“Quiet relaxing good priced villa,”
Reviewed September 15, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The villa was good value for money as it had 3 double rooms, 2 with balcony and a nice secluded pool

the pool area is surrounded by bushes nice trees and flowers and this makes a very nice pool area

the area is very quiet so sitting by the pool in the hot sun is so peaceful and relaxing. We also had a barbeque by the pool with some friends which was great

Went to Pathos harbour every day to have the best ice cream I have tasted while wandering around harbour, Also went to Trodos mountains where there is a lovely view and nice scenic walking area

all in all a good value relaxing holiday which was good value for money

“Fabulous villa, great location”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Arrived late to be met and shown the way to the villa by John. Very welcoming and helpful and had basic supplies in for us after long flight. The villa is down a quiet side street, with one next door neighbour and a half built complex opposite. (No work being done on this so it wasn't a problem and is obscured by lovely bushes and trees around villa property, making the property lovely and peaceful) The villa is near the pretty village of Peyia. We recommend a stroll up to the village for a meal at The Grand, in a picturesque openair courtyard and reasonable priced meal, through get there early if you want homemade moussaka as it sells out fast. The villas has all the amenities you need. Our son especially liked having the twin room en-suite downstairs whilst we had the double room, own large sun terrace and family bathroom upstairs. Air con through-out was greatly appreciated. Phillipos is the local supermarket, though we recommend a trip to Lidl in Paphos as it was quite pricey. There a loads of places to visit within 30 minutes. We definitely recommend hiring a speed boat at Latsi and visiting Blue Lagoon, the sea is crystal clear and warm. Boat hire is 150 euros a day including snorkels and cool box - well worth the treat, although you will be billed for extra full, it cost us an extra 25 euros. A dip at Adonis falls is thrilling and worth a visit - don't be put of with the reviews of the bad road surface - we hired a ford focus and it was more than adequate. We recommend exploring the many coves and beaches up and down the Akamas area rather than just sticking to Coral Bay. Whole family had a fantastic time, enhanced by beautiful villa and good location.

“Good Villa & Good Holiday”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This was our second trip to villa Sofia in Peyia, Paphos as we were so pleased with the service we got before, my partner & I decided to go there again. Nothing really changed - the service we got from David the rep was second to none. He picked us up from Paphos airport on time, took us to the house, explained where everything was and explained how the satellite television and dvd worked etc. The house was clean as well as the pool. There was clean sheets and towels on the beds. We do not understand some of the bad comments left by some renters - very baffling! The only downside (still) was the unfinished building opposite the villa - apparently the developer (not the same as the owner's developer) went bankrupt so did not finish the project. Anyway at least the area was peaceful with no 'nosey' neighbours looking at us especially when we went skinny dipping - the villa was very private. I noticed some reviewers commented on the overgrown hedge but we found this to be a blessing in disguise as we did not want to be watched! Anyway it was a good and pleasant holiday and we will be back again next year if villa Sofia is still available. Thanks.

“Relaxing holiday”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at the villa for 3 nights 4 days,it was very quiet and relaxing and the pool was amazing and cool for the hot summer days! We would stay again,however there were only 3 bad things with the villa, in the downstairs bathroom there was a big amount of mould in the shower and had to shower upstairs,and also there were cobwebs and spiders on the wall and in the living room,we called Dave the rep to come and see for himself and he said he would take care of it,he was extremely helpfull and even came and changed the lights tha werent working outside for he pool and the outside lamp so we could sit out at night. He was a great help and made us feel very welcome. Would stay again :)

Thank you for staying at villa Sofia. Our previous cleaning company which we contracted the work out to left Cyprus and returned back to the UK so I used another cleaning company and unfortunately it appeared on this occasion they did not quite clean the bathroom and the walls/ceiling of some cobwebs. So I am using another company so hopefully 3rd time lucky! I am striving for perfection so your comments have been noted and improvements already made. Finally thank you for your 4 star review and hopefully you will return again next year. Regards, Mr Basu (owner.)

