Lovely little appartment, clean and bright. Slept my wife, two grown kids and myself with plenty of space. Walk out the door, turn left and you have a convenience store at the end of the street, further down little bars and restaurants on right and left is gate to the city with bus stops. Turn left from front door and down the street to the marina you a lovely scenic dock area and a boat that does a return trip to Valletta for under 3 euros including the lift up to baracca gardens. You need to park just outside the city(2 mins from appartment) in the evening as it's permit parking only and you'll get fined about 25 Euros. Loved the stay, very quiet and peaceful area. Hosts are lovely, even left us coffee, milk, bread, eggs etc to get us started. Highly recommended for a peaceful stay and to explore the island. A credit to air BnB.

- beautiful apartment situated in a great part of Birgu with shops and restaurants nearby - Christine and Ross were fantastic hosts and really thought of everything we needed for our stay - the apartment is great for any couple looking to stay in Malta with a desire to travel around the island. We were able to drive to the south of the island, Rabat, Valetta on numerous occasions and St Julian's among others very easily from Birgu, with journeys taking around half hour on average. There is a great convenience store (Malaya Store) open 6am - 12pm 4pm-6pm every day literally 15 seconds from the apartment and other shops nearby. There is a great fruit and vegetable market every Tuesday from 6am till lunchtime about 2 mins walk from the apartment. This apartment is easily one of the best places I've stayed at - thanks to Christine and Ross

This beautiful apartment is in a historic culturally rich area of Malta close to great transport links to get you across the whole island. Christine and Ross' place has everything you'd need to stay in and be comfy but is located right next to the incredible harbour and a lot of local restaurants and an amazing wine bar! On top of all this Christine and Ross are wonderful hosts who go above and beyond to help out their guests and make you feel welcome. I would completely recommend this place to anyone for any length of stay wanting to get a real feel for Malta. Thank you so much for having me for 6 weeks and I will definitely be back x

This is an excellent location, has loads of character and charm as well as history right on your doorstep. I enjoyed the ferry rides to Valletta, the buses to further places - oh, and a glass of wine in the local square at dusk! It's a very friendly and unspoilt neighbourhood.

Christine and Ross’ place, in a beautiful and historic building, has been decorated sympathetically and with an stylish eye for detail. It is located in a part of Malta where the local character has survived the effects of mass tourism and economic development better than in other places. There are still tour groups wandering around, but it doesn’t detract from the place as much as we encountered elsewhere in the crowded islands of Malta and Gozo. We were unreservedly enthusiastic about this airbnb and had a very agreeable stay. Christine responded within seconds to our communications and helped us out when we needed a hand. Thanks so much!

Lovely place in a pretty relaxed and calm area. We really enjoyed walking through the little streets in Birgu surrounding the apartment. The communication with Christine & Ross was excellent, they even kept contact while we were staying and shared helpful tips. We'd love to come back soon!

We had a wonderful time at Christine and Ross' place. Birgu is amazing and their place was perfectly located for us to grab a morning coffee in the square, or catch the ferry to Valletta or have a delicious dinner in the evening. Not only was Ross kind enough to pick us up at the airport when we arrived, but also helped us get home when we got caught by surprise by a storm. I'd highly Christine and Ross' place not just for its location and charm, but also for the owners' commitment to help their guests make the most of their holiday.
