Wonderful, spacious and light property. Great pool and sun beds. Excellent location, close to a beautiful, local beach. Very attentive owner and host with lots of recommendations. Great added touch of food/drink basics upon arrival. Would highly recommend to families or groups of friends who want a relaxed week in the sun. Would also recommend “Sea You” beach bar for sunset cocktails (10min drive away). And Oniro by the sea - great cocktails and amazing food!
his was my 4th visit to Villa Marina, so you can tell how much I love it. Had another fabulous holiday in this beautiful villa. Superbly equipped for everyone's needs, very well kept, very clean with everything you need. Beautiful large garden which is very secluded, and lovely garden furniture and loungers. The pool is superb and very safe, with steps leading into it. The villa is in a great location, 5 mins from a local supermarket, 5 mins from lovely beach, where there is also a small bus station/stop, with a great service to the Coral Bay Strip and Pathos. Marina, the owner is wonderful, so friendly and helpful, and very quick to respond when you contact her. Mikka, the villa manager, is really lovely, very friendly and helpful, and will look after you well while you are there. Everything about our stay there was great, and I would highly recommend it to anyone, and have already booked to go back next year - can't wait.
Communication with Marina is brilliant. The villa is perfect. Location is great. 3 min walk to the beautiful corallia beach. Beautiful restaurant, Porto Antico is 10 min walk (right at the end of the road) but also the option of getting a bus €1.50 per person to the coral bay strip which has loads of restaurants and bars to choose from. Another highly recommended restaurant is Orinos by the sea, this is a 5-10 drive and is well worth a visit but arrive early, I would guess about 5pm we arrived at 7 and had to wait for 40 minutes but it was worth it for the food, cocktails and views/sunset. We have never hired a car and manage fine but we did hire a buggy for the day from Golden rides opposite Phillipos supermarket, this was a great day out. Horse riding was also brilliant at George's Ranch, again a cab ride but only 10 mins. Paphos zoo was also a morning out and we all had an amazing time here. The free bus to the zoo runs from the end of the road. I highly recommend Villa Marina, Marina and Mikka were so helpful, we appreciated the welcome package, a lovely touch. the villa is beautiful and spacious. The pool is so warm, I have never spent to much time in a pool. It has absolutely everything you could want and need it's very homely.Thank you and we hope we can return next year
Just returned form a 2 week stay at Villa Marina. Wonderful, clean and spacious property ideally located. Marina was a wonderful host, being very responsive and more than happy to arrange airport taxis (to/from Larnaca), recommend car rentals, places to visit, eateries etc. Mikka looked after us whilst we were there and was easily accessible. Some wonderful restaurants within walking distance, otherwise the 615 bus will take you to the Coral Bay ‘strip’ and onwards directly into Paphos. Otherwise, good local taxi firms available. Villa is an ideal base from which to get around the western side of the island. Having a car for the entire holiday enabled us to get into the mountains and other places of interest. Hiring an off-road buggy to drive into the Akamas peninsula is a great fun day, as is renting your own boat for the day from Latchi watersports. Clearly the two highlights of the holiday apart from all the wonderful restaurants locally. Porto Antico (5 mins walk) was our favourite! Back to the villa, couldn’t fault it in any way. Pool was lovely and warm, the air conditioning very effective (especially at night!), kitchen was fully equipped as described and beds very comfortable. No grumbles from my family (wife, and two 20+ daughters) although they would have welcomed a full length mirror. Highly highly recommend this villa not just for the villa itself but also the super friendly support and availability of Marina. Thanks Marina!!
This is a beautiful, immaculate, spacious and well equipped villa with all mod cons and an extremely private well tended garden with pool within a short stroll of sandy beach, restaurants and the 615 bus into Coral Bay and Paphos. We particularly appreciated all the different seating, reclining and eating areas, inside and out making our stay very comfortable and relaxed. Thumbs up also to the wide steps into the pool and inflatables. Marina and her manager couldn't have been more helpful and I have no hesitation in recommending this villa for a wonderful hassle free holiday.
First of all Marina if I could give you 20 stars I would, your communication and effort is top notch, thank you! The villa interior is spacious, nicely laid out, well equipped and very comfortable. Air conditioned bedrooms were a joy in the heat and the choice for a/c downstairs was the right thing. Outside the villa is a lovely pool, sun beds + brolly, grassed area and various seating/dining areas (always somewhere in the shade). The kids were delighted with the selection of inflatables and also that there was enough space for them to kick a ball about (I think there may still be one in the hedge, sorry �) The villa is private and the road outside quiet as it is access only. Also much to the kids delight an ice-cream van came around in the afternoon!! Normally we wouldn't spend many days at our villa but head to the beach - this holiday we were happy to relax at our pool, the location was so pleasant. We used and enjoyed both the local beaches but found better snorkelling at Agios Georgios (turtle!!) and on the rocks below Aphrodite Baths. We loved DaVinci for Gelato, Yummie Yummie for take away kebab/pizza, Sea You for sunset and a hearty dinner. We also ate a few times at Seriani on the main strip - staff were friendly, good with the kids and the fish was fresh, well priced and bbq'd to perfection, yum! The big waterpark is a great day out but there are a few 'mini' waterparks at some of the Paphos hotels which are also great fun, especially if your kids are still a bit younger (mine are 7 & 9). We went to the one at King Evelthon Hotel. All in all a great holiday with a real mix of fun things to do in the sun and a fantastic place to call our home for 2 weeks!! Thanks Marina!!
Just returned from an absolutely amazing family holiday from this beautiful villa. We’ve had such a blast and made some terrific family memories. Perfectly located to the main strip where you’ll find plenty of places to eat and drink, a beautiful beach and stunning scenery. By far the most private property on the complex too. Stunning garden with lovely smelling plants and flowers all beautifully maintained. Cannot rate this highly enough. Also Marina and her maintenance team were absolute stars throughout the whole process, nothing was too much trouble and they are always happy to help. You will Not be disappointed! Thanks Marina, we hope to be back soon! Love Lauren, Reece and gan
Hello Marina, Well thats it our holiday has come to an end. How gutted are we! We have simply had an absolutely amazing time. We are a family who are always so very busy with work and the animals we dont get to really spend quality time together. We have done just that and i am so truly greatful to you for allowing us to stay in your fabulous villa once again for the second time and build such beautiful family memories. Our holiday has been simply perfect every part of it. I have experienced for the first time in my life parasailing which was awesome! A beautiful Horse ride and our Son and Daughter have enjoyed the freedom of the pool and the wonderful surrounding area exploring many places. It has left us realising we need more time together as a family and would like to look into the possibility of when the kids have finished school to move out here permanently. I have already spoken to a couple of Equestrian Stables regarding livery and got quotes for transporting the Horses over here.This has been a holiday i will cherish forever. We will most certainly be booking again but will definitely not be leaving it so long this time! I would like to say a massive THANKYOU for allowing us to stay in your stunning villa. From all of us much love from the Friend family. xxx
Our second stay at this absolutely amazing breathtaking villa. So many wonderful and beautiful memories made here as a family. Every detail in the pictures is what you get simply stunning. Fantastic area lots for the kids there is everything you need and more! Everyone is so kind and friendly and the service you get from Marina is absolutely superb. We will be back again!
Without doubt the previous reviews of this villa could not be more accurate. It is very large, well maintained and in a first class location. It is within 200 yards of the beach where you find the bus stop for buses into paphos. The owner Marina could not be more pleasant and helpful from my initial contact when booking the villa. Likewise any problems during your stay are immediately dealt with. Unfortunately we like many other holiday visitors were let down by visiting in January during the worst period of weather Cyprus has witnessed during the past 30 years. However please don’t be put off by this because the few days of weather we did have during our stay was warm showing what it is apparently like under normal circumstances. To sum up A1 accommodation. A1 communication just a shame we had no control over the freak weather we encountered. So many thanks Marina.
