This larger than average, modern 1 bedroom apartment is situated a minute walk from the Yacht Marina in Ta' Xbiex (pronounced Ta Shbish). It is close to all amenities and public transport links.
This property enjoys a large open plan kitchen living and dining area with a modern kitchen. It has a large double bedroom with lots of wardrobe space, a separate bathroom with full bath and hand-held shower and separate washroom/utility room with washing machine.
The neighbouring town, Sliema, is also within walking distance and has all the best restaurants, bars and cafes of Malta.
Other Things to Note
Electricity at this property is provided via card meter which will have sufficient credit for your stay. Extra credit will be provided against payment of 10 euros per card. Any unused amount left on the meter at checkout is non-refundable.
Smoking allowed only on the balcony not indoors.
The apartment is in a convenient location for exploring beautiful Malta on foot and by using public transport. What you see is what you'll get. It has all the amenities you'll need, even for a longer stay, and it is rather large by Airbnb standards (which is not necessarily a good thing during Winter). It is also one of the least expensive apartments we could find that fitted our criteria. You just need to be careful with power consumption, as you will need to pay for excess usage (just as noted in the apartment description, with no hidden costs). Our host, Eleni, was rather pleasant as well, so all-in-all, we were happy with the apartment and would definitely stay there again. Thanks, Nikica.
Un très bon accueil. Un appartement très bien situé. Les arrêts de bus sont à proximité. Tout est prévu dans l'appartement. Le système de la carte pour l'électricité est une bonne chose et l'eau chaude est très chaude. Beaucoup de documents à dispisition pour préparer les visites. Merci pour l'accueil et les petits gâteaux.
Nice, cozy and well-furnished flat in a good location. Easy access to public transport, 10 minutes to Valletta by bus, airport bus departs 200m from Jo's place. Defenietely to be recommended.
From the get go, Jo was fantastic about booking me on especially as it was very last minute on my behalf. Her emails were always warm, welcoming and informative.
Upon arriving at the flat, Eleni met me with great hospitality and the flat is all that you would want it to be! Exact to its descriptions, it's spacious, well laid out and comfortable. Location is perfect as bus stops are a skip away and Sliema, Valleta and onwards being very accessible.
As I was around over the Christmas holidays, Jimmy and Eleni graciously made me their native Greek sweets which really touched me! They're thoughtful and willing to help with anything necessary.
For anyone coming to Malta for the first time or for a revisit, I highly recommend this flat and the amazing hosts!! Truly felt right at home and will certainly come back for a visit!!
We were welcomed and we felt really like at home. There was some complementary bread, butter, tea, coffee, sugar and some spices. There were also some brochures and leaflets about tourism options there. The apartment is really huge and there is everything that you may need including hair dryer and iron. It looks exactly like in pictures.
What at first seemed to me problematic - you need to turn the water heater on some 30-60 minutes before you take a shower, however, at the end I realised that this is not a problem as the water stays warm for quite a long time - if you turn the heater in the evening, in the morning there will still be warm water. Not hot, but sufficiently warm to take a shower.
The pre-paid 10EUR electricity card was not enough for us (stayed for a week) as we were cooking a lot, using washing machine several times and we turned on water heater 2x a day. But I find that extra 10EUR was ok to pay for that.
The place, where apartment is situated, is very convenient - you've got buses going all directions (we didn't have to change buses if we wanted to get somewhere), cafes are very close, grocery stores also around the corner. There are night ladies working, however, they didn't disturb us in any way.
Definitely recommend Jo's apartment for your stay in Malta!
Siamo una coppia di 45enni che hanno soggiornato per una settimana presso l'appartemento di Jo. L'accoglienza è stata frugale ma gentile e, anche se non abbiamo mai incontrato Jo, lo stesso è stato molto puntuale nelle risposte via email. Hilena, la signora del piano di sopra incaricata da Jo di fare la padrona di casa, si è rivelata una persona molto disponibile e cordiale. Il quartiere invece, ahinoi, si è rivelato molto degradato tanto che "le lucciole brillano anche di giorno". Infatti, le donnine, sono sedute su di uno sgabello proprio di fronte al portone d'ingresso e l'intero stabile è di fatto una casa chiusa...sempre aperta (di notte a volte si sentono pure schiamazzi e urla). La strada principale è molto rumorosa e maltenuta ma gli infissi, tutto sommato, ci hanno protetto rendendoci il silenzio necessario per dormire la notte. Ad ogni modo i servizi (bus, supermarket, minimarket ecc) sono davvero molto vicini e la zona è, turisticamente parlando, molto animata. L'appartamento rispecchia in pieno le immagini anche se i materassi e le forniture della casa sarebbero da sostituire. Un'altra pecca è il modem di connessione ad internet che purtroppo cedeva ogni 5\10 minuti e che rendeva davvero noiosa la navigazione. Abbiamo trovato invece molto comodo il divano. La qualità prezzo è comunque positiva e ringraziamo Jo dell'ospitalità.
We stayed 4 week-nights in this lovely appartment. We were given clear directions & instructions by email, then given a warm welcome by the host's neighbour who showed us round the appartment.
The neighbourhood is central with lots of nearby bus routes which run until quite late in the evening. You can even walk to Valetta if you're up for a walk in nice weather. The area felt safe and the rooms were perfectly kitted out for our stay, including towels, tea, coffee etc. The water pressure's quite low but there's reliable hot water and good wifi, as well as cooking equipment and a TV - if you're not out enjoying the many restaurants within easy reach! Recommended, excellent value-for-money appartment in a good location.
I love to travel and my experiences make me familiar with the needs of travellers so I strive to make my apartment as comfortable as possible for my guests when visiting our beautiful island :).
