Upon entering the house one finds himself in a 42 square meter living room with round sofa, jacuzzi, and 46 inch LED TV. Next to this room is a separate dining room, a well equipped kitchen, and a shower room. A staircase from the living room leads to the bedroom with en suite shower and a 50 square meter roof terrace with garden, outdoor sofa, dining table for 4 and BBQ.

Just beautiful! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Ta Drinu for a week in September 2014 and it was absolutely perfect. Such a beautiful, clean spacious house and so relaxing. The owners (Adrian and Mary Rose) have renovated the whole building beautifully with a jacuzzi the the living room. They are always at the end of the phone if needed and so helpful. The house is in Zabbar which is an easy 20 minute bus ride from the centre of Valletta. There is a well kitted out kitchen with oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, toaster, kettle etc. There was even a welcome pack of bread, cheese, milk, water, biscuits etc waiting for us when we arrived. Zabbar is a very friendly place with a coffee shop, bakery, pharmacy and small supermarket. There is a bigger supermarket 15 minutes walk away. The nearest restaurants are a 30 minute walk away by the waterfront in Birgu. We bought a weekly ticket for the local buses for 6.5 euros which was superb. The buses throughout Malta are air conditioned and regular. We really enjoyed Mdina, Rabat (catacombs), the Saluting Battery (good views), the WW2 Museum in Birgu and generally strolling through Valletta looking at the many historic buildings. All the restaurants we visited were good but particularly those on Archbishop St in Valletta. The Civil Service Club restaurant was pricey but a real treat. I would 100% recommend Ta Drinu and will be telling all my friends about it.

A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5
As soon as you enter the courtyard you know you are somewhere special. With stairs leading up to the well equipped and sheltered roof terrace and bedroom - yes, you have to step outside to go to bed, but with full en-suite this is not a problem - it has an internal and external staircase. the internal one leads to masterpiece of the property - the living room. Fitted with a large round sofa, large tv, stereo, second bathroom and not forgetting the jauzzi - what better way to spend the end of a day of sightseeing than relaxing in the front room in the Jacuzzi - marvellous. The kitchen and dining room have everything you need and there are plenty of local shops to get all you need. If you choose to use buses, like us, there is a bus stop 5 minutes walk away and they are very regular and cheap.
The owners are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
High recommended for a romantic stay. One day we will hopefully return.

The property has to be seen to be believed, it was simply gorgeous and to be met at the airport made the whole experience a very welcoming one. The village was friendly, easily accessible. Total joy! Would recommend it to anyone.

We had a wonderful stay at the Ta'Drinu. Mary Rose and Adrian where very helpful and we could always get in toutch with them easily.
We really enjoyed the hottub and the roofterrace with the lounche and the BBQ.
The village was quiet but everything we needed was in walking distance.
We had a perfect stay and the house was even beter than it looked in the pictures.

Own little haven

  • 5 of 5
We loved this place it was like your own little haven, very romantic and perfect for couples. Its situated in a old part of the town, but dont expect clubs or restaurants however it was great for being amongst the locals who are very friendly. We loved this as you could go out and about in the day and look forward to spending a relaxing evening in the jacuzzi or on the roof terrace. It was very clean and well maintained. Mary Rose and Adrian were very helpful. We would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday.

Ta' Drinu

Ta' Drinu
  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful, relaxing week staying at Ta' Drinu in Zabbar. The house was well equipped and as lovely as the photos show. We made good use of the jacuzzi and it was so good to sit on the roof terrace for meals. Zabbar is a lovely town away from the main tourist area but this added to its charm - the local 'baker's' shop sold almost everything as well as delicious bread and cakes, the cafe in the square was great to visit for coffee and pastries.... Buses run frequently to Valletta and from there to all areas of the island. We had a hire car and I would recommend use of a sat nav as the road system can seem a bit confusing till you get your bearings!! The weather was great for the week we were there. I would highly recommend a stay at this property.
