Stayed here with 5 friends in August this year, Marthese was great. A 5 min walk to the shops and a 12min walk to the centre were there are a few restaurants, bars etc these are local bars not touristy ones, prices are very cheap. The accom had thing you need, well equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms with washing machine etc.
We found this to be the perfect villa for us and Marthese was the best host you could wish for. She was so understanding when Goldcar messed up our car rental and made us an hour and a half late - we kept in contact by texting. Marthese gave us a very warm welcome, leaving us enough provisions for a light meal and drinks which was very welcome due to the late arrival. She was also able to advise on the trips etc that we had booked with an extensive knowledge of the island. Marthese is on hand by text if needed which was reassuring and we also bumped into her when going out or arriving back at the villa. The pool was clean and spacious and is only shared with Marthese and her family so it is a peaceful place to read your book etc. All the amenities in the villa are excellent quality and in new condition. I cannot think of anything that we needed that was not provided. The big fridge freezer and excellent oven meant I could prepare meals easily and you could choose to sit at the kitchen table or at a table by the pool. We were provided with separate towels for the bathroom, pool and beach another thoughtful touch. There are two large shower rooms - one near the pool - very convenient after a swim. The twin bedroom has air con and 2 large fans are also provided which meant we were able to keep the villa at a comfortable temp. The villa is in a small close therefore it is very quiet and parking the hire car was easy. From Naxxar you are able to access all parts of the island in 25 minutes or so, an excellent base for visiting the sights which we did every day. Food shopping: Valyou in Naxxar is huge and has everything you could hope to buy, we parked in a small road opposite. Iceland in Qawra stocks all the iceland food you would normally expect. Pama shopping village is good for anything else you might need and has another large supermarket and free parking and The Point Shopping Mall at Sliema was excellent for retail therapy with all the big brands plus international brands of good quality. Bugibba is only 10 mins drive and you can park on a side street and have a meal or ice cream and wander along the sea front - very pretty. Buses are plentiful and stops are everywhere. Thank you Marthese for a super holiday, best wishes.
Our family of four found the apartment extremely spacious and comfortable with every kitchen utensil you could need. The 3 bedrooms immaculate, again each one with plenty of room. The pool was a particular highlight - not massive but perfect for a relaxing dip and as the lovely owner and family used it very briefly, we more or less had it to ourselves - the close proximity of a good shower/wc room being really convenient (we had access to 2 bathrooms throughout the stay which, with teenagers was very welcome)
All in all, Marthese the owner couldn't do enough for you but wasn't at all intrusive - leaving us helpful directions to local amenities and being around if needed.
The apartment building itself was very attractive with a variety of well tended plants and trees framing a small yet ideal sun trap and barbeque area adjacent to the pool so everything you could need was in one place.
The small town of Naxxar has enough grocery smaller outlets with a Lidl supermarket nearby also has a few restaurants but all in all we would recommend car hire to make the most of holiday sightseeing generally.
We would definitely recommend this apartment for those wanting superior accommodation with easy access to nearby Maltese tourist attractions and beaches.
We stayed in Marthese's apartment for a week. We had a great time exploring Malta before attending our son's wedding on Thursday. The apartment was about a twelve minute walk to the bus stop. Good bus service and easy to get around to visit all the historic sites. The Maltese people are very friendly and helpful. Returning to our lovely apartment at night was a pleasure. It was spacious and well equipped and Marthese was great. She even came to pick us up when we got lost. My son and his wife made good use of the pool. The wedding day was superb too. Would love to go back one day.
We were met by the owner marthese on arrival who is a lovely lady nothing was to much trouble for her. She had lots of information on Malta and the surrounding area to get our holiday of to a great start.
The location of naxxar is perfect to explore the island n the area around the church in naxxar is lovely.
The apartment is large very spacious and with luxury furnishings and modern amenities pool and terrace.
We had a lovely holiday and would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.
Thank you again marthese
The location of the house is great. There is a huge supermarket about 800 meters away, it is in the center of everything in Malta.
The house was very big and clean. Everything worked fine and was ready to be used.
There were snacks, power adapters, mosquito repellents when arriving, which was very helpful.
Marthese was really kind, helpful and never disturbed us at a bad time. She helped us pick out the places to go, so we were never bored.
It was an amazing stay in Malta and I would highly recommend staying with Marthese!
