About Joanna Wood

We live in a beautiful rural location in Buckinghamshire with our three children; Niamh, Freya & Jack and cocker spaniel Molly.

We first visited Cyprus as a family back in 2009 and were taken with how beautiful, friendly and warm it is here !

We decided at the beginning of this year after our seventh visit that we should surely put down roots and let someone else enjoy the beauty of this island.

Joanna Wood purchased this villa in 2012

Why Joanna Wood chose Paphos & Suburbs

Aphrodite Hills is a beautiful resort catering for children, couples and families. The resort facilities are outstanding and our children never tire of what is on offer there.

Villa 'Ioannu' is a true hidden gem located on the exclusive eastern plateau. A split level villa which offers each guest privacy on every level. Nestled into a ravine location with undulating views of the ravine giving you a true sense of Cyprus.

It is wonderfully peaceful here and with only a 5 min drive to the village square we get to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the village resort but the privacy of the plateau.

What makes this villa unique

We particularly like that the villa is not overlooked and we feel that the style that we offer here would make most people feel that they were experiencing something special.

If there is anything that you would like to make your stay more comfortable than we would be happy to accommodate you if we can.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would love to hear your comments after your visit so if there is something that you felt would of made your stay better in anyway, then please let us know. But i am sure you will fall in love with this villa as much as we have.

..I want to let you know that we really enjoyed our time at your villa. The property itself is much prettier than on the pictures, and has a wonderful front and back garden.

The interior design itself is very nice and we really liked the design of the house, in the sense that each bedroom is on its own floor, and has its own bathroom, giving all guests privacy and comfort. As well, we were delighted to see that really any imaginable household item could be found, from pots, pans, bbq equipment, really everything (even a first aid kit!). The towels were really nice and soft, and the Savon de Marseille soap was a really nice touch as well. D.Dunic - nicosia

Incredible Villa

  • 5 of 5

The most fantastic holiday experience began even before embarking the plane, with the 5 star pre-stay service and information that we received from the owner, making everything as accessible and stress feee as possible. Upon arriving at the villa we were blown away by the space, furnishing and features of the villa - sheer luxury! We travelled as a large group with kids and the pool and outdoor furniture meant that we were able to spend each day lazing around the villa with everything at our fingertips! The villa itself is in great proximity to the resort 'square' where you can access shops, restaurants and spa/leisure facilities if you do want to venture out of the villa. Nothing was too much for the owners and I highly recommend a holiday here :)

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from staying at Villa Ioanna and really don't want to be writing this for two reasons - we are home and because then everyone will know how gorgeous this villa is and we won't be able to book again! From initial contact with Jo, through the booking process to our fantastic week away - everything was brilliant. Joanna's thoughtful touches provide an exceptional home-from-home. We can't speak highly enough of the service or the villa which pictures do not justice. Coupled with magnificent food in the Fig and Olice restaurant at the Sensatori, it is safe to say we have come home heavy in heart ( and weight!). One thing for certain - we will return. Thank you Jo for sharing your stunning second home.

Simply the best...........

  • 5 of 5

We have rented holiday villas in various countries for the past 20 years and from our experience Joanna's villa and the level of service was simply the best.

From the day we made our booking to arriving in Cyprus nothing was too much trouble. We received clear and precise directions for the 25 minute drive to the villa from Paphos airport and on arrival we found a generous welcome basket and Joanna true to her word during our holiday being available via email to answer any queries or questions.

The villa was very well appointed in every way possible with high quality equipment, plenty of outside furniture, a beautiful pool where you are not overlooked in well maintained gardens with distance sea views.

Most evenings we sat on the balcony watching the sun setting before going out to dinner at one of the five tavernas at the nearby village of Kouklia where the village square is closed off to cars in the evenings.

Without any hesitation we would recommend Joanna and her beautiful villa located on the Aphrodite Hills Resort and all the facilities this offers which we hope to visit again in the future.

Wow - just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a fabulous family holiday at Joanna’s beautiful Villa in Aphrodite Hills, about a 30-minute drive from Paphos. Planning the holiday was made so easy with Joanna’s support right from the start - suggesting flights; arranging car hire and helping us to settle in with a wonderful welcome basket of goodies!

The villa is gorgeous – better than the pictures - and was absolutely perfect for us to mark our son’s 30th birthday! The pool area is enormously relaxing and very private. Inside and outside is beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean.

Aphrodite Hills offers a wide range of activities – our group enjoyed the Segways, bikes, nature trails for jogging and long walks and the ladies very much enjoyed being pampered in the award winning spa! If you are a golf enthusiast then you must check it out as this can only be described as a wonderland – clearly a prime reason for many who holiday there.

The local villages all have something special to offer and eating out was super – so much choice and very cost effective! The local people are so friendly. Joanna made some wonderful recommendations and even booked for us in advance. We are now hooked on meze! Historically the area has so much to see; the coastline is stunning – something for all ages.

As first timers on a villa holiday abroad I cannot recommend a stay at Joanna's villa enough. There are doubtless many other places to choose from but what makes this holiday so good is that Joanna is at the end of the phone to help and advise you any time!

Thank you Joanna.

Beautiful Villa - exceptional service.

  • 5 of 5

This was a holiday booked by my daughter for my 70th birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect! The Villa is really beautiful...spacious, extremely well-equipped and furnished to an exceptional standard. Each bedroom is on a different level, with its own bathroom - perfect! We had a heated pool - bliss!! - not overlooked and surrounded by beautiful gardens and a very comfortably furnished patio. What more could we want?! Aphrodite Hills is a stunning complex with great food at the Village and Hotel. I had a luxurious Thai massage at the Spa. I would happily recommend Villa Ioannu to anyone and would definitely go back again myself. Joanna's service and attention to detail is second-to-none. A big THANK YOU Joanna.

The villa was outstanding, spacious and very comfortable. You only have neighbours on one side, but you are far enough away not to be aware of them. The pool isn't overlooked and one of the previous reviews was right, the photographs do not do the villa full justice. For us however what made it stand out was the service from Joanna. She was the first point of contact and as soon as you contacted her someone from maintenance and cleaning appeared at the door. She is to be commended for this. We would definitely return.
