We have just completed 2 weeks in Villa Vouno as a family of 8 Adults, 4 Toddlers and 2 Babies.
First and foremost I must say that Nick and his team of Debbie and Mark are amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, Debbie arranged extra Cots, we had an issue with one of the Aircon Units which Mark rectified quickly and an issue with the hire car overheating, Nick had a replacement car to us in an hour, outstanding service.
The Villa itself is spacious with 3 floors, 3 Big Balconies and a large pool. Two fully equipped kitchens were very useful, complete with washing machines and dishwashers.outside there is a 4 burner Gas BBQ which we used a lot! The location on Pine Bay is great with views out around the Pines. Pissouri Square is a 20 minute Walk so for us with toddlers etc a little too far but we drove and enjoyed it that way.Pissouri Bay is a shingle/ Large Pebble Beach and is a 10 minute Drive. Watermania Fasouri is a 30 minute drive, we went twice, and Limmasol, Ladies Mile ( Sandy Beach) are also around 30 to 40 mins away so great for a day out.
There is a great communal Pool with a toddler Pool, Tennis Court and Boules Pitch available 200 mtr from the Villa, we used this often as the Toddlers loved it.
Paps Supermarket is a 5 minute drive and is perfect for virtually all of your requirements.
If i were to offer any negatives? A fence between the terrace and the pool would be great to give extra safety for toddlers, and a fence across the bottom of the drive to do the same. Maybe some form of netting up the side of the Cypress Trees to reduce the debris from them blowing into the pool.Apart from that we had a great time, it is a very large Villa with all the facilities you could need for a family holiday, Cyprus is lovely, and we would certainly return.
Unfortunately this villa does not measure up to the description
We were staying as part of a large group but in the annexe
There were the following issues
Double room smelled musty and damp even after a week of the windows being open
View from double was onto the pool pump which was running continuously the first night giving us little sleep
Blanket was blood stained, there was a sanitary towel in the cupboard, the rather smelly spare blankets were stuffed, not folded in the cupboard along with some burnt ironing board covers, and also smelled unclean. I washed a blanket myself. Bed was hard I had to put one of the spare quilts under the sheet to make it reasonable. One bedside table no bedside lights. I found one in a cupboard with no bulb. Pillows flat as pancakes/ worn out. Awful folding plastic door into the smeary tiled bathroom with stained floor and no towel rails
The other bedroom in the annexe has NO window-HORRIBLE- and was so small that the two twin beds could not be arranged to have a bedside table by each and still allow access to the bathroom or cupboard. The crockery and glassware and cutlery was cheap and mismatching. No sharp knives. Had to take a grill pan from the upstairs. Few cooking utensils. No pan lids that fitted. No grater. Very basic. Not impressed by the noisy flimsy dark glass table and coffee table and no WiFi in the bedroom. No side lamps. Generally felt unwelcoming indoors. Upstairs the furniture seems better in the lounge but the lighting is dim and dismal and the place , certainly the annexe, WAS ABSOLUTELY NOT A LUXURY VILLA as described by the owner. Friends staying in other villas nearby had very much nicer accommodation. Finally we were advised that we could stay on after the usual checkout time unless there was a booking in which case we would be contacted. We were not told so were looking forward to a relaxed last day until the cleaners turned up and we had to pack up in a hurry even though we hadn’t been emailed. Nick the owner introduced himself as we were leaving, it’d be more useful to call in at the start of a stay.
Good points were the outside seating area downstairs and erm, not much else.
This was our second stay at Villa Vounos and again we were not disappointed. Apart from the lovely villa and pool what really makes this stay amazing is the owner Nick who is so friendly and accommodating.
Cannot recommend this place enough. Gutted its already booked for next year, hopefully we will be back in 2019
Cannot recommend this villa highly enough. Fantastic location, wonderful attentive when needed host, clean, we'll presented, very well equipt villa. Close, but not too close to the local amenities. (Bunch of grapes restaurant was fantastic). Car hire was brilliant.
Just plain excellent all round. Will defiantly be looking to return.
