Property rentals in Cyprus are almost always trouble free and many guests return year after year to the same property or rent for several years without any problems.
In recent years a few cases of rentals for properties that don’t actually exist have been brought to our attention so make sure you know who you are dealing with. There are plenty of properties available, even is the most popular resorts, so don’t be pressurised to hand over money without first checking out that the property actually exists.
