The area: Birgu is a beautiful town, a joy to walk through every day, and conveniently situated. There is a nice range of restaurants within easy walking distance and a handy ferry for reaching other areas easily. We enjoyed trips to Valetta, Sliema and the Blue Lagoon. The harbour/marina was somewhat like Venice, minus the crowds!
The house: Alfie's place is lovely. Small and very traditional with great character and on a beautiful old fashioned street. We always enjoyed returning to it at the end of our days out!
Alfie: He was really helpful and friendly. He went out of his way to ensure the house was ready for us (e.g. milk and bread in the fridge, beach towels for borrowing). He was happy to meet us at the airport and introduce us to the locality which saved a lot of time when it came to finding our way around.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would definitely recommend Alfie's Place as somewhere to stay!

Just finished a week long stay in Alfie's place and had a lovely time. The flat is beautiful with everything you could need including a clean, spacious bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds, AC, wifi and a small balcony. It's situated on a quiet street but with a square with cafés, bars and shops right around the corner. The beautiful marina where you can get the ferry to Valletta is only a couple of minutes walk away.
Alfie was a wonderful host, very accommodating and helpful. He supplied us with beach towels and there was even bottled water, milk, tea and basic food stuffs in the fridge when we arrived!
Would absolutely recommend it!

Myself, partner and 4yr old daughter have just had a week at Alfie's place, such a pretty Maltese house really gives you an idea of Maltese living yet the house is modern and lovely.
Got the water bus (3 cities ferry) to Valletta everyday only 10 minutes ride but lovely start to your day. Beautiful places to visit The National aquarium is a must see and there is some great fish restaurants.
D' Centre is a little restaurant in the square about 200 yards from the house and Alfie our host is a very helpful nice guy.
We will be back.
Me and my friend stayed 3 nights at Alfies place.
We really loved the Birgu neighborhood and Alfies apartment, an unique and authentic historical experience. You get close to the local Maltese way of life. Very relaxing and laidback.
Alfie is a very reliable and fun guy. He gave us a good introduction to the neighborhood and was very helpful.
Great value! I'd recommend it to friends.
