We arrived around midnight and first impressions from outside were good, the villa looked huge! Entering the villa on the middle level, the living area was pleasant and the kitchen airy.
However, we had pre-booked the welcome pack which was no-where to be seen. So we went downstairs to check the utilities room, and was greeted by the resident roaches, no food/drinks just a mouldy fridge. Not a good start.
Upstairs theres 3 bedrooms, the double included the ensuite with jetbath which was a nice addition, two twin rooms shared the family bathroom. Please note the safe in the master bedroom is small, fine for passports and cash but nothing else.
After venturing out at 1am for essential supplies we hoped the next day would be better, a call to Chris who's the point of contact highlighted our issues and to his credit he refunded the welcome pack and arranged for the exterminator and plumber to come out as the sewage drain was close to overflowing thanks to some buttplugs a previous guest had flushed away...
With the villa sprayed and 'unplugged' it meant we were finding dead roaches everywhere, with some trying to escape venturing upstairs but it got better toward the end of our stay.
One thing that must be mentioned is bird poop, the birds that nest on the roof crap everywhere. We ended up with hundreds of little solid pellets of poop all around the pool area, once you had swept them away more blew off the roof, if you left it then you're walking in a minefield.
Then there's the 'mature gardens' which include leaf dropping trees... On average we would have to clear the pool of leaves 3 times a day!! The pool guy comes every 3 days which is fine but the slightest breeze and your swimming between the poop and the leaves, and walking to avoid the pellets and roaches.
Also the photos on the advert are clearly from when this villa was new and in its prime, the views outside are not greenery and trees but a baron rockery with nothing but a chicken farm in the distance, there's no table / chairs on the upstairs balcony, we had to request an umbrella as there wasn't one there etc.
Finally, there's no iPod docking station, the PS3 doesn't read game discs and half the game boxes were empty anyway, the video library is literally 3 films, the owner leaves his beat up old car parked at the villa by the back door so you have to see it sitting there everyday, the Aircon leaks even if you follow the instructions in the welcome guide, the BBQ had no gas in the tank, watch out for falling blinds when you open them, and if you use the toaster you WILL blow all the electrics and have to go outside to reset.

Would I recommend this villa? No.
The company? Hesitantly.

Hi Richard, thanks for your detailed review. As the villa is located in the countryside it is possible that critters may enter the property. As soon as you notified me of the cockroaches, I immediately arranged pest control to spray the drains (although this was already done 6 weeks prior and is done twice per year), on inspection of the drains we found that there was a blockage. This wasn't causing any problems as yet but if we left it it would've overflowed and we would've had a much bigger problem. The drains were unblocked within a couple of hours and the blockage was a results of guests placing paper down the toilets and fat down the kitchen sinks. Not sure where you got "buttplugs" from, this wasn't even mentioned in conversation, nor was it found in the drain. The villa is situated in the open countryside so a nice breeze is always present which can blow leaves into the pool, this is unavoidable and a net is provided to help ease this.

The photos were taken 2 years ago, the villa will be fully painted this winter (2018) and the pigoen problem fully addressed, we are aware this could be an issue currently and we have taken measures to prevent this.

There is an android box connected which gives access to 1000's of films online and the aircon has now been replaced with a brand new unit.

I wasn't aware of no gas nor the toaster blowing the electrics but this has now been rectified.

Please be informed that villa isn't serviced, you are supposed to clean everything by yourself.
And you definitely need a car to get to the beaches.
There are plenty of nice beaches in 5-10 minutes drive. The large and cheap supermarket is only 3 minutes drive from villa.
The kitchen is large and offers everything what you need (the pans should be changed though:).
Bathrooms and bedrooms are large and clean. And the swimming pool is giant!:) We spent a nice week in the villa.

There are number of drawbacks though:
The villa looks old and needs better maintenance. The owner should hire someone to clean the swimming pool, to take care of grill (the gas was on during one bbq only and stopped flowing due to empty tank, nobody changed it) and lights in the house (half of the lamps were simply absent and couple of remaining ones were burnt out).
There is no garbage bin outside the villa and the owner were unable to answer where we should put our garbage so we ended driving to the town and searching for the large communal bins there.
There are lots of large cockroaches in the kitchen.

