If you’re reading this, trying to decide if this villa is for you, stop hesitating and book it! From the moment we arrived and our son’s excited shouts of “this is awesome”, we knew we’d chosen a gem.
The pool, especially at night, looked inviting and we weren’t disappointed. I swam every day (I don’t like public pools because, as a teacher, there’s nothing worse than hearing “hi, miss” when you’re in your swimming costume), as did our son.
The high ceilings in all the rooms meant that my very tall husband didn’t bang his head once and you get a real sense of space in the villa and, even with visiting parents, we had plenty of manoevre room.
A welcome pack...well, welcomed us. The UK TV was lovely on a night (in a bid to avoid the inevitable biting insects outside - it was very warm).
Within the villa’s immediate vicinity are two eateries and two pubs/bars. It took us ten minutes to walk to “the strip” for lunch at Coral King and a further 5 minutes to the big supermarket from where our shopping and ourselves were driven home by the supermarket driver.
Around the corner from the villa is a diving school and two guys came to teach our 12 yr old the basics of diving in the villa pool. He loved it and the teacher was brilliant with him.
We also went to the cat sanctuary, up in the hills, to sponsor a cat in memory of a recently deceased, cat-loving uncle. If you like cats, this is a must (you don’t have to sponsor one but they always appreciate donations and/or cat biscuits).
This villa has everything and we really didn’t want to leave. We shall be back (if they’ll have us).
Villa Elena is an excellent villa in a superb location. It is less than 5 minute walk to the beach and approx 10 mins walk to the main strip of reastaurants in Coral Bay. The bus stop was 2 minutes away for visits to the harbour. We used taxi numbers left in the vila and the drivers knew the exact location of the villa and were very reliable. The villa itself is excellent. It is spotlessly clean with all the amenities you could need. The inside is spacious with an excellent games room. The outside area continues with the immaculate, clean, spacious theme. The pool is very big and kept clean to a high standard. The owner is very quick at replying to emails and takes time to answer any questions. The management team and pool men in Cyprus were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be booking Villa Elena again.
Fantastic villa located within 5 mins walk of both beaches in the Coral Bay area.
Bus service is excellent and if you want a relaxing holiday then there is no necessity to rent a vehicle unless you are sightseeing. Stayed as a couple and had everything on site that we required. Most of our days spent lounging around the pool and then down to Coral Bay beach to catch the last of the sun. If you need to use the supermarket catch the bus into Coral Bay and walk to the main supermarket (about 5 mins). Ask at checkout for free delivery and get taken back with your groceries to the villa. Thank you Vincent and Elena for allowing us to use your home. Will come back with our extended family.
My stay at Villa Elena was like been in a movie. The location is ideal, a two minute walk to friendly bars and restaurants where the food and service is first class. The nearby beach at Coral Bay is idyllic with all the water sports you could wish for and again the loveliest people running things. The outdoor dinning area and barbecue is excellent, I would recommend Philleepo's super market for your meats and salads (remarkably inexpensive). The swimming pool is amazing and a good size, very secluded/ private ideal for late night dips :-)
I will be returning every year from now on.
Excellent location. 5 minute walk to two beaches. A few local bars close by and 15 minute walk to the main street full of family friendly bars, restaurants and live entertainment. Pathos was easy to get to by bus. All fares 1.5 euros and very frequent. A taxi was arranged to collect us from airport, excellent service and a good price.
The Villa was everything we expected. Very spacious for 6 adults, everyone happy with there rooms and facilities. Brilliant size pool which got a great deal of use.
Booking was easy, and the owners give comprehensive information to make the best of your holiday, answering any queries promptly. I would highly recommend this villa.
