GUEST COMMENTS FROM OUR GUEST BOOK
Stunning Villa With Spectacular Views
Review Submitted: 25 October 2012Date of Stay: October 2012
We took a pensioner and a teenager away with us on holiday and thought we might not be able to please both with our choice of accommodation and location but we should strike lucky with one of them. However, they both loved the villa and location. The owners haven’t shirked on comfort and amenities. The beds are wonderfully comfortable and if you’ve forgotten to bring something from home you’ll probably find it’s already provided. Usually a couple of days before the end of a holiday we are itching to get back home but none of us wanted to leave. It truly is a wonderful relaxing villa in the most spectacular setting we have ever seen. You have a fantastic sea view on one side and beautiful hills on the other. Taking a pensioner and a teenager on holiday could have proved very stressful but it was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had.
Tala Square, which is just a short walk away, has many Taverna’s and restaurants as well as a small shop. You could very easily dispense with a car and just relax at the villa and go down to the square to eat. The menus at the Taverna’s cater to all tastes and we had some truly fabulous meals. Everyone we met were so helpful and friendly and the villa owners are well known to them. So if you drop their name you’ll often get drinks on the house, extra large portion of deserts etc.
On our previous 2 visits to Cyprus we hadn’t had the knowledge of the places to visit and places to eat at other than what the guidebooks tell you. However, the villa owners share with you their and other guests recommendations and we found the most amazing places to visit and eat at that are not advertised. For example we would never have discovered the Last Castle without their recommendation and if you haven’t been there and experienced it you are truly missing a wonderful experience.
We have no hesitation in recommending this villa and once you have experienced it we are sure you would never consider staying anywhere else.
Owner's Response: Thank You for your booking and taking the time to let other guests know about your stay at our villa in Tala.
We love to hear from guests after their trip and we are really pleased you had a great stay and enjoyed the places we reccomended.
We enjoy eating out and cyprus has such a great range of places to eat & visit ,we like to share these experiences as it makes for a special holiday.
Thank You once again and we look forward to being able to help you with future visits to Cyprus.

Fantastic stay at a beautiful place
Review Submitted: 06 October 2012Date of Stay: June 2012
If you are looking for a little piece of heaven then you need look no further than Villa Hunter in Tala. It really is a beautiful place. We visited for one week at the beginning of June and returned happy and relaxed - that's a successful holiday!
The pictures of the villa are good but we were still surprised at how beautiful the villa is. It is spotlessly clean with very stylish modern furnishings and all the conveniences you could expect of a five star residence - sat tv, v good air conditioning throughout including bedrooms, beautiful linen and comfy beds, comfy sofa and dish washer and washing machine. Home from home is right - we did not want for anything and it all looks fantastic and is a pleasure to be in.
The pool and garden were great with lots of flowering plants and carefully tended bushes. It was just so peaceful lying reading a book under an umbrella in the shade with the occasional dip in the pool for exercise! It was really quite easy to do nothing there! However, we did drag ourselves away and it is essential to have a car to get about and see some of the nearby cultural sights and take trips to the beach and buzz of Paphos.
ISome evenings we would just want to stroll in to Tala where we found there were bars and restaurants to visit. Mario's do some mean cocktails and the staff are really, really friendly.
Pete and Jane are the most attentive owners. They were so helpful and really want to make your stay as good as it can be. They gave us lots of info on where to visit and good restaurants to eat at - some you just would not find without their help. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definately visit again. Thank you Pete and Jane for a lovely holiday.
Owner's Response: Thank You very much for your lovely comments.
We work very hard to ensure all our guests are well looked after from the first enquiry right through to the team in cyprus looking after you during your stay.
It is great to get feedback from guests and we are very pleased with all the lovely reviews on the site and in the guest comments book in the villa.
Nothing is ever too much for us to help with during your holidays.
Thank You once again for your booking and it is great that you have already booked early for next year.

