Location Location Location – and this has it in spades, seconds (I kid you not) from the main Coral Bay strip, but still tucked away from the noise and traffic, you wouldn’t know it’s there. It’s perfect. 5 minute stroll from a large well equipped supermarket that is very English enabled, 15 minutes easy walk from the beach/bay (or 5 mins drive if you prefer – free parking) and masses of restaurants nearby. Room for 2 small/compact cars to park. It has the right balance between proximity, facility and comfort.
The actual villa is well equipped, has a lovely spacious downstairs living room/diner/lounge with a large telly that has Netflix etc that you can sign into. (keeps the kids happy). Kitchen is well equipped. Outside is a terrace downstairs with tables and chairs leading to a large pool that has a sunshade next to it and sun loungers. It is very nicely laid out. The pool gets the sun through morning and lunchtime, and then mercifully has some shade in the extreme heat of the afternoon. You can always sit in shade or sun – your choice.
Upstairs are 3 well appointed bedrooms with the 2 doubles opening up onto a terrace overlooking the pool, it has table and chairs. Great place to sit away from the teens and have a quiet few moments. The kids even said that the twin room was the most comfortable they’d stayed in – high praise indeed!
All in all – I really recommend this. Please don’t book it as I may want to book it myself 😊
Outside there is a covered patio area with sofa, chairs and a table perfect for getting a bit of shade in that Cyprus sun, another seating area for those sun-seekers and six loungers dotted around the pool (all with available parasol bases), there's plenty of room and if like me, you like to follow the sun around, you can simply move with the sun until it sets. The pool was perfect - a great size, sparkling and a lovely temperature. Steps lead into the shallow end and the deep end is accessed by a ladder. Around the pool there are beautiful plants and bushes making it such a stunning setting.
Although Coral Bay is lively, Villa Garlands was quiet and serene. We certainly felt as though we were in a private and peaceful area which made us all sleep like the proverbial logs. Life is so hectic so a week of repose; lounging around and taking things slowly was just what we needed. We very much look forward to visiting Cyprus again and we know that Villa Garlands will be where we will choose to stay.
many thanks, Victoria, Mark and Finn
I wanted to thank you all for being such an amazing team, forever putting us first and always going above and beyond supporting all of our wants and wishes.
If ever there was a nobel peace prize for kindness, support, thinking outside the box to ensure all holiday people are happy bunnies you would win hands down.😉
Words cannot express how lucky I feel to have found you all and to have so many happy memories from Cyprus captured never to leave me.
