Interaction with Guests
I will meet them on arrival unless I am away. If it`s a late arrival I suggest that I book the taxi so I can send the keys with the driver and I will meet them the following morning.
Everything is within walking distance, the mini market is across the road, the seafront is round the corner,best bars and clubs are also two corners away. Great location & neighbour hood. I can also organise English courses since school is nearby.
It`s very well located and very easy to get to places and swimming areas.
Other Things to Note
Very charming home. Air condition is at an extra charge of 10.00 per day.
Respect the neighbours. No loud parties after 11pm please..
Vanessa was nice and arranged everything for our arrival. The flat is a bit dark but spacious and also have this little outise terrace/garden which is very nice.
The only problem was also because of this garden...the cockroaches that were living there and a bit with us during this week !
Nous avons passé un bon sejour a malte, malgre la mauvaise odeur de renferme dans l'appartement. De plus nous avons eu des problemes avec l'électricité et le gaz. La climatisation était de 10euros par jours. Le ventilateur du salon ne marchait pas. Cependant vanessa a été a l'ecoute et agréable, elle a sus regler les problèmes rapidement.
Hi, thanks for the review.. with regards to the aircondition fee it is stated in the description prior to booking. The electricity bulb was changed immediatley and when the gas finished it was also changed immediatley as stated above. With regards to the smell it`s important to air the place when there are 7 people in a two bedroom property especially in the heath so it helps to leave the back door leading to the garden open :-) thanks V
La descrizione della casa era realistica e anche le foto. Casa molto accogliente e pulita e anche Vanessa è stata disponibile e gentile, anche per un piccolo disguido con il bagno è subito intervenuta.
Consiglio la casa, anche perchè è in una posizione centrale, vicina alle fermate degli autobus, comoda a negozi e supermercato, vicina anche al ferry per La Valletta.
The location of the apartment is good, well served by public transport, shops and market.
We never saw our host because he was traveling. We had difficulty in getting in touch with her to solve problems in the house.
For example, the cleaning was not very good, dust on the furniture and on the floor. The sheets of the first room were clean, but those in the second room were dirty and we washed them. We hadn't towels for each guest, but when we hade request to the host by sms to carry same for us, the next day we have found it.
We haven't find any kind of soap, hand soap and shampoo.
In my past experiences with airbnb I have always have found the main things for the stay.
We bought all the soaps as well as for washing dishes and left them in the house so the next guest could use them.
The toilet of the first room was full of bugs and it is without windows to the outside, so it smelled of damp from the first day. The other two toilets were ok.
The shower in the courtyard didn't work because the drain was clogged from the earth.
I sent an sms to solve the problems of the bugs and big cockroaches that we have found in the house, but I never received any answer.
In conclusion, if the house had not been cleaned for well we had a good stay, but unfortunately it was not so.
Dear Francesco, Thanks for your constructive critisim which I will see too and I am sorry about this mishap but may I point out that I only received two messages from you which I always replied to even if they were sent at 1 am in the morning. I provided linen,towels & toilet paper for all, you just requested a second set of towels and more toilet rolls for your whole stay which were provided the following day , there was no mention of dirty sheets or dusty floors which I would have seen to immediatley. I was advised about the cleaning two days prior to your departure & I offered to send you the maid but you never (website hidden) bugs, the house is controlled by special insecticides since it has a garden as I have no control over bugs or mosquitos, they die the minute they enter the house due to this insecticide, all windows and doors have insect screens so it`s important to keep them closed . Thanks again for pointing these issues out & I will see to them immediatley.
We rented Vanessa's house. 'La marocaine' In Sliema, for a week. The communication with Vanessa was excellent; fast responses and very helpful.
Vanessa offered to arrange the taxi from and to the airport. The company: 'ecabs' picked us up. A little bonus was the free WiFi in the cab and a very friendly driver ''Frans''
The house was clean at arrival and fully equipped with all the things you would expect, kitchen ware, sheets, toilet paper, house-instructions and allot of (updated)tourist information. Vanessa also provided some anti muscito appliances.
The only thing I missed was: soap to wash my hands.
The neighborhood was quite and nearby handy facilities like: A mini supermarket at the end of the street where you could get the basics needs: bread, water, soda etc. And 200 meters away from the boulevard and buss stops to, Valetta, Mosta, cerkjewa...
The temperature inside was around 26 degrees. There is a air-co installation inside but we didn't use them because there were no remotes to control them, probably because that would be very expensive, 'electricity is very expensive in Malta' It wasn't a problem at all there were 2 Fans that worked fine.
There is a patio with a outdoor shower 'hot and cold water' which we used... pretty much all the time.
You do need to flip the switch of the boiler to get warm water it heats up in 10 minutes.
The house has allot of switches for all the electric outlets that was sometimes confusing when putting of/on lights.
I would recommend this house to couples and families (without kids age 1-6 because of some electricity outlets), it's definitely worth the price.
Vanessa, thank you! We will definitely visit Malta again.
Thanks for your lovely write up I really appreciate it and will take your suggestions. Regarding the aircon it is stated that there is a daily fee of €10 on the listing for whoever wants to use it as electricity is very expensive. thanks again and hope to see you soon. V
Vanessa's house is amazing! A dream! A beautiful and lovely apt, very typical and with a nice private courtyart, that was perfect for breakfast and aperitiv. The house is in a comfortable position, near the seaside, the bus stop, the water taxi to (website hidden). Julian and the centre of the nightlife are very close. The communication with Vanessa before and during our stay was excellent, she's very kind. If you decide to stay in Malta choose Vanessa's house!