We had a had a fantastic holiday in marinas villa This villa is perfect weather like us you want to relax or you want to use it as a base.A typical day for us started with me chasing the polar bear out of the pool ( boy that waters cold in October) then a 5 min walk to the supermarket for fresh bread and newspaper then basically chilled by the pool . Then either went out to eat usually at the hole in the wall ( quiz night on Thursday) or a night in watching telly ( who new there was so many cooking or dancing shows ) 5 days in we turned the tv to find we had every sport and movie channels you could wish for, i felt a bit like joey in friends when he got free porn and didn’t turn the tv of for days ( don’t worry marina we didn’t do that ) This villa was just perfect for us and hopefully we will be back one day
Villa Marina The wife and I came out last September, for just a week to stay, For the first time at Villa Marina, in the beautiful Coral Bay. The sun it shone all week, we had great food beer and some wine, So we pledged to return this September, but for at least TWO weeks this time. We loved our first stay it was really great, but this year was even better, So I thought I’d write this cheesy little poem, or maybe, is it feta?? The Villa was how we remembered it, a proper welcoming home from home, Close to the lovely beaches bars and restaurants, to whence you can easily roam. There was just me and the wife, (no kids, what bliss), but there could’ve easily been more, In fact there are three comfortable bedrooms, so room for at least another four. There’s a DVD player and satellite TV, if "British Bake Off" you can’t do without, And plenty of good books in the villa, into which you can bury your snout! The pool has been relined and looks great, with new steps as well put in, It looks even more inviting than it did last year, which in my book is a definite win!! The sun beds are just so comfortable; many a lunch time snooze was had,And the sun never leaves the gorgeous garden, for which I’m sure you’ll all be glad. But watch out for the non-stop sunshine, it’s really awfully strong, You could get some serious sun burn, (trust me!!) if you stay out in the sun too long. As well in the garden there’s a Cypriot BBQ, we used it once or twice, Kebabs on the grill, a cold Keo in hand, it was really awfully nice!! So all in all what more can I say about staying in Villa Marina, Coral Bay, Just the biggest compliment I think anyone could give, “We hope to be back one day!!”
The villa is stunning ,bright and modern. Marina was so helpful from our first enquiry. Cannot recommend highly enough
We have just returned from a 2 week holiday here to celebrate my 40th birthday and my daughters 12th birthday. We arrived late at night and as we entered the villa myself and my daughter were pleasantly surprised to see gifts and cards left for us on arrival! Barry came round the next morning and he was lovely he also told us to not hesitate to get in touch if we needed anything. From the very start of booking this villa Marina has been fantastic and so helpful and made sure everything went smoothly for us. We went to Cyprus 2 years ago and stayed in a hotel and while this was fine we have all much preferred going to a villa. The villa itself was extremely clean, very spacious and had everything you could need. The pool and garden area is secluded which was brilliant we had many a lazy day around the pool and are missing it already! We hired a boat for the day from George's watersports at Latchi which was really good fun! We also went to corallia beach which was nice and quieter than Coral bay, we went into Paphos a few times and went to the medieval castle. Other than that we spent most of our time relaxing which was just what we needed. The kids absolutely loved the villa and spending all day in the pool and having BBQ's at night and of course going on gecko hunts! Lots of happy memories have been made!
Great villa, amazing country, lovely owner/host. Nothing was too much Trouble for Marina. As I’ve said before no more package deals for us. If all the owners and places are as amazing as this one, see you next year! Marina, my family still wish they were still in their ‘home from home’, thank you for that. Lx
Just back from another wonderful holiday in this fantastic villa. Everything from start to finish was brillInt and as always Marina was very attentive,cannot recommend this villa enough.
Villa Marina is perfect for a quiet and totally relaxing holiday. Situated on a secluded estate, one of the toughest decisions we had to make, while eating breakfast on the large patio, was to either relax around the Olympian swimming pool or stroll down to the beautiful sandy beach less than five minutes away. If, like us you decide to explore more of the Island there is a frequent and reliable bus service to Paphos and the Harbour, with onward connections to the whole of Cyprus. The interior of the villa is outstanding. A large fully equipped kitchen leads onto a comfortable lounge and dining area. Upstairs there are three large bedrooms one ensuite, and a family bathroom. Each bedroom has a balcony overlooking the stunning landscaped garden. It only takes five minutes to walk too a large well stocked supermarket, though it is a little pricey. Fifteen minutes further walking brings you to 'The Strip'. This is the heart of Coral Bay. There is a large Hypermarket here with a free return journey to help you with your heavy shopping. You will find a variety of great restaurants and bars here. Marina, the Villa owner is fantastic and very helpful. We recommend you ask her to organise the airport connection it is easier and cheaper. Also if you are arriving late in the evening book a welcome pack, you can't beat a cup of coffee after a long journey and free inflight drinks. This is the best Villa we have stayed in and we will definitely be returning.
This is a beautiful villa, that is completely private compared to surrounding villas. It is clean and has everything you would need, it was a real home from home. Barry and Elaine (the managers) are very helpful and answered any queries we had immediately. Marina (the owner) was excellent to deal with when booking the villa, she kept me informed of everything I needed to do and arranged all the transfers so there was no stress for me. It is a short walk to the beach of Corallia Bay and a 5 minute bus ride to Coral bay. The buses are very regular and you can get them straight to Paphos and then onto wherever you want to go. We ate out every night and can honestly say we didn't have a bad meal, everyone was very friendly and the taxi service excellent for the trips back to the villa from our nights out. We were looking for a relaxing holiday and I can honestly say that's exactly what we got, we were not one bit dissapointed and were reluctant to have to leave after our 14 days. I would definitely recommend this villa.
What an amazing property. Brilliant location. Well maintained, excellent both inside and outside. We had a lovely, relaxing stay. Communication with the owner is excellent. Property managers in Cyprus are super helpful. I can not recommend this property highly enough. 5 Star all round.
Just returned from a week at Villa Marina and what can I say. The Villa was phenomenal, it lived up to all of my expectations. I’ve stayed in the area before but your Villa exceeded my last experience there, and I’m certain to be returning. Barry and Elaine were super friendly and helpful, me and my friends had a fantastic week and got to really relax and unwind after what has been very busy few months. Couldn’t have chosen a better location or more helpful owner, thank you Marina.
We always stay at this villa and have been for the last 10 years or more. The villa is always immaculate and well maintained and has a beautiful garden and pool to relax around. When we visit in the winter the villa is warm and cosy inside as it can be chilly in the evenings. Five minute walk to a beautiful sandy beach and easy walking distant to supermarkets and number of local bars. Great communication with the owner. Would highly recommend,
Location, location! Very short walk from beautiful Corallia beach, clear waters and safe for small children. Villa very well maintained, very clean and comfortable, in quiet cul de sac.Spacious rooms, high ceilings for keeping cool in Summer. Master ensuite, so bright and sunny, and comfortable bed . Gardens secluded by hibiscus hedge. Beautiful coastal walk from Corallia Beach to sea caves and Tavernas. Will definately return.
We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week holiday in Villa Marina. The villa is lovely and everything that we could want in self catering accommodation, everything worked well, instructions were good and Barry proved to be very helpful and informative. The pool area is extremely private and you are not overlooked, as some of the other villas are within village 12. The location of the villa is fab, and although we did hire a car, you really do not need to do so. The 615 bus is literally just around the corner, which will take you into Paphos and from there you can connect with other buses i.e. to the old town, should you choose to do so.
I would certainly recommend the villa to family and friends and would certainly book again if holidaying in the Coral Bay area.
Finally Marina was very helpful and extremely quick in responding to any queries, bookings etc. Thank you x
Another fabulous two weeks spent at Villa Marina - spent two weeks there September 2016, and have already booked to go back in 2018. I love this fabulous villa, its like home from home. Everything you need is catered for, it is so well equipped and furnished, and it is kept so clean - I have been to villas before where we have had to wash the crockery and clean cupboards before we could use them, not so here, everything is immaculate. The villa is really spacious, and the garden is beautiful and so secluded, and the pool is great and looks stunning at night when it is lit. The location is ideal, quiet and away from the hustle and bustle - but less than 5 minute walk from beautiful Corallia Beach, some restaurants and a supermarket, and then there is a great regular bus service which goes from Corallia Beach along the coastline, to places like the Coral Bay Strip - 5 mins by bus, where there are lots of restaurants, and a very good large supermarket, and then on to Pathos. Marina the owner is superb, so helpful and friendly, and it is such a pleasure to communicate with her, and she is always so quick to respond. Barry and Elaine - who manage the villa in Cyprus, are really friendly and helpful to. Can't recommend this villa enough - but whether I should be as I will end up not being able to book it myself due to demand !!
