About Brian Kavanagh

We are a married couple with two children Kelly aged 8 and Conor aged 12. We lived in the villa from 2007 to 2008 while working for the UN, and have come back each year since. During our stay we take the opportunity to renew anything we find is not up to a very high standard. We fully own the property having received the title deeds in 2010. When we retire we hope to make Cyprus our permanent home.

Brian Kavanagh purchased this villa in 2007

Why Brian Kavanagh chose Larnaca region

We love this area because of the beach, restaurants and Laranca City centre. It is a very friendly and safe resort. It has a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The local people go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

What makes this villa unique

We love spending time with our children in the pool and nearby beaches, parks and play centres. It is a very private villa in a quiet residential area. It is a fantastic location for people who enjoy walking, swimming and water sports. The villa has excellent sea views from the roof garden.

Every bit as good as the reviews suggest

  • 5 of 5

The villa actually exceeded expectations. Couldn't fault it. The garden and pool area is well equipped with quality furniture (there was even a lilo for a 59 year old kid to play with). Inside, the living area is far more spacious than inferred by the photos. The kitchen has everything you need with loads of glasses, cutlery and crockery. B&A even supply umpteen towels for outdoor use. That and the washing machine means that you can pack lighter. The location is fine. The walk to the local bars and amenities is actually rather pleasant in the evening.

Really, the only disappointing thing about the villa is that it isn't mine.

Owner's Response: Thank you Eric for your review. We upgraded a lot of the furniture this year and plan to maintain the high standard to give guests a home away from home experience. The good news is that even though you don't own it, you can always rent it again next year, I promise it will work out cheaper. Thank you again for staying with us, Brian & Anita

A great holiday

We loved the villa and Brian was very helpful, making sure everything was ok.

The location was great for us, everything was well maintained and spotlessly clean.

The perfect villa, a home from home

  • 5 of 5

I have to say you are looked after by Brian and Anita from start to finish. Starting with the organised taxi from the airport, the phone call two days in to check everything is OK plus the deposit back in your account before you arrive home.

As for the villa it has everything you will ever need including UK TV when you need it. The location is so quite and peaceful yet a 5 minute walk and you have many bars and restaurants to enjoy. The pool area is fantastic with outside dining mad easy by the nice large gas bbq.

The place was spotless and with some lovely balconies and a roof terrace to watch the sun go down with a nice cool beer.

Thanks again Brian and Anita ........ We will visit again

Regards

John and Debbie

Lovely villa in a quiet area of Pyla

  • 4 of 5

Villa was as described, nice and clean with a lovely pool, there are a handful of restaurants nearby, our favourite was La Veranda, a car is essential if you wish to take full advantage of the area as public transport is a bit unreliable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. The bus service seems to get better during the summer months, normally there is a bus every 30 mins into Larnaca City. However we also recommend hiring a car for at least part of your visit to explore other parts of this beautiful island. Hope you come back again soon.

Such a lovely holiday - we want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the end of May and we had such a lovely holiday. The house is in a really peaceful area, but close enough to amenities to walk to them - perfect. We spent lots of time relaxing by the pool, and the house and pool were lovely and clean. We also hired a car and went to some beautiful beaches nearby, into Larnaca as well as the Waterworld waterpark near Ayia Napa.

A week wasn't really long enough - I looked to see if there was any more availability when I got home! I'd definitely like to go back. Thanks Brian and Anita

A lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

we stayed for 2 weeks in Brian and Anita's Villa and The villa is in a Quiet neighbourhood with all the amenities within easy walking distance, it is a great place to relax but if you want bars and restaurants they are 5 mins walk away, driving round about is easy and car hire is available at the bottom of the road , highly recommended
