Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable for 5 adults. Great views, excellent location. The owner's father, Francis, was very helpful upon our arrival. Very much appreciated all the goodies left for our morning breakfast. Market is nearby as are several restaurants in Birgu Center. The ferry is also close as is the bus stop. Great little private swimming area. A wonderful experience. thank you Connie and Ralph.

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are four friends who holiday for a few days each year and normally stay in hotels. We decided to try an apartment for our trip to Malta and we couldn't have been happier there. The apartment was in a perfect position with a small sheltered balcony which got the morning sun so ideal for sitting out and easing ourselves into the day. The apartment was huge with a large kitchen/dining and lounge area. The lounge had lovely comfortable seats which were very nice to come home to after a long day pounding the streets of Valetta. Connie's father met us on arrival at the apartment and showed us around. The apartment has everything you need and there was milk, bread, cheese and cold meat in the fridge which meant we didn't need to shop until the next day. Birgu itself is charming and everyone we met was friendly and helpful and we didn't have a bad meal anywhere. There was a definite feeling of "coming home" when we stepped off the Valetta ferry. I would definitely recommend staying here and think we will be hard pushed to find another apartment that ticks all the same boxes for our next jaunt. Thanks Connie for making it all so comfortable.

Quiet Location, Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was our first stop after a very long combination of flights from Western Canada. We stayed here for 5 days and absolutely loved it. There are many local restaurants and bars on the waterfront nearby and good bus and ferry transport to everywhere else you might want to go. The apartment itself is fully equipped and comfortable located right above the sea wall with absolutely amazing views of the old cities, the boats and the ocean. Definitely recommend.

Loved Malta and Vittoriosa

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in the heart of the marina, ferry to Valletta a 10 minute walk away. Restaurants, bars and boats, boats, boats. Next door to Fort Angelo, in March, a lovely quiet spot with stunning views.

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.

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.
