A well equipped, stylishly furnished 2 bed terraced villa, on a quiet, small development. Large pool. Beach, shops and restaurants in walking distance. FREE WIFI & UK TV
Just a small selection from our reviews: Been at the villa 5 times and love it, just like home from home. Everything is provided to a high standard, location is great, shops, bars, restaurants not too far away. We will definitely be back. Mick and Liz
We can honestly say we wish we could have stayed longer we liked it so much. Sylvia
Excellent value, spotlessly clean and accurately described with a home from home feel to it, without doubt, we will be returning sometime in the future. Phillip
This is our 2nd visit to Aurora Villa and we will definitely be making a third. The villa is very well situated and both the villa and the complex are immaculate. The pool is a great size and the kids loved it. Sue

Hi. Were Stephen & Tina and we very much hope to be hosting your stay in Cyprus. Its a land of sunshine, friendly people (80% of whom speak English), wine and good food. On our first visit, we fell in love with it and this house and development. It was the first property we saw and although we looked at others, the quality of this development shone through. (Pafilia are winners of Jaguar and Mercedes awards for Best Cypriot Development and Property). Ilios 2 opened in 2005 and and we think that this is their best development of 35 apartments and terraced villas/town houses.
Weve had holiday cottages in the UK and prided ourselves in offering quality, highly commended accommodation. Here we wanted a house rather than an apartment, so we were attracted to this terraced villa in a quiet area, which faces the large communal pool. Were only 20 minutes from Paphos airport, but theres little over flying (none at night) and Larnaca Airport is only 1 ½ hours away. The nearest tavernas 6 or 7 minute walk away, the restaurant district and the sea are 15 minutes and the Harbour 20 minutes. Its a level walk to the restaurants, sea and Blue Flag beaches. Whilst a hire car will give you more flexibility, its not essential as a large food supermarket is a 6 minute walk and a general supermarket just 10 minutes away.
Ideally we prefer bookings that start and end on a Saturday , but we try to be flexible and if you need to arrive on a different day, do enquire..
Aurora Villa, A6 Ilios 2
Aurora Villa has two double bedrooms, the master has a KING sized bed and opens onto a balcony with a table and chairs overlooking the pool. The second bedroom has two large single beds and both rooms have large fitted wardrobes, have free air conditioning/heating and ceiling fans (some properties charge extra). Weve invested in quality, comfortable beds linen and towels are provided. We have insect screens on all the major windows, so in the warm weather you can have the windows open without fear of mosquitoes. The bathroom has a bath/shower and a heater for winter stays.
The ground floor is also air conditioned/heated and has an open plan lounge, dining area with Danish designer furniture. Theres satellite TV, DVD player, with DVDs and a radio/CD player with a variety of CDs. Theres also a separate WC/cloakroom on the ground floor (very handy when you have a full house). The lounge opens onto a good sized patio, which faces the large pool and has a table and chairs, ideal for al fresco eating. There are poolside showers and toilets. We have an exceptionally well equipped kitchen with a cooker, 4 ring hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge/freezer and a washing machine, however eating out is cheap and the food delicious, so many people dont bother to cook. Theres also an iron, ironing board and a hairdryer. Cyprus is a low crime area, but for peace of mind, weve also installed a safe for passports and valuables and a security firm regularly visits the complex. We provide a Cypriot pay as you go mobile phone programmed with useful numbers. We've tried to think of everything and make it a non-smoking home from home.
There are loungers and umbrellas by the pool that are always in the sun, but we are also fortunate in having a balcony and a patio that are shaded from around noon, so you can stay outdoors when it gets too hot to sit in the sun and in Cyprus, it does get hot! We have 2 lounger mattresses to make the sun loungers even more comfortable.
Our cleaning company can provide a welcome pack for around €20, hires cots, high chairs and stair gates for nominal sums and we can set this up. We can also arrange a taxi from the airport for €30.
EASY CHECKOUT: If no one is coming in immediately after you and our cleaning company can accommodate a later changeover, youre welcome to stay beyond 10 am, although this might incur a small charge to cover costs. If we have another booking, there are lockable showers, toilets and changing rooms, so you can stay by the pool and shower and change before your flight. If you have a very late flight, our cleaning company can arrange for you to stay in a nearby apartment for €30
Cyprus and Paphos
First of all, travelling around Cyprus is easy as driving is on the left. Also no need for adaptors as the electricity is the same as ours, 240 volts with 13 amp square pin plugs. Theres so much to see and do for all ages swimming, scuba diving, wind surfing, golf, hiking, cycle hire, bowling, skiing and snowboarding. There are water parks, bird parks and animal sanctuaries and you can visit museums, lots of shops, wineries and the huge number of archaeological and historic sites.
Paphos is an attractive, laid back town, and we think it has more restaurants per sq metre than any place on earth and weve yet to have a bad meal in any of them. Whether you want an active or relaxed holiday, in comfortable surroundings, Aurora Villa has everything to offer.
The property was without doubt the best equipped we have ever stayed in. Even to the extent of providing towels for the pool. Simply being asked to return them to the storage area washed and ready for the next guests.
The location meant it was an easy walk into Paphos for dinner, view the sites of antiquity, or whatever else you wished to do.
All in all a very good location and we would not hesitate to return in the future.

