About Marina Davies
Hello! We are the Davies family and the owners of this lovely villa. My name is Marina and myself and my husband Huw, (Welsh spelling!), live in Surrey with our two young children. We spent many wonderful holidays in Coral Bay before deciding to buy a villa and as I am half Cypriot, I have always had a close connection with Cyprus. I am a stay at home Mum, so aside from looking after my family, I devote my time to looking after our guests to ensure that they have the perfect holiday. I do this by providing a very personal service, catering to individual needs and requests. I want every guest to feel really special so nothing is too much trouble. When guests book our villa, I give them a very comprehensive guide to the area including restaurant recommendations and places to visit which is particularly useful if it is your first trip to Cyprus. I can also help with car hire if you wish to explore the island. Whatever your requirements, I am here to help you.
Marina Davies purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Marina Davies chose Coral Bay
We bought a villa in Coral Bay because it's perfect for families and has everything you could want from a holiday. The beaches are clean and sandy with warm shallow water making them perfectly safe for children. It is peaceful and relaxing, yet it's also a lively resort so offers the best of both worlds. If you like being active there are numerous water sports, scuba diving, tennis, golf, cycling etc, to name but a few or you can relax in one of the nearby spas. We also love Coral Bay because it retains the traditional characteristics of Cyprus with its grape vined tavernas and fishing villages but there are also more contemporary restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes. Coral Bay is also very accessible as Paphos Airport is just a 25 minute drive away. Coral Bay is our haven!
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is special for the following reasons. Firstly, the location is fantastic. It is situated on a very quiet and secluded cul de sac which is safe and traffic free. The fabulous sandy beach is directly opposite (3 mins walk) and the restaurants and cafes are also within walking distance so there is no need to hire a car. We have equipped the villa so that it feels like a real home from home with every comfort you could wish for and this is what my guests will often comment on. The garden is a really special feature of the villa as it is larger than most and mainly laid to lawn which is ideal for children. It is also very private as we have mature hibiscus hedging all around. We have very comfortable garden furniture for you to relax on and as the garden is so peaceful, you will soon be drifting off to sleep, just make sure you are wearing sun cream! There are, however, plenty of areas of shade, either under the umbrellas or palm trees. Our property managers are one in a million. They keep our villa in an immaculate condition and are so caring and attentive to our guests, nothing is too much trouble. They will be on hand to offer general help and advice while you are in Cyprus and have a 24 hour emergency help service. The guest file which is left in the villa also gives emergency phone numbers for all the hospitals, clinics, on-call doctors and 24 hour pharmacies in the area. We have many Wedding parties and honeymooners staying with us due to our close proximity to the Coral Beach Hotel (3 mins walk) and we ensure that their stay with us is extra special with lovely treats! Please do ask to see our long list of guest testimonials. Finally, we would love to have the opportunity of welcoming you to our villa!
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Amazing family holiday!
Just returned from an absolutely amazing family holiday from this beautiful villa. We’ve had such a blast and made some terrific family memories. Perfectly located to the main strip where you’ll find plenty of places to eat and drink, a beautiful beach and stunning scenery. By far the most private property on the complex too. Stunning garden with lovely smelling plants and flowers all beautifully maintained. Cannot rate this highly enough. Also Marina and her maintenance team were absolute stars throughout the whole process, nothing was too much trouble and they are always happy to help. You will
Not be disappointed! Thanks Marina, we hope to be back soon! Love Lauren, Reece and gang xx
Dear Lauren, Reece and Gang,
Thank you so much for your really wonderful review. I am so happy that your first trip to Cyprus was so enjoyable. It sounds like you made the most of all the local amenities and enjoyed the peace and seclusion of the garden. It’s so important to have your own private space when you’re on holiday and not to be overlooked. I was only to happy to be able to help with your special requests for Reece’s birthday celebrations, I wanted the occasion to be memorable for you all. You were fantastic guests and we would love to welcome you back one day. In the meantime, thank you again for your kind words and I wish you and your family my very best wishes. Marina xx
A whole new world
Our second stay at this absolutely amazing breathtaking villa. So many wonderful and beautiful memories made here as a family. Every detail in the pictures is what you get simply stunning. Fantastic area lots for the kids there is everything you need and more! Everyone is so kind and friendly and the service you get from Marina is absolutely superb. We will be back again!
What a wonderful review! I am so touched by your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome you back again to my villa and I am so happy that you have spent precious family time together and created memories that I am sure you will cherish. You were wonderful guests and will always be welcome to come and stay again. I wish you all the very best in the meantime. Lots of love to you all, Marina xx
A top class holiday villa!
Without doubt the previous reviews of this villa could not be more accurate. It is very large, well maintained and in a first class location.
It is within 200 yards of the beach where you find the bus stop for buses into paphos. The owner Marina could not be more pleasant and helpful from my initial contact when booking the villa. Likewise any problems during your stay are immediately dealt with.
Unfortunately we like many other holiday visitors were let down by visiting in January during the worst period of weather Cyprus has witnessed during the past 30 years. However please don’t be put off by this because the few days of weather we did have during our stay was warm showing what it is apparently like under normal circumstances.
To sum up A1 accommodation. A1 communication just a shame we had no control over the freak weather we encountered. So many thanks Marina.
