Full property description

Albeit being economically friendly, this apartment offers all the facilities one might need for a truly superb holiday experience. The location of this charming apartment is a major asset – it is located literally around the corner from the renowned Sliema Promenade, being enviably walking distance away from restaurants, bars and also from Malta’s largest shopping centre, Tigne Point. For the more adventurous - a sunny, rocky beach is located just downhill from this Shopping Centre, and thus just a short walk away from the apartment.
The apartment itself has a vintage feel to it, with traditional Maltese high ceilings which give it a grandiose aura. The open plan kitchen, dining room and living area make the most out of the space, while also being practical and well-equipped, making it ideal for cooking home-cooked meals.

The master bedroom is fully air-conditioned, and provides a well-needed resting space after your Maltese adventures. The bathroom comes with a full-size bath-tub, which in itself is equipped with a shower. We provide you with bath towels and linen, so there is no need to carry any extra baggage whatsoever. The apartment also comes with a washing machine, and we offer complementary Wifi internet service throughout. The building is also furnished with an elevator, so no need to worry about going up long flights of stairs!
Being as central as it is, this apartment is an ideal base for anyone who wishes to still enjoy the many treasures of our islands, while not breaking the bank. Having every amenity you might need at walking distance also lessens commutes for daily chores, and leaves more time for exploring. Thus, if you are looking for a budget-friendly property in the very heart of Sliema, Malta’s hub, this apartment is the right choice for you.
Sliema is a major tourism spot on the northeastern coast of the beautiful island of Malta. Visitors here will find an abundance of relaxing holiday activities available, as well as restaurants, shopping and nightlife. In recent years the town has experienced significant growth, with modern villas and apartments abounding as well as one of Malta’s best hotels.
Visitors can therefore enjoy fine shopping and dining as part of their stay here. There is also plentiful opportunity for relaxing beach activities such as an idyllic cruse, or water sports such as snorkeling and diving.
It is quite impossible to list down all the details about every tourist spot and every activity to do in Malta. Malta may be a smaller country of Europe, but it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. From the language, to archaeological and historical paces, there are lots of places to visit which are thousands of years old. Malta is a stunning place of natural beauty and also one of the most agreeable climates in the Mediterranean. The climate in Malta is hot and dry in summer, with adequate rainfall, warm autumns, and cool winters (without frost or snow).
For those who want to get away from the busy life in the city to get lazy on the warm sand all day long without doing anything but relaxing, Malta is one recommended tourist attraction. You can laze in the sun on the sandy beaches in the morning and go out at night at a bar or disco until the wee hours in morning. You can go visit historical places and learn about the culture of the Maltese people. This one little island may be small in size, but it’s full of many artistic treasures.

Electricity & Water Usage
We operate a fair usage policy. The limited allowance is very generous and should more than suffice on normal usage. However, if lights and particularly air-conditioning are unnecessarily left on when not in the property or if the water is left running for no reason the allowance will be exceeded. Air-conditioning should NOT be left running if doors, windows or other apertures are left open as this will cause consumption to spike. Both electricity and water meters will be read on arrival and departure to calculate the usage. In the event that you have used more than the allowance for the property, the additional usage will be charged at current rates and deducted from your security bond [electricity will be charged extra at a rate of 0.35 Euros per unit (1kwh)]
Please note that for longer stays of 28 days or more the above does not apply. Water, electricity, gas has to be paid as much as consumed. This is subject to one's own consumption rate. Water comes at a flat rate of 35euro a month.
