About George Debono
My name is George and I live in the locality of Zurrieq in Malta together with my wife Cynthia and our two daughters, Michela and Julia. Azure Bay Holidays is a small family run business which we have established and run jointly for the last ten years. To note that it originally was set up as GCM Holiday Apartments. How did we start? The first property making up the portfolio of Azure Bay Holidays was Ta' Kurun property in the locality of Marsascala in October 2006. After 5 years renting Ta' Kurun apartment, we bought our second property adjacent to the first one......Ta' Rosi apartment which accommodates 5 persons. We have very recently invested our energies in expanding our portfolio of apartments through the addition of two new properties: - Ta` Gakob apartment situated in Mellieha which is a quaint village in the northern part of the island surrounded by nice beaches and numerous tourist attractions; -Ta` Guli and Ta` Marron apartments both located in Marsascala and offer a chance for a relaxing holiday in comfortable surroundings; and - Ta` Kilina apartment located in Qala, Gozo which is Malta`s sister island. The apartment comes with a communal pool, children`s pool, jacuzzi and an external garden. All these facilities can be viewed from the apartment`s terrace given that all are on the same ground level. What is our motto? Our motto is to offer accommodations of good value so that this increases the entire holiday package which the lovely country of Malta has to offer to its tourists.
George Debono purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why George Debono chose Bellavista
Although it is not too far from the center, the area of Bella Vista in Marsascala is very quiet This location is minutes away from the capital city Valletta, Victoriosa, Cospicua,Senglea and Marsaxlokk. There is a direct bus service to these locations while other locations can be reached by changing buses at the airport or at Valletta. The public transport is quite efficient and relatively cheap. This property offers an escape to guests who wish to relax and enjoy a tranquil holiday away from the hassle and bustle of every day life, Sipping a glass of wine one the terraces of the apartment watching the sun rising or setting is surely a dream come true for all those who are tied up in busy schedules and stuffy offices all day long.
What makes this Apartment unique
From staying in Ta` Kurun/Ta` Rosi apartment, you will: - be within 5 minutes` walk away from the Marsascala Harbour, the beautiful promenade, the many restaurants, shops and cafeterias which surround the entire area. Within easy reach, one can enjoy the Maltese lifestyle and cuisine; - be central to the many beautiful sights of Malta e.g Ghar Dalam, Hypogeum, Mamo Tower, St. Thomas Bay, etc; - can easily have a quick dip in the cool waters of Marsascala. This is surely not to be missed; - easily commute to the northern part of the island as nowhere in Malta is really far away. The public transportation is efficient and cheap and there is a thrust in Malta to improve the overall road infrastructure; - be within 20 minutes` away from the Malta International Airport.

Lovely spacious apartment
Spent a lovely week over Easter in Marsascala. George met us at the airport and drove us to the apartment. It was clean and very spacious with a lovely roof terrace at the front and a balcony with harbour views to the rear. There were a couple of small issues that were quickly sorted out and George also got us bus travel passes for 7 days unlimited travel for 21 euros each. These are highly recommended as Malta has surely got the best public transport system in Europe. The only thing stopping me giving five stars is the access to the location of the apartment. There is a very steep hill from the town so if you don't hire a car be prepared for a tough climb home, especially if you have groceries etc. This wouldn't stop me staying there again though as the pros outweigh the cons. There are some very nice restaurants in Marsascala and if you like a cooked breakfast they are available for 5.50 euros. Check out the steaks in the evening, they are huge.
The apartment is very well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday, situated on a quiet, residential road. It is beautifully decorated and furnished. The lovely terrace is large with two loungers, a barbecue and a large outdoor dining table and chairs. We particularly enjoyed watching the sunsets and the many firework displays from there. The full width sliding doors ensure the same view from inside and, when open, allow a lovely breeze through the apartment.
I would point out that it is a steep walk uphill to get to the apartment which would be difficult if you had mobility problems.
George could not have been more helpful. Before our stay he answered all my questions quickly and fully. He collected us at the airport on arrival and returned us to the airport for departure. He was always available by email or mobile during our stay. He arranged car hire for us , including sat nav which was invaluable.
Marsaskala is a pretty town with many nice restaurants lining the harbour and a lovely promenade from where you can view the salt flats and swim from the rocks. There is a good bus service to Valletta and to Marsaxlokk which are both well worth visiting.
Enjoyed our holiday. George was extremely helpful, picked us up from the airport and dropped us off at the end of our stay. Provided a welcome pack which we appreciated as arrived after local shop had shut. The Apartment is up a very steep street so would not suit those with mobility problems. We walked to St Thomas bay- very pretty and an easy 20 minute stroll. Also went to Valletta using the bus service €2, so great value. We ate at restaurants just off the main area and these were very quiet but we got good service and value. It is a quiet fishing village so don't expect much re nightlife but that suited us.
Nice apartment and definitely worth a visit here.
Many thanks Diane for your comments. It was a pleasure hosting you!
the apartment is spacious and has amazing views of sea and countryside
The owner George was helpful - he came to meet us when we got lost on the trip from the airport - thanks George!
The chuch bells can be heard ringing from the property - it's a beautiful sou d. Overall, the property is highly recommended.
A good base to explore the island as there is a good bus service from just down the hill from the apartment. The apartment was well equipped and the the balconies front and back had excellent views. We would happily recommend it.
Holiday in Marsaskala by George was great
It was a nice stay for us in a nice appartement with a great view and a beautyful location. George was always very helpful and friendly. (It could be a little bit more proper. Thatsfore just three stars.) For all the rest we give 5 stars! Thank you for all!
Coast/Beach: 10 minutes walk to the rocky beach of Marsascala. St Thomas Bay 5 minutes drive or 20 minutes walk. Travel: Malta International Airport 12 km 5 minutes walk from the bus terminus Car hire not essential. Further Details: MARSASCALA is an ancient fishing village (often referred to as M'Scala) with its picturesque bay that lies to the south-east of Malta. The Maltese call the area WIED IL-GHAJN (wid il ajn) and many Maltese families have summer homes there. In the holiday season it is buzzing with activity, much loved by locals and visitors alike. It sprawls at the feet of two hillsides descending from Zabbar and Zejtun. Its long U-shaped coastline and beach, its rocky promontories and its multicoloured fishing vessels give it lots of character. this is enhanced by a big variety of modern leisure facilities, restaurants and bars. Marsascala Bay used to extend deep into the valley to a cave with a natural spring of fresh water where old mariners took their water before sailing. This zone used to be a haven for Roman ships during their long period of occupation.
