The property was adequate for our needs but not what we expected given it’s description.
The description of the property was misleading. We expected beautiful views but in reality we looked out onto other apartments. Admittedly we could see the Goast Town of Farmagusta through the gap in the apartment blocks. Unfortunately we found the sofa bed impossible to sleep on, as the mattress was so thin we felt the springs poking through. Brian managed to source a double mattress from another apartment but my Son had to help him carry it and again help him carry it back at the end of our holiday. The mattress in the double bedroom was soiled as were some of the pillows. The sheets kept pinging off the mattress as they were a poor fit. The entrance road to the apartment complex is an unmade up track with overflowing rubbish bins. Not a good greeting on arrival after midnight. No WiFi which was inconvenient in this day and age. Also we were woken during the week with building work going on in the opposite block. Not very restful. Fortunately we were out and about every day. It would have been nice to have been forewarned. These are the negatives which could easily be resolved but we do feel the description of the apartment is not accurate as it stands. Having said all this, we had a great holiday and the apartment is a great base to go out and about from. Brian was very helpful and available when needed. Plenty of information in the little library under the TV - Overall good value for money.
Thank you for your review, we are always looking for fair feedback and suggestions. Thank you for highlighting about the sofa bed. The sofa bed was new at the start of the season, with your family being the last guests of the year it seems the sofa bed has taken a beating. Thank you for highlighting, this will be replaced for the new season along with all linen.. I don't believe the description is misleading at all and find this comment confusing, we have a beautiful view of the Ghost Town of Famagusta as stated and you can see the sea from every room. Thea Court has been fully finished from building work for many years, however unfortunately I cannot control any owners doing some private renovation, however I am sorry you did not experience the usual peaceful location. We do not advertise Wi-fi, so I am unsure why this was mentioned in your review, however something we are planning to include for this season. I am glad you still had a good holiday and in particular that I was able to help out when the number of guests changed at no extra charge.
Perfect family accommodation
We had a fabulous holiday in Cyprus and our accommodation was perfect for our needs. Very clean and well presented with almost everything needed for a family holiday. Lovely sea views from all rooms, and a perfect balcony for relaxing after a busy day at the beach.
Easy to find from the airport, and a great base for exploring the locality.
Supermarkets, beaches, restaurants and bars all within very easy access.
The water cooler is a genius idea. The ceiling fans vital and the air con a quick and very welcome relief!
The pools were lovely and we happily spent a lazy day lounging around them. Need to keep a close eye on your non swimmers though, as no real shallow end.
Only two very slight, very minor irritations. Firstly, I find it interesting that a property being touted as ‘luxury’ doesn’t have items such as a dishwasher. I knew it didn’t have one from the description and it wasn’t an issue for us. As I’ve said the property was absolutely perfect. I guess it’s just a matter of semantics. A description like ‘perfect family accommodation’ would be more accurate than luxury penthouse.
Secondly - the bedding for the double bed didn’t fit well and every morning, you’d wake up stuck to the mattress. Which in 30 degree plus heat is not great. We remade the bed every single day, and regularly though the night! The sheets would rumple up and ping off the side of the bed the minute you sat on it. Lol. Like I say, not a biggie at all, just a mild irritation. Better bedding would be good though!
The contact we had from Kirsty through the booking process was great and the information provided really handy. I loved the little library of books and was happy to add to it at the end of our stay.
Brian was great to have nearby, he gave us lots of useful info at the start of our stay and a great money off voucher for nearby Waterworld. But he was unobtrusive and kept a very low profile unless needed. Which, to be fair, he wasn’t!
Overall - a wonderful holiday, made perfect with great accommodation. We would definitely go back!!
P.S. don’t use Dollar/Thrifty car hire from the airport - substandard cars, awful child seats and absolute rip off merchants. The only downer on our holiday!
Well equipped apartment but not the best location for us
On arrival we were met by a lovely lady. First impressions were promising, however, when we started to unpack we noticed how dirty the apartment was and proceeded to clean it. The drawers had to be cleaned out, the bedding was dirty , the floors filthy and the bath with black marks around it. This was certainly not how we anticipated commencing our long awaited holiday. I emailed Kirsty, who responded promptly and was incredibly apologetic and compensated us.
Brian the apartment service guy checked in with us as he had been on holiday. We told him that the apartment was ideal for a family of four as we had two rooms with a pretty well equipped kitchen... the washing machine being a Godsend!
The aircon in each room was a welcome relief too along with the additional ceiling fans.
The beaches are a lot further than we had anticipated and around a twenty minute walk which isn’t ideal with a pushchair as using the shortcut has a set of really steep steps. The walk down to Kennedy Avenue is like walking through a rubbish dump with litter all over, broken glass as well as pieces of furniture etc littering the pavements. The beach coves are stunning if you can get on them as the Cypriots are on holiday during the last two weeks of August and the beaches are rammed where there was actually no space to lie down a towel.
We found turning left at Kennedy Avenue to another cove have a little more space but was quite dirty for children to play on (as with many of the beaches we visited) where they were littered with cigarette ends and plastic cups along with metal bottle tops. Trinity beach is worth a visit. Nissi beach was busy but we managed to get a lounger and shade.
Faliros and Just Italian are the best restaurants in Kapparis without a doubt serving consistently good food.
Famagusta took over an hour to get to but was well worth the visit!
Metro supermarket was around a ten minute walk but again you will have to navigate the litter through the houses to get there.
The pool was perfect for the children and they loved it. Quite often they were the only people there! There are adequate loungers and shades too. During our stay it was very clean until the final two days where litter was left on the side and plastic at the bottom of the pool.
Don’t expect to relax and have a lie in as every morning, around 5am onwards we were woken by dogs barking until around 9am.
The locals call Kapparis ‘Little Britain’ as it is predominantly an expat community
Many thanks for leaving a review we are always keen to hear feedback so we can continue to improve. As discussed our normal property manager was on holiday, although the apartment was cleaned thoroughly by our very good friend, who also manages other apartments in the complex. However I appreciate you felt this was not to your standard so we were happy to compensate you for your inconvenience. However, that said, no matter how much you dust a headboard, the dust can settle on this type of surface - especially if a door or window has been left open. In terms of the other issues you have raised, we are very surprised to hear this and you are the first guest to mention anything of this nature, as you can see from our extensive 5 star reviews. We are very lucky to have many repeat visitors to our apartment, in fact a handful of these guests have come 2+ times to stay with us, so you can imagine my surprise at some of your points and definitely not an experience they would agree with. I appreciate time and distance can be subjective but it is more accurate to say the beach is a 12 minute walk and having 2 young children ourselves in buggies, we have done this walk many times over. I am glad you enjoyed elements of the holiday and that we could give you a free late check out to help with your onward travel. We wish you all the best for your future holidays
Nice location bit quiet compared to what used to but enjoyed. Apartment clean & well maintained. Access to 2 pools. Highly recommend if wanting quiet holiday. 6 adults stayed & adequate space for all.
Well presented and clean apartment in ideal location
The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for a great stay. It was ideally located for the bars and restaurants on Kennedy Avenue and the nearby beaches. Brian, the apartment manager was very helpful and always on hand to sort out any issues. I would highly recommend staying here to enjoy your Cyprus holiday.
Many thanks for your kind review. i am so glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope you will return for future holidays.
