The entrance hall to the property brings you to a large open plan living/dining area with separate kitchen. The fully equipped kitchen has an extra door to the front of the villa with a small garden and delightful mature fruit trees. The entrance hall also features a useful guest cloakroom/w.c. From the living room there are shuttered patio doors giving easy access to the pool area surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens. There is a covered veranda stretching right across the rear of the villa with a dining table and chairs for 6 people and rattan furniture. Stairs take you to the first floor with 3 double bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and there is another double bedroom and a twin sharing a large family bathroom. The master bedroom and one of the other bedrooms also have access to a large stunning well furnished balcony which also stretches across the whole of rear of the villa with fantastic sea and mountain views.

In the living room there is a brand new state of the art 48 inch, curved screen Samsung smart TV giving both HD and 3D viewing (without glasses). There is broadband Internet access providing hundreds (literally) of TV channels, including all UK terrestrial and all Sky and Sky sports channels. In addition there is a unique movie channel showing movies newly released and showing in UK cinemas, kids TV and live UK and European sports channels including any game being broadcast live by Sky.

Other users can use their play stations, tablets and iPads simultaneously throughout the entire property and We are pleased to be able to say that this is FREE OF CHARGE and included in the rental price. There is a fair usage policy in terms of electricity and this depends on the time of year and length of stay. As an indication the price per week will include €15 of power and water with anything over and above that incurring a charge, your meter will be read after seven days (for two week bookings) so that you can gauge your electricity use. Unless you run the a/c 24/7 it is ulikely you will exceed this.

About Helen and Grahame

We are Grahame and Helen and we purchased our Villa in October 2015 as a second home so 2015 was our first season but so far we have had very good reviews.

We bought it mainly as a second home for use by family and friends rather than as a business having said that we have done everything possible to make it a memorable

holiday for our guests.

Helen and Grahame purchased this villa in 2014

Why Helen and Grahame chose Peyia

We both love Cyprus and have been many times. Grahame was based there twice with HM Forces and we both know the area well. Most people speak English and are very friendly, having looked extensively around really Paphos seemed the obvious choice.

What makes this villa unique

You will find ease of access to local shops, bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Coral Bay is a five minute drive away. Paphos itself with its new mall with international designer outlets and a multiplex cinema is about 15 minutes by taxi or you can use the excellent bus service which runs regularly and the bus stop is 2 minutes from the Villa.

Having said that the Villa quiet enough should you just wish to chill round the pool or have a BBQ.

This villa is fantastic and is even better than described. It has everything you could need and more.

We started booking villa's on holiday some years ago and having rented quite a few now we know what to look for. We want something that is within reasonable distance to shops, restaurants and close to the beach within being compelled to hire a car. We look for something that is spacious, clean, reasonably private and just as important something that is comfortable. This villa lived up to all those expectations and actually exceeded most of them. I can honestly say it is one of the best villa’s we have rented to date. What made it even more exceptional was the WIFI and television. The selection on the television is a lot more than detailed in the advertisement. It has sky but much much more also. Fantastic if you want to have a relaxing evening, barbecue at the pool followed by a couple of drinks and a good movie. Or if you’re a sporting fanatic watch one of the big football games, live, without having to go out to an overcrowded bar.

This villa is a must for anyone. Myself and my husband went on our own this year but I fully intend to go back next year with some of the family. It would comfortably hold 6 people. The village where it is located is really quaint and so friendly you really don’t need to go far afield at all but that’s also an option if you want to using the regular reliable bus service. The villa’s security is also excellent.

The owners are excellent once you contact them ensuring you have all the information you need. They are so helpful.

You would have no regrets whatsoever if you booked this, I certainly intend to go back. Thank you again for allowing me to rent your beautiful home in Cyprus I have been raving about it to all my friends and family.

Wonderful villa with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

A very enjoyable holiday enhanced by a lovely villa with all you could need. Website info was spot on. Good pool which was cleaned regularly. Pool guy gave good advice about eating out etc. TV has an amazing number of channels including all SKY and BT sports, movies, box sets etc. Villa clean and well maintained. Plenty of places to eat within a short distance although we needed the car to get to Peyia village. Costas restaurant and Savvas grill stood out in our opinion. Owner was very helpful in all communications before and after our holiday. I would recommend this villa to families and friends without hesitation. Finally, October was a lovely time to visit. Temperatures were 25-30 degrees and no rain.

Fantastic week at Villa Mariposa

  • 5 of 5

Had a really great week at Villa Mariposa. Beautiful place with an excellent pool and spacious rooms. It feels like a home from home. We enjoyed a couple of barbecues, as well as fabulous nights in Peyia, Paphos Harbour and also Kathikas. Can't recommend Villa Mariposa enough and will definitely be looking to return!

Coral Bay, a 5 minute drive away, has arguably the nicest beach and clearest waters in the whole of Cyprus. The beach is shaped like a horse shoe and is a paradise of soft white sand, sheltered by headlands which calm turquoise glassy waters. The summer heat is frequently tempered by a gentle onshore breeze and the sea has a shallow margin where children may safely play.


Paphos airport is a 30 minute drive away. Car hire is recommended, but not essential as the villa is on an excellent bus route to both Coral Bay and Paphos. The nearest bus stop is a five minute walk, the buses are regular reliable and clean.


Within a short drive there a significant number of beautiful traditional villages to visit. The tourist activities are too numerous to mention, but we will be more than happy to give you guidance if required. In Paphos town there are mosaics dating back 2000 years as well as Paphos castle and the fascinating Tomb of the Kings.

Further Details:

As well as places of historic interest, stunning beaches, a wonderful harbour area with seafront with shops, bars and restaurants Paphos now boasts a modern, large shopping mall with many famous international outlets as well as designer brands. There is a large Marks and Spencer, Carefour and a large multiplex cinema showing English films.

For everyday shopping there is a new Papantoniou Bakery two minutes drive away. Opening at 6am and closing at 11pm it provides a huge choice of freshly baked breads, cakes and pastries as well as day to day items such as fresh milk, eggs, cold meats, cheeses etc. There is a large supermarket 3 miles away and Lidl about a 10 minute drive.
