Villa Mara is a contemporary villa with pool, air-con and Wi-Fi internet. Quiet location within 200m of the sea. Walk to beaches, cliff top bars, restaurants, convenience store and Grecian Park Hotel
Villa Mara is a light, bright villa, completed in 2009, and furnished in a contemporary style. It sleeps up to 6 adults with room for 2 cot beds (one included) and is in a quiet location a few minutes walk from the beaches and restaurants of the highly sought after Cape Greko area of Protaras, the home of Konnos Bay beach and the Grecian Park Hotel. The local area is primarily residential and is popular with tourists as well as Cypriots (I am told that a number of local celebrities own homes in the area).
The rental price is fully inclusive of private pool (cleaned twice per week in summer), sun loungers, air-conditioning, Wi-fi internet access, satellite TV, CD/DVD player, Xbox 360 games console, iPod speaker system, outside dining, gas fired barbecue, table tennis table, professionally landscaped garden, bed linen, bath towels and a 24 hour key collection & management service. The open plan layout of the living, dining and kitchen area is modern and relaxing. Complementing this are 3 bedrooms (1 double, 2 twin), a family bathroom, downstairs wet room and pool side shower. Villa Mara is ideal for families, wedding guests and those seeking a little luxury in the sun.
This was our 2nd stay at Villa Mara and it was as good as our last visit. We find the position excellent, close enough to both Protaras and Ayia Napa but in a residential area. The Villa overlooks a farmers field at the back which is lovely, and really does have privacy especially around the pool which is beautiful and the villa has everything we wanted. The owner is a delight to deal with and committed to ensuring guests are happy and enjoy staying in the villa. A fabulous time was had. We would most definitely stay here again.
I have just returned from 13 days at the Villa Mara with my 2 sisters. We all agree that it is a beautiful Villa in a really good location. Its situated more or less equidistant to both Protaras and Ayia Napa.
The standard throughout the villa was excellent, having wi fi was a real plus and the pool was big enough to swim in.
Paula and her partner were really helpful but didnt intrude in any way.
All in all, I have been visiting Cyprus for over 20 years and this Villa was good value for money and exceeded my expectations, the description given in the advert is accurate. I would certainly recommend to friends and would stay there again myself.

A lovely villa.

We stayed at Villa Mara in June 2010 and found it very spacious, with very good amenities, a nice pool, sun all day, good local restaurants and a supermarket nearby.

We visited Villa Mara in May 2010 for ten days and found it an attractive, very well appointed and equipped villa, with comfortable furnishings and a relaxing atmosphere. The terrace/barbecue area provided an excellent place for dining and we especially enjoyed breakfast in the open air each morning in the sunshine. A dip before lunch in the pretty pool area was most welcome.
There were a number of very beautiful bays and beaches nearby and we took a short boat ride from one. We also took a scenic drive to the Troodos mountain area, which being somewhat cooler, was good for easy walking. We enjoyed a number of good, very friendly restaurants, a number of which were within walking distance of the villa which we found so welcome on arrival after our flight. We found interesting towns within easy reach and nearby Agia Napa boasted attractive and good restaurants: we especially liked the family friendly Limanara which is situated on the coastal road.
The owners provided a very useful information sheet before we departed and it was good to find that the local management company was most helpful and really did appear very quickly when needed. Thank you for a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday and we look forward to visiting again next year!

In April 2011 we visited Villa Mara and had a wonderful holiday. The villa is comfortably fitted out for a family and in a great location for beaches, restaurants and other activities.
The directions and other information given in advance meant our journey went smoothly, and the management company was very helpful whilst we were there. We will definitely return to Villa Mara and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. - Katherine, Morgan and Finlay Woods - Marlow, England.
In July 2010 we visited Villa Mara and had a fantastic holiday. The villa is well appointed for a family and in a great location for nearby beaches. The bus stop on the main road (2 mins walk) is ideal for those who wish to get about Cyprus without the use of a hire car.
The management agency is located close by and the staff are very helpful.
We will definitely return to Villa Mara and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Ian Basford, Liza and the girls - Staffordshire, England.
Outside, the private pool (which is cleaned twice per week) has 6 high quality sun loungers and tables for your drinks. On the outside patio, there is a dining table with 6 chairs and a gas fired Outback BBQ. There is also table tennis/ping pong table with 4 paddles for guests to enjoy. There is an outside shower next to the pool which we respectfully request guests to use each time before entering the swimming pool in order to remove excess sweat and sun tan lotion, which discolour the water and promote the growth of algae. The garden has been designed by a landscape gardener and contains plants and flowers typical of the area. An automated irrigation system waters the plants every day. A pair of two way radios with rechargeable batteries is also provided to help keep down those mobile phone bills when your party is split between the swimming pool and nearest beach.
For those with young children, please note that, as is common in Cyprus, there is not any fencing around the pool.
