"An amazing holiday home from home"
I don't know where to start, the service we received from Elaine and the team was first class. On booking Elaine gave us such great service before we departed we had information on places to visi… More

"Highly commend this lovely accomodation and surrounding area"
Having visited Cyprus many times we chose this apartment as it had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The apartment is on the hillside overlooking the village of Peyia and Coral Bay, with stunning views at sunset from any of the two balconies as the light fades and the village lights up. The apartment is a home from home with everything you could possibly need and is spotlessly clean. Furnishings are modern and comfortable and Elaine's attention to detail has to be commended.
Like others we arrived late at night and Dimi the property manager met us near the airport and led us to the apartment to show us how everything worked. However the directions Elaine gave us were spot on and we would easily find it from these in the future. Elaine is very well organised and provided comprehensive instructions about the apartment facilities via email before we travelled. These also included recommendations for local eateries and places to visit which Elaine says she likes to check out herself and update each time she visits her apartment. We would particularly recommend La Vigna, an Italian restaurant at the top of Coral Bay strip and Oniro, a café/bar down beside the Seacaves and the old ship wreck at Coral Bay.
The welcome pack had enough provisions to keep us going for a couple of days but there is an excellent supermarket in the village. Whilst the village has all the amenities you would require for a relaxing holiday, we hired a car from the aiport for the two weeks of our stay which is necessary if you wish to explore out with the village. The weather was exceptionally hot when we were there and as a result we stayed around the apartment the odd day or night. The pool was lovely and very quiet and with an excellent selection of books and films, an iPod dock and speakers and a couple of really good takaways in the village that deliver, this just confirmed to us we had made an excellent choice of accommodation and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
We will certainly return again!
Thank you very much for your fantastic review, I try to make the apartment somewhere people can come to relax on holiday as holidays are so important, and I'm glad to hear that you will return.

"The Perfect Holiday Appartment"
We have visited Cyprus on several occasions and having stayed in other apartments in the Peyia area we can honestly say that this apartment is by far the best. The owner Elaine obiviously takes great pride in the presentation of the property, the modern decor is complimented by the stunning views across to Coral Bay from both balconys. Everything you could possibly need is supplied in the apartment and the attention to detail is commendable. The welcome pack was much appreciated as we arrived late in the evening. As the location is in the upper part of Peyia we would recommend a hire car. Overall a very enjoyable stay with great communication from Elaine and her agent Dimi in Cyprus, we can recommend this apartment without any hesitation!
Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I like to offer guests what I expect on holiday to help them enjoy their break away.

"Wonderful stress free break in Peyia Cyprus"
Elaine planning and organisation was exceptional from start of the booking to the finish, apartment has everything you need for your stay, the apartment offers fantastic views comfortable external seating and dining tables watching a fantastic sunset every day. Something we don't get to appreciate in the UK. The tavernas and bars in Peyia offer you good food and Cyprus hospitality everything you would want. If you hire a car the surrounding area has many cultural historical places well worth a visit and the mountains offer a great escape from the many hot days experienced. Thanks D'Arcy October '2012
Thank you so much for your great review. I'm really glad you enjoyed your holiday, it means a great deal to me.

"Lovely apartment with wonderful views"
We (with my husband) spent in apartment excellent two weeks of our holiday on Cyprus. We were really very satisfied with equipment, the apartment is very spacious. The kitchen is good equipped and enough, maybe some more crockery could help, but it was O.K. We appreciated very much two terraces and also we enjoyed our evenings on balcony with wonderful views on the see in the distance. In conclusion we were really very satisfied, we would like to visit this apartment again and I can truly recommend this apartment for everybody who is looking for nice and comfortable accommodation. The owner is really very organised and very nice lady.
Thank you very much for your great comments, I really appreciate it. I take on board the request for more crockery and will rectify this as soon as possible.

