Gozo Luxury Apartment
Review Submitted: 18 July 2009
Date of Stay: May 2009
Outstanding finishing touches make this apartment special. The owners' style and design features set this apart from usual holiday homes. Everything is provided, even large mugs and big wine glasses! PS2 and laptop with internet connection catered for the trickiest of holidaymaker, the late-teens son, though he too was cativated by the charm of Gozo. The Welcome Pack of groceries, wine and water was indeed welcome as we'd arrived early Sunday evening and didn't fancy a restaurant meal. Very well situated on the edge of a typical Gozo village, in an area of modern properties,some 'still under contrstruction' though no building seemed to be going on while we were there. Both teenagers in the party loved the pool, not even having to share it with folk from the other apts in the block as no-one else seemed to be in during our week. We were glad to have a hire car, as the buses weren't prolific, so the many beautiful places to visit were easier to reach. I doubt we'd have experienced the spectacular sunset at Azure Window if we'd not had the freedom to go when we did. Ta'Maria is close enough to walk to this magnificent area of coastline, if you're fit and able.
The property was very clean and comfortable, as were the patio and pool areas. Double screening on all the windows and the patio doors kept away annoying insects. (Thanks - it really makes a difference not being a mosi's banquet.) The inner courtyard was rather compact for sitting, but ideal for drying towels or washing. A couple of plumbing problems, reported by last guest, were a minor inconvenience, but took nothing away from the holiday, because there were 2 other toilets and showers and we did not want to waste any of our week complaining! Friends were staying in a nearby 'farmhouse' - their night escapades with cockroaches and the intermittent power and water they experienced reminded us of what luxury this apartment really offers! Excellent value for money, as we had to take a school holiday week and really appreciate the owners' fair pricing system not exploiting this. Would love to go back and can highly recommend the apartment for all ages. Thanks to Berenice for her friendly correspondence and help with my booking, and Celine at the car rental firm that Berenice recommeded - airport pick-up and car rental helped make this a perfect holiday.
