“Great Views, Nice Location, Spacious Apartment & Excellent Host”
Reviewed 28 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We arrived & departed on the weekend, so William was able to pick us up from the airport & dropped us off, even though it was a Sunday 5.15am departure!! - That really was above & beyond the call of duty & was very much appreciated. The apartment was spacious & had everything we wanted. Lovely views from the balcony & roof terrace (See pictures). Excellent location next to Kalkara harbour with Birgu & the Valletta Ferry only a short walk away. We had a great holiday & enjoyed exploring the island.

Had a really great week in Kalkara- apartment is very comfortable and has wonderful views. Alarm clock not necessary due to the local church but means you make full use of the day! Local restaurants offer good authentic Maltese dishes and swimming pool was still warm enough at the end of October! Thank you William for providing an almost home from home base for us.

“Helpful owner but some issues”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I'll do my honest review in two parts as there are some great things about the apartment but also some not so great.
Good points: From first enquiry Bill the owner was friendly and helpful and quick to respond. He really could not do enough to help and picked us up at the water taxi stop in Birgu. He also offered to take us back to the airport on the Sunday via Marksalox for a quick detour to the harbour market (but in the end he was invited away for the weekend so this didn't happen and we made our own way to the airport).
The apartment is located a few minutes' walk from the centre of both Kalkara and Birgu. Bill showed us round the flat, then he took us up to the rooftop pool and terrace which has stunning views and pointed out some restaurant recommendations. The kitchen and dining area is spacious and the separate entrance area has a large settee and TV, though we never turned it on so have no idea which channels are available. The double bedroom we used and the bathroom are of average size. Plenty of spare loo roll. Great water pressure for the shower (but see below!)
Wifi is good, especially in the hall/tv area of the apartment and we were told to help ourselves to anything in the fridge and cupboards which was very generous. There was fresh milk and water as well as a selection of tea bags from Tetley's to herbal and green tea. We used the coffee and breakfast things, otherwise we tended to eat out.
Great value for money.

Negative points: this is never pointed out but the apartment is actually the host's main living accommodation and he moves out when the apartment is booked. (Two or three of the rooms were locked which is fine, but why doesn't Bill use these rooms for storage of his personal clothes etc which were left in the wardrobe and drawers of the room we were allocated, or even have one nice room purely for paying guests?)
The bed was pretty uncomfortable (but the sheets smelt nice and clean) and needs a mattress that doesn't make you roll into the middle!
You can hear the other residents in the apartment block above and below.
There was nowhere in the bathroom to put our washbags except on the floor which was grubby and dusty.
The bathroom was particularly grubby and the floor obviously hadn't been mopped in a while, nor the sink cleaned. On the second morning there was little water pressure and definitely not enough to even make the over bath shower work so we called Bill but no answer. We then communicated successfully by email and he said he knows it can be a problem if someone else in the block unplugs the pump. (Twice last week). This problem solved itself within an hour or so, but it would be a good idea to at least mention that it can happen but can easily be fixed.
The same morning we also hit a problem with a minor flood when washing up after breakfast. It seemed the water drained from the plug hole into the cupboard then out on to the kitchen floor- we mopped up the floor but when we contacted Bill (by email as no answer on mobile) he merely said he knew about the problem but didn't offer any solutions till later when he emailed to say he'd pop by and check both water problems. Bill advised us later that he'd checked it out and adjusted the overflow but we should empty the washing up bowl slowly. Again, why not just say and it wouldn't be an issue. We didn't dare risk it though so emptied the washing up bowl in the bathroom, especially as the cupboard under the sink didn't look as if it had been cleaned for a while and we didn't want to make it worse in case the overflow still leaked.
So, overall, if the apartment can be thoroughly cleaned, and you take it as it comes, it offers good value for money.

Hi to be honest..I found it strange that you thought the place dusty and grubby as all the floors bathroom etc were all cleaned the evening before you arrived. Malta is a bit of a dust bowl at times. As I told you there is no logic to the water flow problem and no previous guest has ever experienced the problems....also every other guest has been able to contact me by phone apart from your selves. But overall I am glad you had a pleasant stay.

“Spacious apartment, could do with a good clean though.”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had booked to stay in Birgu originally however the apartment was double booked so we found this as an alternative. The apartment is spacious and well located (although at the top or a large hill) close to bus stops, felt safe and the locals were friendly. Had an issue with the shower but Bill was very helpful getting this fixed (came out on two occasions). It was a shame that the cleanliness of the apartment was poor, the floors although swept clearly hadn't been moped (our feet were instantly black) and under the beds / behind bins etc had been missed so lots of dirt / dust underneath and in the corners. The kitchen needed a good clean, sticky worktops and dirty dishcloth which we threw away. The pillows were yellow / very worn and old underneath the pillow covers and there was hair on the sheets (not ours). It was clear someone lived here and it was not just a holiday home which may have been the reason for the poor cleanliness?! Lovely area, but would not stay at the apartment again. Pool was a nice bonus although not heated so quite cold.
