Wonderful stay- loved this experience

  • 5 of 5

My partner, my daughter and I recently spent a lovely holiday in Sliema at Alex and Erika's flat. The location was perfect- close to everything- site seeing, great restaurants, shopping etc. Alex thoughtfully booked a taxi for us to and from the airport. He met us at the flat and gave us a warm welcoming, as well as familiarising us with the accommodations, which were clean and nicely decorated! Alex suggested places to see and things to do which proved very helpful. That was my first trip to Malta and I honestly can't wait to go back. It was a fabulous holiday and I truly would recommend staying at Alex and Erika's holiday flat to anyone! What a great place, perfect location and fantastic hospitality! Thank you very much!

A fantastic place to stay in Malta

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well located and super convenient to maintain. The apartment is bright, airy and quiet. It has a small balcony, which allows you to leave the doors open and have the pleasant sensation of being in a house. Is close to market, restaurants, bars and all the local shops. You can do everything on foot, there is no need for a car. In addition, the owners are extremely kind and accessible. The internet works fine. Surely, when I return to Malta I'll be back in the apartment.

Central,convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

The property description was as described. A centrally located apartment close to the seafront (uphill coming back)and handy for the supermarkets.A local fruit and veg market right outside, a couple of days a week. The bathroom is new, incorporating the washing machine. Kitchen also has some new appliances. Adequate space and storage in the bedrooms. The apartment is in a block of 6 mostly residential, so quiet. 2nd floor and no lift, so 2 flights of stairs to go up. Having said all that we found it suitable for the 3 weeks we were there and you get what you pay for. The owner is on hand should you need anything and is very helpful. We even got taken to the airport! Would certainly stay there again.

Spacious, nice and perfectly located apartment

  • 5 of 5

Dear Erika, dear Alex,

we would like to join in our commentary on your apartment all those who rated it with five stars and thank you for your hospitality, your help and kindness.

We stayed here the last six and a half weeks and found everything we needed, even toys for our children.

We recommend your apartment to everybody who is looking for a clean, well-equipped and spacious flat from which one can fast and easily reach supermarkets, restaurants, bakery, ferries, bus stops, seafront, fantastic playgrounds and much more.

Our special thanks to you for an unforgettable trip around Malta and many useful tips you gave to us.

We hope to come to Malta again (and again) and - who knows - maybe one day our children will go out in Paceville together :).

This apartment is well situated for the ferries, buses, promanade and shops. The facilities are good and the apartment nice and clean. Alex the owner was very helpful, even doing our transfers from and to the airport. He was easy to deal with via email and all aspects of renting this apartment was effortless. We will definately return in the future
