About Sarah Gormley

Hi there

I'm passionate about travel and enjoy holidays to gorgeous locations. I'm a history geek and love exploring new places which is one of the many reasons I adore Cyprus.

If you've never been to Paphos before then you're in for a treat as there's something for everyone!

Enjoy! x

Sarah Gormley purchased this house in 2006

Why Sarah Gormley chose Melanos

I decided to invest in Cyprus because of the warmth of the place and I'm not talking just about the weather! The people are so friendly and laid back it's wonderful plus my best friend lives locally so I get to catch up with her and her family when I visit too. I feel every muscle in my body relax even thinking about the place :-)

What makes this house unique

I chose this property based on the view alone as the views are breathtaking especially sunsets from the balcony off the master bedroom! Oh and the second reason is for the pool that also has equally stunning views

Guestbook comments from the owner

Review taken from Airbnb site

We enjoys our time in Sarah's home. It was situated a short drive from the grocery store, the old port and many of the famous paphos sites. We enjoyed the pool as well. Chris the concierge made some excellent restaurant suggestions and were able to have a real Cypriot experience.

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a quiet complex situated on the top of a hill a couple of miles out of Paphos. The views are lovely and we enjoyed many an evening (and morning!) relaxing with a coffee or wine sat outside on the veranda. You will need a car as the hill is steep and probably a bit of a hike after a night out or with shopping but there is a supermarket and petrol station a short drive away on the road into town that is also full of places to eat (Gustoso and Fat Mamas) or go an extra 5 minutes drive into Paphos itself. The house itself was clean and tidy with aircon and all the facilities required. We were really well looked after by Chris when we stayed who was on hand for advice on where to go and things to do. There is a shared pool a stone's throw away that was very relaxing and quiet despite being peak season. It is well worth a visit to the north of the island around Aphrodite baths as the sheltered coves on the north are absolutely stunning and good for snorkelling,many have local cafes to escape the heat for an hour. We loved our stay and are very much looking forward to going back this August.

Amazing location with scenic views

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place to stay with great views and lovely balcony to enjoy the sunset on! I recommend some wine or beer at sunset to make the most of it :-)

The bathroom looks to be brand new which was a pleasant surprise. The Wi-Fi worked fine, used it to stream music and films on when we needed to. Air con cooled us down quick although didn't need to use it that much as the place stays fairly cool even when roasting outside.

Plenty of space to relax in, also loved having a continental style breakfast and Mediterranean lunch on the balcony.

The pool was well maintained and enjoyed a daily dip.

We'll definitely be going back, it's a great place to stay and a great price too.

This vacation home is the filthiest, out worned and less cared townhouse we ever lived in!! Our stay was from 09/01/2015 till 18/02/2015, the house was ice cold inside, between 9 and 11 degrees. There was no central heating as discribed, only the A/C unit in the living room worked after 3 days, CHRIS the care taker helped and called in for repair.

The kitchen cabinets a mess, the stove ugly from old greese. We had to clean the floor twice, the bathroom downstairs clogged with long hairs. The upstairs bathroom with mold and broken bath tub fixture. Spider webs on the ceilings. My husband and me we cleaned for 2 days,

the owner Sarah wasn't helpful at all. There was no working SAT.TV as described, just a 20 year old little TV without any service. Wi-Fi internet worked and we had the chance to watch TV on our laptop. Overall a very bad experience !! There was no reimbursement offered, very disappointing.

Owner's Response: Dear Gilda I'm sorry you had such a terrible time and that this winter Cyprus was so unseasonally cold. In fact the coldest it has been for over 20 years which is the reason why the heaters in the house are stand alone gas and electric ones as most houses in Paphos, Cyprus don't need central heating (in fact previous winter guests have never had to use additional heating since I have owned the property). My property manager did try to help you by purchasing extra heaters, blankets etc which will remain in the house for future guests too. Sateillite television is only available via the internet on a tablet or laptop and this is explained in the house details on here so I'm sorry for any misunderstanding you had. The guests that stayed prior to your visit and the one afterwards both gave excellent feedback about the property so I'm sorry it didn't meet with your expectations or taste. I hope the poor weather doesn't put you off from visiting Cyprus again as in previous years when I've visited in January we've enjoyed 16 degree weather and sunshine. Best wishes Sarah

