“Fabulous apartment and hosts”
Reviewed 25 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The apartment was just as advertised and pictured. It was clean, well looked after and comfortable with everything that is needed to relax on holiday. The views over Spinola Bay were fabulous. The apartment is near shops, restaurants and bars and is very handy for the local buses. Having said all this the terraces of the apartment are very restful and peaceful. The hosts, Neville and Ruth and their team are very welcoming, helpful and hospitable and make themselves available. I would highly recommend this apartment and these hosts. Thank you for a great holiday place.

The location of the Penthouse apartment at Spinola Bay was delightful. The actual apartment was adequate with a good working kitchen and a small but functional bathroom with a shower over the bath.
The bedroom was cosy and situated at the back of the property which was nice as it was quieter and it led onto a nice terrace with sun loungers. The terrace at the front overlooked the Bay and was beautiful. We spent many evenings eating out or simply enjoying a glass of wine.
All in all, a lovely experience with helpful hosts.
Many thanks Ruth and Neville

Simply an amazing place to stay for a first visit to Malta. The apartment was exactly as pictured, clean and well equipped. Ruth & Neville's rep met us at the apartment and made us feel like family. The perfect "Home" away from home for our stay while exploring the islands. Great restaurants within walking distance, grocery, bakery and many other amenities nearby. Right on a main bus route with easy access to everywhere within a reasonable time for great local experience.lots of nearby night life. Would recommend this apartment for couples or small families.

Ideally situated penthouse flat, 10 minute walk to the centre of paceville with a excellent selection of restaurants, pubs and clubs but with flat being situated in St Juians its offers peaceful and relaxing views over the bay and a second balcony at the rear of the flat offers sunbathing all day!
The penthouse itself has all that you would expect/want. A 7 day stay and the bill for electricity and water was approximately 50 euro's.

“Fantastic Apartment”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The apartment is located on the 7th floor of a block on the waterfront in Spinola Bay. There are only 2 apartments on this floor and a lift to reach them. During our stay we didn’t see or hear our neighbours (other than the odd light being on) so can say the building itself is nice a quite.
The apartment is in a fantastic location with wonderful views over Spinola and St Julian’s Bay. Paceville, is a short walk away and there are so many buses passing through this area you can get anywhere on the island easily enough. Around Spinola and St Julians you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants which are busy, but not overcrowded (if you want that, go to Paceville). There is also a very good supermarket 2 minutes walk.
The road outside is quite busy but being this high-up the noise from traffic below is minimal. The bedroom is at the back of the building, behind is a small street (hardly any traffic and residential buildings so also very quiet).
Within the apartment you’re well catered for, the kitchen is well appointed, with everything you need for a week or two’s stay. The bathroom likewise, however you do have plan showers etc a little beforehand as the boiler needs time to warm up the water. But if like us you don’t want a scolding hot shower in 30C heat, 15 to 20 minutes is plenty of time.
The lounge area has two sofa’s and a TV unit which seems to have channel known to mankind (inc Sky TV) so if you want a quite night in, you’ve plenty of options.
2 large and very private balcony’s (front and rear) so sun worshippers are well catered for. We had a couple of BBQ’s on the balcony (although BBQ tools were lacking) we made do with what was available with no problems.
Our only negative was the mosquitos – but that’s hardly the fault of the apartment. As one of us was there to scuba dive, using Air Con isn’t a good idea (it can block the sinuses, making diving extremely painful, if not impossible). So we would have paid etc for a Mosquito net above the bed. The local mozzies seem impervious to spray’s and lotions (but we didn’t have DEET – take some with you) , so we both came home sporting an array of bites. But as stated above that’s not the apartments fault and anywhere you stay you’ll face the same issue.
We would happily and without reservation recommend the apartment to our friends and family. If you’re planning a trip to Malta, this is an excellent choice for your accommodation.

“Good Location”
Reviewed 5 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed in this apartment for 9 nights. It is really well located with great views of the bay. Close to supermarkets, and the bus stop. While the apartment is on a busy road, it is quiet inside. The apartment was really clean and well equipped, well supplied with blankets and heaters. The bed is quite firm. Our only problem was that the pillows were lumpy and the towels were thin. Perhaps both are ready to be replaced. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return .
