About the property

Luxury Seafront Penthouse, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

A designer 2 Bedroomed seafront Penthouse, fully air conditioned, with a breathtaking 30sqm terrace overlooking the Grand Harbour and Fort St. Angelo. Opposite is the historic town of Vittoriosa (Birgu), where the Great Siege took place in 1565. Next to it lies the cosmopolitan Cottonera Waterfront with restaurants, cafés and promenades leading to the Camper and Nicholson Yacht Marina.

The modern kitchen has all the appliances you would expect, including a dishwasher. The open plan living room leads directly onto the terrace and there is free broadband internet WiFi throughout the apartment.

Towards the rear one can find two double bedrooms and a terrace overlooking a quiet street of character, typical of the area. There is also a separate bathroom.

The Penthouse is perfectly situated for all the cultural sights in the area. Valletta is a short trip away on the regular ferry across the harbour. There is a good bus service for €6.50 per person of unlimited travel across all of Malta for a week. Hiring a car is recommended, especially if you would like to visit the sister islands of Gozo and Comino, go swimming or explore off the beaten track.

There are restaurants and cafés along the Senglea promenade and the Vittoriosa waterfront is only a short walk around Dockyard Creek, or a quick hop across the water on a traditional water taxi, Dghajsa (“dysa”), that resembles a gondola. There you will find a variety of restaurants, wine bars and cafés.

The Marsa Sports Club, offering tennis and golf facilities, lies just a couple of miles away.

The Penthouse is on the 3rd floor with lift.

Airport transfers can be arranged for €35, one-way.

Prices quoted are exclusive of 18% VAT.

Outstanding apartment and service.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and location was everything we wished for. From beginning to end everything was dealt with in a friendly and professional manner. All communications were straightforward and response time was quick. Joseph met us on arrival and showed us round the apartment. The provided information booklet was excellent. Daniel, the owner, helped us to check out and was keen to hear about our holiday experience. He helped us with our luggage, walked with us to the taxi and stayed with us until the taxi arrived. He was friendly and charming. The apartment itself was exactly as described and as shown in the photographs.The views were stunning - arguably some of the best in Malta. The apartment was very clean and tidy, and well maintained. Although at the top of the building, there is a lift for those that might be put off by the steps. The local area was genuinely Maltese as opposed to touristy. The local shops had all the essentials and the local restaurants were all excellent and very reasonably priced. The food and service in 'Enchante' were particularly good. We found getting around the island very easy and cheap on public transport. The most pleasant and quickest way to Valletta was by the ferry, but from there it is only a short walk to the bus station from where you can easily get to anywhere on the island. We particularly enjoyed Mdina and the fish restaurants at Masaxlokk.

We only had a short stay in the apartment, but it was everything we could have wished for. I would not hesitate in recommending it to others.

Beautiful apt with somptuous view on Valletta

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in Senglea, that is one the historic Three Cities. It is located at the top of an old building with a lift, with an incredible view on Grand Harbour and Valletta. After a 15 min walk along Senglea-Birgu marina, you reach the sea shuttle stop that brings you to Valletta in 10 minutes. The area is quiet, with few tourists and an authentic Maltese feel.

In addition to a big terrace, the apartment has huge bay windows and is very pleasant to live in. It is very well equipped and really nicely decorated with a personal touch.

Groceries, as well as restaurants along the marina, are at walking distance

We would definitely recommand the apartment.

the view is just the best

  • 5 of 5

the whole apartment is very well furnished and attractive, but it is really all about the view and over half the space is used for the massive balcony and glass walled living room attached to that... we spent more than half the time just sitting reading or just watching... we have been to Senglea several times now and enjoy the peaceful quiet ambience, the waterside bars and restaurants and the daily swim in the harbour..

Una Favola!

  • 5 of 5

Eravamo già stati a Malta parecchie volte per lavoro pochi anni fa ma avevamo pensato di passare una settimana a febbraio a goderci l'isola con tutte le sue mille sfaccettature. Abbiamo scelto questo appartamento siccome il panorama sembrava spettacolare. E invece era più di così; era semplicemente favoloso, incantevole. Le foto non rendono.

Questo appartamento è in una posizione stupenda, vicinissima alla barca che si può prendere per arrivare a Valletta in pochi minuti.

Al nostro arrivo, Joseph ci stava aspettando, è stato gentilissimo e disponibilissimo. Ci siamo sentito davvero i benvenuti; avevano preparato pure una bottiglia di vino in frigo, della birra, pane, caffè, persino una busta con degli ottimi prodotti naturali (shampoo, bagno schiuma, crema idratante).

Abbiamo passato tantissimo tempo qui e di sicuro ritorneremo al più presto.

Lovely apartment, great location, wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Malta and we knew very little about the Island or where to stay. We chose this property from the photos, descriptions and reviews, and it exceeded expectations! Joseph who manages the property arranged our airport transfers from and to the airport, and met us at the property to check us in and out. He took plenty of time to talk us through the property so we were happy and comfortable from the very start. We had communicated with Joseph through email and by text when booking and on arrival, so we knew that he was only a phone call away if needed.

The apartment is very comfortably furnished with everything needed for a relaxed stay. The terrace provides ever changing views of th harbour, day and night, and is a really comfortable place to relax.

Senglea (Isla) is a quiet small town, with plenty of small shops close to the apartment, and a variety of harbour side restaurants. We liked Enchante for an evening meal. The church is beautiful and should be visited when services aren't on.

We used the ferry to Valletta, the bus to Sliema, and arranged to be picked up in Senglea on the day we did the round Malta cruise. Senglea has good transport links round the island. It's quiet in the evenings so is a great place to stay if you don't want night clubs and noise!

We really loved Malta, and this apartment, and will definitely return. We highly recommend this property, it's clean and we-maintained. There is loads to see and do in the local area, so although you can easily travel all over th island from here, you can also stay fairly local and enjoy Senglea itself, Vittoriosa, Valletta and other nearby attractions. Vittoriosa is across the harbour and has the Inquisitors Palace and the Maritime Museum, while Valletta is a short ferry ride and we visited St John's cathedral, the Saluting Battery, Lascaris War Rooms, St Elmo's Fort and the Palace state rooms and armoury. There are baches a short distance away (you should take your own beach towels). All in all this apartment and its location has everything we were looking for and we are already planning a return trip.
