Over the last 3 years that our guests have been enjoying Villa Christina for holiday rentals, we’ve received very positive feedback and have continued to invest in the property to make sure our guests are completely satisfied. We’re therefore disappointed when we receive only a “good” rating (our first) rather than “excellent”.
Just to respond to the points raised by our guest, we personally find Choirokoitia a very pretty, typically Cypriot village, with flower strewn, cobbled streets and very friendly local villagers. In our opinion, it is unspoilt by some of the commerciality of larger resorts such as Latchi and yet is perfectly situated on the island. Its central location allows guests to reach major centres such as Nicosia, Limassol and Larnaca within less than half an hour whilst being nice and close to a variety of beaches, pretty villages and restaurants.
We have invested heavily in the equipment at the villa, with audio visual equipment including TV, DVD, CD, radio and iPod player, as well as free, unlimited wireless internet. The private pool is 5m long and so many of our guests have welcomed the opportunity to cool off within the surrounds of the villa garden whilst also enjoying the fantastic communal pool facilities. The air conditioning system provides both cool and hot air on demand and is very effective. Based on our own research, the majority of holiday villas in Cyprus (many of which charge extra for A/C use, whilst we do not) appear to use a timer system as this has a number of benefits – not least, it prevents the A/C units burning out through being left on 24/7 with doors and windows open (as some guests would prefer). As part of our continuing investment, we are installing brand new ceiling fans in all of the bedrooms and main living area before the end of 2012 to ensure the continuing comfort of our guests.
We accept that our guests may have differing needs but we seem to succeed in pleasing by far the vast majority. We would be more than happy to discuss any of these points with anyone who is considering staying at Villa Christina.

I returned to this property a year on. The house and development was as good as I recalled from the previous stay. Comfortable accommodation, well served by the air conditioning units which were definitely needed in early July temperatures of the low 30s! The mattress in the main bedroom was a little soft for my friend who experienced a slightly bad back, but nothing significant and mattresses are very personal things - a move to the second bedroom solved the issue with a slightly harder mattress! The kitchen has everything one needs for preparing meals but there's a restaurant easily within 5 minutes walk for a great meze and friendly owners. Nice lounge area for chilling out with a glass of wine in the evening, if not sitting on the balcony with views across the nearby countryside. The communal pool literally within one minute's walk is clean and well-kept, and a small cafe on site provides snacks and drinks, although this wasn't open in May 2014 so it may only be open in high summer. Wifi available in the pool area but not in the house, which meant a proper break from the Netbook and iPad :-) The weather I experienced both times (in May and July) was perfect, wall to wall sunshine and high temperatures, which are very persuasive in making for a totally relaxing holiday. Car hire is essential but with three main towns (Limassol, Larnaca and Nicosia) all within 45 minutes drive, and the beautiful scenery of the Troodos Mountains on the doorstep, there's lots to see and do. I should aim to go again when I won't feel resentful leaving the pool to see some of the sights! Some excellent restaurant recommendations were provided by the property owners in their very useful on-site notes, four of which were tried during this trip and all well worth it. Thinking you might like this place? Give it a go, you won't be disappointed. …
We have stayed in a few places recently and they have been OK so we were absolutely delighted to find a place which well exceeds expectations. The property is delightful with everything you need provided. We loved sitting out the back overlooking the pool and had all out meals out there in a peaceful and tranquil setting. In fact it was so quiet that the pool almost seemed private - I used it multiple times. My wife enjoyed the roof terrace which provides plenty of privacy to catch the Cyprus sun. We will likely be back next year. Thanks Neil. …
