“The best holiday we have had”

We lovely our stay at Mariandy 1. The villa is beautiful, clean and comfortable and ideal for us (a couple) and friends (2 adults and 3 children). The pool was great and like swimming in a warm bath. Thank you to Theo's Dad who comes to clean the pool very early (and quietly) in the morning. We had a lovely welcome from Theo and Nikolina when we arrived and apart from us not disarming the alarm properly had no problems at all during our visit. We soon found our way to the nearly Phillipos supermarket which seems to sell everything and what is even better will deliver it for free (and give you a lift as well). Open in summer until 9pm every night including Sundays. We found on our second week that the easiest way to get to Coral Bay Avenue (restaurants) is to walk past Phillipos Supermarket and then take the road on the right where the Sunseakers sign is. This takes you to Coral Bay Avenue and the walk is nearly all level. We also found that the first stop on Coral Bay Avenue is a good place to get off the bus if you have been into Paphos. The alternative is to get off the bus by the beach at Coral Bay but you then have an uphill walk to the villa and there is very little shade. We decided not to hire a car and used the bus - really good every 10 to 15 minutes, air conditioned and only 1.5 euro for each trip. Coral Bay beach is really good and you can hire 2 sunbeds and an umbrella for 7.5 euro for the day - extra sunbeds and 2.5 euro. Toilets and showers are available and there are waiters from the beach bar who will fetch your drinks for you. Sea is very safe at Coral bay and you have to go a long way out before you are out of your depth. We found the left side of the beach was less crowded - take beach shoes as the sand does get painfully hot!

“Excellent family friendly villa in prime location”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I booked this villa for my extended family to stay in for my wedding in Peyia. We also booked the neighbouring Mariandy villa. Both were excellent value and my family were thrilled with the quality of the villas. The beach is only 10 minutes walk away and Coral Bay Avenue around 20 minutes. Phillipos supermarket (the best around) is also only 15 minutes walk or even closer in a hire car!

Communication from the owners and ease of booking throughTrip Advisor were both first rate and I would not hesitate to recommend the Maraindy villas!

“Spacious Villa”
Reviewed 25 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The villa was spacious but seemed to lack any warmth/homely feel to it. We went with a 16 month toddler - it is not toddler friendly! No stair gates & lots of marble stairs to fall on so you need to be on guard constantly.

The owners were lovely & came straight away to sort out any some small issues ie pool needed cleaning, wifi stopped working, toaster & microwave didn't work & not adequate cooking utensils. These were all rectified immediately - great service.

For a large family/group of friends this villa is ideal & not far to walk to the beach, shops & restaurants. Great location, lovely views & citrus trees in the garden.

“Excellent definately coming back”

I visited Mariandy 2 last year and I really really liked it so this year I chose the same owners and stayed at Mariandy 1 and I have to say I was equally pleased. The owners were very good they told us if there was anything we needed to give them a shout but fortunately we didnt have to. The house is modern with all the facilities and a great garden. It is a quite neighborhood but we were close to shops , cafes etc . I am definately coming back

“The villa was spectacular”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 for a stay in September 2013

people found this review helpful

Stayed at villa end of September with 2 young children as well as their grandparents, & was a pleasure start to finish. The villa is a few min walk from Coral Bay Beach & local shops and bars/restaurants, and less than 15 min walk to the center of Coral Bay.
Theo arranged transport from the airport for us which was a great help and reasonable cost. Communication was good throughout & key was easily accessible. The villa was spectacular with modern comforts, lovely furniture. The garden is very well kept with trees like peach, orange, lemon, apple etc. The trees not only give great fruit but also brilliant shade. Theo and Nikolina were extremely helpful and gave by far the best service we have experienced whilst renting holiday villas. I would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return one day.
