About George Debono

My name is George and I live in the locality of Zurrieq in Malta together with my wife Cynthia and our two daughters, Michela and Julia. GCM Holiday Apartments is a small family run business which we have set up and run jointly for the last nine years.

How did we start?

The first property making up the portfolio of GCM Holiday Apartments was Ta' Kurun property in the locality of Marsascala in October 2006. After 5 years renting Ta' Kurun apartment, we bought our second property adjacent to the first one......Ta' Rosi apartment. We are now investing our energies in expanding our portfolio of apartments ......Ta` Gakob. We are working on finishing a three bedroom apartment furnished with all modern amenities hosting from 4 to 6 guests. This property is situated in Mellieha which is a quaint village situated in the northern part of the island surrounded by nice beaches and numerous tourist attractions.

What is our motto?

Our motto is to offer accommodations of good value so that this increases the entire holiday package which the lovely country of Malta has to offer to its tourists. All our apartments offer a great escape to guests who want to relax and enjoy some tranquil days from the hassle and bustle of every day life. Sipping a good glass of wine on one of the terraces of the apartments watching the sun setting or twinkling stars is surely a dream come true for all of us who are tied up in busy schedules and stuffy offices all day long.

What are the services offered by GCM Holiday Apartments?

We collect our customers from the airport and take them to the apartments situated in Bella Vista, Marsascala. On the way to the apartment, we show our customers the facilities which are available in this locality such as restaurants, shops, the bus terminus, etc. We furthermore offer bicycle rental as well as car rental services upon request.

George Debono purchased this apartment in 2008

Why George Debono chose Mellieha

Ta` Gakob property is different to the other two properties; it accommodates up to 6 persons while the other properties accommodate up to four persons. This makes it more attractive to families having two to three children. The other two properties attract couples who wish to spend a tranquil holiday in a quiet place. \Furthermore Ta` Gakob property is situated in the northern part of the island whereas the other properties are in the Southern part of Malta.

The property is extremely well located as it is close to the bus station and the best beach in Malta

  • 5 of 5

We are a young couple who traveled at the end of September to Malta and chose this property as accommodation for 11 nights. We are very happy with the choice we made as George and his property really made our holiday a special one. George was most helpful and the description, as well as the pictures on the website are 100% true. The apartment is well equipped in terms of house appliances and also a good wi-fi connection and AC if needed. Apart from this, George offered us a free ride to and from the airport and we appreciated it a lot.

Thank you very much George for all your support and kindness! We will be back!

Lovely apartment and neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Were staying there in June 2016, three adults and two kids.

Lovely apartment with gorgeous view! Walking distance to the beach. Just across road from church. Nice barbecue on the roof. Very silent area.

The landlord is very helpful. Organized our transfer from and to the airport.

The Mellieha bay beach is very nice and child-friendly.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay and would definitely come again!

Good size apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was as described and the views to the town were spectacular. The area was quiet and suited us as we wanted peaceful evenings. It was well maintained and very confortable with all the items you need for a trouble free stay. The kitchen was particularly well equipped, and the laundry facilities excellent. George was on hand to sort out a minor problem during the week.

We enjoyed the walk up to the town which had sufficient shops for our needs, baker, butcher and supermarkets. The walk down even better!

Happy to recommend this apartment both for its facilities and location.

Little gem

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time In this apartment highlights George collects and returns you to airport ..beautiful equipt & spacious apartment with a lovely balcony to watch sunset .. Views of the bay & the stunning church lighted up at night that looks like a fairytale !!!! No outside noise as you are in the middle of the hill but still close enough to walk up town or to the beach & recommend a weekly bus pass from post office at €21 unlimited Beach towels provided at a very small charge .. There was also milk bread etc for us as we arrived very late which was really appreciated & George was at end of a call if any problems which there was none ... A wonderful stay to explore the island Loved it & would highly recommend !!!!!!
