Villa Mara is a light, bright villa, furnished in a contemporary style. It sleeps up to 6 adults with room for cot beds (one included) and is in a quiet location a few minutes' walk from the beaches and restaurants of the highly sought after Cape Greko area of Protaras, home to the beautiful beach of Konnos Bay and the Grecian Park Hotel.
The rental price is fully inclusive of private pool, sun loungers, air-conditioning, wi-fi internet access, satellite TV, CD/DVD player, Xbox 360 games console, iPod speaker system, outside dining, gas fired barbecue, table tennis table, bed linen, towels, 24 hour key collection & management service and a welcome pack of essential food items.
The open plan layout of the living, dining and kitchen area is modern and relaxing. Complementing this are 3 bedrooms (1 double, 2 twin), a family bathroom, downstairs wet room and pool side shower.
Villa Mara is ideal for families, guests attending weddings at the Grecian Park Hotel and friends seeking a luxurious break in the sun.
Things To Do: Cyprus has over 300 days of sunshine a year, making it a great place for outdoor activities. On the east coast they invariably involve water! At Konnos Bay Beach (15 min walk/3 min drive), Mike’s Watersports has a variety of up to date boats, jet skis and water activities including water skiing, parasailing, pedalos and banana boats for hire.
Mimosa Beach is a 10 min walk from the villa, has a secluded and sheltered beach which is ideal for swimming with children and there is a bar serving food and drinks all day. It is also here that a tennis court can be hired by the hour for €5.
The Grecian Park Hotel, a 5* establishment increasingly popular for as a wedding destination with its magnificent view over Konnos Bay, is a 10 min walk away. It has a spectacular cliff top bar, restaurants, tennis courts, a gym and spa which are all open to non residents. Many of our guests attend weddings at the hotel.
For those who enjoy diving, the Cyclop's Cave dive site is a 10 min walk from the villa.
For a family water experience, WaterWorld water park in Agia Napa is a fun way to spend a day.
Things to Do: In Agia Napa harbour there are a variety of boat experiences on offer: 2 hour swim and snorkel trips in the nearby sea caves; day trips up to the UN patrolled border from where you can see the “ghost town” of Famagusta and evening dinner cruises. Turn up and decide which one is best for you: there are options for every budget.
For those who want to explore the local area in something other than a car, Ham-Yam Rentals is, in our opinion, the best place to hire bicycles, scooters, motorbikes and dune buggies. It is within walking distance of the villa on Cape Greko Road.
All of Cyprus is accessible from the villa within one day, even Paphos on the west coast. We love driving to the Troodos Mountains, out via Nicosia and back via Limassol. The area is quite beautiful and is full of traditional Cypriot villages nestling on the side of the mountains. Eat well, visit churches, monasteries, vineyards and swim all on the same day.
Golf, Ski and Health & Safety: Golf - there are three courses within driving distance Aphrodite Hills, Minthis Hills and Secret Valley.
Ski - there is a short snow season in the Troodos mountains from January to March with fun to be had by all ages from tobogganers to serious skiers. The Troodos mountain range stretches across most of the western side of Cyprus and is about 15C cooler than at the coast year round. There are many famous mountain resorts, Byzantine monasteries and churches on mountain peaks and, nestling in valleys, are picturesque mountain villages clinging to terraced hill slopes covered in vines. Omodos is one such village.
Health & Safety - Villa Mara is fitted with the following safety equipment to make your stay as comfortable as possible: three smoke alarms, fire extinguisher, fire blanket, first aid kit, glass door stickers and a wall mounted safe.
I have just returned from 13 days at the Villa Mara with my 2 sisters. We all agree that it is a beautiful Villa in a really good location. It's situated more or less equidistant to both Protaras and Ayia Napa.
The standard throughout the villa was excellent, having wi fi was a real plus and the pool was big enough to swim in.
Paula and her partner were really helpful but didn't intrude in any way.
All in all, I have been visiting Cyprus for over 20 years and this Villa was good value for money and exceeded my expectations, the description given in the advert is accurate. I would certainly recommend to friends and would stay there again myself.
Nice property with everything we needed for an enjoyable weeks stay.
Received a welcome pack with tea ,coffee ,butter , milk , bread & a bottle of wine which was very useful as we had
a late flight.
Villa very clean & tidy had all your home comforts.
Barry & Sheena came twice to clean the pool & were most pleasant & helpful.
Thanks to Adrian the owner who was most efficient & accommodating, would not hesitate to book again if we come
this way again.

We visited Villa Mara in May 2010 for ten days and found it an attractive, very well appointed and equipped villa, with comfortable furnishings and a relaxing atmosphere. The terrace/barbecue area provided an excellent place for dining and we especially enjoyed breakfast in the open air each morning in the sunshine. A dip before lunch in the pretty pool area was most welcome.
There were a number of very beautiful bays and beaches nearby and we took a short boat ride from one. We also took a scenic drive to the Troodos mountain area, which being somewhat cooler, was good for easy walking. We enjoyed a number of good, very friendly restaurants, a number of which were within walking distance of the villa which we found so welcome on arrival after our flight. We found interesting towns within easy reach and nearby Agia Napa boasted attractive and good restaurants: we especially liked the family friendly Limanara which is situated on the coastal road.
The owners provided a very useful information sheet before we departed and it was good to find that the local management company was most helpful and really did appear very quickly when needed. Thank you for a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday and we look forward to visiting again next year!

In July 2010 we visited Villa Mara and had a fantastic holiday. The Villa is well appointed for a great family holiday and in a great location for near by beaches. The Bus stop on the main road [ 2 Mins from Villa] is idea for those who wish to get about Cyprus without the use of a hire car or go into the main resort area where there are numerous bars and resturants..
The directions and other information given in advance meant the Villas was easy to find. The management agency are located close by and the staff are very helpful should you encounter any problems duriny you're stay. We will definitely return to Villa Mara and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Ian & Liza and the girls.
Cape Greko is at the southern end of Protaras and is a designated National Park. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is home to Konnos Bay Beach. Arguably the most beautiful beach in Cyprus, Konnos Bay appears in all the Cyprus tourist board brochures and films and is a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from Villa Mara. For keen divers the Cyclop's Cave dive point is on the way to Konnos Bay along the coastal path. Mimosa Beach with its quiet, calm waters is a 10 minute walk. There are restaurants, cafes, bars and a convenience store all within 10 minutes walk of the villa with the most spectacular being the cliff top bar at the Grecian Park Hotel, a must do experience during your stay. Tennis courts are within walking distance and bookable by the hour at two nearby hotels, one of which also has a spa and offers beauty treatments.
By car Larnaca airport is 45 mins, Ayia Napa 10 mins (bus stop within 200m), the supermarkets of Paralinmi 10 mins and golf 60 mins.
