About This Listing
Cosy and comfortable one bedroom house in Agios Athanasios in Limassol, with a beautiful garden. It has one large double bedroom and comfortably fits two to three people, located in a quiet neighbourhood 10 minutes from the closest beach and easy access to the central highway road!
The neighbourhood is really quiet and nice and the garden is ideal for some coffee or tea. The double bed easily fits two people and extra guests can use the couch for sleeping. There is also an air bed available.
Free WiFi and A/C provided.
You will have access to free coffee and tea, as well as access to all the appliances and facilities of the house. The house has a TV with all the Cypriot channels and a home cinema that can be used with the TV or with any external device through an auxiliary cable provided. Please keep the volume down so you don't disturb the neighbours. The A/C is located in the bedroom but can cool the entire area.
Interaction with Guests
I am not currently living in the house so my parents will give you the keys and show you around in the house and take them back when you check out. Otherwise you can just leave them inside. If you are more than two people make sure you ask for extra bedsheets.
The neighbours are extremely friendly and the road is generally quiet with only the residents cars driving by. Don't be surprised if you receive warm welcomes or friendly conversations
The closest beaches are
1.Dasoudi beach: Sand beach , 3.4 km, 8 mins drive from the house
2. Crown Plaza beach: Sand beach ,3.7km 8 mins drive from the house
3. Thalassokoritso/Thalassaki beach 3.1 to 4 km( the beach expands across the beach path in Limassol , the beach is mainly sand 7 to 10 mins drive
4. Guaba Beach Bar : pebbles , 6.5 km , 11 min drive (one of the top 10 beach bars in Europe, definitely worth checking out)
Easiest way to the house is by the Limassol highway road. Public transport in Cyprus is relatively new so usually tourists get around by renting a car. There is a free parking spot right outside the house. If you are using GPS make sure you add the whole address of the house, 8 Ararat Agios Athanasios 4102, to avoid any ambiguities.
Alternatively there is a bus stop 2 minutes walking distance from the listing that goes through the city centre.
From either Paphos or Larnaca airport you will need to take the Bus Shuttle to Limassol. Final stop is Saint George Havouzas church. From there take the Bus 11 from Nikou Patichi traffic lights. Change to bus 20 at Sp.Kyprianou and get of at Ermi street. The listing is two minutes walking distance from there.
I will provide a pdf with the route map and instructions for the airport route or getting around limassol upon request.

Other Things to Note
For the little guests the house also includes a baby bed for you to use for free. The neighbourhood is quiet and friendly so I would appreciate if you respect the neighbours by keeping volume levels down
No smoking is allowed inside the house. Smoking is permitted outside. As the weather in Cyprus is usually warm, you will enjoy your cigarette much better there!
Made to feel very welcome on arrival. Various drinks and some basic food in the fridge. Comfortable big bed. Strong wifi signal. All good. Good location for travelling around Cyprus, easy access to motorway.
The house is really nice, in a calm area a bit outside of Limassol. It is perfect if you have a car, there is plenty of space for parking. For day trips, the highway is easy to reach and several supermarkets are close by. With the veranda it is also nice if you want to spend some time just sitting in the sun. Faethon and his father were really helpful; they took care of everything. The apartment is nice and well eqipped, just perfect for two people.
Very cute and cosy flat in a quiet area, but only 5min to the highway or supermarket (Carrefour). Everything was clean and very nicely decorated. The fridge was equiped with some basics for the first morning. We also enjoyed figs and pomegranates picked from the trees around the garden. Faethon's father welcomed us and gave us a call on our final day when we left the keys with Maria, a very friendly neighbour.
Thank you very much again for this great time in your house!
Der Empfang, (21:45) war überwältigend. Der Vater von Faethon empfieng uns sehr herzlich, zeigte und erklärte uns alles Wissenswerte der Einrichtung. Selbst für das Frühstück des ersten Morgens hatte er Toastbrot, 2 Sorten Käse, Butter, Kaffee, Milch, Zucker, als Begrüssungsgeschenk bereitgestellt. Wir mussten nicht erst einkaufen gehen, bevor wir Frühstücken konnten. Auf dem Esstisch hatte es unter einer Glasglocke von Faethons Mutter selbstgebackene Kekse.
Das Appartement ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet. Die Ausrüstung der Küche ist für diese Preisklasse überdurchschnittlich reichhaltig. Man könnte ohne weiteres 10 Gäste zum Essen einladen. Geschirr ist mehr als genug vorhanden, und der Kühl-Tiefkühlkombischrank ist auch überdurchschnittlich gross.
Für 2 Personen ist das Studio ideal, mit 1 - 2 Kinder würde es etwas eng.
Im Inserat wird nicht zuviel versprochen, und auch die Fotos stimmen mit der Realität überein.
Mit gutem Gewissen Können wir dieses Ferienappartement wärmstens empfehlen und mit 5 dicken Sternen bewerten * * * * *
Faethon and his family are great hosts, they really made us feel very welcome (food was even in the fridge !).
The house is very cosy and very well located, everything was perfect. We had a great time.
If we ever go back to Limasol, well will go back there.
Tout était parfait, Faethon et sa famille sont très accueillants et nous ont vraiment fait nous sentir chez nous pour une semaine de rêve.
Nous recommandons sans aucun problème la maison de Faethon.
The house was exactly like the photos, in a very quiet district of Limassol. We were welcome by Faethon's sister who kindly guided us to the house as we got lost in Limassol.
Feathon's father welcomed us after his work, there were some cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers in the fridge which we particularly appreciated as we didn't need to go shopping when we arrived. The house is just 5 min from a big supermarket, very convenient.
We really appreciated our stay here, we felt like at home.
Limassol is a nice place to stay, full of nice restaurants and shops. It's also perfect to visit Cyprus as it is very central thanks to the highway.
Thanks a lot to Faethon's family for their kindness and disposability.
