Perfect location on a quiet complex with views of the mountains and sea (lovely way to start the day on the balcony with a cup of tea). Villa is clean and comfortable with all amenities you could want on holiday. it feels like a home away from home with everything thought of to make our stay relaxed. The welcome pack arranged of bread, milk, tea, coffee, butter etc and even a bottle of wine in the fridge was amazing as our flight came in late
The pool is clean and the surrounding trees and well maintained garden provide privacy to sunbathe on very comfortable loungers.
The sea is only a two minutes walk as is the bus stop which runs every 15 minutes to the main strip or paphos. There is a local supermarket and bar just 100 or so yards away so no need for car rental but I would recommend a car to see more of the island.
If staying in is your thing then no worries we often stayed in our swimming clothes sparked up the easy to use gas BBQ and grilled some lovely skewers, steaks, halloumi and/ or fish with a Greek salad and a bottle of wine from phillipos a supermarket just 5 minutes drive away. We often ate on the patio at the back and had aperitifs watching the sun set sat on the patio on the front. Remember to bring some CDs to play on the hifi for extra ambiance
A nice change to going out at night was grabbing a pizza or tasty kebab and curling up on the sofas watching films yes we had English films and even fox and fox movies
Lots of fun excursions available such as Segway tours, boat trips, local tavernas, water parks and sight seeing with the information in a folder made planning fun days out a breeze when we could bare to leave our little slice of heaven.
Honestly I can't recommend this villa enough xx
This is the 4th year we have been to Villa Serendipity for a two week stay. The kids (12 & 10) absolutely love it here and so do we. Plenty of room with a well equipped kitchen, fridge/freezer, single oven, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine. Beds are very comfy, each bedroom has it's own balcony and built in wardrobes, main bedroom has ensuite and safe. Pool is cleaned twice a week and in full sun most of the day, sun loungers for 6. Wi-fi works well with no problems, satellite TV is a little limited but who is there to watch TV! Gas barbecue large enough for family use and outdoor dining area. The property management team are fantastic and happy to help with anything big or small, including recommendations for restaurants and outings.
Locally there are several bars and restaurants (Coral Oasis Taverna and O'Solomon's - see separate reviews) on the strip in Coral Bay we would recommend SiDaYes and Rio Grande.
Make sure you go to the Sea Caves (approx €8 euros in a taxi) to watch the beautiful Cyprus sunset.
Last year we rebooked before we had even started to pack to come home !
