Villa with a View!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of privately booking a Villa, I have travelled to Cyprus five times before so know the island fairly well, however I was apprehensive about private booking with recent publicity about fraudulent sites etc.

I called Demi on the number listed before booking and my mind was quickly put at rest, prior to booking and after I sent a number of e-mails to which Demi replied almost instantly on most occasions which was very impressive.

On arrival late Sunday night we found fresh fruit and milk cheese bread and much more, which was very much appreciated, the next day we met Demi's mother who is living in one of the villas.

We had a couple of minor issues one being the kettle lid had been broken, we were treated with a new one at 7am the next morning, we also found the microwave to be broken, this wasn't a problem to us as we didn't need it but after returning from a morning out we found a brand new microwave!

Demi called in to check how our stay was mid way through, we really did feel they wanted us to have the best time possible, but without being intrusive.

I always think of leaving reviews for hotels etc, to date I never have, but after staying here I felt compelled to praise the owners for all there efforts they are a credit to the industry and to their country, we rarely return to the same location but I am very keen on staying here again possibly even next year!

Fabulous villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa. We really enjoyed the pool both day and early evening, the outside area was large & impressive with a pretty garden, huge BBQ, outside sun loungers, shower and a dining table & loungers under the patio...perfect for shade! Indoor was very spacious with clean marble surfaces, staircase & floors keeping the whole area cool. The bedrooms were large with air con & the beds comfortable. Balconies provided a wonderful view of the mountains & we enjoyed watching the sunset. Our two teenage daughters had there own rooms & shared bathroom allowing us good privacy with our ensuite. The kitchen was fitted well with most utensils required & a good selection of crockery. The village of Kathikas was sleepy in the day & then brought to life at night with a great selection of restaurants which you could walk to. We visited; Petradaki with its fantastic view & enjoyed the meze which was wonderful but be warned the portions are huge & I felt like hiding when the dishes just kept coming! Stekki very original, quaint & traditional. We again had meze, this time it was smaller portions & more manageable, the service here was very family friendly & the best welcome we had to our holiday. Imogen's, here we loved the food, location is quaint & service quick but not overly friendly. We loved the chicken pie, moussaka and tiramasu & my daughter found the pizzeria an added bonus, so much so we returned on our last evening even though we were then staying in Coral bay! Upper Peyia is very friendly with a good range of local grocery stores, we found a chilling cabinet in one full of desserts! Troodos mountains was a favourite, visiting the Kykkos monastery & Calendonian waterfall. Aphrodite rock was fun, a beautiful spot & some snorkelling with small fish around the rock. Aphrodite water park is great family fun with a good range of slides, food is limited & a little over priced for what you get, there is a happy hour on drinks which is worth listening out for. The floor in here can get quite hot so water shoes are ideal for small children. West coast peninsula is beautiful and if you hire a car go. The beaches are lovely & quiet, Lara bay has the turtle nests & the sea caves are impressive to see. Phaphos harbour is beautiful by night, The Harbour restaurant has good seafood. Coral bay is lively & provides many shops & bars, we ate at Trattoria La Vigna a lovely italian with great service.

Relaxing Summer Break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Taki for 10 nights in July. Before arriving the owner gave us concise and extremely helpful directions on how to get from the Paphos airport to the villa. After about a 45 minute drive we found the villa with no problems whatsoever. We arrived just in time to see the sunset at the bottom of the garden and we were instantly in love with the place. Bread, cheese, bacon, eggs, milk, fruit juice, apples, bananas and more were already waiting for us at the villa which was much appreciated after travelling from the UK. The villa was exceptionally clean, spacious and well-maintained. The bedrooms were spacious, the linen was clean and there was an abundance of towels available to use. Air conditioning in every room worked a treat. Outdoor was spacious and had plenty of loungers to spend the day. The pool was thoroughly enjoyed as an escape from the afternoon sun. The BBQ was used extensively and kept us all well fed throughout our stay.

The villa is a very short walk from the lovely villa of Kathikas and about a 10 minute drive to the town of Pegeia. A car is definitely recommended if you stay at the Villa and the villa’s location means it is a great hub for exploring all the local towns and coastal resorts.

During our first day the owner (Maria) came to greet us to make sure everything was OK and she kindly let us know that if we needed anything we only needed to ask her. Maria told us that she lived in the villa two doors should we need any help or information. Halfway through our stay Maria’s daughter (Demi) also came to make sure everything was OK which was much appreciated. You can tell the owners really want to make all guests feel welcome and to make sure that guests enjoy their stay, and Maria and Demi both helped in making our stay in Cyrpus a memorable one. We will definitely be recommending the villa to all our friends and family who are thinking of visiting Cyprus.

Attractive villa in peaceful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, bright, well appointed, spacious villa, set in beautiful surroundings. The owners were friendly but unobtrusive and provided a generous welcome pack. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this villa and would certainly consider returning in the future.

Best Mediterranean holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at Lastokkos villas (No 5) the villa is ideally situated in the mountain town of kathikas, about 20 minutes drive from Corral Bay, Kato Paphos to the south or Polis and Latchi to the north, which made it a perfect location ( if you hire a car ) to base ourselves from. Kathikas is a short walk from the villa and has some excellent restaurant experiences, meze meze was a real treat, we would recommend a Friday night to join in the entertainment, for good value take away / or dine in vatou serves an excellent traditional kebab for €5. The villa was spacious, fresh and clean, with a beautiful views and wonderful pool and bbq facilities. In the evening you can enjoy a cool breeze to take the edge of the Cyprus heat and enjoy the still and quiet of the location whilst you look over the bay. Finally and importantly the owners, who live on the private road are lovely people who really care about your stay and we would like to end our review by thanking them for what was a superb holiday.
