About the property

Excellent Location, Quiet and Convenient. 200m to a sandy beach & close to Coral Bay shops & restaurants. No need for a hire car.

Sleeps 6 + Infant. Villa Marina is a stunning and very private 3 bed villa, perfectly located on a quiet cul de sac in a gated development. It is just 3 minutes walk to the best sandy beach in Coral Bay and within walking distance to all amenities.

It is beautifully furnished and offers luxury and comfort throughout, with great attention paid to every detail to ensure the perfect holiday. The open plan living/dining room is bright and spacious with flat screen Satellite TV and DVD player. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would expect to find at home. The master bedroom has a king size bed, luxury en-suite and a balcony with table and chairs to enjoy the fantastic sea views. All rooms have A/C and WIFI is available on request. If travelling with infants, a cot, highchair and Avent steriliser are provided free of charge.

The villa's tropical garden really sets it apart. It is particularly large as it is situated on a bold corner plot and is very private and secluded with tall hibiscus hedging around the perimeter. It is a place where you can relax and unwind on comfortable sun loungers with extra thick cushions, while your children play on the large area of lawn or in the private pool (free toys and inflatables also available). The pool is always kept in an immaculate condition and has a shallow and deep end to suit all swimming abilities. There are 2 large patios with comfortable furniture for alfresco dining and a large BBQ for the warm summer evenings. As the villa is on a cul de sac, there is no through traffic, so you can allow your children to run wild in the garden knowing they are safe.

Coral Bay is perfect for families as its beaches are safe and clean with warm shallow water. All the nearby restaurants are welcoming and very child friendly. The 5 star Coral Beach Hotel and the Thalassa Hotel are just a 3 minute walk where you can indulge in their wonderful Spa treatments. Horse riding, fishing, go-karing, tennis, scuba diving and other watersports are all available close by. Three excellent golf courses are within a 20 minute drive and Paphos Harbour and town centre with its historic harbour and museums is less than 15 minutes by car. Paphos airport is a 25 minute drive. Therefore, car hire is not necessary unless you wish to explore more of the Island. Car hire can be arranged on request. There is also a bus stop just opposite the entrance to the development with a regular bus service into Paphos town centre and Aphrodites Water Park. The famous Troodos mountain range is a 2 hour journey.

Villa Marina offers the perfect holiday for families and couples whether looking for an active holiday or a quiet one just by the pool. We make special arrangements for honeymoon couples to ensure their stay is truly memorable. We have fantastic property managers for whom nothing is too much trouble. If you have special requests or need particular assistance, please let me know and I will do my very best to accommodate you. The personal service that myself and my property managers strive to provide is what makes our guests come back to us year after year.

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 young 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 my domestic duties and looking after my children, 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 provide 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.

Marina Davies purchased this villa in 2007

Why Marina Davies chose Coral Bay Area

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!

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just come home from our second stay at the wonderful villa Marina and it was just as perfect as we remembered. As before, Marina made the whole process so easy and was amazingly helpful with all our enquiries.

The villa really does have a 'home from home' feel with everything we needed to help make a holiday with two young as easy as possible. Our 4 year old loved being in the pool every day and the grass area, which is so beautiful and unique, was great with a 7 month old. The location is just ideal being over the road to Corallia Beach and within easy access to local restaurants and Coral Bay - you really couldn't wish for more.

The property managers, Barry and Elaine, were fantastic and were really responsive and helpful with any questions.

Thank you for all the little touches, we look forward to our next visit.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I booked this Villa for 2 weeks, 10 days for my inlaws and their family to stay for my Wedding in Coral Bay, amd then 4 days for my now husband and I to stay for our honeymoon. Well my family completely loved it, they were so happy. Central to everything, 3 minutes walk to the Coral Beach Hotel were I was married 12 September 2012. Bus stop a couple of mins walk to go to Paphos and the service is every 15 mins. Brilliant! You do not need a car if you want to stay in this villa it is central to everything. When we arrived for our honeymoon we were greeted with Champagne from Marina the owner and the bed was made up lovely with a love heart from the towels! The pool area is huge, immaculately clean and the walled garden surrounding the pool and villa is stunning, it was my favourite! Definetly the best Villa in the lovely Estate. We didnt want to leave and I am desperate to go back. Marina the owner has thought of everything and her communication through the whole process from beginning to end has been fantastic! We will definetly be back at Villa Marina am hoping its next year for my first year anniversary! Thank you Marina your villa is a little gem! Love Angela and Neil 12/09/2012. xxxx

Owner's Response: Dear Angela and Neil, Thank you so much for your really lovely review, I am really touched. I am thrilled that you loved our villa and the little touches that I arranged to make your honeymoon special. It is such an important occasion in your lives that I wanted everything to be perfect for you. I am glad you enjoyed the pool and garden and of course you had beautiful weather to really make the most of it. I wish I was there now, (writing on a very wet and windy day in the UK!). We would love to welcome you both back for your anniversary next year when we would make your stay every bit as special as the first time. In the meantime, I wish you a happy and healthy 2012/2013 and judging by all the Christmas cards in the shops, perhaps I should take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas!! Thank you again for staying with us and for all your appreciation. Lots of love, Marina and Family xxxx

