Hibiscus Villa is a modern 4 bedroom villa situated on a small development on the outskirts of the quiet village of Alethriko, set in a rural and tranquil valley, surrounded by farmland, and yet only 15 minutes drive from the centre of Larnaca. There are terraces and balconies to the front and rear to admire the stunning views. Due to its high quality of properties and its’ nearby planned golf course, Alethriko is often referred to as 'The Hollywood of Larnaca'! The village centre and nearest Taverna is a 10 minute walk away and there are two excellent tavernas offering local cuisine. For those who enjoy walking there are tracks leading up to the top of the hills of the valley to admire the breathtaking sea view to one side and the panoramic views over the valley on the other. Nearest beaches are 10 minutes drive away. A pool cover/heater is provided to heat the pool during the cooler months. Cyprus is an all year round destination, Alethriko is an ideal central location for exploring.
Hibiscus is owned by Phil Wood, Nick Cooper and Andy Bridge, three business partners in a thriving Accountancy practice in the West Midlands, and benefits from our substantial combined holiday experiences. The villa has all the luxuries which we would expect as guests to ensure that you will have a fantastic holiday.
Ideally situated for access from and to the airport (a 15 minute drive with no overhead flight paths), Alethriko is a beautiful and peaceful village with friendly local Tavernas, and a superb super market. With the cosmopolitan hub of Larnaca just a 15 minute drive away, your unforgettable Cyprus holiday will offer the perfect combination of relaxation, culture and activities!
The villa was very plush and roomy. The cleanliness of the property was of an excellent standard and the furnishing was also of a high quality. The swimming pool was a good size & the weber BBQ/pool area set up was great. I would definitely recommend this villa to others and Angela's 'personal touch' of looking after us was really helpful. The Villa is excellent. (John S Nov 2011)
We stayed at Hibiscus villa over the Christmas and New Year holidays. The house is very nice, comfortable and well located for visiting Cyprus. All facilities are excellent/very good and the local villa manager is very helpful. Bruno, Dec 2011.
We felt completely at home as soon as we entered the villa. It is so well equipped lends to the overall feeling of care that has gone into the villa. Bob B Apr 2012
HOLIDAY UPDATE!!!!!! FAN BL**DY TASTIC ....The villa is perfect just as you promised and everyone here agrees.Our 2 extra guests arrived last night and both love it too. (Neil C & Family July 2012)
The villa was perfect for our family of 5 including a 5,9 and 14 year old. The pool was used every day. The facilities within the villa are excellent and fully utilised. The service from Angela was outstanding from booking through to a wonderful grocery shop on our arrival so we could start to enjoy the holiday immediately. We hired a car for the duration and the directions and maps in the villa helped us to get around the island easily and visit places and beaches. We had a wonderful holiday in a lovely villa.
Two families with two children aged 3 and 2 stayed for a week at this lovely Villa.
It is a short drive from the airport (around 15 minutes) and was really easy to find even after dark using the excellent directions from the property manager, Angela, who was lovely and really helpful.
Took advantage of her offer, at a cost of 20 Euros, to do some shopping for us so when we arrived the fridge and cupboards were nicely stocked.
The villa is exactly as described and the owners have kitted it out perfectly to ensure you have pretty much everything you could need during your stay.
As with everywhere though there are a few negatives:
-The villa is a perfect base however a car is absolutely essential as other than an exceptional bakery and local restaurant, there isn't a great deal else locally. Navigating around is really straightforward though and tourist resorts can all be reached within 30-40 minutes by car.
-Just be wary before booking if you have young children as there isn't a great deal of room around the pool area and you are literally out of the patio doors, two steps and in the pool.
-We experienced very high temperatures for the time of year (37-38 degrees in mid-June) so the air conditioning was essential to get a good nights sleep. You could however only turn it on for two hour bursts (apologies if we missed something) and as it was quite humid at night the room soon warmed up forcing you out of bed to reset it for another two hours.
Overall we were more than satisfied and would recommend the villa if the points above aren't an issue!
had a 3 week stay booked at Villa Hibiscus and couldn't have been happier from start to finish. Villa is superb, with all the mod cons to hand. Stylish furnishing and quality throughout and a nice pool area with plenty of seating.
Thanks to Angela for great help during the stay, highly recommended.
From the first enquiry that I made Angela ( property manager) was prompt with replys, helpful, friendly and accommodating . Nothing was too much trouble, which made me feel comfortable about booking. I was booking on behalf of my family which included my elderly mum and dad and our teenage kids so trying to suit everyone was a task! We exchanged lots of emails from booking to ordering food to be there on our arrival. When we did arrive( Angela sent us excellent directions ) we were all very impressed by the location, size , decor, cleanliness we honestly couldn't of asked for more. Angela came to meet us the day after our arrival and went through all our questions and was most helpful. The villa was equipped with absolutely everything and the pool and area was wonderful. We definitely needed a car as we were out in the suburbs, which was our preference. Overall we couldn't of wished for a more luxurious villa and Angela is a credit to the home owners .
A lovely clean, spacious and very comfortable villa with everything you need. Fully equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds. Recommend if you want a really relaxing holiday.
We stayed with 9 adults and a baby. The house is everything you could wish for and has everything you possilble would want. The service of Mrs.Angela Parouti was excellent. She really went out of her way to get all the neccesary things you need for a
baby, even a little gate for the stairs so the baby couln't crawl upstairs. We were in Cyprus for 2 weeks and we all had the feeling that it went too fast and we were disappointed we had to go home
