The exterior of the villa (situated within a 4500 sqm plot) is exceptional with long private driveway leading past the fruit orchards to a large parking area with covered car port.

''The villa is stunning. A mix between traditional cypriot and modern contemporary design. It is very spacious and more than ideal for large groups. Providing plenty of comfortable living space for lounging, dining and bedrooms so you'll never feel like you're treading on other peoples toes during the stay. The outdoor area is a great feature and ideal for dining outside or simply relaxing by the pool. Located a short drive from Kissonerga it is situated beautifully between a selection of fruit orchards. It is about a 5-10 minute walk from the nearest shop and a 20 minute walk to the nearest beach. It is conveniently situated away from busy roads so in a very peaceful quiet area. The car that came with the property was an ideal addition to help get out and about on the island.
Our favourite beach closest to the villa (about a 10 min drive) was Coral Bay, particularly the northernmost bay in front of the Coral Beach Hotel. We also visited Curium near Limassol which along with a beautiful beach has an amphitheatre and stunning archaeological history site located on the cliff top. The Famagusta Tavern in Avdimou is a great stop for dinner on the way back (I highly recommend the pork chops). A bit further afield the trip to the Troodos mountains was very picturesque and The Mill in Kakopetria was a great stop for lunch.
Overall I have been very satisfied with the service provided. Both the original booking with Steven and communication with the owner George were more than satisfactory''.

''The villa was really excellent. Well equipped, much space for everyone, the car was a nice extra bonus :-) Pool was big, enough sunbeds and other sitting areas to enjoy beautiful weather.The location depends on people's needs. In our case – it was the best. Quiet, lots of nature in and out of the garden. You could see the sunset from upstairs balcony. And nearby villages were in walking distance (for us at least). Also a big supermarket near and we did all our shoppings there. Up in Tala village there was one great restaurant. I don't remember the name, started with letter M (Melitzia) and it was the first restaurant on the left when entering centre. Meze was excellent, also other dishes. And prices were reasonable. Main big shop was close – good choice of food, wines and everyday hygenic products. From beaches – of course Coral Bay. We also made a trip to Blue Lagoon – went by car to Latchi and then hiked up the mountain and then back through Blue Lagoon – it was hard but doable and views were amazing. Hiking took about 5 hours. Regarding your service, all anwsers and instructions came quickly, you were very helpful when we needed to be there earlier. George was really nice, he welcomed us, gave us fruits and food and wine for making our first arrival pleasant. He also visited us two times, took care about the pool, all the time asking if we were satisfied etc. It seems that he really cares about his visitors. Everything went smoothly for us''.

''A mix between modern and traditional with interesting architectural design inside. Nice plot on an unmade road, the vehicle included was very useful. Everyday we return to Cyprus we find somewhere new. We have visited the better known places but this time we found a very old monastery inland from Pomos and also Kalidonia Falls. Letsrentonline are very quick to respond to any queries and would use again without hesitation. The owner George popped in a few times and we learnt how to peel & empty a pomegranite properly. Rustic homely charm at it's best.''

Gg snack bar in paphos lovely surprise worth a visit. Very satisfied again thank you

"Had a great stay, just goes far too quickly! The house was great, well equipped & the car was a nice touch 2. The location was good for us as we live in the countryside & we found it very central for our sightseeing trips. We would recommend 'Tea for Two' & couple of restaurants in Pafos Harbour - Pelicans ( I believe ) & a Chinese (can't remember the name!). You have provided an excellent service throughout. The owner of the property was great, on hand, but not too intrusive. We liked the climate & flight schedules are easy so we would return..''
The Paphos District
You can drive to Villa Odysseas from Paphos Airport in about thirty minutes. From the villa it’s an easy drive into Paphos for some of the best shopping you’ll find anywhere in Cyprus. It’s also an easy drive to the centre of Peyia – a vibrant community stretching from the bright lights of Coral Bay to the traditional centre of the old village.
There is a good choice of beaches within an easy drive. Try Coral Bay (4km) – a great beach with every amenity you could imagine. Alternatively drive up the coast road into the Akamas Region (10km) to enjoy the quiet and unspoilt beaches of Lara and beyond.
There’s a golf course at Tsada (Minthis Hills) approximately 20 minutes drive away. Further golf courses at Secret valley, Aphrodite Hills and Elea Estate can also be reached in less than 30 minutes.
The villa has a very central location and is accessed from a lovely country lane on the edge of the village of Tala near Kissonerga. It’s just a 10-15 minute stroll into Kissonerga village where you’ll find a good selection of shops (George’s supermarket is less than 1km away and has everything you need), a bank and a few restaurants, one of which is an English style country pub (The Village Inn) if you are missing home. There is also a contemporary sports bar for those football fans out there.
Within easy reach by car (1km up gradual hill) is Tala Square which is popular for lunches, relaxing with a drink and evening meals on the verandas of the high quality restaurants, many with stunning views over Paphos and to the Sea. (The Gallery (upmarket), The Square (Popular with English-set menus etc), Masa Soura (Greek) and ‘Stamna’ (traditional Cypriot tavern) are all very popular with other cafes and eateries well worth a try also.
Tala is a popular and growing village, just 5km north of Paphos, set on a south facing hillside looking out over the blue Mediterranean. Immediately north of the village is the famous Agios Neophytos monastery dating from 1159. This is well worth a visit even if just for a coffee or to buy some traditional honey. In the fields around Tala you’ll find vineyards, orange, lemon, olive and almond trees and banana plantations.

"Lots of space and privacy"
The villa is spacious, very well equipped, enough privacy for everyone. It's in a good location - not far from Paphos (via car), Tala village is in a walking distance (good restaurants there also), big supermarket only few km away. Pool area has enough sunbeds and sitting corners, you can enjoy nature all around you:) Owner George is helpful and friendly, he really cares that you feel yourself good in there!

Dear John, Thank you so much for taking the time to write your feedback on Trip Advisor. We are very pleased that you enjoyed Villa Odysseas and all it has to offer which is much. I am sorry you did not feel the directions were good. They are designed to be followed by people who do not know the area. They are the easiest rather than quickest ways. I know you have been to the area before and chose a different route which I agree is better if you know where you are going. Thank you so much again for this helpful feedback. Best Wishes.
