We had a thoroughly enjoyable break based in this very well maintained townhouse in Pafos. It's location could not have been better, only a short walk into the tourist centre around the old harbour but far enough away to avoid all the noise that comes with it. The area is residential and very quiet.
The house is well furnished and comfortable and somewhere to look forward to returning to after a day exploring the island. Roland and Anne are charming hosts who provide all the help and support needed without being over the top. Being picked up from the airport and taken to the house was a wonderfully unexpected gesture and very much appreciated - even more so as our flight was five hours late! We will return!
What a charming couple! We are so glad they enjoyed staying in our well maintained and comfortable townhouse. We always ensure that everything is just right for our visitors, the house and surrounding patios, front and back, are thoroughly cleaned and everything in good working order when they arrive (we will pick them up from the airport or meet them at the house if they have a hire car). We are always on hand if they need help and will quickly respond to any concerns they may have regarding their stay, or recommendations to restaurants, places of interest, etc. as we are only a short distance away,...Our visitors can contact us at any time and we will come and visit to make sure all is okay, but at the same time do not want to be intrusive ... Some people just want to chill and want peace and quiet, and our house is ideally situated in a friendly cul de sac, well away from the main tourist areas, but at the same time within a short walking distance to a supermarket and local tavernas , local beach and harbour, shops and a Mall. This house was our holiday home before we moved here so is of a high standard, and very well equipped, which people seem to appreciate, based on our wonderful reviews,. Thanks again to this lovely couple for going to the trouble of showing other people their appreciation of our townhouse.
Not at all what we expected
It was as if we weren't expected. There wasn't anyone at the house. When Ann & Roland did arrive, the TV remote didn't work. Nothing seemed to have been checked. When they left and we started to look around we found spiders everywhere and cobwebs hanging from the furniture, lights etc. The store cupboard hadn't been sorted out. It was full of open packets, solid coffee, half used jars, out of date spices etc. The next morning in daylight we saw that the 2 rugs were dirty, there were crumbs under the sofa cushions. The cooker hadn't been cleaned, nor had the tiles, extractor, etc. We had to hunt out the hoover, buried under lilos and footballs. It was so clogged that the bag had burst and the pipe and brush were full of dirt. We should have left and found somewhere else. Instead we asked for another hoover, some more towels and pillowcases. At first Ann said all we needed to do was change the bag. This just after arriving for a month's stay. When they brought another hoover they were very defensive, saying they had never had a complaint before. Even after seeing the state of the hoover they didn't apologise. Ann did offer to get their cleaner to come and clean. What was the point when she obviously hadn't been cleaning for months. I also showed her a pile of sugar under the microwave and she just said she wouldn't expect their cleaner to move a microwave. It was also covered in grease. Ann didn't seem to know what bedding etc was available. I had to hunt for bedding & towels and found spiders & their eggs in them. Nobody had cleaned behind the toilets and the tiles were all dirty. Everywhere was covered in dust and when I cleaned the twin bedded room not only did I find dust, hair etc but used cotton buds as well. We had mould in both bedrooms and the bathroom and this got worse during the time we were there. We had little hot water when we first arrived, this was sorted eventually. Our friend went down with a chesty cold and they had black bits continually falling off of the ceiling fan, getting into their beds and on their feet. I wasn't able to clean the fans as we didn't have a ladder. I had to ask for rugs for the spare bedroom. Ann was aware that whilst I had cleaned a lot of the apartment there were many areas that needed a thorough clean, so we were horrified to find that they had let the apartment to someone to come in straight after we left. I did ask for a rebate of one weeks rental but didn't get a reply.
Experienced complainers who where asking for a free stay. Please compare and contrast against all our other reviews including the one immediately after.
Outstanding value and comfort
The house itself and Anne's kindness exceeded expectations. Anne met us from the plane and showed real concern that we had an enjoyable time in Paphos. She clearly aims to provide her guests with an outstanding holiday home.
The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped - from nut crackers and two forms of coffee-making facilities to all the pans, cutlery and glassware anyone could ask for. I particularly appreciated the condiments etc. and the drinking water tap which produced Yorkshire-quality water. The rest of the house is equally well thought out - the beds and linen very comfortable, heaters (we visited in November) in all rooms, British TV, patios and balconies everywhere. The swimming pool is literally on the doorstep. I stayed with my adult daughter but the house would be perfect for a family as there is plenty of space, both indoors and out.
The house is in a peaceful suburb between the harbour and Old Paphos, both easily reached on foot in 15 - 20 minutes. There is a taxi office just round the corner and a supermarket five minutes away selling an incredible selection of fruit and veg. We couldn't have wished for a better location.
We couldn't have wished for better holiday accommodation. Thanks so much for your generosity, Anne and Roland.
A comfortable and well equipped house in a quiet location.
The house had all we needed for a comfortable stay and is in a quiet residential location within easy walking distance of the old town and the harbour. Unfortunately, although the weather was great, it wasn't warm enough to use the sparklingly clean pool as it wasn't in full sunshine (a bonus on hot summer days though!). Anne and Roland were extremely helpful and friendly hosts.
Home from home in the sun
Had a great time ! House is equipped with everything you need . Great neighbors ; great local feline friends .
We had fun in the pool (bought a giant doughnut); that we fought over. Our stay was very comfortable - much better than a hotel - and we were the only ones using the pool ! Really liked Namaste - Indian street food restaurant - best food whilst we were there !
Thank you for such a lovely review! We are so glad you had a great time. We try to make our house a "home from home". This is what we would expect ourselves. There have many new items of equipment etc. installed in the last few months and these will, we are sure, help ensure that all our visitors have the best and most comfortable time ever...! We have repeat bookings, which obviously shows that people like our house enough to want to come back again! In this instance we will give a discount to show our appreciation.... Thanks again for taking the time to send us your comments.
Everything you needed, lots of extra. All lovely and clean. Air conditioning in both bedrooms a plus
Had a lovely stay at Anne and Roland's town house. In a quiet area but easy enough walk into Paphos and harbour. Could not of asked for more, pool, Sun lounges and outside dining. Met Anne just before leaving and thanked her for everything. Hope to be back in the not too distant future. Avril and Sharon

Huge range of restaurants between 10/15 mins walk away with excellent local tavernas as well as international cuisine (recommendations in our welcome pack, also maps and directions). Coral Bay is 15/20 mins drive away. Wonderful archaeological sites with beautiful mosaics at the local harbour. Many other historical attractions nearby, including fascinating 'Tomb of the Kings' archaeological site, very pretty in Spring with many attractive wild flowers. Boat trips can be arranged at the harbour to visit pretty bays, including the beautiful 'Blue Lagoon', whose waters remain warm into October and beyond. Other Activities: Water park, go karts, quad biking Ski: It is possible to ski in Cyprus in Winter, in the Troodos Mountains. They are just over an hour's drive away from Paphos.
