Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Breathtaking View in Malta

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described and we couldn't have been happier with such a spectacular view of the bay! Neville and Ruth's rep met us on arrival and made us feel very welcomed. The place was clean and well equipped and for our first visit to Malta, provided us with a great "Home" away from home. Very close to amazing restaurants, easy access to buses and great night-life nearby. Would recommend the apartment for couples or young small families. Definitely will book again with Neville and Ruth! thank you for a wonderful first visit to Malta!

Wonderful rental, excellent location, fantastic view.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here from January 17-March 16, 2017. A very enjoyable stay in a great penthouse apartment in one of the best locations on Malta. Located across the street from a seafront promenade that runs several miles through some of the most popular areas. Close to grocery, stores, restaurants and bus stops, so I didn't need a car. Apartment was as advertised, very comfortable and well equipped and with fantastic views. Landlords were very friendly and helpful, arranging for airport transfers and quickly fixing minor problems. Highly recommended.

Great view from terrace!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived easter Monday with all shops closed but got a breakfast from the manager. WOW! The first thing to realize was the great view from the terrace. It is even better than on the advertising foto. The apartment ist situated between two supermarkets each about 2-3 minutes away. W-LAN worked very good and made our YouTube-sons happy. The only troubling things were the dust fluff and the old, dirty blanket for the night. Could not be used!

Owner's Response: Hi Susan! Thank you for your comments. We are very happy that you had a lovely stay in Malta and that you liked the apartment with the terrace and wonderful seaviews of Spinola Bay. Indeed apartment has an excellent location since close by one can find all the amenities like shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, cafeterias, etc. Re blanket, we were not made aware during your stay..if we were informed about it we would have replaced within few hours since we have a stock since we have several apartments. I am looking into it personally and will replace accordingly. Thank you once again and we hope you will be our guests again! Ruth and Neville

Excellent customer service

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in your Spinola Bay apartment in Malta.

The taxi, arranged for us by Ruth and Neville, was waiting for us at the airport at 22h00.

We were met at the apartment, shown around and made to feel very welcome.

The position and view is magnificent. The bus routes, supermarkets, restaurants are all on your doorstep. We would absolutely stay in this apartment again.

Ruth and Neville provided excellent customer service ! !

Autumn in Malta

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable apartment, clean and well-maintained, in an attractive location overlooking Spinola Bay. There are numerous restaurants of all types within walking distance and excellent bus links to other parts of Malta. Supermarkets and smaller shops are close by.

St Julian's has a smart seafront promenade and is a convenient place from which to explore the island. Like everywhere in Malta there is redevelopment building going on but this should not deter travellers from visiting this interesting country. The owners of this property provided excellent customer service and arranged trouble-free taxi transers from and to the airport.

I would not hesitate to recommend it to someone with reasonable mobility looking for an apartment.

Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to the next one :) ruth and neville