So we rented Athena for 8nights at beginning of August 2017 so we could attend a friends wedding during the week. We wanted our own freedom of a Villa and be nearby enough to not be held back in attending all the local festivities and activities. Athena is set a short drive from Naipa and an even shorter drive from Parilimni in a very secluded setting that offers a surprisingly stunning view out front! Lets you excape all the hustle and noise of a built up area, but is accesible with a vehicle. * Shops are a two min drive on a straight road. ** For any Brits, Maccies deliver and is a four min drive! ***Taxis seat seven and will charge a flat rate of €15 in the day and €18 in the eve, which is annoying as it would definately be cheaper with a mater on, but you try finding a taxi with a meter in.

*** You will most definately want a vehicle, booking in advance on Rental Cars saved us a small fortune and for the eight days we got a car (Kia Rio) for £260 (fully covered) ***

The Villa is what you see in the images, was very very clean inside the villa and out. Very spacious living area/kitchen. Bedrooms were fine, the master bedroom w/ its ensuite and jet bath is amazing! The pool is amazing, always good temp to dive in! Big enough for games, lights up beautifully on an eve for a skinny dip! Garden has a plenty of tanning area and in the later hours just take the lounger onto the drive for that extra tanning time! Offers great privacy out the rear! The air conditioning was perfect, keep the doors shut for maximum effect during the day! Odd thing to note but what some may find handy, party of five and we wasn't bitten once all week! No problem with bugs/flies etc. We had three regular large red dragon flies named Neil, Nigel and Nobby which were our pool mascots!
Cockroaches were sighted outside and we had one brave visitor in our sink but in a country like cyprus all is expected, just keep your plugs in!

Complaints to be picking would be that; bird droppings and AC leaks make the floor slightly unveiwing in the rear garden, once cleaned by ourselves this wasn't an issue. The Dishwasher didn't work at all. The BBQ wasn't amazing to look at and needed a clean, but she gets the job done and comes with everything you need to have a succesful cookout. There are only four working sunbeds, in a villa that has four singles and a double bed i found that this could be an issue for a larger group.

Honestly, settling into the Villa was easy and it was a great stay! The inside space, the pool, the quiet, the freedom made our holiday great! I would definately reccomend!

In villa Athena we spend 11 most fantastic days.

Whole villa is very well equipped. All bedrooms are large, clean with plenty space for clothes and suitcases. Especially master bedroom with en suite and bubble bath. Large fridge-freezer, washing machine, and dishwasher are working perfectly and can be used anytime you need.

Both double bedrooms are also spacious with plenty of room for your clothes and suitcases. In every bedroom, kitchen and living room is fantastically working aircon without would be quite difficult to spend evenings inside taking into consideration temperatures outside.

Huge living room with very comfy sofas, big telly and endless amount of games for kids, adults and whole family. Thankfully, double glazed windows has been protecting neighbours while we have had karaoke night :) lol
Outside, there is a beautiful garden with tropical trees and bushes, sunbeds, garden table for 8 plus chairs. Gas grill, shower and of course, fantastic swimming pool.

The only minuses we found while being there are:
- lack of information of changed PIN to the key locker while we arrived (but one quick phone to Christoper has fixed it immediately - make sure you have got Chris's phone number saved in your mobile!) ;
- lack of toilet anywhere near swimming pool (laundry room would be perfect for a toilet) ;
- lack of extra spare key locker just in case you lock yourself outside, including information of an emergency phone numbers (next to the garage entrance for example).

Basically, villa Athena is absolutely great place for holidays. For either family or friends holidays and is very highly recommended. Already we are planning to come back next year.

Everything about Villa Icarus was amazing - id done a lot of homework before booking but even i didnt expect such a fantastic place, everything had been thought of. The location of the villa meant Ayia Napa or Protaras was only a few minutes drive so access to beaches, watersports, waterpark, fair and restaurants was brilliant. The villa has everything a family could want or need and the large pool and outside space is just the icing on the cake. The car was a great touch and the airport transfers arranged through the villa agents took all the worry away. Excellent all round and id definately recommend to family and friends. M Workman
