We returned a couple of weeks ago from a week long stay at Villa Blue Phoenix. Our first holiday in a villa, and Menelaos have definitely convinced us that this is the way forward!
Excellent communication from owner Menelaos from the moment of booking, through to our return home.
A genuine, lovely bloke who couldn’t do enough to make sure our stay was perfect for us, his attentive and professional outlook definetly shines through in his property.
As a young couple we found the accomadtion suited us perfectly, with a fantastic open plan living kitchen area, which opens out onto the pool and well equipt BBQ area where we enjoyed most of our evenings.
The area was fairly quiet due to the time of year, but in general it’s well located. A small friendly pub/bar a couple of hundred meters away, and a couple of small supermarkets/kiosk, as well as a decent beach within easy walking distance. The bus stops at the end of the drive way every 30mins which will take you down to protaras or Ayia Napa in 20/40 mins, and runs all night, and a good 20 minute walk will get you into the nearest town and restraunts.
We would advise a hire car to get out to the more popular beaches, sights, large supermarket etc.
Overall a fantastic stay, in a beautiful property and would highly recommend. Just don’t book for September............because we want to go back!
A great villa with all you need to feel like home. From fully equipped kitchen, to an outdoor pool and a BBQ place. The rooms are big and with a jacuzzi in the main one. The villa is 3 min. walk from the beautiful beaches of Protaras. We had a great time there thanks to the lovely owner, Menelaos, who would like to assist you with any question or need.
For a 5th time in row we visit the Blue Phoinix villa and we are extremely happy for another one time!
We had a great time at the villa. It is a great location in a quiet spot outside Protaras yet close enough to all the key amenities and importantly 2 minutes walk from the beach! The villa is as described, very comfortable and well equipped. The kids loved the pool, the barbecue area is very useful. There are a couple of mini-markets 3 minutes walk away and wonderful restaurants with local food which we all loved.
Menelaos' planning was meticulous, he though about every little detail and welcomed us upon the arrival which made it extra special. Menelaos spent time with us explaining the details about the villa and the location- his recommendations were very appreciated! All in all, we had a fabulous stay at the villa and can definitely recommend it to other travellers.
Thank you Menelanos for a lovely relaxing holiday.
The peace and quiet of this villa made our holiday complete along with the fantastic large pool, loved jumping in and doing a few laps every morning and the added bonus of it lighting up at night, really beautiful.
Fantastic Bbq, with large outside island to prepare food, with stools to sit at and the added bonus of an outside sink.. Just the place to mix a few "sundowners"! We used the Bbq 8 out of 10 nights, the villa was so peaceful we didn't want to leave.
About 5 minutes walk you have a large marine reserve, if you like snorkeling it is a must, turn left out of the villas drive, past the supermarket, past the beach bar on the right. You need beach shoes, a small shore to sit on but really worth it. Beautiful clear water, lots and lots of fish... take your old bread and the fish will follow you.
Thank you Menelanos for the welcome pack, it was really good, very kind for you to provide it for free, the village bread was delicious.
You could stay here without a car, but if you have a villa I don't see why you would not have a car to explore the island, it makes shopping more convenient. Lidl and Metro supermarket are not far away and you can drive 2 minutes down the road and go to Zorbas bakery for the biggest and best Ice cream cones for €1 a scoop, too big for us to finish!
The master bedroom with its huge shower was great, lovely big superking bed. We both have a back condition and slept well every night.
The kitchen has everything and more that you will need, big fridge freezer and every gadget you would need. Nice big Island to sit at in the morning with a ceramic hob, enough room for all to sit at and eat breakfast.
The carport is a great feature, keeps the car cooler during hot days, and thought that the gate on the drive was really good, made us feel secure and private.
Thanks for a memorable holiday
Al & Chris
We spent another week in Villa Blue Phoenix in July 2017 and our stay was perfect once more. We keep coming year after year because we find it unbelievable value and feel so well looked-after. The property is in top shape, very modern, family friendly and child safe. The pool area is stunning. Lots of space and privacy. Based on other villas on offer in Protaras, this is a top pick. Already booked for next year!
Back for our second visit to blue pheonix. I love this villa, the surrounding area, the pool, the different beaches, the restaurants, plenty for the kids to do, the boat trips, water sports and the water parks. I felt like we were at home. I could make dinner at the villa easily if we didn't fancy going out and the supermarkets had everything you needed. Kids loved the wifi access and being able to go in and out the pool and relax inside if they wanted. The owner was lovely and really helpful. Will definitely be coming back
