A lovely bungalow with air conditioning and fantastic views of hills and the sea
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 the coldest winters in Cyprus are warm by London standards!
Trevor Weeden purchased this Bungalow in 2010
Why Trevor Weeden chose Choirokoitia
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.

Initially there was a musty smell but once we fully aired the place it was acceptable. Otherwise very positive on everything, well equipt, comfortable, we loved the verandah and its quiet location
Thank you for your review.
It is good to hear you enjoyed your stay, finding the house well equipped and comfortable. The verandah is a lovely place to sit relaxing or enjoying a meal.
We hope you will stay again on your next visit to Cyprus.
Super holiday would definitely reccommend
Very relaxing and peaceful location.
Location very convenient for exploring Cyprus
Accommodation very comfortable
A good reading light in the living room would be helpful at this time of year as it became dark very early and was too cold to sit outside for long once the sun had set.
The pool is wonderful but a little cool at this time of year although we did manage to swim most days

Sauber, zentral gelegen, großer Pool
Wir kamen nun zum zweiten Mal in das Ferienhaus. Das Ferienhaus liegt einfach zentral für Touren in Zypern. Die Autobahn erreicht man in wenigen Minuten. Schöne Strände liegen mit dem Auto zw. 12 und 35 Minuten entfernt.
Bei Eintreffen befand sich das Haus wie bereits vor zwei Jahren in einem guten Zustand und war sauber. Den von einem Gast zuvor erwähnte Schimmel war nicht vorhanden und keine Spuren erkennbar. Es roch auch nicht muffig.
In der Küche ist eigentlich alles fürs Kochen vorhanden. Im Kühlfach des Kühlschranks gibt es sogar Kühlpacks, die wir für unsere aufblasbare Kühltasche nutzten.
Der Pool wurde mit neuen Fliesen erneuert. Am Pool befanden sich während unseres Aufenthalts nur wenige bis keine Personen. Die Anlage ist sehr ruhig. Lediglich zum Wochenende wird es etwas voller, da hier die Einheimischen ihre Zeit auch am Pool genießen. Der Pool wurde in unserem Aufenthalt jede Woche groß gereinigt und ständig kontrolliert.
Der Pool ist ideal für Kinder. Abends kann man die Wärme aber im Schatten auf der Terrasse zum Pool genießen. Wer es heißer mag, kann auf der Dachterrasse dies bis zum Untergehen noch genießen.
Mit dem Eigentümer Trevor war die Kommunikation im Vorfeld sehr angenehm und erfolgte sehr rasch. Alle Fragen wurden beantwortet. Zu jeder Zeit hatte man das Gefühl mit ihm als Vermieter gut beraten zu sein. Er kümmerte sich blitzschnell um unsere Belange und Anfragen.
Die Bettwäsche und Handtücher wurden während unseres drei wöchigen Aufenthalts einmal gewechselt, bzw. ausgetauscht. Die Betten wurde hierbei von Trevors Servicekraft abgezogen und neu bezogen. Toller Service.
Abends konnte man mit ruhigen Gewissen die Fenster offen stehen lassen und den abendlichen Wind zur Kühlung des Hauses genießen, ohne dabei Angst vor Stechmücken zu haben. Es gab keine im Juli.
Wir werden auf jeden Fall zu einer anderen Jahreszeit wieder kommen.

It is good to hear that you had another enjoyable holiday at Olympus House. I know you enjoyed your previous holiday a few years ago and wanted to come back for another holiday.
You travelled to many places during your stay at the house; visiting some of the interesting places in Cyprus as well as the beaches a short car journey away. there are always new interesting places to enjoy.
It is good to read that you found the house to be clean, comfortable and well equipped for your stay. We do whatever we can to make your time at the house a pleasant and homely experience.
The pools have been re-tiled recently and it was good that you were able to enjoy the swimming pool, taking advantage of the lovely weather in Cyprus.
I was so pleased that you came for your second holiday and enjoyed it very much. Thank you for taking very good care of the house. I look forward to you coming for another holiday in the future.
Excellent location - close to beach and mountain villages, not far from Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca
House was convenient and comfortable for 4 people. It was well equipped, we even found the grill at a rooftop. The pool was excellent, well maintained, quiet. Although it is a communal pool, during our stay it was used almost exclusively by us. Nearby villages are charming, with lot of options to eat at family restaurants.But there is also a good supermarket Alfa Mega at Skarinou within a short drive from house. We tried a beach at Zygi and we liked it very much. It was free, quite, equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas, but without shower. There are some good fish taverns around; we had great calamaris and octopus at Heracles. Overall stay was very pleasant and we can suggest this house as an excellent base for doing different thing around.
We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at our holiday home, and found it a comfortable and well equipped place to base yourselves in. We do whatever we can to make sure people staying enjoy their time there. It is good to read that you visited the local villages and surrounding areas.

Perfect , very relaxing holiday
The house is perfect very spacious , comfortable, clean and modern. Great balcony and sun terrace, pool area is lovely however it was under maintenance when we stayed in March but the water would have been a bit cool for swimming anyway. Great location for exploring the island , we will definitely stay again in the future.

Choirokoitia is located midway between Larnaca and Limassol in the south of Cyprus (around a 25 minute drive to either town) and around a 35 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.
