Villa in Kissonerga, Nr. Coral Bay, Paphos, Cyprus - Peaceful Location, 15 Minutes Walk To The Beach
About Jill Dagha
Joe, my partner and I live and work in England. At the moment we only holiday in Cyprus, escaping from the pressures of work relaxing with all of our new found friends, in such a beautiful historic country. It has been less than 10 years ago that Joe and I first visited Cyprus, we fell in love with it immediately and dreamt of buying a house in readiness for our retirement 15 years hence. We went home having had an amazing holiday, but after a cooling off period of four months, we returned to fulfil our dream.
Jill Dagha purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Jill Dagha chose Kissonerga
We bought the villa off plan, the location was so important, we wanted to be a part of a village, but not far from the sea or the town. Kissonerga was perfect, we are literally 5 minutes walk from the village which has all the amenities that we need, including 2 great restaurants, a 15 minute relaxed stroll brings us to a stunning beach close to another outstanding restaurant. 5 minutes by car, you will find yourself at the very popular Coral Bay, 15 minutes drive in the opposite direction will find yourself at the picturesque Harbour in Paphos, surrounded by brightly painted fishing boats, and private yachts and all dominated by The Fort and the Mosaics and all only an hours drive to the Mountains of Troodos.
What makes this Villa unique
We took delivery of our villa in May ten years ago, and very soon discovered not only how much Cyprus and Paphos in particular had to offer, but also just how wonderful it was. To relax in the evenings alongside the pool, a glass of wine, soft music and succulent food from our barbecue, or to walk up the hill to the next village which is Tala, to sit in the Village Square and watch the world go by. It really is a taste of paradise

Delightful villa in Kissonerga
We returned to this villa a second time and found it even more enjoyable. It’s more like you’re staying in someone’s well loved home than renting a holiday home. It’s clean, comfortable and well cared for and communication from the owner was helpful. Any request or query was promptly responded to. We’ll definately return here again.
A great place for a holiday.
Great villa, full of everything you could need. The kitchen full of all the things you have at home, which has been sadly lacking in other villas we have used (Not with Home Away, other villa operators).
Outside is the same, great pool that seem to stay very clean. load of seating outside and tables too.
Like the new shutters and the fly screens on all the ranch slider doors and windows ( this means no flies in the villa), couple this with the ceiling fans meant the villa stayed cool without using the Aircon.
John the guys that looks after you during the stay was very helpful and informative giving a number of recommendations for restaurants etc and they all proved excellent. We did have a couple of minor thing and John was instantly to fix and put right - Excellent John thanks.
Jill (the owner) was excellent too, both during the booking process, before our trip and our stay, just an email away.
A villa to be recommended.
Well Andy you have done me proud. We spend a lot of time and effort during the year, up-dating, replacing and improving the place for our Guests. Talking both on the phone and largely by email to yourselves, I realise that what we do is so important, it is wonderful to me to make my Guests feel not only on holiday but at home too.
You were a great Andy, and I only hope that we shall hear from you again sometime soon, I’m sure we will
Enjoyable relaxing holiday
Had a lovely relaxing hoilday once again at Jill,s property everything at hand that you need in the property , comfortable beds,furnishing ect property nice and clean pool was cold due to time of year but grandson still made use of it, many thanks to John and Pat once again for picking us up and dropping us back at airport ,car came in very handy to get out and about as it is a fair distance to big supermarkets, nice bite to eat at Julie's bar in village ,also Coral King, and Haris little village restaurant . Many thanks to Jill for the smooth communications during booking and follow up information regarding the property .
Thanks Muriel for your great review. Do look forward to hearing from you again on your next trip to Cyprus.
2nd time here and love it.
2nd time staying here the villa is lovely and has everything you could want. Jill has always been a pleasure to deal with. Planning on returning again next year just love it.
Short, sharp and very sweet. Thank you Nicola for such a great review, so looking forward to communicating with you again next year when you holiday at our Villa again.
Very comfortable and attractive villa. Use of the owner's car was an added bonus.
One of the main benefits for us for choosing this villa was the added bonus of the use of the owner's vehicle for an additional fee plus the benefit of being picked up and dropped off at the Airport by her neighbour John, giving us worry free travel. The Villa itself was very comfortable and provided everything we needed. Unfortunately, we did not have very good weather for most of our stay and did not get the full benefit of the attractive outside space and pool but we enjoyed seeing many of the sights which the Island has to offer. Jill, the owner, was excellent at responding quickly to any queries we may have had and equally John next door was very friendly and helpful when we needed his assistance plus his two dogs were very cute.
For those who prefer to be closer to shops and nightlife, this villa is perhaps not the choice for you, however, we enjoyed the more local village atmosphere and thoroughly enjoyed the bars and restaurants in the village which were a ten minute walk away.
We would definitely consider renting Jill’s villa again should we visit the same area.
Thank you Marilyn for such a lovely review, greatly appreciated. You were good to communicate with, and responded quickly to my emails to you too.
Really do hope that we hear from you again in the future, when hopefully the weather will be warmer. It Is unusual to have had such cold weather in February, and indeed for several days over Christmas during my stay, we had some unusually colder days.
Take care and hopefully talk soon.
Lovely villa, great host!
Just come back from our wonderful stay in this villa. It was exactly as described, spotlessly clean and very tastefully furnished, it was an ideal place for a holiday. From the moment I booked, Jill was very quick and easy to deal with, supplying me with all the necessary information to prepare for the stay, she also communicated with us in the run up to our holiday, while we were there and after, which was very reassuring. We hired her car as well, which was very useful to get around and made the arrangements simple, as we were picked up and dropped off at the airport by John her property manager. John was very helpful and always on hand during our holiday, he was only next door and chatted with us most days.
The villa is in Kissonerga which had a few places to eat (as described in the description) and a small supermarket. We also went a bit further down into Lempa where there was an excellent Italian for coffee and a bakery which had lovely doughnuts and cakes. We ate out at Julies bar and Sunset Breeze (kissonerga) and Duomo (Pathos) and all are recommended, as they understood and provided gluten free food for my son, Duomo had gluten free pasta..
Would highly recommend this villa for anyone wanting to stay in a relaxing area close to Pathos
Thank you Jayne for such a super review, so detailed, which I know will benefit many future guests.
You too were so easy to communicate with from the onset, and always replied to my emails promptly.
Really do hope that we hear from you again sometime in the future, and hopefully when the Boys are chosen to play Golf in the tournaments again, you will choose us as your base to stay.
We look forward to hearing from you.

After 30 years of negotiation, finally in May, 2018, The Paphos Marina has been approved and a Developer appointed. Potima Bay is approx 1.5 miles from our Villa, and an exciting time for us all.
The Paphos marina at Potima bay lying between Kissonerga and Pegeia will be a crucial project for Paphos. When finally built, it will have a capacity of 1,000 berths. The project will take approximately three years to be completed. In addition to berthing for 1,000 vessels, the project will include more than 42,000 square metres of residential and commercial developments

Kissonerga is well located, and ideally positioned to explore the many places to visit. The village can be reached on foot in 5 mins and has several restaurants, 2 supermarkets, a bank and pharmacy.
