Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Secret Valley - Marona

Three Bedrooms, two Bathrooms, one cloakroom, Huge space. Sleeps six.

This is a large , private villa, with contemporary furnishings in neutral tones and with a stylish and beautiful atmosphere throughout.

Standing pretty much on its own and centred around a magnificent large staircase and grand Salon style Sitting-room, this unique three bedroomed property affords the very best view in Nata from its prominent hillside position. Unlike other village rental properties it has privacy front or back and complete seclusion with an epic 180 degree panorama with the Swimming pool in full sun all day.

Access is only through the front courtyard making this property suitable for au-natural sunbathing as many guests testify in their comments, A cool courtyard links the property's ground floor areas and with the Master-suite upstairs , this house happily offers discrete accommodation meaning you need not feel you are on top of each other during the holiday.

Marona is sadly unsuitable for families with children under twelve years old due to its cliff -like location.

This property is first and foremost my home and it's style and suitability is for the person who really wants to escape to a private house away from the mass tourism that has overwhelmed Cyprus.

This is suited to the guest who does not crave the need for technology, instead those who want a haven and a place of tranquillity for their own when they stay. You can still get internet and mobile signals although we have no cable TV thankfully. This is a place for reading , eating , playing music , and relaxing away from the 21 century for a few days....

Magnificant Marona

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Marona is the perfect place to unwind and relax in.
It is a very beautiful house and we felt very much at home there. The description of the villa hardly does it justice, we were frankly astonished by the high standard of every aspect of the house. The exquisite decor, well equipped kitchen and extremely comfortable bed and sofas all contributed to a delightful respite from our work and the information pack we received before our stay was crammed with useful information.We also loved the fantastic artwork that adorns the house.
We would recommend this villa to anyone who wants a luxurious base from which to explore Cyprus.

Perfect! Romantic! Au-Natural!

  • 5 out of 5
Of all the villas we have stayed in this has to be the best, without a doubt, so far! We wanted privacy and we got exactly that.

Our 'normal' day to day lives are extremley hectic, long hours and we have little time with each other, therefore we wanted seclusion and privacy to bathe in each others company.

We wanted to be 'au-natural', which is not something we would ever do in a public place, and that is exactly what we got. We wanted the freedom to walk around 'au natural' in and outdoors within the seclusion of a villa and that is exactly what we experienced; yes there are some properties out the back of the villa in the valley but they would need an extremley large ladder, binoculars or extreme length camera lenses to be able to 'see' you walk round the pool let alone sat out the back of the property by the pool or on the patio!

The kitchen has everything and more you will need to enjoy meals at the villa and on a couple of occasions that's what we did; romantic meals out on the patio as the sun went down, perfect. On those occasions I couldn't be bothered to cook we went out, and there are so many great places to eat and with Paphos only 15 minutes drive away I cannot think of a better location for a secluded villa.

Now for a few tips:

+Rent a car

+Take an iPod/MP3 player and a jack lead (the type that fit into the headphone socket of the iPod/MP3 player - male at both ends) to connect to the stereo system that is there; it was great to chill during the day with music in the background and great on our Romantic evenings on the patio/by the pool

Do take water with you if you're planning to visit any of the ruins on the island, in fact if you plan to do any sightseeing (unless very close to cafes) - it gets extremley hot and if you've not got water/drink you will regret it.

Don't worry about being 'seen' whilst at the villa, trust us when we say you have nothing to worry about

Jonathon is a great fella who will answer any questions you have; his freinds, Yvonne and Nigel, who look after the property are fantastic and you know when they will be round to clean the pool/change the beds etc so no worries about being disturbed by suprise - if you are worried about it, lock the main front door and leave the key in, they will ring the door bell and wait for you

We hope you have as fantastic time as we did. If we ever go back to Cyprus (we like to visit new places all the time) this is definatley the villa we will be staying at

Quality Village House.Peace and quiet.

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I have just returned from two weeks in "Marona". If you want quality accomodation in a very quiet village and experience the old cypriot way of life this is the place. If you want discos, bars,noise and lots of holidaymakers it is not the choice for you. We have been going to Cyprus for over 20 years and have stayed in many of the luxury hotels.We were about to give up on Cyprus as a holiday destination until we discovered house rentals. From the moment we booked this house we were realised that the owner regards it more than a rental property.The local people Jonathon uses for cleaning etc, (who are English) are very good and available should you require any information or assistance. Although remote it is not too far from Paphos airport, and only a short drive to some local tavernas. For shopping there are large supermarkets in Paphos and one in Pissouri which can be reached in 25 minutes. Every morning after breakfast we drove to Aphrodite Hills to collect our "Times" and have a coffee at Costa. My wife sketches and paints and found some wonderful views and old village ruins. The villa is extremely well equipped. We ate out but also made several meals and the kitchen has all you need. There is no TV but a great selection of DVD's. After our evening meal we enjoyed our wine and a film before retireing to the silence of the village.Beware the village cockrel will ensure you do not sleep in!.There are a couple of places in the village you can have a drink and one does food.The locals were fiendly and did not seem to care as long as you accepted their village and their way of life was not going to change for you and that suited us fine. You can see the villa on the web site and what you see is very accurate, although Jonathan has updated some of the furniture. We did not use the pool but it is cleaned twice a week, and the balcony and the views are good for eating outside,sunbathing,reading or just nodding off. We would endevour to use the villa again when we visit that area. I am sure that because of what it is, and where it is, it will eventually have a regular set a clients who will look forward to visting and like Jonathan regard the place as more than a rental. I am sure we will return.

Outstanding villa in peaceful location.

  • 5 out of 5
We have rented numerous villas and Villa Marona is up there with the best!
We stayed there mid October and the temperature was still in the 30’s, with pleasant cooler evenings. Nata village is small and peaceful but Papos Town is only a 20 minute drive away. I would say a car is a necessity and that the villa and location probably not suitable for families with small children. The villa is definitely not overlooked and the view from the terrace is fabulous.
The villa was well equipped and superbly comfortable. We had no reason to contact the local agent as everything worked fine and the instructions left were all self explanatory.
Jonathon made the whole holiday from booking onwards ‘hassle free’!
We visited several of the restaurants recommended by Jonathon and were not disappointed. Our favourite was a meal at the simple Melanda beach restaurant near Pissouri. Simply the best fish in a super location – somewhat remote but well worth finding.
This may well be the first villa that we return to!

DO NOT HESITATE - BOOK THIS VILLA!
This truly is a beautiful villa. Extremely well equipped and comfortable. The pool is totally secluded and the views of mountains stunning.

You do feel you are staying in someone's home rather than a standard rental villa. Artwork, furniture and artefacts sourced and created by the owner make theis villa unique.

It was extremely hot when we visited and air con in bedrooms was effecient.

You need a car as nearest supermarket in next village - although small local shop for basics. Great base to explore beautiful island.

Marona Villa simply the best

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from an amazing week at Marona villa - it is just as descibed on the web. The views, setting and quality of accomodation is second to none. We have stayed in many different villas over the years in many different countries and we have yet to stay somewhere so beautiful and so well equipped - the kitchen has absulutely everything you could ever want to prepare a banquet! Clearly at Marona you have the feeling you are staying in someone else's house, rather than a basic rental property.

Jonathan was very supportive and responsive to all our requests before travel and Nigel was very helpful when we arrived. Like others have confirmed - the pool is completely private and there is no concern of it being overlooked.

If you want relaxed, secluded and high quality - this is the place for you!
