Oroklini is a traditional Cyprus village on the outskirts of Larnaca, which has been extended over the past few years but which still retains its old charm and fabulous taverns. It is a mainly residential area which is occupuied by an equal mix of Cypriots and British ex-pats. The village is well supplied with amenities and offers a range of shops, inlcuding a fabulous 24 hour bakery, a supermarket, a bank, a chemist, and an animal range with horse and donkey rides. The village also boasts a range of fine tavernas. A five minute drive away you will find the beaches which have been endowed with the internationally recognised Blue Flag Award, and on which you can arrange a large variety of water sports including sailing, paragliding, water skiing, jet-biking, banana-rides, wind-surfing and pedaloes.
Larnaca town centre is 10 minutes away by car, with its promenade and marina. It has an abundance of fine shops, department stores and an international Carrefourres cash and carry.It is well supplied with restaurants, particularly in the Mackenzie Beach area. Visit the ancient church of St Lazarus with the tomb of St Lazarus, the Fort, and local museum, and a further 20 mins drive takes you to Choirokoitia with an 8000 year old stone age village-a World Heritage site, and the spectacular Governors Beach.
Ayia Napa and Protaris
Ayia Napa is 20 minutes East by car, where you will find a large number of Golden sandy beaches, and the huge variety of acclaimed nightlife. Visit Cape Greko, take a boat trip and view the ghost town of Famagusta, or travel to the resort of Protaris further round the coast.
Nicossia, the capital city and still divided since the 1974 invasion, is a 30-40 minutes drive inland.
This villa is ideally located for the discerning traveller who wants to travel around the area and have a varied holiday. Visit the tourist beaches, shop in Larnaca, visit a variety of cultural sites, and yet stay in a quiet village setting where you can enjoy fine local food and wine. The village, unlike the tourist resorts, is open all year round and therefore makes an ideal base for a mid or low-season break.
The property is as described The house itself is modern & roomy with everthing needed for a holiday .
Two suggestions -
to invest in a decent ariel and modern television, the one provided has extremely poor reception.
I would dispense with the hot tub as this needs regular cleaning especially as it is standing warm water in the heat. I would imagine similar to a swimming pool. It certainly was not cleaned during our stay. The patio area is very sparse and offers little shade or interest
Apart from the initial introduction for the key there was no contact with the management of the property. The mobile signal is very poor for O2 and most of the time we had no signal it is a good job we did not need anything, although it would have been a courtesy to ask if everything was ok the following day.
There was no cleaning or laundering service offered (bedlinen). Though some may not want to pay for this some would.
Fine as a base.

Fine house, though with less privacy than we guessed from the pictures. We (family of four)were without water on the 1st and part of the 2nd day after our arrival, until the caretaker came and switched on the pumps. In the meantime, we could not wash, use the yacuzzi or do the laundry etc, which was not pleasant, considering we had paid over 400 GBP for the week.
The pictures of the interior were cosier than the actual rooms turned out to be. The promised hairdryer was nowhere to be found, so my hair was a mess for the week.
But we slept well and enjoyed the communal swimming pool, to which we resorted for showers.
Oroklini is a pleasant village, we actually bought a place ourselves there last week.

A very well equipped villa, comfortable, with a south facing patio. The area is quiet and although there is some building work close by it did not disturb us and will no doubt soon be finished.
The village has some excellant tavernas and a very well equpped Supermarket. There is also an Internet facility in the village.
The agents met us as planned and were most helpful during our stay.
Having previously stayed in an Hotel in Larnaca i found the Villa to be far more relaxing and enjoyable and would certainly choose it again.

1/ TV far too small bad reception, needs a satalite dish!
2/ DVD player not working properly, no sound.
3/ No cleaning materials provided, cost a fortune just to clean the sink.
4/ Jacuzzi was smelly, we had to empty it out and clean the filter.
5/ Was not told that we would be without water for 2 days on the trot, so could not fulsh the loos or brush teeth.
6/ Double bed very uncomfortable, springs stick in your back.
7/ Shower head falling off the wall
8/ Very slippery stairs, myself and son fell down them and hurt our backs, we are in much pain now.
9/ Water container unit was dirty and we could not drink from it, so had to buy our wated in small bottles.
10/ Smoke alarm goes off everytime you use the toaster. its far too close to the kicken part.
11/ sofa upholstery could do with a wash .
Thanks for your feedback - we will change the TV and investigate a satellite dish. Cleaning materials are not provided as the villa is self catering, and the cost reflects this. I apologise for the poor state of the jacuzzi, the water dispenser and the sofas and will take up these points with the management company. Likewise I was informed that the shower head had been fixed and am disappointed to hear that it is falling off the wall. Water shortage is ongoing all over Cyprus and the villas have big storage tanks. A letter should have been left at the villa to inform you of the water supply situation. I will arrange to review the smoke alarm although this has not been a problem before.

Good details to get to property and quick key transfer. Villa as described. very well equipped kitchen, everything you could need. Bedrooms very comfortable. Two hairdriers found - one in each bedroom wardrobe. Loved the hot tub, which is becoming popular, and communal swimming pool on corner of Block A was very clean. Properties either side and many others do have their own private pool. Views not that great as there is a lot of building work going on (not noisy or disruptive however).
Had been warned of water shortage but it was adequate for our needs. Hot water took ages to come through so mainly boiled kettle for washing up . Best hot water was in the shower!
Only needed to phone twice-once on arrival to ask about aircon (key fob goes in the slot by the front door) and once to ask about where to leave keys an departure. Instance access to support with emergency telephone number.
The red folder was good with places to eat and general information, maps etc ( La Mantra was dead but La Garda was very good). Fish and chips at Dekeleia on the front were the best we had ever tasted. Two very good bakeries in the village. Get stamps from the bookshop.
You will need a car, or be prepared to pay for taxis as it is quite a walk to the village shops or to get out and about. There is a bus from the village, we never saw it so dont know how regular this is. We had a lovely time. So relaxing, we could have just sat on the balcony in the sun all day! Thankyou.
