About This Listing
This luxury 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.
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. We have also just installed cable TV.
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 with freezer, kettle, coffee maker, microwave, oven, cutlery, crockery, iron, TV, DVD hairdryer etc…
There are 2 split units for either AC or Heating – one is in the living room and the other is in the main bedroom.
There are 2 bedrooms: one with a double bed, the other with a double sofa bed. Baby cots are also available. This house comfortably accommodates 4 people.
This is a private house that has its own garden, BBQ, 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 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 many shooting stars at night.
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.
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. Please note that this specific property has very expensive flooring, antique furniture, Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware, Natuzzi leather couches, Smeg oven etc... If you have children it is especially important to make sure they do not destroy anything in the house as it will be very expensive to replace them.
Electricity and water consumption are included in the rental price but please note that electricity consumption is free for up to 15 kw 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.
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! :-)
great apartment, great hostess! pictures correspond to reality, and even more! thanks for everything, Paola !! recommend !!
Отличная квартира, очень уютно. Милая хозяйка, готова во всем помочь. Пляж ближайший возле отеля Ст.Джордж, вполне приемлим, но не для маленьких деток. Если брать машину, то лучше Coral Bay.
We really enjoyed Melina's flat. We were greeted by Melina's mother Paola, who helped us find the way to the flat and she also showed us the way to the supermarket. The flat itself is very nice. It is very clean and very well equipped! Everything is modern and tastefully decorated. The flat is airy and has a very nice terrace at the back where we spent a lot of time.On the front terrace one has nice views over the sea. We can strongly recommend this place, especially if you have small children. We came with our ten months old son and had everything we needed for him, including bed, highchair, blender and fun toys for him. Paola was always there to help us with anything and also gave us good advice for things to visit in the area. There is a small beach in walking (email hidden)orge Hotel but it is obviously good to have a car to get away from the hustle and bustle of Paphos if wanted.
We are two couples with one age babies, and we spent one month in this Melina's house. It was better than we can wish ! Melina, Vasilis, Paola and her husband are most hospitable hostesses who we know. They pick up us from/to airport, gave all what we need for babies (baby cots, baby chairs, many toys, blander and etc.). If we need go to big supermarket, they took us by their car. The house is very clean and cosy, the garden is wonderful. The terrace with furniture and big palm tree in garden made most hot days are comfortable. We had super holidays in Melina's house!
You will be glad to stay at Melina's house. Our family with newborn baby spent 5 weeks in the house and we felt like in our home. The house was clean, fully equipment, no problem with electricity and water. But most important thing is kind attention of ours hosts Melina, Vasilis and Paola. We feel like in home because they meet us like friends and they really wants we spend perfect time in Cyprus. If you rent a car you could travel nearby to see Paphos, Trodoors, Aphrodite's places etc. It is possible to use 615 buss to visit the Coral Bay or Paphos. We travel easy in the bus with a pram and almost every day walked to St. George Hotel's beach (about 10-15 min. walking). Our family had perfect vacation. We will be pleased to stay in the house again and recommend the house to you :)
Мы провели незабываемое время в апартаментах. Очень гостеприимные хозяева Мелина и Василий, которые действительно беспокоятся о вашем пребывании. Очень современная, чистая и уютная квартира, оборудованная всем. На кухне также Вы найдете все, что Вам нужно. Отличный сад, в котором хочется сидеть целыми днями. Месторасположение очень спокойное и тихое с великолепным видом на море. Для семьи с маленькими детьми лучше не бывает. Для детей все условия: море, там же бассейн и детская площадка. В квартире продумано все до свечек и камушков. Море находится в 10 минутах ходьбы, также поблизости есть несколько ресторанчиков и небольших супермаркетов. Мелина и Василий-спасибо Вам за прекрасно проведенное время и ждите нас в следующем году;-) We spent unforgettable time in Melina's apartments. The hosts, Melina and Vasili are very welcoming and really care for their guests and their well-being! The apartment is very modern, clean and comfortable, it has all the amenities. There is everything you need in the kitchen. The garden is magnificent and you really would want to spend all days there. The location is very quiet and tranquil with a splendid sea view. It's just perfect for families with small kids. There are all the things for kids here: sea, a swimming pool next to it, and a kids playground. Everything is seen to in the apartment, even candles and small stones. The sea is situated in ten minutes walk from the apartment. Also there are a few restaurants and small supermarkets in the vicinity. Melina and Vasili - thank you very much for such a beautiful time spent there and we will surely come next year! ;-)
You have a risk to view nothing in Cyprus because it is possible to stay in the house without get outside. Melina is not only knows, but, more important, sincerely wants to make her guest staying as pleasant as possible.
Her comfortable house has a very cozy outside space with a terrace coming on the internal patio and a large balcony with a sea view on the other side.
You have the exceptional opportunity to plunge in the atmosphere of the "right" family with a strong connection of generations and even feel a part of it - so the hosts are hospitable and take care about their guests as for their real relatives.
The space is quite comfortable and safe for traveling with small children, and Melina is a real catch. If she accepts you do not hesitate for a minute!
The way to the sea with a baby in a stroller takes 10 minutes and 20 minutes to get back. There are two beaches and an amazing promenade along the sea.
The house is located in a very quiet area close to the orange grove and the field that further a pleasant and relaxed holyday.
I am very happy with my choice and definitely recommend to stay at the Melina`s family house.
Вы рискуете ничего не увидеть на Кипре, поскольку в доме можно оставаться, не выходя далеко за его пределы. Мелина не только знает, а, что важнее, искренне хочет сделать пребывание своих гостей максимально приятным.
Это комфортный дом с очень уютным внешним пространством, состоящим из террасы, выходящей во внутренний садик-дворик, и большого балкона с видом на море с другой стороны.
Кроме того, у вас есть уникальная возможность погрузиться в атмосферу "правильной" семьи с ярко выраженной связью поколений и даже почувствовать себя ее частью,- настолько хозяева гостеприимны и окружают своих гостей заботой, как своих настоящих родственников.
Для путешествующих с маленькими детьми пространство достаточно удобно и безопасно, а Мелина - настоящая находка. Если она соглашается вас приютить, не сомневайтесь ни минуты!
С ребенком в коляске до моря 10 минут, обратно 20. На берегу два пляжа и шикарный променад вдоль моря.
Сам дом находится в очень тихом месте рядом с апельсиновой рощей и полем, и располагает к приятному, расслабленному и созерцательному отдыху.
Я очень довольна своим выбором и, безусловно, рекомендую остановиться в доме семьи Мелины!

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!
