Luxury, spacious 3 bed villa in superb location within Adonis Village at the 5 star Aphrodite Hills resort, Paphos. The villa is located on the edge of the western ravine, and it is only 5 minutes walk to the main resort facilities such as the restaurants, bars, golf, tennis and spa. The resort is large (over 15km of roads) and many other villages or villa locations in the resort involve a long walk or a drive to get to the facilities (so make sure you check before you book!). The Adonis Village communal pool is only 30 seconds away, but completely hidden and child-safe as it is up a flight of steps. The pool gets the sun all day long from early morning into the evening. Plenty of sunbeds are available with your choice of sunny or shaded areas by the pool.
The villa is ideal for couples, families or groups. The three bedrooms are spacious - two doubles (with king size beds) and one triple (three single beds). The master bedroom can easily accommodate a cot (available at no extra charge), and two of the bedrooms have direct access to the terrace. There is also a double sofa bed in the downstairs hall which can accommodate an extra two guests if required (note that this is in the hall, not in a bedroom!).
In low season, we're happy to rent out for short stays such as weekends, so please do enquire. Also, we're happy to offer special deals for longer stays of 3 - 4 weeks.
On the ground floor, the spacious living/dining room opens directly onto a large terrace with spectacular views of the ravine and down to the sea - with a sofa, chairs and coffee table, an outdoor dining table and gas barbecue. There is a second terrace on the lower floor, with steps down to a third terrace which leads onto a small garden planted with mature shrubs.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need including fridge freezer, oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, blender, coffee maker and all the utensils and crockery items you would normally have at home.
The resort has won many awards including the Best Mediterranean Family Resort at the World Travel Awards 2013.
The resort boasts a 5 star Hotel (operated as a Sensatori Resort from Easter to October), a Cabell B. Robinson designed Par 71 Championship Golf Course, 3 hole Golf Academy, a Tennis Academy with 9 floodlit courts, a world renowned Spa, the Dream Team Soccer School, Horse Riding School, Gyms, Restaurants, Shops and Bars.
The villa itself is furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The extensive terracing allows for sunbathing and alfresco dining. The interior is spacious and well lit.
All 3 Bedrooms are large and have extensive wardrobe and drawer space. Both bathrooms have powerful showers. There is air conditioning and heating in every room. The communal pool is within 50m but is unobtrusive as it is up a flight of steps, so can’t actually be seen from the villa.
For stays of a week or longer we provide a complementary welcome pack of essentials such as bread, tea, coffee, spread, wine etc. For shorter stays, a welcome pack can be arranged if desired at a small extra cost.
The Hotel: The Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel offers an array of dining opportunities in the finest choice of settings, from an informal outdoor poolside grill to an exclusive indoor fine dining experience. The hotel's many bars equally tempt guests from the comforts of lounging indoors to the elegance of sipping champagne out on the deck, looking out at the sunset over the Mediterranean. The hotel features a 151-square-metre heated indoor / outdoor pool - for an extra charge, payable to the hotel this can be enjoyed by villa guests outside of the Easter - October period (during which time you can of course use the communal Adonis Village pool which is right beside the villa). Contemporary and elegant, the Hotel is set in an area steeped in culture, mythology and tradition.
The Retreat Spa and Wellness Centre: Voted the world’s third best resort spa by Homes Overseas Magazine, The Retreat was used by the British Olympic Team during their preparation for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. Set in fragrant gardens with refreshing water features, a heated swimming pool and hydro pools overlooking the Mediterranean. The Retreat takes its architectural inspiration from the great baths of Ancient Greece and Rome. At the heart of the Spa, stone colonnades run around a central courtyard, creating an authentic location for the theme. This suite of progressively warmer rooms and pools, tempered by cooling showers and a frigidarium, recreates the classic Roman bathing ritual to detoxify the system, stimulate the circulation and refresh the body. At the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy guests can enjoy playing & receive professional tuition and coaching. For the more active guests, there is a Cybex equipped gym with an extensive range of cardio and strength training equipment.
