Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
An escape to a serene and peacful hamlet but minutes away from entertainment hub

A choice of 3 tranquil villa apartments with all amenities in this exclusive part of Malta. Quiet and peaceful yet only minutes away from the entertainment hub of Paceville and the more popular St. Julians Bay with its many restaurants and great bars. Properties also enjoys the use of a large swimming pool (41 sq m), sunbeds, deckchairs, hammock for a couple, 3 seater hammock swing, rocking bench, large umbrellas, gazebo seating for 8, barbecue area with its own fridge and kitchen facilities, shower and WC facilities by pool area. The dedicated solar heating system for the pool allows use of the pool from April to October. Access to pool area is via wooden bridge over large cascading koy fish pond. A further gazebo with vine tree is adjacent to a smaller water turtle pond. Very romantic setting in this hilltop area with extensive views of Malta, where the tropical garden and the cascading waters from the fish ponds continue to add to the serenity that the whole place seems to create.

Our pets: Our garden, although small, is very mature and extremely well kept, providing a tranquil atmosphere, also helped by the sound of the cascading waters in the background. Our own pets, (cats and dog), other than the koy fish and turtles already mentioned, also have their own separate dens, and are well kept, pampered and cared for.

For those who want more out of their holiday: The pool and garden areas have proven to be a refreshing start or close to any day, particularly if this was a warm or even a blistering one. But Malta has much more to offer than just lazing about in the sun. For this reason we have teamed up with some of the most interesting tour, leisure and event operators on the island, providing day cruises around the Maltese archipelago on a Turkish gullet, an evening’s entertainment extravaganza live show on the 1565 Great Siege of Malta, a visit to the nearby water marine park, an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience swim with the dolphins, or how about exploring some of the most interesting dive sites in the Mediterranean. In collaboration with our friends at Go Dive Malta, we are now also able to offer this experience to practically everyone, from beginners to dive masters. Transport arrangements have also been secured for all these events to pick our guests from our apartments (or very close by).

What we stand for.: We have been called ‘a home away from home’ by some of our past guests, a name which honours us completely, and while we continue to dispense recommendations on what to do and where to go during your stay to help you better discover these culture-packed islands, we will strive to live up to that name and better our product.

What can I say?

Our stay at the sky blue apartment was amazing. The accomodation was clean and well presented with a pool area that really is an oasis. The place looks just as good in reality as does in the pictures.

Paul and Josanne are two of the most friendly and accomodating people you could wish to meet. They are very welcoming and attentive yet they are never imposing and your privacy is always respected. Nothing is too much trouble and they will always go out of their way to make sure your stay is as comfortable and stress free as possible.

I have visited Malta many times and I can safely say we will definitely be staying here again, you really do get the personal touch.

This place is perfect for a large group looking .

  • 5 of 5

The pool area is a little paradise away from the towns and busy areas. Car hire is recommended but the bus stop is only a short walk from the apartment and taxis can be ordered from the owners or online.

The owners are a delightful couple and were very helpful during our stay. The rooms are clean with plenty of space. We were a group of 9 and didn't even use all the beds and extra beds can be provided.

Everyone was very happy with the apartments and would definitely stay here again if returning to Malta.

delightful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this villa was well beyond what was expected. A truly lovely place to to stay. All we needed was there, and the rest. Any queries we had were quickly answered by the lovely couple who own the villa. Even when one of our group had a bad injury they drove her to A&E and waited for her. Accomadation was great, and a charming area to swim, BBQ, party and relax in. I would definetly go back here again! An overall 10/10 stay!

wonderful and well kept, it made the holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Paul and josanne were the upmost wonderful hosts, they put up with a group of 10 Scottish friends, they must be super hosts.

the villa itself was homely and well maintained. the outside area where we spent most of our time as it was the most beautiful garden and pool area, was well maintained, clean and full of fun structures. we dined outside using there stone bbq and sat in the gazebo with a lovely view of the pool and waterfall which leads to a hidden cove Jacuzzi bath. they were the pleasant couple who even put up with us for a meal which was cooked by us so they are brave to have even ate it. it was honestly one of the best vacations I have been on, and it had a huge amount to do with paul and josanne. I cant wait to get back to malta and play again in the sun and the pool and maybe have another trip to best ice cream shop ever with the two of them. huge thanks to the two of them.