We spent a fantastic week in Villa Marina and it was exactly as it said on the tin!! Top notch, lovely and peaceful, in a fantastic location and the sun shone continuously for the whole week!! The sun beds were placed in "Position A" when we arrived and that's where they stayed!! We've stayed in many villas over the years and this was one of, if not, "The Best" we've stayed in. Unfortunately we were only there for a week, but never mind, cos we've already booked two weeks back in Villa Marina next year!! Only 49 weeks, 4 days and 14 hours till we fly out again, (I think) not that we're counting!! The villa was spotless when we arrived and we immediately felt at home, as that what it's like, a home from home but with a much better climate!! We met Barry (Marina's Villa manager) on the Sunday, who is a lovely fella and a mine of information if needed. We've stayed in Coral Bay before so knew most of the "hot spots" but he put us onto one gem of a restaurant, Oniro's By The Sea!! WOW!! What a setting and the food and drinks were fantastic and very reasonable!! Just turn right out of the estate, go straight ahead for 2k's and you'll see it signposted on the left. I won't say too much and spoil it, but it's well worth a visit!! A couple of local bars and restaurants within a five minute stroll and another 15 mins takes you to the strip which is a bit more livelier with more choice of bars and eateries. We saw "Boy George and Pink Elvis" one night in Blazing Saddles which was a great laugh, always some thing going on there and good for a giggle!! There's a couple of good restaurants on the strip, The Italian at the top and a New Tex Mex type place opposite which we love!! Plenty more to choose from, from Thai to take away Pizza, what ever takes your fancy!! For beach lovers you've got all of a 3 minute walk to the lovely beach. We had a look when we got there but it's not for us, the sand gets everywhere!! We love nothing more than a lazy brunch then spending the day by the gorgeous pool on the very comfortable sun beds, reading, listening to music, the occasional dip to cool off and chilling out ALL day!! If that's what floats your boat and it does ours, Villa Marina is the place to do it!! Marina herself, from the first point of contact 'till the day we left, was always available and very accommodating for all our questions and query's. Arnie once said, "I'll be back" and that's the biggest compliment we can give, cos "we will be back!" 5*s FOR DEFO!
We have just returned from 2 weeks of waking up in paradise every day the villa is absolutely stunning inside and out the space is just fantastic. Living space is huge lots of storage in the bedrooms and nice that every bedroom has a balcony to take in the amazing views. Garden was great for our 2 children aged 3 and 6 to play around in without worrying about them and the pool was the icing on the cake my 3 year old spent most of the day in there as it was the right height for him to stand in he can now swim on his own too. Villa is in a great location minutes to the best beach in paphos and the bus stops on the main road by the villa which we got everywhere buy a weekly ticket if u know you will be using it a lot works out cheaper. Lots of choice of restaurants our favourite was samisen celebrated my husbands 40th in there made it lots of fun. Phillpos supermarket was fantastic and supplied everything we needed at a good price and drove you back home with all your shopping which was great. Overall a fantastic holiday in a stunning villa thank you marina for sharing it with us would love to go back one day.
This villa is just the most wonderful I have ever stayed. It is exceptionally well maintained.
On booking the Owner could not have been more helpful or thoughtful of our needs. As we got married in Cyprus it made everything so much easier for us.
The villa is set quietly back from the bustle and the beaches a few minutes walk and the main strip (restaurants and bars) about 15 minutes stroll.
This was our second time staying at Villa Marina. We had a fabulous time and the villa was absolutely perfect again. We ranged in age from 3 to 75 and everybody loved it. My children didn't want to leave and my three year old has told everyone about her "holiday home"! The villa is spotless and the location is perfect for the beach, restaurants and shops. We hired a car and did lots of exploring to Lara, Kathikas, Latsi, Polis. We will be back again!
WOW what a great month we have had at your beautiful villa. The weather has been great everyday and we used your lovely pool on many occasions. We have watched the flowers come into full bloom in your beautiful garden. We have been coming to Cyprus for 11 years and always stayed in a hotel, this holiday has been so different for us and we have loved it. Our daughter came out to stay with us for a week and loved it. I know she has told many of her friends what a fantastic villa she stayed in and has recommended it as a great place to stay. Barry and Elaine have been great and are such lovely people. It was good to be able to call them if we had any issues. Thank you for a great holiday and we hope to be back soon.
Overall we had a lovely holiday and enjoyed every minute spent at the beautiful Villa. Would definitely visit again in the future.
Came across this outstanding Villa by chance. Have booked several holidays via Owners Direct but this was one of the best. Villa did not disappoint was exactly as pictured and as described. Marina handled our booking with such efficiency and answered any questions immediately. The villa managers Barry and Elaine were friendly and helpful and the villa was spotless. Being able to order provisions in advance meant that we could unpack and relax - especially as we had ordered a bottle of wine. Can recommend Phillipos supermarket (it is located off of the strip). They do a fantastic home delivery service. Once you get to the till just ask for home delivery a young man packs your shopping and drives you and your shopping back to your accommodation fantastic. Great restaurants in the area, too many to choose but can recommend Coral King (along the strip) great on Greek night. Siriani, Yiannis which is on the beach great meze. A car is not necessary as great local amenities and for further afield a great bus service. We cannot wait to return
Clean and spacious villa with wonderful private garden and pool. 2 mins walk to a pretty beach with clear and still water - ideal for children. Care hire not essential as beach and restaurants are walking distance but would highly recommend hiring one for a day or two to explore the beautiful surrounding area and find those fabulous more remote tavernas!
We have just spent a week at this property and have to say the whole experience was excellent. The booking process was easy and Marina is very quick to reply. I only gave her a few days notice as it was a last minute booking but she sorted everything for me. Barry and Elaine (the property managers) are very helpful too and were quick to help out with any issues. I liked the fact we could order in supplies for breakfast as we arrived late and would have struggled in the morning feeding the kids. We were able to chill out the first day and not have to rush out to get food in. There is no need to hire a car as everything is in walking distance. The Coral Bay strip is just up the road and the fantastic Frog & Toad pub just a short walk from the villa. Sunday brunch was a lively affair!
The only downside for me is the fact this property is fully booked all summer as I would love to return soon. We will visit again as soon as we can! Thanks to Marina and family for sharing your home with us xxx
We spent a very pleasant November break in Villa Marina. The weather again didn't disappoint with daytime temperatures ranging from 22 to 27 degrees with warm sun and blue skies, pleasant sunbathing weather. Such a contrast to home!
We chose Villa Marina because of the number of its 5 star reviews and like the weather it didn't disappoint. We found it clean,spacious and well equipped with completely private gardens full of flowers. Just what we like. Every morning we had a leisurely breakfast in the suntrap outside the kitchen, a great way to start the day and at sunset we sat on the balcony outside the bedroom to get the last rays of the sun. Just right! The location was perfect for us and though we had a car for the two weeks we rarely used it. A short walk took us to Corallia Beach and restaurants and bars. The bus terminus is beside the beach and we caught the bus to Coral Bay, if we felt too lazy to walk, or to Paphos for some shopping and a coffee or a night out. Paphos is still buzzing at this time of year.
We went for a relaxing and refreshing break in Villa Marina and Coral Bay and that's just what we got.
We arrived late at night but the instructions we had for both getting to the villa and getting in was so simple we were in straight away! Marina had provided a car hire contact who were also excellent and collected us from the airport and drove us to our car then on to the property so it was easily found. Upon arrival we couldn't believe the villa itself. It completely excelled our expectations and was beautifully set out and furnished. We hardly ate out as it was such a pleasure to cook in and eat at one of the many outdoor spaces. We had two BBQs which was great fun! The pool area was lovely and the pool used daily. One lovely thing was the privacy the outdoor spaces had. It was a quick and easy walk to the beach. The contact we had with Marina prior to our stay was excellent and she answered all my questions very promptly! We were visited the morning after our arrival by the property managers who were also lovely. All in all a fantastic stay, the villa was beautiful, relaxing and had everything we needed. It was fantastic to just be able to relax. Thank you for a lovely stay.
The villa is very well appointed within easy access of the beach; a small but adequate supermarket; dive centre and beach-side restaurants. The garden and pool area is secluded by hedges and there are ample sun-loungers and sunshades provided. The perimeter of the property has several shaded areas, ideal for retreating from the mid-day sun, and very efficient air conditioning when shade alone is not enough. The local bus service runs at 15 minute intervals providing easy access into Paphos and Paphos harbour so a car is only required to explore further afield. We were met the morning after our arrival by Barry who provided a wealth of useful local information and a contact number in case of any problems. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Spotless villa with lovely garden and would not hesitate to come back again. Marina very helpful and considered everything with arranging the stay. Could not have wished for any better from the customer service or the villa itself.
