You are no more than 10-15 mins from the shops, bus stop, harbour and heritage sites. No need for a car if you wish to explore Paphos as there is plenty to see. We found walking round the Universal area where the villa is based, a very safe area and quiet both in the day and at night. Neighbours were also friendly towards us.
We found a good range of international cuisine around the harbour. The vilal provided a very good handbook of useful and essential information for our stay and was also well equipped.
This was the perfect place to stay, not far from Paphos harbour and lots of beautiful beaches, and close enough to enjoy a drive out through the mountains as well. There are plenty of good places to eat nearby - some excellent fresh fish in the many cafes at the harbour, and lots of great restaurants not far away. The house itself is clean, spacious, and has everything you need, and Kathleen is the perfect hostess, friendly and helpful, and responding really quickly to any queries.
As it was a bit late in the season I didn't use the pool, but it was still warm enough to enjoy breakfast outside in the sun every morning, and a glass or two of wine later in the day - even when the sun had gone down it was still nice to relax outside. I really didn't want to leave - after a week there I was very nicely relaxed into a more gentle pace of life! Definitely recommend - thanks so much Kath :)
Great location, no more than 10 minutes away from bars, restaurants and harbour area. Hera House was very spacious and comfortable with all the home comforts you need (and more). 2 large bedrooms family bathroom and downstairs wash room and spacious sunny terrace/balcony areas. Great pool area which was maintained to a very high standard and regularly cleaned. Cant wait ti definitely stay here again, 10/10

Just returned from a four week stay at Hera House,I have traveled to Cyprus many many times over the years but think this is possible the best holiday yet. Everything you need is at Hera House, great location and is one of the best positions for sun worshipers on this small well kept complex.The swimming pool is rarely busy lots of days only myself using it.Kath the owner is outstanding to communicate with even while I was out on holiday regular emails concerning my welfare that's a first. I can't speak highly enough about this Lady and her holiday home so much so l have booked next year's holiday their even before returning home.My daughter and her husband came to stay with me for a week and had a terrific time too.
I am currently sitting on the terrace,thinking about the fact we are leaving in 2 days..i feel like im home.we have eaten in the villa 5 days out of the current 8 days we have been here..which tells you there is everything you can possibly need to cook comfortably.There is a couple of mini markets a 10 minute walk away and if you learn the short cut,going straight down,cutting out all the main roads,you will get to the harbour in 20 minutes,with all the great restaurants scattered everywhere.Hera house beds are extremely comfortable and of good quality.The air con is very much aplreciated when going to bed,but only necessary for an hour and using the stand fans,is sufficient.Kath is very attentive with your enquiries and when looking back on emails,i believe we exchanged 45 emails.she will always make time for your enquiries.Lastly,i have noticed that unfortunently kath has no reviews of the villa being very appropriate for children.i have 2 children and they have had a wonderful time.My 5 year old is completely safe in the shallow end of the pool,as I watch her from the terrace..and yet the complex remains so tranquil and peaceful.i will not say anymore..i could be here all day!get booking!
