We fell in love with Gozo many years ago, and have been returning ever since to holiday. When the opportunity came to purchase a stone villa so close to the centre of our favourite village, Xaghra, we couldn't turn it down. Ta Marlin has been superbly restored to retain all it's original features including tiled floors throughout, stone arches, wooden beams and original staircase and balcony. But it also has every modern amenity with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, and en-suite to both main bedrooms and a third beautifully decorated children's bedroom. We have also installed a technology centre including tv/dvd, cable and free, unlimited internet access. We know you will enjoy staying in Ta Marlin, with it's great location close to Xaghra village centre, so we invite you to sit back and soak up the lovely atmosphere and tranquility of Gozo. Perhaps you could enjoy a glass of locally produced Gozitan wine, your only decision whether to sit by the pool, relax on the terrace or enjoy the heritage of Ta Marlin Villa itself.

About Linda Jones
We have been together over 20 years now and 10 years ago were lucky enough to have our daughter Lucy. We have always enjoyed travelling, and we realised that as parents, the best quality self catering accommodation was for us better than a stay in a hotel. Over the years we have found the best and worst experiences of staying in owners properties and we have drawn on all this history to ensure everyone who stays with us has the best holiday possible.
Linda Jones purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Linda Jones chose Xagħra
We love Gozo with it's laid back feel and charm, and of course its wonderful Mediterranean climate. In particular we chose Ta Marlin because of it's fabulous location just a short walk from Xaghra village centre with its lovely restaurants. Over the past 10 years we have stayed in most of the Island's villages and Xaghra was always our favourite, we were delighted when we recently had the opportunity to purchase the right property in such a great location. There are many attractions very close to Ta Marlin, which are all walkable, and include Ggantija Temples, Ta Kola Windmill, Pomzkizillious Museum and Xerri's Grotto as well as a superb beach at Ramla Bay.
What makes this Villa unique
Ta Marlin is a beautifully restored House of Character which retains all of it's original features. We love the original tiled floors, the majestic staircase, the Maltese Balcony, the arches and the beams. The south facing pool is just perfect on a hot day, and we end a perfect summers evening with a chilled glass of wine on the terrace.

Lovely property and helpful owners
A bit cold for a winter break but would be wonderful in Summer. Maybe a rug or two would help make it feel warmer.
Great location, great villa.
A charming villa, full of character in a great location with plenty of space. Welcome pack on arrival was a lovely gesture especially as we arrived late and lovely welcome from Jeanette and Lawrence to help us settle in.
Little supermarket which was well stocked nearby and a wonderful bakers too. Short walk into the square for a really good choice of restaurants but everything in easy reach, so a really great base for visiting this magical island. Thankyou Linda.
The house was as beautiful as the description, the locals charming and the food good. Lovely pool for a cooling dip and nice terrace for alfresco dining. Absolutely perfect
Not enough space to say how fab it was!!!!
Awesome villa, we love Gozo do much! Plenty to see and do, restaurants in village are fab too. Pool great, bbq great, can’t recommend highly enough. 3rd year going - please let me know availability for same week in June next year C
Just what we hoped for-quiet but good town and beaches
Larger than expected. Light and air and a real feeling of connecting with Gozos past. Also comfortable and the pool was large enough for a proper swim
Loved our stay at Ta Marlin. Great central base to explore Gozo. Very spacious for the two of us. All our needs were catered for even down to the shopping items left for us when we arrived including a bottle of wine. Large rooms with high ceilings and beams. Loads of period features including patterned floor tiles in each room. Loads of wardrobe space. Plenty of towels provided also. The property is easy walking distance to the town square where we found some nice restaurants and bars. A couple of mini supermarket shops are within walking distance also. Space on the nearby streets for parking which didn't cause a problem. Wifi provided. Nice to have your own pool (shame the weather was a tad cool for swimming in March - maybe we'll use it more next time).
Ggantja Temples are a must see as they are the oldest man made structures in the World, older than the Pyramids. Ta Kola Windmill is a restored windmill now a museum. Xaghra church wonderful baroque village church. Xaghra village square has excellent restaurants, bars and shops.
Rates include meet and greet by our lovely local agent, linen and complimentary welcome pack
