Sylvia and Alistair McNab
About Sylvia and Alistair McNab
My wife (Sylvia) and I (Alistair) live in Aberdeen Scotland , we have two grown up children. We have owned the villa from new and our regular visitors to Cyprus (Peyia and Coral Bay) as we have family who live in Peyia on a permanent basis. We are familiar with all the local restaurants which we can recommend and we can also assist with respect to car hire golf etc... The villa / pool is managed/maintained by a British couple who live in Coral Bay who are available to assist you during you visit.
Sylvia and Alistair McNab purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Sylvia and Alistair McNab chose Peyia
In May 2018 we have renovated the villa , decorating , changing furniture , new pool liner , BBQ and a new internet and tv provider . We regularly holiday in Peyia/ Coral Bay at various times throughout the year. We have found that the area has a lot to offer throughout the year including beaches, golf courses and a variety of restaurants and entertainment. The villa is located in lower Peyia and is also very convenient for the night life and restaurants of Coral Bay and the tavernas of Peyia village. The villa is also on a bus route. For those interested in hiring a boat, we would also recommend a trip to Latchi / Polis which is less than 30 minutes in the car. We certainly love the area which is ideal for both families and also couples who wish to relax.

Such a lovely stay
We are Family of four with two young girls. The villa is beautifully furnished and had a really homely feel. The inside was immaculately clean, kitchen was extremely well equipped. Excellent location easily accessible to towns beaches and supermarkets. The wifi worked well. Quiet residential street so no noise. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate booking again if we were in the area. Only slight criticism was being October, the pool was a little cold especially for my youngest so could have done with some heating and some of the outside furniture could have done with better cleaning.
Enjoyed the villa
Enjoyed the villa and in a good location.
Slight confusion at the begin with villa not ready but quickly resolved once contacted agent in cyprus. Very recommended
The view was so good, the whole family enjoyed staying at the villa. I wouldn’t hesitate recommendin
It was a beautiful holiday; Peyia is a good location, not too far off from the centre of Paphos.
The swimming pool was icing on the cake; fantastic experience.
May return to the same address next year if it’s available.
LOVELY VILLA WITH GREAT POOL
Had our second stay in this villa and again had a lovely holiday. Villa very comfortable and reliable internet (if required). Yvonne (Manager who looks after villa) very helpful and has a lot of info on the area. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend
We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay in the villa . We are constantly looking to improve the villa .
We had high hopes for this villa however all is not as described. The broadband IP/TV box stutters and freezes and so makes the TV virtually unwatchable. There is no Satellite TV. There is no iPod docking station. The safe is not a combination lock safe but a key one. The air con is limited to two hours by timers, so if you want air conditioning during the night you have to wake up every two hours to turn it back on. The pool liner is not new and the scum line on this one would rival any in Cyprus. The barbecue is no longer gas but charcoal still in its box - don’t forget your screwdriver! The welcome pack is not free of charge. The information pack is a couple of pages of smudged and stained notes overwritten by hand multiple times.
This villa requires a full deep clean and refurb! The sanitary-ware is stained; the kitchen switches have embedded fat, food and dust; the hob extractor fan is filthy; the oven looks like it has never been cleaned; the toaster had not been emptied; the cutlery and glasses are dirty; the dining chairs are stained and dusty; the two sets of patio table/chairs are dirty with stained/moldy seat covers; one of the outside lamps is held together with gaffa tape and the kitchen bin and some patio chairs held together with sellotape! The blinds downstairs are dirty. The paintwork on the walls is scuffed, scarred and dirty with countless greasy hand prints. The windows have not been cleaned in millennia. We spent the first few hours of our stay cleaning what we needed to use. There are annoying things like the bathrooms do not have any towels rails or hooks just a hand towel ring; no hair dryer which is standard these days; if you want to use the DVD player you have to swap the scart connectors on the back of the TV.
This was the eighth of nine properties we stayed in whilst in Cyprus and by far the worst. We did not contact the local agent or the owner about these issues when we arrived as anyone presenting a property in this state would not understand our issues and we were on holiday. The local agent Yvonne did pop round on day 3 and we gave our feedback. Yvonne of course asked why we had not contacted her as she would have got the cleaners back in. We explained that we wanted peace and quiet not cleaners running all over the place and besides the sort of deep clean we think this villa needs would not have been accomplished in a few hours. Yvonne apologised and said she would pass our comments and feedback to the owner
To be frank I am also very disappointed with this posting I firstly I would like to apologise to the guests , this is not acceptable , we have never received a negative review in more than ten years so this will be taken very seriously We will take this onboard fully and ensure that all the points are actioned and taken onboard . As owner I am relying on our agents as I don't regularly visit the villa.
For 2018 a full list of actions is being prepared and shall be implemented for the season . The villa will be in A1 condition for 2018
Lovely comfortable villa
This was our third visit to the villa. The villa is spacious and comfortable with everything needed for a relaxing holiday.
Any issues have been dealt with promptly by the management team.
The pool is well appointed and well maintained with plenty of sun loungers for enjoying the Cypriot sun.
Piega has a number of traditional tavernas offering good quality good value food. Coral Bay is a five minute drive away if you fancy something a bit more lively.
One recommendation I would make, is that it would be a good idea to provide mirrors in the bedrooms and not just in the bathrooms.
I would recommend this villa if you are looking for a relaxing break as it is ideal for both family’s and couples.
We will definitely be returning,
Coral Bay Blue Flag beach with its abundance of sun lounges, parasols, water-sports etc is just 5 mins drive away, there are a selection of other local beaches too that you may wish to visit during your stay so a car is recommended if you would like to explore many places of the island. It is also recommended to visit Latchi which is a 30 min drive from the villa . Boat hire is available at Latchi and there are many beach front restaurants at reasonable prices.
The Villa is situated 25 mins away by taxi from Paphos International Airport. Larnaca airport is approx an hour and a half with the majority all new motorways. Car hire is highly recommended; vehicles are right hand drive and are readily available to pick up at the airport saving your taxi transfer and allowing you to discover this beautiful island. Car hire is recommended and villa owners can recommend car hire companies at reasonable prices.
The villa is located in lower Peyia and is located less than 1km from Peyia village where there are many tavernas , supermaket, bakery, bank and post office.
