\"We found that the villa was very clean and had everything you needed. The pool was fine and the owners very helpful.It is situated very well, in a quite road but well within walking distance of shops and busses if needed.We would recommend this property to anybody, whether a family with young children or teenagers, it would suit most people.\"

I didn't expect the villa to be as nice as it was! Roomy, clean and much nicer than expected - loved it! With 2 of us middle aged, 4 teens and a 9-yr-old there was something for all of us. Could have wished for the beach to be closer but the area around the beach wasn't as nice as where this is located so in the end we were happy to be where we were. Like others have said: the bus was quick and cheap, we just ended up being too lazy to hop on it as much as we maybe could or should have. The nearest restaurant - Cross Keys we went to 4 times! Bar and music on bottom floor, delicious pizzas one up and a bit more upmarket at the top, we tried it all. When we had trouble paying with our card we were offered to come bk and pay next day so that we wouldn't be left without cash! But we scraped it and were then offered a lift to cashpoint to see whether card would work there (it did) Amazingly friendly attitude all around. We fell in love with Malta, the people, Ringway, the view, but NOT the crazy traffic - scary, my one and only complaint of Malta. Thanks Antoinette for a lovely holiday :-)

The accomodation is really pleasant, quite and spacious. It is located, as mentionned, in quite area of Mellieha, with other villas all around. Just one point : the appartment has 3 wide bedrooms, but the lounge is rather a hallway as it has 6 doors and no windows. The facilities are simple but in good condition, nothing's missing. The appartment also have a large covered balcony with a table, lots of lemon trees around. The pool is ok and the bedding is comfortable. Not very far by foot from Mellieha downtown, so no real need to have a car. Highly recommended.

This place is really beautiful. It is perfect for large groups and is superbly clean. We even found bread, jam and butter for our first breakfast when we arrived at night. supermarkets and bus stop within walking distance. Beach is a little further away, but there is a beautiful untouched cove within 20-30 mins walk, that is definitely worth checking out! All in all: fantastic experience that I can only recommend (particularly to large groups.)

My family stayed in the villa April 2009. Arrived in the dark after being stuck in a traffic jam and was pleasantly surprised. Had young children with us who loved running round exploring (obviously need to be watched near pool area and steps), the whole villa had a wonderful feel to it, very quiet and pleasant at night and lovely in the morning sunrise. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, even when we locked ourselves out! The villa itself was lovely and clean and homely, the upstairs part was especially large. Santa Maria estate is a good base for exploring the rest of Malta with a bus stop at the top of the road.Would recommend for anyone, especially large groups as you can have your own space but also plenty of room for get-togethers such as barbecues.
