Paralimni Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Full air-con, on site pool, perfect for couples & families. Sleeps 4-6

New and luxuriously furnished, offers open-plan spacious living accommodation with a shared pool. Living room opens into a spacious balcony which offers a stunning sundowner, furnished with a table and chairs to enable you to dine al fresco, and spend time in the wonderful Cypriot outdoors. Easily accessible ground floor apartment which comes perfect for couples and families alike, plus the elderly or infirm.

Comfortably sleeps six (master bed, twin bed and double sofa bed), and is tucked away in the quiet Mythical Sands resort, where a pedestrian path takes you to Kapparis' Kennedy Avenue in under 2 minutes. Just 300m away is Firemans Beach with its crystal clear blue waters and sandy beaches. Offers an ideal base for a fabulous holiday with attractions and beaches right on your doorstep, but free of the endless hassle if you stayed too close to Protaras or Ayia Napa.

How to get there: The nearest airport is Larnaca which is approximately 40 minutes away by car. Larnaca is served by British Airways, Monarch, EasyJet, Cyprus Airways, among many other airlines. We would recommend car hire to allow flexibility for exploring all the island has to offer, but this is not essential since the apartment is ideally located for all local attractions. Taxis are available at the airport 24/7, but we would be happy to arrange airport pick-ups / meet and greet for guests, from €50 one way. We can also recommend car-hire suppliers.

Paphos Airport is further afield but only a 2 hour drive on an excellent and usually free-flowing motorway. Roads in Cyprus are signposted both in Greek and English so self-drive is a joy.

We can recommend a local supplier who can afford rent out travel cots, high chairs and other conveniences

Further details: Our English-speaking representative will meet you within 24 hours of arrival to welcome and orientate you, and give you a briefing pack with all you need to know about the Island, and locality. The rep will be on hand to answer any questions, and remain on call throughout your stay in case of any emergencies or issues.

On request, we would be happy to arrange a breakfast pack for your first morning which might be priceless if you arrive at night. We always get one arranged when we visit, and it is such a welcome joy. Enquire for prices when booking.

Only those guests specified on the booking form are permitted to stay at Sunset, due to legal and insurance reasons. We otherwise encourage you to enjoy all the facilities, and feel absolutely at home - and ask if there is anything you would like attended to, to make your stay memorable. We rely on you, our guests, to take care of the apartment and utilities as you would at your own home.

Explore Famagusta District: Protaras

Is a very cosmopolitan and family-friendly resort famous across the island and internationally renowned for having the finest beaches in Cyprus.

It hosts the famous Magic Dancing waters, live music shows, and the Fig Tree Bay offers many activities, water sports, mini golf, and a sea aquarium. We particularly loved Protaras by night when families seem to flock the streets in carnival mood, mingling freely as they snake their way and sample the late night shops, restaurants and tavernas that occupy the long thoroughfare.

Ayia Napa

For some raucous nightlife, head towards the famous hedonistic resort of Ayia Napa, just a few miles further down the coast line. It is home to almost every sort of bar and club you could imagine, from the wild garage clubs to traditional tavernas where folk dancing flourishes. By day, Ayia Napa's Water World Park - which is one of the biggest water parks in the world - is a must with plenty of fun for all and beautiful beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely apartment with everything you could wish for. We were particularly pleased to find the water cooler which saved us many trips to the supermarket to carry bottles of water. A great idea! The apartment was well situated for the local beaches although these beaches are small and you need to be there early to grab a sunbed. The best beach is Golden Coast Beach which has many sunbeds, is sandy and very safe for children. Kennedy Ave is just a couple of minutes walk away and we enjoyed many meals at Kavos Restaurant and Fariolos (go on a thurs and enjoy the Greek entertainment) Mello bar is great for a drink or a cocktail or 2! The on site swimming pool is very nice and has plenty of comfortable sun beds to relax on. All in all we had a fab time and would definately hope to return in the future.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed at this lovely apartment. It has everything thing you need for a self catering holiday. It is such a good location, just a short bus ride into Protaras or you can stay local as there are some lovely restaurants along the road. The local beaches are absolutely stunning. The apartment has always been clean and well looked after.

