About Bridie Walsh
I live in the west of Ireland with my husband. We enjoy holidays in the sun. We were drawn to Cyprus because of the almost year round sunshine and because of the friendlyness of the people.
Bridie Walsh purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Bridie Walsh chose Tersefanou
Tersefanue is an ideal place in Cyprus from which to explore the island. It is a quaint little village with an easy pace of life yet with plenty of holiday fun within easy reach. The villagers are very friendly and helpful. We love the convenience of the area, close to beaches and hidden gems especially along the southern coast. It is only a short drive from the airport which means you arrive at your holiday destination in a very short time. Most of all we love the sunshine which is guaranteed almost all year round.

We were very impressed with the overall standard of the villa but 2 what I would say major sticking points, the biggest being the exceptionally small shower unit compared with the magnificent standard of the rest of the property, I am of heavier build and my wife has mobility problems and neither felt safe entering through the very small doors. My second point is there was no mention of the solitude of the area or the requirements to either rent a vehicle or use public transport which was not an option due to mobility difficulties. I feel people should be informed of these possible hazards so they may prepare for them.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay (my daughter and I). I have a few minor complaints. The room was very dusty, the floors, on arrival. Nothing a good hoover wouldn't sort. The picture online suggested we'd walk out or balcony and the pool was about 5 yards away. It isn't. Don't get me wrong, it's not that far away, just that the picture is taken from sun beds next to the pool. Ok, I only had 2!!
The apartments are nice. The bed was comfy. The pool is a good size to do a few lengths. It's 1.5 metres deep the all over. You do need to hire a car, I'd say. We did, it was easy enough to find and then a good base for a few days away in the car. Also there's covered parking so the car isn't roasting every time you get in!! The staff at the restaurant/bar are very helpful and friendly and the food and drink was also enjoyable.
I think that about covers our stay.
Thank you for your very helpful review. My sincere apologies for the apartment not being prepared properly for your arrival. I contacted the management team in Cyprus and they also apologised saying that there had been a misunderstanding with the cleaners. I pay the management company a fee to have the apartment cleaned prior to guests arriving and again when they have departed. In this case the pre-clean wasn't carried out. This is unfortunate and has never happened before.
The picture of the pool was meant to convey to guests an image of the pool and complex and not proximity to the apartment. Sorry if this was misleading.
Once again thank you for bringing this to my attention. I am delighted you enjoyed your holiday.
Thank you ...
... Bridie, for a pleasant month at your apartment in Tersefanou ... :-)
Glad you had a nice time and thanks for the review.
A great pleace to stay
Apartment very highly maintained and modern.
The location central to Cyprus and a great base to travel from, but is not close to beach or resorts you must have a hire car.
The management team very helpful and polite.
Highly recommend as a base to see and explore Cyprus
Great apartment in a friendly complex
We have just come home after two glorious weeks in this Lovely apartment. The location is perfect for familys like us that like to travel around whilst being near to both the beach and pool. The apartment was well equipped and both clean and modern. It was great to have a restaurant in the complex where one could relax after a day exploring. Great food and friendly staff. We are already planning our next trip and would happily stay in this apartment again.
Would use again
We stay out yearly for business in Feb and have tried a few places. This was spacious enough for two, good facilities & location worked for us. My husband is tall & fitted in the bed as no footboard (v important!). The couple who welcomed us were also very helpful. The write up did suggest more facilities on site but being out of season there was none! It was freezing too (snowed) but the heating unit did a good job.
