About the Owner

We have been taking holidays in the Maltese Islands for 15 years and have our own apartment on Gozo. We felt there was a gap in the market for luxury self catering accommodation and that is what our apartment delivers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a wonderful visit. Your apartment has exceeded ourexpectations, truly one of the best we have ever stayed in. Your attention to details is exceptional. We particularly enjoyed perusing your cookbooks as we love to shop locally and cook in.

AS, Nov-12

This has to be a 5 star holiday holiday apartment. I can't say it's home from home, because it was BETTER than home! Every thing you could think of is provided and to the highest standard. Top marks to the owners for the fast and reliable service in booking and arranging everything. My family had a fantastic holiday. Thank you.

WL, Apr-12

I just wanted to say thank you for the most perfect apartment. Everything was absolutely first rate. Your attention to detail was incredible ... you seem to have thought of and provided everything. We were most grateful for the welcome packs also.

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Large, clean and spacious apartment with great views over the bay. Facilities second to none, welcome pack provided is a very nice touch especially if arriving in the evening. Great access to bus routes. Would not hesitate to stay for any future holiday in Malta.

Up to the usual high standard

  • 5 of 5

The owner has a number of property's and I have stayed in two in Malta. This the latest is another example of the high standards this's owner sets. The appartment has everything and more. Equipped with everything for a family of six even though just my wife and I we enjoyed the space. Every appliance, linens, beach towels beach chairs, sun beds the list goes on. Would be great for young children,high chairs cots baby bath this place has the lot. Add to that a garage, sea views, air con,books,games,DVDs. We learned from past experience and didn't bring basic toiletries as they were contained in the luxuary bags provided which included tooth paste soap shampoo shower gel deodorant razors comb and so many things you don't need to bring. Piling on the joy the not so basic grocery welcome pack means no matter how late you arrive you will more than survive until you can get to the shops.

So now the bad bits, it was only two weeks and it went all too quickly.

Enough about the appartment, the site is great, clean, secure with a great pool if you don't want a five minute walk to the beach. Have breakfast on the balcony overlooking the bay or breakfast in anyone of the great selection of beach bars.

Boat trips,diving and water sports all nearby so if you want adventure or if like us,a bit of culture, and a lot of peace and quiet you will find it here or nearby. Another great holiday

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment located in the scenic bay of Mellieha. The apartment was well looked after, spacious, and clean and tidy. The welcome pack of food was a lovely touch, and a lifesaver when the main supermarkets are closed on a a Sunday. The local agent is on hand to greet you. The Owner is very helpful and happy to answer questions.

In the winter season the apartment and village were nice and quiet. Mainly locals in the village, if you want to see the real Malta.

Nice coastal walks to be enjoyed and worth a trip to the capital Valletta and the new National Aquarium.

We are a group of 5 who came to Malta for a relaxing holiday and to do a some diving in the Maltese waters.

For that purpose it was perfect. Mellieha was a quiet area but had everything you would need for a holiday - restaurants, supermarkets, a few bars and a lovely beach. It's a taxi/bus ride from Bugibba and the livelier Paceville if you want a crazier night out.

The property was not only clean and well maintained but spacious, comfortable and smart. The little touches by the owners made our holiday - the well stocked bookshelf, the welcome pack upon arrival, the kitchen with every appliance/item under the sun, the info pack about the surrounding area, there are just too many to mention.

On reflection I'd say the description online does not do the apartment justice - it was simply sensational. I would have no hesitation recommending this accommodation to anyone.

From the Owner

Our first holidays in Malta were in Mellehia. It has a lovely beach, banks, restaurants, butchers, fishmonger and supermarkets. The local church, perched on the hill is beautiful. Whilst it has everything you need, it hasn't lost any of it's local charm. It is a 45 minute drive from the airport and close to the port and the ferry to Gozo. Places to visit can be reached by a great bus service. The Maltese are friendly, speak English and they drive on the left. Tas Sellum is traffic free making it ideal for children. The view from the shared pool and the apartment is across the bay. Parking can be a problem in Malta but with the development we purchased a garage to overcome this. The garage is right beside the lift, making it easy for disabled visitors.

Activity and Interests


Malta's longest beach at Ghardira Bay is a 20 minute stroll away. Here you will find sunbeds and umbrellas and water sports are available. There is car parking along the beach road. Other beaches like Golden Bay are a short drive away.The Blue Grotto and Marsaxlokk are worth visiting. A short bus or car journey takes you to the port for a ferry crossing to Gozo. Taxis and buses leave Gozo harbour as does the sightseeing bus. The Azure Window, Xlendi and Ramla Bay all have places to eat.


Luqa airport is a 45 minute drive away. A car is recommended for guests with mobility problems if they want to go out and about. The Gozo ferry is a short bus ride away. By car, the journey time is 15 minutes. The ferry crossing is 20 minutes. From Valletta around 45 minutes by car, you can take a trip to Scilly or a sea plane excursion to view the islands from the air. Car hire is not essential but recommended for those with poor mobility.


Bars and restaurants are a 15 minute stroll away. Further eateries can be found up the steep hill a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes by bus; where you will also find banks, supermarkets, butchers, bakers, fishmonger and pharmacies.

Many places can be reached via the Malta sightseeing bus which offers a hop on, hop off service with north and south routes available.

The old style buses have been changed to new air conditioned ones - not so charming but they do offer better coverage of the island.

Further Details:

The local buses provide a frequent service and cost effective way to see the Island. Some of the older buses had been retained and relive the charm of yesteryear. A 5 day unlimited bus ticket costs around 12.00 Euros.
