Guestbook comments from the owner

Just back from a magnificent week in Malta, the local people are so friendly and helpful, this apartment was ideal for the six adults that stayed, wonderful views, swimming in the sea directly below the balcony is a "must".

This apartment was exactly as described, very clean and spacious with all the mod cons that we could want.

With excellent restaurants along the Harbour front just 5 mins flat walk away. Vittoriosa is a beautiful location with easy access by bus, water taxi or ferry to the city of Valletta.

The airport pick up was arranged without a flaw, Claire (the agent) was very friendly, helpful and informative with local knowledge.

This was one of the best holidays ever, and we will be definitely be returning.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! This apartment in Vittoriosa (Birgu) was perfectly located. A short walk to restaurants and public transport, we were a short ferry ride from Valletta and links to buses all over the island, and right on the waterfront. Situated in the historic area of Birgu we had the best of both worlds - modern, comfortable facilities and a quiet neighbourhood to escape to. The apartment is very spacious with pretty much everything you will need. The view from the balcony is amazing and we spent our evenings sitting on the balcony taking it in.

We appreciated the welcome basket and the fact that Claire met us on our arrival at 9pm. The apartment was a bit tricky to find as you need to go around behind the Grand Harbour Marina where the taxi drops you off.

Wifi was great in the living areas but the signal did not reach the bedrooms.

I would highly recommend staying in this stunning location.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have returned to this great apartment for the second time this year and it is even better than what we remembered.

The professional and easy booking process, the warm welcome, the attention to detail in the way the apartment is organized with everything that we could possibly need, such a well-fitted kitchen, the espresso machine and free pods, the welcome basket, information about Vittoriosa and Malta, just lovely.

We set in the afternoon with a glass of wine in the balcony looking at the ships going through the waterfront and listening to the church bells in the distance, magic.

Vittoriosa is a wonderful medieval city, with little winding streets to discover and great restaurants in every corner, and the Vittoriosa Marina with cafes and wine bars overlooking the super yachts. All within walking distance from the apartment. Don’t miss the Tuesday market and the wonderful water ferry to Valletta.

What a great stay, we'll be back!!!!

Fantastic Apartment, Fabulous Birgu

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was fabulous. The airport pickup was fabulous. The welcome was fabulous. Malta was indeed ... fabulous. It was a great week. We so enjoyed discovering Malta. I really appreciate the pristine condition of the apartment and all the conveniences. We enjoyed the ocean lapping on the rocks just below the balcony while we relaxed in the plush furnishing. Your apartment was the best of modern conveniences juxtaposed with Birgu's medieval monuments and moments. It's quiet. It's away from the tourist in Valletta but still convenient to Valletta and so many other places via bus and water taxi. We were drawn to remain in Birgu some days to visit the museums and with your friendly neighbors. The Cafe du Brazil on the piazza was a great place to linger. We especially appreciated the quality wifi service and equipment as I worked seamlessly via email and Skype for about 50 hours while there. My family enjoyed your fine apartment.

Much thanks for the hospitality Irene. You have a great product. Fabulous week!

Excellent views

  • 5 of 5

Our complementary airport pick up was wonderful, arriving late at night it made our lives so easy.

Nothing prepared us for the spectacular view from the living room as you entered the apartment; you can see Kalkara Creek to one side and Valletta to the other.

The apartment is located facing the Waterfront and you can relax in the balcony with a glass of wine and watch the cruise ships going by.

Very comfortable beds with good quality pillows made for one of the best sleeps we had while on holidays.

Vittoriosa is a medieval city with a lot of history and lovely winding, narrow roads, excellent cafes and restaurants all walking distance from the apartment, the locals are very friendly and always have time for a chat.

All in all a great holiday in a beautiful apartment in the best location in Malta.

Luxury in a Medieval City

  • 5 of 5

We stayed seven nights in this beautiful apartment on the Waterfront, from the booking process with Irene and the arrival welcome by Claire the local manager, we knew we were dealing with very professional people.

While still at home we asked many questions and requested information, nothing was too much trouble for Irene, very prompt response and packed with local knowledge.

We loved swimming just below the apartment and sunbathing on the rocks and then going up for lunch, very well appointed kitchen with everything you need including coffee percolator and tea pot, just lovely.

The apartment is very large and spacious, as we were two couples it was great having two bathrooms.

The apartment is very clean and very well maintained; you can see attention to detail everywhere. Vittoriosa is an amazing city, great restaurants, bars and cafes in the village and on the Marina and the water taxi was so much fun.

Thank you Irene and Claire for a fantastic holiday, we will be back!!!!
