Guestbook comments from the manager

I travelled with a group of 6 people to Malta, staying at this apartment for 7 nights. It's located in Msida, and is a 2 minutes walk to the nearest bus stop and 5 minute stroll to the beautiful marina in Ta-Xbiex. Booking with the agent Ralph Vella was very straight-forward, and I found him very flexible to deal with - we had a couple of requests that he was able to accommodate without hassle. We opted for a taxi-transfer as arranged by the letting company, an inexpensive option if you are travelling as a group and takes the hassle out of having to locate the apartment on your own. A €200 security deposit was given to the agent and returned promptly on departure.



The apartment was exactly as described and there were no unexpected or hidden surprises. Located in a quiet residential area, the penthouse is on 2 levels - 3 good sized bedrooms (2 double, 1 single) and a bathroom on the lower level and the large open plan living space / kitchen area is accessible via a spiral staircase. Both the front and back balconies are found on the top level, off the living area. The views from the front balcony were outstanding - right across the south of Malta. There was also a brand new gas BBQ available for use which we took great pleasure in using on one occasion.



The apartment was in a good clean condition as we would have expected. Towels were provided. There is also free WiFi included in the rental.



Electricity is supplied through a pre-paid meter and we had around €55 credit on the meter when we arrived - this was included in the rental price. A €20 token was also provided in case we ran out - chargeable at the end of our stay if we used it. Regrettably we had to use all €75 of electricity credit... We put this down to the use of the air-conditioning which we used quite liberally throughout the week! This did not come as a surprise as the agent forewarned about the expense of the air-conditioning.



We found the location to be excellent and especially ideal if you are spreading your travels between both Valletta and Sliema - the bus takes you to both in 10 minutes either direction.



There is an excellent licensed convenience store called 'Damascus' right across the street which is open 7am-11pm and run by an English chap - you'll get all you need from there. There is also a fruit and veg store approximately 30 steps away, and a hairdressers across the road.



I would strongly recommend this apartment to families of 4-6 people. I cannot wait to go back to Malta in

Msida or Imsida is a harbour town in Malta with a population of 7,623. The town is located just west of Valletta on the northeast coast of Malta. The town enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry, sunny summers and short, cool winters.

The neighbouring towns of Msida are Ta' Xbiex, Gzira, Sliema, St.Julians, San Gwann, Birkirkara, Santa Venera, Hamrun and Pietà. Msida is an important town for all travellers as many of the country's bus routes pass through it.

The patron saint of Msida is Saint Joseph while the protector is The Holy Conception. For a week and a half in July, the town celebrates the feast of St. Joseph. The feast of Msida is also famous for its traditional game “Il-Gostra”.

The Mater Dei Hospital is located in the outskirts of Msida. It was inaugurated by the prime minister of Malta Dr. Gonzi in June 2007 and has a total floor area of 232,000m2 and approximately 8,000 rooms. It also houses a teaching facility for the University of Malta.

Its name comes from an Arabic word meaning 'a fisherman's dwelling'. However it could also be derived from the word 'Omm Sidna' meaning 'The Mother of Our Lord' since there could have been a small chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God.

Msida was previously an old fishing village. Although it is now more urbanised, some fishermen still operate in the village.

Msida became a parish in 1867. Then the settlement was centered around the hovels located inward at Valley Road, and some nearby ancillary roads and pathways which led up to the quaint district of Villambrosa. This status did not last long however, as a new parish Hamrun was hived off in 1881. Today the lowest part of Villambrosa Street remains a silent reminder of Msida's jurisdiction in this area.

In the late 19th century, a floating British navy hydraulic dock was also planned at the central part of Msida close to where the Torpedo Depot used to stand. The plan was soon aborted but instead, this area would in later years experience a booming yacht marina service, which has been growing ever since, thanks to new incentive policies issued by the central government.
