About Fiona Carlton-Shields
We fell in love with Trinity beach, it's so beautiful they sometimes hold weddings there. When we heard we could get a villa just 150 meters from the beach, we did not hesitate. We rent it out now but our end goal is to retire there, it's so peaceful and picturesque. We love the local bars and restaurants and the adorable little port where we get to watch the local fisherman and boat users go about there days.
Why Fiona Carlton-Shields chose Famagusta District
The biggest attraction has to be the private pool, outdoor BBQ and seating area, it's open and spacious. The interior has a real seaside feel to it and being open plan makes is very spacious. Large sofa's which are super comfortable and a large smart TV with satellite. Kitchen is fully equipped, it even has the BBQ utensils!

Love this villa
What a lovely villa this is. There is a bus stop close by and in walking distance are local shops, bakery, coffee shop and there's also a van selling food, drinks and ice creams at the beach which is only 5 minutes walk from the villa. THe property is perfect for the family, very clean and well maintained with everything you need to feel at home. The kitchen is very well stocked with all the utensils you need as we cooked most nights as we have young children. My husband BBQ's some nights too and that was nice to eat at the outdoor dining area. We felt very welcome and well looked after, thanks Fiona.
What a lovely review Alan, we are delighted you and the family had a good time, please come stay again any time!
Good place to stay with kids
The distance between property and the sea is about 250 m by foot. The way to the sea is easy because there aren't hills in this area.
The beach of the bay is sandy and shallow
It's hard to keep the house and the yard clean. A lot of sand flies from fields.
Long distance to the nearest market, better to have a car
The pool and stair are dangerous for kids. Should be careful
Beautiful Villa, excellent location!
What a lovely family friendly villa in the perfe4ct location. It is just 5 minutes walk to the most amazing beach. We were initially concerned at seeign a review sayign gettig to the beach was difficult, it's not, it's along a paved road and very easy. We highly recommend the ccoastal walks although town is a little far to walk to (50 minutes). We woudl suggest a car for sure as the island is worth investigating. THe villa itself is very clean and well presented. The BBQ area is nice too and there is planty of space for all the family to eat whether indoors or out whic is import as other villas we have stayed at house 6 but at a squeeze only. WE like this property and especially the location very much indeed.
The villa really was lovely, decorated to a high standard and fully furnished. However, I think the advert needs updating as the walkway to the beach is no longer there due to building works of new villas in the area. It also says that there will be a welcome pack for late arrivals but the rental company informed us this is no longer the case. Thankfully the transfer company took us to the local 24 hour bakery to get supplies for the children.
We couldn't get the TV to work so only had Netflix for the children.
I would also recommend that there be some sort of drainage for the air con pipe that just rests on the pathway to the pool. It leaves a large puddle that was really slippery, thankfully we only had one accident with our Son slipping.
It really is a beautiful place to stay though and we had the most amazing holiday
We were dissapointed to hear this feedback as we go to great lengths to ensure the property is as described. The walk through video is old but we feel it gives customers a real feel for the villa, both size and lay out. We have attempted to highlight this fact on the video and that the interior has been upgraded since that video. We personally have not been in the area for a few months so will have to look into the new buildings around and figure out the situation with the path to the beach, I agree, that can't have been easy with kids but there is usually a strait forward path direct to the beach. Please allow us time to investigate this and get back to you.
With regard the TV, we have a local management company we pay to assist with any issues such as this. Occasionally the SKY box needs to be re-booted in order to get all the channels and a call to the reps would have had them come sort this for you without any issue.
We have had an engineer look at why there was water outside by the air conditioning drain away pipe and it seems this was due to a hole in the pipe which has since been repaired.
I will personally go through the advert again to ensure these points are highlighted better.
Did not represent villa description or local area video potrayed by owners.
The villa description, video and contract terms and condition did not live up to expectations. On arrival no Welcome Pack and Rep to explain villa status. So that contract is not valid from day one. See list below of primary issues and problems;
- Air Conditioning unit continually leaked over patio area, safety hazard as was very slippy.
- No tumble dryer as included in villa facilities list.
- Daily visits from cockroaches which was not comfortable.
- Continual problems with the wifi and satellite TV reception throughout the 2 weeks.
- The easy access to the beach does not exist anymore as there is now a building site with fencing blocking the pathway as indicated in the owners video. This was a major problem as to access the beach required using the main road and crossing it on three sections. Not easy with small children and carrying all the usual beach items.
- The saving grace was the pool without which I think we would have left early to return to the UK.
The villa is obviously well used however I suggest a rethink on the beach access and ensuring that villa facilities match the listing provided in the adverts.
I can provide photographs of the items listed above if required.
Brillaint location, gorgeous beaches!
Booked direct with the owner using Paypal and made a good saving that way. The location is superb, 5 minutes walk from the beach and the route is buggy friendly. Very family ready villa with everything we needed including all the kids TV channels and board games, etc. Comfy sofas and beds, we will definitely be back next year, thanks Fiona for the excellent service :-)
So pleased you had a good time and we would welcome you back anytime at all :-)
Situated in a small peaceful enclave, this sunny villa is 150m away from the secluded beach of Trinity Beach, where clear waters gently lap onto its sandy shore. The local beach offers sun lounge & umbrella hire as well as a snack shack which also serves cocktails. On the other side of this bay is a small fishing area where locals bring in the morning catch. Open bottom boat cruises and catamaran tours depart from here daily. 15 minutes walk is the fabulous Kalifi bar restaurant which overlooks Malama beach and host Jazz on Thursdays in the high season. Shops and restaurants are in walking distance and Proteras is very near (4min drive or 7 Euros in a taxi) where you can experience a variety of cuisines, bars, pubs, clubs and entertainment, not forgetting the famously beautiful Fig Tree Bay. A five minute drive in the opposite direction, you will encounter the modern, municipal town of Paralimni where you can find many local, well stocked supermarkets, cafes and boutiques.
The well known resort of Ayia Napa is only a 15 minute drive along a rugged and beautiful coastline.
Once you get to Villa Serenity you will realise this is the perfect place to relax, let all your troubles slip away and have a calm and refreshing beach holiday.
Other Activities: Banana rides, coastal cruises, boats to Egypt daily, jet skiing, pedalos, snorkeling, aquarium 100m, paragliding, you name it!!
