Although it is situated in the village core it enjoys stunning sea views and is in a quiet area, yet it is well located within walking distance of the sea, sandy beaches, bus stops, shops, restaurants, banks and the popular resort of Qawra.
The following is a review from clients who have spent a holiday in the house, and it gives a more detailed description of the house :
' This was our 1st time booking accom online so had certain qualms - but they proved to be totally unfounded. The house was exactly as stated on website infact if anything information didn't do it justice. This house is special as is Carmen who is a mine of information I really don't think there's anything she doesn't know - a truly lovely lady. The house was lovely and clean and has absolutely everything you could need even down to books and jigsaws and even more amazing kitchen knives that were lovely and sharp! It is situated about 2mins away from the seafront and the local beach which we found a real bonus after a day of being out and about to come home park up then walk down for an evening swim. A few doors up from the house is what Carmen calls a minute market (rather than mini market) it has all the basics and a few surpises too. Up the top of the road are the main shops (5/10 Mins walk) with some really wonderful fresh fish shops and everything else you could need (fresh bread from the bakers - a definite must) all with the added bonus that it's downhill on the return journey. This house is a true haven - such a refreshing change from soul less apartments, etc with character oozing out of it. It is extremely spacious so if a large group were there there is plently of living space as well as bedrooms. The main bedroom (sea facing) is huge and has a wonderful sea view - extremely tranquil in the evening watching the sun set. Carmen's beautifully tended garden is a real treasure - where we did most of our living. It is shaded, plenty of tables and chairs and very private. The plants are so well tended, colourful and pretty a real tribute to Carmen's careful nurturing any garden lover will recognise a kindred spirit. One last thing - the staircase - strange thing I know but it is so elegant and sweeping - holiday clothes didn't do it justice!~ This property is more than a house it really is a little part of Malta. Congratulations Carmen with your house and your welcome you will never be without bookings. Definitely going to return again and again' (Stuart and Judy, Co.Cork,Ireland)
Scuba Diving: The Maltese Islands are a real paradise for divers and snorklers, as an all-year-round centre! The minimum sea temperature never drops below 14 degrees celcius. The climate and duration of sunshine during the winter months are similar to an average North European summer. The islands offer excellent infrastructure for divers representing a very high standard offering services to the most sophisticated demands. Malta. Gozo and Comino boast a vast range of diving both from shore or by boat. The excellent under water visibility, the unique topographic structure of its underwater landscape, and the healthy flora and fauna, qualify the islands as the ideal place for this wonderful sport. One can also find an abundance of caves, holes, grottos and crevices. The islands also boast a vast variety of wrecks, ranging from the First World War to specifically scuttled wrecks.

Wonderful house full of character
This house is full of character! A traditional house, plenty of room and everything you could need, at a great price!
Josephine is a wonderful host, who came to meet us at gone midnight, and even left us a fridge of supplies to set up our first day.
The bus stop is a 2 minute walk and you can buy a bus pass at the shop on the corner of the street (just ask in there)
We’d definitely stay here again if we visit Malta.
Thank you. I do appreciate your wonderful review. I always try to
welcome and meet my guests to ensure that they have a good start to their holiday. Since I value my guests I also try to be as helpful as possible without infringing their privacy. You are always welcome to stay in the house if you visit Malta again.
Lovely Maltese property
The property has lots of character and the owner is very helpful. Everything was supplied and we really enjoyed our stay there
Thank you for your review. It is really appreciated and it is good to hear that you and your family enjoyed your holiday. I make every effort to make sure that my guests feel at home and to enjoy their much deserved break.
Accommodation 'fitted the bill' exactly
We were 6 people who needed 4 bedroom; 2 bathroom/shower accommodation. No 40 Church Street, St Paul's fitted the bill exactly/ Well situated just 50 metres from the sea and with restaurants and grocery shops nearby - the closest just 3 doors away and had everything we needed on a daily 'top-up' basis. The bus route is again nearby (100 metres) with a large selection of buses for any destination,
Preparations for our stay were assisted beyond expectations by Josephine Magro who could not have been more helpful with our many requests.
The house is 'traditional' old Maltese so do not expect a modern uptodate state of decor or furniture BUT it is more than adequate and has everything that is needed for a relaxed holiday. There are plenty of heaters for winter and fans for summer. If there is anything you need you just ask Josephine Magro who is happy to help and lives just across the road.
We had a wonderful early spring holiday.
Thank you very much for your review. It is very much appreciated. I am very happy that you had a wonderful holiday in Malta and I hope that if you do return you will pay me a visit as it will be good to see you again.
It was like stepping back in time.
We loved our stay in St Paul's bay. The house was charming, full of character and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely return!
Thank you for your review for my Maltese House of Character.
Yes you are right. Your review is an echo of the majority of my guests who express their delight in choosing my house as their holiday home.
The patterned and coloured floor tiles, the wooden beams, the high ceiling, the stone staircase all contribute to a unique experience. I am often told by my guests that by living in the house they know they are in Malta and not in a flat which could be anywhere in the world. As all flats look alike.!! I hope to host you again.
A great base with beautiful views
We loved this place, full of character with a well supplied kitchen and a beautiful garden. Would thoroughly recommend !
Thank you dear friends for your wonderful review.
It was lovely to have the opportunity to get to know you and to be your host.
I look forward to seeing you again with all your family.
Dejligt autentisk hus med charme.
Huset er gammelt, men velholdt og hyggeligt. En dejlig gårdhave med skygge. Tæt på stranden og med alle indkøbsmuligheder lige rundt om hjørnet.
Josephine og Mary, som ejer huset, er søde og meget imødekommende. Vi kan kun anbefale et ophold her.
Thank you for your wonderful review. It is an honour accommodating guests like you. Mary and I wish you all the best.
St Paul's Bay is a traditional quiet fishing village situated to the north west of the island of Malta. It is made up of some particularly beautiful, natural geological features. The locality enjoys beautiful scenery, made up of large expanses of plateau, high ridge areas overlooking steep-sided valleys, beautiful beaches and rocky promenades. It is situated 16 km away from Valletta, the capital city. It is very close to the popular summer resorts of Bugibba and Qawra where you can find numerous bars, restaurants and other entertainment venues. The best sandy beaches in Malta are only twenty minutes away, although the swimming is excellent just down the road from the house from the rocky beach. There is a good bus service to almost all localities in Malta including the main historical sites like the Hypogeum. It is also 30minutes away from the ferry that takes you to the island of Gozo. It is situated very close to the Language Schools in St Paul's Bay. Golf: The Golf course is situated at Marsa which is about 30 minutes by car away from St Paul's Bay.
