“The Ultimate Relaxing Holiday - A Real Gem!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Stayed with partner and little one for a week in this most lovely villa based just up the hill from Coral Bay near Peyia. First impressions are very important on holiday and the villa really does have that 'Wow' factor! Beautiful location looking down on Coral Bay from the immaculate garden and swimming pool terrace and the surrounding countryside.

Inside the open plan kitchen is well appointed with a lovely cool lounge and dining room. Also downstairs is a lovely cool twin bedroom with ample storage and separate large ensuite - we could really see that the villa could easily accommodate a larger family or three couples.

A marble staircase leads to another twin bedroom again with large ensuite plus the master bedroom which looks out to a large terrace on the first floor overlooking the beautiful gardens and a wonderful sea view - perfect for evening drinks and dinner by candlelight!

It's obvious that great care and attention has been given to provide a perfect Cyprus holiday experience - we spent a lot of time at the villa but it was also well-placed to visit the beautiful hill towns and villages plus the beaches of Coral Bay or further afield to Paphos and Petra tou Romiou - 'Aphrodite's Birth Place'.

“Great Villa, Stunning Views”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Great villa and stunning views, loved every minute of our stay there and here is why.

The views to the back of the villa are sensational, my wife preferred the mountain view and I preferred the sea view, but talk about cake and eat it, we had both and was just a view you would never get tired of.

The gardens were impeccable and a lovely gazebo area which looks especially nice after dark with the outside lights on.

We really enjoyed and made use of the excellent sized swimming pool and the sunbeds were very good quality too and plenty of shade when needed from the parasols. Made our lazy days by the pool most enjoyable.

Inside the Villa is lovely too, the kitchen is spacious and very well equipped including nice big fridge/freezer.

Master bedroom was a good size room with a good size bed. Second bedroom upstairs had a nice little balcony to the front of the house which we enjoyed first thing in the morning.

The main upstairs balcony is a great space and enjoyed so many sunsets looking out to the aforementioned mountains and sea. The excellent IPod dock provided a nice bit of background music.

Are there any downsides? Maybe one depending on how important privacy is to you in that to the left of the villa there are two other properties that look out directly over the property, this initially did concern us, but one remains empty most of the summer as this is used mostly as a winter residence and the other you would hardly know they are there so neither are holiday lets which might have made this a different story. It was lovely and peaceful the whole time we were there and this is pretty much borne out by previous reviews.

One final point, the villa owners were extremely helpful throughout the booking process and always willing and ready to respond to requests for information, also the local agent was very friendly and helpful the couple of times we needed her.

All in all a fantastic villa and would thoroughly recommend it to you.
