About this listing
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 three children I inevitably 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 studio has both very fast wi-fi and cable internet connection so you can download any additional information you may require.
The studio is 25 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.
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 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 so 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.
The rules are simple:
Treat the property with respect and care just as we treat you!
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.
Please note that electricity consumption is free for up to 10kw per day. Anything over that will be charged according to consumption. When you are not at home please switch off the AC and the lights as you would in your own home so as to avoid wasting electricity.
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.
Yes!! Melina (Paola's daughter), came and picked me up from the airport although, I arrived late at night. And when I left, Vassili, Melina's husband took me to the airport in Larnaca, which is 140 km away!! They made me feel very much at home, and I highly recommend this studio.
Paola is an incredible host that takes care of all the details that make a stay perfect. The studio is so clean and has everything you need to feel at home and Paola will give you all the information you need on what there is to do on the island. There is even a wireless key board and mouse so you can lounge on the bed and browse the internet on the large flat screen TV that is connected to a laptop! Our only regret is that we had to leave so soon but we will be back! Thank you for a great stay.
Melina, Paola and Vasili were very nice and helpful hosts. We had all what we needed in the appartement and it was always someone there we could ask for help, if needed. It was very clean and comfortable. The apartment was also a very good starting point for tours all around Paphos County (we did them on public transport).
Thanks again for the welcoming with the plate of fruit and for picking us up from Laura Beach Hotel!!
Mel is an amazing host! She was very welcoming and helpful with stuff to do in the area. We got picked up at the airport and when we had questions, she was very fast responding to our emails.
The studio is located 5 minute walk to the ocean and the bus stop that will take you to Pafos Harbour.
The studio is nice and cosy.
We enjoyed our stay a lot! Thanks for everything. It was like a home away from home!
We were given a very warm welcome by our Host's daughter, who had also arranged to have us picked up at the airport. This was very welcome as it was our first trip to Cyprus and we were somewhat uncertain of how to get to the apartment.
On arrival we were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment, which was really nice and had fantastic views. There were many lovely touches, such as fruit and wine to welcome us. Not only were we told about the nearest supermarket but taken there.Later we were given lots of oranges from the family orchards. We had a very interesting and relaxing holiday and would definitely visit again. It was a pleasure to stay in a well furnished, spacious and clean apartment. Our hosts went out of their way to make our holiday special. We were genuinely impressed by the warmth and generosity of our Cypriot hosts. We were even helped with securing a rental car at a very competitive price. It was our first experience of airbnb but I am sure it has set the bar very high for the future.
Herzlichen Dank für alles, was wir mit und durch Euch erleben durften. Angefangen mit dem tollen Angebot, uns vom Flughafen abzuholen bis hin zu Eurer Einladung zum Grillen. Es war ein toller Nachmittag, den wir mit Euch erleben durften und genossen haben. Das frische Obst und die Flasche Rotwein, den gut bestückten Kühlschrank und der herzliche Empfang waren wundervoll. Es war alles genau so, wie die Bilder es zeigen. Auch der Weg zum Meer war leicht zu finden und wirklich in nur fünf Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen. Man findet sich sehr schnell überall zurecht - sei es Busverbindungen oder Supermarkt. Wer Ruhe und Erholung sucht, ist hier genau richtig.
Von Herzen Dank für alles.....

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!
