About the property

Penthouse Apartment in Tersefanou, Larnaca District - Peaceful Location, Centrally Placed For All Activities

This Non-Smoking penthouse is located in a gated community. It is a fully furnished newer one bedroom penthouse apartment (sleeps four) that faces towards the sea and town of Kiti. The extra large (private) rooftop terrace allows for outdoor eating and sunbathing on the lounge chairs. As there are rarely many other owners or guests on site, you will usually have the tennis courts to yourself. There is a covered, secure car parking area under the building. The property is well placed for all types of activities - sunbathing at the beach, shopping, trekking in the Troodos Mountains, visiting galleries, museums, and antiquities, water sports, with restaurants and gift shops nearby. There is no phone; however, there is a laptop available for your use and you can buy WiFi airtime from City Cell Cyprus. You also have access to UK radio and TV stations (via WiFi).

About Sandi West

I am a small business owner who wanted a place to "get away from it all". That's exactly what this penthouse offers. However, since I'm a long way away from retiring, I also want to share my enjoyment of Cyprus and this retreat with friends, family, and other like-minded people. I have even made friends with the other absentee/rental owners on my floor and have made arrangements with them to allow me to rent out their flat if two (or more) couples want to go together, each with their own flat. Cyprus is a lovely island with friendly people and lots of history. We just want to share it all with you, our guests.

Sandi West purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Sandi West chose Larnaca region

This is located in a quiet village not far from activity when you want it. The only 6 star PGA golf course complex on Cyprus has been planned just to the valley east of the penthouse so you will be able to overlook the whole complex.

What makes this apartment unique

The whole of Regal Gardens is divided into two halves. The penthouse is in the eastern half which is mostly owned by absentee landlords. This means you will usually have the use of the pool in the western half all to yourself. The view from the rooftop terrace is spectacular, especially in the evenings when you can see the twinkling of the lights of Kiti with the Mediterranean Sea just beyond. It is a 5 minute walk into Tersefanou, a short 5 minute drive down into Kiti, a 10 minute drive to the beach and a 15 - 20 minute drive into Larnaca. The trip to / from the airport is only 10 -15 minutes. There are lots of activities for adults and kids alike. You can go shopping, trekking in the Troodos Mountains, drive to Waterworld, enjoy watersports, and take in local food and drink.

Guestbook comments from the owner

1 of the best holidays I've ever had! Would probably do car hire next time, but the apartment is absolutely amazing! You must be so proud to own such a gorgeous property. Will be going again this year, very soon hopefully. Becci D.

We had a great time and will be going back. Great location, superb views from penthouse, very clean, easy access and good parking. Thanks very much for a great holiday. S. Pitt

Your apartment was exactly as described. The bedroom was nice & spacious & bed comfy & plenty wardrobe space. The spare bed was comfortable the kids said (2 adults). The patio area was massive & it was lovely sitting out at night. The table & chairs were ideal. The distance to Larnaca & airport was great. I would have no hesitation recommending your apartment to friends and family. C. Edwards

Lovely, clean, well stocked apartment in great location.

  • 4 of 5

What can I say, we had an absolutely fantastic time in Cyprus and wonderful mornings and evenings spend in this lovely apartment. The roof terrace was amazing! (Would have been happy to pay a bit more for a hot tub up there If you ever want to invest 😉)...the apartment literally has EVERYTHING you can think of and is spotless! We had no pigeon issues, there are some there but didn't bother us as they, and the dog across the street, were quiet at night and thus had no negative impact on our stay.

Tersefanou is a lovely village and all the locals were extremely friendly! Mezedomamata (a taberna I may have spelt incorrectly!) was our fave, the guys (who I suspect are brothers) couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. We turned up there early, before opening, and they just brought us drinks and a menu! Our last night, Sunday, happened to be a festival day and there were huge parties of locals and live music. Brilliant.

The only reason this isn't a 5 star rating is that the pool was shut. Now I have messaged Sandi and apparently should have got an email stating that we should use the pool at the other side of the road. I have checked back through and don't appear to have received this. This isn't a criticism to Sandi as I am aware that she have no control over this and it is a management company, just a warning so that others are aware.

