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 beach is just a 3/4 minute walk away and the picturesque fishing harbour of Latchi with its famous restaurants a 6 - 8 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 just a 35min drive away. And finally we have high speed internet and Box TV, a real hit with guests with c400 channels over several countries including UK and Russia and plenty of sports channels.

Location description from owner
The Paphos District
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 heritage list of cultural and natural treasures. Please note cycles, mopeds and cars can all be hired locally in Latchi.

Close by are the baths of Aphrodite with an exhilarating view over the bay.

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.

“Great villa for couples and families. The heated pool is fantastic”
Having rented several villas in Cyprus, we have to say that this is excellent value for money. The close location to Latchi (10 mins easy walk) makes it ideal for couples and families. the lovely beach is even closer and great for sea swimming or kids playing. We rented the villa the week after our wedding to relax after all the excitement and planning. It is so quiet and peaceful and a perfect place to unwind. We spent a lot of time in the pool as it had heating (optional). That made it so comfortable to just be in and as we were lucky to have really warm weather, it was so good to just bob around in to cool down. The villa in the kitchen is very well equipped and if you decided to cook, the high class Miele appliances are really good. For those wanting TV there is the biggest choice of channels we have ever had in Cyprus and we used this for the odd late night movie. Personally we love the restaurants in Kathikas, the Farm yard being our favourite (we challenge you to finish the king pork chop!) but the restaurants in Latchi are also great, Porto Latchi for fish is superb and Michael also provides a discount card. All in all, this is the best appointed villa we have stayed in and great value
Owner's reply: Hi Pete and Amy Thankyou very much for your kind words. From us all we wish you both a long and happy life together. We hope to welcome you both back one day Michael
“A very nice place to stay”
The villa is very nice. The position is really good- near the sea, near the restaurants, but also in a place that is relaxing and very pleasant. We all enjoyed the swimming pool and the garden. The house is a very good size- enough space for all of us, we were a group of 6.
Owner's reply: Thankyou Anna. Glad you all had a great time and hope to welcome you back in the future. Michael
“Excellent villa, fantastic location, wish we were still there!!!”
This is an excellent villa with everything you need and more. The location is fantastic, it is close enough to the local bars and restaurants to wander down in the evening (if you can pull yourself away from the wonderful pool!!) but has privacy. You can walk down to the local Latchi beach and marina with lots of lovely fish taverna's and shops. The villa has everything you could need and is maintained to a very high standard. Communication with the owner was faultless, we had every bit of information we could possibly need. Would definitely recommend this villa and hopefully we will visit again soon. Recommend hiring a boat for the day from the marina - great fun for snorkeling and the teenage boys loved the doughnuting.
Owner's reply: Hi Kay. Thankyou very much for a great review. Were so glad you all had a good time and we met your expectations. Welcome to return anytime with your family. Michael
“Fantastic Villa situated in a quiet unspoilt area of Cyprus - 'Relaxed, get away from it all holiday'”
This villa has everything you could possibly need for your stay, lots of attention to detail for all the little items that are sometimes lacking in other places we have stayed. Everything has been very well thought out. From corkscrew to hairdryer, ample crockery and cutlery. BBQ, heated pool, open fireplace for colder months, comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Fantastic family villa that exceeded our expectations and would highly recommend. The villa is situated within a 10 minute easy stroll to the harbour area which has a variety of restaurants to choose from and a couple of small supermarkets for the essentials. Latchi is a small friendly place to visit for a get away from it all holiday with a very relaxed atmosphere - this is not the place for nightclubbing in to the small hours. We very much enjoyed our two week stay and would like to stay again in the future. Michael the owner and Mark who looks after the villa for him are both very professional in their roles and gave us lots of information and advice for our stay which we found invaluable. This was our first holiday abroad that was not booked as a travel agent package and we found the whole process a very simple one and would definitely do it again.
Owner's reply: Hi Tracey That is marvellous to think that you chose me from the usual way you book your holidays and have built confidence already in the process. We hope to welcome you back in the future. I have forwarded your comments onto Mark
Villa Ponciana surpassed all our expectations. If you have ever had any worries about booking a villa you have not seen (except from a few photos on the internet) then rest assured you will be nothing less than thrilled with the whole booking process and accommodation provided here. The owner is thorough and meticulous to detail with ensuring you have everything you need before your holiday; from an initial phone call to a personalised welcome pack. He also has an extremely helpful and knowledgable property manager to assist you during your holiday, if required. The villa is light, modern, clean and extremely well equipped. The pool is large (and heated if required) and surrounded by sun beds and pool lights and a delightful well kept garden brimming with flowers and colour. There are beautiful sea views from the upstairs balconies. There is a gorgeous terrace raised up above the pool for a delicious Cyprus breakfast - our preferred option was Greek yogurt, honey and pomegranates, which are plentiful in the hedgerows in October. The beach and nearest taverna are a 5 minute stroll away and the harbour with its many restaurants and tavernas is 10 mins away (at 5 year old pace). The villa is extremely peaceful at the end of a quiet road with fields all around, which were occasionally filled with the exotic sound of goat's bells as the goats came out to graze. We did not ever see any neighbours on the other side so did not ever have to worry about how much noise our chidren were making splashing around and enjoying the pool. With a car there is so much to see within easy reach- Latchi watersports is 10 mins in the car with pedallos, banana boat, and waterskiing. If you travel 25 mins east along the coast you reach beautiful Pomos with another lovely harbour and excellent snorkelling which our children loved. There are water slide parks galore in Paphos (35 mins drive) which are very exciting for young children. We had an amazing holiday at Villa Poinciana and would definitely return.
Owner's reply: Thankyou Claire for such a great review. We always strive to make the booking process as honest and as efficient as possible. We have made many improvments as a basis of this years guests remarks and they are now all in place for next year. We hope to welcome you back in the future Michael
“Fantastic Villa Excellent Location”
Dismiss any doubts you may have about dealing direct with an owner. Michael's friendly and professional approach is second to none. The Villa itself is fabulous in every way, equipped to a very high standard, fantastic location with stunning views, the garden, pool and outside area the perfect place to "chill". Locally the attention to detail is superbly managed by Mark. Overall the entire experience from first contact to handing back the keys at the end of a fantastic holiday was a 10/10.
Owner's reply: Thankyou Melanie and Martyn. glad you had a really good stay. We strive for perfection, always something we can do better. We hope to welcome you back at some point in the future Rgds
“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.
Owner's reply: 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 Michael
“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
Owner's reply: 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.
Owner's reply: 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.
Owner's reply: Thanks Chris. You complete the end of the 2013 very successful season. Thanks again
