About Sue

We holidayed in Cyprus for many years, loved it, so decided to buy our dream holiday home in 2005.

We try and get over there as much as we can, we always find different things to see and do. We both work full time so its great to have Cyprus to look forward too!

Our son was young when bought the villa so we have had some great times at the water parks, beaches, snorkelling, and the obligatory boat trips. It was great not having to go out for dinner every night and just fire up the BBQ.

The Cypriots are great with kids, and welcome them into all restaurants, he did very well on the free Ice Cream!

Now he is older the Xbox Den and the pool are his favourite domain. He goes into Ayia Napa with his friends, and gets the late bus back so great no late night/ early morning pick ups for us!

Sue purchased this villa in 2005

Why Sue chose Famagusta region

We viewed a number of developments, but we felt that they were just large estates with all the villas looking the same and no individuality,

When we saw Atlantis Villa we fell in love with the location, breath taking sea views and great aspect, as it was at the bottom of a private cul-de-sac with just 9 Villas, ours being at the very bottom over looking the sea.

It was a family build, Nicos had 4 girls who all needed a house! So he built 9 houses, the girls were given one each and he sold the other 5 to pay for them. The reason why the Villa is larger than a normal holiday villa is they were all built to the same size and specification, as they are permanent homes for the daughters. They are now married and have children.

We did get the largest plot and of course the best sea views!

What makes this villa unique

The views are the best feature, there are sea views from all the rooms, downstairs and upstairs when you look out of the landing window its as if you are on a ship, all you can see is the turquoise Mediterranean!

The outside space is large, so there is plenty of sunbathing space, even with all the loungers, sofas, hammock and massive daybed, and outside dining table and chairs it is still not cramped.

The living area is very spacious, we did not want to put another bedroom downstairs as we wanted to keep the open plan feel, we often have two families staying at the villa as a group and they all say how nice it is to have their own space

The teenagers and kids love the den upstairs they can watch movies or play the Xbox or just chill and not have to put up with the parents!

The location is great, there are many bars and restaurants within walking distance. There is a regular bus service that is 1.50 euro if you dont want to drive. There is direct access to the nice sandy shallow beach. This has been designated a a conservation area so great for snorkling and spotting fish and clear blue sea to swim in.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay in Atlantis Villa. We have been to Cyprus many times but this was our first visit for six years, it was lovely to be back. We always used to stay in hotels but did stay in a villa last time we were there and found it much more relaxing. Your villa is in a beautiful position with amazing views. It is also so quiet and not overlooked like so many villas advertised. It was very well equipped, I don't like to do much cooking while on holiday but anthing you could ask for was there. An amazing selection of plates glasses etc. There was plenty to see on the tv with dvds and the media player. The washing machine was useful for washing swimwear and we also washed the beach towels a couple of times too.

The bedrooms were all lovely and the beds really comfortable.



We particularly liked the pool and patio area, this was larger than most villas and as I mentioned before hardly overlooked at all. We were visitied a few times by Ginger the lovely dog from next door! He is so friendly. There are plenty of sunbeds and chairs to relax in, Iwan especially liked the rockers!

We ate out several times in Pernera, our favourite restaurant being Kalamies, their seabass is possibly the best I have had. We also went into Ayia Napa several times as there are places there we have been going to for years. It was nice to have a bar within walking distance and we went a few times on our way back from eating out. It was also a good place to watch the rugby! Our daughter and her boyfriend spent more time there than we did!

We would definately be interested in a return viait to Atlantis when we next go to Cyprus either next year or the year after. The only thing we found that was a little difficult was having just the one key as we didn't always all go out and come back at the same time. I wondered if it would be possible to have a second key, not necessarily with another keyfob, then if the girls and their partners were out later than us they could use the spare key to get in when they came back.

We had a great time and were sorry to leave but hope to return

Response from Sue

Hi Sharon thank you so much for our review, we have taken on board your comments about the one key and have installed a key safe outside so that you can leave the key for other family members to use.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: We have tried to make it home from home so the villa is equipped with everything you could wish for, lots of crockery for entertaining, (you dont have to wait for the dishwasher to finish so you have enough plates)! There are Coffee peculators fondu set, sandwich makers, even a George Formby grill doesn't everyone have one! Oh and a frappé machine for those iced coffees and milkshakes or cocktails. There is Picnic stuff, cool bags and brollies for those days on the beach. Inflatables and toys for the pool. Hair-dryers and TVs with DVD players in all of the bedrooms of course! Outside: There is just the watermelon field between you and the sea! The private pool has a shallow end and steps down to it so great for little ones, it is illuminated in the evening so you can have a midnight dip. The Sun Terrace is very large, there is a traditional BBQ and also a large Gas BBQ area with a sink for prep-ping. A large glass table and chairs for that alfresco dining. A brolly to keep off the sun. There is ample sunbathing, 6 loungers, a massive bamboo day bed, a swing seat. Outdoor comfy sofas and chairs, for you to have a relax and a glass of wine in the evening and take in the sunset over the med. There are inflatables and toys for the kids to have some fun the pool. Plenty of parking and the drive is gated to keep little ones in. We are at the bottom of the cul de sac so no worries about passing traffic, with the exception of the daily visit from the ice cream van, its very peaceful location. Utility Room: The villa has a washing machine, an iron and ironing board, pegs and washing line. We always supply dishwasher tablets,washing powder and cleaning materials so you dont have to go and purchase washing up liquid and a sponge on day one! Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen are provided and on two week stays our team will clean the villa and change the sheets and towels. Beach towels are provided to give you that extra room in your suite case. The pool is cleaned three times per week. Other: The Den upstairs has a double sofa bed, Xbox and flat screen 32inch TV. It has air-conditioning and can be closed off for privacy. Great for kids and bigger kids! Its a big hit with our younger guests, who can play the Xbox horizontally in bed!

