The worst location down a graffiti covered, seedy back alley, the entrance door and hallway look like you have just walked into a doss house. The agent was abrupt and curt, she huffed and puffed over… More
Really, please, check out the photos and read the description: the pictures are taken by a photographer of Tripadvisor, and in the text all details are written, as well the apartment, being on the ground floor, is not very bright. We are in Venice, the buildings are very old and the typical streets ("calli") very tight.
These ladies received a very detailed email with, among other things, the explanation of our standard preparation of beds and where was asked to let we know in case they would have different needs and we would have provided. They didn't ask anything different, but at the arrival the preparation was not ok for them.
The occupants in the rooms above are tourists too... they change every 2-3 days.
About the cleaning I don't answer, this lady had the tooth poisoned!
Please check out the 4-5 bubble reviews. Thanks :-)
We have just come home from our second stay at the wonderful villa Marina and it was just as perfect as we remembered. As before, Marina made the whole process so easy and was amazingly helpful with … More
Thank you so much for your very kind review. It was lovely to welcome you back to your home in Cyprus and it was a pleasure to help you with all the extras for your little daughter, anything which helps make a stay with young children easier. I'm glad that both your children made the most of the garden - having grass makes all the difference as you can actually use the space you have and of course it is so much more comfortable to walk on than gravel. We bought the villa when our children were little so we knew exactly what other families would need to really enjoy their holiday.
Elaine and Barry are a real asset, they could not be more helpful and I am very lucky to have them.
Thank you again for staying with us and I look forward to welcoming you back to your Cypriot home soon!
Lots of love, Marina x

Having never booked a Villa before we weren't quite sure what to expect. We needn't have worried. Booking was a breeze. Marina made the process very simple and was extremely organised. The directi… More
Thank you for your lovely review. I am so pleased that the villa exceeded your expectations, particularly as you mention you had never stayed in a villa before. I am also very pleased that you found the booking process straight forward. As you mention, the pool does look lovely lit up at night and we are lucky to have a large corner plot which makes the garden very spacious, funny that you initially drove past it! Thank you again for staying with us. Hope to hear from you again one day. Marina xx

Dear Nick, Julia and Teenagers! Thank you so much for the simply wonderful review of your holiday at our villa. I am thrilled that you felt it was your home for the week and it's lovely that your children looked forward to returning 'home' at the end of the day, as you say, teenagers are not always easy to please. Coral Bay is indeed a fantastic place as it suits all ages and everything is in walking distance so I am sure this suited your teenage children perfectly. Barry and Elaine are fantastic at responding to difficulties very quickly so I am pleased that you were not inconvenienced at all when you locked yourselves out. Thank you again for your kind recommendation of our villa and to say 'it's the nicest place you have stayed in anywhere' is just wonderful and makes me very happy. I would love to hear from you again one day, in the meantime, I wish you and your family health and happiness and fingers crossed for some sunshine soon! Marina xx
