“Non plus ultra (nothing better)”
Reviewed July 12, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Malcom's apartment is located in Bugibba, a busy touristy northern area which is perfect for a short stay (if you have a car), Gozo and some of the best shores of Malta are all within 15 minutes' ride. If you dont plan to rent a car maybe Bugibba is not the most romantic destination of Malta but as an experienced traveller I can say "do not overlook Bugibba" To the spacious apartment now: everything is brand new and shining, Malcom (whom I have never met personally) was very friendly and flexible on the phone. A/C is in every room (bathroom included) except the small bed room, but fresh air is flowing all over if you open the windows. Good restaurants all around the place and, if you are on a tight budget, a dish washer and a washing machine complete the furnitures. The apt. is on the fourth of four floors, with a lift. I don't think you can find a better solution in Malta for your holidays. Probably I forgot to mention the Satellite TV and home theatre and something else. Hey Malcom! Can you hear me? I want 2 days for free next time I come after this review. :) ;) Enjoy !

“Average accomodation”

My wife and I booked this apartment for Xmas 2016 and into the New Year. Upon arrival we were met by the owner, Malcolm, who was very informative and helpful in all ways. The apartment, was not as clean as you would expect and the PVC settee in the lounge was in very poor condition, we would not entertain sitting on it, The owner informed us it was being replaced but should have been before renting it out to clients. The bedding in my opinion was very tired/poor and needed replacing. The apartment is in a block and is on the top floor reached by a lift or stairs if you wish, the foyer was not particularly inviting, very run down.
The location of the apartment is not particularly great, the area is very built up and continual traffic on a very narrow road. The streets are dirty and when we were there for a short time water flooding the streets and pavements there being no drainage at all.
Directly opposite the apartment is a block of apartments, for any person who has any thought or care about our feather friends there are birds caged up in very small cages, very upsetting especially to my wife.
Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to return to the UK urgently therefore our stay was short but have to say would not have wished to stay there any longer.
We do have very high expectations and therefore may be suitable for some but certainly not us!

“Outstanding apartment in central location”
Reviewed November 2, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Located centrally between bugibba square and bus station, this apartment opened its doors to us as home for the week. My partner arrived before myself and children and Mal was more than welcoming offering to arrange taxis, key pick up and giving a telephone number for any issues (not that we had any!).
Mal has the apartment set up beautifully with modern appliances, great storage, a beautiful and extremely powerful shower and if you look straight ahead standing on the balcony you can even see the sea!! Within the drawers are a vast collection of leaflets and days out suggestions, alongside bits and pieces invade you've left anything behind (phone charger and towels were most appreciated in these circumstances!)
The apartment was clean, well kept with every item we could possibly need. It was a luxurious home from home which we felt privileged to have chosen and also a base where we could easily prepare meals, meet friends/family and relax as we chose.
Would highly recommend and would definitely book again!!

“A good base”
Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed late September and could not fault the apartment as we had everything you could need except a can opener which i purchased and left in the apartment. So if you are thinking of staying here it is a great base as down stairs and 20 Metres to the left is The Happy Grill which has a great menu but beware the portions are enormous. Another 20 Metres on from there is Munchies Bar which is very cheap and has all the sports on various screens so not far to stagger back. My only caution if you are on a budget is we were told by Malcolm on arrival that you have to pay for the Electricity you use via a pay Meter (not mentioned on the booking site) in our case it was 20 Euros but there was already 7.50 Euros left on the Meter so 27.50 Euros just about lasted the 10 days we were there. But as i have said the apartment is very spacious and although the front balcony is on the main busy road the back bedrooms are very quiet once you shut the balcony doors.

“EVERYTHING YOU NEED”
Reviewed September 12, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment is well equipped and managed to a very high standard. Very clean and comfortable with air con or fans in each bedroom. Large selection of kitchen equipment provided and comfortable dining area, WiFi, TV etc and good selection of DVDs and holiday information. Mal is very helpful and arranged taxis for us from and to the airport and is easily on call should there be any problems (which there weren't). The apartment is located close to shops, bars, restaurants and agency to organise sight seeing trips. The bus depot is a short walk away with availability of routes all over the island running very regularly to hop off and on where you want to. Easy walk to both the beaches and promenades at Qwara and Buggiba.

“Lovely stay, very helpful owner”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The apartment is well stocked with everything you need away from home. It is comfortable with all modern appliances. It is not far from any amenities, short walk to the bus station, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Malcolm is very helpful, arranging a taxi for us at the airport and even met us with extra keys when we locked ourselves out on a Sunday!
Hopefully we will be back.

As a family that travels a lot and usually rents an apartment to stay in, I would highly recommend Antonia Apartment 8 as one of the the best places to explore and relax in Malta.
The apartment is well designed and equipped: both master bedroom and the second bedroom have got good size wardrobes, night tables, air conditioning and quite comfy beds. The bathroom is modern and spacious. The kitchen has got more utensils than one can even wish for. We mostly used the kettle to make a cuppa and the fridge to keep fruit, cheese and wine fresh and cool as there's no real need to cook in Qawra. The street downstairs is peppered with all sorts of pubs, restaurants, take -aways that offer very reasonably priced freshly made food and cater for any taste. There are also convenience stores and a supermarket nearby. Apart from that, the beach with a lovely promenade, car museum and the Aquarium are 5-10 min walk from the apartment. The area is pretty quiet in January but all places are open and the service is probably much better than in boiling -hot, tourist-packed summer.
Back to the apartment - the living room and the dining area feel cosy and relaxing with nice paintings on the walls, dimmed lights, decent choice of DVDs and TV programs. The whole apartment creates homey, relaxing atmosphere and it is very clean!
Our landlord, Malcolm, has been the most helpful and accommodating and we are already thinking of renting his place again in October for more scuba diving experience.
