vacation rental description

Period circa 100 year old Maltese 'townhouse' property full of charm and character features including stone flagstones and patterned tiles, wooden beams, stone walls and ceilings and stone staircases which has been tastefully modernised to high specifications to provide a comfortable home.

Characterful Maltese pieces adorn the property inside and out to provide a unique ambience.

Accommodation consists of sitting/living room complete with TV (cable service) and iPod docking station, study nook, combined kitchen and dining room complete with all utensils, toaster, kettle, coffee-grinder, crockery/cutlery/glassware and Siemens and Gaggenau built-in appliances (dishwasher, side-by-side fridge/freezer, double hung oven, microwave & 6-gas burner cooktop), full bathroom featuring antique bath set on stone claws, laundry (washing machine & dryer, iron & ironing board) and arched undercover area leading to garden abundant with citrus, olives, bird of paradise and sardinella on the ground floor.

A grand wrought iron and stone staircase takes you to the second floor, where you will find two generous sized bedrooms (1 double bed, 1 with 2 single beds) both with their own ensuites and private balcony/terrace, the main bedroom with stunning direct sea views and the second with views over the garden and surrounding countryside/village.

A stone spiral staircase from the second floor takes you to the roof area, where you can sit and view the uninterrupted sea and promenade views all the way along the stunning waterside quay.

Fantastic restaurants and cafe's are on your doorstep; you can order in a cappuccino and enjoy it in your own garden. Fishing and water activities are also on your doorstep as you are at the centre of the island's unique fishing village and can buy (or catch yourself) your lunch or dinner and cook it up yourself, or sample the 'catch of the day' at one of the village's renowned fish restaurants. Ramble through the streets, where fishermen tend their nets or stroll along the promenade and catch the local gossip, or meander through the markets and buy your souvenirs or local olives and fresh cheese as an appetiser.

"Absolutely amazing"

Review submitted: July 2, 2014   Date of arrival: June 3, 2014

We had such a good time staying in the gorgeous house of Jes & Angela. The place has been furnished and decorated with a lot of taste. The view from our bedroom window was just staggering: all the colourful luzzu boats in the little harbour were just a couple of metres from our bedroom! I would certainly book it again. I would come again. Parking is easy and free of charge just opposite the house except for sundays when there is a big market going on which for the "shoppaholics" among us is a real el dorado. We tried out about 5 restaurants in the street and they were all good. Our preference however went to "Mathews" in the same street in the harbour. We especially enjoyed the evenings in the harbour when all the tourists were gone. This place still has a very authentic atmosphere wich we found nowhere else on the island. This property is a real gem, both in terms of location and in terms of cleanliness, layout and facilities. For us as a couple it was just perfect. I'll never forget it! This place deserves 5stars !

Wonderful - met all my expectations.

Review submitted: April 26, 2014   Date of arrival: April 15, 2014

Had a wonderful stay in Angela & Jes's maisonette. Every was provided towels etc., kitchen was excellently kitted out, Claudine their local caretaker was very helpful. Weather was great. We loved the area, plenty of good food in the town, next door Cafe de Paris was very handy & great value. There is a small sandy beach 5 minutes walk to the right. There is also a pleasant walk to Peter's Pools - no sand but plenty of jumping & diving. We rented a car to explore the island, parking is easy & free right in front of the apartment - except for Sunday's Market. We will be back!

Owners response: Thanks for the lovely review - we look forward to welcoming you back! We strive to make our home an escape from the everyday. We pride ourselves on the uniqueness of our home over others in the area as it retains it rustic characterful roots but includes modern amenities with relaxation and comfort in mind. We've delighted in furnishing our home with up-cycled rustic vintage and antique Maltese furniture, intermixed with modern pieces to present a holiday home with a sense of fun, charm and character. If your looking to stay in a great home with waterfront views, all amenities on your doorstep, in the most photographed 'traditional Maltese fishing' village on the island - then our home is for you!

Dear Coby
We hope that you enjoyed your stay in Malta taking in all the beautiful sights. We also hope that our home fulfilled all the expectations you had and made your stay just that much better. Please let us know, and do have a safe trip home.

Coby's response:
Yes indeed! We enjoyed our stay in lovely Malta. We think we have seen the whole island plus Gozo. Because of the weather (sunny and rainy) we could do inside and outside activities. We were impressed of the great history and all that is left to be experienced. Your home is wonderful and we felt like real Maltese citizens. We loved your neighbours (Café Paris) and their hospitality and we spend a few times at their terrace (in the morningsun) and enjoyed lovely fresh fish in the evening in the Café. Also Claudine was very kind and made us feel at home immediately.

Thank you for everything! So we give our twelve points to Malta!
