The apartment is as shown in the photo's with the fabulous views and excellent location within easy reach of very good restaurants, bars, shops, transport etc. and we have just spent a very enjoyable two weeks there. It could do with some updating but as mentioned in other reviews, it has everything needed for a comfortable stay.
The kitchen is well equipped with facility to prepare and cook a full meal if required - but why would you want to with the superb selection of restaurants on your doorstep or within 10 minutes walk? The washing machine is an absolute bonus and the large airer was well used together with the hanging space on the rear balcony.
The lounge has two large comfortable settees perfectly positioned to watch the extensive selection of programmes and films available on the TV, and if that wasn't enough entertainment, the wi-fi was quick and worked perfectly. Although the weather was a little unsettled, we didn't use the heater but nice to know it was there if the temperature dropped!
The bathroom was adequate, good shower, nice deep bath (smallish - good for me at 5'4" but a little small for DH at 6'4"!), water heater worked perfectly and provided ample amounts of hot water about 30 minutes after being switched on.
Bedroom has functional furniture, a wardrobe with plenty of hanging space, a chest of drawers, bedside cabinets and a bedstead with shelves and little cubby holes - all very useful spaces and more than enough for all our bits.
As mentioned, the weather was a little unsettled, a bit of sun, a bit of rain and a couple of storms so we didn't get the full use of the balconies but the views from the front are amazing - across and around the bay, the to-ing and fro-ing of the boats and the endless fascination of people watching.
We hired a car for 3 days from a company a few doors down from the apartment and drove all over the island, enjoying the beaches and the historical sites, finding some (very!) rural roads and taking note of the places we want to return to. We managed to park in the road behind the apartment each night without too much problem ready for the next days' adventures.
Neville, Ruth and Salvatore (who met us at the apartment for check-in and out) were very easy to deal with, both before and during our stay, everything was clearly explained from initial booking to how everything worked when we got there and we look forward to another stay with them when we return to do all the things we didn't have time for
Excellent location where you can easily get the ferry into Valletta, only takes 5 mins (or take the local bus). Then a few mins walk to Valletta bus station where you can get buses everywhere. Nice local restaurants and a couple of handy shops for provisions. House is full of character with a nice roof terrace, but over 4 levels, so lots of steps! Ramon is extremely helpful & friendly, couldn't hope for a better host. Thoroughly recommended.
