We stayed at the apartment over Christmas and the New Year 2018/19 and although the weather in our last week was some of the worst we have ever experienced in Cyprus we still had a great time thanks to the wonderful space and features of this superb accommodation.
The complex itself is of a medium size with three distinct sections each with its own pool area that helps give the impression of a much smaller and more personal space to enjoy a relaxing break. Set on a small hill in a local and mainly residential area, Anarita is a quiet village with few amenities. There are a couple of restaurants close by but the nearest mini-market is in the lower village of Timi which you pass through to reach Anarita, alternatively there is a larger supermarket a couple of miles away on the main road to Paphos. The airport is literally 5-10 minutes drive away and there is a quiet local beach within easy reach with a little "shack" selling beers etc and an excellent playlist from the 80's and 90's. A great place to while away a few hours for someone of our generation.
I have to recommend car hire if staying here as most facilities are beyond normal walking distance, but to be honest you would want to be free enough to explore the local area and it's easy access to the Troodos mountains anyway.
In terms of the apartment, we had everything provided that we needed with just a couple of notable exceptions, namely spare bedding, and a drying facility. We were there for three weeks and would have benefitted from a cleaning service (although to be fair to the owner this was available at an additional cost) however we chose to do our own cleaning etc and sadly due to the weather issues this was slightly more difficult due to the lack of a tumble dryer or outside hanging space. A small fold-up rack was great for clothes etc but of little value to bedsheets.
The only other issue we had (bearing in mind it was winter) was locating the water heater switch which is an unmarked obscure switch next to the main bathroom door, so Colin it might be worth taking a few moments to knock up a welcome book to explain the apartment features and how to use them for future guests?
Having said all this, we cannot fault the level of quality of any part of this apartment and we can easily see how in the summer months this would be a truly wonderful, quiet, relaxing place to stay and enjoy all the experiences that Cyprus has to offer.
I thouroughly recommend this stunning apartment to all.
Firstly Bev & Stephens communication from the start to end of the booking/holiday is great and dealt with any questions I had straight away.
We have just returned from a amazing week at this apartment.2 adults,2 teens and a 11yr old. It’s a 20 min taxis ride from airport. Everything you could want for self catering is catered for in the apartment. Spacious & lovely decorated. There is also a pool just next to the apartment. The local people in the area are all welcoming. The location is a 5 min walk from Pambis restaurant & 2 grocery shops. I would highly recommend you visit here the food& people are amazing. It is a 20 min walk to sea front/bars/restaurants/shops, harbour 30 mins but that was fine with us as we love walking and looking about. 1 day we walked 10 miles all around the old lighthouse beach which was beautiful.we also did the mountain tour which was WOW and so many stop off points that will. Low your breathe away and a tour of the island we booked through Stevies taxis for €180 euros. These were amazing days out and was blessed with great weather(these days). Temp was a average of 13-16° Dec 26-3rd jan but did get chilly in the evenings. We are definitely going to be booking the apartment again. Thank you for letting us stay.
