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 full time 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

The most wonderful place and appartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 7 persons in this appartment just by Saint Paul's Bay.

The appartment was clean, had everything we needed for staying .

Good kitchen and 3 betrooms with very good beds .

Everything worked , like aircondition, hot water ( 2 bathrooms) , internet and lots of TV canals ( even danish !! )

Last but not least a terrace with the most fantastic view , just like the fotos. Imagine wake up in the morning and sitting with your coffee looking out . That's holiday !!!

The appartment is located outside of the tourist area, which we liked a lot .

5 minutes walk from there, we could swim with the lokal .

The sand beaches and attractions on Malta and Gozo could easily be reached by buses, who droved just outside the door.

You have supermarked, bars and restaurants in walking distance. (Try the restaurant Pepe Nero , which is on the way to the swimm area. Lovely food and really good service !! )

The owner took good care of us . Arranged airport transport , which was cheap and easy. They met us at the appartment , when we came, were very helpfull . We had their phonenumber and could call anytime. Really good customer service.

I absolute recommend this appartment to everyone. It's the most wonderfull place

Great views!

  • 4 of 5

Communication with the owners was excellent before our visit, albeit we never actually got to meet them. Their rep put on a very brave face when we arrived – at least 2 hours later than planned ! (Our satnav didn’t work with the English names, so if you want to go to St Paul’s Bay, spell it Pawl !). She was very nice given that we arrived @ 0200 hrs, and the fact that she had bought us some basic foodstuffs was greatly appreciated.

The flat itself was very clean but a little on the basic side. The 3 bedrooms were spacious and well appointed. On the other hand, we did find the lounge a bit cramped, indeed on arrival we thought this was the owner’s office ! That said, the flat had a very nice balcony overlooking the bay so no complaints there. The lounge was equipped with a 3 man sofa, table and chairs and a flat screen TV. It also had 2 butane gas heaters, which were a godsend as the March weather had taken a turn for the worse. The kitchen area was clean and tidy and well equipped with the usual appliances.

I think we were a little unfortunate in our timing as one of the adjacent flats was being renovated, so lots of early morning hammering and dust during the day. Future visitors won’t have to put up with that, but don’t expect a Sunday lie-in as the dual carriageway to the rear of the bedrooms becomes a motor cycle race track during weekends as this road is the route to the Gozo ferry and is heavily utilized from early morning and evening at weekends.

Parking one’s car outside the flat is very easy and we never struggled to find a slot – unlike the rest of the island which is awash with cars and impatient drivers. There is a small lift to all flats so access to and from was very easy and friendly to those with minor disabilities. I would think a wheelchair would fit in the lift, but you should check with the owners on this one !

Overall, would I stay there again? Most certainly. I think to sum up I would say that it was a basic holiday flat but with a lot going for it. The owners are good communicators, it has everything you need, it’s easy to access and has great views of St Paul’s bay. Definitely recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for finding time for to review our property and a big thank you for being our guests! We are not a private individual that rents his extra home. We are in the holiday apartment business since 1981 and trade under the name of GetawaysMalta and have many properties. We do our best to ensure the best level of service by being available 24 hrs on phone and during all day by Whats App, Facebook messenger,Email and Skype. We not only reply to emergency situations but you will always find us there for tips on where to go nd what to do in Malta. We offer to supply you with tickets for day cruises (with free transfers), Hop on Hop off bus tickets, car hire, bike hire etc, at no extra costs. As it is impossible to meet all guests personally we have dedicated representatives that meet guests any time they may arrive (although we insist you give us the flight details of your arrival as early as possible so we can ensure we dedicate you all the necessary time on your arrival). We have our own maintenance staff, stores full of spares, and our own cleaning staff to ensure the highest services levels. We keep the apartments basic but well equipped. This makes it easy to keep super clean and suitable for all kinds of guests. Blue Harbour was a 1920`s summer residence . Now we converted it into holiday apartments while keeping the original Art Nuveau facade. Being a holiday apartment on St Paul`s Bay seafront we felt it is more important to have a big seafront terrace than a big internal lounge area. The lounge area still measure 5.5m (17ft) x 2.4m (8ft) with a big bay window leading to the seafront terrace and enjoying the bay views. Unfortunately had to do some maintenance before the arrival of new guests in the apartment above yours during your stay. We did our best not to make noise and cleaned every day our dusty footsteps to reduce the inconvenience as much as possible. As you noted the lift and structure is not wheelchair friendly, but suitable for the ealderly or with minor mobility impairments. Parking is easy in winter and cooperatively easy in Summer. The apartment has all modern day facilities like air-conditioning in the bedrooms, 32 inch IPTV (internet tv with hundreds of channels in many languages), WiFi in all the apartment, fans, gas heaters (cheap to run), washing machine, clothes drying area, Gas BBQ in seafront terrace etc. We hope to have you our guests again soon!

Efficient Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, located across street from harbor. Bus stops nearby with very short walk. Neville and Ruth went out of their way to complete any need we had. We would stay there again and recommend it.

Perfect place for a group of people

  • 4 of 5

We rented the apartment for one week when we were in Malta to work.

It was clean and nice and view from the balcony was perfect with the Mediterranean just below us. A perfect place to have breakfast, lunch and even sit and work at. We had good service and everything was working perfect. There were a couple of nice restaurants just 5 minutes from the apartment and only 20 minutes to walk or 5-10 minutes by bus to the center of Bugibba. The traffic could be a little load in daytime but it was very quite at nighttime. It was priceworthy and I would recommend it to any of my friends.

Great location, great appartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, comfortable, with a nice terrace and a great view on St Paul' Bay. It is only few minutes drive to good restaurants, nice beaches and departure to Gozo Island. We had a nice stay in Malta.

Mr Galea, the owner, is professional, reactive, friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely wonderful apartment ! Before our arrival in Malta, the owners were very helpful and ready to respond to our countless questions.. and their hospitality did not cease to amaze us during our stay there. The rep which welcomed us at the apartment was very nice, eventhough we arrived late at night. The apartment is fully equipped, in a great location close to all amneties, and very clean! Accessibility is not a problem as the apartment has a lift. The wonderful seaviews that can be seen from the apartment are breathtaking..Will definitely be back !
