About Neville Galea

My family has been renting holiday accommodation since 1981.

We know exactly what a tourist look for in a apartment and we do our best to deliver. We make sure all guests are having a comfortable stay and a great holiday trough out.

Neville Galea purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Neville Galea chose Paceville

Clients love the location and the view from the living room and the 2 balconies!

The location of apartment is idyllic. It is just 10m from the sea. It is close to bars, restaurants, supermarkets The street is a main road but since the apartment is high up traffic noise is not loud.

The bus stop is just 100m away. The buses from this bus stop go to all tourist attractions in Malta.

Sliema Ferries is also just 1500m from the apartment. From here you can cross by ferry to Valletta, do one day cruises around the island, visit the Blu Lagoon, or make a smaller trip around the Grand Harbour.

What makes this apartment unique

Location Location Location, the views and the size of the property!

Fabulous Flat for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a flat for a hen do with 10 lovely ladies and this gem was absolutely perfect! Neville and his crew are so helpful with responding to all my questions before our arrival (there were a lot!). We organised our airport pickup through Neville and it made the 6am flight bearable to know we would be whisked away upon arrival. The driver greeted us with a sign which was very easy to locate.

Once in the flat the first thing that hits you is the AMAZING VIEW. It overlooks Spinola Bay with two separate balconies that everyone loved to drink morning coffee and people watch. We also had a very cute chatty neighbour that resembled an older Harry Styles which was a plus!

Once we made it to the flat we were given an overview of all the activities on the island which was very nice. Any question you have, they can answer.

We loved how large the lounge was. We were able to dance around, play games and have group dinners without feeling the least bit crowded. The bedrooms were very clean and we had two towels each which was great since some of our group walked across the street to take a dip in the bay. There were more than enough bathrooms with the one very minor issue of the floors getting a bit wet because the bath mats would get soaked with 10 people using them! This didn't bother it's at all because we were always out and about enjoying this beautiful island.

Neville was really helpful with booking taxis for us and even helped me get my money back when I accidentally paid twice! I can't recommend him and his team enough. We loved our stay and hope to return!

“We stayed in this apartment from the 26th of may until the second of June. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very well kept; the beds were comfortable and the multiple bathrooms were very useful for a large group like ours. Everything in the kitchen worked perfectly fine and there was enough cutlery and tableware for everyone. Another plus, the view from the balcony was amazing, giving you an awesome view of Spinola Bay and on the far right you could just see the beautiful city of Sliema. The location is great, with a good connection to the bus network making it a great starting location from which we could explore the beautiful island. It is also a walking distance from the best party area in Malta, Paceville, which meant that we could go out without having to worry about taking a night bus or a taxi back, we could just walk back home. All in all, we had an amazing holiday and thanks to the apartment we had a great home to come back to after a long day of exploring the island.”

Beautiful Spinola Bay!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in Spinola bay and rented two apartments. The view was amazing! If you are looking to be near bars and lots of restaurants this is the perfect place. Our apartment was very clean and very spacious. We had a couple of minor issues but they were looked after right away, which was very pleasing. All appliances worked well...just need to get a proper coffee pot, and a stronger light bulb in the kitchen. There is a lot of construction going on at the moment so it was noisy. Matresses were uncomfortable. Need to be updated especially if people are staying for a long period of time,like we did. Apart from those couple of issues...we would definitely go back! Thank you Neville and Ruth for everything!!!!

Our unit apartment #7 on the 4th floor was most adequate for our 3 month winter visit. The location is superb with all services being close. The apartment is very large and great for large families and friends. We were mostly 2 persons although we had our family of 4 visit . As the winter this year was a bit cool, Neville provided a propane heater as well as 2 small electric heaters for the living area. 2 of the 3 bedrooms have heat/ac exchangers but the master only ac.. |This posed no problem for us, and Neville was fast to replace the propane as needed. The shower in the master bed was poor - shower curtain and sink in floor....and Neville advises it will be replaced. We were able to find a removable shower head holder for the bathtub in the main bath so this was perfect .

Loads of cooking utensils and we cooked in most of the time.

Both tv and internet were excellent with stations even from Canada to view curling championships !!!.

The building was kept very clean and has a good working elavator. We had a rental car for our stay, but parking is almost non existent in front of apartment. However, there is a new car park close by with great rates. Otherwise it is an issue. Another option is free parking at the Pembrooke Park and Ride. You can either walk there for 10 mins or pay 1.50 euro on bus.

For us, Malta offered a great winter escape, with warm, hospitable people and great history, food and drink..

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. Glad you enjoyed it and found all to your satisfaction. In fact the location is ideal with all amenities close. This off course leads to the fact that it is a busy area as it is one of the most desired locations both for tourists and Maltese. We do not recommend a car hire as all amenities are close and the apartment is on the busiest bus routes. Being such a popular area parking can be difficult. We really work hard to keep our apartments super clean and fresh. We have our own cleaners, maintenance persons, stores full with spares and representatives that see to our guests needs. Out office is open long hours every day and we are reachable by email, Facebook and Whats App. We also have an emergency 24/7 phone. We would have hoped for a higher star rating since you had so many good comments about the apartment. However we thank you for finding the time to share your experience with our future guests!. We look forward to have you and your friends again as our guests.
