Beautiful Contemporary House with Private Gardens And Views Across Olive Groves



Updated: 26-Nov-2016
Contemporary House in Polis, Paphos, Cyprus - Beautiful Contemporary House, Own Private Gardens, Balcony And Two Patios

The area is one of the most beautiful in Cyprus. Situated on the edge of the rustic village of Polis, this lovely townhouse is in a truly picturesque and peaceful spot yet only 5 minutes walk into the village centre, 5 minutes drive to the beach and the Akamas countryside is on the doorstep. Indoors the house is exquisitely furnished in contemporary style - with amazing views towards the sea and mountains - and is set amidst a beautiful Mediterranean garden set in bright white gravel with lemon trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, and much more. Outdoors there's everything you need to enjoy relaxation Cypriot style including a gas BBQ, two patios and a large balcony. Fly screens on all windows means that windows can be left open to allow cooling fresh air to circulate throughout the house. Air con is provided in all three bedrooms at no extra cost. The complex has a communal, heated swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is quite simply the best accomodation I have ever stayed in. A beautiful house in a stunning location. The house was supremely clean and was equipped to the highest standard.

The house overlooks olive groves and is adjacent to the gardens so there is a gorgeous view whichever way you look.

The house itself has a lovely sun terrace and balcony, is extremely spacious, clean, modern, bright and is beautifully maintained.

Polis itself is an easy walk away and is a super little spot, not at all commercialised, very traditional but with some excellent restaurants and tavernas. If you're looking for night clubs, don't come here. there aren't any!

We will be back.

Well-equipped house - great location

  • 5 of 5

Airy, spacious accommodation, with a lot of thought clearly given to making it feel like home. Kitchen is the best equipped we have found and obviously set up by someone who actually uses one and lovely garden and patio space to side and rear of house. Quiet location, but easy walk into Polis or, if you are lazy, like us, Nissos taxis provides a quick and very reliable run around service, best bit being you never have to wait for more than 5 minutes for taxi to and from anywhere, as far as we could tell. Lovely restaurants and bars in town and large supermarket for all shopping needs, with incredibly helpful help desk ladies. My favourite Cyprus rental so far, by a country mile - we will book again

A lovely home in Polis

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property in March of this year., it was just as it was described if not better. Arrangements with the owner were easy and everything was clear - so much so we have booked another of his properties for our next holiday.

The house was lovely, very clean and modern with an open plan ground floor, a small garden and every Kitchen item you will ever need! It's in a great location and although we hired a car we walked most places - into town (10mins) and out to Latchi and back several times (about 40mins each way along the coast). The neighbours were friendly and Polis is a lovely little town - it was just waking up from the winter when we were there as it was before Easter but we found plenty of places open. It will be a different place when we return in August I'm sure!

We also drove to some of the Villages around and up to Lysos - Lovely. I would certainly book this property again. We opted not to take the air con as it was early in the season but on hindsight we could have done with it for the heating option! Something to think about if you are booking for the winter.

All in all a fabulous stay and I look forward to the next time.

The dealings with the owner were easy and everything was updated as he said. The house is beautiful a 10 minute walk outside of Polis. Directions from airport exact and easy to follow. The house was clean and well equipped and for the price excellent value. The only bit I had to sort was the cable TV which you do through the next door neighbour which after consideration didn't need. Would stop there again and recommend to friends

Owner's Response: Very many hanks for your review Eric and we are delighted you found the property to your satisfaction. The issue with the tv and WiFi has now been resolved as we have now had our own WiFi installed which is free to all guests. Additionally we have also had an internet tv box installed which gives guests access to many British tv channels including BBC and ITV via the WiFi connection.

From the Owner

We love this property because it is so spacious, light and airy. As it is an end town house we have the added benefit of windows all down one side which give the house so much more light. We are adjacent to the 'green area' a beautiful space which is maintained by a couple of our residents.
