Chris and Anna are very nice and helpful. The flat is great, calm and as beautiful as in the photos. We had a very relaxing stay in the heart of Valletta. We wish all the best to Chris and Anna for their ongoing projects! thanks a lot for everything!
Wonderful apartment with a stylish and at the same time very comfortable atmosphere. Nice terrace, great sea view, location perfect in the centre of Valetta. Chris is a great host, very helpful with lots of tips for our stay.
We would definitely come back again.
Chris and Anna were great hosts from the moment we booked, giving us lots of helpful information about Valletta and the rest of Malta and organising a taxi to pick us up at the airport. The apartment is really stylish and comfortable, beautifully designed and furnished, just a lovely place to have a holiday. It is right on the water with great views and only a few minutes walk to the centre of the city and all that has to offer. Chris and Anna leave a really detailed booklet of things to do and see locally as well as lots of useful stuff about where to get supplies and pizza!
Der Aufenthalt im Valletta Vintag war super. Das Zimmer ist genau so schön, wie auf den Bildern. Chris und Anna haben uns gut mit Empfehlungen für die Umgebung versorgt.
Die Lage ist sehr zentral und Parkplätze zu finden ist kein Problem (Was man sonst nicht für der Rest der Stadt sagen kann).
Danke an Chris und Anna, und wir würden jeder Zeit wieder kommen.
This is a quaint quiet rental flat with stunning views of the seas surrounding Malta. Everything was as described and communication was excellent. Anna and Chris are very accomodating.
Although the space is only studio sized it is well laid out and beautifully decorated. the kitchen is up a small flight of stairs and is shared at lunch hours with the office staff of the firm below the flat. We quite enjoyed running into people there and chatting. The terrace of the kitchen is amazing, affording unbelievable views. It was wonderful to watch all the ships from there. The WIFI was extremely fast - the best we encountered in 3 weeks of european travel. There are shops and restaurants close by and we followed the excellent guide left by Anna and Chris in the flat. A plus rental - highly reccommend. Hope to return one day. Thanks Anna and Chris!
Already before arriving in Malta, Chris and Anna offered to arrange a taxi from the airport to the Vintage Valletta and were they very flexible with arriving times/checking in. This enhanced the feeling of being welcomed and an being an expected guest. And also of being secure of that everyting was alright.
After settling in, Chris came to the door to make sure everyting was okay - which it was - and that the heating was working (needed in February) - a nice touch of care :)
The people that was bumped into due to the fact thet this little get-a-way is located on top of an Architect Studio were very open and everyone asked if something was needed. Smiling faces all arround.
And nothing was needed. It was all there, just as in the pictures, an elegantly furnished jewel of a get-away close to everyting and still quiet (at least in the wintertime). With views to the Mediterranean in two directions!
If you are looking for quiet and private and meticulously looked after (by friendly and inviting persons) - this is where to go.

Hey there! I am a Maltese architect who loves art and design, music and travelling.
My partner Anna and I greatly enjoy meeting and working with people from different nationalities and backgrounds.
I was brought up in medieval Birgu, Anna is from Minsk, and today we just love living and working in Valletta, Malta's busy capital by day which calms down and becomes truly enchanting by night.
We believe that the best and most authentic travel experiences are about meeting the locals, spending some time with them, and living in their homes and by their ways. This is why we love AIRBNB; both as hosts and as guests... Well done for such a great idea, AIRBNB, and look forward to hosting you on our beautiful island or meeting you in your home!
