Why Stephen McBurney chose Aphrodite Hills
After holidaying on the resort in another nearby villa, we found it worked perfectly for us as a family and clearly had everything we needed to keep children and adults happy for many years to come. We viewed this property and immediately knew it was the one for us, due to its spaciousness, great location and views.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is spacious and brilliantly located, just a few steps from a great communal pool (that rarely gets busy even in peak season). It's only a short walk (5 mins) to all the resort facilities, which was important for us as we didn't want to have to drive down to the pubs or restaurants. We've also explored lots of the local restaurants and can provide some recommendations if desired. We've made sure our villa is fully equipped to make your stay easier, so you'll find all the utensils, cleaning materials etc that you could possibly need. We've also replaced all the windows and doors with top quality German thermo-insulated double glazing - this means the villa is much easier to cool in summer or heat in winter.

Can’t fault the villa that we stayed in. We taxied it from the airport and this was 15mins. It may be an idea to get the true location on your phone for google maps just as back up for the driver.
The cleanliness was spot on when we arrived and the system used for the entrance key works as it can be available to others who are coming or going at differing times.
All that you need is present in the villa including info for what to do and where to visit. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are great. The kitchen has all you need concerning appliances etc. The outside space is spacious and well furnished and is shaded and cool in the afternoon/evening. The buses aren’t bad and you can get a timetable from the golf centre reception. They are cheap and punctual. The 631 goes to Kouklia then onto Paphos. Ask the driver to let you know when you’re approaching the Kouklia bus stop(it’s 10mins away and up the hill off the main road) It’s a five min walk from the bus stop. Pissouri is lovely and well worth a visit. If you go out of school holidays you’ll have the pool virtually to yourself. It’s a five min walk to the village square which has various restaurants and a couple of bars but you’ll pay a bit more than at the villages. If you hire a car go to a supermarket out of the way a bit as it will be a lot cheaper.
All said and done I’d definitely recommend the villa.
Glad you enjoyed your stay Des. Thanks for your great review!
Would highly recommend this villa. The villa was well furnished and it was a pleasure to sit on the balcony taking in the views. It's clear the owners have given great thought and care to make sure everyone's stay is the best it can be, from the detailed instructions, to the kitchen equipment and general setup. Everything was lovely and clean. It's also located in one of the best spots at Aphrodite Hills, walking distance to the amenities, near the pool and not overlooked. Stephen was very quick to come back to us if we had a query about anything. One of the best properties we have ever stayed in !
Spacious, well located, equiped, clean, ok with kids
We really loved our stay here. I was surprised how well equipped the property was!
We were 6 adults and 2 kids (travel cot was available for our small one). Our parents were picked up at the airport by a taxi driver (Stephen recommended us Drivenet Cyprus / Cyprus Taxi, 6 seat car, 120 EUR), we (the rest) had a rental car (driving on the left was adrenaline). It was easy to find the Vila. Even thought, the traffic directional signs could be more consistent (Limassol=Lemesos).
I appreciated that the staircase was secured with the bars (only on the top), there was also a kid chair adapter and plenty of toys and equipment to the water for the kids. The pool is super close, but it was cold (but always clean).
In the kitchen we found everything that we needed and even more. There was something in every drawer in the Vila. Everyday we discovered something new.
I was grateful that there were beach towels available (those take a lot of space). The bed linen and towels were changed in the middle of the stay.
If we had problem, we either contacted Stephen directly or we got help via Aphrodite rentals. The shop/supermarket is about 10 minutes away always opened, little bit more expensive then in the city (we went usually shopping to Pissouri). In the village square there is really everything we needed + playground, minigolf, etc. Sadly, the "water playground" (small waterpark) is only for the hotel guest. We could not pay for the entrance even if we wanted.
There was a problem with the water twice during our stay (we did not have to report it, somebody always came), lasting up to 5 h (water was not running).
The closest beach is not really a beach, but more just a sea shore. We then went to Aphrodite Rock or Pissouri (closest). I liked Kourion beach. And Latsi beach (close to Akamas Peninsula) was also nice. We did not have time for Coral Bay (which should be sandy beach unlike those mentioned above).
There is a bus 631 going to Aphrodite Rock and Paphos. There are no real timetables, only times when the bus leaves the two end station are available (and the total fare time. So one knows only approximately when the bus comes. From Aphrodites's Rock to Aphrodite's Hill it is around 5 minutes, 1.5 EUR per ride). There wasn't any kind of shuttle bus, and we did not find any organized day trips - but everything is available in Paphos.
We visited the Paphos water park and went for turtle watching. Both great.
We just loved it here!
Fabulous property, extremely well equipped
We had a wonderful week here. The villa is beautifully presented and spacious, and probably the most well equipped place we have stayed from kitchen equipment to buckets and spades! The views from either of the balconies are lovely, the six of us spent many evenings sitting outside watching the sunset. And the pool for this collection of villas is right outside the front door of this one... during our week in October we almost always had the pool completely to ourselves. The infirmation packs from the owners were really exceptional and we were impressed by the restaurants we went to based on their recommendations. All in all a great stay.
Thanks Claire for your fantastic review! The balcony views were one of the main reasons we bought the villa to begin with.
Perfect villa in great location
We recently stayed here for 2 weeks with our 2 teenage boys, and were more then happy with it. The villa is spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped Stephen and Deirdre have thought of everything.It is located in a great area within the resort, very close to the pool and within a short stroll to the village. The villa is spacious and has lovely big balconies with great views of the valley. The resort itself is attractively laid out and has a variety of restaurants , bars and a supermarket . There is also a Very nice spa . I would highly recommend This villa and the area for a very enjoyable holiday. !
Thanks Ciara for your great review. Glad you and your family enjoyed our villa, all its facilities and close proximity to the pool and the hotel, Village Square restaurants, supermarket, golf club and spa.
We'd love to welcome you back again some time.
Here are some of the nearby places and activites we've personally enjoyed...
Tombs of the Kings (World Heritage Site), Paphos
Paphos Old Town - visit the market
Paphos Castle - right at the harbour in Kato Paphos
Paphos Bird Park
Fasouri Watermania Waterpark (45 mins away, you can book a bus from the resort), great for kids and adults!
Rock of Aphrodite
Troodos mountains and its wonderful monasteries/churches
Latchi harbour (about an hour away)
Birthplace of Aphrodite
Pissouri Bay beach (10 mins away, this is a great sandy beach with lots of watersports and great restaurants)
If you're looking for great local restaurants off the resort, try visiting Kouklia, Pissouri or Mandria villages which have a great choice and are only a 5 to 10 minute drive away.
