“Loved it... Stay away.... it's ours, all ours!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We've visited this area of Cyprus a few times and always enjoyed ourselves... but never as much as this. We loved every minute of our stay in Athena, just about the best equipped self-catering apartment you could imagine.

We still can't think of anything that wasn't provided, right down to all the little things which just make everything so convenient and relaxing..... tea, coffee, sugar, sweeteners, bread, jam, milk, bottled water, orange juice, chilled wine (yes), washing-up liquid, tea-towels, paper towels, hand towels, bath towels, beach towels, face-cloths, toilet rolls, hand-wash, soap, clothes hangers, retractable washing line & pegs, cleaning equipment, iron & board, hair dryer, safe, wi-fi, UK TV... (we even kept up with Coronation street, sad but true!) We could go on (!) but suffice to say, other apartments we've rented really pale in comparison.

The apartment is spotless and very tastefully decorated... it's like a home-from-home and we were soon enjoying chilling out on the spacious balcony in the afternoon sun. (Sigh!)

David and Steve really care about their guests holiday enjoyment and it shows in everything they do. They made sure they were available late at night to offer help by phone to find the apartment, and then to greet us on arrival and explain the various facilities (aircon, fans, TV, internet etc). We had heavy rain for our first few days and a large umbrella was delivered without prompting "just in case we needed it". They even found time to escort us to a couple of gorgeous spots to enjoy the views and a cold beer... we'd never have found them by ourselves (thanks guys).

They've chosen to make Cyprus their home and holiday lettings their business... we think they've made the right choice because they're very good at it!

Would we go back? Well put it this way... you'll find it's not available mid-May next year :-)

“An immaculate, friendly and well positioned apartment”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Steve and David are excellent hosts, we were met at the airport and given a guided tour on our way to the apartment, so that we were familiar with the local area, restuarants and amenities. So much information we struggled to take it on board, but it did gradually sink in and was extremely useful and made our holiday much easier. At the apartment David was waiting to show us round, with the fridge loaded with food and drinks, just what we needed so that we could immediately relax and enjoy our lovely surrroundings.

The property is immaculate, a super spacious balcony which catches the afternoon and evening sun, a comfortable lounge/dining area, a well-equipped and very usable kitchen and nice light large bedroom. The bathroom is extremely well lit, a pleasant change from a dimly lit hotel! Towels, soap, sun cream and usual bathroom necessities all provided, how easy could hoidaying be!

The swimming pool is beautiful and extremely clean and well-maintained. It was good to have the use of the apartments own sun beds, no stress or worries about not having anywhere to sun oursleves.

The apartment is well-positioned only 10minute walk to the supermarket and then a few minutes more to the nearest restaurants. You can also join the coast path, where you can then walk to Paphos Harbour (about a 70minute walk), which we did a few times and enjoyed the scenery and peaceful surroundings. The bus runs regularly but we didn't find the need to use it.

We enjoyed eating good and mainly local food, in good quality restuarants advised by Steve and David. Two of our favourites being Mataxa and the Koh-i-Noor Indian Restuarant. However, our favourite was a real treat, we were lucky enough to join Steve and David a couple of times for excellent food and they really spoilt us when they took us to a hidden treasure in the mountains, which is definitely worth a visit. We also enjoyed an excellent meze with them at the Windmill Resturant in Paphos on our last evening. You just have to order the specialist coffee - a flaming triumph that just has to be seen.

It was lovely to be so spoilt by our hosts and to enjoy using their very well-priced and stunning apartment. We also made the use of their vehicle loan and had a day exploring the mountains and quiet beaches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Athena Apartment and will definitely be returning.

“First Class Self-Catering Accommodation & Service”

person found this review helpful

In terms of a full review of the apartment itself and the facilities on offer, I think "Loonygan" from Milton Keynes (reviewed 26th June) has pretty much covered it all !!! (Excellent review by the way) :)
Hubbie & I had a first class stay at the Athena Apartment. We booked last November after our last visit to Cyprus due to the favourable comments of holidaymakers on the plane home and we were not disappointed. We secured an earlybird booking price (£285 for the week) and got flights seperately through Thomas Cook. Steve (ex Police) and David (Chef) certainly run their business well as you can see from all the comments. We were kept in touch with our booking via email and on landing, met Steve outside who drove us back to Regina Gardens. There, we met David and they both showed us around the apartment which was absolutely SPOTLESS! We had bread, milk, juice, condiments & a very welcome bottle of wine on arrival and as reviewed before, there is everything you will need for your stay there (washing machine a great bonus). Personal sunbeds were an extra nice touch and the huge balcony/views of the gardens made for many a relaxing evening in the sun. Whilst there we booked a trip on a boat called the "WaveDancer" to make use of all the glorious sunshine. It cost 48 Euros each, pick up was outside the Venus Beach just down the road and if you fancy a day out, this is recommended. Food was delicious, open bar and great family run business. Bookings made on the sea-front by Paphos harbour. Other than that, we made full use of the pool area for relaxing. Overall, I don't think I have enjoyed a chilled out holiday on a self catering option as much as this and cannot sing Steve & David's praises enough for being such great hosts. We will most definately be booking again which hopefully, wont be too long away! Thanks guys. :)
