This brand new house is nestled in a valley of banana plantations, orange & mandarin orchards and fig trees and is ideal for couples, families or friends that appreciate chic surroundings and quality accommodation.
There is a large supermarket 1 km away but there is also a mini-market opposite the bus stop which is only 500 meters from the house.
I live on the same street so if you do not hire a car you are more than welcome to join me to shop for your groceries as with three children I inevitably visit the supermarket everyday!
Once you arrive you will be given a list I have complied of the very best things to visit whilst on the island and how to get there. The house has fast Wi-Fi connection so you can download any additional information you may require.
The house is 65 square meters indoors with an additional 70 square meters of gardens, 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 house is fully furnished with towels, sheets, pillows, washing machine, fridge, freezer, kettle, microwave, oven, cutlery, crockery, iron, TV, DVD, etc…
There are 2 split units for either AC or Heating – one is in the living room and the other is in the left bedroom.
There are 2 bedrooms: one with a double bed, the other with a zip link bed that can be made into a king size double or 2 singles. Baby cots are also available at no charge. This house comfortably accommodates 4 people and maximum 2 baby cots.
This is a private house that has its own garden, BBQ, balcony etc... so nothing is shared with anyone else.
I live on the same street so my guests are always welcome to visit me if they need anything.
I do work but when I am not home my mother Paola is there and she can take care of you even better than me!
We always pick up our guests from Paphos Airport and take them back when they leave and if they arrive at Larnaca Airport they catch the bus and we pick them up from the central bus station. Check in is always very personal and we explain everything which is why we do not have a house manual.
When I can (work and weather permitting) I invite my guests to a BBQ at my house and I can say that these have been the most memorable moments of my Airbnb experience to date.
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 have an amazing view of the sea 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 so many stars at night and seeing shooting stars all the time!
I love the orange & mandarin groves and 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.
Melina and her family gav us a stay that we will never forget, i have never met anyone that is so servicminded! She made us feel so welcome and our kids just loved her! The appartment is really nice and has everything that you need and it also have a wonderful seaview. Do not hesitate to book this appartment or any other appartment were Melina is your host, i promise you wont regret!!
Aldrig har jag mött någon som är så serviceinriktad som Melina, hon hämtade oss på flygplatsen och tog oss till lägenheten där hon hade fixat med färsk frukt en flaska vin och lite överraskningar till våra barn. Lägenheten är väldigt fräsh och har allt du kan behöva, Om du undrar över någonting så är Melina bara ett sms eller ett samtal bort och hon kommer garanterat att göra allt för att hjälpa till. Omgivningarna runtikring lägenheten går inte heller av för hackor med bananplantager, apelsinträd,mandarinträd, citroner och grapefruktträdet utanför sovrumsfönstret det finns så mycket att se. Jag rekommenderar alla jag känner att bo i någon utav de lägenheter som Melina är värd för, även om jag egentligen vill hålla detta guldkorn på jorden för mig själv!
Melina is a very perfect host. The apartment is very nice, super clean and cozy, fully equipment. Beautiful balcony view. She and her mother were always ready to help us. At night through the glass doors we watched stars in the sky and lights of the night city. I even saw a shooting star in the night sky. Thank you so much for making our stay so relaxing.
Stepan, Ekaterina and our son Alexander.
We spent a week there at the end of September. The place is great. Very clean and nice view. We were unlucky to have a young family next door with a baby that cried every night in the middle of the night and we could hear it like too well. So not sound proof.
Melina was waiting for us late at night and prepared some fruits, sandwiches and a bottle of wine. Very nice start to this trip.
There is a washing machine (will need to buy detergent) and a BBQ grill (will need to buy coal) that was great to prepare some fresh fish.
Melina was always available when we had questions and answered promptly. Thank you once again Melina for everything.
Our holiday was a dream. Perfect location, great accomodation, superclean and very well organized apartment , even in the smallest details. It was nicer than staying at home, even nicer than what it looks in the picts. The owners were the most helpful, polite and hospitable people that We have never met in our life. It was like to stay by our best friends. Highly suggested and raccomended. Very difficult to expect more. Hope to enjoy this experience again. If you want to live a dream, go to Melina and Vassiliy's homes! Thanks so much to them for all. Ciao, Claudio and Svetlana
This is such an easy review to write, because everything was perfect. My boyfriend and I stayed for almost a month and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The apartment is gorgeous -- everything is new and in perfect condition, it's tastefully decorated and very comfortably furnished, spacious, light, airy. The kitchen is well equipped, which we appreciated since we cooked most nights. There's a BBQ, which we used all the time, out in the very large back patio. Most evenings we spent sitting on the front balcony that overlooks the ocean... perfect sunsets are nearly guaranteed daily. Walking distance to a great swimming beach.
Melina and her family are reason enough to stay. They are so warm and welcoming and go way out of their way for their guests - such genuine generosity is rare in my experience. Great suggestions for restaurants, sightseeing.. anything you can think of really. And it's so nice to know you're getting real local wisdom when you're new to a place.
We were visiting partly to get some work done, so we spent lots of time in the apartment on our computers, and it really was a good place to relax and focus. I'd highly recommend it for a "writing retreat" as well as a luxurious holiday.
A few words on the location: We spent a long time looking for the right part of Cyprus to stay in. I really think we made a good choice. The main part of Paphos is very toursity and crowded and the beaches aren't nearly as nice as they are a bit further out, so the house in perfectly situated. But this side of the island also has the most beautiful and clear waters, and you can drive less than an hour to a number of really incredible spots.. I wish we'd spent even more time exploring the area, but we loved what we saw. I'd recommend renting a car to really be able to explore the island.
Thanks for everything Melina! We hope to be back one of these days.
Had a wonderful stay. Melina was very helpful, including suggesting things to see & do. As the apartment was newly listed, it was newly decorated.
We hired a car & did day trips from here including to the stone beach at the bottom of the hill.
We would recommend it .
