The location of the flat was great for us with family two doors down, bus stops, access to water ("Cave" beach across the street and beautiful Fekruna Beach a walk around the bay--but worth the exercise :-)), a great eating spot (Xemxija Cafe and Lounge), and a Convenience Shop all within easy reach. The flat is small and the price is high during peak season, but the owners were very friendly and ready to help with anything we needed. They brought and took away an extra bed and fans within the hour of our asking. When our cable TV (sooooooo many channels!!) went down, they showed up immediately to fix it (and taught me how to do so if it should happen again --it did not).
So, it's a bit of a mixed review. For price and size, I would rate it a 2-3/5, but for service, location, and TV channels, I would give it a 5 :D
Truly, this place is PERFECT for one person (two at the most). For a family of four (with a niece who opted to stay in our place, rather than mom and dad's) it was pretty tight.
We are a family of 4 members and we enjoyed staying in this appartment for one week having the beautiful view on the bay and the sea. The place looks exactly like on the photos and it was absolutely up to our standart. Ruth and Neville are two persons who care about their guests and they let you feel it so we are completely satisfied. It's comfortable to have the busstation nearby so you can arrive also from the airport or leave for any destination on the island. With the busticket for one week ( 21 euros) you travel easily around. The excursion on the boat to the caves and the blue lagoon is a must, it costs only 17 euros (by getaways Malta) and it shows you the beauty of nature - for us the highlight. We like to come back as soon as possible.
We stayed for a week at the Blue Harbour Apartment, the view from your little balcony was wonderful. The two bedrooms were quite large, although the lounge, dining and kitchen are all one room. The facility is clean and tidy with adequate kitchenware for two to four people.
Coming from Australia we found it strange to be paying extra for water and power, however it only amounted to €10for the week. Be aware you need to catch the bus from this area, we walked a lot but also used the public buses. If. There is construction anywhere nearby keep the balcony doors closed, we came back one day to everything covered in dust.
stayed for a week at blue harbour1. apartment was lovely and clean and had all you need for self catering. after a mix up by the travel agent ruth and her husband could not have been nicer and helpful after our original choice had been double booked. they left their dinner to come and sort out the problem. lovely bottle of wine and water in the apartment for us. thanks
Neville and Ruth are the perfect hosts and we couldn't have asked for more!
The apartment was fantastic and clean and tidy. Nothing was too much when we had any issues or dramas made purely by our own somewhat stupidity... I have a disability and needed to find suitable transport and just by asking about the possibility of hiring a mobility scooter the details and location were provided!
The apartment itself has stunning views over the water and also the local bus routes cover most areas throughout Malta and the best thing is the bus stops are only a very short distance from the front door! Just a couple of minutes, literally!!
Very Highly recommended and we will both be going back as soon as we can!
THANK YOU NEVILLE AND RUTH for giving us such a fantastic and beautiful base for our time in Malta!!
Our stay in Blue Harbour apartments was very enjoyable. It was a pleasure to stay in an old building which has been modernised to a high standard. The apartment was accessible by lift and stairs and was well fitted out. Our balcony had lovely views overlooking St Paul's bay and was away from the busy tourist resorts. We had a choice of buses to various locations and a quiet safe swimming spot within 5 minutes walk of the apartment. We would be happy to return to the apartment and to recommend it to others.
Lovely location overlooking St Pauls Bay. Apartment was clean and tidy with everything you would need.Bus stop was conveniently close by so you could travel anywhere on the island. Would recommend this apartment for a pleasant and peaceful stay.
