Great little find!
Spotlessly clean and very well appointed including all basic provisions required for a short stay. Jesabel was extremely helpful, was there to greet us and made it clear that she was available for any questions we may have but then left us to enjoy our privacy. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

“Beautiful Loft in Zabbar”
Reviewed January 20, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We spent the first week of 2017 at Jesabel´s wonderful "Loft". Jesabel gave us a very warm welcome on the first morning of the New Year and was a perfect host from the first contact ´til check-out. The Loft is very spacious and perfectly equipped. The kitchen provides everything you need for preparing proper meals, the bed was really comfortable, the towels provided were of quite good quality. We appreciated the comfy sofa and the various English speaking tv channels. Wifi connection was working perfect. As we stayed in January we didn´t spent much time in the "garden" and on the 2 roofterraces, which we would surely have done given warmer weather conditions, as both are very inviting to relax. The Loft is located in a quiet neighborhood allowing privacy and relaxation. You will find within reach a supermarket, petrol station etc. All in all we would highly recommend Jesabel`s loft!

“Beautiful, unique, relaxing - the perfect holiday accommodation”

The Loft is the most beautiful farm building conversion carried out by the extremely talented architect and builder, Aaron. The attention to detail that gives it it's charm includes a beautifully restored stones spiral stair case, reclaimed traditional Maltese tiles and a most wonderful butcher's block used as a setting for the bathroom sink. The Garden is a little haven with fresh growing herbs for your use, an outside area for cooking including a sink, a shaded seating and table area and two sun terraces, one at the front of the garden and one on top of the roof. The living area of the house is open plan with a well stocked kitchen, dining area and lounge with tv and high speed WiFi. Upstairs is a mezzanine bedroom with ensuite bathroom and fabulous large shower. A lovely feature is the large bath tub at the foot of the king sized bed, a real treat after a long day's hiking. There is lots of wardrobe and drawer space and every convenience you could want; lots of fresh towels, soap, shower gel, hair dryer, iron and ironing board etc. Jesabel and Aaron were wonderful hosts. They were so welcoming and generous with their time even though we arrived late in the evening. They gave us loads of useful information about things to do and see in Malta and lots of really handy tips about good local restaurants and a 24 hour bakery in the nearby town in case we needed it. Anytime we needed anything during the week Jesabel was there to help us; she even dropped us up some fresh lemons and pomegranate and printed our boarding passes when I had asked for advise on local internet cafes. The location was perfect for us as we wanted a rural base from which we could explore the island by car, away from the hustle of a busy town but close enough to restaurants and bars. Most evenings we strolled about 15-20 mins into Marsascala where we ate in some amazing restaurants and where there is a vibrant local community. Zabbar was the same distance in the opposite direction and was always good for a late pastizzi or pastry at the 24 hour Big Bun.
We had such a great week and The Loft was central to how relaxing and enjoyable the whole experience was. If you are looking for something unique, beautiful and peaceful then we would highly recommend The Loft without hesitation.

“Amazing accommodation”

Sitting here waiting to go to the airport to head home, all I can say is that I will miss this house. The pictures do not do it justice. It is stunning. Aaron, who built it, did an amazing job at making an intimate and secluded home for couples looking to get away and have some peace and quiet. Both him and Jesabel met us on arrival and warmly welcomed us. We were offered all the information needed to enjoy our holiday and they were only a text away if we needed help. The house has air con in the kitchen/sitting room and bedroom so it was very comfortable. For nights in, the television has a number of great channels including Discovery, National geographic ect. Local supermarket is only a stroll away. If we come back to Malta, we will stay here again. Thanks Jesabel and Aaron for providing amazing 5 star luxury accommodation at a price that even 3 star hotels on the island couldn't beat.

“Great place to enjoy Malta!”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Jesabel and Aaron created a great place not just to stay, but also to enjoy the laid-back countryside of Malta, to come to rest, to soak the sunshine and to spend some quality time with your partner in an intimate, well-thought setting. Communication with Jezebel was uncomplicated, transparent and prompt. Transportation with busses to all main attractions is manageable and reasonable prized, but will take you some extra time. Don't forget to bring some repellent, since midges are frequent visitors.
