Usually I am next door in which case I will provide the key. If arrival is at night time, the key will be in the electricity metres box, to the left of the main entrance. Please be careful when opening the door as the key is very near the aluminium and you may hurt your finger.

We spend most weekends in Larnaca so interaction with the guest is as often as they want. Guests may telephone any time they wish. My telephone number is in a convenient place in the house.
Currently there are 3 out of 6 houses of the block, occupied throughout the year. These families are very friendly. Within walking distance there is a local restaurant.

This older house house has a great location right on the sea front in Oroklini. Bus stop, shops and a great bakery are a short walk. We enjoyed watching the sea during a 2 day storm, and luckily there is excellent wifi if you need to wait out a rainstorm. Glafkos is easy to communicate with and quick to respond to questions. He is generous and a great host. The neighbors are friendly and we enjoyed manadarins from the tree out front. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal.
Warm welcome, very pleasant hosts and neighbors.
Despite its proximity to the airport, no aircraft noise.
Beach with gravel. The sea is very shallow with a sandy bottom so that you can go in the water more than 100m.
I hope we find time to visit this beautiful place resist.
Heartfelt thanks, Glafkos.
House lies exactly on the beach and view is superb. Very kind and friendly host.
We had a great time there.
Glafkos was a very friendly host. A answered a lot of questions before we arrived, sent us a detailed plan how to get to his house. He filled the refridgerator with milk, fuits and butter so we could eat something becouse it was after midnight when we arrived. He provided his wooden sunbeds and his umbrella. He and his wife were very helpfull with all our requests.
The location of the house is a really nice place, the beach is clean and there are only few people. We enjoyed our stay very much.
We had a very nice time in the house, Glafkos, his wife and the neighbours are the friendliest people ever met. The house is clean and fully equipped, and in a few steps you are in the sea. The view in the living room and from the veranda is really amazing. At noon it always became a little bit windy, and our daughter loved swimming in the waves then. We had a little car, in a few minutes with the car you are in Oroklini, where you can find everything you need. Thank you Glafkos, it was really a pleasure to meet you and all the lovely people there.
We had a wonderful time in Mr. Glafkos’ beach house in July 2014. The house was comfortable and clean with fully equipped kitchen and spacey backyard veranda that opens to the beautiful beach. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and the beach was not crowded even on weekends. The sea was warm and clean. Our hosts were exceptionally polite and made us feel very welcomed. We strongly recommend the beach house for everyone seeking a quiet vacation near the beach (particularly suitable for families with small children).
The only nuisances were the mosquitoes that kept buzzing around despite electrical repellents kindly provided by our host. But that’s a small price to pay for a wonderful holiday!
Very good house near the sea – a beautiful place and ideal for children. Nice beach with a safe sea floor. There a lawn near the house. The place suited very well for holidays of five our children, and also the it was the best summer for their parents. Many thanks to Glafkos and his family, they are incredibly welcoming people. We all want to come back to this sunny island where the people live with the sun inside their hearts.
Love my family! I devoted years of my life in research and collection of historical and folkloric material. This collection helped me in authoring my latest book 'In the Passage of Time' which was published in English and Greek.
