This is a good base for a Gozo holiday. Xaghra has got a few shops and restaurants around the very pleasant square and is a short drive from the beach at Ramla. It is a working small town with its own life rather than simply a tourist resort. However a car is useful - there are busses but they are infrequent and in the heat it is a bit too far to walk to other nearby towns or down to the coast (maybe 2-3 miles).
The house itself was ideal for 4 people and could sleep 6 fine. The kitchen and living area were spacious and cool and we had everything we wanted. 2 good bathrooms and everything worked well. The Jacuzzi and BBQ are in a very private little courtyard. However the pool (small but very clean and good for cooling down but not really for swimming) is on a roof terrace which is rather overlooked from the road due to the house being on the side of a small hill - not a big issue unless you are a shy sunbather! We liked having both pool and Jacuzzi and spent more time than I expected just relaxing around the house. The family who own it were very helpful - they even met us at the ferry port to take us to the house and show us around Xaghra when we first arrived. We would book it again if we go back to Gozo.
