Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Limassol region - Neptune's Retreat (+3 villas)

Easy Walking Distance To Beach (800m), 14 Local Restaurants, Free Wifi/air con

“What a find!! We've thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Excellent location, fully serviced villa – a real home from home. Normally there's a list of things missing that would have made the holiday better, but not on this occasion. We're already looking forward to returning next year!!” the Barrys, Bushells and Kings

Enjoy the quiet comforts of a deluxe, secluded 4 bedroom private villa FOR UP TO 10 people, with unobstructed sea views over the glorious Pissouri Bay from every room, with colourful Mediterranean gardens set in a small seaside village amongst rolling hillsides, lush vineyards and beach atmosphere, within walking distance of 14 restaurants and a wide range of other holiday and sporting amenities.

See http://bit.ly/neptunesretreat to take a video tour of the villa and get a feel for the wonderful views and designer furniture and fittings for you to enjoy on your next holiday!

FOR LARGER GROUPS up to 24 people, we have partnered with owners of other 2 and 3 bedroom villas which can be rented together to accommodate you (at additional cost for each villa). These villas also have lovely sea views, providing comfort and privacy for up to 24 people, with 4 private pools, gardens, living areas and kitchens, so you can holiday as a group while still enjoying elements of privacy when you so wish.

NOTE ABOUT GROUP RATES: Please note that the rates quoted on this site are for Neptune's Retreat, our 4 bedroom villa ONLY; if you are a larger group that requires more that 4 bedrooms, please contact us for group rates including other villas within 100-150 metres of our villa.

Neptune's Retreat is a privately owned, spacious villa with large open plan lounge/dining area opening onto fabulous private paved terrace and garden with 13x4 metre pool, situated on the south-west coast of Cyprus, in the rural seaside village of Pissouri Bay, midway between Paphos and Limassol. Set at the southern end of a small valley filled with vineyards, the villa has spectacular sea views from the living areas and also from every bedroom, (so you will wake up to the sound of the sea and relax in bed, savouring the views in luxury). The master bedroom has a private terrace with fantastic views over the bay and sea, with mature gardens providing privacy around the beautiful pool.

Fitted with all the mod cons, including air conditioning, broadband internet connection and stylish furnishings, this non-smoking villa makes the most of the superb landscaping, with outdoor living in beautiful managed gardens a particular feature. Neptune's Retreat is ideal both for lazing around and enjoying that book you have been meaning to read for months, or for more active passions such as golf (with 2 championship courses a mere 10 minute scenic drive away), water sports at the nearby blue flag beach, or exploring the many beauties of this wonderful island and indulging in culinary delights at the many local tavernas and restaurants.

And if you are around between June and September, you may be lucky enough to watch loggerhead turtles make nests and lay their eggs on our local beach, and then see the turtle hatchings emerge about 7 weeks later - amazing experience! Have a look at the pictures to see the latest seasonal turtle activities.

Past guest comments:

“The villa is lovely. The views, especially from the bedrooms, is beautiful – i loved waking up in the morning and lying in bed, seeing and hearing the sea. I would love to come back.”

“We had a lovely time. The villa was wonderful and the pool a real hit with the boys and granddads. They spent most of the days submerged. The weather got really hot during the middle of our stay but we had the lovely pissouri breeze. We enjoyed captains bay and mum and i went to the serenity spa for a lovely massage – the girls were great. Thanks for everything. Best wishes.”

Mcnallys and cousins

“Fantastic villa, lovely pool enjoyed by everyone. People very friendly and chris the taxi man a real star. We tried all the restaurants recommended and all were very good. Captains bay great for long lunches. Indian food was excellent, best tasted. Cyprus night in the village was the best night, water mania most fun.”

Nolan family

“Wonderful villa for a family celebration (ruby wedding anniversary). Good for young children (6 months and 18 months). Fantastic long pool! We have all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend Columbia hotel and hill view restaurant for a special occasion (worth paying the extra money). Would definitely visit this villa again. Thank you.”

Wheatstone family (UK and new York)

“Lovely villa, superb location. We could find no fault whatsoever. My 3 year old daughter loved the pool and she can practically swim now. All the rooms and the outside area are excellent. My only complaint is why didn't we book a second week - one week is not enough! Weather has been hot every day. Thank you for a very enjoyable week.”

About Ivor

Ivor grew up in sunny South Africa but always yearned to travel, which he did extensively after graduating from university. He met Deborah after moving permanently to the UK, and they married in London 22 years ago. The family was completed when Stefan arrived 14 years ago, to join our 5 cats as the latest addition to the family.

