The Space

This cozy apartment is nestled in a valley of banana plantations, orange & mandarin orchards and fig trees and is ideal for couples, families or friends that want to enjoy a relaxing vacation by the sea.

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 apartment is 55 square metres located on the 2nd floor in a serene, residential area of Paphos on a dead end street.

The beach is a mere 800 metres 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 apartment is fully furnished with towels, sheets, pillows, washing machine, fridge with freezer, kettle, microwave, oven, cutlery, crockery, iron, tv, dvd, hairdryer etc…

There is 1 split unit for either AC or Heating in the living room but it is very strong and cools or heats the entire flat.

There is 1 bedroom with a HUGE double bed and there is a King size sofa bed in the living room. Baby cots are also available free of charge. This flat comfortably accommodates 4 adults.

Guest Access

This is a private apartment that has its own entrance, balcony etc... so nothing is shared with anyone else.

Interaction with Guests

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

There is a bus stop 500m from the house that will take you anywhere you want to go.

  • L'accueil que nous avons reçu de la part de Paola (la maman de Mélina) a été parfait. Elle nous est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport au milieu de la nuit, nous a emmené faire les courses en voiture le lendemain et profiter de ses conseils sur les produits locaux, indiqué les endroits à voir et les bons restaurants.
    Le logement est agréable et bien situé, à 5 minutes d'une petite plage et du bus permettant l'accès à Paphos et aux divers sites, le bus ne coûte que 5 euros la journée ou 1,5 euros le trajet.
    Beaucoup de choses à visiter dans les environs de Paphos qui n'est pas uniquement une destination soleil, nous n'avons pas tout vu en une semaine et nous reviendrons certainement.
    Encore merci à Paola et à Vassilios qui a été notre chauffeur pour le retour.

  • Melina is a great host - very friendly and helpful. She took us from airport and offered to take us to the supermarket whenever we need it. But really it's ok to leave in Chlorakas without a car: from this flat everything is available in 15 minutes on foot (sea, supermarket, bus to Paphos city). Flat is cozy and has everything you need (if there isn't something, hosts will solve it quickly). A lot of space thanks to the big windows-doors, a lot of light, air and sun. Flat is on the 3 floor from 3 that has the house. It's located at the end of the street, very quitу place surrounded with fruit trees. House inside has too good audibility and is cool independently of the weather outside (perfect for hot summer, no so good for winter). Internet connection is fast, so you'll have no sense of desertion - it's a quiet nice place near nature, with good wi-fi and infrastructure. Strongly recommended.

  • Были с женой в Пафосе почти весь сентябрь 2013г. Миленькая квартира на третьем этаже,два прекрасных балкона для романтических ужинов и неторопливых завтраков.Фон -можно только мечтать.Близкое побережье,зелёные сады,горы на горизонте.Потрясающий воздух!Хозяева предельно вежливы и гостеприимны,но очень неплохо для гостей знать английский язык для вменяемого общения.Но можно и по-простому ,т.е. язык жестов никто не отменял,навязывать своё общение никто не станет,а необходимое для комфортной жизни перед глазами.Встретили в а.порту Пафоса без проблем,туда же вернули по окончании отдыха,нужно только попросить .Море рядом ,минут десять прогулочным шагом,пляж с волнорезом перед отелем Св.Георгий. Инфроструктура района и города развита весьма прилично,две таверны рядом и магазин со всем нужным на перекрёстке.Автобусы ездят регулярно и часто,очень удобные,кстати.Мы брали авто(рент-а-каров масса и цены примерно одинаковые) для мобильности и осмотра достопримечательностей Кипра.Дороги неплохи,на 3+ местные,федеральная трасса на 5 или около того. Лучший пляж,по- моему,Корал Бэй,в 10 км дальше по побережью на запад.Ходит очень часто автобус маршрута 615,цена билета 2,50 евро в одну сторону.Шезлонги и зонтики платные,по 2,50 евро каждый предмет.Но пляж того стоит,убедитесь сами. В итоге,отдых понравился,общее впечатление хорошее.Будем возвращаться!

  • Melina is a fantastic host and her apartment was great! We have spent a wonderful week, raiding all around the Paphos area, and coming back in the evening to sit at the terrasse and admire the sunset on the sea, just beyond the banana trees. What a scenery! She cooked very nice sweets and always came by to offer us some. So kind! And to finish with, the place is very, very clean!

    Pour nos amis français, vous ne serez pas en reste car Melina et sa mère parlent français comme vous et moi. Toute la famille se met en 4 pour vous accueillir dans les meilleures conditions, avec à chaque fois une gentillesse inégalable. Et pour ne rien gâcher au plaisir, leur conversation est passionnante.

    This is definitely the place to stay at Paphos!

  • Melina and her husband are great hosts, very nice and helpful. The apartment is nicely located in a quietest neighborhood, you can easily drive to any point from there. The apartment is well-equipped with everything needed, has a comfy balcony with a pleasant view (the sea included). We've spent few great days there.

  • Thank you very much for that wonderful time we spent with you. Our son was really pleased with his birthday that he celebrated with your children. Your help was always effective whenever our baby suffered mosquitos allergy or temperature. The only trouble for us was uneasy road to the sea together with small uncomfortable beach.
    We worried if our vacacion with two children (5 years and 8 months) would be easy but evrything turned out to be good. We had cosy appartment which was fully corresponding to the describtion and hospitable family.

  • We stayed at Melina's flat the whole June and really enjoyed our vacation very much! And most of all we liked our host and her marvelously welcoming attitude. Her family bursts with kindness and support to each other and it spreads on their guests too! Whenever we needed anything or had questions - Melina was ready to help, we had a great please to meet her.

    Coming to the flat - it is well equipped with everything you need for short or long stay, towels, linen, dishes, kitchen staff, washing machine, huge plasma TV, wi-fi, etc. And the view is excellent - we loved the sunsets in the evenings and the lights of hill villages at night. The area is very quite due to the dead end location, all with flowers and vivid nature.

    There are supermarkets and cafes in walking distance, we liked Pepperoni Italian restaurant and Agios Georgios cafe in front of the St.Grorge hotel. Also you can get to Harbour cafes and souvenir shops - just 10 minutes by bus.

    It took us about 15 minutes to get to the nearest beach at St.George Hotel, which is really beautiful with it's blue and lazurite clear and warm water and stones. There are sun beds and umbrellas for rent (email hidden). We also went to the pools of the hotels nearby, some of them welcome non-residents and some charge a fee. If you want sand beaches - the ones of Coral Bay are just 10 minutes by bus. And if you rent a car, visit the beaches of Lara, Latchi and Polis!

    To sum it up, we had great vacation in Pafos and recommend this flat to everyone!

  • To comment the apartment in one word? Excellent. Melina is a wonderful hostess, her apartment is top notch. Clean, colorful, the right size, nothing missing. The apartment is in a quiet area, really 500m from the beach and you get the loveliest sunset views for free.
    Melina knows all the right places to visit and to eat and she can even put this all in an email for you. I can highly recommend her place to stay, whenever you're in the Paphos area. Apartment well equipped, nothing missing. A big thank you.

About
Hi my name is Melina and I currently live in Cyprus. I am 34 years old and have three children. My husband Vassilis is a Captain and I am the GM of a Hotel. 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. I have been a hotel manager for the last 12 years - plenty of time to learn quite a bit about the hospitality industry and how to make my guests feel as though they are coming to their home away from home. 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 I have all those things to lend you. I also have two other listings, one in Marbella and the other in Marrakech that belong to my brother Alex. They are both luxurious, tastefully decorated and charming houses that are perfect for a dream holiday. 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 I 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! Mel
