About Joseph Arden
Hi, I am a semi-retired property developer, local magistrate and volunteer adviser for the Citizens Advice Bureau. We have owned Villa Callista from when it was built - my partner and I played a big part in design and construction. We are very happy with the finished product and hope that you will be too!
Joseph Arden purchased this Villa in 2010

Fabulous Villa with incredible 180° seaview and great pool
We - two families with two 10-year-old children - spent wonderful 10 days in late October in and around Villa Callista and enjoyed every single day.
The villa is in immaculate conditon offering everything you would need for great holidays. The beds are comfortable, bathrooms, kitchen and everything else is clean and tidy and well equipped with enough space for everyone and everything. All the aplliances work properly and are well maintained.
The most memorable and outstanding features surely are the beautiful (at least) 180° seaviews and most certainly the large 10 x 5 m overflow pool. The pool heating in combination with the brand new pool cover is excellent and kept the water at wonderful 29 °C which was a real joy and definetely worth the extra charge.
The plot is located in a very quite area at the western edge of Peyia with just two more inhabited villas near Villa Callista. The garden offers plenty of sunloungers and more then enough garden furniture for outside meals. We offen used the charcoal BBQ in the evenings and enjoyed the one or the other Sundowner on the terrace.
The communication with the owner Joe was very nice and the provided informations like the directions etc. were very helpful and accurate. A very warm thank you also goes to the property manager James who is 100% reliable and pleasant. We appreciated the welcome pack as well as the late check out very much.
We can truly recommend Villa Callista and hope to return some day.
Had a wonderful week here with our two teenagers. We felt very looked after right from the start, Joe emailed arrival info and the directions to the villa were spot on (even arriving in the dark). Arrived to a welcome pack of staples, which tided us over until we went shopping. You do need a car to make the most of the amazing location which is about a 10 min drive to the coast. Villa had everything we needed, very well equipped for cooking etc
The views from the villa are incredible, esp from the front bedrooms. Lovely clean pool, and plenty of chairs and sun loungers around for relaxing. The BBQ was great fun.
Must give a special mention to James, the maintenance chap, he looked after us fantastically, we had to call him to look at the pool and he was there almost immediately, and even offered to take our rubbish away for us. The only 'disturbance' all week was a herd of goats walking past ringing their bells.
To summarise, gorgeous, clean, well equipped villa. Amazing views and sunsets in a v tranquil setting. Didn't want to leave!
Thank you for a fab holiday!
Family holiday get together.,
We had a fabulous holiday at the stunning villa callista, there were three couples and we found the villa very spacious inside and outside so you didn't feel on top of one another. The property was very clean and maintained to a very high standard. Great bbq and patio areas and the pool is divine. We had a lovely relaxing holiday as it was so peaceful with fabulous views. You do need a car but it doesn't take long to get to the nearest village or the variety of restaurants there is to choose from. We tried to find fault but we couldn't and would definitely go again, cant wait.
We've just returned from a fantastic two week holiday in Villa Callista, its a superb well sized modern air conditioned property with terrific views across the fields to the sea, marvellous when eating your breakfast on the patio. James from the local management team is full of good information (and stories of his adventures :-) ) and couldn't be more helpful. The entertainment system was mastered by the children in about 5 mins and with box sets and the latest films was a good distraction to keep them out of the midday sun and keep them (and us) entertained in the late evening.
A car however is essential, the nearest village, Peyia, is 2km away, up and down small winding roads, but contact the owner for a good deal on local car hire, which will also give you the opportunity to explore further afield.
If you enjoy peace and quiet, with the only sounds in the warm sunshine, being the gentle flow of swimming pool water and the occasional clanging of goat bells then this is definitely for you... and for us we cant wait to go back next year.
Very happy to receive this review. Our guest describes the location well and we are happy that the efforts of our management team were appreciated. Proof of the pudding is that the reviewer has already booked for next year!
Fantastic Villa Callista
Villa Callista is stunning with a 5m x 10m infinity pool which is always clean and kept so by James who lives locally and is on hand for help and advice.
Joe, the owner, describes the villa as built to a high standard , in fact it is built and fitted out to an exceptional standard with everything one needs for a perfect holiday.
The location provides all round views , to the east are mountains and to the south and west the sea. The only sounds generally are of the birds and the passing goats.
A car is essential to visit Peyia village, Coral BAy and the rest of south Cyprus.
My wife and I and adult daughter had agreat holiday and we must thank Joe for allowing us to rent his luxury villa, for providing clear directions from Paphos airport and for help in finalising the booking.
Top of the range villa with excellent furniture, equipment and facilities. The position is stunning as well as being so peaceful. The TV and ' magic box' makes you feel as though you are still in the UK except the weather is much better! The 'computer' keeps you in touch with the outside world but the villa's location ensured that this was THE chilled out holiday. James, who services the villa was very helpful. Nearby Coral Bay means good food is readily available and the view from the Green (Room?) above Peyia is awesome.