"Great Peyia apartment"
We considered a few apartments in Peyia, but then stumbled upon this one, and the booking process was swift and very well organised. We were taking this holiday at fairly short notice, but we received confirmation and all necessary information in good time. Before travelling, we received comprehensive instructions about the apartment and its facilities, and also details of bars and restaurants in Peyia and surrounding areas.
The apartment had everything you could possibly need, even down to cooler bags for taking lunch/water out with you (very necessary in the heat while we were there this past couple of weeks). There is a TV, but not many channels available in English, apart from the BBC World News, but a DVD player is provided, with a good choice of films. Also a good choice of books to read. And plenty of information and maps to help you plan your trips and eating out. There is even an iPod/MP3 dock and speakers.
We were met by the property manager at a pre-arranged location and followed him to the apartment, where we were shown how to operate certain items of equipment, before being left to enjoy our stay. We also had a welcome pack provided, which was free as we had booked two weeks. Bed linen and towels were changed half way through the stay.
The only downside, in my opinion, was that the apartment was next to the road, and although not constant, it was noticeable, especially when the Cypriot boy-racers chased up the hill. Mind you, we did spend most of the time out and about, so it wasn't a huge problem. Oh, and wi-fi would have been good, but we managed without, and didn't suffer too much! A couple of the bars in Peyia have free wi-fi so we managed to check emails (and whether we'd won the Lottery!) on a few occasions throughout the holiday, but it was quite nice being incommunicado for a while.
And the hill!! It is quite a climb from the town to the apartments, so you need to be quite fit. We did the walk-down-and-back-up a couple of times, then resorted to the car!!
Thank you for taking the time to review my apartment. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, I try to ensure the apartment has everything you need.

"Great appartment in Peyia"
This is the second time we have stayed in Elaine's lovely appartment in Peyia which is recommendation in itself. The appartment is spacious and very tasteful with two wonderful balconies with spectacular views to the coast. The appartment complex has been quiet on both our trips in May 2012 and June 2011 and is ideal for a relaxing holiday. Equally however we have found it an ecxcellent base for getting out and about and experiencing all Cyprus has to offer. We usually have had the pool to ourselves, but in May it was a bit bracing!
Elaine provides some really good recommendations for days out and also local resturants which are great and really good value, particularly so in the village. There really in an excellent choice of resturants the only issue you will have is deciding which one to sample on a given night.
If you are looking for an appartment holday in this part of Cyprus I would thoroughly recommend Elaine's appartment.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your holiday and the apartment. Thanks for the great review.

"You won't be disappointed here"
We stayed at this apartment over Easter and were very pleased with every aspect of our vacation at Christiana Hilltop Apartments. I sent a booking request late one night and it had been confirmed, paid for and a contract e mailed the next day! Elaine is extremely organised the whole booking process gave me confidence that our stay in her apartment would be trouble free and so it transpired. Arrangements were made for Demi the property manager to meet us just outside Paphos to guide us up to the apartment, give us the keys and explain how everything worked he said we could contact him day or night and best of all left a great bottle of red wine in the grocery pack!
I cannot think of a single thing we needed which was not in the apartment it was very well equipped even with picnic sets and cool bag, hair straightners, some good new DVD's and games. Elaine e mailed some suggested day trips and recommendations for restaurants in the village which we did take up and enjoy.
You must have a car here but will be rewarded by being away from the crowds and a feeling of belonging to the local community when eating/drinking in the village and with fantastic views from the 2 outside terraces. The terraces were the main reason I choose the apartment as they provided great out door space for a 1 bed property and both had very comfortable furniture. One word of caution with regard to the terraces is that they are quite overlooked not a problem for us as it was early in the season and other apartments not rented however it could be a factor in high season.
In summary it was obvious by the whole experience from start to finish that the owner wishes you to have an enjoyable vacation – Thanks Elaine we did and gladly recommend your home to others.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review, I really appreciate it and all your kind words.

"Fabulous Apartment, fabulous location, fabulous weather, fabulous holiday"
What can I say, what you see is what you get. Elaine is so organised that there is nothing she hasn't thought of to make the holiday just perfect. The apartment is well equiped and the decor fresh and bright and very clean. It is in an excellent location for touring around the island and the views from the balconies down to the sea are lovely. There are no shortage of resturants and bars for eating out as well as supermarkets if you prefer to eat in on Elaine's well appointed balconies which we did on a couple of occassions. The pool is only two minutes walk from the apartment and although we were there at the end of August during school holidays, several times we had the pool to ourselves. My teenage grandson even went swimming late into the evening as the pool is nicely floodlit. There are plenty of DVD's and books for quiet evenings in and lots of brochures showing places of interest to browse through. As it was hotter than even I had expected it to be, all I can say is thank goodness for the ceiling fans and air conditioning and the undercover parking. Finally having hired a car from the airport, Elaine arranged for Dimi from the management company to meet us on the outskirts of Paphos to lead us to the apartment, issue the keys and show us around the apartment. He was very helpful and even arranged the mid stay clean to fit in with our plans. We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and rest assured I will be returning as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for your great review of my apartment, I really appreciate you taking the time.
