This beautiful 3 bedroom apartment is situated in a lovely village- oroklini. 5 minute drive to the beach and only 10 minutes drive to Larnaca town centre, which includes the beautiful 'Blue Flag' beach which is lined with palm trees, restaurants, bars & marina (Phinikoudes promenade) fantastic during the day but extremely lively at night. The penthouse is fully equipped with TV, DVD player, microwave, oven, washing machine, fridge freezer, stereo, coffee machine. You also have the use of a fully equipped modern gym ,sauna, and a large swimming pool with wonderful views. This penthouse also offers you large verandas off 2 of the bedrooms bedrooms and also off the kitchen and lounge. The large private roof garden is 90m2 and offers you sea & mountain views.
Cyprus is a beautiful island, Situated in the Larnaca region means you are only 20 minutes away from Ayia Napa which is famous for its white sanded beaches and its excellent night life. Paphos is just over an hours drive but along the way you will find Aphrodite's Rock some 20 km east of Paphos is where, according to legend, the goddess Aphrodite emerged from the foaming waves. It is good luck to swim round the rock and if you swim round it three times at midnight you will meet your true love. The Greek name 'Petra Tou Romiou' literally translates as the Rock of the Greek. There is a pleasant pebble beach and cafe at the site. A 30 minute drive to the capital Nicosia, worth the drive as you will see the divide between Cypriot & Turkish occupants. With sunshine nearly all year round you can get away from the rainy seasons and enjoy a relaxing time in Cyprus
I stumbled across this accommodation online and fell in love with the picture, facilities, etc. So I decided to book, for family, friends and myself. I was impressed with the speed in which queries were answered as well as the willingness to accommodate our every need.
Once arriving at the accommodation we were amazed on how pleasantly identical it was to the pictures posted on site. The site failed to mention the beautiful lay out of the lower floor and how huge the main bathroom was.
I must admit that the neighbours surrounding the property were so friendly, helpful and entertaining; they really made us feel at home.
There were a good selection of local shops and places to eat out. I must mention that there was a local 24hr bakery!!!!
We hired a car which we parked in our allocated parking bay. I found the main roads to be straight forward and clearly mark, but you will have to be carefully on the side round, for the signs were tricky to spot at night. I would strongly recommend that you hire car for taxi price are extremely expensive.
There is so much more I could say, but I don’t want to bore you, so experience it for yourself and I’m sure you will agree with what has been written.
I would definitely return and have recommended the property to everyone I know.
It was our first real family holiday with 3 teenagers between 14 and 17 and seaview valley was a spacious and beautiful apartment. It was very clean on arrival so just a quick wipe around was all it needed before we settled in. The rest of the block and surroundings was very quiet too.
The roof garden was a gorgeous area to eat or sunbathe in the day although we didn't get to experience it at night as we were pre - occupied with day time actives that took us up to bed time.
The apartment is pretty close to most of the basic shops, restaurants and bars (which I would like to recommend the "Greek Tavern') where we experienced our first traditional meze...amazing!!
The mountains of oroklini was a beautiful walk and view of the whole village and I would also definately recommend the little private 'Galu seaside' and most definately Nissi beach.
There was a selection of leaflets for places to go and food to order in the living room and also a selection of family dvd's...although we could not seem to get the dvd player to work, but admittedly we were too tired to stay awake anyway!
I found it very easy communicating with our landlord chrys and, very promptly he was happy to assist us with any queries before our journey began...seems a very nice guy.
I hope whoever plans their next holiday at seaview valley had as lively re as myself Andy family did...I highly recommend it and will definately think about booking there again in the future.
Thankyou to chrys for a wonderful stay
Six of us stayed at Seaview Valley apartments for a week in September while we were over for a Cypriot friend’s wedding. I’d say this apartment caters well for anyone who is decently mobile (physically) and who wants some peace and quiet. We had a lovely time and I’d be happy to recommend this apartment.
1) Beyond a doubt, the best thing about this place is Chrys, the owner. He was incredibly helpful – I emailed him with countless questions in advance of our arrival and he was quick to reply with as much info as he could help us with, including a better map than any of our friends managed to get hold of.
2) the apartment is new, comfortable and well-equipped, and the block seems secure
3) quiet location - great for peaceful early-morning sunbathing on the roof terrace!
4) very good value
Factors to note:
1) The block is set a bit out of the way, slightly out of the main village, up in the north east, in an area where other new blocks are still being built. The old part & main amenities are in the north west (10/15 minutes' walk).