Cheryl.

Great stay in Malta

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 14 spanish people. When we arrived Paul and his wife were waitting for us in the house. They were so kind with us. The first day Paul took us to the city center and he helped us to look for some interesting places to visit there. He also helped us to print our tikets. I can´t say anything bad about them, they were very good people.

The colours apartments were very well and they had all the facilities we needed. We spent good moments in the swimming pool and with the BBQ. The house is just like the photos (or even better). All nights we went to party by taxi but they were not very expensive. I recommend everyone to stay here.

Amazing garden, cosy apartments. Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Malta. We were with a group of 13 and stayed with Paul and Josanne for 8 days.

During the day we mostly enjoyed the amazing garden or we took a trip to a beach or a city. Paul is very helpful with ordering things like a trip to Blue Lagoon (very nice beach) or a taxi or even food. But just laying at the poolside is also very enjoyable.

Partying in Malta is also not a problem. Beforehand, we were a bit dubious if we could enjoy the nightlife in Malta. But as a group of young Dutch students we have had the time of our lives! Nice clubs and a lot of places where you can get cheap drinks. We highly suggest Footloose in st. Julians!

Thus overall we are very positive about our stay. The apartments were clean and Paul and Josanne made us immediately feel comfortable.

Madliena's pristine location between two valleys provides a perfect opportunity for countryside walks. This hamlet is located on one of the highest points on the island thus helping to 'cool' down the hot summer nights with its gentle breeze off the nearby coastal areas. From here one can see right across the island, all the way from Marsaxlokk, to Mdina, Valletta, and the north of the island. An important feature in Madliena are the Victoria lines where a natural fault runs roughly east to west across the island. It was the British who, by 1900 built a series of forts with intervening walls and gun emplacements along the 12km of the ridge. Because of its vantage point, Madliena was mostly used for military reasons with the most important site being the Madliena Tower. Within close vicinity, one can also find the Meditteraneo Water Park, Malta’s only marine park. This is a popular place with its many water rides, attraction pools and marine part where one can also swim with dolphins.

Facilities

From the Owner

The swimming pool is equipped with a dedicated solar heating system, almost guaranteeing the use of the swimming pool even for the summer shoulder-months, such as best part of April and October. We are now also pleased to inform all our guests that the new jacuzzi installation is complete and running. The idea behind this was to replace our 4 seater open Jacuzzi with one that actually holds 9 people; this walk-in construction also takes the shape of a cave rather than having to leave the pool to get to the Jacuzzi bringing a whole new meaning to luxury. The pictures were taken during the night to add to the affect of the new lighting fixtures in the harem chill-out seating area. There is also a water rainfall to the entrance of the jacuzzi to add to the tropical ambiance and feel of this vibrant place. In essence, the pool has been installed with a new liner; we have also replaced the lights in the pool with LED lighting, which also gives us the facility of altering the colour from blue, orange, red, green, purple, amber, and also a random selection of colours, making swimming at night a whole new experience altogether. The inside of the jacuzzi is constantly painted in a soft blue light, which is accentuated by the silver coloured tiling inside as this reflects off it during the night, perfectly complimenting eachother. The seating above the jacuzzi has been a real surprise as it turned out to be even better than what we had ever imagined it to be. Here we have placed garden furniture blending in perfectly to the setting. The frame to this area is fabricated out of wood with sack covering on top, giving it that harem feeling as you climb up the stairs and lounge in what is already a favourite area of many of our guests. At the same time, we have also replaced our chlorination system to one that is more green, as this not only eliminates the taste of chlorine but makes the water that much clearer, making it even more enticingly exciting.
