About The Owner

I am half Maltese and I have been visiting the Islands since birth and see it as my second home. I currently live and work in Dubai and visit Gozo as often as possible. I was born in the UK. I have a sister and brother both residing in the UK. My mother is Maltese and is an artist. My father is retired. My parents live on Malta and also own a property on Gozo. I have a little boy who adores Gozo and loves to visit his Nanna. Summer is a special time with our family on Malta and Gozo.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Island of Gozo

I always wanted a property on Gozo and had just one week in which to find one! I lost count of how many I saw. This was the last one and it was perfect. Great size, all the characteristics of a Malese home with all the mod cons. A large pool area which is private and in a great location. I just love Xaghra, its has all you need and makes the perfect hub to explore Gozo.

What makes this house unique

The Villa has all the characteristics of the old Maltese homes I remembered as a child. Its in a very quiet location has plenty of space and it just the perfect retreat from the busy life I lead. Xaghra is a delightful village, the square is a short walk from the property. I just love enjoying a glass of Gellewza over lunch with friends in one of the many restaurants in the square. Then returning to the villa for a swim!

Misleading description

  • 2 of 5

The key feature we search for when booking family accommodation during August in the Mediterranean is air conditioning. This property was advertised as having air conditioning, which it does, but at an additional and expensive cost using electricity cards which seem to be available only via the owner's maid. On arriving in the middle of a heatwave, this piece of information would have been most useful ahead of arriving, better still, ahead of making the booking in the first place. It's an expensive way and seemingly outdated way of buying electricity as we were unable to buy the cards over the counter.

This is undoubtedly a lovely property but certainly requires a bit more attention to detail to be fully enjoyed.

Owner's Response: The Ac system operates on a card system to encourage guests to switch the units off when not required. I appreciate that we all can forget to turn of units when on holiday. The problem that can arise is the units ice up and stop working properly, having to be left for several hours before normal operation can occur. It is stated on my listing that the AC's work on prepaid cards. However, I can see that it could be over looked when viewing information on the villa and am now informing all guests about the AC cards..I am also providing 3 complimentary cards for the AC's on arrival so no inconvenience is caused to the start of the holiday. Re: this review the guests received complimentary AC cards for any inconvenience caused on arrival.

Great villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa! It has character and style and a real homely feel. The terrace and the pool are are just great and everything worked just as it should.

The area is really great too. Safe and central to the whole island and everything that is available. Just nearby however is a fantastic square with some lovely restaurants and bars.

Stefan could not have been more helpful and was around to offer advice and help.

Top spot. Can't recommend enough!

!!Marvellous!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been taking villa holidays for 30 years and over that time have stayed in many countries. This is definitely one of the best villas we have had the pleasure of visiting. It is well laid out, spacious, immaculately furnished and superbly well equipped. The owner is a delightful chap - helpful and responsive. I suppose the fact that we have already booked for next year, and invited our grown up sons, their wives and children to join us, suggests that actions speak louder than words. Really looking forward to 2018!

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property. What looks small by the entrance door open into an amazing place. Really well furnished and maintained to a high standard. Pool area is great to just relax during the day and sit around enjoying a BBQ in the evenings. It's centrally located so getting everywhere is simple. The town square has good pubs and great food. If you book this you will not be disappointed. We will most certainly be going back.

Fantastic villa between the town centre and the be

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely early summer stay here, a deceptively big villa, well equipped and comfy. We just took the boy but with several lounge spaces and outdoor levels, including a nice pool, this place would be perfect for a bigger family or for three generations together.

Lovely property in relaxing location

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay at this property. It is an absolute TARDIS! Walking through the front door into a hallway that goes on and on certainly has the wow factor!!

We would definitely recommend the property to friends.

If we were to nit pick (and only because we loved the property so much) we would highlight the following:

Cushions on upstairs patio furniture could do with covers that could be washed at the end of a let as the rain has caused some of them to become stained (I appreciate that this is probably down to guests leaving them out in all weathers !! )

The pool furniture is lovely but could do with a sand back and re-stain (obviously due to the blazing sun !)

Inside there was some grouting in the kitchen by the sink, which needed touched up and a bit of a refresh to bring it up to the same high standards of the bathrooms.

All in all, a lovely holiday in a stunning property, and we will return!
