Welcome Chez Coco! This lovely studio that has just been renovated is nestled in a valley of banana plantations, orange & mandarin orchards and fig trees and is ideal for couples or singles looking for a cozy, quiet and economical place to spend their vacation.
There is a hypermarket 1 km away but there is also a mini-market opposite the bus stop which is only 500 meters from the studio.
If you do not hire a car you are more than welcome to join us to shop for your groceries as we visit the supermarket everyday!
Once you arrive you will be given a list of the very best things to visit whilst on the island and how to get there. The studio has fast WI-FI internet connection so you can download any additional information you may require.
The studio is 30 square meters located in a serene residential area of Paphos on a dead end street.
The beach is a mere 800 meters stroll away and you also have immediate access to the highway, for easy transfer to airports or other towns.
If you enjoy taking walks by the sea you have 7km of paved pathways leading all the way to the harbour!
The studio is fully furnished with towels, sheets, pillows, washing machine, fridge with freezer, kettle, microwave, oven, cutlery, crockery, iron, tv, dvd, hairdryer etc…
If desired, there is a split unit that can be used for heating or AC but if you don't like AC then there is a large fan you can use and seeing that the studio is located on the ground floor it is fairly cool.
There is a very comfortable king size sofa bed with an additional mattress cover that makes it feel like a normal bed when you sleep on it.
This studio comfortably accommodates 2 adults and 1 baby cot.
Interaction with Guests
We live on the same street so our guests are always welcome to visit us if they need anything.
Check in is always very personal and we explain everything which is why we do not have a house manual.
I love the fact that we live on a dead end street and that the only people around are our neighbours so we still sleep with our doors and windows open.
I love the fact that we live right next to the beach and that in the summer on a quiet night you can hear the waves rolling onto the beach while you fall sleep.
I love being able to see hundreds of stars and also many shooting stars at night.
I love the orange & mandarin groves, the fig trees and lemon trees that grow in every garden and the banana plantations that stretch as far as your eye can see.
I love this island that is blessed with 340 days of sunshine that warms your soul and makes you feel thankful that you have the privilege to live here and I want to share that with as many people as I can.
There is a bus stop 500m from the house that will take you anywhere you want to go.
The rules are simple:
Treat the property with respect and care just as we treat you!
Cyprus is quite an arid island and water is scarce (we very often get rationed) so please do not waste water unnecessarily.
It is very important to note that the sewage system in Cyprus has narrow pipes and will immediately obstruct if you flush toilet paper, nappies, sanitary pads etc...down the toilet. Please use the bins and bin bags provided in order to dispose of such items.
Please note that electricity consumption is free for up to 10kw per day. Anything over that will be charged according to consumption times the electricity rate. When you are not at home please switch off the lights and AC unit as you would in your own home so as to avoid wasting electricity.
Of course it goes without saying that we do not tolerate the use of drugs or excessive alcohol. This is a family neighbourhood where respect and values are upheld by all tenants.
J'ai passé une excellente semaine chez Paola et Melina, la gentillesse même et très attentives au bien-être de leurs hôtes.
Elles parlent toutes deux français et sont aux petits soins pour rendre votre séjour des plus agréables.
Merci à Melina d'être venue me chercher à l'aéroport, merci à Paola de m'avoir emmené au supermarché et à la recherche de sandales pour remplacer les miennes abimées au premier jour !
Le studio est très bien équipé et à mon arrivée, j'y ai trouvé boissons et fruits, un vrai plaisir.
Je ne peux que recommander cet hébergement proche de la plage et du bus.
I stayed in studio with my boyfriend and we both enjoyed it a lot!
Melina's mother Paola was the best host we could imagine, very kind, funny and with perfect English. She picked us up from the airport, she welcomed us with a bottle of wine and delicious cyprus sweets. She was always there to help us, to recommend the best restaurants and beaches. She even drove us to the supermarket and helped choosing the best local products.
When it comes to studio, it was also perfect :) Fully equipped, beginning with juice squeezer, ending with beach mats and sunshade; clean and well located, it was very close to nice beaches and to the bus stop.
One day we would love to come back to Mel's studio, because we felt in love with Cyprus and kindness of people living there. :)
We truly recommend staying in the studio!
The welcome was excellent. We found all the description correct and cWe were greatly satisfied with Mel and Paola's (her mother) hospitality.
We appreciated very much the help, the kindness and the atmosphere. Our apartment was well equipped and in a good and quiet position. We warmly reccomend a stay at Chez Coco and give the highest possible score to this accomodation. Our hosts were eager to help in everything. One cannot expect or ask for more.

