An outstanding brand new, fully furnished ground floor apartment available for rental in the exclusive Tas Sellum development in Mellieha in the north of Malta. The apartment is in a perfect location with a large terrace overlooking the pool and the open sea views behind. Its very close to the sea and a 10 minute walk to the largest sandy beach on Malta: Ghadira Bay. The development is an exclusive haven of tranquility ideal for a relaxing holiday. Facilities available nearby, include a full range of water sports: water skiing, wake boarding, sailing, wind surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving. The sandy beach is ideal for children with a long gradual decline. Other facilities nearby, include Popeye's Village (used in the filming of the movie) and horse riding. There are many restaurants, bars and shops in the nearby villages of Mellieha and Bugibba. Imagine yourself sitting on the terrace watching the sun go down over the Mediterranean after a busy day relaxing by the pool. Perfect!
We are a British family living in Hampshire with 2 teenage children. My husband works for a computer software company and I work with horses. My husband was born in Malta, has a Maltese mother and spent every summer as a child holidaying in Malta with relatives.
As a family we spent most summers in Malta and then decided to invest in a holiday apartment in the island we could use and rent out the rest of the time.
Having sought advice from family, we decided to buy an apartment at Tas Sellum before they were completed, knowing the builder Tumas produces apartments to the highest standard of quality on the islands.
The north of Malta had always been my favourite part of the island to visit - the best beaches and so much more peaceful.
Joanna Bishop purchased this apartment in 2008
Knowing Malta very well, we decided to buy an apartment in the north of the island in Mellieha. The sandy beach is by far the best on the island and is very child friendly and quieter than other parts of Malta.
1. We had a lovely holiday in Malta and the apartment was perfect!
2. Thanks for the apartment, we had an excellent time and were all very impressed with the place. Spotless, very nicely decorated and a lovely location. I would definitely recommend the place to friends. Especially as we pretty much had the pool to ourselves every day, always a bonus.
3. the apartment was VERY clean with plenty of space for our family of 5. The complex was ideal with the pool being situated so close to the apartment and the owners were very accomodating with all of our questions and any help we needed with getting around in Malta. I HIGHLY recommend a stay with you.
Lovely, clean and spacious apartment. Excellent facilities. Everything you need for 6 people. Sheared pool was plenty big enough and well maintained.. We found the hills quite hard going in the fantastic 37 degrees heat of the Malta summer, so hired a car. We also used Gino's taxi transfer, he was very efficient and even helped us into the apartment with our bags. Would definitely recommend this apartment and will be returning.
We have never been to Malta and the first impressions were not great, less than impressive car hire staff and an even less than impressive car! However a short drive later we arrived in Mellieha and found the apartment. The local agent, Nick, called us as we arrived to tell us the apartment was ready so that was useful as we were early. Nick showed us round, explained how everything worked, especially the air conditioning and the electronic gates! he then left us to it telling us to call if we needed anything. The apartment is in a block of 11 and is modern and very clean. there is a pool outside and the area is again very clean and well maintained. As explained in the very comprehensive handover notes everyting is quite close, the beach, the longest on the island apparently, is about a 10 minute walk away, yes there is a hill but we didnt mind that, it wasnt the steepest we encountered! The village has a large range of restaurants that cater for every taste and there are shops and small foodstores either 5 minutes walk or a similar drive to the larger market. Malta's roads are not the best but its no problem as the longest drive is about 40 minutes and that would get you anywhere on the island! we took the owners advice and vsited Gozo, Comino, Medina, Valletta, Marsaxlokk plus a few other places. The buses are frequent and cheap and i would recommend using them for trips to St Pauls Bay where we took a boat to Gozo, we used Sea Adventures and had a great time, they offered a tour of Gozo which we found to be interesting and value for money. We had no problems at all with the apartment or our stay and i would be happy to recommend this apartment to anyone, great for kids or adults as there is a 7pm cut off for the pool which should keep noise down. The view from the terrace looks out over the bay and out to the sea. We didnt make full use of the kitchen as we ate out but the facilities are good and, again, modern. 3 bathrooms ensured we could get ready quickly and 3 bedrooms allowed us to have our own space. We had a great time so thanks very much!!
