“Tranquillity, with Stunning Views” We stayed at this beautiful Villa called “The Retreat” in July 2018, located a few miles south of Polis. The Villa is set reasonably high, affording it sublime 180 degrees views across the southern panorama and looking around in the distance there are farmland parcels and one-off villas. Most of the time, this is coupled with that golden sound track of “silence”. The Villa is well proportioned. Construction, layout, furniture and internal decoration are all well done and more than adequate. There were only the two of us and we used the en-suite bedroom upstairs and spent most of our time outside. Dark wood used internally makes the inside space dark with the shutters closed, but this is a modern villa. The swimming pool is gorgeous and its non-rectangular shape makes it look even nicer. For us, the garden was very important as we wanted to take lots of photographs of animals and biodiversity. There are many fruit trees which add to the overall pleasance of walking around the garden. For those interested in playing games there is table-tennis, pool table, dart boards and table football but the swimming pool and the garden win hands down. There are generous settings of tables, benches and chairs outside and a BBQ. Stone-clad walls and shutters keep the inside just cool enough downstairs but in July, at night, the air conditioning is needed to take edge of the excessive heat upstairs in the bedroom. The swimming pool affords complete privacy and this together with peace and quiet attracted us to this Villa.
A couple of miles straight down the road is Byrons Supermarket which will cater for most needs but for comprehensive food and drinks shopping there is Papantoniu Supermarket in Polis along with a very good fish mongers opposite the pharmacy. Polis is also the closest beach.
If one’s looking for a holiday property that is a perfect “getaway” with all that’s needed to hand, a fabulous swimming pool area, garden, all in total privacy then one need look no further. Simply wonderful.
“Great Holiday in Lovely Villa” Recently stayed at this villa for 10 days and we all had a wonderful holiday.
The weather was glorious and we made full use of the facilities, especially the pool and the BBQ. We visited lots of beaches which were all close by (although a car is needed to get to Nissi Beach) we either made use of the BBQ or took full advantage of some of the bars which were a stroll away.
The villa had all the amenities as stated in its description and some that aren't mentioned i.e. safe. The villa even had PS2 games, magazines and DVDS which may be useful especially for children. We didn't use these though because we were too busy experiencing the restaurants and bars in Pernera and Protaras.
If you fancy half a day's boat trip, give the yellow boat a try as it was only €10 each including a free drink and a number of swimming opportunities.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa as the whole party had a great stay. Just a shame we couldn't stay a little longer.
“This is a wonderful villa” This is a wonderful villa set in a lovely Cypriot village just out of the tourist area but close enough to the tourist area using the car. Only a short trip but because you have the car we tried different beaches, Konnis Bay our favourite, we also used some of the hotel pools and loungers. The beaches are wonderful though didn't travel that far to sit by a pool.The neighbours are lovely and nothing seemed too much trouble. The car gave us the bonus as we always hire a car on holiday so a free one was brilliant. The village has everything; bakery's to die for, a supermarket and sadly you can buy British newspapers from the kiosk, restaurants/bars which aren't too expensive. The villa was modern and to a very high standard, with Bosch appliances in the kitchen and 42" TV with dvd's if we had time to watch any. (Just like it says on the tin, or in this case the brochure). There are a couple of play areas yards from the villa and no cars other than the neighbours and the farmers so the children can play outside with no worries. If the villa had a pool that would be a bonus but the car more than made up for it. I would have no problems going again (or recommending it to family and friends) and we are looking to see if we can get back again in the near future.
“Amazing” I have just got back from staying at this fantastic villa. We stayed for a week from the 8th - 15th September 2011. We booked car hire through Europcar and drove ourselves to the villa. We flew into Paphos and it took approx 60 min to get to the villa due to not knowing the roads. The directions were brilliant and we found it with no problems. The villa has all mod cons and there was bread and milk in the fridge when we got there :-) There was also a nice bottle of wine which was a happy sight after the travelling.
