About Helen Chaloner

Myself and Doug have 2 children, Molly who is 15 and Ben who is 9 and they both really enjoy our holidays to Cyprus. They are quite happy spending days in the pool or playing on the beach. We spent a large number of years working for ourself and getting time off for holidays was often difficult. We really wanted somewhere that we could get to fairly quickly and easily and at the same time we wanted a certain standard of holiday, in terms of accommodation and area. We feel that we have this now as the area has some fantastic restaurants, beaches and other attractions and yet we have all the comforts from home in our apartment. The complex itself it peaceful and safe for children and has an adult and children’s pool.

We live in Essex not too far from Stansted so getting to Cyprus is not too much of a problem.

Helen Chaloner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Helen Chaloner chose Larnaca region

We chose this property as we wanted all the benefits and attractions that Cyprus has to offer and yet we did not want to be in a busy resort. We have been visiting Cyprus now for a number of years and always really enjoyed our time spent there.

We like the fact that we can access pretty much anywhere on the Island relatively easily, so Pyla serves as an ideal base. There is a real village feel to Pyla and all the locals are very friendly here as well.

We feel that the property has a lot to offer all different people and hope that guests enjoy their stay as much as we do.

What makes this apartment unique

The reason we chose this property was due to the really large (76m2) terrace. This adds another room to the property due to it's size and versatility. A small part of the terrace is also covered.

To sit on the terrace soaking up the sun with stunning views over the Pyla mountains is sheer bliss and so very relaxing. It is really the fantastic use of outdoor space that gives this apartment the edge.

It is an area that can be enjoyed day or night in terms of relaxing, dining or just taking in the sun and views.

My favorite accommodation that I have found in Cyprus

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth year staying at Helen's apartment as it is the best that I have found in Cyprus. This year I had two friends join me on this visit and they were blown away by the size and facilities available, the biggest asset is the large roof terrace patio off the lounge area with dining table for six, 4 sun loungers and BBQ, brilliant for the sun down drinks.

The complex consists of 8 apartment blocks but remains secluded and quite (no noise disturbance) and although fairly close to beach and bars a car is recommended. There is a bus that travels every hour to and from the apartments into the center of Larnaca with various stops along the way which costs 1.50 euros each way.

All self catering facilities are available, cooker, microwave, fridge, pots, plates, cutlery etc.. all of a high standard but with cheap dining available the choice is yours to explore.

Satellite TV and WIFI available and Helen's manager George is away's available if required. Weather in April was a nice 26 degrees C so no doubt I will be back again next year. Thank you once again Helen for the use of your apartment. Ali

Amazing family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say......as a family of five and not been on holiday for 12 years this was just what we needed. From the moment I booked I had fantastic communication from owner and lots of information. We have a young autistic daughter and feeling at home is very important to her and this is what this apartment offered us with lots of indoor and outdoor space...there is nothing I could of asked for everything was there. We will definitely be back.

Lovely views

  • 3 of 5

From the word "go "Helen was in communication and extremely helpful. Apartment was easy to find with the instructions supplied. George was in contact too, thank you. Weather was excellent the full two weeks. You definitely need a car. Unfortunately for us, there was nowhere to walk of an evening. Pyla doesn't have a lot to do in the village . We only went the night we arrived for something to eat, very limited. Would recommend Oroklini, lovely village. Plenty of supermarkets, bakeries etc and lovely to walk around.

Larnaca is a 20minute drive. We love the seafront there but you definitely need that car! Not impressed with the beaches locally. Very stoney and not that clean.Nicosia takes around 45mins. Busy city and trip over into the Turkish area wasn't worth the trip.

We loved sitting on the spacious terrace for breakfast and in the evening at sunset. During the day, if we were in ,it was just so peaceful. Unfortunately it seems the University has purchased a lot of apartments on the complex for students and staff and we were disturbed a lot at night with noise ,and early morning. Particularly the apartment below. This was disappointing as because of the description , we thought we would have the restful holiday we needed. It improved slightly after we complained. The only person we spoke to, a lady who lived there, said it was lovely when the University was on holiday and the students left. We didn't use the pool area as there were always students around and we didn't think the area was that clean. We found beer cans around one morning.

The apartment although nice, spacious etc ,wasn't what we would describe as luxurious. English tv is basic .The patio furniture is very comfortable , which was great as we stayed out there a lot. Must be lovely in summer when the nights stay light longer.

Fantastic trip

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish the whole trip was fantastic.

The booking proces, the support from Helen the property owner, the quality of the property and the local support from George were all amazing.

The apartment was spotless and had everything you needed a tune home from home. The site and pool was was also very clean and although remote was perfect fora quiet holiday. That said all the main resorts and towns are only a short distance away.

We had a fantastic holiday made all the better by staying at this property. I wound definitely recommend this property and would hope to return sometime soon.
