Both Ayia Napa and Protaras and Pernera hold a huge variety of pubs, clubs, restaurants and discos and a multitude of watersports.
The apartment covers an internal area of 114 sq. metres and has a verandah of 45 sq. metres, so you will not be short of space.

There are 3 large double bedrooms ( one of which has a communal shower / WC room ) and a further bedroom with a pair of twin beds. All bedrooms have built in wardrobes.

The apartment is cleaned immediately prior to arrival. Although Cyprus has the luxuary of being an island which is virtually crime free, the apartment has been fitted with extra security measures / locks for your added security of personal belongings and piece of mind.
The large patio area is accessed through patio doors in the lounge and the fourth bedroom, on which, you will find table, chairs, sun loungers, etc.
Sit back and relax on the spacious patio or take a swim in the communal pool which is located within metres of the patio. The pool is close enough to toss a coin into from the verandah, but we ask that you do not try ! The pool and main rear communal areas are gated / fenced off with railings to retain its private status and access is gained to the gates from the side of our apartment block. The current view on the pool side of the apartment ( ie, from the verandah ) is towards the sea and Famagusta Bay and the ghost town of Famagusta.
The apartment is West facing, therefore, during the summer months, from sunrise until about 0900, part of the patio is in the shade, allowing you to enjoy breakfast in the shade in the early morning. However, for guests wishing to have breakfast in the warmth of the early morning sun, just move your loungers to the edge of the verandah and you can enjoy uninterrupted sunshine from dawn to dusk.
At the rear of the apartment there is an allocated covered parking area with plenty of space.
The apartment is a NO SMOKING apartment. We respectfully request you do not smoke inside the apartment.
Detailed directions and a map will be e-mailed to you on completion of booking.
We request you vacate the apartment on the day of departure by 10am, however, provided there are no back to back bookings we will be flexible with regards to this time. It is unlikely we will be able to give you a definite answer at the time of booking but please advise us when booking should a later departure time be required.
Car hire is advisable as there are many beautiful beaches, traditional inland Cypriot villages and historic sites within a short driving distance.
There are many car hire companies at Larnaca Airport and in the Kapparis / Protaras areas. Whilst there are many companies, we use Empire car Rentals, Kapparis.
For ease, you can collect the car from the airport and dro p it back off there.
Car hire can be booked in advance via the internet.
Please note that car hire in Cyprus is not available to anyone under 21 years of age.
REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR DRIVING LICENCE.
Taxis are available at the airport and cost around EUR45 each way.
SUPERMARKETS AND SHOPS
There are a number of supermarkets close to the apartment, details of which can be found within our information pack in the apartment. These include 2 large U.K style supermarkets, from which you can purchase almost anything from groceries to sunbeds. These sell the same produce / brands as you would find in England.
There is also a 24 hour bakery, located approx 1km from the apartment. The bakery stocks a good range of essential foods as well as traditional breads and pastries. We have found the bakery very useful, particularly when arriving in the early hours of the morning, for purchases of milk, etc.
Generally, most restaurants in Cyprus are cheaper than they are in the UK.
Cyprus has a wide range of different international cuisines available unlike some other holiday islands you may have sampled, all at reasonable prices. We have tried out many local tavernas, which offer traditional Cypriot dishes of Kleftiko, Stifado, Moussaka and the bellybursting, mouthwatering Mezes. Cypriot food is at its best in the many genuine tavernas and you’ll be more than pleasantly surprised if you venture into one of these for both food and atmosphere. There is a huge variety of restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets in the tourist areas.
We have included a list of suggested restaurants in the Kapparis and surrounding areas in our information pack in the apartment.
PLEASE NOTE: In common with many other larger properties in Cyprus, there are penalties in place (per person per night) for over occupancy above the 8 persons allowed for insurance reasons.
We have just returned from spending two weeks at this apartment and we had a really enjoyable stay. The apartment had everything you need and it had lots of little touches which really make a difference.
It is in a nice peaceful area but within easy distance of Paralimni, Protaras and Ayia Napa if you want the hustle and bustle. I personally would recommend hiring a car as although the distance to nearest shop etc is not far it seems it in the heat of the day.
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment and will Im sure stay here again.
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Cyprus where we have been many times before. As we had been to most areas of Cyprus, we decided to visit Kapparis, which is only 15 mins away from Protaras, an area we know very well. Kapparis is a quiet location, with the added advantage of being close to the more livelier resorts of Protaras or Ayia Napa. Fig Tree Bay, in Protaras is a beautiful sandy beach, but there is also a lovely smaller sandy beach only 5 mins (by car) from the apartment, called Firemans beach, where the locals go. This has to be Kappariss best kept secret!
We were not disappointed with the location or the apartment (which in my view is better than described). Both were ideal for our diverse party. The owner, Michael, was very helpful in sending us lots of information about the apartment and the area, which really helped. The apartment was child friendly as well as catering for the older ones in our group. There is a large supermarket nearby, but you do need a car to get there, although in cooler weather you may be able to walk.
All in all we had a fantastic time and look forward to returning next year.
This property was excellent value for money. Although the original description was accurate it in no way fully conveyed just how nice the apartment was and in my opinion the property which greeted us on our arrival exceeded the description provided. The pool is well situated the sun being present from early morning until sunset. There are ample sun loungers situated around the pool and despite the fact that it is a communal pool provided for the use of the whole apartment block, was never over crowded. I would be more than happy to recommend the apartment to friends. By choice, we only hired a car for part of our stay but even so the town of Kapparis is no more than a 10-15 minute walk away where you will find a good selec tion of both traditional Cypriot and British cuisine (not forgetting the Chinese restaurant) and a selec tion of convenience stores/supermarkets and a number of pub style bars all providing various forms of nightly entertainment. An additional 5 mins walk will get you to one of the local beaches which are clean and relatively quiet. The larger beaches have snack bars and tavernas either on or close by.
This apartment was an excellent base for a family holiday and the information pack providing details of local amenities, restaurants, places of interest and local taxi companies provided by the owners helped to make this the complete holiday experience.

We have just returned from 2 weeks in this apartment and we had a fantastic stay. It was really clean and so spacious, everything had been thought of. The information file was very useful and detailed.
The owner was very helpful and contact details given in the event of any problems, not that we had any.
All in all I would recommend this apartment to anyone and am sure we will stay there again.
Sarah from Pontefract
We found this apartment to be exceedingly spacious and well presented. The decor is modern, with good quality, clean and comfortable furnishings giving it a real home from home feel. It is very well equipped - 3 double bedrooms and a twin bedroom, all with good wardrobe space. The bathroom is a good size, and it was useful to have an ensuite shower room too. The main living area is huge -nice big comfy sofas at one end, well equipped kitchen at the other and a huge party sized dining table in the middle - still with space left to swing a whole cattery full of cats! Theres even a cupboard with games in it should the kids find themselves at a loose end for half an hour! The balcony and pool areas are equally roomy, again with clean, modern furniture.
The owners of this accomodation are to be commended for their well thought out information pack, which not only hightlighted local attractions and provided maps to local facilities such as supermarkets etc, but also recommended a wide variety of places to eat.
