We were very pleased with this booking. The location was perfect for us, on the fringes of Marsaskala, where it meets the northern margin of St. Thomas Bay. Across the main road [200m distance] is a popular but uncrowded [in May] swimming area, flat and rocky but with rails and ladders for easy access to the sea, and demarcated swimming area extending across the bay. Ideal if you are keen to swim. This area would not be so good for children or people with impaired mobility, but there is a mini-beach resort and a small sandy beach 5 minutes walk away. There are some nearby restaurants and bars. There is a small supermarket and a pharmacy a couple of minutes walk away. There was a mobile fruit and veg stall at the end of the road most days. Marsaskala centre is 15 minutes walk from the apartment, or a couple of minutes on the bus. The location was quiet, though there was some party noise on the Saturday night form the club nearby on the main road.
Booking was quick and easy, Christina responded promptly to all queries, and arranged our transport from the airport. We arrived after midnight, but she was at the apartment to meet us. There was bread cheese and ham in the fridge for us which was most welcome. Christina was also flexible and prompt about check-out. The apartment was spacious, comfortable, and very clean. We didn't need the air con much, but it seemed to work well. There was a partial view across St. Thomas Bay from the big bay window at the front. The main living area was bright and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped for self-catering. The bedrooms were well appointed and the beds comfortable. The master bedroom had just two small windows at ceiling height, so no view, but it is a big room with plenty of mirrors and lights so felt spacious enough. The second bedroom was smaller but adequate and the third bedroom is a small room with a single bed - these two bedrooms had windows opening into enclosed spaces , so again no views. The main bathroom was spacious and everything worked well. There are two small outdoor areas, one off the front bay window, and one opening from the main bedroom's en-suite, but neither really constitute living space. Two suggestions: the kitchen really needs a coffee maker, and the plastic mattress covers were a bit of a let down, not in keeping with the overall standard - cotton would be better. These are minor quibbles, we really enjoyed our stay in this lovely well located apartment, and we'd highly recommend it.
We stayed in this apartment for a week in July. Christina was very professional to deal with from the beginning and always very prompt in getting back with answers to any queries we had.
Apartment itself is very well maintained, comfortable and exactly as it was described. Situated In a great location only 15 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes walking distance to the beach.
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment and Christina was always available and helpful. We have no hesitation recommending this apartment for a stay in Malta.

I stayed here in july for two weeks with my husband and three of my children aged 7,8,18.
The flat is very new and modern , well set out with everything you will need for your stay, the washing machine was very useful for us as having children (Christina told me to use her own washing powder to save buying any, a very nice thing to say), the air-conditioning was also ideal, each room also had fans in if you wished to use them, on arrival the flat was very clean, fresh towels and plenty of them, fresh bedding and extra covers pillows if needed. Christina the owner met us there, she had supplied us with a basic basket of milk, bread ham, cheese, biscuits and tea, which was a very nice touch, it was the little things that we found useful that were there for us e.g bin liners , shopping bags. we were shown around the flat, Christina was a nice and welcoming host, you are around 500 meters from st thomas bay, an easy walk. The road the flat is on is very quiet, and in walking distance to a shop. i would willingly stay here again, if i could say a negative and this is a very minor one, that in the room our smaller children used there was only a thin curtain up at the window so the room became light early,
I would say that this flat was at the top end of our budget, but what a great place to stay.
I have recommended this flat to several people already and would happily stay in it again.