If Carlsberg did 5* Holiday Villas, this would be one of them!! Paul & Nadine, 2-9 Sept 2017

We spent a fantastic week in Villa Marina and it was exactly as it said on the tin!! Top notch, lovely and peaceful, in a fantastic location and the sun shone continuously for the whole week!! The sun beds were placed in "Position A" when we arrived and that's where they stayed!! We've stayed in many villas over the years and this was one of, if not, "The Best" we've stayed in. Unfortunately we were only there for a week, but never mind, cos we've already booked two weeks back in Villa Marina next year!! Only 49 weeks, 4 days and 14 hours till we fly out again, (I think) not that we're counting!! The villa was spotless when we arrived and we immediately felt at home, as that what it's like, a home from home but with a much better climate!! We met Barry (Marina's Villa manager) on the Sunday, who is a lovely fella and a mine of information if needed. We've stayed in Coral Bay before so knew most of the "hot spots" but he put us onto one gem of a restaurant, Oniro's By The Sea!! WOW!! What a setting and the food and drinks were fantastic and very reasonable!! Just turn right out of the estate, go straight ahead for 2k's and you'll see it signposted on the left. I won't say too much and spoil it, but it's well worth a visit!! A couple of local bars and restaurants within a five minute stroll and another 15 mins takes you to the strip which is a bit more livelier with more choice of bars and eateries. We saw "Boy George and Pink Elvis" one night in Blazing Saddles which was a great laugh, always some thing going on there and good for a giggle!! There's a couple of good restaurants on the strip, The Italian at the top and a New Tex Mex type place opposite which we love!! Plenty more to choose from, from Thai to take away Pizza, what ever takes your fancy!! For beach lovers you've got all of a 3 minute walk to the lovely beach. We had a look when we got there but it's not for us, the sand gets everywhere!! We love nothing more than a lazy brunch then spending the day by the gorgeous pool on the very comfortable sun beds, reading, listening to music, the occasional dip to cool off and chilling out ALL day!! If that's what floats your boat and it does ours, Villa Marina is the place to do it!! Marina herself, from the first point of contact 'till the day we left, was always available and very accommodating for all our questions and query's. Arnie once said, "I'll be back" and that's the biggest compliment we can give, cos "we will be back!" 5*s FOR DEFO!

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks of waking up in paradise every day the villa is absolutely stunning inside and out the space is just fantastic. Living space is huge lots of storage in the bedrooms and nice that every bedroom has a balcony to take in the amazing views. Garden was great for our 2 children aged 3 and 6 to play around in without worrying about them and the pool was the icing on the cake my 3 year old spent most of the day in there as it was the right height for him to stand in he can now swim on his own too. Villa is in a great location minutes to the best beach in paphos and the bus stops on the main road by the villa which we got everywhere buy a weekly ticket if u know you will be using it a lot works out cheaper. Lots of choice of restaurants our favourite was samisen celebrated my husbands 40th in there made it lots of fun. Phillpos supermarket was fantastic and supplied everything we needed at a good price and drove you back home with all your shopping which was great. Overall a fantastic holiday in a stunning villa thank you marina for sharing it with us would love to go back one day.

Owner's Response: Hello Sarah, Thank you for your wonderful review of your holiday and our villa. I am so happy that you all had such a lovely time, especially your children. it sounds like you found your way round very well and I am pleased that you made the most of the bus service as it is excellent and so cheap. I hadn't realised that Phillipos will actually drive you home with your shopping, thats fantastic and we must take advantage of this service when we are next in Cyprus! Thank you so much for choosing our villa for your holiday. We would love to welcome you back one day. In the meantime, I wish you and your family all the very best. xx

Just Beautiful. The perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is just the most wonderful I have ever stayed. It is exceptionally well maintained.

On booking the Owner could not have been more helpful or thoughtful of our needs. As we got married in Cyprus it made everything so much easier for us.

The villa is set quietly back from the bustle and the beaches a few minutes walk and the main strip (restaurants and bars) about 15 minutes stroll.

When can I go back!! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you, thank you for your really wonderful review, it has made my day! I am so happy that your wedding and honeymoon was everything you hoped it would be and I am so honoured that you chose our villa for such a special event. We do our best to make guests feel like the villa is their 'home away from home'. It sounds like you made the most of the surrounding area and beyond and I am pleased that the taxi firm were able to help you and your family. Having the Coral Beach Hotel so near by is such a bonus as it is lovely to pop over there for lunch and as you also mention, the spa is fantastic. I would like to thank you again for your wonderful comments and once again for choosing our villa. We would love to welcome you back again one day, perhaps for an anniversary celebration!! In the meantime, lots of love to you all, it has been such a pleasure getting to know you. Marina xxxx

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

WOW what a great month we have had at your beautiful villa. The weather has been great everyday and we used your lovely pool on many occasions. We have watched the flowers come into full bloom in your beautiful garden. We have been coming to Cyprus for 11 years and always stayed in a hotel, this holiday has been so different for us and we have loved it. Our daughter came out to stay with us for a week and loved it. I know she has told many of her friends what a fantastic villa she stayed in and has recommended it as a great place to stay. Barry and Elaine have been great and are such lovely people. It was good to be able to call them if we had any issues. Thank you for a great holiday and we hope to be back soon.
