We stayed in Lorenzo's flat during a week of pretty unforgiving weather. Lorenzo was extremely helpful as other reviewers here have already noted. He went out of his way to help us settle in and was easy to contact.
The flat has rather basic furnishings and isn't well climate controlled for the unusually cold and wet weather. That said, Lorenzo had a heater and dehumidifier ready which made things more comfortable. All of the items that could be needed are there which was thoughtful.
The views from the balcony were lovely. The location is very good for accessing different parts of the island for sightseeing. It is removed from the main tourist area so I would recommend it for a quiet getaway.
This apartment was in the perfect position from which to explore Malta and Gozo, with a fantastic view over St.Pauls bay. It was clean and in great condition with everything catered for.
Lorenzo had very thoughtfully and kindly provided all we needed after our late arrival to relax, including a couple of beers, bottled water and plenty for breakfast in the fridge. Unexpected and very welcome.
He also met us at the airport even though we had a hire car to guide us to the apartment through all the roadworks ...
So I recommend this place and I thank Lorenzo for his help and cheerfulness.
Thanks James for your review .
We do our best to make all guests very welcome.
You are welcome again anytime.
Everything was good about our stay at Lorenzo's apartment except that it was cold (being winter, and the heater struggled) and there was an issue with the internet which meant it wasn't working for most of the time we were there, which made it very difficult to plan our days. Lorenzo picked us up from the airport, there were some things in the fridge for us, and the view was magnificent.
Lorenzo was a fabulous host. He picked us up from the airport and made sure there were basic things (coffee, wine, bread, cereal, cheese, etc) to help us get settled in the apartment. He also gave us some tips on what to do on the island while we were there. Great host!
Love Love Love!!
The place is amazing. The view is second to none. If you are going to stay in Malta, stay here. Lorenzo was great, he even picked us from the airport at midnight which was (website hidden) Pauls is great location. Shops are not far. We managed to cook every night in the apartment. Internet speed is good. The BBQ on the terrace was great too!. Would go back in a heart beat
You are always welcome.
L'accoglienza di Lorenzo ci è risultata un po' fredda, soprattutto rispetto a quanto letto nelle recenti recensioni su AirBnB. E' arrivato in ritardo di 25 minuti rispetto al nostro arrivo all'aeroporto e solo dopo il mio invio di un sms, ci ha sbrigativamente e con poche parole, illustrato alcune cose di interesse vicino a casa mentre ci trasbordava dall'aeroporto alla baia St. Paul, in casa ci ha mostrato velocemente le dotazioni dell'appartamento e salutato dicendo che comunque era a disposizione per qualsiasi cosa.
Il primo impatto entrate in casa non è stato dei migliori in quanto si sentiva un cattivo odore. Abbiamo quindi provveduto ad eliminare tutti i vari tappeti polverosi e sporchi sparsi tra la camera e il salotto, scopare e lavare i pavimenti, ripulito tutta la zona sotto il lavello della cucina che risultava sporca e la situazione è migliorata. In ultimo lo scarico del bagno non emana odori piacevoli .... probabilmente un problema dovuto al sistema fognario della zona.
La Baia di St. Paul presenta pochissime soluzioni per cenare e sono comunque tutte dall'altra parte della baia.
Di per se la casa è comoda solo alla fermata degli autobus che si trova a 50 mt, ma è scomoda per qualsiasi attività serale, fosse anche solo andara a mangiare al ristorante, in quanto lontana dalla passeggiata serale che è solo a Bugibba che dista circa 40 minuti a piedi o alcuni minuti di autobus, che però in serata passano più diradati fino alla tarda serata dove non passano quasi più. Si consiglia quindi sicuramente l'utilizzo di un mezzo per muoversi. Noi abbiamo affittato uno scooter e ci siamo trovate benissimo per girare l'isola in generale. Lo sconsiglierei però per muoversi nella zona Sliema/Valletta/Tre città perché molto trafficate e comunque molto più servite di Autobus della zona Nord di Malta. Comunque alla fine noi abbiamo risolto comprando il necessario per fare delle belle cene in terrazza. Sconsiglierei la casa per più di due persone. Un terzo inquilino renderebbe la casa poco trafficabile.
Ahead of my arrival, Lorenzo kindly offered to pick me up from the airport and to drive me to the apartment in his private car. The transfer didn't take long (20mins). I was staying on my own so the apartment offered good space. It was clean and Lorenzo mentioned that his wife had kindly filled the fridge with basic foods, which I thought added a nice touch to the welcome. The apartment is located on the 4th floor and has a lift/elevator. The view towards the water front during day time is beautiful and there are some nice water-side places on the opposite side of the bay (about 10mins walk) to explore. As I tended to explore Malta more during the night time, I tended to order local taxis to get me to places and I was happy to pay the EUR20,-+ single fare to get to the next city in order having to wait for the night bus. There is, however, a local bus service along the promenade which runs regular services. For the tourists who are less heat-resistant (such as myself), just be aware that Malta tends to get really hot in late summer, so do get used to using the fan. There were two provided in the apartment. Oh, the wifi worked well in the flat, so I could access the internet without issues. Enjoy your stay!
Lorenzo est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport et nous a gentiment aidé avec le mauvais loueur de voiture gold car. Arrivés à l'appartement il a pris le temps de tout nous expliquer. Étant arrivés en soirée nous étions contente de voir qu'il nous avait prévu quelques petites choses au frigo. L'appartement était mignon et la grande terrasse très agréable. Seul bémol les travaux à côté de l'appartement et le lieu un peu trop touristique.
Ramona & her friend were very nice & appropriate guests.
I had no problem hosting them.
I recommend them to all on Airbnb.
My partner and I stayed at Lorenzo's apartment for seven nights. The apartment was perfect and matched the description exactly. The location is excellent if you are looking for something quieter, with the views over St Pauls Bay exceptional. We rented a car so it was really easy to get around (parking was easy apart from the Sunday when the parks were very busy). If you are using public transport then the buses come past regularly.
Lorenzo was an ideal host. He met us at the airport to show us where we needed to go, and was easily contactable at all times. I highly recommend Lorenzo and his lovely apartment.
We stayed for 3 nights in Lorenzo's apartment. It was very easy to communicate with Lorenzo. The apartment has a very good location.
