Our unique house is tugged away in a forested valley overlooking a cool running stream.

Its modern design, liberated from the traditional building elements, allows uninterrupted views, abundance of light and a sense of connection between outdoor and indoor space at all times.

With the nearest house 200m away you have an absolute sense of privacy, yet only 10min walk to center of Platres village.

Use as a base to explore nature trails, local wineries, culture or just enjoy the silence!

ที่พัก

Location location location but not just that!

The house has its back side literally built again mountain rock and the other almost completely open to the views of the meadow, the sounds of the forest and the running water of the stream.

Its modern and minimal design built with high tech materials makes the space light and comfortable and allows uninterrupted views and a sense of connection with the outdoors at all times. This house will give you the feeling of awe as you suspend on top of the green canopy and you have a panoramic perspective of the nature and the forest. All your senses are activated once you arrive. You can see it, you can smell it, you can hear it and all in absolute privacy!

Only accessible though a nature foot path, the house and the surroundings are free of visual man made clutter and noise. The property sits on a 3000m2 plot of sloping forested area with its north side boarding a cool running stream. With the nearest other house being 200 m away, you can gaze over the green forest canopy and the blue skies with no other visual interruptions. There is an abundance of private outdoor space areas around the house and then the forest is an extension of that!

The fact that the house is used by the owners on a regular basis makes the house especially comfortable and well equipped with the personal touch of a space being lived and not just rented. We attend to most things personally and we ensure that our quests get the feeling of a home and all that comes with it.

Kids especially enjoy spending time here. They are actually our most satisfied quests! Hours of endless activities indoors or outdoors involving climbing, water games, collecting things, observing things, building things and the list goes on... look and find the tent and camp indoors or outdoors. Use the binoculars, the magnifying glass, read the books on birds you can spot, it is all there ready to discover!

The house is renovated with high tech materials allowing perfect insulation properties for both summer and winter making the indoor space especially comfortable all through the year. There is no need for air conditioning in the summer and the high efficiency wood stove and wall heaters make a cosy winter dwelling.

It is the ideal place to relax, visit the local wineries and taverns, walk or cycle the Troodos mountains and trails. This location provides you with endless activity possibilities by day trips in the surrounding area, both on foot or by car.

If activity is not your holiday theme this year, you can easily set yourself in the hammock in the shade with a book, or by the wood stove in the winter, cook a fine meal, bake a cake, watch a movie, play your favorite music or just simply enjoy the silence!

In the house you can find maps and quides to help you plan your holiday with ease.

KITCHEN:
The house consists of a fully equipped kitchen with a counter top dishwasher, washing machine, oven, hot water kettle and coffee maker. You can even find a cake and a pizza pan, making the kitchen ideal for quests who take cooking as seriously as we do! :) You can also find all the necessary equipment for an outdoor barbecue in the house. Please be extra careful with lighting a fire outdoors and follow the instructions you find in the house.
BATHROOM:
The bathroom is quite roomy and is equipped with a large size (0.90X1.20m) shower tray. You will find 2 clean towels of two sizes for each quest.
GROUND FLOOR BEDROOM:
The downstairs bedroom has a 1.40X2.00m double bed and can be set up with a baby cod and a high chair if requested.
LOFT BEDROOM:
The upstairs loft bedroom has two bunk beds 0.90X2.00m and one double pull out futon bed 1.40X2.00m. Please note that the access to this room is via a wooden stair/ladder that you see in the pictures. Kids 5years of age or younger may need to be accompanied by an adult when using this room.

-Fresh towels and all beddings will be set up for you at your arrival! If we misjudge your comfort preference, you can find buddings of different warmth indexes in the trunks of both bedrooms and please feel free to replace.

ผู้เข้าพักใช้อะไรได้บ้าง

The house is self contained, independent, with no shared facilities and very private.

Here you can experience what silence sounds like if you choose to! The only audible sounds are of the running stream, the birds and the sound of the wind brushing through the trees.

The house has been in the hosts family since the 1940s and was used as a summer home to escape the heat of the city in a pro air-conditioning era.

It has been renovated through the years but we try and keep as much as possible of its original features that are part of our memories and part of our growing up.

In the house you will find personal items suck as books, games, and a selective film and music collection. Please make yourself at home and feel free to explore....

การสื่อสารกับผู้เข้าพัก

Both myself and my partner live in Nicosia so we will probably not be present when you arrive but we are accessible at any time on our mobile phones or by email, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), messenger etc.

สิ่งอื่นที่ควรรู้

The house is accessible by a 100m long foot path. You will need to park your car on the main road and walk 2-3 min on foot (see posted pictures) until you reach the house. It is best if you plan your trip so that you arrive during day. If not, simply have with you a small flashlight, any smart phone app will do, to assist you down the path.

Even though the house gives you an absolute feeling of seclusion, it is only a 10 minute walk away from the center of Platres village, in which you can find a basic grocery store, bank and a good selection of cafes and restaurants.

If you plan to do most of your cooking in the house, you will be receiving with your booking a document with the location of bigger supermarket options with a wider selection of products that you can easily drive to on your way up or at any point during your stay.

During the winter season you will need to operate a wood burning stove. For those not familiar with that no worries! You will find explicit instructions to assist you in the 'house manual' that you will find in the house. There will be wood ready to use in the house at your arrival.

