fantastic value for money. We booked for Saturday which was probably the best day as there is generally less traffic on the roads, so more time could be spent at each location. Definitely opt for the meze lunch for €12 per person, which includes red and white wine carafes!
If you fancy a trip on the sea the Wavedancer half day boat cruise on Fridays is fantastic. This is 11am-3pm and includes a large BBQ lunch, all inclusive drinks, nonstop entertainment, and a swimming stop in Coral bay. Be warned, get there early for a sunbed.
Andrew is very attentive and communitive and promptly responded to any of our questions, which we really appreciated! His personal guidebook is fantastic and provided us with so much useful information (he really went above and beyond). If we get the chance to visit Paphos again we will be booking here!
Brilliant location! Fantastic appartment with massive patio and very lovely pool! Lots of helpful information, directions and guides left by Andrew for us to use!
Muse restaurant/bar is a definite place to visit with great service, fantastic food and breath taking views and literally minutes away from the apartment!
Cannot wait for next year as we will be definitely booking again!
We arrived at the apartment late afternoon, the location is excellent in Paphos old town which is away from the busy harbour. Andrew provides detailed instructions for the location which are easy to follow, together with lots of information on the apartment, suggestions on which restaurants to visit and the Muse is a must as has lovely views over Paphos and excellent photos to take at sunset - the food is good too. We have been to Cyprus many times and this apartment was an excellent find as spacious, clean and a quiet residential area.
As with previous reviews the old town is undergoing a regeneration project, however, this does not interfere with gaining access for any places you wish to visit. We would return to this apartment without hesitation in the future, as had a pleasant and relaxing stay.
