Coral Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Sleep 6/7inc Cot, No car needed Perfect Families or Couples

Villa Coral Retreat is a beautiful, 3 bedroom villa, with private pool, set in a large garden and is superbly located in the heart of the lovely, Coral Bay Village. Our villa is one of the twelve individually designed villas, that make up this lovely, private cul de sac, which is much sought after due to its privileged location and well maintained, much loved properties. Coral Retreat also benefits from having Wi-Fi connection.

A mere two minute stroll from the villa leads to the great selection of restaurants, tavernas, shops and supermarkets of Coral Bay. While, a ten minute walk takes you to Coral Bay Beach, the first, of the two lovely beaches in the area.

The great location of our villa, being within easy walking distance of everything you need, means that car hire is not at all necessary. There is an excellent, inexpensive bus service, which runs through Coral Bay and links to Paphos old town and bustling Harbour area. However, if you choose to drive, it is a great way to explore the beautiful island of Cyprus and to discover the many treasures Cyprus has on offer.

Arriving through an arch of fragrant white Stephanotis, you get the first glimpse of the well tended garden and to its focal point, the cool, refreshing private pool. The garden and pool area are substantial and accommodates the comfortable, stylish garden furniture with plenty of space. A must for your long, leisurely Cypriot lunch is the welcoming shade of the gazebo and for your evening alfresco dining the Cypriot BBQ is on hand for you to enjoy. All designed for you to relax and make the most of your holiday villa in Coral Bay.

The garden is fenced to add to the privacy and has gates to the entrance and driveway, making it safe for our little guests.

The villa benefits from, large open plan lounge/dining and kitchen areas and is filled with light from the large patio windows (kitchen is well equipped with all you need). Furnished to a high standard in brown leather and marble, there is a contemporary twist to the villa and a strong emphasis on comfort. Plants dotted throughout compliment the airy Mediterranean feel.

Air-con is throughout the villa. (Air-con is inclusive)

Wi-Fi has been installed for your convenience and a satellite TV system with a varied choice of most UK channels. The DVD/CD has a good selection of DVD's to choose from. There are also family board games to keep everyone entertained and make the most of family time together. Or for your chill out time a large selection of books can be found at the villa.

Ground floor cloakroom.

The three bedrooms are simply, but, beautifully finished, they each have high ceilings and all benefit from, fitted wardrobes and ample draw space and a safe. Clean linen and towels are provided, along with pool towels for your stay.

The master bedroom has a double bed and ensuite, the large patio windows lead from the master bedroom onto the balcony, where you can sit and watch the morning sunrise over the mountains and enjoy the glorious Cypriot sunset over the Mediterranean seas.

Bedroom two has a double bed and shares the balcony, while bedroom three is to the rear of the villa and has two single beds. The family bathroom is found on this floor and has a bath with a shower.

A cot and highchair are provided free of charge and for your arrival a welcome pack awaits you, with our compliments.

Perfect for couples, families or families holidaying together. Our holiday villa in Coral Bay seems to suit all ages, these are some of the comments that come back time and time again.

To help you decide if our villa is the right choice for your families needs, have a look at our reviews and comments which our previous guest have kindly taken the time to write.

Beautiful Villa, Great Location, Fantastic Owners

  • 5 of 5

From the minute I sent the initial enquiry and Katherine responded I knew I had made the best choice. Although I am a regular user of HomeAway the first class communication from both Mike and Katherine was appreciated and would be very much so if you are not used to booking through here.

From the arranged airport transfer (Nestor) arriving at the Villa which was exactly what we expected from the photos, the kind, generous welcome pack and the fantastic location we knew we had chosen well. What I really liked is that it feels like a home not just a cold, souless holiday rental property.

The large outdoor area is beautiful, lovely comfortable patio furniture which compared to some of the neighbouring villas was welcome as many of them had quite basic plastic chairs etc.

Just a few minutes walk and you are in the heart of Coral Bay with many bars and restaurants to choose from. We tried a couple of the restaurants recommended by Katherine and enjoyed them so much we went to both twice. The Italian, La Vigna was by far the busiest, most popular and deserves to be as the food was great, and you have to go to Oniro By The Sea, just stunning beach bar with top quality cocktails and food even if you don't have a car the taxi is €10 and it's worth every penny.

The villa was lovely and clean and the beds were comfortable, most of our time was spent outdoors but it was nice to see English TV available as it is so rare when we have been away before (not that we watched much).

We arranged a trip before we went with Paphos Wine Tours, would highly recommend this trip if you want to do some sight seeing and obviously like drinking wine! We did 3 winery's ending at Vouni Panayai Winery which was the most beautiful place to enjoy a meze lunch. We bought lots of cheap, good wine that we could enjoy back at the villa on our stay in nights/BBQ.

Huge thanks to Katherine and Mike for looking after us, you clearly work very hard at making sure everyone has a lovely holiday.

Phillipos supermarket just 10 minutes walk from the villa was perfect for us as we didn't have a car we could easily walk there, do a 'big' shop and not worry about getting home as they provide you a free delivery service, just ask at the checkout and they arrange it immediately and saved us the walk back.

It was our first time to Cyprus but will definitely not be our last and I have a feeling we will be seeing you at Little Sea Sparkle in Wales sometime soon............ 😊

Loved, Loved , Loved Coral Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fell in love with Coral Retreat the second we walked through the gate. There was nothing the owners hadn't thought of from the big things to the minute details we were fully catered for. Walking into the villa was like walking into the home of a friend. It is beautiful!! The villa, the garden, the pool, location, everything was fantastic!! The communication with the owners from booking to returning was 1st class. We will definitely be returning xx

Pretty Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Before we arrived Kathleen provided plenty of info and we were made to feel welcome.

