Apartment overview - owner's description

Large, luxurious penthouse apartment on a quiet, award winning development. Great views from south facing balcony of the countryside and sea. Short walk to beach, harbour, shops and nightlife.

Hello from Roger and Sarah and welcome to award winning luxury in Paphos town. Quietly situated and suitable for all ages, 5 minutes walk from the beach, harbour, shops, nightlife, tavernas and archaeological sites and only 15 minutes drive from the airport.

Our penthouse apartment is situated on a small development that was awarded the coveted Four Star Bentley International Homes Award for the Best Cypriot Development in 2004.

A large spacious apartment very suitable for wedding parties, with outstanding south facing views from the balcony across the swimming pools and grounds with countryside and sea view beyond. All of our guests have been delighted to stay in such a comfortable apartment and ideal location.

The award winning Paradise III consists of traditionally styled executive villas, townhouses, luxury apartments and penthouses. All surround the quiet, private and spacious gardens with a large swimming pool, and small paddling pool for children. Here the sun shines all day long!

Our penthouse apartment has all the facilities for six people with a large dining table for all the family. The two bedrooms are separate from the living area for extra privacy. One bedroom with king sized bed and the other with two singles, a fully sprung sofa bed is in the living room and suitable for a further two adults. The beds are made particularly comfortable with the addition of memory foam overlays. All towels and linen provided.

We bought the apartment and furnished it with quality furniture and fittings as our second home. We therefore give you a clean and modern ‘home from home’ with everything you need. A fully fitted kitchen with microwave oven, ceramic hob, large fridge freezer and washing machine. Satellite TV and DVD, radio and CD player and free WiFi.

Air conditioning/heating units throughout, included in the price, together with large fans in the living areas and bedrooms.

Our guests always appreciate a welcome pack on their arrival after a long journey, together with our other little touches such as, DVD’s, CD’s, first aid box, information sheet and also maps and leaflets about ‘what to do’ and ‘where to eat’ in the local area. We also have an English Property Manager who will be available for emergencies.

When it is really hot the balcony has an area of shade together with table and chairs and recliners. Around the pool we have designated sun beds for the apartment and umbrella.

We cannot wait until we can move to Cyprus but in the meantime please accept our hospitality as our guests and come and enjoy the beauty, history and friendly relaxing atmosphere of this romantic island and stay at our apartment.




Kato Paphos
Kato Paphos, or lower Paphos, is a very clean and safe environment. Paradise Gardens III is close to the town, it is quiet, overlooking open countryside in the distance and away from any noisy major roads or new developments. It is 2 minutes from a shop and taverna. The airport is only 15 minutes by car to the apartment and taxis are always available at the airport or in Kato Paphos. In Cyprus they drive on the left and although it is easy to hire a car it is not necessary when staying at this apartment.

It is undeniably a magical island as it has everything, the sunshine, the beaches, the views and mountains, the greenery and beautiful blossom, the restaurants and delicious food and wines, the water sports for the teenagers, and night life. But above all the friendliness from the Cypriots, who mostly speak English and always welcome you warmly.

Eating out in Cyprus is not expensive and offers plenty of choice and good food. Some restaurants providing free entertainment and a night of dancing also. The night club area too is friendly, loud and entertaining, beginning about 10pm!

Cyprus boasts dozens of blue flag awards for its beaches. There are no private beaches on the island and only a short walk from the apartment is a lovely beach both secluded and sandy.

New in 2013 is Planet Adventure (www.planetadventure.com) which is just a short bus ride from the apartment.
One of the three world class water parks is only 10 minutes from the apartment. But if golf is what you want there are three top class golf courses within 20 minutes drive.

If you are energetic the area has facilities for horse-riding, go-karting, cycling, hiking and even skiing. There is skiing and snowboarding from January to March on Mount Olympus in the Troodos Mountains.

Paphos is one of the most beautiful and ancient towns of Cyprus. Legend, history and culture are all around you. Once the capital of Cyprus in Roman times it is scattered with archaeological sites and rich with antiquities, UNESCO includes Paphos on its World Cultural Heritage List. Cyprus is the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love.

Paphos, one of the most beautiful and ancient towns of Cyprus offers a most romantic walk across the front and along past the colourful tavernas and harbour to the mediaeval fort or ancient Odeon, where concerts and events are often held.

There is no doubt that Cyprus offers something for everyone of all ages and all year.

If you would like further information, please contact Roger & Sarah by e-mail and we will be very happy to help you plan your next holiday.

