Limnaria Gardens 2 Bed Apt
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
A luxury ground floor, pool and south facing, 2 bedroom 2 bath/shower room apartment with a large private terrace leading directly to the pools and gardens of the Limnaria Gardens complex.
Having a Southerly aspect the sun shines on our apartment from mid morning through to late evening when it is one of the last apartments to lose the sun as it sets over the complex.
The location of the apartment couldn't be better, around 300m from the beach and close to the Kato Paphos tourist area (opposite the Alexander the Great hotel) with just a short walk to the restaurants and bars but far enough away to not be affected by the noise and hub bub of the resort.
We are also close to the beach coastal path in front of the Alexander the Great hotel, which in one direction leads past all the major beach front hotels and in the other direction leads down to the Port and harbour (about 10/15 minutes walk).
Our apartment is fully air-conditioned with access to the private terrace from both the master bedroom and the lounge. The terrace has both a covered and uncovered area and with a retractable sun awning so is ideal for sunbathing or sitting in the shade.
Our private terrace has a 6 seater glass topped dining table and chairs, a rattan coffee table and 4 chairs, 4 sunbeds and 2 sun rocking chairs.
There is ample parking at the complex for parking if hiring a car.

The Paphos region
Paphos is on the South West Coast of Cyprus benefiting from around 340 days of sunshine a year. It has it's own airport which is only short distance away so you can be in your apartment within 30 minutes of collecting your baggage off the conveyor belt.
Local interests include:
The Tomb of the Kings which date back to the 4th century BC. Carved out of solid rock they were the burial ground for high-ranking officials rather than Kings but their magnificance gave the locality its name.
The Paphos Odeon, a small 2nd century Odeon built entirely of well-hewn limestone blocks, it is now used in the summer for musical and theatrical performances. Nearby are the remains of the ancient city walls, the Roman Agora and a building dedicated to Asklipeios, god of medicine.
The Mosaics of Paphos, mosaics on the floors of noblemen's villas (House of Dionysos, House of Theseus and House of Aion), dating from the 3rd to the 5th century AD are considered among the finest in the Eastern Mediterranean, mainly depicting scenes from Greek mythology.
Kato Paphos is the main tourist area of Paphos with a little harbour where open air fish restaurants line a quayside of bright fishing boats and pleasure craft.
Paphos became the capital of Cyprus under the successors of Alexander the Great - the Ptolemies and in those days its harbour was a busy, thriving port. It continued as the island's first city for more than seven centuries, retaining its importance under Roman rule Its most famous Governor Sergius Paulus, was converted to Christianity by St Paul in 45 AD.
It still has the The Pafos Medieval Fort which was built by Ahmed Pasha in 1592 A. D. However, it is a reconstruction on the ruins of a formerly existing Frankish fort, sections of which were encompassed in the new building. There is an evidence of the Frankish fort being blown up and destroyed by the Venetians during the Ottoman raids as they were unable to face the invasion.
Some historians and annalists claim that the fort dates even further back to the Byzantine period. History and the isolated geographical position of Pafos was the reason for constructing of a fort right beneath the harbor.
Limnaria Gardens is situated over the road from the Alexander The Great Beach Hotel (behind the Limnaria shopping complex) and is a new complex of privately owned apartments and villas built by Leptos, the leading property developers in Cyprus. The complex comprises of a large free-form walk-in pool, jacuzzi and children's pool set in beautiful tropical gardens. The nearest supermarkets, shops, bars, restaurants, car hire and estate agents are less than 200m walk down the road at the Limnaria shopping complex where you can enjoy anything from a full English breakfast at Monty's to a nice cold refreshing beer at the White Hart pub whilst watching the Sky Sports on the big screen. To the left of the Limnaria complex is the municipal beach (next to the Alexander the Great Beach Hotel) and to the right is the main tourist area of Kato Paphos. The walk down to the main tourist area, including bar street is around 5 minutes, taking you past some fine restaurants and souvenir shops (most of which offer exchange facilities with commission free rates better than the local banks or the UK). The harbor area, with the Paphos Odeon and Fort is a further 10 minutes walk and is right next to the entrance for the Mosaics with plenty of bars and restaurants to take a rest after taking in the sights.
As our apartment is a self-catering one of the key places to be aware of is Papantoniou's supermarket (www.papantoniou.com.cy/htmlsite/stores.asp?step=2&itemid=303) in the tourist area, this is the largest (and cheapest) supermarket in Kato Paphos (around the size of a typical Tesco) with two floors of goodies. The food and drink are on the ground floor (along with a cafeteria) with household items on the second floor. A little further down the road on the opposite side is Debenhams if you want to do some clothes shopping.

