Host review score

Marvik Borg
This property has been recently refurbished to very high standards, and we're offering our guests a unique Maltese experience, residing in a quiet village, an ideal base to explore the Maltese islands. For those travellers staying in Gozo (sister island) we offer the opportunity to stay with us either for their first night (if the arrival flight is late in the evening) or for their last night (if they have an early flight). We can also offer you accommodation options in Gozo. We can provide airport transfers and other transfers to other locations.
I have been working in the hospitality industry for more than 20 years! Though I've met so many guests over the years, I still feel the same excitement I had back then, when meeting our new guests! It's always exciting to meet new people, learn from new cultures and give hosts an experience they will never forget.
Luqa is located in the Southern Region of Malta, quite central though, with easy access to the rest of the island. An old town with a dense population, typical of the Maltese Islands, having a population of about 6000 inhabitants. The Village Parish Church is dedicated to Saint Andrew, whose feast is celebrated on the 1st weekend of July. Street decoration and fireworks are synonymous with this traditional feast! All amenities are close by: pharmacists, banks & ATMs, grocers & greengrocers, butchers shops, takeaways, super-market and more!
