Luxury, spacious 3 bed villa in superb location within Adonis Village at the 5 star Aphrodite Hills resort, Paphos. The villa is located on the edge of the western ravine, and it is only 5 minutes walk to the main resort facilities such as the restaurants, bars, golf, tennis and spa. Many other villages in the resort involve a long walk or a drive to get to the facilities (so make sure you check before you book!). The communal pool is only 30 seconds away, but completely hidden and child-safe as it is up a flight of steps.

Wifi is available within the property free of charge.

The villa ideal for couples, families or groups. The three bedrooms are spacious - two doubles (with king size beds) and one triple (three single beds). Two of the bedrooms can easily accommodate an extra bed or cot (all available at no extra charge), and two of the bedrooms have direct access to the terrace.

In low season, we're happy to rent out for short stays such as weekends, so please do enquire. Also, we're happy to offer special deals for longer stays of 3 - 4 weeks.

On the ground floor, the spacious living/dining room opens directly onto a large terrace with a sofa, chairs and coffee table, an outdoor dining table and gas barbecue. There is a second terrace on the lower floor, with steps down to a third terrace which leads onto a small garden planted with mature shrubs. There are fantastic views over the ravine and down to the Mediterranean sea.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need including fridge freezer, oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, coffee maker and all the utensils and crockery items you would normally have at home.

The resort has won many awards including the Best Mediterranean Family Resort at the World Travel Awards 2013.

The resort boasts a 5 star Hotel (operated as a Sensatori Resort from May to October), a Cabell B. Robinson designed Par 71 Championship Golf Course, 3 hole Golf Academy, a Tennis Academy with 9 floodlit courts, a world renowned Spa, Gyms, Restaurants, Shops and Bars.

The villa itself is furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The extensive terracing allows for sunbathing and alfresco dining. The interior is spacious and well lit.

All 3 Bedrooms are large and have extensive wardrobe and drawer space. Both bathrooms have powerful showers. There is air conditioning and heating in every room. The communal pool is within 50m but is unobtrusive as it is up a flight of steps, so can’t actually be seen from the villa.

For stays of a week or longer we provide a complementary welcome pack of essentials such as bread, tea, coffee, spread, wine etc. For shorter stays, a welcome pack can be arranged if desired at a small extra cost.

The Hotel: The Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel offers an array of dining opportunities in the finest choice of settings, from an informal outdoor poolside grill to an exclusive indoor fine dining experience. The hotel's many bars equally tempt guests from the comforts of lounging indoors to the elegance of sipping champagne out on the deck, looking out at the sunset over the Mediterranean. The hotel features a 151-square-metre heated indoor / outdoor pool - this can be enjoyed by villa guests outside of the May - October period (during which time you can of course use the communal Adonis Village pool which is right beside the villa). Contemporary and elegant, the Hotel is set in an area steeped in culture, mythology and tradition. It is a haven for devotees of luxury and comfort, promising to impress even the most discerning guests. The Resort also has a charming chapel for weddings and christenings.

The Retreat Spa and Wellness Centre: Voted the world’s third best resort spa by Homes Overseas Magazine, The Retreat was used by the British Olympic Team during their preparation for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. Set in fragrant gardens with refreshing water features, a heated swimming pool and hydro pools overlooking the Mediterranean. The Retreat takes its architectural inspiration from the great baths of Ancient Greece and Rome. At the heart of the Spa, stone colonnades run around a central courtyard, creating an authentic location for the theme. This suite of progressively warmer rooms and pools, tempered by cooling showers and a frigidarium, recreates the classic Roman bathing ritual to detoxify the system, stimulate the circulation and refresh the body. At the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy guests can enjoy playing & receive professional tuition and coaching. For the more active guests, there is a Cybex equipped gym with an extensive range of cardio and strength training equipment.

Cyprus’ climate makes it the perfect holiday villa rental location:

Long hot summers and short mild winters make Cyprus the perfect holiday destination, while the island's long history provides plenty of fascinating sites of interest for visitors to explore. An island of contrasts, the countryside of Cyprus extends from beautiful beaches to the splendour of the Troodos mountain range and the stunning Akamas National Park. The countryside is dotted with small villages where time seems to have stood still and old men sit outside coffee shops watching the world go by. You might even see a donkey tethered nearby. Head for the coast and you'll soon discover why Cyprus is one of the Europe's leading holiday destinations. Stunning beaches and excellent facilities make for a memorable vacation and few people can resist the temptation to dive into the cool blue of the Mediterranean. The Cypriot people are very outgoing and hospitable. Stop in any village and don't be surprised if you are invited to someone's house for coffee.

About Stephen McBurney

Stephen & Deirdre McBurney, originally from Ireland, now living and working in the UK. We have 4 kids all 11 and under.

