This is a very pretty, well appointed 3 bedroomed villa with views of and within 50 meters of a lovely white sanded beach. Every room has a sea view. Part of a small, peaceful privately owned estate, yet it is only 8 kms from Ayia Napa and 6kms from Nissi Resorts. Waterworld is only minutes away. It's ideal for families, friends or couples looking for the peace and quiet of uncrowded beaches, the feel of a home away from home and yet within easy access of 'resort action' when desired. There are two local restaurants one of which is within walking distance. For the adventurous there is a Cypriot clay oven on the terrace as well as a gas barbeque. The Villa has a contemporary light and bright feel to it having been redecorated and refurbished very recently. It has an open fireplace for cooler winter evenings unusual in Cyprus properties.
3 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom. Sleeps 6 adults/children and 2 infants

About Bill Scarth
I've known Cyprus on and off since 1959, although as I was only 1 years old can't remember much of that time!
Bill Scarth purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Bill Scarth chose Sotira
I wanted a beach side villa and this is as close as you can get. It has such a nice feel to the place, as son as walked through the door I knew it was the one.

Perfect holiday home
This house is beautiful and in a perfect spot. There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and another one with two single beds plus a mezzanine with a double bed. There were three of us - one in each room and me on the mezzanine. The mezzanine opens up to a balcony with sun beds and there is a window which has a direct view of the sea. I loved sleeping here with an open window whilst listening to waves outside.
The house is based in a quiet close, second line from Sirens beach and with direct views of the sea from the terrace. It is well equipped with everything you need including a dish washer and a washing machine. This was a perfect base for our active holiday. We left the house in the morning after breakfast and explored different parts of the island and beaches only to return home in the evening to the peace and tranquility of the villa. Sirens beach doesn’t have a great entrance (it’s quite stony) but Agia Thekla is less then 10 min walk - it’s nice and sandy with a cafe, restaurant and loungers. The closest supermarket is about 10 min walk as well.
We had a car and I think car is a good idea when staying here. If you like to go out, Ayia Napa (and Nissi beach) are about 15 min drive away - this is the epicentre of activity with lots of shops, bars, restaurants etc.
Drive from Larnaca airport took around 35 min.
Overall, loved the place and would happily return here again!
Many thanks for your positive and informative review. I'm so glad you and your family had a lovely holiday and I look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best wishes. Bill.
The beautiful and very comfortable villa
It was very splendid time, becouse the house is very comfortable for family with children, the place is very calm and quite. And many thanks Sara for all!
Thanks for the positive review Tatiana, I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. You are most welcome any time. Best wishes. Bill
This pleasant villa is situated 5 minutes away from the lively town of Aiya Napa but it is on a very quiet and friendly development of just about 20 villas, literally on the beach. It is spotless and expertly managed (we had a minor problem with one of the electric switches; this was sorted out within 2 hours). On arrival we found a very useful welcome pack and had a breakfast on the terrace with a sea view with toast, jam and omelette instead for searching for local shops (although there is a well-stocked local shop nearby). It is well equipped with kitchen gadgets and children's toys.
There is plenty to do locally and a peaceful beach just on your door step. Very relaxing and pleasant holiday. Looking forward to going back.
Many thanks, I'm glad you had such a good holiday and hope to see you back soon :)
We had a lovely time in may. The house is very nice and everything you need is available. With young children it is safe that garden has a wall. The beach is really close. We advice a car, so you can see some of the Isand. Hope to return some time.
Very nice villa!
Me, my boyfriend, my sister and her husband we had a great time in this very nice villa.
Alakati complex it is very apropriate for peaceful and relaxing holiday, it is about 15 minutes drive from Ayia Napa for those who love action, clubs, bars, pubs and restaurants, the fantastic WaterWorld Park it is less than 10 minutes drive away.
We have found everything that we need in the villa with one small exception - European plugs! In the whole villa there were only english plugs and the chargers for mobiles, for the cameras that we broughts along were useless. Anyway, we have managed to buy a transformer plug.
We would love for sure to come back here in the years to come.
Das perfekte Haus für uns in toller Nachbarschaft ein paar Meter vom ruhigen Strand... toll!!
Wir haben im Juli 2018 hier knapp 2 Wochen zu viert verbracht. Meine Frau und ich haben uns mit meinen Schwiegereltern zusammen äusserst wohl gefühlt in diesem tollen Haus. Die Managerin Sara macht wirklich einen absolut tollen Job hier. Und Bill's Haus ist so toll, dass wir es glatt kaufen würden. Es ist alles tiptop sauber, sämtliche nötigen Geräte in der Küche sind vorhanden, die Klimageräte funktionieren tiptop, und die beiden sympathischen Nachbarn Ninos und Pepa sind einfach herrlich. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl in ihrer Nachbarschaft. Wir fühlten uns hier wie in einem zweiten Zuhause. Zweimal die Woche kommt der Gemüse-Verkäufer vorbei, und das Restaurant Zafiri ist gemütlich zu Fuss zu erreichen. Dort ist auch der "kleine" Supermarkt äusserst gut ausgestattet, mehr braucht man eigentlich nicht. Für uns war auch der rund 60 Meter vom Haus entfernte Strand perfekt. Dieser war fast immer LEER. Der Einstieg in's Wasser ist leicht steinig und flach, Badeschuhe sind zu empfehlen, aber der Strand selber ist schöner Sand, und zum Schwimmen und Schnorcheln ist es perfekt. Für 6 Personen wäre es vielleicht etwas knapp mit einer Nasszelle im Haus (1x WC/Dusche/Bad), aber es hat ja noch die Aussendusche.
Vielen Dank an Bill, dass wir hier so schöne Tage in diesem tollen Haus verbringen konnten. Und vielen Dank an Sara und ihre Reinigungshilfe, die uns nach einer Woche frische Wäsche gebracht haben, und das Haus tiptop gereinigt haben.
Many thanks to Bill, Sara and Ninos and Pepa, and sunny greetings from Switzerland.
