About the Owner

We have lived in St Julians for the past 4 years now. I am a Lecturer and my wife Sarah is a Nurse and we have twin boys, Matthew and Luke, aged 8.

We have been hosting guests and English students since the very 1st day we moved in 5 years ago.

We are a close knit family, we enjoy outdoor activities together, travelling when we can, swimming and spending what time we do have doing things as a family.

A perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment this holiday was booked we had great communication from the owner Mark. On arrival we were met at the airport despite being two hours late. We were a group four ladies attending a wedding. On the way to the property we were given a tour so that we could get our bearings. Then when we arrived we were overwhelmed by not only the apt but the extra things that had been supplied. Water, wine, crisps, milk, tea, coffee, cakes and all you could need. Honestly we were bowled over. The apt was beautiful. And the beds and pillows made for a good nights sleep. As for the breakfast....delicious is all I can say. A great choice offered. The location was perfect. Close to all amenities but in a quiet location. A bit of a walk but nothing too much. And we are all in our 50's. Finally when we said we would do our own breakfast the day after the wedding all we could need was placed in the fridge. Fantastic! Its also worth noting that water and toilet rolls were constantly replenished.

If you are looking to stay in Malta I can't recommend this enough. A beautiful family providing the best for their guests.

A great big thank you Mark, Sarah, Matthew and Luke. We will make sure we come back. Loved every minute.

Lovely family, very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was spotless and well maintained. Mark and Sarah were very friendly and accommodating and went out of there way to tend to our needs. Ideal location as it was only a five minute walk to Spinola bay, where there is a bus stop with an excellent service to get you around the island which we took full advantage of. The apartment has every facility you need just like a home from home including cooking utensils. I would defiantly stop there again and recommend this apartment to others.

Perfect Stay in the Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which was tastefully renovated and in beautiful shape. The bathroom was clean, modern and had good hot water pressure. The kitchen was well stocked, as was the rest of the apartment. The hosts were lovely and provided any information that we needed.

The real icing on the cake, were the extra perks provided by the lovely hosts. Upon arrival there was bottled water (which was replenished), a welcome bottle of wine, and fresh fruit on the table. They provide a multitude of choices for your breakfast, including fresh chocolate croissants! Every few days they refreshed the towels, and they even let us do a load of laundry during our stay.

There was air conditioning (which we didn't need to use in May) as well as fast, reliable wifi.

The location was easily walkable down to the Spinola Bay area, or with a bit further of a walk (about 15-20 minutes) to the beach area at St. George's Bay.

We would highly recommend this apartment and would stay again when we return to Malta.

Owner's Response: Thank you guys for such a wonderful review it was pleasure having you both. There are many nicer properties on the island I am sure but we do our utmost to make whoever stays with us an enjoyable one. I am glad we were of assistance when required and the bottled water, fruit, wine etc are just part of the service when guests stay with us, I am always trying to find ways of improving the service we provide. I hope we have the opportunity of one day returning to Canada and if we do we will be sure to look you up just as you are more than welcome to stay with us. Again in the future, many thanks again for a wonderful review.

A wonderful friendly first visit to Malta

  • 5 of 5

A very well maintained property, clean, regularly serviced, comfortable bed with all necessary mod cons and more. Owners extremely friendly on hand if required, providing lots of information about Malta. Our breakfasts were amazing, great selection, well prepared with a personal touch. A very pleasant easy walk into the main part of St. Julian's from the house. St. Julian's the best area in Malta, great shops, restaurants and waterfront. The Feast of St. Julian's a highlight of our visit a great celebration. Overall the service was far beyond expectations and the accommodation lived up to its name by being very quite and restful. Highly recommended.

5 Star 2nd Stay!

  • 5 of 5

2nd time staying at Tranquility. The apartment is a great base to explore the Island. It is a few minutes walk from St Julians which is always busy and has a number of great restaurants. The apartment itself was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The fridge was stocked with water and milk and fresh fruits were provided at no extra cost. We chose the breakfast option for our stay. Mark and Sarah provided a continental or a cooked breakfast. They were very flexible with our dietary needs and accommodating when we wanted to eat breakfast in the apartment. We hired a car for our stay. There is ample parking available.

Overall we were very happy with our stay and Mark, Sarah and the boys made us feel like family.

Thanks again for a memorable time in Malta and going the extra mile for us!

A Home from Home

  • 4 of 5

The photos do not do the apartment justice. The property was very clean and all facilities are available if you're on a tight budget and want to eat in and relax. Great location and only 5 minutes from a vibrant St Julians' centre.

There is a great advantage to living next door to these owners. They are a great friendly family who went out of their way to make our stay unforgettably enjoyable. Their knowledge of Malta is vast and they recommended many great days out and good restaurants. Better than any guide book.

An added bonus is that breakfast is also included with a choice of Continental or Full English which can be varied each day.

We hired 2 cars and there is adequate parking opposite the apartment.

We would recommend this apartment to friends and family as it was a perfect stay and is central to the island. We hope to stay again.

Location

From the Owner

We bought this property because we loved the location, the size and what the property has to offer. We are located in a peaceful location yet minutes away from St Julian’s and Sliema. We bought this property in 2010 in shell form meaning we had to do all the internal works i.e. water and electricity, plastering, painting, tile laying and furnishing. It took us one year to finish this property and we are still till this day finishing the finishing touches to our property. We called our home 'Tranquillity' as it is in such a quiet location and very peaceful.
