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.

Villa Coral Retreat is a stunning, family friendly villa, furnished to a very high standard, yet encompasses the welcoming feeling of home. Your comfort, enjoyment and safety is of utmost importance to us. The sun flooded garden is enclosed and of generous size. Surrounding the pool is awash with colour from the Bougainvillea, Birds of paradise, rich palms and fragrant Stephanotis. Pick your own orange or mandarin or for your sundowner, one of the abundant lemons growing, for your G&T. Throughout the day the garden offers cooler shaded areas to sit, lie or BBQ in, while our younger guests can enjoy safe play, in plenty of space. 6 loungers with parasols and tables and a large family sized patio table that sits under the welcoming shade of the gazebo. Out door pool shower. The pool has a shallow end and steps each end to enter. Carrie and Rod take very good care of Coral Retreat in our absence. So you will always have someone to hand.

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............ 😊

Gorgeous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Katherine is a lovely host, her communication is excellent and she made us feel comfortable renting her lovely villa. The Villa is excellent especially the pool and garden area which is huge. The villa is very convenient for Coral Bay avenue, but our favourite bars were Oniro's about 5 minutes drive up the coast and Sea You just outside Coral Bay. The bus route (615) in and out of Coral Bay is excellent and runs every 15min.

Visiting Paphos old town you must visit Laona restaurant, the food is awesome. On the drive to Lara Bay you must also stop at The Last Castle up on the hill... the view is exceptional.

Visiting a winery is well worth it. We loved Vouni Panayia Winery, it was a lovely drive past the Kannaviou reservoir. We arrived there a bit early, but no problem - free glass of wine, then a wine tasting experience through all their wines and spirits they make - then a winery tour and then lunch (another lovely Meze platter) and exceptional value for money

Great location, very well equipped villa - whats not to like!!

  • 4 of 5

Coral Retreat is an ideal location with 3 good sized bedroons and an ensuite along with a family bathroom. Beautiful pool setting and patio area providing a terrific spot for family BBQs or just lazing in the sun. Plenty of sun loungers and chairs to relax in and access to UK tv is a bonus for those that want to keep in touch with events 'back home'.

Would definitely book this villa again for a break in the med sunshine. Very good value for money.

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
