About Marina Davies
Hello! We are the Davies family and the owners of this lovely villa. My name is Marina and myself and my husband Huw, (Welsh spelling!), live in Surrey with our two children. We spent many wonderful holidays in Coral Bay before deciding to buy a villa and as I am half Cypriot, I have always had a close connection with Cyprus. I am a stay at home Mum, so aside from looking after my family, I devote my time to looking after our guests to ensure that they have the perfect holiday. I do this by providing a very personal service, catering to individual needs and requests. I want every guest to feel really special so nothing is too much trouble. When guests book our villa, I give them a very comprehensive guide to the area including restaurant recommendations and places to visit which is particularly useful if it is your first trip to Cyprus. I can also help with car hire if you wish to explore the island. Whatever your requirements, I am here to help you.
Marina Davies purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Marina Davies chose Coral Bay
We bought a villa in Coral Bay because it's perfect for families and has everything you could want from a holiday. The beaches are clean and sandy with warm shallow water making them perfectly safe for children. It is peaceful and relaxing, yet it's also a lively resort so offers the best of both worlds. If you like being active there are numerous water sports, scuba diving, tennis, golf, cycling etc, to name but a few or you can relax in one of the nearby spas. We also love Coral Bay because it retains the traditional characteristics of Cyprus with its grape vined tavernas and fishing villages but there are also more contemporary restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes. Coral Bay is also very accessible as Paphos Airport is just a 25 minute drive away. Coral Bay is our haven!
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is special for the following reasons. Firstly, the location is fantastic. It is situated on a very quiet and secluded cul de sac which is safe and traffic free. The fabulous sandy beach is directly opposite (3 mins walk) and the restaurants and cafes are also within walking distance so there is no need to hire a car. We have equipped the villa so that it feels like a real home from home with every comfort you could wish for and this is what my guests will often comment on. The garden is a really special feature of the villa as it is larger than most and mainly laid to lawn which is ideal for children. It is also very private as we have mature hibiscus hedging all around. We have very comfortable garden furniture for you to relax on and as the garden is so peaceful, you will soon be drifting off to sleep, just make sure you are wearing sun cream! There are, however, plenty of areas of shade, either under the umbrellas or palm trees. Our property managers are one in a million. They keep our villa in an immaculate condition and are so caring and attentive to our guests, nothing is too much trouble. They will be on hand to offer general help and advice while you are in Cyprus and have a 24 hour emergency help service. The guest file which is left in the villa also gives emergency phone numbers for all the hospitals, clinics, on-call doctors and 24 hour pharmacies in the area. We have many Wedding parties and honeymooners staying with us due to our close proximity to the Coral Beach Hotel (3 mins walk) and we ensure that their stay with us is extra special with lovely treats! We can also offer a range of massage and beauty treatments which are available on request within the comfort of the villa as well as a mobile hairstylist and gourmet catering for that special occasion. Please do ask to see our long list of guest testimonials. Finally, we would love to have the opportunity of welcoming you to our villa!

Amazing villa, fab location, perfect holiday
Communication with Marina is brilliant. The villa is perfect. Location is great. 3 min walk to the beautiful corallia beach. Beautiful restaurant, Porto Antico is 10 min walk (right at the end of the road) but also the option of getting a bus €1.50 per person to the coral bay strip which has loads of restaurants and bars to choose from. Another highly recommended restaurant is Orinos by the sea, this is a 5-10 drive and is well worth a visit but arrive early, I would guess about 5pm we arrived at 7 and had to wait for 40 minutes but it was worth it for the food, cocktails and views/sunset. We have never hired a car and manage fine but we did hire a buggy for the day from Golden rides opposite Phillipos supermarket, this was a great day out. Horse riding was also brilliant at George's Ranch, again a cab ride but only 10 mins. Paphos zoo was also a morning out and we all had an amazing time here. The free bus to the zoo runs from the end of the road. I highly recommend Villa Marina, Marina and Mikka were so helpful, we appreciated the welcome package, a lovely touch.
the villa is beautiful and spacious. The pool is so warm, I have never spent to much time in a pool. It has absolutely everything you could want and need it's very homely.Thank you and we hope we can return next year
Immaculate holiday villa with every home comfort
This is a beautiful, immaculate, spacious and well equipped villa with all mod cons and an extremely private well tended garden with pool within a short stroll of sandy beach, restaurants and the 615 bus into Coral Bay and Paphos. We particularly appreciated all the different seating, reclining and eating areas, inside and out making our stay very comfortable and relaxed. Thumbs up also to the wide steps into the pool and inflatables. Marina and her manager couldn't have been more helpful and I have no hesitation in recommending this villa for a wonderful hassle free holiday.
