About Angela Busuttil

Hi my name is Angie, I am Maltese and currently live in Hampton in Middlesex, London. My fondest memories are my wonderful holidays by the sea in Marsescala. I go back at least once a year to visit my lovely family there. As we now have a family of our own we wanted a place that we could use for our holidays. I had no trouble deciding where to buy and as soon as I saw this apartment my heart just flew as it had everything I ever dreamed of. A glorious sea view, a large relaxing and cool terrace to sit and drink a cool glass of wine in the evenings, lots of open space, clean and light with a contemporary feel. So we tried it out this summer and I have to say its super! The terrace is wonderful, everything is very close by and best of all its quiet and peaceful without being remote.

Angela Busuttil purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Angela Busuttil chose Marsaskala

I have been coming to Marsascala since I was a little girl and have always loved the feel of the place and of course the beautiful beaches. Its so unspoilt and untouristy. A lot of Maltese come here for their holidays so you will always find the locals nearby. Sliema, Buggiba and St Julian's are so built up and busy now, I wanted a place that people could feel the real Malta yet feel at home. Its quiet, peaceful and safe here. I would happily walk alone at night (something I would never do in England).

We are blessed with many lovely restaurants and bars and bustling nightlife is only 10 minutes away in Marsascala town.

What makes this apartment unique

This new build apartment has literally only just been finished. It has been furnished and decorated to a high standard. Everything in it is clean safe and ready for you to relax and chill.

There are very few penthouse apartments in Malta offering the standard, quality and comfort that we want to offer our guests.

Its very important to us that you feel as comfortable and welcome as possible - so we look forward to welcoming you to Malta to this wonderful original little fishing village of Marsascala.

Kind regards

Angie Busuttil

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Angie, Just wanted to let you know we had a fabulous holiday in Malta and really loved your flat. The weather was glorious, very hot and sunny and we spent many hours sunbathing on the balcony, with the respite of the air conditioning in the flat when the heat got too much. The flat is well equipped and beautifully decorated and in a great location. Rose was waiting for us on arrival and was extremely helpful.We hope to come back soon and will certainly recommend the flat to friends and family.


Dear Angela we have been home now for just over the week and would like say what an excellent time we had in Malta, it was hot reaching 40 degrees on occasion but we planned our days accordingly, relaxing, sightseeing and waterpark.The flat was lovely and very well contained. We even viewed fireworks on the balcony! Rosa was there on our arrival and so very helpful with everything. Many thanks for a very enjoyable and comfortable stay

The only criticism of our holiday was our experience of Manchester Airport - Definitely avoid it if at all possible and fly in and out of somewhere else!

From our arrival in Malta and organising a taxi to our departure from the island the whole experience was fabulous. The property was beautifully prepared for our arrival and was exactly as described.

With a choice of beaches within a few minutes walk and a selection of restaurants and cafe bars only a little further away we had a thoroughly relaxing week with the teenagers scoring the experience eight out of ten and nine out of ten: perhaps the wifi helped a little - as did the pelucid waters of St Thomas Bay and all the colourful fish we could watch while snorkelling. The corner shop (about 200m from the property) met all of our needs and the fruit we bought from the market stall in Marsaskala was 'to die for'. With a bus stop just down the road we were able to get around conveniently without hiring a car - so even I could relax :)

Highly commendable and we hope to be back

Our return to Malta

  • 4 of 5

We lived in Malta 1972-74,my how it has changed.The apartment in Masaskala is ideally situated to explore the Island.From day one we were briefed and made very comfortable by Rose who is the fountain of all knowledge.Everything you need is in the apartment including sunshine from the balcony to air conditioning.Malta is very much a tourist treat now but there are many areas inland that have retained the old traditions.Masakala was

are evening treat most nights ,it is all there within walking distance .Thankyou Angela we will return

Really nice and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here, it's a roomy apartment, really well equipped, quality furnishings, good aircon (a must) and a decent sized patio that gets the sun.

Good access to beach, rocks to swim off and the harbour, nothing more than a 10 minute walk away. Supermarket down the end of the road. Bakery on way into town worth finding. Turn left and keep walking for some nice rocks to swim off. Best places to eat were Ximo and Tal Familja.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Its so important for other travellers to see what you thought was good. Thank you for the restaurant tips that is really useful - I shall try Ximo! Another great restaurant is called Zonquor situated round the corner to the right of the town centre - its a long walk (about 45 mins max) / short drive from the flat. The food is excellent with large portions and although not cheep its very reasonable compared to UK prices - you are looking at about £50-70 for a meal for two with a bottle of wine. Once agin thanks for your review we enjoyed having you stay in our home. Kind regards Angie

Car: not necessary


The gorgeous shallow sandy beach is only a 2 mins away. Its small but safe and very clean and you will find that mostly the locals swim there. There are plenty of places to sunbathe on the smooth flat rocks, and to swim in the deeper areas with clear fresh water. There is a great bar/restaurant on the beach offering very reasonable priced food. Discover the amazing walks to the Munxar Peninsular along the white cliffs that overlook the fish farming fens.


Luqa Malta's only airport is 20mins away. There is a very reliable taxi service directly at the airport that will charge you around €20 each way to the flat. They have someone there day and night. You will be met at the apartment by the lovely 'Rose' who will show you around and answer any questions you may have. You can hire a car very reasonably from the airport (about 20-25 Euros per day inclusive of fully comprehensive insurance).


Malta is only 17 by 9 miles. Because its so tiny everything is very very close. you can get from the furthest distance point to point in about 45 mins. A car is really helpful and great fun. You can hire a small air conditioned car for about 25 Euros a day including all insurance. But the buses are also excellent, they are air-conditioned and take you everywhere. We have made a book up of all the places to see and visit, the trips available, bus timetables, restaurants we recommend and so on.

Further Details:

Its daunting when you arrive at a new place, not knowing where everything is. So hopefully we have made it easy for you by making up a welcome pack showing you were to go what to do and what to see etc. In the apartment you will find we have collated leaflets of trips, bus timetables, as well as books on Malta that you can read up on its glorious history. A '91 Arriva' bus can be caught at the bottom of the road which takes you to straight to Valetta the capital of the island. There are plenty of transport options and tours available and we shall be happy to recommend trusted taxis and car hire companies should you need them. There is a small shop round the corner called D&F Things Stationary, which we lovingly call 'the shop that never moves' due to its spelling of 'Stationary' with an 'a' rather than an 'e'. This family run shop owned by the lovely Dino and Francesca, is like a tardis and sells everything you could possibly need - including; wine, beer, freshly baked Maltese bread (amazing), incredibly farm fresh vegetables and fruit at supermarket prices. If you don't fancy cooking, you can grab some really cheep delicious food from the Pastizzeria down the road from 'Norbert' - try a ‘Pastizzi’ (small savory pasty made out of ricotta or peas), or try ‘Hobz biz-Zejt’ (the Maltese tuna roll) great for on the way to the beach, or a slice of pizza or timpana (baked macaroni) all delicious and very reasonable. Save some bread to throw in the sea and watch the thousand of fishes come to hungrily eat it up! and you will get a free fish pedicure! - forget those fancy spas! - just dangle your feet and let them nibble! There are dozens of excellent restaurants. We would recommend 'Tal Familia' a lovely place specializing in traditional Maltese food using fresh fish caught nearby. The quaint fishing village of Marsaxlokk is only a ten minute drive and has many lovely restaurants and cafes to sit and while away the time.