Stephen McBurney purchased this villa in 2013

Why Stephen McBurney chose Aphrodite Hills

After holidaying on the resort in another nearby villa, we found it worked perfectly for us as a family and clearly had everything we needed to keep children and adults happy for many years to come. We viewed this property and immediately knew it was the one for us, due to its spaciousness, great location and views.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is spacious and brilliantly located, just a few steps from a great communal pool (that rarely gets busy even in peak season). It's only a short walk (5 mins) to all the resort facilities, which was important for us as we didn't want to have to drive down to the pubs or restaurants.

We've also explored lots of the local restaurants and can provide some recommendations if desired.

We've made sure our villa is fully equipped to make your stay easier, so you'll find all the utensils, cleaning materials etc that you could possibly need. We've also replaced all the windows and doors during 2014 with top quality German thermo-insulated double glazing - this means the villa is much easier to cool in summer or heat in winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the second time we have stayed in the property and it really is a home from home. Chris's use and replace policy works so well. None of that usual scrambling aorund for things when you first arrive as it's all there. Just top up as you use things. A useful welcome pack as well. All good communication pre holiday and a local agent is on hand if needed. There's also loads of information about the area to be found in an extensive folder, which if you're a first timer is really helpful and had clearly been updated since our previous visit. We've no hesitation at all in recommending this property and more likely than not will return.

Wonderful Villa In Prime Aphrodite Hills Location

  • 5 of 5

As regular visitors to Aphrodite Hills we have discovered accommodation usually falls into two camps. It is either bought as an investment and rented out with minimal decor and extras. This property falls into the second camp, it is owned by a thoughtful family who not only care a great deal for their property but also for their guests. Every need is catered for and every question anticipated and addressed. I could not fault the attention to detail and this added greatly to our holiday.

As a mum, for me it was the small things that make this villa great. Plenty of towels, cleaning materials and basic essentials provided on a use and replace basis, dishwasher, washing machine, drying rack provided with pegs, wifi working without a hitch and for me best of all three single beds in one room for the children!

For the rest of the family it was the spacious airy luxurious interior, the outside eating and relaxing areas, proximity to the centre, the fabulous views...

This property has it all!

A beautiful luxury villa in a prime position!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this villa. It is conveniently located - a short drive from Paphos airport and equidistant between Paphos & Limassol. Within the Aphrodite Hills resort, the villa is conveniently situated for the swimming pool (just a short walk up some steps) - so we took full advantage of this. It is also 5 mins walk or so from the resort's shops, restaurants and supermarket.

The villa itself is stylishly decorated, clean and well maintained. For anyone wanting to self-cater the kitchen is very well equipped. There are thoughtful touches from the owners - including provision of a welcome pack of basic provisions, information about places to eat (within Aphrodite Hills resort & in the surrounding villages & towns) and the provision of guide books and local maps.

Customer service was excellent both from the owner prior to our departure & on-site from the very helpful & friendly Karl.

I would definitely recommend this villa to friends and relatives. We used the villa as a base for a lazy and relaxed holiday - so spent most of our time at the pool and travelling into Kuklia most days for lunch in some great local tavernas. The resort of Aphrodite Hills is ideal for families, self-contained and if you wanted a really lazy holiday, you could just stay in the resort. However we enjoyed having a car and being able to head out and about a little - we particularly liked Kuklia, we also visited Pissouri Bay & Paphos.

Fantastic clean spacious accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Even before we had left for Cyprus the villa's owner ( Stephen ) was so helpful emailing information about the villa and the local amenities. The map from the airport to the resort was very straightforward a bonus as we were travelling at night. The villa was even better than in the pictures. Very clean, bright and spacious with everything you needed including a welcome pack which was brilliant as we needed a cuppa and snack before we retired for the night.

The whole set up was so relaxing it felt like a home from home but with all the added bonuses. The brilliant weather, waking up to beautiful sunshine and a stunning view every morning.

The pool is literally half a minutes walk from the front door and it was never busy, so very peaceful and relaxing.

The resort has everything on it but it is so well laid out you don't feel like you are on a resort. I could imagine myself living there, we truly had a great time. We didn't get to see all Cyprus has to offer, we hardly touched the surface even in two weeks so we are already planning when we can get back.

The locals are very friendly the majority speak English. Oh and in the villa the sockets are the same as the uk.

The bus system is very straight forward and good value so if you don't want to hire a car they will take you to most places. We took one to the main market in Paphos which had so many lovely gifts again very good value for money.

While I went to the market my husband and son went on a fishing trip which they thoroughly enjoyed especially as they caught a fish which was cooked and eaten on board.

