We enjoyed the villa. We were left to our own devices by the owners from start to finish though they arranged a taxi for us from the airport and also car hire for the week. They offered to stock the villa as well for our arrival which we should have availed of as we got there late at night.

I would advise hiring a car if staying here. Nearest shops are 10 minutes walk up a very steep hill where there is a decent supermarket. Nearest bus stop is up there as well as far as I know. I couldn't figure out how to work the TVs and gave up on them though my 11 year old son got one working. One must mention that, also, apparently, one should expect to encounter ants with great regularity. They were very prominent on the living room floor and the first night they were also on the counter tops in the kitchen. We had to lay traps for them and be very careful with food. I emailed the owners and in fairness received a prompt reply on how to deal with them.

The barbeque was put to use on a few occasions and we enjoyed that. We had family staying in another villa where no barbeque was provided and even prohibited.

Other than that the property is very well maintained, spacious and exactly as advertised and we would stay here again if visiting in Mellieha.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in this villa for our wonderful wedding. The villa was beautiful and very spacious. It was perfect for what we needed especially getting ready on our wedding day.

Everywhere was well maintained, the pool was lovley and so nice having the sun on the pool area for pretty much all day.

BBQ and terrace was fabulous, spent quite a few nights enjoying this.

The beds were very comfortable and rooms were so spacious, it was nice having a bathroom in each room.

We would definitely recommend this villa and we will certainly be returning in the future.

Spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a party of nine and villa Sardinella was perfectly spacious for us all. Wonderfuly big bedrooms and bathrooms all modern and well presented. The beds were all comfortable and good sizes.

The balcony is the perfect place to enjoy the sun rise/set. The pool was a very good size although this was in the shade by 6pm. Definitely not a bad thing if the sun is at its hottest, especially if you have young children. The villa is well situated and close to a good selection of shops and restaurants. There are watersports to be found on Mellieha Bay. From start to finish the process of renting this villa was as smooth as possible. Janice was so helpful and accommodating.

Spacious villa with a good pool in nice, quiet location and efficient service from owner

  • 4 of 5

This was a great villa for us with a large family. It had excellent, new bathrooms and a fabulous pool area (water not that warm in April though because pool was part-shaded throughout the day by trees). Good kitchen, nice balcony area and patio table and we made good use of the barbecue. Bedroom and living areas were ok, would benefit from better quality beds and towels, some homely touches and a better dishwasher. Lower floor bedrooms were a long way downstairs but the rooms were certainly spacious (bathroom on lower floor had not been refurbished to the standard of upstairs bathrooms and shower took ages to get luke warm but main bathroom was fine). Reasonably well cleaned and maintained, could have been a bit more thorough.

Mellieha has a great selection of restaurants and supermarkets and an excellent bakery at the top of the road. Owner was efficient and helpful in dealing with the booking and meeting us at the airport with the key, other than that we were left alone. Overall it was good value for the price we paid and a good base to view 'Game of Thrones' film locations across Malta!
