Pyla Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1st floor 1 bed apt sleeps 2-4, balcony, pool, tennis court, dishwasher, lift

This fantastically spacious, fully-equipped one-bedroom apartment has all the mod cons you would expect from a high-end property (eg. air conditioning, MP3 connection to our music system, dishwasher, shower and bath, hair-dryer, fridge-freezer, outdoor balcony area with table and 4 chairs, 1 reserved car-parking bay, sofa bed in the living area with room to take an additional 2 extra guests), and is situated right in the heart of the quaint Cypriot village of Pyla, only 10 mins away from the bustling seaside town of Larnaca, and 5 mins away from the golden sands of Pyla beach.

With all the amenities you need on your door-step (including restaurants in the village and lining the neighbouring Larnaca-Dhekelia Road, to a local convenience store in easy walking-distance), this gated, luxury village resort built 8 years ago provides our guests with a peaceful hide-away and complimentary use of an onsite tennis court and stunning swimming pool.

As passionate and regular travellers ourselves, we look to ensure we have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and as relaxing as possible: from leaving our tennis rackets and a set of balls in the apartment for you to use, to a journal that we have written and our guests have added to over the years with all the recommendations of the best hidden gems on the island, including the best bakeries and restaurants, to the most interesting day-trips and off-the-beaten-track beaches. We hope that you will enjoy the read, and might even considering adding your own finds as you explore this beautiful and romantic island of Cyprus for yourselves.

Here's what some of guests have to say about their stay in our apartment:

Customer Testimonials: **We had a great week, thank you! Your apartment is superb and was just what we were looking for. I've got nothing but compliments for the whole holiday, you have made things very easy indeed, rest assured we will be recommending you to friends and family. The cleaner was also really helpful: It's little things like this that differentiate nice places with great places, so thank you. Looking forward to returning for another week of total chill out!**

**We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. Cyprus is a lovely place and we will certainly be going back again next year. The apartment was spacious, modern and clean. Your agent was also very helpful. In short everything was excellent.**

**My trip was fantastic thanks, the weather was good and the apartment was excellent, really nice place to stay and would stay again in the future. The agent who collected me from the airport was really helpful too. I hired a car and drove around the island, even made friends with a couple of locals!**

**As for our holiday, the apartment was wonderful, very clean, and comfortable and had everything you could need. It was very peaceful which was just what we needed. We found your apartment in a good location for touring the island as we went to the Troodos mountains and Konnos bay (great beach). Your directions were perfect and we found the apartment with no problems. We would definitely come back and recommend your apartment to all friends going out there. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday!**

**Thank you for sharing your Pyla apartment - it was very comfortable. The decor is tasteful and there is everything needed. I enjoyed my stay and had no problems at all. We will certainly recommend your apartment in the future for friends/family/colleagues that will be visiting.**

**We enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was very clean and tidy on our arrival. Your agent was very prompt when we arrived.**

**The stay in your apartment was faultless, it's of a wonderful standard and I had no problems whatsoever. The complex was very quiet and the weather was scorching for the whole 10 days. Hired a car for the entire stay, but also had a bike for 3 days. Practically did the whole island, highlights were......The dam on the way back from Paphos, wonderful road and views and also the water sports down on the beach. Left loads of comments in your book for food........Sakura, the Japanese on the L-D road was the best!**

About Hannah and Paul

Hi! We're Hannah and Paul - Brits who love to explore, and learn about other cultures. We're also big foodies, and will never miss an opportunity to try local cuisines, and then try cooking them for ourselves!

We met when Hannah was studying Classics as a student, and we had the opportunity to take a short holiday to Cyprus to further her studies - I guess we didn't just fall in love with the island!

We bought this apartment before it was even built many years later... as we knew that there's no-where on the planet quite as unique and beautiful, and steeped in such amazing history as this romantic island. And yes - a big bonus that so many of the locals speak English and there's no fussing about having to drive on the other side of the road!

We love sharing our apartment with our guests, and take great pride in hearing how the island has touched them in some way too and how keen they are to return!

Hannah and Paul purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Hannah and Paul chose Pyla

It's just the two of us, so a 1 bedroom apartment is all we need as our home from home - and the sofa bed in the sitting area means we can be flexible enough to accommodate friends and family if they want to visit too. Why didn't we buy in Larnaca? Because we prefer to visit, and 'retire' back to our apartment where we can chill out in the pool and enjoy the mountain views, or just sit out on our balcony reading a good book! We also crave to find as much authenticity as possible, and Pyla is an authentic Cypriot village... as close as you can get to the Turkish border of the island. Here you will find both Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots living in peaceful harmony in the village.

