About David

Hi I am Marianne and by the help of my son David, we rent the apartment.

Why David chose Ħaż-Żabbar

This property is being rented out because it has Maltese charm and is popular with tourists wanting to see a Maltese side of life.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is in an area which is popular with locals, and at the same time close to all attractions in the southern part of the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Marianne is very nice and took care of us when we needed her help. The apartment was spotless when we arrived and there is everything for comfort (toaster, international tv channels, wifi internet, coffee machine, heater, etc.) The furniture is relatively new and Zabbar was also a nice place to discover.

Zabbar Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 4 adults and stayed in the apartment for 6 weeks. It was ideally situated for our purpose of catching up with family in Zabbar and surrounds and is within a couple minutes walk of the bus stop that can take you anywhere in Malta.

The apartment is exactly as listed, spacious and has all amenities provided to ensure a comfortable stay. It was spotlessly clean on arrival with an ample quantity of cleaning materials supplied. The airport transfers is a bonus and much appreciated.

The owner provided a complimentary bottle of their homemade wine which was one of the best wines we drank in Malta - a very nice touch.

There is no restaurants in Zabbar except for the takeaway shops that specialise in the local pastries - Pastizzis which is a must try. Marsascala is only a short bus ride with many restaurants by the sea. For those that want to self cater there is a supermarket within easy walking distance and the kitchen is well equipped and has a large fridge.

We would highly recommend this apartment and the service of the owners.

Very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

Nice modern apartment with everything you need. Not much going on in Zabbar itself after the shops shut - a few takeaways and some very small local bars. Essential you take a day or week bus ticket (only 6.5 Euro each for the week) and then you can get to see the sights and more touristy bits of Malta. Nice pavement cafes and restaurants in Markasala just down the road, Don't miss Mdina and the ferries over the two harbours are each great value and offer wonderful views of Valletta, Owners very helpful and pickup and dropoff service included helps a lot.

As good as it gets!!!

  • 5 of 5

I´m a spanish girl. I went to Malta on an Erasmus for three months. The first moment I saw the house on the webside I loved it but then when I arrived there...It was even better than it seems!

But the best thing is not the beautiful, spacious ,confortable flat with all its commodities, but the landlords. They are the best that I´ve ever had! So friendly, so attentive and they´ll make you feel at home.

If you want to have the best holidays or an unforgettable stay you must choose this option.

I´m sure you will not regret it.

Holiday Apartment in Zabbar-Property No.870099

  • 5 of 5

This apartment does exactly what it says on the web-site!

It is bright,spacious,airy,well equipped and well maintained; there are two small balconys, one of which catches the morning sun and the other catches the afternoon/evening sun. The apartment is on the second floor of a three story, very well maintained building and has excellant views over the roof-tops of Zabbar. The town of Zabbar itself is a busy, friendly place with a good selection of shops, mini-markets, take-aways etc. etc. This is a town that is well worth exploring! There are two bus stops( one at the bottom and one at the top) in the main street, maybe 100-200 yards from the apartment. The Arriva bus service can be a good, cheap and interesting way to get around Malta!

The owners of the apartment Julian and his mother Marianne( who does the airport pick-up/drop-off) were most friendly, welcoming and helpful.

For myself and my wife this was our first visit to Malta; we have travelled around the island and have seen a large number of the sights and attractions and have tried to get to "know" the island and its people. We have found some very good cafes, restaurants and shops; we have also found the prices everywhere to be very fair indeed. In fact we feel that Malta as a self-catering holiday destination could be one of the cheapest in the Mediterranean!

Myself and my wife would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone!!

superb apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is just as described. very spacious beautifully presented. it is easy to travel from Zabbar to anywhere on the island by bus so no car is needed. The shops in Zabbar close from 12 to 4pm so bear this in mind if you need milk etc. There is a very nice mini market just around the corner where despite not speaking a word of Maltese I managed to make friends with 3 ladies who were having a hot debate about the Maltese election. he people are certainly very friendly. And Marianna came at 5am on our last day to take us to the airport for an early flight. This was truly a bonus and we are very grateful for that. Thankyou for the use of your lovely apartment .

Owner's Response: Indeed, the Maltese people are friendly and many speak English and/or Italian. Shops can be found near the apartment and yes, they do close from noon to 4pm for a siesta. Taking tourists back to the airport or picking them from the airport early in the morning or late at night is part of our hospitality. We have traveled abroad and know that a guest really appreciates when s/he finds someone waiting for him/her/they at the airport. This is why we do it because we want our guests to be as comfortable and feel welcoming as possible.

Zabbar is a traditional Maltese village in the south of the island close to many tourist attractions. Experience living among the locals, whilst at the same time being close to tourist attractions.

Within a radius of 8 km, one can visit plenty of national landmarks such as Valletta (capital city, population: 7,000), the medieval three cities of Cottonera, the fishing villages of Marsaskala and Marsaxlokk, the Hypogeum, sandy & rocky beaches such as Pretty Bay, Kalanka, St Thomas Bay, Fort Rinella, Xrobb l-Ghagin Park, Vittoriosa Waterfront, etc. In Zabbar one can visit the Sanctuary Museum, the small town-square traditional market on Saturdays and the narrow streets of Misrah and Biccieni.

Zabbar is also well connected by bus with buses to Sliema, Valletta and Marsaskala every 15 minutes or less.
