Penthouse apartment overview - owner's description

High finished Duplex Penthouse in one of the best streets of Msida, it is very central and minutes away from the major Arrival bus routes and 5 minutes walk from the Yacht Marina.

This luxurious finished duplex penthouse is situated on top of a modern block of apartments on the fourth floor and is served by lift. It consist of three bedrooms at ground floor and a family bathroom, upstairs is the large open plan Kitchen/ Living/ Dining and another bathroom.

The open plan living area leads to two sun terraces, complete with sunbeds and outdoor furniture. Also included is a gas barbeque. This place is ideal for people seeking a relaxed holiday in a beautiful and fully finished apartment. The location of this apartment makes it an ideal spot from where to explore the entire island. It is located 5 minutes (by bus) away from the capital city Valletta in one direction and 5 minutes away to Sliema and St Julians the other direction.

The apartment is located in the centre of Msida. Msida or Imsida is a harbour town in Malta with a population of 7,623. The town is located just west of Valletta on the northeast coast of Malta. The town enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry, sunny summers and short, cool winters.

The neighbouring towns of Msida are Ta' Xbiex, Gzira, Sliema, St.Julians, San Gwann, Birkirkara, Santa Venera, Hamrun and Pietà. Msida is an important town for all travellers as many of the country's bus routes pass through it.

The patron saint of Msida is Saint Joseph while the protector is The Holy Conception. For a week and a half in July, the town celebrates the feast of St. Joseph. The feast of Msida is also famous for its traditional game “Il-Gostra”.

The Mater Dei Hospital is located in the outskirts of Msida. It was inaugurated by the prime minister of Malta Dr. Gonzi in June 2007 and has a total floor area of 232,000m2 and approximately 8,000 rooms. It also houses a teaching facility for the University of Malta.

Its name comes from an Arabic word meaning "a fisherman's dwelling". However it could also be derived from the word 'Omm Sidna' meaning 'The Mother of Our Lord' since there could have been a small chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God.

Msida was previously an old fishing village. Although it is now more urbanised, some fishermen still operate in the village.

Msida became a parish in 1867. Then the settlement was centered around the hovels located inward at Valley Road, and some nearby ancillary roads and pathways which led up to the quaint district of Villambrosa. This status did not last long however, as a new parish Hamrun was hived off in 1881. Today the lowest part of Villambrosa Street remains a silent reminder of Msida's jurisdiction in this area.

In the late 19th century, a floating British navy hydraulic dock was also planned at the central part of Msida close to where the Torpedo Depot used to stand. The plan was soon aborted but instead, this area would in later years experience a booming yacht marina service, which has been growing ever since, thanks to new incentive policies issued by the central government.

Please note that the rental price does not include the Environmental Contribution tax, introduced on June 2016 amounting to €0.50c per night up to a maximum of €5 for each continuous stay in the Maltese Islands. This applies for 18-year-old and older.

Electricity & Water Usage

We operate a fair usage policy. The limited allowance is very generous and should more than suffice on normal usage. However, if lights and particularly air-conditioning are unnecessarily left on when not in the property or if the water is left running for no reason the allowance will be exceeded. Air-conditioning should NOT be left running if doors, windows or other apertures are left open as this will cause consumption to spike. Both electricity and water meters will be read on arrival and departure to calculate the usage. In the event that you have used more than the allowance for the property, the additional usage will be charged at current rates and deducted from your security bond [electricity will be charged extra at a rate of 0.35 Euros per unit (1kwh)]
Electricity - 200kWh weekly

From Ossett, United Kingdom Sep 2012

Lovely apartment on 2 floors in a quiet area within easy walking distance of Sliema Harbour area and a bus stop just around the corner.
The property could have done with a good clean before we arrived....bathmats dirty but easily rectified by the washing machine and the mop was un-useable, had to buy a new one. It just felt a bit uncared for, plates were chipped and there wasnt enough crockery or any condiments....small things but important.
It would have been nice if there had been an information pack ref the bus service or things to see in the area, we felt a bit lost for the first day until we orientating ourselves.
Bedrooms were lovely and spacious and beds comfy. Lovely holiday and would stay here again even with the small niggles.