Have just come back from a wonderful week at Villa Marina. I have been to many villas over the last 35 years, and this is by far the best. Everything is catered for and it is just like home from home. The villa is very well kept and clean and has everything you need, and is in a lovely location. The outdoor area is superb, with beautiful secluded gardens, and a wonderful pool and plenty of areas to relax in. Even without a car, the villa is very well placed, as there is a great bus service you can use, with a bus stop just round the corner outside the local super market, or just across the road down by the beach. The fare is 1.50 euros during the day and 2.50 euros after 9pm, the 615 takes you to Coral Bay Strip (about 4 mins) or anywhere along the route to Pathos Harbour. Booking the holiday with Marina was a pleasure from start to finish, Marina's response time to queries was brilliant. We only met Barry and Elaine briefly but they were very good and responded quickly. Matt, their son, was there the day we arrived, and he was brilliant and answered any questions we had, and showed us how various things worked and where they were. Truly was a wonderful holiday, and only wished we had been there longer. I would recommend the villa to anyone.
We chose to book this villa because there were so many positive reviews. I am pleased to say that we were not disappointed. When we arrived the villa was clean modern and fully equipped. The pool is large and just the right temperature with lots of shade to escape the midday sun. There are lots of outdoor toys to keep the kids happy too.The location is fantastic, there is a beach 5 minutes walk away with restaurants and water sports on offer. The bus into Coral bay and Phapos terminates at the beach so you wont miss your stop after a late night on the tiles! The property is well managed and on the few occasions we required something they were brilliant!
Marina the owner was fantastic from the start of our booking providing all the information that we required. There is a guest book in the villa that is more like a lonely planet of the local area and most of the suggestions we tried! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a lovely family holiday.
The villa was everything we expected and more. It was in a beautiful area and close to the coral bay strip which was very convenient. A very short walk, two-three minutes, to a beautiful beach. The rooms were very comfortable and homely. If we needed anything the property managers were very helpful. The pool and yard were great. The villa itself was one of the best aspects of our holiday. Everyone enjoyed it and during my next trip to Cyprus I will most definitely be staying in Villa Marina. I am very thankful for a great experience. Coming all the way from America was very worth it.
Well what can I say, so sad to be saying goodbye to Cyprus. Fanastic villa, fanastic weather, fanastic people and fanastic country !!
Villa was everything we expected and more, loved the pool to cool off in balmy hot days. We ate at nearly every restaurant on the strip over the past 14 days. Cannot fault the food. We hired a car from a rental place near O'Solomons, would recommend taking a trip to Onino by the sea, to see the shipwreck and Yialas Taverna to watch the sunset , great swordfish !! We visited Kourion Beach lovely nautural beach and great restaurant.
Elaine & Barry provided great customer service when we needed them. Hopefully we will return next year. Enjoy we did!!
Now back to reality to Kentish weather.
We had a fantastic family holiday, the villa is lovely and comfortable with a great private pool. The villa is situated in a great location , closed to the beach but also a stone throw away from the strip. We will certainly be booking in the future.
We had a fabulous holiday. Your villa has the best location and everything about it was amazing. We would recommend your villa to anyone who wanted a holiday to remember. Thank you for giving us a chance to to have a fabulous holiday. We will be returning to Cyprus very soon as we met a lot of really nice people who we want to meet again.
My husband and I stayed at the villa the month of February. We chose it based not only on the lovely photos and the ideal location in Coral Bay, but also based on the positive comments by past guests. They were right!
Rather than repeat the many assets the villa boasts, I would add that one of our favourite was the ample natural light. Many large patio doors and windows allow not only access to the various sides of the villa (shade/sun), but allow the glorious sunshine in. The quietness of the neighbourhood was welcome as we spent time sitting outside on the various patios. Bus routes were so convenient that we made good use of them to explore the island. The few times we required assistance with a small problem it was quickly and pleasantly attended to by either the owner or her property manager. There are many other reviews listing the things to do and restaurants which we found to be reliable.
We would highly recommend a stay at this lovely villa.
Our stay at Villa Marina was a perfect Christmas break in the sun. Marina and her management team could not have been more helpful both in helping us organise in advance and looking after us during our stay. The villa itself had everything we needed in terms of white goods and hardware as well as plenty of space and a very accurate set of local recommendations. The location was ideal for us - just outside of the main population but with beaches and amenities all within an easy walk. Highly recommended!
Well, what can I say - just back and missing Cyprus already. This villa really was home from home - it was beautiful I would say the best villa I have stayed in for cleanliness, location, layout and it was very well equipped. I would certainly book again in the future. We met Barry, the property manager, who was very knowledgeable about the area and helpful regarding the excellent supermarket, Philipos, whose delivery/taxi service combined was most welcome! The villa is in a lovely quiet complex - very private. There are a few nice bars and restaurants nearby and the beach is a stroll across the road. The bus service is excellent, running regularly to take you to the coral bay strip, where there are many bars and restaurants for all tastes and budget, or farther afield to Paphos if you prefer. All in all this was one of the best holiday villas I have stayed in, I can't wait to go back!
Amazing holiday as it was our daughters wedding. The villa spacious, homely, clean, relaxing. It had on either side of it a dinning table and chairs so you could either make use of the sun or choose the shade if you wanted to depending on the time of day. The Gardens were beautiful, lots of flowers and very green and colourful. As the villa is a corner plot the pool was at the side but also at the back of the house, completely unoverlooked with really high thick bushy hedges. The ensuite bedroom had a sea view and the 2 side bedrooms had 2 single beds each in them with a bath/shower toilet room inbetween them to share. Another toilet downstairs, so plenty of room not to get in each others way when you are staying with friends or family. Everything was sorted and the directions from the owner Marina that she sent us were easy to follow. Also manual very good. Good selection of dvd for kids and lots of books and journals to read and some games. The kitchen was very spacious as was the fridge, lots of storage clean, and with a dishwasher so not much to wash up & washing machine if you have the inclination. All the utensils and crockery etc you could need. We had a lovely wedding day on a yacht, we visited st Gerorges Bay in a restaurant near a church and watched the sunset, panoramic views and we went to Adonis Baths which were beautiful and bathed in the freezing cold waters, my daughter and grandson climed the tree and jumped in, got some lovely photos. bit of a hair raising journey along mountain roads to get there but doable. We also visited a donkey sanctuary in the hills bought some carob and only 2 euros for whole bag and fed them they were a delight . My grandson went on a donkey rid into the mountains we led the donkey it was a great day and experience for him. . sunbathed locally on Corialis Beach and many times in the very comfortable villa on lazy relaxing days. Villa quite quiet. So all round had a brilliant time in lovely surroundings in the villa and in a beautiful country. Just got to say the owner Marina was so helpful on everything we needed but my husband left his watch in the safe and we contacted her when we got back, she was so helpful in contacting the occupants and between them we got our watch back as so grateful to her and the other guest who came after us. Would definitely recommend and go back there again.
We have just returned from a two week stay in Villa Marina. It was well appointed and very clean and spacious. The main reason we booked the Villa in the first place was because of the garden and we were not disappointed. There was always somewhere to find some shade and the planting around the pool is beautiful and it also makes the pool completely private. The location is great for Corallia beach, we which loved, it is great for small children as the water is calm. The Villa owner is very helpful and supplied us with plenty of information so that we could maximise our time. We rented an open top jeep Suzuki Vitara locally which was delivered to us and was great fun for our children aged 12 and 9, all thanks to the owner. There are plenty of things to do and we would recommend a car even though the bus service is very good. The car allowed us to go to Paphos and Limassol water parks, Latchi harbour twice for boat trips and a few other restaurants and markets etc. that were further away or off the beaten track. It's a great Villa, the car is a personal choice depending what sort of holiday you like. Go on book it!
We had a wonderful time in this amazing villa! Fantastic pool and secluded garden. Lovely beach and bay about 5 minutes walk. Great location for full days and peaceful nights! We loved the meat/fish/veg/wine at the nearby Phillipos supermarket and had many a long, relaxing BBQ.
The surprise highlight away from the villa was catching the Greek drama festival that was on this summer - we saw Electra at the ancient Odeon in Paphos [about 25 minutes away on frequent bus service] and the kids thought it was completely wonderful!
