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.
A welcome pack of essential food items is available for an additional £15.
We charge a small additional amount for pool heating (£10-£15 per day depending on the time of year).
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.
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.
