“A perfect place to spend your vacation” This apartment was exactly what we were looking for in Malta. The two bedrooms, glass sliding doors and balcony gave it a feeling of spaciousness. The view of St. Paul's Bay from the balcony was beautiful, day and night. It was the perfect setting for breakfast coffee to wine time in the evening. The apartment provided all the necessities to have some meals in. There were restaurants and a grocery store within easy walking distance and many more a short bus ride away. The bus stop is right outside the front door and we used it often to get around the island. A bus pass can be purchased that allows unlimited travel for 7 days. The apartment was very clean and the view soothing. Ruth and Neville could not have been easier to work with. Before we arrived they answered every email promptly and patiently and were even more helpful when we arrived. They made arrangements for our transport from and later back to the airport, advised us on what to see in Malta and even booked tours for us. Thanks to Ruth and Neville, their lovely apartment and the beautiful country of Malta, this was the perfect place for us to spend our vacation.
“Huge apartment in perfect location” This was a brilliant place to stay for a holiday in Malta.
The apartment was huge. From the street entrance it was two floors up and there was a lift. The apartment opened in to a long hallway. There were three large bedrooms off this. The master bedroom bigger than some apartments we've stayed in, and it had an en-suite bathroom. There was plenty of storage so all the luggage was out if sight for the whole week.
There was a shower room, complete with washing machine, and a very large kitchen containing everything needed to self-cater. The end of the hallway opened on to a large living and dining area. This was a very spacious light room, as there were two sets of patio doors that opened on to the south facing balcony. It was a quiet apartment as there is no traffic at the front.
The view from the balcony over Spinola Bay was beautiful at all times of the day. Even in February we were able to sit with a drink and read watching what was going on. As the apartment is on a hill is it higher at the front, looking over the bay, than at the back where you enter from the street.
The location is great too. There were food and drink shops within 5 minutes walk, and countless restaurants and bars very close by. Cuba, at the end of the street overlooking the bay, became a favourite and was excellent for the 2 for 1 cocktails during Happy Hour.
We travelled to several places by bus during our week. The bus stops are also within 5 minutes walk of the apartment and travel is just €1.50 per day! We had one rainy day (not bad for the time of year) and spent it being lazy, and going to the cinema in St Julians, probably 15-20 minutes walk away at the most. The cinema prices were very cheap.
We had a couple of problems during out stay and on both occasions Albert sorted them out for us immediately. There was no DVD player, and when he realised it had been moved he brought another one round (we stayed in after our evening meals as the apartment was so comfortable). On another occasion the electricity went off. This was caused by a problem with the en-suite water heater. Again Albert sorted the electricity out and was arranging for a plumber to attend. This was not a problem as there was another shower room.
The apartment and location made the holiday and I would definitely return.
“most welcoming friendly village where the villa is located” the villa was spotless the photo's do not do it justice everything is ether half an hour on a bus or five min was from the villa
the restaurants in the local village where excellent we did not have one bad meal and they were all very child friendly
“Great - will book again” Been many times on holiday to Malta and have to say that this is probably the best and certainly the most pleasant accommodations for the price that I've experienced. Well equipped with everything you'd need, a friendly shop nearby and restaurants within walking, not to mention life on the balcony with the spectacular view and of course, not forgetting the occasional and hilarious interruption from the local rooster that's crock is not quite all there! Will definitely book again and thanks for everything!
“No title could do justice...” No title could do justice to the experience of staying here.
Pauline was a great host; helpful, on hand when needed yet unintrusive. She gave local recommendations when asked for and was a breeze to communicate and organise with. It is hard to appreciate a good host until one experiences to the contrary, but we were in very good hands from start to finish.
The farmhouse itself is beautiful, quite classically decorated and the rooms are well-appointed.
If you're reading this then I'm guessing you want to know whether or not you want to stay here. Here are some things which may help.
Highlights (for us):
- the gas BBQ & grill on the patio
- the incredible view, including sunrise from the balcony.
- the location is so peaceful but so connected for when you want (see below). No disturbances.
- within hazy-stumbling distance of Xaghra Square (honestly 7, straight-line minutes), Ramla Bay (20) and some really old ancient things (10).
