“Fantastic, peaceful getaway”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at the garden apartment for peace and quiet away from all of the main resorts and thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility although still being able to do plenty of sightseeing.

The garden apartment was extremely well furnished, having a superb kitchen area and lounge area and was a real home from home. It had been decorated to a high standard and certainly met with our extremely high standards.

We loved the fact that there were an endless supply of lemons for our gin and tonics and also fresh eggs and salad straight from the grounds. We had the pool area and grounds to ourselves for the week but the owners were also on hand to offer advice and any assistance without being intrusive and supplied a much appreciated welcome pack of food

Would thoroughly recommend to those who want to experience the real Cyprus away from the major resorts without being too remote

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated.

The one thing that comes up time and time again from visitors is how much they enjoy the peace and quiet at Vavla... glad you were able to enjoy it too.

The chickens are certainly earning their keep at the moment! We are getting around 18 eggs a day so it's eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner just lately. Having a fresh egg is so different from what you normally get in a supermarket - they just taste and look so much better.

If you should ever come out our way again we would love to welcome you back to enjoy a bit more peace and quiet.

“A haven of peace and tranquillity”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Set in the foothills of the Troodos mountains this little gem gives you a taste of the 'real' Cyprus.Located away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy hot spots yet within easy reach of them if you want via the good road network. A drive up into the cool of the hills affords views of stunning scenery and picturesque little villages that have changed little over time. The two apartments are furnished to an extremely high standard and the owners Neal and Shane are on hand, in a low key way, to offer any help and advice you may need. There are fresh eggs from the chickens, lemons from the trees and a lovely pool, we love it here!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated.

You are right when you say we are away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist strips - thank goodness! :-) But with the motorway just 15 minutes drive away down the hill (10 if you drive like a local!) you can get to most places in Cyprus fairly easily.

Thanks for the positive comments about the apartments - it is a continual process to keep them up to standard.

Finally, thanks for visiting and we hope to have your company again soon.

“Lovely apartment in out of way location”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The apartment itself is lovely - it has everything you need for a self catering holiday.
We travelled with our 2 year old - I don't think that many families have come here before but we were made to feel very welcome and the apartment worked well for our needs.
It is fairly isolated, which didn't bother us but if you are looking for somewhere where you can walk to local restaurants/ pubs then you should look elsewhere. That said it was easy enough to drive to lots of different places - beaches were less than 30 mins drive away.
The freshly laid eggs from the hens were great and the pool is kept clean and looked after. We would go back.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated. You are right when you say we don't have that many children staying with us but I am glad you took the plunge and came to visit.

Lots of people love the fact that we are out of the way from the hustle and bustle of the main stream resorts. With easy access to the motorway no where is very far away from us in Cyprus... so hanging out with the in crowd at Nissi beach in Ayia Napa or trekking along the Akamas peninsular is all possible from Vavla.

Very happy that you had a good time with us and look forward to seeing you sometime in the future if you should visit Cyprus again.

“Just Fabulous”
Reviewed June 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We spent here in May and loved the location, so peaceful. The studio apartment was lovely, clean and comfortable. The pool was a relief on a hot afternoon. Neal and Shane made us very welcome and were most entertaining. We would not hesitate to stay again and indeed hope to do so in the future. I will say that you do need a car and rentals are very reasonable. A lovely relaxing week and we had a great time. Great for anyone who wants a chilled holiday.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it really is much appreciated.

May is a great time of year to come to Cyprus - day time temperatures are just right for getting out and about or soaking up the sun. And as you said, if it gets too hot there is always the pool to keep yourselves cool. Good advice about having a car as it gives you the freedom to explore Cyprus. There is so much to see and do... from ancient history through to amazing nature there really is something for everyone.

Look forward to seeing you should you be able to visit Cyprus again in the future.

“Excellent Accomodation”
Reviewed February 26, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Such a great place. You know when you find a property on the internet and the pictures look good but when you get there everything seems "tired" well this place is exactly like the pictures. It is clean and fresh and just what you need for a perfect holiday. In addition, the owners are on hand to help with anything but don't intrude on your holiday. But for me the best part was the peace and quite.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated. We are glad you found everything 'up to standard'. We try hard to make sure everything is kept fresh - we work on the premise 'would we want to stay here ourselves'.

Lots of people enjoy the peace and quiet you get at Vavla. We will often just sit out and enjoy listening to nothing especially in the Summer. At this time of year you tend to just hear the bees buzzing in the blossom of the almond trees.

Glad you all had a good time - please come and visit us again!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated. We are glad you had a good time when you visited and getting a 10 out of 10 makes us think we must be doing the right thing! We are always happy to give a bit of insider info to make your stay a bit better. We have eaten at a lot of local restaurants and have our favourites where we know we will always get a decent meal at a good value price. Looking forward to seeing you both the next time you choose to visit Cyprus.

“Peace/Tranquility/Wonderful hosts in the Hills of Cyprus”
Reviewed October 27, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have vacationed at this site three times now after stumbling upon it while searching online. It is a true find! The property is in the small town of Vavla. The property consists of two apartments for rent. A full kitchen is available for your use. It is a very economical way to spend a truly relaxing vacation. There is a pool, a bicycle to borrow, a chicken coop for fresh eggs, fruit and nut trees, and tranquility.
The apartments are decorated well and have many nice design touches. The hosts know when to hold back and when to offer guidance. Within a one hour drive are beaches, hiking, and many historic sites. There is a supermarket for provisons about 30 minutes away.
I feel relaxed and rejuvenated after each visit. We will keep coming back.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated. We are glad you found us online as we always enjoy your company when you visit. Like you, most visitors enjoy the peace and quiet so that personal batteries are recharged and renewed.

You are one of the few people that have taken advantage of the bikes - but maybe when the temperature is in the 30s it is understandable they are not used so much. But we will keep the tyres pumped and ready for when you choose to return once more. Thanks again for coming to visit.
