Attractive Duplex Apartment in Sliema with private, spacious sun terrace
average rating of 4.25 based on 29 reviews

Attractive apartment close to the center of activities

  • 4 of 5

On the 5th floor you get a lovely start of the day overloking Sliema harbour and especially enjoy your own weatherforecast.

The sun terrace is just outside the kitchen (which is one staircase above the rest of the apartment) which allows for all kind of meals incl a good oven. In the Oct-Nov shift it can be a little windy outisde but indoors with open doors you get the full outdoor feeling without the wind and can easily move back and forth between in- and outside.

The Wifi was satisfactory. TV had a lot pf Channels in both English (CNN and eg BBC) and Italian.

The owner Jill was very helpful when we needed more info given rapid answers on mail. Of course there are minor things we would like to have adjusted or added. This is informed to Jill and with her constructive attitude we expect her to continue to improve the apartment to the benefit of her international guests and of course her own living here. As an example as at least senior people we would like better lamps to make reading easy.

The apartment is very fresh and modern. You will find this a good choice for a vacation in the fantastic island of Malta which we appreciated for two weeks here.

Loved our stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this apartment in the middle of October. It pretty much did live up to expectations from the photos and information on the Owners Direct website. Our communication with Jill from the outset was excellent. Prior to our stay she sent us a very comprehensive email with what to see, where to go and where to eat etc. She also arranged the taxi from the airport. The location of the apartment was excellent, practically in the thick of it but still quite quiet. Our only reason for not giving 5 stars is the staircase which other people have mentioned. It is quite steep and narrow. And the water pressure in the shower was very low. Once you've navigated the staircase however, the kitchen and outside space is amazing. We spent quite some time up there. Overall, we thought this apartment was excellent value for money and we would happily stay there again

Very good

Great location, private roof terrace, great decor. Couple of drawbacks, narrow spiral staircase to kitchen and roof terrace and no air conditioning, but there are 2 large fans. Owner was very easy to deal with.

Fantastic top floor duplex apartment

  • 5 of 5

Superb apartment with excellent roof terrace and views across the Sliema harbour. Very close to all amenities and restaurants. Jill was extremely helpful with her advice and recommendations.

Trip in from the airport was painless as taxis always available, even after midnight. You will not be disappointed.

Very clean, well presented property in an excellent position

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this apartment as it was clean, tidy and well equipped with lovely terraces to enjoy the sunshine. It was well positioned in Sliema but one street back from the front, so nice and quiet. Very convenient for the restaurants and the strand to catch the ferry to Valletta or for other travel facilities (hop-on hop-off buses, cruises etc). Great base to enjoy the island.

Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful Apartment for a week in March. We could not fault it or Jill the owner.

The Apartment was spotlessly clean, with lovely bedding and towels, we even had a choice of blankets or summer or winter tog duvets. You don't have that choice in many places.

Communication with Jill was excellent, she answered all our questions promptly by email or over the telephone and arranged transport for us with Wembleys,

the taxi company who were brilliant.

The Apartment had beautiful views from the roof terrace, there are also 4 other small balconies with different views.

The weather was dry and sunny while we were there which was a bonus. It was cold in the evening, but it was only March,we were prepared for that and took warm coats. The Apartment has 2 portable oil fired radiators which were very efficient .

The Strand is only 2 minutes walk from the Apartment, where there are excellent restaurants, our favourite one is Portopalo, we also found a lovely little coffee shop on the strand which was part of the Bayview hotel, the cakes were delicious .

The bus stops and the ferry stop to Valletta is on the strand only a few minutes walk from the Apartment.

We used the local bus a lot to Valletta and further afield.

We also did a harbour cruise and the north tour on one of the hop on hop off buses.

We had an amazing holiday and would recomended the Apartment to anyone.

Thank you Jill for sharing your lovely home with us.

Although there are no sandy beaches in Sliema, sunbathing is predominantly from rocky platforms surrounded by warm rock pools, just a short walking distance from the Apartment. There is a small beach in St George's Bay, however more variety to the North of the Island, easily accessible by local transport. A short bus ride will take you to Malta's most popular beaches at Mellieha Bay, Paradise Bay and Golden Bay. On the approach Road to Mellieha a sign to Anchor Bay leads to a pretty little sandy bay and 'Popeye Village' where 'Popeye' the movie was filmed.


The Airport is approximately 15 minutes away. Taxis are readily available on arrival or can be pre-booked in advance with the Owner, fare payable locally.

In addition, Wembleys is a very reliable Taxi Company who not only provide a 24 hour service, but also guided tours of the island in their air-conditioned vehicles, 00356 2137 4141. (Fares are normally cheaper than 'white taxis').

Car hire is available locally and relatively cheap. (Be warned that the quality of driving may be a little erratic).


Ferries and Water Taxis depart from Sliema to Valletta taking just minutes to cross the Harbour. Alternatively, local transport travels all over the Island for, currently, just 6.50 Euros for a 7-Day ticket, available at the Airport or locally. 'Hop-On', 'Hop Off' buses are also an easy way to explore this fascinating Island and these travel both North and South. Check with the booking agent as many include a Harbour cruise with the day ticket.

Further Details:

There are many small shops nearby selling local produce, groceries and a variety of household goods. These are convenient for stocking up on essentials, however, prices tend to be higher than the 'Tower' or 'Scotts' supermarkets. Both are conveniently situated in the centre of Sliema, and deliveries can be arranged if orders are in excess of 50 Euros.

A full information pack has been compiled for easy reference. This contains local information and provides a comprehensive guide to places of interest, restaurants, entertainment, maps,

bus time-tables and personal recommendations.
