About Rutger Kriek

I am 50 years old Dutch citizen. I was born and raised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I have two sisters and one brother. My father was a famous knee surgeon and my mother had her own practice as attorney at law.

I am tax lawyer by profession. 12 years ago I relocated with my family to Nicosia in Cyprus, where I was offered a job with a financial services company. In September 2012 I set up my own fiduciary services company called Equation Corporate Services ( I am hapilly married, I am a real family man, and I have three wonderful children in the ages of 6, 11 and 13.

Rutger Kriek purchased this villa in 2009

Why Rutger Kriek chose Emba

The reason for buying this property was that we wanted to add a 'coastal dimension' to our life in Cyprus. Nicosia is a pleasant place to live, but what is lacking is the sea and this is what we find every time we visit our house in Emba. From convenience and distance point of view it would have made more sense to buy a house in Larnaca, Limassol or Agia Napa as these cities are closer to Nicosia, but to us the Paphos area is the most beautiful area in Cyprus, due to its attractive coast line including Coral Bay beach, which is very close to our house in Emba, the Akamas peninsula and its magnificent hinterland in general. It is an extra drive but it is more than worth it. The house is situated on a hill 200 metres above sea level and this offer extra cooling during the summer.

What makes this villa unique

What I like about the house is its peaceful ambiance combined with its green surroundings. Yet it is close to vibrant tourist centres such as Pafos harbour and Coral Bay.

Look around you and all you see is green, hardly any concrete (at least not such that it dominates the scenery) !

The stress falls immediately off my shoulders when entering the house. At the same time all the facilities are available to enjoy the required luxury. This includes satellite television, free WIFI, air-conditioning in all rooms, barbecue, parking space for 2 cars, two large bathrooms, one of which has a shower and the other a shower and bath, a swimming pool, a balcony, a dining table inside and outside, cooking facilities, BBQ, three bedrooms offering 7 places to sleep etc. The house is also very spaci

2 week PERFECT honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Cyprus and we couldnt have asked for more. The location of this villa was ideal and we quickly realised how glad we were to be staying in the quiet little village of Emba rather than the bustling city of Paphos.

A hire car is essential and we used Akis and Maria (the car is on the board in the kitchen). We thought we would have a holiday of walking but it was just too hot. Also, there is a bus from Emba to Paphos but it is only every few hours.

Great places to visit was the zoo (20 minutes drive), Coral Bay (15 minutes), Aphrodites Rock brewery (25 minutes), Tomb of the Kings (10 minutes max) and Paphos harbour (10 minutes).

The food is amazing everywhere and really decent prices.

Getting back to the villa though, it had absolutely everything you could need. The air conditioning is a blessing, the kitchen is well stocked and the pool was the main fun part! We didnt go to a beach as they were always quite busy whereas the pool is all yours!

We already miss being there and we even miss the cute little gecko's!

Thank you so much Rutger for being responsive and extremely helpful too throughout the booking. Will definitely be back and recommend to all!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed in the villa - 3 of us for 2 weeks and a fourth joined us for second week.

Superb place - very clean, tidy and well maintained. Air conditioned. Quiet area.

Plenty of bedwear, towels, etc supplied.

All kitchen requirements you could ever want or need, washing machine, plenty of plates, tons of cutlery .... whatever you have at home you'll find it here I should think! Large dining table - although never actually used by us as we ate poolside

Sun on the front - and pool - all day.

Lots of seats/loungers in the garden with lilos and other inflateables for pool use.

Sea view from front bedrooms.

Highly recommended if looking for accomodation in the area for a stay!

A*** rated by us!

Excellent clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Cyprus and I must say we where impressed the villa was lovely clean and in a peaceful location . We got lost on the way from the airport but the owner was only a phone call away and very very helpful he directed us to the door in minutes.

A car is essential but bars and restaurants only short drive away .

The pool was great we have 2 children aged 10 and 11 and they spent days and evenings swimming and playing.

Thanks for a wonderful stay and hopefully we can return again.

2nd stay

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back in UK after another very enjoyable holiday in this delightful villa, my wife and myself wanted a very tranquil relaxing holiday and was just the ticket, although a short walk to the village or a short drive there are very nice bars/restaurants, as well as shops and supermarkets.

Villa very clean, lots of room, even a water cooler which is very welcome.

Will definitely be back. Neighbours very friendly and helpful for any problems.

Less than ten minutes drive from Coral Bay beach. Coral Bay is ideal for families in search of safe swimming and soft sand. It offers lots of watersports and family-friendly activities. There are plenty of eating places, sunbeds and parasols, plus inflatables, parascending, diving and water skiing. Even at height of season it is possible to walk beyond the sunbeds and find uncluttered sand and relative peace. There are many bars and restaurants on the beach and in the resort.


Twenty minutes drive from Paphos Airport. Car hire is recommended.


Eight kilometres from Coral Bay, 3 kilometres from Tala, 3 kilometres from Paphos.

Further Details:

The fact that a high percentage of people who rented the house in the past come back for new bookings attests to its high level of attraction. All amenities, including one of the best and largest supermarkets in the area, the beautiful beach of Coral Bay and the vibrant city centre of pafos and its ancient harbour, are within small distance (five to ten minutes away). Places like Kissonerga, with a number of cosy English pubs where you can enjoy live coverage of all important English and international sport matches, and Tala, with a beautiful village square and some of the best restaurants in the area, are even within closer reach. The famous Neophytous monastery is 15 minutes by car. The famous Adonis waterfalls are half an hour away by car.
