In January my wife and I had four lovely weeks in Malta. The apartment in Birżebuġa was exactly as described on the website and the view of St George’s Bay from the living room window and roof terrace was wonderful. Leo, the owner offered to collect us from the airport and kept in regular touch by text and e-mail. The apartment has wifi, which I don’t think is mentioned on the website.
We liked Birżebuġa and found two good bars where we were made very welcome. Restaurants are limited in Birżebuġa, but we really enjoyed the China Rose, which was close to our apartment. The owner Paul and his Manageress made us very welcome. The chefs were great and were willing to adapt Chinese dishes from the menu to suit our particular tastes.
We decided not to hire a car, but use the local bus service. This was excellent and a weekly bus pass was €12 euros. The bus ride to Valetta was only twenty minutes and it was only a ten minute ride to Marsaxlokk, where there were lots of very good restaurants. We particularly liked the food at Mr Fitz and the lovely Diane was a wonderful hostess. We even went by bus and ferry to Gozo.
About 2½ weeks into our holiday we had a problem with a water leak in the kitchen area, so our host Leo transferred us to one of his other apartments in St Julian’s. It took about week to sort out the problem, so with only a couple of days left of our holiday we decided to stay in St Julian’s. Leo also offered to take us to the airport, which was great.
This was my wife’s first visit to Malta and she absolutely loved it. Leo and his wife Alice were fantastic hosts and we will definitely be going back. …
The Waves Maisonette
This flat is centrally located, close to the harbour of the picturesque fishing village Marsaxlokk. The flat is comfortable and airy and adequately furnished and contains all mid cons. All the rooms are kept clean and the 2 bathrooms are equipped with all a visitor may require. The beds are extremely comfortable and this property represents very good value for money. Highly recommended. …
A very nice apartment, just a few minutes walk from the harbor. The location is quiet and the view is really peaceful. The apartment had everything we needed, and we especially enjoyed the big terrace doors that were able to open up all the way to let in the sunlight in the late afternoon.
Booking was easy, the Internet was excellent and checking in and out were a breeze. …
