“Nice apartment ”
Reviewed August 20, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Good sized apartment with excellent view of the grand harbour.
Joseph very accommodating and greets you on arrival, he can also arrange for transport from and to the air port which I found very handy, especially if it's your first time there.
If your using a hire car there is plenty waterfront parking, but be sure to be back by 7pm due to the locals taking up the spaces heading to the restaurants further down.

“Excellent Location - wonderful view”
Reviewed June 28, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I must agree with the previous reviews. 4 of us stayed 13 nights in the apartment which has everything you might ever need, There are good restaurants in the area although the menus do not vary a lot from place to place unless you go to the water front restaurants in Valletta. You can take a water Taxi 2.5 Euros or Ferry across to Valletta. I would choose the Ferry as a return ticket is 5.80 Euros but this includes the lift up to the centre of Valletta which is 1 Euro on its own. It is a 15 minute walk to the Ferry past all the boats in the Harbour and over the bridge. Joseph arranged transport to and from the airport which was very useful. We were in apartment 1, there are 6 floors to the building and all Josephs family live in the others apart from 1 other apartment I think. Joseph was great and very helpful when needed. The apartment also has a lift to all floors which is apparently not the usual thing in these buildings.
I would highly recommend staying at the apartment.

“Wonderful holiday - perfect spot for relaxation”

I agree with the previous reviews - the view is priceless. We spent 6 nights in the apartment which has everything you might ever need, There are many good restaurants in the area or you can take a water taxi or ferry across to Valetta. The bus stop is just 5 minutes away from the entrance on the 5th floor and takes you to Valetta or to the beach at Marsaskala. The entrance on the ground floor takes you straight out the seafront. There is a small garden to the left of the apartment which can be reached by steps up - great views of Valetta from here.

I cannot recommend the aparmtent hghly enough - Joseph greets you on arrival when you arrive and shows you around, he lives in the apartment block so is there is you need him.
Now back to the view from the balcony, it has sun for a couple of hours in the morning and then is shaded the rest of the day so great for relaxing on. It is obvious that Joseph has put a lot of thought and work into making the apartment perfect - thank you.

“Best holiday ever”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

This place is amazing and a must if you are planning to stay in Malta. On the waters edge with a fantastic view. The apartment is spacious and well equipped with everything you could need for your stay. the pictures do not do it justice it is even better once you step through the door. Having a lift was an absolute bonus. There are 2 entrances one taking you down to the marina with local restaurants, street bars and the water taxi to Valetta. The other taking you up to a range of small shops 3 or 4 general stores a fruit and veg shop, butchers, chemist and even a hair dresser also the bus terminus where the bus leaves for Valetta every 20 mins. Although in a residential area you miss out on nothing except the street hawkers trying to sell you boat trips every 20 yards! The public transport is very good and runs frequently the links are great during the summer months the water taxi also runs until fairly late you are not isolated being in the south of the Island
Joe and his family are very friendly and are on hand if you need information or help but at the same time leave you to your own devices and are not in your face.
Would I recommend this apartment to a friend most definitely do I wish Joe continued success absolutely however if I recommend it too highly it might be already booked up when I want to book it again!
Thank you Joe we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed December 8, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The apartment was top for everything, location, wifi, Sat Television, lift, comfort and spectacular view. If you want to visit an historical part of Malta stay in Senglea. It is not a touristic area, local people live here and they are friendly, willing to chat and help you.
The food at the local restaurant is unexpensive and good. Local groceries everywhere in the Old town, in the central Victory Street. If you like to find a supermerket or larger shops, take the local bus n.1 for 1.50 euros from the old town to Paola, only 10 minutes away.
The owner Joe Duca is very helpful and will do anything to make your stay comfortable and unique; Prices are more reasonable in Senglea than Valletta for everything. Senglea is historical and the people are simply wonderful. If I come again in Malta I will stay here again. I can't recommend the apartment and the location highly enough!

“Simply Stunning... I was reluctant to leave that view !”
Reviewed October 30, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

From the start to the end I have nothing but good things to say about Joseph's apartment !
The location... A stones throw away from Valletta with a good selection of bars and restaurants within 15/20 mins walk, the ferry to valletta (10 € for a weeks ticket) 15/20 mins walk away), sea front location with what must be one of the best views ever... People watching... Boat watching heaven from the large balcony.

The apartment... Clean, spacious and comfortable.. Quirky as many Maltese properties can be with internal windows but so quiet at night.. Firm beds.. And again the view... Can't pass without again mentioning the view..

The service.. Joseph is an excellent host, prompt during the booking process arranging transfers etc and providing some basics in the fridge for arrival and solving any problems during the stay !

We stayed in this Fantastic Apartment overlooking the Grand Harbour our host was Joe Duca and we hired his Apartment through Owners Direct.
We arranged transportation to and from the Airport through Mr Duca and he was there to greet us on arrival.
The Apartment had everything you wanted and more, it was better than being in a hotel and had fantastic views overlooking the harbour we spent most nights sitting out on the balcony with a nice glass of wine.
Would love to come back especially to this apartment.