5 out of 5Villa Hunter - The Review (That sounds formal)

Review Submitted: November 30, 2009 Date of Stay: August 2009
Peter & Jane,
What can we say? Alison and I had a great two weeks at Villa Hunter. For us it was just what the doctor ordered. All your recommendations were spot on but we have to admit we didn't do all of them. For us a holiday is about doing nothing (mind you Alison would have me walk around every heritage site going if she could), reading laying by the pool or beach, sipping a beer or three and just chilling. This ticked the boxes. We went to the beach a few days but really, the pool at the Villa was so inviting, why bother with all that waiting for the air conditioning in the car to cool it down enough to get in when you can just sit in peace right there.
The villa was immaculate when we arrived, very stylishly decorated and furnished. It had everything we needed, it's very beautiful and you've done a fine job to make it not only feel like a home from home but a very tasteful one at that.
The local restaurants were really good but we saved the best until last, "The Last Castle". What a place!!! We couldn't believe it because we had driven right past it the first week and never saw it. That drive is unbelievable, you just keep going along that beach road (actually more beach than road), when we saw the sign for the restaurant we were shocked because having gone to the beach where the Turtles lay their eggs the week before, we just didn't see it. If you're not looking out for it, you would never know it was there. The food was simple and tasty; the BBQ lamb had a flavour to die for.
We will return soon, we love to travel to different places but for us, this would be a great place to chill for a week and get away from the cold of England. I have told quite a few friends about Villa Hunter so hopefully that will keep you going for the next few years.
Thanks again for all your comments, advice and information on the Villa, Cyprus, directions and everything, it really helped us to settle in quickly and therefore relax, which is what it’s all about.

We spent a delightfull 3 weeks at Villa Hunter during November. The quality of the villa, pool, furnishings and fitments are all first class as are the views and the quiet location.
The villa is within easy reach, would recomend car hire, of numerous shops, taverns and restaurants in the local area. For golfers there are 3 good golf courses, Tsada, Secret Valley and Aphrodite Hills within a 20 min drive varous beaches are also within easy reach.
We would definitely return for another holiday in the villa.
Best 5* Villa ever
Review Submitted: December 1, 2010 Date of Stay: April 2010
WOW... what can i say. this villa is just Fab and having seen other villas and locations in Tala i can see why this has become the most popular in the Paphos area.( to be honest all of Tala is great but this really is the best)
The villa is actually much better than the photos and is in such a lovely quiet location with great uninterupted views over the coast. It really is 5 Star plus with every thing you need with really comfortable beds better than any hotel we have stayed in all , well equiped and such a great design something the owners should be congratulated on and should be proud of. You can tell no expense has been spared in furnishing the villa and it is pure luxury.
When we walked in the villa it was beautifully presented with flowers on the bed and every attention to detail very well thought of.It reminded us of those great hotels in Dubai
The management team who looked after us in cyprus were great and really helped us settle in. The free welcome meeting shows how attentive peter & jane are to ensure that their guests are really well looked after and is a real added bonus that we did not expect.
The heated pool was a real bonus in april as other pools were freezing yet we had a pool that was lovely and warm cleaned twice a week and really made our stay such a real luxury.
The villa is only a short easy 5 mins walk to Tala village square that has some lovely tavernas and a bar which makes for a really nice local cypriot feel. The local people were great to meet and it is obvious that they know the owners well and are always to happy to help.
The Owners were so helpful with our booking providing a great booking service and good advise.Their car hire info saved us loads,while the info they send on e-mail about restuarants and the local area was great and we really enjoyed all there recommendations
Thank you very much for organising such a great holiday for us. No more 5 *hotels for us this villa is much better and also such great value.
We have already booked for 2011 as we are sure it will be sold out again and can't wait to be back.
Thank you from all our family

We would like to take this opportunity to say what a lovely time we had at Villa Hunter. The villa was very clean and tidy and decor very impressive. The views from the pool and bedroom are gorgous.. The location was ideal for Tala square where we spend most nights at Mario's bar and the gorgous restaurants around the square and Tala. We took along our parents with us and our 3 year old daughter whom all had a lovely time, infact I think it is the first holiday my dad has been on that he didn't want to come home.
Many more reviews are in our guest book in the villa and all without exception have had a great stay and enjoyed Tala villa.
