About Bev Willstrop

My name is Bev and I live with my partner in Reigate, Surrey. I have worked for the Court Service for over 30 years after graduating in law from Sheffield University. I have a keen interest in interior design and have taken a number of part time courses to increase my knowledge. I have assisted a number of friends in Cyprus and the UK with the design and furnishing of their properties and would like to pursue this further after I retire when I hope to spend at least half the year at the villa. I am always so pleased when guests tell me how much they have enjoyed their holiday at the villa - many return year after year.

Bev Willstrop purchased this villa in 2004

Why Bev Willstrop chose Kouklia

I fell in love with Cyprus and with Secret Valley where my villa is located in 2003. The Cypriots are warm and friendly and the country has so much to offer both socially and culturally. To me Secret Valley is a magical place with dramatic sea and mountain views from all sides. Its extremely peaceful and secluded but at the same time close at hand to all the facilities you might want when on holiday if you can drag yourself away from the pool. Aphrodite Hills with its bars, restaurants, shops, health spa and sports facilities is literally next door and less than a 5 mins drive.

What makes this villa unique

I spend all my holidays at the villa and it is very much my second home. I have furnished and equipped it to a very high standard and my interest in interior design has been extremely useful in getting the right feel of spaciousness and light. The villa is much larger than an average 3 bed and is on a large plot which, with the now mature hedges, gives perfect privacy and seclusion. I am always looking at ways to improve the facilities when I can and in recent years have installed pool heating for guests staying in the cooler months and a wood burner. I have a new TV system with all major UK channels and automatic recording of all programmes during the past 5 days. Unusually for Cyprus I have high speed wi-fi - so important in today's world and there is a high quality i-pod dock.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From start to finish all aspects of our booking were accurate and attentive. The villa is 100% genuine and as described in the advert. Very spacious with a high quality finish and top of the range appliances. The kids loved having wi-fi to keep them in gadget world! The heated pool is the icing on the cake and kept a perfect consistent temperature. You could not use a non-heated pool at this time of year, tried it twice before in other villas and failed, so well worth the extra few pounds. The kids were in the water morning, noon & night leaving the adults reading and chilling for hours on end - Result!! Will definitely return

Beautiful Property in a Fabulous Area

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and clean as well as a relatively short distance away from the airport set on a hillside near to a very impressive valley. The property itself had ample space for us and 4 other friends and was a very short distance away from paphos (and the nearby town of kouklia which had some very nice places to eat and held a wonderful Cypriot night with food and traditional dancing).

The owner was very knowledgeable and provided us with recommendations for local restaurants which really helped make our stay. We would not hesitate to go back again next year!

Highly recommended villa

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Villa Pelaga for the last two years and have already booked my 2015 stay.

The villa itself it stunning and really spacious, with loads of indoor and outdoor living space. We were six adults and could comfortably fit around either of the dining tables or on the sofas in the living room to watch a movie. We cooked every night at the huge BBQ station but there is also a large and well appointed kicthen which was really handy. The bedrooms are comfortable and well appointed (air conditioning throughout which is a must in high summer), and the huge range of English TV channels was excellent (and would be particularly good for kids). We had no trouble accessing the wifi and the signal was always good.

Location-wise the villa was great for us, being about 10 mins drive away from the gorgeous Pissouri and around 15-20 minutes from both central and Kato Paphos. If you were feeling very brave (and had lathered on plenty of suncream) it is possible to walk to the beach from the villa (just follow the sea view!!) - but far more pleasant to take the 2min drive.

The owner was super attentive and helpful, providing absolutely loads of information on the villa (and how to work all the appliances etc) and the surrounding area, including restaurant reccomendations and details of local events, but she was also contactable via text or email to answer any questions we had.

If you are travelling outside of July-September time I would definitely reccommend the pool heating - it meant we could swim long after sunset and early in the morning which we really aappreciated.

In summary, I can't recommend this villa enough and look forward to returning.

Lovely, clean, spacious family villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa was lovely, clean and spacious. Everything was to the specification and the outside pool was an absolute God send! Directions from the airport were clear an all instructions for the villa were easy to follow. We had some lovely meals out and everything was easily accessed by car. The fig tree in the front garden has the most delicious figs ever!! We would definitely return, thank you.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that the guests had such an enjoyable stay at the villa and hope they will return in the future. I remember when the fig tree was first planted some years ago - it was tiny and we didn't get any figs at all for the first couple of years - it really is a feature now!!

Christmas and New year 2009/10

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I stayed at this villa for 3 weeks over the christmas period. It made a pleasant change going to a villa where everything worked as it was supposed to. It was very clean and tidy and the welcome pack on arrival was quite extensive.

The pool was regularly serviced durring the stay as was the bed linnen.

Over all a high quality villa that is well worth the money and I will certainly recomend this villa to anyone thinking of holidaying in the pafos area.

Had an absolutly fantasic holiday and I hope to visit again soon.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Just got back from 2wks in sunny Cyprus and what a holiday. The villa really made the holiday for us. It's in a perfect location, close enough to all the sights, yet just far enough away to ensure a peaceful and relaxing time. Having a pool to ourselves - just brilliant, especially after a day of sight-seeing. The villa was beautiful - clean, tidy and there was everything you could possibly need or want.

We had a fantastic time and wouldn't hesitate to reccommend this villa to everyone.
