APARTMENT 2 - YELLOW

Madliena Apartment Rental Photos and Description

An escape to a serene and peacful hamlet but minutes away from entertainment hub

A choice of 3 tranquil villa apartments with all amenities in this exclusive part of Malta. Quiet and peaceful yet only minutes away from the entertainment hub of Paceville and the more popular St. Julians Bay with its many restaurants and great bars. Properties also enjoys the use of a large swimming pool (41 sq m), sunbeds, deckchairs, hammock for a couple, 3 seater hammock swing, rocking bench, large umbrellas, gazebo seating for 8, barbecue area with its own fridge and kitchen facilities, shower and WC facilities by pool area. The dedicated solar heating system for the pool allows use of the pool from April to October. Access to pool area is via wooden bridge over large cascading koy fish pond. A further gazebo with vine tree is adjacent to a smaller water turtle pond. Very romantic setting in this hilltop area with extensive views of Malta, where the tropical garden and the cascading waters from the fish ponds continue to add to the serenity that the whole place seems to create.

Our pets: Our garden, although small, is very mature and extremely well kept, providing a tranquil atmosphere, also helped by the sound of the cascading waters in the background. Our own pets, (cats and dog), other than the koy fish and turtles already mentioned, also have their own separate dens, and are well kept, pampered and cared for.

For those who want more out of their holiday: The pool and garden areas have proven to be a refreshing start or close to any day, particularly if this was a warm or even a blistering one. But Malta has much more to offer than just lazing about in the sun. For this reason we have teamed up with some of the most interesting tour, leisure and event operators on the island, providing day cruises around the Maltese archipelago on a Turkish gullet, an evening’s entertainment extravaganza live show on the 1565 Great Siege of Malta, a visit to the nearby water marine park, an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience swim with the dolphins, or how about exploring some of the most interesting dive sites in the Mediterranean. In collaboration with our friends at Go Dive Malta, we are now also able to offer this experience to practically everyone, from beginners to dive masters. Transport arrangements have also been secured for all these events to pick our guests from our apartments (or very close by).

What we stand for.: We have been called ‘a home away from home’ by some of our past guests, a name which honours us completely, and while we continue to dispense recommendations on what to do and where to go during your stay to help you better discover these culture-packed islands, we will strive to live up to that name and better our product.

That was our first holiday in Malta, but I hope not last :) Arrived late and tired in Malta airport. Josanne (villa owner) send me instructions how to get to villa. We still manage to get lost, so she send her son to meet us. That was helpful. Villa is in a quiet area and car is essential to get to places. Nearest food shop 15 min away doh. Facilities exactly what expected. We rented yellow apartments, enough space for four adults and my 8 year old son. Two showers came very handy too. Swimming pool was bit too cold for me, but my friends had a dip on a sunny days. Garden absolutely great, a shame never had barbecue - not enough time. Oh well maybe next time :) Every time of our stay Josanne was very helpful, but not too much in your face..:) Villa is great for family or group of friends. Good for value. For couples I would look for something more luxury..

too far out from any main bar or restaurant

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 11, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
This had a lovley garden space however too cold to use due to exceptionally wet weather.

We hired a car, this area is in my opinion 'a bit out of the way' if you want to be able to walk to a bar or restaurant.

Toby the dog was a lovely presence and we became foster parents to one of the cats all week which we enjoyed

The appartment I feel is expensive for the quality and kettle was broke but no one checked to see if everything was ok - but we managed to boil with a pan of water....

Owners were very helpful in arranging lifts and being flexible with our arrival date although did not appreciate being told to hurry up and 'get straight to the appartment' when we wanted to stop for lunch on the way on the first day of our holiday

I would reccommend staying here in a group in nice weather to enjoy the garden area and pool but having visted Malta many times now would not stay in this area again. It felt very private which here and possible you will have an enjoyable stay here - thank you to Josanne for your help with our booking etc.....
Owner's Response: Hello Kerry,

Thank you for staying with us and we are sorry that the weather was exceptionally wet during your stay with us (we remember you also wished to swim).

These apartments are infact advertized as being 'out of the way' (an escape to a serene and peaceful hamlet) and that a car is recommended, thus our perhaps ridiculously cheap price during the winter months, especially for the Orange apartment (we are forbidden to quote prices but one can still look at the website to view our tariffs). Notwithstanding this, we still supply our guests with a full complimentary food pack, and at the end of the day, there is really not much profit left, but we do this out of love and the passion that comes along with welcoming new guests staying with us.

We are sorry that we had not realized that the kettle was broken - unless we are told about certain things we may not be able to know. With living above the apartment, we were not far away and we would have been glad to oblige and immediately replace it with a working one. We do like to leave our guests enjoy their privacy and so we prefer not to intrude on their holiday unless of course we are requested to do so to assist them.

