Patrick is a fantastic host - from the moment I booked he answered all my queries quickly, arranged a taxi transfer from the airport and met us at the door of the apartment to show us around. He is very enthusiastic about his country and gave us a great first impression of Malta. It really matters to him that guests have everything they need, are happy and have a good holiday.
The apartment is in an authentic Maltese building but is very well fitted out and modern and has everything you need. Patrick also provided a welcome pack with wine, bread, biscuits, fruit, jam, coffee, tea, sugar and milk. The air conditioning in the bedroom is very efficient and there are fans in every other room. As we stayed for two weeks we found the washing machine very useful especially as my husband and son went diving a few times. Clothes dry very quickly on the indoor line in the balcony which leads off from the bedroom.
Everything is well maintained and when the shower hose started leaking Patrick replaced it the same day!
What I really loved about the apartment was the roof terrace which has four separate areas. It is very well maintained and looks very pretty with lots of plants and a fantastic view across the Grand Harbour from the top deck. There are tables and comfortable chairs and loungers with cushions. I had the whole terrace to myself most times I went up there. It's quite an asset in the heart of a city.
The apartment is only a minutes walk from one of the main shopping streets and a couple of minutes from the cathedral and Upper Barrakka Gardens which is nice for a stroll at any time of the day or evening. The bus station is only a few minutes walk away and you can get virtually anywhere by bus. There are lots of restaurants nearby. Although everything is so close the apartment is in a quiet street which feels very safe even at night.
We really enjoyed Valletta and Patrick made it especially enjoyable.
Excellent location, very confortable and very nice host. It is a perfect base to discover Valetta. We recommend !
This apartment was perfect for our holiday! It was very well appointed and offered everything we could have asked for. Very comfortable with ac in main bedroom, fans in the other rooms. Patrick was a wonderful host who made us feel at home with extra special treatment. He left a welcome kit of milk, bread, fruit, coffee, tea and wine. Loved the roof top gardens to eat dinner or enjoy a glass of wine. We loved that we could walk everywhere in bakery's and we used the great bus system to see much of the island. Valeria has lots of good historical museums and the island is full of natural beauty.
Location, location, location! The ideal place to stay in Malta, just a few minutes from the bus station with one of the most efficient bus systems taking you all over the island and a few mins walk away from the best view of the three cities.
The apartment provides everything you need and more. The rooftop views and seating area over Valletta are spectacular and the welcome from the owners is genuine - they'll do everything to ensure that you have a wonderful stay are responsive to your needs (thanks for letting us relax on the rooftop on the last day) and are charming and charismatic. They are so proud of their apartment and Malta that their enthusiasm rubs off on you - not that it needs to as both Malta and the apartment sell themselves. A lovely break and would definitely return.
Patrick could not have been more helpful, the booking was easy, he arranged an airport transfer which worked perfectly, met us when we arrived and showed us the flat, gave us a welcome pack or fruit, bread,wine, milk etc and a gift on leaving.
The flat was beautiful and impeccably clean and very well equipped. When I texted him to say the hairdryer was missing he immediately went and bought a replacement.
The location was perfect, so near the main streets of Valletta with a great bakery for fresh breads and snacks next door. We spent quite a lot of time on the various roof terraces which had superb views of the harbour.
We had a wonderful holiday thank you Patrick.
Excellent apartment in the heart of Valletta. Spacious attractive rooms and all facilities required for a holiday rental were provided by Patrick, including a good welcome pack. The roof terrace was an excellent facility which would be perfect during the warmer weather, although, being March with lovely sunny days, it was a little cool in the early mornings and evenings when we would have used it for breakfast or wine.
Patrick was clearly very proud of his apartment and his city and deservedly so.
We, a retired couple, stayed at this apartment for a week to visit Malta and Gozo. We can highly recommend it. Patrick, our host, welcomed us and spent a good amount of time explaining everything and making recommendations, even though our arrival was late on a Saturday night. There was a welcome package of bread, milk, fruit cookies and wine. The apartment is perfectly-situated in the old part of Valletta, close to all the sites to visit there, with easy access to the ferry across the harbour to the "3-Cities" and an easy walk to the main bus terminal for visiting the rest of Malta and Gozo. We were glad to have taken Patrick's suggestion to get an economical one-week bus pass that was good for both islands. The apartment is spacious; the AC works well in the bedroom and wall-mounted fans in the other rooms are perfect with the high ceilings. The kitchen is well-equipped and Patrick has appointed the apartment as if he lived in it. The roof-top terrace was a wonderful place for lunch or a nightcap with 4 separate areas with different views, which would have allowed for privacy if wanted from other guests, although we did not encounter any during our stay. Overall, we do not think we could have found a place as good and a host more welcoming. Patrick's current work adding a lift will make it even better for those on the upper floors.
