Beautiful Maltese house in the heart of the local community

  • 5 of 5

The house owner, Saviour, collected us from the airport and gave us a brief guide of the area before introducing us to his lovely home.

The house is very grand, better than the pictures. The pool is completely private and very welcome in the summer months.

Little shops within walking distance where you get freshly baked bread daily plus other essentials.

I didn't get a car,not sure where you would park but buses plentiful , cheap, clean, air condititoned and plenty of bus stops near by.

Would recommend for families as plenty of space.

Wonderful house, location not ideal

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely house to stay in. The entrance hall which doubles as a living room is like a medieval banquet hall with really high ceilings. The house goes on and on and on as you go upwards with several balconies, ideal for having an evening cocktail. The four bedrooms were all spacious. The master bedroom is somewhat unusual with the bath, toilet and shower as part of the bedroom i.e. no partition separating them. A fascinating feature is the underground air-raid bunker!

The host, Saviour, was very helpful and friendly. The electricity blew one evening owing to a fault with the fridge. Someone came within less than half an hour and got the power back (minus the fridge). The following morning a replacement fridge was supplied. We all understand things can go wrong, in this case the reaction to fix the problem was very good and our inconvenience was minimised.

The location in the suburb of Qormi was not great, but that should have been clear to me from looking at the map, so no real complaints there. However, on-street parking is a drag and I often had to drive around for some time to find a parking space. Although we never used the buses, I understand they are very good and you might well be better off not hiring a car if staying here.

A couple of suggestions. A previous reviewer suggested putting in an electric kettle. I agree. Boiling a kettle on the gas hob can be wasteful as you can forget that it is on and it continues to boil away. The €20 investment would be paid back very quickly. The host should provide enough refuse bags to cover the time the guests are there (refuse is collected six days a week). Also a bottle of washing up liquid would encourage the guests to clean up.

Overall very positive.

A very nice property. BUT...

  • 3 of 5

This is not a bad property, BUT... there are certain things any decent holiday home renter ought to know about it.

I did get off on the wrong footing with the owner, due to his lack of response to me particularly when our arrival date was only days away.

The Owner did meet us at the property, but I feel our prior issues led to a certain coolness!

RULES. There are Rules about Rules all over the property, which I found offensive to say the least. "Don't do this; Don't do that"! Most notably there is a Pool, and there is SUN, yet there is a Rule that NO sun creams/oils etc are to be used around and or in the Pool! So you are expected to leave yourself and more worringly any children to just bake in the pool with NO protection from the sun. We obeyed the house Rules and refrained from using the pool.

Annoying Things:-

1) LACK of parking. 1 hour to park our car, and 1 km away!

2) We were NOT made aware of the fact that because we were a small group (3) some of the property as ADVERTISED to us, was closed off to us. (most offensive)

3) My wife and child were cold in the property at night, probably owing to the extremly high ceiling and the property being of Stone/Brick construction. There was NO means of heating the property. There was a small fireplace in the living room, appeared to be workable but also appeared to be for decorative purposes ONLY, as there is another "Rule" "NO FIRES" which unbelievably included and prevented the use of candles!

4) I informed the Owner and he couldn't understand this "Cold" issue but in fairness he said that he would arrange for a Gas heater to be delivered. (Which was and on the same day)

5) Gas heater delivered by a fiesty lady. She insisted that we were responsible for the heater on numerous occasions, then asked "Do you really want it now that you are responsible for it" whatever she meant by this we still don't know, as the Cool evenings were still an issue!

6) This lady proceeded to go upstairs (To show us how to work the washing machine) and proceeded to turn OFF any lights which we had left "on" in the building, and making gestures as she did. we honestly felt like bold children on a school tour with a grumpy teacher!

7) Finally there is NO electric Kettle in this property!! There is NO hairdryer in this property!! These are things I have never known to be missing from any other property we have rented over the past 25 years!! I could go on...! I liked it, but my wife and child hated it! honestly!

Owner's Response: First 3 star review I received in 10 years of renting this house, Thought I was going to receive some negative comments from this man from the very first email I received from him and I was right. Good tastes are not for everybody to appreciate I'm afraid! I am not going to make a reply for this review by doing a whole composition and annoying all future guests so I am most certain that prospective guests will make a judgement after taking a look at the other reviews we have for this property Surely if it was me making these negative comments I wouldn't even give a one star imagine a 3 star.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am disappointed that I found the house upon cleaning in a very bad state. I tried to make your stay at our house as pleasant as possibile and your review confirms this however upon cleaning the house we found out that you and the rest of your group has left it in a very sorry state. I am informed that you also brought in on occasions visitors sleeping in the house so you broke a principal house rule. 6 large bags of garbage left in the house is unacceptable. I try as a host to make the perfect stay and then when I have a group that does not care really makes me sad

I am a writer from Sweden and stayed 6 weeks in this beautiful home.

It was a stay of mixed work & pleasure.

The house is very tasteful decorated. huge and you feel wings of history.

It have everything you could possible need – even a pool which I used a lot. You simply get a royal feeling when you stay here!

Between one to five starts… I just havet o give 10 stars !!

The aerea is very nice and safe. Traditional bars where you get a good wine for very small money – and you easily get in contact wih people here.

It is just a short walk to busstops and bus leaves frequentlty to Valletta and it is easy going by bus round the whole island and also to Gozo.

Small groceryshops close, a bakery just outside for fresh morningbread – and the big PAVI store is in walkingdistance.. here you can buy everything and they have free deliveryservice.

Best of all was the houseowner /host. I was able to call him anytime – and he was alays in a best mood and ready to give a helping hand.. no matter what !! I was really inpressed. I give also him and his wife 10 points out of 5 possible !! They took the word service to a new level

My stay was perfect !! The house, aerea and host made magic happend. And I know for sure I will be back.