Property management team were extremely helpful, kind and always at the end of the phone when we needed them - very assuring.
We had an amazing time in Cyprus, thank you, and your villa was just perfect in every way!!! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left everything was great. The welcome pack was very much appreciated. The pool, gardens and villa were just gorgeous. We hired a car from Nestor and Maria for 6 days who were very reasonable and helpful. We went on a boat trip from Latchi for the day which was great. We also went to Watermania near Limmisol,as recommended by you in the comment book which was a really fun day out. We walked to the strip every night and really enjoyed meals in Seriani, Coral King and the Japanese one? can't remember the name.
Thanks again for a great villa !!
Very satisfied with the villa, neighbourhood and location. Good choice for couples with kids as it is quite and close to the beach. Clean pool and plot, guality beddings, and the welcome pack was most welcome after a long drive from the airport. Property is well looked after, everything is in order and well maintained.
The Barry and Elaine team does a great job in ensuring the great vacation.
Will gladly recommend to my friends with kids.
We had a lovely weeks stay at this beautiful villa and i can`t rate it highly enough, the villa is perfect in every way and the pool and gardens immaculate, such a shame we had to come home.
The nearest beach is Corralia beach and is a lovely spot just 2 hundred yards away, if you want to go to the main coral beach it is just a nice stroll away or for the less energetic a short bus trip.
The bus service is excellent, just 3 euros for both of us up to coral bay, the strip or the 20 minute trip to Paphos Harbour.
Marina is very helpful and makes sure everything is just so, i would highly recommend it.
We have just returned from 12 days in Cyprus at Villa Marina where we had the best family holiday ever. We are a family of five (children aged 9,7 and 5) and the villa was just perfect. The garden and pool area was so pretty - the flowers smelt lovely and having the grass was great for the kids to run around on bare foot. It was really private as well. I noticed none of the other villas around had grass and did not seem as private as Villa Marina. The villa has everything you need- it is very spacious and clean and really comfy beds. The location is good- nice and quiet and just a stroll to the nearest beach which was also great for the family. The bus service is amazing- they come every five minutes and really cheap so we did not bother hiring a car. You can get a bus to the water park which takes you directly outside. We did walk into the main Coral Bay strip a couple of times and got the bus back - it does take about 20 mins with the kids and would not recommend in the sun- the bus takes a couple of mins. There is a good selection of restaurants on the strip- I found the guest review book inside the villa helpful for recommendations. This is the first Villa holiday I have ever booked and I found the positive reviews really helpful and in this case they are all true. Marine was very helpful and so quick to respond with any questions or queries- a very stress free holiday from start to finish!
My friends and I had a wonderful week of post-university relaxation at Villa Marina. The villa is situated in the perfect location, only a short walk to two beautiful beaches and also in walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets- ideal for not having a hire-car. The inside of the villa is well presented and well equipped. We were especially fans of the filtered tap water, so there was no fuss buying huge containers of bottled water. The outside space is also wonderful. There is plenty of furniture to choose from in the evenings. The sunbeds were also very comfortable and the pool was a great temperature for a refreshing dip. The villa managers Elaine and Barry were also super helpful. They were willing to advise in person and via text, big thanks to them as well as the lovely Marina. Great holiday all round, thank you very much!
We had a lovely stay in Villa Marina. It had everything we wanted. It is a great location for exploring the area but equally good if you just want to stay put and go to the beach across the road or relax in the garden by the pool. Barry popped round the day after arrival to answer any questions we had, although everything was fine it was nice to know if there were any problems he was on hand. We had a very relaxing holiday and would definitely recommend to others.
We had a very comfortable, relaxing, time here. Great location, not far from anything at all but just far enough that you can sit in the garden and relax. A sandy beach is literally just a couple of minutes away and you can walk into the sea without having to step on red hot pebbles! Plenty of shops and restaurants in the area. It's a great location if you want to explore the area. Paphos, Polis and Latchi are all within a decent driving distance. The biggest thing we noticed when we walked into the villa was just how clean it smelled. It is obviously well maintained. It had plenty of everything we needed for our stay and we would certainly consider staying here again
What can I say a totally wonderful property, which had everything we needed, was like going home from home. Beautiful and clean, very spacious, stunning.
Location was perfect walking distance to beach, shops, restaurants.
A car is definitely not needed as there is a very reliable bus service.
Garden is very secure and peaceful, just what we needed as we were holidaying with my 3 year old and my parents. Pool excellent, spent most days in it.
Would definitely recommend this holiday property.
We loved it so much that we have already booked for next year.
What can I say...... The holiday was fab from start to finish. Flights, transfers, villa, weather you name it, it all went superbly!.
Your villa is amazing, our son and daughter couldn't get over how spacious it was and having their own bedroom each was great, lots of space for everyone.
It has everything to help make you feel at home and we didn't want for anything.
We met Barrie the day after we arrived who quickly sorted out the wifi access for us. He was really nice and helpful and helped us feel right at home.
We walked to Corallia beach a couple of the days (literally two minutes across the road), we went on a jeep safari (from SeaCave taxis) and the boys enjoyed a Jet ski experience as well at the local beach.
Other days were spent lazing by the pool and enjoying the sunshine.
Nightlife was just enough, the strip was busy but not to busy. The kids particularly liked Andria restaurant and my son now wants BBQ ribs for every meal!!!
Thank you Marina for sharing your fantastic villa with us, and the personal commitment you have given me throughout the booking process, you made it so simple!!
I would highly recommend to friends and family and will definitely be returning in the future..
We stayed at Villa Marina for two weeks as we were getting married at the Coral Beach Hotel on 17 September 2014. We knew about this fantastic villa as my friend also stayed here in 2009 when she got married at the same venue and I knew as soon as we had booked our wedding that I didn’t want to stay anywhere else.
My husband and I stayed there for four nights before our family joined us for the remainder of our stay and we all had such a wonderful time. Everything about the villa is faultless. It is perfectly kitted out for socialising, we held a BBQ for our friends and family one evening around the outside dining table and the pool area and garden are the best in the complex. So much space and plenty of sunbeds, we even had inflatables to play with that we presume had been left from the previous occupants and my husband, brother and dad enjoyed being big kids in the pool with these!
I could go on and on about how brilliant our stay was but to cut it short, here’s a few things why it’s so good: walking distance to Coral Beach Hotel, Corallia Beach, small supermarket for your essentials and also the bus stop which takes you into Coral Bay strip or Paphos Harbour for €1.50. Clean, comfortable rooms, wonderful pool & outside space and it felt like a home from home.
The owners (Marina and Huw) are so helpful and kind, we had a wedding card and bottle of champagne when we arrived which was so lovely. Marina has been fantastic throughout the entire booking process and helped me with my random queries for wedding related things too, as well as helping us with our car hire etc. The villa management team, Barry & Elaine were very friendly, we only needed to talk to them once about joining the WIFI in the villa as everything else was brilliant.
It really is a fabulous villa, I almost don’t want to write such a good review as it runs the risk of the villa being booked up for when we want to return! But if you do stay here, you’re guaranteed to have an excellent time, we can’t wait to return.
This is a superb property, really spacious, extremely well kept and great for us and our 2 young boys (1 and 3). We struggled to get them out of the pool which was always warm, from first thing in the morning to last thin at night. The garden is also very private as well as spacious which was great.
The inside was very modern and comfortable with air conditioning in the lounge and each of the bedrooms, which is an essential when the temperature was up to 35-40 degress during our stay. Everything that we needed was there and everything worked perfectly. Even if that hadn't been the case the property agent Barry popped round the first morning to make sure everything was OK.
Locationwise it was close to the beach and not far from the main strip in Coral Bay where there were plenty of restaurants and bars. If you head the other way look out for Orion by the sea, which overlooks a shipwreck down by the coast - go there at sunrise.
We've learned over the years to trust the ratings on holiday Rentals, and with 2 young kids we want a seamless holiday and apartment with no hastle. This was exactly what we got here and we'd thoroughly recommend this place.
One other point - Marina was extremely helpful and always responded quickly to emails, just what you need when organising a holiday. Excellent all round.
Well what can I say, what you see is what you get, only it looks so much better in reality! Lovely private garden, quiet cul de sac, spacious, crisp, clean villa...perfect.
The property was well maintained throughout, a pool man and gardener visited, during our stay, however they are not intrusive.
