Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment sleeps 4, near the sea, village, pool, WIFI

This luxury and spacious 2 bedroom/2bathroom first floor apartment is part of an attractive complex in the village of Oroklini. Air conditioned throughout the apartment has been furnished to a high standard and is ideal family accommodation. Large wall to wall patio doors lead from the comfortable lounge area to the balcony outside with views overlooking the pool area. This large south facing covered balcony is perfect for al fresco dining to catch the morning sun or to sit in the cool of the evening! The apartment is close to the centre of the village and all amenities are within a few minutes walk away. The nearest blue flag beach is a few minutes drive away and within 20 minutes the golden beaches of Ayia Napa can be reached. For bird watchers there are the salt lakes in Oroklini and Larnaca and for the energetic a walk up the mountain to the rear of the apartment gives stunning views of Oroklini and Larnaca Bay. High speed broadband internet included in price.

A relaxing stay: The apartment is one of 20 and was built in 2006. It is surrounded by trees and beautiful gardens and is used by the owners as a second home and to escape the British winter! We find Cyprus and our apartment in particular a very peaceful place and an ideal antidote to the stresses of modern life. Sitting out on the balcony or having a drink or meal at a local restaurant is so relaxing. One of our favourite eating places is the Blue Mer Fish Restaurant at Oroklini beach where you can eat or drink with the water gently lapping a few feet away! There are also lots of bars and tavernas in Oroklini, several less than 5 minutes walk away. Several serve the traditional Greek Meze which shouldn't be missed!

More about the apartment: As we use the apartment a lot ourselves we have furnished it to a higher standard than many rental properties. We have two leather sofas in the lounge which are really comfortable and there is a TV and DVD player which is on a trolley and so can be moved to wherever is more convenient. There is a beautiful wooden table and chairs in the dining area which sits 6. The main bedroom is spacious with plenty of wardrobe space and there is an en-suite bathroom. The 2nd bedroom faces north and so is a little cooler. It has mountain views. Next to the 2nd bedroom is the family bathroom so two families can stay in the apartment without difficulty. The kitchen is well equipped and while in Cyprus we tend to cook a lot ourselves. Although there are adequate small supermarkets and a vegetable shop in the village we tend to do our big shop in the Carrefour supermarket on the outskirts of Larnaca. A Lidls has also opened in Larnaca.

Excursions: There is a bus service to Larnaca but a car is really recommended. As well as Larnaca there is so much to see in Cyprus and because it is an island it doesn’t take very long to get anywhere. The motorway is a kilometre away and once on the (very quiet!) motorway you can get to all the main attractions. One of the best beaches is Nissi beach in Ayia Napa but it can get very crowded and we tend only to go there out of season. The local beaches are fine and are gently shelving which is great if you have small children. There are water sports available from April to October. If you want a small bay without the crowds then Konnis bay the other side of Ayia Napa is a good choice. Other places that we recommend are the Troodos mountains, Lefkara (famous for its lace) and Nicosia (from where you can cross the border and take a bus or taxi to Kyrenia). Cyprus is famed for its history and there are numerous ancient sites such as Kurion (near Limossol) which are well worth a visit

About Leslie Oakshott

Now retired but used to teach business maths at Warwick University. We live in Stratford-Upon-Avon (Shakespear's town) and have two grown up children and two grandchildren in the area.

Leslie Oakshott purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Leslie Oakshott chose Larnaca region

We used to holiday in a friend's apartment in Larnaca and liked the area so much that we decided to buy our own place there. We choose Oroklini because it was a typical Cypriot village and close to Larnaca. Oroklini is a very peaceful place and the apartment is in a small complex and surrounded by attractive gardens.

What makes this apartment unique

From our apartment we can walk to several bars and tavarnas. We can also be in Larnaca in less than 15 minutes and the nearest beach in less than 10.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Young, middle-aged or senior - it does not matter. If you want a stress-free place to spend holidays in quiet environments with a touch of the original Cypriot village atmosphere, Oroklini village on the foot of the Oroklini hill is the spot you must choose. Not far away from Larnaca and Nicosia. My rental of Oakshott's apartment was the base for a perfect holiday. The apartment, equipped with everything you need for a superb holiday, is clean and well-maintained. Leslie and Vicky and their rep on the site, Maggie, are good value for the money when it comes to customer service.



