About Neville Galea

We are a family business that offers comfortable and luxurious holiday accommodation in Malta since 1981. The business is now run by the second generation and are full time on these properties and thus can offer the best service and 24/7 support.

Our apartments are conceived for holiday accommodation and not adapted apartments for this purpose. Thus all apartments are:

In the best touristic areas of Malta.

Have great sea views, country views or just off the seafront.

Are close to the bus stop, and the bus stop is on the main bus routes with many busses passing frequently. Thus reaching all the corners of Malta will be easy.

Close to the best beaches and touristic attractions & Maltese countryside. This makes it ideal for winter holidays, where you can enjoy long walks in the countryside to discover old footpaths, roman roads, romantic traditional farmhouses, chapels and towers, curt ruts and secluded beaches.

Close to shops, village centre and all amenities.

Close to bars, and restaurants. Some are also walking distance to casinos and nightclubs.

Close to and easily reachable to and from the ferries and the airport. Also all apartments are close to ferries and one day cruise departure points to discover Gozo and Comino (Blue Lagoon).

We are fully dedicated to our properties and guests. We are always a phone call away and try to be as helpful as possible. We offer and can give information before clients come to Malta (or on arrival), both about our properties and about Malta in general. We offer to book airport transfers by taxi or minibus at the best prices by trustworthy drivers.

We offer to help book car hire at the lowest prices. Also we can arrange for motorbike, mountain bike, and boat hire. We also can arrange fishing trips with fulltime and part time fishermen.

On arrival we meet you personally at the property and see that all is up to your satisfaction. We also offer to give you tips for your holiday according to the season and your likes and preferences.

Why Neville Galea chose Island of Malta

A brand new penthouse in the best location of Bugibba, very quiet position and central at the same time. All the privacy you deserve!

What makes this apartment unique

During your stay we offer 24/7 support, a fast maintenance and replacement service should anything go wrong in the property.

All our properties are by far the best kept as we do an ongoing maintenance. Also the properties are licensed and insured for your piece of mind.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A welcome from the owners as usual. Ruth and Neville try very hard to make your stay comfortable be it long or short. A comfortable 1 bedroom apartment with a bed settee in the lounge. A full cooker in the kitchen plus microwave. Only downside is the small work surface, but the table is adequate to use for prepping veg and salads. I use it to bake on. The outlook over to St. Paul's island and bay from the front terrace is wonderful. The terrace has beds and seating with a gas barbie for those who enjoy outdoor cooking. The back veranda off the bedroom is a sun trap in the afternoons. Where there is a washing machine. A great place to stay as there are plenty of supermarkets, bars and restaurants near by. A brilliant bus service with stops near by and about a 15 minute walk to the bus station. Suitable for young and old as there is a lift to all floors. Maybe difficult for wheel chair users as there are a few steps to negotiate up to lift and one at entrance. We keep coming back so it must be good. Wifi and multi channel tv in every apartment too

Schönes Apartement mit toller Aussicht

  • 4 of 5

Das Apartement von Ruth und Neville ist groß und hell und sachlich eingerichtet. Es ist für zwei Personen sehr gut geeignet. Es gibt eine richtig große Terrasse zum Osten und eine kleine zum Westen. In den wärmeren Monaten kann man dort morgens und abends gut sitzen oder auch in der Sonne liegen. (2 Sonnenliegen) Im November scheint die Sonne leider nicht so oft, es kann auch schon mal den ganzen Tag regnen. Dann ist alles etwas klamm und man muss heizen, damit z.B. die Handtücher trocknen. Ein Radiator (mit Gasflasche) sorgt für Wärme.

Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, es gibt einen Gas-Herd mit Backofen und genügend Töpfe, Pfannen und Geschirr.

Das Wasser in der Dusche war immer heiß (Elektro-Boiler), aber der Duschvorhang hält nicht ganz dicht. Unsere Kommunikation mit Mrs. Galea funktionierte wunderbar über WhatsApp :) Probleme wurden sofort von der Angestellten "Stef" (superfreundlich!) behoben.

Gut:

- Fahrstuhl (6. Stock!)

- Tolle Aussicht

- viele Parkplätze (November)

- Matratze (schön stabil)

Weniger gut:

- Ungemütliches helles Deckenlicht

- im Wohnzimmer keine Stehlampe (soll aber geändert werden)

- keine Filter-Kaffeemaschine (aber gute, kleine manuelle Espresso-Maschine für den Herd)

Wenn das Wetter sonnig und trocken ist und man bis spät abends die Terrassen nutzen kann, vielleicht auch mal draußen grillen (Gas-Grill vorhanden), dann ist das Apartement SEHR ZU EMPFEHLEN! Tagsüber war es draußen oft wärmer, als im Apartement - aber so ist es eben im November.

Excellent location, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in the Seashells penthouse in Bugibba. The apartment has a fantastic location, is equipped with everything you need for your holiday, and the views from the balcony are stunning. Neville and Ruth took great care to answer all our questions before arrival. We really liked the fact that there were two balconies, one of them large enough for sun beds and a large table. It was the perfect place from which to watch the sunset!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was all it described and more. Very clean, everything you needed and some lovely personal touches. Balcony off the living room was huge and despite having a dining table and chairs, 2 sun loungers and gas barbecue the space left over was twice the size of a hotel balcony. Stunning views from both balcony's. Really handy for promenade, bus station, bars and clubs and yet really quiet. Lift in building made life easier. Owners correspondence was great and they were accommodating for our 00.45am arrival. Definitely recommend and would stay again.

Stunning views and location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a very good location 5 mins from seafront and very near the old part of St Pauls near the church and the supberb Tarragon restaurant . Two balconies with beautiful views over St Pauls island. This also allows a good draft of air through the apartment.

The only small quibble is that the shower curtains are quite flimsy and water often ends up on floor- but minor issue.

Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: thank you for your nice comments and we are very happy that you had a nice stay in Malta and like the apartment :) Indeed apartment is excellently located very close to the sea and has wonderful panoramic seaviews. The promenade is close by and there you find several restaurants, shops, bus stops, etc. We are looking into the point mentioned for the shower curtain. Thank you once again for being our guests and we will be delighted to host you again! neville and ruth

From the Owner

A brand new penthouse in the best location of Bugibba, very quiet position and central at the same time. All the privacy you deserve!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : 1 hour by bus- 30 minutes by car at 20 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 100 Metres Nearest Ferry : Cirkewwa 15 minutes by bus at 12 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : at 100 Metres Nearest Beach : 150 mt rocky beach- sandy beach 400 mt away at 150 Metres Car: not necessary

Bugibba is one of the most beautiful villages in Malta. The flat is located in a quiet area, just 150 mt from the promenade, where a nice rocky beach is ideal for jumping into the sea.

Bugibba has a busy town centre full of shops, banks, pharmacies etc. There one might find more bars, restaurants (also McDonalds and Pizza hut), diving and water sport centres. Ferries to remote beaches and islands like Comino and Gozo leaves from the Bugibba Jetty (just 300 meters away from the flat).

The flat is also close to the best sandy beaches like Mellieha Bay, Paradise Bay, Golden Sands, Gnejna Bay (15 minutes by bus). In winter long walks and picnics in the countryside and along the sea are a must. In summer one can enjoy the sun at the beach in many ways from the most relaxing to the most adventurous ways. In the evening a walk on the promenade or a local village feast is a must. The bus stop is located on the promenade down the road.
