Everything you need to know about your villa
Welcome to your Villa!
Here we will provide you with a step by step guide to easily access your Cyprus Villa Retreats holiday villa, and get you settled in as smoothly and quickly as possible. Feel free to return to this page to review information as needed.
Please watch these videos, to get to know your villa.
Arrival & Entering your villa
Be sure to have your key box code with you.
Please look after the keys carefully and leave them in the lock box when you are not in the villa.
Always scramble the numbers of the lock box, even when it is empty.
Start your holiday
All of our villas are equipped with everything you need to get started. Please refer to the Villa Handbook for specific information about your villa.
Using your villas electrics
Cyprus has some unusual electric habits, if you are not used to it. Power tripping/outages and waiting for hot water on cloudy days are simply a way of life here.
Please watch this video carefully to make your Holiday a trouble free one. If you still cannot get hot water or power, please let us know!
Hot Water and Showering
Sunny Cyprus has solar panels that heat your hot water on a constant basis. If it is a particularly cloudy or rainy day, you need to use the Electric Water Heater for your hot water.
Even on sunny days, if you have run out of hot water from the tank, you may need to boost a bit for the next tank full.
There are many taxi companies you can use. Ask how much your journey will cost before you are taken to your destination.
We highly recommend Robert's Taxi Services (he knows where all our villas are and is priced very well). Please contact him directly:

Tel: +357 99 803459
WhattsApp +357 99 803459
We can recommend U2 Car Hire located in Coral Bay. They can deliver the car to the villa and you can drive the car to the airport on your departure and leave it there, or they come and pick it up from the villa again. They will handle all paperwork and payment when they drop the car off at your villa.
Please send them an e-mail and inform them which dates you like the car + what kind of car you prefer (automatic, manual, 4 - seater). They will then send you a competitive quote and you can decide!
