Detached luxury holiday villa - Large private pool - 3 spacious bedrooms - 2 bathrooms plus cloakroom - Balcony sea views - Air conditioning throughout, included - Washing machine - Dishwasher - Free Internet access - Satellite TV - Substantial garden - BBQ - Parking - Strolling distance to the bars and restaurants - Families and Children more than welcome - Near the beach - Supermarket and bank are close - A car is not needed - Great reviews and sun, sun, sun!

All in all, It doesn't get much better than that!

Coral Retreat and Coral Bay in a nutshell:

Villa Coral Retreat is a beautiful, well maintained, 3 bedroom luxury villa, with a large, private pool, set in a generous garden and is superbly located in the heart of the lovely, Coral Bay Village. Our Coral Bay holiday villa is one of the twelve individually designed villas, that make up this lovely, private cul de sac, which is much sought after due to its privileged location and well maintained properties.

Good dining is a two minute wander away. Cypriot, Italian, International, Japanese, the list goes on, just take your pick. All these restaurants serve good quality foods and welcome you like old friends. There is evening entertainment in the bars and restaurants suitable for all ages, the Greek night especially is great fun, its a must!

Eating in is equally as pleasurable. Cooking scrumptious yet simple meals on the BBQ, eating the freshest of salads, while the children play happily late into the evening in the pool. The well stocked supermarket is a short distance from the villa and you are spoiled for choice with the wonderful array of locally grown salads, fruits and vegetables, a bakery that sells all manner of syrupy goodies and a great choice of fresh fish and meat. To top it off they will deliver your goods and offer you a lift - Where else would this happen, but the lovely island of Cyprus!

And most importantly, lets not forget, the beaches, only a ten to fifteen minutes walk away and on a lazy day its five minutes by bus or car. Coral Bay and Corallia beach offer warm, safe, shallow bathing with plenty of water sports. Maybe you could enjoy a long lunch, while you gaze at the sparkling ocean and sample one of the local wines and indulge in a fish Meze, topping off a blissful day at the beach.

Coral Retreat is so conveniently placed, its within easy walking distance of everything you need, car hire is not at all necessary. There is an excellent, inexpensive bus service, which runs through Coral Bay and links to Paphos old town and bustling Harbour area. However, if you choose to drive, it is a great way to explore the beautiful island of Cyprus and to discover the many treasures Cyprus has on offer, the list would be endless.

The villa:

Arriving through an arch of fragrant white Stephanotis, you get the first glimpse of the well tended garden and to its focal point, the sparkling water of the refreshingly, cool pool. The garden and pool area are substantial and accommodates the comfortable, stylish garden furniture with plenty of space. A must for your long, leisurely Cypriot lunch is the welcoming shade of the gazebo and for your evening 'al-fresco' dining the Cypriot BBQ is on hand for you to enjoy. It has all been designed for you to relax and make the most of your holiday villa in Coral Bay.

The garden is fenced to add to the privacy and has gates to the entrance and driveway, making it safe for our little guests.

Step in and you enter the large open plan living and dining area, off which the kitchen lies. Suffused with natural light and subtle furnishings, the whole villa embraces and welcomes you. The villa has a Mediterranean, contemporary twist with comfy leather sofas and chairs and marble dining table and plants dotted throughout. The kitchen is well equipped with all you will need.

Air-con is throughout the villa. (Air-con is inclusive)

Wi-Fi has been installed for your convenience and a satellite TV system with a varied choice of most UK channels. The DVD/CD has a good selection of DVD's to choose from. There are also family board games to keep everyone entertained and make the most of family time together. Or for your chill out time a large selection of books can be found at the villa.

On the lower floor there is a very handy cloakroom.

The three bedrooms have a light, airy quality, with high ceilings and stylish, understated decoration. Each has fitted wardrobes and ample draw space and a safe has been installed in the master bedroom. Clean linen and towels are provided, along with pool towels to help lighten your luggage.

The master has a double bed, an en suite with shower cubicle and leads to the balcony which looks over the rooftops to the azure blue seas of the Med. A wonderful spot to start the day, or to watch the glorious Cyprus sun setting after yet another perfect day.

Bedroom two has a double bed and shares the balcony, while bedroom three is to the rear of the villa and has two single beds. The family bathroom is found on this floor and has a bath with a shower.

A cot and high chair are provided free of charge and for your arrival a welcome pack awaits you, with our compliments.

