We were a party of 23 girl renting 3 villa next door to each other. 12 were in Villa Gardina with the rest split into the other two villas. Upon arriving to Villa Gardina I was sent a message by one of my party members who had arrived earlier that day. It said "OMG YOU'RE GOING TO DIE" IT'S EVEN BETTER THAN THE PICTURES" That said we couldn't wait to arrive. She was right, the villa was perfect, clean, spacious, bright, not to much decor just enough. All the rooms have great beds, we were provided with clean towels. The Kitchen was a perfect size for my party of 12. I was presently surprised that the villas had a dishwasher (not sure why), there was a microwave and a large fridge freezer and plenty of space for us to store our food and drinks. I stayed in the large master bedroom in the basement. The room was a bit damp on arrival but that seem to not bother me at all once I settled myself in. Although my clothe had a funny damp smell to them when I left but nothing a washing machine couldn't fix. The owners of the Villa are AMAZING, they made our holiday - dear I say it EPIC, from the start of the booking process to the end when we left the villa. Janice was my main point of contact, nothing seemed too big or too small for her to achieve on my behalf. When I made contact I got a response within minutes. Any query's or concerns I had were dealt with so quickly I didn't have time to worry about anything. They arranged a taxi pick up to and from the airport for us. When 2 of the showers were leaking they sent someone around straight away to fix it. We were there for my birthday Janice Baldacchino and her amazing staff even left me such a lovely birthday gift. YES I CRIED... I was so touched by their kindness. They arranged for a taxi to collect us and take us to dinner for my birthday and even allowed us to occupy one of the villas after the normal check out time as we were all leaving at different times of the day. I had the most amazing time with the most amazing people and couldn't recommend these villas more highly. Part of me doesn't want to write this review as I feel I have found a gem and want it all for myself lol but that's not me. If you don't book these villas you'd be a fool, can't say you wasn't warned. Jancie and Charmaine you will most definitely be seeing me again. Thanks A MILLION FOR EVERY THING YOU DID FOR ME AND MY CREW. YOU OUT DID YOURSELVES. From me and the 40th Bday Squad - We love you! ******

Enjoyable week in Malta at Villa Gardenia

  • 4 of 5

The description of the property was accurate, it was a large 3 storey villa with spacious accommodation. As it was end of the season, the property was a bit 'tired' but the furniture and beds were of a good quality. The bedding and towels were all very clean. The lower floor had a slightly damp smell but once we occupied the room it wasn't so noticeable. The kitchen needed cleaning better than it was - but saying that I am inclined to be OCD regarding kitchens. It had a good size fridge, the oven and hob worked well but the dishwasher did not clean properly (no, we did not overfill it) so we ended washing dishes by hand. The pool needed work as some of the tiles on the bottom were lifting. One thing I have to comment about which is very important, a bottle of vodka was spilled out of the fridge and it set the fire alarm off, which in turn immediately cut the gas off. I called and spoke to Mrs Dorothy Baldachinno and she said someone would be round in 10 mins and there they were! The man then checked all the smoke detectors and rectified the alarm, this for me was really important and an excellent service, as you hear so many stories about dodgy boilers etc on holiday. I would certainly recommend the property to family and friends. It would be handy to have a car as the shops are a good 10-15 mins walk away up a steep hill. I would have given 5 stars apart from the odd niggle or two.

Great villa at the heart of Melieha

  • 5 of 5

We booked the villa to have an employee prep meeting. We have had such a great time. The villa is perfect of mid-size group, really large, beautiful pool and very well located. Your are 15 mins walk to the beach, 10 mins from shops and stores! The owners ensured we were content and answered any of our enquiries in a very quick delay. Highly recommended!

Villa Gardenia was just what we expected, the photographs a realistic overall view of the property

  • 5 of 5

It was spacious, the living area comfortable and the bedrooms enormous and great to have so many bathrooms!

Pool area was clean and tidy, the pool was somewhat chilly so early in the season but refreshing and used daily,

The outside eating area on the balcony was much used and lovely to have a barbeque.

Thank you for a very memorable special week in Mellieha celebrating our daughter's wedding.

Can't wait to come back :-)

Perfect villa for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of friends stayed at the villa for a long weekend in June, as we desperately needed some sunshine and Vitamin D!

All communication with the owners was very effective, and they even organised the keys to be at the airport with the car rental company we used (as it was a lie flight).

The villa was very clean, great location and the pool was amazing!

Can't recommend this villa enough!
