The private garden was lovely, pity it was to cold to sit out and enjoy. Comfortable apartment with all you required. Could do with some kind of sound proofing. Would recommend this apartment.
The garden is a feature that I take pride with, however it was unfortunate the weather was cold. April is somewhat unpredictable and can be a good month though can also be mixed. On discussion with the guests, glad that the noise came from within the property, and as a result of some of the guests staying-up late to watch the tv and chat!
Excellent home from home
A lovely well equipped home in a quiet residential area of Paphos. We loved sitting in the private garden or by the pool. Easy walk to local shops and into Paphos Town or Kato Paphos.
Great stay at Iris Cottage
We had a very enjoyable 4 week stay in Iris Cottage. This two bedroom townhouse was clean and well-equipped. The position of the villa, not being on poolside and the private garden with a gate were perfect as we had two young children with us. We did however enjoy the pool every day which was a lovely size and well maintained.
The location of the villa was very central for our needs within good proximity to all amenities and Pambis Diner just a short walk away was great.
The owner John was very friendly and quick to respond to emails and queries.
Fabulous little home
The house was pristinely clean when we arrived. It has everything you need kitchen wise, a lovely private terrace with furniture and a comfortable lounge with satellite TV. Linen was good quality and there were beach towels and sun beds for use around the pool. The pool again immaculately clean and the terrace areas were quiet and spacious.
the only problem was too much noise from nearby building site, plus the fact that for two consecutive days there was a lot of noise from front & back of property with people using petrol hedge trimmers & chainsaws cutting hedges & trees very close to cottage. This should be done when property is empty so I was not happy about this.
The property is located in a complex of 40 townhouses that form a quadrangle around a large communal pool and gardens. It was chosen by me in 2007 for its very quiet residential location, its attractive and secluded rear garden, the well planted and maintained communal gardens, and reasonable walking distance to the harbour and amenities. I suggest the noise was short lived and to some extent beyond my control, whilst I have never had any adverse comments about noise in 10 years of holiday lets. However, it is accepted that routine garden maintenance works will cause temporary levels of disturbance both in my garden, from adjoining gardens and the complex. My magnificent Hibiscus hedge is cut once a month together with tidying the feature rear garden. On the day my gardener arrived, he asked the guest if he could cut the hedge, which the guest willing agreed to, only to be asked to stop when the work was nearly complete, and which the gardener duly obliged. This work is often done during holiday lets because of the number of lets received and the lack of lead-in time available to organise such visits to coincide with the change over, which guests accept. I should point out that this holiday let was agreed at short notice (19 days). Other work beyond the property, including tree maintenance, could reasonably be expected in April, given the tourist season has just commenced and plants are growing. I understand from a conversation the gardener had with the guest, that the neighbour's hedge had been cut the day before. Whilst the building works refereed to, are over 100 meters from the complex, comprising the construction of an apartment block on an infill site, and do not directly overlooking the complex. Finally, I should point out from the guest's observations that the actual property experience was fine. This speaks for itself and justifies the 5 star rating that other guests regularly give for the property and holiday letting experience, as I would always aim to deliver upon and justifiably feel proud of.
A 20 minute walk from Iris Cottage will take you to the local beaches in Kato Paphos. However if you want a trip to Coral Bay there is a very good bus service which will drop you right there!

You can hire a car to explore a little, however the position of the house is such that many local amenities are within walking distance.

'The Garden of Eden' or Russian Market, with local fresh produce is 5 minutes by car.
There is an information booklet for all our guests in the house.
