About the property

Beautiful 2-Bedroom Villa (sleeps 6), large pool, nr beach, seafront and harbour

Zeus Gardens is a beautiful and contemporary Mediterranean-inspired luxury-equipped two-bedroom villa situated in Kato Paphos (the part of Paphos nearest the harbour and seafront), Paphos.

Every luxury has been thought of and the villa is spacious and beautifully furnished, sleeping up to 6 with large bedrooms, huge floor to ceiling wardrobes (to easily store all your holiday luggage), a fully equipped kitchen, a gorgeous shared swimming pool set in pretty courtyard gardens - just steps from your terrace - and every extra thought of. It is ideally placed being situated in a peaceful area around 10-15 minutes pleasant level stroll from the famous harbour and seafront with its blue flag beach, shops, bars and restaurants. Everything can be reached easily on foot so a car really isn't necessary unless you wish to travel further afield.

There is a local cafe and shops just round the corner for all day-to-day needs and plenty of lovely restaurants and bars all the way down to the seafront.

The property is very well equipped for 6 including such things as hairdryer, beach towels, picnicware, games and books etc and is furnished and finished to a high standard with plenty of space, plenty of storage, granite worktops, microwave, washing machine, good quality furniture, a lovely terrace overlooking the swimming pool with table and chairs for al fresco dining and balconies both front and rear (so you can always have sun or shade!) - off each bedroom, complete with tables and chairs to relax with a book or drink.

Every detail has been thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible and we can provide airport transfers, welcome packs and linen changes if required for a small charge. There are lovely ceiling fans in all main areas as well as optional air conditioning (£5 per day) in the bedrooms. We also offer flexible arrival/departure times and days (this being our main bugbear with package holidays!) so you can usually stay in the property right up to your flight time. Optional TV & Wi Fi is available for a small weekly charge (pro rata for part weeks) with numerous channels and catch up TV available via a set top box).

Zeus Gardens is our home away from home - we aim to make it yours too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely stay here. The villa is clean and beautifully furnished and equipped. We especially liked the front and rear balconies and the terrace. The complex is well maintained with a lovely pool and it is close to all amenities and to the Paphos archaeological sites. Heather was so helpful. Thank you for a great holiday!

Great house with all the equipment you need. We had the pool practically to ourselves nice and quite only about 10 minute walk to the harbour which is lively if you want that every night. We found a great walk along the coast. Would defiantly go again

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely two week stay here on our family holiday. The house is very well equipped, well laid out, and was spotlessly clean. A part shaded patio area was well used for breakfasts and lunchtime snacks. The pool area is just a few metres down from the patio area, and while always busy never seemed crowded, and there was never any problem placing sun loungers in the positions we wanted. There seem to be a lot of owner occupiers in this small complex who were very friendly and always keen to give advice about places to go, and places to eat, etc. There was a genuinely friendly atmosphere around the place. On this note, the owner has a Review book in the house where guests are invited to add cards and reviews from restaurants they have visited, this was very useful. The house is situated in the Universal area of Pepos and is about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the main tourist and harbour areas. We walked in and back most evenings. There are two mini markets about a 5min walk down the road which we found stocked everything we needed for our stay. All in all we had a super time here and would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Every thing you need for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 4 August 2017 for 10 days

The villa was great, well equipped with many extras, for example, in one of the cupboards in the living room we found a footpump ( for inflatables) a selection of hats (needed in the strong sun) books, beach towels, games and leaflets with info on things to do in area. The pool was great and was cleaned regularly. As we visited in August many of the villas were occupied but we found everybody to be friendly and the pool was never crowded. We decided to hire a car as wanted to see more of the place and drove up into the mountains, the roads were quiet and the views were stunning. We stumbled across a village called Polis which was charming. Visited a few beaches but liked Coral bay the best. Lots of good places to eat out we liked Pambis which is very close to the villa. There is plenty to do in the area boat trips, Tomb of Kings, the Harbour, markets, shopping open top bus ride etc. We had two 16 year old boys with us and they found plenty to amuse themselves. Heather was brilliant to deal with and was very accommodating to our many requests ie if there was a bus from the airport ( there is but in the heat with baggage get a taxi). Heather arranged for us to be collected at the airport.

