Lovely house but noisy with expensive electricity and no parking
Dar Bajada is a lovely house. It has an enormous well equipped kitchen, cosy sitting room and four good sized bedrooms, one with its own bathroom. The swimming pool was lovely (if cold) and Rosa was very helpful, going out of her way to explain how everything worked and to help us manage the rubbish and recycling. The owner also provided lots of information in advance of our holiday and always responded to emails timely and fully.
However, we assumed with the 'old farmhouse' reference that the house would be quiet and peaceful. We found the street it was on noisy (I happened to be in one of the front bedrooms) - to be woken up by traffic noise most days is not really restful! There was also NO parking - we were told before we arrived that we should be able to find a space directly opposite the house and if not then one not far away. We NEVER found a space on the house's road and constantly had to park at least a 5 minute walk away. Ok when going out on a day trip, annoying when you had luggage or shopping.
We also didn't realise that electricity was not included in the price. We visited in October when Malta was pleasantly warm so no air con or heating was required. The electricity still cost us an extra 80 Euros on top of our rental price! This was 35c per unit which seemed very high to us.
Overall our stay at Dar Bajda was very pleasant and it was a shame that these small things marred our holiday.
Thanks for your review. First and foremost I am glad you think the house is lovely and that you had an enjoyable stay despite the issues you raise. Dar Bajda has been in my family for 40 years. We are proud of it, look after it and strive to keep it well equipped.
The parking: we know that there are sometimes problems parking directly outside and we tell this to guests who hire cars. We are trying to get planning to convert the garage but we aren’t there yet. Meanwhile the advice remains that if you park during the day you will invariably be able to park outside or virtually outside the house. If you return after 6 or 7pm then you should be able to park within a few minutes walk. 2 or 3 minutes if you turn right and park along that road. In the most extreme case, there is a large square by a modern church which always has parking and that is less than 4 minutes walk. If you return with luggage or shopping then most holiday makers stop in the road or temporarily park in front of the garage door directly opposite, where you can safely unload and then park the car. This is what we do routinely. If someone comes by while you are unloading they are accustomed to waiting. Malta is a very populated island and parking is a problem throughout the island.
Busy road: the house is situated on a quiet residential road. By Maltese Standards it is rural - until recently we had a donkey living in the house opposite but it bears no resemblance to rural places in England. There is a hustle and bustle to the island. For example the bread van drives along alerting customers by tooting its horn. Most holidaymakers see this as adding colour but I appreciate if you are having a lie in it might be annoying. And because it is so hot and dawn is generally earlier than in the UK people do start their day earlier.
Electricity: I am afraid this is made abundantly clear all over the website and all over the terms and conditions. The cost is charged to tenants at less than the cost to us. Malta is a small island that buys in its power. It is terribly expensive. We spend thousands and thousands of euros a year on electricity and water. It is by far our single biggest overhead. Our options are to not charge extra but increase the cost dramatically as when it is free some guests leave the aircon on all day. I am in no doubt that charging a subsidised rate is the fairest thing to do. It should be very obvious to anyone who reads the web description and the rental terms.
