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).

We are fully dedicated to our properties and guests. We are always a phone call away and try to be as helpful as possible. We offer and can give information before clients come to Malta (or on arrival), both about our properties and about Malta in general. We offer to book airport transfers by taxi or minibus at the best prices by trustworthy drivers.

We offer to help book car hire at the lowest prices. Also we can arrange for motorbike, mountain bike, and boat hire. We also can arrange fishing trips with fulltime and part time fishermen.

On arrival we meet you personally at the property and see that all is up to your satisfaction. We also offer to give you tips for your holiday according to the season and your likes and preferences.

Neville Galea purchased this apartment in 1960

Why Neville Galea chose St Paul's Bay

Semi-detached fully equipped apartment with a good size sea view terrace with barbecue in a quiet area of St Paul's Bay but still central to everything.

What makes this apartment unique

During your stay we offer 24/7 support, a fast maintenance and replacement service should anything go wrong in the property.

All our properties are by far the best kept as we do an ongoing maintenance.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Helpful host. Nice flat for grown ups, not too far from buses to e.g Gozo, Camino or Golden Bay. Not too far from shops and restaurants. Nice harbourwalk not far away from the flat. Swimmingareas as well. But if you want sunbathing - go to one off the nice beaches short busrides away.

Overall a great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Me and my friends stayed one week at this apartment and we enjoyed it. The view was great from the balcony. The time we stayed there, it had sun in the morning and not in the evening. It was not a problem for us though. The service was very good and it was no problem contacting them.

The beds was ok. The only thing we thought of that was bad or less good was that the floors got really dirty. We didn't do anything particular which should have done the floors more dirty. I don't know if it's the type of the floors which is like that or if it was dirty when we first came there.

It had a bus stop really close by and also a mini market. The closest supermarket was at Melliha and with the bus, it only took maybe 10 minutes. That store was called Valyou and had everything. One minute from the apartment, there was a beautiful bathing area with cliffs.

They are offering a boat ride to Comino/Gozo for lower price if you book with them and I really recommend it! We got the tickets easy and everything went great.

Overall, we had a great stay at this apartment. It was over our expectations! We would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mimmi for your nice message and for your nice comments. We are glad that you had a great time in Malta and that the apartment was up to your expectations. It was a pleasure having you and your friends as our guests. Regarding the floor, Malta is very dry and dusty that why the floors get dirty quickly. We really hope to see you in the future and be our guests once again. Thanks Neville and Ruth.

Posizione comoda per raggiungere le spiagge dato che si ha la fermata del bus molto vicina, casa confortevole (con TV satellitare) con fantastico balcone sul mare e ideale per mangiare, unico appunto non comodissima per uscire la sera se non si ha la macchina dato che tutti i locali sono a San Julian e si è piuttosto lontani

Very sunny apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great, it had everything we needed. Ruth and Neville were quick to respond to any queries and helped us book a wonderful boat trip to comino and gozo! The apartment was quiet and overlooked the stunning views of St Pauls Bay. Not to mention we got the sun streaming in the apartment all day which was gorgeous! Never a dull day ;) clean, spacious, bright...just what we wanted to make our holiday what it was....wonderful!

A sweet relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the appartment for the second time. It has a convenient location (2 minutes from the "Xemxija" bus stop), marvellous sea view and all the things you need for a good rest and comfortable stay. We loved most sitting at the balcony anв observing the sea.

Loads of activities in the area, from watersports to countrywalks. Bus stops are close and all tourist attractions are just few minutes away.
