The best bits…
Cyprus is all about outdoor living and this bijoux bungalow apartment won’t disappoint. A raised veranda, comfortably furnished, looks out over the grassed garden area surrounded by trees. An ideal spot to for relaxing at the end of a busy day at the beach or pool. The veranda is gated and the garden area for your own personal use, there is also a lovely communal pool within the complex.
The open plan living space is accessed from a private entrance to the front and at the rear opens up onto the gated veranda. Fully air-conditioned, the space has been stylished furnished in neutral contemporary shades. A comfortable sofa can be transformed into additional sleeping space for two further guests. There is a flat screen TV, free Wifi and the windows have sun blinds to keep it cool during the day. A kitchenette is fully equipped for a self-catering break and divided from the main living space by an attractive breakfast bar with elegant high chairs.
The bedroom is also air-conditioned and features a comfortable double bed and storage space, a baby cot can be provided for tiny guests. The modern bathroom features a bath tub with overhead shower, basin, mirror and toilet.
This small complex of low-rise bungalows is largely residential, it is built around a lovely free form pool with sunbeds and parasols. The pool area is shaded by trees and you can lie in the water and see the sea.
Protaras Heights is located in the Profitis Elias (or Ayios Elias) area of Protaras which, takes its name from the tiny church perched up on the top of the hill. This area is highly desirable being set away from the bustle of the tourist area but with stunning views down to the sea and a gentle breeze even on the hottest days. It is a largely residential area so perfect for a relaxing break whilst still within easy reach of Protaras’ famous beaches and the main tourist area with its restaurants, cafes and bars. A ten-minute walk will bring you to the gorgeous Fig Tree Bay which incidentally was recently voted top beach in Europe.
The main sea front road is around a 5-minute walk downhill from the apartment and buses into Paralimni town, Protaras and Ayia Napa run along the main road. At the end of a hot day at the beach if you don’t feel like walking the 5 minutes back up the hill, taxis can be hailed along the main road and will charge just a few Euros to deliver you to your door!

The living space is comfortable and fresh, decorated in neutrals and cool white shades. A contemporary sofa can be transformed into a bed, there is a comfortable chair and occasional tables as well. The living space also features a flat-screen TV, DVD player and the all-important free Wifi. French doors provide lots of light when you need it and open out onto the gated balcony and garden. There are exterior shutters and an internal blind to keep things cool too and the windows are double-glazed.
The breakfast bar divides the living space from the galley kitchen, there are two attractive high-stools for indoor dining or simply keeping the cook company. The kitchen has been carefully thought out and includes all the essentials for a self-catering break with an electric hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine, iron, toaster and kettle
The veranda not only has lovely views over the garden and countryside but it is also the perfect spot for al-fresco dining. Although there are stools inside, in the Cyprus climate you want to make the most of the beautiful outdoors! There is a table with comfortable chairs and another set of furniture that can be placed down on the lawn.

The local host Dee will meet you when you arrive, she lives in the complex so will be on hand if you need anything during your stay
A word to the wise…choose the right home for you
We think the hill top location of Protaras Heights makes it very special, but if you do have limited mobility you might find the walk down to (and back up from!) the main road a bit tricky. In this case we would suggest a rental car, there is a parking space for you in the complex.
Likewise, bear in mind that this bungalow apartment is on the ground floor but there are two steps at the front door and 3 steps down from the veranda to the garden.
There is a sofa bed in the living area which can sleep two people, whilst this home can accommodate a maximum of 4 adults we would suggest it better suited for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children if you are staying more than a few days.
- We want to greet all our guests personally, so either we or a local host will meet you at the home when you arrive and show you how everything works. Check in time is 15:00 and Check out 10:30, we try to be flexible though so if you would like to check in early or check out late, let us know and we’ll see what we can do. Unfortunately we cannot accept check in after midnight or before 09:00. Once you’ve booked we’ll send over some more detailed information and an arrival pack to help you plan your trip. The price of your stay includes high quality bed linen and towels for two people and cleaning prior to arrival. If you would like extra linen or cleaning during your stay we can take care of this for you, but there will be an additional charge. Your local host can organise this. If you wish to use the sofa bed provided, please tell us when you book. There is an additional charge of Euro 30 for sofa bed linen and extra towels We have also calculated “normal” use of electricity, including the air-conditioning at Euro 10 per day. Electricity in Cyprus is rather expensive so we ask our guests not to leave the a/c on when they are outside the apartment. We will read the electricity meter when you arrive and again when you leave and if you have used more than the allocated amount we will need to charge you for this.

Hi, I am originally from Limassol although I studied in the UK, Spain and Belgium. I love to travel and the Greek islands are probably top of my list for a summer getaway but I enjoy city breaks as well. Meeting new people is one of my favourite things so it's great to welcome guests here to Cyprus and share my beautiful island with them. My other passions are my two gorgeous rescue dogs, chocolate (pretty high on the list!), baking and spending time with friends and family. I'm also addicted to US and UK series so my perfect evening would be cuddling up on the sofa with my dogs, a huge jar of nutella and a box set- heaven!
I look after a few homes for friends and they are all hand-picked to offer an authentic Cyprus experience, whether it be a stylish space on the beach or a traditional village house. I am also a bit of a neat freak so whether I am hosting or staying in a place you can be sure it will be sparkling clean!
