About the property

Luxurious, tranquil and homely 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom exquisitely designed home

Beautifully designed and furnished duplex penthouse, on 2 floors, providing privacy and independence for 2 couples or large family/group of friends while within the same apartment. The lower floor offers a large and sunny bedroom, bathroom, comfortable and well equipped open plan kitchen/living/dining area; a small terrace with 2 chairs and coffee table compliments this welcoming level while overlooking the fantastic views of St. Paul's Island and St. Paul's Bay. The spiral staircase to the upper floor is located adjacent to the kitchen; here you are greeted by a large lounge area with sofabed (which can sleep a further 2 people), and sofa for relaxation, and a sizable patio terrace for entertainment with deckchairs, table, chairs and barbeque - a great place to feast your nights away while taking in the views. This floor also offers another large double bedroom and bathroom.

The apartment also offers private elevator entrance for added comfort and exclusivity. A true gem.

St. Paul's Bay and its surrounding areas: The coastline in the St., Paul's Bay area has some wonderful open sea views and a vista across to St Paul's Island, where, according to legend, the ship carrying the Apostle is said to have been wrecked. Standing prominently on the isle is a large statue of the Apostle commemorating this legendary event. The coastline promenade provides a long, though mostly level and easy walk from St Paul's Bay all the way to Qawra Point, with its tower and views over Salina Bay. St Paul's Bay started life as a small fishing village and one can still see these going out to sea in the early hours. The parish church, built in 1617, was carefully restored after suffering heavy damage in World War II. Nearby is the Wignacourt Tower built in 1610 during the reign of Grand Master Alof de Wignacourt. It served as Malta's northern-most defensive outpost until fort St. Agatha was built in Mellieha in 1649. Today, it houses a small museum dedicated to Malta's rich military-architectural heritage.

St. Paul’s Bay is located on the North East coast of Malta and is the largest resort on the north of Malta, 15kms from Valletta. The old town of St. Paul’s Bay has extended to the south and engulfed the popular tourist areas of Bugibba and the newer resort of Qawra. This is a large and popular tourist area and part of neighbouring resorts, stretching for 5km along St. Paul’s Bay, around Qawra Point and into Salina Bay. A picturesque resort with good attractions and easy access to some of Malta's finest scenery and best rocky beaches. This is traditionally Malta's largest summer resort and can be split into four areas of contrasting age and amenities - Xemxija, Bugibba, Qawra and the Old Town. Of the group, Bugibba, is the largest resort in the area, with good views of St Paul’s Bay and its islands. Proving its popularity, Bugibba has the liveliest nightlife, a cinema, bingo hall and even a casino, however St.. Paul's Bay still offers the best views and the quieter side of life.

Almost the entire foreshore is rocky, In many locations the rocks are flat and suitable for sunbathing

There are 3 small harbours along the sea front either in the old town area of St Paul's bay or in Bugibba

Swimming and snorkeling is popular from the rocks. The entire area is great for water sports. There is a small beach at the head of St Pauls Bay, the rest is rocky. The nearest large sandy beaches are about 8km away at Mellieha Bay and further away in Golden Bay. There is a regular bus route to these beaches from St Pauls Bay. Next door is Bugibba which is the main hub of activity at night in the area, but te old town St. Paul’s Bay has a selection of quieter bars and cafes. Some of the hotels in this area also have their own nightclubs and special nights of entertainment. The area is well covered with tourist cafés and restaurants whilst more sophisticated dining can be found at Old St. Paul's Bay.

great location for a self catering stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in Aqua 2 weeks in march it is situated what must be described as a first class location with great views, this property is situated close to all food shops restaurant's and most of all very close to the Main Bus Terminal with connections to most of the Island,

We had a great time visiting most of the Island with a trip to Gozo that is a must visit for anyone coming to malta,

The one down side to our stay was we felt the Property is in need of

some updating to make guests stay more comfortable , the lift that exits into the Flat we found was very draughty and we could hear the other tenants conversations, in the hallways

In Conclusion we must say that in our opinion the apartment is more a SUMMER let ,April to October not the weeks we stayed,the owners are very accommodating and helpfull

Beautiful view of St Paul's Bay

  • 4 of 5

The property is comfortable, spacious and well situated on the waterfront of St Paul's Bay just around the corner from the main shopping area. The photos are accurate and the views are superb. It is some distance from Sliema and Valletta, but great if you want a quiet location but within walking distance to local shops, good restaurants and cafes. It os also closer to the ferry to Gozo at the North end of Malta. The decks on both levels allow full enjoyment of the views although the weather was not great during our stay. There were a couple of minor maintenance issues in the Apartment but Paul and Josanne dealt with these very promptly. The Apartment is also on the local bus route. We had intended hiring a car, but purchased a couple of 7-day 'Explore' bus passes at the Airport on arrival for 21 EURO each. You can see most of the main attractions on Malta and the neighbouring Island of Gozo on this card, although we did use the Hop-on/Hop-off Bus on Gozo for a day. Overall a very pleasant stay and we would come back again.

Ordine, gentilezza e professionalità

  • 5 of 5

Appartamento con bellissima vista sulla baia di Saint Paul. I proprietari si sono mostrati gentilissimi sia nella fase di prenotazione, che al momento dell'arrivo/partenza. Pur essendo in 8 l'appartamento si è dimostrato di dimensioni perfette e abbiamo trovato tutto quello che ci serviva. Ottima posizione sia perché vicino a diverse fermate di pullman, sia perché si trova vicino ad alcune spiagge, al centro e alle vie principali (con negozi e supermercati). Lo consiglio a gruppi di ragazzi, così come a famiglie visto che la zona è tranquilla.

Grazie ancora ai proprietari per tutto!

very nice stay in Buggiba

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time in Aqua, which is a very clean, nice and convenient apartment, with a very beautiful sea view. It is located in a very quiet area, close to the bus stop, the shops and nice restaurants. Thank you to Paul for his help in the car location and the nice welcome when we arrived. We also appreciated the fact that Paul could come and fetch us at the airport. I certainly recommend this flat! M.C.Lemoine
