“Perfect location for relaxing break”

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.

“Beautiful Villa with fab pool!”

We have just returned from a week in Malta where we stayed at Villa Sunnyside in Mellieha. There were 9 adults and 1 baby and all of us had a fantastic time staying here. The pool was the highlight of the week as we spent a lot of family time swimming and having fun in and around the pool. The owners are absolutely lovely. Took time to talk to us and give us advice about which places to visit in Malta. When we had a problem with a power cut they came straight out to fix it. The rooms were nice, most had ensuite and were plenty big enough. It's very well positioned in a Mellieha although we did hire cars as there is a lot to see on the island. The town itself is really nice and not touristy at all. It's quiet and has some lovely architecture. We had some great meals in restaurants here during our stay. Villa Sunnyside is extremely well equipped as everything you could need for cooking is provided and there is a dish washer which was great with such a big family. We spent many evenings having a BBQ and sitting together to eat on the balcony which was really nice. Overall, we all agreed that we would definately recommend this villa as we did not have one complaint!

“This is a truly amazing villa”

This is a very large villa which fits in our extended family of 10 very well indeed we were met by a driver arranged by the owner and she was at the house to greet us and give us a short tour of local amenities.The rooms are large and beds comfortable. The 2pools are a real benefit to a family.
especially in August. The smaller shallow pool great for young children and both pools are kept spotless. Linen changed weekly and rubbish collected daily. The only downside is no air conditioning but there are fans. And blinds in every room which is a definite benefit. Would we come again? Yes but perhaps not August.

“Great large family villa with children's pool!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We came back last night from a fabulous week in Villa Sunny side. There where 10 of us in total, ages ranging from 61 to 1.5, and we all loved it!

There was plenty of room for all of us in the villa, with 4 big bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs. It is at a good standard and very clean. It also has free wifi which was a bonus!

Karen and her mum are both very nice and accommodating. All our questions before we arrived were replied to promptly and when there they were very helpful.

The highlight of the villa is the great outside area, especially the children's pool. The weather was great all week and the water in the pools was warm enough to stay in it for quite a while.

There is also a barbeque and a big outside dining table, which is where we had most of our meals. The kitchen is well equipped, and you can buy all the food you'd need in the shops in the village. It's a 15 minute walk, uphill, but if you go early morning or late afternoon, it is not too bad. The bakery opens at 6:00 so you can get fresh bread for breakfast. The butchers (Prime) sells great barbeque meat which can be marinated in any flavour you'd like. The supermarket, Shopppers, delivers for free to the villa.

There are quite a few restaurants in the village, and they seem very reasonably priced.

It's about a 30 minute walk to the sandy beach in Mellieha. It was very crowded when we went (Sunday) so we decided not to stay as the pool is actually better. :) However, if you go straight down to the sea (10 min) from the villa, there is a tiny beach which is good for snorkling.

We also went on a day cruise with the English Rose on day, which was great. The jetty from which it leaves is about a 20 min walk from the villa.

“fantastic family holiday villa”
Reviewed July 23, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at the sunny side for 3 weeks, not only is it a well equipped villa great laundry facillitys vital on a large family holiday. There are large bedrooms most of which have huge ceiling fans, it has a fantastic out side area the pools are wonderful and the BBQ. The out side dinning area is also great. The owners are such nice people and so helpful. John was very very kind to us and kept the pool up to speck for us. The age group went from 4 to 70 including teenagers and all of them absolutely loved it we started out with 5 of us but ended with 10 by the time the family all arrived. Just up the hill is the supermarket or there is Scots at Bummerad. The restaurants are plentiful Escargot on the top of the hill as you go down the village on the left, offers fantastic local meals at great prices and Norbert the owner/ chef is so welcoming. Rubin’s at the Costa del Sol on the beach at Ghadira offers fab views and meals at night as well as good lunches in the day. The cross keys has a wonderful restaurant upstairs and the top notch Il Mithna is equivalent to a Michelin star restaurant. Sandro is the owner Chef and again a wonderful host. It is in a 16th century windmill built in the times of the knights of St John.
I would strongly recommend the Sunny side and the walk up and down in to the village helps you burn off the pounds.
