Villa in Kissonerga, Nr. Coral Bay, Paphos, Cyprus - Peaceful Location, 15 Minutes Walk To The Beach
About Jill Dagha
Joe, my partner and I live and work in England. At the moment we only holiday in Cyprus, escaping from the pressures of work relaxing with all of our new found friends, in such a beautiful historic country. It has been less than 10 years ago that Joe and I first visited Cyprus, we fell in love with it immediately and dreamt of buying a house in readiness for our retirement 15 years hence. We went home having had an amazing holiday, but after a cooling off period of four months, we returned to fulfil our dream.
Jill Dagha purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Jill Dagha chose Kissonerga
We bought the villa off plan, the location was so important, we wanted to be a part of a village, but not far from the sea or the town. Kissonerga was perfect, we are literally 5 minutes walk from the village which has all the amenities that we need, including 2 great restaurants, a 15 minute relaxed stroll brings us to a stunning beach close to another outstanding restaurant. 5 minutes by car, you will find yourself at the very popular Coral Bay, 15 minutes drive in the opposite direction will find yourself at the picturesque Harbour in Paphos, surrounded by brightly painted fishing boats, and private yachts and all dominated by The Fort and the Mosaics and all only an hours drive to the Mountains of Troodos.
What makes this Villa unique
We took delivery of our villa in May ten years ago, and very soon discovered not only how much Cyprus and Paphos in particular had to offer, but also just how wonderful it was. To relax in the evenings alongside the pool, a glass of wine, soft music and succulent food from our barbecue, or to walk up the hill to the next village which is Tala, to sit in the Village Square and watch the world go by. It really is a taste of paradise

Wow stunning what more can I say.
Absolutely stunning villa, very clean, spacious and in a perfect quiet location, all the utensils you can imagine. Owner is very helpful and stayed in contact with us, I would recommend this villa to anybody. Convenient that the handy man Is next door who again also help and tops up the pool and keeps is looking nice and refresh for your stay. I will definitely be going again in 2020. I do not have a bad word to say.
The villa is extremely well equipped and is home from home.The outdoor area is well maintained and the pool is a welcome relief after a day looking around the many local villages.Hiring Jill’s car made things easier and it’s something I would recommend as it’s there waiting for you upon arrival.John the property manager lives next to the villa and although not required he was there if needed which was nice to know.The local village is a 10-15 min walk away where can be found a couple of local and a couple of catering more for the British taste eateries all of which we found very good but I would suggest a drive to one of the villages in the hills for something more traditional.Jill clearly has made a great effort to ensure the villa is to a very high standard and it was .Thanks again Jill.
We had a great time, fantastic villa, everything was perfect, having the car hire was a must because it was so hot this meant we could get around in comfort with air con, would definitely recommend and will like to go back again, great support from the lovely John & Pat who live next door, couldn’t do enough to help, fantastic
Fabulous. This villa lived up to all our expectations
From booking to our final day Jill and her villa made our whole Cyprus experience fabulous. The communication from Jill was prompt, extremely helpful and prepared us well for our visit. During our stay she also helped with any queries we had very quickly. What a lovely lady. The villa had everything it promised. Well equipped and all of the finishes were excellent within each room. The pool was an absolute blessing with temperatures above 30 every day. This was also cleaned well during our stay. We found the local village really handy walking distance for eating and fresh bread every day and the use of the car invaluable for exploring and supermarket trips. We would recommend ‘Seriani’ restaurant in Coral Bay for scrumptious seafood and ‘Sea You Beach Bar’ for very indulgent breakfast or dessert Crepes. We would definitely return here in the future and recommend for a relaxed holiday. Thank you Jill
Hello, Jackie, Heather, Jean, Elaine & Claire,
Wow, thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was great communicating with you all, I am so glad that you had such a fantastic time, I only hope that I hear from you again sometime in the future.
Delightful villa in Kissonerga
We returned to this villa a second time and found it even more enjoyable. It’s more like you’re staying in someone’s well loved home than renting a holiday home. It’s clean, comfortable and well cared for and communication from the owner was helpful. Any request or query was promptly responded to. We’ll definately return here again.
Thank you Lynn and Dennis for taking the time to write such a lovely review, I know you are very busy people.
I really look forward to hearing from you again in the near future.
A great place for a holiday.
Great villa, full of everything you could need. The kitchen full of all the things you have at home, which has been sadly lacking in other villas we have used (Not with Home Away, other villa operators).
Outside is the same, great pool that seem to stay very clean. load of seating outside and tables too.
Like the new shutters and the fly screens on all the ranch slider doors and windows ( this means no flies in the villa), couple this with the ceiling fans meant the villa stayed cool without using the Aircon.
John the guys that looks after you during the stay was very helpful and informative giving a number of recommendations for restaurants etc and they all proved excellent. We did have a couple of minor thing and John was instantly to fix and put right - Excellent John thanks.
Jill (the owner) was excellent too, both during the booking process, before our trip and our stay, just an email away.
A villa to be recommended.
Well Andy you have done me proud. We spend a lot of time and effort during the year, up-dating, replacing and improving the place for our Guests. Talking both on the phone and largely by email to yourselves, I realise that what we do is so important, it is wonderful to me to make my Guests feel not only on holiday but at home too.
You were a great Andy, and I only hope that we shall hear from you again sometime soon, I’m sure we will
