About Us

Welcome to the Apollo website. My name is Steve and I am a former Police Sergeant with Thames Valley Police. It was always my dream to own a 'holiday home' or my 'Place in the Sun' and was lucky enough to venture to Cyprus in 2005. Together with my partner, David, we own two apartments on the prize winning Paphos Regina Gardens Resort, located close by to the Tomb of the Kings ancient site and entertainment centre. We purchased our 1 Bedroom apartment (Athena) in 2005, mainly for our use but also to allow others within the family to escape the British weather. With many friends spending their holidays on the island, we were advised to rent out our apartment throughout the year and generate a little extra income. This was a great hobby, generally keeping me busy during my 'off- duty' times. The apartment became so popular with friends, family and work colleagues that we decided to purchase a second 2 bedroom apartment (Apollo) in the same location. With hard work and a sincere consideration for our guests, we have continuously leased our apartments from 2007 until the present time. Our success has been so dramatic, that on my retirement in September 2011, we now live in Paphos and able to manage our apartments, personally. It has been our joy to meet all of our guests and to support them throughout their stay, being able to deal with any problems that may occur whilst providing assistance and advice throughout the period of the holiday.

Both David and I have travelled and stayed at many apartments around Europe and the USA. In most cases, we have been sadly disappointed by the standard and lack of personal attention to the accommodation. We decided that if we were to let our apartments on a business footing, we wanted to give our guests the very best that we could offer together with the personal touch that I know that people enjoy. On purchase of each apartment, we completely emptied all the standard furnishings and replaced it with a better quality (that we would be happy with in our own home). We installed Ceiling fans to each of the rooms and covered every window with 'solar reflective' fly screens to allow windows to remain open but to keep out the many bugs and mossies associated with hot climate countries. Each of our apartments have Air-Conditioning of which we ensure is checked and serviced each year (sometimes twice a year dependant on extremely long hot/ humid periods) to give the maximum benefit to our guests. The towels and bedding are replaced in April of each year to again maximise personal comfort and to ensure that there is a plentiful supply. Likewise, all crockery is checked for wear and cracks and damaged pieces replaced immediately.

Once we were seen to running our 'enterprise', other owners approached us to manage and rent their properties on their behalf. In March 2013, we took into our portfolio a 2 bedroom Townhouse which we named 'Danae' after the mother of Perseus, the mythical hero. later in April/ May we were asked to manage two, two bedroom apartments, also in Regina Gardens, which we named 'Hestia' and 'Hera', both greek goddesses and adding to the Apollo Rentals Portfolio. All these properties have rented very, with many guests booking again for 2014. Another one Bedroom apartment 'Hermes' has also been added to the portfolio, but for now the owners have decided upon 'Longer Term' Rent and therefore unavailable for short term holiday rentals for the time being.

We are very proud of what we have achieved as a Self Catering Holiday Provider. We do believe in giving our best to ensure that our accommodation is well presented and fully equipped. We know that the location is superb and the resort provides the very best in meticulously maintained Swimming Pools & gardens. We try to provide a 'stress- free' environment in which we take away the hassle from the moment you arrive until it is time for you to leave. It is true, that many people have read the testimonials on Owners Direct & Trip-Adviser and considered our properties to be a scam or fake? We can reassure all of our potential bookers that this is most certainly not the case and that the testimonials provided to those sites and what you read here are genuine and written by guests that have stayed in our properties. We are confident that once stayed in one of our properties, you will wish to return as many of guests do year after year!

Apollo owners, Steve and David
