We really enjoyed our stay in Malta , we thought we would have found a landscape different from that we found and we were pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful and historical atmosphere throughtout the island!

The apartment we rented is very large and very well equipped , it is settled in the perfect place : breathtaking view of the opposite cliffs , peaceful surrounding at a stone thrown from the best sight , cafes and restaurant in the islands :we really much liked " Two and half lemon" and " Dom Berto" , two stylish and very cool restaurants in front of the beautiful marina ...would come back soon !

Thank you Connie and mum

Spacious and full of light from the beautiful balcony overlooking Kalkara Creek and Grand Harbour.

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Connie, was very helpful and efficient from the start. This was complimented by the local greeting from her father. A very well equipped apartment with an excellent kitchen with all the utensils and multiple pots and pans for the 'cook' to work their wonders with the excellent local produce. On the cook's day off, there are good local restaurants. Also, it's quiet. We enjoyed an extremely peaceful and restorative week.

Great apartment in a fabulous location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic. The location could not be better, from the balcony you are overlooking the harbour and history and can easily access the Med for a quick swim at the end of a day of exploring and out the parking door you are on the main boardwalk for Grand Harbour and restaurants and boats galore. The apartment itself is very well equipped and was clean and comfortable. The wifi works great and it is very quiet. We hope to come back someday and would not hesitate to stay at this great property!!! Thank you Connie for sharing it with us!! Memories for a lifetime in this beautiful little country!

So comfort and quiet place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this condo very much. It is in a very clean and quiet condo.

The condo itself was clean, nicely furnished and fully stocked with the basics (toiletries, coffee, tea, some spices, cooking oil...). Connie's father was very helpful meeting us and explaining around the condo. We also appreciated the bread and some foods because we were so tired then we couldn't go out. I would highly recommend this condo for anyone wanting to go to Malta.

Blick auf den Hafen

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten das Apartment für 2 Wochen gemietet. Es ist sehr umfangreich eingerichtet, Kinderspielzeug inklusive. Der Blick über den Hafen ist zu jeder Zeit wunderbar.

Begrüßt wurden wir schon am Flughafen von Francis, der uns zu unserem Mietwagen begleitete und den Weg zur Wohnung vorwegfuhr. Er hat uns im Apartment alles gezeigt und erklärt, toller Service!

The apartment is located immediately on the waterfront in Vittoriosa (Birgu). Vittoriosa forms part of the historical 'Three Cities'. It is the location of many historical buildings dating from the period of the Knights of St. John. The apartment is located practically next door to the famous Fortress St. Angelo situated on the promontery and next door to the magnificant Cottonera Marina lined with beautiful (super)yachts and many facilities such as quality restaurants and wine bars. Within the ancient streets of this town one can find all necessary amenities such as grocer, bakery, bank , pharmacy etc. At the water's edge within 200 metes from the apartment you can take a very pleasant boat trip in a traditional Maltese boat to the capital Valetta on the otherside of Grand Harbour or to Sliema. One can also agree with the ferryman to collect you at a fixed time! A water-bus to Valletta is also available a few meters further on. This location offers a mix of history, luxury and an authentic Maltese environment. Moreover one can enjoy a dip in the lovely Mediterranean immediately in front of the apartment. A parking space is reserved for you in the underlying garage.
