Finding a Vacation Home
You will have to choose your accommodation, no matter where you want to visit in Cyprus. There are two broad options. Either you have to rent Cyprus villas, or you must stay in a traditional hotel. Consider all the pros and cons before deciding. That is the only way you can be sure of making the right decision.
Why a Hotel Is Not the Best Option
Many tourists who have visited Cyprus complain about the restrictions in Cypriot hotels and their high cost. You may not want to abide by these restrictions When you want to truly enjoy your vacation and spend a relaxing time on a Mediterranean island. And naturally, you don’t want to pay so much for rooms in 3 or 4-star hotels. Especially if there is a great alternative, like renting a villa by the sea, where not only comes cheaper, but there are no restrictions as well.
Why Rent a Villa?
Here are the main reasons why it is always best to rent a private villa in Cyprus.
Value for money – You get much more value for money in a villa. A hotel just gives you a bedroom and en-suite bathroom. The villa bedrooms are not only bigger, but you will also get more personal space. There are living and dining spaces, your own kitchen, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, lawn, garden. All amenities are just for you.
Personal time – You don’t have to adjust to the hotel's working hours. A villa is like your home away from home. You can do whatever you want, whenever you want. You can even extend your vacation if you want.
Best for a large group – A villa will be particularly good if you are traveling with a large group, like a family. The average area of a Cypriot villa is about 150 sq. meters. Often, they are detached houses where you will have complete privacy. Also, hotels cannot accommodate everyone together. All of you will not even stay on the same floor.
The cost of renting a villa per person is also going to be much cheaper than paying for a hotel room.
Food – When you stay at a hotel, you can only eat the foods available in the restaurant menu. The food served in many of these places is often unhealthy and it is also not fresh. You will find a wide range of products at the many shops in Cyprus. You can buy and cook whatever you like in a villa. Don’t want to cook on a holiday? You will find professional chefs in many Cypriot villas. There are also mane cafes and restaurants nearby.
Facilities – Villas offer many facilities, like a landscaped garden, private swimming pool, games, Jacuzzi, spa, satellite television, library, and appliances in the kitchen.
How and Where to Find a Cheap Villa by the Sea?
You can book a villa in Cyprus directly. You will always save money when you book directly. That’s because, intermediary services like online booking engines, travel agents, and real estate companies that you find from a search engine will always overprice their inventories.
First, decide on your budget. You can then look to find a property that will be right for you. Forums are also good, because here, you can meet real owners of the villas. They will offer you more affordable prices. Rental from the owner is usually the cheapest.
Before You Go