The resort itself is very high-spec, so we knew too that it had been built to last and with luxury in mind. It's very easy for us to maintain.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is on the first floor which is what we wanted - we wouldn't enjoy guests walking past us as they toddle off to the pool if we were on the ground floor (we enjoy our privacy). We're tucked in the furthest corner, with our balcony overlooking the tennis court, with views to the pool - there's nothing quite as mesmerizing or as peaceful as watching a game of tennis, or just sitting out in the evening enjoying the cool evening air after a hot day. Bliss. The lift is a bonus too, when you've done a big food shop in the local supermarket!

Guestbook comments from the owner

**We had a great time and the weather was wonderful. I can't express how pleased we were with your apartment. It was wonderful to know we had such a comfortable abode to return to: The bottle of wine that you left for us was wonderful too. As far as feedback is concerned I'm not sure that I can add anything constructive. We had a great time and loved the apartment. I can't think of a single criticism or 'could do better' improvement. Everything worked, the notes and recommendations were good, we enjoyed watching a DVD we'd never seen. I really can't think of a single thing that could be improved! I will keep hold of your details as I would very much like to make use of the apartment in the future. Your apartment was ideal and I've also passed on your details to my sister as I'm sure she and her family would love the apartment. Once again let me say how pleased we were with the apartment and what a great time we had. Many thanks and I look forward to visiting it again.**

Un'ospitalità squisita

  • 5 of 5

Io e mia moglie abbiamo soggiornato dall' 11 al 18 settembre 2011.

L'appartamento è situato vicino alla località di Pyla, in un complesso

residenziale molto curato e tranquillo.

L'appartamento è al primo piano con ascensore, è dotato di ampio soggiorno con cucina, camera da letto e bagno.

I proprietari hanno curato molto sia gli arredi che ogni piccolo dettaglio


Inoltre dispone di un terrazzo coperto con tavolo e sedie per poter cenare all'aperto.

In soggiorno è presente un libro in cui gli ospiti lasciano i loro

suggerimenti e consigli, sia per le località da visitare, sia sui ristoranti e taverne dove poter cenare... ci è sembrata un'idea molto carina e utile!!!!

Il proprietario è una persona estremamente gentile e attenta, si è dimostrato molto disponibile ad ogni nostra domanda e richiesta...

su internet era indicata per errore la presenza della lavatrice...

il sig. Paul contattato al telefono si è scusato dell'errore, e a sue spese ci ha permesso di poter lavare i nostri vestiti presso una lavanderia da lui contattata!!!!!

L'appartamento è situato in una buona posizione per poter vedere sia le spiagge nei dintorni di Agia Napa sia tutte quelle della costa a est fino al confine con la parte turca; inoltre anche andando verso Larnaca si trovano spiagge molto belle e panorami suggestivi.

Cipro è un'isola che offre davvero tanto: spiagge, siti archeologici,

chiese, monasteri, moschee, si adatta a qualsiasi tipo di vacanza, ed è adatta a viaggiatori di tutte le età.

5 out of 5

  • 5 of 5

The apartment lived upto all expectations and I had reviewed before booking.Very good value for money. Unfortunately we weren't there on holiday but we have stayed in a larger apartment with our children before and the complex is excellent and safe and makes a perfect base for a cypriot holiday. Easy reach by large roads to all major beaches etc.

The owners have put together a comprehesive book on things to do and recommendation for restaurants and trips etc. Will recommend to friens without hesitation.

Wonderful holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this holiday was perfect from the moment we arrived. It was easy to find Pyla and the apartment following Hannah and Paul's instructions. The apartment is beautiful, well equipped, very spacious and luxurious and was a lovely home to come back to and relax in after a day out and about in Cyprus. The apartment is part of a luxurious complex which is well maintained, beautifully kept and was very peaceful when we were there. There is a lovely pool nearby and tennis courts too but we were too busy sight seeing to try either of these out. There is a lot to do and see near Pyla, the beach is close by with a good parade of shops and restaurants and you can find everything you might need from supermarkets to banks in the near by village of Oriklini even an all night bakery selling the most irresistable pastries ever! Everyone whom we met was extremely friendly and welcoming, the roads are good and travelling about was easy. We found the most delightful places to visit and drink Cyprus coffee which we became addicted to and is a must for every visitor.