- air conditioning
- spacious, not just in sleeping capacity but also in living areas i.e. kitchen and living room. It can entertain as many as it can sleep.
- Gozo transport is incredibly cheap, efficient and good quality.
- the local community are warm, good-humoured and friendly.
Some things to be prepared for:
- mosquitos will have a go, unless the farmhouse is since equipped with nets, guards or working deterrents.
- that's about it.
In case it's helpful - we're in our mid-twenties. We saw mostly older families/friends here (and not overrun with tourists in May/June). We found Gozo & Malta neither too quiet nor too hectic, and with plenty of room for either extreme if you so desire. Take a good book for the poolside and go clubbing in La Grotta on Friday night/morning.
Gozo is beautiful. You should go. Just leave room for us.
“fantastic farmhouse.” stayed at farmhouse in gharb,very peaceful .beautiful rustic building 4 lovely bedrooms ,cool courtyard to cool down from the hot sun. stunning pool and baby pool. plenty sun loungers .wi-fi in the living room all rounded off with a good well equipped kitchen.. stunning beach at ramla bay. and a lovely small town called xlendi filled with fish and steak restuarants all nestled in a secluded bay. victoria is the main shopping area only 10 mins away on the bus which is very cheap.the crossing on the ferry was also very nice from malta only 25 mins would highly recomend this property ,if you want a relaxing holiday on the gorgeous island of gozo.
“Truly Amazing- would recommend to anyone!” My family and I stayed at Villa Elma for two weeks and what a brilliant two weeks they were! On arrival to the property, we were greeted by the host who showed us around the accomodation and gave us additional information such as local restaurants, taxi services and when the cleaners/pool man would visit- something which we found very useful!
The accomodation was beautifully modern and very spacious/open-plan, a feature that's great for a large number of people. The kitchen was large and had all the utensils and tools we needed to prepare and cook meals- big cooker/microwave/dishwasher/coffee machine/kettle. This flowed into the dining room and then into a cosy lounge with an L-shaped settee and a large TV with DVD player. Opposite this was a wall of glass windows and doors that led to the indoor pool- a really nice feature!
The bedrooms were extremely spacious with plenty of storage, large beds and air conditioning units, something which we definitely needed! As an aside, speakers were routed throughout the rooms so music could be played to them via the tablet in the kitchen. The entirety of the villa was unbelievably clean and had a very homey feel to it.
The lights were controlled by motion sensored switches and could also be turned on/off by an iPad mounted on the wall, which we found was really cool!
The outside was roomy and got practically an entire day of sunshine- as south facing as they come! There was however, outside seating that was located in the shade for people who didn't wish to sit in the sun. The pool was very big and the perfect depth for all ages- it got very hot during the day which was lovely! The outside speakers also placed music from either the radio or a docking station- an extra luxury we were not expecting!
All in all, the villa was beautiful and Franco was very attentive and friendly to any issues or questions that we had. What made it extra special was the attention to detail and extra touches that made our visit that bit better- a stocked fridge, plenty of towels, toilet rolls, complimentary shampoo/soap, a cleaner to change towels and someone to clean the pool once a week.
My family and I would recommend absolutely anybody to this property, as the villa was faultless, the host welcoming and friendly as well as the nearest town (Naxxar) only a ten-minute walk away with plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops.
It was a wonderful visit and we'd stay here again anytime!
“Perfect location with amazing sea views” Apartment is excellent, fantastic sea view location. It is close to all restaurants and to the bus stop, there is washing machine, tumble dryer and everything you may need. Kitchen is well equipped and Jo Ann (owner) is very nice, friendly and professional. Overall great holiday in a great place I would recommend for any couple.
“Oh so comfortable villa - and that pool!” A wonderful, private and oh so comfortable villa - and that pool!
We enjoyed 8 days of peace, quiet and comfort staying in Ta Berta in Sannat. The welcoming Sam and Michelle have created a fantastic home away from home. Thank you for everything. You guys are the best!
“Excellent Value in Balluta Bay” exactly as advertised. The owner's conduct in business is clear cut and immediate, making it a state of the art transaction with no problem at all. Best location by and yet so close to balluta bay, 100m to bus stop from which one can go through the whole of malta.
