Communication with the owners was excellent before and after our visit. Their rep put on a very brave face when we arrived – at least 2 hours later than planned ! (Our satnav didn’t work with the English names, so if you want to go to St Paul’s Bay, spell it Pawl !). She was very nice given that we arrived @ 0200 hrs, and the fact that she had bought us some basic foodstuffs was greatly appreciated.
The flat itself was very clean but a little on the basic side. The 3 bedrooms were spacious and well appointed. On the other hand, we did find the lounge a bit cramped, indeed on arrival we thought this was the owner’s office ! That said, the flat had a very nice balcony overlooking the bay so no complaints there. The lounge was equipped with a 3 man sofa, table and chairs and a flat screen TV. It also had 2 butane gas heaters, which were a godsend as the March weather had taken a turn for the worse. The kitchen area was clean and tidy and well equipped with the usual appliances.
I think we were a little unfortunate in our timing as one of the adjacent flats was being renovated, so lots of early morning hammering and dust during the day. Future visitors won’t have to put up with that, but don’t expect a Sunday lie-in as the dual carriageway to the rear of the bedrooms becomes a motor cycle race track during weekends as this road is the route to the Gozo ferry and is heavily utilized from early morning and evening at weekends.
Parking one’s car outside the flat is very easy and we never struggled to find a slot – unlike the rest of the island which is awash with cars and impatient drivers. There is a small lift to all flats so access to and from was very easy and friendly to those with minor disabilities. Overall, would I stay there again? Most certainly. I think to sum up I would say that it was a basic holiday flat but with a lot going for it. The owners are good communicators, it has everything you need, it’s easy to access and has great views of St Paul’s bay. Definitely recommended.
For my opinion the appartement was quite nice and has a very nice view from the balkony.
The rooms are quite big and with everything inside you need for a week. The appartement is near a bus station where you can take the bus to the city centre. In front of the appartement are lots of car parking abilities.
