Neville Galea purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Neville Galea chose Ix-Xemxija
This property is in a quiet area of St Pauls Bay. The more tourist areas of Bugibba and Qawra are 15 minutes on foot. Parking is much easier in this area and so ideal for those renting a car. The bus stop is just in front of the apartment block and reaching the North and South of Malta is easy. The view from the balcony and front room of this apartment is enchanting. Guests fall in love with the view and area and many return. The view at night of most seafront properties is pitch dark sea. This apartment enjoys the reflections in the sea of the lights of opposite Xemxija coast. Thus we named it Harbour Lights! This property also enjoys a small swimming area just 150 m away which is ideal for a quick swim after a day sightseeing or for a morning reviving swim!
What makes this Apartment unique
We are full time on our properties. We also have employees who help us with the managing of the apartments. Thus you can rely on a 24/7 assistance and professional accommodation.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Malte super expérience
Malta is super, the appartment was as per the photos, the owners are very gentle and took care of us during the time spent there. The bus line is right in front of the appart so it was easy to visit the Island. We were there for 2 months and discovered plenty of nice places during all that time.
I recommend this place.
Thank you for your review and rating. Hosting you was our pleasure too. Indeed the bus stop is close by and the amenties close by too. The view is superb and guests can reach out to us at any point during their stay.
We invite you to be back soon!

Perfect location with great views of the fishing harbour
We stayed here for a long stay from January to March and it was a great location for us. We did not have a car and did not feel a need for one. We loved the views from the balcony and watching the fishing boats coming and going. Within walking distance we found restaurants, shops and banks. The bus stops right outside the door are very useful for going further afield.
Neville and Ruth were perfect hosts and couldn’t be more helpful. They always responded immediately to any queries we had and were always available to offer advice when needed. We feel the success of our 3 month stay is due to their professionalism. Thank you and we plan to return next year.
Hi Alan and Suzanne, Thank you so much for the review. We are very happy that you had a nice time in Malta. It was a pleasure hosting you. Indeed apartment is located in a quiet area right on the seafront and in the area there is everything you need. We look forward to your next stay in Malta! Ruth and Neville and the Getawaysmalta team
A view that you will never tire of.
A modernised 2 bedroom apartment, with 2 single beds in each, with tiled floors throughout in a convenient location for local bars and restaurants and a view that is relaxing both day and night.
The picture attached is NOT the apartment we actually stayed in but another owned by the same landlord further up the bay.
Thank you for your review! Yes in fact as you stayed in Blue Harbour apartments just few meters up the road due to some works we had to do at Harbour Lights apartments. Blue Harbour and Harbour lights are very similar apartments in the same location with same facilities and specifications.
We have many apartments in Malta and we are full time on our properties. To make sure we give always the best service we have our own maintenance staff with vans full of spares, stores full of spares, our own representatives/hosts to welcome you at the apartments and be there should you need any assistance, our own cleaners, office staff personnel that are available 7 days a week and 2 emergency phones that are on 24/7 should you need our help.
Self catering apartments do not have a reception. However on arrival departure and any day you need anything you will find our friendly and dedicated representatives/hosts. Our office staff are reachable by phone, SMS, Whats App (free WiFi in all apartments), email and Facebook.
Thank you again for having been our guests. We hope to see you again soon!
Good stay on a really lovely island
Good comfortable accommodation with wonderful views. Everything we needed was at hand and transport was literally on our doorstep. We love Malta and will certainly return.
Only 2 negatives - firstly the noise from the road is huge which disturbs the tranquil setting. secondly you need anti mosquito sprays - its the time of year really but the mosquitoes were awful day and night.
Only 1 further comment - could the owners write down how to use the TV etc as we forgot the instructions
hi Carole! Thank you for your nice comments. We are very happy that you had a nice stay with us and that you like the apartment. Indeed the location is perfect and the views are amazing. The road infront of the apartment is not a main road and the bedrooms are at the back side of the apartment, so this is usually of no disturbance to our guests. Re tv, we have iptv with many international channels to choose from. The whole system is an autoplay, so once it is turned on, the channels are automatically displayed. Guests can reach out to us at any point during their stay...they can call us, email us, chat on facebook, what s app. It was a pleasure hosting you and we look forward to your next stay with us! ruth and Neville
Primeira vez que nos decepcionamos com um aluguel da homeaway
Eu poderia listar varias coisas que nos deixaram bastante frustados, mas apenas gostaria de dizer pra não repetirem o meu erro de deixar para a ultima hora.
