About Me

⚠️⚠️ ATTN Surfers, I only host:
✅ Surfers over 25 with host references (also applies to +1s you're coming with)
✅ Easygoing Surfers who have no problems with🐱, and an interest knowing their host while being independent if needed
✅ Relatively last minute (up to max two weeks before)
✅ Preferably During the week... Rarely in weekends
✅ Key is not provided

I will do my best to get to know you and spend time with you so I only host when I have enough time to properly host. When sending requests no need for long personalized requests although I do appreciate if you mention why you want to stay at mine.

Now on to me:


100% Maltese guy here, so can recommend all the best that's local. I'm a lecturer and environmental activist who loves climbing, making music sometimes, design small games, cooking and deep conversations about life with a good dose of unhinged humour 😎 When out I'm into hiking, climbing, diving, kayaking and exploring places, people and new experiences.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done


Walked around Komodo Dragons on Komodo Islands, Indonesia

Dined with locals next to a huge bonfire during Easter in a small remote village in Southern Germany

Walked inside a waterfall cave behind Seljalandfoss in Iceland

Kayaked and dove around the beautiful caves in Comino, Malta.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to make plant milk, composting, Deejaying, basic Guitar, electronic music production, basic gardening tips and Maltese!

I'd love to learn any instrument, and jam with someone great at guitar. Learn about future cities, public access and mobility, permaculture & place making.

I can share traditional Maltese recipes as well as a plate on the table if I'm cooking.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A super central yet quiet location in a picturesque part of the island.

A double bed in one of two private rooms :) Sheets, pillows included.

A tidy room and clean bathroom when you're there. As for the rest of the place...don't expect hotel tidy please. My time and expectation for cleanliness/tidiness is limited compared to others😅