2) When we were there it wasn’t as clean as I’d hoped and the pretty flowers/plants in the photos weren’t there – but after a long summer of rentals that’s not so surprising, and I’m the type to clean on arrival anyway
3) Only one allocated parking space but there are a few general-use parking spaces at the back
4) Only one set of keys so we needed to plan logistics between the 6 of us carefully (but we never asked ask Chrys for extra keys, which perhaps he might have been able to give us)
5) Chrys recommended a particular hire car company to us, and it definitely checked out best. Other companies had hidden charges and friends were stung. Ask Chrys for the info.
6) Lots of info in the book at the apartment re good tavernas etc - maps, too, DVDs etc.
7) There is another block of apartments (roughly in the south west of the village – ignoring anything south of the highway) called Seaview Apartments so be sure to direct your taxi to Seaview Valley apartments in the north east of the village.
8) We had a bit of a bad experience with one set of neighbours who picked fights twice about parking issues. Probably tired from bad past experiences, but it came as a shock to us well-behaved guests!
Ultimately it depends what you're looking for but my main concern is always location, condition and positive interaction with the owner - and on that basis this place is definitely a good all-round option.
Our stay in Seaview Valley Penthouse was excellent. The apartment offers the essentials for the basic needs and wants for a relaxing stay. The apartment was spacious and clean. From walking into the apartment you automatically feel at home.
The three bedrooms were basic but clean, although I must admit that my only flaw is I pulled the short straw with my sister and we ended up sleeping in the room with the bunk beds and although nothing was wrong with them, if anything made bed time a little more entertaining trying to climb up in a small space. (we are 24 and 26 so you may see what I am talking about)
The bathroom and the ensuit again were clean and the power shower was amazing. The upstairs toilet is very handy too as it would mean you have to go all the way downstairs every time.
The kitchen was again clean, basic, but for what we used it, it was ideal. Seating on the balcony made breakfast relaxing. The roof top garden was equally relaxing and although the views weren't breathtaking they weren't obstructed either.
For the time of year the pool was understandably a little too cold to be able to enjoy it, but it looked clean and a comfortable surrounding too.
Over all the complex is serene and very peaceful, and clearly well maintained. It is ideal for those who want a place to relax however a car is a must. It is a nice 15 minute walk to the bakeries but to get to Larnaka itself it is a bit further.
One more thing, when visiting the Village of Oroklini, it is a MUST to try the Taverna called Voreas it does a traditional Meze and the word delicious doesn't give it justice. Reasonably priced too, the house wine also is a recommendation too. Just one warning; go when you are exceptionally hungry as the dishes are never ending. Great atmosphere too.
My 2 sisters and myself stayed here for a week at the beginning of December and were more thank happy with the property and the location.
The apartment is fitted out with everything you could ever need, it was spotlessly clean, furnishings modern and comfortable and beds very comfy. The roof top terrace was used for breakfast and some sunbathing when the sun came out.
It felt very safe and secure with excellent security system.
We never used the leisure facilities but had a look at them and they were fine.
I would certainly reccomend this apartment to my friends.
Many thanks Chris for a lovely break.

We went out to Cyprus for my best friends wedding, and had been left to our own devices to find accommodation etc, I found this apartment by chance and was really happy when I found out the price and that it was available. With this being the first time I had privately rented some where, I was very dubious to whether or not everything would go smoothly.
In our party their was myself and my wife, and a friend of ours with his pregnant wife.
Chrys (the owner) was extremely helpful and was always willing to help regarding any info or queries I had or needed.
The apartment is absolutely beautiful, and only 20 min taxi from the airport, which Chrys can arrange if needed, the pictures in the add don't do the place justice, on arrival we were met by Alan, one of the management reps, who gave us the keys and showed us round the place, as it was early hours of the morning (2.00) he wasn't able to show us the whole complex. The following morning, we received a visit from Brenda, another management rep, who was lovely and gave us a tour of the complex and explained how everything worked, where places were and where to get what ever we needed. She put us in touch with a local car hire place, that picked us up and dropped us off and for a really cheap price with no hidden charges or deposits.
Oroklini, the local village is lovely, about a 15min walk slightly up hill, but the walk back makes it so much easier. There is everything you might need in the local village, some lovely places to eat at reasonable prices, a supermarket, few bars and a 24hr convenience store plus a few more shops and businesses. And a park for kids less than a few minutes walk away.
Larnaca is about a 10-15 min drive away from the apartment and cost roughly 10-15 euros in a taxi, depending on how good you can barter.
All in all our stay in Cyprus was lovely and the apartment certainly played a huge role in our enjoyment, we would all recommend this apartment for your stay and will be defiantly looking at going back and renting it again. Excellent value, great location, lovely people to deal with. We all agreed that we couldn't put a preference on the age of people this apartment would be good for as it caters for pretty much any age, we are aged between 25-32 but our friends also stayed in the complex at another smaller apartment (not belonging to Chrys) and their age ranged from 19-40.
Nothing but thanks to Chrys and his wife, and hope to visit your lovely place again
