Property has been amazing. The owners have been most helpful. House and pool is very clean.
I booked this villa for myself and my family. Me and my husband were marrying in Malta during our stay. I cannot thank the owners enough for their support in making sure the property was perfect for our special day.
We arrived to a small food package. The house was perfect. We were greated by Josette who was so helpful and offered her help through the whole of our stay. Whenever we may of needed something she would try her best to make sure we had it. Our holiday has been truly magical and Villa Blueberrys has been a big part of that.
The villa comes well equipped with essentials. Sunloungersaround the pool are comfortable and clean. Beautiful views for garden and pool area.
Lovely to have an ensuite bathroom with every bedroom and large bathroom on ground floor.
Pool table kept children and adults occupied inside. Bbq was clean. Bedrooms spacious. Driveway and plenty of parking.
Whilst thanking you for your positive feedback, we would like to thank all of you for staying at our villa and for being so kind throughout. We are more than happy to hear that all went well as we did our utmost to be supportive as possible. You are more than welcome to stay at our villas any time again!
Enjoyable Stay in a quiet location
We booked, as a party of 10, to stay in Blueberry Hills but due to building works next door, advised well in advance, we agreed to stay at Villa Valetta so the review is for that property.
Villa Valetta had 4 bedrooms rather than 5 (not as ideal) and a bit smaller but we were offered a discount, and owners very helpful. The villa is located between Marsakala and Marsaxlokk and we liked the fact that it was away from the main tourist idea, and within 20-25 minutes walk of both fishing villages, which we liked. We also caught the local buses to visit other places; so easy to get around.
The villa itself was lovely, with a small swimming pool - a tad chilly as it was April but we used it - and we had fresh eggs every morning. All but one of the rooms were en-suite with an additional bathroom on the landing and one downstairs. The villa was comfortable (other than hard pillows) and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.
We stayed for 5 days and wished we had booked for a week, and have come home with lots of fun memories! There were three families and all of us would recommend staying here and would seriously consider coming back another time but definitely to a slight bigger villa.
Thank you Mike for your positive feedback and once again we thank you for understanding our situation; we definitely want the best during our guests' stay. You are welcome to stay at any of our villas any time and we hope to see you back soon.
Absouletly amazing properties
We had an amazing week, the villas are really beautiful and we definitely will book again.
Beautiful home. Great kitchen and property. Josette is great!
We loved sitting on the back terrace enjoying the distant views of Valletta. The kitchen is huge with a marble topped table big enough for 10 people. Beautifully furnished with antique furniture. 5 bedrooms (4 on 2nd floor, 1 on 3rd floor), each with its own bathroom plus full bath downstairs.
Josette was at our “beck and call”, answering texts, coming over in person, etc. Thank you!
Parking is a bit tricky as is driving around Malta if you rent a car! But the buses are very easy to use. One stop is right at the villa to Marsaxlokk. One to Valletta is about 400 meters away. €1.50 per person good for 2 hours with transfers.
Tip: Use Google Maps public transportation to check bus schedules and locations!
Hi Terri, thank you for staying at our villa and for your kind and positive feedback! It is our pleasure to have guests like you and you're welcome to stay again any time!
Large villa but now feeling tired and less than great customer service
Stay: 7 days 27th Oct to 3rd Nov - family of 5 with youngest child 11
The good stuff:
The villa is large and each room has an ensuite.
The pool is large and the outside area is attractive.
The kitchen is a great size and fairly well equipped.
The living area is nice and the snooker table is a real plus.
The general location close to Valletta, Marsascala and Marsaxlokk is ok
would suit large group esp those without kids
The not so good stuff:
The beds are very hard and mattresses of poor quality. The sheets are equally poor for this kind of property.
The pool was dirty and had algae growing around the sides and the water drains all round the pool were broken and cracked in many places which would be dangerous for kids. Despite promises to clean/fix this was not done by the time we left after a week.
On arrival a bunch of things were broken - including the air conditioning meter, bulbs, outside lights, kettle. While some of these were addressed reasonably quickly many were still broken when we left.
The specific location is on a main road near a narrowing point and you have cars and horns going from as early as 6am.
The roof in the top room leaked and the room became quite damp. The owners say they fixed the problem but we did not have further rain to verify.
The TV and AV is not great - apparently the TV was new but it is linked via a very noisy SCART cable to a very old satellite box and on many channels the hum was unbearable. There is no DVD player which was a surprise for this type of property.
While it was easy to report issues and promises were made many things were not resolved. The owner explained in so many words "It is the end of the season, what do you expect" Well for this kind of money I do expect to at least get what we have paid for. Additional things such as Internet are very expensive - and given the problems we had the least we expected was an apology and some small concession such as the £70 for Internet to not be charged - but sadly neither were forthcoming.
I cannot recommend this property for families - better for large party type groups of younger people. Maybe customer service norms are different in Malta - it was our first time there - but the owners did not provide what we have experienced in Greece and France.
The guests requested early check in and we managed to get extra cleaners to manage a check in at 11am instead of 2pm. They checked in at 11am (3 hours before the actual Check in time).
We told them that we still had some minor repairs to do and we agreed that while they were out we would do these small jobs.
The guest wanted free wifi but we informed them that there was a charge for that. Following this these guests were inventing all types of excuses to complain.
We accommodated all requests and complaints including a request of a small water leak that was reported at 2am (in the middle of the night).
We run several villas and we know that some guests are more demanding than others – however some guests can never be happy no matter how hard we try to accommodate their requests.
We responded within minutes to all the requests and we informed these guests that the wifi and some other services were against a charge. They insisted that wifi was free. And they vowed that they would write a bad review on our villa. This is the reason we are writing a review on this guest. We rarely review like this to our guests and this can be checked in all our villas that are advertised on Homeaway.
We enjoyed our month at Blueberry Hills vey much. Josette and Chris are perfect hosts!
The house is perfect for a family as the pool is really big and very inviting! As the building is made of very thick honey-coloured limestone the rooms remain cool even on the hot days. Great kitchen. We only went out for dinner 3 times! We highly recommend it! Thanks Chris and Josette!
Hi David, thank you for staying in our villa! It was such a pleasure to host all of you the whole time and we look forward in welcoming you again any time!
Marsascala offers you a relaxed atmosphere while still boasting a myriad of activities. The immediate area includes a number of well known restaurants and entertainment venues. Be it a quick snack or a full blown fish banquet, it is only a short drive away. You can walk along the picturesque promenade while on your way to dinner and get to know the locals who will undoubtedly be coming from or going to the same restaurants. An evening walk or an early morning job along the popular Marsascala promenade is an experience in itself.
Marsascala is also very close to the old town of Zejtun which is a typical Maltese Village surrounding a church. At Zejtun you can truly experience the Maltese way of living. The well know fishing village of Marsaxlokk is also close by. Like Marsacala, this village is much sought after for its fish restaurants. Marsaxlokk is very popular with tourists and locals alike for its fresh fish market which is set up every morning. You should reserve a morning for a stroll through this busy market and enjoy seeing fresh Mediterranean fish being sold and then order a fish lunch in one of the many restaurants that encircle the picturesque bay. The bay is usually full of traditional Maltese fishing boats unless you visit during a time when the fishermen are out fishing of course!
