“Could have been better”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The start was not good. We received the keys from the parents of the owner upon arrival at the airport. When we asked the codes for use of the internet, we had to pay € 20, -. This was not announced. After a long call with the owner we finally got the code for free.
Upon arrival among other things it was found that the light was not working in the room, there were supplied only 2 small towels, no adapter for the waterkettle so we could not use it, the umbrella was broken and not collapsible.
After a call the parents of the owner came to make a few things in order. According to them it was not usual that you got more than one towel, the rest you have to bring your own! But they gave us 2 more towels.
The apartment has a very spacious balcony with beautiful views over the bay. In october the sun shines on the balcony from 11 am until sunset. There are two sun beds on the balcony but they are broken. The gas-BBQ worked very well.
The bedrooms are spacious, the mattresses poor. There are no bedside lamps.
There are two bathrooms, the decor is very simple. There is little water pressure in the shower.
The living room is quite small but because of good temperatures we mainly lived outside.
The kitchen is very simple. The hot plates are rusty but functioning. The amount of suitable cookware and cups/glasses is very limited.
During our stay the elevator was not very reliable. We used several times the reset button on the 4th floor. Once we have been stuck for half an hour in the elevator until the owner came to liberate us. After that the we couldn’t use the elevator anymore.
We rented a car at the airport. We always found a parkingplace (for free) within 100 m.
In short: a simple apartment with simple furnishings and a lovely balcony.
Thanks to the parents of Jurgen who have tried to put things right. It would have been better if the apartment would have been all right upon arrival.
Pay attention that he plugs used on Malta are type G (3 pins).
Tip: Buy a simple snorkel gear and snorkel at one of the rocky coves.

“very adequate for price paid”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The penthouse is situated in a very good part of St Pauls Bay. Easy to reach seafront, not too difficult to park. Verandah is amazing, views from it stunning, and makes up for any shortcomings within the apartment itself. The apartment has a great layout, we really enjoyed the shower it was perfect. The bed could have been a bit more comfy and a bedside lamp would have been an advantage. The gas cylinder for the bar b q was unfortunately empty which was very disappointing, but the actual bar b q was fantastic. Although we were charged euro20 for wifi even though we found the tv did not work, we did not complain as the weeks rental price was very fair and no other extra expenses were incurred.
If I were the landlord, I would have left some welcoming coffee and sugar supply and some dishwashing liquid. Luckily I was aware of where to purchase these immediately.
However we were very comfortable and pleased with this accomodation and would go there again and recommend to others.
Thanks

A lovely apartment with beautiful views over the marina. Excellent sunspot. Very clean with most uilities. Could do with some updating of outside furniture. This apartment was on the 5th floor and this broke down, but after a call to the owner this was immediately rectified. Water pressure could be better, however We would be more than happy to recommend to friends or relatives.

“Great apartment with beautiful view”

Large apartment with beautiful view on the St. Paul's Bay from the terrace. It is located very close to nearby beaches. There are many good and cheap restaurants around. Also if you would like to travel by bus there are many bus stops nearby that will take you to Valletta, Gozo ferries etc.

Jurgen, the apartment owner, is a very nice guy. He told us what is around, where are the nearest grocery stores, restaurants and so on. He also arranged our transfer back to airport.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone who would like to visit Malta.

“Helpful owner, great apartment and a brilliant balcony.”

A brilliant base for our holiday to Malta.

Upon arrival Jurgen organised a taxi for us and we were shown around the apartment after picking up keys from the cafe below.

The apartment was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed. The balcony has an amazing view over St Pauls Bay and caught the sun all day.

The location is only 5 minutes walk from the main bus stop in Buggiba making it very easy for us to get around the island.

Thoroughly recommended :)

Great holiday. Busses go all over the island and are very cheap and very frequent. This is the first time I have not hired a car and had no need to do so. Visit Valleta and Gozo these are a must do.

We stayed ten days in stella marine court and it was an amazing time. The terrace was the best of the apartment. it was very big with a gas bbq, that we uses almost every night. The apartment inside is also good, big enough for 4 person. Also jurgen, the owner of this penthouse was very kindly and help us with any questions. A holiday that I never forget.
