About Dawn Bonney
We are a family of 5 who enjoy the freedom of Apartment Holidays in a Country that has, on average, 340 days sunshine a year.
Dawn Bonney purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Dawn Bonney chose Universal
As a family of 5 it can be rather difficult to find a holiday package without incurring extra costs for under/over occupancy. We decided to invest in the apartment to allow us to take advantage of the Cyprus 340 days sunshine a year. We have spent many happy years at the apartment and often refer to it as home from home. Paphos is great and has something for everyone.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Lovely apt in a quiet complex. The apt had air con in living room and both bedrooms which was needed during our stay. Good sized balcony to soak up the sun if you didn’t fancy lying by the pool. The pool was well maintained. Lovely touches included a welcome pack in kitchen with beer, wine, water, sodas, coffee and crisps and another in bedroom which included toiletries and other items. The owner Dawn kept in touch prior to our arrival and during our stay and even advised us during stay that we didn’t have to leave by check out time as she knew we had a late departure from airport.
The apt was a 10-15 min walk from harbour which gave access to lots of restaurants etc. A few mins walk from apt were a couple of local shops and Pambis restaurant which served breakfast, lunch and dinner at reasonable prices and both food and service were great.
Had a great stay and everything was just as Dawn stated. Apartment and complex very good with good pool. Everything you need for a great holiday. Bus service is excellent only wish UK. Could run a service as good. Would recommend this and hope to go back some day. Only minor thing was the T.V system as it only has cyprus channal.s and a upgrade would be good with English channels. All in all rate at 5
Hi Colin, many thanks for the 5 stars, it is very much appreciated. Yes unfortunately the Cyprus TV system is not great on the UK/English channels and so I do try hard to keep the many DVDs and box sets updated. Maybe an option for those who are interested in more TV is to consider upgrading on the wifi, in future, to allow more downloading - would that work ?
Great location. Great apartment. Fantastic owner
We love staying in the universal area so this apartment was ideally located for us. It is on a lovely complex with a great pool and within walking distance of a farm shop, bus stop and Pambis - a real value for money restaurant.
The apartment was clean and had everything we needed.....and more.
Dawn (the owner) is the best we have dealt with over the last 7 years. She was excellent at communicating to us, from the moment we booked the apartment, to checking in with us whilst we were there.
Her thoughtfulness in providing a pretty bag of travel size toiletry essentials and a well produced book on the apartment and surrounding area is something we have not seen in any of the other houses or apartments we have stayed in......and many of them were more expensive!
We travelled as a couple, but, as the second bedroom has bunk beds this would also suit a family.....and the kids will love the pool area with its own little bridge
If we are travelling on our own again we would definitely stay here again - we sometimes travel with another couple, so the bunk beds would not suit us then, but, that would be the only time we wouldn’t consider staying here
great apartment + holiday
I can just echo what other reviewers have written, really nice apartment to stay (especially liked that there are blackout curtains; and the owner is really kind and available over the net), the pool is also great (big and deep enough, not crowded, clean without heavy chlorine taste), and Cyprus is wonderful. Our only minor concern was about the cleanliness of the equipment (fridge, washing machine, oven), but still I recommend the apartment sincerely.
Hi Laszlo, I am very sorry to hear about the cleanliness of the kitchen appliances, especially the fact that two of them where brand new purchases in May. As per my personal email to you, I am very sorry to hear this and will have the this addressed, to avoid this happening in the future. Many thanks for bringing it to my attention.
Great little appartment
The owner kept in touch, the appartment had everything we could have wanted. It was in a great location for us; in walking distance to the harbour area, bars, restaurants and beaches. It was clean with a nice shared pool and car park for our hire car. You don't need a car but we really enjoyed getting out and about around the area to the hill villages and other beach areas. We would stay here again.
Hi Lynne, apologies for the delay in replying to your review. We are very pleased to hear that you had a great stay and, of course, we would love to welcome you both back in the future. Best regards
Would strongly recommend it
All went well, apart was as described, clean, spacious and central. Shops near, ok for walkers better for drivers. Owner was in touch and helpful. Enough info to hand. Walk in shower a god send. 32 or 40 inch TV would be nice.
Many thanks for your review George, much appreciated. Glad to hear that everything was to your liking - we will work on the TV ;-) We also hope that we have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. best regards Dawn
