Hello we are Hilary and Richard Ryder, we live in Keston Kent. We are both semi retired and enjoy travelling particularly spending time in our lovely home in Cyprus.
Hilary & Richard Ryder purchased this house in 2002
We have owned our house for since 2002, 2 years whilst it was a bit of mud being built. We bought it when we were on honeymoon in Cyprus, we had not intended to by a house although we had always browsed estate agents when on holiday. However on this occasion when we told the estate agent what we were looking for, a 3 bedroom house with sea and mountain views and a swimming pool, she said she thought they had the ideal plot. We went to the site and it was amazing the hills/mountains were behind us and the sea was down below as far as you could see and we could hear the sound of the waves lapping onto the shore. The house took two years to build and we were able to design everything we wanted to have.
We believe, and everyone who has stayed at the house agrees that it is the perfect location to chill out and have peaceful time looking at the sea. The large upper patio is a great eating out and entertaining space.
"Just to let you know we are back and to say we had a fantastic time, thank you. The villa was lovely just what we wanted. We got up at 5.30 one morning and went to the beach to see if we could find the turtles hatching and amazing we did " Niki Stone August 2012
"Just to say thank you again for the use of your villa. We had a wonderful time - the peace of Argaka was as lovely as ever!" Sue Sydney August 2012
"Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful Villa. Loved the views from the patio we spent hours of our holiday sitting and soaking up the sun." Yvonne McKinnell September 2012
"Just a quick e mail to say that we have just returned from a wonderful holiday at your villa. We had a lovely time and your villa was such a home from home we relaxed the minute we arrived until we had to leave." Jill Symonds October 2012
"Just to let you know we are back after a wonderful stay at the villa. Everything was perfect." Nikki & John Stone August 2013
Fabulous villa in we believe one of the best locations in Argaka. We were delighted on arrival and before the end of the holiday had booked it for the following year - we have never done this before in 9 years of holidaying in Cyprus. The villa was immaculately clean on our arrival and proved to be incredibly well resourced with plenty of spare towels, bed linen, and a very well equipped kitchen.
The villa has wonderful views down to the sea and beach which can be reached in a matter of minutes. There is a good variety of eating places locally and some great areas to explore.
Both the owner and Pat the manager proved to be extremely helpful and helped to make our holiday. They encouraged us to enjoy the villa and to treat it as our home whilst we were there. Communication with them was excellent. A joy from start to finish. Thank you.
Got home yesterday from a wonderful holiday at this property. We are a family of 4 with 2 young kids (11 and 8). If you are after a quiet location, away from crowds but near enough from shops and restaurants - then this is the place for you. The house has everything you need to self cater, spacious and very clean. 5 min walk from the beach (superb beach cafe/restaurant/bar, small watersports section and free sunbeds/showers) and a couple of really great, relaxed and attentive restaurants - we couldn't find anywhere to beat them. A load more are few miles drive away at Pomos or Latchi which we tried and loved. Great supermarket with everything you need in Polis and a bakery to die for just down the road from the villa. The local community are wonderful and we were made to feel very welcome. The owner was extremely good at answering all my questions quickly, the lady who managed the house in Cyprus was fabulous and I would absolutely recommend this place to all my friends and family if they were looking for a place to get away from the tourists. Will we come here again - definitely
Lovely villa with magnificent views. Clean and tidy with lots of kitchen paraphernalia so a real home from home. This is our second visit and will certainly return!
We had a very relaxing 2 weeks in this well appointed villa. Stunning panoramic views from the terrace, gentle stroll down to Santa Barbara for a beach side meal or drink. We have holidayed in the Argaka area several times and would not hesitate to return to the villa.
Spent 1 week at this villa in our favourite region of Cyprus. This modern accommodation was as expected from the description and had everything we could possibly want. We felt it represented excellent value for money, above all the location was near perfect. If its a peaceful relaxing holiday you want and this villa is available to book, then don't hesitate, BOOK. We certainly intend to return.
This is the second time I have been to this villa and once again had an amazing time. The property is exactly as described in the listing. There is a sea view and a mountain view. You can watch the perfect sunset from the terrace while enjoying dinner cooked on the new brick built BBQ. The propert was clean,tidy and comfortable . We were recommended to use the restaurant at the bottom of the road Santa Barbera and enjoyed our dinner sitting at tables on the beach watching the sunset. It's a great place for a relaxing holiday very peaceful and I would recommend this property to friends.