Tombs of the Kings

The “Tombs of the Kings” are situated close to the sea in the north western necropolis of Pafos (Paphos). They owe their name to their size and splendour – some probably belonged to the Pafian aristocracy, and not because royalty was buried there. They are rock cut and date to the Hellenistic and early Roman periods. Some of them imitate the houses of the living, with the rooms (here the burial chambers) opening onto a peristyle atrium. They are similar to tombs found in Alexandria, demonstrating the close relations between the two cities during the Hellenistic period.


The Akamas peninsula, named after an Athenian warrior and son of Theseus, who arrived here after the Trojan war, is a unique area, both geologically and physiographically and with regard to flora and fauna.

Almost all the geological formations of Cyprus can be found here, from narrow deep valleys, caves and islets to gorges such as that of Avakas, resulting in a real geological mosaic. For this reason the Akamas peninsula is endowed with a unique biodiversity, habitats and ecosystems.

The uniqueness of the flora stems mainly from the unparalleled endemic wealth. In the Akamas there are about 530 indigenous plants, of which 35 are endemic, out of a total of about 142 endemic species, sub-species and varieties occurring throughout Cyprus. Some of these plants are endemic to the area.

As regards fauna, the endemic Glaucopsyche paphos butterfly can be considered the emblem of the area. Until recently the Mediterranean seal, Monachus monachus, bred in the inaccessible caves of the peninsula, while on the remote beaches of Lara, the sea turtles, Caretta caretta and Chelonia mydas, continue to breed in large numbers.

The area has one of the favourite haunts of the mythological goddess Aphrodite. Legend has it that after swimming in the crystal clear waters of the bay, she would walk up the hill and bathe in a pool fed by a freshwater mountain spring dripping down the sides of a shady grotto overhung by a leafy fig tree, which has come to be known as the Baths of Aphrodite. It is here that Adonis saw and fell in love with her while hunting in the Akamas forest. The Italian poet Ariosto wrote a poem about the area and its waters which became known as the Fontana Amorosa.

The myth of Aphrodite lived on through the Middle Ages turning into the love story between the mythical Byzantine hero Dhigenis Akritas and the Queen of Cyprus known as Rigaina. The ruins of an old monastery in a clearing in the heart of the Akamas with a giant oak tree and a bubbling spring, is known as the 'Pyrgos tis Rigainas', or the Queen's castle, and is linked to this love story.

Get to know the area on foot along one of the nature trails that cross the peninsula, such as those of Aphrodite or Adonis, affording marvellous views of the bay and the west coast and an opportunity to admire nature from close up. European path E4 cuts through the region as it goes across the island. Stop off for a rest in the shady Smygies picnic site, a place associated with love and where Digenis met Rigaina. The area is ideal for cycling due to its numerous forest roads.

Agios Georgios Pegeia Archaeological Site

Agios Georgios at Pegeia is a famous place of pilgrimage in the Pafos (Paphos) region in the west of Cyprus. Three early Christian Basilicas and a bath, all 6th century, were excavated in the early 1950s. Later excavations revealed an extensive unwalled settlement that occupied the neck and the south slope of the cape in the Roman and early Christian periods.

The advantageous position of the settlement suggests that it was probably a port of call for ships transporting grain from Egypt to Constantinople. The settlement flourished under Justinian I (527 - 565 A.D.). The necropolis lies at the brow of the cliff with tombs carved into the rock.

The place of pilgrimage of Agios Georgios is located between the site of the basilicas and the necropolis. There is also a small chapel founded in the late 13th early 14th century also named after Agios Georgios. The stone - built church of Agios Georgios was built more recently.

Maa - Palaeokastro Settlement

Maa-Palaeokastro, a settlement on the western coast of the island close to Coral Bay, is important for the understanding of the end of the Late Bronze Age in Cyprus.
