Overview

About the property

Villa Helena, Firemans Beach, Kapparis, Protaras, Famagusta region, Cyprus - 6 Minutes Walk To White Sandy Beaches Restaurants, Bars Shops, No Need For Car. Child friendly

Villa Helena has a beautiful private pool and patio area in an ideal location which offers a haven of tranquility whilst being close to white sandy beaches in front, with tavernas, restaurants, bars, shops and all amenities 300 metres behind. It has a high fence and lockable gate surrounding the whole villa for security and privacy. There is no through traffic as it is located in the exclusive Mimosa Villas which is a cul-de-sac development. It is a very private, fully air-conditioned 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (3 WC) villa in its own gated grounds with swimming pool and has been equipped to the high standard expected of a modern villa. It has a large en suite double bedroom, with king size bed. The twin bedded room can become a double bed room on request at no extra charge. The villa can sleep 6 as it has a fully sprung double sofa bed downstairs. It has 2 bathrooms plus an additional downstairs WC/cloakroom. All children's kit provided. There is a water cooler and filter machine.

Free full WiFi and Azatom iPod dock for iPhone 5+ or iPad. For your entertainment we have an Android box web TV system which gives you all the English and Russian sport, movies, and news channels.

New in 2016 is a pergola and new fences around the front patio, making a very private and secluded outdoor living space. There is new outdoor coffee table and chairs to match, enabling you to relax in all the available space of the villa at night and during the day. We have also just had the pool completely tiled in glass mosaic, with a new LED colour changing underwater pool light. We have installed LED uplighters in the garden to illuminate all the palms and trees, also colour changing mood lights for the patios, making it look very romantic in the evenings. There is a safe for your valuables. There is a welcome pack with first day essentials provided for your arrival.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Thank you Harry for a fantastic holiday. Villa Helena is immaculate, everything as described only even better than in the photos. A real home from home - we'll be booking again next time we come to Cyprus" Caroline & Andy Pritchard, Dorset. September 2011.



"We'd just like to say we've stayed in several villas from HL but non as good as this - so well maintained and equipped. We wanted privacy to chill out and that's exactly what we did in the back garden around your lovely secluded pool - we'll definitely be back.." Rob & Josie Manningham, Cheshire. June 2012.



"Thanks Harry , we had a great stay, everything was as you described. So peaceful yet the beach is just around the corner. Your information pack with the Taverna recommendations was spot on - especially the Thursday night one! So handy to have them all a short walk from the villa. The kids had a great time in the pool and they're already telling us to book again!" Debbie, Mike, Amy & Tom Bunting, Avon. August 2012.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Villa Helena's furnishings are not typical of a rental property as we have equipped it to a very high standard (thus the beds and sofas are nice and comfy!), because it is our intention (at some point), to make it our permanent home. If you're traveling with a baby or toddler we include all the equipment including a high chair, cot, changing mat, low stool and chair, potty and adaptive toilet seat, and a selection of toys, plastic plates, beakers, cutlery. Also foam finger guards for the doors. To stop children running into patio doors, they all have butterfly shaped child height window transfers (and also at adult height!) Downstairs there is a large open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area: The spacious lounge area has large triple patio doors opening onto the sunny, front patio with gazebo. There are two aircon units downstairs and two upstairs, which can also be used to boost heating in winter. Also a portable safe, modern convector heater is available. Outside: The double patio doors from the dining area open onto the beautiful sunny swimming pool area. We have a high wooden fence around the whole villa and a high lockable gate for security and privacy. Adjoining the pool is the sunny rear patio which is bordered by fencing and tropical shrubs. To the side are Cyprus trees and a lemon tree. There are four comfortable sunbeds with two small folding side tables, a large rectangular table to seat the six comfortable chairs, and an Outback gas barbecue with all utensils. The triple patio doors from the lounge area open onto the sunny porched front patio which continues to get sunlight through into the evenings even towards sunset, after which it has lighting. The front patio has a high fence, some border shrubs and a high wooden gate with security lock leading to the front door. There is a child's play house. Utility Room: An understairs cupboard off the kitchen contains the washing machine (the ironing board and steam iron are stored in the downstairs cloakroom & kitchen cupboard respectively). A folding drying frame can dry clothes rapidly outside in the Cypriot sun. Cleaning / Towels / Linen: Good quality white cotton bed linen and large white bathroom towels are included although we ask you to provide your own beach towel for outdoor use. Tea towels provided. For longer stays there is a mid stay clean available. Other: The dining area has double patio doors opening onto the swimming pool area. The large dining table seats six comfortably (+ high chair if needed!)

