Guestbook comments from the manager

Villa Strawberry is quaint and so warm.. I never imagined that Malta could be so beautiful and that there would be so much to see and do even in Winter !

well, where to start ?

Thanks to Chris and his Josette who simply arranged a perfect stay for us. A cosy farmhouse, equipped with all things you need, all perfect clean and the atmosphere you cannot disbribe, you have to feel it. Coming since 30 years to Malta this was the first time ever I stayed in the South of the Island. A perfect combination of holiday and business (a lot of meetings I had at the pool site...) and a hospitality I have not met before (in the North of the Island)....So, this place I can highly recommend to all who want to have a feeling of the real Malta (just a bit away from the hectic Sliema / St. Julians / Buggiba area) and beside this...a big THANK YOU to Chris and his family for making this happen.

Good base

  • 5 of 5

A very charming house. We were met by Josette, the owner, who handed us the keys and answered our queries. The house itself is charming and provided us with a good base to tour the island which is beautiful. Next time will try to come in summer to be able to enjoy the pool!

A very charming house restored to its original features. It provided a lovely base to explore Malta. The house has a well-equipped kitchen and all necessities. It was very clean and the owners were very helpful. The pool area was lovely as well. Would surely recommend it!

Quaint villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house recently and must say that it was a relaxing holiday. The house is a typical Maltese farmhouse with swimming pool. It provided all necessary amenities and we all loved chilling out by the pool and having barbecues in the evening. Overall we really enjoyed our stay!

A very well-kept, well-equipped and clean villa in a quiet location. We opted to spend our holiday in a self-catering villa as we had two of our children and in-laws staying with us. We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, relaxing by the pool and organizing barbecues in the evening! A truly enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Will be back next year!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our two young boys (aged 4 and 1) and loved it. We rented a car and this was a great home base for us to explore the rest of Malta from. We especially loved being able to come home after a busy day exploring and cool off in our own pool. Our 4 year old even learned to swim on his own. He'll never forget having his own pool!

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!
