Unfortunately we received the mail with the instructions to find/enter the house by mail while we hadn't internet. When we arrived an other person was waiting for us and explained some things. There was no warm water in the kitchen. It was a bit noisy night because of the single glass windows. Great to have a washing machine (with Greek words on it). My son has to sleep on the coach. Five persons who should fit in here but then it will give you camping feeling. For 3 persons it's okay. Our contact with Foris was only by mail (no reactions on our phone calls). There is no full board; only some things were lying in the fridge and freezer. When packages have been opened it isn't inviting to use them. Location was good.
When we arrived, the apartment had not been cleaned because the tenants before us had just left that morning. The apartment in general is quite nice, with everything available for cooking and so on. It is also quite nicely located, with only a 20 min walk to downtown and a gas station and supermarket right across the street. Nevertheless, be prepared to hear quite some traffic noise due to substandard window insulation. The price was rather expensive and probably at the higher end of listings in that category. Foris was quite attentive and offered his advice and help at any time.
Our staying in the flat was wonderful! Floris is a gentle and nice guy and the apartment is really cute! Recommanded!
Our stay at Foris was superb. Foris' appartment is not only very convenient, but he made our stay even better by leaving us fruits and eggs from his family farm in the fridge. However,what made our stay at Foris' appartment unforgetable was his willigness to integrate us in the city and make us feel like locals. We highly recommend staying at Foris' for those who want to go beyond feeling like merely tourists.
Foris is a wonderful host, very kind and considerate. I got very lost trying to find the place (the map on airbnb didnt seem accurate) and he kindly came and picked me up in his car (even though it was 1am...). The flat is simple and I only stayed a night and it was perfectly adequate.
It was our first Airbnb experience, and it certainly won't be our last. Pre-arrival communication was great, with Foris replying instantly to our questions. We arrived a bit early, and Foris' mum was still cleaning after the previous guests, but it was no problem leaving our luggage already. She even gave us some homemade pastry for the day :) We met Foris late afternoon, and got a great deal of tips from him about where to go in Nicosia. The apartment is like in the photos, with fast WiFi, a new large TV, huge terrace and separate bedroom with a very comfortable bed. It's not very suited for light sleepers though, as there's some traffic noise through the thin windows. Also the central heating wasn't always on, even when it did cool down in the evening. Overall a great first experience and good value for money.

About the Host, Foris
Hello! My name is Foris. I'm from the beautiful island of Cyprus. I am a pro athlete of the Cypriot national team, in distance running. I have also attended the national university of Athens in primary education department. I love running and traveling. My favorite travel destination except Cyprus, is Kenya! I like good food, and anything traditional to each country. I always take care of my hosts, so don't worry. Just make your reservation and I will take care of the rest!
Nowadays, I am using my airbnb income to fulfill my childhood dream of participating in the olympic games, specifically to fund my preparation for the Rio 2016.
