About David Jepson

Kathy and I have been coming to Cyprus for about 15 years and 10 years ago we decided to buy our own little piece of Cyprus. So in 2007 we took ownership of our new-build apartment on Hesperides Gardens. What a lovely complex ! Very relaxing and home from home. We are both still working, but our plan is to go out to Cyprus more in our retirement. For now, we would like you to share our experience of our living, together with the wonderful selection of restaurants and bars and beautiful scenery, which in turn will help pay towards the running costs.

David Jepson purchased this apartment in 2007

Why David Jepson chose Universal

Good central position means that we can go down to the harbour or equally to the old town in a very short space of time.

Cyprus is in some ways very English, such as the 3 pin sockets are the same, they drive on the same side of the road and it is so green and pretty, which I don't understand with all the fantastic weather at all times of year.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is a 'home from home' with all the mod cons. Hopefully we have thought of everything, but please give us feedback if there is something that we can improve on

Terrific apartment, home from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with elderly parents. The apartment has everything you could ever need. Having stayed in many similar properties, this is the best equipped we have ever seen.

Spacious and comfortable in in good location to walk or get 5 minute taxi to town/harbour.

Great contact from the owners during booking and prior to arrival.

Definitely recommend.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Pafos very much. The apartment was very comfortable, the pool very nice and warm, the town was busy and alive. We benefited greatly from David's very accurate description of the apartment and his guide to the surroundings.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of an apartment! It truly is home from home and we have absolutely no complaints. The moment you walk through the door you realise that this is "someone's home" and not just another "rental" and treat it with that respect. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms. A fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher (which we didn't use), fridge freezer, washing machine,microwave, and more glasses, pots, pans and bowls than I have at home! A beautiful balcony to sit out on with dining table/chairs as well as patio furniture. A quiet place to stay. A TV with more channels than we could get through! We had hired a car and there was a parking space for that too! Also two beautiful swimming pools. Easy to find from the airport (approx 20 mins drive).We walked most days down to Kato Pahos (seafront), which took about 20 mins (stroll), but you could spend all day walking along the front from one end to the other. Plenty to see and do in and around that area, especially Tomb of Kings and Paphos Mosaics (which really is a must see). Loads of restaurants, bars etc. Disappointed with Coral Bay, but may be because it was out of season. Loved north up at Polis/Latchi. Larnaka - don't waste your time unless all you want is a sandy city beach! Nicosia - worth it for the experience and history of the island but hour and half journey time. Well worth a look round! The Troodos mountains and Kykkos Monastery an absolute must! We have never seen such opulence in all our lives at the Monastery and you don't have to be religious to appreciate it either! Take the time to stop in and look at places of interest - museums, churches etc - they are amazing! Do yourself a favour and visit the tourist information - get a map of the island which highlights places of interest and visit some of them - ladies be warned, you will be asked to cover up if shorts & t-shirts! Also note that if you visit an historical site - Paphos mosaics - you can buy a day ticket to cover other sites - Kourion etc and is exceptional value for money but allow time! A must is Pissouri Bay and the old coast road back to Paphos - just stunning. The temperature was 20 degrees every day - no rain! The apartment very well situated for easy access to any part of the island and having travelled, Paphos is definitely the quieter and least developed part of Cyprus. We just hope that it remains that way! All in all, a fantastic place to stay and would not hesitate in recommending it or staying there again!

Excellent Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, nicely furnished and fully equipped apartment. The apartment complex Hesperides includes a large swimming pool area and well kept gardens. Centrally situated close to all the necessary amenities i.e. modern shopping mall, local shops, Paphos old town, port and restaurants. Beaches are close by. Good bus and taxi options if you do not have a car.

Amazing home from home

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is quite lovely. Spacious, airy, spotlessly clean with everything you would have at home. Very roomy compared to many we say and in lovely surroundings. The balcony virtually overlooks the pool and there are trees, plants and greenery all around the pool which again is unique compared to many we saw in our party. Beds are beautifully comfortable and kitchen has everything you would need. Within easy walk of harbour, eating places and shops. Taxi to main area 7 Euro. I cannot say anything negative and thoroughly recommend this apartment. Thank you David.

Another restful stay at this delightful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in David’s and Kathy’s apartment several times in the past. It is always beautifully clean and very well maintained. We’ve said this before, and will say again - its like Home from Home. Having recently had a major operation, I welcomed the opportunity to get some restful time to recouperate. The complex at Hesperides Gardens is lovely an quiet and we spent a lot of the time relaxing by the pool. The pool area and water is always clean and regularly patrolled by a security guard - not that he’s needed, but nice to know he’s there.

Also, its comforting to know that David and Kathy have purchased a set of sun loungers for exclusive use of their guests which are under lock and key by the pool - so no worries over the availability of loungers!

Unable to drive at the moment, we spent more time walking in Paphos which was delightful. We found a few new restaurants worthy of mention (new to us that is). We found Gabor, and Ficardo serve particularly good food at a range of prices to suit all pockets and tastes.

Thank you very much to David and Kathy for keeping such an excellent apartment and being so helpful.

Nearest Airport
15 Kilometres
Paphos International


There are local beaches within walking distance (20 minutes) and it is very popular to swim in the sea quite close to the harbour (near the KFC). Coral Bay is a popular beach destination, but our favourite is Corallia Bay which is a few minutes further on from Coral Bay (if you go on the bus, stay on until the very last stop). There are water sports available at most of these beaches.

If you head towards Limassol there are nice beaches at Pissouri and Kourio and Aphrodites Rock is picturesque


Paphos International airport is only 15km away. Take a taxi for 25 to 30 euros and you will be at our apartment within 15 minutes.

Many car hire booths also at the airport

Larnaca airport is about 1 hour 30 minutes drive along the motorway

Car hire is recommended if you want to explore further afield, but the buses also provide a good service. The bus stop is approximately 200 metres from our apartment.


A 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive takes you down to the main harbour area with shops, restaurants and bars.

Paphos old town is in a different direction and slightly further.

Coral Bay is about 20 minute drive or you can catch the bus from the harbour.

There is a bus stop about 200 metres from the apartment that takes you to the harbour and beyond if required

Further Details:

A water park is situated a 10 minute drive away and also accessible by bus.

Cyprus is a beautiful destination to get married and a local company carries guests around on an 'open top wedding bus'

We have many recommended sight seeing locations and recommended restaurants in a folder at the apartment

Skiing is available in the Troodos mountains in the winter
