Townhouse in Kapparis, Cyprus - Peaceful Location, Communal Pools, 800 metres from Beach - The Kids won't be Bored Here!
About Helen Craig
We are two hard-working parents living in Belfast, Northern Ireland with two children - Adam, 20 and Aimee, 18. We have always loved our holidays in the sun and fell in love with Cyprus on our first visit some 20 years ago. We've been taking the children to Cyprus since they were toddlers and they now love it as much as we do! We love the climate, beaches, food and people. The whole island is worth exploring.
Helen Craig purchased this House in 2008
Why Helen Craig chose Paralimni
We love this area as it has some rugged coastline and lovely beaches too, all within walking distance. It is a quiet area, where traditional Cyprus meets modern. The area has plenty of restaurants to choose from, supermarkets, pubs and nightlife if you want that too.
What makes this House unique
We chose a house rather than an apartment as we wanted plenty of space, especially outdoor space on ground level to sit outside and enjoy the lovely sunshine and barbeque anytime we wanted. We furnished the house with comfort in mind. It is a real 'home from home' with all the mod cons needed for a family. We also chose a house on a complex with a communal pool so the children would have company. There are also plenty of facilities for them so they won't get bored, especially now that they are teenagers! The added bonus is the on-site gym for us and the wonderful spa and treatments available at very competitive prices.

Fabulous Well Appointed Property
Superb accommodation in a gorgeous location a real home away from home. There was everything that you would ever need available right down to hairdryers & styling irons (although I had brought my own, had I realised this I could have saved transporting mine) ! Nice well equipped terrace area outside the patio doors which was perfect for sitting in with a chilled glass of wine after a hot day at the beach. Massive super comfy bed in the master bedroom and very welcome air con in every room.
Helen was really friendly and talked us through finding the property on the phone, when we arrived in the dark and someone had parked over the driveway.
The house is centrally located in Kapparis in a residential area and there is access to a pool which unfortunately I never visited due to our preference being for a beach. Local beach within walking distance as are shops, restaurants and supermarkets.
All in all a brilliant property which made our most recent holiday to this magical island just perfect - would love to make a return visit in the future and can’t thank Helen & Brian enough for letting us share their Cyprus home.
Thanks Lesley for your lovely comments! Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back!! 😎�👍�
Home From Home
We stayed here for a week and we had a wonderful time. The house was a real home from home experience, it was spotless and equipped with everything you could possibly need.
The owner Helen was extremely helpful right from the start. She answered every question that we put to her and she even suggested places to go and restaurants to eat in. This was a great help as this was our first visit in Cyprus.
We would have no hesitation recommending this property and we look forward to returning soon.
Hi Mark, thanks for your kind words, good to know the information we passed on was useful and that you and your family enjoyed your holiday. We'd be delighted to welcome you back! Helen & Brian
Fantastic Villa in fantastic location
We had the excellent fortune to come across this Villa in Cyprus. After a very long day and suffering many delays we eventually arrived at our destination bone weary, we thought we had arrived back home. The villa was everything we could have hoped for and more. The photos do not do this place justice. The beds are like high end hotel quality, the place is immaculately kept and has everything you would have at home for cooking and washing clothes. we saved hundreds of pounds by being able to eat in as my family has various food allergies and get fed up of eating food without sauces and a variety of chips and meat in various restaurants. This is the first holiday where we looked forward to eating out instead of having to and thus enjoyed the experience so much more. Our towels and smalls were kept fresh and clean and was a bonus in itself. It is ideally situated in Kapparis which is less than 10mins to the main part of Protaras. The local shops are literally a 3min walk and the beach 5mins stroll. There is a swimming pool just across the way and again is kept immaculate. Although it was 40degrees the children still visited the tennis court on site. We have been to Cyprus many times but this rates as the most relaxing and enjoyable simply because we had the comforts of home with the advantage of fantastic weather, beach and pool. Definitely recommend this villa.
I cannot thank Helen enough for allowing us to rent the villa for our two week holiday and will definitely be going again.
Great to hear all was good with your stay for you and your lovely family Jamie-Lee. We look forward to welcoming you all back, hopefully without the horrible delays next time!! Thanks for the fab review, much appreciated!! Helen and Brian
Fantastic holiday, very highly recommended.
We had the pleasure of staying in Helen and Brian’s house for 2 weeks in July and were delighted with how bright and fresh it was on our arrival. It is a beautiful house that was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. It is in a great location just a short walk to local bars and restaurants, with Protaras only a 5 minute drive away. We enjoyed the pool area and bar which caters for all your drinks and food/snacks and sun beds were available at any time of the day. There is a very good gym and tennis court which was great fun and we also treated ourselves to massages in the spa. I would definitely recommend staying here and cannot wait to go back.
Thanks for taking the time to write your lovely review Lesley! Great to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay and the facilities available. We do hope you will return! Thanks again, Helen and Brian
We stayed at Helen and Criag's house for 20 nights September and had a fantastic holiday, It is very well located just a short walk to the local bars and beaches in kapparis and close to Protaras, the house is very clean with everything you need and more The pool area is nice where you can get drinks and snacks and Helen arranged a free gym pass for our holiday period which was great, Aiya Napa is 10-15 minute drive away so lots do if you want to nice owners to deal with would definitely go back again
A revitalising holiday
What a wonderful holiday!! It's been years since I had this carefree, relaxing feeling on holiday! The house was wonderful, in immaculate condition, spotlessly clean, and fully equipped with everything you might need when on holiday! Playstation, DVD player even CDs with music from our time (80s-90s) my personal favourite Phil Collins!! The only thing my teenagers complained about was that there was no WiFi but then with so many other things to do they soon forgot about FACEBOOK!!! Yay!!!! There were crisp clean sheets and towels upon our arrival and a washing machine!!! No dirty 1 week laundry to take home with you!! I also enjoyed the free pass to gym for the week, which was followed by a refreshing swim in the lovely pool!! The pool area was gorgeous too..with an extra bonus Mrs Mary who owns the pool snack bar and is an great cook and a lovely lady....we didn't want to move an inch! There are however great beaches nearby (5-10 min walk) really picturesque with a little harbour and lovely crystal clear turquoise waters. there are supermarkets nearby for your daily needs and a plethora of restaurants all around the area with all the cuisines you can imagine. Protaras is a 10-15 min drive (depending on traffic) and there you can enjoy the lively nightlife or just a walk down the busy streets. We highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to enjoy a holiday in Cyprus. Thanks again for an unforgettable holiday...we are really looking forward to renting again next year!!