To answer the questions asked by AirBnB:
How did the host make us feel welcome?
This was our first AirBnB experience and I can’t imagine it getting any better than this. Paola, Melina’s mother, picked us up right from the Karavella Bus Station in Paphos after we arrived by bus from Larnaca Airport (also dropped us off there the morning that we left). She asked us if we wanted to do some grocery shopping, as the apartment is equipped with cooking gear, and then brought us to the grocery store. She told us she would take us every day if we wanted, which was an incredible offer, but since we rented a car, it was not necessary. However, she did both drive us to the bus station and pick us up, when we wanted to do a day trip to Nicosia, despite her being very busy with other work. She gave us use of beach mats, a cooler and ice packs, beach towels and an umbrella when we went to the beach, which saved us having to rent these things, which surely would have been overpriced at one of the beachfront resorts. She told about how to visit places around the island, such as Lara Beach and St. Neofytos Monastery and a cool restaurant near Latsi on the north coast.
Oh yea, she also gave us some laundry soap when we needed to use the washing machine in the room, which was great since we travel light with very few clothes.
Was the listing description accurate?
The listing was exactly as described in AirBnB profile of the property.
What was the neighborhood like?
The neighborhood was quiet and it was a 5-10 minute walk down to a coastal beach path and beach. You can walk all the way down to Paphos Harbor if you feel like a long walk, although we just went down the coastal path a short distance to watch the amazing Cyprian sunsets. There were supermarkets and markets within walking distance (less than 20 minutes) and a couple of restaurants on the walk down to the beach. It was surrounded by fruit groves (I remember seeing a lot of fig trees).We did not try these as we cooked quite a bit in the apartment itself. There was a bus station about a 5 minute walk from the apartment that goes both into downtown Paphos, as well as up to Coral Bay (although we never went up to Coral Bay).
Overall, our experience with Paola and Mel was beyond our expectations. It was relaxing and a great value. If you are looking to get local flavor and guidance while on your Cypriot vacation, we do not think you could find a better place.
If you want to visit Cyprus and feel like staying with friends i can strongly recommend Melina's appartments! If you want to visit Cyprus not to be bothered by anyone - i can recommend you Melina's appartments, becouse in any case this amazing family of hosts are welcome to any you desires!!! You will be always advised and helped!
The appartments are very very clean!!! Full furnished and equiped. I saw all of them, so stayed with Melina for 2 months. Its really 10-15 walking to the beach, wihich has one big advantage - the natural breakwater, so you can swim in any weather not feeling dangerous! The location of appartments is between Harbor , where you can have some walk, fun and shoping and the Coral bay, the biggest sandy beach of Paphos. You can reach both places by bus 615 . If you are going to cook , there are 2 shops around- one is 10 min walking on the way to the beach , where you can buy almost everything from water , milk and wine to suvenirs, and another one, big one, is located 20 min walking. The family of Melina is always welcome to drive you there , but anyway i would reccomend you to hire car, if it's possible, so to be able to go any place you need or want !!!
I am very thankfull every member of this wonderfull family, but most the greatest Mrs.Paula, mother of Melina, one of the best and kindnest woman i have ever met!!!
I had a great stay at Melina's place. She is a very good host and does everything she can to make your stay enjoyable. The location is also very good; nice walk to the beach. The studio is not very spacious, but it has everything you need.
We've been to many places but I have never met such a fantastic host as Mel and her family. Kindness, care, support and care we got from Mel, you can not describe with words, you have to survive. Apartment looks very good in the pictures, or even better, in fact, was a treadmill with everything we needed and completely met our needs. To all who think about visiting Cyprus, Paphos and recommend the apartment with Mel. We had a wonderful vacation you will remember forever;).

Hi my name is Paola! I have five accommodations listed in Paphos on the same street I live on. The two are 2 bedroom houses, the other is a 1 bedroom flat and the other two are studios.
Whoever rents from us can rest assured that once on the island they can count on us for any help they may require.
If you are travelling with small children you need not worry about prams, car seats, baby cots, toys and even clothing that take up a lot of luggage space like jackets as we have all those things to lend you.
Staying at one of our places throughout your holidays means that you will get to visit places tourist reviews do not even mention, eat in the best restaurants, enjoy drinks in the hippest bars - things that only a resident can share with you.
Everything you do in life is about the experience, the people you encounter and the impressions they leave upon you, so we can guarantee that a holiday at any of our accommodations will be top of the list in your 'best ever' book of life experiences.
Looking forward to meeting you soon!
