We really enjoyed our stay at this villa! The villa was exactly as described and the amenities were terrific. The welcome book and welcome letter both contain all of the information you need. Felix was very responsive to texts and made some great recommendations, such as a visit to Lachti Harbor and renting a boat there.
We arrived several hours later than expected due to British Airways connection snafu and Lisa and Felix were kind enough to leave some food basics for us in the villa so we had something available to eat as soon as we arrived.
Our only hiccup was getting very lost finding the villa as we wound up arriving so late that it was dark when we were driving to the villa. It might have been much easier to find for the first time during daylight. The property itself is not recognized by GPS. If you can get to the Banana Leaf coffee shop in Coral Bay, you are pretty much there!
Thanks, Lisa and Felix, for a wonderful stay at this villa! We always rent a villa for vacation and we all agreed that this was by far the best villa and best value of all the villas where we’ve stayed in Europe, South America and the US!
Many thanks to Philipos for guiding us to the place when we arrived. He had stocked the fridge with some essentials and his wife had baked a lovely cake for us. We arrived late (1 am) so this was very welcome as we had two children in tow. We absolutely loved the villa and the slightly cooler temperature in Drouseia which avoided the kids getting sunburnt but still warm enough for swimming. Lots of attractions nearby not least the waterfalls which was a particular highlight, and wild beaches near Polis and the Aphrodite baths. Very happy times for us all. We haven’t really got any suggestions to improve anything as everything was taken care of nicely and we had a wonderful family holiday. Thanks so much!. Pro tips for AirBnB travellers: hire a VW group car (we had a Skoda Octavia from Sixt at Paphos Airport) with Apple CarPlay and connect Waze to find your way around. Make sure you book a reservation on a Saturday night as many locals go out at the weekends. Try out the restaurants in Drouseia as well as nearby Kathikas - seek out the Stifado dish - a Cypriot speciality. The Zoo and Waterpark are not too far away and well worth a visit in addition to the Terra Waterfalls and wild beach just outside Polis (stony but Blue Flag and crystal clear warm waters). Install Trip Advisor on your phone and use the nearby function as this works better than AirBnB which is lacking in information on the Drouseia area.
