About Joanna Wood
We live in a beautiful rural location in Buckinghamshire with our three children; Niamh, Freya & Jack and cocker spaniel Molly. We first visited Cyprus as a family back in 2009 and were taken with how beautiful, friendly and warm it is here ! We decided at the beginning of this year after our seventh visit that we should surely put down roots and let someone else enjoy the beauty of this island.
Joanna Wood purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Joanna Wood chose Aphrodite Hills
Aphrodite Hills is a beautiful resort catering for children, couples and families. The resort facilities are outstanding and our children never tire of what is on offer there. Villa 'Ioannu' is a true hidden gem located on the exclusive eastern plateau. A split level villa which offers each guest privacy on every level. Nestled into a ravine location with undulating views of the ravine giving you a true sense of Cyprus. It is wonderfully peaceful here and with only a 5 min drive to the village square we get to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the village resort but the privacy of the plateau.
What makes this Villa unique
We particularly like that the villa is not overlooked and we feel that the style that we offer here would make most people feel that they were experiencing something special. If there is anything that you would like to make your stay more comfortable than we would be happy to accommodate you if we can.
Pool / Spa
A First Class Villa - Just Wow
We have for many years now stayed in various villas in Aphrodite Hills Resort but we can honestly say this one is by far our favourite villa. In fact the pictures do not do it justice. This is a first class villa which has everything and more that you will ever need. We received our keys at the security gate and we were ushered to our villa, we were shown around the villa and instructions on various aspects of the villa. The villa is furnished to high standards & every room is large and spacious with plenty of storage space. We were met by an amazing welcome pack of food from the owner we just thought “wow” the attention to detail had been exceeded and more. The location of the villa had a perfect setting overlooking the golf course but also private and a totally relaxing atmosphere. Great views of the sunset in the evening having a Cheeky G&T we didn’t need to go anywhere else to watch. The pool was a great size with the sun 24/7 but great shade also if you wanted to get out of the Cyprus heat. This villa was spacious, luxurious and everything felt like home. Loved the Sky TV, now that was a fantastic idea. When you come back from a holiday and want to be back in a villa then this was it. The owner has thought of every single detail to make our stay an enjoyable experience that we won’t ever forget. The personal touch has made us want to go back and we will definitely be going back in 2018. Thank you Joanna for allowing us to stay at your amazing Villa Ioanna, a first class villa in a fabulous location. Xx
Outstanding Villa Holiday Experience
We arrived late in the evening to be warmly greeted by a member of security who guided us to our Villa swiftly. We were immediately blown away by the beauty of the Villa. We were given a thorough tour of the Villa and its facilities and were told we could contact a member of the management team day or night 24/7 for any kind of assistance, all very reassuring. The Villa itself is quite outstanding, warm, welcoming, extremely smart, modern, spotlessly clean and perfectly maintained and presented. The pool was amazingly warm and inviting with fabulous lighting, after the 'meet & greet' member of staff had left us to it we jumped straight in at 10.30pm. The Villa owner could not have made our stay any more wonderful and went above and beyond to make our experience exceptional, every detail covered, fridge full, substantial welcome pack, personal touches for my 3 year old daughter. This holiday exceeded all expectations and then some, I could not recommend Villa Ioanna more although I'm worried about recommending to too many people in case it gets booked up. We will undoubtedly be returning to this very special place in the not too distant future and I cannot wait to get back there. As for Aphrodite's Hills Resort, a great location and facilities. We were more than happy to stay close to the Villa for our 1 week stay but we did venture into the village, a super friendly, very well stocked Supermarket was a regular haunt, a great play area also if you have young children. My partner played a round of golf which he thoroughly enjoyed, the Golf Club was very smart. Very impressed how clean the public areas were, even the public toilets were spotless. A truly lovely resort, 10/10.
The most fantastic holiday experience began even before embarking the plane, with the 5 star pre-stay service and information that we received from the owner, making everything as accessible and stress feee as possible. Upon arriving at the villa we were blown away by the space, furnishing and features of the villa - sheer luxury! We travelled as a large group with kids and the pool and outdoor furniture meant that we were able to spend each day lazing around the villa with everything at our fingertips! The villa itself is in great proximity to the resort 'square' where you can access shops, restaurants and spa/leisure facilities if you do want to venture out of the villa. Nothing was too much for the owners and I highly recommend a holiday here :)
We are just back from staying at Villa Ioanna and really don't want to be writing this for two reasons - we are home and because then everyone will know how gorgeous this villa is and we won't be able to book again! From initial contact with Jo, through the booking process to our fantastic week away - everything was brilliant. Joanna's thoughtful touches provide an exceptional home-from-home. We can't speak highly enough of the service or the villa which pictures do not justice. Coupled with magnificent food in the Fig and Olice restaurant at the Sensatori, it is safe to say we have come home heavy in heart ( and weight!). One thing for certain - we will return. Thank you Jo for sharing your stunning second home.
Simply the best...........
We have rented holiday villas in various countries for the past 20 years and from our experience Joanna's villa and the level of service was simply the best.
From the day we made our booking to arriving in Cyprus nothing was too much trouble. We received clear and precise directions for the 25 minute drive to the villa from Paphos airport and on arrival we found a generous welcome basket and Joanna true to her word during our holiday being available via email to answer any queries or questions.
The villa was very well appointed in every way possible with high quality equipment, plenty of outside furniture, a beautiful pool where you are not overlooked in well maintained gardens with distance sea views.
Most evenings we sat on the balcony watching the sun setting before going out to dinner at one of the five tavernas at the nearby village of Kouklia where the village square is closed off to cars in the evenings.
Without any hesitation we would recommend Joanna and her beautiful villa located on the Aphrodite Hills Resort and all the facilities this offers which we hope to visit again in the future.
Wow - just perfect!
We have recently returned from a fabulous family holiday at Joanna’s beautiful Villa in Aphrodite Hills, about a 30-minute drive from Paphos. Planning the holiday was made so easy with Joanna’s support right from the start - suggesting flights; arranging car hire and helping us to settle in with a wonderful welcome basket of goodies!
The villa is gorgeous – better than the pictures - and was absolutely perfect for us to mark our son’s 30th birthday! The pool area is enormously relaxing and very private. Inside and outside is beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean.
Aphrodite Hills offers a wide range of activities – our group enjoyed the Segways, bikes, nature trails for jogging and long walks and the ladies very much enjoyed being pampered in the award winning spa! If you are a golf enthusiast then you must check it out as this can only be described as a wonderland – clearly a prime reason for many who holiday there.
The local villages all have something special to offer and eating out was super – so much choice and very cost effective! The local people are so friendly. Joanna made some wonderful recommendations and even booked for us in advance. We are now hooked on meze! Historically the area has so much to see; the coastline is stunning – something for all ages.
As first timers on a villa holiday abroad I cannot recommend a stay at Joanna's villa enough. There are doubtless many other places to choose from but what makes this holiday so good is that Joanna is at the end of the phone to help and advise you any time!
Thank you Joanna.
