I've traveled in a group of 4, so this location was a great pick for us, providing 3 bedrooms + a living room and 2 bathrooms (yup, there's never enough showers when you come back home after a day at the beach). The apartment is clean, well equipped (note for owners: a coffee machine would be great) and pretty quiet by our standards. There is only one A/C in the living room, so we had to sleep with our bedroom doors opened (there are also fans in 2 bedrooms, but in july - august they don't help too much.
The best sand beaches on the island are really close to Xemxija (within 5-6 km you have Golden Bay, Mellieha Bay, Għajn Tuffieħa Bay), but i'm not sure how easy is to access them by bus, as we decided to rent a car (we chose R&R Car Hire - they're called now BSG Car Rentals - who offer very good prices with no hidden costs). There's really not much to do in the evenings in Xemxija, so renting a car is a good idea... there are plenty of places where you can park the car close to Dolphin Court.
Also, if you decide to go to Golden Bay, don't hesitate to take any of the tours provided by Charlie on his Discovery speedboat... his tours offer top value for money.

The apartment is big enough but a main road is very close of the house and there is too much noise day and night. There are no blinds in the windows of two rooms, so you have the light inside at 6 a. m.
I had no contact at all with the owner and the map and instructions to come she gave me were wrong, so it tools two ours to find the house. In the kitchen there are very few elements, no coffee machine, no salt...
