Another incredible holiday with Sundance Villas
Dear Irene Thank you so much once again for a lovely stay in Cyprus. I just thought I’d drop you a line with some thoughts on the villa and area. Feel free to use any of it on your website to help others in deciding. The Argaka Villas are in a small private street just off the coast road between Polis and Pomos. Each villa is set in its own very generous plot, with lawned garden with mature borders and has an excellent, large swimming pool with adjoining paddling pool. You don’t feel overlooked at all and there’s so much space to relax. The tall trees provide shade from the sun in the evening and the patio dining area is shaded for much of the day which can be a welcome relief. The villa is huge, and we found nothing lacking in what was provided - towels, bedding, crockery, pots and pans, and so on. There were even a couple of clothes washing tablets and half a dozen dishwasher tablets - things like that are so often not provided. Upstairs has a huge outside balcony, extending around two sides of the property. A good view of the sunset from here! The owner Savvas visits every day to clean the pool, though he prefers not to disturb his visitors, but it’s well worth making the first move as he is very friendly. We made some use of the air con, just in the bedrooms set at 25° for a few hours at bedtime, just to settle us off. There’s usually a healthy sea breeze from the coast, so we found we could get plenty of air through the villa during the day. The local beaches are clean, unspoilt and more or less completely undeveloped. This part of the coastline gets some decent waves, but you can however drive to Pomos where the harbour wall provides the calmer waters. Santa Barbara beach bar (7 minute walk) provides beach loungers and umbrellas free of charge (and some excellent food and drink) and there’s good beachside facilities at Fly Again pub in the other direction. We would heartily recommend Santa Barbara (book if you want a table at sunset). This popular beachside taverna offers all the traditional grills and oven baked meals like Kleftiko, plus pastas, salads and burgers. There is some fish on offer, but the menu was honest in stating which was frozen and which was fresh. The new Pas To Kima kebab restaurant in Argaka was excellent - informal, simple but spotlessly clean and clearly popular with locals. Delicious charcoal cooked kebabs, wraps, sheftalia and some specials. We would also recommend Coast Taverna in Argaka - the talented cook Elizabeth tours the tables when she can to make sure her customers are happy with her food - we certainly were. Sadly Liza’s Place seems to be currently closed. There are so many good reviews of the restaurant but talk on the Internet is of a need for her to be away this season, so we hope to try it next time. We hired a boat for the afternoon from Latchi Watersports Centre. Having never driven a boat before, I was a little apprehensive but they were so professional and offered as much tutoring as we felt necessary before piloting us out of the harbour and leaving us to it. The support vessel visited us to check we were ok and we were always in radio contact should we need help with anything. They met us outside the harbour at our return to pilot us back in. It was wonderful to be out on the sea and visit the coves and beaches at our leisure. Some fantastic snorkelling opportunities (gear provided) and a 15% discount for Sundance customers! Car hire for Argaka is well worth it. There are plenty of petrol stations, many open 24 hours. The local town of Polis is probably where you’d do most of your shopping but there are a couple of local shops and bakeries in Argaka. Latchi is pretty for harbour side eating and water sports activities. Pomos is a pretty little harbour with an excellent fish restaurant and small sheltered beaches. Paphos is the nearest and best place for high street shopping. Once again, an incredible holiday in Cyprus - thank you so much. David Croxson
Totally recommended! We have never stayed in a cleaner villa
Hi Irene Thanks very much for organising the extended day at Argaka. We really enjoyed it there and would say we have never stayed in a cleaner villa. We would certainly recommend it. Kind regards Martin and Helen Bluemel
The house was as you described and even more. All the things to play with in the pool and the children toys in the house were great!
Dear Irene, Last week we had a great holiday at Argaka at Cyprus. The house was as you described and even more. All the things to play with in the pool and the children toys in the house were great. The hospitality of the owner and his family as well. My family and I were very pleased with everything in the villa and the area. So we had family time at its best. Thank you for the bottle of wine; we toasted for this great week and my birthday. The dishwasher didn't work... the owner responded very quick and they came in to repair, but it didn't help so they put in a brand new one. Thanks for all your concern and help and maybe till next time. Kinds regards, Ria Feiken
Villa was perfect and suitable for families with kids
Hello Irene, We had a lovely holiday in May. Argaka Coast villa was perfect, we enjoyed the beach and the restaurants in the walking distance from the villa. The kids loved the pool, especially the small one). The garden is mature and well-kept, and the tall palm trees give shade and shelter. The dining area outside is very well-organised, being in the shade in the morning and early afternoon for breakfast and lunch. Also this place is very quiet, and very suitable for families with kids. So thank you very much again, we are thinking about coming back! Alexandra K
The villa was perfect. It has everything to offer. Your service was first class, prompt, precise and professional throughout.
