We arrived just as Heather was finishing cleaning, so dumped our cases and sat in the shade of the garden. The apartment was very clean and the welcome pack was very............welcome! One piece of info about items supplied mentioned dishwasher tablets but there is no dishwasher.
Nestor car hire provided us with a car for 2 days which enabled us to see some of the island. The trip to Troodos is worthwhile and on the way there is a lovely small taverna called The Oasis for coffee and cake.
There are many small shops and restaurants within walking distance of the apartment although the big supermarket is a 30 minute walk away.
The 10 euro set menu at Viva Cyprus is excellent and worth it just for the dessert trolley. We went there 3 times. Phivos is average and some items ordered were disappointing. Happy Island has no set menu and the food is good, especially the suckling pig on a Thursday. Nearer the harbour is Gourmet Tavern where we had a pleasant meal but found it pricey and noisy. Limnaria Gardens is well maintained with good, clean pools and the apartment, being at ground level, meant we could sunbathe in the garden without taking the sunbeds around the pool. Definitely worth a stay.
The property is just as described, everything worked and the nice thing is that it is one of those places where you can find the essentials like salt , pepper soap and dishwashing liquid etc and it is not all empty. The place has a homey feel to it, you meet the neighbors and Dave the poolman comes by to take care of things. The village is cozy and has a number of nice restaurants, some surprisingly good - adored the steaks at the Bunch of Grapes. We were there to look at all the UNESCO sights around Cyprus, ventured to the beach once or twice and also ended up finding hugs malls in Limassol and Paphos with amazing shopping. Always came home to jump in the pool before dinner, especially the kids. Good family spring vacation, very happy, thank you!
