We couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodation in Malta. The view from the balcony is truly spectacular, and with a lovely breeze makes it a perfect place to sit and relax with a glass of wine. There were fireworks in the distance nearly every evening, which were an added bonus.
Inside the flat the accommodation is comfortable, modern and cool. It is possible to open up the apartment by opening the large heavy wooden panels between the bedroom at the front and the living room. If you are a couple like us, with no need for the 2nd bedroom, this made the living area very spacious and light indeed (although the living area is still spacious without opening this up).
Only 5 - 10 minutes walk to the Sliema -Valletta ferry, which is very cheap, meant we crossed over to Valletta (which is wonderful) a number of times during our stay. The buses that stop along the waterfront can take you to any part of the island, making this a great location from which you can explore without the need for a car. This apartment is in the heart of Sliema, with restaurants, bars, shops etc all on the doorstep. 4 minutes walk away is the Point shopping centre, which has a very useful supermarket on the ground floor. Close enough to buy ice cream and walk back with it still frozen, to keep in the freezer in the apartment!!
The owner, Pam was very responsive to all emails, answering all very quickly, if we had any questions, and very polite and friendly. We also took advantage of the pick up service that Pam arranged with Dennis. It made arrival and departure stress free and comfortable.
Without doubt I would recommend this as a great place to base your holiday in Malta.
The location had not only a beautiful view but also was near restaurants and shopping. Easy walk to buses and ferries.
We questioned whether or not to do any review on our stay, not wishing to upset the owner or put people off staying because "the view from the apartment is fabulous" but personally our own standards of cleanliness are much higher than the professional cleaning we were charged for as part of the contracted price for the apartment, which we found to need quite a bit of tlc. The apartment is very large and airy and could have the wow factor, but all the nice furniture and fittings are so coveted by the owner that they are covered with towels and throws that make it look cheap. The owners manual relentlessly mentions how very expensive the fittings and services are which makes you feel like you dare not touch anything or even use the A/C, instead we were encouraged to leave windows open for the breeze and with it the subsequent dirt. Maybe our standards are higher than most, but having to wash greasy pots and pans before you use them is not our idea of a " professionally cleaned". In addition to the lack of cleanliness there was also no cleaning solutions or even kitchen roll left to clean whilst you were there, the fridge had debris and marked shelves from previous use and wardrobes and cupboards were strewn with the owners personal possessions, this all added to feeling like you were intruding on somebody's part time home. We have rented many properties both in the U.K. and abroad but found this one very lacking on the small inexpensive touches that should make it good, shame but true. All that said the location is central and great for sight seeing which we thoroughly enjoyed. We only decided to put this review in because we were chased several times to do so by Owners Direct, Home and Away and Tripadvisor, we're not looking for any recompense just submitting our true opinion as requested.
The view from the balcony is worth staying here alone. Stunning 180• panoramic. Lively little bars nearby - check out "The Brew" or "Ta Kris" - HUGE portions though! Pamela fantastic with her correspondence & flexibility. Cheers.”
The apartment is first class with amazing views of harbor. Furnishings are very modern. Pam is very nice and helpful. Great place for a family to stay in Malta.
I had a beautiful stay in Pam's apartment. Wonderfully clean and minimalist but with everything i needed to hand. So kind to make sure there was tea for me to make on arrival! Sliema is a very handy place to go to if visiting Malta. The ferry to Valetta is only a couple of minutes stroll down the road and all the boat tours are along the same stretch, even the Captain Morgan office is just downstairs so that you can book and arrange everything very easily. I caught a bus over to Golden Bay very easily from the stop down the road and had a lovely boat harbour trip. On previous visits I have been over to Gozo on the day cruise. The rocks Just across the road are a lovely place to sunbathe so all in all a great stay! I'll visit again!
I am a frequent visitor to Malta and having stayed in several different hotels/b&b/apartments over the past 12 years or so this is without any doubt the best I have ever stayed in. Firstly the apartment itself is stunning, wide spacious living area, kitchens and rooms with a breathtaking view. The organisation of our stay could not have been made any easier. The owners clearly care about their guests and for a few days this was and felt like our home. The location is excellent with Tigne Point shopping just a 2 minute stroll, including a supermarket. Bars and restaurants along Sliema front. Easy for Bus routes all around the island and the very short Ferry trip to Valletta, or numerous boat trips and tours around the islands, all within a minute or two stroll. It is the perfect place in the perfect location. All ready looking to come back again soon!
From the outset Pam made the whole process a friendly and informative experience.
Transfer to and from the airport was a breeze thanks to the very helpful Dennis, at a very reasonable cost.
The property is located in a prime position with 180 degree stunning views from the furnished balcony. It is also very convenient for shopping, bars and restaurants, the ferry to Valletta, bus and tourist boat services, all of which within a few minutes walk.
The apartment has been designed, furnished and equipped to a very high standard, we wanted for nothing.
Wifi was fast and free.
Overall we cannot recommend the apartment more highly, both in terms of value for money and the actual experience, it could not be bettered.
Thank you Pam
