“Fantastic place for a group holiday ”
Reviewed 29 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The villa is as described with lots of space, great pool and ac. The owners are helpful and when issues arrive - as they always do - then they are very quickly sorted (in an hour on Saturday evening). I can recommend this to a large family or small group

“Excellent stay at this fabulous villa”
Reviewed 16 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I would give this villa a lovely 4.5 stars.

The owner of this villa was fantastic. She was very helpful and organised our car hire when we were undecided (we left it until the last minute but she managed to get two cars for our group of eight). The car hire company that she uses were also very good as we have experienced problems with other companies in the past. I would recommend you going though the owner Karen if you are thinking of hiring a car (something I would recommend in Malta as you need it to get about).

The villa's location is excellent- the best villa we've stayed at in Malta. Melliha bay is a lovely location, with good restaurants nearby and the sea. You do need to drive to places such as St Julian's but as stated earlier, I would recommend getting car hire anyway if you wish to visit other places in Malta.

The views from the villa were lovely. The pool was a good depth and lovely in the hot sun. The owner came several times to clean the filters and make sure it was working well for us. There were plenty of rooms and bathrooms for everyone in our group of eight. Some of the beds were more comfortable than others but they supplied items such as towels (for villa only-bring a beach/pool towel), hair dryer, iron etc. There was plenty of plates etc for us to use. Good outside BBQ and seating area. Do bring mosquito repellent although they supply citronella candles etc

There are plenty of seating areas for large groups. All the sheets and towels/pillows are nice and clean. The villa was lovely and clean when we moved in to it. Fridge/freezer and cooker was nice and clean too. The only reason why I wouldn't give 5 stars was due to small things such as some beds being more comfortable than others. There was also some building work going on next door but it was nothing to worry about-they have almost finished that villa and the noise from it was barely noticeable. It will make the view that bit nicer once it is completed-which I suspect will be quite soon.

Overall,I would highly recommend staying at this villa. I think Karen and her husband were very pleasant owners. They even took us to the supermarket while we were waiting for our cars to be delivered! We are thinking of returning to this villa in another year as a family and we would just like to thank Karen and her family for such a lovely stay.

“fantastic villa in lovely quiet location”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in September 2016

Me and my extended family stayed at this villa in september , eight of us in total and there was plenty of room for us all and loads to spare, the lady that runs the place arranged a taxi the airport for us and right awwy as soon as we got.there she made us feel like we were long lost family or something ,offering to show us the local shops and making sure we had everything we needed for our week in the sun.

The villa is in a very nice quiet arra of mellieha but walking distance to the sea and shops, although to be honest it was hard to drag ourselves away from the place and just lounging by the large swimming pool and having barbecues and things took up most of our week.

Cleanliness was fantastic which was good because my sister in law is an absoloute cleanaholic and even she was impressed with the standards.

Overall the villa is situated very well for the fantastic mellieha beach and local tourist spots of bugibba and golden bay, not too far away from the ferry port for the other island of gozo and yet still lovely and quiet for an away from it all holiday with no hassles at all.

During our stay there was a village festa taking place and some of the friendly neighbours invited us to join them to celebrate as the area seems to be mainly residential and very very friendly, the maltese certainly know how to make their guests feel welcome and i will most certainly be talking my family into a repeat visit to the area and especially this villa

Thank you karen and her family for such a wonderful time

“Spacious and comfortable villa, great for families”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This villa is spacious and very comfortable. The pool is a fine one, and we especially appreciated the small children's pool. The area surrounding the pool is slip-proof, an important consideration with young children. The area is quiet, yet all the facilities of Mellieha are close at hand. Very good mini-supermarket at the top of the road. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. They provided an initial food package; and brought round a selection of toys for our youngsters. They live locally and are very happy to be contacted during the stay. We were six adults and two children under 6 spanning three generations staying for a week. Villa Sunnyside absorbed us comfortably (although catering for more than 8 people would be a bit of an effort - equipment, cutlery, even chairs if eating inside. We like to cook and often find some basic equipment lacking). All-in-all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this villa.
One booking detail. The price varies according to the number of people (quite reasonably). But actually it depends on the number of rooms occupied, which we did not understand. All very amicably sorted out, but worth being aware of.

“Great villa and pools”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children under 3 and were there on the 3rd Oct 2015 for 9 days. Very warm weather which surprised me that it would be that hot. The sea was warm enough to swim in.
Firstly, the owner, Karen, was extremely helpful and nice, nothing was too much bother. I can also say this for her family.
The villa has everything you need. Large rooms. Some of us felt a little bit chilly at night but there were blankets for the beds. Comfortable beds although some were a little creaky haha! One had a latex mattress.
The pool was a little cool but once in you soon warmed up. Loved the pool area and the kiddies pool was a God send. Couldn't get our toddler out he loved it so much.
Great having such a large verandah with a covered area that you could also eat out there.
The local supermarket is well stocked with many English brands too. Very surprised at how the supermarkets have improved since my last visit 11 years ago. Great bakery close by.
You need a car to get around but there is a bus stop just across the road from the villa.
Would definitely return to this villa and recommend it. Wish it was mind haha!
Not hemmed in, plenty of space around you. Parking on the road but very safe and quiet area. Not a busy road.

“Perfect location for relaxing break”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We recently returned from spending a fantastic week at the Villa Sunny Side as a party of 8 with 3 young children. It was a particularly warm start to September (hitting 38 by the end of the week of our stay) but the pool, shaded outside areas, air con in rooms and fans still made it a comfortable stay.

We can confirm the beds are comfortable as other reviewers have and also that Karen and her family are extremely welcoming and helpful. We booked hire cars through Karen and got some great rates and also took the transfer option which helped take one more holiday hassle away.

The Villa location is ideal for a relaxing break in a really scenic area of the Santa Maria estate with no overlooking properties and views from almost everywhere on the wrap-around veranda. We made good use of the BBQ and were regulars at the supermarket at the top of the street (approx 1km away, steep but a popular walking route). The supermarket deliver free if you do a bigger shop than your car hire can carry or have gone on foot!

The toddler pool is ideal for a quick cool down for anyone but also was a godsend for our younger children who weren’t keen on the big pool. The main pool is a really good size and the facilities inside with TV, radio, reading material, wi-fi etc. mean you barely need leave the building at all.

Would recommend this holiday to any group, particularly extended families and hope to return ourselves with an even larger party in future (we didn’t need the 2 downstairs bedrooms at all for our group this time).

Thanks again to Karen for making everything go smoothly and helping us get the real break we were after.
