Pictures do not do this place justice!
I stayed here with 2 friends and this apartment was big, clean and all around wonderful. We spent the majority of our time outside on the two terraces (one with plunge pool) and made a lot of meals in apartment. The kitchen has everything you need as well as a dishwasher which makes cleaning up a breeze. There are shops and restaurants close by so you can easily make your own food or go out for a quick meal.
There are loads of beaches within a few minutes walk - so many that we barely left Marsaskala. It is a great area and seems far less touristy than Valletta. After getting back from the beach or any excursion, you can toss your towels and clothes into the washer and dry them on the drying rack on the terrace in no time.
The rooms were clean and cool (each with their own AC unit) which is helpful as the weather gets warm. There is plenty of storage and privacy in this big apartment.
The views from the apartment of Marsaskala harbor are stunning! We had nearly all meals outside on the terrace enjoying the view - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sunsets over the harbor are simply beautiful!
Long story short, this apartment is a GREAT choice. The owner is extremely kind and answered all our questions while giving suggestions of things to do nearby. We will definitely be back here again.
Very good apartment
Very well maintained apartment and walking distance to restaurants. Host was there to meet us on arrival and all worked well. Owner very helpful during our stay. Recommended.
Great view, comfortable beds and great air con. Perfect.
A fabulous spot - we loved it
This penthouse was the perfect base for our vacation on Malta. The description was accurate, the house, the two terraces and the pool were clean, and the facilities were great. The aircondition worked very well.
We enjoyed the wiev over the small harbour and spent hours on the rooftop relaxing in the sun. The Mediterranean is only twenty steps away and is perfect for a swim.
Easy to get in touch with the owners who were very helpfull regarding to answering our questions in preparing our vacation. We had a very warm welcoming and the owner had bought us beverage, fruit and bread.
We would like to return to this place some day and can recommend it if you want a relaxing vacation in a local place.
We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay and that you loved the property and location. We thank you for your comments and look forward to hosting you again in one of our properties.
My family and I spent a fantastic week in The Penthouse Apartment. The views are wonderful, and so relaxing. The pool was a winner with our young people. We had a lovely meal in Eduardos (upstairs), in Marsaskala, and at the beach restaurant one evening at St Thomas bay. Our son went scuba diving at Dive Med and had a great time. Having hired a car we Idid all the main tourist sites including Gozo. We have stayed in Malta previously but this was the best by far. We would love to return!
Dear Kevin, We thank you for you comments. We are glad that you and your family have enjoyed your stay, the penthouse and the views and we are delighted that your stay at our property was your best experience by far. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family and we look forward to hosting you again in your next visit to Malta.
This lovely penthouse apartment was exactly as it appeared on the website. It was roomy inside and outside and offered privacy and all the facilities you could want when self catering. We spent a lot of time on the terraces and made good use of the plunge pool and barbecue. The view from the terrace over the harbour is really lovely and the village of Marsascala has a range of restaurants and local shops to meet all daily needs. The bus stop is close by as is a good sized supermarket. The owners were more than helpful both during the booking process and on arrival and departure. Very nice people to deal with and a really relaxing holiday in a beautiful location.
We thank you for your lovely comments. We are glad that you have enjoyed the property, it's facilities, the location and the surroundings. We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you once more in one of our properties in the near future.
The rocky beach and the promenade are just a few paces away. The sandy beach is at a walking distance and just 2 minutes away by car (10 minutes walk). There are a number of beautiful swimming spots along the Marsascala coast, as well as close-by. In Marsascala, you can enjoy diving, since there are wrecks in the Marsascala waters and there is a professional diving school close-by, which offers courses both for beginners and for professionals.
It would be helpful to have a car in order to reach most of the island, however buses are also a cheap way for visiting the island. The bus stop is a few paces away, while Marsascala terminal is at a short walking distance.
