Top 5 Holiday Rentals Options in Malta

Malta is a gorgeous region with so much to offer, and to truly enjoy it means booking just the right accommodation for your needs. One of the criteria that we use in choosing well-situated accommodation is considering the property’s proximity to popular locations, so that you can enjoy convenient access to the activities you enjoy, as well as the beautiful sound of ocean waves crashing against the beach. Some of the most popular options include rental villas, cottages, farmhouses and apartments, and our list (courtesy ofShort Lets Malta) gives you a window into just a few of these spectacular options for you to choose from.

Villa Naspla

This charming villa is centrally located in a quiet region of Mosta, one of Malta’s most historic towns, placing you within walking distance to the region’s churches, gardens and monuments, most of which you’d have to catch a taxi to see. With three en-suite bedrooms and a refreshing pool to lounge in, this property is a real gem, and you’d be hard pressed to find a villa that’s more authentic in its expression of Maltese culture and heritage.

  1. Traditional Farmhouse in a boutique style

Farmhouses in Malta

Farmhouses in Malta are not exactly what you’d expect in that most of them have either been recently built or restored to appeal to the modern tourist. Nevertheless, they still retain the essence of Maltese architecture through unique details and well-appointed décor that gives you a taste of what Maltese life is all about. In this particular farmhouse you’ll find three spacious bedrooms which could easily fit six people, large living and dining areas, a fully equipped kitchen, and very comfortable design with wide open spaces that make it an ideal setting for a family holiday.

  1. Cottage in Peaceful location in Wardija near St Pauls Bay

Wardija near St Pauls Bay

With its large private pool and extensive gardens, this one of a kind cottage sits next to a centuries old main house where the owners live, which means great service and very well-kept property for you to enjoy. This self-catering cottage can comfortably accommodate three people, and is perfectly situated in the quiet area of Wardija, which is close to St Paul’s Bay- a famed tourist spot. Just be sure to rent out a car during your stay, as public transport is hard to come by in this area. Otherwise, this is an immaculate property with a pool that’s surrounded by relaxing loungers and a maid service that includes the provisions of fresh linen and towels for your utmost convenience.


Choosing the right property rental when planning your vacation is very important for the maximum enjoyment for you and your family. Many of these properties also come with all the amenities you’d expect from a luxury accommodation, including entertainment features like free WiFi, TV, and DVDs, and are often a short stroll from many a historic site, waterfront marina and surrounding amenities, while giving you convenient access to activities like fishing, deep sea diving, golf, kayaking, snorkelling, jet and water skiing, tennis and swimming.
