Greetings holiday seekers 2016!
We have a gorgeous very high spec large one bedroom apartment for rent. Ok. We'll be blunt now. It rocks! The flat is situated on a quiet residential street in a swanky block of 12 stunning apartments in Paphos.
The extra bonuses are the huge roof terrace which is the same size as the apartment and the private pool is a huge 40 FT!! It's only shared with the 12 other apartments in the block - (most of which will often be empty)
The Oakdale apartments are slightly inland, right on higher ground in pretty "Old Paphos" - THREE minutes walk from the museums, Town Hall and famous Markets and the famous MUSE Bar and FETTAS CORNER with it's breathtaking views. But don't worry - at 1km inland as you will find out - the views are incredible, restaurant prices cheaper and it's CLOSER to bar street, the harbour and everything than most of the main tourist hotels!!
Oh yes - and there's even a UK "Marks and Spencers" food hall down the road just a few minutes walk away!! Getting excited now? Fabulous hey! Percy pigs in Paphos!
There is everything you need or want here in Cyprus. Greek mythology, historical temples, skiing in the winter, amazing weather, beaches, bars and clubs galore, spas, diving, hiking, old villages, ancient ruins, day trips to Egypt and the beautiful holyland Israel (We don't recommend Syria for a while!). They even have UK plug sockets and drive on the same side of the road!! GREAT.

The main outdoor terrace as part of the apartment is one of the major attributes of the Oakdale apartment. It boasts the same size as the actual apartment! THIS is what makes this place special!!! GOk you're ready to book your flights now aren't you?! In fact people - it's fortunately the largest terrace out of the entire block!! CHA CHA CHA!The terrace is furnished with a SIX seater dining table, sun loungers and a range of beautiful plants such as palm and Bird of Paradise. There is an igrigation system designed to water the plants every day so you don't need to worry. Aswell as a range of outdoor candles ready for your use, there is outdoor lighting and pretty twinkling lights on one of the palms. A local beer or glass of Cypriot VINO, the orange and pink sunset sky... AHHHHHHHHH.... Who could ask for anything more!!!?There are also the most AMAZING Greek Tavernas three minutes up the road "EXO VRISI". The owners are really sweet, they serve great great food and are much cheaper than the touristy places!! -----------------------------The private pool as part of the Oakdale apartments is a huge 40 FT!!It is only shared with the 12 other apartments in the block - most of which will be empty. Some pools this size have over 200 apartments sharing it with 32 screaming snotty nosed kids. WE DON'T! Relaaaaaaxation!Starting at 3ft and gently dipping down to 5ft our pool is a perfect way to cool off in the strong Cyprus sun. It's practically a bath in the summer it's so warm and relaxing. Stavros the pool man even comes and tops the water up with fresh cool water every few weeks. What fun!Most people who have visited Oakdale so far have had the pool 24/7 to themselves. Chairs and sunlounges are provided of course.The mystical looking tree looking proudly over the pool gives SOME shade during the day. PLEASE NOTE.. Due to the location of Oakdale (on purpose of course) The pool and terrace has sun ALL DAY from dawn till dusk. Although this is great and gives amazing sunsets.. (SUNCREAM PLEASE!)Please note there is no baywatch life guard on duty and no diving or heavy petty allowed (oh ok then you can)
30 Euros are to be left by all occupancy for Jane our lovely cleaner VIP.
CYPRUS is the third largest Mediterranean island and one of the most popular tourist destinations, attracting over 3 milion tourists per year.
As it's lower than Spain and Portugal (just above Egypt) the weather is hot and warm ALL year round. Temperatures range from 16 to a scorching 40 degrees or more!!
Of course they have a colder climate in the winter (when Cyprus has impressive ski slopes in the Troodos Mountains) - but when it's minus 4 at home, Paphos is a UK spring like 16 degrees and sunny. Put it this
way - it rained three days last year people!! Where else can you ski in the Morning and sunbathe in the afternoon?
PAPHOS is known as the "Playground of Aphrodite" and the "Aphrodite's Rock", birthplace of the goddess - some 16 miles east of the town. Legend says that if one swims around the rock three times, at
midnight, with a fool moon, you will be young and eternally beautiful!
There is everything to do in Paphos - a waterpark, all watersports, diving, hiking in Troodos Mountains, Bar Street (a collection of streets featuring dozens of lovely bars and restaurants), karting, tours to
other cities, boat trips. crazy water sports, quad biking, day trips to Cairo and the Pyramids and other countries too.
From mythological Greek culture to screaming Karaoke in a tacky bar - you name it, Paphos has it! (it's also quite cilvised don't you know!)
THERE IS EVERYTHING YOU'D WANT HERE!!!
