Luxury ground floor apartment, sleeps 6, 5 mins from beach
This ground-floor apartment has south-west facing views overlooking both pools and the gardens with a clear view of the sea in the distance. It has two verandas, one with comfortable rattan arm chairs/two seater sofa, ideal for you to get some shade during the day or relax in the evenings. Unlike most apartments, large patio areas with room for sun beds allow you to spread out and make the most of the space. A private parking space is located adjacent to the apartment.
You will be just a 5 minute walk away from a supermarket, bakery, bank, pharmacy, restaurant and bar and just 15 minutes walk from the restaurants and bars in the centre of Peyia.
Just 30 minutes drive from Paphos airport, the Andriana Exclusive Resort is a luxury complex located in the lovely village of Peyia, only 5 minutes drive from the beaches, restaurants and nightlife of the Coral Bay area. The resort is comprised of well maintained privately owned apartments with attractive landscaping arranged at different levels around two swimming pools and has many communal facilities including sun loungers, outdoor hot tub, gym/games room, indoor jacuzzi, sauna, change areas, showers & W/Cs.
Peyia is an attractive village on the hillside overlooking the Coral Bay area. It has a range of dining options including the Peyia Tavern (great mezes), Costas (fantastic pork chops!), Sophies (whose theme nights include Indian and Chinese), Savvas Grill, as well as bars including the Brewery Bar, Grande Cafe etc. Philippo's grocery store sells just about everything you could need and the village still retains a bakery, butchers, chemist etc. From Peyia, it is easy to head back into Paphos to explore the sites there, to nip down to Coral Bay, explore the Akamas peninsula, or head over the hills to Latchi and Polis - or indeed up into the Troodos mountains.
Activities: There are a wide range of activities available. Coral Bay offers swimming at a Blue Flag beach, as well as water sports including banana boat, pedal boats, paragliding, waterskiing, wakeboarding, snorkelling, diving etc. Jet skis and motor boats can be also be rented. Numerous cruises are available from Paphos harbour catering for a wide audience.
For those with children, the Waterpark in Paphos or Bird and Animal park near Coral Bay are worth a day out. Our 6 year old enjoys simply playing in the sand on the beach at Corolla Bay!
For the more active, there are numerous walking trails in the hills above Peyia, in the Troodos mountains, or in the Akamas peninsula. A visit to the turtle hatchery on Lara's Beach makes for a very peaceful trip. Jeep or quad bike safaris are available for those who want more excitement.
History: For those interested in history, the Paphos area boasts many archeological sites and museums with several UNESCO world heritage sites. See Aphrodite's rock - the birthplace of Aphrodite - at sunset, the sanctuary of Aphrodite - a must see in ancient times - , the stunning mosaics in the house of Dionysos, house of Theseus and House of Aion in Kato Pahos, the Tombs of the Kings, the amazing and extensive ruins at Kourion, the Mycenean settlement at Maa Palaiokastro etc.
There are also numerous monasteries worthy of a visit including Agios Neofytos which is just a short drive away.
More information on the location, activities and places to see is available upon request or check out our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/AndrianaResortPeyia.

About the Owner
About Tim Hulse
My wife, Beverly and I live near Chester in the UK with our 6 year old son. Bev spent a couple of summers in Cyprus while at university and fell in love with the place and we were coming so often for holidays that buying an apartment just made sense. We try and get out as often as we can for a break, but also to keep an eye on the place.
Tim Hulse purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Tim Hulse chose Coral Bay Area
We didn't want a property in a busy tourist area but somewhere a little outside where it would be quieter and closer to a more traditional village where we could still experience something of the old Cyprus. Peyia fits this bill, being close to the beaches, restaurants and night life of Coral Bay but just a little separated so you can get away from the bustle. You can also walk into Peyia to visit one of the traditional restaurants there.
We chose this apartment because it is on the ground floor with parking just outside and easy access to the pool - you don't have to climb multiple flights of stairs every time you come in and out. It is centrally located within the resort and overlooks the upper pool so you can keep your eye on the kids if they are down there without you! It's also only a short distance to the gym with it's amenities.
What makes this apartment unique
Very quiet resort with good amenities - mostly owned by Brits who only visit a couple of times a year so you've almost got the place to yourself most of the time. Good access to Coral Bay, but also up the hill to Polis and inland if you want to explore. Our property managers, a British couple, also live on site so if you have any problems they can be quickly sorted out.