Lovely clean villa,with a great pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful first trip to Cyprus.Villa Helena was exactly as advertised ,very clean and well looked after .The pool at the villa was exceptionally clean and a great size our 2 girls spent many happy hours in the water with plenty of pool toys for company .

The booking process through David was easy and straight forward & we used the recommended empire Taxis for airport Transfers and for a couple of trips out , once to Protaras for the evening and once to a waterpark attached to hotel along the coast .

Kapparis itself has plenty of restaurants (Magazaki &Faliros being our favourites) and a few small supermarkets if you dont want to venture to far or hire a car .

We will certainly return to Cyprus and would definitely recommend this villa & area

Owner's Response: Hi, I am so glad you had a great time! We do try to make the villa special, with the mood lighting, and the private outdoor spaces. Each year we try to make it a little bit better. You would be very welcome to return in 2018. Empire is a great local company with their office in Kapparis, so they are great for attending to all your taxi and car hire needs. They have never let our guests down.

Great Villa

  • 4 of 5

Villa Helena was a lovely place to stay and spend our holiday. The Villa was clean and had everything you needed for a care free stay in Cyprus.

David was very helpful throughout the whole booking.

The Villa is child friendly, with lots of toys.

Shops are a walk away and there were a few nice restaurants and bars in walking distance. And if you wanted something a bit more lively, Protaras is about a 10 euro taxi ride away.

I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone who is looking for a nice relaxed time in Cyprus.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your review Elena. We are continually trying to make the guest experience even better. With the coloured mood lights and illuminated plants and trees, and the colour changing LED pool water light, and new pergola and fences at the front, we have made a very private romantic space for the evenings. With the children's facilities added, we have tried to ensure that parents can have a relaxed and care free holiday. Always call us to ask about any particular requirements for your holiday. We hope to welcome you back to Villa Helena soon!

Owner's Response: Hello John, thank you for your review. September is a great time of year in Cyprus, as it is still hot, but not the heat of July! We will always consider giving a discount on longer bookings. In the autumn months it is still warm, the sea has heated up enormously over the summer, and I have enjoyed many days on the beach at Fireman's Bay in November. I hope to welcome you back to Cyprus soon!

A wonderful base for a great holiday.

  • 4 of 5

I visited Villa Helena in September with two friends. The villa was spotless and well equipped and the pool area was well kept, very peaceful location!!

Would definitely recommend hiring a car and visiting the water park in Ayia Napa and the beaches in Protaras.

While there were plenty of bars and restaurants in Kapparis, it was very quiet (dont know if this was down to the time of year) so most evenings we got a taxi into Protaras for around €12, where it was much more lively and there was a bit more atmosphere.

Overall a great stay and good service from the owner. Would visit again if returning to Cyprus and would happily recommend to family and friends.

Thanks for a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your positive review. We are so glad you had a good holiday in Villa Helena. We try hard to keep standards high, and always receive praise for the cleanliness of the villa and our sparkling pool. For next season we are expanding the private patio areas and building a new pergola with comfy outdoor lounge furniture. In addition to Protaras there is Ayia Napa with it's world famous night life, only 15 minutes in a taxi from the villa.

Great villa, peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a lovely,relaxing 10 night stay at villa Helena. The villa is located in the peaceful area of Kapparis, and the live entertainment here is provided mainly Thursday to Sunday, however bars and restaurants are open every day providing very reasonably priced food and drinks. If you prefer, you can get a taxi to protarus from Kennedy Avenue for around 10 euros.

