Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in San Tumas - Mediterranean Court

Apartment in St Thomas Bay

2 bedroom apartment (sleeps 6) 500 metres from the beach in St Thomas Bay, Marsaskala, where you can enjoy walking along the promenade, visit heritage sites, swim or dine in open-air restaurants. Fifteen minutes away from the apartment, there is the bus terminus (village centre of Marsaskala). 3km away you can visit the Three Cities - three small citadel-cities in the port dating back to the 15th century full of old palazzi, museums & a romantic waterfront. Charming these citadels are old churches, castles, narrow streets, heritage museums, a casino, good restaurants & traditional wine bars. From Marsaskala buses go to Valletta where you can visit all its treasures such as St John's Cathedral, Upper Barrakka Gardens, Castille Place, Manoel Theatre, President's Palace, Republic Street, St James' Cavallier, St George Square, Hastings, Sacra Infermeria etc.

Since Marsaskala is a small seaside village there are many places you can swim. Besides beaches, in Malta you could visit megalithic temples, forts built by the Knights, Popeye village, the Blue lagoon, etc. Renting a car depends on your goals. Would you like to drive around and see more? Or would you prefer to take it easy, walk in the countryside, travel by bus and enjoy quality time?

Suggested excursions: (1) Scenic walk through the country side to Marsaxlokk fishing village on a Sunday morning (there is the market). It will take 1 hour (maps at the apartment)

(2) 15 minute bus ride to the Three Cities: heritage, museums, fortifications, everything dating back from the time of the Knights. You will find the bus timetable at the apartment).

(3) Valletta (capital city) built by the Knights. Bus leaves every 20 minutes.

(4) Bay discovering. From Marsaskala you can walk up to the southern tip of Malta and discover small inlets where you can also swim in these small rocky bays.

(5) Walk to St Thomas Castle and Torri Mamo. In summer you can also watch friendly waterpolo mathes at the Marsaskala Waterpolo club.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this apartment for a couple of days and we liked it. It was clean and comfortable. The wifi is fast, beds were comfortable and most of all the countryside, sea and Marsaskala city centre are very close. There is a small supermarket close by and the bus stop is also less then three minutes away.

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It is a cosy, spacious and clean place and has all amenities. The owner was very nice and we were provided with all we needed. The apartment is very close to the beach and we enjoyed going swimming everyday. Restaurants and bars are situated within walking distance. Everywhere is reachable with the bus. Very positive is the fact that we were picked up from the airport to the apartment and vice versa.

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband. The apartment had everything we needed. We had regular contact with the owner Stephen and he arranged for his lovely mother to pick us up and take us back to the airport at no additional charge. He even made contact with us even though he was in Luxembourg. The wifi was brilliant. The apartment itself was lovely, clean and spacious it was great having 2 double balcony doors in the living room. It has an ensuite shower and a separate bathroom with a shower. I also noticed it catered for small children. We could not fault it and would highly recommend it. The neighbours were very friendly offering advise on where to go. We have been to Marsacala before. We were a few minutes walk from the beach and enjoyed my husbands birthday at the local restaurant San Tomaso who kindly arranged for champagne and a cake without him knowing. We have friends who own the Mad Hatter Bar in Marsacala which is only 10 minutes walk with a variety of bars and restaurants in the area. We also had a few nights relaxing at the bars Shooters Bar and Cool Waters. Everyone was so friendly and you can get a variety of meals to suit everyone. In Marsacala itself, outside the bars opposite The Mad Hatter is a lovely play area for children.

One minutes walk from the apartment was a local supermarket which sold a variety of items and another one within 5 minutes walk. There are bars at the beach where you can just relax., go swimming, eat, or drink. We enjoyed the coast walk to Marsacala. There is a chemist about 8 minutes walk. The whole experience was fantastic. The weather was beautiful, we watched the police doing a musical parade up to the church one evening. I will defiantly be staying here again. Thank you to Stephen and his family for such an enjoyable stay. I would defiantly recommend this place

Great location for exploring the Island

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment. The most comfortable bed I've ever slept in on holiday! and 2 big sofas to lounge around in after a long day, out of the way in a residential part of town, but close enough to everything (shop on the door step, beach and restaurant on a couple of hundred yards away).

Ideally suited to explore the island, nothing is very far away and we ate both locally or in Marsaxlokk most evenings (try out the "Stuffed Olive" on the main parade in Masaskarla).

If you plan on hiring a car try Joe's garage in Masaskarla, very cheap, the car we had wasn't anything like new and had a few dents but this meant you fitted in with the locals and weren't constantly worried you were going to get damaged. parking is hit and miss but we never had to park more than 50 or 60 yards from the apartment.

Stephen and his mum were excellent and very helpful (I needed to hire a wheelchair as I'd had an accident and they took delivery before we arrived so it was there waiting for us) and the pick up and drop off at the airport just takes away the stress.

All in all a nice quite apartment that makes you feel part of the town rather than just another tourist.
