“Beautiful and well situated but cold and damp house”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed in this house during the first week of February, which turned out to be a chilly and rainy week. The house was beautiful, with a cosy patio and roof terrace with a magnificent view. We were very well received by the friendly owner.
Unfortunately, because of the cold weather and the lack of a central heating system and isolation in the house, it was very chilly and damp inside. Clothes wouldn't dry even three days after washing them. Even the small electrical heaters that were provided for the living room and bedrooms couldn't really solve this problem. Also, the house was not very clean, especially the floors and the sofa. The bathrooms on the other hand were quite clean.
Another disadvantage of the house were the very poor mattresses. You could feel the springs sticking in your back.
Despite these problems, we think this house would be a very agreeable place to stay during warmer months.

Hi Jolien,

Thanks for your feedback and your positive comments. Unfortunately high humidity is very common in Malta and this contributes to having cold houses. As you said we provided you with heaters which normally solve the problem but your week was really a very cold week even more cold than usual. I have taken note of the cleanliness issue and will inspect the house myself with next guests to make sure that out standards are maintained. Re mattress, I have located the mattresses you indicated and these have been changed. Regards. Reno

“Great house very close to Mdina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

A lovely house near Rabat parish church and very close to Mdina. We only stayed for a few days over Christmas and had a lovely time. The house has pretty much all you need for a stay with a family. Reno was great with organisation.

“The perfect house on the perfect street in the perfect place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed here for 3 weeks in May 2012. We are a family of four, with two young children. The house is on a very quiet pedestrian-only street. It is within walking distance to Mdina and many historic sights. I would not necessarily call it "luxury" (by North American standards) but it is a perfect house in a perfect spot.

The owners were fantastic to deal with and helped us out with car rental and babysitting.

The house could benefit from having wireless internet as the internet stick we rented didn't have great reception, although the town square nearby (30 seconds from the house) has free wireless, as do many other places in Malta.

Once we figured out the driving/parking situation in Malta, we were able to check out most of the island. After seeing many wonderful sights and places, it simply reinforced that this is a great home base if you are looking for an interesting, safe, low-key, family-friendly trip.

“Lovely house, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

person found this review helpful

Very pleasant restored house in a really handy location. Owner was great to deal with. Mattresses quite firm but not uncomfortable and some occasional noise from church bells - but not enough to keep you awake. Otherwise totally quiet and hard to fault. We would definitely return and recommend to others.
