The choice of restaurants is really second to none with Greek and Cypriot tavernas, Italian trattorias, Lebanese, Chinese and sea-front fresh fish restaurants and what we can all attest to be the best Indian restaurant we’ve ever eaten at – Masalas (incidentally Peter Andre’s favourite restaurant in his native Cyprus!). There’s KFC, Pizza Hut and all of your usual suspects for quick fixes on a budget and a huge selection of bars and pubs to quench your thirst, entertain you and dance the night away in. If hitting the tourist area sounds like too much hard work be assured - simply sitting under the shade of the bougainvillea at sunset with a glass of wine in hand you’ll be content to stay until the crickets chorus in the evening and the stars appear in the clear night skies. Oroklini is a wonderful location for whatever your heart desires.

About Jill Wright
I am now retired and we live in South Lincolnshire with our dogs and just down the road from our family and 3 Grandchildren. When we go away they look after our 2 dogs for us so that they don't have to go into the kennels !! We spend as much time as possible out in Cyprus as it is our home from home as well and we like to think that our guests think it is homely, with excellent facilities, comfortable and above all clean.
Jill Wright purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Jill Wright chose Oroklini
Set against a mountain backdrop yet only moments from the beach, Oroklini boasts stunning scenery, a traditional Cypriot village character yet easily accessible modern facilities. Situated just 10 minutes drive from the historic city of Larnaca – famed for its palm tree lined promenade - the airport is only a 15 minute ride away, 40 minutes brings you to the capital Nicosia and just 25 minutes delivers you to the world-renown beaches and night life of Agia Napa and Protaras. Oroklini really is a superb base to explore the island at your leisure. The village itself has expanded in recent years from the original old settlement which still resides at the foot of the beautiful mountain. Here you can lose yourself in the winding narrow streets and stone built traditional white washed houses.
What makes this Apartment unique
A fun trip for the whole family; Aphrodite 11 from Agia Napa Harbour, departure 11.15am daily returns 3.45pm. Around E25. Takes you to Protara, sea caves, Cape greco, Konnos Bay & see the view of the deserted high rises of Famagusta. This is a very clean, comfortable and friendly boat, snorkel equipment provided FOC.There are trees bearing pomegranates, lemons, prickly pears and the heady scent of jasmine. For those dreaming of the perfect picture book old world style village that hasn’t been ruined by mass modernisation - look no further. Whilst you can enjoy the historic treasures in the village you can also be assured that all amenities you could ever require are right here on your doorstep. Oroklini is famed for its tavernas and has an excellent reputation throughout the island for serving great food at prices to suit all budgets. 24 hour kiosks, a modern supermarket and bakeries mean you are never caught short on essential supplies and delicious baked goods. Pirilos bakery serves fantastic ice-creams too. Both traditional and modern coffee shops and bars are dotted around the village.

Excellent and well equipped apartment in a location close to shops and the beach!
We had a great holiday again in Cyprus and we choose different places to stay. This apartment is very comfortable and well equipped in a nice location near Larnaca.
There is a nice pool available however we prefer the beach and we traveled every day to the Larnaca KOT beach (on the Dhekelia road) which is only a 10 minutes drive from the apartment.
There is plenty of parking at the Carisa complex however for the first two weeks of August it’s quite busy. However, we managed to find parking every day and that was not an issue.
Overall we had a good time and we would recommend this apartment to anyone who is interested to spend some time in the Larnaca area.
Excellent Apartment, facilities and location
We loved this property - it's two lovely large balconies that catch the breeze and they look over the pool. I am not usually a "Pool" person but this one is gorgeous and it drew me in almost every day. It clean and warm most of the time and often it was just me swimming.
The apartment is so very comfortable with everything you can think of. We were able to drop our bags and thoroughly enjoy our stay. Jill, the owner. has thought of everything to make a stay super comfortable and it was.
Due to the close location of Goldfish beach, I was able to drive there to have my early morning run. It took at max 3-4 minutes.
