“What a gem”
Reviewed April 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

After spending a week at Agatina’s, my husband and I decided to enjoy a few days in this other property owned by the Debono Family. We only spent 4 days here but I believe it is sufficient to leave a glowing review.

The location of this property is genuinely unrivalled as it enjoys unobstructed views of the Cathedral of Malta. It was a delight to wake up and view this magnificent piece of architecture. The owners have also provided a table on the balcony which we used to use to enjoy our breakfast on.

The rest of the apartment is also delightfully furnished and we particularly enjoyed the lounge/living room area on the 1st floor. This room also enjoys magnificent views of St. Paul’s Square. The presence of a washing machine in the kitchen was also very convenient and it enabled us to catch up on some much needed laundry.

The owners - the Debono family - live next door to the property and their proximity is extremely useful. As always, they were ready to help whenever we needed anything. A temporary issue with the internet was immediately resolved once we brought it to the hosts’ attention. We also particularly appreciated the food and drinks they had prepared for us upon our check-in.

To anyone considering renting this property, I wouldn’t hesitate. We loved our time here and hope to return in the near future.

“Fabulous find!”
Reviewed April 13, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

What gracious hosts we had in Andrea and Joanna and what a fabulous location, windows onto St. Paul’s Cathedral in the heart of Mdina. While a bit cool, January after all, the accommodations – sitting area, kitchen, bath and toilet on first floor and living room and bedroom on second were spacious and nicely furnished. I might mention the floors are connected by a tight circular [spiral] stairs and might be of concern for those of limited mobility. I am an active 76 years old and fully enjoyed the facility and location. It was nice to have the owner just a door away when questions of where to eat or shop came up. We both would highly recommend this accommodation.

“Mdina”
Reviewed March 22, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A perfect central location for travellers with transport. Owner very cheerful and helpful. Apartment faces onto the main square and the balcony provides a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. There are plenty of good restaurants to choose from. Easy access to all main routes to explore Malta by car. Nice temperatures during the day, warm clothing required at night at this time of year.

“Stately and Cosy.”
Reviewed November 30, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Returned to Mdina and I HAD to stay with the DSCs again... although the other property I stayed in before was unavailable and this wonderful residence was recommended to me by Andrea. His mother displayed exemplary hospitality during my brief but lovely stay. The location of the house was right smack in the heart of Mdina with an amazing view of the Cathedral and though there were tourists around the area, it was never an issue. You have all the amenities you could want in the house and the BEST pastizzi in Malta right outside the beautiful walled city. I would recommend this residence to anyone looking for peace and quiet, anyone seeking refuge from the hustle and bustle of life or if you want to experience the amazing hospitality from the DSCs (:

“Beautiful house in a magical location”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was our first time visiting Malta and after this experience I must say that Andrea and his lovely family have set the bar incredibly high. We did not meet Andrea, though he was extremely helpful and responsive in the leadup to our stay. During our six-day visit we were taken care of by Andrea's mother, who could not have been more welcoming or delightful. The house itself is beautiful, honestly one of the nicest we saw in all our time in Malta, and the location is stunning, with a perfect view of St. Paul's Square and cathedral. Wine on the balcony overlooking the square was the perfect way to cap each day in this beautiful country.

We used this location as a base for a series of day trips to the rest of Malta. We used the public buses for this purpose, which was made very convenient by the proximity of the Rabat bus interchange which is steps away from the Mdina gate, a walk of only a few minutes. Additionally, the house is only a few steps from some excellent restaurants and spectacular views of Mosta and the surrounding countryside.

The bottom line is that we could not possibly have had a more enjoyable experience staying with Andrea and his family. It was truly unique and magical, and we are so grateful to have been able to do it. If you are planning to stay in the Mdina/Rabat area, you would be a fool to stay anywhere else.

“A Highlight of Our Holiday”
Reviewed September 27, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This time last Summer, my family and I spent a very pleasant week on holiday in Mdina. In fact, we enjoyed our experience so much that we decided it would be well worth repeating last year's holiday. As we were travelling without our children, my wife suggested that we look into renting a smaller property rather than using the same one of last year.

For that, we consider ourselves very fortunate to have been put in contact with Andrea, who arranged our stay at this house of character. My initial impression was that the property was both beautiful and well-kept, an opinion also shared by my wife. I was also struck by the vista that the house enjoys over the Mdina square, which from my personal experience is simply unrivaled.

The owners, who met us at the entrance to the property, were both helpful and very forthcoming with advice. We were extremely appreciative of the time and effort they took to make sure that our stay in Mdina (and holiday in Malta) was as enjoyable as possible. In truth, they were more than eager to help whenever we came across any problems/issues.

My wife and I have no regrets about repeating our holiday to Malta, with our stay in Mdina being a particular highlight of this trip. Mdina offers a wonderful variety of restaurants (including those which specialise in traditional cuisine), as well as numerous architectural sights (a prime example being the cathedral - which the property actually overlooks). The streets are also quite unique, and even echo to the sound of horses giving carriage rides.

The property provides a clean, romantic setting with super helpful hosts. Many thanks!