Fantastic holiday from beginning to end. Can't fault anything. Will definitely be returning.
Fab Family Holiday, Fab Villa!!!!
First of all Marina if I could give you 20 stars I would, your communication and effort is top notch, thank you!
The villa interior is spacious, nicely laid out, well equipped and very comfortable. Air conditioned bedrooms were a joy in the heat and the choice for a/c downstairs was the right thing.
Outside the villa is a lovely pool, sun beds + brolly, grassed area and various seating/dining areas (always somewhere in the shade). The kids were delighted with the selection of inflatables and also that there was enough space for them to kick a ball about (I think there may still be one in the hedge, sorry 😂�) The villa is private and the road outside quiet as it is access only. Also much to the kids delight an ice-cream van came around in the afternoon!! Normally we wouldn't spend many days at our villa but head to the beach - this holiday we were happy to relax at our pool, the location was so pleasant.
We used and enjoyed both the local beaches but found better snorkelling at Agios Georgios (turtle!!) and on the rocks below Aphrodite Baths. We loved DaVinci for Gelato, Yummie Yummie for take away kebab/pizza, Sea You for sunset and a hearty dinner. We also ate a few times at Seriani on the main strip - staff were friendly, good with the kids and the fish was fresh, well priced and bbq'd to perfection, yum! The big waterpark is a great day out but there are a few 'mini' waterparks at some of the Paphos hotels which are also great fun, especially if your kids are still a bit younger (mine are 7 & 9). We went to the one at King Evelthon Hotel.
All in all a great holiday with a real mix of fun things to do in the sun and a fantastic place to call our home for 2 weeks!! Thanks Marina!!
Amazing family holiday!
Just returned from an absolutely amazing family holiday from this beautiful villa. We’ve had such a blast and made some terrific family memories. Perfectly located to the main strip where you’ll find plenty of places to eat and drink, a beautiful beach and stunning scenery. By far the most private property on the complex too. Stunning garden with lovely smelling plants and flowers all beautifully maintained. Cannot rate this highly enough. Also Marina and her maintenance team were absolute stars throughout the whole process, nothing was too much trouble and they are always happy to help. You will
Not be disappointed! Thanks Marina, we hope to be back soon! Love Lauren, Reece and gang xx
Dear Lauren, Reece and Gang,
Thank you so much for your really wonderful review. I am so happy that your first trip to Cyprus was so enjoyable. It sounds like you made the most of all the local amenities and enjoyed the peace and seclusion of the garden. It’s so important to have your own private space when you’re on holiday and not to be overlooked. I was only to happy to be able to help with your special requests for Reece’s birthday celebrations, I wanted the occasion to be memorable for you all. You were fantastic guests and we would love to welcome you back one day. In the meantime, thank you again for your kind words and I wish you and your family my very best wishes. Marina xx

3 mins walk to the picturesque Corallia Beach, one of the best sandy beaches in Coral Bay, 5 mins walk to the main Coral Bay Beach.
Paphos airport is a 25 minute drive. Car hire is not necessary as all the facilities are within 5 - 10 minutes walk and there is a bus stop just across the road. You can get a bus from outside the development direct to the WaterPark and fares are very cheap. A taxi to the airport is approx E38.00 for a 4 seater and E48.00 for a 7 seater.
3 mins walk to the sandy beach and nearest bars, restaurants and supermarket. 2 mins walk to bus stop. 3 mins walk to the Five Star Coral Bay Beach Resort and Spa. 8-10 mins walk to Coral Bay main strip including shops, bars and restaurants. 15 mins drive to Paphos town centre and harbour with historic sites, bars and restaurants. 15-20 mins drive to Aphrodite water park. Beautiful coastal walk from the villa.
Rugged and unspoilt Akamas Peninsular (perfect for Quad biking) is only a 15 mins drive. Lara beach and Turtle beach 20 mins drive. 4x4 vehicle recommended for travelling this coastline.
