Villa Laguna At Coral Bay, Cyprus, it has to be said is excellent value at any time of the year. Quite how it happens I don’t know but it is an exceptional bargain when reduced for short notice bookings. So called late availability prices see hundreds knocked off the cost of this three bedroom villa in Cyprus – which sleeps seven at a push across three bedrooms.
Just look at the photographs, not only does it have a landscaped garden area with pond but the grounds while only half an acre provide for a lot of space with aged palm trees that appear to bring history to account. There isn’t much tree cover for shade at the rear of the garden though the villa has a magnificent terrace that runs the entire perimeter of the house.

Being only 1.5 miles from Coral bay, Villa Laguna is much nearer than some other properties that you could stay at and is in an area named Sea Caves, which is one of the most sought after locations to have a luxury villa holiday. At worst it’s a fifteen minute walk to the seaside which with children is still manageable even if they have been out all day.
The villa at Coral Bay does provide seclusion and is accessible via a country lane that does not have frequent traffic. The villa itself is semi open plan with arches separating rooms, except of course the bedrooms which like the rest of the property is illuminated very well by daylight thanks to a generous use of windows and sliding patio door access to terraced areas.
Splendid 3 Bed Coral Bay Villa Laguna
The stature of a manor can usually be foretold by the entrance, quite it’s not Longleat and is a very short driveway with parking for two or three vehicles, with BBQ / grill positioned to the right on the way in.
The owners could have built it at the back but unless you require a scene from a war film with smoke wafting over the lake while under fire from bloated conversation, it wasn’t a bad idea to have a separate area on the side of the house for such chin wag and American Indian smoke signals to converse with the rest of the party at the beach.
While you are not entering the Pearly Gates at the Sea Caves Villa Laguna this will be your little corner of paradise for the duration. A path saddled by two palms invites you into the villa with a large hallway that contains a water closet and cloakroom. You are then further enticed into the Kingdom of Gods and Goddesses and presented with a very tidy kitchen, with the usual appliances.
The kitchen dining area has ample counter space, a six seater dining room table with more light than a Jedi could shake a sabre at. To the rear the terrace is accessible by patio doors which enables two families to break from fasting both inside and on the furnished patio that look out on to the garden. There’s no need to bump elbows here.
Situated adrift of the kitchen is a splendid living room with large comfortable sofas and large screen television, satellite channels and DVD player. Itself with another sliding patio door to the exterior. With this amount of inflows of air it shouldn’t be necessary to operate the ceiling fans unless a very sticky no wind day. Fans preferred over air conditioning for simply cool air circulation as doors no doubt open a lot of the time.
Behind the living room and on the left of the property via a shorter hallway are the three sleeping quarters. The rear bedroom with views over the swimming pool is a twin bed. There is a second twin and a master bedroom with double bed that overlook the gardens at front and left side of Villa Laguna. All rooms have en suite bathrooms. The Master has a sofa bed for a seventh person / child.
It is advertised a six person villa in Coral Bay, Cyprus however and I doubt I am the first to come up with the idea. Should there be seven in your party and privacy is required in the Master Bedroom – well it might… there’s ample sofa space, just don’t tell anyone. The bedrooms are not small and have plenty of light with light fabric curtains. All have air conditioning but if you’re not a fan you can keep the doors and windows open for free flow of air. But for sultry nights it’s available.
Master Bedroom 1, 2: Double bed with sofa bed
Twin bedrooms 3, 4 and 5, 6: Twin beds
Master Bedroom Sofa Bed 7: Sofa bed seventh person could sleep on the sofa in the living room – shhhh.
*All have Air conditioning and en suite bathrooms.
Fitted kitchen, spacious lounge area with plenty of garden furniture on the patio / terrace. A really welcoming home from home and while rest and recuperation is important, what usually attracts holidaymakers to coastal villas in countries with hot climates is the private swimming pool and boy is this one of the better examples.
There are two swimming pools, one for the adults and another for children. The larger of the two measure nine metres which is adequate for butterfly strokes and jumping on top of the lilo but no diving allowed. Villa Laguna has several sun loungers and have sporadic incidences of tiki hut type umbrellas, this aided by a hammock stretching between two palms in an area that does receive some shade during the day – clever eh?
To top it all off there’s a very nice landscaped area with pond where perching early morning with croissant watching the sunrise while talking to the fishes is not out of the question. It’s not a huge villa but the grounds with garden, terraces, pond, front gardens and BBQ beside the drive away make this a really affordable villa holiday in Cyprus, especially with being only 15 minutes walk from the Coral Bay beach, shops and restaurants.
Fun Facts About Cyprus:

The shops like the beach are a 15 to 20 minute walk. It’s not handy if you need a pint of milk early morning but it’s not that bad if you have a 16 year old son who wants to escape to have a cigarette. Being almost the centre of civilisation for nigh on 10,000 years it’s a very good place to get to grips with historic reference with museums and ancient architecture or retreating to the Akamas Peninsula Nature Reserve. There is of course opportunity to snorkel and take in a great many sea based activities.

No. There’s a house maid service once a week so if staying ten days to a fortnight you’re in luck. There are in-villa catering services on the island which your villa representative may be able to inform you about.
An entire professional catering team can visit once or daily, or you can hire a private villa chef to rustle up requested cuisine. It’s a bit of a luxury but it’s an holiday, you could even have the house maid come more regularly at an extra cost. Do you require a Butler? Think about it.
Do I Require A Hire Car At Villa Laguna?
It is not essential to have a hire car. That said, while the beach is a short walk if you wish to take full advantage of Cyprus as an island, it would be very handy to be able to jump in a car to visit Paphos, Limassol and other areas of interest on a whim rather than await a taxi. Even better if you have a designated driver who can assist with getting ‘home’ from the pub at 2am.
Is There A Swimming Pool At The Coral Bay Villa?
Yes, in fact there are two. There is a smaller shallow pool for children so it’s perfect as a family villa holiday. It is also set closer to the property so adults can watch on from the furnished terrace. The larger private swimming pool measures nine metres and has a depth of 2 metres at the deepest end. With sun loungers, hammock and grassy areas to place towels ad lay down, there is enormous opportunity to enjoy the local climate.
How Far Is The Nearest Beach From Villa Laguna?
Granted it’s not a seaside villa, it’s a bit like staying at a caravan site in Clacton distance wise, but easily walk able. There’s a 600 metre beach front awaiting you all though everyone else nearby will also be flocking there too. The villa is far away enough to be not in amongst the crowd but should you wish to be, the beach is a short walk. Great for the children too.
What Is There To Do In Coral Bay?
Lots. All of the Cyprus towns have a night life to speak of, some are simply more generous than others. There remains a Cypriot lifestyle which you may not wish to get accustomed to but enjoyable for a day or two before getting adventurous again.
