The villa has a uniquely designed exterior with decorative stone cladding as a feature and the interior is spacious, well designed and fully equipped. The villa is accessed by a long private driveway with gates that eventually leads to a covered car port.
On entering the villa itself, you immediately sense the modern clean lines and smart design features.

The dining table has high backed leather cushioned chairs with large wooden table seating 6 comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped with fitted units in beach, black granite work surfaces and mosaic tiled splashbacks. Major appliances (in stainless steel colour) include tall fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, oven hob and hood and microwave. A fully tiled cloakroom completes the internal areas of the ground floor.
Access to the upstairs accommodation is gained by a wide and open staircase and landing. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, patio doors to balcony and an en-suite shower room which has a large double cubicle. Sea views can be enjoyed from most windows. The second bedroom is a twin room and shares access to the upstairs balcony which in itself is a prime area of the house with table and chairs and great views to both the Mediterranean sea and surrounding mountains. The third bedroom is also a twin room and has a narrow balcony and views to the mountains in the east. Each bedroom has fitted wardrobes and bedside units.

Winding up through the banana plantations after a short drive along the coast road from Paphos brings you to Peyia where the Villa Stella is located on the hillside overlooking Coral Bay. Peyia is a very typical Cypriot village. A beautiful ancient church forms the heart of the village
while the narrow streets and alleyways are full of old and interesting houses adorned with colourful flowers and citrus trees. The village is still largely unspoilt with lively tavernas and friendly locals. You can also buy all your provisions including fresh meat and bread in the village stores the early morning aroma of freshly baked bread, sweet and savoury local pastries and cakes coming from the Peyia bakery is almost too much to resist!
Things to do in the area include Paphos Bird Park, reptile park, horse riding, Akamas Peninsular & Lara Beach Nature Reserve (famous for turtles), hiking/walking, buggy safaris, 4 x 4 safaris, sea caves area, sailing and many more. Amusement and water parks in Paphos are also easily accessible from Peyia, as are numerous archaeological ruins such as the Tombs of the Kings.
If you want to get out and explore some fantastic scenery, take a trip to the Akamas Peninsula, Polis, Latchi or even Troodos mountains. The Akamas is an untouched part of Cyprus with unspoilt coastline and traditional fish taverns in stunning seaside locations. Troodos is of course the main mountain range in Cyprus, not many people know that in the winter....you can ski!
Paphos combines ancient history with a cosmopolitan, modern tourist resort. The area by the coast is known as Kato Paphos and boasts a pretty little harbour and plenty of open air cafes and bars. Further inland is the old town of Paphos, known by the locals as Ktima. With its narrow streets, hustle and bustle, covered market and typically Cypriot atmosphere, it is well worth a visit. As a consequence, Paphos is on UNESCOs World Cultural Heritage list.
Cyprus is famous as the birth place of the goddess Aphrodite, Venus in Roman mythology. She is known as the Ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty. Legend says that she emerged from the sea at Aphrodite’s Rock in a surge of sea foam.

A lovely property, well situated for Peyia and Coral Bay, very clean and well maintained, lovely pool benefiting from the sun all day long ! not directly overlooked, Close to good supermarkets, would recommend to friends. As with most villas in the area a car is essential, look forward to hopefully going back for another stay !

Nice Villa with a homely atmosphere. Car is a must though. Stayed here in November - Weather was fabulous. Area was quiet as holiday season was drawing to a close.
Enjoyed a relaxing time here.
Many thanks to Gary and Steven for their help during our stay.

Lovely Villa , roomy and all internal fitting are top qulaity. Very handy to have wi-fi and UK TV channels too.
Very private and sun in pool area all dat due to its location with no other properties either side or in front.
Property manager , Louise , was very helpful.
Only downside is that you have to drive / taxi everywhere as all the local amenities are 30 mins + walk away and is very hilly.
Overall an excellant villa.

Aug 09, found villa to be comfortable, clean & well equiped. The pool was lovely & well maintained by Gary. The pool side area was completly private & the views down to the sea were stunning. We hired a car & found that most places were easy to get to with a well stocked supermarket only 5 mins away. Plenty of resturants to cater for all tastes in Pathos or Coral bay. The beach at Coral bay was clean & sandy with plenty of water sports. Over all we had a lovely 2 weeks & would recommend villa stella with its great location & comfort for anyone seeking a relaxing holiday.

