Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Pegia (Peyia) - Villa Coral Retreat. Coral Bay

3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Sleep 6/7Inc Cot, No car needed Beach 10min walk Aircon BB

Villa Coral Retreat is a beautiful, 3 bedroom villa, with private pool, set in a large garden and is superbly located in the heart of the lovely, Coral Bay Village. Our villa is one of the twelve individually designed villas, that make up this lovely, private cul de sac, which is much sought after due to its privileged location and well maintained, much loved properties. Coral Retreat also benefits from having Wi-Fi connection.

A mere two minute stroll from the villa leads to the great selection of restaurants, tavernas, shops and supermarkets of Coral Bay. While, a ten minute walk takes you to Coral Bay Beach, the first, of the two lovely beaches in the area.

The great location of our villa, being within easy walking distance of everything you need, means that car hire is not at all necessary. There is an excellent, inexpensive bus service, which runs through Coral Bay and links to Paphos old town and bustling Harbour area. However, if you choose to drive, it is a great way to explore the beautiful island of Cyprus and to discover the many treasures Cyprus has on offer.

Arriving through an arch of fragrant white Stephanotis, you get the first glimpse of the well tended garden and to its focal point, the cool, refreshing private pool. The garden and pool area are substantial and accommodates the comfortable, stylish garden furniture with plenty of space. A must for your long, leisurely Cypriot lunch is the welcoming shade of the gazebo and for your evening alfresco dining the Cypriot BBQ is on hand for you to enjoy. All designed for you to relax and make the most of your holiday villa in Coral Bay.

The garden is fenced to add to the privacy and has gates to the entrance and driveway, making it safe for our little guests.

The villa benefits from, large open plan lounge/dining and kitchen areas and is filled with light from the large patio windows (kitchen is well equipped with all you need). Furnished to a high standard in brown leather and marble, there is a contemporary twist to the villa and a strong emphasis on comfort. Plants dotted throughout compliment the airy Mediterranean feel.

Air-con is throughout the villa. (Air-con is inclusive)

Wi-Fi has been installed for your convenience and a satellite TV system with a varied choice of most UK channels. The DVD/CD has a good selection of DVD's to choose from. There are also family board games to keep everyone entertained and make the most of family time together. Or for your chill out time a large selection of books can be found at the villa.

Ground floor cloakroom.

The three bedrooms are simply, but, beautifully finished, they each have high ceilings and all benefit from, fitted wardrobes and ample draw space and a safe. Clean linen and towels are provided, along with pool towels for your stay.

The master bedroom has a double bed and ensuite, the large patio windows lead from the master bedroom onto the balcony, where you can sit and watch the morning sunrise over the mountains and enjoy the glorious Cypriot sunset over the Mediterranean seas.

Bedroom two has a double bed and shares the balcony, while bedroom three is to the rear of the villa and has two single beds. The family bathroom is found on this floor and has a bath with a shower.

A cot and highchair are provided free of charge and for your arrival a welcome pack awaits you, with our compliments.

Perfect for couples, families or families holidaying together. Our holiday villa in Coral Bay seems to suit all ages, these are some of the comments that come back time and time again.

To help you decide if our villa is the right choice for your families needs, have a look at our reviews and comments which our previous guest have kindly taken the time to write.

We stayed at this villa in late Feb 08 and is without doubt the best we have ever stayed in for quality and position. All the equiptment was new and very clean.

If you decide to book the villa I am sure you will have a great time, we did.

Beautiful Villa, Great Location, Fantastic Owners

  • 5 of 5

From the minute I sent the initial enquiry and Katherine responded I knew I had made the best choice. Although I am a regular user of HomeAway the first class communication from both Mike and Katherine was appreciated and would be very much so if you are not used to booking through here.

From the arranged airport transfer (Nestor) arriving at the Villa which was exactly what we expected from the photos, the kind, generous welcome pack and the fantastic location we knew we had chosen well. What I really liked is that it feels like a home not just a cold, souless holiday rental property.

The large outdoor area is beautiful, lovely comfortable patio furniture which compared to some of the neighbouring villas was welcome as many of them had quite basic plastic chairs etc.

Just a few minutes walk and you are in the heart of Coral Bay with many bars and restaurants to choose from. We tried a couple of the restaurants recommended by Katherine and enjoyed them so much we went to both twice. The Italian, La Vigna was by far the busiest, most popular and deserves to be as the food was great, and you have to go to Oniro By The Sea, just stunning beach bar with top quality cocktails and food even if you don't have a car the taxi is €10 and it's worth every penny.

The villa was lovely and clean and the beds were comfortable, most of our time was spent outdoors but it was nice to see English TV available as it is so rare when we have been away before (not that we watched much).

We arranged a trip before we went with Paphos Wine Tours, would highly recommend this trip if you want to do some sight seeing and obviously like drinking wine! We did 3 winery's ending at Vouni Panayai Winery which was the most beautiful place to enjoy a meze lunch. We bought lots of cheap, good wine that we could enjoy back at the villa on our stay in nights/BBQ.

Huge thanks to Katherine and Mike for looking after us, you clearly work very hard at making sure everyone has a lovely holiday.

Phillipos supermarket just 10 minutes walk from the villa was perfect for us as we didn't have a car we could easily walk there, do a 'big' shop and not worry about getting home as they provide you a free delivery service, just ask at the checkout and they arrange it immediately and saved us the walk back.

It was our first time to Cyprus but will definitely not be our last and I have a feeling we will be seeing you at Little Sea Sparkle in Wales sometime soon............ ��

Paul & Nadine said "We'll Be Back" ...............

