The experience with staying at Christine's apartment was fantastic. To start with Christine and her husband Paul, picked us up at the airport, even though our plane was delayed and it came in at 4am! They were there with a cute little sign welcoming us to Malta, and then drove us to the apartment.
The apartment itself was lovely, very nicely furnished (everything is brand new), spacious and clean, comfortable bed, good shower, big kitchen and looks exactly like the pictures. With a great terrace, which we sat and had our breakfast on every morning, looking out over Msida. It is very close to bus stops, only a 2min walk in either direction, and also a supermarket is about a 5min walk away. Sliema and Valleta are about a 20/30min walk. We did both walks, which was nice, but in the August heat we caught the bus most days, which takes about 5min.
Msida was a nice area, we found everyone to be friendly and helpful, and even walking back to the apartment at around 1am, we didnt have any problems.
Although the apartment and the area were great, I would have to say that Christine and Paul were what made our trip to Malta really special. They were extremely helpful and very easy to get in touch with if we needed anything, from booking taxis, to recommending restaurants and even taking us out for a drink on our last night. They also would have taken us to the airport when we were leaving, but it was Pauls birthday and we didnt want him getting out of bed early to take us!
They're such a lovely couple and are the perfect representation of the friendly and giving Maltese people. The apartment was like a home away from home, and they treated us as part of their family while we were there. If you want to come to Malta and get a taste of what the Maltese hospitality is like, then this is the place to book! On our next stay in Malta, we will defiantly book this place again!
Thanks Christine and Paul for such a lovely stay xo