This is not a luxury flat or complex. A miserable experience!
No prior advice was given by the owner that the flat had no landline and that mobile phones with active 'roaming' was essential.
We were not given the WiFi login details until I was able to contact the flat maintenance company. Even then, there was no WiFi for the first three days. As a result we were unable to communicate with anyone (except via email) without the help of a neighbour.
Tiled and marbled floors are fine for summer but terrible in winter.
Wall air conditioner heating does nothing to heat the flat. Without any carpeting, all the rooms were freezing at night.
The main bedroom heating didn't work and was not repaired until after we left.
There is no heating in the bathroom. Showering results in scalding shoulders and a freezing torso whilst standing on a slippery cold bath surface.
Instructions for all the appliances (except heating control) is in a large lever arch file. There was no prior warning that the TV is controlled in conjunction with a satellite receiver or how to active them. TV programs are minimal.
We were not forewarned that the flat only has solar heating, providing hot water at night. Nor were we forewarned that morning hot water requires the immersion heater to be activated, nor how to do this.
No prior advice was given for emergency assistance (hospital, police, fire) or where to find a supermarket.
The 'complex' has no exterior signage to identify it from others in the area.
Owner falsely claims that this is a 'luxury' flat. I have traveled around the world visiting over 30 countries and stayed in real luxury accommodation. Having basic equipment and furniture is not luxury.
The floor above this flat is occupied by a permanent Cypriot family. As there are no noise laws in Cyprus, we were unable to prevent two nights of blaring, distorted, Greek 'music' vibrating through the ceiling and walls.
Thanks to the poor accommodation, this was the worse 'holiday' that we have ever endured. This is the first and last time that we use Owners Direct.
Warm inviting and friendly
Great place. Friendly owner and if you need anything the management service is excellent. Peaceful and tranquil with all we needed to hand. Thanks very much for a lovely holiday. Harri & Rob

Had a really great time at this beautiful apartment. There is everything you could possibly want, a fully equipped kitchen with lots of extras. Wonderful living area and a fantastic outside patio/garden. The 2 swimming pools were almost our own private pools, only once seen someone else in them! There are plenty of games to keep you entertained and a large toy box overflowing with toys for the kids. A chest on the patio full of pool toys,balls and floaty things. We especially enjoyed using the BBQ, there was charcoal and lighters left for us to use (just replace anything you use). We used the big supermarket at Coral bay junction, so cheap, 2 massive serloin steaks €6!
The only thing we were disappointed with was that the hot tub was not in use ( derelict is more like it) and the jacuzzi bath was in the same condition. The gym was also a bit sorry looking with no A/C and floor to ceiling window facing the sun. Small petty points I admit but worth mentioning when we were looking forward to using them. Apart from this everything else was spot on, The free wifi went off one day but a text to the property agent and it was restored within hours!
The actual area is a little isolated and I fully recommend a car to take full advantage of the surrounding sites. There is one or two bars and a supermarket within walking distance but we found we needed to drive anywhere else. There is a bus down to Coral bay but this stops running at about 6pm, from there you can get another bus to Pathos harbour(615) and from there a bus to almost anywhere. It costs €5 for an all day ticket. A taxi from Coral bay to the apartment costs €10 each way
Overall I would fully recommend this apartment and look forward to renting Tims place again but for longer than a week next time
Sunny days and terrible roads is what we will remember
Tims place has it all and its just by the pool. You have youre own parkingspace just outside the door. This is a high quality apartment.
Hans, Lena &Kristina from Sweden
Excellant property. Everything you could think of in the apartment and a stones throw from the pool. Generally we had the pool to ourselves most days. It was perfect. Initially we felt very isolated with the location of the property but after venturing out the nearest restaurants and bars are a 10 minute walk away by the stadium. If you want to go further a field or into Coral Bay or Paphos I would recommend a car but the taxis are very good aswell. Cost 25 euro from Paphos to apartment in the early hours.
Thoroughly enjoyed it and wouldnt hesitate to return to this property
wonderful relaxing week in Peiya

Activity and Interests
Exclusive resort development close to Peyia village. Only 5 minutes drive from the beaches, bars and restaurants in Coral Bay, yet Peyia retains a more 'village' feel, with it's own village tavern, bars full of locals, as well as some cool, more contemporary places to relax. Peyia is amply supplied with supermarkets, local shops such as butcher, baker, fishmonger, pharmacy, banks, hairdresser, beauty salon etc.
Peyia is also well situated, offering excellent road access to numerous other places worth visiting, with Agios Georgios, the Akamas peninsula, Polis, Latchi, Kathikas and surrounding villages not far away.