DURING THE MONTHS DECEMBER-FEBRUARY we kindly ask our quests to leave a 10euro cash donation for the use of wood at the house at their departure.

Please note that there is no cable TV connection in the house. There is of course a WIFI connection and also a media player loaded with carefully selected films and cartoons of our choice for all ages and tastes. You can bring your own selection on a USB and use the media player to play it as well.

TO ASSIST YOU WITH PACKING PLEASE NOTE:
-You will be provided with all necessary towels and beddings.
-There is a baby cod and a high chair available upon request.
-The kitchen is equipped with most of the basic condiments such as oil, sugar, coffee/tea, salt/pepper, a variety of spices etc. The water from the Kitchen sink is potable.
-There is a charger at the house with 4 USB ports for charging tablets and also universal charges for small appliances. (The plugs we use in Cyprus are the 3 prong UK type)
-In the house you will have access to plenty of books, periodicals, games, and a media player loaded with movies and music. You can use the media player to play your own USB files if you choose to do so.

This is a great little home secluded in the forest. Just down the hill there is a small stream that is great for kids to play in. Farther down stream there is a nice waterfall. A short drive away, or even by walking, you can visit an old Venetian bridge. This is a great location for kids and is a very relaxing place to stay. You must walk a short distance in order to reach the place.

We had an amazing time in Nina's mountain home. Everything was perfect, and even better than the photos promised. The location is stellar ... we felt like we were living in a treehouse for the weekend! ... and the home is beautifully designed, extremely comfortable, and well equipped. Everything we needed was there. We arrived to find a bottle of wine and delicious local fruits, including grapes, which we used to make a grape-pepper-rosemary sorbet (there is a robust rosemary bush just steps from the front door!). The privacy, soft breezes, sounds of the brook, and the smell of gorgeous pines make this a very special place indeed. And Nina is an excellent and warm communicator. Highly recommended!

This is a great little cabin surrounded by trees, a wonderful place to escape from the hustle and bustle of life. Amenities are close by (restaurants, small market, post office, bank) but the place feels private and further off in the woods than it really is. A dirt path leads from a somewhat busy road down to the house, and although the path was steeper than I thought it would be, we managed to get our baby stroller down with no problems. The house itself is very clean and comfortable and has everything you need. The big windows on the front of the house look across to a ridge covered with trees, and although there are no screens on the windows we kept them open all day to get the breeze and surprisingly few insects came inside. Our stay was on a busy summer holiday weekend, so there were a lot of people walking along the path to see the waterfall, but the path is far enough below the house that you can still maintain your privacy, which was very nice for us. I also loved the little bench and table outside -- a nice place to sit in the shade during a hot day or to watch the evening fall. Nina was an excellent host, communicating quickly via Airbnb messages and mobile text message. On our arrival she even left out for us a bottle of wine as well as some local produce (eggs, tomatoes, apples, grapes, etc.), which was really wonderful and thoughtful! A very generous gesture that was truly appreciated. Highly recommend this place and host.

We had a great stay at Nina's beautiful house in the mountains. It is a great location, quiet, tranquil, but still many things to do. A unique place for nature lovers. Nina is extremely nice and offers great information. We especially enjoyed the restaurant reconditions. Highly recommended!

what an amazing place!!! we arrived @ the house in the night time, all was completely dark. when we opened our eyes in the morning we were amazed. we were surrounded by green all around. The house itself is wonderful, has a modernist design, simple and stylish. we haven't met Nina and her family but the communication was great; helpful, affective, and even funny. when we sail 'ADIO' to Eva the cat and the house, we were sad. highly recommended !

The house and location are beyond amazing! It is a phenomenal feeling to wake up in the morning and the only things you hear are bird song, a running stream and the rustle of the leaves. An exceptional location! The house itself is lovely-minimalistic but including everything you need. The hosts are so thoughtful and they have equipped the house with everything you will need for your stay (& things you wouldn't even imagine you might need like needle & thread & spare buttons!). Eva, the house cat was a lovely addition and also brought her friend 'Adamos' (as we've called him) along with her to meet us. Nina was very responsive to messages and helpful from booking to check out. Although she was not there to meet us when we arrived she sent a very comprehensive guide to finding the house, getting in etc before we arrived and was available through phone or email throughout. I am 7 months pregnant and the trail down to the house was a bit hard going in my situation-make sure to include some decent shoes if you would like to hike down to the stream or the waterfalls as we only took flip-flops with us and these weren't appropriate! Cannot recommend this house, location & host enough-incredible!!

Это идеальное место для тех, кто ищет уединения, тишины, чистого прохладного горного воздуха. Дом находится рядом с горной речкой и лесной тропой ведущей к живописному водопаду. Нина очень предупредительный человек, она сообщила нам все подробности заранее за 10 дней до прибытия. Кондиционер в августе вам не понадобится- мы спали под одеялом! Мы планировали ездить в близлежащие деревушки, но в и итоге просто целыми днями сидели в шезлонге и любовались лесом и пением птиц.

I am an architect by profession. I do a lot of traveling myself and I find the idea of hosting fellow travelers during their search for new and exciting things a challenge and a pleasure.
