We were really excited about our stay at Villa Helena, after reading the reviews and looking at the photographs.
However these do not do the property justice. It is absolutely fantastic, so much space. There are five seperate seating areas outside, as well as a hammock and a barbecue. The upper terrace gives beautiful and stunning views of the sea and the shoreline, literally a stone's throw away and the fantastic sunsets. There is an extendable awning to shelter the main patio area from the sun. Inside there is a fully equipped kitchen, wi-if, and enough gadgets certainly to keep our kids amused. My son particularly liked the Bluetooth music player. Air-conditioning keeps everyone cool is the main living area and in the bedrooms. Bothe bedrooms give comfortable accommodation, with the main bedroom fitted with an en-suite bathroom.
Honestly I can't recommend this place highly enough and cannot fault it. Phil and Carol, who manage the property, were excellent and very helpful. If you're
Looking for holiday accommodation in Paphos for you and your family, look no further. You cannot possibly beat this.
Over the years we have stayed in many accommodations in various countries. We rate Villa Helena as one of the best. Very well equiped and furnished. Some of the doors locks and light switched were interesting! However, it is no good travelling to another country and expecting to find everything the same as in the UK.
Phil and Carol were very friendly and Phil did his best to help us with the television. The outside was also excellent. Lots of space and a brilliant BBQ.
For an avid reader this was paradise!. So many books. Forget the kindle and feel the paper.
It would be difficult to find a better villa.

Just arrived back from a week spent in the Villa Helena and wish I was back. The villa was very well equipped and spacious. We were there with another couple and our son and at no time felt on top of each other. The outside area is also very spacious with plenty of seating. The welcome pack on arrival was indeed very welcome given our late arrival. There were a lot of maps in the villa which we made good use of and we loved the rough guide. The villa feels very secure on a quiet complex and we had the pool to ourselves most of the time ( no getting up at silly o'clock to put your towel on a sunbed). All in all a lovely villa which I would love to return to.
this is a basic villa for the area-the pool was being maintained and refurbished on our arrival so no use for 3-4 days-basic home requirements-you need instructions for the all the many switches within the villa- it took us 3 days to understand the electrical components-meet and greet is more 'meet and grunt'-carol and phil were not very welcoming-we booked a week in april and had a very late check out on the Monday and they were charging 30 euros for the pleasure!! we stripped all the beds etc checked out at 11 am my recommendations are that carol and phil provide a manual on the air con and local supermarkets/diners-maybe more of a warm welcome-bottle of wine(even though we dont drink)
they greeted us via the back door!! we struggled to open the front door-all locks on doors were seized! they said the doors were seized so why not tell us on arrival-struggling with a seized door at 11 pm in the dark
This villa is everything it promised to be -- it is spacious, spotlessly clean & very well-equipped. We would especially recommend the villa to travellers in our own situation -- seeking some end-of-season sun, enjoying both comfort and peace & quiet.
We particularly appreciated the firm mattresses.
The complex (only about 15 villas) is well-maintained & was very quiet when we visited (we often had sole use of the communal pool).
The only negative about the villa was the non-availability of a WiFi password -- a little frustrating when we could see the router flashing whilst we were struggling with a flaky 3G signal.
Finally, whilst the "car not necessary" tag is accurate, we think that it should be pointed out that there is only one restaurant within 10 mins walk (Pentares) & no supermarket within walking distance. The nearest decent shop (confusingly called a supermarket, but a corner shop by UK standards) is J&R, and is 15-20 mins walk away.
That said, there is an excellent frequent & cheap bus service into both Paphos & Coral Bay, & the harbour area of the former is well worth a visit.
We have just returned from a blissful 2 wks at Villa Helena. The villa is furnished beautifully, the outside areas are very well kept and the pool is a lovely place to relax. We spent our first week with our 4 yr old son and then my parents joined us for the second week. We hired a car for the second week but the walk to the bus stop is not too much and it's a welcome stroll after a nice meal. Arcadia village is fairly quiet, a few people sunbathing around or in the pool but very laid back. We stayed in Villa Elmani 2 years ago which overlooks the pool and you can see the sunset, however, we all agree that we prefered Villa Helena. You can still see the sunset from the top terrace and hear the waves whilst enjoying an after dinner drink. We are hoping to return to this villa - sooner rather than later.
