About the property

Excellent Location, Quiet and Convenient. 200m to sandy beach & close to Coral Bay shops/restaurants. No need to hire a car, WIFI

Sleeps 6 + Infant. Villa Marina is a stunning detached 3 bed villa, perfectly located on a quiet cul de sac in a gated development. It is just 3 minutes walk to the best sandy beach in Coral Bay and within walking distance to all amenities.

It is beautifully furnished and offers luxury and comfort throughout, with attention paid to every detail to ensure the perfect holiday. The open plan living/dining room is bright and spacious with flat screen Satellite TV (with all the main UK Channels) and DVD player. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would expect to find at home. The master bedroom has a king size bed, luxury en-suite and a balcony with table and chairs to enjoy the fantastic sea views. All rooms have A/C, incl. in the price. WIFI is available on request. If travelling with infants, a cot, highchair and Avent steriliser are provided free of charge.

The villa's tropical garden really sets it apart. It is particularly large as it is situated on a bold corner plot and is very private and secluded with tall hibiscus hedging around the perimeter. It is a place where you can relax and unwind on comfortable sun loungers with extra thick cushions, while your children play on the large area of lawn or in the private pool (free toys and inflatables also available). The pool is always kept in an immaculate condition and has a shallow and deep end to suit all swimming abilities. There are graduating steps built into the shallow end of the pool which makes it much easier for young children to safely enter the pool, (Please note that the pool has been recently completely refurbished with new built in steps. Some photos show the pool before the refurbishment but I have kept them as they still show off the garden!). There are 2 large patios with comfortable furniture for alfresco dining and a traditional stone BBQ for the warm summer evenings. As the villa is on a cul de sac, there is no through traffic, so you can allow your children to run wild in the garden knowing they are safe.

Coral Bay is perfect for families as its beaches are safe and clean with warm shallow water. All the nearby restaurants are welcoming and very child friendly. The 5 star Coral Beach Hotel and the Thalassa Hotel are just a 3 minute walk where you can indulge in their wonderful Spa treatments. Horse riding, fishing, go-karing, tennis, scuba diving and other watersports are all available close by. Three excellent golf courses are within a 20 minute drive and Paphos Harbour and town centre with its historic harbour and museums is less than 15 minutes by car. Paphos airport is a 25 minute drive. Therefore, car hire is not necessary unless you wish to explore more of the Island. Car hire can be arranged on request. There is also a bus stop just opposite the entrance to the development with a regular bus service into Paphos town centre and Aphrodites Water Park. The famous Troodos mountain range is a 2 hour journey.

Villa Marina offers the perfect holiday for families and couples whether you are looking for fun fills days or quiet ones just by the pool. We make special arrangements for honeymoon couples to ensure their stay is truly memorable. All our guests are very well looked after by our fantastic property managers for whom nothing is too much trouble. If you have special requests or need particular assistance, please let me know and I will do my very best to accommodate you.

It is this personal service and the feeling that the villa is their 'home from home' which keeps our guests coming back to us year after year.

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just come home from our second stay at the wonderful villa Marina and it was just as perfect as we remembered. As before, Marina made the whole process so easy and was amazingly helpful with all our enquiries.

The villa really does have a 'home from home' feel with everything we needed to help make a holiday with two young as easy as possible. Our 4 year old loved being in the pool every day and the grass area, which is so beautiful and unique, was great with a 7 month old. The location is just ideal being over the road to Corallia Beach and within easy access to local restaurants and Coral Bay - you really couldn't wish for more.

The property managers, Barry and Elaine, were fantastic and were really responsive and helpful with any questions.

Thank you for all the little touches, we look forward to our next visit.

Fabulous villa and holiday

  • 5 of 5

Another fabulous two weeks spent at Villa Marina - spent two weeks there September 2016, and have already booked to go back in 2018. I love this fabulous villa, its like home from home. Everything you need is catered for, it is so well equipped and furnished, and it is kept so clean - I have been to villas before where we have had to wash the crockery and clean cupboards before we could use them,  not so here, everything is immaculate. The villa is really spacious, and the garden is beautiful and so secluded,  and the pool is great and looks stunning at night when it is lit.  The location is ideal, quiet and away from the hustle and bustle - but less than 5 minute walk from beautiful Corallia Beach, some restaurants and a supermarket, and then there is a great regular bus service which goes from Corallia Beach along the coastline, to places like the Coral Bay Strip - 5 mins by bus, where there are lots of restaurants, and a very good large supermarket, and then on to Pathos. Marina the owner is superb, so helpful and friendly, and it is such a pleasure to communicate with her, and she is always so quick to respond. Barry and Elaine - who manage the villa in Cyprus, are really friendly and helpful to. Can't recommend this villa enough - but whether I should be as I will end up not being able to book it myself due to demand !!

Owner's Response: Dear Lesley, Thank you for writing such a lovely and kind review. We are so happy to welcome you back each year and I am so pleased that you feel like our villa is your 'home from home' as that is exactly how we hope our guests feel about our villa. Barry and Elaine do an amazing job of keeping the villa spotless, they work so hard and I couldn't manage without them! I have also visited villas in Cyprus before we bought ours, when I had to clean the kitchen before I would consider preparing food in it! I think you could safely prepare food on the kitchen floor in our villa! We are looking forward to welcoming you back to your home next year. Lots of love, Marina xx

We Came, We saw, We returned.......

Villa Marina

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!!”

Owner's Response: 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

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday here to celebrate my 40th birthday and my daughters 12th birthday. We arrived late at night and as we entered the villa myself and my daughter were pleasantly surprised to see gifts and cards left for us on arrival! Barry came round the next morning and he was lovely he also told us to not hesitate to get in touch if we needed anything. From the very start of booking this villa Marina has been fantastic and so helpful and made sure everything went smoothly for us.

We went to Cyprus 2 years ago and stayed in a hotel and while this was fine we have all much preferred going to a villa. The villa itself was extremely clean, very spacious and had everything you could need. The pool and garden area is secluded which was brilliant we had many a lazy day around the pool and are missing it already!

We hired a boat for the day from George's watersports at Latchi which was really good fun! We also went to corallia beach which was nice and quieter than Coral bay, we went into Paphos a few times and went to the medieval castle. Other than that we spent most of our time relaxing which was just what we needed. The kids absolutely loved the villa and spending all day in the pool and having BBQ's at night and of course going on gecko hunts!

Lots of happy memories have been made!

Owner's Response: Dear Clifton Family, Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review. I wanted to make sure that your double birthday celebrations were special so I am so pleased that you had a wonderful time. I am happy that you enjoyed the garden and pool, my kids love it too, its great to have the pool and garden to themselves, they can run wild! I also agree that its seclusion and privacy makes a huge difference to the enjoyment of the garden. It is so much more relaxing when you know you are not being overlooked by anyone. We also love having BBQ's at the villa and our traditional stone BBQ is so easy to use and produces really delicious food, definitely better than the gas BBQ that we used to have. We always hire a boat in Latchi when we visit, such a great day out and Paphos harbour is lovely early evening when you can watch the sun go down over the Byzantine Castle. It sounds like you made the most of your holiday but had plenty of time to relax as well. I want to thank you so much again for staying at my villa and I am particularly honoured that you chose it for your special occasion. I do hope to hear from you again one day, we would love to welcome you all back! Lots of love to you all in the meantime. Marina xx
