About Josette Mamo

I have always lived in Malta and my parents have been in the holiday rental accommodation business before me. But since my Dad was growing old, I gladly took over the reservation business myself about 12 years ago. All my life, I have grown up mingling with tourists who frequented my Dad's seafront holiday apartments and many times he brought them over to our house for a family dinner, as most of our clients ended up becoming his friends as well. I also remember him taking his clients to see interesting historical places in Malta, and I accompanied him on many of these tours. So I was happy to take over the business myself when the time was ripe.

Josette Mamo purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Josette Mamo chose Qawra

My father passed down this unique seafront land to myself and my 2 brothers upon his retirement. I have frequented Bugibba myself many, many times both as a child and as I grew up, and I have even spend many summers in one of my Dad's holiday apartments in the past.

What makes this apartment unique

I must admit that I am very happy to be the proud owner of such a luxury apartment with outstanding, panoramic seaviews. The 35 meter long seafront terrace with its outdoor table and chairs, and 2 sunbeds makes it such a desirable place. We are so centrally located, and within walking distance to all that Bugibba has to offer. The beach and the 2 km Bugibba Seafront Promenade is right on our doorstep. What more would you ask for !!! It is one unique place.

wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed, the view was just amazing!!! It is well situated having the promenade opposite and lots of shops and Vinnie's (a great place to eat) next to it. It is also within easy walking distance of Buggiba square which has lots to offer.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to others and hopefully return ourselves.

The apartment was spacious and well equipped to a very high standard and the views were magnificent! Loads of restaurants and shops just a short walk away which offered a wide variety of goods and cuisine with very generous portions. The owners were friendly and helpful and helped make our stay one to remember. Would go back again in a heartbeat!

An absolutely superb luxury apartment

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed this apartment so much. It was spotlessly clean throughout, and best views over St Paul's Bay from a massive balcony and the large picture windows, excellent position for all local amenities. Internally is very spacious with a fully fitted kitchen and equipped with everything you need, 3 double sized bedrooms all with lots of storage space and access to the balcony, a large bathroom with jacuzzi bath and washer/ dryer plus an en suite shower room, there is also wifi connection. From first contact Josette, the owner, was very friendly and always replied quickly to emails and always on hand if needed. We would highly recommend this luxury apartment and will return. Thank you Josette for us letting stay in your lovely apartment and the airport transfers, we will defiantly stay again.
