The apartment was exactly as described!! Everything was clean and it was exactly what we were looking for. It was our first visit to Malta and we have truly fallen in love with the island.... so much, that we are organising a holiday to go back next year.
Eleni was very friendly and incredibly helpful, she provided us with information about the local grocery stores, buses, shop opening hours etc. Eleni was always available with any queries we had.
Communication with Jo has also been fantastic and all information we have needed to know has been provided.
The location of the apartment was very close to the bus station, which can take you anywhere on the island and it was also lovely walking to Sliema following the promenade.
There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs all in walking distance from the apartment. The price is just right and we definitely consider staying here again when we return to Malta. :)
All the local people are incredibly nice, friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome to be there.
We send our grateful thanks to Eleni and Jo for allowing us to stay at the apartment. :)
Jo arranged for Eleni to take care of us during our stay and it was so wonderful. Eleni has made everything comfortable and clean during our stay and she also offered a lot of suggestions and places for us to visit when we were in Malta. She made sure to carefully explain to us all the features of the place (which was fully furnished and equipped) and also about the different bus routes we could take. She also went out of her way to print our boarding passes for our return flight home because we had some problem with our original (website hidden) also helped us to book a taxi to the airport on our last day as it was an early flight. I would definitely recommend staying at this place and the apartment is also very spacious for 2 people! Will come back again if I have the opportunity. Thank you Eleni and Jo!
I had some good preliminary exchange with Jo prior to our coming to Malta and was kindly hosted on D-day by Eleni, the apartment caretaker. Since I speak Greek (a litlle) I had a good friendly exchange with Eleni who is of greek origin.
We stayed a full week at Jo's apartment. It is as shown on the pictures of the Web site and proved to be very comfortable due to its very large size and the availability of all necessary appliances and accessories to do your own cooking. The wifi also worked extremely well which is a real plus.
It is also conveniently located, just a few minutes walk to 2 or 3 bus stops to take you to Valetta in one direction or to Sliema and St Julian in the other direction (less then 15 minutes ride in both cases).
If you happen to also rent a car as we did you will very easily find places to park after 5:00 pm when returning from your excursion of the day since it is a business district and most employees will have left the area to go home.
The price we paid was very good and helped us keep our budget Under control. To be honest though with future guests one has to be aware that the apartment is very noisy due to the fact that it overlooks a busy street and that the window isolation is very minimal ... however the bedroom located on the back side of the building is very quiet which insures good nights of sleep.
All in all we enjoyed our stay at Jo's apartment and our visit to Malta !
We had a great time in Malta! The apartment was just as described, with good public transport and grocery shopping possibilities within 5 minutes walk. The check in went smoothly, Eleni was super nice and she explained us everything we needed to know about the flat and the neighbourhood. There is a fantastic little Italian restaurant on the coast called Pizza Amore E Fantasia! And don't miss visiting Gozo, especially if you like hiking.
Séjour plus qu'agréable , l'appartement est très spacieux, confortable et propre ! Tout est équipé , et du pain et une bouteille d'eau vous sont offerts a votre arrivée .
L'appartement se situe proche de nombreux arrêts de bus ( y compris celui de l'aéroport ), et proche de la capitale (website hidden) est très gentille , agréable et attentive à nos petits soins .
Je recommande vivement cet appartement pour votre futur séjour à Malte !
