We had an amazing time at Dario's apartment. It was very comfortable, was situated in a wonderful location, and was absolutely gorgeous! Dario was attentive to every detail, and helpful in every way. We will be back! And, we will recommend this apartment to everyone!

“Fantastic location, great apartment, superb host”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at Dario's property for a week at the end of August / beginning of September and had a fantastic week! The communications we had with Dario prior to the holiday, during the holiday and even post holiday were very easy and his response time very quick. He answered all our questions swiftly, offered to collect us from the airport, and offered to buy grocery supplies on our behalf prior to our arrival.

The apartment was spacious and airy, and the air-conditioning a godsend at night. The view across Marsascala bay was amazing and the whole family spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony watching the world go by and admiring the fantastic view.

You really couldn't get any closer to the sea for a cooling swim. The kids loved swimming off the rocks and the in-built step ladders made getting in and out of the water really easy. We bought plastic slip-on swimming shoes for the kids as the rocks were a bit uncomfortable to step on in places, and there is a sandy beach round the corner in St Tomas Bay if you want one.

We hired a car, although we could have done without one - there are small supermarkets within walking distance, and the main "promenade" with a huge range of restaurants and bars are only around a 10-minute walk away. We drove through Valetta one day but the traffic is very dense and parking spaces minimal, so if we visited it again we would take the bus.

All in all, a great holiday and we would definitely love to go back!

“Amazing location! Everything you need. Fantastic owner”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Dario has been amazing from the beginning. Communication has been fantastic, he has even messaged me during our stay just to make sure we didn't need anything. We asked for some extra towels and they were delivered the next day for us. The offer of our shopping prior to our arrival was a great help too. We have loved our 12 day stay at Marsascala and hope to come back. The unit was as described and in an amazing spot.

“Wonderful relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks in May and at the last minute our daughter, son in law and baby granddaughter decided to join us for 4 nights during our second week, Dario was most helpful, he provided a lovely cot and accepted the additional occupancy at no extra cost. We had an amazing time, the roof terrace provided pure relaxation for sunbathing, it was very hot which we love. The apartment has a homely feel and was not equipped with anything that was so grand that you had to be worried would get damaged for example our granddaughter managed to put sticky hand prints on the sofa throw so I just put it through the washing machine which although sounds like a plane taking off at full spin, works very well.
The views from the balcony are superb and we loved watching the colourful fishing boats going back and forth. We swam in the sea from the rocks in front of the apartment, rubber shoes are advised, we saw a couple of people who managed to cut their feet although many managed with bare feet.
The family park had our granddaughter in a frenzy of excitement, it is huge and very well thought out. The park at the end of the bay is great too and well used.
We hired a car for the first 3 days to allow us to get some shopping as we like to self cater, the driving is part of the experience but you get used to it and the bumpy roads. Having a freezer was a big plus and once we had hauled the big shop up the 3 flights of stairs we only needed fresh produce. The local bread is lovely and the vans selling fresh fruit and veg are reasonable and very tasty. The fishermen sell their daily catch and it was fascinating to see the variety of fish caught, it does not get fresher than this.
Dario was extremely helpful throughout and even allowed us to stay a little later on our last day as our flight was not until the evening and the next occupants were not arriving that day.
We loved this quiet residential apartment so much that we have booked to go again next May.
