About David & Gina Gray

Gina & myself are both living & working in the UK, (Rainhill, Merseyside). We bought the villa about 7 years ago and have enjoyed our holidays there so much and when we have rented to family & friends they have been so pleased we thought we should offer to you.

It is our plan to spend some serious time in Kissonerga when we finally retire, but in the meantime we are happy to share our gorgeous villa with you.

David & Gina Gray purchased this villa in 2007

Why David & Gina Gray chose Coral Bay Area

We looked at numerous villas and villages around Paphos before settling on Kissonerga. It caught our hearts on our first visit. It was and still retains what we think of as a traditional Cypriot village. It has traditional coffee shops, and tavernas, so you know that you are in another country but mixed in are all the amenities that are needed for a super modern holiday. Most of them within walking distance.

What makes this villa unique

If you have never had a private villa holiday try ours, you will not want to go back to a hotel. A villa holiday provides, space, privacy and the opportunity for you to do what you want when you want. You will no longer need to vacate your room or eat by somebody else's clock. You are free to enjoy your holiday exactly how you want. A home from home, but with sunshine and a private pool for you to enjoy day & night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Embleton Family - we have had two holidays at this villa and they have both been fabulous. The whole family, kids 13 to 6 months, really enjoyed the pool & everything about the villa. Plus even though we had a car and got to Coral Bay & Paphos, Kissonerga Village has everything we needed, the 5 minute walk to Julies Bar was well worthwhile. The best holiday we have every had.

Special interest holidays:

Paphos, an UNESCO world heritage site, is the ancient capital of Cyprus and former fishing port the often accredited as the birthplace of Aphrodite. The ancient sites and archaeology preserve this noble past and the harbour area builds on this, mixing old and new, to provide a perfect holiday destination in the sun.

Diving: With over 50 dive sites in Cyprus for all year round diving, with the Zenobia wreck being one of the top 10 worldwide dives, The Vera K wreck is just 25 minutes from Paphos harbour laying just 11m below the surface, close to the wreck there is an archway & a series of narrow tunnels suitable for the experienced diver to explore.

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach (Potima) is around 10 mins walk. Coral Bay is around 10 mins car drive away. Here you will find a choice of blue flag beaches, water sports, cafes, restaurants and the most beautiful sunsets. Paphos harbour & beaches are around 20 mins by car. A drive to the Akamas national park is recommended where there are plenty of unspoilt, deserted beaches on the way. Also there is the amazing untouched beach of Lara Bay (Turtle Beach) where the turtles come to lay their eggs at night.

Travel:

Nearest airport is Paphos Int. and is about 20 min taxi transfer journey. Larnaca is an hour and three quarters journey by car. Car hire, although not absolutely essential, is highly recommended if you want to get out & about and discover Paphos and its' surrounding areas. Taxis are easy to book, cards & numbers available, local bus services on the coast road are excellent & quite inexpensive.

Easy to follow directions from either airport can be supplied with a Google Earth

location pin.

Distances:

Kissonerga is well located, and ideally positioned to explore many interesting places to visit. The village has several restaurants, supermarkets, banks and a pharmacy, check out Trip Advisor. There is also a choice of tavernas which come highly recommended,within walking distance on the coast road. 10 minute drive up to neighbouring Tala village square is a true taste of Cyprus with many traditional tavernas to be enjoyed. Paphos is around 15 mins by car, & Coral Bay around 10 mins.

Further Details:

Hiring a car is not essential but is recommended for those who want to explore all that Cyprus has to offer. A drive up to the pine clad Troodos Mountains is recommended and traditional villages include Lania, Omodos and Kakopetria or visit the beautiful monastery of Agios Neofytos. For a nice day out you can head to the popular fishing harbours of Polis and Latchi. Cyprus has the best of both, there is 'old' Cyprus offering charm and tradition or 'new' Cyprus which is livelier and modern. It is all there to be enjoyed, so your holiday is truly what you make it. Paphos town and harbour has an array of shops, restaurants and bars for a good evening out and Paphos Fort often stages special attractions throughout the year. For the daytime, if you are adventurous Paphos Water Park is reached in 15 mins drive and is great for the kids. Many special interest holidays can be enjoyed such as fishing, cycling or birdwatching. A Spring visit to Cyprus provides some of the most exciting birding in all Europe.

