Villa Poinciana is now the most reviewed villa in Western Cyprus on trip advisor. Consistently over the last 5 years we have provided hundreds of guests from all over the world with a wonderful villa at reasonable prices that have made their vacation a memorable one.

The villa enjoys wonderful views of the sea and mountains in a quiet location yet close to many activities in Latchi such as water sports, cycling, hiking and fishing. The villa is well arranged, offering spacious modern accommodation, bedroom balconies and fully furnished with a modern, exquisite style. You will find a tempting 10m x 5m PRIVATE HEATED swimming pool surrounded in the garden, parasols and sun beds. During the cooler Winter months the villa has proper underfloor heating avaliable for use provided free of charge (Dec-Mid March). Managed by local agents who go to great lengths to ensure all guests are looked after, as is confirmed by all the trip advisor reviews, the highest of any similar sized villa in the Polis area.

The beach is just a 3 minute walk away and the picturesque fishing harbour of Latchi with its famous restaurants a 5 - 7 min walk (depending on how fast a walker you are). At night you can sit and relax in one of the local beach bars, enjoy the music, and even take a midnight swim and return to the bar ! Charming Polis is a 5 min drive with its wide range of taverns and restaurants, many situated around the paved town square. And of course the legendary Baths of Aphrodite are only 4.0 km away.

The villa has privacy, its own private heated swimming pool and garden area, magnificent mountain and sea views and is absolutely perfect for a quiet and relaxing holiday. Take a look at some of the pictures here to get an example of what I mean. Situated just outside Latchi village near the isolated, rugged and scenic Akamas Peninsula, a visit to the legendary Baths of Aphrodite is a must as is boat journey up the Akamas peninsula to stop in many of the coves such as the blue lagoon to swim or snorkel. Ramblers will love the many walks available in the area as the hills and valley are completely unspoiled and simply pristine. This area of Cyprus is not suitable for those who are seeking a wild night life but perfect for a quiet, relaxing holiday. However for the younger generation visiting there are a few good nightclubs in the Latchi/Polis area and bustling Paphos is but a 35min drive away.

The Paphos region

The climate in the Paphos region is for long dry hot Summers where temperatures can reach up to 40c with 13.0 hours of sunshine and temperatures falling nicely down in the evening to lows of 22c-24c. The Winter months of Dec, Jan and Feb bring rain but temperatures still remain about 16-20C with an average of 5.0 hours on sunshine and sometimes with colder, fresher nights.

Whatever you desire, activity, tranquillity, good food, fine wine, golf, spas, walking and nature, the upper class Paphos region offers it all. The charming west coast town of Paphos focusses around an attractive little harbour whose picturesque open air fish restaurants line a quayside of fishing boats and laid back life. The historical and magical area of Latchi/Polis is unmissable to anyone looking for sun, sea and serenity.

For keen walkers and cyclists, the very nearby Akamas National Park offers a paradise of endless walks and cycle ways, 4*4 driving, wild animals and birds, fauna, fantastic sea views and secluded coves for snorkelling and swimming. Akamas is included in the official UNESCO world's heritage list of cultural and natural treasures. Please note cycles, mopeds and cars can all be hired locally in Latchi. A visit to the Troodos mountains and some of the famous monasteries is a must where you can view all of the West side of Cyprus.

For golfers, there are three quality , panoramic , courses within an hour’s drive, all open to visitors, namely the Aphrodite Hills, Secret Valley and Tsada Golf Clubs.


Close by are the baths of Aphrodite with an exhilarating view over the bay. According to legends the baths are where Aphrodite took her beauty baths in a pool of a natural grotto shaded by a fig tree.My villa is situated about 3km out of the Akamas national park, the Akamas peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Sandy bays, deep gorges with varied landscapes.

Watersports and diving can be done in this area with 2 Padi diving schools located in Latchi and Paphos.

Jeef safari tours are incredibly popular within the Akamas peninsula.

With wine tasting and mounting biking there is sure to be something for everyone.

"Villa Poinciana"

We enjoyed a totally relaxing holiday in this lovely villa and can recommend it as a place to both get away from it all yet be within walking distance of great restaurants and the beach. We loved the … More

Thankyou very much for a great review Blake. I hope your family had a great Summer. We are extending the fence between the neighbours for greater privacy ( i know the hibiscus both sides nearly did that) but aso and more importantly we are replacing the pool liner for a fresher more modern one.

Thanks again and hope to welocme you back one day

"Quality setting coupled with the privacy of a home!"

This is exactly what we needed: disconnect in a quality setting while enjoying the privacy of a home! The villa is very comfortable, well equipped, and well maintained; and the owner is very responsiv… More


Very glad you all had a good time. I know this was your first experience of booking directly with a villa owner and not through an agency so im pleased the experience was a good one and we delivered on our promise.

We hope to see you back again soon

"Villa Poinciana will exceed your expectations"

From the point of booking it was clear that the owner dealt with our enquiry and booking with exacting detail. The information before departure was greatly appreciated and we had confidence in our dealings at all times.

When we reached the Villa, our expectations were exceeded, the quality of furnishings and attention to detail made us feel that we had made the right choice.

The villa is very spacious and is perfectly situated, easy access to the beach and harbour in a matter of minutes. You will never get bored with the 180 degree views for the balconies.

The owners agents, Mark and Ada were just as attentive and nothing was too much trouble, from advice on local attractions and restaurants to dealing with minor matters such as pool and villa cleaning.

We would have no hesitation is recommending a holiday here and would return again.

Thank you Michael, Mark and Ada.

Thankyou Richard and family for a great review. Its always brightens up my day when a guest has not only enjoyed their stay but thoroughly enjoyed their stay.

