I am a music historican and recently completed a fifteen volume study on the musical and historical legacy of The Beatles.
Joel was prompt and thorough with his communication.
Location is perfectly situated for walking to the beach and restaurants. If you're planning to stay just in Limassol, there's no need for a rental car and you can even take a shuttle bus from Larnarca airport for 9 Euro. Town house was exactly as described - perfect for a party of 3 persons with a pool to enjoy on the day we were too lazy for beach-going. Host (Joel) was very responsive to our needs and concerns and helpful in navigating transport options between Larnarca airport and Limassol. Would visit again!
Joel's place is fantastic, we really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. You can wonder out to the pool for a morning swim, or meander down to the beach. The neighbours are friendly and the house was immaculate.
There are shops nearby to stock up on food but Joel made sure we had bread, milk, tea etc (plus a nice welcoming bottle of red wine). Essential when you arrive at almost midnight after a very long journey.
There is even a spa across the road where you can have a relaxing massage if you get caught out by a rainy day. (it's in the basement of the red and grey office building)
There is a very nice Japanese place (though a tad pricey) within walking distance and loads of pubs/bars and taverns where the chefs will try and feed you until you burst with authentic Cypriot dishes. For €17 to €20 expect more than you can eat. They just keep bringing food until you say stop.
We were in Limmasol for my friends wedding. However we liked the look of Joel's place so much we extended our stay for a week! It was the right decision, 7 days in the sunshine. :) Thank you Joel for a fantastic week away.
P.S When leaving the airport the signs to Limmasol are labeled Lemesos. This caused some confusion but luckily Joel had given us some great directions so we still found the place ok.
P.P.S In case you didn't know Cyprus uses British style plugs so you don't need to take a converter. :)
The apartment was just as described and worked well for 3 of us sharing.
Great location, in a quiet area, but only a short walk to the beach, restaurants, bars, shops ...and bus stops!
The (quiet) pool in the small complex was lovely - and very welcome in 30+ degrees heat - along with the air conditioning in the apartment!
The place was clean and there were no problems with the shower/drains while we were there.
Communication with Joel was quick & simple and there was another local contact who was equally helpful, if any info was needed.
It was easy to apply Joel's House Rule - treat it like your own home. I'd certainly recommend the apartment. A relaxing experience all round!
Joel was a good host. Any questions we had he answered promptly. The apartment is in a good location. About 300 metres from the main road. Very quite location. The unit was spacious for the 2 of us. There are 2 rooms. both with air conditioning. The property has a pool and a backyard. Only downside is the upstairs shower. There is no water pressure in the shower head, but this is the only downside to the unit. We enjoyed our stay.
good location. Good place to stay with children. Some problems with sewage and cleaning before arrival.
Joel is a very considerate person. We enjoyed having him as a guest.
Joel was a good guest, friendly and easy to talk to. Everything was great.
Joel was a great guest to have at our Agrotourism. Although just for one day, we still had time to have interesting conversations about different topics and he showed a lot of interests in our business, products and cypriot life in the village. I would definetely recommend him as a guest!
Joel stayed only for a night but it was enough to feel comfortable with him from the first minute. Very interesting to talk to. I was impressed by his knowledge about Cyprus and it's situation. Highly recommended as a guest!
Joel is a great guy, very friendly, laid-back and open-minded. He is also full of knowledge and very fun to talk to. He treated the apartment as his own. Highly recommended guest!
Joel was a great guy .. very approachable and interesting / knowledgeable and all he guests staying mentioned that they enjoyed thier conversations with him... Kept his room cleanand had no problems.. would defo recommend him to anyone.
