“Terrific place, great service”
Reviewed 9 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed a month in Aqua during January/February. The furniture and kitchen are of higher quality than many flats we have rented. Although located on the 4th floor, the elevator opens directly into the 1st floor of the flat (secured by a key) making the flat ok for people who do not like stairs. However, the second floor of the flat is only accessible via a curved staircase within the flat. There is lots of light courtesy of the floor to ceiling Windows and sliding glass doors on both levels. There's also balconies on both levels - with the upper large enough for deck chairs, a table and a gas grill.

The location is great. The view of St. Paul's Island and the bay is terrific. There's small stores within a couple of blocks and larger stores on Mosta Road (perhaps 6-8 blocks). We found a butcher, a couple of fish markets, a bakery and a green grocer nearby, so we had plenty of fresh groceries. Restaurants are only 7-10 doors down, with many more in the area. Busses are easy to catch close by. Walking is very safe.

We can't say enough about the service we received from Paul and Josanne. Their timely responses to inquiries prior to arrival and also after we were here made us feel at ease. The pick-up at the airport was perfect. There was a small issue with one of the toilets during our stay and Paul had a plumber over ASAP (and Paul accompanied him).

We were told that the weather was exceptional for this time of year, but most days were 15C/60F. The space heater took the chill out of the flat when needed during the evenings. It was also nice to have both a washer and dryer at this time of year. After line drying I would pop the clothes in the dryer a bit to do the final drying.

We would definitely rent Aqua (or any other of Paul and Josanne's places) again.

“Fantastic Views”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a great apartment it is on 2 levels and has a bedroom, toilet and a balcony on each level. This is great as it gives you plenty space. The apartment is well furnished has Wi-Fi and is well equipped with everything you need. The views from the balcony are fantastic and we enjoyed sitting there in the afternoons. Paul our host was great, he arranged transport for us and was contactable and helpful during our stay. There are a couple of great restaurants on the doorstep I would recommend eating there. I will definitely visit again and have already recommended this apartment to my friends.

“Another Christmas in Malta”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Once again we travelled to Malta for another Christmas break and this time stayed for almost three weeks at St Paul’s Bay in “Aqua”. Despite the worst Malta Christmas weather for 25 years the situation and apartment more than made up for any disappointment. Looking out across St Paul’s Bay in the morning is wonderful with the small harbour and fishing boats in the foreground. The apartment on two levels is spacious and with the two balconies, there is good outside seating area.

The immediate St Paul’s Bay and Buggiba area has all the facilities one needs without being too imposing and the bus station a short walk away gives easy access to all areas of the island.

Managers Josanne, Paul and son Nathaniel are available via the installed telephone should any problems occur (not that any will arise in this well maintained apartment); the attention they give to their guests is second to none.

We highly recommend this accommodation which is excellent in every respect and we thank Josanne, Paul and Nathaniel for another great stay - we will return!

“Magnificent sea-view, relaxed quiet atmosphere and an excellent service”
Reviewed 4 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Aqua is a splendid Penthouse apartment with a magnificent seaview, where the jetty/pier in the front and the boats inside it, are giving an extraordinary perspective to the landscape. We were only two of us, Heidi and Leo, but the penthouse apartment with an elevator entrance directly to the fourth floor could easily have served us earlier, when we had 5 children around, or why not together with a couple among our best friends. The different floors with two main bedrooms, separate bathrooms and a balcony and a terrace, give you enough space for privacy you need.

St. Paul's Bay is a pleasant place in early November, with no hectic traffic and people around, who enjoyed to be out relaxing in the warm and gentle temperature of 21-22 Celsius degrees after noon. We strolled quite a lot around , at the waterfront promenade, but also walking across the Island in south north direction from Bahrija to Saint Paul's Bay and hiking from Mellieha, along the ancient Triq san Pawl to the Neolithic tombs in Xemxija, (you need hiking shoes), and further home to the Seacliff Aqua apartment . We also could enjoy the sunshine and sunset on the terrace in the late afternoon about two hours, which was quite sufficient for us.

Our stay was relaxing due to the good circumstances and last but not least, due to the excellent service we got from our hosts: Josanne, Paul and Nathaniel Camilleri, who took care of all our logistic problems in an extraordinary service-minded way. They made it perfect.