There lots of places to eat close to the apartment or on the Dhekelia Road and the owners enjoy our favourites too. You do need a car to get around successfully, but car hire is cheap.
My wife has some difficult walking or climbing and there was a lift which always worked and never let us down. People were either cleaning the pool or sweeping up every day, which was also impressive.
The Aircon in our room leaked one evening and we reported it and it was mended by early the next morning. Impressive and caring - thank you! Plus I mucked up the safe code and that was also changed almost immediately. We had an amazing visit so thank you, Jill, Angela and all at the complex - you are a class act!
What a lovely kind review - thanks so much for looking after our much loved home from home. We would love to welcome you bsck at any time valued guests are always welcome to return. Thanks ftom Jill and family.
Immaculate apartment, had everything you needed and Jill the owner was very helpful.
Thanks for your review welcome back anytime
Super apartment - good location and parking
We chose this apartment for our first week in Cyprus to explore the east side of the island. The parking was allocated for the hire car and there are very quick links to the A2 to Nicosia, A3 to the Cape Gkreko area and A1 to Limassol. Nothing was more than an hour away tops. The apartment is well furnished and has a pool view and very good size balcony where atleast 6 people could eat out on it. The kitchen was well equipped, and internet can be paid for locally at a very reasonable rate. Two nice good size bathrooms and plenty of hot water due to the solar panels doing their job. The apartment is situationed in a village about half an hour away from the airport - with tarverns to eat in and a 24 hr bakery 5 mins walk and a supermarket. There is a little gym that can be used for free and the neighbors are very helpful - one having to arrange for his friend to jump start our hire car as the battery was dead due to owner error! The owner is also very helpful and all pre arrival paperwork is well organised. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your Christmas Holiday at our apartment - we hope that you will join us again maybe at a different time of year to photograph the Island in a different season xx
Our welcomed return visit.
Following a 3 year break we returned to this property and was delighted to find it all as crisp and bright as our previous visit. Very little had changed (except some furnishing upgrades) the views from the balconies had changed slightly due to adjacent tree now offering some welcomed shading to the balcony.
Our arrival pack was supplied as requested (yes Keo beer, but after a long journey that was all we wanted).
The apartment was in a nice clean condition with everything supplied as previously arranged, the very comprehensive information folder was also used extensively during our stay.
The fully fitted kitchen allows you the choice of eating out or eating in, the local produce being very competitively priced especially at the new local store.
We enjoyed the authentic Greek style menu several times at NYK's and ventured to Cambonella's for a blow out Sunday lunch (too much for me).
There so many restaurants within a couple of miles that choice sometimes is very difficult.
During our visit the weather was abnormally hot so our favourite trip out was into the Trudoss mountains where the cooler, fresher air was very welcomed.
We would (and have already) recommend this apartment to our friends.
Thanks for your review - we are always trying to keep the apartment updated and in good order throughout so that everything is fresh and clean when guests return - you will be very welcome to return again when you feel like another trip to the beautiful Island of Cyprus.
A real home from home
Having stayed in many apartments in Cyprus, this one was by far the most comfortable with a real feeling of home from home.
The apartment has everything you could possibly need (fans AND air con!!) and was located in a convenient place for both local amenities and for travelling further afield.
Would definitely book again!
Thanks so much for your fantastic review - you will always be welcome at our apartment and I hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back at some time in the future xx
The nearest beach and the coast is approximately 1/2 mile away it takes 2/3 minutes in a car and approximately 15 minutes to do the downhill walk. The best beaches are a little further away one in Ayia Napa and the other at fig tree bay Protoras - however there is an excellent clean and quiet beach at Dhekalia which is available to visitors
The nearest and closest airport is on the far side of Larnaca it takes around 20 minutes to reach the apartment by car - our British agents will do pick up's from the airport and the return journey we do recommend car hire to fully appreciate all that Cyprus has to offer. We can recommend car hire companies if you prefer to pick up a car at the airport and send driving directions.
We have a folder in the apartment with lots of information about local shops, restaurants, supermarkets and other places of interest that are located within easy travelling distance