We all love travelling (except the cats, of course, who guard our home in London when we are away) and Cyprus ticks all our boxes - almost permanent sunshine, gorgeous blue sea, wonderful views and natural beauty combined with extensive culinary delights, antiquities and there is always something new to explore within easy driving distance of our villa.

Ivor purchased this villa in 2006

Why Ivor chose Limassol region

Our family fell in love with Pissouri Bay when we came across it during an exploratory visit to Cyprus, and we were lucky enough to build a glorious 4 bedroom private villa to our own specifications, which allowed us to ensure every room in the villa overlooks the sea, while also having the longest private pool in the bay (13 x 4m) set in an extensive paved patio and garden. We spent many months carefully selecting all the fittings and furniture, in order to make our wonderful villa truly a 'home from home'.

And as we live permanently outside Cyprus, we want to give other families and groups like you the opportunity to experience the joy of our treasured holiday home for yourselves. So after browsing this site and reading our guest reviews, we hope you will reserve your holiday and enjoy Neptune's Retreat as much as we and our previous guests have done.

What makes this villa unique

When you first arrive at Neptune's Retreat, you will be greeted by our glorious Australian flame tree with its vivid red flowers, and a mass of multi-coloured bougainvillea, before you open the large front door and gasp at the glorious view of Pissouri Bay as you enter the large open-plan living area, covered by our specially cool selected Italian ceramic flooring.

Once you have selected who will sleep in which bedroom, each individually decorated, you can then crash out after your journey or take a walk into the village below for a drink and a relaxing meal.

Lie in bed in the morning, throw open the floor to ceiling picture windows from each of the four bedrooms (yes, every room has panoramic sea and bay views) and watch and listen to the sea lapping on the blue flag beach below you!

When you finally crawl/jump out of bed, amble around the extensive patio surrounding our 13 x 4 metre pool, indulge in an early morning swim or just laze on one of the loungers while enjoying breakfast al fresco or at our large dining table, while continuing to enjoy the views framed by beautiful mature bougainvillea, palm trees and other Mediterranean plants and flowers.

After breakfast, take the short walk down to the beach and settle in for a long day of lazing, swimming, sailing, reading, beach combing or snoozing on one of the many umbrella-shaded loungers that dot the peaceful, uncrowned beach (Pissouri beach is never crowded, even on the busiest holiday days. If you feel peckish, you have the choice of several beach-front restaurants to fall into.

And then for sundowners, you can enjoy a quiet drink and meal back at the villa (perhaps a BBQ if you are feeling like cooking yourselves) or take a walk or short drive to one of about 30 restaurants at the beach or in the surrounding villages. And we would suggest at least one night out in Limassol and Paphos to walk along the extensive sea-front promenades, and deciding which cuisine to choose for your meal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a one week stay at Neptune's Retreat. We travelled with another family and the villa easily accommodated four adults and five children. It is situated in a very private location - even though there are close neighbours the pool and patio areas are pretty secluded. The villa is elevated which gave us great views over Pissouri bay .

The kitchen is equipped with all the bits you need if you decide to cook in ( though we only had breakfast, light lunches and a couple of great B-B-Q's there. The rest of the time we ate out at the lovely eateries that are only a short walk away. The beach is close too though our children were happiest around the villa's lovely pool.

The villa was lovely and clean and although it was showing signs of being the end of the season we thought it was great. OK there were a couple of small niggly bits that were not quite right but nothing that spoiled a great stay. We were left on our own to enjoy ourselves and if you needed anything there was a tel number of a local lady that would sort out any problems.

Ivor, the owner, even kindly let us stay in the villa on our last day as we had an evening flight back to the UK. We would not hesitate in returning to Neptune's Retreat.

Superbly clean and well fitted villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a terrific location with easy access to bars and restaurants just 5 mins to the beach. The fittings are of high quality leading to a very comfortable relaxing stay. Particular mention should be given to the new pool which is much larger than other pools in villas close by. A perfect location with privacy by the pool but with easy access to beach facilities. Thoroughly recommended.

Luxurious Villa; superb accommodation and pool

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from holiday in Cyprus and stayed in the villa Neptunes Retreat.Our family of 5 adults and 3 children had a wonderful time in this beautiful villa. It is situated in a lovely area with views over the bay and the sea.The villa is so well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is also spotlessly clean and is obviously well maintained. The welcome pack was all we required especially the bottles of wine! Very thoughtful and much appreciated! The pool is an added luxury and the poolside furniture was well used on the terrace. The village is within walking distance and we took full advantage of the many local restaurants. We cannot praise this villa highly enough and fully intend to return next year. A totally first class holiday !