Coral Retreat is perfect for families or families joining to holiday together and the privacy that a villa holiday offers makes it perfect for couples looking for a relaxing, romantic getaway. Our much loved villa and Coral Bay itself suits all ages and the warmth with which the Cypriot people welcome guests make it a winning combination and why guests return time and time again. Our aim is to give you the best and most memorable holiday experience and exceed your expectations. Great care has been taken with Coral Retreat, we have placed a strong emphasis on quality, style and comfort, it is far from a commercially, anonymous rental house, its your, luxury home from home with personality and it envelopes its guests in a great big welcoming hug as soon as you arrive.

Rod, Carrie and their team, our brilliant management in Cyprus and are on hand at all times should you need anything, nothing is too much trouble for them.

Getting there:

The closest airport is Paphos approximately half an hour drive.

Larnaca airport is approximately one and a half hour drive.

I can organise taxi transfers, they will be waiting at arrivals to pick you up and car hire information is available.

To help you decide if our villa is the right choice for your families needs, have a look at our reviews and comments which our previous guest have kindly taken the time to write.

We are now delighted to also be able to welcome guests to our new apartment, Little Sea Sparkle in the village of Mumbles on the Gower coast, in South Wales.

Beautiful Villa, Great Location, Fantastic Owners

  • 5 of 5

From the minute I sent the initial enquiry and Katherine responded I knew I had made the best choice. Although I am a regular user of HomeAway the first class communication from both Mike and Katherine was appreciated and would be very much so if you are not used to booking through here.

From the arranged airport transfer (Nestor) arriving at the Villa which was exactly what we expected from the photos, the kind, generous welcome pack and the fantastic location we knew we had chosen well. What I really liked is that it feels like a home not just a cold, souless holiday rental property.

The large outdoor area is beautiful, lovely comfortable patio furniture which compared to some of the neighbouring villas was welcome as many of them had quite basic plastic chairs etc.

Just a few minutes walk and you are in the heart of Coral Bay with many bars and restaurants to choose from. We tried a couple of the restaurants recommended by Katherine and enjoyed them so much we went to both twice. The Italian, La Vigna was by far the busiest, most popular and deserves to be as the food was great, and you have to go to Oniro By The Sea, just stunning beach bar with top quality cocktails and food even if you don't have a car the taxi is €10 and it's worth every penny.

The villa was lovely and clean and the beds were comfortable, most of our time was spent outdoors but it was nice to see English TV available as it is so rare when we have been away before (not that we watched much).

We arranged a trip before we went with Paphos Wine Tours, would highly recommend this trip if you want to do some sight seeing and obviously like drinking wine! We did 3 winery's ending at Vouni Panayai Winery which was the most beautiful place to enjoy a meze lunch. We bought lots of cheap, good wine that we could enjoy back at the villa on our stay in nights/BBQ.

Huge thanks to Katherine and Mike for looking after us, you clearly work very hard at making sure everyone has a lovely holiday.

Phillipos supermarket just 10 minutes walk from the villa was perfect for us as we didn't have a car we could easily walk there, do a 'big' shop and not worry about getting home as they provide you a free delivery service, just ask at the checkout and they arrange it immediately and saved us the walk back.

It was our first time to Cyprus but will definitely not be our last and I have a feeling we will be seeing you at Little Sea Sparkle in Wales sometime soon............ 😊

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Coral Retreat and it was everything as expected. The villa was very clean and homely. We enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked to return next year! The villa is in a perfect location to restaurants, bars and supermarkets.

We recommend Lekanto and Phiddias restaurants also the Millenium bar for live soul music on Saturday evenings.

Phillipus Supermarket is only a short walk away and will deliver you and your shopping back to the villa free of charge! Can't wait to return next year.

Loved, Loved , Loved Coral Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fell in love with Coral Retreat the second we walked through the gate. There was nothing the owners hadn't thought of from the big things to the minute details we were fully catered for. Walking into the villa was like walking into the home of a friend. It is beautiful!! The villa, the garden, the pool, location, everything was fantastic!! The communication with the owners from booking to returning was 1st class. We will definitely be returning xx

Pretty Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Before we arrived Kathleen provided plenty of info and we were made to feel welcome.

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, yet a very short walk from a vast selection of restaurants and bars.

The villa is simply superb both inside and out. Every home comfort is catered for with high quality furniture and a good kitchen. The beds are very comfy and all rooms a good size.

The pool is great, being shallow going to a depth of 1.9 metres.

Can`t really fault the owners or the villa, its pretty perfect!

