Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Rachel. Very comfortable beds, clean linen and a very well equipped kitchen. Gorgeous pool. Location is slightly out of the main resort but buses run very frequently although if we visited again we would probably rent a car for the week. Only real negatives were the lack of local information i.e bus timetable, local beaches, supermarkets etc. Also, outside lights were not all working and we had a problem getting the digital TV system to work. Apart from this, we had a lovely time and Pete and Yvonne were very helpful.
Firstly, the location was perfect. A 5 minute walk to beautiful beaches and local supermarket. Would recommend hiring a car if you wanted to explore more of the island, such as Ayia Napa and Larnaca, however there are buses.
Villa was perfect, had everything we needed and Peter and Yvonne were very accommodating in regards to any extras we asked for. They were also very friendly and ensured we were happy during our stay.
The pool was well maintained and cleaned every other day. Temperature was also perfect.
Would return to this villa tomorrow if we could!
Thankyou Peter and Yvonne
Very good location for a relaxing holiday with easy access to major beaches and tourist spots. About 1 hr to Larnaca and 1.5 hrs to Limmosol but after visiting these cities so pleased we stayed on the east coast. Nicosia is also about 1 hr away and worth a visit. A full day trip to Nicosia,Troodos Mountains and beyond was also a highlight. We also went into Northern Cyprus controlled by Turkey which was not far.
We arrived early May so some restaurants and other facilities hadn't opened for the summer season but there was still plenty for us to see, shop and eat.
The villa was everything we expected, clean and all the basics were provided including wifi and a pool which was very clean and maintained a couple of times whilst we were there. No issues at all with villa.
Peter and Yvonne made us very welcome and were available to assist when asked.
Visited for a wedding at the golden coast hotel. So pleased we chose the villa over the hotel.No real need for a car. Bus service excellent and taxis too. Taxis about the same price as uk. Loads of restaurants a bus ride away and a couple of really nice places in walking distance. Villa managers were lovely really helpful and there when needed. Only slight thing which could have been better was the air con in the main bedroom. The villa backs onto a farm which is great lovely open aspect and sunsets. Walking distance to a few beaches and coves. Great base . would definately recommend.

The villa is in walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The heated pool was a great feature in early May.
