About Neville Galea

My family has been in the holiday home rental business since 1981. Thus I was brought up in this environment and this business.

After some years working at HSBC bank, now together with other family members I take care of our holiday homes and make sure all is up to date and Clients are having a good time on our lovely Islands.

Neville Galea purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Neville Galea chose Island of Malta

Clients love the terraces! These terraces are always Sunny and have a gas BBQ and garden furniture.

The location of the penthouse is idyllic. It is just 200m from the seafront and Sliemas famous promenade. It is close to bars, restaurants, min markets (just down the road) and Supermarkets. The street is a residential street. The penthouse faces a large courtyard of a school.

The bus stop is just 300m away. The buses from this bus stop go to all tourist attractions in Malta.

Sliema Ferries is also just 700m from the apartment. From here you can cross by ferry to Valletta, do one day cruises around the island, visit the Blu Lagoon, or make a smaller trip around the Grand Harbor.

What makes this apartment unique

The best benefits are, the location, terraces, property is fully air-conditioned and the great service we give! In fact we meet all guests on arrival and if clients want we sit down and give information on what are the main tourist attractions in Malta and how to make the most of your holiday according to the guests likes and preferences. We are also reachable 24/7 and have a full time maintenance service.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment is so comfortable. Perfect for 5 people, the terrace with bbq is just the cherry on the top of the cake. Highly recommended

A jewel in the heart of Sliema: quiet, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse at Blue Waters is at the top of a building in a quiet residential street just minutes from all of Sliema's amenities (including shops, restaurants, the main ferry and bus stops to get around the island, and swimming at Balluta Bay). The apartment is comfortable and well equipped - including with a microwave, hair dryer, fans, air conditioning, crockery, cutlery etc - but the real draw is the spacious terrace which affords wonderful views over Sliema with glimpses of the sea in three directions, not to mention the glorious sunrises and sunsets. There is a smaller balcony at the back, which means that sun seekers and shade lovers will always find somewhere to suit them.

Owner Neville and his team are welcoming and always just a phone call/email away in case of query. I have stayed at Blue Waters three times now and it feels like a home from home. If you want an authentic Maltese experience at a competitive price then this is a good place to stay - refreshingly different from the bland waterfront hotels and the tourist hordes.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. It is nice to know our hard work is appreciated. We make our best to offer good quality accommodation and a great service. We employ our own cleaners, maintenance personnel and representatives(hosts). Our office staff are there 7 days a week too, to help with any queries and to ensure all goes well in the daily running of the apartments. We the owners are there 24/7 for our guests. Our mobile phones are always on, including at night for any emergency. Thus booking with us offers piece of mind as you can have that local feeling with the support you would find only in a big hotel. We hope to see you again soon for your fourth stay!!!

Sliema penthouse stay.

  • 4 of 5

We returned to the penthouse for our 5th visit. The location is ideal for shops, restaurants and for local transport to explore the island. The apartment was clean and comfortable with a large terrace for relaxing in the beautiful sunshine. There was no barbecue this time which would have been nice. I can highly recommend this apartment for anyone wishing to stay in the Sliema area.

Wonderful location for our needs, close to everything

  • 4 of 5

Looking for a rental close to where my meetings were held we found this one and jumped on it. The apartment is as pictured and advertised. There is a small store at the end of the block and a pub around the corner. The weather was iffy while we were in Malta so we did not enjoy the patio as much as we would have liked but when the weather was good, it was extremely comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet especially when you consider the school across the street. The beds were good and the place was very clean. We booked a pickup at the airport which took us to the apartment but I do not think a first time visitor to Malta could have found it on their own.

We stay in apartments on trips of more that a couple of days duration and have had some excellent stays. This stay, our first in Malta was very good and the location of the apartment played a large part in that.

The only negative comment we can make is the lack of paper towels in the kitchen and only one roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. There were no condiments in the kitchen but we always have salt & pepper and some spices in our kit when we travel. I know these are small things but they make a difference between a good and great place to stay. That said, I would definitely recommend this rental to a friend and will strongly consider it for our next trip to Malta.

Owner's Response: thank you for your nice comment and it was a pleasure to have you stay with us! As you very well say, apartment is excellently located in a quiet area but close to everything, like bus stops, bars, shops, etc. Re condiments, we do not leave in the apartment only for hygenic reasons, however we have taken note re toilet paper. Thank you and we look forward to your next visit ! ruth and neville

Sliema is the most important tourist town in Malta. It has the longest seafront promenade and is full of life all year round.

Sliema has a long rock beach. In many areas there are lidos and nice kiosks. Along the cost there are also many playgrounds and nice seafront gardens.

Bars, restaurants, ice cream, shops, cafeterias, car hire shops, discos, nightclubs, casinos, water sport outlets etc. are all close by.

Sliema is also the best for buses. In fact to visit all tourist attractions in Malta you just need to take 1 bus! Also close to the apartment, from Sliema Ferries, there are many boats that depart daily to more secluded beaches and do one day cruises.
