“Perfect Family Vaction Villa”

Stayed here in August '12 and can not say enough about how special this property and our vacation here was. Our trip was a last-minute decision and I was a bit nervous about booking a villa online (through TripAdvisor) but I could not have planned it any better. The owner Anton was wonderful, not only handling the villa rental but also helping us rent a car and arrange taxi and ferry to and from St. Julien.

Behind the villas unassuming facade lies a beautiful villa and well equipped villa. The outdoor area is spectacular with a great bbq area, plenty of sunbeds, lots of shade. We spent most of our time outdoors. It was very serene and we enjoyed just lounging to the sounds of goats bleating and birds chirping. The pool was very clean and Anton stopped by during our stay to make sure the water levels were ok. The villa was also very clean and very well equipped - we even had a lovely selection of food waiting for us when we arrived. And my kids and husband were quite happy with the great selection of channels on the TV. The bedrooms had air conditioning thankfully since it was incredibly hot during our stay. AC in the living areas would have been nice, but several fans were provided so it wasn't too bad. And oddly enough, with the exception of a rare wasp here and there, there were no bugs at all so we were able to leave both the front and back doors open at night to catch a breeze. The AC in one of the bedrooms did not work and Anton immediately sent over a repair man to rectify the problem. The only minor complaint would be the beds (very, very hard) and linens (kind of threadbare and skimpy, not in keeping with the super-luxurious vibe of the villa). Also no beach towels were provided so we ended up utilizing a lot of suitcase space bring those with us from NY.

The villa's location is also excellent. It's right around the corner from the scenic town square which is the activity center of town. There is a farmers market during the day and great restaurants line the square providing lots of dining options. Like many others, we worked our way around the square. There is a nice cafe for morning coffee and pastries and a nicely stocked market for staples. All within a few minutes walk from the villa.

We rented a car through Anton and visited differnt beaches during the day. Our favorite was Xlendi. Avoid the main sandy beach (although head here for lunch) and rent a sunbed on the cliffs along the fjord. There is a diving/jumping platform that the kids loved. A few styrofoam noodles worked out great, allowing us to float in the water for ages. We also drove to Malsoform for dinner a few times where there is a bustling but sedate nightlife. On the recommendation of the owner of the coffee shop, we also went into Victoria for a festival which was alot of fun for the kids with horse races and an agricultural fair. The driving is easy on Gozo, although there are often few signs and some are tacked on buildings. However, because of so few roads, it's difficult to get lost and you eventually wind up where you need to be. We also took a boat cruise around the island which was very enjoyable.

This villa was one of the nicest we'ver ever stayed in and a large part of our satisfaction with the property was Anton's dilligence. He really did ensure that every need was met and every crisis quickly resolved. And he was very patient and thorough in answering the volley of emails we sent off prior to booking. We would definetely return to this villa or any other of Anton's properties.