Excellent level of infrastructure, facilities. One of the best sleeps during my travels (bed matress and feel)
Only downsides: -linen have started to wear off,would be much more nice if they were newer -when it is very windy something above and outside the apt makes a repeated noise.
Overall:An excellent choice with high value added, we enjoyed to the highest extent.
TKS Graham, hope we book again in Easter!
Explore the island and villas in Malta, there is so much to see and do it makes a fantastic holiday destination. Wander around the capital Valletta, peruse the delights of colourful Marsaxlokk and its famous Sunday market; visit the medieval 'silent city' of Medina for breathtaking views or unwind at one of the many spas on the island. Malta as a whole has a fabulous history starting with the oldest neolithic temples in the world, the fascinating siege of the 16th century when the Knights held the island against the might of the Ottoman Empire, and more recently their heroic stand during the Second World War. The island of Malta has been dubbed the Mediterranean’s ‘mini-Hollywood’ by The Times, as it is becoming one of the world’s most popular film and television locations.Popular Searches : Villas in Spain | Holiday Cottages | Villas in Portugal | Algarve Villas | Tuscany Villas

HOLIDAY APARTMENT IN ST PAUL’S BAY CARSONS COURT F2 ST PAUL'S STREET SPB.MALTA
Perfect holiday in lovely Malta
A big thank you to the landlord Edwin, had a fantastic stay in a lovely apartment, with a beautiful view.

Thank you again Edwin for being such a friendly helpful host, for staying at your lovely clean apartment. …

Amazing 4-bedroom 4-bathroom Villa Blu
We were a group of ten people (8 adults and 2 children) staying at the Villa for 3 nights.
We had a beautiful stay as the Villa is really as shown in the pictures and carefully described in the informations.
We couldn’t use the outdoor swimming pool as the temperature outside was warm but not enough to get in!
But we took advantage of the indoor jacuzzi (I think it’s 5 meters long!!!) every night.
The Villa is perfect, the neighborhood is very quiet and we couldn’t ask for more.
In addition, Victoria, who welcomed us at the check-in, was really helpful. She stayed with us for more than 1 hour in order to explain everything about the Villa to us and to answer to all our questions. She always answered immediately by WhatsApp to our requests during our stay and she was able to suggest some beautiful spots to visit (5 stars to her!!!;-))
She allowed us to check out later the day we left as they hadn’t other immediate reservations.
I would certainly recommend the Villa to everyone, families or group of friends …
Very nice and helpful owner Paul.
He brought our group from the airport
Paul gave us all practical information about public transport, directions to Valetta, etc.
Apartment in a great location
I will definitely come back …
Modern Cosy 2bedroom apartment
Totally perfect, wonderful owners and wonderful apartment
From booking to leaving this holiday was wonderful. Alison was very helpful and informative, and when we arrived at the airport, her husband was there to meet us. He drove us to the apatment, giving us lots of information as we went, and we dropped our cases to the accomodation, and he then drove us round, showing us the town and took us to a lovely viewing point. When we got back to the apartment, it was superbly clean and there was everything we needed. Even wine, beer, milk, coffee, tea etc, which was a wonderful touch. We were able to pull open the doors and enjoy a drink and relax.
The apartment is very well situated for the town, the bus stops and restaurants. There is a supermarket just up the road, well equipped for whats needed and well stocked with wine !
The town itself is lovely, plenty of lovely restaurants serving great food, and lovely little bakers, serving traditional maltese food,
We got buses round the island, which run frequently and are very reasonable.
We had a couple of bad days weather, but it didn't stop us having a great time. Parked up in a cafe and played cards. And went back to enjoy the apartment.
We got a lift back to the aiport, and once again Alisons husband went out of his way to drive us to a beautiful spot en route, so we could take photos and enjoy the view.
I cannot fault anything about this holiday. The owners were wonderful, with a very well equipped, modern, clean apartment. I would have no hesitation in returning, and would recommend this to anyone.
Perfect !!! …
Luxury house of character "Shangri-La" in Manikata/Mellieha
Perfect place to relax
This old house has been turned into a great comfort zone. The owners used to live there before and you never feel like you stay in a holiday rental. You can easily spend your days on the sofas or the terrace. We’d love to come again! …
