Fantastic Villa - Great Holiday - Cannot Fault It!
We recently returned from a 2 week stay at the cobblers in lovely Maroni. What a fantastic property, we loved it! Our group was 4 adults and a 13 month old baby. The property has so much character and you really do feel like you are staying in a piece of history however it has all of the mod cons you would expect including air conditioning in all the main areas of the house.
The pool is fantastic and the garden and roof terrace is stunning. We spent many an evening BBQing and chilling with great wine watching the sun set.
Alan the owner is great, nothing was a problem, he was very informative and provided us with everything we needed to make our stay perfect.
We will certainly be booking again!
A home from home...and then some!
I’d like to start with a remarkable coincidence.
A few years ago we were staying in a property in Maroni. I was fascinated by the house next door. It had a raised sun terrace and an arched double door with a peep hole in it. As it appeared to be unoccupied at the time every time I walked by I looked through the peep hole to see if I could make out what was beyond the door. It wasn’t until we had actually finalised the booking that I realised that The Cobblers was that exact place! I couldn’t have possibly imagined what was beyond those doors. It’s truly amazing! We were rather spoiled, having the whole place for just two of us but there is more than enough room and everything you need for full occupancy!
Alan was very helpful on the couple of occasions I contacted him with minor queries and responded quickly. We stayed for 10 days but would have loved to stay much longer - could even imagine living there!
It was great chatting to Marguerite’s sister who arrived just as we were leaving. She had a large paper bag of still warm savoury pastries with her. Probably not one of my more sensible ideas - driving down those narrow streets while eating a pastry. It was delightful though.
We love Cyprus and especially being away from the cities - they are all still a must for a visit though. Staying at The Cobblers made this holiday even more enjoyable.

Dear Dave and Chris
It is such a delight for us to share the house with people who really appreciate its character and comfort as well as our beautiful ,simple but unspoilt village of Maroni. It was an absolute pleasure having you as guests, Maro and Anna enjoyed talking to you and send their thanks for leaving the house in such a pristine condition.
We would love to see you back at Cobblers again.
Alan & Marguerite
Lovely property with plenty of character.
A little hard to find but this place is tranquil... we had a really peaceful, relaxing week.
The master bedroom mattress was not very supportive of bad backs, and you'd probably struggle to get around the place with bad knees (lots of steps!) but we cannot otherwise fault the property. We spent many afternoons relaxing under the shade of the olive tree & swimming in the pool, mornings having breakfast on the roof terrace & evenings playing cards in the sitting room.
The kitchen is fully equipped and basic food & alcohol supplies await you in the kitchen. AC in all the important rooms and no shortage of places to sit & relax. Alan (owner) was also very helpful & quick to respond via email.
We'd definitely recommend this place to others if you're looking for an escape from the hustle & bustle.
Food at The Old Coffee Shop (Maroni) and Retro Tavern (Kalavasos) was very good. Koumbaris (Zygi) was disappointing.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at the Cobblers and Cyprus. You were fantastic guests and we would welcome you back any time. We try to make the directions as clear as possible but we are going to put a few signs up to make this easier.
Absolutely beautiful villa! From the minute we saw this place we knew it was perfect for us!
The aim of our holiday was total peace, quiet and relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of a tourist resort and we were not disappointed!
The route through Maroni was lovely, via narrow paved streets – a truly traditional Cypriot village with not too much more than a few streets, a coffee/cocktail bar that opened a few times a week, and a little village shop for essentials
The villa itself is superb, from the double sturdy wooden traditional doors that you make you feel like you’re walking into a castle, to the quirky property layout and wonderful roof terrace looking over the village, hills and to sea. We didn’t find ourselves wanting for anything and truly felt like we were staying in someone’s home with all the comfort that we’re used to, without it feeling like temporary holiday accommodation
The property is split over 4 levels with entrance hall and kitchen on street level then steps down to the snug, with further steps down to the bedrooms and pool. On the upper level is the snug/living room and at the top is the fabulous roof terrace where we spent much of our time having breakfast while watching the sun come up, and having our evening meals watching the sunset.
The pool area was lovely and very private, with welcome shade from the olive tree during the midday sunshine. This area gets the sun from very early morning until around 5pm and from then we went up to the roof terrace where the sun finally disappeared behind the village around 7pm.
Re housekeeping, we didn’t have any issues at all and the villa was well stocked with cleaning products, teatowels, dishwasher tablets etc to look after ourselves, however if we had a suggestion it would be that if we were a family we might have struggled with shower and pool towels for 2 weeks as there was no housekeeping during our stay. As it was, we are a couple so we used the spare set from another room but if this hadn’t have been possible we’d have probably had to look at washing them through which isn’t something you necessarily want to do on holiday (although it was so hot they would have dried quickly so no major inconvenience)
The kitchen is extremely well stocked and cooking ‘at home’ is very easy and we did this most nights
Alan was very quick to answer any questions we had both before and during the visit, and the welcome basket of wine, tea, coffee, butter, bread, water, crisps and fruit was much appreciated and a very nice touch. Thank you so much, we cant wait to return!
Thank you for your lovely review Louise and Chris, it was an absolute pleasure having you as guests and we hope to welcome you back again soon. We have taken note of your comments and will always try to improve our guests experience and act on any advice given.
Ferien wie sie sein sollten!
Beschreibung und Realität passen überein. Hier kann man seine Ferien in vollen Zügen geniessen!
Tolles Haus mit Athmosphäre
Super sauber, super gemütlich. Alles da was man braucht....und mehr.
Man fühlt sich schnell wie zu Hause.
Alle Kontaktpersonen sehr nett und hilfreich. Ruhige Lage am Ende des alten Dorfkerns.
TIPP: Bloß nicht durchs Dorf anfahren, weil extrem eng. Kann das Haus nur empfehlen. Alles wie beschrieben.
Danke auch an Alan, dass wir dort 15 Tage wohnen dürften.
Thank you Henning and Martina. It was a joy for us to host you, glad you enjoyed staying at the Cobblers and in our lovely peaceful village. Hope you come back and stay again sometime.
Maroni is almost equidistant to Larnaca , Limassol and Nicosia, which are all well within 1 hours drive. The Village of Maroni is very traditional and picturesque but it has a supermarket and a lovely coffee shop/bar with an English owner a few steps from the house where you can enjoy a cocktail and light snacks.
The house is a five minute drive to the local beach which is about a mile away.