Hello Len and Brenda, Thank you very much for your really kind words about the villa and about me, so sweet of you. As I also mentioned to you, you were an absolute pleasure to correspond with. Cyprus did indeed experience a freakish weather condition, the likes of which the locals thought might possibly be signalling the end of the world, it was so unusual. I have had guests staying in the villa in January for the last 13 years and for every one of those years, the weather has been warm and sunny with beach days even possible, so you were extremely unlucky. I am glad you had some pleasant weather which is typically how it should have been for the duration of your stay. Therefore, please don't be put you off visiting Cyprus in the Winter again. Thank you again for your kind words and I hope to hear from you again one day. Marina x
Perfect for a relaxing holiday in Cyprus
We had a had a fantastic holiday in marinas villa
This villa is perfect weather like us you want to relax or you want to use it as a base.A typical day for us started with me chasing the polar bear out of the pool ( boy that waters cold in October) then a 5 min walk to the supermarket for fresh bread and newspaper then basically chilled by the pool . Then either went out to eat usually at the hole in the wall ( quiz night on Thursday) or a night in watching telly ( who new there was so many cooking or dancing shows )
5 days in we turned the tv to find we had every sport and movie channels you could wish for, i felt a bit like joey in friends when he got free porn and didn’t turn the tv of for days ( don’t worry marina we didn’t do that )
This villa was just perfect for us and hopefully we will be back one day
Hello Phil, Thank you for your very original review!! Not sure how to respond to some of your comments :) but I am very pleased you had a lovely holiday!
I have to say we never turn on the TV when in Cyprus so I have yet to discover some of the channels you did or hopefully didn't!! The children watch the kids channels but that's as far as we get. I am glad you enjoyed the pool and garden and found it relaxing which is the most important aspect of a holiday. Thank you for choosing my villa, we would love to welcome you back again one day. In the meantime, I wish all the very best to you and your family. Marina x
We Came, We saw, We returned.......
The wife and I came out last September, for just a week to stay,
For the first time at Villa Marina, in the beautiful Coral Bay.
The sun it shone all week, we had great food beer and some wine,
So we pledged to return this September, but for at least TWO weeks this time.
We loved our first stay it was really great, but this year was even better, So I thought I’d write this cheesy little poem, or maybe, is it feta??
The Villa was how we remembered it,
a proper welcoming home from home,
Close to the lovely beaches bars and restaurants, to whence you can easily roam.
There was just me and the wife, (no kids, what bliss), but there could’ve easily been more,
In fact there are three comfortable bedrooms, so room for at least another four.
There’s a DVD player and satellite TV, if "British Bake Off" you can’t do without,
And plenty of good books in the villa, into which you can bury your snout!
The pool has been relined and looks great, with new steps as well put in,
It looks even more inviting than it did last year, which in my book is a definite win!!
The sun beds are just so comfortable; many a lunch time snooze was had,
And the sun never leaves the gorgeous garden, for which I’m sure you’ll all be glad.
But watch out for the non-stop sunshine, it’s really awfully strong,
You could get some serious sun burn, (trust me!!) if you stay out in the sun too long.
As well in the garden there’s a Cypriot BBQ, we used it once or twice,
Kebabs on the grill, a cold Keo in hand, it was really awfully nice!!
So all in all what more can I say about staying in Villa Marina, Coral Bay,
Just the biggest compliment I think anyone could give, “We hope to be back one day!!”
Paul and Nadine
Dear Paul and Nadine, what can I say to such a wonderfully poetic review! Definitely the most creative and inspired I’ve ever received. Thank you so much for taking the time to put this together. You have been a pleasure to have as guests on two occasions now, so appreciative and considerate. I’m so pleased that you enjoyed the renovated pool and made the most of relaxing in the garden. I want all my guests to feel chilled and at home. I look forward to welcoming you both back (with or without kids!!) one day! Thank you again for your really wonderfully original review. My very best wishes, Marina xx
We had a fantastic time at the villa a real home in a fantastic location
The villa is stunning ,bright and modern. Marina was so helpful from our first enquiry. Cannot recommend highly enough
3 mins walk to the picturesque Corallia Beach, one of the best sandy beaches in Coral Bay, 5 mins walk to the main Coral Bay Beach.
Paphos airport is a 25 minute drive. Car hire is not necessary as all the facilities are within 5 - 10 minutes walk and there is a bus stop just across the road. You can get a bus from outside the development direct to the WaterPark and fares are very cheap. A taxi to the airport is approx E38.00 for a 4 seater and E48.00 for a 7 seater.
3 mins walk to the sandy beach and nearest bars, restaurants and supermarket. 2 mins walk to bus stop. 3 mins walk to the Five Star Coral Bay Beach Resort and Spa. 8-10 mins walk to Coral Bay main strip including shops, bars and restaurants. 15 mins drive to Paphos town centre and harbour with historic sites, bars and restaurants. 15-20 mins drive to Aphrodite water park. Beautiful coastal walk from the villa.
Rugged and unspoilt Akamas Peninsular (perfect for Quad biking) is only a 15 mins drive. Lara beach and Turtle beach 20 mins drive. 4x4 vehicle recommended for travelling this coastline.
