About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom child friendly villa with pool in tranquil but convenient location close to airport, beaches, restaurants and attractions for all

Aphrodite's Views has been enjoyed by guests from all over the world. Ideal for families, groups and all year round breaks. Our detached, welcoming villa is nestled within secluded well established gardens on a large corner plot, bursting with blooming tropical trees and flowering shrubs. On the corner of a quiet road in a friendly neighbourhood within Venus Rock Golf resort (formerly Secret Valley). Conveniently located within a 15 minute drive from Paphos air port and close to beaches, attractions to interest all, traditional villages, wine trail, shops, bars and restaurants. The large historic town of Limassol with it's blend of modern and new and the bustling town of Paphos with it's colourful harbour are within easy reach.

Park up in the the private 3 car drive, shaded by the car port, close the gate and simply relax, your holiday starts now.

Dine alfresco on the shaded terrace straight from the traditionally Cypriot built bbq, there's usually coals tucked away, overlooking the 8m x 5m pool. The forever green astro grass lawn is perfect for playing or relaxing on. There's plenty of loungers and a sun umbrella. Help yourself to fruit straight from one of the trees in our fruit garden. There is nothing like enjoying a juicy orange or golden peach you have just picked yourself. Enhance your culinary delights with some rosemary or mint.

Inside, if you want a break from the sunshine, enjoy one of the comfortable sofas in the lounge, while watching your favourite film or catching up with the news or emails. There is also a wide selection of DVD's and books if you fancy an evening in.

Enjoy a family meal at the inside dining table and chairs in the dining area while looking out onto the glistening pool, a real feature when lit up at night.

The kitchen is well equipped with a large fridge freezer, hob, oven, micro wave, dishwasher and washing machine and wide choice of apparatus to accommodate your culinary desires.

There is also an iron and ironing board to give your clothes a quick press, they soon dry on the line outside.

Downstairs is of open plan design, bright, spacious and airy with easy access to the pool and garden, to help keep you cool although the villa is air conditioned throughout.

There is downstairs wc.

A tiled stair case leads up to 3 double sized bedrooms all air conditioned with fully fitted wardrobes giving you plenty of space to hang your holiday clothes.

The master bedroom with large double bed and fitted wardrobes has a balcony with comfy sofa and table overlooking the garden and pool.

Bedroom 2 again has a large double bed and is comfortably furnished in relaxing shades of cream and yellow. Bedroom 3 has 2 large single beds and the large fitted wardrobes provide plenty of storage for clothes and toys. All bedrooms enjoy sea and or country side views.

We have made our personally owned villa available for others to enjoy for more than 5 years now. From this experience we have tried to make our villa 'a home from home' for our guests and provide what they need to enjoy the villa, to make happy memories and to return.

A high chair, travel cot and stair gate are complementary if required. As well as WIFI, air conditioning, mid stay clean in a 2 week stay, all towels and linens for use inside the villa, use of Ipod docking station, welcome pack. Meet and greet. Assistance if required during your stay is provided for our guests - all free of charge.

I can advise on flights, airport transfer and car rental and would be pleased to suggest an itinerary of places to visit and where to eat.

"Just to say that we had a splendid time last week. The Villa was everything we hoped it would be and more....we absolutely loved it!

And Maria?!?! What a find that was! She really took good care of us, we went to see her on our last day and she packed us up with a supper to take to the airport too!

Thank you so much for everything....if you need any testimonials writing on any websites or similar, just send me a link & it will be done, no worries!

Thanks again...! x"

Is just one of many of my reviews that I take great pleasure in receiving.

Come and see for yourself : )

About Cheryl Hann

I lived in Cyprus with my family for 8 years. We bought this villa as a place to escape from work and to relax in.

It's also only a short drive from the air port.

We spend most of our time in the garden and pool and enjoy doing lots of bbq's.

My husband also enjoys a game of golf and the Secret valley course is a challenge but with beautiful views. It is peaceful and tranquil yet conveniently located. There are some excellent restaurants in Kouklia and Pissouri close by. I love walking the nature trails in front of Aphrodites Rock the coastline is stunning.

Cheryl Hann purchased this villa in 2008

Why Cheryl Hann chose Paphos & Suburbs

We fell in love with this villa because of the beautiful location and the peace and tranquility of Secret Valley. It is an ideal place to enjoy time with family yet conveniently located close to the airport and motorway if you wish to go and explore.

What makes this villa unique

Our garden is where we spend most of our time. There are an abundance of flowering tropical plants and trees so you are not overlooked when swimming in the pool or enjoying a bbq.

The villa is spacious, light and airy and the kitchen is fully equipped

Winter Sun!

  • 5 of 5

With very welcome drinks & basic groceries awaiting our arrival, this villa was everything we hoped it would be...and more! Spotlessly clean, spacious and well-appointed, we fell into bed after a long, late night flight happy, very happy indeed! A hire car is a must and no big deal as local hire prices are very competitive. Maria's Taverna in the next village (5 mins drive) has the best local food & Maria herself is generosity personified. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful villa but with timers on aircondition

  • 3 of 5

The house was beautiful but they were timers on ac. We had to wake up every two hours to turn it on. We contacted the owner and told us that the cost to turn off and on again the timers is 70€ and that we have to pay the half. In cyprus and August the sleep with ac is a must. Also we didn t know that! Though we had a late check out with no extra cost

Owner's Response: Hi Areti Thank you for reviewing our villa. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed the villa and garden. It is the first time that any guest has mentioned the air conditioning being on timers. Unfortunately it was very difficult in August to find anyone to remove them for your stay however we have taken your comments onboard. I must say, however, how sad I was to hear from our villa manager about the poor condition you left the villa in. This incurred additional cleaning costs to make the villa ready for our next guests.

Villa was ideally located and offered a large secluded garden with good sized swimming pool.

Spacious interior, great for relaxing with a glass of the local beer or wine after a busy day out and about!

We received good communication and service

both prior to and during our stay.

Main town Paphos only a short drive away offers numerous attractions such as Tombs of the Kings and the Archaeological Site, as well as an excellent Zoo (situated just past Coral Bay) and Waterpark. And, not forgetting the various sandy beaches and clear blue waters easily found along the coastline.

Would highly recommend Paphos as a holiday destination and this particular villa!

Fun for all

Enjoy a full day in Paphos Bird and Animal Park - the first licensed zoo in Cyprus. From elephants, tigers and lions to an amazing reptile house all in animal friendly enclosures. The roller skating, basket ball playing parrots are enthral young and old and marvel at the great white owl as it swoops across just inches from the top of your head.

Make a splash in Paphos or Limassol water parks - from the hair raising Cobra slide to the gentle doughnut river ride.

Don't go too crazy from the challenging crazy golf courses dotted throughout Paphos.

Perhaps you would like to explore the terrain by quad bike or beach buggy you see and experience so much more.

Take up the wine trail and as it weaves it way through traditional villages that still make lace and produce their own honey and olive oil. Many wine caves line the road to Mount Olympus - don't stop and sample too many delicious local produced wines. Their warm and friendly hospitality is difficult to leave.

Platres nestled near the top of Troodos is a charming larger village that boasts a chocolate shop too delicious to miss. Sample the chocolatier's tempting wares from molten liquid chocolate to adventurous squares made with Royal Jelly. All fillings are locally sourced. During January to March the mountain becomes a Winter wonderland and comes alive with ski runs for beginners to experts. The village steams with hot nut stands along with your socks drying on an old burner as take your fill of pork or chicken souvlaki straight from the grill. If you start early you can still catch the afternoon sun before returning to the villa.
