About Neville Galea

We are a family business that offers comfortable and luxurious holiday accommodation in Malta since 1981. The business is now run by the second generation and are full time on these properties and thus can offer the best service and 24/7 support.

Our apartments are conceived for holiday accommodation and not adapted apartments for this purpose. Thus all apartments are:

In the best touristic areas of Malta.

Have great sea views, country views or just off the seafront.

Are close to the bus stop, and the bus stop is on the main bus routes with many busses passing frequently. Thus reaching all the corners of Malta will be easy.

Close to the best beaches and touristic attractions & Maltese countryside. This makes it ideal for winter holidays, where you can enjoy long walks in the countryside to discover old footpaths, roman roads, romantic traditional farmhouses, chapels and towers, curt ruts and secluded beaches.

Close to shops, village centre and all amenities.

Close to bars, and restaurants. Some are also walking distance to casinos and nightclubs.

Close to and easily reachable to and from the ferries and the airport. Also all apartments are close to ferries and one day cruise departure points to discover Gozo and Comino (Blue Lagoon).

Neville Galea purchased this apartment in 2012

Guestbook comments from the manager

Välkomnandet vi fick var utöver vad vi förväntade oss. De Är väldigt noga med att förklara allt från boende till resterande ön. De hjälper till och bokar saker om man vill utan att ta ut någon provision vilket gör att flera saker blir något billigare genom dom. Finns inget negativt att nämna bara positiva saker! Prisvärt och mycket uppskattad att de är så hjälpsamma! Rekommenderar starkt att välja detta inte bara för det fina boendet utan mest för kommunikationen med värden, den blir mycket värd om man har liten tid på ön! Robin Renhult

The location of this property is ideal if you like calm and serene

  • 5 of 5

The property met our expectations. It had a lovely little balcony to enjoy the view for breakfast. We used it as a base and it was close to all the local beaches, eateries and places of interest. We stayed only 3 nights, arriving late and we were checked in by a smiling and friendly young man who helpfully showed us all we needed to know within the apartment. The apartment was extremely clean, the towels and bed linen provided were well appreciated. The kitchen was supplied with adequate utensils but maybe just a few more serving bowls, a coffee plunger and a plug-in kettle might be a well received addition. The washing machine was invaluable to us as we had limited luggage so we were washing and wearing.

Places we visited were Ghajn Tuffiefa (spelling?) beach, by far the best beach around. Popeye village was fun for all the family, the kids loved the inflatable in the sea and we had a nice lunch and enjoyed a day of looking at the film set from the sea. Mdina was a lovely, traditional old town and we walked around the fortress and had dinner overlooking the old town of Valletta and St Julian's from high up in the fortress at Fontanella Tea Room where they do tasty pizzas and delicious milkshakes for the kids.

The promenade along the road where the accommodation is, was fantastic for a morning run/walk and heading into Bugibba looking at the little points of interest along the way such as the fort and the little harbours where the fishermen put their boats in.

Down the road from Neville's place was a fantastic little restaurant for dinner, Gusto (I think) and for breakfast there was a homely little coffee shop near the convenience store, the lady running it is from Jersey and she was a delight to talk to.

On the whole we loved our short, brief stay at St Paul's and it was made all the more enjoyable by Neville's accommodation which was ideally located, well furnished and thoroughly clean. The provisions upon arrival were a welcome sight due to our late arrival and local shop not being open, thank you. Hopefully we'll revisit however we are always up for new adventures so if we get through our long bucket list, we'll be back for sure!

Neville's communication was fast and excellent. Everything was well explained and his helper upon checkin and check out, very professional and clear.

Thanks Neville, we commend you on your business professionalism and hospitality.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Apartment was well furnished with all our needs. Great location right on St Paul's Bay made a good base location for us to explore Malta and Gozo. There are several restaurants in the immediate area that made it easy to find good food. Owner was very responsive and easy to work with. Owner also helped us secure tickets for a boat trip to Comino and the Blue Lagoon. I highly recomend this property and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments. We are very happy that you liked the brand new apartment and the lovely seaviews and that you had a nice time in Malta. For the ants, yes, when you informed us we immediately came to the spot. We always advise guests not to leave any food open on the table as this attracts insects. For the transfer we have changed the driver now for picking you late so now he is not doing transfers for our guests anymore. Thank you and we look forward to your next holiday! ruth and neville

Great location, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our one year old and used the apartment as a base for exploring the island. The apartment was easy to find with plenty of space to park on the road during our stay in March. The inside is very spacious, well maintained and very well equipped for cooking basic meals. The owner was very helpful and easily contacted.

Beautiful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful seafront apartment had everything we needed to make our stay easy and relaxing. Kitchen was well equipped, everything was clean, bright and spacious...very comfortable. Neville and Ruth helped us organise a fantastic boat trip to the Blue Lagoon in Comino....wow! They were a great help! The apartment was faced with gorgeous view of the bay and also right on the main bus route that takes you into the center of St Paul's Bay and on to the rest of the island so we were never stuck for places to go. All in all a wonderful holiday!

St Paul's Bay is one of the most beautiful villages in Malta. The flat is located in a quiet area facing the fishing harbour. In fact one can enjoy seeing the fishermen coming in and going out of the harbour from the the terrace or in the sitting room. Just 150 m away there is also a small swimming zone which is very popular with the locals for a quick swim. St Paul’s Bay has a busy town centre full of shops, banks, pharmacies etc. This is 800m from the apartment. Bugibba and Qawra are new touristic areas in St Paul’s bay (1 km away) where one might find more bars, restaurants (also McDonalds and Pizza hut), diving and water sport centres, ferries to remote beaches and islands like Comino and Gozo.

The flat is also close to the best Sandy beaches like Mellieha Bay, Paradise Bay, Golden Sands, Gnejna Bay etc and Malta’s most intact countryside. In winter long walks and picnics in the countryside and along the sea are a must. In summer one can enjoy the sun at the beach in many ways from the most relaxing to the most adventurous ways. In the evening a walk on the promenade or a local village feast is a must. The bus stop is located in front of the door and the buses passes from the same street.
