The Barn is so called because it originally started it's life as a place to store hay & grain for our horse, donkey, goats & chickens. However, as we gradually switched our source of income from animals and an organic garden to providing accommodation for those looking for peace and quiet, we slowly converted the Barn into the modern house which it has now become.
It is surrounded by fruit trees, oleanders, Virginia creeper, vines & flowering shrubs. There is a large shady patio & another sitting area under the shade of a large pine tree.
We have incorporated as much wood, terra-cotta & native materials as was possible during the conversion & it has developed a distinctive character all of it's own.

Not a great deal more to add than other reviewers. The Barn is very relaxed and comfortable. The pool is great and although unheated is very warm in August. You need a car but are only a few minutes drive from Troulos for lots of bars and restaurants. Beaches everywhere and lots to do elsewhere. Geof picks your luggage up...

Management response:

Many thanks, Dan. We'd love to see you back again. Geof.

We stayed one week, two adults and 5 teenagers. We had a fantastic stay, barbecue by the pool and relaxing in the sun. The hosts are very helpful and welcoming and we would love to come back in the future.

We absolutely recommend staying at the Baldry's rental in Zorbades. Either the Barn or the Farmhouse is a delightful spot to unwind, decompress, relax, and enjoy nature! The swimming pool is fantastic, the people the very BEST, and the sights/smells, etc just perfect. They are true hosts and are there when you need them for any detail you need to...