Fro potential guests reading this, please note that not all happy holiday makers give me trip advisor reviews. I believe with this one that this makes it the 2nd highest reviewed home in Cyprus.

Much appreciated and hopefully we can welcome you back soon

"Great Relaxing Villa"

We are settling back into our routine after our wonderful stay at Villa Poinciana. We could not fault the villa which more than met our expectations, a quick walk to the marina and beach. Michael was excellent in his responses and always very helpful as was his agent Mark who bent over backwards to help. We really do hope to return sometime again soon

Thanks Nigel. Glad you had a great time.Michael

"lovely villa, great location with fantastic views"

We had an excellent stay in Poinciana in mid June 2014 that exceeded all our expectations. The villa holds one of the prime plots on the edge of a small development on the outskirts of Latchi overlooking countryside on two sides. The location provided easy walking access to a wealth of tavernas in Latchi, a good local supermarket and the sea. Polis, Paphos, the Akamus Peninsular and traditional villages are easily accessible by car, each with scenic drives.

The villa itself was comfortably appointed and very well maintained including the grounds.with a wealth of flowering shrubs. We spent meal times outside on the patio with that glorious view towards the distant mountains.

Communication with the owner Michael was outstanding with an almost immediate response to our initial inquiry, followed up with a telephone conversation. Mark, the local agent, was very pleasant and helpful on arrival and on departure day and always on call..

This was our first visit to Cyprus and we very much enjoyed the country, its contrasts in scenery, the friendly locals and the in-season fruit.

Hi Jeremy

Thankyou very much for a splendid review. We always try our very best to ensure guests are happy with the villa. We hope to welcome you all back at some point in the future.

"Beautiful villa in a great location and total relaxtion!"

We stayed at this wonderful villa for a week in November. Michael the owner was very attentive from point of enquiry all the way through to the holiday.The villa itself is in a great location, nice and relaxing in the day and only a short walk to all the amenities in Latchi. The villa is spacious and nicely furnished, it does not have the feel of a rental villa, more of a home. The outside area is great, plenty of furniture to relax on. The pool is larger than most villas and kept immaculate! Mark, the property manager is always on hand if required, but leaves you in peace and quiet to enjoy the holiday. Latchi harbour which is close by has a number of exellent resturants and is the perfect place for total relaxation. Overall it was a great holiday and i would recommend it to everyone, we will definitely be returning, thanks again Michael.

Thanks Chris. You complete the end of the 2013 very successful season. Thanks again

"beautiful villa in excellent location"

Michael was always ready to provide any assistance if required. Booking is easy & plenty of information is provided.
The property is clean, well maintained & well equipped for 8 if required.
The villa is only 6 minutes steady walk to restaurants, bars & shops & 2 minutes to closest beach. We hired a car as Latchi is very small & it is nice to visit other beaches & towns.
Polis has some lovely restaurants aswell. Our favourite being Moustakallis, a friendly, family run business. Also Finikas (Polis) & Molos (Latchi).

Thanks again Sharon for booking with me again this year. Glad you all had a great time and we hope to welcome you back sometime soon.

"Great villa at reasonable price"

Stayed at villa for a week in September, nice and tidy with everything you need, great size pool that you could actually have a proper swim in, lovely outside garden areas, very peaceful location but only a short 10 min stroll to the port area where there are plenty of places to eat and drink ! If you fancy a bit more classy meal then a short drive to The Old Town Tavern in Polis is well worth a visit. Also hired a boat from George's boat hire and had a great day. Both Michael & his agent Mark made everything very easy from booking to leaving. All in all a very relaxing and sunny week :-)

Thankyou Matt and family. Glad you all had a great time. I'm sure your all looking forward to the new family arrival and many congratulations from us all. Michael

"Great holiday. I would return"

We had a lovely holiday staying at Villa Poinciana. The owner, Michael, was very helpful with good communication throughout. He responded quickly to my emails and even called a few days before we left home to wish us a happy holiday.As we were arriving late to the villa he arranged for a small shopping list of groceries to be waiting for us on arrival and we only had to pay for the cost of the shopping.Our security deposit was returned very quickly too. The villa itself was clean and comfortable, with plenty of space for the six of us. Although we ate out for much of the time, the kitchen was well quipped and had plenty of glasses, crockery, cutlery etc.It was very hot when we were there and we found that we did need the aircon both upstairs and down.It was an efficient system that worked well, although it timed out after 2 hours which was a bit annoying! The pool and gardens were probably the highlight of the villa. The outside terrace area near to the house was a lovely place to sit out and enjoy the sunshine and we would often sit there in the evenings too. The pool was a great size with a good sunbathing area. The garden and pool felt very private and we didn't feel overlooked at all. There was some late night music from a bar on the seafront which at times could be heard at the villa (depending on the wind direction) but it didn't really bother us and certainly wouldn't put me off going back. The villa was in a good position just a short walk from the beach and the marina. The walk was very easy, especially as it was level and flat and it was fine to walk back from at night as it was well lit. The area is quiet (which suited us) but there are plenty of places to eat and a few nice bars to have a cocktail or two. We hired a boat for a day from George's watersports at the marina and that was fantastic. Overall, a good place to stay and if I go back to Cyprus I would rebook this villa.

Thankyou very much Ruth for a great review. Ruth was kind enough to give some tips to improve the villa. We have since purchased some chairs for the bedrooms and some small dressing tables which will certainly help in the future. More hooks in the bathroom was a request from a previous guest which we also have now.

Any future potential guest reading this please take note we always welcome future suggestions for improvement.

Thanks again Ruth and hope to welcome you all back in the future.
