The white rocks which mark the western end of Governors beach are a perfect spot to go snorkelling or fishing too. There are in fact a great range of water sports to enjoy in the sea, especially sailing and windsurfing, with equipment rental and lessons readily available.

                                                          Fantastic holiday, relaxing and quiet getaway but lively Limassol just around the corner

                                                          We've just got back from our week away in Monagroulli, the studio annex was great in our eyes, the pictures didn't do it justice! 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.

                                                          A lot of highlights and some small shadows

                                                          4 of 5
                                                          We (3 German adults on business purposes) were the first renters after the four months winter break - and booked the property only 40 hours before arrival. But the house keeper made a very good job, and nearly everything was very well prepared for our two weeks stay. The villa is located a little bit outside of the village of Maroni, the next major supermarket is some kilometers away, so you better rent a car. By GPS, the villa was easy to find, even there were a lot of left and right turns. The villa has three similar bed rooms and two bath rooms with shower in the upper floor, and one bath room with a tub in first floor, where also the big kitchen and the wide living room are. All rooms are located on the southern side of the building, built in 2008. Everything you need for a longer stay is provided, maybe not always best quality, but enough and not damaged. The internet was fast (20 MBit download, 5 MBit upload). While the air conditions in the bed rooms were heating properly, the one in the living room didn't (at the end of winter time, we had temperatures by night lower than 10 degrees Celsius). But the house keeper helped us with an infrared heater, so it became warm soon. That's of course not a problem for summer time, the air condition worked well in cooling mode. There is also a gas fire place, but the room is too big to warm it properly by this. The only real problem we had, was the warm water, which should be warmed by solar panels. But the pipes at the tank leaked, so cold waters was refilled all the time. So we had to use the electricity to heat the water when needed (and better one hour before). But I'm sure, this problem will be fixed soon. So in total, we were very satisfied with this great villa - and we will come back next year!
