"Great apartment in a beautiful location on a calm sandy beach! What more could we ask? Although our visit was in the middle of February we were fortunate enough to enjoy very nice sunny weather. We had an excellent holiday. We know that we will miss this place and we are sure that we will come back again soon. We definitely recommend this apartment for any one looking for a romantic holiday on a beautiful beach"

"Dear Avraam Thank you very much! This has been a very pleasant 2 weeks stay with a good mixture of sightseeing, relaxation, swimming, sunbathing, a lot of cooking and eating and not the least fraternizing with the local cat population. We even had some fishing and tasting many of the local delicious fresh fish dishes. Thanks for the very nice welcome and all the useful information you gave us during all our stay! All Cypriots we have met have been really nice and very friendly. Cannot thing of anywhere better for spending my holidays! I will tell about Governors Beach and your wonderful house to all my friends. See you again soon! Best regards Randi and Tore"

|Review submitted by Grigoriy from Moscow (Submitted: 28/07/2010)|
"Beginning of July 2010 we arrived at the apartment. It was exactly as described in the internet, very clean and airy with excellent view and access to the beach which was superb and we enjoyed swimming every day. A nice sea frond apartment with great location. If looking for relaxation and peace, Governors beach is a beautiful area with lovely beach. There was good communication from Elena, owners wife who is Ukrainian and we were happy to find out she spoke our language - Russian. The air condition was included in the price, and as it was hot in July we really needed it. So all in all our stay started off well and stayed that way for the rest of our holiday. I would rate this apartment as excellent with good quality, furniture and appliances - free internet and satellite TV. Our holiday was a great experience and that is exactly why we will be back again the next time we visit Cyprus. "

"This beautiful beach apartment met all our expectations and it was very good value for money. It was even better that the description on internet and the owner was very nice and polite. We have enjoyed our stay very much and if we have the chance we shall book it again. We shall recommend this apartment to our friends who like to travel to Cyprus. Thank you Avraam and Lena!"

"This delightful apartment is a little gem. Overlooking the beautifully picturesque Governors Bay, the cosy apartment was absolutely bliss for our three week stay. It has all the amenities you could wish for, including satellite TV and free wireless Internet. It is very close to some of the best restaurants in the area (walking distance - along the beach), and the owners couldn't be more helpful and amenable.
Thank you for a wonderful stay Avraam and Elena"

"If you are looking for a get-away-from-it-all, relaxing beach holiday, then you've come to the best possible place. Desi-Ray at Governors Beach is the top apartment in a small complex overlooking the sunny bay of soft sand. In the morning you are awoken by the gentle breaking of the waves against the beach, and in the evening you are lulled to sleep by the same. Even after several years of visiting the island you can never grow tired or bored of all that it offers. Sun, great beaches and a clarity of light so beloved of photographers and artists alike. Desi-Ray is clean, practical and comfortable. The large terrace with sun loungers and enormous parasol offers a private view over the stunning bay. As well as all the usual facilities you would expect in a holiday apartment, the owner has recently installed satellite TV and Wi-Fi internet. Ideal for the business holiday maker. If you can tear yourself away from the view of course!"

"Thanks to Avraam and Elena for the welcome and for the personal touches during our stay. The apartment met our expectations and was as described. Nice comfortable beach and not crowded at all. A sideline not related to the apartment: would recommend future guests rent a car and not rely on the taxi service to Limassol as we did. Expensive and not always reliable for times. Having your own transportation is the way to go, especially if you would make frequent trips to town or wish to see more of Cyprus. Nearest market is a village about 7km and lots of shopping in Limassol. Everything in the apartment was nice and all the cooking tools, including dishes and silverware one would need are there. Very short walk to the beach and water was nice for swimming. A great place for children, as the water slopes gently and is not deep for quite a ways out. Thanks Avraam and Elena for a comfortable stay!"