On the day of your arrival, which had been understandably postponed a couple of times, we also had another arrival later that afternoon. As we realized that your flight had arrived late morning, we expected that at maximum you would be at the apartment around 13:00 hrs. We infact had made other plans for the afternoon (an arrival in another apartment) and so we were restricted for time. Unfortunately had we been advised earlier of your intention to go for lunch before visiting us, we would have tried to make alternative arrangements, and it was only after we called your mobile that we realized what your plans were.

Thank you for loving Toby, he is a wonderful dog, but our cat must have become over-accustomed to being fostered because we found a whole school of them (presumably its friends) in the apartment, having gone through the garbage, and making a mess on the beds, for which we have also had to throw away the mattresses, and to strip down the place completely - apparently the door must have been left open when you left the apartment on your departure.

Should you visit Malta again and wish to use us for your holiday, we can then recommend more central areas for our other apartments located in St. Julians, Sliema and St. Paul's Bay.

Regards

Josanne

What do People Want !!!?

My friends and I go away every year, we are a group of usually about 10 Firemen who go away to celebrate St Pats Day, this year we went to celebrate St Georges Day, and decided on Malta. I originally enquired about another house but Paul contacted me and offered this. We were not disappointed, the pictures do not do it justice. We asked Paul to get us 100 bottles of beer in for our arrival which he did without question.
We were picked up at the airport and arrived to be shown round by Josanne, the apartments were spotless and cool, everyone was given a beer (oh yes there was a welcome pack in each apartment including more beer , champagne and bread, ham, cheese, jam etc)
Once we settled in and were enjoying a refreshing drink by the pool, Josanne prepared a beautiful meal for us (totally unexpected and very welcome). Within a couple of hours we were at home. The apartments were spotless and cleaned every day as is the outside patio area. If you don't like animals don't come, in other words look at the description written by the owners!!! When we ran out of beer Josanne would take us to the supermarket, there are even shops that will deliver.
When we went out we walked at first but as the week wore on we became lazy so Josanne ordered a minibus for us, we adopted it and used it to take us out and bring us back. Some days we would laze by the pool and have a barby, others we would hit Valletta.
So what if the owners are on site, do people have something to hide? We thought it was good for security, as was Toby the dog, you wouldn't want to tangle with him.
Negatives none, apart from the area isn't too well lit up at night, two of our party got lost going home but that was more to do with their incapacity to handle Maltese Beer rather that poor light.
Positives, too many to mention here but I'll try.
Clean airy apartments, superb patio area with different nooks and crannies to hide yourself away in. Superb hospitality from our hosts and I cannot stress this enough, if we wanted anything, we just had to ask. The pool was warm and clean, there is an outside shower room and toilet so you don't have to go in wet. Outside fridge so you don't have to keep going in for a beer. Outside seperate kitchen so you don't have get everything out of the apartments for the barby.
So to sum it all up, this is a fantastic holiday venue , whether you are a group of lads or a familly with kids, nothing is too much trouble for the hosts, P & J thanks for everthing x

Myself, my husband and our children (11 and 14) all really enjoyed our short break at this lovely appartment. It is about 20 minutes from the airport (owners arrange pick-up on arrival) and away from the crowds. The owners Paul and Josanne live on site, and are incredibaly helpful and friendly
The best thing is access to a lovely heated quiet pool and relaxing poolside area.
The nearest shops are about 15 minwalk(as are bus stops). A car is the best option to get around (arrnaged by owners if required with on site pick up and drop off)-driving is no where near as bad as the guide books suggest-but we found the Sat Nav on our phones invaluable as the signs aren't that clear.

Swimming with dolphins in the marine park is a real treat. We also enjoyed a Captain Morgan round island cruise with swimming at the Blue Lagoon in Comino (arranged by owners)

We also enjoyed a trip to the Traxien Temples and Hypogeum, although the latter needs advance booking on line.

All in all, I would recommend this location , even for a short break, if you want great weather, good food, clean and comfortable accommodation, and the chance to relax but also enjoy some local history and attractions

Madliena's pristine location between two valleys provides a perfect opportunity for countryside walks. This hamlet is located on one of the highest points on the island thus helping to 'cool' down the hot summer nights with its gentle breeze off the nearby coastal areas. From here one can see right across the island, all the way from Marsaxlokk, to Mdina, Valletta, and the north of the island. An important feature in Madliena are the Victoria lines where a natural fault runs roughly east to west across the island. It was the British who, by 1900 built a series of forts with intervening walls and gun emplacements along the 12km of the ridge. Because of its vantage point, Madliena was mostly used for military reasons with the most important site being the Madliena Tower. Within close vicinity, one can also find the Meditteraneo Water Park, Malta’s only marine park. This is a popular place with its many water rides, attraction pools and marine part where one can also swim with dolphins.