  • 5 of 5

& we were!!! Second time at Villa Coral Retreat but this time it wasn't the same..... it was even better!! We first stayed here back in 2012 and we had a great time then and this time was just as good if not better!! The villa itself was exactly as we left it last time with the added bonus of a new kitchen and UK chanels on the TV.............. not that either of them got used much, well, we were on holiday!! Again the villa was kept at a very high standard, a very welcome "welcome pack " when we arrived, the villa itself spotlesley clean. plenty of plates cuttlery etc, towels for the pool/beach; and the sunbeds, well they're to die for!! I can't remember the number of times I had a quiet snooze on the sunbed whilst "pretending" to read me book!! And that's what me and my good lady did for most of the holiday, lazed by the pool reading and chating, listening to music interupted by the occasional dip in the pool to cool off, oh it was horrible!!

For those of you in search of a bit more action there's the water sports down by the beach, quad bilkes to hire at the top of the road, jeep safaris, plenty of bars/ restaurants along the strip with some great food and some great entertainment on offer through out the day and night! A new bar to open since we were last there was the "Brick n Ale", great for a quiet drink and bar snack style food early evening if you don't fancy the full on dining experience!! Our favorite restaurants?? The Italian "La Vigna"on the corner, lovely, "King Solomans" by the super market, lovely, "Phidias Tavern" down by the Pizza Hut, lovely, and last but not least, The Pizza Hut................... ONLY JOKING!!! Best for entertainment, Blazing Saddles, Elvis still "hasn't left the building", and Kikos, some great acts in both who can entertain but don't take themselves too seriously!! Once again Katherine and Mike (the owners) were more than helpful throughout, even answering our first booking email on New Years Day as we were suffering from big time New Year Blues and HAD to book a holiday to cure them!! The on site management team were again spot on. We had a "dust drop" one day and the pool was a bit grimey, one text, a quick visit from Carrie and then the pool cleaners turned up, all done with the minimum of fuss!! So, once more, a great time was had by me and the wife, so much so that we considered claiming "squatters rights" and staying on for a few more years............ one day perhaps, if we win that lottery!! P & N.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful villa in an excellent area of Coral Bay with all local amenities within a 2 minute walk. I travelled with my husband and 2 teenage children and the villa had everything you needed and all the small finishing touches made it home from home. The villa is large, well equipped and has a beautiful outdoor pool area. The management team on hand are excellent and visited on our first day to make sure all was well. Katherine couldn't have been more helpful and we definitely would like to return.

lovely holiday home

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and tidy upon our arrival. Carrie very helpful when we arrived answering any questions we had. We found the "strip" a little noisy at night in that we couldn't open the patio doors whilst sleeping and had to rely on the air-con unfortunately.Hired a car for three days and would recommend a trip up to the Troodos mountains. The kids loved Paphos water park. All the restaurants we ate in were very good. Made friends with all the cats and had a generally lovely relaxing time around the lovely pool area

Villa Coral Retreat is in a truly enviable position. It has the advantage of being within easy walking distance of the superb amenities of Coral Bay. Coral Bay is described as being the 'Jewel in Paphos' crown', this small holiday resort is found on the outskirts of its busier neighbour, Paphos. It has a lovely friendly, comfortable, safe feeling and attracts guests back year after year.

There is a great selection for the evenings, chic restaurants mingle with traditional tavernas, some offer family evening entertainment, such as Greek dancing (mainly in high season) or you can just enjoy quiet intimate dining and appreciate one of the local wines. This combination, along with the beautiful beaches makes Coral Bay the perfect location for a holiday in Cyprus.

An excellent bus service is accessed 2 minutes away from the villa (a flat walk) and runs regularly to Paphos historic old town and market and the lovely Paphos harbour with medieval fort. The fare is about 1 Euro each way and a day ticket can be purchased and you can hop on and off as you wish. Alternatively there are many options to join one of the wonderful organised guided trips.

For our younger guests, enjoy safe swimming in the local beaches, a ten minute walk away, here in the crescent shaped, shallow water of Coral Bay, many water sports are available, pedaloes, diving, paragliding etc. or consider a visit to the near by zoo, the water park at Paphos or the Go-Karting, in Paphos or Coral Bay, the list goes on.

Visit Lara Bay, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, here, within in the Akamas nature reserve is where you will find the hatchery of the loggerhead turtles.

Marvel at the amazingly well preserved Tombs of the Kings and the mosaics in Paphos.

Further a field take a visit to the wonderful Troodos mountains (skiing in winter), stopping off in one of the small villages, such as Omodos along the way, immerse yourself in the feeling of village life and enjoy a long leisurely lunch.

Kourion is another wonder of Cyprus and in my opinion, well worth a visit.

Closer to home, ladies pamper yourself at the 5* Coral Beach spa resort or the Thalassa boutique hotel while the gentlemen visit one of the local golf courses.

A car is not needed to visit many of these wonderful places but, although not essential car hire makes exploring a must.

Culture and sport events.:

Outside the walls of the medieval fort at Paphos harbour, the Paphos Aphrodite Festival hosts a yearly, open air, Opera under the stars. This wonderful experience takes place in Cyprus annually in September. An event not to be missed by opera lovers.

Cyprus International 4-day Challenge. A four day running event - Not for the faint hearted.

Weddings:

Cyprus Weddings: With Cyprus reputed to be, The Island of Love.

Cyprus has played host to many happy couples getting married and we have been delighted at Coral Retreat to accommodate many couples and wedding parties.

Dietary:

Dietary requirement: Gluten free. A welcome pack of gluten free bread and products can be made available on request, for guests with Coeliac Disease.

Perfect accommodation for families, families getting together, couples, wedding accommodation, golfing, or ladies pamper breaks.
