About Shane Prosser
I live in Wales with my partner. Six years ago we decided to branch outside of the UK and purchase a Holiday Home in Cyprus. Cyprus is where my partners family heritage is from and on our first visit there many years ago we both fell in love with the country and its way of life.
Shane Prosser purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Shane Prosser chose Oroklini
We decided in Oroklini because of its central location to the Airport, Larnaca town and many beaches. However, we got a lot more that just that. The town of Oroklini and its surrounding areas are picturesque and full of traditional Cypriot character whilst flirting with modern living. Its an ideal location for so many reasons and we are glad we chose to live here.
What makes this Apartment unique
The unique selling point to us when purchasing the property was the veranda. With its area covering twice that of the apartment itself we knew we had to have it! We love spending long summer days from the morning right until the depths of night on the veranda. Watching the skyline change whilst cooking on the BBQ for friends and family is a delight. Then in the evening, turning on the outside lights and looking into the star filled sky with a drink just cannot be beaten. This makes the holiday, not having to worry where the sun is as its a south facing apartment you can always enjoy the Cyrus Sun.

Paradise in the sun
The penthouse is a wonderful base for exploring Cyprus. I would recommend renting a car. We spent the days visiting Ayia Napa, Limassol, Larnaka , Protaras and Paphos and then chilling on the huge veranda in fhe evenings with a bbq & a few drinks. The pool is lovely & quiet as well. Fab hosts.
Fab apartment with everything you will need
Firstly the apartment is stunning. The outdoor space cannot be improved and the indoors covers all the basics and some. The location means a car is a must if you want to get around the island as Oraklini will only hold your attention for so long but even so the supermarket and bakery are great and 5 minutes from the apartment once you work out the side roads. The freshwater pool is quiet and refreshing and is right next door to the apartment. Bring dvds if you want to enjoy the TV although with the BBQ and the outdoor space that stays comfortably warm well into the evening you won't miss it. I will be highly recommending the apartment (with a car) as the apartment has its own car port and will definately be back.
Fantastic Holiday - Fantastic Penthouse Apartment
We have stayed in Orkolini several times and would highly recommend the village.
Would definitely recommend a car to enable you to see the island - however from the Apartment it is a short walk to the bakery and grocery store and also some of the local restaurants.
The Penthouse Apartment is lovely - well furnished, kitchen well equipped, bathroom is a good size and was immaculately clean. The 2 Double bedrooms are a great size with king size beds and lots of hanging space. The Penthouse has a fantastic huge veranda that we spent most of the time we were in the apartment on!! - sunshine for breakfast, lazing on the sunbeds and late night cap with the stars. The swimming pool was usually empty and was well maintained.
When dealing with Shane the response time was almost immediate and he was always helpful and informative.
We would definitely consider re-visiting the apartment in the future - Thank you both for a lovely time!!! Michael & Mandy
Our first time in Cyprus
We stayed here for 2 weeks 11-25 August 2018 and can honestly say the apartment had everything we could have possibly wanted. Shane was more than helpful leading up to our holiday and also when i had a couple of questions during our holiday he emailed me straight back with the information we needed. There was even some basic groceries which had been left in the fridge for us which we were very grateful for as we arrived late at night so it meant our breakfast was sorted the next morning.
The apartment was everything we could have wished for and the balcony was amazing and we had many a lazy evenings sat out on there and the barbecue was a lovely plus. The pool was lovely and welcoming and many a time we had the pool to ourselves.
Thank you for making our first time in Cyprus a very memorable one.

Extremely comfortable, superb views
We stayed here as a family of four, for two weeks. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable with all the amemeties you could wish forto feel right at home. The WiFi was excellent, as wasthe the air-con but the highlight was the huge veranda! We enjoyed playing cards outside most nights and the star-gazing and planet spotting was awesome. The pool was quiet for the most part and we often had it to ourselves. There are a good choice of supermarkets and restaurants in the village and along the main strip by the beach (about a 15-20 minutes stroll away). Shane and Marios were really helpful before and during our stay and ensured we got the most out of our first time in Cyprus. This apartment is an excellent base from which to explore.The info pack has lots of ideas and maps which were useful when we planned our trips out.- Troodos Mountains, Fig Tree Bay, Kava Greco... (We hired a car which gave us lots of freedom to get around). We really enjoyed CTO beach (5 minute drive) as it wasn't crowded, the amenities were good and we spent lots of time looking for fish in the beautiful clear water. When we weren't off exploring, we found lazing in the sun and the tranquility of the Palm Imperial so relaxing. With a 15 and a 12 year old, it is not easy finding somewhere to stay that pleases everyone but this Penthouse did just that. I would absolutely recommend staying here and look forward to returning! Thanks Shane and Marios.
Penthouse Flat, Five Star Holiday
First time at this property and it will not be our last. Great location with a fantastically large patio with sea views. This property has everything you could need including your own parking space. Five minutes from the beach and plenty of good restaurants, Tavernas and pubs within easy walking distance. Ten minute walk to Dhekelia road where there is a half hourly local bus service to Larnaka and Ay Napa for a couple euro, per return ticket. Great holiday, highly recommended.
There are lots of picturesque beaches flooding the coast line of Cyprus. Some are just a short stroll from the apartment and other a short drive. The closest of which is Yanathes Beach being a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Yanathes beach in Oroklini stretches for 2km along Larnaca Bay. Heading North, by car, will bring you to Makronissos Beach in 20 minutes, the first of many blue flag beaches along the Ayia Napa coastline. All these beaches provide Sun beds and Shelter for you to enjoy.
Larnaca airport is situated 22km south of Oroklini and takes only 18 minutes to drive to. A taxi for 4 ranges between €25 to €40 to the apartment from the airport. Although it is not essential to rent it can inhance your holiday experience for exploring other landmarks and stunning sites the Island has to offer. To make matters easier Cyprus is one of the few countries that, like the UK, drive on the left hand side of the road.
The apartment is situated on the fringes of Oroklini and within a 5 minute stroll you will be in the heart of the village. Larnaca itself is a short 15 minute (10km) drive south of the apartment and
Although Oroklini village centre itself is quite small, you will find almost everything you need within a few minutes’ walk. There are shops, a new supermarket, banks, ATM’s, a launderette, pharmacy, car rental shop and two 24hr bakeries.