The next morning we had out welcome meeting which was fantastic. We found out where the supermarket was (paps) and the best places to eat on the harbour.
The Villa was extremely clean and fresh when we arrived. There are French doors leading out to the back of the villa from the downstairs bedroom and there is also a balcony out of the master bedroom, with exceptional views of the peninsula and Latchi.
All local amenities are no more than a five min drive away and Paphos (when you get to know the roads) is only a 30-40 min drive away.
During our stay we went to the Baths of Aphrodite: http://www.ultimatecyprus.com/places-of-interest/26-baths-of-aphrodite which was brilliant. Not that much to see however, there is a nature trail you can walk along the coast to the rock. Aphrodite Bath was only about 10 mins drive.
We also went to the mosaics in Paphos (well worth a trip if your in the area) http://www.visitpafos.org.cy/Paphos_Mosaics.aspx
The pool was a lot larger than we imagined and was a great relief from the mid day heat. There is decking with tables and chairs which is great in the evenings for eating and taking it the views. The locals are very friendly and always talk to you and make you feel welcome. I would recommend Y&P if you are dining out in Latchi. We went here 3 times and had a great verity of meat and fish dishes.
Overall the villa and surrounding area is amazing! I will be booking again for next year….but for longer.
“Lovely Apartment” We have just had a 10 night stay at the Katie apartments,the one we stayed in was called Chloe.The apartment was lovely and clean when we arrived,there was everything you could need.Had a problem getting the tele to come on,but Lee sorted that for us.
There is a big balcony at the front with table and chairs for 4 plus 2 sunloungers.There is a small pool with gated access ,we stayed there 1day a real sun trap.
Lovely large shower with constant hot water.
It was about a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach at Green Bay,or a 20 minute walk to Fig Tree beach in Protaras.We hired a car and found some lovely beaches ,we especially loved the one at Ayia Thekla ,
There is a regular bus into protaras costing 1.50 euros each or a taxi is around 7euros.
There is aircon in bedroom and lounge which was definitely needed as it was red hot .wifi was also good.
We would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.Thankyou Alan for a lovely holiday.

“Tranquil haven” We stayed here for a short break in early May. The apartment is situated in a charming village with far reaching views across countryside and up into the mountains. It's village location gives you a holiday that makes you feel part of a community, rather than a bland hotel in a tourist district. Our trip coincided with Easter so it was lovely to see the village alive with activity and to listen to the morning church bells. The apartment is clean, surprisingly spacious and simply furnished and a perfect base for day trips, either to the beach or into the wider countryside.
“Ideal location” We stayed here for our my husbnads 50th, it was an excellent location. Ideal if you want everything withn a short drive but a quiet haven to come back to. Lots of info about the local area. It was a vert nice house, the picture gives a true reflection. We actually stayed in 2009 but the site does'nt allow an entry to be entered that far back, any way I just came accross it and thought it deserved a review. I would stay again if i returned to Cyprus.
“Great apartment on lovely complex” Stayed for three weeks in August, with my brother and niece, and had a lovely relaxing time.
Located around 20 mins walk from harbour which is perfect for the fun/relax balance, the apartment is beautifully furnished with everything that you could want. The pool area, with infinity pool, was beautiful with no 'bun fight' for sun loungers!
Being a residential complex, everyone is really friendly and full of local knowledge and info - anything you need to know, somebody will be able to help.
Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone - couples or families alike, something for everyone.
