Hi Brittany, thanks for taking the time to leave a review for us. I am glad to hear that the penthouse and it's location were up to your satisfaction. With regards to the cockroaches, unfortunately it is a common problem during the summer months and not only in Malta. A simple (Hidden by Airbnb) search will confirm this. This is why we always advise our guests to leave all windows and terrace doors closed. Unfortunately these hated creatures can still find their way into any property and unfortunately this is beyond our control. I don't think we will manage to spray the entire neighbourhood so the best way to avoid cockroaches is to close all windows and doors. Thanks for being our guest!
