About the Owner

We have lived in Essex, England for a number of years and built our own chalet bungalow, on the site of our old bungalow, in 2002. We both taught Physical Education for many years, before Colin managed sports centres and contracts for the probation service; and Chris sold new homes. We are both now retired and both love sport. Chris plays golf and Colin still plays cricket and golf. Previously, we both played badminton.

In 2008 we set up a junior section at our local cricket club and now Colin coaches and Chris helps administer a group of over 50 7-16 year olds!

Dear Colin & Christine, I just wanted to thank you for our stay in your lovely Beach House it was comfortable, very peaceful and the view was beautiful. We swam most days. Please pass on our thanks to Shirley she is so friendly and helpful. It would be nice to return sometime, and we will be telling our friends about it! G D.



Hi Colin & Chris, We did indeed have a great time. The Beach House was perfect for us to get away from it all with the luxury of all mod cons. We especially liked having our own private beach right on the doorstep and made full use of the facility. We will recommend it to our friends and hopefully be back ourselves some day, M & F B



Hi Colin, We had a wonderful holiday, thoroughly enjoyed every second. The area is so beautiful and the bungalow was perfect. It was so wonderful to have accommodation with absolutely everything you could need and more! Thank you once again for providing us with a very special holiday, Fond Regards, J & R

Beautiful Bungalow right on the beach with wonderful views. Extremely well designed and kitted out.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at this house near Latchi. The house location is superb right on the beach with a very gentle promenade walk along to restaurants and bars along the beach.

We had a fantastic time exploring the hillside, relaxing at the house, snorkelling and swimming. We even had a turtle swim past while snorkelling. We thought the house was wonderful and well kitted out with everything needed for a holiday. The air conditioning is excellent if needed.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

What can I say – we stayed in the Beach House last summer and loved it. A large group of us returned to Latchi for my son & his fiancés wedding last week – we spent the first half of our holiday in a large villa just back from Latchi harbour but, on returning to this Beach Villa it felt like ‘coming home.’ The location is perfect for walking to Latchi and Polis and the views …. Well to wake up to the sound of the ocean in the morning was fantastic. The Beach house is obviously a well-loved holiday home and so much nicer than others we have rented. Well done to the owners and local ‘carer.’

Beautiful & Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This villa and the location are fantastic, it was such a treat to stay and wake up to the beautiful view every morning. Latchi harbour is just a short stroll and Polis is a pleasant 1.5km walk so you can enjoy the lovely restaurants in both without needing to drive. The owner and housekeeper were both very helpful and added to the whole experience. Thank you - we will definitely be coming back :)

Perfekte ruhige Lage direkt am Meer

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 2 Erw und 3 Kindern Ende August-Anfang September in diesem wunderbaren Haus. Traumurlaub direkt am Meer, in einer recht ruhigen, relativ abgelegenen Gegend von Zypern, 2,5 Std Autofahrt ab Larnaca. Reservierung, Kontakt und Information waren sehr gut.

Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, hat alles was man so braucht, auch viele grundlegende Lebensmittel, Waschmittel, Spülmaschinenmittel, usw sind vorhanden. Leider keine Adapter für deutsche Stecker, die gibt's für 2€ im Supermarkt. Das Haus ist sauber, gut organisiert, nett dekoriert (evtl von einer Künstler-Familie?) und es sind auch viele Spielsachen vorhanden. WiFi funktioniert gut, aber beim Film-Streamen hakt es manchmal. Die 3 Klimaanlagen waren wichtig und liefen gut.

Sehr nützlich ist die Außendusche, wenn man versandet vom Strand kommt, um den Sand nicht ins Haus zu tragen. Dieses Haus ist ein "Reihenendhaus" und hat seitlich etwas mehr Platz als manche andere Objekte die ebenfalls vermietet werden.

Der Strand war immer recht leer (und unbewacht - ohne Rettungsschwimmer). Manchmal waren wir fast alleine am Strand. Die touristischen Hauptstrände der Stadt sind eher direkt in Latchi. Er ist etwas steinig und das warme Wasser wird schnell tief. Badeschuhe sind empfehlenswert.

Es war sehr heiß bei hoher Luftfeuchtigkeit, auch nachts. Morgens und abends waren die beste Zeit für den Strand. Beim nächsten Mal kommen wir evtl besser im Mai oder Oktober.

Wir können das Haus definitiv empfehlen.

Die Bilder in der Hausbeschreibung sind teils recht veraltet, z.B. ist die Palme jetzt viel größer und gibt Schatten. Der angegebene Ort auf der Karte stimmt auch nicht ganz.

Ausflugsempfehlungen in der Nähe:

"Blaue Lagune": die perfekte Badebucht mit feinstem Sandstrand ohne Steine. Es geht sehr flach ins kristallklare blaue Wasser. Mit dem Schiff oder mit einem Jeep erreichbar.

Strand bei den "Bädern der Aphrodite": bei den Felsen dort gibt es viele Zierfische, ideal zum Schnorcheln.

Restaurants etwas im Landesinneren sind deutlich günstiger und authentisch.

Location

From the Owner

We searched for an overseas property for a number of years and finally set our hearts on Cyprus in 2006, after considering both Spain and Portugal. Reasons for our decision are the climate, the local food, the culture, the people and the outdoor life. We chose the Polis/Latchi area because it ticks all our boxes and is also fairly unspoilt, there are so many place to visit and has the added benefit of the Akamas National Park close by. The 'Beach House' is our dream location. We enjoy the summer months in the UK and aim to spend most of the winters in Cyprus.

A variety of yachts and boats are moored in Latchi harbour, where boat trips and jeep safari tours leave daily to the Akamas Peninsula. In addition to the fine rstaurants, Latchi also boasts a watersports centre.

Facilities

From the Owner

We are so lucky to have found the Beach House as it is such great place to relax and base to explore the local area. The decision to buy it was immediate. We never tire of the views from our house. It is especially stunning at sunset! The garden is our own design and some of our neighbours have used our ideas.
