Apartment in Pernera, Protaras, Cyprus - Peaceful Location, Minutes Walk To All Amenities & Beach
About Norrie Wilson
I have two adult children and divide my time between Northern Ireland and Wales due to business commitments. I chose to buy an apartment in Cyprus as, after many visits, I fell in love with the island and its inhabitants and intend to spend as much time as I can there in the future. After much searching, I found what I believe to be an ideal location, quiet but within a stroll of the excellent restaurants and bars of Pernera and its lovely beaches and within walking distance to Protaras. I've furnished the apartment very much as a 'home from home' with high quality furnishings to afford my guests and myself maximum comfort and enjoyment. Its a beautiful part of Cyprus and you will not be disappointed if you decide to visit. Feel free to call me on 0775 373 9102.
Norrie Wilson purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Norrie Wilson chose Pernera
I love Cyprus. It has a beautiful climate, lots of history both modern and classical and the Cypriot people are lovely, very friendly and genuine. The apartment is in a tourist area so during the summer season there is lots happening. It is quieter during the rest of the year November to April, but as I am about 10 minutes drive from Paralimni which is busy all year I have the best of both worlds. Some bars/restaurants are open all year in Pernera, I use these months as an opportunity to travel throughout the island, visiting Nicosia, Larnaca and Limassol. The situation of the property allows you to have the holiday you wish for. It can be quiet as the apartment is just outside of the village but you can walk into the centre within 5 minutes. My adult children love the area.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property is very convenient to the village, well within walking distance. A car is not necessary. There are good supermarkets within the area and a good selection of bars and restaurants. About a 5 minute walk to local beaches through the town, lots to see on the way. The bus stop to Protaras and Ayia Napa is just at the apartment exit. The view from the balcony of the apartment is wonderful, through the village down to the sea. I love being able to sit out in the evening as the sun sets with a glass of wine, olives, humus and breads. The ideal place for putting your world to rights. As long as you enjoy some or all of the above, you really will not be disappointed with the apartment. It was bought because of its position in the village, for the view and for the quality of the build.

Home from home in sunny Cyprus
Lovely apartment with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. The balcony had full sun in the morning and was shaded later in the afternoon which was a welcomed break from the August heat. The sea view was relaxing and many a night we had great views of firework displays too! Location was perfect for us, a short stroll to a couple of bars and restaurants and a small beach. We enjoy a good walk on holiday and would regularly walk into Protaras along the top road or walk along a lovely boardwalk all the way to Fig Tree Bay. The pool was sometimes busy (to be expected during school holidays) but we never felt it was too over crowded and if there were no beds available we had some supplied in the apartment.
Communication with the owner was fantastic, as was the communication with the couple who look after the apartment in Cyprus.
Overall we loved our first holiday to Cyprus and we will be back soon.
It's always lovely to hear how our guests enjoy our Cyprus home and its perfect peaceful location convenient to all amenities in Pernera and Protaras which probably accounts for the number of repeat guests we regularly host. A big thank you for looking after the apartment during your stay, we would certainly welcome you and your family back anytime.
Very nice apartment in a great location.
The apartment was in a great location, was very clean, and was equipped with everything we needed. We even arrived to a basic welcome pack of tea, milk and sugar. The apartment is looked after by Jackie, who was very helpful and was on hand if we had any issues. The communal pool was excellent, and the fantastic beaches of pernera and protaras were only a short walk away. We had a great holiday and would highly recommend this apartment.
Thank you for your kind comments Paul. The convenience of the location is unique in that it is quiet yet within walking distance to all the amenities of Pernera / Protaras. Sometimes access to local information/activities helps make a holiday and having someone like Jackie on hand if needed is certainly a bonus. I'm glad you had a great holiday and are welcome back anytime.
The property was excellent and our expectations were realised having read the other positive reviews. It is in pristine condition ...spacious...comfortable..well equipped....an ideal base to retreat to from the busy touristy area.....a pool area that we had largely to ourselves.....no sunbed battles as these are provided from within the apartment. Walking distance to Mojito's for breakfast/lunch/dinner.....plenty of other options nearby......we had family nearby with a car so were able to venture easily into Protaras and other parts of Pernera. The yellow boat trip from the nearby port was so good we repeated it two days later.....bargain 3.5 hours of fun for 10 euro's.Communication with the owner Norrie was extremely efficient and he delivered first class customer service. We would recommend this property and seriously consider a further booking on any future visit to the area.
Thanks for taking the time to write the review John and thank you also for looking after our apartment during your stay. The apartment location is ideal for anyone staying in the Pernera area - convenient to everywhere yet quiet and peaceful.
I haven't tried the yellow boat trip as yet but if you considered it worthwhile to go twice then I'm thinking I should at least try it once!
Fantastic Holiday Apartment
This apartment is perfectly located for staying in the Pernera/Protaras area. It is very spacious, clean and well equipped for a family stay.
The large balcony was used every day for eating meals and relaxing as it was shaded for most of the day and also has lovely views. There is a large swimming area which was never over crowded and the apartment has it's own sun beds, umbrella's. lilo's etc. Airport transfer's were arranged through Jackie and Tony who ensure that all your needs are looked after. We will definitely book this apartment again when we return to Cyprus - thank you Norrie!
Your kind comments are much appreciated Lindsey and thank you for looking after our apartment during your stay. It really is perfectly located in Pernera as it's quiet and relaxing yet within a short stroll of lovely restaurants, bars and the beaches. You're very welcome to return in the future and become one our many repeat guests.
Perfect Base for a Relaxing Holiday
The apartment is lovely, well laid out and has everything you would need for a holiday home from home. It was lovely to sit out on the balcony in the balmy evenings and the aircon in all 3 rooms was a welcome relief from the mid-day sun when it became too hot (June). Norrie, the owner, left perfect instructions on how to find the place and some great recommendations on where to eat in the evenings. We loved it. Thanks.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review Paul. Although Pernera is next to the larger resort of Protaras I have found that overall, it has many more quality places to eat which really belies its size. Guests often remark about the benefits of the large curved balcony and the views over Pernera and out to sea.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking excellent care of the apartment during your stay.
perfect home from home in the sun.
We loved this property, it had everything we needed for our two week break and was well laid out and spacious.. Norrie (the owner) gave us loads of tips on the area like where to eat, money exchange, nearest supermarket, bus stop and lots of other useful information on the area. Tony and Jackie who manage the property for Norrie even picked us up at the airport and gave us a quick tour of the area and also recommended places to eat shop and local beaches to visit. Nothing was too much trouble for all of them and we felt like we were staying at a good friends place rather than a rental apartment. We had the pool to ourselves most days and the apartment was in a really quiet spot yet a five minute walk away you could be right in the middle of the resort. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and we would definitely stay here again.
William and Lorna.
So glad you both had a lovely time at our apartment. It really is in an ideal location with all amenities nearby. Thank you once again for taking great care of the apartment during your stay and maybe see you again.
