About the property

Two bedroom apartment, HPI/5946

Our apartment is the perfect place to unwind, relax and enjoy some breathtaking views and the beautiful sandy beach, located five minutes walk away. Our two bedroom apartment offers guests all the comfort needed to make their holiday a perfect one!. It is superbly located and makes an ideal family holiday home!!The apartment is just a couple of minutes away from the local bus stop, making it easily accessible for travel to/from the airport as well as villages and places throughout the island.

The whole apartment is suffused with natural light from west-facing windows and doors. The apartment consists of an open plan living room with sofa bed, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area, a double bedroom, two singles bedroom and a bathroom with shower.

Home-made furnishings create a space that is aesthetically pleasing, comfortable and practical.

Supplied with automatic washing machine and is fully air-conditioned, price also includes also towels & bed linen which are also provided.

Malta is easily accessible using one of many airlines. Ryanair fly every day from London Luton, Easyjet now fly from Manchester and Gatwick and Air Malta fly from Heathrow and Stanstead. These are just a sample of the services that fly to Malta. From Luqa Airport in Malta the apartment is only 25 minutes away by car and if necessary I can arrange a local taxi firm to collect clients at the airport and take them to the apartment at a very reasonable cost.

Driving Directions from Airport:

Follow signs to Gozo, drive along the Salina Coast Road, keep driving straight past Qawra and Bugibba area.At the intersection and traffic lights you will see signs to Mellieha.

If you opt for car hire, we recommend a local firm, which offers a very reliable service to our clients.

Airlines Flying to Malta:

Air France Alitalia German Wings Fly Nordic Finnair

Air Malta Austrain Airlines Lufthansa Hello Fly Olimpic Airways

Ryanair British Airways SAS, Excel Airways, Easyjet.

The balcony faces the Mellieha Valley with spectacular views of the Mellieha Church at top of the hill and one can also catch some side sea views too of the Mellieha Bay. It is just the right place to unwind with a drink. It is not spacious enough for alfresco dining but a small table and some chairs are available too. It is perhaps just the right place for a breakfast for two:)

A piece of heart in Malta!

  • 5 of 5

Mariella is not a simple homeowner but a family who welcomes you with open arms in Malta. This Inglese

Is my second time in mortar and my second time from her! I could not go back! The first time I go back to winter 2012. With all my family we stayed in her apartment in Birkirkara. The apartment was complete with all the amenities, very basic and especially clean. And mariella was very nice with us now: our flight came late in the evening and she worried that we could have something for our next morning, no longer open the shops. You are immediately made available to provide us with all the guides and directions for links and places to be missed! In those days we have found very close affinity with Mariella who has become a dear family friend!

This year I wanted to bring my fiancé to Malta and visit her at a different time. Mariella with immense joy reserved for us her apartment in Melliha, a seaside resort north of Malta. Also this apartment is equipped with every accessory to spend a holiday abroad with all the comforts of home, from microwave to fridge, from oven to air conditioner. Now that I remember, there was also the washer !!!!

Mariella was also very nice this time: he provided us with all the information needed for the marriages and the places to visit. Your availability is also active in the evenings and at night, to meet all our needs. Mariella suggested the best ways and times, I would say perfect, to enjoy Malta in full, suggesting us to reach wonderful bays such as Tuffieha Bay, the beaches of Melliha and Comino. The apartment is not just comfortable. It is located in an exceptional location because it is served by bus stops and is just off the boat stops that take you to Comino. Do not miss there Blue Lagoon: a paradise in the water!

Buses are very efficient, they run almost every ten minutes, also because the island is small and distances less distant than they appear on the map. Mariella opened the doors of her home, tasted the Ftira prepared by her formidable TONY husband, as well as a formidable chef of the restaurant in Tuffieha Bay.

For Comino, instead, close to home can buy tickets for a trip to Comino at only 13 euros per person. With Mariella we also saw Valletta in the evening, even more beautiful than by day. Its sacred and Mediterranean hospitality made it an extraordinary evening: we dined at TA NENU where we ate typical Maltese dishes of great quality and with a perfect service.Mariella is 100% quality assurance.What's else?

Mariella the owner of the appartment has made our stay very special. She has been so helpful and kind. Service with a capital S.

Nice holiday

  • 5 of 5

Dear Mariella,

we spend a very nice holiday in Malta. Your appartment was clean and we found everything we need. If we had a question, you answered us fast. The Mellieha Bay - beach and the bus-stop (to Valletta, Gozo and Golden beach) is near from the appartment.

Value for money

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was decent, clean and well located, being close to the beach, public transport and lovely restaurants just down the main road. It was really easy to commute to the rest of the island from the apartment. Mariella, the owner, however, was the true gem during our holiday. She really went out of her way to help and nothing was too much of a bother for her. She made us feel welcome and even managed to make a few excursion bookings on our behalf. Would definitely recommend the apartment to families looking for a good holiday in a great location.

Mellieha Bay
Car: not necessary

The beach at Mellieha Bay – Il Ghadira, named for the natural sandbank lying just 100m off the shore is one of the most popular on Malta. The largest sandy beach on the island, Mellieha offers shallow waters and a vast expanse of smooth golden sands, and the presence of life-guards make it an ideal spot for families with children. Water sports are available on Mellieha Beach, including water-skiing and para-sailing, with fun activities such as banana boat rides and pedaloes on offer. A good choice of beach bars and restaurants line the beach and some large hotels sit back from the seafront.

The gorgeous Mellieha Bay beach is the longest beach in the area with lovely clean, shallow water and golden sands. Swimmers love it and it is safe for the kids. It does get a bit crowded at weekends. This beach is so nice that the locals use it too. Nearby Golden Bay is delightful too. Mellieha beach features loads of friendly little kiosks that sell cool, fresh local and exotic fruits, ice cream.

Golf: The town centre of Mellieha is packed with interesting and useful shops, restaurants selling delicious local and international food and friendly cafes with chilled outdoor seating. The town’s side streets are pretty, typically Maltan, giving an insight into the lives of the people who live here all year round. Folk sit outside their houses on warm evenings chatting, a good way to meet the locals.

Popeye Village

The kids will love this feature of Malta! Popeye Village was originally built as a film set but now it’s a magical place for children, with a museum as well as live puppet shows and a funfair.

If you visit between 30th August and 8th September you can join in with the big celebrations for the Feast of our Lady of Victories. One long party covering the whole week, filled with exciting displays of fireworks, live music and folk dancing, local arts and crafts and a spectacular procession.

The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Mellieha

Fancy some history? Our lady of Mellieha church faces onto a really pretty ancient square with a sparkling fountain and trees. This is a little oasis away from the holiday turmoil. Or visit the Parish Church complex complete with wonderful medieval cathedrals clinging to the slopes & the unmissable war shelters!!

Ancient Art

There’s an ancient painting in Mellieha Sanctuary Cave, of the Madonna and Child. Allegedly, painted in 60AD by St Luke whilst he was shipwrecked here, but more likely a medieval piece of art.
