My husband and I just finished a delightful six-week stay in the rooftop terrace apartment. We found the two story apartment far exceeded our expectations. The property is fastidiously maintained and “eat off the floor” clean. Even by US standards the apartment is large. With the bedroom and bath on the first floor and the living area on the second floor, my husband could get up at his usual crack of dawn, have his coffee, read his paper, and not disturb my sleep. Because we pack light, the washing machine was used frequently. The internet was fast and reliable.
The second floor dining room, kitchen, living room and terrace was spacious and well appointed. We loved coming back from a day of touring Malta to a relaxing cocktail on the VERY large terrace. The hot tub was an added relaxation.
The location in the village of Birzebugga was a wonderful surprise. The bus stop is a five minute walk away and for 1.5 Euro a day we took the bus to every place on the island. In the village, there were butcher shops, green grocers, and at the end of the block a general store that delivers. Thursdays offered a nearby street market where we found fresh farm eggs and fresh produce. Within a five minute walk there were many restaurants down by the water, a beach and a lovely walking area around the harbor. We walked every Sunday to nearby Marsaslokk where there’s a shore front flea market/ fish market/farmer’s market and craft market all running parallel to the many quality restaurants.
The owner, Chris, was most helpful and accommodating. He paid attention to even the smallest detail plus always returned emails in a timely fashion.
The six-week stay enabled us to tour the numerous Malta historical sites. What a treat. We found the stay very comfortable and were sad to leave. Oh, well, there’s always next year.
