About this listing
This is a beautiful house in the heart of the Old Town Nicosia, hidden in a quiet and safe neighborhood, but just a stone's throw away from buzzling coffeeshops, restaurants, bars, galleries and workshops.
It comprises of 2,5 stories, with the main bedroom and a bathroom on the ground floor, living space and kitchen on the first floor, an attic and a beautiful roof top. The house is full of natural light with beautiful views of the Old Town Nicosia with its palm trees and minarets for a skyline. So, whether you need a space to relax, have a romantic holiday, or a space of inspiration to work, this is a great place to be!!
The house is fully equipped and furnished for a comfortable stay. There is underfloor heating, wireless internet, cable TV and a sound system which you can use. The main bedroom has an A/C unit.
The bedroom has a double bed, the bathroom includes a bathtub and the kitchen is fully equipped so you can cook if you like -there’s a small grocery shop near by and a fresh goods market every Wednesday and Saturday.
Two people can sleep in the bedroom and two more in the attic, although the attick has no door, so there's not much privacy there! Now there's a proper bed there by the way, the photo is a bit outdated :)
Bed linen and towels are provided.
The central bus station is 20 minutes away on foot and there is a bus stop to the central station 300 meters down the road. There are also public bikes you can use - there's a bike station around 5 minutes’ walk from the house. If you want to rent a bike for your stay, i can try to arrange it for you.
See my guidebook for more details on the neighborhood.
This is it, get in touch !!!
Interaction with Guests
I m usually around for tips and tricks but obviously my guests have all the privacy they want!
The neighborhood is amongst the prettiest in the Old Town. See my guidebook for details!
See my guidebook for details!You can walk more or less everywhere in the old town - everything is 10-20 minutes walk. The central bus station is about 15 minutes walk but there's a bus station 5 minutes from the house. Also there are communal bikes near by.
To get here from Larnaca Airport, you can get a taxi for about 50-60 euro or you can get the Kapnos Airport Shuttle for about 8 euros. Then it's a short taxi ride of about 8 more euro to the house.
* There's a no shoe policy in the house so if you want bring a heavy pair of socks or indoor slippers
* Sometimes (depending on length of stay and temperature), i may ask you to water the plants while you are here- or let me come to water them while you are out :)
* I don't mind smoking a cigarette or two in the living room/ kitchen, but don't over do it. If you are a smoker, let's talk before you book!
* Generally, I really love my place and i expect guests to love and respect it as well :)
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
Great place to stay - location and the actual house. The selling point for us was the incredible terrace you see in the photos. So lovely to sit there in the evening with a beer. Super light and spacious, with lots of fresh air coming through the whole place. Eleni is very easy to deal with (check in and check out). Highly recommended.
There are some really nice restaurants and tavernas within 100 metres walking distance. One called 'D.O.T' has great salads and some of the best pancakes I've seen outside the States. Our daily ritual involved a small hidden cafe on Polyviou, for some coffee and some of the best spinach pie (spanakopita) we've ever eaten - 1 min walking from the house. It is a little hidden, but worth looking for in the morning.
Eleni's place was amazing! It's a beautiful apartment in a great location. Very comfortable and stylish throughout. It was great being in the old city - close enough to the restaurants and cafes but still a quiet neighbourhood so you can actually get some sleep too. We had a great experience and I would highly recommend it.
Appartment was very nice and everything as described here. Quiet neighbourhood, close to all sights, perfectly located. Terrace was brilliant. Unfortunately, we didn´t meet Eleni personally (welcoming by a friend of her) but all communication was nice and straight forward. Thanks for everything, we´d recommend Eleni and the "Amazing House" to everybody
Eleni felt like an old friend, even though we had never met before! Her home felt like "my home", I absolutely loved it, the space and light and beautiful things. Great location too, very convenient and welcoming. I am so happy to have stayed here and will book again if I need to be in Cyprus.
We spent Christmas with our family in Eleni's wonderful house.
It was very pretty, clean, spacious, and excellently located. Everything we needed was there and it was a great place to spend time and entertain guests.
Eleni was helpful, friendly and very welcoming. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting to stay in the Old Town.
L'accueil était chaleureux, Eleni était disponible (malgré notre arrivée tardive), elle nous a expliqué le fonctionnement de son appartement, nous a fait visiter. Le logement est très cosy, on s'y sent parfaitement bien, un peu comme chez soi... Il répond parfaitement aux photos... Le quartier de la vieille ville est magnifique, calme, il fait agréable de s'y promener et le centre est a quelques pas.
What an amazing house owned by an amazing person. The house is very light and airy with lots of space, high ceilings and interesting design features. There are super views from both the balcony and roof terrace. The modern, uncluttered space and quirky contents perfectly reflect Eleni’s warm personality. As an actual home, it does feel like a home away from home. Nothing was too much trouble for Eleni, who struck a perfect balance between being available and respecting her guest’s space.
