We had stayed in Malta many times and this property is in a perfect location to wander into the centre and stumbling upon many places to eat and drink, the property has been restored to it's original build at a high standard, would recommend to all!!!

I had looked at several holiday lets in Malta and found them too small/too dark/too expensive/lacking outside space or in holiday complexes, which did not interest us. Richard’s Sunny Penthouse, however, is clean, comfortable, bright, spacious and tasteful. I loved the tiling, particularly in the bathrooms, and of course the large terrace is a major attraction. We needed the awning, playing musical chairs to stay in the shade, because it certainly lived up to its sunny name. In the evenings it was great for watching the fireworks - lower down you would only hear the bangs but not see the flashes. These were not cheap pyrotechnics! The apartment is well equipped, though when I did ask Richard for a few small items he brought them round the next day, even though I had said there was no hurry. We were in no doubt we could have asked for his help and he would have provided it without hesitation. We went as a couple and it was great to have a bathroom each! Nice also to have free use of the telephone for all Malta destinations. We took the car and it was very handy to have underground parking right there, and out of the sun. With the car, you get a taxi service to and from the airport, and that saves a lot of hanging around. A Garmin satnav was provided but I preferred to use the GPS and map app on my phone. Traffic can be slow, but we had no complaints about Maltese drivers. The Convenience Store in the same block was surprisingly well stocked and there is also an Arkadia/Waitrose (yes!) really close by. The apartment is in a residential area and there are no restaurants or cafes handy, but the rest of the island is very accessible from this location. Recommended sights to see: Blue Grotto, Hagar Qim and Mnajdra temples, Marsaxlokk, Mdina, catacombs, Mosta Rotunda, cruise round the harbours from Sliema, Valetta, Vittoriosa (Birgu) and Gozo (particularly Xlendi). There are numerous places to swim, not many with sand but the rocky places have steps into the sea. Best restaurants: Fontanella in Mdina for the view, Terrazzo, up the hill in Xlendi (Gozo) for its sheer pleasantness, Rampila in Valetta for the romantic terrace in the ramparts, Medina in Mdina for its beautiful courtyard and superb food, and Café Reale in the square in Xaghra (Gozo) for providing the stand-out taste of the holiday for me in the shape of its melon sorbet, though its other cakes and ice creams were extremely tempting. We also had nice omelettes for lunch there.
