My family and I stayed at By The Sea over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The owner of the property Hermine was incredibly helpful from the day we booked right the way through to after we left. Not only was she wonderfully accommodating with our late arrival, she organised a taxi and hire car so no stress for us. The house is beautiful and bigger than the pics suggest. It's over 3 floors with a bedroom and bathroom on each and kitchen and living room on the ground floor. It's right by the sea, slightly away from the main area of Bugibba so not too loud but easily accessed within a 5 min walk. There is a fantastic German restaurant next door who were only happy to let us have Christmas dinner there though we hadn't booked previously, amazing food and lovely owners. I would highly recommend By The Sea and hope to stay there again in the future.
