About Joanna Bishop

We are a British family living in Hampshire with 2 teenage children. My husband works for a computer software company and I work with horses. My husband was born in Malta, has a Maltese mother and spent every summer as a child holidaying in Malta with relatives.

As a family we spent most summers in Malta and then decided to invest in a holiday apartment in the island we could use and rent out the rest of the time.

Having sought advice from family, we decided to buy an apartment at Tas Sellum before they were completed, knowing the builder Tumas produces apartments to the highest standard of quality on the islands.

The north of Malta had always been my favourite part of the island to visit - the best beaches and so much more peaceful.

Joanna Bishop purchased this apartment in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

1. We would all like to say Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment. You are very lucky to own such a lovely place and so new and quiet! You have a lovely view from your balcony and we managed to spend every evening enjoying some local wine sat admiring the bay.

2. We arrived back yesterday from Malta and I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time! The apartment and complex were beautiful and we had the best holiday ever. The weather was wonderful too. We always agreed that we would go somewhere different each year for our hols but we fell in love with Malta so we may well come back next year!

3. I just wanted to thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your lovely apartment, the surroundings and view were very peaceful and relaxing. Our holiday on Malta was excellent and your help with providing the transfer to and from the airport was brilliant. I would definitely recommend your apartment to family and friends.

Lovely apartment with a spectacualr view and position

  • 5 of 5

I holidayed here for a week in October with my husband and 14 year old daughter. Everything went very smoothly from our pick up at the airport by the charming Gino to when he dropped us off again one week later to go home. The apartment is in a beautiful new development with gated security. The pool is lovely (although perhaps a little chilly for October bathing). The apartment was spacious, clean and well appointed. Only minor glitches were that the kitchen tap leaked badly when turned on and the dishwasher door didn't open fully so could not be used, but these were very minor issues and did not impact on the holiday. Mellieha Bay is lovely with lots of handy supermarkets and restaurants/ cafes. We really enjoyed the Oh Yeah boating company where we did parasailing across Ghadira Bay, sea kayaking and a boat trip to Gozo and Comino. The weather was lovely and the sea was definitely warm enough for swimming. The local buses are good and I would not recommend hiring a car unless you are a very brave driver - the roads are extremely busy! Joanna the owner was exceptionally helpful and contactable. She even arranged for us to leave our luggage in the flat on the final day for much longer than normal as our flight was late in the evening. We really loved our Malta autumn break and would definitely consider going back. Alyson and Family, Scotland

Great apartment with fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

A spacious apartment with fantastic views over the harbour. Everything you need is in the apartment. Secure and friendly complex. Plenty of bars/restaurants in walking distance. Would definitely stay again. Joanna made sure everything went well and she provided lots of information. She also responded to emails very quickly. Worth all 5 stars

Perfect base for exploring Malta and Gozo

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful sunny holiday in Malta staying at this FANTASTIC apartment. The views from the balcony are stunning overlooking the bay. The apartment is equipped with everything you could need and more and it is well situated for exploring Malta and very handy for the ferry to Gozo. The owners were very helpful and provided information both about the apartment and Malta itself. The local village is within walking distance and has several nice restaurants, plus the beach is a short walk away. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to visit Malta and definitely hope to return one day.

Great apartment with a sea view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment in October for 10 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. On arrival we received a welcome pack with tea, coffee, bread, butter, eggs, and water. Spacious apartment with large balcony and sea view. Very quiet gated community with underground parking space. A 10 minute stroll to the beach. Bars and restaurants all within walking distance. If we come back to Malta we would definitely stay at this apartment. If you are visiting Malta we would highly recommend this apartment.

Excellent apartment in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time staying here and didn’t feel that the photos of the apartment on the website did it justice! The apartment was clean, modern and spacious and is set in a lovely, quiet complex. There seemed to be some Maltese families living in the apartments or staying in them temporarily, with very polite children who played by the pool.

The lounge area was very comfortable with a large sofa and coffee table. The kitchen had all cutlery and equipment we needed to prepare meals and the dining area was well presented. The main bedroom was very big and the bathroom is attached to this which was convenient for getting ready. There is a decent sized balcony with a wooden table and chairs for sitting out and we even sun bathed on sun loungers out there too.

The complex has some rules including that no clothes or towels should be visibly hung on the balcony. This was not a problem since a low level drying rack was provided so you can still hang things out to dry. A washing machine and drying machine are provided in the main bathroom. The hot water is operated by a switch you need to put on in advance. This was a little bit inconvenient if you wanted a warm shower as soon as you get in but it’s not the end of the world!

The apartment was well stocked with books and leaflets containing information about Malta and the owners are obviously very knowledgeable and keen to share their tips with guests via the apartment information provided. Additionally, there were a good number of DVDs in the apartment in case of a rainy day! The apartment has wifi although we found that the signal strength was not always strong, especially if you move away from the lounge area. Lightweight sun beds are provided which are comfortable and easy to carry, especially since there is a side door from the apartment, straight down to the pool.

Melieha is a lovely place to stay but is not for the party-goer! We had some meals out, walked round the bay, sun bathed on the beach and by the pool and sat out on the peaceful balcony with a glass of wine - just what we wanted! There is a fairly steep hill up to the village but the bay is only a five minute walk from the apartment and has shops and restaurants. There are also frequent, air conditioned buses which will take you up the hill to the village for a couple of euros (or you can buy a travel card for cheaper travel). It’s an excellent location for trips all over Malta and Gozo.
