“Comfortable accomodation away from the tourist crowds”

This apartment turned out to be the perfect place for my partner and I who were looking for accommodation as close as possible to other friends in St Thomas' Bay.

We found the pictures and description to be completely accurate, and it was very clean, well-furnished and in a safe area. It was nice to have Wi-Fi in the apartment as well.

Oswin and his family were very friendly and helpful, waiting at the apartment on our arrival. It was reassuring to know that they were not too far away if we needed any help. In fact, when we had some problems with the electrics, they were very prompt in dealing with the issue.

The apartment is about a 10 minute to the 'local' beach at St Thomas' Bay, where you can hire pedalos, or have a swim. There are also some local bars, and we can recommend 'Zion'. Although we hired a car to get around the island, the bus route is not far from the apartment.

Some people may be put off that it's a more 'homely' apartment, but we didn't find this a problem at all because it had everything we needed for our stay- we also were out quite a lot, enjoying swimming in the sea and having beach picnics!

We also liked being in a less 'touristy' environment, and everyone in the area is very friendly. A slight negative would be the noise of dogs barking at times, but I've found staying in resort hotels much noisier.

Stay here if you'd like a real Malta experience away from the hordes, but not if you want the all-inclusive resort!

“Good Location, Iffy Neighborhood”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I liked that I could walk less than 10 minutes to the beach. A 10 minute walk the other way got me to all the well reviewed restaurants. Contrary to the pictures previously posted on trip advisor, this apartment does NOT have a view. It is located in a neighborhood. This is not for novice travellers or resort lovers. You are in a neighborhood, in an apartment block, screaming children, barking dogs and all. Get the physical address from the owner. I had a difficult time explaining where to go to the taxi driver. I don't think most travellers want directions to the market as 'go through the empty lot, past the old cars'. I also don't need pictures of your children's first holy communion in the master bedroom. Air conditioner runs by remote, but the switch to turn each on is on the wall at the outlet. I am not a clean freak, but the used fly swatter laying on the kitchen counter by the toaster was too much for me.

“Convenient location, nice town, good local amenities”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Well equipped apartment, very conveniently positioned for beach, local restaurants (some excellent) etc. Accommodation not luxurious, but reasonably comfortable and good value for the money. Owner/family very helpful and friendly.

Only notable downside was a fairly high noise level with dogs barking and building work nearby. We were out and about most of the time, so this wasn't a big issue.

We did hire a car which made getting around the island easy, but there do seem to be lots of buses, and Marsaskala has a lot of restaurants etc. Overall, a very enjoyable holiday.

“Great Marsaskala location, homely feel and friendly owner”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

Oswin, the owner, was waiting at the flat on arrival. He was very friendly and welcoming. He showed us the flat, left us contact details and left us to it.
The flat itself has a homely feel - not a commercial one. This was not at all a problem for us. The air-con worked very well, the wifi stretched all over the flat and was fast and reliable and all other amenities worked fine. There are also two small balconies to sit or dry clothes on.
The location is situated almost exactly between St. Thomas Bay and the harbour with all the delicious sea front restaurants. They are about a 5 minute walk in either direction from the flat.
All in all, the description was accurate, the location great, the rate was good and the owner friendly, hence 5 stars.
