About the Owner

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.

Nice clean apartment, mountain view balcony

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned, and could not fault the apartment or complex. Well equipped kitchen, and a very comfortable bed. BBC world news channel and other channels are in English on the TV. It was hot in Cyprus at the time and we used the ceiling fan to keep us cool at night after having the air-con on to kill the heat, easy to use.

The balcony has wonderful views of the hills, and we spent time relaxing there in this quiet area.

The complex swimming pool is fantastic, we had two swims each day and had the pool virtually to ourselves. So warm, almost bath temperature.

Savvas Grill, a short stroll from the complex is well worth a visit, the food is top notch and the Greek night which we attended was excellent.

You can also go out of the complex from the far end and a 10 min walk to Peyia village. There are many ex pats living in the area whom frequent the pubs on the main road. Papantaniou Bakery has a wide range of delicious cakes bread and rolls, we had an evening stroll to the high street bought our rolls had a meal in one of the pubs and struck up conversation with the locals, really nice.

Would recommend the apartment, we used the oven and cooked a meal on a couple of occasions and had everything we needed.

Great apartment in pegia

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, nicely decorated and contained everything we needed. The pool area was peaceful - most days we had the massive pool to ourselves. If you want to experience the authentic cyprus and be surrounded by "real" local tavernas, as well as being near the gorgeous coral bay beach and strip if you fancy something a bit more lively, this is the apartment for you. Thankyou - we had a great time and am sure we will be returning soon.

Fabulous two week stay at Kevin and Julie's apartment. All I can say it was a home from home for myself and my family. Would recommend this apartment and complex to anyone.

Already planning our next stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday and a delightful studio apartment.

We have read another review which is full of complaints.....how untrue that account is and I believe was caused by the misuse and abuse of the apartment by that author. We saw nothing which even resembled a need to complain nor were we disappointed with what we saw.

We are already planning on going back and will happily stay in the studio again. It has a view of the hills and we noticed how quiet it was there despite there being others staying on the complex.

The apartment was clean and tidy on our arrival, there was a complete guide book on how to access and use the facilities, plus contact details for the management team. These were clear and concise.

Bedding and towels were supplied clean and with spares if needed, the kitchen had everything we needed.

The complex was clean and we saw cleaners working every day.

We recommend Savvas Grill about 100yds from the apartment, not only for the great local cuisine and wine, but the warm and friendly welcome too.

We are going back again next year and will recommend the studio to anyone.

Owner's Response: Nick had previously stayed in our 2 bedroom apartment and this was his 1st time in the studio. We are glad that he and Mrs D found the studio up to the same standard as the 2 bedroom apartment (see separate page), with the same high standards of equipment, furnishings and cleanliness. We look forward to seeing returning guests again. Thanks for submitting this feedback!

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Paphos at 16 Miles Nearest Barpub : The Brewery Bar at 0.3 Miles Nearest Golf : Paphos Golf / Tsada Golf Club at 7 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Savvas Grill at 0.25 Miles Nearest Ski : Troodos at 27 Miles Nearest Beach : Coral Bay at 2 Miles Car: recommended

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.

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.
