Apartment in Universal Area, Kato Paphos, Paphos, South Cyprus, Cyprus
About Tina Angus
Paul and I (Tina) live in Romford, Essex. We are a couple that both work fulltime and love great holidays. We bought our apartment off plan in 2003 and took possession in Oct.2004. We use the apartment 4/5 times a year. Where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the country. We keep the apartment in great order as its home from home. The people of Cyprus are extremely friendly and make families feel welcome whether its in their shops or restaurants. We are more than happy to tell you more.
Tina Angus purchased this Apartment in 1994
Why Tina Angus chose Universal
We love Cyprus because of the fantastic facilities in the area. There are some beautiful beaches and the marina boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Paphos airport Approximately 20 minute drive away.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Tina is really easy to deal with and allowed me a late check out. She arranged taxi transfers with Tony who lives on the same complex. Really straightforward.
Complex is quiet and often you can have the pool to yourself.
Apartment is really well equipped if you want to cook and it is only a 10-15 min stroll to the beaches and coastal walkway.
Nothing us too much trouble with any minor issues dealt with immediately.
Complex is a mix of residents and tourists who are all very friendly. The Farm supermarket is a couple of mins away for basic needs and the main supermarket "Paps" is about a 15 min gentle stroll.
Looking forward to going back.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Apartment was fully equipped. Nice and quiet. Easy to walk to harbour, restaurants etc. Will use again.
Paphos fun in the sun
Holiday arranged by a friend as he knew the area so really had no idea what to expect. Very pleasantly surprised on arrival. Excellent location within 15 mins. walk of seafront where there are very nice restaurants and bars.
Only slight niggle is the lack of info in the apartment about how to use things like tv, safe, and the fact that it takes quite a few minutes of running taps for hot water, to the point where you become quite concerned about wasting water. These are only little things and did not spoil our stay and would definitely book again
I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. Im sorry to hear about the few bad encounters you had . Tv instructions are in the blue folder with all the other information about the apartment but will double check it’s all there.
Thank you for your feedback.
All mod cons. Air con. Comfy bed. All you can ask for. Quiet area around a 15 minute walk into the main town. Lovely pool area

'Quiet Relaxing Complex'
Communication with Tina the owner is first class.Tina answered all my questions before I initially booked making my decision to book with her a no brainer.She arranged for my taxi transfer to and from the airport and even granted us a late check out.The apartment is a very good size for a couple,it has a large patio,your own personal sunbeds,excellent WIFI,a large screen smart TV with full SKY programme package,washing machine,air con,plenty of wardrobe space,just all the comforts of home really.Most days we had the pool to ourselves,all the other residents/guests were very approachable and would help with any problems that may occur regards the apartment or advice where to eat or bus information.We would walk into Paphos,it took between 15-20 minutes to get to the promenade/harbour then catch the bus back to the apartment.The bus fare was €1.50 then after 9.00pm it would rise to €2.50,so the Universal district location doesn't need to be an issue.We went the first 2 weeks in September and the weather was incredibly hot,mid 30's every day but with the pool on your doorstep and air con to cool the room made this a pleasant stay.Would hope to stay at this complex/Tina's should I return to Paphos.
