Great location
92% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Beautiful wooden bungalow with a stone fireplace, complementary to the exquisite nature it is located at. The bungalow is very well equipped with an outdoor barbeque, a full kitchen, and bathroom, a swing, and sunbeds. It is in five min walking distance to the sandy beach. It overlooks the sea on one side and the luscious green mountains on the other. Akanthou is a popular location for backpackers, bikers and nature lovers. We try our best to grow organic vegetables in the garden for you.

The space
Our place is unique in architecture as it contains British colonial era accents like the yellow stone fireplace, and it is unlike many other Cypriot buildings, made out of wood. The location makes it even more special as it is closely located to a virgin beach that has not been commercialized and is in its natural state, with beautiful rock formations.
There is an archeological site named Çiftlikdüzü in Akanthou, which proved the area to be the oldest inhabited location in Cyprus dating back to 8400BC (Neolithic age). Even in our garden we frequently come across with remainings from shipwrecks like old ceramic pieces. The location was later inhabited by Pergamon colonials who were tormented by the pirates often enough that they moved the Akanthou village to its current location which is invisible from the sea.
You can also visit a thousand-year-old church which includes an open-air museum named Cyprus Minia.

Where you’ll be

Tatlısu, Cyprus

The life around here is rather simplistic and is remotely located from the cities which gives it lots of privacy as the bungalow sits in a 5 acres land. It still gives you the comfort of everyday life amentities as it has a full bathroom, fridge, washing machine, tv, etc. making it an easier alternative to campers and caravan goers to enjoy the nature, privacy and quietness to relax and sleep well. The area is also very safe so we often leave windows or doors open.
Very quiet and peaceful. The bungalow is remote from the crowd and the city. It is located in a small village named Akanthou. The neighbors are silent and respectful of the nature. They usually like fishing in that area, so if you are a fan of fish, do not forget to bring your own equipment! It is also lovely to dive and observe the beautiful range of large and small fish, some remaining’s of the old shipwrecks and the beauty of the clean waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
