A residential neighbourhood situated to the south of the village of Pyla, Larnaca region. Although sandwiched between the motorway and the coastal (Dekhelia) road the surroundings are surprisingly quiet and pleasant. The loudest noise you’ll hear are the airplanes for Larnaca.There were no night flights when we were there (month of April). The broad public beach is less than 300m distant and from some of the apartments you’ll get a modest slice of sea view.
A sufficiently spacy and sunny apt, simply but accurately furnished and practically equipped. It sleeps two comfortably, four when using the living room sofas. Self catering is an option in the basically equipped kitchen. Solar heated water in the bathroom with a possibility of electric boost. I think we had the optimally situated apartment (n°5), first floor with a large south oriented terrace. Outdoor table and chairs, 2 beach recliners, parasol. SunBay is situated on a corner, next to a tree lined wheat field. Let’s hope the views won’t be marred by building sites soon.
The apartments are rented by the sympathetic and helpful Sardos couple, fluent in English and eager to please. Some water, beer and wine will be there to welcome you. Cleaning is done and sheets changed twice a week, and some excellent bread waiting for you then. The 43 Euro per day price (at the time) is all-in.
The supermarkets on the coastal road tend to go rather basic foodwise. The village of Pyla proper is a better option. The bus to Larnaca (430, 15 to 30 min, depending on traffic,) and Larnaca airport (431, 30 to 45 min) along the coastal road go every half hour until evening, but check the schedule in winter. Upon arrival you have the choice between a taxi (25 Euros, 20 minutes’ motorway to Sunbay) or the bus (2 Euros pp, 40 minutes’ coastal road). There are several sensibly priced car rental agencies on the coastal road. Restaurants can also be found on Dekhelia road, nearby El Greco being a favourite.
