Paul found us this apartment at very short notice and it turned out to be such a real gem that we're already looking at the calendar to work out when we can return. It's 1 bedroom (which is exactly what we were looking for), but it's full of luxury details: the very well-equipped kitchen, the en-suite bathroom, the generous walk-in wardrobe, the lighting and, of course, that fabulous terrace. Most importantly, it was very clean and everything worked. Sliema is tightly packed, but because the penthouse is right at the top, the terrace caught the sun from mid-morning onwards; perfect for eating outside and sunbathing (we never found privacy to be an issue). The location is SO convenient; it's right by the promenade, so evening strolls and daytime runs were easy and interesting, multiple regular buses ran from the nearest bus stop on the promenade (Chalet) to Valletta and all other points, there's a huge choice of bars and restaurants nearby (we recommend family-run La Cuccagna for excellent, local cooking), there are 2 supermarkets within easy walking distance (Scotts is at the top of the street!), the shops at the centre of Sliema (and the ferry to Valletta) are 5 minutes walk away, the luxury of Tigne point is only 10 minutes walk away and there's an ATM at the Bank of Valletta branch, 20 meters from the front door. This apartment was everything we wanted it to be and was a significant factor in making this holiday the most relaxed of the five holidays we've taken in Malta so far. Highly recommended.