Lots to do nearby. Recommend the Japanese restaurant for a fun experience. The Greek Taverna with dancing on a Tuesday and Friday night. The wave dancer gourmet cruise night on a Monday. The free coach picks you up locally, and the "Safari" up to Aphrodite`s baths.

Got quite addicted to ending up in one of the bars at the end of some evenings. Cheap drinks and fun entertainment.

We did little but so much!! Wish we could do it all over again!!

What a fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

'What a fantastic week' totally sums up our holiday at Villa Coral Retreat!

The villa was of the highest standard and had everything you could possibly need. All the information provided by Katherine before arrival was extremely useful, helpful and detailed. The welcome chat with Rod was also really informative. We organised airport transfers with Katherine and these ran perfectly.

We went with friends and there was plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 children to chill out, relax and have fun. The children loved the pool and spent every waking minute in there! The men enjoyed the bbq and the pool table and the women loved the poolside loungers and relaxed atmosphere. The lemons growing in the garden made the g&ts even lovelier than usual!

The bars and restaurants on the main street are a short stroll away and we had many lovely meals there.

We explored the local area by bus (number 615) which runs like clock work. We would recommend Paphos harbour (especially in the evening), Corallia beach which was great for the children and the water was crystal clear, and the hotel Laura Beach which had a mini water park for the children. Philipos supermarket had everything you could ever need and will even transport you and your shopping back to the villa!

We had such a lovely half term there we would go back every year without any hesitation.

Thank you Katherine for such a lovely week!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Paphos at 20 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Kikkos Bar at 100 Metres Nearest Restaurant : La vigna at 100 Metres Nearest Beach : Coral Bay at 200 Metres Car: not necessary

Villa Coral Retreat is in a truly enviable position. It has the advantage of being within easy walking distance of the superb amenities of Coral Bay. Coral Bay is described as being the 'Jewel in Paphos' crown'. This small holiday resort is found on the outskirts of its busier neighbour, Paphos. It has a lovely friendly, comfortable, safe feeling and attracts guests back year after year.

There is a great selection for the evenings, chic restaurants mingle with traditional tavernas, some offer family evening entertainment, such as Greek dancing (mainly in high season) or you can just enjoy quiet intimate dining and appreciate one of the local wines. This combination, along with the beautiful beaches makes Coral Bay the perfect location for a holiday in Cyprus.

An excellent bus service is accessed 2 minutes away from the villa (a flat walk) and runs regularly to Paphos historic old town and market and the lovely Paphos harbour with medieval fort. The fare is about 1.50 Euro each way and a day ticket can be purchased and you can hop on and off as you wish. Alternatively there are many options to join one of the wonderful organised guided trips.

For our younger guests, enjoy safe swimming in the local beaches, a ten minute walk away, here in the crescent shaped, shallow water of Coral Bay, many water sports are available, pedaloes, diving, paragliding etc. or consider a visit to the near by zoo, the water park at Paphos or the Go-Karting, in Paphos or Coral Bay, the list goes on.

Visit Lara Bay, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, here, within in the Akamas nature reserve is where you will find the hatchery of the loggerhead turtles.

Marvel at the amazingly well preserved Tombs of the Kings and the mosaics in Paphos.

Further a field take a visit to the wonderful Troodos mountains (skiing in winter), stopping off in one of the small villages, such as Omodos along the way, immerse yourself in the feeling of village life and enjoy a long leisurely lunch.

Kourion is another wonder of Cyprus and in my opinion, well worth a visit.

The luxurious Limasol Marina

Kings avenue shopping Mall

Closer to home, ladies pamper yourself at the 5* Coral Beach spa resort or the Thalassa boutique hotel while the gentlemen visit one of the local golf courses.

A car is not needed to visit many of these wonderful places but, although not essential car hire makes exploring a must.

Culture and sport events.:

Outside the walls of the medieval fort at Paphos harbour, the Paphos Aphrodite Festival hosts a yearly, open air, Opera under the stars. This wonderful experience takes place in Cyprus annually in September. An event not to be missed by opera lovers.


Cyprus Weddings: With Cyprus reputed to be, The Island of Love.

Cyprus has played host to many happy couples getting married and we have been delighted at Coral Retreat to accommodate many couples and their wedding parties.


Dietary requirement: Gluten free. A welcome pack of gluten free bread and products can be made available on request, for guests with Coeliac Disease.

All in all, perfect accommodation for families, families getting together, couples, wedding accommodation, golfing, or ladies pamper breaks.
