“Highly recommended”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We found Waterfront Boutique Apartment very good - spacious, extremely well equipped, modern and with everything required for a very comfortable stay in Malta.

The booking and administration arrangements were extremely well handled with prompt and straightforward responses to all our emails in perfect English, and the deposit was returned immediately. The complimentary pick-up from the airport with transportation to the apartment was a wonderful bonus - removing the stressful element of arriving in a new country and immediately having to find your own way to your destination.

On arrival at the flat we were met by the local agent who let us in and explained how everything worked including the WiFi, the air conditioning and the key operated lifts - no thumbing through instruction manuals or trying to figure out things for yourself! On a more mundane level - but extremely useful - was the fact that she was also able to answer a whole series of questions about Malta and offer advise with her first hand knowledge of having lived in the country all her life.

An extremely comprehensive range of complimentary food provisions awaited us at the apartment - by far the most generous we have experienced in many years of staying in self-catering holiday-lets. In addition to all the basics there was also everything required for a number of complete meals, which was very welcome and removed the need to go out and try to find food shops immediately on arrival.

The free dedicated car parking space which came with the apartment was a great bonus too for when our hire-car arrived; parking places in built-up Malta were difficult to come by.

The apartment itself was extremely well located, in an old and characterful part of town and at the end of the peninsular - which meant that the considerable noise of passing traffic was non-existent and you were surrounded by local people rather than tourists who might have been out to have a good time. It was very close too to a series of excellent and reasonable restaurants, a range of local shops, and the water taxi to Valetta. The sea, in which we swam most days, was just yards from the entrance.

All in all highly recommended; a comfortable and well positioned base from which to explore Malta, and one to which we would return without hesitation.

We stayed in this very spacious and comfortable apartment eleven days. It is very quiet, restful and very well kept with a BEAUTIFUL sea view from the terrace.
The apartment is also greatly located ; just 2 mn walk from Birgu Marina restaurants, 7 mn walk to Birgu main square and 10 mn from the ferry to Valetta. Plus being in Birgu/Vittoriosa in a must : the medieval city is a real gem offering interesting sites to visit and great walks in the past.
We must say that from the reservation time with Irene, very kind and professional, and all thru our holidays, everything went perfect, even more than expected.
We loved Malta, Gozo and we will for sure come back. Staying in Birgu, is for us the best location to choose for a stay in Malta and water boutique apartment will remain our preferred option.
Thank you Irene, Claire and the very nice lady who welcome us upon arrival.

Booking and check in was very professional and efficient. I travelled with my husband and parents in law with this being a three bedroom apartment with the two king rooms separated by a twin room meant that we had plenty of privacy. The apartment is very very spacious . Everything was spotlessly clean. The bed and linen was very comfortable. The bedrooms are at the rear of the apartment so you are not woken by the rising sun. The view is spectacular and the aspect is very good. There is a washing machine and drying rack. The reverse cycle air con was very effective. The kitchen was fully equipped and there was enough pantry ingredients to cook a meal if you wanted to without even going to the shop. We appreciated our complimentary provisions pack including bread and wine. Both delicious. The apartment complex has security and we didn't see or hear any or our neighbours for the entire week. The location is excellent, it is close to Valetta and well serviced by public transport but not at all touristy. You can get to Valetta via bus or water taxi, we enjoyed the water taxi as it was quick and well priced (note this is not the traditional boat service that operates from the freedom monument, keep going along the waterfront a bit more and you'll see the departure point where there is some construction underway). My father in law enjoyed early morning walks toward Kalkara. You'll see fishermen and plenty of early risers walking their dogs. I highly recommend this apartment, despite all the positive reviews I was still really surprised at how exceptional the property is.

Superb! Very efficient and swift complimentary airport transfer arrangements, greeted at the apartment building by Irene's manager Claire who took us to the luxury apartment and showed us how everything worked including the fast broadband connection. Glorious views from the balcony across magical Grand Harbour to Valletta to which we traveled most days by water taxi. This must be the best location in Malta to soak up the island's absorbing history, ancient and modern. It's not so good if you want noise and a crowded beach nearby: Malta is not just another Mediterranean island offering sun, sand and sangria. Especially if you are based in this apartment, Malta is a fascinating, dignified beautiful place for long walks, quiet reflection and very friendly natives. Oh, and our security deposit was repaid very promptly.

“Excellent apartment in the best location in Malta”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We were a three generation party - my husband and me - our daughter and grandchildren aged 17 and 16. This apartment was elegant and clean. The location was first rate on the water's edge where we were able to swim from the rocks just below and although in a quiet location just around the corner a yacht marina had waterfront restaurants. It was a water-taxi ride away from the Capital - Valletta. We were very glad that we were not in the main tourist area. The only slight disappointment was the size of the balcony which was really only adequate for two people - but we did manage evening drinks together - but difficult for five people to eat on the balcony.
A secure parking space was inclusive in the rate - if we return to Malta we would always stay in this apartment.
We have not yet had our security deposit returned - but I am assured that this will happen within two week's of our stay.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for all your kind words.
Just in response to your comments although the balcony may be compact, the sliding doors from the balcony open into the open plan lounge and dining room seating 6 people at the table with spectacular views of one of the last remaining natural Harbours in the Mediterranean, you are actually right on the waters edge.
By the time your review was published your deposit was already returned, we make sure all bonds are promptly returned to our guests.
Thank you once again for choosing our apartment for your holidays and we hope to see you again back soon.

“Excellent accommodation, superb location”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We were a group of 5 adults, who had travelled for 6 weeks through Britain, and stopped off in Malta on the last leg of our holiday. We were looking for a relaxing stay, where we could enjoy one week without having to move every night, as we had done throughout our holiday, so our expectations were high. We were not disappointed. The location could not have been better, with superb views from the balcony to the sea below a bonus. The apartment was HUGE, very well equipped and certainly met our expectations. There was a lift which assisted us greatly with our luggage and for those in our group who had trouble with stairs. The apartment was very well maintained, is located close to restaurants and small shops sufficient to meet our needs. We were met at the airport by prior arrangement without any problems. On arrival at the apartment we were greeted and shown the facilities available to us, there was even a welcome pack of bread, wine and milk to help us settle in. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment, especially if you are looking for a holiday away from the glitzy tourist trail and wish to soak up the ambience of traditional Malta.
