I have been in Malta from Saturday till Wednesday. Attracted by the low price of the flat and close to the night life, I have chosen this entire apartment in order to have my privacy and quiet holidays. The owner kindly offered me (under payment) to pick me up from the airport and further advised me before the booking that some work in order to renew a room should be done only on saturday (day of my arrival). I accepted although I expressly told him that my purpose was to have a quiet permanence in the flat without anyone around and he has expressly ensured me about it. Once arrived on Saturday, the owner told me that the worker didn't want come on Saturday and they decided to move the appointment on Monday without consider that maybe could be better to postpone these works after my permanence. As said I rented this house for to be alone without any guests or people and unfortunately this flat is not a real private flat but had only one entrance shared with the owners who lives just upstair (they should write it clearly in the advertise). The first morning after (Sunday) I felt people and noisy in the flat (on my floor) and the second day (Monday) was impossible to sleep for the whole day because of the work and various noise in the flat (from 07:00 till 16:00). The day after (Tuesday) incredible but true, the worker came from 07:00 to 09:20 without to receive any advise by the owner about it, I felt from my room big discussions of people just outside my bedroom door at very early morning. Last night in Malta I preferred to move by my friend place and leave the flat. I hope that I will not repeat an experience like this.

Response from Mary:
I am surprised at Silvio's comments. It is true that the works had to be postponed to another day since the workman was sick. We told Silvio about it and he accepted the fact that the workman will come on Monday instead of Saturday. It is not true that we have one entrance to the apartment. There are two entrances - one from the street and the other is a connecting door between the lower apartment and the upper apartment. We only use the connecting door as required - such as cleaning the rooms, kitchen and bathroom. We are very careful not to disturb our guests as much as possible when we see their room's door closed. We do not intrude into their privacy. On Sunday we had some other works to do in our garage and checked to see if Silvio was in. Since he was not in, we proceeded with the works. We tried a number of times to contact him about the works but he was never around. On the other hand he never came out to air his complaints to us, in which case we would have tried to find a solution. The day before he left we managed to get in touch with him (from behind the bathroom door) to see at what time he will be checking out. He said that he will be leaving approximately at 9am. The day after he sent a message that he slept at his friend's place because he was closer to the airport! I tried to see him to see how things were going but I never managed to see his face! We hope we will never have a similar guest who finds it very difficult to communicate with hosts and later give negative reviews. Mary

Mary and Ben's apartment was clean and had everything we needed. It is not modern and definitely not the Four Seasons Hotel, as one can see on the pictures, but practicable enough for everyone who is looking for a basic and cheap accommodation. It is close enough to the sea to go swimming, a pharmacy and grocery store are nearby. The neighborhood is calm and offers a lot of parking spaces. Mary and Ben are really nice and caring people, I wished every airbnb host could be like them.

My friend and I, from Canada, just happened to have this lovely ground floor vacation home all to ourselves over the Christmas holidays. This is unusual considering the very reasonable rental fee. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. The host had us picked up from the airport on our arrival, and because it was Boxing Day, even had some groceries in the fridge for us to start the next day with. As some of the evenings were cooler, we were supplied with a large very effective heater. We could see and walk to the ocean from the home. It was only 10 minutes walk to Paceville where there's a lot of action. The bus stop is one block away and the bus system took us all over the island to some amazing places. We felt very much at home here at Mary's and would definitely come back.

Benny and Mary were completely lovely hosts. They gave us valuable tips on Malta and help whenever possible. They shared with us each morning and it was very valuable. About the room is exactly as advertised. The location of the house is good and the access to the bus is only 50m. Perhaps an improvement in the bathroom (the box is too small) was good. But the service is very true to what is advertised. I recommend!

Mary was an excellent host. With her living upstairs we saw her several times a day; she would popped in to make sure everything was OK and let us know when the festa was on. She even brought us fresh fruit for breakfast. So very kind. The location is excellent, very relaxing and right near the sea. We had a car and it was a perfect base. We walked into St Julian's most evenings. We had a wonderful time at Mary's and would recommend. Be aware that this is shared accommodation with other guests. I searched for "entire home" hoping for a private place but this is rented on a room by room basis. This is said in the listing, but it seems I didn't read it clear enough and neither did the other guests there with us.

Mary and Berry were excellent hosts. The place we staid was clean, closed to the sea and the bus station. There was a great grocery store nearby. We liked the beach near the house very much. Mary and Berry informed us about the island and they were always ready to help. Thank you verry much. We hope to come back and see you again. Meta, Neja, Rok :)