“Lovely Villa” This really is a lovely 4 star villa. Rav P who dealt with our booking was fantastic and dealt with all of my needy requests even before I arrived. The villa itself is lovely, the bedrooms were very comfortable and two of them shared a balcony with lovely sea views. We all got a good nights sleep as the mattresses were very comfortable. The bathrooms were adequate. The downstairs was really nice with big patio doors that opened up to a view of the pool and sea. The kitchen was very well equipped and there was a nice dinning table to sit 8. The downstairs annex is great for another family it had a separate twin bedroom and then a small lounge area with a big double bed in an alcove with their own separate bathroom. There was a slight musty smell on the stairs leading down but you could not smell it in the bedroom. The villa has a lovely big pool and there were nice sun loungers for us all with a couple of parasols. There is also a big table and chairs with a parasol outside. Coral Bay is a lovely resort for families and the villa is within easy walking distance of main strip with all the restaurants and bars and the beach. You do not need a car unless you want to travel further afield. There is a good bus service that will take you to Paphos town. I would definitely recommend this villa and would definitely book again the next time I visit Coral Bay.
“Brilliant holiday.” Sunrise Villa in Pernera,is situated ten minutes walk to the beach and ten minutes walk to the centre,the Villa as all the amenities you need,a kidney shape pool with the sunshine all day,it is so clean and tidy,we have enjoyed our stay there,so we have booked for next year,we would like to thank the owner Bill,for all his help,and Jo the manager for making it a wonderful holiday.
“A View To Die For...................” Just spent a week at Villa Azura (28 Sep - 05 Oct). The Villa was excellent - quite modern but every thing the holidaymaker would need; what made it special was the fantastic heated swimming pool (and yes we did need the heating as it got quite chilly towards the end of the day). The location above Latchi gave spectacular views of the bay but was within easy driving of the marina and restaurants.
One hour's driving was the bustling port of Paphos with an excellent selection of shops and restaurants - worth a visit. Another must do is a trip to the Troodos Mountains - spectacular views of the island.
And if you want something special - visit the Anassa Hotel for a drink or a meal - not cheap but stunning.
It has been 24 years since my wife and I spent our honeymoon in Cyprus and this was our first visit back - will it be our last? .... I doubt it!!!
“Beautiful Villa in the hills overlooking Polis” Rose Garden Villa is situated in the small friendly village of Perisisterona overlooking a valley and the sea with the town of Polis on the coast. It's rural setting made for a quiet and chilled out stay, but not too far from all the amenities you're likely to need in Polis. We found it clean, comfortable and central to many cycle routes in the hills and forest close by which we made use of a lot on mountain bikes we hired locally from Wheelie Cyprus.
John and Angela made us very welcome and are a lovely couple who couldn't do more for us. John was a bit upset we couldn't eat more of his apricots that were literally dropping off the trees daily - we ate tons though!!! There's also a lemon, nectarine and peach tree in the garden. Neighbours friendly and we got a cheery wave from people in the village on the way to the local shop to pick up bread every morning.
The swimming pool is great and was very clean. We had a visitor in the garden during our stay - a chameleon which was funny to watch as it changed colour regularly but didn't always get it quite right - 'Boy George' took up residence in the lemon tree.
The BBQ area was a little oasis and I spend quite a few hours at the end of the garden cooking with a cold beer in my hand in the shade of an olive tree.
I would recommend Rose Garden Villa to anyone who wants a quiet, laid back stay on the western end of Cyprus - we'll be going back..........
“Spacious, clean, and fully equiped with all necessities” We stayed at this villa with our 2 toddler boys, for 2 nights at the end of April, and wish we could have stayed longer.
The villa is very spacious, beautifully decorated and fully equipped with everything you can expect in a home, and much more! We were delighted to find full sets of plastic utensils in the kitchen for our toddlers to use, a gate for the stairs, as well as cots and high chairs in good condition. The villa is very well maintained, convenient and suitable for families with children.
The views from the balconies to the beach are wonderful, the pool and outside verandas are fully furnished and very well kept.
George, the owner, was very helpful and answered all our questions promptly, prior to our arrival, Thank you! We fully recommend this villa, and plan to stay there again!
“Magnificent apartment but get a hire car!” The apartment itself is very well presented and was immaculate upon my arrival. Emmanuel (the owner) was extremely helpful in helping me find my way around by calling me from the UK. The people that look after the place in Cyprus are very attentive and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need.
