''vWe would just like to say what a wonderful time we had at Astro Villa, in fact it was so good as you know we booked for next year after only three days!
The villa had everything we could have asked for and Georgios was very helpful if we needed anything, he would also stop by and bring us gifts of wine, grapes, lemon drizzle cake and Cypriot cheese. The amenities at the villa were great especially the pool table and the swimming pool was fantastic. One thing we did mention to Georgios was that he should maybe have a folder in the villa listing places to visit, trips or tours of interest, and possibly recommending restaurants in the area. He did seem to think it may be a good idea!
We are returning at the end of August 2019 and are really looking forward to it. The location of the villa was perfect for us, away from the hustle and bustle of the towns, but ideal distance from supermarkets and tavernas, bars and restaurants. The Santa Barbara beach restaurant was fantastic and the staff so very friendly and welcoming. Thanks for all your communication prior to and during our holiday it was second to none. We look forward to hopefully booking with you in the very near future. Kind Regards Ali, Debbie, Thalia and Nicky.''

''Fantastic villa with plenty of space for our party of 4 adults and am 18,17,16, 14 year old plus an 18 month old!. Quiet location with only the sound of the waves in earshot. Outstanding views of the sun setting across the med, from one of the 2 balconies. Enough entertainment for everyone, with the digital TV, small playground, pool and table tennis tables, with comfortable sun loungers for the adults!
Very quiet location, although good quality restaurants within walking distance. In an ideal location... Perhaps a convenience store within walking distance. Santa Barbara - great food and would recommend booking a table next to the beach, to watch the sunset with a meal. The local butcher (polis) also worth a visit for bbq time at the villa, amazing choice of meats. Latchi boat hire and Quad safari in Latchi (think it was STM) both amazing, with very helpful staff.
5 star service from you..... No issues Also 5 star locally, sat down with George and had a great conversation with him. He also brought us fresh plums on our first day, along with 2 bottles of white wine. George was a pleasure to meet. On behalf of my family... THANKYOU..''
