Cypress Villas - Reader Reports & Opinion

The Cypress 193 villa comfortably housed our group of 10 people for the week we stayed. The overall standard of the house, pool and outdoor area is excellent. All bedrooms are of comfortable size and have A/C and en-suite bathrooms. There are two additional restrooms, one next to the living area and one by the pool.The kitchen and living area is spacious even for ten people, and well equipped.
The housekeeper was very friendly and came to the house every day except Sunday. The pool was also cleaned during our stay.
The pool and outdoor sitting area is placed along side the villa and surrounded by a small garden. Apart from the other identical Cypress villa (Cypress 194) which shares the small garden, the outdoor area is quite private and screened from the neighboring villas by trees and hedges. The pool's proximity to the house might be an issue if you are staying with small children (we were not). The deck also has sun beds and a gas barbecue. The driveway has room for two cars.
The villa's location in Bon Accord is excellent, with shops and restaurants just 5 min walk away, and beaches just 15 min walk. You can rent bicycles, scooters, or taxis for transportation in the local area, but for exploring the island you'll need a car.
I have no problem recommending Cypress 193 to any group or family up to 10 persons!
I booked the villa through Caribbean Estates, and apart from an initial lack of reply on email, the booking process and refund of safety deposit went without problems.

My family and i decided to stay at stayed at Cypress Villa 193 for our family vacation, we realized this was the best decision to make because we felt right at home but at the same time it was definitely a luxurious vacation.The pool was very private and always kept clean ,bedrooms all have AC unit for your comfort, kitchen fully equipped with all the utensils for a super-sized family like mine and the location was accessible. We surely enjoyed our stay at he Cypress Villa and thats our place to stay from now.

Stayed at the villa four days. The housekeeper came only once and swept the living room area. Had to do house cleaning ourselves, didnt even have a proper broom to sweep with. Kitchen appliances are out dated. Refrigerator was not cooling properly, it was not making ice, The stove had a missing knob to operate, the dishwasher leaked so there was always water on the floor. No proper kitchen utensils, rolling pin missed a handle. Overall it was very disappointing. Too much to name.

Home away from home!
We stayed at the 5 -bedroom villa, a party of eleven - 7 were students fresh out of writing exams and ready to have fun.
From the moment the door opened, we all felt the comfort of home.
Everything we needed was provided. Just had to pack our groceries into the cupboards and start liming. The Pool was first stop of course.
Took us five minutes to reach the House of Pancakes - (unfortunately it was always closed) less than ten minutes to reach Store Bay for our Jet ski ride and Buccoo Reef tour - walking.
Totally satisfied during our four day stay.

We stayed at Barton Villas, now known as Cyprus, and our stay could not have been better. We rented both villas that are facing each other because we had a large group of 17 people. Each room had their own bathroom, everything was incredibly clean, the pools were wonderful, it was very quiet. Full, large kitchens where we cooked most of our meals. I cannot say enough about how perfect these villas were for us. They were perfectly located for Store Bay, and a little bit of a walk to Pigeon Point, but that can only be expected b/c the driveway to Pigeon Point is so long itself. Each room was air conditioned and really sound proof so great for privacy. Even though we traveled with so many people, the lot was very large to accomodate all of us and not feel like we were on top of each other. I would 100% go back to these villas. The staff was wonderful, met us at the airport and made sure we were completely settled and comfortable.
The only bad thing that I could say is that the curtains on the windows block very, very little light in the mornings and that makes it very difficult to sleep in. Maybe bring dark towels to drape over the windows to block some light. With a large group, def def consider visiting these villas!!!!
