About This Listing
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.
We live on the same street so 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 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 double sofa bed in the living room. Baby cots are also available free of charge.
This is a private apartment that has its own entrance, balcony etc... so nothing is shared with anyone else.
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 have an amazing view of the sea and that in 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 at and many shooting stars at night.
I love the orange & mandarin groves, 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.
All we ask is that our guests treat our property with respect and care just as we treat them!
We ensure that every single one of our guests enjoys their vacation in a relaxing, comfortable and safe environment and that they truly feel at home.
That is why the house rules are few and simple:
The property will be inspected upon guest arrival and departure - any damages will be paid for by the guest.
Electricity and water consumption are included in the rental price but please note that electricity consumption is free for up to 15kw per day. Anything over that will be charged according to consumption times the electricity rate.
The electricity meter will be recorded and monitored from the moment guests check-in until they check-out.
When guests are not at home we kindly ask that they switch off the lights and AC units just as they would in their own home so as to avoid wasting electricity.
Cyprus is quite an arid island and water is scarce (we very often get rationed) so please do not waste water unnecessarily. Baths are not recommended unless for children.
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.
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.
If you have small children please refrain from letting them play with crayons and paints as we like our house decorated just as it is!
That's all! :-)
Very peaceful and relaxing flat. Very clean too and with kind and helpful hosts. Highly recommended if you want to be able to easily get to Akmasa peninsular.
Paola was very hospitable. She gave us a lot of stuff for baby (cot, rocking chair and other). Apartment is clean and cosy. Kitchen is well equipped. It is beautiful sea view from the balcony. House is situated 0,9 km from the sea, so it is about 15 minutes by foot. Entrance to the sea is rocky. You have to go by car or by bus to the sandy beach. Also you need take a bus to go to the downtown of Paphos.
Melina's family is very good host. We stay in Paphos during 1 month and all that time we felt very comfortable and happy. Apartment is clean, you can find all staff that you really need to stay like you own home. Apartment has amazing sea view, and in evenings we spent time on the balcony looking at the sea and mountains. Melina's mother, Paola, always ready to help, advise and make your day more optimistic. There is a good beach near the house. Supermarket and bus station are located 5 minutes down the street, you can go to Kato Paphos, Coral Bay. Sometimes in the evening we went to the restaurant or cafe which are also located near the Melina's house.
We strongly recommend Melina's apartment. We had an excellent holiday and really miss Cyprus.
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.
Это был превосходный отдых!очень тихое и уютное место. Мелина внимательный и приветливый человек. Всегда готова помочь и сделать отдых своих гостей лучше, поэтому на протяжении всего отдыха мы не испытывали ни проблем ни стрессов)спасибо огромное Мелина!мы обязательно вернемся!)
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!

About the Host, Paola
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!