The villa was big enough for 5 of us with plenty of sun and shade for those that want it. The kiddies pool is an added bonus. There are plenty of excellent tavernas within close proximity. It is away from the madding crowd but within easy reach of Polis and Latchi if you want a resort. We stayed in the villa all week - it was that perfect. The photos do not do it justice but it is exactly like the photos, spotlessly clean with lots of room and every modern convenience you could want. The kids loved the wifi and the access to the computer was an added extra. We did not have any problems during our stay. We highly recommend this villa with one word - PERFECT!! From our enquiry through to being on holiday, the service was first class, prompt, precise and professional throughout. Even the directions were precise so we did not get lost when arriving in the dark! Gough family
Wonderful stay at the Argaka villa, the house had everything we needed and more, and the hamper was appreciated
Dear Irene, We had a wonderful stay at the Argaka villa, the house had everything we needed and more. We especially enjoyed the pool, the pool-table and the nice terrace/ balcony. The food hamper was there and it was nice not to have to go out finding a supermarket straight after we arrived. Of Cyprus we best liked the Aphrodite trail - at this time of the year (April) it was wonderful to see all the spring plants. We also liked Lefkosia, especially the northern part with nice garden restaurants. Nicole was very nice and helpful, she sent us an SMS with a tour offering, we couldn't go but it sounded nice. Our landlord was also very nice and helpful. Thank you very much! Have a nice week - kind regards - Tanja Strecker-von Kannen
Wonderful holidayâ?¦ I felt compelled to write you a personal email about the great experience we had booking through Sundance Villas
Dear Irene, I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for a wonderful holiday. The villa was much better than I expected and the owners even thought of the little things like children’s toys, swimming bands and other pool gadgets. The family was also a real pleasure, dealing with any issues and queries very promptly. As you know it was my mum’s 60th birthday and our stay at the Argaka Bay made it a very special one enjoying some family time. When she received the bottle of wine you sent, she was very touched that you remembered. I have worked in the travel industry as a PR Manager for many years so I am fortunate to have been able to explore many great places and hotels. Therefore, I felt compelled to write you a personal email about the great experience we had booking through Sundance Villas and during our stay in Cyprus. We most certainly know where to go next time we want to travel to Cyprus. Thanks again. Best Wishes, Rianne Ojeh
The best villa we have stayed in to date by far! We would not hesitate to book through Sundance Villas again in the future and would highly recommend you to others.
Dear Irene, Argaka Coast was beautiful, wonderfully well-stocked and immaculately clean. The photos advertising the property on your site were true to form and reality certainly did not disappoint! The best villa we have stayed in to date by far! The children loved the pool and baby splash pool and the kind heartedness of previous tenants meant that our boys had a great selection of inflatables and pool toys to play with. The added bonus of free Wifi, table tennis and pool tables kept us all occupied when needing a break from the beautiful sunshine! We found Argaka to be an excellent base with a pleasant beach, and a handful of restaurants/shops close to hand. Car hire definitely recommended in order to have a wider choice of restaurants, shops etc, but it was so nice to relax at the villa and get away from all the hub-bub when we chose to. A very peaceful resort within easy reach of most places of interest. Tavernas and trips: We loved Liza's Place (literally on the doorstep) and Santa Barbara's on the beach was lovely to sit and watch the sun go down. We also dined at Moustakallis' in Polis (best calamari ever!) and Finikas in Polis. Mylo's was a wonderful experience with great views of the gorge too and there were two lovely fish restaurants in Pomos. Beachwise, we did visit Paphos beach (rather busy), Latsi beach (very nice and great for swimming), Lara bay (wonderful for educating ourselves about the beautiful turtle conservation projects) and the beautiful heart-shaped bay of Kato Pyrgos. We took a trip to the Akamas National Park (arranged via the very helpful and efficient Sundance Rep. Nicole) which was a great day out and worth every penny for the views. One afternoon we drove up into the Troodos Mountains, stopping at the Kykkos Monastery - a wonderful exciting journey, with winding roads and outstanding views. We were absolutely satisfied with the service from Sundance Villas, no complaints whatsoever, thank you. The literature and tips you provided prior to and during our holiday was very useful and much appreciated. The owner, Savvas, was an absolute delight and we looked forward to his visits in the morning! He was helpful and kind and dealt with matters promptly and professionally. Likewise, his wife was wonderfully welcoming and the Sundance Villas welcome pack on arrival was SO appreciated. We would not hesitate to book through Sundance Villas again in the future and would highly recommend you to others. Best wishes and many thanks Lindsay & Mark
4th time to Argaka over the past 5 years and this villa, by far, beats them all!
Hi Irene I would just like to mention what a fabulous time my mum and I had whilst staying at Argaka Sands. This is my 4th time I've been to Argaka for my holiday over the past 5 years and this villa, by far, beats them all! The villa was beautiful and of a luxury standard, everything was brand new just as you said it would be. We had such a lovely time that my mum wants to return next year as this was her 1st time to Cyprus and was so impressed. We ate several times at Saint Barbara (Ayia Varvara), a taverna on the beach, and it's only a few minutes’ walk from the villa. The food is outstanding and very reasonable. The fillet steak was so tender and the sea bass is so fresh and cooked perfectly. Would recommend this place to everyone! Once again thanks very much for the rental of the villa Michelle Spicer Sundance Villas repeat client