Our week went very quickly and certainly wasn't long enough to see everything there is to see in Cyprus and Hannah and Paul's appartment was the icing on the cake of our perfect holiday. There is a lot to Cyprus that makes it an appealing venue for many holidays to come and we wouldn't stay anywhere else after staying in Hannah and Paul's beautiful apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing such an in-depth review! And great point about their coffee - totally agree, it's a must to try whilst you're there. We look forward to welcoming you again... and perhaps next time you'll be able to chill out for a couple of days and enjoy the pool! Hannah & Paul

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is such a delightfully situated apartment. It is beautifully furnished and a great deal of thought has obviously been paid to ensure that you have a very relaxing and comfortable holiday. The welcoming pack was excellent! I loved the whole ambiance of the place and couldn’t have asked for more!

Pyla was the perfect location for both relaxing on the beach [many secluded spots to enjoy not too far away] or to explore the wonderful island of Cyprus.

So many places to visit – Kato Paphos, Aphrodite’s Rock, Larnaka, Hala Sultan Tekke & Salt Lakes, The Troodos Mountains (we had snow!), Lefkosia (Nicosia) & the area called Laiki Geitonia, Lanta Beach (delightful little spot) & Cape Greco (magnificent) – to name but a few!

The selection of restaurants is vast; all types of cuisine are to be found. At Vlachos Tavern, which came highly recommended in the apartment’s guest book, we had ‘Cypriote Mezedes’, a real dining experience that has to be tried.

It was a truly wonderful holiday; thank you Hannah & Paul.

Owner's Response: We're so pleased you tried Vlachos Tavern - it's one of our favourites too. Although best not to eat that day before you go, as there's so much food! By the time you visit again hopefully our journal will have even more helpful tips on where to go and what to see. We hope we can welcome you back soon - and thank you for writing such a great review. Hannah & Paul

We loved the apartment which is furnished to a very high standard and well maintained throughout. Close to several bars/restaurants and some lovely scenic walks. The weather was fantastic, so we made good use of the pool, which we often had to ourselves. It is also a wonderful base to explore the island of Cyprus. We will certainly recommend the apartment and its facilities to our friends and family. Looking forward to our next visit.

A wonderful holiday in Pyla, Cyprus

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Hannah's wonderful apartment is a fantastic base for a holiday in Cyprus. The complex is quiet and yet has great facilities including a pool and tennis courts. The apartment itself is spacious for two, tastefully decorated and is extremely comfortable. It is a fantastic base to explore this wonderful island and the air conditioning makes for a cool retreat in the height of summer! You'll need a car to make full advantage of all that's potentially at your disposal! You'll be able to visit some fantastic sandy beaches, some wonderful architecture and history and a 'must' is a visit to Nicosia. The history involving the greeks and turks is fascinating and nowhere more so than on the green line in Nicosia. A trip into the mountains is also a feasible day trip. If you enjoy eating out, there are so many wonderful restaraunts to try, particularly in Larnaca which can be followed by a romantic walk along the promenade and even a cocktail or two! Hannah and Paul have created a journal in which all the guests write their 'finds', restaraunt visits, days out, beaches including the fantastic bakery at Oriklini which in addition to selling the most exquisite bread and pastries, also sells the most wonderful icecream! We really enjoyed reading and contributing to the journal. We had a fantastic fortnight and will most definitely return!

This is a truly excellent location from which to explore the island of Cyprus, both North and South.

Pyla is located north east of Larnaca (follow the B3 round the bay and it is the next village (just inland) after Oroklini).

Pyla village is itself only a short walk from the apartment, unique with superb Greek and Turkish restaurants and the most amazing coffee you've ever had. The bustling town of Larnaca, with all its sea-food restaurants and water-sports is a short 10min drive. You can also be in the Troodos mountains in a short drive to the north west, and experience their breath-taking views. The remains of the ancient City-kingdom of Kition are also worth a visit. For nature lovers the nearby salt lake is a favourite stop-over for thousands of migrating birds including flamingos. Agia Napa, a 15 minute drive to the east has some of the most beautiful beaches on the island.