If you are looking for a great family holiday with everything on hand or just want a base from which to travel and explore this is definitely the place.

Can't wait to get back.

Beautiful villa, wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious villa with all utilities you could ask for. Villas very clean and tidy. Quiet location but with easy access to all amenities. Views from villa stunning. Short journey from airport. Close to local shop and bars and restaurants.

Having wireless internet availability was great for the children and for us adult to keep in touch with work!

Swimming pool area was great to use every day.

As our girls are serious swimmers Stephen and Deidre helped us with information on the local 50m swimming pool which was much appreciated, what a luxury.

All information provided by Deidre and Stephen was invaluable and helped us during our stay.

We also visited the local beaches and had great fun. Also went to Kouklia twice for fantastic food and Cypriot dancing in the Gabriel Restaurant. We also visited the water park in Limassol which was a whole days outing and lots of fun and good catering facilities. Visited Aphrodite's birthplace, Paphos town and castle. Big supermarkets to cater for all your needs 10 minutes away, but the local store in village square had all the essentials.

We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone and we will certainly want to come back!!!!!

Wonderful Villa, wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

I took a trip to Cyprus in April of this year with my partner and stayed in Stephens lovely Aphrodite Hills villa.

I found the villa to be everything I needed and more! It is ideally situated only a short drive from Pathos airport and boasts beautiful surroundings.

couldn't have asked for more form the villa itself. It was spacious, luxurious and had all the utlities we needed. The availaility of Wireless internet, apple TV and sky sports on the box is always a great plus!!

The pool and pool area were also top notch.....each day started with a swim.

One of the many highlights of my stay at the villa was breakfast - sitting on the balcony enjoying the peaceful and scenic surroundings whilst soaking up the sun.

Within the Resort all our needs were catered for, a 5 min walk to the Supermarket had everything we needed. In the evenings there are various restaurants to choose from; we spent many an evening in the Anoi,

the atmospohere was relaxed, staff were friendly and food was excellent. We also took advantage of the cocktail menu at the Intercontinental hotel, which again is only a short 5 min walk from the villa. The Intercontinental had

a live house band playing which added to an already good atmosphere.

During our stay we visited many of the local sights - Tombs of the Kings, Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, Aphrodite Rock, Paphos Harbour and Castle,

great locations for day trips, all a short drive from the Aphrodite Hills resort. Lunch on Paphos Harbouor is another must!

All in all, I cannot speak more highly of our stay at the Stephen's villa. I have no doubt I will be returning there at some point in the future!!

The villa is just great!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Cyprus as our February half-term break to catch some winter sunshine.

The setting of the villa in the Aphrodite Hills resort is picture-perfect. There are two balconies with wonderful views of the countryside; the sea can be seen sparkling in the distance. An easy 20 minutes drive from Paphos airport.

The villa is very well appointed and is spacious, airy and bright. Wonderful picture windows from the sitting room overlook the ravine. Spotlessly clean throughout and with ample space for our family of 4 (children aged 8 and 10).

Breakfast on the large, sunny balcony was a great way to start each day.

Stephen and Deidre provided us with all the information we needed prior to departure. This included directions from the airport, details about the villa including appliance instructions, and details of favourite local restaurants.

We took full advantage of the restaurant recommendations and sampled some wonderful local cooking. Gabriels's in Kouklia, a 5 minute drive away, was our favourite. The Mezze was delicious and a great introduction to Cypriot cuisine. The restaurant owners were very friendly and welcoming.

Local family activities that we enjoyed included a horse-ride trail with spectacular views, family golfing on the resort's 3-hole golf course, a visit to Aphrodite's Sanctuary, a walk to the local beach and dip in the coral blue sea plus a visit to the Tomb of the Kings, where the children loved being able to explore the tombs. The small museum at Aphrodite's Sanctuary was also very child-friendly. Our son enjoyed re-telling the story of Odysseus and Cyclops's cave after spotting the picture on a sarcophagus exhibit. A good excuse to brush up on Greek mythology before your visit.

We used the Intercontinental hotel's swimming pool one day because the open air pool, a stone's throw from the villa, was unfortunately closed for maintenance. It looked like a super open air pool for children when open. The local resort village, a 3 minute walk from the villa, had a Costa cafe and small supermarket which was very useful for stocking up on essentials.

All in all a super half-term break. We would be very happy to return to Stephen and Deidre's villa another time.

As I tap this out after returning home yesterday, the clouds are grey and rain is lashing against the windows. Relaxing over breakfast on a sunny balcony with wonderful views seems a world away...

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments. We're thrilled you enjoyed our villa and the resort facilities as much as we do with our own family. We hope you will return again sometime in the future. It's pretty much sunny all year around in Cyprus!
