This is a fantastic apartment in a lovely fishing village.
We were staying when the previous guests posted a complaint about the showers. On the same day, the owner (Charlie) contacted me to apologise for the shower pressure. They had been to the apartment to investigate the problem whilst we were out and found a pump switch had been turned off in error. This just sums up how much the owner/management care about the apartment and their guests. They are on hand if required, but do not bother you if you do not need them. I also found Charlie very friendly and helpful during the booking process.
The airport transfers in a nice BMW were well worth the price and the driver (Ritianne) was lovely.
The apartment is on the second floor of a three storey residential block and there is a lift. The photo’s on the internet are exactly as we found it. It is located two blocks from the harbour (less than 5 minutes easy walk) There was a mini market on the way to the harbour that was open every day until 20:00 and sold everything that we wanted. We didn’t have a car, but there always seemed parking spaces available outside or very nearby. There is a good bus service with direct buses to Valletta which takes 30 minutes upwards, dependant on traffic. Valletta is well worth a visit and from there you can get a bus to anywhere on the island. The Malta bus service is good and reliable. If you are planning on using the buses there are some value ticket offers available with good savings. Otherwise any single journey is great value at 1.5 Euro.
We found the apartment very quiet, with just the normal noise of other people living in/moving around a building. The apartment was spotlessly clean, very large and comfortable. It has been recently fully refurbished and was way above the average sparse holiday apartment, far more like staying in somebody’s home.We found the apartment very quiet, with just the normal noise of other people living in/moving around a building.

There was everything there that you could need, including washing machine, pegs, iron and ironing board, dishwasher, coffee machine, fully equipped kitchen, Air Conditioning, loads of clean fluffy towels and a lot more that I haven’t mentioned. A lovely touch was the gift of a bottle of water and a bottle of local wine – thank you!
Marsaxlokk is a beautiful, unspoilt fishing village. The harbour is the home of many restaurants, many of which specialise in fish . There is however a wider choice of food available and as a vegetarian I ate very well ! Sunday was market day, when there was a large market along the harbour selling fish, fruit & veg and other items. It was very busy and most tables at the restaurants were occupied by 13:00 – take note if you fancy Sunday lunch!
Thankyou Charlie, Ritianne and Marsaxlokk. We had a fabulous time and hope to see you again in the future.
We had the most fabulous stay in the apartment - this was a short stay unfortunately between leaving our villa on Gozo and flying home. The apartment is excellently presented and we could not have been made more welcome by the owners. Very close to harbour front and all amenities - already planning our next visit!
We stayed here for five days and all I can say is that it was amazing!
The rooms and the apartment in general were very spacious, the bathrooms and the floor spotless. It's on a second floor and has a balcony. A very quiet place, no noise at all at night. The beds were really comfortable, and the towels and bedsheets clean and soft! The sitting area was very cozy and the TV was really good. WiFi connection perfect. The kitchen had literally everything you could need, and there's a small supermarket in a 5 minutes' walk (and a bigger one in the outskirts of town). The picturesque port is just 5 minutes from the apartment, too; you can really enjoy the local market. Free parking just in front of the building. You can visit the Ghar Dalam Cave, which is just less than a 10 minute drive from there; and the airport is really near too: just 15 minutes if you don't get lost (which is quite easy the first day...) ! Great location. Thanks too for the enormous pile of information and touristic leaflets!
Ritienne was very kind to us and helped us a lot during our stay. We really have nothing to complain about. We completely enjoyed our stay in the Waves apartment and will definitely come back soon! Great work! ;)
Thank you very much, Ritienne, and Charlie !!!
