About the property

Villa in Ayia Thekla, Nr. Ayia Napa, Paralimni, South Cyprus - Peaceful Location, 7 Minutes Walk To The Sandy Ayia Thekla Beach, 3 Minutes Walk To The Supermarket

Villa Marina was built with love in 2010 and since then has been our favourite getaway. It is located in a beautiful and peaceful village of Ayia Thekla and is surrounded by a nice garden with a lawn. The illuminated pool is 3*7 m with a cascading water fountain to massage your back and to provide extra fun for the kids. The villa is fully equipped with all mod cons you might need for your comfortable stay. All rooms are fully air-conditioned. The villa is suitable for big families and wedding parties.

About Maria Kuravleva

Hello! My name is Maria, thank you for your interest in our villa. In 2008 I first visited Cyprus with my family. It was the first time we altogether felt so good and healthy that we started to look for a holiday villa in Cyprus of our own. It is great to get away from it all especially when you live in a big crowded city.

Maria Kuravleva purchased this villa in 2010

Why Maria Kuravleva chose Sotira

We love the area mostly because it is not part of a holiday complex as such - and it has a beautiful little swimming place just 20 seconds away to catch an early morning swim. We have a supermarket which has a wide range of goods, and a couple of local bars. And if you have a car you can explore the whole beautiful island.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is just perfect for your holidays as it has everything you might need for a comfortable stay. And the sea, and the view! You have to see it with your own eyes!

We built and furnished the villa with the utmost care so that it would be cosy and comfortable for ourselves. We are sure you`ll enjoy it as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for our most comfortable and care-free holiday ever! The villa has just been renovated and is very clean. Beds are comfortable to sleep. The house is very well furnished so you have everything at hand.

The location is ideal. We loved our evening strolls along the sea shore. There is a well stocked supermarket and a restaurant in 3-minutes walk distance. So we just rented the car for some days when we wanted to travel across the island. Thanks for the booklets about the island and its places of interest! We made a very interesting journey to Northern Cyprus!

I would definitely recommend this villa to anybody!

Our best holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the warm welcome and I must say we had the best holiday ever. The villa is very clean with classic furniture and we were provided with everything, literally everything we needed to feel like at home. The villa is situated in a quiet village, there's a small supermarket and a bar in 3 minutes walk. We bathed in the sea in front of the villa. The beach is rocky, but we were prepared and had our water shoes. A public sandy beach is quite close however, but we wanted privacy. Many thanks to Sylke for the amazing diving experience! You made our teenagers (and us too))) very happy! Would recommend this place to anybody!

Maria's villa is beautiful, very clean & well laid out for our large family, we enjoyed the sea views & the pool very much & will be returning for sure. My only comments Would be if it was possible that the house was cleaned when the beds were changed weekly that Wld be lovely & if the sun lounger had padded covers like the villa next door as it would make it nicer to relax. But they are only very small things because all in all we had a fabulous time. Thank you so much xx

Wonderful stay in Villa Marina

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful with excellent location! The view of the blue sea is amazing. The fresh air from the sea cools down the heat and it feels great. Property is in very good condition and we had everything we needed. The kids really loved that we had our own private pool and big garden. We will definitely book the same house again, but we'll try autumn next time! See you and thank you!))

Car: recommended


Our villa is situated about 1 minute walk from a perfect tiny cove for an early morning bathe, or 7 minutes walk from Ayia Thekla Beach, with many Blue Flag beaches such as Nissi and Macronissos a short drive away. Water World Themed Park is just down the road.

If you fancy diving, Sylke who looks after our house, is a qualified diving instructor - you will be in safe hands! There are regular buses to Ayia Napa and all the beaches in between - but this is also a great area for cycling.


Larnaca airport is 45 minutes by the nearby motorway (Paphos 2 hours). Information on transfers or car hire can be provided for you. We can recommend a great taxi service if you prefer to stay put and just go out in the evenings.


There is a snack bar with large screen satellite TV and restaurant within 5 minutes walk, and 2 great fish tavernas at Potamos within 5 minutes drive. There's also a fantastic traditional taverna in Sotira 10 min drive. Restaurants in Ayia Napa include Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Fijian, Scandinavian and Italian plus some great Cypriot tavernas! We are lucky to have a well stocked small supermarket within 3 minutes walk. There are 3 large supermarkets at Paralimni, approx 15 minutes drive.

Further Details:

Explore further: Larnaca has a lovely seafront, good museums (40 mins) and good shopping. Nicosia is the capital of Cyprus with its cosy Old Town, museums, restaurants. Nicosia also has great shopping! 60 minutes to the Troodos mountains and you find yourself in a beautiful forest area where you can go hiking, visit ancient monasteries and enjoy the unique nature.

Remember to visit the Turkish side of Cyprus as many beautiful sites are there. You can cross the border after Frenaros, a small village 15 minutes drive from our villa. Don't forget to explore ancient Famagusta, the ruins of Salamis and the three Medieval Castles, fantastic Kerineya in the North and Nikosia, of course. Please look through the travel guides that can be found in the villa and plan your trip across the island!