From the moment we contacted the owner, to arrange our booking, the service was exceptional, warm, friendly, helpful and professional. All the information we needed to enjoy our stay was provided and when we decided to hire a car, we were given a reputable and reasonable car hire firm.
The management team, greeted us the day after our arrival and they are on hand throughout, day or night and as we had booked the mid stay clean, we found them to be very professional and did not intrude upon the holiday at all, all in all from start to finish a very smooth holiday.
Whilst there is no need to have a car, as there are local amenities, we chose to have one, however coral bay strip is a 15 minute walk and the beach opposite the villa is perfect for watersports.
Our family particularly enjoyed the serianni and coral king restaurants, we also visited the Yilios Tavern, the setting was sublime.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone, it is perfect and our thanks go out to Marina and family.
The villa was perfect for our needs. We travelled with our two daughters and one daughter's boyfriend, all in their early twenties, so we wanted somewhere that did not require a car so that they could go out independently and the villa location was perfect for that. The villa complex is small, quiet with some local pubs, restaurants and a very frequent, cheap bus service if you can't face the 20 minute walk to the main strip in Coral Bay. The bus is also ideal for trips to Paphos and the archaeological sites.
The pool, gardens and outside seating areas are particularly good and well maintained. The villa is very clean, well equipped and had everything we needed.
Marina is very helpful during the booking process and the local property managers are very welcoming and helpful during your stay.
We had not travelled to South Cyprus before and found the Coral Bay resort to be very pleasant, not at all boisterous or tacky. The beach just across the road from the villa complex was not too crowded and better for swimming than the main Coral Bay beach.
There is a good choice of restaurants which were all good, our favourites being Trattoria La Vigna for gorgeous steak and the local Spice Hut for a very good Indian.
There is a Mr Whippy Ice cream van that comes to the villa complex daily which we managed to catch a couple of times and he does great specials in a large cup including frozen strawberries and ice cream or champagne with lemon sorbet, very good value and extremely refreshing to cool off with around the pool.
What can i say other than thankyou, The villa Marina is a stunning place to be both inside and out from the comfort of the rooms to the beautiful secluded garden. Myself and the family had the most wonderful and relaxing hoilday we could have asked for. The Villa itself was lovely the beach at corallia and the coral bay strip had everything you could wish for. I would like to take the time to say thankyou for the helpful notes and easy directions you supplied they were perfect. The villa is a credit to you and yours. We are planning on returning in the future and would thoroughly reccomend the villa Marina to anyone wishing to have a relaxing comfortable and hassle free holiday.
This is a great time of year to visit Cyprus. Weather still superb, late 20s every day. The villa was first class. Immaculately maintained and every thing you need. A treat to have balconies to all of the bedrooms and lovely to be able to see the sea from two of them. We chose this villa primarily for its location, the entrance is just across the road from corallia beach - very safe, sandy beach - perfect location. But the villa was also great for venturing further afield. A short drive by car took us to some stunning locations, completely un spoilt and marvellous for swimming and snorkelling. Back at the villa, the one thing that really sets this property apart if the gardens. This is a completely private large plot. The gardens were beautiful and very well thought out. The pool was a fantastic size. Particularly noteworthy was the thoughts put into the outside eating areas. Two terraces with table and chairs to the front and the rear of the property enabling you to make the most of the sun or shade. We also loved the comfortable seating area off the lounge terrace, so nice to sit and enjoy a few drinks ahead of supper - great BBQ too. Thanks for thinking of everything - hugely recommend.
This is a truly lovely villa in a perfect location, close to everything including shops, restaurants, sandy beaches, nature walks. The villa itself is spacious, light and boasts a beautiful and private garden. We spent a perfect holiday here and would sincerely recommend it to anyone coming to Cyprus.
The villa was great, and fully lived up to expectations. In a great location, in being so close to the bay and peaceful, and I can't think of anything that could have been better to be honest. Everything is in such good order, very clean and the garden is lovely and a very unique feature in my view. I particularly liked the pool and the outdoor shower - very civilised. It was a pleasure liaising with Marina.the owner who was very attentive to our needs and provided some very helpful advice and guidance to help us make the most of our stay. We would be highly likely to recommend this property for a family looking for a break in a lovely house, with super garden and very well located in Coral Bay area, close to lots of places of interest.
Our stay at Villa Marina was luxury from the minute we arrived. Marina arranged airport transfers which despite our flight running late went without a hitch. The villa was spotless;spacious and had everything we needed. The gardens were absolutely stunning with blooms bursting with colour. The pool area is very private with high hedges surrounding it..Ideal for those not so keen to be seen baring a bit of flesh!! There are various options around the villa for alfresco eating..All in all the perfect villa and location. We returned from our first visit 3 days ago and have already booked for next year. The location is perfect for access to the beach and bus terminal. We were able to use the buses like a taxi service with one passing every 10-15 minutes. You can get the bus as far as Paphos for 1.50 euro. We found Coral Bay to be a lovely location for couples with plenty choices on food and entertainment. On a hot night you have the option of returning to the villa for a bit of skinny dipping...Not that we even considered that!!! If you want nice; clean and private surroundings with the bizz close by this is the place for you. Barry and Elaine look after you well and make every effort to ensure your stay is made as comfortable as possible.
My wife, 4 year old son, sister and mother had a week in Marina's villa in October. the weather was great, the beach perfect and the sea warm. we had a great time, villa is well positioned and kitted out having most things that you need, don't forget the beach towels though (as we did!!). The tv, dvd player and dvds were a welcome distraction for those evenings in and the villa was very comfortable to spend time in. There is a regular bus service that picks up at the bottom of the complex and runs into the main coral bay strip, else its a 20min walk or a short drive. car is not necessary for a short trip as both beaches are within a walk and the bus is regular. The main supermarket in coral bay also deliver you and your shopping if need be which is very handy. we had a small issue with the air con which the property managers (Barry and Elaine) easily fixed with no fuss, they were also on hand for any questions we had and very helpful. Quiet location, good pool and toys (pool a bit cool in October, but the sea made up for it). All in all a lovely week away and a villa to recommend - finally, our sons blue bunny failed to make the trip back with us, but Marina was kind enough to arrange for its safe return, most to the delight of our son - thanks Marina!!
We have lost count now on how many times we have stayed at Villa Marina!! We come to Cyprus at least 3 times a year for the past 4 years and would never dream of staying any where else! You could not wish for an outstanding place to stay. Marina has thought of every thing for this villa , to the tiniest details. From the first time you enter the villa you go WOW and even after 4 years it still takes our breath away. We have stayed 2 times now at xmas and have cooked a full turkey with all the trimmings for 8 on xmas day last year!! The space outside is stunning from the private garden with the pool and sun loungers with soft cushions to the lovely rattan sofas to relax in on an evening with a glass of wine. If you didn't want to you don't have to leave the villa as there is every thing you need there. The owner Marina is wonderful and nothing is too much trouble for her. You will always be able to contact her for any thing. Her property managers Barry and Elaine are amazing , they all make a very good team to make your stay memorable. We cant wait to return again next year!!! Its just a shame that we always have to leave!!. Thank you Marina for an amazing Villa and wonderful holidays.
This is our 7th time staying at this stunning villa. I think we have now called it OUR 2nd home, if only!! The villa still has the WOW factor every time you arrive. Marina as always covers every thing to the tiniest detail, nothing is ever too much trouble for her and her amazing property managers Barry and Elaine. The villa inside is has every thing you could wish for and is really comfortable. Outside is just Stunning!! The pool is great and the gardens are beautiful and very private. You are not overlooked by any one which is great if you want some private relaxing sunbathing. You even have lovely soft sun lounger cushions which makes you want to lounge around all day! You will always NOT want to leave this villa as it truly is a stunning, relaxing, home from home place to stay. Thank you again Marina for making our holidays truly memorable.

Walking into the villa after hours of travelling was amazing, the open space layout of the villa, the cleanliness and the pool ... wow. Marina had arranged for a welcome pack...including an extra special addition a bottle of something sparkly for that special birthday. The weather was super for us and we will always remember walking from the villa in the warm evenings to get a meal (only a 20 min gentle stroll to the centre of Coral Beach), our son swimming in the pool at night with the pool lights on, and playing scrabble outside with a cup of tea in the early evening once the daylight had gone - wonderful. The villa has everything you might require and a large supermarket 10 mins away. The property manager comes to visit the day after arrival just to see if everything is OK and to make sure you have an enjoyable holiday. What was nice was this villa came with that personal touch.
