Overview

About the property

High quality apartment with terrace overlooking crystal clear water

Our waterfront apartment is on high ground enjoying fantastic views over the clear water of Xlendi Bay, a fishing village with a small sandy beach. You can have breakfast on the terrace, then a swim in the bay before a short walk in the countryside along the nearby panoramic cliffs and winding valleys. Relax in the afternoon with a good read and in the evening you can enjoy a romantic meal sipping wine on the terrace while observing the colourful fishing boats coming and going. The apartment is finished to very high standards with solid pine furniture. The accommodation includes a good-sized living area leading onto the terrace, two bedrooms, a kitchen and bathroom. The apartment is on the fourth floor and serviced by a lift. There are great archaeological sites nearby and the old fortified city of Rabat is only 10 minutes away by bus. Visit the Azure Window at Dwejra and the red sandy beach of Ramla Bay. The apartment is in a quiet area but very close to popular restaurants.

Airport Transfer: We can arrange for your transfer directly from the airport to the apartment by taxi at an extra charge.

We can also speak and write in Italian

More than a holiday flat

  • 5 of 5

Seeing the picture of Xlendi bay your first thought might be that the sea can't really be that clear and blue and more. Next you might think this is just a picture of Xlendi from some luxury hotel penthouse. But no; not only does it look like that but immediately you open the front door you get the view through a full-width picture window and realise its a wonderful home to come back to after a day roaming around Gozo. And there is room on the balcony to eat. Xlendi seems to me to be the best place to stay on Gozo and this must be the best place to live in Xlendi. My partner spent time in Xlendi sixty years ago and says it hasn't changed nearly as much as most places. It is only a small town though and there was no grocery shop (maybe there is in high season). We heard that a mobile shop visits once a day but we were never around to see it. There are very reliable buses to Victoria and its supermarkets. Cooking facilities are good (electric) and the flat is laid out along a longish corridor so there is plenty of privacy. For six people the single bathroom/WC might make it seem more crowded but for the two of us it was the height of luxury. Not having been to Malta before I was quite surprised at how courteous the people are. Visitors from former colonial powers often feel rather embarrassed but in Malta they don't let you feel that way. I think they all realise how lucky they are to inhabit these islands and to have such beautiful houses (even the modern ones) made of local stone. Perfect weather for walking when we were there in early May and we could swim without wet suits. One of our best holidays ever and certainly the best value for money.

Lovely. Well equipped. Loved aircon. TV channels not really good.

  • 4 of 5

Xlendi vibrant place. loads of places to eat and grab a cold beer or 2 in sunshine on the waters edge. Xlendi offers more than enough choices for you to remain there all week. Boat hire (Xlendi watersports) fantastic with speed boat hire for day through to canoe hire for 1 hour! Sunsets are deamy along cliff! Does need more choice of grocers and ongoing building works is noisy and unsightly.

Fabulous location in the best village in Gozo

  • 5 of 5

We are so pleased we booked this apartment, it really made our holiday. Xlendi is one of the best villages in Gozo, with a lovely bay to swim / snorkel in and lots of amazing restaurants to eat (make sure you book at weekends). Check TripAdvisor for the best places to eat.

The location of the apartment is perfect, a short walk to the main part of the village (with restaurants, bus stop and a mini mart) but far enough away to avoid the noise of people eating/drinking late. Also you only have to cross the road and you can walk down a few steps and be able to swim in the beautiful clear water.

It gets busier at weekends, to avoid these busy periods then either swim in the morning or evening. There is also a fixed diving platform and lifeguards on duty until 6pm.

The apartment is on the 4th floor, with a fantastic view from the balcony. There is a small lift, but only from the 1st floor, so be aware if you find stairs a problem, but we managed fine, preferring to walk up all 4 flights.

The facilities in the apartment were all good, and we found some emergency supplies when we arrived (water, milk, bread, etc.) which were gratefully received after a long journey from Malta's airport. The only downside was the description didn't mention paying for the air conditioning, so we used it only on limited occasions as we didn't always have coins and the ceiling fans kept us cool enough.

Communications with the owners was very good, answering any questions we had and even installing a key lock to help us when we arrived.

