About Michael Kempson

Yvonne and I would like to welcome you to our villa and to share our holiday home with you. Yvonne is German and I am English we live and work in Frankfurt Germany at the moment but hope to retire to Cyprus in the next couple of years. We have set the prices for rental at a level which is very competitive compared to other villas on offer in and around the area. Our aim is to cover the running costs and ensure it is well maintained. These prices have been set within an affordable range for many people who would not normally think of renting a villa. It was the first time we had rented a villa and wow what freedom you have compared to hotels and holiday apartments plus the private pool in the garden was the icing on the cake for us and we hope you enjoy it as we did.

Michael Kempson purchased this villa in 2006

Why Michael Kempson chose Larnaca region

We bought this Villa in November 2006 after falling in love with it when we rented it for a month in June 2006 and lucky for us the owners Steve and Elizabeth who had owned it from new decided to accept our purchase offer and sold it to us. We will of course be using it a lot ourselves but also want others to enjoy it and be able to explore this wonderful island which is full of opportunities.

What makes this villa unique

It is a very private well presented bright and airy spacious villa situated in a nice cul de sac location close to all amenities. The private pool is fantastic either to swim, dip of play. We have provided what we think is a very pleasant comfortable villa in which to have a wonderful relaxing holiday in enjoy it we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It felt like home from home with first class facilities. Comfortable and spacious with a beautiful private pool in the garden of a fully fenced and private quiet location. The villa also provided on-site booklets with very clear instruction on all aspect of the villa and of the local area which consisted of some of the best local family restaurants and bars we visited. With the added availability of the car we were able to visit many other resorts and wonderful land marks throughout Cyprus and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will definitely return to villa Kempson as soon we are able thanks to Mike and Yvonne for their hospitality. - Sally, Martyn, Elliot & Easter

Always one 'thought' ahead - that best describes the house and everything that is provided there by Michael and Yvonne.

Before we arrived, Michael just told us that we have just to arrive in our clothes...and that's true as well. We had 11 great days there, thank xxx alot. - Carla, Laura and Thomas

Very comfortable villa in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The property is very comfortable and clean. The owners have thought of everything... this is 2nd visit so it must be good. The village of Plya and the surrounds had good choices of bars, restaurants and the beach. Take advantage of the owners car to see the rest of this island.

I would certainly recommend this villa and location.

All you could want, indoors and out. And the car.

  • 5 of 5

Gary met us at the airport; he is a huge asset. The villa, indoors, is comfortable and accommodating, extremely well equipped, perfectly clean and tidy. Wifi works well. There was a nice bottle of red waiting for us; it must have been nice, because we got ourselves another one. If you want TV, it's excellent, with very full coverage, once you've learnt how to work it. You'll find lots of maps etc, and guests have put plenty of suggestions in the book.

Outside is spacious; there are several seating options, all comfortable, the pool is really good, and the environment attractive. When we were there, it was very quiet all around, and the street outside (end of a cul-de-sac) is peaceful.

The car is fine; we were very happy with it.

Michael's communication, by email and phone, was excellent, detailed and helpful. Any question was answered quickly and clearly. The online listing is spot-on. Value for money is superb. Very highly recommended.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many villas over the last few years and this is the best by a mile. The facilities are excellent and we really can't find anything at all to fault. The location is ideal with only a short stroll to some lovely bars, restaurants and beach. As for the villa itself, it is just perfect. The pool has a shaded area which suited us ideally as my husband could sit in the shade while I basked in the sunshine! The TV system is a real bonus - we didn't watch a lot but enjoyed a few films and a bit of sport a few nights. We hired the car which is great value for money and made a big difference, even just to get to the supermarket. There are shops within walking distance but much cheaper to go to Lidl which is only a 10 minute drive away. I can't recommend this villa enough - we are hoping to book for next year. There is everything you could possibly want for a perfect holiday. Thanks so much to Michael and Yvonne for giving us the opportunity to share their lovely home.

Wonderful Villa - The Best!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 wonderful weeks in early July at Villa Kempson. We stayed there last year and loved it so much we had to make a return trip.

The villa has everything the five of us required……private swimming pool, barbecue, large screen TV, gorgeously comfy suites to sit on both inside in the air conditioned lounge or outside under the pergola. The villa is not really a holiday villa, it’s a home. Practical and perfectly sized kitchen with all mod cons and spacious, the bathroom has a walk in shower and beautiful bedrooms to rest in with air conditioning in each room. The rooms are beautifully decorated with comfortable furniture and elegant ornaments and pictures. Everything is thought about for your holiday - villa mobile phone, USB charging sockets, electric blinds to all windows, cold water drinking spa, celling fans and even LED mood lighting outside – change the colour to suit your taste!

If it is too hot outside, the villa is equipped with a home entertainment system. This has a large TV, with DVD and films, internet access (post your Facebook pictures to keep them at home jealous) and a system that allows you to watch films and satellite TV even UK TV channels. There are also 2 mountain bikes ready to go but in Cyprus high temperatures when we were there, sorry it was the pool and large cool beers under the pergola!

The front garden is an oasis of wonderful flowering plants and shrubs, whilst most of the back garden is taken up with the pool and pergola offering much needed shade in the hot Cyprus sun, which reached 46C when we were there. Obviously sun loungers to use by the pool and even pool toys to keep the kids and adults amused.

The villa is located on a very quiet cul-de-sac, where you will be lucky to meet anyone. It’s only a short walk to the local beaches, shops and restaurants but frankly my family were content to stay at the villa a lot of the time and enjoy all the facilities. The car that is included with the villa is ideal to go further afield, to the main town of Larnaca (10 minutes) or to nearby Ayia Napa (30 minutes) or further as you desire.

Overall the villa was clean, functional and well maintained and would 110% recommend to anyone. In fact we are already booked for our return trip next year, cannot wait.

Roy and Lesley, Liversedge