Lovely, well equipped and comfortable villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

From the start, when booking, it was easy. David is a fabulous owner and communicator. Nothing was too much for him. He provided so much information and went beyond our expectations. The villa is just lovely. It is spacious and has everything a family or group would require. It really is so well equipped and thought out. Plenty of sun loungers with cushions around the fresh, clean pool. So many towels are provided for outside use as well. The air conditioning is very effective and totally necessary as we had a very hot stay now at the end of June/beginning July.

The local area is super with a 'within walking distance' supermarket that sells just about everything. There is also a pharmacy, bank machine and a good selection of restaurants to choose from. We walked down to the beach and various beach bars and in the immense heat it was always excellent to get back to the pool at the villa for an evening dip.

We all loved our stay - six of us stayed there, but only four at a time, over a two week period and we all agreed that if we holidayed again in Cyprus, we'd stay at Villa Geda without hesitation.

Thanks for being a great host David and all the very best to you.

Owner's Response: Hi Nikki, thanks for the super review. I'm sure it will be a great help to other guests. From my own experience I know it is sometimes a concern to go somewhere new so I just try to make guests feel comfortable that they know where they are going and that they have help available. You have been lovely guests & hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards Dave

Fabulous villa and great area

  • 5 of 5

The villa was xcellent and well kept. Even better than the description. From the moment we walked in to the last moments there we we pleased. The local area had some great restaurants and bars. The nearest bakers was a bit of a hike in the mornings but that fitted in with our daughters lying in while dad strolled off. A couple minor issues arose with the wifi and lights but these were dealt with efficiently by both the owner and the management company. We would recommend this villa to anyone

Absolutely amazing I cannot find fault at all, it's clean and had everything needed for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect holiday from start to finish. From booking to arrival David was quick to respond always pleasant and extremely helpful. The communication and all information given was fantastic and David could not have done anymore. The villa was amazing had everything required for our 2 week stay and the recommendations for bars and restaurants were true to their word. We have had a fantastic family holiday and are happy to recommend Villa Geda. 100% satisfied with our stay here.

Come back again whenever you want. Kind regards Dave

Villa Geda is a 5 star Villa in Kissonega

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Villa Geda on two occasions now and can't wait to stay again! The sun drops into the pool area all day and we enjoy watching the children swim in the pool for hours on end.

With a built in barbecue at the side of the house we can enjoy ourselves whilst watching the sun go down with a glass of wine or two!

The Villa is very family freindly and a home from home! Gina and Dave have always made us feel welcome and with shops, bars and restaurants within a five minute walk.

With Two of the largest tourist resorts a couple of miles either side of Kissonega we occasionally like to "rough it" with the tourists before we head back to our 5 star villa! Haha.

Looking forward to July 2016, Danny and Claire Hampton.

Owner's Response: Hi Danny & Claire, thanks for your lovely review, it is always extremely pleasing to know that the whole of a family enjoy our villa & Kissonerga. As you say it does give the best of both worlds, easy access to all normal touristy stuff plus return to a relaxing village which still shows much of the old Cypriot charm. We look forward to greeting you again in July and hope you have an even better holiday this year. Dave & Gina

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

We visit Cyprus regularly and have stayed in many Villas and we both agreed that we felt very much "at home" here. The Villa is tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac and is very private. The lovely pool and garden area are not overlooked at all. The neighbours on the cul-de-sac that we saw were all friendly and ready with a smile and hello. Kissonerga is ideally situated between Pafos and Coral Bay but you will need a car ideally. Dave and Gina were fantastic to deal with, everything went very smoothly and they are genuinely concerned that you have the best possible time. Already looking forward to our next visit, can't recommend enough.

Owner's Response: Hi Rob & Maria, thanks for the kind comments we certainly do try to make our guests stay as enjoyable as possible and definitely you should be able to feel comfortable. With Kissonerga Village, being made up of locals & expats from many countries, you do get something extra than just a holiday resort. Look forward to you returning again soon. Kind regards Dave & Gina
