Beautiful, peaceful Location

  • 5 of 5

This villa is located with a small group of 5 other villas. In a quiet area of Catalkoy. It has superb views to both the front and rear. From the front you can see the sea, and to the rear you have a wonderful mountain back drop.

At night the views from the roof top terrace are again superb. You can see the Ballapais Monastery and the Hilirion Castle, which are illuminated at night. An ideal place to have pre dinners drinks !

The pools is large and always clean. The pool guys came very regularly to top up and clean. Outside there is also a very good bar b q area with table and chairs near by.

In advance John and Liz, the owners were responsive and extremely helpful. Once we were there, their villa Manager Sally couldn't do enough to help. And was always available with good local knowledge.

If there was one very minor down side it was that the A/C units are on timers with a maximum time of 2 hours. This may not be a problem at other times of the year, but at the beginning of August we would have appreciated being able to keep the bedrooms cooler for a longer period during the night.

We have had many villa holidays in Cyprus and have to say that this villa rates very highly with some of the others we have stayed in. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sunset villa. We would certainly return at some stage.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvellous holiday at this villa.

Before even arriving at the villa the owners were extremely friendly, approachable and informative about everything we needed to know about the villa.

Upon arrival to the villa our initial observations were how immaculately clean and tidy it was and its very peaceful and beautiful location. The property manager (a very friendly lady greeted us and told us everything we needed to know and was just a phone call away for any other queries we had throughout our stay). The villa was fully equipped with everything we needed.

We would definitely go back!