We stayed at Villa Stella in June and were extremely happy with the standard. We returned in September and whilst Gary & Louise continue to be extremely helpful and came very speedily to replace light bulbs and gas bottle for bbq, we were very disappointed with the cleanliness of the property this time.  We did pass on this feedback to Gary when he visited. It is such a shame as the property is furnished to a high standard and the cleanliness has let it down Im afraid.
Many thanks for your review. I have spoken to Gary and Louise about some of these issues and would respond as follows:
All the laundry goes to a professional launderette where they use a particular product to remove stains however certain skin/sun products do stain the linen. We can assure you that the linen for this booking came straight from the launderette and was put on the beds, (including the mattress cover). Many apologies. The cleaners hoovered and mopped the floors as usual and we checked the entire villa before your arrival. We do not accept that the floors were dirty. You reported that the A/C not cooling. It was checked and was working perfectly. You insisted on a new gas bottle which Gary swapped, the one in place was only weeks old and is still in use elsewhere now. When Gary came to see you off, he asked for feedback there and then and these issues were raised. Your exact words were I know I am an extremely fussy person but I dont feel it was quite as clean as the last time we stayed. We have had no other complaints regarding cleanliness at any of our villas this year however we must accept any criticism and do our utmost to keep our standards high. Its very disappointing when we get poor feedback from guests as we try very hard to make sure everything is done correctly and we have had no other complaints from guests at this villa. I hope that as you say things will be more to your satisfaction should you return again next year as also discussed on departure. Thanks very much again.

''The villa was superb, very clean, well equipped and very tastefully decorated. The pool and outside areas were also excellent.
The villa was in a great location. We had been concerned prior to arrival that the area may not be as quiet as we like, but although there were surrounding properties the position of the villa meant that it was not overlooked, and we did not feel disturbed at all during the two weeks. The villa was only 5 minutes drive from Peyia centre, and also only 5-10 minutes drive to Coral Bay and the main supermarket, so it was very convenient for amenities.
For food, the Peyia Tavern in Peyia centre was great if you like the traditional Cypriot fare – no menu but the meze was fantastic, and very reasonable. We also enjoyed meals in various restaurants in Coral Bay, namely Lekanto (fabulous meal, plus after dinner entertainment with one of the waiters performing card tricks/magic), Corallo (another delicious meal and friendly staff), and Kambana (wonderful steaks, melted in the mouth!). Regarding sightseeing, we really enjoyed the House of Dionysus in Paphos.
The service provided by you was excellent. You kept us informed all the way through from booking to just prior to our holiday. You offered helpful hints, discount vouchers, always replied to our email queries promptly and efficiently, and after our return processed our deposit refund efficiently. The instructions for finding the villa were also very helpful.
We did not see the owners very often. They greeted us a couple of days after our arrival, and came to service the pool on Mondays and Thursdays. They also came in to clean the villa after one week. They left comprehensive instructions within the villa so did not need to get in touch, but we had their numbers if we had needed them. They were very understanding with regards our departure home (we had a late night flight) and allowed us to remain in the villa until mid afternoon rather than insisting we left by 11:00 – we were very grateful for this.
Everything was excellent. Many thanks for making this such an enjoyable experience.''

As per usual villa stella was in excellent condition beautifully clean and welcoming. The location is perfect for us close to Peyia and coral bay but nice and peaceful. We would recommend Mandra ,The imperial Chinese restaurant, Posidenas to eat in Paphos, Also Chris Andreou in coral bay for a buggy or quad bike safari. The service provided by yourself Steven and your colleagues is excellent and is one of the reasons we book every year. Gary and Louise are very friendly and helpful ,just a really nice couple. You cant improve on perfection. Thank you again Steven for all your correspondence with regards to Villa Stella.

Lovely villa, with everything we needed including wifi. The pool area was great with the sun all day and lovely views of the coast. The location was great, about a 20 minute walk into Peyia (quite uphill) and a 5 minute drive into Coral Bay. Because of the location of the villa the views are uninterrupted and the pool area is not overlooked at all. All restaurants and bars in Peyia, particularly Grande and Vrisi. Imogens in Kathikas is about a 20 minute drive away for lovely meze. Oniro is about 10 minute drive away for lovely views of the sunset. Yes. Booking process was very efficient and our deposit was returned promptly. The local managers were very good. The villa was very clean and the mid-stay clean and linen change was great.