Oroklini is the place where you enjoy the Cypriot village atmosphere in bars and restaurants, or you cook your own food and enjoy it at the balcony. Shopping facilities are fine. Trips to the many villages in the Troodos Mountains, Akamas and the wonderful beaches are a must. If calm on the beach is needed I recommend the fantastic Governor’s Beach as one of the best in Europe, Scandinavia and the UK. Black sand, white rocks and a spectacular sea view wait for you. It is on the way to Limassol less than 60 miles away from Oroklini - Visit for example the Kalymnos Tavern before or after a swim.



If you choose a trip to the mountains you should visit well known Platres but don't miss Kakopetria or Spilia - villages that reflect the variety of life in Troodos.



As a highly experienced Cyp traveller I hope to be back in Okshott's apartment for another stay.

Excellent Service and Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had excellent communication with the owner from the get go, which made the whole experience trouble free. The Apartment itself is located in a small village just a few minutes drive away from the Motorway.

There were shops open till quite late in the village as well as a couple of British Style bars.

There is ample parking and the apartment was very clean, with working AC in each room and good Wi-fi connectivity.

I really can't fault anything about our stay at the apartment.

perfect holidays in an excellent place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed almost two months in this beautiful place and had remarkable holidays. Location of the apartment is perfect. It is close to Larnaca and airport and still is situated in a quite typically Cypriot village Oroklini. You can easily reach all local amenities without a car. But still we would recommend renting one for your convenience. Oroklini is a beautiful village with lots of bars, restaurants, Cypriot taverns, take aways, supermarket, green grocery, bakeries, and many-many more. All you need you can find just round the corner. You can easily reach Larnaca, golden beaches of Aya Napa and Protaras, trip to Nicosia is about 30 minutes and Limassol is about 40 minutes. The apartment itself is very well furnished and equipped with everything you need in your day-to-day life and even more. You feel at home from the moment you step in. It is very clean and good looked after. There is a big balcony with a nice view and palm trees near by. There are a couple of nice beaches just 5 minutes drive and you can also go to Macenzie beach in Larnaca and golden beaches of Aya Napa and Protaras are just 20-30 minutes drive away. The apartment complex is very nice, clean and quiet. There are a lot of trees and flowers and a nice swimming pool. Neighbors are very nice. We had two small children with us (1,5 and 4 years) and find this place perfect for families with children. So, to summarize , we enjoyed our stay and our holiday and felt very comfortable. The owners are very nice people. Though we didn't meet and we know them only from email correspondence, I have the impression that they are really very nice people and very helpful and give you all information you ask for and it is true. So We would like to thank them for a grat holiday we had in their apartment and maybe we will come back.

Excellent apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is really close to the airport, about ten minutes. Equipped with everything you need, what is most grateful for is that the air conditioning (in August) to work properly. Services such as supermarkets, restaurants, bakery, are a five minute walk. The two bathrooms are also very useful. Of course, the apartment is very quiet, and at night there is no noise in nightclubs. Anyway Oroklini is not a noisy town.

The best, dealing with the owner, Andrew I, which (by mail) has given us all sorts of explanations about the apartment as well as to things on the island, where to eat, best beaches, etc. Also managed their agent to pick us up at the airport, and gave us the address of a car rental agency, who came to the apartment for us.

Owner's Response: Our first Spainish guests! Really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you found the apartment comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed all the email correspondence as it helps us get to know our guests better and to give you assurance that we are reliable owners. We also really want our guests to get the most out of their stay and enjoy the lovely island of Cyprus. Thank you for your positive comments and hope that you will come back to Cyprus again one day!

The salt lakes in Oroklini and Larnaca are visited by flamingos in the winter months and are a bird watchers paradise. A walk up the mountain to the rear of the apartment gives stunning views of Oroklini and Larnaca bay. The brand new airport is just 20 minutes by motorway.
