You needn't worry about booking this apartment. Communication with the owner was great, the place spotlessly clean and exactly as portrayed in the photo's. We were met by housekeeper Tania who had even laid in some basic provisions and took time to explain some practicalities, which was really appreciated.
The location is excellent. Although on the main Cirkewwa road, road noise is minimal and makes travel very easy. The apartment has it's own parking space (don't hire anything big - good general advice for driving around Malta!) and there are bus stops right outside where you can hop on a bus north or south to practically anywhere. Unless you're travelling to one of the beaches or somewhere a little 'off plan' then taking the bus to Sliema or Valetta is by far the easiest option.
Back to the apartment: you should want for nothing - it's extremely well equipped, everything works as it should, there is extra bedding if the weather's a bit cool and good a/c for the summer months. The balcony gets the sun in the mornings, so you can enjoy breakfast overlooking the bay, relax in the shade later in the day, or enjoy a glass of wine as you watch fireworks over St Paul's Bay in the evening (if you're lucky).
At the bottom of the hill leading to the apartment is an excellent convenience store which sells all manner of provisions including fresh bread. Next to the foodstore is a car park where there are a couple of fresh fruit and veg stalls, again with lovely produce. On the way up the hill are a selection of restaurants (including Chinese, Greek and Indian) where we enjoyed some really good and reasonably-priced meals in the evening. It was interesting to notice the number of local people who dine there - always a good sign.
So - there you have it. We thought that this was a really well-appointed apartment, in a good location, and we'd certainly recommend it.
This has got to be one of the nicest places we have stayed. The appartment had everything you could possibly need. James had put some lovely food in the fridge and wine and beer for us as well. The appartment was fully equipped even having binoculars so you could watch the boats on the bay. The views from the balcony were wow...It was extremely quiet in the appartment and would defently
recommended this to my friends.
Our booking was very easy and the owner responded very quickly to any enquiry.
We were met by Gillian who showed us around and was very helpful with any questions we had. The view from the apartment is stunning. The apartment was very comfortable & very well equipped; it was like home from home but with a lovely view.
The owners had thoughtfully left a fridge stocked with items that made it unnecessary to go off shopping as soon as we arrived, there were also toiletries in the bathroom and a good supply of towels & bed linen, ideal as the weather was hot.
Would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation.
Everything went as said in information, greeted by Tania, no problems whilst away, James kept in touch if we needed anything, (which we didn't!)
Beautiful views restuarants handy to walk of an evening.
Had a lovely time