We would definitely stay here again when we come back to Gozo, we visited a lot of the island over the 6 days we stayed and didn't see anywhere as nice on our trips.

Owner's Response: We are very glad our guests enjoyed their holiday in our apartment and look forward to their next visit. The airconditioners are coin-operated because some guests tend to leave them on even after their departure if they are free of charge. However, the rate are based on official energy costs charged by the local utility company. The fact that they are coin operated was mentioned on the website under 'Heating' but we have now included further reference to this in the general comments.

Beautiful sea view- one of Xlendis best placed apartments

  • 4 of 5

Gozo is amazing, and Xlendi appears as on of the best places to stay. Rent a car if you are a good driver and explore!

The apartment has a lovely view from the balcony, and very good situated: great panoramic view, not in the middle of the restaurant noise. Short way to take a swim from the pier (better than the beach we thought). The apartment has a modest standard, but everything that you need for a stay. We really enjoyed our stay!

amazing holiday, 3rd time to Gozo, last visit 5 years ago, was hoping nothing had changed too much, happy to say it's the same, Xlendi in my opinion is the best place to stay, the views from apartment are amazing, spent a lot of time on the balcony, apartment clean had everything we needed, sofa and chair a little tired looking but served their purpose. the internet was fab, lift upto 4th floor. We parked at the top of the hill just further on than the bus stop and small car park, had no issues finding a space. Many restaurants to choose from, we really liked Sofia Bar & Restaurant (Balkan cuisine) was a nice change and lovely food. Also tried the Indian, Sapana after i'd the reviews on tripadvisor, again this was worth a visit. Best beach by far is San Blas, and Mgarr ix xini, and Dahlet qorrot lovely too. it's a shame the blue window has gone but the area there is still lovely with the inland sea, mini boat trip a must only 4 euros for 20 mins, fungus rock and the look out tower could go on forever, so much to do for such a tiny island, we will be back. Thank you Laura & Alfred x

Lovely position, great views, quite spacious but could do with a few up-grades

  • 4 of 5

The position of this flat is great and it had lovely views of the Xlendi Bay, Mountains directly opposite, and the Village. Buses were frequest to Victoria, and there were some spectacular walks closeby. Eating out was easy as there were several good restaurants within a 5 min stroll, also a tiny somewhat disorganised provisions shop, where you could buy the basics. The flat has spacious rooms and plently of hot water, it was very clean and quiet. However, the negatives were there was no heater supplied in the lounge/kitchen/dining area and it was quite chilly, especially in the evenings [ March ]. There was no radio or CD player, which would have been nice. Weve never stayed anywhere before where you had a 'coin in the slot' meter for air conditioning - luckily we didnt need to use it ! Overall we had a nice time and loved Gozo.

Owner's Response: We are glad that our guests enjoyed their stay in our apartment, giving it such high ratings, and we welcome the useful suggestions made. Unfortunately, our guests did not realise that the cable TV also had a menu of over 100 music radio stations which they could have listened to. We will now put an appropriate note for future guests about this. As for the heating, this was available from the air conditioning units by simply turning them on to heating mode. It is true that these are coin operated but the cost is even less than the local utility tariffs. Also we opted for this last year to discourage guests leaving the units on when they are not in or even leaving them on when they leave to return home, resulting in unnecessary waste of energy. In fact this is the first time that we had this comment.

Xlendi Bay is an old fishing village only 10 minutes away from the Capital city of Gozo, Victoria. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside along valleys and hills on the one hand and impressive cliffs over the clear blue Mediterranean sea on the other. The walks are truly enjoyable for nature lovers who can observe a wild variety of fauna and bird life while savouring the quiet and peaceful surroundings of Gozo's pristine valleys. At the capital you can visit the old Citadel dating back to the times of the Knights in the 16th century. On the outskirts there are the impressive archaeological Ggantija temple dating back around 5,000 years and still standing. You can also visit the Azure Window in Dwejra bay and take a boat ride to see the beautiful orange coral in crystal clear sea.

Other Activities: Xlendi is a very popular diving spot both for beginners and advanced divers
