|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
The apartment is in a nice small residential block on a quiet road within short walking distance to the beach with sea views. It's an excellent location being within short walking distance to all shops & amenities, there are some wonderful cafes nearby with the main tourist area about
20 min walk. The apartment is actually in between the old port with its quaint old shops & the night life. The zoo & geological gardens are not very far either, so its easy to walk up the road and relax with a good book or watch the children play on the swings. In the evening you can walk to the promenade with its beautiful palm trees and gardens or take the romantic sea path which stretches from the pier by the old port all along the beach hotels and gardens to the other edge of Limassol.
If you want to pamper yourself, there are some wonderful hotels in Limassol where you can go and spend the day using the facilities for very little outlay.
Get the best of the town and the sea: Ever wondered what it would be like to live in a town by the sea, in a place like Cyprus which has sun 11 months of the year, you can enjoy the sea in summer or winter. Most Cypriots only swim in August. In fact 15th August is a national holiday and everyone takes their holiday around that time with most shops and business being closed for a few days at least. It is possible however to go swimming in the sea for quite a few months, starting from May to November but some people will even brave the other months. Even if you don't get to swim you can lie in the sun and watch the children making sand castles. Being in town means that you will have no problem amusing the children, we have lots going on and the water parks are a lovely idea! There is also crazy golf and bowling, the zoo and if you have teenagers you will not have to worry about amusing them. Cyprus is pretty safe and there are some really good discos in Limassol.
Dining in town: Well, food in Cyprus is a priority! Cypriots love their food believe me and you will have a big variety to choose from. Enjoy a meal in a typical taverna, we have some great fish tavernas and meat tavernas. Some sell both meat and fish Meze. The Famagusta Nautical club and the Limassol Nautical club are just down the road and you can dine on the beach, the prices are good and the food even better! Cypriots tend to dine late at night and the restaurants are open late. The Nautical club is on the beach and you will eat under the eucalyptus trees. What a wonderful romantic way to spend an evening. Most people have heard of the Kebab, well in Cyprus we have lots of Kebab places where you can eat on the premises or take away. There are also lots of places where you will find all manner of Cyprus food ready to go! There is one at the top of our road which is very popular and a very economical way to eat on holiday.
Winter in Cyprus and company short term lets: Well as we have sun 11 months of the year you can imagine why its good to winter in Cyprus. Long term rentals are available. Have you considered staying here for the winter and saving on the bills and the cold in England.
Our apartments are ideal for short term company lets. We offer very special rates for monthly rentals.

Coming to Cyprus meant a complete change in lifestyle and trying to earn a living in a country that is completely alien to you is a big undertaking. We found that being a smaller country you are limited in what you can do as a job. Neither my husband or I could carry on with our careers since he was 40 at the time and I was 33, he could not find a job as an Electrical Engineer and I could not find a job as a computer programmer. Its who you know in this country, not what you know. Its really the same whatever country you come from its just that things are more apparent in small countries like Cyprus.
Christalla Vassiliou purchased this apartment in 1984
We are the owners we didn't buy
just a few minutes walk from the sea - about 500m from the beach, Ideal for families with children , Gentle waves in crystal clear waters - the perfect setting for an idyllic lunch on our beautiful beach . Close to all amenities, Debenhams department store (formerly Woolworths) is nearby with nice cafeteria overlooking the sea.
I booked this apartment as we wanted to be close to a friend who lived in Limassol. The position was excellent - 5 minutes from our friend. I feel that as we only used the apartment as a base we could not give an overall review. For example, we only slept and had breakfast at the apartment, being picked up around 10 a.m. every morning and returning in the evening.
The apartment was clean, the kitchen had what we required and the bathrooms were O.K. For somebody staying full time in the apartment I think there were one or two small things that could have been improved. For example, a cutlery tray in the kitchen drawer, as the cutlery was thrown in with all sorts of items. The balcony had a folding dryer which I think could be said to be past its sell by date and the cleaning items (brooms, mops etc. were stuck at one end of the balcony and would have been better in a cupboard or similar so that it would have been more pleasant to use the balcony, As you can see, these are small things but they can make a difference. In the cloakroom the mirror was held together with sellotape - didn't look too good and the bathrooms were O.K. but a bit tired. This is not a criticism as overall we enjoyed our stay but I think it might help when renting out to have everything up to scratch. The owner was very helpful and pleasant and we spoke with her by telephone several times and would have liked to meet her as she obviously wanted everything to be O.K. The cost of the apartment was very reasonable and I think we had value for money overall.
Die auf der Internetseite präsentierten Bilden entsprechen nicht der Realität!
Positiv: Die Unterkunft war tatsächlich vorhanden. Schlüsselübergabe erfolgte unkompliziert (Jedoch zu berücksichtigen: Unsere Freunde haben alles bereits vor unserer Ankunft organisiert.) Die Lage des Hauses (mehrstöckig) stellte uns zufrieden: 5 Min.-Gang bis zum Strand. WLAN vorhanden.
Negativ: Man versteht sehr schnell, dass ein Diogenes-Leben-im-Fass möglich ist. Stoisch überlebten wir das alte und ungepflegte Möbel, befleckten Teppich, zerfallene Schränke usw.
- in der Küche herrschte ein gew. Nichts
- fünf Betten und alle wie Quietschenten :-)
- viele Handtücher und alle - bunt, verbraucht, als ob schon Jhd(e) vor uns benutzt
- Balkon nass dank Klimaanlagen
ALLES: alt, ungepflegt, unsauber und einfach unangenehm.
Zum Überleben absolut ausreichend. Zum Genießen - Geschmackssache :-)
Limassol is a busy town by the sea. Cyprus has sun 11 months of the year so summer and winter visitors are always welcome. Our apartments are just a few minutes walk from the sea, very near the main Limassol roundabout.
There are many shops and cafes within walking distance, including a large department store on the sea front which has everything you are likely to need, including a lovely cafeteria overlooking the sea. Despite this hustle and bustle the location of our apartments, in a quiet residential area are indicative of how the Cypriot passes his time, Visitors who stay there will experience how the Cypriot enjoys the town.
The beach is just a short stroll from the apartment, about 200 meters. There is a lovely promenade which goes from old Port of Limassol for miles to the end of the town by all the hotels and very popular of an evening. It’s a great place to find locals and visitors alike.
