We have stayed in one of Paul's apartments previously, so when returning to Malta we knew who to ask!
Paul suggested this apartment of his as it was close to where we wanted to stay.
Well we we're overwhelmed when we arrived. The apartment was so spacious and well equipped with more than enough room for the 4 of us.
The apartment is situated right in the heart of the 'party capital' Paceville but despite this we did not hear a sound at night (we have 2 small children so weren't there for the party atmosphere).
The rear patio area is a real suntrap and great for sunbathing and quietly reading a book.
The apartment looks out over the bay, but there was building work going on when we stayed so this may have changed.
There is a hot tub available but we found it took a very long time to warm up and therefore used a lot of electric.
The apartment is in walking distance of the main bus route which enables you to explore the entire island on the public transport.
We would return to Malta and stay in one of Paul's apartments again.
Stayed last week with 4 of my girlfriends. We all were very impressed with the apartment. It is in a great location for nightlife and restaurants - although we used the kitchen a lot as there are a few grocery stores a couple minute walk away. Also we had a car rented and found it a quick drive to Gozo ferry and Valletta from this location. Paul was a great host and available to answer any queries. If using the jacuzzi I recommend turning it on and heating upon your arrival, as we left it until too late and were not able to use. We had an excellent time in Malta and looked forward to returning to the apartment to relax after out exploring for the day!
This was our first visit to Malta and had no idea where to stay so we trolled through the many sites till we came across Home -Away .we narrowed our choice down to a few apartments that would suite us .We contacted Paul about 804890 but was informed it was booked ,he did suggest another apartment in Spinola Bay that may suite our needs better as we are both seniors and did not want to end up in a rowdy area he sent us details of a Luxury 2 bed called Silver in a modern complex on the 5th floor overlooking the bay and was assured it would fit our needs .We had a bad experience last year on a holiday booking and where very cautious in making sure it was right for us ,all through the process Paul kept in touch assuring us of his credentials and sent us many photos of the place offered .In the end we sent off our deposit and during this time we received reassuring emails .We where met at the airport by Paul's driver and taken the 30 min drive to the apartment as we approached the place it was close to midnight our apprehension grew as it was not what we though it would be like old buildings surrounding us but our fears where soon unfounded when we where meet by Paul's son outside and showed us into this modern marble clad block up to the 5th floor we entered this fabulous apartment with all mod cons and a spectacular view from the balcony looking into the bay .We where given a tour of the place and shown where everything was and when we where completely satisfied we where given a welcome pack of provisions and nice touch was a bottle of bubbly .All the contact details where left in case we needed any help during our stay thankfully we didn't need them .The location was very good 5 minutes from the local bus stop with buses going to all parts of the island on our door stop and all for 6.50Euro for a weekly ticket including the return to the airport excellent value .The place was 2 minutes from the luxury Portomaso complex and the Hilton Hotel .Take a trip up the tower to the 22 floor for a spectacular view of the island .
On the check out day Paul came around at a agreed time and inspected the place and handed us back our security deposit with no fuss .He was a real gentleman to deal with and would use his services if and when we return to Malta .Book with confidence with this company Brian &Elsie
I am writing this review to say that the owner of this property, Paul, is an excellent host. You should rent from him whenever possible. He picked me up at the airport and left me with fresh water, milk, and some snacks. He was always available via email for my (many) questions and concerns. Paul was always polite and did everything he could to make my stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you Paul!
Me and five friends of mine stayed for about a week in october there. We arrived at the airport and the host was late but he immediately called and informed us about it so we hadn't got to worry. The ride to our apartment was a bit too fast but we arrived there safe and sound. As we entered it we couldn't believe our eyes; a big living room with lots of sofas and a large TV, two bathrooms, a big perch outside with a jacuzzi and a nice halfopen kitchen in the middle of the appartment. There are more than enough furniture and it's all very modern. The hosts thought of all the details, like adapters and so on. By the way the hosts are very friendly and if you have a problem with something there or a question, they'll always help you. We had some little peoblems with insects but we managed to fight them and I think in every southern country you'll have such problems. They always get the way into your apartment if they want to...The location of the apartment was perfect. You reach the beach, the supermarket and all the good party clubs in just three to five minutes footwalk. Also the busstop isn't far away. We were the first visitors who could try the jacuzzi with the heater. It wasn't working very well but I think they will quickly solve the problem for the next guests.
I absolutely recommend this apartment especially for young people: it's a real fair price, perfect location, party next door, beach five minutes away, nice view and you have always help if you need some :)! In addition there weren't any problems with the neighbours.
Myself and my boyfriend stayed in the Sands for a week. Neither of us had been to Malta and so we were looking to stay somewhere central to the beach and night life and restaurants. We picked the perfect place. The apartment is modern and spacious and it was lovely to have our own space to relax. We were in walking distance of the bay so we had a wide choice of restaurants to chose from (our favourites were Barracuda, Padre Piccolo, 1927 and Meet.) The bars and night clubs of Paceville were just behind the complex. Although this is a lively and trendy spot you could not hear any noise from the apartment as it was nestled in off the road way.
Josanna could not have been nicer. On arrival her driver picked us up at the airport and we met her at the apartment. She gave us all the information of the apartment and the area and left us to it. We didnt have to contact her for our stay as we found our way around fine. On the day of departure she allowed us the use of a room in her villa to rest and change before our flight. Her driver then dropped us straight to the airport.
Overall it was the best holiday I have had. Malta is such a lovely island with so much to see and do and the weather was just perfect in October. The Sands apartment definitely enhanced our stay and I have no doubt we will be back in the future.
St. George's Bay lies between St. Julians Bay and Malta's nightlife capital Paceville, within walking distance to either of them, but in a quieter niche with extended sea and bay views of this most popular place. Picturesque St. Julians, still used by fishermen, is lined with bougainvillea-clad cafes and restaurants; Paceville offers a vibrant nightlife to suite all tastes from nightclubs to quieter piano bars, together with some great bars and even greater eating places. A mix between a cosmopolitan town and a fishing village, St. Georges is an ideal place for fun and relaxation, and at the same time, a centre-point for easy commuting and touring of the island. A 16-cinema complex is only metres up the road, as is the tenpin bowling centre, together with shopping and leisure centres that are unique to this island. St. Georges offers all kinds of watersports and scuba-diving. A culmination of dazzling lights and dimly-lit streets in a safe environment for families and friends alike.
