“Fantastic location, lovely accomodation, perfect owners”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 for a stay in October 2012

We went to Villa Lyss in late Oct 2012 (Half Term) with partner and 2 children (7&12). We hired a car for the week which we collected from the airport on our arrival, an easy drive to the Villa of around 40 minutes.
Lovely apartment, spacious and well maintained. The views and pool area were fantastic and from what we saw around the island you would be hard pushed to find similar apartments. The owners were very helpful and friendly and provided the perfect balance of being around to answer any questions but let you get on with your holiday.
The beach in Mellieha is lovely, really great for the children with soft sand and shallow water with a few places to buy lunch.
Hiring a car to get around the island is useful and the local car hire companys offer good terms.
We would definatley consider coming back to Malta and returning to Villa Lyss.

“A gem within a private residential area”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

It is a pleaure to be able to write about Villa Lyss and its owners Ray and Maria. You are aways guarenteed a warm welcome.
Situated on the Sana Maria estate the apartments are spacious and clean. There are only three so you are guarenteed no more than 12 people staying at any one time. The private pool overlooking the valley to the sea is meticulously clean and there are ample beds and brollys.
It is a quiet haven
A ten minute walk to the town of Mellieha where there are enough restaurants of varying tastes and prices to suit all. You can walk to the excellant beach in the bay in about 30 minutes or catch one of the regular buses. These same buses will take you to Valletta and from there all around the island.
Only two things to take into account. The apartments are not air conditioned thugh ample fan are provided. Also Mellieha is built in a valley, so where ever you go it is up and down a hill.
I would highly recommend Villa Lyss as a place to stay.

“Delightful location and great appartment”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

person found this review helpful

Just come back from a week staying on the ground floor of Villa Lyss with husband and 2 kids aged 5 and 8. The appartment was very clean and had everything we could ask for. It's very spacious and we really loved being on the ground floor as there was quite a large terrace area just for our use and we could easily go and sit by the pool even once the kids were in bed.

The owners could not have been more helpful or more welcoming and they take great care of their appartments and the pool area. The pool was perfect, with a shallow area that our 5 year old could stand up in.

The thing that really stands out about this appartment is the location and the outlook. Malta is really quite built up and we found it hard to find somewhere to rent with a garden / greenery. The surroundings here are lovely, with palms and a small garden to the rear and an outlook down the hill to the sea. It's in a very nice area, surrounded by expensive looking villas!

Mellieha is an excellent family destination. The beaches here were great for the kids as the sea is so shallow and the beaches sandy. We found lots of nice places to eat and the appartment is only just down the hill from a supermarket. All in all a great place....but if they wanted to spend some money on it air conditioning would be a big bonus!
