A corner away from the sea-front, this penthouse is the perfect property rental for people looking for a central area yet a quiet residential zone for resting at night. One has easy access to explore the rest of the Island. Just cross the street and you get to the bus stop. One side takes you to the St Julians & Paceville and the other takes you to Valletta from where you can take a bus to everywhere.
For those looking for a relaxing holiday just 5 minutes away you get to promenade and the beach (white rocky one), the surf lido and a lot of restaurants are just a street away. Enjoy walking along the sea-front promenade and try some of the best restaurants and pubs along the way.

This penthouse is on the 3rd floor. It Consists of an open plan kitchen/living/dining with fully equipped kitchen leading to a sunny terrace with spectacular views of Sliema with all its churches coming out majestically from the buildings.
Then upstairs, served with a spiral stairs one can find the main bedroom and yet another small terrace with views. The bathroom is situated on the lower floor next to the living area. Cable TV and Internet are complimentary.
Sliema was once just a fishing village on the north-east coast of Malta but later on it started to become popular for the wealthy Valletta residents who built summer residences here. The commercial centre is The Ferries - in the days before regular bus services, the Ferries used to connect Sliema to Valletta. Nowadays the Harbour Cruises and Gozo Tours set off from there and there is still a Ferry to Valletta. There are also a number of cafes and shops patronised by locals from all over Malta as well as tourists.
Though to the given modern twist due to newly built apartments one could go into the side streets where there are many of the town`s authentic houses which are now under preservation orders. There aren`t really any historical sites apart from the Churches.
Full of shops, entertainment establishments, rocky beaches and best of all the 5 km long Sea Front Promenade with a number of bars and restaurants with plenty of seating all along. There are beach lido`s and Water Polo clubs that offer all amenities and a large pool to visitors, also facilities for Water Sports. It starts from St Julians Spinola Bay to Manoel Island in Marsamxett Harbour .
The Sliema promontory has stunning views of Valletta on one side with open sea on the other. Along the Promenade one can enjoy the lovely view of our Mediterranean sea, with some bays and inlets. There is also a garden along the sea shore - lovely for relaxing.
There is only a small sandy beach, but the limestone beach is excellent for sunbathing and there is easy access to the sea. Nothing beats a dip in the blue sea! Sliema has the advantage of a good bus service with direct buses to most places of interest.
In Summer and fine Winter days, whole families congregate on the Front for a leisurely evening or afternoon. It is also serves as a meeting place for the locals. Whenever the sea is rough in winter, it`s awesome to see the huge waves pounding the rocky beaches.
Sliema adjoins St Julians and although they have very different cultures and share the Promenade , in a way they can be considered one big town.
