Greetings Traveller! I welcome you to our little sunny island and to my home. This cozy room (We call it the Blue room) is a spacious bedroom with 2 single beds, a shared bathroom, dresser, spacious desk, hair dryer, TV with DVD (in main room), WIFI and all the comforts of your own home. The apartment is a large 180 sqm property with a large kitchen with fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, a study, and another living area. I also have a spacious roof where you can sunbathe and catch the sun! Easy parking outside.
We are based in Santa Venera which is a quiet town with amenities within 5 minutes walking distance (supermarkets, public garden, stationary, bus stop , hair dresser, post office etc) - yet extremely central. Bus stops taking you to Valletta,Sliema or to the beaches are 5 minutes walk away, but with a car you would make the most of your time as you could drive to almost anywhere within 15 minutes.
I work in real estate but I have worked for 5 years in the tourism industry, so if you want a few tips on where to go, what to see and what to do before you arrive, feel free to drop me an email. Looking forward to meeting you and helping you experience Malta!
Ma Casa Su Casa – as they say in Spain. That is how I see my guests and I understand you are on holiday and you want to enjoy yourselves but I want to write down a few rules to make everything smoother.
1) Respect the house and other guests. I am a very laid back person and I get along with most people so I expect people to do the same. The apartment is large and there is plenty of room for everybody.
2) I respect your privacy and feel free to lock your rooms – however don’t lose the key – the keys to the main door and the apartment are easy to replace but those of the rooms aren’t. I prefer you spend your money on fun things, not locksmiths :)
3) Dexter. Dexter is our little furry friend. He is quite loud and excitable but a very friendly dog when he gets used to you. I work long hours and I usually put him on the roof as he has lots of fun chasing the birds, but I don’t do that in the summer. If for some reason I am not there and he is downstairs when you wake up just take him up on the roof as he would need to do his business. You can leave him upstairs until you leave but bring him down and put him in the kitchen – close the door of the study well (will show you how). He loves his food but don’t feed him too much - also be sure to close your doors when he is around as he loves to leave little presents in your rooms!
4) Water and Electricity – going back to rule 1 – I would appreciate if you are careful with wastage of electricity and water – both are very expensive in Malta. You know the drill – don’t leave things on if not in the room.
5) Smoking. No smoking is generally allowed in the house. Feel free to smoke on the roof.
6) Food & Drink. I have one rule: whatever you have just replace it. You all have your own stuff but I don’t expect everyone to have their own coffee, milk, cheese, ham etc so replace what you eat or drink.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is not polite to having a drink without offering to your host :)
Thanks and enjoy your stay!
