''Fabulous apartment, met all our needs and more. Sounds very sad I know but so nice to have somewhere that provides clean fluffy towels, clean immaculate bed linen and faultlessly spotless makes a great start to any holiday! The layout ideal for family of four, including great outdoor space. Perfect apartment location as at pool side, but large enough patio area that you can stay on your own property without having to try and bag a lounger, we only ever had one or two families at poolside at any one point in time, very quiet place, although those we did meet were very friendly and welcoming. The air con was brilliant, wifi connection was great, as well as speakers in both lounge and bedroom for iPhone connection which was very handy, could sit on our own patio with our own music. We took our own DVDs, however a substantial library of films available in apartment, which was great for the very hot afternoons with young kids who refuse to sleep in the day!
Great location, right on top of tomb of kings, ten min walk up the hill to local market, five min walk to local bus service that takes to anywhere!
There a fabulously friendly restaurant called Karlinas only five min walk away, both ourselves and the kids loved the food the staff and the happy friendly atmosphere. Coral bay beach was a quick bus or taxi journey away, it was well equipped with umbrellas and loungers (about €7 for day), cafe, showers etc. We hired a car for two days, took a trip up mountains to Troodos square and further over to Kykkos Monastery which were both well worth the effort. Staying local to apartment both Tomb of Kings and Mosaics World Heritage sites (in Harbour) are absolute must do days out!
We were well informed of all requirements by the agent, payments etc and felt no question would go unanswered, always warm friendly response to our requests/enquiries. Locally, John was warm and friendly without being overbearing, very approachable helpful and his number is on a fridge magnet which is a great idea! He made himself known on day one, to check we were ok then left us to get in with our holiday being very clear we could call him anytime for anything. Seen him around apartments on a couple of occasions and he was always ready with a wave and a smile. Local taxi was booked via yourselves for airport pick up and return, these were both on time, good prices and clean friendly taxis and drivers.
Nothing to suggest to improve, we had a fabulous time and enjoyed our two weeks immensely. The only thing we hadn't realised, that you may bring to first timers attention is the use of UK plugs? A small point I know but saves people taking adapters unnecessarily as we did! We knew they drive on the left as in UK but didn't know about three pin plugs!''

"Very clean modern and well equipped. Few minutes walk to the bus stop which takes you to coral bay and the harbour. Easily walkable to the main restaurants and bars! We enjoyed the tomb of the kings, there is no shade here so cover up!! We also thought Karlinas restaurant was extremely good, very friendly and great food. Excellent service from LetsRentOnline, thank you for all the help. John was great even allowing us to check out later as we had a night flight. It was all great..''
The Paphos region
Paphos combines ancient history with a cosmopolitan, modern tourist resort. The area by the coast is known as Kato Paphos and boasts a pretty little harbour and plenty of open air cafes and bars. Further inland is the aforementioned old town of Paphos, known by the locals as Ktima. With its narrow streets, hustle and bustle, covered market and typically Cypriot atmosphere, it is well worth a visit. As a consequence, Paphos is on UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage list.
Cyprus is famous as the birth place of the goddess Aphrodite, Venus in Roman mythology. She is known as the Ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty. Legend says that she emerged from the sea at Aphrodite’s Rock in a surge of sea foam.
This ideally situated holiday apartment is set in an enviable position , just off one of the main thoroughfares in Kato Paphos. It is within easy walking distance of the essential amenities at Tomb of The Kings Road and the seafront, as well as being only a 10 minute walk to the famous 'Old Town' of Paphos where you will find the municipal markets as well as a large selection of shops, cafes restaurants and other points of interest. There is a small Taverna/Bar called Apanemo just outside the development where you will receive a warm welcome from the owner. Popular restaurants like Olivetos, Fat Mamas, Artio Brasserrie, Youkoso and many more are within short walking distance.
Things to do in the area include Paphos Bird Park, reptile park, horse riding, Akamas Peninsular & Lara Nature Reserve, hiking/walking, buggy safaris, 4 x 4 safaris, sea caves area, sailing and many more. Amusement and water parks in Paphos are also easily accessible from Coral Bay as are numerous archaeological ruins such as the Tombs of the Kings.