The villa has everything you need and more. There is a washing machine, chilled water dispenser, dishwasher, hairdryer, microwave, etc. There is a bathroom in each of the 2 bedrooms upstairs (which is great when getting 2 teens ready to go out!) and also a downstairs loo.

The pool area has the sun from first thing each morning, and the pool is shaded from about 2pm onwards meaning that the pool is warmed up by the morning sunshine, but stays warm and provides a very welcome relief from the late afternoon sun which stays over the lounger area until around 5pm! The pool guy came 3 times during our stay to clean the pool.

Chris and the staff from Empire rentals where brilliant for arranging our airport transfers, they even came and collected our luggage from the villa when we were leaving in the morning and stored it for us until we went to the airport in the evening.

David was extremely helpful, he made the booking process so simple and straightforward and answered my many questions quickly! And provided us with lots of useful information about the villa and local area.

We look forward to returning again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your review. We try to make every stay at our villas as happy and relaxing as possible for our guests. We pay close attention to detail, and are always seeking to upgrade the property, adding those extra touches to make your holidays special. For our next season in Villa Helena we are installing a new colour changing LED underwater pool light. We also have a new gas BBQ, and we are planning to rearrange the front fences completely so that there is more privacy and more patio area.

Coast/Beach:

You are spoilt for choice when using Villa Helena as your holiday base. The closest beach, just 6 minutes walk away, is Fireman's Beach. Malama Bay is another 8 minute walk south along the coast from Fireman's Beach and in between the two on the coastal path you'll find an array of secluded bays to choose from. Just 15 minutes away by car are the famous Fig Tree Bay with long white sandy beaches, water sports, gorgeous Nissi Beach and beautiful Connos Bay.

Travel:

Just 45 mins drive from Larnaca Airport (65km), Villa Helena is well placed and easy to find with clear instructions provided by the owner on booking. Flights to Paphos airport, just two hours drive away are also available. Car hire can be easily arranged before you travel, either for collection at the airport or in resort. If you do not want to hire a car and would like to stay in the villa and beach area, this is completely feasible as all you need is within walking distance. Transfers by taxi.

Distances:

Within 4 mins walk of restaurants, bars, plus supermarkets, bakery and off licence. The traditional market town of Paralimni is 2km away offering a blend of old and new with great places to eat and a Marks and Spencer's, Lidl and Carrefour. Pernera and Protaras are just 10 mins away and offer family entertainment whilst Ayia Napa, with its beaches, nightlife, Water World Water Park and traditional sights is just 15 minutes away by car. Villa Helena is an excellent base for relaxing or active holidays.

Further Details:

An extensive file containing details of a whole range of local attractions and facilities is available in the villa to help you decide how to spend your holiday. Local free publications, available in many local shops, are also invaluable for finding out what's going on in the area. In addition to relaxing by the private pool or on the beach you can enjoy a whole range of activities including the exhilarating slides at the famous water park, catamaran cruises around the coast, scuba diving (including try-dives for beginners), snorkelling and walking or cycling along the beautiful coastal pathways. We have been snorkelling in these crystal clear waters. It is so easy to just float motionless on the surface and watch shoals of pipefish going by! Villa Helena really is in an ideal location for your holiday - a beautiful, private, well-appointed villa with facilities and beaches nearby and also within easy reach of the neighbouring towns of Paralimni, Protaras and Ayia Napa offering you a wide range of sports and activities, restaurants and bars, shopping and sightseeing options to enjoy throughout your holiday. Kapparis is a quiet resort, yet has a great choice of restaurants and bars for those nights that you want to stay close to the villa. The villa is ideally located for those who want to escape and relax yet it is close enough to larger resorts to benefit from all that they have to offer should you want something more lively. The long white sandy beaches at Protaras, including the famous Fig Tree Bay, are just 10 minutes away by car. In addition to the wonderful beaches Protaras is a popular resort offering a wide choice of restaurants and bars, and family entertainment options including mini-golf, a sea aquarium and the evening entertainment at the popular Eden Square. Ayia Napa is situated just 5 minutes drive further along the coast, and offers a wide range of options on a larger and livelier scale.
