Villa not up to an acceptable standard in terms of state of repair/cleanliness
We stayed at Villa Finikia from 30 Oct to 13 Nov 19 and were very disappointed by the standard of cleanliness and state of repair. We usually book through James Villas but decided on a private rental this year.
Firstly the pros – UKTV (however was temperamental and often buffered), lounge area was comfortable, Gas bbq.
Now the cons – The villa was not clean. On entering, the floor was dusty and clearly had not been mopped in a while. Many lightbulbs were out. The door from the kitchen (facing on to the road) was single-glazed which to us posed a security risk and had no blind so we felt somewhat exposed. The dishwasher did not work properly– after 2 cycles, dishes remained dirty (this was reported and the owner tried to remedy to no avail. Unmatched crockery/glasses, insufficient cooking utensils – we had to wash everything by hand before using. Had to buy steak knives as none available. Cutlery drawer full of crumbs. Only 2 out of 4 slots of the toaster worked (however in fairness, the owner replaced when it was reported). The switches on the cooker hood were held up with duct tape. The bottle holder on the fridge door was broken, bottles would fall over when door was opened (light on fridge also not working). A pot we tried to use was greasy and had clearly been used on the bbq and was completely covered in charcoal and unusable. The oven was filthy and let out black smoke when trying to use it – tried to clean as best we could in order to use it. You shouldn’t expect on holiday to be buying scourers and cleaning products and spend time cleaning other people’s property. The oven tray was dirty and even had used and dirty tinfoil in it when we arrived.The windowcills in stairwell were covered in dust and dead flies. We encountered 4 large cockroaches inside the villa. The outside area was very badly maintained – 12/13 foot unkempt leylandii on both sides of the garden with the dead leaves on the ground not having been swept clearly for some time. Dead plants. Lounger cushions burst and badly in need of replacement. Broken cement/tiles around pool area. Would be a hazard for small children. The pool itself was cleaned once in 14 days!! Black mould was visible all around the pool tiles. Steps into the pool rusted. Pool lights not working. No outside shower so oil going into pool.
Previous reviewer asked to leave when complaint made, we had no option to put up. Photos avail which can be posted to trip adviser rev pending owner's response.
We are very surprised and shocked by the below as we have screen shots of your texts with Felix which makes the below totally untrue and are unsure as to why you would do this Your first message was “so sorry we missed you when you came to do the pool today as we have a couple of issues ". how can you then proceed to say the pool wasn’t done during your stay ! Had this been the case it would have been the colour of pond water !
You informed us one side of the toaster had failed that morning and a lightbulb had gone and weren’t sure how to use the dishwasher as it didn’t seem to be working Felix informed you he would come that morning Your replied you would be in Paphos but that would be great. He came with a new toaster, changed the bulb and refilled the dishwasher with rinse aid and salt which is stored under the sink. Checked the arms and drain and left it on a hot wash He informed you of this and your reply was “ great thanks very much it’s much appreciated “ We never heard from you again during your stay!! On our follow up email saying we hope you had a lovely stay we received no reply ?
All in all a very odd way to behave ? We have many many repeat guests at the villa every year who are always impressed with the standards and what it offers . A shame they can only review once even though they come every year as I know they would be shocked by your review !
This is the most perfect family holiday . Have been here for over 10 yrs. Everything you need
Started coming to this Villa when children were 2 and 4yrs old they are now teenagers . Been every year, for me as a mum I feel very safe and my children love the choice of our lovely chilled out villa pool with fab Wii an English TV ( well they are teenagers lol ), The two lovely beaches within 5 mins walk . A few lovely bars and amazing taverns on the sea selling fresh fish. And just a small 15 min walk to the main stretch with loads of bars, restaurants, crazy golf ,children entertainment an obviously fabulous food great entertainment. There is also two fabulous hotels within 2 mins walk where we have been for free evening entertainment and fab pools .
We sometimes get a car which is really easy to hire from U2 cars pick up from airport or the will transport you to the villa about 30 min drive.
The villa is filled with loads of books an toys for kids and all you have to do us ask Lisa and Felix if you need anything and they will do their best to sort it.
In the 10 yrs we have been to this villa we have had a few probs , toilet not flushing , problem with the TV. Just a phone call away and Lisa and felix will sort it. . We have already booked for next year . I'm not sure if anyone can email me but have fabulaspictures of property and happy to share
thank you so much for your lovely review. its lovely for future guests to hear about the villas location, facilities etc. proximity to beaches hotels etc.
we look forward to you and your family staying with us again
Property location, cleanlyness and facilities were excellent, fealt very reasurred knowing that the property manager Lisa was on hand, should we have needed any assistance. Have used this company for 6 years and have always been more than satisfied. I will continue to use them in the future.
HI we are so glad you had a lovely stay with us again and found the villa a clean and excellent facilities
thank yo for looking after the villa so well and for our little gift, so kind of you
we look forward to welcoming you back

We had a very enjoyable three weeks in the villa. We very much appreciated the various improvements made since our last visit, particularly the outside furniture, we rarely went inside! In fact, we only went out for a couple of days during the entire stay. It’s a very relaxing, chilled villa that you can use as a base for exploring, or like us, relaxing and hardly moving! There are three bars round the corner and the bars and restaurants in the strip, are walkable (or a short bus ride) but the walk back is slightly downhill, so easy.
hi thank you for your lovely review. we are so glad you had a great stay with us and liked the new bits we have added. each year we try to add to the villa. this year getting both new internal suite and additional lounge furniture for outside, so pleased you like it.
its great for future guests to ear about the villa, its standards and location etc, we look forward to welcoming you back

Schöne Villa an Toplage!
Wir hatten wunderschöne 2 Wochen in Coral Bay und die Villa ist perfekt für Familien mit Kindern. Es hat einen tollen Pool und der Strand ist nur ca. 5min zu Fuss entfernt. In der Villa hat es sehr viele Spielsachen für Kinder, so dass unsere 2 Kids auch sonst dauernd beschäftigt waren. Lisa und Felix sind immer erreichbar, wenn einmal etwas ist. Die Toilettenrohre sind etwas schnell verstopft und die Spülmaschine ist nicht mehr die neuste und wäscht nicht mehr so gut. Ansonsten ist die Villa und die Ausstattung aber toll und wir kommen gerne wieder!
Særlig interesse helligdage:
På grund af sin beliggenhed er det ideelt for dem, der ønsker at have en vand sport ferie, er der mange dykkerskoler lokalt med alt fra begyndere kurser til nogle fantastiske vrag dykning for den erfarne dykker. Georges Ranch for dem, der gerne ridning er en 5 minutters kørsel. På grund af klimaet det er populært for både vandre- og cykelferier plus gavn for tre golfbaner betyder der er noget for enhver smag.
Coast / Beach:
Villaen blev valgt for sin position mellem 2 af de bedste strande på øen. Coralia være 3 minutters gang væk og Coral strand 10 minutters gang - begge er blå flag strande, de begge tilbyder en vifte af vandsport, skiftende og badefaciliteter og snackbarer.

En taxa fra lufthavnen er ca 45 euro, som kan arrangeres som kan en meget pålidelig bil udlejningsfirmaet.
Alle nedenstående afstande er ægte, vi har gået dem trække vores to børn sammen! Supermarked, flere restauranter og barer 2 minutters gang. Coral Beach Hotel 2 minutters gang. Coralia Beach, 10 minutter max gang til Coral Beach. 15 min gåtur ind Coral Bay centrum. Paphos zoo 10 minutters kørsel.