Cyprus’ climate makes it the perfect holiday villa rental location:
Long hot summers and short mild winters make Cyprus the perfect holiday destination, while the island's long history provides plenty of fascinating sites of interest for visitors to explore. An island of contrasts, the countryside of Cyprus extends from beautiful beaches to the splendour of the Troodos mountain range and the stunning Akamas National Park. The countryside is dotted with small villages where time seems to have stood still and old men sit outside coffee shops watching the world go by. You might even see a donkey tethered nearby. Head for the coast and you'll soon discover why Cyprus is one of the Europe's leading holiday destinations. Stunning beaches and excellent facilities make for a memorable vacation and few people can resist the temptation to dive into the cool blue of the Mediterranean. The Cypriot people are very outgoing and hospitable. Stop in any village and don't be surprised if you are invited to someone's house for coffee.

About Stephen McBurney
Stephen & Deirdre McBurney, originally from Ireland, now living and working in the UK. We have 5 kids all 14 and under.
Stephen McBurney purchased this Villa in 2013
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.

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.
Lovely villa, great location!
We really enjoyed our stay! The villa is just as good as the pictures and everything you need is provided. We have 2 young children so it was really great to have a cot/ highchair/ booster seat and plastic tableware available.
The villa location is fantastic, really close to the swimming pool and facilities Aphrodite Hills has to offer. The resort itself is lovely, lots of restaurants to choose from and a playground. We ate lunch at the hotel a couple of times and used the pool/ splash park there.
The spa is fantastic!! A real treat, you can use all the facilities for the day when booking a treatment.
Stephen the villa owner is really helpful, he sent us lots of information before we went and was easy to contact during our stay for any queries we had. The onsite management team are also available quickly if required.
We would not hesitate in recommending this villa!
Thanks for your great review! We really try to make sure there's everything in the villa you could need - we have 5 kids ourselves, so we know what it's like! If you'd like to stay again in the future, we'll be happy to offer a repeat guest discount.
The villa was beautifully presented, very well equipped with the private pool just a few steps from the villa. A thoroughly fantastic property!
Thanks for your great review. We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay and everything in the villa. Hope to see you again in the future!
Stephen & Deirdre.
Had a great stay at this apartment. Couldn't think of anything to complain about. Great location within in very easy reach of supermarkets and restaurants . Had my parents ( daren't say elderly) staying with us and having a bedroom on the same level as living space was very easy for them. Karl welcomed us and gave us a quick guide of air con etc. Would highly recommend it to others.
Return Visit to this Beautiful Villa
Our second time back at this lovely villa in the Aphrodite Hills Resort. It is a handy 15 mins drive from Paphos airport. The villa comes with access to a private swimming pool shared with a few other villas - during our visit, there were very few people using the pool and sometimes we had it completely to ourselves.
The resort has a hotel, several individual restaurants, a supermarket, a pub, a golf course, tennis courts, a fitness studio, gym and spa - all within a 5 - 10 min walk of the villa.
The service was very good again - there was a welcome pack provided for our arrival (milk, bread, butter, a bottle of wine etc) and tea, coffee and other drinks available for us. The friendly Karl is available to answer questions and help out if you need a hand with any of the equipment in the villa.
The amenities are excellent - this time I took a yoga class & tried a couple of spa treatments. I would recommend the class & the spa treatments. It is worth knowing that if you book a spa treatment, you have free access to the spa's sun terrace, the infinity pool, steam room, sauna etc for the rest of the day - so it's worth taking your swimming gear if you go to the spa.
We went out to eat a few times, retuning to Kouklia (we enjoyed lunch at Aspris' Taverna again), Mandria and Pissouri Bay. We also ate at the Italian restaurant and the kebab place on the resort and enjoyed both.
Things we like best:
- the villa is easy to reach from the airport. We were in the villa 45 mins after our plane landed in Cyprus (& that included picking up checked-in bags & our hire car).
- the villa is very well equipped - there's everything you can think of that you might need (a few examples: local guide books & maps, beach towels, tennis racquets, a library of paperbacks, an honesty bar).
- the villa balcony overlooking the peaceful valley - (the balcony gets the sun from early morning to about 2pm ish in May).
- it is easy to self cater if you want to. The villa kitchen is fully equipped and local supermarkets have very good fresh produce.
- very easy access to the pool from the villa.
I would definitely recommend this property to my friends. We will no doubt be back in the future.
Here are some of the nearby places and activites we've personally enjoyed... Tourist Attractions... 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 Akamas Peninsula 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.
