The Villa and surrounding area has everything we require for a fantastic holiday.
The villa exterior is excellent for both day and night.
Swimming pool . sun loungers ,BBQ and plenty of seating.
We are a family with teenagers and the area has it all.
Fantastic beeches , nightlife and other attraction's to suit all.
We have been coming to this part of Cyprus for the last ten years and hope to continue for many more.
Although a car is good to get about it is not essential as there is beeches ,bars restaurants and supermarkets within five minute stroll from villa
We have stayed in the area, even the same street for 3 years now and love the area. The 2 previous villas we have been very happy with the cleanliness. Unfortunately wits end was not the same. When we arrived at night we found absolutely nothing there for us, not even a bottle of water. After saying I found this a bit strange(2 previous villas had welcome packs) we was told that this could of been purchased prior to arrival, which is a bit late when we was already there.
First thing in the morning we woke up to find the villa had hardly been cleaned. I was so upset with this so I emailed the owner who did respond straight away and the manager came around that day. He was apologetic but also tried blaming others saying it was the cleaners, which I've later found out he did the cleaning!!
None of the floors had been moped and they had swept any rubbish under the sofas and in the corners. The sofa covers were absolutely filthy and the manager did accept this was unacceptable. All the furniture had sun cream all over it. The main issue was the outside area. There was bits of rubbish everywhere, especially bird droppings. When I mentioned this I was told the storm the day of arrival had caused this due to no guttering but from the pictures we took you can see a lot of it was old dirt. All the outside furniture had been left out for an eternity without being cleaned. The drains around the pool were blocked so when the kids were splashing around then the water would collect the dirt and go back in the pool.
There were a few things that just made us a bit peeved about this villa as it was more expensive than the previous 2 but no where near as clean.
I actually spent half a day cleaning on the first day just to make it bearable. That was after shopping for cleaning items as nothing was in the villa to clean with.
I didn't want to write a bad review but the more I think about our stay the more it upsets me.
One thing I will say is the owner responded very quickly to my mails and arranged for a pool cleaner and the manager to come around promptly.
I have to be honest on my review and that's why I wouldn't come back to this villa, but we will be coming back to Cyprus for the 4th year in a row.
We booked Wits End not really knowing the area in Cyprus but knowing it was fairly close to a wedding venue we were attending in Ayia Napa and going on previous reviews and excellent photos on Trip Advisor. We contacted the owner Elaine a couple of times and always got a positive response. We arrived late in the evening from Larnaca and as soon as we walked in, we felt at home. A nice welcome pack awaited us so we were able to unpack leisurely and have a cuppa! The villa is air conditioned and has a plentiful supply of stand alone fans dotted around the house. A lovely appointed living area downstairs and two nice sized on suite bedrooms was most welcome. The villa is on the end of a terrace of villa so had a 360 degree surround with sun beds and a pool, big enough for the 4 of us. The Stone built BBQ was used twice whilst we stayed and was a brilliant addition for warm evenings sat around drinking and eating fresh fish and meat, all bought locally. Whilst we were there we encountered a few problems, one of which we managed to lock ourselves out but were able to call our appointed caretakers, William and Jackie Rae who sorted us out. A suggestion would be to overcome a repeat of this problem which is easily done, would be to have a spare key somewhere outside the villa. Not sure where but no doubt Elaine would know. It was easy to lock yourselves out as we shut all windows but one of us left the key on the inside of the front door thinking someone had it. The villa is really lovely but a hire car is needed to get into Protaris or Ayia Napa. We'd all love to return and we shall. The local beaches are beautiful as is the whole area. Thank you Elaine.
This is our 4th family holiday to this villa and it definitely won't be our last!
The villa is in an excellent location, peaceful with great outside space with a pool, which we used nearly every day, a 2 minute walk will take you to Kennedy ave where you will find good restaurants and bars, a lovely bakery and small supermarket, there is also a beach which my granddaughters loved.
It is only a 5 minute drive to Protaras which has an array of shops, restaurants and a beautiful beach.
The inside of the villa is homely and has everything you need, Elaine the owner is so very helpful and is always on hand if you should need any information.
An outstanding villa - one of the best we have ever stayed in.
Inside - great living and kitchen area - very clean and we stayed in sometimes and cooked. Wide range of DVDs to use which my children loved after a long day in the sun. There's also DVDs in the bedroom which they could watch in bed. Air conditioning was available in every room and fans in the bedroom which kept the villa nice and cool when needed.
The bedrooms were great and the beds were so comfortable.
What an amazing amount of space. So many different areas to choose to be in. The children loved sitting at the entrance to the villa on the seats in the shade. There is also another undercover area as well as an area for sunbathing and the pool. The corner plot meant that it was often cool as the wind would wrap around the villa which was great. Being at the end of the complex, the villa backs onto wasteland and from the upper balcony there are gorgeous views of the sea. We spent time in the evening having a drink before we went out watching the sun set. It was so quiet due to the open space behind the villa - it really helped us to relax.
The pool was great - not too deep which was good for the children. It was cleaned twice weekly which meant it was always clean. There were spades, inflatables etc which were available for people to use.
It's a five minute walk to the main road and restaurants. Taxis and buses are available if you want to travel further for a decent price. Local beaches were good too.
I would definitely recommend staying here - we would love to visit again.
Great location, great bars and restaurants near by, lots of sights to see. Very local lovely beach.
Home from home feel well equipped with everything you need and more.
We really can't wait to return!
