“Beautiful apartment”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

If you don't have access to a car then it is quite a walk up to the shops or down to the beach. We hired a car so getting to and from the shops and restaurants was not a problem.

The apartment is excellent and the air conditioning in the bedrooms worked very well.

Communication from the owners throughout booking process was excellent and overall I would highly recommend it if you want to escape from everything.

“Very nice villa”
Reviewed 19 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Had a little trouble finding the villa (we turned right before reaching "Shoppers" so went round the houses to find the right road) but, once there, it was lovely.
Clean and very spacious villa.
We had asked if a hairdryer was provided and were told there was one but couldn't find it on arrival so I emailed the owner. A brand new hair dryer was delivered within a couple of hours! Very pleased with this service.
Didn't see the switch on the outside wall of the laundry room which overrode the washing machine at first but once we spotted this the washing machine worked perfectly.
Didn't realise that Malta has UK style 3 pin sockets so no need for Eurpoean adaptors.
I think a car is necessary at 2km up a hill to nearest shop/restaurant/bus stop (but don't use Goldcar rentals as they gave us a car with a slipping clutch then no-one answered the phone throughout Saturday (rang 22 times) and no-one replied to the message I left on the SOS road side assistance voicemail. Tried to take the car back to airport as couldn't speak to anyone but it broke down on the way. The replacement car promised for Sunday didn't turn up so had to go to airport again on the Monday so wasted 3 days of our holiday - still in dispute with Goldcar about this - plenty of other car hire companies to choose from though).
Would recommend taking washing machine tablets, matches for the gas hob, J cloths and bin liners for the toilet bins (as toilet paper cannot be flushed) to save buying large quantities. Dish washer tablets were in cupboard (may have been left by previous holiday maker).
Overall would recommend the villa to others as Mellieha was a nice town though a bit hilly (especially with a car with a slipping clutch). Also don't forget to set the time of arrival on the "parking disk" inside the car when parking in a timed zone to avoid a parking fine of Euro 23- Goldcar didn't tell us about this either. Grr!

“Highly Recommend this villa”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The villa was clean, comfortable and had a view of the sea from the lounge balcony!! Ideal for a family or couples, the bedrooms have plenty of storage and are so spacious, the en-suites are fantastic & the family bathroom is superb. The pool area is large with plenty of space for the 6 sunbeds, you are not overlooked which is a bonus. The location was very quiet, though it wouldn't be suitable for people with severe disabilities because of the stairs, we would recommend car hire if only for a few days.This isn't our first stay in one of these villa's and it wont be the last. Highly recommend these villa's as the best type of self catering holiday.
We booked our villa through Malta Choice - the easiest way we have ever booked any holiday. Malta Choice arranged everything, the service they provide is first class and we highly recommend them.
