If we were looking for a holiday apartment in Pernera, this would definitely be a contender in our eyes simply due to the location. Lets dig in to that first as it really is key to this beautiful apartment. From Larnaca airport you are about 63km / 40 minute drive and taxis are between 55euros and 85euros each way depending on the time of day and number of guests. The apartment is in central Pernera, you can walk in to the bars, shops and restaurants in 2 minutes (its 160m) which is fantastic if you want something walk-able at night time. There are also bus routes in the area which are a little more frequent but we do always suggest hiring a car to make the most of your trip and there is a parking space at the apartment. The closest beach is Golden Coast (aka Kalamies) which is a beautiful sandy beach which is 800m away / 10 minute walk, but just bare in mind everything feels longer in the heat, hence why we suggest a car. Being self catering you can always grab groceries to eat in but we love having the option to dine out as well, so that’s a big plus for us.
Camelot has some amazing features to offer families and couples. Firstly it is top floor so always a benefit not to have anyone on top of you from a noise perspective and it has a shaded balcony overlooking the pool with sofa area, we could definitely enjoy a glass of wine there! Bonus points for the fact that the communal overflow pool, it is a great size (8x4meters and up to 1.4m depth) gated and only shared between a total of 10 apartments!
Inside the apartment is a good size and offers a lot of great facilities we would be looking for such as, dishwasher, washing machine, cooking facilities, 2 balconies, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, extra sofa beds for guests and just a good overall size. The water system is pressurized (if you have ever showered without pressure its not fun haha).
One more feature we really like is that there are beach items available – a cool box, beach mats, beach umbrella, folding sunbeds and beach towels.
A couple of things to note. With every centrally located property you do have the downside of noise at times and we like to be honest with our guests. Pernera is generally quiet but in the past we have had some complaints towards one local place that has caused some issues later into the night sometimes sporadically and sometimes on an event. The apartment has a sensible usage policy for the air conditioning. (There is a meter in the hall way that you can check to see how much you are using) and if you did run out on the rare occasion then you can top it up.
