I wish more guest accommodations in Cyprus were like this one! Beautifully decorated, high quality bathrooms, fully kitted out kitchen, amazing outdoor spaces and fantastic views. We really relaxed at this property. The only downside is the village is completely dead out of season (the shop never opened) - luckily we found a taverna that was open so we didn’t starve the first night (!) and our attentive hosts (Andy and Nic) stocked the house with some essential supplies ahead of our arrival. I would also add that if you have trouble walking down cobbled steps, check with the hosts because you cannot park directly outside of the house.
The Balcony house is incredibly well designed and equipped with mods and cons. In fact, we would need a far longer stay to understand all its features! The village location at the start of Trodos mountains with good views is close enough to get to the coast within around half an hour, and means a car is almost necessary. There are a few quiet tavernas in Vouni. but the supermarket is poorly stocked and operated irregular hours. Andi, who hosted the property for us, is very approachable, helpful and thorough.
We stayed one week at the Balcony House for our honeymoon. After the craziness that all weddings bring this was the perfect place to chill and soak up the sun in absolute peace. Carolines house is beautiful with lots of local areas to explore if desired.
Thank you Caroline for such a lovely stay!

An amazing house and pool, beautifully renovated with some touches of luxury throughout. With bags of charm it’s a real gem of a place in a very peaceful and authentic village off the tourist trail. We had an incredibly relaxing week. Simply wonderful!
We loved every aspect of this holiday home, location & views. A real getaway. The house was superbly equipped (Sonos music, books etc) , tastefully decorated with very comfortable beds :-) and we wanted for nothing. The kids had a ball playing around the pool. We loved the roaring wood burning natural fire at night adding to an already cosy atmosphere. The local wine also excellent! I could not recommend enough this property if you want a holiday family home away from it all in a peaceful Idyllic location at the foot of the Troodos mountains, yes its as good as it sounds!
The house and pool were even more gorgeous in real life than in the photos - it is a truly special house. The amenities were all pristine, the showers were powerful, the beds and pillows were extremely comfortable with a plentiful supply of towels and linens, the Nespresso machine got a full work-out and the house cats, Penny and Mummy, got fussed within an inch of their lives! The WIFI was more efficient than we have at home and the sound system (Spotify) made for some very chilled out evenings sat on the patio. Vouni itself is very (VERY) quiet, with a handful of local, friendly restaurants serving authentic food. There is a small, very basic shop in the village and the nearest mini markets are about a ten minute drive away. The streets are extremely narrow (built for donkeys and carts) so make sure your hire car is maybe not of the chelsea tractor variety! We had a Honda Jazz and this was fine. It would have been useful to have a sheet upon arrival with relevant info such as WIFI code, what to do with re-cycling/rubbish etc, but Sue and Graham were always extremely helpful and very friendly when we needed any such assistance. The pool was also very welcome after the sun, not heated, but once you were in (after ten minutes of huffing and puffing) it was wonderful! Caroline has been extremely helpful, efficient and friendly throughout the whole experience and I would thoroughly recommend The Balcony House!
a beautiful house with everything you need and more,
perfect location, great hospitality, Meticulous design.