Blown away with this luxurious, spacious apartment. Extremely well looked after, modern clean and very well equipped. Stunning views over the bay, great pool just steps from the patio doors, lovely seating shaded area. The apartment has everything you need and more. The air conditioning was extremely welcoming. Our whole experience with Joanna was completely hassle free from beginning to end. Extremely well organised, including the lovely, helpful Gino who was waiting at the airport in Malta and on time for our pick up for departure. In our experience, nothing was too much trouble. Whether it's relaxing, water sports, or beach holiday, this has it all. Bus stop isn't far at all and buses are regular. The only downside (and this was a very small downside) was the fact that the apartment is at the top of a hill, so if you have problems walking long distance, you will need to hire a car. The advantage of this was of course the stunning views and the lovely breeze. Malta is a special place and I would very happily stay here again. Thank you Joanna and family.
Having used several apartments within the exclusive Tas Sellum development, I can honestly say that this apartment is by far my favourite.
Situated directly onto the pool area, it makes for VERY relaxing hot sunny days.
The pictures don't do it justice. The furnishings are of a very high quality as are the bathroom towels.
I am very picky when it comes to mattresses and often have problems sleeping in hotels because of it. No trouble here! Excellent mattresses and pillows which caused a few long lies!
The kitchen is a great size and very well equipped with excellent knives, (has been a sticking point with me in other apartments) lots of (matching) crockery and glasses, apron, tea towels, oven gloves, etc.
The washing machine is located in the kitchen which isn't always the case in Malta and has a great short wash for refreshing pool towels. I didn't use the dryer option as there's a wonderful wrap around terrace to the rear of the property with clothes horse and pull line.
The balcony opens directly onto the pool area as mentioned (has a lock if you have small children) which allows you to pull your sunloungers/chairs onto the pool deck. There are lots of loungers and chairs with comfortable covers.
The 3 bedrooms are all double sized, with plenty of storage.
A safe is available in the master bedroom along with 2 hairdryers.
All in all a wonderful apartment which the owners should be very proud of.
I holiday in Malta at least twice a year and can't wait to return to this apartment.
We (a family of 5) recently staying at this superb apartment. Having been to Malta a few times, we wanted somewhere central and this apartment ticks all the boxes! The owners (Joanna and husband) have written the most concise and excellent instructions (including a step by step guide on how to get there) and you really couldn't ask for more. In addition, their apartment manager Nick is helpful, friendly and local.
Dont listen to much to the negative reviews if you see any, the apartment lacks for nothing. Book with confidence, I would book again without hesitation
we were met by the key holder at the apartment and were very impressed with both the gated complex and the apartment itself.
there is a beach nearby, although we preferred the beach a couple of miles away.
The complex was quiet clean and tidy.
the air conditioning was invaluable, we would most definitely book this apartment again next time we visit Malta.
The apartment has sea views, and and it is only a short walk to the sea. The largest beach in Malta at Ghadira Bay (also known as Mellieha Bay), is a 10 minute walk. Many other beaches are also nearby such as Golden Bay, Ghajn Tuffieha and Gnejna Bay, Paradise Bay, Selmun, Mistra (all about 10-15 minutes drive).
The apartment is approximately 40 minutes drive from the island's airport at Luqa.
The nearest bars and restaurants are approximately 5-10 minutes walk. The nearest village is Mellieha where there are many bars and restaurants. This is a 5 minute drive, 20 minute walk up a steep hill or a short bus trip. Valletta, the capital is approx 30-40 minute drive. Popeye's village is a 5 minute drive, Gozo Ferry a 10 minute drive, the ancient city of Mdina is about 20 minute drive. There is a major bus terminus within a 10 minute walk giving access to all major parts of the islands.
Mellieha contains many shops, bars, restaurants and banks (with ATMs). Because of the steep hill leading to the apartment, a car is recommended.
