About Brian Heade

Brian was born in Cardiff, Wales and Val in Hampton Court, Surrey. We have been living outside of the UK since 1980, and retired to Cyprus in 2008.

Brian Heade purchased this villa in 2000

Why Brian Heade chose Paphos & Suburbs

We built our main home in 1994, and later had the opportunity to purchase the plot in front of ours. So, we were able to build the holiday home in 2000, two levels below us, which enabled us to save our magnificent views.

What makes this villa unique

The benefit of the home, is that, Brian and Val live above the property for any local advice and problem resolutions. However, we do try to have minimal impact on the guests, and carry out the gardening and pool cleaning facilities when guests are not in residence

Already missing you.

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived home from our wonderful 16 day holiday in the mini villa. This was our 5th stay and we have already pencilled in our next one. What more is there to say.

We agree with everything Elaine, the previous occupant, has written, including the reference to the excellent car rental from Andy Phillips.

The villa is all you could want in a relaxing holiday home - large comfortable bed, clean and spacious bathroom, good kitchen and comfortable lounge with a lovely shaded patio overlooking Pathos town.

The garden is wonderful and the swimming pool is the best you could wish for.

The villa is very well situated for some excellent tavernas which are very welcoming with tasty inexpensive food and all are easy to get to. Val and Brian are a font of very useful information which they are always more than happy to share with you.

Thank you again Val and Brian for a very special holiday in Tsada. Looking forward to seeing you again in Spring 2017.

Sue and Rowland

Best holiday villa we've stayed in

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? The warm welcome begins before you arrive with the question red or white! (That being the preference of wine in the thoughtful welcome pack that Brian & Val provide & includes a jar of Val's delicious homemade fig jam, we enjoyed ours stirred into sheeps yogurt).

The villa is in a most beautiful garden with a choice of places to sit, on the terrace by the living room, or a welcome shaded place under the Carob tree or the seats at the far end of the pool where you can enjoy the evening sun. The villa itself is really comfortable and is well equipped with everything you could possibly need.

I was so pleased that the pool lived up to the photos I had seen (I feared that it might be clever photography). It really is a good size pool and a pleasure to swim in. Not having to share it is a real bonus.

It is certainly a place where you can relax in the peace & quiet, but if you want to explore it is a great starting place (they provide a good folder with information and ideas of places to visit).

We had a really happy holiday, relaxing, swimming, trying some suggested restaurants, taking a stroll to the local taverna. I really didn’t want to go home! We look forward to a return holiday, hopefully next year.

I’d also recommend hiring a car from Andy Phillips (suggested by Brian), excellent service and really laid back style of business. Being met at the airport with our car was marvellous.

Owner's Response: It is difficult to find any fault in this wonderful critique! Since Elaine and Brian are first time visitors to our villa, we are extremely pleased that it has lived up to critiques of our past visitors, and Val and I hope to meet them some time in the near future

Home from Home in Tranquil Setting

  • 5 of 5

As this was our 7th visit to this home from home, it is difficult to know what to add to previous reviews. The villa is exactly as described in the listing and the owners Brian and Val are superb hosts, who are on hand if required for recommendations etc, but never intrusive. The welcome breakfast, including home made jam, is great, especially if your flight is late in and you don't wake up until 1pm! You do need a car to make the most of the quiet out of town location, but that is all you need apart from clothes. With airline weight restrictions it is great to be provided with all the essentials, right down to beach towels, shampoo and shower gel. If you have favourite brands, most are available in supermarkets. In fact, one of them stocks Tesco branded products.

One bedroom villas are rare and this is a gem not to be missed. We are already looking forward to next year.

Owner's Response: We always look forward to Ben and Tania's return to our villa, as they are so positive about Cyrus and have been coming here for 21 years. They love their 'home from home', which is much easier to manage than them buying into a timeshare system, with all the expense and worry that type of investment would bring! We look forward to their return next year, and we know when they will be coming because they always book early to avoid disappointment.

Feels like a second home by now

  • 5 of 5

What is it that made us to come back to this place the fourth time, and what is it that already makes us to look forward to our next stay? It's the tranquility of the setting, the idyllic garden, the picturesque view to the sourrounding hills and the sea, the tidy house equipped with everything you need, and all the little extras Val and Brian will provide you - such as fresh fruits from their neighbours' garden, self-made fig jam, hummus, beetroot-chocolate cake (wow!), and of course: Brian's infamous Cyprus Brandy Sours (we never had better ones elsewhere!). Thanks again for another lovely holiday! David and Patrick

Owner's Response: Many thanks for David and Patrick for this glowing critique of your stay. I can only claim responsibility for the Brandy Sours, the beetroot cake is the domain of Val. We very much look forward to seeing you again in the not to distant future. Best Regards, Brian & Val

Quality property with an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

Private and peaceful setting with the property having every amenity on hand along with an excellent swimming pool.The owners Brain and Val(suitably on hand if needed) prepared a lovely starter pack prior to arrival along with a detailed map to reach the property. At the property there was a detailed information pack for all the local restaurants, lovely scenic drive routes along with options for all types of sightseeing; WiFi was also available. Val and Brian were very accommodating with useful tips on what to do and how to manage your stay in Cyprus-all in all a brilliant welcome, great property in such a tranquil setting- will highly recommend to friends - and certainly will return-no stress at all -just what we wanted Chris and Liz 6/5/16

A lovely place for vacationers

  • 4 of 5

This was our first stay at the villa, which was recommended to us by some good friends living close nearby.

We arrived by car from Larnaca airport which is about a 160 km drive to Tsada.

When entering the premises we were immediately impressed by its wonderfully styled and well kept garden with its fantastic lemon tree, blooming flowers, plants and cosy and shady sitting areas. And we also enjoyed the lovely view down the valley overlooking Paphos with its flickering lights at night time.

Another positive element is the quietness of the place – some city folks may yet have to get adjusted to such tranquility.

The villa itself was absolutely suiting our needs and expectation. It has all the amenities a vacationer needs and the living room emanates a homelike athmoshere. Not to forget the carepackage for breakfast and the comprehensive information material provided by Brian & Val.

There is no WiFi in the villa. This may be felt a deficiency for some people – on the other hand one can enjoy this as a temporary relief from everyday internet hassle.

The swimming pool in the first half of April was still too fresh for a comfortable swim; however provided nice areas for sunbathing. In midsummer it certainly constitutes a good asset of the villa.

So all in all we were very happy staying there and when we eventually will return to Cyprus we certainly will seek another retreat in this villa.
