About the property

2 double bed, 1 triple bed, 3 bathroom, heated pool; secluded cul-de-sac.

A 2 double bedroom, 1 triple* single bedroom (* one 'fold-away'), 3 bathroom (2 ensuite) fully air conditioned detached villa with first floor sun terrace with sea views, set in landscaped gardens at end of quiet cul-de-sac. Fully heated 'all season' private pool, and special facilities for mobility restricted guests. The spacious open plan living area is particularly well suited for wheelchair access.

Recently refurbished to a high standard throughout, just five minutes work from the Village Square and all amenities.

Villa Malaika has an elegantly furnished lounge with double aspect French Doors to both veranda and poolside terrace. The lounge has both a flat screen TV and a DVD player; we have multi channel international Sky TV providing all major UK channels. The living space is fully air conditioned and comprehensively furnished including reading lamps.

The dining area has a large oak finish table that comfortably seats six adults and forms a convenient focal point for card games and family entertainment. There is plenty of room to draw up a highchair - or even two!

Our fully equipped kitchen is designed to meet all needs. If you are staying with us early or late season, or for an extended stay you may well want from time to time prepare family meals or even entertain new friends - we have everything you need from blenders to coffee machines and all in between.

For the young family we provide travel cots 'readybeds' and high chairs. We have a stock of outside games as well as something for that rare wet day!

Al fresco dining: Villa Malaika sits in a large landscaped plot and you can enjoy al fresco dining by the pool or by the BBQ, or just simply 'spill out' from the lounge onto the veranda. Then there's the 'Splash Slide'.... we may not have the largest pool you've ever seen, but it's heated and a lot of fun! Adults included!

Sleeping Arrangements:

Master Bedroom: spacious accommodation with king-size bed and built in wardrobes; en-suite bathroom comprises jacuzzi bath and wet room style shower area. French doors open on to 'walk out' balcony with views over the village; fully air conditioned.

Bedroom One: again, specious accommodation with king-size bed and built in wardrobes; en-suite shower room/WC; fully air conditioned. French Doors open on to large sun terrace with retractable sunshade.

Bedroom Two (downstairs): is a large triple single bed bedroom (third bed being a 'fold away') with built in wardrobes and French Doors leading to poolside terrace (allowing easy wheelchair access); fully air conditioned. Large shower room with WC and restricted mobility aids is immediately next door. The French Doors lend themselves well to wheelchair access.

We also have a further 'Zed Bed' stored under the stairs (and associated linen). The large open plan lounge will easily accommodate this bed, that can simply be folded up and rolled back the next morning; we would suggest ideal for teenagers if necessary!

Heated Pool:

We aim to retain a (daytime) water temperature of c. 28degC through the season. From May to September, heating is provided by our solar hot water system with all costs inclusive in our rates.

In the 'shoulder months' of March, April, October and November the solar system is unlikely to retain the pool at these temperatures. We offer the option of supplementary electric heating during these periods for an additional charge of £100 per week. Please advise ius in advance if you would like to take advantage of this optional extra.

Beautiful villa in a very peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

First impressions count and I found Phil absolutely lovely to deal with.

The villa was more than we expected.

The space inside is carefully used with quality furniture. All three bathrooms are of good size and have fantastic shower enclosures with the third bathroom being a fab wet room. We loved the open plan kitchen dining room. The kitchen appliances all good quality and new with an abundance of blenders juicers etc :-)

Poolside was a good size slide was fun for us all we had lots of fun outside. The carport is positioned so the pool is in the shade which is beneficial if you have children in the pool. It was heated pool which was great. The established gardens are beautiful and we enjoyed them.

Very impressed with the equipment avail which included safety gates z bed potty toys jigsaws and board games.

Tala itself is undergoing work so the square itself is difficult to get round but it didn't stop us walking round (even with our pushchair) and we found plenty of great places to eat and drink.

Overall we were very happy with this villa had a lovely peaceful holiday enjoyed the balcony everyday morning and night. Thank you Phil :-)

Comfortable Villa Set in Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa set in a quiet location just a short 10 minute walk from the square in Tala, which has several great places to eat. The villa was very clean and comfortable and has reliable wi-fi which we’ve always found problematic at other villas we have stayed at. The kitchen is well equipped should you wish to dine in and there is also a large bbq in the garden. The garden looks fabulous at night with colourful lighting. We enjoyed sitting up on the upstairs balcony enjoying the views. It can get very hot on the balcony but the owners have thought about this and there is a fantastic awning which keeps the sun at bay. A fabulous place to just chill out and unwind with a good book and a glass of wine. The pool was warm and we enjoyed a few afternoon splashes. We took our elderly father who was happy there was a bedroom downstairs with a full sized bathroom so everything he could need was on ground floor level. The owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. This is a villa which would suit all ages and has all the facilities to keep everyone happy. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Malaika lived up to its description. An incredible holiday villa. Very quiet location but within walking distance to the village square with tavernas and bars. The house and grounds were immaculate. The interior bright and clean. Very modern and exactly as seen in the photographs. The facilities for disabled guests is a nice touch. Everything about the interior shouts quality! Good sized rooms and well presented. The house was spotlessly clean. No faults whatsoever The maintenance team for the pool and garden were friendly and helpful and the property manager provided us with many options for sightseeing trips.

The garden was a real bonus. Plenty of space to move around. A great BBQ area which is ideal for lazy meals. Pool with water slide which the children enjoyed. Plenty of shaded areas too!

In summary, the villa was a delight. A perfect holiday base for people who require a top class villa. Immaculately presented with lots of extras not normally found in holiday homes. A lot of thought has gone into the villa and it shows. I have no hesitation of recommending the property to anyone who is looking for a top class holiday villa. I will certainly be booking again next year!

Well-equipped, very clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A well-equipped , very clean , comfortable villa situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. No noise from neighbours and not overlooked . Lovely to sit on the upstairs balcony in the evening with a glass of wine and watch the sun set. Good sized swimming pool - the slide is fun ! Nice grounds lit in the evening. Enjoyed using the BBQ but ate at several local eateries - recommend the village meze at Melitzia Taverna in Tala Square.. Only a short drive to great beach at Coral Bay . Recommend Oniro by the sea restaurant for a cocktail and good modern food - just a short distance beyond . Definitely need a car although the local bus service to Paphos was cheap and reliable. If you're fit, there's a good walk from the villa up to Saint Neophytos monastery for a cup of coffee at the cafe under the trees. Is was handy having a welcome pack as we arrived late.

Would definitely recommend.

Approximately 50% of present resident are expatriate Europeans with the biggest group coming from the UK.
