The following is a review from clients who have spent a holiday in the house, and it gives a more detailed description of the house :
' This was our 1st time booking accom online so had certain qualms - but they proved to be totally unfounded. The house was exactly as stated on website infact if anything information didn't do it justice. This house is special as is Carmen who is a mine of information I really don't think there's anything she doesn't know - a truly lovely lady. The house was lovely and clean and has absolutely everything you could need even down to books and jigsaws and even more amazing kitchen knives that were lovely and sharp! It is situated about 2mins away from the seafront and the local beach which we found a real bonus after a day of being out and about to come home park up then walk down for an evening swim. A few doors up from the house is what Carmen calls a minute market (rather than mini market) it has all the basics and a few surpises too. Up the top of the road are the main shops (5/10 Mins walk) with some really wonderful fresh fish shops and everything else you could need (fresh bread from the bakers - a definite must) all with the added bonus that it's downhill on the return journey. This house is a true haven - such a refreshing change from souless apartments, etc with character oozing out of it. It is extremely spacious so if a large group were there there is plently of living space as well as bedrooms. The main bedroom (sea facing) is huge and has a wonderful sea view - extremely tranquil in the evening watching the sun set. Carmen's beautifully tended garden is a real treasure - where we did most of our living. It is shaded, plenty of tables and chairs and very private. The plants are so well tended, colourful and pretty a real tribute to Carmen's careful nurturing any garden lover will recognise a kindred spirit. One last thing - the staircase - strange thing I know but it is so elegant and sweeping - holiday clothes didn't do it justice!~ This property is more than a house it really is a little part of Malta. Congratulations Carmen with your house and your welcome you will never be without bookings. Definitely going to return again and again' (Stuart and Judy, Co.Cork,Ireland)
Scuba Diving: The Maltese Islands are a real paradise for divers and snorkellers, as an all-year-round centre! The minimun sea temperature never drops below 14 degrees celcius. The climate and duration of sunshine during the winter months are similar to an average North European summer. The islands offer excellent infrastructure for divers representing a very high standard offering services to the most sophisticated demands. Malta. Gozo and Comino boast a vast range of diving both from shore or by boat. The excellent under water visibility, the unique topographic structure of its underwater landscape, and the healthy flora and fauna, qualify the islands as the ideal place for this wonderful sport. One can also find an abundance of caves, holes, grottos and crevices. The islands also boast a vast variety of wrecks, ranging from the First World War to specifically scuttled wrecks.

Date of Stay 17th May - 1st June 2012
We stayed in the house for two weeks and it was a fantastic holiday indeed! The house and the garden are really beautiful and you have everything you need. We were even a bit surprised because of the very comfortable mattresses, you usually don't find them in hotels or holiday homes. Carmen and Josephine are very welcoming and helpful with anything one could need. Everything is nearby: the beach, a minimarket, a bigger supermarket, restaurants, pubs, the busstation etc.
The transfer from and back to the airport worked perfectly.
The house is located at a perfect spot. Near the sea but nice and quiet. And it's only a 10 minutes walk to Buggiba, were most of the restaurants and bars are. When you walk to Buggiba along the sea, look left and up. There ist a little restaurant up the hill in the bend after the Gillieru hotel. It is calles Don Vito and is definetely worth a visit. They have the best stuffed bread we found on the island! And you have breathtaking view over the little harbour.
We hope to be able to come back soon and wish everyone a fantastic summer!
