“Beautiful Palace !”
Reviewed 24 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This is a beautiful house, modern , clean, elevated and very big inside. Its got everything you could need. With a beautiful marble floor and fabulous heavy curtains.
Its got a fantastic huge TV, with lots of wonderful ENGLISH SPEAKING News channels English, Russian, American, all English speaking (this is becoming more difficult to get in Spanish houses).
The hosts Caroline and Jeff are really sweet and will do anything they can for you.
Their rental prices are also very reasonable and fair.

There is also a beautiful swimming pool there and a HUGE veranda for strolling around. We even met Caroline's Mum, Tessa who was a lovely nice lady.
Mellihia is a very nice town also. With a fabulous Catholic church and lots of history. A great beach also - if you get the weather.

However.....an honest review is not a balanced review if it does not also include the negative and bad points also. So here's the negatives.

They charge you for EVERYTHING ! and try to sell you lots of rubbishy tours. You'll even be charged for HEAT !! and wait for it..... you,ll also be charged for the WASHING MACHINE !!
My wife and I have been travelling the world for nearly 40 years - and we've NEVER been charged to use a washing machine.

Also, the check out time is ridiculously early - at 10am No Villa or hotel anywhere throws you out at 10am.
If you do check out later - they'll charge you 25 euro.
Even if there is nobody else checking in the same day - they'll still charge you 25 euro. I thought this was a bit mean and grabby.

These though are only small complaints and are not that important and would never stop me staying there again - or recommending to anyone else, to stay there.
Its a beautiful house. A beautiful place. With beautiful people.

Dear Ciaran,

Thanks a lot for the positive comments and the 5 star rating you left us on TripAdvisor. We really appreciate when our guests take their time to let us know about their stay at our Villa. Though, we’re quite baffled with the things you’ve listed as bad points. Please note that my reply is by no means intended to counteract your comments. I just want to clarify a few things in the interest of our future guests.

The total price quoted, being it on TripAdvisor, or any other portal website, is the full price for the Villa as a self catering accommodation and includes all the necessary commodities to make a holiday complete, including, but not limited to, water and electricity, water heating, cooking facilities, all kitchen equipment, cooling fans, Wi-Fi, the use of surrounding terrace, and the use of the vast fresh water swimming pool and its surrounding deck area. The only mandatory additional fee that has to be paid on top of the total price is the ‘Eco Contribution Tax’ which is imposed by the Malta Tourism Authority, and legally we cannot include it in the total price. If the guests would like to make use of the air conditioners or washing machine, they can do so for an additional charge, only to cover its running costs. We think that this is the fairest approach out of all the options, rather than increasing our rental prices to cover the running costs of ACs and washing machine whether they’ve been used or not!

Being it a three bedroom villa, with a capacity of 8 guests, our main guests would be families with children, and therefore we aim to provide an affordable family holiday accommodation. Hence we keep our prices fairly reasonable when compared to similar properties within the area.

As soon as our guests arrive at the villa it is our custom to show them round the villa to familiarise themselves with the layout of the accommodation and where the most important things are. Together with our information booklet, we’ve gathered a few tours' leaflets that are popular and reliable. We ask our guests that if they need any help in booking any of the tours or would like us to book it for them, we’re more than happy to do so.

As with any other accommodation, being it a self catering villa or a hotel, we have our stipulated check in and check out times, which are detailed on the ‘check in/check out information section’. The 4 hour period between the check in and the check out time will give us just enough time to clean and prepare the villa, and its surrounding terraces, for the next guests.

If anyone has any questions, or would like further information about our Villa or any other services, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

On behalf of my family, I would like to wish you all great health, happiness and prosperity for the New Year!

Best wishes,

Jeff

Reviewed 16 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We stayed at the Villa High noon upper villa in late October early November 2017.

Pre arrival, Jeff (the owner) could not have been more helpful. He arranged airport transfers (turned up to get us himself!) and his wife Caroline sorted out a hire car for us. They also arranged babysitting for our 2 year old so that we could have a few peaceful adult dinners.

The Villa

Very comfortable with good children's facilities. We have one 2 year old son who is very active. The cot provided was great for us... If you have an escape artist toddler then consider bringing a travel cot or putting them in a bed. The rooms were dark enough for daytime naps with the curtains drawn. Jeff and Caroline provided a very nice high chair. In the outdoor cupboard there were a few toy cars and trucks that our son really enjoyed, as well as multiple buckets and spade and a few pool toys.

The beds were very comfortable. There is a family bathroom and a shower room. There is a fold out double sofa bed in the living room, so theoretically one could sleep 8 in this villa. The kitchen has a gas stove, grill and oven, fridge freezer and kettle. Everything was scrupulously clean. Outside there is a barbeque, washing machine (available for a €10 fee) and multiple washing lines. There's plenty of room to stretch out on a sunbed or run around with toy cars! A nice surprise was the tortoise that live in the garden. He comes out for his lunch every day. Our son was thrilled.

The pool is accessed via stairs and is in front of the lower villa. The pool is gated and not easy for little hands to open. It isn't heated - not a problem for us as the sea was warm. Once again it was really really clean.

The surrounding area has plenty of decent shops for basics, a supermarket and a small playground. Jeff's family live on the top floor and everyone was really kind and friendly.

Overall it was exactly as advertised, Jeff and Caroline made us really welcome and it was as easy as a holiday with a toddler can be.

We'll definitely be back!

“Fantastic villa with fantastic service from our hosts”
Reviewed 23 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Stayed at villa Highnoon in Sept 2017, the villa was ideal for our group of six people with two couples having double rooms and two others a twin bedded room. There was also a very comfortable extra double bed in the quite private end of the living room on which one person chose to sleep throughout the holiday.
We decided to use our hosts for the transfers to and from the airport, good choice with them giving us a tour of places of interest, shops, eating places as well as some of the local bars etc. Our hosts could not have been more pleasant or helpful, anything we asked / requested was provided and speedily to.
The nearest eating places were a mere five minutes walk as was the nearest bar. Shops ie supermarket was only another five minutes farther on and newspapers fruit shops etc the same.
I would highly recommend the villa upper highnoon to anyone who wants a highly relaxing stay with plenty of space both inside the villa and outside - the sun terrace is really good with shade available if required and very good facilities all round an excellent choice.

“Perfect family friendly villa, with pool”
Reviewed 17 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We booked both the upper and lower villas, for all our family. This is our sixth visit to "Highnoon" and was excellent as usual. The upgrades to upper Highnoon are great. We all loved the pool, which was clean and well serviced. Lovely views from the terrace over the valley and to the sea. We plan to visit again soon.

From being met at the airport to the return journey we could not fault this holiday. The villa is spacious and absolutely spotless and contains everything you could need. The pool is fabulous and cleaned daily. The supermarket is a short distance away and reasonably priced. Restaurants are also within walking distance albeit uphill!!! Caroline and Jeff, the owners are very friendly and helpful. I would have no hesitations about recommending this villa
