Villa near Sea Caves/totally private/set in mature gardens/quality furnishings inside and out
I hope you enjoy staying in my villa as much as I do. I absolutely love it as it is so peaceful and warm and easy to relax. When I stay here I cant wait to get up in the morning to sit in the morning sun to admire the views. I have owned the villa since it was built and my partner and I designed the villa ourselves and the garden. It is a very friendly villa with lots of natural light. The fully opening sliding living room doors brings the garden into the villa and shows the panoramic sea views to perfection.
Deborah purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Deborah chose Peyia
This villa is in the perfect location for sea views and peace and tranquility and not too close to the hustle and bustle of Paphos town or Coral Bay but close enough for ease of access. It is very near to the Akamas too as I enjoy nature. It is a peaceful area enjoying a cooling sea breeze and glorious sun sets. It is possible to hear the sea breaking on the coast when the weather gets rough!From this villa, you can either go native and drive to see the turtles on Laras Beach (or hope to) or just crash by the pool and sleep all your stress of UK living away!If a sudden eating fit occurs you are only 10 mins from the restaurants of Coral Bay or 5 mins walk to choice of two restaurants (one English serving English food or the Australian run Alessi 100 yards further. Both located quarter of a kilometre from the villa. I tried to furnish my villa to accommodate my own holidays too and hope that my guests find it also well equipped compared to other villas available. Children love the 12m x 6 m pool and also the African thatched Hut that keeps the sun out by at least 10 degrees cooler when the sun is at its zenith. All facilities are as one would hope for in a rental but are very often lacking. My villa was designed as my home from home and everything has been done with luxury and quality foremost. I know my guests will not be disappointed.
What makes this Villa unique
On walking through the front door my holiday always begins immediately. The sun, the sea, the palm trees all setting off the crystal clear pool with the warm breezes of Cyprus is what this villa is all about for me. It was designed with entertaining in mind and the comfortable stools and dining area under the thatched pergola adds to the holiday atmosphere.. Low level garden lighting ensures a magical experience and brings the garden to life at night.It is best to hire a car for trips to Coral Bay but there is a bus stop within 2 minutes walk from the villa on the main road which goes to Coral Bay and Paphos or St George.

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
What a villa. Prefect location, great view, stylish interior, comfortable furniture and great managers. We had an issue with an air con unit on the Saturday morning and engineers were there within 2 hours of contacting the managers - what a service, especially for a weekend.
We have been going to Cyprus and renting villas for years but this is the first time ever we have booked to come back to the same one next year.
There was some building work going on close by but we didn't let a bit of noise get in the way of the best time I have had in years, (and it didnt go on for that long anyway).
Having said all that, please don't book this villa in the summer as we want it free for us every year ;)
July 2019 visit
First visit to Cyprus. We had a wonderful holiday. Villa was exactly as described. Need a car if you intend to leave villa to explore. Deborah a great host. Jane and Colby efficient and effective as property managers. We will definitely return at some point.
Always good to receive a positive review and I appreciate your time in writing one too. So pleased my new property managers are looking after my guests to a high standard and thank you for being excellent guests and you are welcome back anytime.
Sea caves villa
Beautiful villa with amazing views to the sea with stunning pool and gardens. Sadly the first week was the same as the previous review of noise and dust from the building site next door. We had to wipe everything down every day due to the dust and there wasn’t a mid stay clean just linen change.
The second week was a little better with only a small amount of noise and no rock splitter working. The builders only worked till lunchtime on this week.
I am sorry to hear that dust was a problem during your stay and appreciate you need to add this to your review. Since your stay the works have calmed down and my recent guests have enjoyed their stay with little disturbance. There is an option to have a mid stay clean but this is organised directly with my property managers on the Booking Form. In hindsight in view of the dust problem, if reported to Jane or myself, I could have organised a dust clean mid stay for you. But point taken on board for future possible dust invasions. Thank you for being excellent guests.
Sunny Escape To A Lovely Villa
We have just returned from an 11 night stay at the villa. Firstly let us say the villa is absolutely beautiful, with lovely views, pool and garden and it exceeded our expectations. We were a party of six adults, there is plenty of space around the pool and plenty of loungers so you don't have to be on top of one another. We ate inside and outside and used the BBQ, sitting at the bar in the early evening was lovely. One of our party is very keen on their yoga and went down to the garden area to practice daily where she could look across the view and be undisturbed or seen by the rest of us. inside the villa is equally lovely, light, airy, roomy and comfortable.
There are two good resteraunts within easy walking distance, we ate at both and the food was delicious. There is a great supermarket "Phillipos" which stocks everything and amazing BBQ meats/fish 10 minutes drive away.
A previous reviewer discussed building noise. There is building work currently going on, on the other side of the neighbouring property, where two new villas are being developed. You can not see any of the building work unless you make a point of going to the very end of the garden and peering round and you would not know any building work is going on except if you hear something. The shells of the new villas seem to be in place now. We think the noisiest work may now have been completed because while we were there the builders were using larger machinery digging down into the rock to make the area in front of the new villas flat and it looks as if that has been finished. Once that was completed the noise was far less and was never continuous, it included being able to hear occasional hand tools being used and deliveries of materials or machinery humming in the distance. We can honestly say the building work did not spoil our holiday and was not something which we were constantly aware of or found irritating . In fact on the whole it was less annoying than when our next door neighbour cuts their lawn when we are sitting in the garden.
We look forward to returning to this beautiful villa.
Thank you for taking the time to write such an extensive and honest review. Really pleased you enjoyed your holiday and took the time to email future guests with your findings of the building works. It was very considerate and helpful of you. You will be welcomed back should you choose to stay at my villa in the future.
2 weeks of building noise & dust
Awake first morning at 7am due to the drilling & diggers on site next to Villa. This happened ever day for the whole 2 weeks, including Sundays. 2nd Sunday they on fact worked until 5.30pm. Noise so bad on 3 days we had to go out for the whole time
Fortunately this guest did enjoy one week of peace (as confirmed by himself on his return by email) before the building work became a nuisance on his second week. He and I came to a mutually satisfactory financial arrangement following his return from holiday where he received a substantial refund for the unbeknown to myself arrival of builders 150 meters away and certainly not next door. He also promised to retract his bad review which he has not. Now that I know about the works All future guests up until end of August have been offered compensation if they wish to remain booked and see how it goes or a free cancellation should they choose. I cannot control what happens outside of my villa boundaries and I had no prior knowledge of this taking place when all my guests booked in 2018. Hopefully the worst of the building work is over but at least all my future guests until end of August are aware. This guest did not complain directly to myself but to my Property Manager and did not do so until the second week or I would have totally refunded him and he could have found quieter accommodation elsewhere. The works are currently working 7.30 to 3.30 Mon to Fri with occasional Sat mornings. My resident neighbour keeps me informed and he reports that the large digger work has moved further away and the noise is put upable. I am informing all my future guests of any changes as I only want repeat bookings from a great holiday villa - and my guests to have a great time.
