We stayed at Templar House for 5 days over New Year’s Eve. I obviously agree with all positive comments that were written before, but there is on important thing that needs to be added:

The level of professionalism of Paul who rents this house is well above expectations from the first inquiry all the way to deposit return thru special arrangements/accommodations, welcoming pack and house preparation. I can say this is the “Four Seasons/Ritz” experience of renting an apartment.

I truly believe that the people who want to rent their places to foreign travelers should book with Paul for few days to see how things should be done properly.

Thank you Paul!

Few our recommendations:

- If bar/club scene is not what you looking for, Birgu/Vittoriosa area is the place to stay
- Tal Petut restaurant is THE place to go
- We loved our trip to fish market in Marsaxlokk – nice fresh fish and seafood + small restaurants, and considering that Templar House has a full kitchen, buying and cooking some of the local fish is definitely an option
- Mdina – definitely worth a trip

“Wonderful!”

This was a wonderful house in a wonderful location. Everything that was promised was there including clear instructions and lots of suggestions for restaurants, etc.. The home was very clean and perfect for our needs. The ktichen was well supplied and the owner left some basic food supplies for us to use on arrival. We were met at the airport as promised and that was also very fortunate as we had been up since 3:30 that morning. The view from the roof top patio was amazing. The bus service was great and the bus stop was only a short walk from the house. The only cautionary note is that there are a lot of steps. The roof top patio is 40 steps from the main floor; the bedrooms about 20 steps from the main level. This did not bother us but it might be an issue for others. Aside from this, we strongly recommend this as a great place to vacation.

A lovely, clean and well-appointed house filled with character. Arriving very late at night the "welcome pack" of coffee, water, wine and food basics was indeed welcome! The roof terrace was wonderful, a great place for breakfast or drinks at sunset.

“Thoroughly enjoyable stay in lovely old house”
Reviewed 14 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed in early October and found the house to be as described. The views from the roof terrace across towards the harbour are magnificent. We also appreciated the sunbeds placed under the canopy to get a bit of shade but there were others out on the roof for sun worshippers! The airconditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome as the weather was still very warm (around 30 degrees C) and it didn't cool off much at night. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and it is nice to have the option to eat outside in the pretty courtyard or inside in the dining area. The old character of the building has been well preserved and it is a lovely place to stay, although there are a lot of steps so you need to be reasonably fit to get up to the roof terrace (don't leave your sunglasses in the kitchen - it is a long way down and back up again!)

The owner Paul is extremely well organised and the booking and key provision as well as the depost return was very efficient. A great deal of care and attention has been given to planning and using the rooms in the property and to making it a great holiday let. It is very hard to fault anything and we only have one suggestion for possible improvement. We did miss the comfy mattress and nice bedlinen that we have at home, not that there was anything wrong with the bedding provided - just that it didn't quite match the luxury of the rest of the property and furnishings.

There is a small shop just around the corner on the main road which sells a wide range of goods and we didn't need to venture further afield to find a supermarket. The local restaurants are great - large portions and lovely food. There is a bus stop about 2 minutes up the main road and you can catch buses into Valletta and a bus back to the airport (X7) from here.

The area is generally pretty quiet (apart from the church bells!) and the local people are friendly. It is very safe and fine to walk around at night.
We had a great stay and would definitely recommend highly.

“Great location and lovely house”

We loved the house. It was in a great location and had all the amenities listed. We were met by the driver at the airport as promised and found some necessary supplies at the house. Everything was clean and sunny, the bedrroms and bathrooms were fresh and roomy. We enjoyed eating out on the deck both downstairs and up on the roof. The rooftop balcony requires climbing quite a few steps. this was no problem for us but might be a consideration for some travellers. the bus system in Malta is excellent and allowed us to get around conveniently and at a low cost. We highly recommend this property.
