VILLA FIRM'S ANNUAL RESULTS 70% UP
And Akamas Villas' targets set 40% up for 2013
Luxury villa rental firm Akamas Villas (www.akamas-villas.com) is celebrating a strong January, with bookings on the up.
Bookings for its luxury portfolio of villas in Western Cyprus are currently over 60% up, year on year, for the month of January. And annual bookings for 2012 are 70% up in total, compared to 2011.
This upward trend has inspired a bullish standpoint for Akamas Villas. Founder Martin Maynard has set a total booking target for this year - that is 40% up on bookings of 2012.
Akamas Villas, which looks after 40 private, upscale holiday rentals exclusively in the Akamas Peninsula of West Cyprus, has doubled its portfolio since launching in 2010. And the company is standing steadfast with its challenging sales target, in this period of economic uncertainty.
Founder Martin Maynard explains: "We have set ourselves an ambitious target, but feel confident in securing these bookings - given the rising trend of villa vacations we have experienced over the past two years. Giving a concierge-style service throughout the duration of guests' stays has resulted in much repeat business and recommendations for us. Similarly, working closely with local businesses - and awarding the best - through initiatives such as our Akamas Villas Recognition Awards, has ensured the standard of local amenities remains high for visitors, who get back home and spread the good word".
