I shouldn't be the 1st in line to answer this, but i doubt that you can expect to find a high number of "rental appartments next to phinikoudes". First of all it is 'downtown Larnaca', so if you're looking for a hotel room, you're chances would be better. Secondly, you'll hit in there in the peak season, which would also narrow your chances a little bit.

Maybe a search on this site could help you off:

Beware; that link directs you to the Larnaca REGION

The "Acropolis Apartments http://www.reservationseurope.com/hotel/cyprus/larnaca/acropolis-apartments.html

They are not exactly right on the beach but it is 6 minutes on foot from the beach. Besides Larnaca is so small. Try these.
Get in touch if you need more information on anything else.

Travel Tips for Larnaca

THE WORLD FAMOUS LACE WORK....

by eden_teuling

Not in Larnaca but in LEFKARA you must be to see these women working their lace......
There are two LEFKARAS, aboout 1 km. from each other.
In cyprus we often see a upper village (Pano) and a lower village (kato).
Pano Lefkara is quite commercial but Pano Lefkare is just great!

It is here that you have to be for the traditional local style of LACE that is called: LEFKARITIKA.
This is not the name of a certain pattern because each design is a creation of the woman who makes it. It is a very complicated and intricated Art.

The skills go from mother to daughter.
The lace is very sought after by ROYALTY as well as by more humble visitors like you and me! Seeing these women at work, definitely. Asked how many time a certain work would take, the answer was: a year!!

This precious LACE has already been made here for CENTURIES and the rich VENETIAN women who wanted to flee the heat and came to this place, bought it and took it home!

So it is really WORLD FAMOUS....

The men soon discovered that those works of art brought them more money so they stopped farming and became "agents", "managers" and even made trips abroad while their wives and daughters had to stay home to make the lace...

Here you see mothers and daughters, the younger ones also in black, and only one with glasses, working and talking!

SAINT LAZARUS CHURCH

by greekcypriot

At the corner of Faneromenis and Agiou Lazarou Street is the church of Saint Lazarus, built in the 9th century by Byzantine Emperor Leo, on the site of St. Lazarus' tomb. According to legend, Lazarus travelled to Larnaca after his resurrection, and became the city's first bishop. His tomb is inside the church, under the main altar. The entrance is decorated with a number of icons. The church belltower was built in 1857. The church houses a small museum, containing beautiful samples of Byzantine religious art, including old wood carvings, icons and liturgical utensils.
