Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated. We are glad you had a good time when you visited and getting a 10 out of 10 makes us think we must be doing the right thing! We are always happy to give a bit of insider info to make your stay a bit better. We have eaten at a lot of local restaurants and have our favourites where we know we will always get a decent meal at a good value price. Looking forward to seeing you both the next time you choose to visit Cyprus.

“Peace/Tranquility/Wonderful hosts in the Hills of Cyprus”
Reviewed 27 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have vacationed at this site three times now after stumbling upon it while searching online. It is a true find! The property is in the small town of Vavla. The property consists of two apartments for rent. A full kitchen is available for your use. It is a very economical way to spend a truly relaxing vacation. There is a pool, a bicycle to borrow, a chicken coop for fresh eggs, fruit and nut trees, and tranquility.
The apartments are decorated well and have many nice design touches. The hosts know when to hold back and when to offer guidance. Within a one hour drive are beaches, hiking, and many historic sites. There is a supermarket for provisons about 30 minutes away.
I feel relaxed and rejuvenated after each visit. We will keep coming back.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated. We are glad you found us online as we always enjoy your company when you visit. Like you, most visitors enjoy the peace and quiet so that personal batteries are recharged and renewed.

You are one of the few people that have taken advantage of the bikes - but maybe when the temperature is in the 30s it is understandable they are not used so much. But we will keep the tyres pumped and ready for when you choose to return once more. Thanks again for coming to visit.

“Best kept secret in Cyprus.”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Set in the beautiful Cypriot countryside this truly is a little piece of paradise - tranquil and breathtaking. That said, there are numerous places of interest, restaurants and a supermarket all within an easy drive. The apartments are spotless, very well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. We have recently returned after our third stay and have already booked for next year. We can only thank Shane and Neal for another fantastic holiday and for being such great hosts. Our recommendations... 1) Do as much or as little as you feel like - there are plenty of places on the island to visit. 2) Come again like the many guests who return year after year.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated. We always feel like we have managed to get things right when people come back for a second (or 3rd or 4th...) visit. So thanks to you both for letting us help you to enjoy a little bit of Cypriot paradise.

As you said you can get out and about to see what Cyprus has to offer because nowhere is too far in Cyprus or laze around reading a book or soaking up the sun - the choice is yours. Maybe the best option is do a bit of sightseeing and then return to the peace and quiet of Vavla ready for a hard session of lazing in the hammock.

Looking forward to seeing you both again next year...

“Welcoming, wonderfully peacful, relaxing and hospitable holiday. Idylic!”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Not really sure we want to share this with people because we want to keep it as our secret destination. It is absolutely in beautiful surroundings of olive and fruit trees, the accommodation is lovely and the we couldn't ask for more wonderful hosts!!

We have made three visits to Vavla now and will return again for sure. It's Great place to unwind and relax. Not too far from the main road for visits to sites and beaches - who needs them with the pool!

We couldn't ask for more from our hosts Shane and Neal, nothing was too much trouble and we can truly say it feels like home from home only without the hassle.

Thanks for talking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated. We are glad you feel able to unwind and relax when you get here. I think this seems to be a recurring theme from lots of our visitors... after the busyness of everyday life it is good to step down a gear and take time out.

We always enjoy your company when you visit and look forward to seeing you again in Cyprus soon.

“Peaceful Paradise (with cats)”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Valve is so peaceful & relaxing you just sit back, watch the swallows flying overhead, and the occasional brightly coloured bee eater, have a glass of something, stroke a friendly cat, and chill out. In the evenings you may hear the nuns in the monastery down the road singing too, this may not sound like your cup of tea but trust me it is very atmospheric. We normally stay in the studio apartment, with a lovely view over the pool and the surrounding countryside, and just love the place. Shane & Neal are very helpful and will assist or advise you with anything you need, even down to helping with shopping if they are going to the shops, although there is a good (if slightly expensive) supermarket at Skarinou down the road, plus a butcher, bakery, petrol station, and small grocery at Choirokitea. For a large shop on arrival I'd recommend one of the supermarkets in Larnaca or Limassol though.

If you are a first time visitor to Cyprus there are a few places we'd recommend visiting, especially if you like seeing the history of a place - Curium (now called Kurion) with its rebuilt amphitheatre, temple and mosaics; Kollossi Castle, a place maybe visited by crusaders, and maybe even Richard the Lionheart; the House of Dionysius & Byzantine Castle at Paphos, near the Fort at the harbour; the Tomb of the Kings at Paphos; then up the mountains there is Troodos, and if you are up for a drive the tomb of Archbishop Makarios at Kykko monastery, then over the hill to Kakopetria, where there is an old mill and a beautifully renovated old part of the village (it may take a little effort to find it but it's is lovely). Finally if you are venturing over the border Northern Nicosia is worth a wander round, and further afield there is St Hilarion castle, off the western road to Kyrenia. I first saw it on a postcard many years ago and it took me nearly 30 years to get there but it was worth the visit.
There is a good beach at Curium, below the amphitheatre, which is fairly shallow for some distance, so good for kids, or further afield Coral Bay west of Paphos. As for eating out most small tavernas are worth a visit, especially if filled with locals. Try stifado (beef stew with whole small onions in a tomato sauce with cinnamon & cloves), or even better a meze which consists of a number of small taster dishes, that way you get to try everything and find out what you like for future reference.
Whatever you do I'm sure you'll love Vavla and the island, just don't come back too often, leave room for us to come back, again and again.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - it is much appreciated. Watching the swallows circling round the pool is one of my favourite things to see as well.

You have produced a good list of sights to see... although it may be tempting to laze around, Cyprus has much to offer and it would be a shame to miss out on the chance to see some of the places you mentioned. No where is too far in Cyprus thanks to the motorway so a day out can mean you can cover a couple of places in one go.

Looking forward to seeing you out in Cyprus again soon.
