We absolutely love this apartment, the feedback from guests is often amazing with lots of guests returning. The name Andros comes from the Greek word Strong / Manly, not sure how that is relevant to the apartment but it is just a fun fact. 🙂
For a self-catering apartment, it really does have a lot to offer. The things that stand out to us is how many extras the owner has added to make it easy for guests. Things like folding sunbeds for the beach and pool toys for kids, books and of course wifi!
The cute balcony area is really sweet, with a bench area, pergola for shade and dining area which folds up if you want to pop them away. The sunsets from the balcony are a really nice way to wind down the day. Another hit for us is that the apartment has both the option of air conditioning/heating or ceiling fans in the living room and bedrooms.
You have all the essentials you would need in the kitchen including an oven, microwave and dishwasher. There is a supermarket only 1.3km down the road called “metro” as well as a 24hour bakery so getting groceries is really convenient. As with all of our properties, there is a washing machine, clothes drying rack, ironing board and iron for laundry.
Now let’s talk space, there is lots of wardrobe space in the bedrooms, so packing light or packing the kitchen sink is entirely up to you. For families, there is also an additional two sofa beds in the living room.
The complex itself has two baby pools, two main pools, tennis courts (yes there are rackets and balls for you to use in the apartment) and a gym. These are free for you to use and there are swipe cards in the apartment for access.
Let me tell you about the area and why you will need a car hire to get the most out of your holiday. The apartment is in a great location to get you to Ayia Napa, Kapparis, Paralimni and Protaras but bus schedules are not overly reliable or frequent and walking is usually quite a task – especially in the heat, cue why we suggest car hire! The good news is the apartment has a free allocated car parking space that is covered. If you want a change from the pool, the beach (Firemans bay) is a 5-minute drive away / 2.4km and that’s in the area of Kapparis which has great restaurants and bars. This is just one of many amazing beaches within 15 minutes from the apartment, to name a few Vrysoudian, Ayia Trias, Marlita, Fig Tree Bay, Kalamies & Pernera beach are all great family beaches. For restaurants and bars, you can pop into Paralimni which is 5 minutes away and has a lot of traditional, local places to try out and bonbon crepes if you have a sweet tooth. 😉 Or venture into Pernera, Kapparis, Protaras or Ayia Napa. You have the option of Larnaca or Paphos airport, Larnaca is closer (61km / 45minutes drive) but Paphos is 175km / 2hour drive.
All in all this apartment is great for families or couples and has everything you will need to make great memories.