Great place to stay, lovely views and so peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Very little light pollution at the villa and so you can see all the stars at night (seen 3 shooting stars). Shops within 5 to 10 mins walk. I didn't drive while there but handy bus at the top of the road running every 20 mins or so to near by Pernera or Protaras a bit further on or take the bus in the opposite direction to Ayia Napa. The walk along the coast from the villa to Pernera is lovely though (did it several times).

Owner's Response: Hi Andy Im so pleased you managed to see 3 shooting stars, and that you took advantage of the new coastal path to Pennera. I must agree with you it is such a nice walk, much better than using the road. Look forward to welcoming you back anytime. Kind Regards Sue

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

I booked the villa as we were attending a wedding at the nearby Golden Coast Hotel. Between booking and attending, I fell pregnant and therefore didn't attend myself as we had a newborn. However, the owner Sue was an absolute pleasure to deal with, providing me with detailed information for our booking and answering all my queries no matter how small! My friends said the villa was amazing and only a 15min walk to the hotel for the wedding. We hope to stay in the future as a family :)

WONDERFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all other reviews. This villa is wonderful from start to finish. It is like a home away from home. Well equipped for everything from plates to wi-fi access and all things in between. My husband, myself and 3 teenage children stayed here recently. We like to have a quiet place to retreat to each day after a lovely day staying by the pool or at either of the two beaches mentioned. There is a bus service close by with can take you into both Pernera or Protaras for eating out in the evening (which we like to do).

Sue really helped in every way from the moment I made an initial enquiry, She telephoned me to speak to me in person and told me lots of infomation. They advised about flight operators, airport transfers and car rental. Everything they advised of worked out fine and we had no problem with anything.

From the information provided in the villa we booked a night at a lovely B&B in Troodos instead of travelling back to the villa one night.

Sue - thank you for everything I have been talking to family and friends and really do hope to return to the villa in the future.

Amazing Atlantis

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner were getting married in Cyprus and looked at a lot of villas, we particularly liked the look of this villa but looking at the dates, sadly were already booked,i sent an enquiry on the off-chance it may be cancelled, i received a phone call from the owner we chatted for quite a while and she was actually due to stay on the dates,but would cancel their stay so we could go instead which was lovely, Sue was very helpful and went above and beyond,it was like speaking to someone you have known for years.

It's obvious the owners are proud of their home and rightly so.

Over the months communication was excellent, Sue helped recommending restaurants for wedding meal, searched for car rentals for my son, this was above and beyond what you would expect and much appreciated.

Upon arrival villa was spotless,everything as described and a great welcome pack, only something we had twice in renting villas.

Good location between pernera and kapparis (Kennedy avenue) a slow walk will take around 25 mins up to the pig n whistle.

Villa definitely the best we stayed in, everything has been thought of,plenty of kitchen items,cool bags and blocks for picnics, parasols to take beach,beach towels, the watercooler was a great bonus.

Plenty of pool toys, arm bands etc for little ones, snorkels, and a pump inflate them.

Villa very spacious inside and out with fantastic views, ocean views from every room and the sunrise on balcony is amazing.we only used air con before bed as having the doors open in the day let's in a lovely breeze, it can get quite windy late afternoon and a bit of debris and dust blows around but this is expected being close to fields and the sea.

Pool cleaned a few times a week, unlimited wifi, English TV, stereo /ipod dock,cds films box sets on all tvs upstairs

Everything you could need has been covered Inc travel cot and highchair for toddlers.

We had a perfect stay, the only bad part was leaving, you have to stay in this villa to appreciate the hard work that's been put in, you won't be disappointed. Please look out for the resident stray one eye, lovely little kitty, i offered to feed her for the owner, having cats myself, I miss her.

A Wonderful Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family and myself 3 Adult and 2 children (11/12) spent an amazing week at the Villa which is well located to access other areas and the local beach. It sits proudly at the end of a private cul-de-sac and has the most amazing see views a real peaceful retreat. We were not disappointed the Villa was spacious, well maintained and clean. The facilities provided everything you need for an enjoyable and relaxed stay, "home from home" When we arrived (which was late) there was a welcome pack of staples which we very much appreciated.

The swimming pool provided so much fun for the family and their was an array of inflatables. There is plenty of sun beds and a plethora of garden furniture which we used for our Al Fresco dining, great atmosphere in the evening with the little lights on.

There is great internet access and an Xbox which my 12 your old grandson enjoyed at times.

We used the local bus 6 euros one way and this facilitated us going to Pennera, Protarus and Paralimini, however we did use local taxis at time which varied between 8-12 Euros one way depending on time and it is good to agree a price before you embark on your journey.

The restraunt a short walk from the villa the Country House Pub was closed the week we were there but there are so many other choices that it was not a problem. The local supermarket sells most things.

The beach a short walk away is a Sandy Cove beautiful and pretty with a couple of restraunts on the costal path.

We enjoyed our trip on the Famous Red Bus to Famagusta and Varosha, this represented good value and the hosts Alan and Clive were knowlegable and fun. We also attended the Flower Festival in Protarus which had a real carnival feel.

There is lots of information at the Villa which helps to orientate you to the area and is full of suggestions from other guests on activities, local restraunts etc.

The team who look after the villa are on hand if you have any problems or you need any help. We had neither but reassuring to know there is someone you can contact.

Last but not least - The Customer Service and Booking Process - I cannot speak highly enough of both Sue and Lance who made everything so easy. I had many questions before departure and all were answered fully. Sue even found me a hairdresser (Marion) who came to the villa to style my hair for a wedding I was attending. Both Sue and Lance went above and beyond what would be expected from a holiday booking and we look forward to a return stay.
