Sadly a dissappointment
Stayed for 2wks end of May 2012. On the face of it apt looked nice, but my heart sank when we opened the curtains in the louge/kichen, through one window a view of scrub/wasteland, through another the back of a dilapidated building, which was used as a cut-thru by residents of the neighbouring apt block. Haad a... few niggles with equip - frying pan with melted handle, melted fish slice, only one tea towel, an unpleasantly stained chopping board and although the floor looked clean our feet were black after waling on it for a while - property manager did buy a new board & extra tea towels and also steamed the floor, but essentially this made little or no difference! I even washed them myself with neat flash, but this didn't make much impact either, must be ground in. What pics don't show is overlooking the pool, which is far from private, is another apt block (approx 6-8 apts), long-lets occupied by Romanian families - on a couple of occasions some of them were leaning over their balcony looking down onto the pool whilst smoking and flicking ash down into the pool area. One apt has a black labbie pup confined to the balcony 24/7 sometimes whining/yapping for attention, v upsetting; I was not annoyed at the dog, but the owners. 2nd day no power, management co came out immediately to be fair, but admitted he was no electrician, gave us power back at the sacrifice of the A/C - glad it wasn't too hot in May! No satalite TV, apparently most of Cyprus have been watching SKY illegally, SKY cottoned onto this & moved the satalite a few degrees, so forget the TV! Definitely need a car to make the most of the area, buses 1/hr and nothing after 6pm to Paphos and beach is 20-25mins walk for able-bodied person. Very steep gradient up to Thekla Court, so definitely not for anyone with walking difficulties or the elderly. The small toilet closet had been used to store mops and had rather a bad smell eminating from it, as did the main stairwell at the entrance. Main bathroom toilet plays the 'bagpipes' for a few mins everytime you use is - funny to start with, but irritating after a while. Finally, any biting insect life tends to seek me out and I am sorry to say we had to buy flea spray from the supermarket to spray both rooms & our luggage as I had telltale small itchy red bites around my feet & ankles! Also no housekeeping for the 2wks we were there, apparently costs extra. Sorry, but true.