“A relaxing holiday!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at the villa last August for eleven nights. We found the villa very clean and welcoming. There was a welcome pack that consisted of all the essentials we needed. The manager that looked after the villa was very helpful, we had to contact him a couple of times for information but he was more than helpful. Yes the furniture is not that modern but it was clean, everything worked. You do need a car unless you are going to get a cab everywhere but it isn't that far to the seafront and we wanted to go the the water park as well. We would definitely go back there again. They were building at the side when we left so would like to see what it looks like now.

Very strange as this particular tenant texted me a few days after arriving to say how good the house was and how clean the pool was. But after reading the previous tenant's review about me offering a free week to them I think they wanted the same but i refused so they made a bad comment. Making up stories like settee was sticky - maybe they dropped orange juice on it and hence wanted a free week? Ironical how some of these people call me all times of the day including texting me at midnight and i still answer their messages when other landlords do not bother. People who have very little to do but critise should pay the going rate of £600 - £800 per week in July and not £300 pw and expect the same standards. 12 previous 'professional' tenants who stayed at the house did not complain because they knew the price they paid was a bargain and went to the beach to enjoy themselves in Cyprus rather than stay indoors picking faults. £75 pw per person in a detached villa in July wheareas a 3 star hotels charge £30 per person per night = £210 pppw and that is without a private pool = no contest! The price includes airconditioning and electric. Also the outside table was not 'wobbly' - I was there after this tenant left. Make your own conclusions! Future tenants 'mental' state will be analysed by psychological profiling before renting out this villa as damaging comments like this can seriously harm the rental income and the ability to pay the mortgage.

From Dave the owner. In response to the above points the last renter left I would like to say the following:(1) From the outset the renter was advised that a car was essential as the villa was not that close to the shops and it would take a relatively fit person 10 mins to walk to the nearest shops. The renter was merely trying to save money on not renting a car. (2) Many renters previously commented on the furniture in the villa was of good quality (solid oak.) So if this renter preferred a modern look i cannot change all the furniture to please each individual taste! (3)There was a dishwasher there but because it broke we could not change it in time before this renter came in. (4) There was a t.v.+ dvd in the main ensuite bedroom and satellite t.v. in the main lounge. In the other two bedrooms there were t.v. but no dvd. Since there were only two persons here why would they fuss over not having dvd + satellite in the other bedrooms - as long as they got what they asked for in the main bedroom then that should have been ok I would have thought? (5) The cleaner unfortunately did not turn up after the last renter left and my manager's wife was conceiving their first baby in hospital at that time so unfortunately some of the linen and towels did not get cleaned but my rep came round the very next day and rectified all this by bringing in fresh bedsheets, towels etc. He even went out of his way despite having their first baby the day before this particular tenant came into the villa to help them with their shopping, take them sightseeing with NO COST to the renter - this was above his call of duty. So for one whole week he did many free services for them. I am only renting the villa not a free sightseeing and shopping package! I even offered 1 week free rental of the villa (which I will NOT do again for any future renter) to compensate for their 'bad feelings'. I do not think any landlord in the whole of Paphos would have given these ungrateful tenants so many free services especially as all the faults were rectified within 3 days of them moving in! I never had such complaints from any other tenants - I even had Chris King (the Elvis impersonator) who does gigs all round Cyprus and is very famous there stay in my villa for 18 months and commented on how good the house was - he even invited other actors/actresses to the villa who also commented on the quaint nature of the house. In short one cannot satisfy everyone and if a renter wanted a 5 star villa they should pay a 5 star price like £800 a week and not expect the same quality from a £300 per week villa but i believe we did give these particular tenants a 5 star service without charges and they should have been grateful that my rep took them everywhere free of charge to satisfy them due to the previous shortcomings. On a final note regarding the photos of the house the only difference being the hedge surrounding the house has grown to give more privacy to the tenants which is better than having a too open area for others to 'peer' in.
