|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Hilltop house is situated in the top most, peaceful part of St Julians set on top side of Saint Anthony valley, enjoying one of the most stunning views of Balluta Bay. Also making it an idea holiday for those who do not wish to rent a car as it is minutes way from any amenity. However, if one wants to enjoy a lazy holiday renting a car private parking is also available exactly infront of the house.
The house was built long ago but was newly refurbished given a modern twist leaving touches of the old Maltese style of building keeping in mind comfort, still visible the wooden beams and stone stairs. The house has an open plan kitchen living area on the ground floor leading to a wide balcony enjoying the views of Balluta bay. The kitchen is fully equipped with 5 seating spaces at the dining table. Also the living area can accommodate 5 people comfortably with a 32” LED tv. Wifi internet and cable tv come complementary.
Upstairs one can find the main bedroom with a double bed and a spare bedroom with 3 single beds which can be modified into another double upon request. Both bedrooms have air conditioning which is a must in our hot summers. The house has two bathrooms. A main bathroom with a bath tub upstairs and another one with shower downstairs all meticulously finished paying attention to every detail.
The house offers also a relaxing area on the roof where you can sun bath during the day on the deck area and even have lunch or a BBQ during the eve in the eating area. One can find a seating area for 6 people upstairs with a gas bbq.

Franco and Ralph thanks for all, we had a great time! Freek
This was the first time we had used Short Lets Malta and overall we had a most comfortable and enjoyable stay. At point of booking and in advance of holiday Ralph was very prompt in responding to various queries, which was reassuring.
On arrival we were met by Victoria who showed us round the house and answered all our questions. The house is very comfortable, spacious and has effective air conditioning which was essential during our stay in August. The roof top area affords a beautiful view over the bay while providing seating in shaded and open areas.
One of the biggest plus points is the ability to park your car outside the front door, although the width of the lane makes turning challenging! Parking spaces on the street in this area are hard to find so having effectively a private space is a real advantage.
The mini safe in the main bedroom was great for storing passports etc.
Although not necessarily a problem in all situations, the only access to the roof top is through the second bedroom. This means if friends or family want to have an early night it is difficult for others to use the roof without disturbing them. You may also be impacted late at night or early in the morning by noise from the pool next door.
Overall we had a great holiday, the Short Lets team were great to deal with and we would definitely use them again.
Everything went smoothly from the moment of reservation until check-out.
Ralph answered quickly and politely to our questions. He was waiting for us at the apartment on our arrival and gave us a tour in the apartment. He also informed us about the nearby supermarkets and restaurants.
The apartment itself was amazing and just like in the pictures. Also the location was perfect. Nothing bad to say about the place. I would highly recommend it to everyone!
Thank you Ralph for the great stay!
This apartment is in a perfect location close to all amenities. Very spacious and modern with a sun terrace which gets the sun all day is a bonus. Couldn't recommend more!! Ralph provided great customer service with info about everything. Highly recommended!!
If you consider to go to Malta, I would definitely reccomend this apartment! I have had a very nice stay in this beautiful apartment. It was very clean and modern and it has a lot of luxe appliances. It is near by a supermarket, busstop, several restaurants and the beach.
We had a perfect stay in Ralph's apartment in St Julian Bay!
Picked up from the airport and delivered to the font door of an apartment that is truly in a pristine state. Attention has been payed to every little detail. It is actually as great as it looks on the photos. And spotlessly clean!
Located at a 2 min walk from the boulevard with restaurants, shops... and our diving center, couldn't be better.
Till a few years ago , St Julians was a quiet fishing village. Nowadays development has changed it completely and it spreads all round St. Georges Bay, Spinola Bay, and Balluta Bay.. Most of the elegant houses along the shore line have gone to be replaced by blocks of apartments, restaurants, bars , cafes and hotels. The roads leading to St Julians village (now a town) proper remain largely untouched. The best preserved are in the area of Balluta Bay. A few villas with beautiful facades and large gardens. One villa has been converted into a restaurant forming part of Le Meridien Hotel. There is also the large neo-gothic Carmelite Chuch in the midst of small houses that used to be summer residences for the rich Valletta residents. There is a large block of apartments built in the art nouveau style overlooking the square where you can sit and have a coffe or drink and watch the world go by.
Back in picturesque Spinola Bay there are still a number of old boat houses belonging to the fishermen that still remain with their traditional fishing boats sheltering in the bay. Some boat houses have been converted into restaurants which are quieter and romantic. The bay is particularly lovely in the evenings with the lights of the restaurants and street lighting reflecting in the calm water of the bay. On the other side of the bay is the promenade (very popular) which goes all the way to Sliema and beyond. Ideal for an evening stroll or to sit at a bar/cafe and people watch.
Up the hill you will find Portomaso - a private yacht marina with restaurants and bars, a shopping complex and apartments (all very upmarket) with a lovely atmosphere. Nearby is the Hilton. There are a number of 5* hotels - all overlooking the sea on the coast north of Paceville. There is also a Casino at the Dragonara and another at Portomaso .