Would defiantly recommend this villa and would like to return some day.

lovely & quiet

  • 5 of 5

we booked through Heather who was very helpful but we stayed in the property ID201075 which is adjacent to the property shown. It was lovely and clean, everything we needed towels, bedding, kitchen equipment, free wifi and it was very quiet (just what we wanted.)

Kath (who owns the house we rented) was very kind and helped at all opportunities even booking our taxi to and from the airport. The property is about 20 minutes walk from everywhere which was good for us as we were out of the hustle and bustle but could go to it if we wanted.

We would rent the house from Kath again!

Lovely holiday home, with everything just a short distance away.

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the accommodation, space enough for a family of three. We were a little disappointed that there was no TV, but in the end it didn't affect our holiday experience. The property was clean and tidy, the shared pool never got busy or noisy, unlike some holiday properties. The comments book was very useful to help us find our way around and saved lots of time trying to navigate ourselves. Everything we needed was a 15 minute walk or less away, so we couldn't be happier with the location.

The owner was very prompt in inserting any questions prior to and during the holiday, always polite and courteous. I would definitely recommend the owner and the property.

Property nice but not as advertised

  • 3 of 5

Received an e-mail from the owner the day before travelling to advise there were problems with the fridge/freezer and an offer to stay at an apartment not far away but no wifi available. We advised we wanted to go with the original booking. Upon arrival these problems had been ongoing since August so were not new. There was also an issue with the shower, however after a phone call the shower was repaired and a new fridge delivered.

We had been considering this property advertised with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and another in a neighbouring complex which was considerably cheaper with only 1 bathroom but opted for this as we had 2 16 year old girls who like to take their time showering! extremely disappointed to find we had paid the premium price for a cloakroom containing a WC and sink - no shower/bath.

Excepting this it was a lovely peaceful holiday, good location however you do have to pay for a linen change? Would definately return to this area again but perhaps not this acommodation.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review and I am so glad you had a lovely holiday. As mentioned I was unaware of the issues with the fridge/freezer - it was previously re-gassed, which is maybe what you saw from previous comments, but the current problems had just begun; which was why I contacted you prior to your holiday. It was then re-gassed again the day before you arrived. As you felt the temperature was still not satisfactory a brand new fridge/freezer was delivered within half an hour of your phone call. The shower hose was also replaced within half an hour. I do hope this shows you that I really do take guests' comfort seriously. Unfortunately the property has never had two bathrooms (this is the same for all the properties on Zeus) and I am not sure where this confusion arose as I have never advertised as such? I am delighted to know that you had a lovely time at Zeus Gardens though and enjoyed its wonderful location in Cyprus.

Nearest Airport
Paphos 15 minutes drive
Car: not necessary

Zeus is ideally situated in Kato Paphos (the area of Paphos nearest the harbour and sea) and is walkable to the beach, seafront, harbour, restaurants, bars, cafes, water park and bus stops so a car really isn't necessary unless wanting to explore further afield.

Cyprus has some lovely beaches:

Paphos beach (blue flag) is sandy and around a 10-15 minute level stroll from Zeus Gardens. There are watersports available and a beautiful path which leads all around from the harbour right round to the stretch of bays and inlets with lovely sandy coves and beaches, grassy areas, hotels and bars.

Lighthouse beach (a short bus ride/5 minute drive or 30 minute walk) is beautiful and sandy.

Coral Bay is a large, lovely sandy beach around 10 minutes drive along the coast. There is a regular bus service.

Other nearby beaches but drivable are Polis, Latchi and Pissouri.

There are plenty of places to visit in Cyprus and Paphos itself is steeped in history and culture - so much so that UNESCO decided to just add Paphos, as a whole, to its World Cultural Heritage List.

Trips to Limassol, Larnaca, Polis, Latchi, Polis, Pissouri, Aphrodite's Baths, Petra Tou Romious, the Tombs of the Kings, Troodos and many more are all well worth doing if you feel like exploring.

Apart from Kato Pahos itself there are shops and a taverna just round the corner and restaurants and bars all the way down to the seafront. There are lots of beautiful street cafes all along the front and harbour as well as many acclaimed restaurants.

Paphos old town and market are a short bus ride or 20 minute walk.

A vast number of excursions are possible from Paphos - from snorkelling trips on glass bottom boats to mini cruises to the Pyramids in Egypt and everything in between! We particularly like the quad bikes, go karting, bird park, fishing trips, the wonderful water park (free courtesy bus)...etc etc!
