Naxxar house description

Originally a typical farmhouse, Dar Bajda has been tastefully converted into a terraced village house of great character & charm. Conveniently located in the heart of the quaint hilltop village of Naxxar, a stroll away from local shops, bars & food outlets & from the pretty village square with its magnificent church. It is not part of a tourist development.
Dar Bajda has a superb landscaped garden which includes a secure gated pool with spacious deck areas & terraces for sunbathing surrounded by bougainvillea, oleander & eucalyptus trees. The pool area is gated so good if you have young kids.
Hall - cloakroom - large fully equipped modern kitchen - adjoining breakfast room -arched ante room - charming arched lounge - spacious dining and sitting area with French doors to garden & pool - master bedroom suite with its own sun terrace - en suite dressing room & bathroom with shower - 3 further bedrooms - family bathroom - outdoor shower - all bedrooms have ceiling fans & air-con.

Why Dar Bajda is better: Dar Bajda is privately owned and run. It is not part of a resort so you will not be bothered by other noisy or drunken holidaymakers. Unlike many rental properties on the market, Dar Bajda is well maintained by its owners who buy for the property what they would buy for themselves. Properties owned by travel companies often skimp on items or supply the cheapest of everything. Dar Bajda is redecorated annually during the winter.

The property has the type of amenities you will expect but may forget to ask for; a dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, wifi. The owners take care to ensure that the other facilities are appropriate (e.g. there are enough plates and glasses, adequate cooking facilities of a reasonable quality). The outdoor tables and pool loungers are quality teak, not cheap plastic.

The house is non-smoking. Accommodation restricted to the number of persons booked and confirmed and should never exceed 8 adults. Sorry but NO DOGS OR PETS are allowed in the house.

Useful local contacts/Car hire/Airport transfers: CAR RENTAL and AIRPORT TRANSFERS: It is best and cheaper to pre book Car Rental or Airport transfers directly. For competitive rates use the car rental feature on the Air Malta website which trawls for the cheapest rates. USEFUL CONTACTS: Housekeeper - Rose - Tel 21436994 - lives close by in the village; prepares the house for your arrival and provides linen/towels for the number of persons booked; also provides weekly cleaning/ linen change for bookings of over 7 days. Additional cleaning/maid service and baby sitting can be provided by private arrangement with her. Gardener/Handyman - Paul (contact through Rose) - has access to water the garden twice weekly. Pool attendant Robert (contact through Rose) needs to maintain the pool at least once weekly. Always follow his instructions and those of the Housekeeper regarding pool chemicals he or she may use. The pool room is strictly out of bounds. Emergency/plumber Etienne (through Rose)

Arriving and departing: We require full details of your incoming and outgoing flight arrangements in order to hand over keys to the house. Arriving guests may enter after 3pm. Departing guests are requested to vacate the house by 10am. This way we have 4 hours to clean and prepare the house after previous guests have departed.

Polite Notice: We expect you to inform the Housekeeper of any damages caused by you during your stay which we may not be aware of. This way we can repair or replace before the next guests arrive. Please also inform us if you notice any damages on entry (which we might not also have been aware of or noticed).

                          Dar Bajda is located in centre of the ancient hill top village of Naxxar. It is within walking distance of the main square abounding with village shops including old fashioned grocery shops, the best butcher shop in Malta, a supermarket, pharmacies, local bars and restaurants all about 6 minute walk. Also in the village square is the magnificent Palazzo Parisio - the local 19th Century manor house which is open to the public, has a restaurant & is well worth a visit. Also worth a visit is Mosta Town - hardly 3kms down the road and renowned for its church with the third largest dome in the world where a WW2 bomb fell but did not explode. The coast road is 15 minutes drive giving access to many resorts with good bathing facilities like Bugibba, St Pauls Bay, Salina, Bahar ic Caghaq & St Julians. Rural but superbly located for quick excursions to Valletta (8km - historical lots to see), Sliema-St Julians (4kms- smart -lots of cafes, restaurants & night spots), Gozo island - lovely day trip (17kms to car ferry crossing at Cirkewwa).

                          The airport is 10km away, about 20 minutes drive.

                          Other Activities: Sites of archaeologic and historic interest close by including the Hypogeum (you must book well ahead) and Hagar Qim.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1985

                          About the owner: The farmhouse has been in our family since the mid 1980's when my late father bought and converted it. It's come a long way since then. There used to be onions growing in what is now the master bedroom. I let and manage the house now for my mother and stay there in August with my wife and 4 young children.

                          Why the Owner Chose Naxxar:
                          The property is an old fashioned house of character beautifully converted with modern amenities including fully kitted kitchen, dishwasher and washing machine. The house is set in the middle of a village so it is tranquil but not isolated. Families are most welcome and the garden and pool has been designed to be family friendly with gates which can be closed to keep children safe although care should be exercised and children should never be allowed to roam in the garden.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Over the years the owners have made improvements aimed at allowing our guests a lovely and peaceful holiday. Guests seem to love holidaying at the house as the guestbook testifies. The owners spend their summer holidays there themselves.
