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 Oroklini

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.

Notes:
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 6 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.

Fabulous apartment in ideal location in village

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse apartment is ideally located in Oroklini at 10 mins walk inland for the traditional village feel, or alternatively a 10 min walk south towards the beach for a more modern feel with more eateries/bars etc. We chose to eat in the village every night so we could experience the Cypriot hospitality and were not disappointed with the choice. The apartment is well equipped with everything you may need, and the apartment blocks are very well maintained. The lift was a bonus with heavy cases! The outside space is just amazing, as it has the sun all day, but also catches the breeze in the afternoons. Plenty of sun loungers and tables/chairs. We spent several days relaxing and soaking up the rays on the balcony. The weather was glorious and the beach at this time of year (October) was very quiet. The beach is particularly good for families with children as you can walk a long way out before the water becomes too deep. We went to the public beach (beds/parasols for hire) to the east of Palm Beach Hotel and there are 2 cafe's directly behind the beach meaning you never have to worry about food/drink. By one of these are toilets/changing rooms and showers. The supermarket is very close by at around 5 min walk. There is also a bakery next door which is open 24hrs.

I must thank Shane for his patience leading up to our holiday. He made sure that we had all the information we needed to enable a flawless holiday experience. We are certainly considering returning as it was such an amazing and relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings. Thanks Shane and Mario

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic penthouse apartment within a short walk of everything you could possibly need on your holiday such as shops, restaurants, etc.

The apartment is clean and well equipped. The WiFi is very useful.

The veranda really gives this place an edge over others in the area. Simply stunning with a great selection of loungers, chairs, eating space and even a BBQ. The communal pool area is a real bonus and was always quiet and peaceful.

The owners are super friendly and made the booking process very easy indeed.

Overall, one of the best holidays ever! Will definitely be returning!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

That woman is the bossiest woman ever!!!

She's tapped their shoulder twice to give them rubbish

Cannot recommend this place enough! Excellent location, brilliant facilities and the best veranda with so much space for chilling out and sunbathing. Really close to lots of bars and restaurants, we especially loved the Corfu Tavern.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment with superb facilities. Great base for our family holiday with access to the pool and local beaches.

Even our friends and their families who own apartments in the same block were able to join us on the terrace for a couple of evening gatherings.

An amazing relaxing space!

  • 5 of 5

A clean and modern Penthouse apartment just a short walk to for local shops etc.

The apartment is nice and quiet and all the facilities and amenities you could ever want including wifi, etc. Even a lift for disabled access!

It has two LARGE double bedrooms and a fold out sofa bed in the lounge as well as a decent sized bathroom with a walk in shower.

The one standout thing about this penthouse apartment is the outside space. Wow! The pictures do not do it justice. So much space for relaxing with lovely views of Larnaca. It is tastefully decorated with lots of different seating areas, sun loungers and a barbecue.

Booking the property was simple and we were supplied with all the relevant information from the owners via email and there also with an information folder within the property giving further information upon arrival.

I have no reservations about returning to this property and will be booking again next year.

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

Location

Coast/Beach:

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.

Travel:

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.

Distances:

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

Once the further full amount of your stay is paid the initial £150 becomes a security deposit held by us.
