Charming villa a stones throw from the beach.
All organisation and booking easy and well executed. A beautiful and well maintained villa that has everything you need for home cooking, which we did on a few occasions. Lovely nights out at the habour, dining and drinking and shopping. Everything you need for a fab family holiday or a couples holiday. Thank you Peter for a fab holiday rental, would and will recommend HomeAway and this lovely villa.
Perfect holiday in a lovely villa!
Wow! This was such a lovely holiday! We were so impressed with the villa's location - just a stone's throw from the beach and perfect for a morning or evening stroll to the harbour for a drink.
The villa was perfectly equipped with all the mod-cons you would hope for. It was especially nice to have a washing machine and dishwasher, as well as a modern fully-fitted kitchen. Upon arrival, the villa was in immaculate condition and had been cleaned very well; the token welcome pack with some milk, bread etc was also a lovely touch as we arrived late in the evening and the stores were closed.
There are many amazing restaurants around - Polis and in the hills at Kathikas were where we found our favourites (we have written the names of these in the guest book). The vineyard was a great way to taste (and buy!) some wine for the week, and very good prices.
We hired a boat from the watersports centre in Latchi and sailed to the Blue Lagoon - you HAVE to see this!
Overall, a really great villa with a fantastic location, very friendly owner and a holiday to remember! Highly recommended!
Lovely holiday by the sea
Villa Sara is in a great location in Latchi and has everything you need for your holiday. Slightly dated, but clean, well equipped and everything in working order. Lovely patio area with view of the sea. We especially appreciated the aircon (it was very hot when we were there), the proper freezer for ice, and the beach chairs and umbrella. It is easy to walk into Latchi to the marina for food and drink, and a short drive to Polis for larger supermarkets and the pretty town square. We had a beautiful late afternoon walk along the Akamas peninsula - it would have been too hot earlier in the day, and swam at least once every day. All in all a great relaxing holiday.
Perfect For a Relaxing Holiday
We have just returned from a fantastic stay in Villa Sara. Situated in a very quiet location 1 minute walk from the beach. The Villa is fully equipped with everything you need and is basically a home from home and very comfortable.
The location is ideally situated between Polis and Latchi giving easy access to tavernas, restaurants and shopping either by foot, car, taxi or bus.
On our 1st day the television stopped working as we were watching the world cup and I was personally quite pleased as someone who is not a football fan. However Maria and Peter arranged a replacement the next day, which much appreciated by my other half..
We have visited this area in Cyprus 4 times in the last 12 years and consider Villa Sara our best choice yet and would have no hesitation in recommending it.
Thanks to Peter and Maria.
The garden is very private for relaxing
Excellent Holiday Home from Home
Villa Sara is a perfect home from home in the sun. Located in a quiet location but only a 15 minute walk to local shops either along the beach boardwalk or road, and a 2 minute walk to the beach.
There are good views of the sea and bay from the terrace garden. Flowering Oleanders, bougainvillea and bushes surround the back garden, giving privacy for dining and relaxing outdoors. There is also a pergola so you can always find shade if needed. The garden is well equipped with sun loungers and an outdoor dining table and chairs.
The Villa had everything we needed, including a dishwasher and washing machine. There’s an excellent TV package and the wi-fi was great for keeping in touch. Everything was well cared for and clean.
Thank to you to owner Peter, for the useful and helpful advice and for offering such a lovely home from home.
Not worth what we paid for
Not very clean, one air condition not working,very poor condition of sofa bed, no sea view due to very tall tree fence around the back yard, tv not working.
I am very sorry to read these comments.
I was made aware of the faulty air conditioning unit and instructed immediate action be taken to rectify the faulty unit, but would have appreciated some previous communication about the other "apparent' issues prior to them appearing on this review.
Unfortunately, it is necessary to clarify the facts.
1. Regrettably, the air conditioning unit in one bedroom did indeed stop working during thee guest's stay. It was inspected as soon as possible by an Air Conditioning Engineer and was found to be beyond repair. A replacement unit was ordered immediately but unfortunately the delivery period was 7 days and therefore it was not possible to replace the unit during the guest's stay. Fans were supplied to provide cooling and the replacement unit has now been installed. The remaining air conditioning units in the villa were, of course, fully operational. I do understand that this may have been especially difficult with the number of additional guests at the villa.
2. I have been letting the villa for 12 years and have had the pleasure of hundreds of clients visiting the villa in that time, and this is the first comment I have received about the villa not being clean. Please refer to the other 20+ reviews for a balance of opinion.
3. There are no trees in the garden of the villa. There is a carefully maintained hedge at the back of the garden that provides privacy to the elevated terrace but does not obstruct the sea view. The villa has excellent and wide ranging views of the sea over this hedge - unless, of course, you are lying on the terrace floor!
4. The tv is a new flat screen model and is fully functional. This is a satellite service and regrettably, due to adverse weather conditions, the satellite signal was temporarily lost for a short period.
I am very disappointed to hear of these comments, and also the guests refusal to leave the property at the contractual time, the justification for which was that an air conditioning unit was not working, and therefore it gave them the right to depart at a time/day of of their choosing, not withstanding the fact that another group of clients were arriving imminently that day.
I will leave it for readers of this review to assess the facts, in conjunction with the other 20+ reviews on the villa, and make their decision accordingly.
Latchi is situated in the North-West corner of Cyprus, nestling between the small picturesque town of Polis and the beautiful Akamas peninsula National Park. A stunning region of Cyprus, steeped in history, offering wonderful country and coastal walks and cycling. Main town of the region is Paphos, some 35kms away. Among its attractions are its ancient mosaic floors, its beautiful old harbour, and restaurants situated along the promenade. Sights include an archaeological museum, the Byzantine castle of Paphos, the Tombs of the Kings, St. Paul’s Pillar and the Temple of Aphrodite. The coastal route from Latchi to Paphos offers stunning panoramas of the coastline and the distant hills of the Troodos Mountains. This part of the island possesses all the elements of a perfect holiday location, including small sandy beaches that rank high on the list of some of Europe's best. Cyprus enjoys more sunshine than any other Mediterranean resort - typically 340 days of sunshine a year.
