“Fabulous Villa in a great location”
Reviewed January 9, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed at Ouranos Villa for 10 days and had a fantastic holiday. From the moment we enquired about the villa Donna was extremely helpful and provided plenty of information both on the villa and the surrounding area.
Donna also arranged a transfer from the airport which again was a reliable and efficient service.
The villa and pool were clean and kept to a very high standard. The pool was cleaned twice a week during our stay very early in the morning so certainly didn't interrupt our holiday.
The location was ideal just far enough out so you could still enjoy the peace and quiet in the evenings if you wanted to but not too far to go for meals out or a drink. The villa was just as described and we all very much enjoyed/appreciated the choice of outdoor spaces.
Our 2 children aged 10 and 14 had a fab time in the pool. We also visited a number of local beaches which were fantastic although we did rely on the car to visit the quieter more remote beaches.
It was an absolutely perfect holiday and there was nothing we could fault, everything was hassle free and ran extremely smoothly. We would certainly rent your villa again if we return to the area in the future.
Whilst a car is not necessary, we would also recommend the Car Hire company recommended in your information pack to any future guests, Go Rent a Car. There service was also faultless, delivering the car to the villa for us. There representative also had a Credit Card machine with him so there was no need for us to accompany him to their office. Also, when returning the car to the airport another representative met us at the departures drop off and took the car from us with no need for us to park the car and look for Car Hire Desks etc.
We definitely hope to return to Ouranos Villa.

“Excellent villa in quiet location but within walking distance of Protaras centre”

We rented Villa Ouranos based upon the description and comments by previous holidaymakers. It has consistently been rated as 5 star and our experience confirms this.
The Villa itself which is in a quiet undisturbed cul de sac is in very good condition with all the amenities you could require whilst on holiday. The private pool is excellent with roman steps giving an easy means of access and we spent a great deal of our lazy holiday lounging around the pool enjoying its all day sunny position. The outside area is very attractive with an abundance of flowers and some welcome shaded areas to relax out of the sun.
We paid for a midstay clean as this was the only way to ensure change of bedlinen which was necessary when staying for 2 weeks in such hot conditions but more enterprising people could use the washing machine if they wished. The people who carried out the cleaning were very thorough and helpful as was the person who cleaned the pool twice a week.
Air conditioning is operated on a meter which means you can see exactly how much it is costing and you top up using prepaid cards which seems a very fair and simple system ( cost us a total of 50 euros for 2 weeks)
The correspondence with owners Donna and Allan has been excellent with nothing seeming too much trouble for them even down to arranging value for money airport transfers with a very pleasant Mr John who also runs trips to the Turkish occupied Famagusta.
The beaches of which there are many are very good but seem very busy.
There is a promenade which stretches from Pernera to Protaras which is a very enjoyable walk although you may need to stop at one of the many welcoming watering holes on the way for refreshments.
There are lots of very nice and reasonably priced restaurants and if you are up for it you can spend time drinking cocktails and watching one of the numerous and reasonably good tribute acts performing throughout Protaras and beyond.
A visit to the church of St. Elias is also wortha visit for the view over Protaras but the steps make it not for the faint hearted.
All in all we had a lovely time and would happily return.

“Lovely, peaceful villa with nice pool and outdoor shaded areas”

We booked this villa as friends were getting married in Protaras. We had a lovely time at the villa and found the owner Donna very friendly, helpful and flexible to our needs. We were not planning on hiring a car but in the end changed our minds; Donna arranged for us to hire the villa car whilst there and this really did make our trip even more enjoyable as we have a young baby so this meant we could go out for lunches but not have to walk in the midday sun.
The villa is located on a short walk to the centre of Protaras so in a good location if you would rather not be in the heart of things but still enjoy nights out, we wandered down every night and found the location perfect.
We had a great time and would recommend the villa to others.
Thanks Donna!

“Superb Villa”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

Have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Cyprus at a lovely villa. Villa is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac but is only a 5-10 minute stroll to the start of the main strip. The villa itself was very clean and spacious and the outdoor area was amazing, beautiful flowers, 3 different areas which were undercover and a lovely sized pool. Donna was very helpful in answering all of our questions and even sent us a text message on our first day to ensure that we were happy with the villa. Our only feedback would be that the villa and garden area is not enclosed so anybody could walk in by two different areas at any point, having these two areas enclosed with a lockable gate would have made our stay feel more secure. Saying this we would still use this villa again as it was so nice and in such a great location.

We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the feedback. We have taken on board your comments and have put plans into place to enclose the front area of the villa. Other guests have told us that they like the open aspect of the cul-de-sac and because it's very secluded it's also very safe. There are only 3 villas in our area and we have two of them. The other is empty so not just anyone would walk into the garden. It's a shame to enclose this beautiful space as it was designed to enjoy the view. We're glad you would return and would love to have you stay again.

“Lovely Villa in excellent location”
Reviewed August 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Recently returned from our holiday and really enjoyed it.
The villa is in a quite cul de sac but only 5 mins from the main strip, with Malmia worth a stop non the way.
The villa has 3 superb shaded areas which you need at this time of year. The pool was superb and as others have said cleaned twice a week by a friendly pool man.
Would recommend to anyone - we were a group of 6, myself / wife, my daughter and her partner and our 2 granchildren ( 6 & 3). There was something for all of us - the gran kids loved Lazy Frogs - a good stop off on the way home.
Niks off licence was less than 2 mins away and the prices were excellent 22 euros for 24 Budwieser.
Would go back again without a second thought.
Bit of advice we booked our own transfer and they did struggle to find it as Donna did explain to us - if you do this make sure you have Donnas directions with you as i found the villa using these directions. Thanks.