A definite home away from home. A clean, spacious apartment with a lovely view of the pool from a decent sized balcony, only complaint is trees need topping off as they are getting too tall. Plenty of information provided in the apartment by both the owners and previous renters, always handy for tips and recommendations. Only 10 mins stroll to the front. Practically had pool to ourselves, at most we had maybe 3 other families at pool which for high season is fantastic. I only give 4 stars for facilities as would have preferred a couple of bath sheets along with the towels which were provided, a very minor thing in an overall fantastic stay. Communication and directions from owner were great, I would definitely recommend and return to this apartment. Thank you.

Dear Lorraine
I am pleased you had a great holiday and thank you for your review. We are going out ourselves next week and intend to arrange for the trees to be cut back. There should have been bath towels available for you and I will look into why there was not.

what a fantastic experience. this was our first holiday in a private apartment and will certainly do it again.
any issues were quickly resolved by the on site manager

Friends from Woodbridge, USA Oct 2013

A fantastic stay at a great apartment! Other than a few pots and dishes being a bit dirty on our arrival, the apartment was very clean and well-prepared for us. Its easy walking distance into Kato Paphos and the beach, and was perfectly comfortable for six people.

One thing to add for the "information sheet": there is, in fact, a NEW market just down the road from Paradise Gardens. Its even closer than the old kiosk, and it also has fresh fruits and vegetables. Such a pleasant surprise!

Thanks for a great week!

From Eastbourne, United Kingdom May 2013

The property is conveniently placed to walk to Kato Paphos (about 10 minutes with one major road to cross). It was clean and comfortable and the Welcome Pack was much appreciated as we arrived late at night.
We were disappointed not to get the quiet holiday that we hoped for as there is a farm (?) nearby that must have at least 20 dogs that bark consistently 24 hours a day. After one attempt to relax by the pool we gave up and spent every day away from the apartment.
The apartment would benefit from fly screens to enable visitors to benefit from through breezes in the evening rather than running the air conditioners.

From South Shields, United Kingdom Oct 2012

We had a great time. Property was 15 - 20 mins from airport by taxi (30 euros). Bar/Restaurant was a 5 minute walk from the apartment, where there was also a shop close by. The apartment was everything we wanted and was in excellent condition overlooking the pool. Good size balcony for relaxing on an evening. The amenities were all you could want. There was about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the beach / harbour. We have 2 children aged 12 and 14 and they never complained once. (need I say any more) Go-Karting and Mini Golf were only a short bus ride away ( 1 euro ) We would definitely recommend this apartment.

From Maidenhead, United Kingdom Aug 2012

May 2015 Ideal for a relaxing break. Fabulous apartment. Spacious and light. In the bedrooms there was plenty of wardrobes and storage. Towels and bed linen were supplied. The kitchen was well equipped. The welcome pack that was thoughtfully supplied was much appreciated on our arrival, meaning that we could have a piece of toast and a cup of tea before heading off to explore. The balcony was mostly in shade which gave us an outside space to retreat to out of the sun, for lunch or pre-dinner drinks. It overlooked the pool which was beautifully maintained and surrounded by beautiful gardens. The apartment had 2 sun beds but we never had a problem getting extras. The apartment is in a quiet location but a small supermarket and bar serving food all day are about 5 minutes walk away and the rest that Paphos has to offer just a bit further. We had a most enjoyable and relaxing holiday and I would highly recommend this apartment.

The apartment is well appointed, comfortable and has plenty of space, the view from the balcony overlooks the pool and garden areas. It is situated in a safe area and most people speak English. Local amenities are within walking distance of the town, sea front, harbour and ancient ruins. Paphos has plenty of eating establishments, catering for all tastes and ages from quiet restaurants to lively bars. Hire transport is readily available in the town and is worth taking advantage of just to go and see the terrific views and the varying coastline and beautiful beaches on offer. Zena and Topher from Diddlebury, Shropshire.

The journey from Paphos Airport to the apartment was quick and easy by taxi and the location made it convenient to reach shops and restaurants along the sea front and there is a food market nearby. My wife and I found the apartment spacious, well equipped and very well looked after. From the balcony, there is a delightful outlook onto a large swimming pool and garden area. Altogether we had a very pleasant restful holiday with sunshine every day, as did some friends who we recommended you to. Ernie and Doris from Ludlow, Shropshire.

How could I forget that holiday in your apartment in Paphos? It was situated on a lovely medium sized complex, where a lot of the apartments appeared to be permanently occupied by their owners, which was reflected in the way the place was being maintained.Its location was ideal. Within easy walking distance of downtown Paphos with its shops, banks, restaurants and the harbour. What food we needed for meals other than those we ate out, was available from local shops within minutes walk of the apartment. It is certainly a place I would like to revisit. The selection of restaurants serving up delicious meals was very good. There wasn't one that we tried that we wouldn't go back to on our next visit.
