About Sarah Saliba

We have lived in St Julians for the past 4 years now. I am a Lecturer and my wife Sarah is a Nurse and we have twin boys, Matthew and Luke, aged 8.

We have been hosting guests and English students since the very 1st day we moved in 5 years ago.

We are a close knit family, we enjoy outdoor activities together, travelling when we can, swimming and spending what time we do have doing things as a family.

Sarah Saliba purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Sarah Saliba chose Malta

We bought this property because we loved the location, the size and what the property has to offer. We are located in a peaceful location yet minutes away from St Julian’s and Sliema.

We bought this property in 2010 in shell form meaning we had to do all the internal works i.e. water and electricity, plastering, painting, tile laying and furnishing. It took us one year to finish this property and we are still till this day finishing the finishing touches to our property.

We called our home 'Tranquillity' as it is in such a quiet location and very peaceful.

What makes this apartment unique

If you decide to stay with us the benefits of doing so are numerous. The property is fully and newly furnished making your stay with us a comfortable one.

Malta can be a condensed place to stay but being located in the Valley there are no properties on the opposite side, just the valley. With plenty of open space and fresh air your stay will be a relaxing one.

Bottled water for the duration of your stay, welcome pack (bottle of wine and Maltese sweets) airport transfers, wi-fi internet access, linen, bath towels, maid service, utility costs and cleaning of the apartment are all included in the price. No hidden charges.

We live on site so if you have any requirements or need help we are always here for you and we always do our best to accommodate the needs of our guests

Highly Recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

My partner & I had a wonderful one week stay at this apartment!

Mark and Sarah were great hosts, they were extremely helpful throughout our whole stay, from the very moment we arrived.

The 2 bedroom apartment itself is very nice and clean, with a well equipped kitchen which was perfect for us as we wanted to make the most of preparing our own meals during our stay.

What we really liked was that you have the option to choose items for breakfast. We went for the continental so we had food restocked in the fridge/cupboard every day.

As other guests have mentioned, the apartment itself is situated in a quiet area, yet you can take such a short walk that will bring you to Spinola Bay and St Julian's.

We really couldn't of asked for more. If you're reading this review as you're considering staying here, we extremely recommend it... You won't be disappointed! :)

Great apartment, Great location, Great family

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal apartment for so many! There was 6 in our group (3 Generations) and the apartment was spacious, very clean, well equipped (Air conditioning was very welcoming). Mark and Sarah (and the boys) couldn't do enough for us. The location is ideal. Close enough to walk to restaurants and the sea front, but far enough to be quiet when you want it. It is also very close to the main routes when you want to sightsee. We are looking to book for 2017 as we write this review. That's the test - would you come back and the answer is a simple "Yes, anytime".

A perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment this holiday was booked we had great communication from the owner Mark. On arrival we were met at the airport despite being two hours late. We were a group four ladies attending a wedding. On the way to the property we were given a tour so that we could get our bearings. Then when we arrived we were overwhelmed by not only the apt but the extra things that had been supplied. Water, wine, crisps, milk, tea, coffee, cakes and all you could need. Honestly we were bowled over. The apt was beautiful. And the beds and pillows made for a good nights sleep. As for the breakfast....delicious is all I can say. A great choice offered. The location was perfect. Close to all amenities but in a quiet location. A bit of a walk but nothing too much. And we are all in our 50's. Finally when we said we would do our own breakfast the day after the wedding all we could need was placed in the fridge. Fantastic! Its also worth noting that water and toilet rolls were constantly replenished.

If you are looking to stay in Malta I can't recommend this enough. A beautiful family providing the best for their guests.

A great big thank you Mark, Sarah, Matthew and Luke. We will make sure we come back. Loved every minute.

Lovely family, very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was spotless and well maintained. Mark and Sarah were very friendly and accommodating and went out of there way to tend to our needs. Ideal location as it was only a five minute walk to Spinola bay, where there is a bus stop with an excellent service to get you around the island which we took full advantage of. The apartment has every facility you need just like a home from home including cooking utensils. I would defiantly stop there again and recommend this apartment to others.

Perfect Stay in the Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which was tastefully renovated and in beautiful shape. The bathroom was clean, modern and had good hot water pressure. The kitchen was well stocked, as was the rest of the apartment. The hosts were lovely and provided any information that we needed.

The real icing on the cake, were the extra perks provided by the lovely hosts. Upon arrival there was bottled water (which was replenished), a welcome bottle of wine, and fresh fruit on the table. They provide a multitude of choices for your breakfast, including fresh chocolate croissants! Every few days they refreshed the towels, and they even let us do a load of laundry during our stay.

There was air conditioning (which we didn't need to use in May) as well as fast, reliable wifi.

The location was easily walkable down to the Spinola Bay area, or with a bit further of a walk (about 15-20 minutes) to the beach area at St. George's Bay.

We would highly recommend this apartment and would stay again when we return to Malta.

Owner's Response: Thank you guys for such a wonderful review it was pleasure having you both. There are many nicer properties on the island I am sure but we do our utmost to make whoever stays with us an enjoyable one. I am glad we were of assistance when required and the bottled water, fruit, wine etc are just part of the service when guests stay with us, I am always trying to find ways of improving the service we provide. I hope we have the opportunity of one day returning to Canada and if we do we will be sure to look you up just as you are more than welcome to stay with us. Again in the future, many thanks again for a wonderful review.

A wonderful friendly first visit to Malta

  • 5 of 5

A very well maintained property, clean, regularly serviced, comfortable bed with all necessary mod cons and more. Owners extremely friendly on hand if required, providing lots of information about Malta. Our breakfasts were amazing, great selection, well prepared with a personal touch. A very pleasant easy walk into the main part of St. Julian's from the house. St. Julian's the best area in Malta, great shops, restaurants and waterfront. The Feast of St. Julian's a highlight of our visit a great celebration. Overall the service was far beyond expectations and the accommodation lived up to its name by being very quite and restful. Highly recommended.
