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 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

Melanie, Graham and Family

Fantastic Appartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to Marsaskala and by far the best apartment we have stayed in.

Everything we needed was on hand, plenty of space both inside and on the 2 balcony's and no problems parking in the streets nearby.

The temperature was up in the 30s but the air con and fans more than compensated keeping the flat nice and cool.

All in all a great place to stay in a wonderful town, I totally recommend it. you won't be disappointed.

A great place

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely with a great balcony for sitting out on. The bed in the double room is low so a bit of a challenge to get down to but very comfortable once you're there! A wee bit of attention to detail would be good. There was no bedside light in the twin room , the dishwasher wasn't working and the sofa sat at a precarious angle. None of this spoilt our holiday just really for Angie 's attention.

Rose is a wonderful woman! She was there to meet us at 9 30 at night and really helped us when the taxi drove off still with our bags in the back! She took us back to the airport and gave the folk 'what for' for being so remise!

It's in a fairly non tourist area which we liked. The town centre is busy with locals at various cafes and restaurants in the evening which was great to be amongst. The bus to Valletta is great and we enjoyed travelling back and forward.

All in all a lovely break

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer Thank you so much for your review and coments - they are extreemly helpful to us to ensure our guests have the best time possible. There are also a new set of table and chairs on the terrace as well as a few other items such as an ironing board etc. that needed replacing, plus we have replaced the headboard and other items that needed some attention. All the best to you and thank you for choosing to stay with us. Kind regards Angie

A great apartment within easy reach of the beach and shops.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is large and well laid out, and generally has plenty of crockery and glasses,although some of the glasses need replenishing. It was clean throughout, thanks to the lovely Rose. The air conditioning and extra fans worked well, and we're most welcome! The only downside was the table and chairs on the balcony; it's crying out for a larger table and more chairs. We were continually dragging dining room chairs in and out to enjoy breakfast or supper on this great facility. It's disappointing to note that this was first mentioned 3 years ago. Having said that, would I recommend this apartment? Absolutely. I would have given 5 stars if the balcony issue had been addressed.

Pleasant comfortable apartment

  • 3 of 5

Not the easiest place to find if you are driving, but then it is tricky finding anywhere in Malta without a sat nav!! Spacious apartment with lovely large South facing balcony, the air conditioning was very welcome as the weather was extremely hot when we were there. When we arrived we were surprised to learn that we had to be out of the apartment by 9am on our last day, we felt that this was unreasonably early and this had not be explained to us when we booked, it may have changed our view.

The apartment would benefit from a bit of upgrading. We were disappointed to learn that the dishwasher was broken, it was only when we tried to use it we realised this and I am aware it has been broken for some time if it is not to be replaced then it needs to be removed from the description. The terrace furniture could be better; two plastic and rather old looking loungers a very small plastic table and one plastic chair and one wooden chair, an umbrella would also have been welcome. Whilst talking about the terrace watch the terrace door if it shuts behind you you are trapped on the terrace!!! The bed head in the main bedroom was peeling and bits were dropping onto the pillow, the ensuite bathroom would benefit from a fixed shower and shower curtain rather than a shower coming off the bath taps.

Finally the description of perfect privacy is no longer valid as there is building work going on both sides of the apartment and therefore curtains and blinds had to remain closed as the builders could see directly into the apartment this made the place rather dark. Obviously not the fault of the owner building work is going on everywhere in Malta but it does change the outlook and view,

Having said all this it was a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Elaine Thank you so much for your review. It’s so helpful to us to know what we need to address so we really appreciate the time you took in submitting it. We always try to accommodate our guests should they need to leave later than the usual departure time, however if we have other guests arriving that day we need to clean, launder the sheets and towels and prepare the flat before 3pm on the same day. So our apologies that you felt rushed out, we should have been more mindful of your needs, we shall ensure we address this with future guests. We have replaced the headboard and it is all lovely again! There are also a new set of table and chairs on the terrace as well as a few other items such as an ironing board etc. that needed replacing. When we bought the dishwasher it was brand new and yet due to the salty water in Malta it only lasted 2 years. I am very mindful of the safety of our guests and am very worried that the dishwasher could have contained rust etc. Therefore I have taken it off our inventory listing on the web site as not to misconstrue anyone. I shall take on board your comments of an umbrella and look into this. Once again I thank you for all your extremely helpful comments. Kind regards Angie

St Thomas Bay
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.
