Vince and his wife Laura are the most charming couple you can ever met. They picked us up at the airport and Laura even arranged herself to bring us back. The house is as lovely as on the pictures and i would add that it is even bigger! Everything was charming and and Malta is a country where there is a lot to see! I regret that we didnt took more time there : 5 days is not enough to see all of the tresures of the island! If we come back to La Valette, it will be at there lovely place!
Vince est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport pour notre arrivée . Il nous a indiqué où se trouvaient les commerces ainsi que les lieux de départs des bus. Laura son épouse a été très accueillante et nous a même fait goûter une de ses spécialités culinaires , elle nous a même donné sa (website hidden) maison était très agréable et conforme à la réalité. Vince est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport à notre arrivée. Il s'est même rendu disponible dés 4h30 pour notre départ !!. Quel formidable attention!! Bravo!!
Both Vince and Laura were wonderful hosts, even collecting me in the small hours of the morning from the airport and showing me around. . . where to get local transport from, food, groceries. Nothing was a problem to them. I felt very much at home and at ease with them. The pictures are very accurate of this townhouse of great character and centrally located.
Thank you for a great start to my first time in Malta . . . I will be back.
We had a great stay at Vince and Laura's home! Quick and clear communication up front, a guided tour around the neighbourhoud upon arrival, a house exactly as described, clean, with all amenities and free WIFI, located in a quiet area yet with easy acces to public transport and with a grocery store nearby. During our stay communication with Vince was really easy, and the ride to the airport at the end of our trip just shows Vinces kindness and hospitality.
We would definitely recommend this house to everyone!
The house is in a quiet street, close to everything. A shop where almost everything is available is around the corner. They are open till very late. Fresh fish, meat, vegetables can be found in different shops close by. And there is a Lidl about 1 km from the house. Bus stops are on a short walking distance to go everywhere.
I can hardly think of anything that is not in the house for your comfort. A fully equipped kitchen with quality equipment allows you to cook your own meals. The beds are very good, no back problems. And the courtyard is great to have breakfast when it is warm. Most remarkable is the fact that the house is like an art gallery.
Vince and Laura are the most remarkable hosts. They picked us up at the airport and brought us back. On arrival some essentials were in the fridge. Everything you need you can ask, they are living next door but are in no way intrusive. Thanks Laura for showing us the fish shop. We both had a very cosy evening with them with a very nice bottle of wine. Vince and Laura are really great-hearted and they will stay in our heart forever.
We stayed 3 weeks in in the house and visited almost everything in Malta, Gozo and Comino. It was a paradise for walking and a cultural highpoint in Europe. But reserve your tickets for the Hypogeum months in advance if you want to go!
As you already have understood, I can only recommend to stay in the house of Vince and Laura when coming to Malta.
We absolutely recommend Vince and Laura's apartment. First of all, they came to pick us at the airport in such a friendly and kind way after 10 pm, and they drove us to the apartment after showing us a little bit the neighbourhood. The apartment looks like in the pictures. All the amenities are there. You have small groceries nearby, and the Marina is just a few minutes by walk. They were absolutely fantastic!
Thank you Laura and Vince to make our stay so good! After two days in Barcelona, we just want to come back!
Vince and Laura were the most considerate and warm hosts. Their lovely house was full of amazing artwork and was situated in a tranquil neighbourhood. This stay has been one of our most memorable experiences. Hope to return soon!
