Villa in Coral Bay, Paphos, Cyprus - Peaceful Location No Immediate Neighbours Amazing Views And Gardens
I am Lisa,my husband & I own a couple of villas in Coral Bay, we emigrated to Cyprus in 2006, with our 2 children. Our children now attend the International School & love life here.We bought a lump of mud on honeymoon and had our holiday villa built in 2001 , we initially lived here whilst we had our house built and we started renting it out 9 year ago and having been holiday makers knew what people looked for, it proved very successful so we have expanded purely in this area looking after properties from neighbours and friends and buying a couple more ourselves.Felix and I personally look after our villas & cater for you should you want us to. . We live locally (5 mins drive away) we can provide that added extra personal service, you can not often get, ie. sorting cars, taxis. We are both UK hospitality trained so offer meals on arrival, barbecues prepared just for you, beer in the fridge or wine from a local vineyard. We personally visit you after your arrival and are only a phone call away for your entire stay.

We were very happy with our stay at the property. The living space and outside more than adequate for 6 people. The pool is lovely and deep (about 6.5 foot at it's deepest). The property was clean and very well equipped. Small thing, but I appreciated the hand soap at every basin as this is something often overlooked. Location is awesome and very close to strip (3 min walk) and the beaches (3 min and 20min for Corallia (really fab beach). 15min walk to Marine Divers as well which I would thoroughly recommend. In summary, absolutely fine villa in an excellent location. Recommended.
Fantastic location and fantastic villa.
From 1st booking to arriving at this perfect villa if couldn't have been easier. It was the 1st time we had an holiday in a private villa and wont be last, from my 1st enquiry with Lisa it couldn't have been easier with great communication from start to finish.
If like us you want somewhere that is secluded and private this is the place. The villa may only be 2 minutes the the beautiful Coral Bay beach and 5 minutes from the strip with an abundance of restaurants and shops but its secluded location you could be miles from any civilisation.
Although it was only myself and my wife staying there the villa sleeps 6 and it could comfortably accommodate that number and you wouldn't be under each other's feet, as there is more than enough space for all either outside around the pool or inside in the lounge or dining area. The kitchen is beautiful and fully equipped with everything that would need, including washing machine and American style fridge with the all important ice maker. We spent most of our time split between going out and about one day and in the villa the next and having you own private pool is a godsend and to top it off with a soak in the jacuzzi in the evening just makes it all.
I mentioned it in one email to Lisa that it was our 25th wedding anniversary and on arrival we had a lovely welcome pack and a bottle of bubbly chilling in the fridge for when we arrived and it's the little touches that let you know what type of people you are dealing with.
I cannot recommend this villa highly enough and Lisa and Filix, although we never had any problems I am sure if we did it would have been sorted immediately. We are currently making plans to come back next with our daughters and there partners and the 1st person I will getting in touch with will be Lisa.
Conveniently located and spacious villa
A lovely property conveniently located close to the main strip and and beach.
We had a couple of blips with the electricity that were soon remedied thanks to the notes left by the management company.
A Bluetooth speaker would be an added bonus at the property as the docking station available is outdated.
All in all it was a lovely property that met our expectations throughout our stay
relaxing by the pool
the location and setting were just what we needed
Terrible-Look back the other review like this is also an honest one.
You will be surprised when you arrive but not in a good way. The pictures are not accurate, I have my own to prove this point. The whole villa was filthy, smelly and not what you expect for the money you are paying. The pool and hot tub were unusable as they were dirty and surprise, surprise the pool's pump was broken. The sea view has gone because the garden is totally overgrown and again unusable. Outside, even taking into allowance for the rainy season the area has suffered from, was filthy and this was not just a seasons worth. The sunbeds were stained there was mould everywhere and the BBQ was non-existent. The side of the property by the hot tub was terrible, full of rubbish. Inside the smell of mould was overpowering and the cupboards had mould spots all over them. The bathrooms were not clean the toilet seat was stained and dead flies were on the floor. The sheets were dirty and there were DVDs to play but no DVD player! Considering we tried to contact the owners only 5 minutes after our taxi driver had called they suddenly did not answer and never answered any of our calls from a UK mobile. We were in Cyprus for a week for our daughters wedding we did not expect to have arrive on Sunday to a filthy villa not like any of the photos, to be left a note to say the pool would hopefully have a new pump by Tuesday 3 days into a 7 day booking. Even if the pool was fixed the rest of the issues would have taken weeks to sort out by a team of people not what you expect whilst on holiday. When we complained as expected denial of receiving any calls, surprised we had moved out, yes we paid to stay at a hotel at high extra cost for us as we were not going to let a poorly maintained, miss-sold villa ruin our time at our daughters wedding. Told we had not given them time to fix things, trust me if you saw the photos you would see a week was not long enough to fix things and its not like we sprung our visit on them we had booked so the fixing should have happened before we arrived. The whole approach to our complaints, the stay & condition of the villa means we will never use HomeAway again, there is no way of stopping owners abusing peoples trust, you cannot share photographic evidence, just leave a review. I can guarantee the response-denial, our fault for not giving a chance to fix things, our fault for not spending the whole of our holiday trying to contact them and for moving out oh and the weather! Good Luck if you book I hope its had a face lift.
What can i say, as you will know we filed a report on you as guests recommending other owners not to rent to you due to your behaviour ?
Basically its summed up in your last sentence you had bad weather! the worst since 1906 we cannot be responsible for this but this meant you were cold, miserable and decided to move to a hotel where you had plenty to do indoors. I actually totally understand this and had you called us we would have been able to help as we dont want someones holiday ruined by the weather.
You NEVER phoned once after having phoned re directions as you forgot to print them so we know you had our number. you never texted, you never emailed nor did you call home away ? they have a 24/7 call centre! and every call is logged ,you on the above are accusing ourselves and a reputable rental company of lying! ourselves and home away are both very responsive to all enquires and queries. we live a couple of minutes away.
Once you emailed after you had left, the first communication we had ever had from you! ,we called on your number, texted and sent emails as we wanted to meet you face to face however you chose to ignore all these which we find very odd..
You never even wrote to home away with a review for 2 months after leaving? would anyone with a genuine issue not contact the owner or the rental company whilst here or leave it two months before writing a false review! this is clearly because you had no facts
You arrived to a spotless villa as our photos that we have show, you arrived mid storm so yes horrendous weather for march,you would have leaves blowing round the garden and into the pool, yes the storm lasted for 3 days,, the pool was in perfect condition, you arrived sunday evening, monday was bank holiday, we needed to replace a valve so informed you someone would be round at 8am on tuesday for approx an hour to replace it, this in no way affected the pool we just didnt want you getting up and seeing a strange person in your pool house. this is 36 hours from arrival not 3 days! you could have used the pool( apart for the weather) and wouldnt even known had we not left a note out of courtesy,
we never told you we would have fixed things as there was nothing to fix!
you basically wanted to leave and not speak to anyone,,ignoring our calls, texts, emails and not contacting home away and expected to get a refund so you could stay in a warm hotel more suitable for the weather,which had you explained you would have met with sympathy!
