77 Apartments are family-run fully-furnished apartments located right in the heart of the tranquil seaside village of Marsascala. The apartments are a 5-minute walk away from the bus terminus, restaurants, bars, promenade, bank, church, groceries and all other amenities.
Known to locals as “Wied il-Għajn”, Marsascala is located in the southern part of the island and boasts plenty of amazing swimming spots with clear blue Mediterranean sea. All these spots are within
walking distance of the apartments including the rocky “Beachcomber beach” where you can swim right next to the cliffs and the rest of the rocky Marsascala coastline. Some villagers still produce salt from the age-old salt pans etched in the rocks. There is also a small sandy beach (St. Thomas Bay or “Ramla”) that is perfect for families with kids. The newly-opened Sant’Antin Family Adventure Park featuring picnic areas, play areas, outdoor gym equipment, rock-
climbing and abseiling areas, a dog park, an amphitheatre and a water park is also very popular with young visitors.
Marsascala is the perfect place for endless walks. Apart from the sea promenade that runs along the coastline, it is also very close to the historical cities (Vittoriosa, Senglea, Cospicua and Kalkara) and Marsaxlokk, Malta’s authentic fishing village where you can find Malta’s best seafood and the gorgeous secluded swimming spot of St. Peter's Pool, is only a 45-minute walk away. Getting to Valletta, Malta’s capital city (UNESCO world heritage), is easy with a direct 30-minute bus ride.
Diving Schools and English Language schools are also within walking distance of the apartment.
The airport is only 20 mins away from Marsascala. A discounted airport pickup can be arranged directly to the apartments upon request.
The bus service in Malta is cheap and covers most of the island. It is recommended to rent a car in order to explore the nicest parts of Malta. Driving in Malta (a former British colony) is on the left-hand side.
Renting a bicycle for a day or two is recommended to visit the areas surrounding Marsascala.
Smoking is strictly allowed only in the Terrace
We stayed 1 straight month in the apartment and everything was fine ! Albert & Dorianne always respond quick to any interrogation or problem you could meet during your stay and are both really kind. The apartment is sufficient for 2 persons and the terrace is really enjoyable.
Marsaskala is a really calm and beautiful city, you'll enjoy the long walks along the bay.
L'host non l'ho conosciuto personalmente in quanto tutta la procedura di checkin è "automatica". Ad ogni modo le poche volte che ho avuto bisogno, l'ho contattato per email e mi ha sempre risposto molto velocemente ed è stato sempre cortese e corretto.
Il quartiere non è dei migliori ma è molto vicino al porto ed al lungo mare, in una zona tranquilla.
Per quanto riguarda l'appartamento è tutt'altra cosa, era in condizioni non propriamente eccellenti, lenzuola e federe non erano pulite, abbiamo trovato peli e capelli, sia nel letto che in giro per casa, il copri materasso ha un rivestimento in plastica che "scricchiola" tutte le volte che ci si rigira nel letto e fa molto caldo, non vi sono coperte da poter aggiungere sul letto, la carta igienica, completamente assente!! l'abbiamo cercata ovunque!! :-( e per fortuna avevamo dei fazzoletti di carta.
E' praticamente un monolocale con annesso bagno, dove si dorme a poco meno di un metro da un frigorifero che fa un rumore assurdo tutta notte. Essendo all'ultimo piano vi è solo una ripidissima rampa di scale in cui non esistono i pianerottoli, ovvero esistono ma sono stati fagocitati e rinchiusi dalla metratura degli appartamenti e quindi se si ha una valigia anche piccola è veramente difficile passare, con in più il rischio di cadere in fase di uscita di casa passando per degli scalini che dire che non sono a norma è fargli un complimento!. Ad ogni modo se lo dovete utilizzare solo per dormire e per brevi periodi come abbiamo fatto noi e vi portate dietro uno zainetto "piccolo" diciamo che può andare bene! ma... mi raccomando... poratevi sempre la vostra carta igienica in viaggio... non si sa mai.
accomodation pretty small but with a nice terrace. too bad their was absolutly nothing welcome us. We meet nobody for the check in, only a code to the door to acceed to the accomodation. we had a trouble with the wash machin and it takes 2 days for somebody come in because you need internet to communicate by e mail and connectivity of wi fi is very very bad so you don't receive your e mail.
Moreover. The beach at 5 minutes is not really a beach but only a rock with a scale to go for a bath.
The apartment lived up to expectations as per description and images. Even though the apartment is small, it had all necessities we needed and a HUGE terrace. The neighborhood is surprisingly quiet, as the locals live close to each other. The traffic is negligible. As we had car rental for the holidays, it was really easy finding an parking space. On the downside, the Wi-Fi had issues reaching the upper floor.
If you just need a bed, bath and kitchen, this definitely will do the trick for you. Most of the days we were out diving, visiting cities and enjoying the fantastic weather - so absolutely enough for us.
Communications where precise, fast as lightning and always friendly. Because of a mix up/slow booking, we couldn't have the apartment the whole week. This was quickly resolved by the hosts, who where so kind and upgraded us for free to an apartment close by.
Marsascala was absolutely the city we were looking for. A small town, with a long promenade and good restaurants with reasonable prices. The promenade is buzzing with life, as the locals enjoy the evening hours.
The reaction is quick and responsive. Very nice and friendly people. The apartment was good and clean. Two small issues;
1. The Wifi is not strong enough to reach the top floor
2. There is no hot water in the kitchen
Other than that we can certainly recommend this renter and the apartment.