What a amazing stay such a beautiful property our grandchildren and my son and daughter in law loved it pool just in front of you everything you need can not fault it at all.
Close to all amenities couple of minutes down the road to the bars and restaurants.only a nice 10 minute walk to the harbour.
I have stayed twice before in the owners 1 bedroom apartment that was also a lovely apartment.
The only thing missing was no wi-f/iinternet access but that wasn't really a problem.
Many thanks for your feedback, I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment.
I have taken on board your comment about WiFi and have had WiFi fitted in both of our apartments.

"The best apartment in a great complex"
We stayed for 3 weeks as we were getting married me my now wife and 3 boys (10,8 and 4) had a great time in this modern and spacious apartment . The two rooms were large with one En Suite as well as there being another shower and toilet room. Cleaners came once a week with new towels and bedding and where very friendly. The patio was very large with sun loungers, dinner table and chairs, canopy and coffee table with chairs, 3 pools (1 kids) Only a 5 min walk to local shops and 15 min walk to Harbour area . This 5 Star apartment was exactly what we needed to make our Wedding/Honeymoon a memorable occasion for us and the kids and would recommend this apartment to anyone who was thinking of going to Cyprus

"Perfect apartment. Perfect location"
This is our 7th visit to Limnaria Gardens in recent years. We stayed with two friends in this two bedroom two bathroom apartment for an early spring break.This is most definitely the best located apartment we have stayed within the complex. The large apartment is very tastefully decorated and well equipped. The huge south facing, fully equipped patio area, just afew steps away from the pool, is the perfect place to soak up the sun from sunrise to sunset.
The complex is well maintained and the both pools are spotlessly clean and complete with two large Jacuzzis. One pool is heated and there is a separate children's pool. The gardens around the pool area are also well maintained.
The booking process was both prompt and by secure payment for added peace of mind. All communication with the owners received a prompt response.
The location of Limnaria gardens is a just a 15min taxi ride from Paphos airport (25/30 euros) and a short walk to the nearby beach. The harbour is a comfortable 15 min stroll with it's restaurants and bars.
There are many taverna type restaurants close by offering outstanding value for money on a wide selection of dishes including the traditional Cypriot cuisine. We have sampled many of the restaurants during our stays and have never had a bad experience.
There are a lot of historical sites to visit in the local area including the mosaics by the harbour and the tomb of the Kings which are well worth a visit.
Just one word of caution, based on previous stays, if you have a late flight, arrange a late departure from your apartment or you may find that you have to keep your luggage with you as there is no reception or left luggage area within the complex. There are changing/shower facilities within the pool area.
We had a wonderful Spring break in Limnaria gardens and are looking forward to our next visit later in the year.

"A WINTER SUNSHINE BREAK"
We stayed at this complex in a 1x bed roomed apartment 3x years ago, owned by the same people that we rented a 2 x bed roomed apartment from this Jan. The reason being, that it is an ideal location in the complex, and on the ground floor with its own private patio area. The sun shone from 9.00am to 4.00pm each day, directly onto the patio. We were very lucky with the weather, just a couple of showers in the 19 x nights that we were there.
The apartment itself is spacious and well maintained, stocked with all the essentials and more besides. The sheets and towels were changed weekly, and an efficient washing machine is available for personal use.
We made great use of the Keg & Barrel pub, about a ten minute walk away, and the Ocean Basket restaurant if you like seafood, always busy with locals.
All in all, an excellent winter sunshine break, we would very much like to rent it again.

"Excellent Apartment - One of the best at Limnaria Gardens"
We stayed here for 6 weeks Feb/Mar this year and booked for 2014 before we came home. As someone said its better than what the tin says !. No real problems with the facilities whatsover. Booking seaml… More
Many thanks for your feedback, please accept my apologies for the stray newspaper and the mattress cover not being changed for your holiday in February 2013.
We do our best to ensure that our guests have the best possible experience during their stay with us and clearly on this occasion we fell somewhat short of the mark.
I've passed your comments onto our property manager and he has asked me to reiterate that he provides a 24 hour contact number for our guests to report any issues with the apartment as soon as they arise so that they can be resolved during their stay rather than let it spoil their holiday.
After all, we want you to remember the best parts of your holiday, not that you had an issue with our apartment!
He is aware that you are staying with us again for 6 weeks next year and is keen to ensure that there are no mishaps this time. Should you find that there is an issue then please contact me directly to resolve the matter.
