About Shane Prosser

I live in Wales with my partner. Six years ago we decided to branch outside of the UK and purchase a Holiday Home in Cyprus. Cyprus is where my partners family heritage is from and on our first visit there many years ago we both fell in love with the country and its way of life.

Shane Prosser purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Shane Prosser chose Larnaca region

We decided in Oroklini because of its central location to the Airport, Larnaca town and many beaches. However, we got a lot more that just that. The town of Oroklini and its surrounding areas are picturesque and full of traditional Cypriot character whilst flirting with modern living. Its an ideal location for so many reasons and we are glad we chose to live here.

What makes this apartment unique

The unique selling point to us when purchasing the property was the veranda. With its area covering twice that of the apartment itself we knew we had to have it! We love spending long summer days from the morning right until the depths of night on the veranda. Watching the skyline change whilst cooking on the BBQ for friends and family is a delight. Then in the evening, turning on the outside lights and looking into the star filled sky with a drink just cannot be beaten. This makes the holiday, not having to worry where the sun is as its a south facing apartment you can always enjoy the Cyrus Sun.

Outside: This apartment benefits from its own private veranda which over looks the coastline and mountain range. This stunning veranda can be used to sunbath, BBQ, eat on and generally relax all at the same time due to its generous size. There are 2 sun beds to soak up the Cyprus sun, a bench with a table and two chairs to sit around in the morning whilst drinking that first cup of coffee, a patio table and chairs to enjoy your home cooked food on the veranda, a mobile parasol to protect you where ever you fancy sitting and a large BBQ for you to cook your own meze on. As the night draws in there are several fixed lights on the veranda walls to keep you out there for as long as you fancy. The size of the outdoor space is not to be under estimated with a huge 18m by 10m sun trap which flows into 4m by 2m shaded area which can easily fit tables and chairs. The complex also boasts a communal pool via a locked gate so only people on the complex can enter. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: The apartment is cleaned prior to guests arrival and also on departure. Towels and bed linen are all supplied.

Wow! What a stunning veranda! Cracking apartment

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant apartment that was really well equipped! The hosts thought of everything, even down to a freezer box and freezer packs which was perfect for days at the beautiful local beaches or the pool (once you manage to drag yourself away from the fantastic veranda of course) The appartment is situated in a quiet village with some lovely resteraunts and bars just a few minutes walk away. Some really quirky local places to eat and relax!

The place is nice and close to the airport and larnaca itself but also a prime spot to hit some fantastic beaches!

Great stay! Would definitely stay again! Thanks Shane and Mario

Spectactular, clean, comfortable and first class

  • 5 of 5

After spending the last 8 years staying in Oroklini at various apartments for up to 8 weeks a year this was by far the best. Right from the start the owners were first class with any information required and advice given which all went to making a wonderful stress free amazing two week stay. Air conditioning during hot spells hardly needed as the apartment has doors and windows where the cool breeze can blow through. Apartment has absolutely all and anything required. Thank you Shane and Mario for sharing your beautiful Cyprus home with us. Only 50 weeks to go until we are back!!!! Linda & David

Wonderful Oroklini rental

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property based on the reviews of previous bookers and from pictures of the property which show the excellent huge sun terrace where you could spend the whole holiday if you were not adventurous. However there is a pool in the complex which was always empty (although it was April and the water was naturally cold!). There are excellent places to eat which are just a short walk away and a 24 hour bakery and adjacent supermarket provide access to everything you need for a comfortable stay. The apartment is well equipped and easy to access from the motorway which takes you straight to the airport as well as to other places on the island. We were not disappointed with any aspect of the booking and are highly likely to return, if only to enjoy more time on the beach and visit once again the salt water lake bird reserve (both walking distance). Highly recommended.

Lovely terrace and spacious apartment, but cold in the evenings in March!

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this penthouse apartment, although we did find the flat a little cold in the evenings, it being perhaps an unusually cold March. Our arrival was a little more difficult than it might have been because it was dark by the time we arrived and there was a car in our parking space, which made us think that the apartment was already occupied and we had been inadvertently double-booked. Then we found it hard to actually see the digits on the key safe as there was no light in the parking bay. Luckily we had our mobile phones with us and therefore a handy light, though it was still hard to see the tiny numbers on the padlock even with the torch app on.

The terrace was lovely, especially when the sun was shining, but we had two cloudy days when it was hard to get warm. The evenings were particularly cold and, although the air conditioning in the living area worked in reverse as a heater, the two units in the bedrooms didn't work efficiently and there was no heating at all in the bathroom so I was cold after showering and cold at night.

The hot water pressure in the little sink in the bathroom was unfortunately very poor indeed, though the water pump and the water heater (on the cloudy days) worked well in the actual shower.

Everything else about the apartment was very nice, but I wouldn't book the place again in March because of the cold. This is no one's fault, of course, but when I compared temperatures with the UK I realised that it was only one degree warmer in the morning in the Cyprus apartment than it was in a rainy and windswept town in Northern England!

On the sunny days we did have, we really enjoyed relaxing on the terrace but we did find the road noise surprisingly loud and constant, something which I hadn't read in any previous reviews.

Overall, however, the apartment was very nicely put together and furnished, with a very nice kitchen and dining area and a comfortable seating area and we would definitely consider coming back to the apartment in a sunnier month!

If we were to come again, it would be nice to be assured that a strange car definitely won't be in our parking place next time, because it stayed there for the whole week that we were there!

Beautiful Town & Fab Penthouse! Worth every Cent!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property, The Veranda and patio are a huge wow factor. I've done a huge amount of travelling in some of the best accommodation and never had a balcony or terrace anything like this, really enjoyed having a bbq and drinks in the sunshine with my friends. Also very impressed by the little extra touches like the 'Share shelf' and a great amount of spare clean towels really made a big difference. What i also loved is the area, this is the second time i have visited so had chance to see the hundreds of Flamingos at the lakes and also walked to the top of the hills behind the penthouse and was totally blown away by the views!! Made for some amazing photos for facebook. Huge Thank you to the owners for helping to make it a super great holiday for us. Look forward to staying again next year. Richard

There are lots of picturesque beaches flooding the coast line of Cyprus. Some are just a short stroll from the apartment and other a short drive. The closest of which is Yanathes Beach being a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Yanathes beach in Oroklini stretches for 2km along Larnaca Bay. Heading North, by car, will bring you to Makronissos Beach in 20 minutes, the first of many blue flag beaches along the Ayia Napa coastline. All these beaches provide Sun beds and Shelter for you to enjoy.


Larnaca airport is situated 22km south of Oroklini and takes only 18 minutes to drive to. A taxi for 4 ranges between €25 to €40 to the apartment from the airport. Although it is not essential to rent it can inhance your holiday experience for exploring other landmarks and stunning sites the Island has to offer. To make matters easier Cyprus is one of the few countries that, like the UK, drive on the left hand side of the road.


The apartment is situated on the fringes of Oroklini and within a 5 minute stroll you will be in the heart of the village. Larnaca itself is a short 15 minute (10km) drive south of the apartment and
