The apartment is excellent - modern, clean, with excellent facilities. Location is at the quiet end of Limassol, which I believe is a positive as it is a very nice end of town and taxis are easy to come by should you wish to travel to the old part of town. Be aware that the complex is incredibly quiet (silent) during the evenings therefore this may be an issue if drinks on the balcony is an important part of your trip! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue and will certainly book again.

Very clean, great sized swimming pool all to ourselves which was a god send, exceptional views overlooking the mountains and the Mediterranean in the distance. Having a car is a necessity though as it is rather remote and a good 15 minute drive to the start of Limassol. Our only concern and it was a big one to be honest was the lack of air conditioning especially considering it was advertised. We probably wouldn't have booked our stay here if we were aware of the lack of air conditioning as we both suffer from prickly heat rashes therefore air con is essential for us. There were 2 fans provided but this didn't really help much because it was still unbearably hot throughout the night meaning the only way to cool down was to take cold showers regularly and sleep with ice packs in the bed. This said, Jane is lovely and made us feel more than welcome. It was the perfect chilled holiday and Limassol is a fantastic place to explore.

It is equipped to a very high standard aespecially the kitchen. The pool is lovely with a fountain at one end and there is a big shady terrace where we spent much of our time. it is located just outside sleepy Finikaria village about ten minutes inland from the Limassol strip with its shops,bars and hotels. The area is very quiet and peaceful apart from the occasional dog barking. The mountain road down to the coast is a little twisty but it's a good road with plenty of passing space and is very panaromic. The owner is very well organised and provided us with all the information we needed including a very comprehensive map and instructions on how to find the house.
