APARTMENT 500M FROM THE BEACH (INC. WIFI) (DISCOUNT FOR LONG LETS)

Marsaskala Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment in St Thomas Bay

2 bedroom apartment (sleeps 6) 500 metres from the beach in St Thomas Bay, Marsaskala, where you can enjoy walking along the promenade, visit heritage sites, swim or dine in open-air restaurants. Fifteen minutes away from the apartment, there is the bus terminus (village centre of Marsaskala). 3km away you can visit the Three Cities - three small citadel-cities in the port dating back to the 15th century full of old palazzi, museums & a romantic waterfront. Charming these citadels are old churches, castles, narrow streets, heritage museums, a casino, good restaurants & traditional wine bars. From Marsaskala buses go to Valletta where you can visit all its treasures such as St John's Cathedral, Upper Barrakka Gardens, Castille Place, Manoel Theatre, President's Palace, Republic Street, St James' Cavallier, St George Square, Hastings, Sacra Infermeria etc.

The closest beach is a sandy beach 500 metres away. Near this small beach one finds many rocky bays. Being close to the sea is nice both in summer and in winter, because in summer you can swim and sunbathe, and in winter you can walk and explore the cliffs close by, or have a barbeque by the sea on a blanket, or read a book.

Since Marsaskala is a small seaside village there are many places you can swim. Besides beaches, in Malta you could visit megalithic temples, forts built by the Knights, Popeye village, the Blue lagoon, etc. Renting a car depends on your goals. Would you like to drive around and see more? Or would you prefer to take it easy, walk in the countryside, travel by bus and enjoy quality time?

Suggested excursions: (1) Scenic walk through the country side to Marsaxlokk fishing village on a Sunday morning (there is the market). It will take 1 hour (maps at the apartment)

(2) 15 minute bus ride to the Three Cities: heritage, museums, fortifications, everything dating back from the time of the Knights. You will find the bus timetable at the apartment).

(3) Valletta (capital city) built by the Knights. Bus leaves every 20 minutes.

(4) Bay discovering. From Marsaskala you can walk up to the southern tip of Malta and discover small inlets where you can also swim in these small rocky bays.

(5) Walk to St Thomas Castle and Torri Mamo. In summer you can also watch friendly waterpolo mathes at the Marsaskala Waterpolo club.

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It is a cosy, spacious and clean place and has all amenities. The owner was very nice and we were provided with all we needed. The apartment is very close to the beach and we enjoyed going swimming everyday. Restaurants and bars are situated within walking distance. Everywhere is reachable with the bus. Very positive is the fact that we were picked up from the airport to the apartment and vice versa.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed our apartment and your holiday after coming from such far away! Coming for you at the airport, and being there should you need something offer that extra bit for a nicer holiday.

Spacious family apartment

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We spent two weeks in this aparment with our 2-year-old daughter. The rooms were spacious and clean. The location is close to beaches, though in November the weather was most of the time a bit too cold for swimming. But perfect for active holiday outdoors, not too hot!

The flat features two balconies, one to the street and one to the inner yard. The house was quite silent except for a couple of days when renovation was made upstairs.

The owner of the flat lives abroad, but his mother, who takes care of the apartment, was very friendly. She picked us from the port and took us to the airport and always responed quickly when we had something to ask. The owner was also very friendly and flexible.

The flat suited our needs pretty well. Apartment is well suited for the warm season, but during winter it can get a bit chilly. The kitchen was ok, but some of the utensils (e.g. fridge, oven) could be updated. Only basic dishes can be cooked, nothing special. Though Marsascala has lots of restaurants were you can have dinner or lunch.

In brief: The apartment is good for families who need more space, but are not too keen about fancy interiors. Marsascala is a nice small town with good connections to Valletta. Though even the distance is short (~9 km), the bus ride takes 45-60 minutes.

Bonus for families: Marsascala has at least two very nice playgrounds for smaller and bigger children as well!

Reccommended Apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
The apartment in Marsaskala was clean and comfortable. As stated in the advert, the beach is very close. Also the bus stop, a minimarket and a confectionary are also two minutes away. The Maltese way of life was very nice and we enjoyed staying in Marsaskala because although you can find everything (restaurants, playing field, sea, promenade, etc.) it is still calm and cheaper than in the north of the island. The wifi in the apartment was very fast and the beds and sofa were comfortable.

Clean and spacious apartment

We stayed at this apartment for a couple of days and we liked it. It was clean and comfortable. The wifi is fast, beds were comfortable and most of all the countryside, sea and Marsaskala city centre are very close. There is a small supermarket close by and the bus stop is also less then three minutes away.

Winter Break

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
We have just spent a fortnight in this apartment for our winter break in Malta. Stephen the owner and Marianne his mother were very good communicators and helped us where necessary. The apartment is very spacious but much more suited to the warmer weather than the cool weather we have just experienced. One gas heater is really not sufficient during the winter months and we have been quite cold. The apartment was very clean although some of the equipment is starting to need an overhaul. Although we used some of the local restaurants we did cook quite a lot but found it quite challenging with the equipment provided.The local buses were very frequent and cheap to use but we decided to hire a car and this enabled us to get around the island and keep dry during the frequent showers. Overall we had a good break away from snow in the UK and learnt a lot about Malta and its history.

Marsaskala is a small fishing village with restaurants & bars along the promenade and many places to swim (rocky & sandy beaches), a small waterpolo pitch, three playing fields, a small zoo, and a nice footpath to walk along the southeast cost of Malta where you can see sunrise or sunset, swim in secluded coves or just admire the nature.