There are some misleading information on the hous

  • 3 of 5

1. The house is 10 minutes by car from the beach or 20 walking, not 300m as stated. Great photoshoped photographs as house is far from the closer beach.

2. The water pump, it continued to make noise sometime during the whole stay (even when the water was not in use), so we had to switch it off every night.

3. The swimming pool was always very dirty with a lot of mud/sand on the bottom despite the weekly cleaning. The filtration system does not work properly hence we never used it as it felt unsafe to do so. Also the water level is quite low.

4. The the external shower area is full of debris and rubbish.

5. All doors in the house make squeaking noise, which is particularly disturbing in the night.

Owner's Response: Dear Julia and Carlo I am sorry that you had some problems at the villa, but I want to confirm that we made every effort to respond as quickly as possible as soon as you raised the issues with me. To respond to your specific points: 1. I am not sure what route you took to the beach - I have been driving from the villa to the beach for the past 7 years and it has never taken me longer than 3 minutes to drive there, so I don't know how you could take 10 minutes to do that journey - that is normally how long it takes to walk at a slow pace with my young son as well as my elderly mother-in-law. I have had many guests staying at the villa and not a single one has ever complained about the distance from the house to the beach - in fact most of them love the fact that it is such an easy walk to and from the beach. I also reject your assertion that the photos on the site have been photoshopped - they are genuine pictures taken by me with an ordinary camera. 2. There was a problem with the water pump which we had attended to early the following morning after you raised the problem on your first evening. I was assured by my plumber and my manager that the problem was fixed at that point. I visited the villa the week after you left and particularly checked out the pump noise and for 4 nights in a row I did not hear a single sound from the pump that would in any way have disturbed my sleep. I can only say that you must have hyper-sensitive hearing, as I couldn't hear any noise and neither of the two parties who have stayed at the villa since you left have complained about any noise at all. 3. The swimming pool was cleaned twice a week during your stay, not once as you indicate. The pool cleaner has confirmed that he used normal chemicals and that the pool was perfectly clean and safe, given that it is an outdoor pool in a dusty Mediterranean environment. Again the guests who have followed you have not complained in any way about the state of the pool. In fact, both parties have emailed me to state how wonderful the pool is and that it is a great feature of the villa. As a result of your complaint, I have asked the pool cleaner to ensure that the water level is kept topped up and that is what is now happening. 4. The outside shower has been tidied up and the rubbish removed. 5. I checked all the doors myself during my visit and couldn't find any squeaks, but oiled all the hinges to make sure and there are no squeaks any more.

Cyprus is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations. With friendly, English-speaking locals, excellent food, wine and over 5,000 years of history it's hardly surprising! Add to that the near-zero crime rate, drive on the left, drink most tap-water and plug in your UK electrical appliances with no adaptors, you'll understand why Cyprus promises to give you one of the most trouble-free, friendly, enjoyable and memorable holidays you will ever have! Explore Aphrodite's Rock, the Tomb of the Kings, beaches, water-sports, water-parks and enjoy the lively atmosphere of Paphos, 20 minutes drive away, with its old harbour, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Alternatively, savour the excellent food and wines in the quieter taverns in the villages of nearby Pissouri and Kouklia with their gentle and friendly character. The villa is 10 minutes drive from Secret Valley Golf club Aphrodite Hills Golf, Hotel Leisure complex, 20 minutes to the new Elea club near Paphos and 30 minutes from Tsada Golf.

Go hiking or biking (or try some skiing in winter) or relax in one of the many interesting tavernas in the glorious Troodos mountains - which is a mere 30 minute drive north from the villa through tiny winding roads. Visit Cyprus's Mount Olympus which peaks at nearly 2,000m and drink in the clear air and gorgeous mountain scenery. Then descend through Platers, stop to take in a maze and some ouzo or explore a few of the many lavishly frescoed Byzantine churches that dot the area. If you are fit and adventurous, visit the Caledonia Falls at the end of the Caledonia Trail.

Back at the coast, take a trip to the ruins of ancient Curium (or Kourion), with its impressive cliff-top theatre where you may be lucky enough to attend a play or concert in the summer season. Visit the Crusader castle at Kolossi, and take in the spectacular sunsets at the Petra tou Romiou (the legendary birthplace of Greek Goddess Aphrodite). If you visiting in spring/summer and are really lucky, you may see loggerhead turtles haul themselves onto the beach to lay their eggs, or even better in July/August, see the hatchings fight their way back from their nests into the sea. In the past two years, there have been an average of 8-10 active nests on Pissouri beach, with over 600 hatchings successfully making their way into the sea.
