About Bev Willstrop

My name is Bev and I live with my partner in Reigate, Surrey. I have worked for the Court Service for over 30 years after graduating in law from Sheffield University. I have a keen interest in interior design and have taken a number of part time courses to increase my knowledge. I have assisted a number of friends in Cyprus and the UK with the design and furnishing of their properties and would like to pursue this further after I retire when I hope to spend at least half the year at the villa. I am always so pleased when guests tell me how much they have enjoyed their holiday at the villa - many return year after year.

Bev Willstrop purchased this villa in 2003

Why Bev Willstrop chose Paphos & Suburbs

I fell in love with Cyprus and with Secret Valley where my villa is located in 2003. The Cypriots are warm and friendly and the country has so much to offer both socially and culturally. To me Secret Valley is a magical place with dramatic sea and mountain views from all sides. Its extremely peaceful and secluded but at the same time close at hand to all the facilities you might want when on holiday if you can drag yourself away from the pool. Aphrodite Hills with its bars, restaurants, shops, health spa and sports facilities is literally next door and less than a 5 mins drive.

What makes this villa unique

I spend all my holidays at the villa and it is very much my second home. I have furnished and equipped it to a very high standard and my interest in interior design has been extremely useful in getting the right feel of spaciousness and light. The villa is much larger than an average 3 bed and is on a large plot which, with the now mature hedges, gives perfect privacy and seclusion. I am always looking at ways to improve the facilities when I can and in recent years have installed pool heating for guests staying in the cooler months and a wood burner. I have a new TV system with all major UK channels and automatic recording of all programmes during the past 5 days. Unusually for Cyprus I have high speed wi-fi - so important in today's world and there is a high quality i-pod dock. In 2016 the villa was redecorated throughout and an upgraded kitchen installed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'A truly wonderful setting and a hassle-free holiday' Just to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, and I have to say the villa was fantastic, the accommodation, the position everything was just great’ – Mr & Mrs St John



From start to finish all aspects of our booking were accurate and attentive. The villa is 100% genuine and as described in the advert. Very spacious with a high quality finish and top of the range appliances. The kids loved having wi-fi to keep them in gadget world! The heated pool is the icing on the cake and kept a perfect consistent temperature. You could not use a non-heated pool at this time of year, tried it twice before in other villas and failed, so well worth the extra few pounds. The kids were in the water morning, noon & night leaving the adults reading and chilling for hours on end - Result!! Will definitely return

‘Yes we certainly did enjoy our holiday. Your villa was the highlight of it! You have missed nothing."

Lovely villa in beautiful and quite surroundings

  • 4 of 5

This villa is just what it says on the tin . Unlike some villa's which clearly have photo's taken with fish eye cameras to make them look larger this is exactly as it looks. It is spacious, clean, quiet, well equipped and has lovely views with a good sized pool which was cleaned twice during the week we stayed by a very polite and friendly pool man. As we had a car it was the ideal location for us with a few small villages quite close by and a very good supermarket on the way to Mandra which had much better quality and fresher produce than the Carrefour we initially went to. We enjoyed our trips into Paphos where there is something for everyone we particularly liked Zaza and suite 48.

The welcome pack was very much appreiciated and meant we didn't have to go shopping until the next day. The service provided by the owner was excellent we were allowed to get into the property as soon as we arrived and didn't have to wait until the usual arrival time.

We had a few niggles a broken step leading to the rear garden, a lick of paint in places would of made the villa look fresher. More than 1 umbrella and a fan for each room as the air conditioning only stayed on for 2 hours at a time. ( maybe not usually an issue but in July it made the nights very hot) These things did not detract from the fact this was a very good quality villa and we would stay again and recommend it to friends. We have been to Cyprus many times and wouldn't think twice about returning here !

Highly Recommended villa

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Villa Pelaga for the last two years and have already booked my 2015 stay.

The villa itself it stunning and really spacious, with loads of indoor and outdoor living space. We were six adults and could comfortably fit around either of the dining tables or on the sofas in the living room to watch a movie. We cooked every night at the huge BBQ station but there is also a large and well appointed kicthen which was really handy. The bedrooms are comfortable and well appointed (air conditioning throughout which is a must in high summer), and the huge range of English TV channels was excellent (and would be particularly good for kids). We had no trouble accessing the wifi and the signal was always good.

Location-wise the villa was great for us, being about 10 mins drive away from the gorgeous Pissouri and around 15-20 minutes from both central and Kato Paphos. If you were feeling very brave (and had lathered on plenty of suncream) it is possible to walk to the beach from the villa (just follow the sea view!!) - but far more pleasant to take the 2min drive.

The owner was super attentive and helpful, providing absolutely loads of information on the villa (and how to work all the appliances etc) and the surrounding area, including restaurant reccomendations and details of local events, but she was also contactable via text or email to answer any questions we had.

If you are travelling outside of July-September time I would definitely reccommend the pool heating - it meant we could swim long after sunset and early in the morning which we really aappreciated.

In summary, I can't recommend this villa enough and look forward to returning.

Best Holiday Ever

  • 5 of 5

Great place to go with the whole family, excellent facilities and didn't want to leave. Perfect setting to watch the sun go down every night, or enjoy a glass of vino by the pool. Looking forward to returning 2015.

Even Wifi and movies for the kids to enjoy after a busy day.

Pelaglia

  • 5 of 5

Very briefly as I don't normally write reviews - The Villa was perfect and not overstated from its description, there was everything that you could wish for provided and more, the pool area was great, very private and not overlooked, the neighbouring properties were not close enough to have any impact on your enjoyment, the location is just great, Secret Valley although not having any shops is a beautifully designed development of very individual properties, there are two supermarkets and half a dozen of lovely Taverna's in Kouklia which is only about 3km away. The local Golf Course is championship standard and at the time of my visit has only been reopened for six weeks after substantial development. Bev the owner of Pelaglia was more than helpful and very attentive to our needs, she provided us with contact details for local competitive car hire companies and made our trip as trouble free as possible. We would definitely return, which is not something we would normally consider.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that the guests enjoyed their stay at the villa and would be very pleased if they decide to have another holiday there. The new golf course at Secret Valley is now the best in Cyprus and even boasts 3 floodlight holes for nightime/cooler play.
