About Carol Howe

We fell in love with Cyprus many years ago whilst on holiday and dreamed of owning a holiday home there one day. Our dream eventually came true when we purchased our fist villa back in 2003, a small 2 bedroomed house with a pool and enjoyed many lovely holidays there. However, we have 2 children and 8 grandchildren and longed for a larger property where we all could enjoy the benefits of holidaying with all the family and started looking for a larger villa. We purchased this villa back in 2007 'off plan' from the same developer as before and have never looked back. We love it and Cyprus is our second home!

Why Carol Howe chose Sotira

We purchased this property because of the location by the sea. To have a beach front villa is a dream we never thought we would ever have or be able to afford. All the waiting and saving was worthwhile, to spend time just looking out to sea with a cool glass of wine in your hand and let the hours drift by is totally relaxing and a feeling you just have to experience. Visitors have told us that they become almost 'mesmerized' by the sea and all they want to do is sit and look out. The beaches nearby are beautiful and not crowded. Far from the packed, heavily commercialised beaches you find in some places, Cyprus has some of the most beautiful and safe beaches we seen, even on our other travels abroad. Ayia Thekla beach is fairly small, but we always feel safe with our young grandchildren as the sea is quite shallow and it's possible to walk out to a small island, making it accessible even to those who don't swim.

What makes this villa unique

A beachfront property is certainly unique but it's so easily accessible for anyone to enjoy, especially if you decide to share with other families and friends. There's just plenty of space, 2 or 3 small cafe/bars within easy walking distance and a great supermarket that stocks just about anything you want. The pool is big enough for families to enjoy without being too deep that you're worried about the children getting out of their depth and if you want to just relax by the pool with a cocktail, whilst also enjoying a unique view out to sea, then this is just for you.

Why not visit out of season and enjoy a heated pool? (Available at an additional daily rate)

Absolutely stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing relaxing holiday and didn't want to leave! This villa is absolutely amazing with stunning unobstructed views, it is immaculate, clean and has everything you could require. Our family of 7 had the most pleasurable stay helped by open living space, beautiful gardens and private pool as well as easy access to the beach. There is a supermarket 2 minutes away that offers everything you require. We have family in the neighbouring villages and are familiar with the area, if visiting for the first time we would definitely recommend hiring a car for easy access to locals bars and restaurants as well has having the pleasure of experiencing the rest of this beautiful country! We would definitely book again without hesitation. Chris & Leigh-Ann

Owner's Response: Thank you for those kind words, its always rewarding to hear when someone has enjoyed their holiday in our villa. We agree to hire a car is recommended, Cyprus is a beautiful country with such a lot to do and see and for someone who doesn't know the area what better way to explore. I think you would agree there are some beautiful beaches and places of interest to discover along the coast line which are not normally advertised by the main tour operators and little family run Taverns where you can just idle time away and talk to local people and discover more about the Cypriot way of life.

Excellent villa in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The property is really outstanding! We did some research while in Cyprus on other rental options and really - it is hard to find a place with so fine interior, exterior (even other rental villas in the same village did not have so good terrace as ours). Also location next to private sandy (real sand, not what they call Cyprus sand/pebbles) was extra bonus worth renting this particular villa.

The owners are nice, the local representative Malcolm is very caring.

What one needs to take into account - rent a car! Even though there is supermarket and restaurant in 5 minutes walk, as well as a few restaurants a bit further away, car will certainly improve your stay by much!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely response and we're so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday! Cyprus is such a lovely island and the beaches near to our villa are great but it is also nice to be able to explore so the use of a car is certainly recommended, particularly if you like to go into the Troodos mountains or visit Lefkara to see the lace making. There have been tremendous efforts made to ensure that the coastline improves and every year something is being added; either new restaurants or facilities on the beach without spoiling any of the natural beauty.

A fantastic location by the sea.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing holiday at this gorgeous spacious villa which we instantly fell in love with as the location by the sea is superb and we were happy to spend our days sunbathing in the garden and swimming in the pool and at night we were content to sit with a glass of wine just enjoying the sea view. A little supermarket just a few minutes walk away provided everything we needed and I would recommend the little bar/cafe next to it. If you want to move away from the villa there are two beautiful safe beaches approximately 5 minutes walk from the bottom of the garden. One of them, Agia Thekla has a great cafe/restaurant beside the beach where we enjoyed a full English breakfast. In Ayia Napa we did book a boat trip along the coast (definitely worth doing) and had the option to book other day trips. We did hire a car as Cyprus has some lovely beaches/areas to explore but it was always a pleasure to return to this lovely villa. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely response and we're so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our villa. The beaches really are lovely and I think you will agree that they have to be experienced to appreciate them. Certainly the new beach cafe/restaurant is superb and has certainly brought the area more "upmarket" whilst staying in keeping with the surrounding area. The small bar/cafe attached to our local supermarket is also an ideal place to spend an evening as there are usually lots of things happening, including viewing of popular football matches, and a great area for children to enjoy. We always try to maintain the highest possible standard in our villa and we glad that our villa matched your expectations.

Ayia Thekla
Car: recommended

A luxury beach-front 4-bedroomed villa furnished to the highest standards, situated approximately 35-40 minutes drive from Larnaka airport heading towards Ayia Napa and Protaras. The tranquillity of its setting and yet its close proximity to numerous and diverse activities is second to none. The beach is within easy walking distance and makes it ideal for families. Whilst close by there is a small supermarket and cafe/bar.

It is only a couple of minutes drive, or a 20 minute walk, away from Waterworld, the largest water park in Cyprus.

A few minutes further is the famous Nissi Beach and then the centre of Ayia Napa, with a multitude of fine restaurants and cuisines from all around the world, from Japanese to traditional Greek mezze houses, with plenty of night life to be enjoyed. Alternatively Ayia Napa offers the more tranquil setting of the old town and harbour.

Another 10 minutes drive and you have Protaras and Fig tree Bay, Panera, and for those who like shopping Paralimni.