Overall this is just a fantastic apartment in a beautiful country, we would happily go back there and highly recommend it.

Thank you Sandi!

Heel fijn, comforatabel appartement .

  • 4 of 5

Heel fijn appartement in een stille omgeving. Aanrader.Fantastisch dakterras. probleempjes worden direct opgelost. Voor ons was de rust prima, maar voor jeugd is er niets te beleven. Auto nodig( goede verzekering geen luxe wegens steenval). Goede ligging om 2 kanten van het eiland te verkennen. Moeilijk te vinden: sla af na het veld, waar de gebouwen beginnen. Er staat een gebouwtje rechts. Zwembad was leeg ( eind oktober) en we vonden het vervelend dat WIFI alleen werkt met paypall.( hadden we graag vooraf geweten)

Aanraders: beide kanten van Nikosia, Cape Greko( muggen!), Halla Sultan Tekke, Kykkos( lange weg),Koningsgraven in Pafos.

veel kloosters sluiten een lange tijd na de middag.

Rather Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

Arrived at the apartment early evening by car, (an absolute must) to the sound of yapping dogs across the street. Apartment internally was clean and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and the shower powerful. The dogs were still barking when I took myself to bed approx: 23:30.

Was woken at 06:45 by yapping dogs. To my horror, 08:00 a digger turns up to work on waste ground across the street. A lorry then arrives with a load of soil. I immediately contacted the owner to establish what was going on, as this was only my first day and I was concerned. I also mentioned the barking dogs. The owner responded with; there was nothing she could do about the building work but could deal with the noisy dogs. On opening the patio doors and stepping onto the terrace I was greeted by pigeon poo, a dead pigeon, pigeon feathers and wings. I reluctantly swept them up but was to discover that this was to be a daily chore that also included another dead headless pigeon during my 2 week stay, (see pictures). This, it seems, is an issue that won't go away. I ceased using the terrace for this reason.

I then decided to go and look at the pool area as an alternative and take a swim Oh dear! (see pictures). Certainly not as depicted in the owners advertisement. It also came to my attention that the complex was situated near The Olympic Shooting Range. There would be sporadic bursts of gunfire throughout the day and one weekend it was particularly noisy and continuous from dawn to dusk.

On the third day I woke up not only to yapping dogs, (this was constant throughout the whole stay even though attempts were made to have the owners quieten them down) but a wet kitchen floor and the arrival of a digger and lorry over the road! I called Maintenance and they came to replace what was a leaking tap. I asked Paul why the pool, gardens and certain areas of the complex were not looking their best and he said it was due to lack of funds as some leaseholders were not paying their service charges. He sighed when I mentioned the pigeons and informed me that the owners of the dogs were to be visited by the landlord of the property. This has clearly been an issue for over a year, at least, as one of the guests wrote in the visitors book about this problem in Sept 2015.

The digger and lorry ceased visiting after the third day but, be aware there may be plans to develop the site in the future.

Nice apartment internally, shame about the rest. Tough on the owner.

Owner's Response: I would like to address the issue of the barking dogs first. Also, she was the first guest all summer who even mentioned the problem with the dogs so I did not know this was a problem until she mentioned it. When I called the management company, I discovered these dogs belong to a family that are currently being evicted, a process which at best is quite lengthy in Cyprus. As I explained to Victoria, there was nothing I could do about the digger and lorry since they were there to correct a problem that had developed just before her arrival and, once the problem was fixed, the noise stopped. The pigeons, on the other hand, is a problem I intend to address further when I visit the property next January. It should be clearly noted that the pigeon poo and dead pigeon were not on the terrace when Victoria arrived as the cleaner is very good about ensuring that the terrace is just as clean as the inside of the property before she leaves. I am very sorry Victoria did not enjoy herself, but not everyone can be pleased with every place they stay. I do not agree with the star rating of 1 when the main problem (the dogs) was beyond my control.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the apartment the size was ample absolutely spotless and had everything to hand. The rooftop terrace was huge and very private it was great just to chill and relax in the sun on the days we we were not exploring Cyprus and lovely in the evening just so peaceful. We will be back in the future and wouldn't think twice about staying anywhere else, also there is ample parking thank you Sandi for a wonderful stay and great communication with your self
