About Mrs S Waltham-Stephenson
Pete and myself Sandie live in Worcester England , we have two golden retrievers and a horse which keeps us active. We fell in love with Cyprus when we went on our first holiday to Paphos in September 2004 the following year we spent our honeymoon their and have been back every year, its a beautiful Island and the locals are so friendly and make you welcome. This inspired us to to take it one step further and start looking for a place for ourselves and family to enjoy. We purchased Sandreter in October 2007 and took possession of the property in June 2009 and spent three weeks furnishing the property to a high spec and making it into a very welcoming holiday home. We are very proud of Sandreter and welcome people to take the opportunity to enjoy Sandreter as much as we do. The property is close to all amenities.
Mrs S Waltham-Stephenson purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Mrs S Waltham-Stephenson chose Mandria
We chose Mandria for its beauty and charm. The property is located just a 5 minute walk from the very charming and traditional village of Mandria. The maisonette is just a 15 minute drive from Paphos and more or less the same to the two golf courses Secret Valley and Aphrodite Hills. The airport is 8 minute drive from the house. So no long hauls from and to the airport. The area is very flat around the village, maisonette and to the beach so accessibility and getting around is not a problem and very good for mobility purposes. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with orange groves and farmland surrounding the village and down to the beach, if you love walking the area offers so much. The area also attracts bird watchers from all over. We like Mandria because its not commercial and offers everything for a peaceful tranquil setting. The restuarants in the village are varied with three Cypriot restuarants the famouse chip shop and a Thai/chinese/Indian restuarnat which is new to the village called Karma.
What makes this Villa unique
The property is a convenient five minute stroll to the village and a ten minute walk to the beautiful sandy beach. Its location is ideal for if you just want to potter around or go site seeing its close to Paphos and the Harbour the coastal road and the motorway if you want to explore further. Its approx an hour from Troodos Mountains and 2 hours from Nicosia. The property is ideal for anyone who has a mobility problem, the surrounding area is flat and access to the property can be through the front patio door and their is a large sofa bed in the lounge. The pool is a a very good size and their is also a paddling pool, surrounding the pool is large sun terraces and pool side showers, their are also changing rooms and toilets down some stairs next to the pool.

Thank you Sandie and Pete for letting us stay in your beautiful and comfortable house Sandreter in Mandria. It was everything we wanted for our holiday, and it had everything we could possibly need and more. The sunsets every night from the back garden were amazing, we had relaxed days by the pool or a 5 minute walk down to the beach where there is a bar and sunbeds, and just a short walk up to the village to the taverna's. I would recommend Sandreter to anyone looking for a nice relaxing week or two. We will definitely be going back in the future. Thanks once again Sandie and Pete for letting us use Sandreter.

Dear Ray and Sue
Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review on Sandreter. We are so pleased you had a wonderful holiday and comfortable stay in Sandreter and it was what you expected and more It means alot to myself and Pete. We look forward to hearing from you in the future.
Sandie and Pete
Sandreter is truly a home from home and perfect for families and couples alike. The home is very clean and has everything that you could possibly require for a self-catering holiday. The property also benefits from good quality furnishings, wifi and British TV channels (although with the Village centre so close we were not in many evenings to watch TV). There are fly screens/shutters fitted to all windows and patio doors, resulting in no mosquito bites on this visit to Cyprus and we could sleep with the windows open meaning we did not need to use the air conditioning much at all. The communal pool is directly opposite the property and is clean and well maintained, although we didn't use it as we prefer the beaches. Overall we got good value for money for the two weeks that we booked and would have no hesitation in recommending the property to others. We would definitely book it again in the future.
The owners Sandie and Pete provided first class customer service in the lead up to the start of our holiday, providing local directions, access arrangements, wifi connection and provided for a few groceries (at our request) to get us off to a good start following a very late arrival.
We encountered a few minor communications issues with the Owners Direct website sending us several messages asking us to confirm our booking which we had already done and paid for by Visa, however a quick email to Sandie resulted in her calling us to put our minds at rest and confirm that all was fine. The new payment method (Visa) provides additional security for Customers.
Mandria is a lovely quiet village and the local people and ex Pats that we met were all very friendly and helpful. The property is only a short walk to the village centre where you will find a good selection of tavernas and restaurants to enjoy great food (very large portion sizes!) and drink at very reasonable prices. There is a pebble beach just 10 minutes walk from the property where you can find sunbeds, parasols and a small beach bar. However we preferred the beaches at Geriskipou and Pissouri Bay which are both sandy and approx. 15 mins drive away. Paphos airport is only 10 minutes drive from Madria which is convenient, although you will hear some aircraft noise as a result. It is not too bad most days with a bit more air traffic on Wednesdays and Fridays which are the busiest days, although it certainly didn't spoil our holiday in Mandria.
Hi Michelle thank you so much for your positive and informative review. We are so pleased you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed Sandreter and what it had to offer. We do hope you will consider our property for future holidays. Kind regards Sandie & Pete
Beautiful house in stunning location
The maisonette was absolutely beautiful. Tastefully decorated throughout with all mod cons including WiFi, air conditioning and satellite TV. The front garden overlooked the swimming pool and the rear garden had stunning views including the sea. The property was immaculate and kept to a very high standard. The location was perfect for us, the village was a 2 minute walk with a choice of restaurants and local village shop. The local people were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The beach was a 15 minute walk away. The swimming pool was directly opposite and of a very high standard, our 7 year old never wanted to get out! We will definitely be returning and we had an amazing holiday here and highly recommend this property. In a word, perfection.
Hi Lisa, thank you so much for the very complimentary review. Pete and I are over the moon you liked Sandreter and Mandria, we think its a beautiful place and its great to share it all with our friends and new guests. Thank you so much Sandie and Pete
Many thanks to Sandie and Pete for the use of their lovely home from home. Easy to find with a pleasant walk into the village for food in the evenings if you don't want to go far, and plenty of places to visit for good food if you have a car to potter around in. Their home has all you need and is lovely and quiet, really relaxing holiday. We would highly recommend going to Sandie and Petes. Thanks guys

This is the second time staying at this fantastic home,which is lovely.It is a great home from home,very clean beautiful furniture just a great place to stay with everything you need. Lovely outside space to sit and relax and enjoy the great weather.
This is a very quiet place but you walk to all the small places to eat which i will say are ALL great places,not over expensive at all.Great fish & chips but all portions at all the places are huge,you will never be hungry once you have eaten.
The local shop is abit more expensive but local supermarkets are all good.I would suggest a hire car so you can explore the local beaches etc. Coral bay is just lush lots of interesting places to go.
I would highly recomend this house to rent,its a FANTASTIC place to stay.
