REVIEWS FROM OTHER RENTAL SITES

"Fabulous October Holiday!!"

Couple from London, England

Stay end October/beginning November 2013

Great location and well equipped spacious flat with a pleasant interior. Cindy's transfer arrangements from Shkoder and then to the airport worked perfectly. The sunset views are really beautiful! We were there end October, fantastic weather and useful having two apartments together in the same building for rental.

"It was amazing!"

2 couples from Samara, Russia

Left on 09/24/2013 for a stay in September 2013

Thank you so much for such a fabulous holiday!

We (2 couples from Russia) stayed in this amazing beachfront apartment in September 2013. It is well-equipped with everything you could possibly need (right down to the beach umbrella), it matches the pictures and description on the internet site exactly, and the location (Mali i Robit) is very picturesque! :)

I had a lot of contact with Cindy, a very sweet Canadian (Albanian husband) who is ready to answer all your questions any time of the day! Vladimir, Cindy's father-in-law, took care of us at the apartment. Despite the name, he does not speak Russian, but he does speak a little Italian. However, do not be afraid of the language barrier, it really isn't a problem at all because everyone is so warm and friendly! In general, if you need something, ask someone young - 80% of young albanians speak English. Another suggestion is to write the name of the place you want to go on a piece of paper.

If you can drag yourself away from the apartment, it is really easy to visit Durrës. You go to the main road (400 m) and catch any minibus going north! After arriving at the main bus station, you can get a gelato, go for a walk along the waterfront, or check out the famous amphitheater etc. It is also possible to take a bus from the same road to the capital, Tirana. Everything is extremely convenient, it is easy to go anywhere from Mali i Robit.

So, if you would like to visit this wonderful country, I highly recommend staying in one of Cindy & Arjol's 2 apartments located right on the coast in the center of albania ... believe me, it is such an incredible feeling having your morning coffee at arm's length from the sea! :)

To be honest, we were so sad when it was time to leave ...

"The Best Holiday We've Ever Had!"

Family from Freiburg, Germany

Left on 09/04/2013 for a stay in August 2013

Fabulous apartment, incredible sea view and beach, friendly well-organized hosts ...

We (family of 5 - 2 adults, 3 children) stayed in arjol and Cindy's apartment the last week of august 2013. We really enjoyed our holidays in Mali i Robit! The weather was good all week, the food was delicious, the resort was fun for both adults and children, and best of all - the apartment was right on a huge sandy beach!

We were so happy when we arrived, we couldn't believe our eyes - the apartment was even better than we had expected! It was quite luxurious: beachfront (you go down the stairs, open the door, walk through a garden, and you are on the beach!), there were lovely beach decorations, duvets on all the beds, professionally-made mosquito screens (they stay up during the day so the seaview isn't blocked and then they come down at night so you can sleep with the balcony doors open), superior quality kitchen utensils and dishes, private washing machine, air conditioning, and even a large private balcony that can be accessed from the living room and the bedroom. Terrific value!

Almost every evening we went out to a restaurant for fresh seafood. It was so cheap and so good! We also tried a few albanian live music clubs. One evening, we met some nice people, danced and sang all night long, and then we all went to the beach with a bottle of wine and watched the gorgeous sunrise early in the morning. It was a great night that we will never forget!

Needless to say, we were all sad when it was time to leave and go back home.

A big thanks to arjol, Cindy, and Vladimir for all the time they spent making sure our holiday was unforgettable. See you again next year! Shefket and family

"Vacances super agréables"

Famille de Brussels, Beglum

Left on 09/23/2012 for a stay in August 2012

Nous avons passé une semaine de vacances super agréable dans cet appartement. L'appartement en lui-même est très vaste, bien équipé et également bien situé. Il faut dire que nous étions 3 adultes et 4 enfants. Nous avons pu prendre la plupart de nos repas face à la mer ce qui n'est pas du tout pour nous déplaire. Il y a beaucoup de restaurants dans les environs qui pratiquent des prix très abordables. Egalement beaucoup de petits supermarchés qui vendent tout le nécessaire, et même le superflux.

Sans oublier l'accueil bien sûr. Nous avons été accueilli de manière très sympathique et très attentionnée.

Bref, nous n'hésiterons pas à y retourner dans les années à venir.

Mali I Robit

THE TOURIST RESORT MALI I ROBIT

Mali i Robit is a beach resort town with low-rise buildings in a lovely pine forest setting. It is not far from the many restaurants, bars and shops in Durrës and Tirana.

In the high season, Mali i Robit is great for families with children because this is the part of Albania that has the large sandy beaches, lots of beach activities, and shallow water that is safe for swimming.

In the shoulder/low season Albania is quiet everywhere except Durrës and Tirana, so if you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a beachfront apartment, a bit of sightseeing, and the added bonus of great shopping and exciting nightlife nearby, Mali i Robit is the perfect place to be.

It starts getting quite hot beginning of April, so you can swim in the sea from approximately the end of April to the end of October. The resort attracts a mixture of international and Albanian tourists.

GETTING AROUND: Everything is within walking distance and there are taxis at 'Klajdi' restaurant (50 m) and shuttle buses to Durrës, Tirana, Berat etc. from the main road (400 m). You can rent a car at the airport or a rental car can be delivered to you directly at the apartment. There is private parking next to the apt.

FOOD/SHOPPING: There are food shops close to the apartment + a big supermarket 2 km away. Boutiques, big shopping centers, restaurants and bars in Durrës are open late.

RESTAURANTS: Many restaurants serve fresh, inexpensive seafood, traditional Albanian cuisine, pizza ... and dinner can also be delivered directly to you at the beach! :)

ALBANIAN MUSIC: 'Ujvara' open-air dinner/dancing club is in Mali i Robit. 'Kali i Trojan' is 3 km north.

CLUBBING: 'Tropikal' nightclub is 5 km north, and there are lots of night clubs in Durrës and Tirana.

MEDICAL ATTENTION: Clinic in town + ambulance service direct to Durrës/Tirana hospital.

"Albania is a great place to visit! stay here.....Mali i Robit"

We had a great experience in our visit to Albania and in particular Mali i Robit. Our hosts made our stay as pleasant as possible with great communication, recommendations and instructions. The condo is beachfront on a third floor (there is another one above us which has an even nicer view) with a great view of the beach and surrounding towns. The condo is exactly as seen in the pictures and was very comfortable for a family of 4. The food was great and we had most of our meals at a restaurant behind the condo "Ujvara" which we loved and had the best attention by our waiter Jetnor.
We were very pleased with our stay and would definitely come back again.
Thanks Cindy, Vladimir and Qerime

"Amazing Holidays"

Hi, I'm Maria and I spent 7 nights in Mali i Robit with my son Thanas, 7 years old. 
We tooke the privat taxi that Vladimir (Cindy's father-in-law) organized for us from the airport to the apartment, about 30 minutes. Vladimir helped us with our luggage and then showed us around the apartment and the area.
I was realy delighted because the apartment was beautiful - even better as in the pictures ! It was on the beach, the view was spectaculer and the apartment is only about 30-40 metres from the sea so you here the waves. There is also a swimming pool next to the apartment and my son was so excited !
There are a lot of 
cheap seafood restaurants and beachfront coktail bars in Mali i Robit and Durrës. Definitely plenty of things to see and do too, but Thanas was so happy with all the beach activitys and meeting new friends that he didn't want to go sightseeing.

My son and I had a very good time in Mali i Robit. We recommend Cindy's beachfront apartments !
