After visiting Malta several times we decided to stay in an apartment on this trip. We made the perfect choice because Martin's (great person to deal with) apartment was in a ideal location positioned between St. Julians and Sliema both within walking distance and close to restaurants and shops. The apartment itself had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable with a lovely view over the ocean. Felix was a great help both on arrival and departure. Thank you for the wake up call! We would definitely stay there again when we return to Malta.
Great views from the balcony over the seafront and towards St Julian’s Bay. Good location with bus stops within a few steps of front door. Nice walk from apartment towards St Georges Bay and Sliema Ferries. Good communication with Martin the owner and Felix the manager. The apartment was clean and also cleaned the second week of our stay. The cleaner was very friendly. Unfortunately on arrival we found there was no hair dryer, steam iron or airer but all were provided when I emailed Martin. Plus a new ironing board was provided. The TV gets loads channels but not BBC1, 2, ITV, Channel 4 or 5. Luckily we had the internet as we could get the radio and British TV channels via our Tablet. This apartment is in a very good location for getting around but unfortunately very tired and very noisy. Although bathroom has a Jacuzzi there is a shower but not powerful and the shower screen is old and damaged and in need of immediate replacing. The bedroom would benefit from wardrobes and drawers. The kitchen area is old and dated and in need of updating. The table and chairs are tired and warn and need replacing as do much of the furnishings. The apartment is not double glazed and being on the seafront and corner there is a lot of traffic noise all hours of the day and night. Travel around the island was easy on the bus and great value 6.5 euro for a weekly travel anywhere ticket. There are many restaurants along the seafront. There is a grocer in the side street where you can get most things and also found a supermarket in St Julian's Bay and in Sliema – both were on the bus route. We enjoyed our stay in Malta and got to see most of the island. Found the people to be very friendly but do move at their own pace. Travelling on the bus was an experience with 37 seated and 34 standing and some drivers used their mobiles whilst driving - not good practice. Malta has few sandy beaches. The history of Malta is a long and colourful one dating back to the dawn of civilisation.
We would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It's in a wonderful position overlooking Balutta Bay, with a small sandy beach only metres away. We enjoyed breakfasting on the balcony each day, and loved exploring the island again on the buses. Everything we needed was provided - the apartment is very well equipped for self-catering. Felix, the local contact, was charming and extremely helpful.
Although it didn't say on the arrival instructions, we were able to catch the X2 Express Bus from the airport, which stops right outside the apartment at the bus stop called 'Antik'. At the airport it says on the front of the bus (and the timetables) that it's going to St Julian's, but if you just stay on when it gets there, it goes on to Sliema, and then back to the airport. So you arrive from the airport, and depart to the airport on the same side of the road (directly opposite the front of the apartment).
We would love to stay in the apartment again - but for a bit longer next time!
We were very impressed with this apartment. It was so well-equipped you couldn't want for anything and it was great to have plenty of hot water available at all times. Not only that, there was heating/air conditioning to keep you warm, especially in the evenings when temperatures had cooled down. The apartment is well placed with bus stops virtually outside the door, giving easy access to all parts of the island. Felix [the agent] was very friendly and helpful, making all the arrangements for taxis to and from the airport. There is a handy mini-supermarket just round the corner and plenty of places to eat nearby if you want to. I would certainly recommend this property.
Hi Martin, Thank you very much for everything - the location was everything we wanted. It was easy to get around on the bus, grocery stores were near-by, and the view was wonderful. The apartment was great and so was the internet. We were in constant touch with our family in Canada. The rides to and from the airport were prompt and courteous. We had a wonderful holiday.
The Location of this apartment is second to none. The view from the Juliette balcony is spectacular overlooking the sea/ promenade and sandy beach.
Ideal for families with young Children as the beach is just across the road and where you will find numerous play areas with slides / swings etc. various eateries / grocery shop can be found close by. A car is not necessary as the bus terminus is across the road and a quick bus journey takes you into the main terminus in Valletta.
The apartment is comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped.
Airport transfers were reassuringly well organsied always on time.. and felix (caretaker) was friendly and helpful. A great holiday was had by all! Sure to visit again
