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.

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.

A super week in your lovely apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in your wonderful apartment. This was our first holiday in Malta and your apartment in the north of the island was perfect for us. The apartment was extremely clean and spacious, and very well equipped. The pool was superb and we spent many an hour sitting beside it. The balcony was also superb and we had our breakfast on the balcony overlooking the pool and the sea every morning. Our car hire worked well for us too, and we spent time out and about. The apartment is well placed to get everywhere on the island and we visited some of the many cultural and historical sites that Malta has to offer. My dealings with the owner of the apartment were always prompt and very courteous, and my very minor queries were answered quickly. We also very much appreciated the fact that we could access the apartment as soon as we arrived as the local manager had arranged for the apartment to be cleaned a bit earlier than normal. All in all a most enjoyable week and I would absolutely recommend this apartment to others. We will be back. Many thanks. Liz B

Excellent Location and Complex

  • 5 of 5

From the original enquiry, through to the welcome from Gino at the airport, nothing to fault. Beautiful apartment, wonderful location, peaceful, but not too far from beach and village centre and restaurants. Hopefully, will be back for return visit.

Fantastic Tas Sellum Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment with a great location. The apartment is fully equipped in every way and it is so handy that is also has a dishwasher.

When we were there we did not use the pool much as we preferred Mellieha beach with the super San Remo snack bar.

The master bedroom is excellant and my daughter and her friend who shared the other bedroom said the two singles beds were very comfortable.

Note for any first timers to Malta the plugs are the same as UK sockets so you don't need to take your euro plugs.

Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a really enjoyable holiday in Malta and found the location and views from the apartment fantastic. The apartment itself is fabulous and has excellent facilities and must be one of the best in the complex.The surrounding area seemed to retain the Maltese character and had a very relaxed atmosphere. We would have no doubt in recommending this apartment and the area in which it is located. Excellent communications with Joanna and detail given helped us a lot during our stay. We used Gino the taxi driver from/to the airport and he was polite and prompt. Many thanks.
