About Helen Chaloner
Myself and Doug have 2 children, Molly who is 15 and Ben who is 9 and they both really enjoy our holidays to Cyprus. They are quite happy spending days in the pool or playing on the beach. We spent a large number of years working for ourself and getting time off for holidays was often difficult. We really wanted somewhere that we could get to fairly quickly and easily and at the same time we wanted a certain standard of holiday, in terms of accommodation and area. We feel that we have this now as the area has some fantastic restaurants, beaches and other attractions and yet we have all the comforts from home in our apartment. The complex itself it peaceful and safe for children and has an adult and children’s pool. We live in Essex not too far from Stansted so getting to Cyprus is not too much of a problem.
Helen Chaloner purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Helen Chaloner chose Pyla
We chose this property as we wanted all the benefits and attractions that Cyprus has to offer and yet we did not want to be in a busy resort. We have been visiting Cyprus now for a number of years and always really enjoyed our time spent there. We like the fact that we can access pretty much anywhere on the Island relatively easily, so Pyla serves as an ideal base. There is a real village feel to Pyla and all the locals are very friendly here as well. We feel that the property has a lot to offer all different people and hope that guests enjoy their stay as much as we do.
What makes this Apartment unique
The reason we chose this property was due to the really large (76m2) terrace. This adds another room to the property due to it's size and versatility. A small part of the terrace is also covered. To sit on the terrace soaking up the sun with stunning views over the Pyla mountains is sheer bliss and so very relaxing. It is really the fantastic use of outdoor space that gives this apartment the edge. It is an area that can be enjoyed day or night in terms of relaxing, dining or just taking in the sun and views.

Superb apartment in every way.
This is the second time I have stayed at this wonderful 2 bed apartment in Pyla, near Larnaca.
The apartment itself is very spacious with a fabulous outdoor patio area, two great sized bedrooms and all the English TV channels you could ever want, including Sky Channels.
It's VERY close to not only brilliant amenities in Pyla itself but also Junction 60 of the motorwayfor both directions giving easy access for Larnaca and Agia Napa and Protaras.
The complex is quiet but not off the beaten track, a nice pool and very secure.
Personally, I head up the motorway armed with all my scuba gear and dive the statues at Green Bay in Protaras, sometimes shaking hands with George the Gnome who lives on the seabed nearby.
A brilliant apartment all round, sleeping up to 6 with literally everything you could ever need.
Well priced, too.
We stayed in this apartment for 6 nights. The apartment is quite spacious, modern and clean. The pictures don't do it justice.
There are three terraces which are very handy especially with the hot weather. The main terrace is absolutely huge with amazing views. The living area and Kitchen are spacious and airy. Bedrooms are cosy with comfortable beds. We felt relaxed and had a wonderful in this apartment. The owner (Helen) and complex manager (George) were super helpful. They provided prompt responses to our queries. George kindly organised a taxi to pick us up from the airport as our flight was quite late. There is also a site manager (Mike) who is also available on site to provide assistance. Mike recommended good restaurants around the area. It also helps that the area is quiet.
Our two children enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor swimming. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this apartment and left with very good memories and will be returning in future. I will highly recommend this apartment
Luxury Apartment fabulous as usual.
This was our 3rd time to holiday at this apartment. We always enjoy our vacation there. we are never disappointed. The details provided are extremely accurate. Easy to locate, layout and facilities . Huge spacious sun terrace with fabulous views and beautiful sunsets. This property is well maintained and spotless throughout. We would most certainly recommend this apartment to our friends. Hopefully we will be back there next year as to us it is home form home. 10/10.
Very good. I Love it.
We rented this apartment for the second time. It is a very, very nice apartment. This time we were three of us, my wife, me and my 5 months son. I love this apartment and would go back without thinking. Helen is a very communicative and helpful woman. She answers very quickly and without complex solutions to the questions that one has. To recommend to everyone.
The apartment was really clean and exactly how it is advertised
I have to admit the team at the property were exceptionally helpful and accommodating, although I never met Helen face to face, she was also very kind and always checking in to ensure we are having a great experience.
Thank you team and when we are in Cyprus again we will surely get in touch and stay again :)

We stayed a week at Helen's apartment. It is spacious, very clean and had everything we needed .... a home from home. The pool is great for all the family. A quiet area which at night is a blessing sitting out on the balcony enjoying food and wine. It is a secure site. Helen was a great help. A rental car is advised we will be back thank you Helen and to George as well
