Our motto is to offer an accommodation of good standing so that this increases the entire holiday package which the lovely country of Malta has to offer to tourists.collect their customers from the airport and take them to the apartment situated in Bella Vista, Marsascala. On the way to the apartment, George and Cynthia show their customers the facilities which are available in this locality such as restaurants, shops, the bus terminus, etc. We furnished these apartments with to the highest standards.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I stayed in the lovely one bedroom penthouse apartment in the hot month of July and the place is very nice, clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. It even had a small bbq which we have only noticed in the cupboard above the oven half way though our stay; we even had a bag of coal and we were able to enjoy a couple of bbq's in the evening on the terrace enjoying the lovely views and the cooling breeze. The views from both terraces are stunning (photos don't do them justice)! Yes, the hill to reach the apartment is a bit steep to climb especially in the hot afternoons, but it is so worth being so high up as from the terraces you can see so much... absolutely amazing!!! George is very nice and friendly. It made a difference to be picked up from the airport and dropped back. Thank you George for the very nice place you have offered! We will for sure go back as we loved this island so much! Marsascala is a beautiful, relaxing, quiet.

Ruim appartement met fijne buitenruimte

  • 5 of 5

Dit ruime appartement (huisnummer 54) heeft een groot zonnig terras en ook, aan de andere kant, nog een kleiner balkon: je kunt altijd kiezen voor een plekje in de zon of in de schaduw. Die schaduw was op het zonnige Malta zelfs eind september nog wel eens prettig.

Er zijn drie slaapkamers, waarvan twee met airco. Gebruik van de airco is mogelijk met een kleine bijbetaling.

Er is een ruime open keuken met vierpits gasstel, goede oven en aparte magnetron. Er is een grote badkamer met bad, en een kleine badkamer met een douche.

Het appartement (penthouse) ligt op de vierde etage van een keurig onderhouden gebouw aan het eind van een doodlopende straat. Wij hadden geen last van buren of verkeer. Wifi in het appartement was uitstekend. Denk er aan dat Malta 'Engelse' stopcontacten heeft. Neem een verloopstekker mee.

Wij troffen het appartement vrij schoon aan en hebben er voor gekozen de eindschoonmaak te laten doen voor € 20.

Op dezelfde etage heeft de eigenaar nog een appartement (huisnummer 55), dat iets kleiner is.

De eigenaar, George Debono, is heel aardig en behulpzaam. Hij staat klaar met tips en doet erg zijn best om het zijn huurders naar de zin te maken.

Op loopafstand (met wel wat hoogteverschil) ligt het haventje van Marsaskala. Daar vind je ook diverse restaurants en dergelijke. Wij hadden een huurauto, maar bij de haven zijn ook bushaltes, waarmee je bijvoorbeeld snel in Valetta bent (buslijnen 92 en 93).

Je kunt trouwens heerlijk zwemmen in zee: in Marsaskala is gratis zwemgelegenheid binnen een afgebakend gebied. in september was het water 24 graden.

Wat ons betreft een aanrader!

When we arrived at the airport in Malta, we were picked up by a lovely man George. After a 15 min drive to Marsascala we arrived at the penthouse apartments. The place was as great looking as described in the advertisement and had an expensive even luxurious feel to it, the property was clean and tidy also. During our stay we found every amenity we could wish for. There was no need of calling George to ask about something, though he did offer his help when needed. And the view... :) it was such a pleasure to come back after a whole day of sightseeing and just relax on the terrace or the balcony with views of Marsascala or the countryside. If you like to eat out every once in a while, you can really find lots of different bars and restaurants near the bay which is just a 5 minute walk away. All in all you are in for a real treat if you choose this place to spend your time and money ;) I would definitely recommend these apartments to everyone who value quality in all things, because that's what these apartments are all about!

Rooms with a view

  • 4 of 5

We chose this apartment specifically because of the outside areas; at the rear of the property there was a large private terrace with a view of the countryside, and there was also a small terrace at the other end of the flat, off the kitchen, with a view over the roofs to the harbour and the sea beyond. George, the owner was very helpful and accommodating in picking us up from the airport, (and taking us back at the end), and he organised rental of bicycles for us too.

The property is accurately described, and in the heat of the day, there is a lovely breeze through the apartment. The kitchen is stocked sufficiently for you to cater at home, we ate in a couple of times, whilst admiring the fireworks going off in the distance.

The bed was comfortable, linens clean and tidy, There is aircon in the bedrooms, which is a bonus. This is charged as an extra, but worked out incredibly reasonable, and we used it every night. Wifi is provided at a charge but again, very reasonable, and no issues at all with connectivity.

The location is fine for able bodied people. The apartment is set quite high in the village, and there is quite a steep hill to get up to it. That's the price you pay for the views and the breezes. Not recommended for wheelchair users unless you have a car! For us, it was fine.

Marsacala is a lovely vibrant town, there is a small supermarket at the bottom of our hill which was very well stocked. We also found a butchers (Michael's) situated on the street behind the main restaurant road, his meat was delicious and very reasonable. There are also the fresh fruit and veg trucks on the harbour road daily.

Just spent 10 days unwinding @ Ta' Rosi. George and Cynthia were so welcoming and we were so well looked after by them throughout our stay. The apartment is just as, if not better than, described, and ideally located. You are minutes away, by foot, from the beautiful Harbour Side with it's small shops and restaurants. From here you can catch a bus to various parts of the island or go rambling/ sightseeing and swimming as we did. At the end of the day there was nothing better than relaxing on the large balcony, a glass of wine, magnificent views, superb sunset and watching the fireworks displays. Following this with a good, undisturbed, night's sleep..it is such a quiet peaceful area, a real bonus. Thanks again George and Cynthia.

Malta Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment clean and well maintained and spacious. it has two balconies one overlooking the harbour where we enjoyed nightly firework displays, the other watching the sun set whilst having our dinner. It was really a bonus for the owner George to collect and drop us back to the airport. Marsascala is a quiet area and has a small selection of shops a good quality butchers, fish from the quayside and fresh fruit and veg vans. With a good selection of restaurants. There is also a good lido within walking distance. The hill back to the apartment was a challenge some days but worth it for the views. We also made good use of the buses 12 euros for a weekly pass which were reliable and air conditioned. We would recommend this apartment if you enjoy a relaxing and quiet holiday.

Further Details:

MARSASCALA is an ancient fishing village (often referred to as M'Scala) with its picturesque bay that lies to the south-east of Malta. The Maltese call the area WIED IL-GHAJN (wid il ajn) and many Maltese families have summer homes there. In the holiday season it is buzzing with activity, much loved by locals and visitors alike. It sprawls at the feet of two hillsides descending from Zabbar and Zejtun. Its long U-shaped coastline and beach, its rocky promontories and its multicoloured fishing vessels give it lots of character. this is enhanced by a big variety of modern leisure facilities, restaurants and bars. Marsascala Bay used to extend deep into the valley to a cave with a natural spring of fresh water where old mariners took their water before sailing. This zone used to be a haven for Roman ships during their long period of occupation.