If you need any help while out there we were given a contact number for Martin and he answers any questions we had.

We got married out there this year and the owners of the property knew this and left a lovely gift for us at the apartment. This was such a lovely touch and so thoughtful of them. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to stay in Cyprus

Brilliant family holiday in cyprus

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and clean and had everything we needed for a brilliant holiday. We have 3children and they were happy with the DVD player in the evening and played in the space outside the apartment. The pool was nice and clean and checked regularly by the site developers. Kapparis has everything you need and is an ideal base to explore this area of the island. We would definitely like to return, especially when the new pool complex and spa is open. Thanks for a lovely holiday the Ralphs family

gepflegte neue Wohnung

  • 4 of 5

Die Wohnung befindet sich in einem zusammenhängenden Baukomplex. Zu dem nächstgelegenen schönen Strand " Firemans beach" beträgt die Entfernung zu Fuß ca. 1 km. Die Wohnung hat alles was man braucht, und in dem Komplex befindet sich auch ein schöner Swimmingpool. Geschäfte und Restaurants sind zu Fuß in 300m Entfernung gelegen. Manko an der Wohnung ist, dass man von der Terasse aus auf eine gegenüber liegende Häuserwand in ca 6 m Entfernung blickt. Ein weiterer Nachteil ist die Lage im Erdgeschoß, die es leider unmöglich macht nachts bei geöffnetem Fenster zu schlafen. Insgesamt hat uns die Wohnung mit leichten Abstrichen sehr gut gefallen. Gutes Preis Leistungsverhältnis.

A beautiful holiday - Una bella vacanza

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful and modern, lightly (only the bath that was without mirror), fully accessoried (left only a phon and an electrical point in the bath or near the bath when we have to dry our hair), pretty clean.

Mithycal Sand Resort is pretty, instead Kapparis and Paralimni was a little confusional; better Protaras.

Amanda (the reference for the apartment) was been wery nice. We had a problem to find the key when we arrived because i don't understand that the key was into the box, and she arrived to the apartment in a few minute to help us.

She explains us about the apartment and teach us about the devices on the apartment and about the card to enter to the pool of the resort.

She helped us also when there was an electrical problem that interested some block of the resort.

Thanks for all. My general opinion of the apartmens is very good.


L'appartamento è bello e con arredamento moderno, luminoso (solo il bagno è senza finestre), multiaccessoriato (manca solo un phon e una presa elettrica nel bago o vicino al bagno che avrebbe fatto comodo quando dovevamo asciugarci i capelli), abbastanza pulito.

Il complesso Mithycal Sand Resort è carino, invece Kapparis e Paralimni sono un po' confusionate; decisamente meglio Protaras.

Amanda (la persona di riferimento per l'appartamento) è stata davvero gentile. Abbiamo avuto un problema nel trovare la chiave quando siamo arrivati perchè non avevamo capito che la chiave era dentro il box, e lei è arrivata nel giro di pochi minuti per aiutarci. Ci ha spiegato circa l'appartamento, l'attrezzatura (davvero comode anche se un po' rumorose la lavastobiglie e la lavatrice) e circa la tessera per entrare nella piscina del resort.

Grazie per tutto, la mia valutazione in generale è molto buona.

Mythical Sands is an up and coming resort that when complete in 2016 will have a luxury spa haven, Olympic sized pool, heated indoor pool, and tennis and football courts [cue for guests to ask for a special deal when booking repeat visits to sample these delights]. Unlike Protaras and Penera which become ghost towns in the winter months, Kapparis is a year round resort and with the guaranteed year round Cyprus sunshine, this can only be termed a haven. Its main thoroughfare, Kennedy Avenue, offers excellent restaurants, and cocktail bars (many with fast free wi-fi access), bars, bakery, supermarkets, and internet cafe. All between a 3 to 5 minute walk away. Restaurants cater for all discerning tastes, from authentic Greek, through Chinese, to Italian; there are also some English pubs, and Greek tavernas. Whether a short-term or permanent resident you will experience and discover inner peace, comfort and happiness from the resort. You are responsible for your own travel insurance
