Guestbook comments from the owner

Just back from a magnificent week in Malta, the local people are so friendly and helpful, this apartment was ideal for the six adults that stayed, wonderful views, swimming in the sea directly below the balcony is a "must".

This apartment was exactly as described, very clean and spacious with all the mod cons that we could want.

With excellent restaurants along the Harbour front just 5 mins flat walk away. Vittoriosa is a beautiful location with easy access by bus, water taxi or ferry to the city of Valletta.

The airport pick up was arranged without a flaw, Claire (the agent) was very friendly, helpful and informative with local knowledge.

This was one of the best holidays ever, and we will be definitely be returning.

Luxury apartment with fantastic sea views

  • 5 of 5

It was nice returning to my home land after 20 years. We received a very warm welcome from our family at the airport. The instant we stepped into this apartment we felt at home. The view out from the balcony was picturesque. Cruise liners, yachts and tour boats pass by frequently. We enjoyed snapping pictures. Now when it comes to describing this apartment, I guess one can say its a plus to your holiday. All rooms are big and fully functional. Airconditioners in every room. We had heated towel rails as well in each bathroom. Towels and bedding are modern and of very good quality. Spotlessly clean floors and bathrooms.Good wifi and the fact that we could have our family reach us over the phone in this apartment was highly appreciated. The kitchen - modern, fully functional with dishwasher, microwave and tea and coffee making facilities. Then as soon as one steps out of this apartment you’re by the sea. I used to get up early and go for a nice walk but fresh bread from David Bakery in Kalkara and you could see other people walking by with a friendly attitude. Pure bliss! Wanted to say a huge thank you to Claire who came to our aide when we got locked outside. My husband forgot keys in the apartment one evening and she came with a smiling face to open for us. Keep up the good work.

Superb location

  • 5 of 5

Top quality apartment, well kitted out and in a brilliant position. The balcony looks out over the entrance to Grand Harbour and Valletta. We were lucky to be there for a firework display - amazing!

Quiet location - if you want to party go to Sliema. Walking distance to many restaurants and bars on the marina seafront.

Arriving by taxi? Drop off at the Yacht shop, the marina by the super yachts, walk clockwise past the shop to the other side of the peninsula to one the waterfront front door.

Return ferry to Valletta is 90 cents for over 60's. Ferry and bus are good ways of getting around.

Unique spot in the Mediterranean

  • 5 of 5

We have a fantastic experience in this property. We got a taxi to the apartment and were met by the agent. Showed around in a meticuoulsy kept place (by this I mean even glasses and tableware were positioned nicely in the cabinets) and even though I could read from past reviews that this property has been rented quite a long time, everything seemed brand new to me. Could not see any tear and wear. The view from the balcony was fantastic. On one of the days we had to stay inside cause it was very windy but we had a lovely view with the bad weather the sea changed and so did the view. Wanted to mention that the bedrooms are very big and spacious. There is also nice furniture and decor and the place was very clean. I stayed in other properties and you can see like for example cutlery sticky or pots and pans not clean at all. Here it is different. All nice and shiny. Thank you Irene for giving us the lovely tips around the island, we couldn't ask for more. I would recommend your property to everyone and if we get a chance we will visit once more this year. Lots of wishes from the Burns in UK.

Wonderful location. Needs attention to Be brought up to a higher standard

  • 3 of 5

The location is fantastic, view looking out in the harbour was wonderful also.

We had some concerns with our stay. The amenities listing needs to be updated. There was no iPod device, the comment from the lady who met us was it was old technology. Either update or don’t list it.

There was advertised “every 7 day maid service”, changing sheets towels etc. We were told upon arrival that someone would come half way through our 26 night stay to do the maid service. When I inquired about what was stated on the Home Away site regarding the maid service, it was addressed. I feel if I didn’t address this we would not have been given the service as promised on the site.

When we arrived there were 5 ceiling light bulbs that were burnt out. MAINTAINANCE. This was addressed.

Another concern was the drainage of the bathtub. When we inquired about this we were told the owner had been at the apartment before we arrived and everything was working 100%. If so then why weren’t the burned out light bulbs replaced. Going back to the bathtub we cleared a little hair but we had to take a tweezer to pull out old gross debris accumulated over a period of time and finally the tub emptied better. MAINTENANCE

We had an ongoing problem with mosquitoes. None in the main living room but in the bedrooms and bathrooms. One night we killed 13 mosquitoes in the bedroom. We kept the doors and windows closed but the mosquitoes still came. We believe the mosquitoes came through vents, air conditioner or plumbing. MAINTENANCE

Another concern was cleaning. There were clumps of dust on corners of walls. I would call them dust bunnies. I could write my name in the dust on top of light switches. These would have accumulated over a period of time.

There were other areas of cleaning concerns. MAINTENANCE

Water stains on walls and blinds in master bedroom. Shower tiles need Attention as the grout around shower stall are stained from mould.

MAINTENANCE

I could keep listing other MAINTENANCE concerns.

We feel that for what we we paid this apartment rentals needs MAINTENANCE and updating.

Owner's Response: Your review was very surprising as we are constantly updating and improving our facilities, providing a service second to none as confirmed by so many happy guests which return every year. We also know that our apartment is excellent value for money, very spacious, very clean and with up to date maintenance, right on the waterfront and accommodating 6 people. In regards to your comments, we have always provided a free of charge made service and change of sheets and towels if your stay is more that 7 nights. All the lights were working on your arrival, the apartment is thoroughly checked before a guest arrives. The comment about the bathtub water flow, I guess everybody may have a different perception of how fast water may drain. All the windows and doors have mosquito screens, so unless you open the mosquito screens I don't understand how they could be mosquitos in the room, no guest has ever reported a problem before. We pride ourselves in providing an excellent well equiped and well maintained apartment as shown by all our positive reviews.
