“Perfect Location ”
Reviewed October 1, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed here for 1 week and although the decor is somewhat dated the apartment was spacious, clean and extremely well equipped. The view was absolutely magical overlooking the beautiful bay. The night view was even better!
We were met at the apartment by the very charming Felix who showed us around and gave us some great tips. We were pleasantly surprised to find the apartment was stocked with some useful and lovely supplies.
The location was excellent too with buses in both directions at our doorstep and shop and we were surrounded by so many great restaurants and shops.
Don't expect luxury but expect to really appreciate everything else it has to offer.

Thank you very much for your review. The main thing in the decor that could have been considered as dated had been the curtains. Nonetheless, as we've finally had 3 days of vacancy, they all have just been changed by brand new ones, along with some other new details. Too bad we've missed you. We really appreciate your review

“Would recommend this apartment”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

As a regular visitor to the island this was my first stay in this 'seafront pad' and it is now in my top three apartments to book in Sliema. The view from the balcony is outstanding and the location is central with easy access to the beach and restaurants. The apartment was easy to book had all the amenities I needed for my stay.

The apartment was lovely, a bit cold for the time of year we went but is probably perfect for the summer. There was a mini heater provided which helped in the evenings. Lovely jacuzzi bath and really nice lounge/dining area.

Excellent views from the apartment and a small roof ideal for sitting in the sun out of the wind! Unfortunately there is no beach opposite even though one of the pictures shows one. I'm not sure if that could be a seasonal thing but seems unlikely.

The best thing I found about the Island was all the British luxuries they have. You don't get treated like tourists as everyone speaks fluent English and many foreign people live there. The menus in restaurants tell you vegetarian, gluten free, nuts etc. They drive on the left. And perhaps most important, they use big mugs for tea!

“Great apartment in outstanding location”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

This spacious apartment surpassed all our expectations for comfort, cleanliness and convenience and offered great value for money.

From the friendly and helpful welcome by Felix, the caretaker, to the complimentary pack of groceries and bottle of wine,this flat had excellent facilities including a sofa and two armchairs, dining table and chairs, free wi-fi, cable TV with English language channels,DVD player, jaccuzzi bath and shower,fully fitted kitchen with 4 ring hob, oven and grill, microwave, toaster, electric kettle and every conceivable kitchen appliance. There's even a washing machine and rooftop drying area.

The bed and pillows were very comfortable and there was adequate wardrobe and drawer space for our clothes.Best of all there was constant hot water and uninterrupted electricity during our stay. Although on the 4th floor the apartment is easily accessed by a reliable lift and is very secure with key entry required at both ground and 4th floor levels.

The outstanding feature of the apartment though is its location with a small balcony offering terrific sea views over beautiful Baluta Bay.On street level are the bus stops for easy access to Sliema, Valletta and all points round the island.The weekly bus pass is wonderful value at only 6.50 Euros for unlimited travel around Malta.

There is a small mini-market just 50 yards from the flat entrance for your daily essentials with the bigger Park Towers supermarket just round the headland of the adjoining Spinola Bay.Although above the busy Tower Road, you're not aware of any street noise in the flat and we slept soundly every night.

Across the street on the promenade are first class restaurants, especially Peppe's, which offers outstanding food for all tastes at hard to beat prices.Meals and drinks are generally inexpensive on Malta and well below UK prices.Transfers by taxi from/to the airport were arranged by Felix and worked a treat.One final bonus, the flat is directly overhead the excellent Plough and Anchor pub which doesn't do food but does offer a warm welcome to its patrons. The landlord Georgio is a lovely fellow who really looks after his customers.

We were in Malta during some of the worst winter weather the island has experienced in the past 35 years but we felt warm,snug and safe in our apartment and still managed to get out and about. Malta is a beautiful island that's so rich in history and places of interest with the kindest and most generous people you could ever hope to meet.We had a superb holiday and can't wait to go back again.

“A perfect stay in a great apartment”
Reviewed December 5, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

After visiting Malta several times we decided to stay in an apartment on this trip. We made the perfect choice because Martin's (who is really good to deal with) apartment is in a great location, positioned between St. Julians and Sliema both being within walking distance. The apartment itself had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and had a wonderful view overlooking the bay. Felix was a great help both on arrival and departure. We would definitely stay there again when we return to Malta.

“Great Location”
Reviewed October 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Great location overlooking the bay. You can go across the road to the beach to swim and the Strand passes right in front of the apartment where you can walk for miles along the seafront. Perfect! Amazing views from the balcony. Close to restaurants, a mini supermarket and bus stop just outside the door across the road. The apartment is well equipped with all amenities and a welcome grocery package on our arrival was very much appreciated. A nice touch. A couple of changes can be made to the apartment to make it the best it can be. Changing the overhead light (in the bedroom) would be good because if you are tall your constantly banging into it. More closet space would be nice. We had good communications with Martin when setting up the booking and payment. Felix was very helpful whilst in Malta. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment and our two weeks in Malta. Amazing holiday. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to my family and friends. We are planning to visit again.

Just a quick note to say the unit was great. Your manager Felix, was very helpful too. The cleaning lady he has working there also did a wonderful job.

The unit is well placed in Sliema with everything you need right at your door.

Restaurants galore, bus just at the front door. Tourist help store just down the road a bit. That lady was great help - very busy family business.

The bed was pretty comfortable but could have better pillows. (I love nice pillows).

We were welcomed by Felix the manager and there was we were given a few necessities like hand soap, loo paper, tea, coffee, milk, sugar, bread, butter, eggs and wine. It was nice just not to have to find groceries on our arrival.

The jacuzzi worked well and was lovely and deep. There was plenty of linen and it was changed on cleaning day.

We didn't have to lift a finger really other than wash a few dishes or use paper plates or eat out which we did a lot of. There was a good little clothes washing machine too.

The unit has a lift that was great as my husband has a disability that won't allow him to stair climb!

There was parking just at the door which we managed to get without too many problems although it's not the units parking.

I would recommend this unit to anyone.

The breeze when window and door open in the dining lounge is amazing!! Again.

Thanks for everything. PS. THE VIEW IS TRUELY LOVELY!!
