About STEPHEN BARNES

Carol and I are both semi retired. Carol runs a dog grooming business from home and I continue, part time, as company director we sold our family medical supplies company a few years ago, having run it for twenty two years. We love the Greek relaxed way of life and spent the majority of our family holidays on numerous Greek Islands with our two children. When we found ourselves in a position to purchase a second home Cyprus was a natural choice. The weather is lovely and there is something to do all year round, including skiing in the Trodos. Mountains from January to March. Most people come to Cyprus for the sun so our Villa is only booked by our guest during the main summer months. That leaves us I plenty of time to enjoy our villa in Cyprus (four months last year).

STEPHEN BARNES purchased this villa in 2004

Why STEPHEN BARNES chose Larnaca region

The Villa that we own is not what we came to Cyprus to purchase!

We originally took a pragmatic view . The Villa was to provide a retirement income. We came to Cyprus looking for a Villa in a main resort. After two days of viewing small identical houses crowded together over looked on all sides we decided that was not for us.

We stumbled upon Mazatos, We had lunch at the Camel Park where we met the owner who was also a builder. He had started a small development in the village. We drove to the site on a warm sunny day past past golden fields overlooking the blue sea (in April ), through the small village and into an Olive Grove to the plot where our Villa now stands. We were sold,the area the view, the feel .Uncharacteristically we paid a deposit there and then with no regrets.

What makes this villa unique

If you are looking for an away from it all holiday ,Mazatos is ideal.

The pool area is not overlooked and the view to the rear of the property still takes me by surprise. The lack of light pollution and how quiet it is at night makes an evening around the barbecue peaceful and relaxing.

The villa in Mazatos is also our home. We have guest a few weeks a year. We hope you enjoy your time there as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had planned do so much on our holiday. On our first day trip out we decided to go back to our Villa after lunch and that is where we stayed for the next four days, perfect"

Five minutes drive to the safe, local, natural pebble and sand beach with clear water. It stretches for miles where you will find one or two taverns. The resort beach in Larnaca is twenty minutes drive. here you will find numerous restaurants, water sports and the main night life.

Travel:

The villa is fifteen minutes drive from Larnaca International Airport. there are local buses that run to Larnaca town from Mazatos but a car hire would be recommended. This can be arranged if required to meet you at the airport.

Distances:

The villa is a short drive/walk to the village centre where you will find a couple of well stocked mini markets, cash machines and a couple of bars. The nearest supermarket is ten minutes by car. The camel park attraction is five minutes drive and is ideal for families with children. Th main town, Larnaca, is fifteen minutes by car.

Further Details:

Mazatos is a working farm village with a relaxed atmosphere. Many who come to our Villa to escape the pressures of modern living hardly travel more than a ten miles radius, just using the local beach and restaurants. Mazatos has been described as being in the middle of nowhere and the centre of everywhere. Its location means that you can either enjoy the rural setting and local beach or within an hours drive cover most of the Island with all the beautiful beaches, historical attractions and lively resorts.

Quiet, spacious and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a peaceful and relaxed fortnight at this villa. The kitchen is reasonably well equipped and bedrooms are comfortable. There is plenty of hot water for showers from the solar powered heater. We found that the pool was very well maintained and private, although caution should be used as the tiles around the pool are extremely slippery.

We were totally happy with the location of the villa, as so many places, shops and beaches were accessible, and yet, it was so easy just to 'stay in' and ignore the world!! Even the airport, only 20 mins away, doesn't bother you.

Owner's Response: Hello Angela, thank you for your comments and for taking time to write a review. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at our villa. The tiles can get slippery, this time of year as a result of dust from the surrounding fields. When we stay we hose them down daily and recommend to our guests that the do the same. This normally resolves the problem. As an additional safety precaution we now (13 October 2017) have sufficient pool matting to cover the walkway around the pool,should our guest feel the need to use it. We have also updated the pool safety section in the villa information file sent to our guests.

A home from home. Lovely and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we booked our holiday, we knew it was the right place for us. The owners were incredibly helpful prior to our holiday and during. Nothing was too much trouble and this made our stay so relaxing and stress free. A home from home ( with a pool, how fabulous and amazing views) with everything we could wish for. Our neighbours were very welcoming and helpful, the local restaurants, in particular, Café Aman served the most delicious food and the local butchers in the next village sold fabulous steaks much to my husbands delight. BBQ's most nights to the sound of nature around us. What could we want. We also found a great beach (Pervolia) which was clean and quiet. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, thank you Steve and Carol, we loved it.

Lovely Well quipped property

  • 5 of 5

This house was lovely and welcoming with lots of extras. The pool was warm and plenty big enough to swim in. The views were fantastic and it had easy access to supermarkets, bars and restraunts.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The owners couldn't be more helpful; they have worked extremely hard to make one's stay here as comfortable as it can be. Information was emailed to us before we set off and also left in the villa for convenience. There were even welcome drinks chilling in the fridge when we arrived - all we needed to do was pick a lemon from the tree in the garden. The villa had everything we might possibly need - even the 3 teenagers were happy to spend a couple of days in and around the villa. The villa is conveniently located close to major roads which makes travelling around the island extremely easy, yet is set in a quiet, rural setting with uninterrupted views across olive groves. Each day started and ended with a swim. Heavenly. Excellent value for money. We can highly recommend this villa to everyone.

A perfect location for a perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we had rented a villa. After being tired of the sun bed morning scrabble, human bumper cars in dining halls and tolerating other peoples unruly children at the pool side....this....is....utter bliss! Steve and Carol's villa is presented exceptionally well with everything you could need whether staying in or going out. The pool is large as is the overall spacious property. The photos don't show the main bedroom ensuite or the car port for your hire car. There is also a utility room with washing machine if you want to travel light on cases. The village of Mazotos is in a fantastic location. Only a few turns on a 20 minute drive from the airport and 15 minutes from Kiti which has fantastic shops with everything you need for your stay. A hire car is a must really but we made full use of this spending a few days on road trips up into the mountains where the views are stunning with fantastic holiday snap opportunities. Although you're not far from Larnaca beeches we travelled right along the coast to Paphos too and went to local markets. We've had a few package holidays but this is the best and truly most relaxing break we've had for many years. And yes, we travelled with our kids, a 13 year old and a 16 year old. Now it took a couple of days for them to like it, being used to the resort hustle and bustle (kids like that). A few trips at the weekend to the beach night life in Larnaca soon resolved this though as they realised we could have the best of both worlds. The busy environment if we needed it was 25 minutes away with the peace and serenity of our own villa with private pool in the country. Highly recommend.
