We had a lovely time staying at Open Views Villa for the first week of our holiday in Cyprus. With only a 10 minute drive to Paphos harbour we felt we were a good distance away from the hubub of the busier areas to enjoy a relaxing holiday but be able to venture out for a meal and/or drink when we wanted. We loved the idea of having a water cooler in the villa so we did not run out of ice cold water! The kitchen was also well equipt. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the balcony outside the double bedrooms and of course from the rooftop! The whole villa has been well maintained and we didn't even hear/notice the 'ninja' pool maintenance man. We found the directions from the airport easy to use (especially seen as neither of our 4G/3G was working on our phones!). We had a super speedy response from Gavin when we had trouble getting the key upon our arrival to the villa in the early hours of Sunday morning, which was amazing! This villa comes highly recommended from myself and my girlfriend and we would definitely choose and recommend a villa stay over a commercial hotel!
This is our 2nd holiday in open views and, like the first time, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves it is well equipped with a lovely pool we especially liked the water cooler having cool water on tap the whole stay, just pop along to the village shop and purchase 15ltr bottle bargain!A car is advised to venture further afield and explore this fabulous island and easy parking in paphos harbour area for great choice of restaurants .Gavin/hannah the owners are excellent and really helpful if you need advice.already booked for october cant wait ☺
Another brilliant holiday with friends at Open Views Villa,,, as usual all the booking of villa and car hire was done through Hannah and Gavin so absolutely no problems whatsoever..The weather was very kind to us,, quite hot so we made use of the pool most days and visited local eateries in the evenings once it was abit cooler,, Looking forward to seeing the improvements at the Old Town Paphos next year as really like this part of Paphos,,,so look out Hannah and Gavin you will be called on again for your help!
Fantastic stay at this villa great communication from gavin and hannah very much as described.you do need to rent a car to make things easier if you plan to go out and about. Nice peaceful area to stay.has all the amenities described on rental page. Will definately be staying here again! Couldnt find fault with the villa at all.owners very helpful with car hire info and local area etc plenty of maps and leaflets at the villa for days out and places of interest.also has the bonus of friendly neighbour's.you could if you wanted do a good shop and stay put here for days. The road a little way back did not bother us one bit as mentioned in a previous review.we found it quiet peacefull.
Thank you to gavin amd hannah for a great stay.
We stayed here in July 2016 easy to book and Gavin and Hannah were quick to respond to any queries and sent us very clear instructions to gain entrance to villa
The villa itself is well equipped and easy access into Paphos we hired a car for the time we were there and had a great time driving round the local area
We loved the water cooler and easy to refill from local shop no need to buy bottled water
The pool area was lovely a sun beds enough for 6 and shade pool is a good size
Lovely villa and stay
Villa 15mins from Paphos set in a local village, villa very spacious bigger than you think from the photos. All the equipment you may need like home from home even sandwich maker and electric grill + cold water unit which we used. Beds comfortable and clean. Plenty of coat hangers (makes a change). Pool man must be like a church mice as we didn't hear him at all we knew he had been as plenty of leaves in pool from previous day as a bit windy. Didn't hire a car as wanted a relaxing holiday but Gavin give us phone Nos of reliable taxi drivers who we did call on. We would hire a car to see more of the island when we go again.
Thank you Gavin for all the help on making our holiday very enjoyable.
We are looking forward to going again next year and will be contacting you towards end of this year
The Villa is situated about a 5 minute drive from Paphos so you definitely need a hire car.
Lovely Villa, clean and tidy and could not fault it. Plenty of information leaflets at the villa for places to visit etc. and all directions to and from are very clear.
The villa is not overlooked and the swimming pool is maintained well at all times. There is air conditioning which is essential.
Will definitely visit again and recommend to friends.
