About Colin & Chris Davis
We have lived in Essex, England for a number of years and built our own chalet bungalow, on the site of our old bungalow, in 2002. We both taught Physical Education for many years, before Colin managed sports centres and contracts for the probation service; and Chris sold new homes. We are both now retired and both love sport. Chris plays golf and Colin still plays cricket and golf. Previously, we both played badminton. In 2008 we set up a junior section at our local cricket club and now Colin coaches and Chris helps administer a group of over 50 7-16 year olds!
Colin & Chris Davis purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Colin & Chris Davis chose Polis
We searched for an overseas property for a number of years and finally set our hearts on Cyprus in 2006, after considering both Spain and Portugal. Reasons for our decision are the climate, the local food, the culture, the people and the outdoor life. We chose the Polis/Latchi area because it ticks all our boxes and is also fairly unspoilt, there are so many place to visit and has the added benefit of the Akamas National Park close by. The 'Beach House' is our dream location. We enjoy the summer months in the UK and aim to spend most of the winters in Cyprus.
What makes this Villa unique
We are so lucky to have found the Beach House as it is such great place to relax and base to explore the local area. The decision to buy it was immediate. We never tire of the views from our house. It is especially stunning at sunset! The garden is our own design and some of our neighbours have used our ideas.

The Beach House
Lovely little hideaway and so close to the beach !
Really enjoyed our stay
Fantastic little Beach House.
Our holiday in this beach house was probably the best holiday we've ever had abroad. It was perfect. It had everything we could possibly need and more! The Beach was just at the end of the garden, we swam everyday, had some lovely meals outside on the patio, listening to the waves and watching the sun go down. What more can I say, we loved it so much we are going to book it again in the next day or so for next may!
Lovely Beach house in a dream location great for chilling out.
Clean and well appointed in a small low key development.
Would well recommend The Beach House to anyone!
Perfect relaxed holiday
We loved the beach front location and found the villa to have everything we needed and more. Good sized main bedroom, comfortable bed and essential air con.Enjoyed sunbathing on the patio in mid 30,s temps and trips to local resort centres but pleased we booked a hire car which allowed us to explore other parts of the island.Found the owners to be very friendly and helpful throughout. Would have no hesitation in returning.
What a find! An ideal retreat.
A thoughtfully managed pristine retreat in a stunning setting. Every comfort is available right down to the smallest detail.
Get up in the morning, walk down to the beach (a whole 45 seconds!) for a swim.
Back to the villa for some breakfast.
Sit and have a coffee and watch the world go by.
A couple of hours sunbathing …….or maybe just read a book in the shade.
Time for some lunch.
Another couple of hours sunbathing.
Walk down to the beach for an afternoon swim.
Back to the villa for a G&T then time for a shower.