Agendem com antecedência que poderão encontrar apartamentos muito melhores nessa mesma faixa de preço.
El apartamento está bien cuidado y muy limpio. El apartamento tiene un balcón frente al mar una de las mejores vistas de Maltas y encantadoras luces del puerto reflejando en el agua.
Las fotos en el anuncio son tomadas por mí mismo utilizando una cámara barata, para asegurarse de que mostrar como es y por lo tanto los huéspedes tendrán expectativas realistas.
Mis representantes, mi personal de mantenimiento y yo Neville están en la cuadra cada día y hablamos muchas veces durante su estancia. También tenemos servicio de emergencia las 24 horas del día, 7 días a la semana y 14 horas al día.
Usted nunca nos dijo de ningún problema excepto sobre el problema de Internet que afectó a todos los bloque, como el módem y routers se quemó debido a un aumento de potencia. Como sabes, resolvimos el problema en 12 horas (era domingo por la noche). El lunes por la mañana el Internet estaba de vuelta a la normalidad mientras que vamos un técnico para solucionar el problema.
Nuestros precios han sido los mismos durante los últimos 5 años y cada año verificamos que somos competitivos incluso con apartamentos que no tienen una vista tan bonita!
Estamos contentos de que siempre estamos completamente reservado y creo que estamos muy bien de precio.
Su reserva fue en agosto, que es el pico de la temporada alta, así que no puedes esperar precios bajos.
Estoy seguro de que confrontado los precios antes de hacer la reserva, y ya que era un gran grupo el precio por persona era muy bajo en comparación con un hotel.
Si bien estamos seguros de haber hecho todo lo posible para hacer sus vacaciones r y alojamiento lo más cómodo y perfecto posible, le deseamos todo lo mejor.
The apartment is well kept and super clean. The apartment has a seafront balcony one of Maltas best views and lovely harbour lights reflecting in the water.
The photos in the advert are taken by myself using a cheap camera, to make make sure we show it as it is and thus guests will have realistic expectations.
My representatives, my maintenance staff and myself Neville are in the block every day and we spoke many times during your stay. We also have 24/7 emergency service and a 14 hours a day open office.
You never told us of any problems except about the internet problem that effected all the block, as the modem and routers got burnt due to a power surge. As you know we resolved the issue in 12 hours (it was Sunday night). On Monday morning the internet was back to normal as we go a technic
Comfortable apartment with great view
We spent 5 days in the apartment, with my elderly parents. We chose this apartment because of the lift, the bedroom layout, and of course the wonderful view. Steph met us on arrival and quickly showed us round. The apartment was very clean and, after opening all the cupboards, we found sufficient towels and blankets. I really don't think that more than 5 people could stay comfortably in the apartment. it was quite windy during our stay and warmer blankets/quilts would have been welcome, as would a bath mat in the bathroom because the floor is slippery when wet. The sliding window on the balcony didn't close properly so there was a constant draft which was a nuisance and the fact that the apartment was not securely locked was annoying. There was also a problem with the water draining from the shower tray which no doubt could be fixed with a plunger. There are no shops nearby, but fortunately we had a car so that wasn't a big problem for us. It would have been a nice touch to provide some basic groceries i.e. bread, jam, coffee, tea, sugar, milk. I would also suggest that it is time to renew the bed linen which is rather tired.
Thank you for your comments. We are happy that you had a nice stay and loved the view. Indeed apartment is located right on the seafront and is fully equipped. On arrival we give our contact details where we can be reached 24 hrs a day. We can be reached via What s App, Facebook, Email or telephone. We wished you informed us when you were here that you required extra blankets, bath mat as we would have supplied in just a matter of hours. We assure you that the balcony doors do lock properly, one has to hold the middle sliding door with the left hand and close the other sliding door with the left hand simultaneously, if not done like this, then they will not close properly. Shops are located on the other side of the bay about 10 min on foot away. thank you for being our guests and hope you will be our guests again! ruth and Neville
