This charming little studio is nestled in a valley of banana plantations, orange & mandarin orchards and fig trees and is ideal for couples or singles looking for a cozy, quiet and economical place to spend their vacation.
There is a hypermarket 1 km away but there is also a mini-market opposite the bus stop which is only 500 meters from the studio.
I live upstairs so if you do not hire a car you are more than welcome to join me to shop for your groceries as with four 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 studio has both very fast wi-fi and cable internet connection so you can download any additional information you may require.
The studio is 30 square meters 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 studio is fully furnished with towels, sheets, pillows, washing machine, fridge with freezer, kettle, microwave, oven, cutlery, crockery, iron, tv, dvd, hairdryer etc…
If desired, there is an AC split unit that can be used otherwise you can use the large fan available and seeing that the studio is located on the ground floor it is fairly cool.
There is a large very comfortable bed with new orthopaedic mattress. This studio comfortably accommodates 2 adults and a baby cot.
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.
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 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.
There is a bus stop 500m from the house that will take you anywhere you want to go.
Buitengewoon vriendelijke mensen, zowel Melina alsook haar moeder en echtgenoot. Studio voldoet aan alle eisen is ruim genoeg voor 2 personen met genoeg bergruimte enige minpuntje vond ik de ligging. Je bent wel binnen 5 min aan de zee maar dat is bergaf dus erna moet je altijd weer die berg op, het huren van een auto is dan ook aan te bevelen en ma heeft daar wel goede contacten voor. Al met al een prettige plek om een weekje tot rust te komen en te genieten van het mooie Cyprus.
My husband and I had an excellent week in this lovely quiet apartment and
would highly recommend it. They showed us a lovely place to eat in Paphos that we would never have discovered on our own.
When we come back to Paphos this is the first place we will try to book
Thanks for being perfect hosts we really appreciated the big bowl of fruit and the bottle of wine
Melina and Vassilis were nice hosts as want to assist if we needed anything. The apartment was pleasant decorated with nice details and everything we needed was there. The area was very quiet, preferably good to have your own car.
Apartment is greate. It has everything you need to stay for vacation. It was bigger and better than at picture. But not only apartment make you stay but also people, people who own it and make everything for you to feel like home. And Mel and Vasilis is that kind of people. We recieved anything we wanted from them: transfer from and to airport, information about local places to see and warm warm welcome. For sure we are coming back to Cyprus and visit Mel with Vassilis. They are greate hosts with cozy appartments.
We loved Cyprus and met lots of friendly people who made our stay.
Thank you very much for having us!
We are strongly recommend Melina and Vassilis and their apartments to stay at Paphos, Cyprus.
Host - is incredibly friendly family. They were always ready to help with advice or give a help in any way that we could need it. We fall in love with them during this week of vacation. Definetly I would like to come back to this place, and If I'll go again to Cyprus I would like to stay there again.
House is situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood and will suited perfectly for people who oriented for quiet and eco-oriented or cultural-oriented trip with a car usage.
I just knew I was going to love Chez Mel from the moment I saw it and all the previous reviews just reinforced that. Mel and her family are great hosts and the airport pickup in a thunderstorm at midnight was much appreciated !
The studio has everything and is in a lovely quiet location but within 5 mins walk to the bus stop taking you into Paphos. Lovely coastal walks nearby and if you're reasonably fit you can easily walk to the supermarket in the village and it's downhill on the way back ! Would also recommend the pizzeria near the bus stop.
We can only join in all the positive statements from the other guests. it was one of our best stays. Not only a very clean and cosy studio but also hosts that gave us a warmly welcome and helped us when we got lost in town when we were arriving in Paphos very late. Melina finally picked us up much after midnight. (Thanks again!) The collections of places where to go to in Cyprus was very helpful as we did not have to spend time in searching for those.
If you are looking for a place to stay in a quiet native neighboorhood (away from annoying mainstream tourism-infrastructure) and hosts with wide hospitality you are right here! Ideal if you are a couple and like to enjoy togetherness in a comfortable place. But also for anybody else who likes tranquility and a bit connection to the native life.
Melina is the best host I've ever had. We are the family with 3 yo daughter, and we had a very nice stay at Melinas apartment. Actually we lived in another apartment, as it was free so Melina kind of upgraded us with nice sea view, and I'm very thankful, as it was just amazing. Melina met us in airport, took us to supermarket, meet us with fresh fruits(a big thanks from my pregnant wife, it was that she needed), and a bottle of wine. Also a big thanks from mu daughter as Melina brought a big bag of toys. Also, Melina gave us a bunch of advises what to see in Cyprus.
The location of the apartment is superior for families, very quite dead end street, but very close to highway, bus stop, small shop, and of course the beach.
I highly recommend Melina and her apartments. And you will be happy with your Cyprus vacation.
Melina was the best AirBNB host I've ever had, by far. Her husband picked me up when I arrived in Paphos (which was very late in the evening), and when I arrived at the house there were fresh fruits, small sandwiches, etc, and a bottle of wine waiting for me. During my stay, Melina brought me to the grocery store, gave me recommendations on what to do and was helpful in answering questions. She even shared her birthday cake with me.
The unit is clean and modern. It is an easy walk to a bus stop that brings you to the harbor or to one of the best beaches in town. There is also a mini-mart and some restaurants close by.
I just wanted to shortly express my great satisfation to have chosen Melinas place to stay 10 days in Cyprus and share the incredible experience it was for me and my girlfriend to be in hosted by such nice family.
The Loft was well equipied and very clean, you instantly noticed that they have an eye for the little details. Check-In was great and the time we spend there, we enjoyed the pleasant relationship we had with Melina and her huspand. They even invited us to barbecues which gave the opportunity to know them better and get helpful tips on what to see on the Island.
The neighborhood is were calm and near to the sea as well as places to eat and go out.
All in together it was an experience that we would like to repeat at any time!
Thank you so much, Melina and Vasili
