We had a wonderful time at the Villa. The apartment is perfectly
equipped for a family. (In our case, a 2-year old, a 4-year old & us
The apartments are clean, spacious, and practical. It all looks and
feels as described on the web page. Bathroom, living room, WiFi -
everything worked, and the kitchen is equipped even for larger meals.
The patio offers lots of space for meals, playing, and the pool is
great, again especially for kids.
Bus stops are quite close-by. (The closest one a 5-minute walk.)
Mellieha offers - for us - the right mixture of tranquility,
restaurants, beach access (we recommend taking the 101 bus to Golden
Bay), and public transport to other places on the island. If you're
up for some cross-country running, the edge of town is only two

We enjoyed a lovely stay at the Desiderata Villas. The apartments are very well maintained and provide the perfect setting for a restful holiday. Local amenities; beach, boats trips etc are all available within walking distance and the local transport is handy for sightseeing around the island. Prior to our visit we had to rearrange our stay and the owner was particularly organised (and patient) with email and telephone correspondence. This continued into the holiday, where David was readily available to help; assisting us with shopping, planning day trips and ordering taxis. We look forward to future holidays here!
Très belle maison avec piscine dans un quartier calme et résidentiel. Appartement propre, grand et bien équipé même de l'eau fraîche au frigo. Belle piscine et jacuzzi avec grande terrasse. David le propriétaire nous a reçu comme des amis. A notre arrivée nous a fait visiter la ville en nous montrant les commerces et commodités. Accueil chaleureux. A recommander.
We stayed in the villa for one week. The owner David was helpful and friendly and provided us with a welcome beer on arrival. The villa is in a good residential location and a short drive to the main centre with plenty of restaurant choices. The villa complex is lovely and was well equipped but both the villa decoration and the contents can best be described as tired and in need of updating. To put things in perspective, none of the issues spoilt our holiday and because we were there only a week, we didn't bother to highlight them to the owner, however they were enough for us not to strongly recommend the accommodation unless some money is spent.
The sort of issues included window blind not working unless physically pulled down, poles to rotate to close / open blinds missing, plastic patio table with a big chunk missing from leg,bathroom sink waste missing and grotty plug with missing chain a poor replacement, as mentioned in other review quite a few tiles missing from pool etc..As I said in isolation fairly minor points but added together not the standard we were expecting from the description and other reviews.
With a bit of TLC and money spent, this could be a great spot.
As recommended, we hired a car from Billys for the week, I was told by a taxi driver this company is in the same family ownership. David kindly took us to the office to collect the car but there wasn't one ready for us. We were then driven to another 'Billys' garage and given a car and told to use that until ours was delivered the next day. This car was quite high mileage, fairly marked body work and pulled to the left. We didn't get a replacement the next day and were told we could continue to use the one we had been given, I declined due to the steering issue and went to the office again to be informed there wasn't a replacement for us but one would be delivered the next day, which it was. The replacement car was again high mileage, tatty and with an engine warning light constantly illuminated. At no time during my stay did anyone ask to see my driving licence. I feel the very laid back attitude of the car hire experience is perhaps indicative of the villa rental.
Having said all that, I would use this accommodation again if it had a bit of effort spent to improve it.
David, his wife and two lovely daughters are charming, hospitable hosts.
The apartment is more than adequately equipped and as close to home away from home as you could expect to find.
The swimming pool is lovely with a large surrounding deck. Parking is easy on the premises or just outside.
Mellieha is a wonderful place for a holiday with Malta's largest sandy beach, a wide choice of restaurants and excellent food shops close by.
Highly recommended. We will return. Thank you David
