About David and Rosanna McCraith

Owners are David and Rosanna McCraith, based in UK. We are very keen travellers and we holidayed in Cyprus several times before deciding to invest in property there.

We bought the apartment to enjoy for holidays, and as an investment for the future. Our children were very small when we bought it. They are now in their late teens and still love going there. They bring their friends too!

David and Rosanna McCraith purchased this apartment in 2003

Why David and Rosanna McCraith chose Limassol region

Bought as a new-build in 2003. Investment for future, and very good location. New build means low maintenance. Having bought it, we decided to let it for holidays in order to help us pay for the upkeep of owning a property abroad. Renting it out at affordable rates, as well as helping to cover our costs, also allows people to enjoy a self-catering holiday at excellent value, in a very practical location.

What makes this apartment unique

Ideal location, near the beach and all amenities, while also being very close to 3 of the larger hotels. Being on the edge of Limassol, also very easy to get out to the countryside. As Cyprus is a small island, most tourist places are within easy reach of Limassol. Both main airports are less than one hour's drive.

The climate is fantastic, and the vegetation and wildlife very interesting. Cyprus offers both fun - watersports, beach, sea, water parks etc., and culture - Roman ruins, ancient castles, local crafts, to name but a few! All the places where you might want to go, are within an hour's drive.

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the property with a group of 4 friends during August 2016. Everything was absolutely perfect and beyond expectations. The apartment is simply brilliant - big enough, comfortable, nicely furnished and with all amenities. The balcony is huge (around 538 ft2/50 m2 large), overlooking the sea, the pool and beautiful gardens. The pool is well maintained and just in front of the apartment. Overall, it's not a typical holiday accommodation, but rather a living place with personal touch - which was nice because it felt like being at home, yet on vacation. Speaking of the neighborhood, The BayView Terraces complex itself is not a resort, but a residential development. It's in the upscale area of Limassol, not far from town center. Very close to the well organized and not crowded sandy beach - just across the street, around 5 minutes walk. The area abounds with nice houses, 5 star resorts, restaurants, shops, beach bars. It's well connected to the Limassol downtown and main tourist area by public transportation. There's also a walking trail by the sea, starting just across development (at the beach) and taking you all the way to the city center. The area and the apartment is an excellent choice for both families with small children, couples or group of friends. Limassol itself, being in the middle of south coast, makes an excellent choice for sightseeing the island - which is very diverse and has a lot to offer. Last, but not least, I would like to thank Rosanna and David, who were wonderful hosts and very helpful before and during our stay. We would definitely return and would recommend their place!

Excellent facilities and a well equipped apartment.

Good location and transport links.

The owners ought to be congratulated.

More traffic and building since we last visited but that's the way of today's world.

Everything you need for a good holiday

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful villa in an excellent location: makes you feel like VIPs on the top floor. It more than met our expectations. It was well maintained and the owners and manager were very helpful. We wish that we had had more time to enjoy all it offers fully (were on a week holiday with extended family). We would visit again if we return to Cyprus and would recommend it to others.

Food was good at Malindi restaurant conveniently situated on the sea front. The Uptown Square/Chesters venue was good and popular (plenty of TVs for football). We went on a bike Cyprus tour - with Thomas Wegmuller - around Salt Lake - Akrotiri/Episkopi: not too strenuous and highly recommended as most popular family activity of the holiday.

As Arnie said, I'll be back!! Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The property is huge and well worth the rental price no matter what time of year you stay, the photos just do not do the accommodation justice. The balcony had sun pretty much all day dying our stay, which helped with drying the dive gear and topping up the tan. 5 minute walk from St Raphael Marina where we dived with Marco at Crest watersports, brilliant and friendly group! Driving to the apartment from Larnaca Airport couldn't be simpler and there was plenty of car parking in the grounds once we arrived. Owners are very nice and made the whole rental process very easy, so will definitely be staying with then again!

If eating out, get down to Chesters and tackle their huge portions. The Mongolian pork chop and Lamb Shank is highly recommended.

All in all I can highly recomend satying here as it is fantastic value for money.

Lovely Apartment, Lovely Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the apartment while i was in Cyprus for my sisters wedding, the apartment was perfect, so spacious the balcony was huge which was perfect for soaking up the sun.

The other apartments around were quiet so we also had the swimming pool to ourself which was nice. The owner was helpful and there was someone there to greet us when we got to the apartment to give us the dos and donts which was helpful.

Overall it was a great stay at a very good price and i would deffo reccommend this apartment to any1 going out there.

Car: recommended

Property located in exclusive Parakklesia area, on edge of Limassol. Ideal location from which to explore the countryside, as well as the main town of Limassol. Limassol is famous for its cosmopolitan lifestyle, with many cafes, bars and restaurants as well as the cultural aspects such as the castle, museum, municipal gardens and handicraft centre. The 5* St Raphael Hotel just opposite the complex offers most water sports from the marina. A 10-15 minute drive eastwards will take you to the famous Governor's Beach, a series of several sandy coves, where there is also a good restaurant and children's play equipment. West of Limassol takes you to Fassouri Water Park (30 mins), the Roman theatre and beach at Kurion (30 mins). Easy access to countryside northwards, Vuoni Donkey Sanctuary, Troodos and the mountains. Nicosia, Paphos and Larnaca are all within one hour's drive. From this location you can explore virtually anywhere in any direction.

Other Activities: Most water sports available at the St Raphael marina, also leisure club in hotel (daily charge)
