About Marina

We are a "youngish" couple who built a lovely home

that we cannot live in unfortunately. Thus decided to

give other people the opportunity to do so. I'm

Marina, short, brown hair, brown eyes. My husband is

tall, slightly overweight, grey hair, brown eyes.

We have three children, (that are starting to drive us

slightly insane) but we love them anyway. I think its

important to mention that we are easy going and do not fuss over little things.

Why Marina chose Kathikas

We decided to build the property in Kathikas

because we thought it to be a good investment at the

time. We love the village life style, the locals and of course the country side. We actually stay at the villa

when we have no bookings during the winter months.

My husband loves mushroom hunting, and working in his

vineyards. Unfortunately producing grapes is not very profitable thus we have a restaurant in the busy tourist area of Kato Paphos.(making it impossible to live up in the village) Its a place where one can really relax.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Marina is a house where one can have privacy without been in the middle of no where! It is entirely

enclosed. The swimming pool is private. Everything in Kathikas is in walking distance. The local taverns, the coffee shops, the pub, the local bank. The villa is not situated near any main roads, thus been dangerous for young children, and noisy. The Local church is also very close to the villa all visitors are welcome. In April during our easter time, we have midnight mass which is very interesting to many tourists. August is also a lovely month to visit Kathikas, the local festival takes place round the middle of August where there are traditional dancing, food and of course wine.

Fantastic! Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beautiful Villa Marina for two weeks this summer. The villa has everything you need for a relaxing carefree holiday. The beautifully cared for garden made the perfect space to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of Kathikas.

Marina made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The games room was great! Cold beers on tap from the fridge allowed us to spend all day outside - only venturing inside to make lunch in the well equipped kitchen. The large villa can accommodate either one large family or two or three smaller ones. It's our (big) secret LOVE IT!

Exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in villa Marina in August , it was exactly what we wanted .spacious clean and the pool was beautiful .

It had everything we needed.if we had any questions ,which were few Marina answered them very quickly.

This was the sixth time that we have stayed in Cyprus and it was definitely the most relaxing.it was stress free from beginning to end .

Kathikas is a beautiful village with a small shop,bar and a few restaurants within 5mins walk . Everyone we met were friendly and helpful.

There isn't anything negative I can say , and we will be staying in villa Marina again, very soon I hope.

A big THANKYOU John ,Hazel ,Ella and Maddie Verden

Lovely family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing holiday at villa marina.

It was like a home from home everything we needed was there.

On arrival the villa was clean with all the essentials needed to avoid us needing to find a supermarket straight away.

We had planned on lots of sight seeing but our children, aged 16, 11 & 10 just wanted to play in the pool or have a game of table tennis.

Highly recommend the local village tavernas especially Imogen's, added bonus is it's walking distance so you can sample the local wines.

Would also recommend the owners restaurant The Moorings, not walking distance but worth the journey, fantastic food & a menu that means everyone will find something they like; also brill place if you have younger children as there is a play area, great idea.

We had such a lovely time we are hoping to return next summer

Great place 5*!!

  • 5 of 5

Great spacious house,owners are genuine kind people willing to help with anything needed, also the weather in Kathikas is so much better then downtown Paphos due to the altitude that was a really pleasant surprise!! We were 5adults and 2 kids and the house was still more than comfortable,and of course clean and comfortable, all the furniture is nice : the sofas,the beds etc

I recommend this place to anyone, 5* !!

Villa Marina

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five spent three days at Villa Marina, and had a great time. The villa, on three floors, is spacious, comfortable and extremely well-equipped. It was spotlessly clean on our arrival. Each of our three teenagers was thrilled to have a large bedroom to him/herself, plus a deluxe shared bathroom. Our master bedroom with its en suite shower room was perfect. The weather in April was too cold to use the pool, but it looked extremely inviting! We enjoyed sitting in the sun on the various balconies. The washing machine was very useful, and enabled us to travel light! And next to the washing machine (at ground level) was the pool table and ping pong table, which the kids loved!

Marina and Panicos stocked the villa with essential foodstuffs (tea, coffee, milk, eggs, etc.) before we arrived, which was greatly appreciated. In fact, Marina and Panicos couldn't have been more helpful, and were always friendly and attentive: first, all preliminary communications with Marina by e-mail were completely satisfactory -- no question (and I had a lot!) went unanswered. Then, when we arrived, and felt chilly in the evening (the house was still a bit cold from the winter) Marina lit a log fire for us (the central heating panel left us all baffled!) and Panicos came the next morning to switch on and regulate the heating. We were helped, too, by Panicos' nice aunt next door, which was very convenient!

Kathikas itself is very pleasant, and has a wealth of good restaurants to choose from (I believe there are six!). We ate at Imogen's Tavern and Yiannis' Tavern, both of which had excellent food and warm and friendly service. We told Yiannis that we loved the olives and he presented us with some when we got up to leave. Like Marina and Panicos -- indeed, like 99% of the people we encounted in Cyprus -- he was charming, open and generous. We also went to Marina and Panicos' restaurant on the Paphos waterfront, The Moorings, and had a very pleasant meal, with Panicos determined that everything should be just right -- recommended!

Kathikas was a good base for exploring western Cyprus: we explored the Avakas Gorge, visited Paphos and Latchi, and had a great day walking in the Akamas peninsula, which is glorious. Many of the nearby villages have charming old centres, and pretty churches. That said, I can imagine lazy summer days spent by and in the pool, with no need to leave the village!

In summary, we highly recommend Villa Marina, and its exceptionally nice owners!

Special interest holidays:

Kathikas been a manily farming village, harvest grapes during the month of September. The locals always welcome a helping hand and anyone is welcome. The owners will arrange such outings. The owner has his own olive orchards which he picks during the month of October and here also arrangements can be made for some olive picking. Sounds like fun but it is also hard work!!


The nearest beaches are the famous Coral Bay which is 15 minutes from Kathikas its a small tourist village, where one can enjoy the warm mediterranean sea. There are a number of restaurants and pubs which provide economical snacks and meals. The other beach is in the Polis area, Latsi its about 20 minutes from Kathikas, a small fishing village, where one can have a refreshing swim and a delicious fish meze.


Nearest Airport: Paphos International at 25 km

Nearest Ferry: Limassol at 85 km

A hired car is recommended although there is a taxi service.


Kathikas is in a good location its only 15 -20 minutes drive either to Paphos or Polis. In Paphos, there are a number of places worth visiting; The Tombs of the Kings, Mosaics, traditional museums. Polis has the Aphrodite Baths and many nature trails worth walking. The island has long been of great strategic importance and boasts the legacy of many of its occupying empires, fortifications built by the crusaders still stand.

Further Details:

Kathikas has a selection of taverns, on can sample the traditional fresh homemade foods. Also there is a pub which features all the local football matches. There are a couple of coffee shops, where one can get to play some back gammon with the locals. There are two supermarkets and a bank. The main attraction would be the two wineries where visitors are welcome to sample there choicest wines. For those who prefer nature one can walk the nature trails, watch the birds and lizards. There is also some stunning scenery which one a photograph.
