We booked the Blue Harbour Apartments primarily for their location on St Pauls Bay which is a quieter location than the busy resorts of St Julians and those nearer to Valetta.
The Apartment is comfortable, clean and tidy with nice views out over St Pauls Bay.
The Appartment has WIFI, and all international TV, oven, microwave, and toaster and a washing machine. There is a local convenience store with all the essentials, and a very good Cafe/Restaurant just a few minutes walk from the apartment.
There is ample parking available on both sides of the road outside the property. There is also a bus stop about 100 meters away.
We tried using the bus on our first day travelling to Mdina, but chose to hire a car from Swift, a short walk from the Apparent.
If you want pubs, McDonalds, Pizza Hut etc. They are all only a few miles away at Buglbba/Qawra.
We found this accomodation, Malta and the Maltese excellent hosts
We had booked Blue Harbour - the pent house and felt confident and assured all through the whole of the process; before, during and after we had good and nice contact with Neville and Ruth.
We arrived at the airport and Neville and Ruth had arranged for minibus to pick us up. (Parents and 3 sons).
Arriving at the appartment we were greeted by Slavatore, who showed us the appartment and told everything we needed to know.
We arrived at the appartment at 830pm, but Salvatore had purchases some bread, ham, cheese, water and even a bottle of wine.
Lifesaver - all though we did find out that the convient store on the other side closes at 10pm, so we had plenty of time to fill up the fridge.
The appartment was nice and clean and through-out the week easy to maintain in good order. Wifi and television worked perfectly - we didn't miss out on any of our favourite tv-shows.
The weather was kind of shifty - sun, rain, storm and thunder. I guess Malta when it's moody.
The bus-systems seems to be working ok, but we experienced full busses several times, so we had to wait.
Located quite central, the rides weren't long to any of the places we went to.
We like hiking - so we took the hike to Golden Bay (nice, clean beach) and to Mellieha Beach (windy and full of seaweed) - so we continued to Paradise Bay. (Best beach ever, crystal clear water, plenty of fish for our snorkling boys; really worth the extra walk of 1,2 km.
Through out the week Neville and Ruth quickly answered any questions we might have.
Leaving the place was easy - we left it "in good order" - sweeping the floor, doing the dishes and stuff - but no serious cleaning for us to do; very nice.
All in all - we were very happy with the place and can recommend it to others.
Dear Neville and Ruth
Thank you for making our stay in Malta even nicer.
Blue Harbour Penthouse offers not just a breathtaking view over St. Paul's Bay but is an almost perfect springboard to explore the many sides of Malta. Theapartment is located in a rather quiet part of the former village close to bus stations from where you can travel to the many intersting sites of Malta. And if you came back a bit exhausted due to Maltese traffic, the place with its three balconies offers a perfect space for relaxation.
Clean and modern with well equiped kitchen and bathroom.
And the terrace offers breathtakingly views of the picturesque harbour, a glimpse through a window on another more relaxed world. Thanks to the modern lift you are not too breathless though!
It's the little touches, pick up and drop off from the airport, help with trip booking, even a shopping trolley to make the water and milk travel back from the nearby convienience store wheely easy!
The apartment is roomy, air con modern and good internet, and a modern washing machine to make your return home less laundry intensive. Barbque on terrace too.
We do not want to leave!
Plenty of restaurant, clubs and bars of character nearby, yet at night not at all noisy. Peace near paceville...
And a bus stop opposite making mdina or valletta using the all day €1.50 ticket in modern air conditioned comfort an easy journey. Lots of free parking on the promandae opposite if hiring a car. And ecabs are a lazy option too.
Malta, a medaevil paradise with modern facilities. And Blue Harbour the place to be based.

Just spent 2 great weeks here and would easily come back again. The apartment has everything that you need including air-con. The kitchen is well equipped and the views across the bay are stunning. There's an elevator to make it easy on the legs. We were left a grocery starter pack which was much appreciated when we first arrived. There are a few restaurants and bars within a 10 minute walk and there's a good bus service if you want to go further afield. We have started to save up to come back again next year.
A well equipped and finished appartment, comfortable beds and a large terrace to enjoy the superb views over St Paul's Bay. Location is peaceful with plenty of parking, there is a varied selection of restaurants and cafes nearby all with good reviews. Highly recommended.
