A deposit of £200 will be required to secure a reservation with the balance to be paid 8 weeks prior to the start of your holiday.
If the reservation is less than 8 weeks from the start of the holiday date, the full amount will be required,
Rentals of less than one week must be paid for on reservation.
Once full payment is received an Accommodation Voucher will be issued which you take with you to Cyprus in exchange for the keys. I have a Manager available to meet you at the Villa with the keys (24 hour service)
A Security Bond of £200 will be required, this should be paid at the same time as the deposit to secure the reservation - this Security Bond will be refunded within 7 days of your departure.
To allow for flights coming into Cyprus everyday of the week, rental periods can start and end on any day - there is no set changeover day.
The prices quoted are for a week long let, however I can quote for a 4 stay, 10 days, etc. Please note the cost for a 4 night stay is not the price stated per week divided by 7, if staying for 4 nights or more the villa has to be cleaned and laundered. Just ask me for a quote.
Long Lets (over 3 weeks) are available - just ask for a quotation. In the winter it is normally cheaper to rent in Cyprus than to pay your electricity bill for heating at home!!
Normally the Villa is available from 16.00 on the day of your arrival and ends at 12.00 noon on the day of your departure, however wherever possible we will try to accommodate late and early arrivals and departures so that you get the most from your time in Cyprus. Changeover days are felxible
The Famagusta region
This region of Cyprus enjoys an estimated 345 days of sunshine a year and is ideal for a holiday throughout the year. The best beaches on the island can be found in this region - Cape Greco, Nissi Beach, Fig Tree Bay and many more - many have been awarded the 'Blue Flag' which means they are great for families with small children as the beaches are fine white sand which gently shelves into the crystal clean waters of the Mediterranean. The sea is excellent for snorkelling and scuba diving and there are all kinds of water sports - some quite tame and others quite adventurous!! The Troodos mountains are a great place to visit in contrast to the beaches - here you will find pretty villages and the air temperature will be a little cooler - and of course in the Winter you can Ski You can also spend some time in Nicosia with its shops, boutiques and places of interest or visit a church or two.
The Protaras / Kapparis area
The villa is located in a quiet residential area in Kapparis, but still only a short walk away from everything. You will find local Bakers offering fresh bread 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - there are also other everyday products available from the supermarkets. There are many beautiful churches and a tiny church sits on the other local beach at Agia Triada. There are Two Water Parks in the area, a Zoo and Aquatic Centre. Places of interest include the Nature Reserve of Cape Greco, the 'Famagusta' viewpoint, museums and monastries. The resort towns of Protaras and Ayia Napa are a short car drive away, or by bus. Buses are cheap - approx. 1,20 Euros, children under 12 travel free of charge. Taxis are also readily available and affordable. The beautiful sandy bay of Fireman's Cove is 500m or Agia Triada is 1km . They are beautiful sheltered coves with crystal clear water - almost turquoise!! Kapparis has lots of tavernas, bars and restaurants and is along the coast from Pernera and Protaras which have even more night life.

Like: Quiet location, but everything is nearby (shops, beach, taverns). Better to take a car, cause the beach is 10-15 min walk, if travel with kids it can be not too comfortable to walk. The sea is great, the pool is very good.
Don't like: the grill was quite dirty, TV channels are mainly Arabian, no Internet access.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. As you say everything is close by at the property including a great beach - it is always more difficult with young children for any journey, but at least the beach was worth the walk - 500m. I am sorry about the grill and have already emailed my Management Team to ensure this is not overlooked again. Only by clients comments can I ensure everything is put right, etc. - thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Perfect apartment for a family holiday. Perfect for relaxing on Christmas or New Year, heating and a gas fireplace. Living room is spacious and can comfortably relax even 4 adults. Of all the windows with magnificent views of sea and Famagusta. Part of the spacious terrace has an awning, which is well protected from wind and rain. There is a gas grill. Opening windows are equipped with mosquito netting. Stationary air conditioners in each room. A spacious bathroom. Satellite TV. The nearest beach is about a kilometer, and to store a local area network (ORFANIDIS) 600 meters. Windows and balconies rooms are located on the north side, probably it is very comfortable in the extreme heat in summer. The closest to a range of pavement ends about 100 feet and more can be reached only on the side of the road. Necessary to have a car that for a very reasonable price you can rent by the owner of the apartment.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Penthouse B11 Santa Marina and took the time to write a review. Yes, the Penthouse has everything and as you say being able to hire a car inclusive of everything for €20 a day is an asset to see the rest of this beautiful area. Thank you once again for your comments.