The villa was very nice, well equipped and in a lovely condition. The location had lovely views out to the sea and in easy reach of the town centre. Yiannis in Kathikas serves a great meze and Viklari on the way to Lara Bay has a simple menu (Chicken or Pork) but it is cooked to perfection and with fantastic views.

"The property was amazing, everything you need. The location is superb. We like quiet and out of the way so it suited us perfectly, there is everything you need in Polis which is only a 10 min drive and if you want more its too far to Paphos. There are some lovely restaurants and tavernas in Polis, try Finikas, Moustakallas and Chix Chos, all very good and the staff are very attentive. There are plenty in Latsi too but they are slightly more expensive. Take a drive up the Troodos mountains, the views are spectacular. The service provided by Letsrentonline.com was as usual very good!

"The villa was as good as in previous years - beautifully clean and well equipped. It is very quiet and in an excellent location. We all lead hectic lives and this is an ideal place for all the family to get together and just relax. We spent the day at Latchi which has a beautiful beach. The trip from Peyia is interesting over the winding roads with wonderful scenery. We visited the Last Castle near Peyia for the first time - amazing views and very good reasonably priced food. We also loved Agios Georgious - so pretty and the St Georges restaurant does an excellent fish meze. The Peyia Taverna also an excellent meze of traditional cypriot food. Very satisfied over the three years we have been dealing with LetsRentOnline. Gary and Louise were as helpful as ever - it wss like meeting with old friends. Andy and his taxi also as reliable as ever.
Review submitted by Kerry from Torquay- (Submitted: 07/09/2011)
"We would just like to say what an amazing holiday we had staying at Villa Stella in Peyia, the property was beautiful a real home from home with the most amazing views and everything we could ask for to make it a very special, relaxing break. The location itself was just a short car trip to Coral Bay and Paphos for a lively night/day out with Peyia being quieter but with a few bars and restaurants in which we wiled away many a happy evening. The Last Castle restaurant does a great BBQ lunch with the most spectacular views, a bit of a bumpy road up there but well worth it. Suggest a day in the Troodos Mountains a long drive,I think we took the B road and managed to navigate through some authentic Greek Cypriot villages, but well worth it to see the spectacular countryside. Take a trip into Paphos which has a very pretty harbour area and visit Tomb of the Kings if into archaeology as you can really get close up to see everything. We would like to congratulate you for your very efficient, helpful service. This was the first time we had booked online and I must say you made it an easy process and helped all the way, always returning our emails promptly. The services of the local manager was great, we found him and his wife really friendly and very helpful with suggestions on places to visit and eat etc. The Villa was immaculately presented and very comfortable. We would certainly like to return to Cyprus and would rent the Villa Stella or another of your villas without hesitation. Thanks. Kerry and Dale.

"The property was lovely, everything you would expect from a holiday villa, very spacious, clean and modern with plenty of outside space and not overlooked at all. The location was fine for us. It could be a little remote if you didnt have a car and there isnt really anywhere within reasonable walking distance, but loved Peyia and lovely views too. So many to mention, but we loved the Peyia Tavern in the village for traditional Cypriot food and experience, Saavas grill on a Tuesday for the Greek dancing night, The Grande and The Brewery in Peyia, snack bars but very good. La Vigna the Italian at Coral Bay strip was excellent, all places up at Kathikas - Imogens Inn, Etc. The Last Castle on way out to Lara was lovely, very remote and traditional. We preferred Coralia beach as it was quieter, but the Coral Bay beach has very good waves! All the water sports were very well maintained and organised and well worth doing. The Aphrodite Water Park, good fun family day out. As an agent, you were very informative, excellent directions to property also. Gary & Louise were great too, Gary helped enormously over the lighting problems that we had, and kept pool very well maintained. We hope to book for next year soon.
Great Villa, Great Location. The views were fantastic, the furniture was all good quality and the villa has obviously been designed by someone with talent. Thanks very much. Be back soon.Mark and Sally Bailey, Essex, U.K, May 07
