Marsaxlokk apartment description
2 bedroom apartment (sleeps 6) 500 metres from the beach in St Thomas Bay, Marsaskala, where you can enjoy walking along the promenade, visit heritage sites, swim or dine in open-air restaurants. Fifteen minutes away from the apartment, there is the bus terminus (village centre of Marsaskala). 3km away you can visit the Three Cities - three small citadel-cities in the port dating back to the 15th century full of old palazzi, museums & a romantic waterfront. Charming these citadels are old churches, castles, narrow streets, heritage museums, a casino, good restaurants & traditional wine bars. From Marsaskala buses go to Valletta where you can visit all its treasures such as St John's Cathedral, Upper Barrakka Gardens, Castille Place, Manoel Theatre, President's Palace, Republic Street, St James' Cavallier, St George Square, Hastings, Sacra Infermeria etc.
The closest beach is a sandy beach 500 metres away. Near this small beach one finds many rocky bays. Being close to the sea is nice both in summer and in winter, because in summer you can swim and sunbathe, and in winter you can walk and explore the cliffs close by, or have a barbeque by the sea on a blanket, or read a book.
Since Marsaskala is a small seaside village there are many places you can swim. Besides beaches, in Malta you could visit megalithic temples, forts built by the Knights, Popeye village, the Blue lagoon, etc. Renting a car depends on your goals. Would you like to drive around and see more? Or would you prefer to take it easy, walk in the countryside, travel by bus and enjoy quality time?
Suggested excursions: (1) Scenic walk through the country side to Marsaxlokk fishing village on a Sunday morning (there is the market). It will take 1 hour (maps at the apartment)
(2) 15 minute bus ride to the Three Cities: heritage, museums, fortifications, everything dating back from the time of the Knights. You will find the bus timetable at the apartment).
(3) Valletta (capital city) built by the Knights. Bus leaves every 20 minutes.
(4) Bay discovering. From Marsaskala you can walk up to the southern tip of Malta and discover small inlets where you can also swim in these small rocky bays.
(5) Walk to St Thomas Castle and Torri Mamo. In summer you can also watch friendly waterpolo mathes at the Marsaskala Waterpolo club.

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It is a cosy, spacious and clean place and has all amenities. The owner was very nice and we were provided with all we needed. The apartment is very close to the beach and we enjoyed going swimming everyday. Restaurants and bars are situated within walking distance. Everywhere is reachable with the bus. Very positive is the fact that we were picked up from the airport to the apartment and vice versa.

Owner response: Thank you for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed our apartment and your holiday after coming from such far away! Coming for you at the airport, and being there should you need something offer that extra bit for a nicer holiday.
The apartment in Marsaskala was clean and comfortable. As stated in the advert, the beach is very close. Also the bus stop, a minimarket and a confectionary are also two minutes away. The Maltese way of life was very nice and we enjoyed staying in Marsaskala because although you can find everything (restaurants, playing field, sea, promenade, etc.) it is still calm and cheaper than in the north of the island. The wifi in the apartment was very fast and the beds and sofa were comfortable.

Clean and spacious apartment
We stayed at this apartment for a couple of days and we liked it. It was clean and comfortable. The wifi is fast, beds were comfortable and most of all the countryside, sea and Marsaskala city centre are very close. There is a small supermarket close by and the bus stop is also less then three minutes away.

We have just spent a fortnight in this apartment for our winter break in Malta. Stephen the owner and Marianne his mother were very good communicators and helped us where necessary. The apartment is very spacious but much more suited to the warmer weather than the cool weather we have just experienced. One gas heater is really not sufficient during the winter months and we have been quite cold. The apartment was very clean although some of the equipment is starting to need an overhaul. Although we used some of the local restaurants we did cook quite a lot but found it quite challenging with the equipment provided.The local buses were very frequent and cheap to use but we decided to hire a car and this enabled us to get around the island and keep dry during the frequent showers. Overall we had a good break away from snow in the UK and learnt a lot about Malta and its history.

Nice timesGuest comment entered by owner
This apartment has everything so close and handy. St Thomas bay around the corner for a swim and a drink. A cute small Maltese shop for breakfast supplies and why not a walk around to enjoy the astonishing view of the cliffs and the Mediterranean sea. The flat itself is spacious and had everything I needed. The contact with the owner was nice and easy and everything from begining to end was pleasant. No problem whatsoever. On a quietly walking distance, you can easily get to a variety of restaurants and other services. Easy and fast connections by rental car, bus and taxi to the Airport, Valleta or anywhere around. For me, it defines the Maltese way: nice and easy.

I enjoyed the stay at your place. It was quite big for myself - did get lost almost ;-). Everything was there and worked out well. It was convenient for me, that the bus station was close by. And I really want to say thank you to Marianne again for driving me to the airport almost in the middle of the night. What a special offer to do that! All the best for you and your family ...

Excellent stay, warm welcome
Excellent stay, warm welcome
The apartment was excellent in every way. Immaculately clean, very spacious, well-equipped and in a great location - quiet and residential but only a short stroll to the beach. Ample car parking spaces, close to the mini-marts, it's a great base from which to explore the island by car. Perfect if you want a holiday away from the tourists! Would definitely recommend.

Once again, we were met at the airport by Stephen the moment we came through into the arrivals hall. No waiting about. Having stayed at this apartment previously, we knew what to expect and were not disappointed. The apartment was spotlessly clean as usual and even one or two extras had been added, especially the enhanced TV package so that we had more choice of programmes. Thank you for that, Stephen. Unfortunately, we had to call Marianne out late one evening due to a mishap (our fault) but she was wonderful. Whilst I was mortified that we had to call her at all, let alone at 11pm she was more concerned about us and said that her phone was on 24 hours a day for the guests welfare. You cannot ask for more care than that so totally impressed with the whole family set up and will certainly be using their accommadation in the future

Really enjoyed our holiday in this immaculately clean apartment just walking distance to the beach, grocery, restaurants, bus stop etc... The owner made us feel like we are part of the family. We will definitely come back. Good value for money.

Urlaub mit Kindern
Wir waren zum ersten mal auf Malta und haben zwei Wochen in der Wohnung gewohnt. Die Wohnung hat alles, was man für den Urlaub braucht. Gerade für Kleinkinder ist alles vorhanden, sogar ein Hocker im Bad und eine mobile Heizgelegenheit. Die Wohnung ist sauber und hat ausreichend Platz für 4 Personen. Die Lage ist auch super, alles gut zu Fuss zu erreichen, Strand, Einkaufen, Bus Bar, Restaurant. Die Vermieter sind freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir fanden die Wohnung empfehlenswert. Danke an Stephen, Stephens Mum und seinen Bruder mit dem perfekten Englisch!
