About Sonette Aboud

My name is Sonette Aboud nd I moved from the UK to Malta in 2013. My daughter and I manage various holiday accommodation apartments, hotel and studio's and we have opened a Boutique hotel called Casa Birmula in Cospicua last year.

Malta is a wonderful tourist destination and we cater for all holiday makers.

I am very well traveled and have been to 110 countries. I think we do have the expertise to cater for the guest who would like that extra touch in service and accommodation.

Sonette Aboud purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Sonette Aboud chose Ix-Xemxija

This gorgeous brand new development attracted my attention when I drove past the unfinished building a few times last year. I decided to purchase two maisonettes and has been thrilled with my choice. It is opposite a beautiful and relaxing promenade for great walks and swimming in the sea. The views are spectacular and it has many lovely restaurants and even a pool club right on the doorstep! This is really a dream come true....sun, sea, swimming pool and very beautiful accommodation!

It is also very close to a main shopping street. Fresh veg and fruit stalls are just outside the apartment for daily shopping.

What makes this apartment unique

The main benefits of Harbour View Place will be the proximity to the most popular sandy beaches in Malta! It is 10 minutes by car. The local beach across the road is great for a morning swim and stroll along the beach.

If you are a walker, the ancient Roman trail is right on your doorstep and will be great for winter picnics and excursions. The ferry to Gozo is 15 minutes away.

Unique benefits are the proximity to gorgeous sandy beaches and a super stylish and beautiful apartment close to the sea front.

Lovely clean apartment. Spacious and great location. Good restaurants within walking distance and easy bus access to St Pauls and all over the Island. Aqua bar and pool looked lovely but closed due to time of year (March). Very much looking forward to coming back and Sonnette very welcoming and helpful. A great long weekend.


Response from Sonette:

Thank you Terrance for your kind review. Come back in the summer and enjoy Magic Malta once again!

Lovely apartment, but needs more A/C

  • 4 of 5

We mostly enjoyed our stay in this well-appointed apartment. The pictures are an accurate representation of the apartment and access to the pool across the street was definitely a huge bonus!

However, please note that this apartment does not have central A/C. There is only one A/C unit in the master bedroom (which I don't think was abundantly clear in the listing). Our recent vacation coincided with a heat wave with temperatures around 115 F!! Needless to say, A/C was definitely needed in order for us to completely have enjoyed our stay. Thankfully, I was sleeping in the air conditioned master bedroom. But my friend, who joined us on the trip was definitely not pleased with her sleeping arrangements due to the excessive heat. There were two fans in the apartment, but they were basically useless against temperatures that high.

Beatiful apartment

  • 4 of 5

A lovely warm welcome from Sonette, the owner made a great start to our holiday

Apartment is very large and beautifully furnished, with a well equipped kitchen and great courtyard seating area outdoors with great seating options, piles of cushion and a large dining table and chairs

Nearby swimming pool and bar serving drinks and snacks (just need to make a purchase to use the pool)

Bus stop just at the bottom of the hill, buses are frequent and €1.50 per journey taking you to bars and restaurants or shady beaches

Great bus service to and from the airport, probably around 40mins journey

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

Just arrived home from this very spacious appartment that had everything you needed. Quite resort a stones throw from busier resorts if you want to see more of the island. Booking was easy, we got prompt replies to lots of emails when asking different things about the apartment and the area. We were given lots of ideas on things to do and places to visit. Great recommendations about the best beaches. The pool over the road always had sunbeds to use and the bar was well priced.

We were met at the airport by the owner who gave us the keys. As there was no booking the day we left we were able to stay until we wanted as our flight was not until late in the evening.

I left a jacket in the apartment and the owner is kindly going to send it to me, much appreciated.

Fabulous Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Sonette's apartment is perfect. We were a group of 4 adults and a teenager, in addition we had many visitors (for a brew or a wine) as our wider family were in Malta for a wedding. Everyone thought the apartment was stunning (much better than where they were staying!!) The apartment is amazingly spacious, and equipped with everything you will need. The view from the front is stunning, and there is a mini market nearby where you can buy anything you need as well as yummy bread. The Roman Road just behind the apartment is a wonderful walk. We found a lovely cove where we swam each morning..... I wish I was there again!

Super impressed by this luxurious apartment exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Sonette organised a taxi from airport, John who was lovely he took us to apartment where Sonette met us and showed us around which was a lovely touch.

The apartment is exactly as pictured and the sun trap outside was perfect for us to sunbath in privacy.

One thing that isn't given justice is the beautiful view right outside the front door! Every morning we'd open the door and eat our toast whilst looking at the sea.

Shop just down road which was ideal, pool across road, we went here for food which was lovely.

Bus stop at bottom of road will take you anywhere on the island for €1.50!

Perfect apartment which made our holiday. Sonette has furnished the apartment to a high standard and the tele has any channel or film you want!

Defiantly visit again!

A big and luxuriously furnished apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with two children and had a very good time in the place of Sonette. She is a very hostile person, can give you a lot of tips of how to best spent your time in Malta or can organize different events for you, like renting a boot or safari in Malta islands. We didn't miss anything during our stay. We loved the terrace and the huge rooms there. We would visit this place anytime!