Very nice and clean place, good location near touristic area of Paphos, very helpful owner. A perfect little house for our family (2 adults, 2 kids) with a very nice pool.

We cannot praise the whole aurora experience highly enough, from suggested airport pick up, recommended bars and restaurants to the many places of interest. But best of all were the lazy days by the pool soaking up the sun and enjoying the excellent hospitality provided by aurora villa.

All of us had a great time at the villa. It was a home from home with everything you could possibly want. We ate out nearly every night but the kitchen was more than adequately equipped if you wanted to eat in. Thank you for allowing us to stay and this is probably the only place we would all actually return to again. Loved it!!!!!!!!!

Spent 3 weeks in this property Oct/Nov. It was our third holiday in villa Aurora & it was every bit as good as we remembered it from last year.
The villa is lovely & from the minute we arrived we felt at home as the place has everything you need to get you settled straight away.
Large bedrooms with huge wardrobes & lots of drawers, comfortable beds, & lovely furniture. All kept immaculate & clean as is the rest of the villa. Downstairs again comfortable furniture & well equipped kitchen so even if you want to cook in, the equipment is all there for you to use. If you are going out during the day & want to take a packed lunch a cool bag & ice blocks are there for you to use. If you spend the day at the villa plenty of sunbeds & sun shades for you to laze around the pool. The pool & surrounding area are kept immaculate by cleaners that come in very early & security comes regular day & night to make sure no outsiders use the area. All the cleaners & security men really friendly & cheerful. The villa has sun bed mattresses for you to use. A lovely terrace overlooking the pool for you to eat alfresco with table/chairs & sun shade. We hardly used the dining room table & chairs as we ate outside every day even in November. Cannot fault this villa & find that it is very good value. Plenty to see & do around Pathos & if you hire a car easy driving to explore other areas. Cyprus villages very friendly & tavernas welcome you warmly.

This was our second holiday in Aurora Villa or first being last October. We stayed for 3 weeks & loved every minute of it. The Villa is really clean & well equipped & has everything in it to make your stay comfortable & a real home from home. In a quiet setting of villas & apartments formed in a square around a central swimming pool. Pool & surrounding areas are kept very clean & security is very good with patrols frequently 24/7. Pool towels are provided by the owner & also sun bed mattresses which you can use on the plentiful sunbeds in pool area, which is just a few steps from your own private terrace. All rooms in villa are well furnished with large bedrooms with comfortable beds & lots of storage space. About 20 mins walk to the seafront & harbour with so many restaurants you are spoilt for choice. If you want to eat in, shops are within easy walking distance. The harbour has an old fort to explore & a wonderful archeological site with great mosaics & amphitheatre. If like us you hire a car so much to see & do in Cyprus. Driving is easy & roads are not crowded. Aurora Villa is great value for money & we can highly recommend a stay there.

About the owner
I was a social worker for over 40 years and am now semi retired. Tina also worked in Social Services and then ran a small holiday cottage business we had. Mentally we feel mid-thirties and think this is reflected in our love of modern style within the house. When we undertake any project, we like to do it well, so we are passionate about offering an excellent service to our guests and this is reflected in the reviews weve had from our guests.