Just got back after two weeks in Villa Marina in July - We loved it and had the best holiday - thanks to Marina for providing everything a holiday maker could want and to Edith and Barry for the little touches like leaving a light on for our late arrival and giving us the local knowledge! I was amazed that supermarkets were open till 9 on a Sunday, but was also glad that we had opted to purchase a shopping pack through Marina as we arrived after 11pm and had a frige with beer in it to start the holiday and yoghurt and honey for breakfast! The Villa was exactly as we'd seen in the photos - clean, comfy and beautiful. Oh and huge!!! We live in a cottage at home! The pool area being spacious and hot hot hot! - again with all we needed right there. (The pool and wifi being an excellent combo for our 16 yr old!) Location was perfect with Coralia Beach just across the road and for us the Akanas peninsula right on our doorstep. (We'd hired a car for the fortnight because I'm not able to walk far and because we like to explore). We did this a lot and found the beach underneath the 'Baths of Aphrodite Restaurant' to be the most beautiful place to snorkel - saw all kinds of fish/eel/starfish and even a sea cucumber! We also took a boat out from Latchi to the Blue Lagoon and my son and I got splashed in the face all the way there and all the way back!! We hated it! Snorkelling was good though although it was a struggle to get me back in the boat!!! Would reccommend getting a boat trip there and not doing it yourself! Course Husband LOVED it and laughed all the way there and back. Food wise we found all the restaurants in Coral Bay strip were good and reasonably priced. And so much more atmospheric when you are inside! We nearly gave the Italian a miss due to the location but went in as it was recommended and we had a wonderful dinner - scrummy food. LOVED Oniro's by the sea - great cocktails and really nice food/atmosphere and the view! Went there a lot. Can't think of anything else to recommend - did both waterparks - Limassol and Paphos - both great... We just had a really excellent holiday and having the villa to veg out in and pool to cool off in was the perfect way to do it. Many thanks to Marina and her team - she really knows how to do it right.
Just to say we had a great time at your villa and loved Cyprus.
The children loved the pool and it was great to have more privacy than the other villas in the street. The children all left positive feedback in the visitors book! They liked the pool volleyball net especially.
The local beach was family-friendly and cheap to hire loungers etc. Good snorkelling too.
We'd recommend the drive up to Lara Bay (the beach on the far side of the headland is wonderful and very quiet - lots of turtle nests there too). And lots of banana plantations to pass just along the coast from the villa - that surprised us.
Barry was really helpful and gave us lots of tips on places to go, things to do etc. We made it into Paphos a few times (good restaurants along the waterfront, such as The Pelican). We went to Limassol for the water park over there (following advice from previous guests - and the warnings were correct: it's nearly impossible to find - just head for the port and follow the signs from there. Once there, lovely and quiet so hardly any queues!). We made it to Latchi for a boat trip, which we?d recommend) and ventured into the Troodos. Omodhos was lovely. We loved the island and would recommend all these places.
lovely villa, best we have stayed in everything immaculate. Wonderful size pool , was definitely used ,had absolutely everything you needed.
Our stay in Paphos was a last minute booking and we were very lucky to find such a high quality villa at such short notice (this was due to a cancellation). We received great support from Marina during planning and booking and this was duplicated when we arrived by the management team - Elaine and Barry. The villa is tastefully and comfortably decorated and has everything you will need. The pool and garden are very well maintained and private which is a real bonus. We have no hesitation in recommending this villa. Thank you Marina
Just back from this wonderful villa. Believe the other reviews, It's amazing! Spotlessly clean, spacious, lovely garden and pool. The owners have put a lot of thought into making sure you have everything you need and are also extremely helpful with your booking. Thank you Marina for a fantastic holiday.

We have just come home from our second stay at the wonderful villa Marina and it was just as perfect as we remembered. As before, Marina made the whole process so easy and was amazingly helpful with all our enquiries. The villa really does have a 'home from home' feel with everything we needed to help make a holiday with two young as easy as possible. Our 4 year old loved being in the pool every day and the grass area, which is so beautiful and unique, was great with a 7 month old. The location is just ideal being over the road to Corallia Beach and within easy access to local restaurants and Coral Bay - you really couldn't wish for more. The property managers, Barry and Elaine, were fantastic and were really responsive and helpful with any questions. Thank you for all the little touches, we look forward to our next visit.
Having never booked a Villa before we weren't quite sure what to expect. We needn't have worried. Booking was a breeze. Marina made the process very simple and was extremely organised. The directions to the Villa were spot on, lots of useful information on where to find a supermarket and attractions were provided and being able to book a welcome pack was great, especially for us as our flight didn't get in until after dark.
We couldn't quite believe the Villa was for us when we arrived. Originally we went past the one with the lit up pool and well maintained garden, assuming that couldn't be ours. Then we realised it was. Inside was just as lovely, spotlessly clean and very well maintained and equipped. Having the property manager, Barry, pop round the following morning to check all was OK was a nice personal touch too. The inflatables for the pool, DVD's for us to watch and the drawer of books were also a nice touch.
The location was great for us, within stumbling distance of the sandy beach and also not far to Paphos and then north to Polis and some great restaurants along the marina at Latchi. If you like Scuba Diving we can also strongly recommend Marine Divers, 5 mins up the road from the villa. Our 10 year old son was able to have his first try - nothing was too much trouble.
All in, great Villa, great location and a fantastic holiday!
Villa Marina was everything we expected it to be having read all the great reviews. It certainly lives up to the high praise. The villa was pristine when we arrived and our children were really impressed and believe me impressing teenagers isn't easy! They were amazed that the villa was just for us. They loved their own space and were more excited about coming 'home' every day than going out exploring. We loved the privacy and peace of the garden and pool - particularly those 15 minutes every afternoon when the children went to the supermarket for goodies!
We managed to lock ourselves out while we were there but our panic was sorted out very quickly by Barry & Elaine - thank you both so much!
We found a great restaurant in the lovely small village of Kathikas called 'Yiannis' which had great authentic Cypriot food in a rustic setting. It's a great drive up there too, especially as the sun goes down. It's about 6C cooler up there - we came out of the restaurant to fog on our last visit.
I Would highly recommend the villa to anyone considering staying in the Coral bay area. All the rave reviews are totally justified, it's the nicest place we've ever stayed in anywhere.
Thank you Marina for making our holiday fabulous.
We had a wonderful time in your beautiful villa, thank you! It was very comfortable and relaxing, a real home from home, we wanted for nothing, it was just what we were hoping for. We booked the holiday with one thing in mind, to rest and relax; your villa and its location were absolutely perfect, we've come home feeling very relaxed and refreshed. We had lazy days by the pool (so peaceful, in a beautiful, secluded garden) and a picnic on Coral Beach just a few minutes walk away. Our journeys were faultless too, we were even pleasantly surprised how good EasyJet were! Even though our flight came in early when we arrived, our taxi driver was waiting for us so we were able to get on our way without delay (thanks, Marina, for making sure this happened!)
We would go back without a second thought!
We chose this villa as our base for a month of exploration of Cyprus and for the winter sunshine. In all aspects were were very pleased with our choice.
The villa is spotless and very spacious with lots of room to move around and do ones own thing. The garden is beautiful and to sit by the pool drinking a large glass of good Cyprus wine in a temperature of 20c in January was bliss. I recommend this villa on its location plus great garden and such helpful local staff. Our months stay went very fast and we had a great time in "our villa" as we felt it was. Thank you Marina and your team for making our winter break so enjoyable. We did not swim in the pool but did splash my feet in its clean clear cooling water. hi.
I must commend Barry the property on site manager for special praise as nothing was too much trouble. I had a "Pilot error" with the villa internet configuration for my laptop. No problem Barry took me in his car to local computer shop and sorted out my error, all part of his "Platinum Service".
Then during our stay the DVD developed a fault and it was replaced in 24 hours, wonderful customer service.
Marina the owner kept us well informed all through the booking procedure and supplied very detailed instructions from airport to property together with lots of local recommendations for tours and great local taverna`s .
A very nice Villa in the best part of town with the finest beach across the road. Would recommend getting a car to get out and up in the mountains if you have time. If not use the local bus from the main road only 3 euro return all day any local bus brilliant value.