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, yet a very short walk from a vast selection of restaurants and bars.

The villa is simply superb both inside and out. Every home comfort is catered for with high quality furniture and a good kitchen. The beds are very comfy and all rooms a good size.

The pool is great, being shallow going to a depth of 1.9 metres.

Can`t really fault the owners or the villa, its pretty perfect!

Lots to do nearby. Recommend the Japanese restaurant for a fun experience. The Greek Taverna with dancing on a Tuesday and Friday night. The wave dancer gourmet cruise night on a Monday. The free coach picks you up locally, and the "Safari" up to Aphrodite`s baths.

Got quite addicted to ending up in one of the bars at the end of some evenings. Cheap drinks and fun entertainment.

We did little but so much!! Wish we could do it all over again!!

What a fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

'What a fantastic week' totally sums up our holiday at Villa Coral Retreat!

The villa was of the highest standard and had everything you could possibly need. All the information provided by Katherine before arrival was extremely useful, helpful and detailed. The welcome chat with Rod was also really informative. We organised airport transfers with Katherine and these ran perfectly.

We went with friends and there was plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 children to chill out, relax and have fun. The children loved the pool and spent every waking minute in there! The men enjoyed the bbq and the pool table and the women loved the poolside loungers and relaxed atmosphere. The lemons growing in the garden made the g&ts even lovelier than usual!

The bars and restaurants on the main street are a short stroll away and we had many lovely meals there.

We explored the local area by bus (number 615) which runs like clock work. We would recommend Paphos harbour (especially in the evening), Corallia beach which was great for the children and the water was crystal clear, and the hotel Laura Beach which had a mini water park for the children. Philipos supermarket had everything you could ever need and will even transport you and your shopping back to the villa!

We had such a lovely half term there we would go back every year without any hesitation.

Thank you Katherine for such a lovely week!

Lovely villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa, nice pool in well set out garden. Plenty of padded sun beds and winding handle sun umbrellas. Lovely large table under a wooden purpose built pergola. Large brick barbecue with bright lighting for barbecues in the evening. Rotary washing line in garden at back of villa.

Indoors the villa for a 3 bedroom was spacious. Well equipped and fitted kitchen with oven hob, microwave, fridge freezer and washing machine. Lots of good quality appliances and lots of crockery and utensils and glasses. Living room and formal dining table, ample for 6 people. Tv with English channels. Wifi and lots of games and books. Utility walk in cupboard with ironing board, iron, fans etc.

Master bedroom was spacious with ensuite.

We very much enjoyed our 2 week stay. The villa is a 2 minute walk to the strip, very convenient to supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Very near every facility but far enough away to enjoy restful nights and days.

Katherine & Michael have thought of everything.

Great maps and books and folder with useful local info on tourist sites and bus timetables. We found this very helpful.

We would stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.

In conclusion, lovely well kept modern villa in great location.

Villa Coral Retreat is in a truly enviable position. It has the advantage of being within easy walking distance of the superb amenities of Coral Bay. Coral Bay is described as being the 'Jewel in Paphos' crown', this small holiday resort is found on the outskirts of its busier neighbour, Paphos. It has a lovely friendly, comfortable, safe feeling and attracts guests back year after year.

There is a great selection for the evenings, chic restaurants mingle with traditional tavernas, some offer family evening entertainment, such as Greek dancing (mainly in high season) or you can just enjoy quiet intimate dining and appreciate one of the local wines. This combination, along with the beautiful beaches makes Coral Bay the perfect location for a holiday in Cyprus.

An excellent bus service is accessed 2 minutes away from the villa (a flat walk) and runs regularly to Paphos historic old town and market and the lovely Paphos harbour with medieval fort. The fare is about 1 Euro each way and a day ticket can be purchased and you can hop on and off as you wish. Alternatively there are many options to join one of the wonderful organised guided trips.

For our younger guests, enjoy safe swimming in the local beaches, a ten minute walk away, here in the crescent shaped, shallow water of Coral Bay, many water sports are available, pedaloes, diving, paragliding etc. or consider a visit to the near by zoo, the water park at Paphos or the Go-Karting, in Paphos or Coral Bay, the list goes on.

Visit Lara Bay, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, here, within in the Akamas nature reserve is where you will find the hatchery of the loggerhead turtles.

Marvel at the amazingly well preserved Tombs of the Kings and the mosaics in Paphos.

Further a field take a visit to the wonderful Troodos mountains (skiing in winter), stopping off in one of the small villages, such as Omodos along the way, immerse yourself in the feeling of village life and enjoy a long leisurely lunch.

Kourion is another wonder of Cyprus and in my opinion, well worth a visit.

Closer to home, ladies pamper yourself at the 5* Coral Beach spa resort or the Thalassa boutique hotel while the gentlemen visit one of the local golf courses.

A car is not needed to visit many of these wonderful places but, although not essential car hire makes exploring a must.

Culture and sport events.:

Outside the walls of the medieval fort at Paphos harbour, the Paphos Aphrodite Festival hosts a yearly, open air, Opera under the stars. This wonderful experience takes place in Cyprus annually in September. An event not to be missed by opera lovers.

Cyprus International 4-day Challenge. A four day running event - Not for the faint hearted.

Weddings:

Cyprus Weddings: With Cyprus reputed to be, The Island of Love.

Cyprus has played host to many happy couples getting married and we have been delighted at Coral Retreat to accommodate many couples and wedding parties.

Dietary:

Dietary requirement: Gluten free. A welcome pack of gluten free bread and products can be made available on request, for guests with Coeliac Disease.

Perfect accommodation for families, families getting together, couples, wedding accommodation, golfing, or ladies pamper breaks.
