Description

The space

This listing is a double room on the upper floor of the building with aircondition, a double bed and a desk with a working chair and screen suitable for people wishing to combine work and leisure.
The kitchen and bathroom which are used exclusively by the guests of this room are on the ground floor of the building, past the inner courtyard. The inner courtyard which is right next to the kitchen is an enchanting space where guests can enjoy their meals, with elements of traditional architecture. The kitchen is equipped fully with tables, chairs, utensils, a nespresso coffee machine, a small refrigerator, a toaster and kettle. There is however no stove nor oven so guests can't cook meals there.
The bathroom, newly refurbished, is of modern design and has a shower. The restoration of the whole house was completed in 2013 fully respecting the traditional features of the building.

Maria and David made our arrival and stay fantastic. Their renovated space was super cool and felt pleasantly secluded, even though there were plenty of shops around, including a coffeehouse literally out the back door. Their research and information about the "green line" divide through the city was helpful in understanding some of the nature of the conflict. We would definitely stay here again.

A hidden gem. That is David and Maria's house. I stayed here with my husband for a week. Its even better than the pictures show. The entrance, wow. The kitchen is equipped with the basic things, you dont need anything else. Bring your own Nespresso cups, the Nespresso store is at about an our walk (outside the old walls). Milk, sugar, fruit and even bread on the day we arrived! And a good bottle of wine! Towels, shampoo, soap, its all there. From the house to the city centre is a 10 minutes walk,ten very pleasant minutes. After every corner there is another beautiful house, trendy café or restaurant. You"ll explore new ones every time you do the walk. Actually back home we already miss it! David and Maria are incredibly warm and friendly and do anything to make you feel at home. Due to an unfortunate event I had to visit a hospital, we wanted to get a taxi, but David insisted to bring us. The call from the mosque for the early morning prayer, you will hear it only the first night. The place is very clean. I can not think of anything negatieve. Just book the place! You will not regret your choice.

Maria and David were great hosts! Very caring, helpful and generous. Thanks for everything! This place was a lucky find - from the blue door to the stairs and the courtyard there were architectonic highlights in every nook and cranny. It is a quite neighborhood in development with a lot of interesting spots like museums and art spaces or restaurants within walking distance. My personal highlight was finding Maria's research on the city as part of the decoration of the house, opening up new perspectives on trying to understand Nicosia's complexity. I was traveling on my own in December, feeling safe and very comfortable. I wonder how amazing this place must be in the warmer months!

Maria is a wonderful host! She has not only been a great host from the very beginning but a wonderful guide and a kind friend to me during my stay. She is a local and knows so much about the history, architecture and life in Cyprus. My communication with her was smooth and she was very responsive. The location of the house is PERFECT! The most beautiful part of Nicosia. The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful and at the same time ten minutes walk to hip coffeeshops, bookclubs, restaurants, museums and galleries. My room was large enough to do my yoga practice, write my book and rest during the way when i got tired of walking in the beautiful streets of Nicosia. Kitchen had all the neccessary things and the small courtyard - tastefully renovated by Maria and her husband- was a haven for morning coffee and breakfast.
