Our History

Here at rent private Villas, we like to remember that we were once just a British family Stephen & Sarah with children Chloe & Demby who were fortunate enough in 1999 to own a holiday villa in Naples Florida.  
To help pay the ongoing bills they rented their villa in Naples to families for their holidays, the experience of managing bookings as well as day to day issues dealing with clients renting their home for their vacation they realized they had a passion for the responsibility of ensuring travelers from all over the world enjoyed their vacation at our holiday home.  

In 2004 Stephen & Sarah made a decision to move abroad to offer their young family a better safer way of life they ended up making that decision to move to Ayia Napa in Cyprus. 

They started with a big idea and a small office in Ayia Napa back in 2005 of becoming the largest property management and rental company in Cyprus, they worked relentlessly and invested heavily to fulfill their dream and by 2010 they had achieved it.  
The success of their rental website gave them the idea to offer clients the chance to book villas all over the world not just in Cyprus, but unable to find professional software to operate this, Stephen opened an office in India with 4 programmers working hard to develop software not only as a bespoke villa rental booking agent but also a tool to run the day to day running of a property management company.

This took 2 years to develop and with it the launch of 24 Hour keys a software program designed specifically for property managers to run their business on a day to day basis and to create a network of property managers all over the world offering them a unique platform to advertise globally their portfolios of luxury holiday properties.   

The sad loss of Sarah in 2015 to Cancer was a devastating blow to all who knew her. Sarahs unique compassion, devotion and willingness to help all her clients (friends) will be sorely missed but never forgotten and today the business still runs with the same ethics and commitment as Sarah had developed and cared about so much.

From that single villa in Florida, rent private villas has gone from strength to strength, now offering guests over 40,000 villas and apartments in over 5,000 fabulous destinations across the world with every day more holiday home owners and managers are keen to list their properties with us because of our professional approach, website and track record.  

Our team is now made up of Multi lingual speaking staff based around the world working 7 days a week helping and advising clients to make the best choice for there next vacation all across the world.
Rent private villas are the largest villa holiday specialist in Cyprus and we love what we do. We are proud of our reputation and passion for offering the very best villa holiday experiences.

Our owner since 2005, Stephen Lee together with his children Chloe & Demby provide us and our guests with continued protection and peace of mind, with Sarah's ethos very much still at the centre of everything we do every day !
