Amazing view of citadel from the terrace

  • 4 of 5

Situated in a residential suburb of Victoria, not a hotel in sight and with wonderful views from the terrace. There is a fairly steep flight of stairs up to this very large apartment, it has a well equipped kitchen with large fridge freezer and washing machine. The pool and terrace are wonderful. There are things that need updating, towels/furnishings for example but, on the whole, very good value and a comfortable place to stay.

Spacious apartment, poor maintenance

  • 2 of 5

This is an apartment, not a house, with a flight of appr. 30 (rather steep) chairs leading to the entrance door. On the ground floor of the house, there is another holiday apartment with garden/pool. It takes about 3 min of walking to the local supermarket and Kercem’s 2 restaurants, and about 8 min to the local bakery. The center of Victoria can be reached within 15 min of walking.

The good: The apartment is very spacious, and due to the way the house is constructed, with a sort of atrium in the middle, it was not too hot even on hot summer days. The roof terrace offers a beautiful view, and the pool was great.

The bad: The apartment would need some more careful cleaning and maintenance. The first two towels we used were dirty, and there were stains on the bed sheets. There were no spare towels or bed sheets available. The carpet in the living room was so dirty that we rolled it back on the first day. During the very first hours upon arrival, the soles of our feet turned black when walking barefoot. While the advertisement says “free weekly maid service”, there was no such service during our 10 days of stay.

Some of the kitchen equipment such as coffee maker was dirty and dusty. The percolator was missing the handle. Cutlery and dishes were sticky, and the cupboards had a musty smell. There wer no spare garbage bags.

The roof terrace gets very sunny and hot. The parasol was very unstable, so we couldn’t use it half of the time we were there. Both the parasol and the deck chairs, some of which were already ripped, should be replaced. The times when the manager dropped by to add chlorine to the pool were not announced beforehand, which was annoying (the pool can’t be used for several hours after that).

Sleeping was compromised. The “double beds” are only 115 cm wide. Since the apartment downstairs was rented out to other guests, there could be quite a lot of noise coming from the garden/pool, both late at night and early in the morning. In the bedroom adjoining the atrium, every little sound – including the snoring from the guests downstairs – could be heard.

There is a TV and a DVD player. The latter wasn’t connected though, and there were not enough outlets nearby to use the DVD player (unless one unplugged the Internet router, which we didn’t dare to). The TV channel package missed major channels like Eurosport (the only channel to cover the UEFA cup).

So all in all, good location, but poor maintenance and too much noise.

Owner's Response: The owner's friendly approach to our genuine guests wouldn't have deterred anyone from making a complaint if it were real during one's stay . The fact that we called twice at the guests to treat the pool with chlorine in the evening when bathers should have stopped using it is nothing against common practice to keep the hygiene .

Loads of stairs which will not suit everyone. Perfect relaxation for us.

  • 4 of 5

Owner very obliging - we needed a weekend away with our 2 dogs. Property is spotless and has everything you would need. I read comments about the mattresses - and yes - i'm afraid the bed is not comfortable - the mattress does need changed - we would use this owner again.

Peace & Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this apartment justice. It is spacious, light and beautiful.

The rooftop terrace and pool are absolutely fantastic, we spent most afternoons up there having spent our mornings sight seeing. Although the pool is not heated and was quite chilly it was so very refreshing after the heat of walking around the island.

Maria is very helpful and accommodating, she showed us around 2 of the other properties and they were stunning.

I would highly recommend this property.

Great apartment, lovely roof top pool!

  • 5 of 5

This is an apartment but has the space and feel of a villa (once you have climbed the stairs!) We rented both this and the villa opposite from Maria and couldn't have been happier, Maria was very helpful. The accommodation was very clean, the rooms were all a good size with their own bathrooms, a well appointed kitchen and the roof top pool area was fantastic! It was spacious, light and airy. We have rented many places in Gozo and this had to be one of our favorites and value for money.
