WORST VRBO EXPERIENCE EVER!!! A TRUE VILLA THIS IS NOT.

  • 1 of 5
As a frequent user of VBRO, I planned our family's Malta vacation last December. Villa Blueberry was advertised as being in Marsaxlokk, a beautiful seaside Fisherman's village. This was to be a special trip for our family which included my wife, our 3 children & my elderly parents. My mother was born, raised and married in Malta. My wife & I were also married there on the same day as my parents in 1995, 33 years after my parents. The trip was to introduce our kids to this special island through the eyes of their grandmother. The owners single-handedly managed to ruin this experience with their deceptive marketing. When we arrived in Malta after our 30-hour trip from Arizona and California, we excitedly headed to Villa Blueberry. When we arrived, we were shocked to discover that the villa was not in Marsaxlokk, but in an industrial town called Zejtun. We immediately told the owners that this was unacceptable and a far cry from the seaside village of Marsaxlokk. I was told that the listing was an error by VRBO and that they had been trying to get it fixed for 6 months. Furthermore, they told me Marsaxlokk was only a 10-minute drive away. I informed that this was unacceptable and demanded our money back which I had wire transferred to them 3 months in advance of our arrival. They refused to do so, so we left the villa for a hotel until we secured another rental property. The very next day, the VRBO listing was changed to list the property in Zejtun rather than Marsaxlokk. Thankfully, I had the foresight to take a screenshot of the listing before they changed it. It is quite apparent why owners listed the property in Marsaxlokk. Just Google images of Marsaxlokk & Zejtun.
The villa itself is less than 2,000 sf and the furniture is simply old & dates which they call antiques. Wifi works only within 10 feet of router & in none of the bedrooms. Heat & A/C is coin operated & requires Euros on an as-needed basis. Must turn on water-heater in upstairs middle bedroom 2 hrs prior to wanting hot water. No dryer in villa. The first week was spent locating another property, hiring an attorney, working with Malta's Tourism Authority and Consumer Affairs. In addition to the money the owners will not return, we incurred additional fees for hotel rooms, meals, taxis and that does not include ongoing legal fees. Please note that this family also rents these properties (all in Zejtun): The Chateau, Villa Sky, Villa Valletta & Villa Strawberry. STRONG BUYER BEWARE!

Owner's Response: Dear Sir

Please note that the website data and descriptions are not managed by us but by the vacation rental advertising agency The data from the original website mentioned in your review was transferred by its employees. We do not even have a login/password to change the listing in the website mentioned above. In fact in the original website the listing was correct, Moreover the villa was shown in its proper location on the map in the original website and the description in the write up was clear as well stating the Zejtun is located to nearby villages of Marsascala and Marsaxlokk.

Zejtun is not an industrial town and this can be checked by a simple search on internet. In fact as soon as we knew that our villas and other villas were being advertised in the wrong location we immediately contacted the original vacation rental agency. We specifically bought property at Zejtun because of the rural surroundings. We specifically avoided Marsaxlokk due to the chaos there is everyday because of the fish market. We pride ourselves to have our villas in the old town of Zejtun which is just a minute away from Marsascala and 5 minutes away from Marsaxlokk. Even when you asked for the villa address about a week before arriving in Malta we stated that the villa was located in Zejtun, and when we asked you why didn’t you complain as soon as we sent you the email you just stated that you didn’t notice/realize. Moreover, the furniture is not old and it is what there is on the photos in the above mentioned websites.

We also tried to find a solution for you to stay at the villa and a 50% discount was offered but you refused. We have hundreds of guests each year and all of the guests are happy to stay in our villas and we have several return guests each year. Finally I am still trying to offer you a 50% part refund but you are still insisting that I pay you your hotel bills, your restaurant bills and a full refund.

We have hundreds of guests staying in our villas every year and we rarely have complaints.
The true story is that your wife refused your surprise to stay in a villa instead of a hotel and you are simply trying to find a way around the terms and conditions in our website. Finally my offer for a part refund without prejudice still stands. Just to confirm how true my reply is to our future clients I am willing to accept 75% of payments on arrival as the location of our villas was never an issue.


Regards,

Chris Cachia

SPACIOUS CENTRALLY LOCATED PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with the level of customer service we received. We had minor difficulty locating the villa, but the owner came and greeted us on the road and had us follow them back to the property. Upon arriving the property, we were welcomed with a map of the area, recommended restaurants in the area, and a quick overview of how everything in the property worked. The pool is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and are well equipped. We found the owners to be very accommodating and plan to return in warmer weather.

Marsascala offers you a relaxed atmosphere while still boasting a myriad of activities. The immediate area includes a number of well known restaurants and entertainment venues. Be it a quick snack or a full blown fish banquet, it is only a short drive away. You can walk along the picturesque promenade while on your way to dinner and get to know the locals who will undoubtedly be coming from or going to the same restaurants. An evening walk or an early morning job along the popular Marsascala promenade is an experience in itself.

Marsascala is also very close to the old town of Zejtun which is a typical Maltese Village surrounding a church. At Zejtun you can truly experience the Maltese way of living. The well know fishing village of Marsaxlokk is also close by. Like Marsacala, this village is much sought after for its fish restaurants. Marsaxlokk is very popular with tourists and locals alike for its fresh fish market which is set up every morning. You should reserve a morning for a stroll through this busy market and enjoy seeing fresh Mediterranean fish being sold and then order a fish lunch in one of the many restaurants that encircle the picturesque bay. The bay is usually full of traditional Maltese fishing boats unless you visit during a time when the fishermen are out fishing of course!