If you're going to Cyprus as a tourist though, it is pretty far from any of the areas you'd be interested in getting to, that's my only draw back on the place and bus links aren't very good but if you have a hire car you'll be fine.
“Wow - what a great vacation rental!” We stayed in three separate villas on our Summer vacation to Cyprus this year. All three were in different parts of the island. I think I might regret telling you all just how good this particular rental is. We're a large family of 5, we need space, we need a peaceful location and we want a nice villa that feels like a treat. This villa has it all.
The location is perfect. Polis is the only place to visit in Cyprus now. Its where the locals go for a break and there are relatively few foreign tourists. It has a bunch of good restaurants, some perfect beaches and the locals are really friendly too. This villa is located a 15 minute drive from polis, nestled in the beautiful mountains with views to the sea that are perfect. Its utterly peaceful but yet close enough to civilisation when you need it.
The villa itself has a great layout. There are three good sized bedrooms, with ac for the evening, and plenty of outside living space to enjoy too. The upstairs patio is a great place to see the sun go down each evening. The pool is great, well sized and well maintained. We really could not fault the villa at all.
We enjoyed our vacation in Cyprus but, until we stayed here, had thought we might not go back. The Lost Castle changed our minds for us. We would definitely go back.
“Fantastic location, very clean and management staff were extremely helpful” The villa was everything as expected in an ideal location just out of the busy nightlife close by (which was of walking distance) as a group of 7 friends and family who were in our mid twenties, we loved sunbathing by the pool and enjoying the hot tub/jacuzzi at night to wind down. When we wanted to go out and enjoy the night life the nearby restaurants and bars were very good, and with the local bus service being only €1 we hopped on and off into the busy scene of protaras where the bars and restraunts were endless.
The local supermarkets are expensive but the management staff gave us a lift to the nearby supermarket which was of normal value for money, they also gave great recommendations for bars, restraunts and sight seeing hot spots all of which we enjoyed.
We also made use of the BBQ provided which had a rotisserie device.
The beach was only a 10 minute walk and was really clean with lots of water activities to do including parasailing and hiring jet skis, which we all loved!
I would highly recommend the water park, great for all ages.
The weather was amazing! More than we could have hoped for, and everyone in and around the area were so kind and friendly. We will definitely be considering a return in the near future.
“Lovely accomodation in a well maintained and friendly complex with 2 good restaurants in walking distance.” An ideal place for a relaxing break without the hustle and bustle of a hotel complex. The accomdation was spotless and contained everything you would require for a self catering holiday. The complex itself was very clean, well maintained and was perfect for a relaxing holiday. The village itself has 2 good restaurants and there are plenty of others within a short drive.
“Fantastic apartment in a fantastic village” I have just returned from an amazing 7 night stay at this beautiful apartment. Originally I was only booked for 5 nights, however I couldn’t bare to leave such a beautiful place so extended my stay for a further 2 nights!
The apartment is very spacious, well equipped, and very comfortable. The outlook from both balconies is very pleasant and having one front and one back meant morning and afternoon sun could be equally enjoyed.
The grounds are very well maintained and workers were seen daily tending to the pool and gardens.
I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this lovely apartment to anyone (although I would like to keep it a secret so I can visit whenever I wish again!)
The owner responded very promptly to all queries and provided valuable information on local amenities, directions, ideas for places to visit etc.
The village of Peyia is simply delightful, plenty of delicious, traditional restaurants to chose from with incredibly friendly and attentive staff. The atmosphere everywhere I went in the village was so welcoming and warm.
Book with confidence......you will not be disappointed :)
“Fantastic location.” Bus stop right outside only a euro to go any where. And 2.50 euro for all day pass right uptill last bus in morning from Ayia napa at 4.30 am.
Beach close and water sports especially scuba diving great.
Lovely restaurants in perena. Would highly recommend the villa.