Walking into the villa after hours of travelling was amazing, the open space layout of the villa, the cleanliness and the pool ... wow.
Marina had arranged for a welcome pack...including an extra special addition a bottle of something sparkly for that special birthday. The weather was super for us and we will always remember walking from the villa in the warm evenings to get a meal (only a 20 min gentle stroll to the centre of Coral Beach), our son swimming in the pool at night with the pool lights on, and playing scrabble outside with a cup of tea in the early evening once the daylight had gone - wonderful.
Villa Marina still has the wow factor!!! We have stayed now 5 times and the villa is still amazing. Villa Marina has every thing you could ever need and more for a fantastic relaxing holiday. There are 2 sun terraces that you can enjoy breakfast at one and a bbq etc on the other. The outside sofa and chairs are an added touch and really relaxing after a hard days sun bathing. The garden with the pool and sun loungers is very private and large. The inside is to a very high standard and very clean and comfortable, its a real home from home. The beach is about 5 mins walk from the villa and is very nice.
Marina the owner is a wonderful lady, you can ask for almost any thing and nothing is too much trouble for her. She has lovely property managers to make sure your stay is stress free.
We are returning AGAIN for xmas and cant wait as when we walk in it feels like home!. You will not find another villa like this one which will have you going WOW as soon as you enter. Thank you Marina for always making our holidays so wonderfull.
I booked this Villa for 2 weeks, 10 days for my inlaws and their family to stay for my Wedding in Coral Bay, amd then 4 days for my now husband and I to stay for our honeymoon. Well my family completely loved it, they were so happy. Central to everything, 3 minutes walk to the Coral Beach Hotel were I was married 12 September 2012. Bus stop a couple of mins walk to go to Paphos and the service is every 15 mins. Brilliant! You do not need a car if you want to stay in this villa it is central to everything. When we arrived for our honeymoon we were greeted with Champagne from Marina the owner and the bed was made up lovely with a love heart from the towels! The pool area is huge, immaculately clean and the walled garden surrounding the pool and villa is stunning, it was my favourite! Definetly the best Villa in the lovely Estate. We didnt want to leave and I am desperate to go back. Marina the owner has thought of everything and her communication through the whole process from beginning to end has been fantastic! We will definetly be back at Villa Marina am hoping its next year for my first year anniversary! I would recommend this villa to anyone, it suits everybody! Thank you Marina your villa is a little gem! Love Angela and Neil 12/09/2012. xxxxx
A simply beautiful villa with absolutely everything you could wish for! 3 bedrooms all with very comfortable beds, air conditioning throughout. The swimming pool was the perfect temperature for my 2 children who spent most of the day in there!The location is second to none... 5 minutes out of the development and accross the road and there was Corallia beach, just perfect. The beach was very busy but mainly due to the fact Coral Beach is currently being re-furbished due to major storms during the winter. I would recommend a hire car aswell as in the heat with 2 small children the 10 -15 minute walk to the main strip can be very difficult.
Something worth mentioning that Cyprus can no longer get the decent English Sky TV channels, i.e. BBC and ITV so don't expect to be able to watch much TV at all! Mind you, I dont' go on holiday to watch tv but occasionally its nice for the kids to be able to see a programme or too.
However, that bears no impact on this stunning villa, which I cannot recommend enough. I have been to Cyprus over 20 times, stayed all over the island, from hotels to villas and this is by far the best villa out the lot. The selection of outside eating areas / relaxing areas is exceptional.
I would thoroughly recommend this villa and the owner was lovely
We absolutely loved the villa....it was fantastic for our family (2 adults, a 4 year old and an 18 month old). The garden was incredible and the outdoor sitting areas perfect for sun and relaxation throughout the whole day. Villa felt extremely spacious and would be great in the summer months when hot. The pool was the perfect temperature for a refreshing dip, & the nearby Coralia beach was so much nicer than Coral Bay. Great for kids and not at all crowded when we were there. Would highly recommend this as a base for exploring the area (although so nice it's tempting not to leave the house!).
We visited in April with two teenagers and a toddler and we had an amazing time. The villa was wonderful and we found everything that we needed there. The recent addition of wifi was a particular hit with the teenagers and meant we were able to do online check in for our return flight really easily. The villa is SO CLOSE to the beach! It was a perfect beach for our toddler clean shallow etc but there was enough interest along the shore banana boat rides etc to also keep the teenagers happy. Great range of restaurants and lots of great things to see within easy distance. We hired a car because we were in Paphos for a wedding, but you definitely don't need to as the bus stop is only about a 2 minute walk away. We would definitely return to Cyprus and we we would definitely return to this villa.
Only two weeks back in cold and damp UK and our 10 days in March at the beautiful Villa Marina is just a distant happy memory. Before our visit, communications with the owner Marina were very easy and she was very helpful in trying to accommodate our needs. Also during our stay the property managers were great when we needed a bit of local assistance. The villa is just as described, in fact we could not fault it in any respect. It is modern, bright, beautifully furnished and so easy to keep clean and tidy. The outside areas are fantastic - two dining terraces (one for breakfast and one for dinner) a relaxing terrace and of course the very private garden and pool with six sunloungers. The location is excellent - nice and quiet and away from the busy 'strip' but near enough to all the facilities - shops restaurants and beaches. A car is not essential but is obviously useful to explore other parts of the island. We particularly liked walking in the nearby Akamas peninsula where the views are amazing and where you can still get away from it all as there is no development there yet. We were just two old fogies getting a bit more wizened in the sunshine but the villa would be great for holidaymakers of all ages. We would definitely recommend staying there and we hope to go back before too long.
Our stay at Villa Marina had been planned as an escape from the dreadful November weather we usually have in Moscow. The villa has surpassed all our expectations: it was very quiet, had a beautiful garden area where we had our meals, and a large swimming pool. Unlike some other guest accommodations in the area, Villa Marina is surrounded by a wall of green, which creates privacy and helps to relax. We all slept very well there, as beds were very comfortable, and nice warm blankets were provided by the owner. The villa is tastefully decorated and it has a great personal touch to it. I enjoy cooking, and I found everything I needed in the kitchen to prepare great meals. Everything was so well organised - you just think about it, and it's there)
The beach is very close to the villa, and we enjoyed long days just doing nothing, swimming, sunbathing and drinking great Cyprus coffee in the bar. At other days we would go to Paphos which is very close and visit its great archaeological sights and museums.
Villa Marina can cater for all tastes: it's a great refuge for those tired of big cities and wishing to get away from it all, and for families with children as it's so spacious and accommodating. Our stay was a memorable one, we felt very welcome and very much at home. Only it was better than home)
We are just back from our two week holiday at Villa Marina and wanted to thank you for providing such a great villa. It was so clean and well presented on arrival with lovely little touches like flowers on the bed and towels folded into swans. The villa had everything we needed to feel 'at home' during the holiday and could happily have stayed longer! As we were travelling with a young child and elderly grandparents it was a great relief how suitable the villa was in both these cases, especially with the addition of stair gates which were arranged on our behalf. The lovely big garden area surrounding the pool seems quite unique and we really enjoyed having this extra space. The villa is in such a perfect location - with a beautiful beach opposite and enough restaurants in walking distance if you do not wish to hire/use a car. We did however have a car and the information you provided before our stay was extremely helpful and there were some great recommendations for days out and restaurants that we enjoyed trying. The property managers, Lisa and Ray, were fantastic and were so quick in dealing with a few small issues such as helping us to get the BBQ alight & changing a bulb. We had a great time and would not hesitate to book again and recommend the villa to others - in fact we already have!
We have just returned from our 3rd time at Villa Marina and cant wait until we return in October.
The owners have again updated things within the villa to ensure its high standard of comfort. The position is excellent. 3 mins from the beach and local shop/restaurant and a further 15 mins from the main coral bay strip. Paphos only a 15 min drive away. Perfect sunset viewing areas only 5 mins drive away.
The villa it self has everything you could wish for and has all mod cons that are all updated regularly. Air con is fab and efficient, pool and garden area is absolutely amazing and very private which is one of the main reasons we keep returning. There is plenty of shade in different parts of the property during the different hours of the day so great for every need.
The owner ( marina) and her local agents (ray and lisa) have to big the biggest asset. They are always fantastic with helping you to make your holiday perfect - and they always succeed. They take care of the even the smallest details to ensure total satisfaction.
I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone and everyone. You will get total value for money and a fantastic experience, why else would we keep returning?
