Four days in Sunny Malta

  • 4 of 5

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

Beautiful home with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful property for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. We were met by Connie's father who made us feel very welcome (even though it was late at night!) and he gave us a helpful introduction to the home and the area. The property itself was in a great condition and we instantly felt at home.

We did not hire a car but found it easy to get to Valletta and the other areas on the island that we wanted to visit. The highlight of our stay was a boat trip to the Blue Lagoon.

We were sad to leave this island, its friendly people and such a lovely home. If you are planning on visiting Malta I would highly recommend this property as your home away from home.

Perfect Place to stay in Malta

  • 5 of 5

All too often the photos & decriptions do not match the reality but this apartment is even better than it appears. It literally sits on the waterfront and the views are not just beautiful but mesmerising. Connie the host was so very kind as we had to change our dates at the last moment due to a family emergency. With her help we were able to change to a later date and met by her very charming Father when we arrived. The apartment was spotless and luxurioius. It was an easy walk to restaurants & cafes and the near-by villages. A boat taxi and ferry were close by whenever you wanted to go to the main city Valetta or other locations. I would come back here every year if I could.

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!

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.
