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.

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!!!!

What a location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb location and what a lovely apartment. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

The apartment is very large with all the modern comforts, flat screen TV, I-pod dock, fully air condition, unlimited WIFI and good quality furniture and equipment.

The welcome basket was a lovely surprise and much appreciated.

As the apartment faces the Waterfront we had spectacular views and could hear the ships coming into Valletta port.

Vittoriosa is part of The Three Cities, the original seat of the Knights and full of interesting history.

We loved that we can walk to restaurants, cafes and shops.

The locals are very friendly and we found all that we needed in the little shops in the square where local neighbours seat for a chat and a gossip. We also enjoyed the mobile vans coming to the square selling fresh bread, fish, fruit and vegetables.

Don’t miss the Tuesday market just outside the gates of Vittoriosa.

We enjoyed our stay enormously and plan to return. Thank you!

The complementary airport transfer on arrival worked perfectly and took us to the owner's representative waiting for us at this beautifully maintained luxury apartment where we were shown around and had everything necessary explained. The best feature was the picture window and balcony with views to the left across Grand Harbour to Valletta and to the right through the masts of small boats to where the sun catches the silver dome of Kalkara Church. Situated just behind the ancient Fort Angelo, this is the absolutely ideal base for exploring on foot the magical Three Cities and the astonishing Cottonera Lines and for reaching Valletta in ten fascinating minutes on the regular tiny ferry boats. For sandy beaches, sangria and lively night clubs, look elsewhere on Malta but if the island's totally absorbing history and architecture, both ancient and modern, are likely to attract you as they attract my wife and me, we recommend this apartment unreservedly. There are plenty of good restaurants close by but we mostly self-catered in the fully equipped modern kitchen and found that the local shops had everything we needed including gin, tonic and wine. My recommendation for holiday reading is Nicholas Monserrat's Kapillan of Malta: although the main characters are fictional this book shines a brilliant light on Malta through the centuries and in particular on the Grand Harbour area during the Second World War. The best possible place to read it is the balcony of this lovely apartment.

Beautiful comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was just as described and it's location, cleanliness and support from the owners representative could not be faulted. The area is charming and authentic and within a stones throw there are good restaurants, local shops and a bakery. Getting to the centre of Valletta was easy using the half hourly ferry which connects with the new lift to the upper town. Buses are also an option. The only niggle was the rent was E100 more a week than the price advertised on various web sites; despite assurances that the sites are out of date and are being updated, this has not occurred so check the actual rental price before confirming your booking.
