Venturing down to the Dhekelia road and beach front area of Oroklini you’ll find the hub of the tourist area. Luxury hotels line the sandy blue flag beaches and a whole host of entertainment to suit all ages and tastes is on offer as you would expect from a popular Mediterranean beach location. The choice of restaurants is really second to none with Greek and Cypriot tavernas, Italian trattorias, Lebanese, Chinese and sea-front fresh fish restaurants and what we can all attest to be the best Indian restaurant we’ve ever eaten at – Masalas (incidentally Peter Andre’s favourite restaurant in his native Cyprus!). There’s KFC, Pizza Hut and all of your usual suspects for quick fixes on a budget and a huge selection of bars and pubs to quench your thirst, entertain you and dance the night away in. If hitting the tourist area sounds like too much hard work be assured - simply sitting under the shade of the bougainvillea at sunset with a glass of wine in hand you’ll be content to stay until the crickets chorus in the evening and the stars appear in the clear night skies. Oroklini is a wonderful location for whatever your heart desires.

About Jill Wright

I am now retired and we live in South Lincolnshire with our dogs and just down the road from our family and 3 Grandchildren. When we go away they look after our 3 dogs for us so that they don't have to go into the kennels !! We spend as much time as possible out in Cyprus as it is our home from home as well and we like to think that our guests think it is homely, with excellent facilities, comfortable and above all clean.

Jill Wright purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Jill Wright chose Larnaca region

Set against a mountain backdrop yet only moments from the beach, Oroklini boasts stunning scenery, a traditional Cypriot village character yet easily accessible modern facilities. Situated just 10 minutes drive from the historic city of Larnaca – famed for its palm tree lined promenade - the airport is only a 15 minute ride away, 40 minutes brings you to the capital Nicosia and just 25 minutes delivers you to the world-renown beaches and night life of Agia Napa and Protaras. Oroklini really is a superb base to explore the island at your leisure. The village itself has expanded in recent years from the original old settlement which still resides at the foot of the beautiful mountain. Here you can lose yourself in the winding narrow streets and stone built traditional white washed houses.

What makes this apartment unique

There are trees bearing pomegranates, lemons, prickly pears and the heady scent of jasmine. For those dreaming of the perfect picture book old world style village that hasn’t been ruined by mass modernisation - look no further. Whilst you can enjoy the historic treasures in the village you can also be assured that all amenities you could ever require are right here on your doorstep. Oroklini is famed for its tavernas and has an excellent reputation throughout the island for serving great food at prices to suit all budgets. 24 hour kiosks, a modern supermarket and bakeries mean you are never caught short on essential supplies and delicious baked goods. Pirilos bakery serves fantastic ice-creams too. Both traditional and modern coffee shops and bars are dotted around the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had another great family holiday in Oroklini at this fabulous apartment not always easy with 3 small children - central location easy for trips out to attractions or the beach - this was our third visit and we will hopefully be going back again next year

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach and the coast is approximately 1/2 mile away it takes 2/3 minutes in a car and approximately 15 minutes to do the downhill walk. The best beaches are a little further away one in Ayia Napa and the other at fig tree bay Protoras - however there is an excellent clean and quiet beach at Dhekalia which is available to visitors

Travel:

The nearest and closest airport is on the far side of Larnaca it takes around 20 minutes to reach the apartment by car - our British agents will do pick up's from the airport and the return journey we do recommend car hire to fully appreciate all that Cyprus has to offer. We can recommend car hire companies if you prefer to pick up a car at the airport and send driving directions.

Further Details:

We have a folder in the apartment with lots of information about local shops, restaurants, supermarkets and other places of interest that are located within easy travelling distance

Super apartment - good location and parking

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment for our first week in Cyprus to explore the east side of the island. The parking was allocated for the hire car and there are very quick links to the A2 to Nicosia, A3 to the Cape Gkreko area and A1 to Limassol. Nothing was more than an hour away tops. The apartment is well furnished and has a pool view and very good size balcony where atleast 6 people could eat out on it. The kitchen was well equipped, and internet can be paid for locally at a very reasonable rate. Two nice good size bathrooms and plenty of hot water due to the solar panels doing their job. The apartment is situationed in a village about half an hour away from the airport - with tarverns to eat in and a 24 hr bakery 5 mins walk and a supermarket. There is a little gym that can be used for free and the neighbors are very helpful - one having to arrange for his friend to jump start our hire car as the battery was dead due to owner error! The owner is also very helpful and all pre arrival paperwork is well organised. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

Our welcomed return visit.

  • 5 of 5

Following a 3 year break we returned to this property and was delighted to find it all as crisp and bright as our previous visit. Very little had changed (except some furnishing upgrades) the views from the balconies had changed slightly due to adjacent tree now offering some welcomed shading to the balcony.

Our arrival pack was supplied as requested (yes Keo beer, but after a long journey that was all we wanted).

The apartment was in a nice clean condition with everything supplied as previously arranged, the very comprehensive information folder was also used extensively during our stay.

The fully fitted kitchen allows you the choice of eating out or eating in, the local produce being very competitively priced especially at the new local store.

We enjoyed the authentic Greek style menu several times at NYK's and ventured to Cambonella's for a blow out Sunday lunch (too much for me).

There so many restaurants within a couple of miles that choice sometimes is very difficult.

During our visit the weather was abnormally hot so our favourite trip out was into the Trudoss mountains where the cooler, fresher air was very welcomed.

We would (and have already) recommend this apartment to our friends.

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in many apartments in Cyprus, this one was by far the most comfortable with a real feeling of home from home.

The apartment has everything you could possibly need (fans AND air con!!) and was located in a convenient place for both local amenities and for travelling further afield.

Would definitely book again!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Quiet area, with what you need nearby. Short drive to Larnaca and Ayia Napa. The apartment was clean and tidy. Fine furnish. The beds were hard, but it went smoothly. Children friendly. Maybe a little too quiet for youngsters. Clean pool in the middle of the complex. Very happy and would go back.

A wonderful apartment, and a fab holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Cyprus in April with our 10 month old baby. We had a great time. Jill had been most helpful from the time we first enquires about the apartment right through until being there. We were able to use a travel cot and high chair provided which was really helpful. The apartment itself is lovely and even better than the photos show. It had everything we needed and was clean and in excellent condition. We used the pool before we left as it had warmed up enough and it was also clean and well maintained. We hired a car and travelled all over the island to take in as much as we could. We also walked into the village most days and ate in local restaurants which were fab. We can't recommend booking with Jill enough. Nothing was too much trouble which is so good to know especially when travelling with a young family. The weather was also just right, in the low to mid 20's each day. We would be very happy to book with Jill and stay at the apartment again. We had a great first family holiday.

Easter Holiday 2015

  • 5 of 5

Super holiday. 5 Star accommodation and surroundings. Excellent location for beach and shops alike. We went just before the schools broke up and the weather was plenty warm enough for going to the beach and swimming in the sea. Not so warm in the pool, but this wasn't a problem. You ideally need a car in order to get to the shops and restaurants, but can manage without as there are small shops and tavernas within walking distance.
