Walking distance from all the amenities and arguably the best beach on the island yet set back behind the church away from the hustle and bustle of the resort to ensure a good night sleep. View to die for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from our second visit to this lovely 2 bedroom apartment at Easter – and had another very enjoyable break. Its location is perfect – close enough to walk down to the town centre of Protaras and its shops, beaches and restaurants – but very quiet, so perfect to sit on the balcony and enjoy the sunshine and views with no disturbance from other tourists.

The apartment is very much a home from home – as described on the website. The kitchen is well equipped so that the three of us could choose whether to cook dinner at home or eat out at the wide range of restaurants in Protaras.

The weather in the first week of April was much hotter than we expected – up to 27 C – so we not only went for clifftop walks, but also sunbathed on various beaches – Konnos Bay is our favourite.

It’s an ideal base from which to explore Cyprus - a very easy 40 minute drive from Larnaca airport and only 1.5 hours to reach Limassol. We would definitely recommend it to other visitors.

good stay

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was very tidy and had all appliances and even some extras. It was good to see coffee and tea and milk and water to wait for us. It had many things that other owners don't bother to add in their apartment. But the apartment was very small for a family of 5. The living room had a 3 seat sofa which was not enough for a family of 5 to seat. I know that there were also chairs but nobody can seat on a chair to watch television. If I am not mistaken I don't remember for sure when I booked it from owners direct I think it was showing sleeping 6 persons. That also was not valid since the sofa is very thin and in general the apartment very small.

This was a clean and well decorated apartment with homely touches.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed for a family of four to live in comfortably for the holiday, including to cook and wash. We especially enjoyed being able to eat meals and relax out on the balcony.The location was ideal for us, quiet but near enough to get to the shops,cafes and beaches.

A charming apartment overlooking Protaras & the sea beyond.

  • 5 of 5

A well presented apartment located on the hill just outside the main area of Protaras. Very easy to find with excellent directions & pre arrival information & communication from the owners. We stayed for a week in mid November & went to the beach every day (did get windy in the afternoon & was dark by 5pmh) It was our first trip to Cyprus & we were impressed with the lovely beaches (Konnos Bay, Fig Tree) in the local area. Only a short drive or bus to Ayia Napa & more fab beaches (Nissi)... Great base for exploring or staying local. Lidl store 5 mins drive & kitchen well equipped if self catering. Lots of bars &'restaurants in Protaras (10 min walk) - most were closed as it was Winter but local restaurant 'Nameless' open all year & excellent home cooked food & great cocktails in local bar at the bottom of the hill on main road.

Charming well-equipped home from home in Protaras

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four has just returned from a wonderful break, staying here in this quiet part of Protaras, close to the impressive St Elias church. The property was as described on the website, very comfortable and clean, everything was in good working order and the rooms were very tastefully decorated - with many artistic touches.

The owners could not have been more helpful in providing us with many tips on local facilities and restaurants. Even in early April it was warm enough to enjoy a leisurely brunch on the balcony, taking in the scenic views across to Fig Tree Bay. There was a good choice of restaurants in the central area of Protaras and on the sea front which could be reached easily on foot. It is an easy 40 minute drive to Larnaca airport and we reached Nicosia in just over an hour by car.

We found it a perfect base for taking long coastal walks in the national

park area around Cap Greco - to Konnos Bay and beyond in one direction and past fantastic sea caves in the direction of Ayia Napa in the other. The views were breathtaking and the wild flowers at this time of year were a treat to behold.

Will definitely wish to make a repeat visit and would recommend this apartment highly to other families.