"Every year for the last 4 years we spend our holidays in this lovely beach apartment and we are sure we shall continue doing so for the years to come. We have been to many paces before but we cannot compare any other place with this beautiful apartment. It has everything we ever wanted and we have noticed that every year the owners look after the property and doing improvements. Governor's beach is always calm and clean, and far from the wide known overcrowded beaches of Cyprus. Yet famous Limassol tourist area is just 15 minutes drive if you miss night life. We are already dreaming of finding our selves on Desirey's veranda enjoying the sea view with "souvlaki" and beer!"

we have visited desi-ray beach apartment and we were
clad to see some improvements inside the apartment. A
nice wooden dinning table and chairs, washing machine
and LCD TV. As always we had a great time and soon
will be back again. This is a high class holiday
accommodation in a low price and we don't even think
of searching of anything else. We don't think we can
find anything better. We definitely recommend this
lovely apartment to any one going holiday in

accommodation directly overlooking the beautiful
Governor's beach! Desiray is a very well equipped
property with a bigger fridge that you usually find
in tourist apartments, a nice wooden dinning table
and chairs inside and a nice table outside at the
veranda with umbrella and sun beds. Bedroom is very
nice and tidy with sea view, specious sitting room
with a small kitchen and yet equipped with washing
machine, very nice oven and all necessary. We liked
the location very much as it is not an overcrowded
resort, free of hotels and over build-up areas. Most
important and interesting tourist destinations are
easily accessible from Governor’s beach. For
sight-seeing a car rental is essential. We are
pleased we have booked this apartment and we can
recommend it for relaxing holidays on the beach! We
had a wonderful time and we definitely shall go back
again with the first chance. Thank you! Clare "

"The view to the beach
from the apartment was outstanding. It was a few
steps away to get on to the beach and into the
beautiful calm waters of the sea. The apartment
itself, although quite small, was more than adequate
for the two of us. What I liked most about it was
that it was away from the bustle of the towns so it
was really peaceful which is exactly what we needed.
One thing I would have liked was satellite TV for
those evenings that we just wanted to sit back, have
a few drinks and enjoy the apartment. Unless all you
want to do is sit on the beach, a car is essential."

to say what a very enjoyable two weeks holiday Ive
had in Governors beach @ Desi-Ray appartment. This
was a lovely place to stay, everything in the
apartment very well equipped & clean with a
wonderful view from the balcony over Governors beach.
If you want a peaceful, relaxed holiday with none of
the stresses of modern life just nice local
restaurants to eat in within easy walking distance
& a lovely sea to swim in, then I would
absolutely recommend this lovely,unspoiled place for
a holiday. You do need a car to see the island &
for shopping,otherwise everything is there to make
your holiday perfect. With my best regards,from Jill.

be in very good order,both clean and decoratively.
The equipment was more than adequate for our
requirements. The view from the property was probably
one of the best on Governors Beach. The insect
netting sliding doors were a godsend in the evenings
and at night. Of the equipment in the kitchen the
lead for the electric kettle should be resided away
from the hob plates. We were disturbed by
refurbishment of the next door apartment. To be fair
the foreman on site worked late on the Sunday at our
request to shorten our disturance. We do realise that
this is not a permanent situation."

"We have just come back
from a 2 week holiday at governor’s beach
resort and would highly recommend this apartment to
anyone, especially those wishing to get away from it
all. We were very impressed with the apartment which
was spotless and in an incredible location
overlooking the blue sea. The living room and the
bedroom doors open to a lovely veranda which is much
more specious than what is shown on the photo. From
this point we could hear the sound of the sea as it
was less than 50 meters away! This is something we
will always remember! Very close to the apartment
were very good sea food restaurants, but also serving
meat for meat lovers! The sea is extremely clean and
safe to swim. Governors Beach is relatively
undiscovered and is not a busy resort. A hiring car
is recommended as there are some beautiful villages
in the area with lovely restaurants and taverns. Some
of them are: Tochni, Zygi, Kalavasos, Maroni,
Lefkara…all are in very easy reach of
Governors Beach. I have already talked to some of my
friends already about this beautiful apartment and we
will certainly try to book again. We had a fantastic
holiday that we will always remember"

"The week at Desi-Ray was
like a dream come true. We felt as if on a desert
island but with all the comforts of modern life (in
fact everything in the apartment worked perfectly
well including the oven). The place is far away from
holiday crowds (at times you can have the beach
entirely to yourself) but well positioned towards the
motorways. A car is required although if you are not
in a ‘driving mood’ there is no need to
go anywhere: the nearby restaurant (it literally is
next door) serves good food; you can have a swim in
the sea and come up to sunbathe on the veranda
enjoying the wonderful view. If you are after a quiet
romantic holiday, go for it. One has to be a really
grumpy person to find faults with the place."

works and that you get keys for the washing machine.
It is in a great position overlooking Sandy Bay if
