About Trevor Weeden

I was born and grew up in Essex, England and have lived in south London for some time now. I enjoy London but trips to our place in Cyprus are always something special to look forward to. Even their coldest winters are warm by London standards!

Trevor Weeden purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Trevor Weeden chose Larnaca region

The house is ideally located in easy reach of the beaches, mountains and cities. It is near ancient ruins as well as modern attractions. Set in the beautiful countryside surrounded by the foothills of the Troodos mountain ranges it is a great place to have a holiday at any time of year.

What makes this bungalow unique

The swimming pools on site are a favourite part of holidays for many people and with the tennnis court and children's play area there is something for everyone. The views from the roof terrace are something we never tire of, admiring the hills and you can see the Mediterranean as you enjoy a barbecue or a refreshing drink. The kitchen terrace and roof terrace have good views of the pool areas so you can keep an eye on young family members if you need to.

A walk though the nearby orchards is also something we enjoy, taking in the beauty of the countryside.

The house itself is comfortable and well equipped for self-catering and not far from many different types of restaurant in the surrounding villages. Within 20 to 30 minutes you can get to the major towns of Larnaca and Limassol and a slightly longer journey will take you to Nicosia. It is quick and easy to get to most places in south, east and west Cyprus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The bungalow was exceptionally clean and well furnished. Everything you would need is there. The beds were extremely comfortable, infact I had some of the best night sleeps I have ever had. The patio areas and roof terrace are spacious and there are some lovely views to be had. All in all extremely peacefull. The surrounding area and swimming pool were kept spotlessly clean. The village itself has a couple of good resteraunts and cafe's - also the bakery had some delicious daily offerings including the most delicious bread. The bungalow is well positioned for visiting Larnaca, Limassol and even the drive to Paphos only took over an hour. We found the owners extremely helpful - nothing was to much trouble. We would have no hesitation in staying at Olympus House again.



Since returning we have recommended it to family and friends as a real little gem of a place.

Amazing property - in a good location for exploring the real Cyprus

  • 5 of 5

The property was really clean and very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The shared pool area was quiet which was really nice. There is a good supermarket relatively close to the house to stock up on all the supplies and the local taverns and bakery offer a good selection of local food. The near by archeological site is very worth a visit! The location was excellent and with really good road access to all the major cities and places on the south coast. Dealings with the owner was brilliant and he provided lots of information in his guides to maximise the trip. We would completely recommend this apartment for a couple or a family looking to explore Cyprus.

Owner's Response: It is very good to read your review of holiday, and how you enjoyed your stay. A lot of people comment on the location of the property, and how easy it is to visit many other areas of Cyprus from there; it is great to hear you made the most of this and were able to explore Cyprus. It is good you were able to enjoy the local area as well, including the UNESCO archaeological site on the other side of the village.

Comfortable accommodation in quiet village

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation is well presented & located in a quiet Cypriot village. It is well equipped & feels like a real home from home. The bungalow has terraces overlooking a lovely communal pool where we enjoyed eating breakfast & having bar-b-queues. A car is essential to explore the surrounding areas.

Trevor was extremely helpful & quick to respond to any questions we had & provided us with lots of information before our stay to help plan our holiday as well as really clear instructions to find the accommodation by car.

Highly recommended for a relaxing break.

Owner's Response: It is very good to hear that you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed staying at our holiday home in Choirokoitia, Cyprus. Our aim is to ensure that holidaymakers have a comfortable and relaxing place to stay, a 'home from home.' We often hear that people have taken advantage of the location to explore the surrounding area and visit places all over Cyprus. The location is ideal for this, as it does not take long to get to much of Cyprus from there. We are glad you enjoyed the terraces overlooking the communal pool and had some meals there. It is always enjoyable to have a relaxing meal outside. We hope you will come back and stay again on a future holiday.

Modern house, excellent facilities in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house had excellent facilities, everything worked well. The washing machine came in very handy and the ceiling fans in the bedrooms really helped to keep cool at night. The veranda and roof terrace overlooking the site were a great place to relax. The swimming pool was very clean and inviting - we used it several times during our stay. We enjoyed the good selection of dvds and books, the sofas were comfortable as were the beds. The shower was easy to use. The leaflets and maps in the house really helped us to plan our days out and make the most of the surrounding area. Communication with the owner was always excellent and we would recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a comfortable 'home from home' from which to explore this beautiful island.

Fabulous get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic apartment. It was perfect for us, I have limited mobility and struggle to find great accommodation, but my search is over. The apartment has parking right at door and all on one level with a shower cubicle (all important to me). It is clean, beautifully decorated with everything you could need. Beds are comfortable and the ceiling fans kept us cool all night. We had sole use of the pool and loungers. The apartment is on a complex on the edge of a lovely little village. We ate at the Rainbow Resturant at the entrance, fabulous meal from a lovely family. Bakery at bottom of hill was perfect for breakfast pastries and fresh bread. For further afield adventures the apartment is so close to main motorway that takes you easily to Limissol and Larnaka. We loved our stay, communication with owner was fabulous. We can't wait to return!

Well equipped and well situated for sightseeing

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property was accurate and Trevor couldn't have been more helpful during the booking process and while we were there. A problem with the fuse for the oven was sorted promptly during our stay. The property is extremely well equipped and the location is lovely, not only the beautiful pool but access to good roads which made our sightseeing very easy. The Rainbow Taverna has excellent food and is very friendly, as are all the local restaurants. We would recommend this property to anyone wanting a peaceful stay in nice accommodation.

Choirokoitia is located midway between Larnaca and Limmasol in the south of Cyprus (around a 25 minute drive to either town) and around a 40 minute drive to Nicosia. Famous for its Neolithic remains nearby (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) it is the ideal place to base yourself to get the most out of your Cyprus holiday.

Set on the edge of the village the development is surrounded by countryside with views up the mountains and down to the sea. There are olive groves, lemon trees and the local village’s nature trails will take you near to the ancient settlement.

A ten minute drive will take you to the coast. Zygi is famous for its fish restaurants and harbor or go and laze on nearby Governor’s Beach (blue flag) and try out the water sports. Larger beaches can be found in Larnaca and Limmasol along with the full range of beach activities. It is worth spending time exploring these two towns offering a mix of historical and modern sights including museums and galleries. Just the other side of Limmasol is Lady's Mile beach, a favorite for many.

Whatever it is you want to do you are likely to find it nearby. Whether it is golf, horse riding, diving, cycling, fishing, paint balling or visiting the historic sites these are just a short drive away. There are also water parks, cinemas and even a Camel Park. Nicosia and Limmasol also offer modern shopping malls and if it takes your fancy you can also pop into Nicosia’s Ikea.

Drive up into nearby foothills of the Troodos mountains and you will soon come to beautiful villages such as Pano Lefkara famous for its lace and silver products. Further on into mountains is Mount Olympus where you can go walking in the summer and go skiing in the winter.

No visit to Cyprus is complete without visiting the Roman and Greek remains. A little further the other side of Limmasol are the ruins of Kourion with its spectacular amphitheater and mosaics.
