About Kevin & Julie Claxton

Hello from Julie and Kevin Claxton. We live in Brighton in the UK, but we hope to spend more time in Cyprus looking ahead. We love Cyprus, its climate, people and culture, and have visited the island many times. We have furnished these apartments with the idea of including what we and what you would need to enjoy a complete and relaxing holiday. We hope that you will choose our apartments, and our aim is to give you a holiday to remember, so that you will consider re-booking, or recommending us to your friends. We look forwards to hearing from you. Thanks very much for your time.

Kevin & Julie Claxton purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Kevin & Julie Claxton chose Peyia

We feel that Peyia (and Cyprus) have all to offer that anyone could want in a quality holiday. Peyia is close to Paphos, Coral Bay (and its forthcoming Marina), and other parts of the Island which are scenic and beautiful.

The village itself has everything needed, but is quiet and tranquil. The apartments and village have lovely views to mountains and sea.

We have fitted the partments in what we thin is a stylish but practical way, and have tried to fit them out with everything you need (except GHD's for the ladies!) We have also tried to include as much detail in the listing as possible but please contact us if you have any questions.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartments at the Vanessa complex are on what we believe is possibly the only development in the area offering this combination of quality, safety and tranquility combined with the largest pool in Peyia and the other 5 star facilities as listed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

  • 5 of 5

Did a glowing lengthy review when I left this property on 6th April but it seems to have disappeared into the ether! Hope I can remember most of it!

I have spent 3 months in the studio apartment and the only things I missed (but not too much) were a washing machine and a microwave. Literally everything else I can think of - and some I hadn’t - was provided. I never used a lot of the items, including the dishwasher but for other guests not lucky enough to have friends nearby as I had I would say - don’t bring anything with you - from egg cups to juice squeezer - it’s all there.

The winter nights can be bitterly cold but I used the hot air from the air con as necessary and later invested in a hot water bottle 😀

The owners and the team in Peyia couldn’t have been more helpful. Kevin, although abroad arranged for a very small problem to be dealt with immediately (WiFi issue)

The grounds and pool facilities are brilliant. Thank you for having me! I was sorry to leave ☹️

we stayed here for over a month as we were househunting. It`s in a great location for getting to Coral Bay, Paphos and the beach. It`s quite a steep climb to the supermarket but they have most things you need, otherwise it`s just a five minute drive down to a much larger one. The apartment had everything in it we needed and the streaming via minix box was a real bonus. I would definitely recommend the apartment to a couple. Thanks for a great holiday!

Very well equipped and a great location in Pegeia.(Peyia)

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the studio apartment, at the back of the Vanessa complex.

The apartment had everything for a pleasant holiday. On our arrival we were greeted by a bottle of bubbly as when we booked with Kevin we had mentioned we would be celebrating our Anniversary, which we thought was a very nice touch.

There are plenty of bars,tavernas and a couple of good supermarkets in Pegeia. We found the apartment a ideal base for exploring the Paphos area.

Nice apartments clean .

  • 3 of 5

Good studio apartment . Wifi very slow and not password protected as others were logging into it. Washing machine would be more useful than a dishwasher.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the honest feedback, and we are glad you generally found the apartment to your liking. Further to the specific comments, we do accept that the wifi is not secure (as in most hotels where the establishment can 'see' online activity, however we will look to get it password-protected. It is fast enough (3-4 mb per sec) to stream tv. We also do accept that a washing machine would be more useful than a dishwasher, and we have already agreed to look at that when an opportunity is presented. We would add however that the description for the studio makes it clear that there is a dishwasher and not a washing machine. We always take feedback seriously and hope to improve things where necessary, and take comfort from the comments re the 'good studio'. We hope to assist you again at some point, and we greatly value returning guests, Thanks again and we are glad you enjoyed your break. Kevin and Julie.

Special interest holidays:

Nearby is the Akamas Peninsula with its nature & turtle reserve, explorable by 4x4 / quadbike / cycle. Within 10 mins of Peyia is a zoo & riding stables, 25 mins to the quiet coastal towns of Polis, Laatchi & the famous Baths of Aphrodite.

As well as shops, market restaurants and nightlife, Paphos contains a waterpark and a world of culture, with museums & artifacts / historical sites which provide a fascinating insight into many of the worlds empires.

To the east of Paphos is the equally famous and picturesque Aphrodites Rock. Travelling inland can take you to lace-making villages stopped in time, where monasteries, vineyards. 90 minutes travel will take you the bustling port and resort of Limassol or the Troodos mountains, (where you can escape the heat and enjoy a serene 20 deg C in the Summer or ski on feet of powder snow in the Winter).

Slightly further afield are the capital Nicosia and a visit to the Turkish part of the island, or the resorts of Larnaca and Ayia Napa.


There is another excellent open access pool with bar in the village some 10 minutes walk from the complex.

Coral bay is one of the best beaches on the island & has small coves adjacent to a main sandy beach, with full watersports onsite. This is about 3 miles away and is but a few minutes by car.

Adjacent to this is the 'Sea Caves' area, (a rocky peninsula ideal for snorkelling or scuba diving). Near here is also the ideal and picturesque jetty and church at Ayios Georges.

A car is not necessary, but is recommended. Bus service to Paphos, Airport & Coral Bay. Taxis are plentiful. Airport shuttles via mini-bus are available via Google. Quads & m/cycle Hire nearby. The centre of the town of Paphos is approximately 20 minutes or 10 miles away. This has all the amenities of a large provincial town & port. Polis/Laatchi approx 15 miles.

Further Details:

Cypus is a large island in the eastern mediterranean sea. Temperatures are on average much higher than most European countries, being closest to eastern Greece, Turkey and Israel. There is so much to do in Cyprus, both for active and leisure holidays! Driving is the same side of the road as in UK, and English 3-pin plugs are standard.

Winter temperatures are usually around 15 deg C at worst around the coast, and down to -5 deg C in the mountains. Peak winter temperatures and spring and autumn averages are usually around 20-25 deg C. Peak summertime temperatures range between 30 - 40 deg C and low forties are not unknown. In the mountains summer temperatures rise to low/mid 20's. The island has been part of most major empires across history, and has a huge wealth of treasures from many of them for modern visitors to enjoy. Southern Cypus has a modern culture combining Greecian and British influence having gained independance in 1960. Many people speak English and the Eglish are well-liked, although visitors come from many countries world-wide. In Cyprus, driving is on the left, as in the UK. The currency is the Euro. Peyia is a large village just North of Paphos, a major provincial city. The village is based around a traditional village square. This has a Church, town Hall, and 2 supermarkets. In streets adjacent to the square are approximately 10 bars and restaurants. One of these is an excellent Meze restaurant less than 10 minutes walk away. Here you can enjoy an authentic Cypriot feast of a meal at a very reasonable price. Also in the village are at least 2 butchers and 4 bakeries plus other shops and services and a bank. The apartment is approx 0.5 miles or 10 minutes walk from the village centre.
