About Jo Apicella

We have owned Apartment Iliana since it was built in 2005 and have spent many happy holidays there as have our friends and family. However, with our son living in New Zealand, we are spending our time travelling to the other side of the world. Therefore, in we have decided to rent our apartment out via Owners Direct. It has been more successful than we could have imagined both from the number of bookings we have received and the lovely people who rented, and cared for, our home in Cyprus.

If you decide to choose our apartment, we hope that you enjoy Aphrodite Hills and Cyprus as much as we do.

Jo and Alan Apicella

Jo Apicella purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Jo Apicella chose Paphos & Suburbs

My husband plays golf; and I play tennis and we both love walking in beautiful countryside. We also love the Cypriot food! Beaches were also important and Cyprus has the most Blue Flag beaches in the EU. So when we looked to buy a property abroad, Aphrodite Hills offered everything we wanted including peace and quiet. Situated in an area steeped in Cypriot history and culture, Paphos airport is still only 15 minutes away and Larnaca Airport an hour. There are many great restaurants in the village and nearby.

We love the smell of the wild flowers particularly in the spring; the smell of jasmine is everywhere. And the sound of birds; we think all the sparrows must have flown from England to Cyprus.

Also, they drive on the left hand side in Cyprus making driving very easy. And electric plugs are the same!

What makes this apartment unique

Everything!! Our apartment is so convenient; we can walk to the village and enjoy a drink and/or meal; play golf, tennis and use the gym and spa. We also have a choice of sun or shade in our garden, and on our terraces, all day which makes it very pleasant whether it's 35 degrees plus or 20 degrees. There is also disabled access into our apartment. Free wifi is also available.

We also have an excellent on-site property manager (Nicos) who always makes our apartment so perfect for us when we arrive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We also rent our apartment via Jane's Golf Holidays. It is listed as Apartment Kyma as Jane already had 'an Iliana' on her listings in Paphos. It also gives Jane's contact details should you prefer to book via her. This is the link on Holiday Lettings for the Trip Advisor reviews:

Superb fully equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this apartment for a relaxing week in the sunshine. The apartment is perfect and has everything we want for our holiday. Spacious, very well-equipped, and so clean and comfortable. The terrace areas and garden are lovely, and a short walk to one fo the several swimming pools Location is perfect; just a 5 minute walk to the village for the shops, restaurants and spa. The free wifi and internet TV were a real bonus.

Mr & Mrs Oversby - helpful owners - perfect

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we made the booking Jo the owner was so helpful, made the whole process so easy, we were sent lots of useful information before we even left the Uk.

We arrived at the apartment at 1am, very tired after a long day travelling, so it was a lovely surprise to find a very extensive welcome pack, it was great to be able to get a lovely cup of tea.

The apartment is well equipped and has everything and more that you could ever need whilst away from home, the information folder was very useful (we even added our own details of restaurants visited.

The outside area of the apartment is great for sunbathing as the sun is on the property all day, plenty of sun beds, and chairs supplied,

Nicose the property management contact called to see us on our first morning to check that we had found everything and that we were happy with everything.

We always book our holidays through owners direct but I have to say this was the easiest and smoothest booking we've had to date. Thank you to Jo and her family for allowing us to rent your apartment and for helping to make our holiday very relaxing.

Fantastic location to town center

  • 4 of 5

Jo, one of the owners, was a dream to deal with, friendly, helpful and accommodating. The apartment was the perfect location for us as my daughter loves the Kids Club and I love to sit and read at Costa.

The apartment has everything you need, new appliances, big fridge, oven washer etc. Also, there were all the amenities you need, washing powder, washing up liquid, sponges etc.

The apt. is a great size for a small family with two rooms and two bathrooms, lots of closet space.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a nice review and for highlighting how helpful we had been. We really try to make the booking process as easy as possible for our guests as we know how stressful this can sometimes be. It's good to know that you had a happy, relaxed holiday in our apartment as this makes us happy too. Best wishes Jo

The holiday you want to return to

  • 5 of 5

Iliana is a very well maintained apartment in a lovely location close to all amenities, including three pools, tennis courts, and golf course. We enjoy it so much we return to this resort and apartment each year, which now has the added bonus of evening entertainment in the summer season in the village square and from the 5 star Hotel located in the resort. We also like the fact that it is only a short drive from the Airport along a quiet coastal road.

Very restful and sunny

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time. The flat had everything we needed, the development felt really safe and well staffed and there was lots to do e.g. golf, tennis, swimming (many pools), restaurants and bars and onsite entertainment. We didn't even leave Aphrodite Hills that much. Aphrodite Hills is a mixture if residential and holiday homes which gave it a more authentic feel, we felt. Lovely rocky beach nearby. Airport was 20 mins away - car hire is advised. Jo and Alan provided everything that we needed which made the trip stress-free. Wish we were still there!
