About Roger Blakemore

Sarah and I own a landscape gardening business and we are based in Waterlooville near Portsmouth in Hampshire. We have been running our business for the last 11 years and it is called Roger & Sarah's gardening services.

We like to spend winter months and if possible the early part of the season in Cyprus which is our second home.

Roger Blakemore purchased this villa in 2005

Why Roger Blakemore chose Famagusta region

We fell in love with the view of the Mediterranean from a mound of earth just behind and to the left of where the pool is for The Haven when it was just a greenfield site, as we bought both of our villas off plan. Buying them off plan was very exciting as it meant we could make changes as to how they would finally look and watch them being built! The fact that they both were large plots of around 500 square metres attracted us as we knew we would have plenty of space once the villas were finished.

We love the fact that we can watch the fishing boats returning in the mornings to the small fishing shelter of Potomos where there are two amazing fish restaurants - the picture of me was taken at the restaurant at the mouth of the estuary where you can virtually touch the sea whilst waiting for your food!

We have made The Haven and Rosara a home from home and they are where our family, friends and ourselves stay when we are in Cyprus.

What makes this villa unique

We have gone the extra mile for both villas and their pools as they are both 10 x 5 metre tiled overflow ones with a Roman Nose with steps leading into the shallow end of 0.80m and with a deep end of 1.5m this makes it a very sociable pool as an adult can walk the full length. It also makes it a very safe pool for children too.

For those alfresco moments there is a large traditional BBQ set in the mature and secluded gardens - there is also a preparation area including a sink.

There are now 3 man made beaches in Ayia Thekla - two of which have little restaurants adjacent to them which make them an ideal place to catch some rays and have some nice food.

The Water Park is 4kms away, the cosmopolitan town of Ayia Napa is 9kms away, Nissi Beach 6kms, Ayia Thekla beaches between 1.5km and 2km and finally Potomos 2kms away. Larnaca airport is a 35 minute journey.

The Haven is located close enough to the vibrant town of Ayia Napa - just a short car journey or taxi ride away, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the villa, its wonderful private pool and all its facilities.

Our amazing stay at Villa Haven

  • 5 of 5

On our arrival and opening the front door of the villa I knew instantly it was like home from home. You could feel the love in the villa and the thought that had gone into every detail and it was kitted out like I would have done myself if I had owned it. The pool was fabulous and the area itself was excellent as it is near to all the places to explore. We stayed for 21 nights and have just returned yesterday the 3rd October and the worst part of all was having to leave it all behind and come home. We were so impressed with everything. Roger has described the Villa exactly as we see it on the Internet, iThe Villa was very clean and the UK TV was fabulous. I will definitely be booking this villa again. You definitely need a car to get the most out of your holiday as it is in a residential place, but Taxi`s are up and down and there is plenty of information in the villa with phone numbers etc.

Fabulous luxury villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most relaxing holiday at The Haven. This is the first time we have rented a villa through Owners Direct and we were very impressed. The layout of the villa was perfect for our family. We have three teenage children so there was so much space for everyone to relax. It was very, very hot during our stay so having our own pool was perfect. The villa was very clean and well maintained and exactly as described. Roger kept in touch right from start when we first enquired about renting the property and also arranged a lift for us from the airport to the villa. We definately recomend this property to anyone who wants a nice and quiet holiday, yet it's close enough to Ayia Napa by car for the nightlife , restaurants and shops. We would definately return to The Haven for another holiday.

Amazing Property In A Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks and had an absolutely amazing time, the Villa is well located in Ayia Thekla - just a short distance from Ayia Napa which is packed of restaurants, a water park, family fun park and plenty of nightlife.

The Villa itself is spacious, extremely comfortable, with an excellent pool and everything you need for a relaxed holiday. A quiet location with friendly locals, the bus service is great and very cheap although I would recommend a car and given they cost about €10 a day to rent this is not a problem!....

There are bars and a small supermarket within walking distance however and there is a beautiful fishing village called Potamos with a couple of great restaurants a few km a way (you can even watch the fishing boats arrive in the morning from terrace on the villa...).

Thanks again Roger, sure we will be back soon,

Gorgeous, comfortable villa with everything you could possibly need.

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived home from 2 weeks at this beautiful villa and we are missing it already. Our first impressions were amazement at the size of the pool, the prettiness of the outside area and the comfort and convenience of the inside of the villa. The owner, Roger, was very communicative when we were booking (our first time through this site- so I was a little nervous) but he couldn't have been more helpful.

The beds were extremely comfortable, the air conditioning was easy and effective and everything that we needed was there. (Including the washing machine- it's the first time I've ever come home without 4 cases of washing!)

I would recommend a car, as it's a short drive to most places, but Ayia Napa, the water park and wonderful Potomus are minutes away.

The pool and surrounding area are well tended and even the neighbours (Britsh ex-pats) are lovely.

This was our first time in a villa rather than an hotel, but we are converted. Such a lovely holiday.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Haven for 2 weeks in august and can honestly say it was absolutely perfect . We were in Cyprus to attend our sons wedding along with other family members so we booked Rogers other villa The Rosara as well .We had such an amazing time the villas are very well equipped both inside and outside . We rarely went out to eat preferring to bbq as there were 12 of us and could eat and drink in a more relaxed way . The villas are in a quiet area but that's what we wanted, preferring to jump in the car if we wanted to venture out .I would recommend hiring a car as it is quite a walk to the nearest shop and it seems even longer walking in the heat . It worked out cheaper to hire a car than using taxis although we did use a great guy called Mario (on Rogers recommendation) to get us to the wedding which was held in the Olympic Lagoon Hotel. If you are looking for a laid back away from it all kind of holiday or if like us theres a big group of you, you wont find better than the Haven and Rosara. Thankyou so much Roger

Car: recommended

The Villa is on a small complex of 17 properties in an area of exceptional natural beauty known as Ayia Thekla, which is located 35 minutes from Larnaca airport, 5 minutes from Ayia Napa and 8 minutes from Proteras on the south east coast of Cyprus. The villa sits back 800 metres from the coastline between the church of Ayia Thekla and the fishing village of Potamos. The location benefits from the gentle sea breeze and has fantastic sea views. Just a few minutes away is the blue flag beach of Ayia Thekla which is a superb sandy beach. Cyprus's largest waterpark is also only a few minutes away and is a great day out for all the family. The nearby towns of Ayia Napa and Proteras are focused on families and couples with plenty to do whatever your interests. There are excellent restaurants and tavernas, with bars, clubs and modern shops. Ayia Napa has a vibrant town square and popular fun fair, with many other activities including water sports and hiking.

Other Activities: go-kart and waterpark.

Golf: The stunning Aphrodite Hills 18 hole Championship Standard golf course designed by Cabell B. Robinson is a 90 minute drive away, so you can take in some of the island's natural beauty on your way to an amazing round of golf. The course, which took five years to make, follows the scenic contours of the two plateaux; its challenging fairways, cutting a swathe through lakes, olive and carob trees - it is no wonder that the course has taken its rightful place amongst the very best the Mediterranean can offer.

Afterwards you can relax in the clubhouse Restaurant which serves a light 5 star a la carte menu.
