Our stay in this apartment was really relaxed and we enjoyed our time. It is a big and comfortable flat and it is fully equipped . There is enough space for three people.

The highlight is the amazing view from the huge terrace over the city.

Furthermore, there is a good infrastructure and you can easily walk to the next bus stop. You can take the bus to reach all the sights or other destinations.

Close to the apartment is a little shop for small shoppings and a bigger one where you can find eyerything is approximate a two minutes walk away.

Richard is a friendly and attentive owner. He cares about his customers and wants to make there stay as great as possible.

We would highly recommend this Penthouse apartment.

Our second visit to this wonderful penthouse and w

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at the penthouse. Added the car hire to our booking but only used it twice. The apartment had everything we needed and supermarket down stairs and just around the corner, no need to go far. We came for the sun and got it all day long on the balcony. Discovered around 8 or 9 restaurants only 10 minutes walk away. Over by the university, so everything we wanted was there. If you want to visit places around the island, you can get a bus to just about everywhere from the hospital, just across the road. Richard is always available on the phone to help with any problems or advice.

Magnificent views

  • 5 of 5

What a find. We were on a first visit to Malta and decided to book Richards sunny penthouse apartment. We decided to pass on the hire car package opting to be pick up and dropped off by taxi organised by Richard. The driver was waiting when we arrived and within 15 mins we had arrived to be greeted by Richard. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable. Everything you require for self catering was there including a few basics milk bread etc. Fabulous views across the city. Didn't really need a car as the bus stop is just a few minutes away and the 123 bus route gets you to Valletta bus station within 20mins enabling connections to anywhere on the island. Added bonus for us was the Malta air show which was on the first weekend of our stay so with the uninterrupted views from the balcony we had the perfect vantage point. Well worth the money for our weeks stay with Richard close to hand when required.

Nice apartment in a quiet residential area.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, well furnished and spacious (by European standards) apartment. Richard was a splendid host who responded quickly to the very few issues we had (e.g., lost luggage, flat tire). Like all the Maltese people we encountered during our stay, Richard was always pleasant and helpful.

We opted for the car rental and airport pickup/dropoff service, since the apartment was off the beaten track on the outer part of Msida. We took the public minibus to Valletta a couple of times, since the stop is a 2-minute walk from the apartment and parking in Valletta is scarce (as it is in Sliema and the three-cities area). Otherwise, we made good use of the rental car for longer trips, especially to visit the many interesting places around Malta. I'd recommend this add-on package ... good value. Just be aware that, if like us you're coming to Malta from North America, you'll be driving on the left side of the road in a right hand drive vehicle. Lots of UK style roundabouts, which I liked in comparison to the North American traffic light system ... roundabouts let you get where you're going faster and with less hassle.

And don't believe the nonsense about Maltese drivers. They're no worse that what you'll encounter in Paris, Rome, London or any other high density location, Personally, I found them to be excellent drivers, and I didn't encounter any problems in the 3 weeks we took to get around all of Malta.

Although the apartment is in a residential area, there's a convenience store right next door, and other general stores and a pharmacy within reasonable walking distance. Also a small pub within a couple of blocks.

Terrific for a first visit

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our first visit to Malta. Everything was as described and the apartment was well equipped, even down to the washing machine. The apartment was spotlessly clean and generally well maintained. The crockery and cutlery could have been better but were adequate for our needs. The bed was rather firm but we did sleep well, however the sheets and bedding could have been improved. The mattress cover was too small for the actual mattress. The host Richard was obliging and gave some perfect recommendations re sight seeing and restaurants, nothing was too much trouble. The car we hired as part of the package and the taxi transfers were great. We would recommend this apartment for a couple possibly with one child. Wifi worked very well. Would recommend a trip to Gozo and Barracuda and Ta Marija restaurants and the Neolithic sites.

A very enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

I have to admit that after booking this property I thought I had made a mistake. That was purely because of the location a little bit away from Valletta and Sliema. However as soon as I got used to the driving I realised that the location is excellent for travelling all over Malta and it is very easy to get anywhere. The apartment itself is pretty much as described and has everything you need. The terrace is huge and has a great view. 90% of the time we were there was spent on that terrace. The bed was comfortable, shower strong and neighbourhood very quiet. The shop downstairs is very handy for fresh bread. I found it an ideal stay if you like a tranquil base for exploring the island. For me car hire is a must and the package, including transfer from the airport and satnav, provided by the very amiable owner is good value.
