About the property

Absolutely Breathtaking Ocean Views - Huge Front Balcony & Swimming Pool

If you like ocean views then this is the place for you, the unobstructed panorama from the apartment is one of the best in Gozo! It has a huge private front terrace and a long bath just perfect for a romantic couple!

Situated above the Grand Hotel in Mgarr Gozo, this new apartment has breathtaking ocean views over the lovely blue Mediterranean, Comino and Malta. Our penthouse is a perfect retreat for couples to relax and recharge. It's only 5 minutes walk to the harbour, pubs, shops and cafes. You can explore the whole of Malta and Gozo or simply laze and watch the ferries/yachts cross the sparkling blue ocean.

Apartment Details

The south facing penthouse is on the top (5th) floor of a newly built gated complex. It has been cleverly designed to match the traditional Maltese architecture with warm honey coloured limestone walls and brightly coloured balconies. It has a swimming pool, sunbathing area and elevator.

The lounge and front terrace overlooks the harbour, ocean, Comino and Malta in a wonderful sweeping panorama. The large private terrace has a parasol, outdoor chairs, tables and sun-beds. The lounge opens onto the terrace through large sliding glass doors and makes a fabulous private indoor/outdoor area and without anyone looking in. The living area has curtains, a three seater couch and Ottoman, a small LED TV with satellite box - free to air European channels with a computer table and free WIFI service. The dining area has table that seats 2/4 with two chairs, two stools and a fan.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped with induction hob, microwave with grill, oven, fridge/freezer, automatic washing machine, kettle, сafetière, toaster and cooking utensils etc.

The large bathroom has a full bath - long bath and adjustable shower and complimentary toiletries

The romantic bedroom has air-condition unit, a King Size orthopaedic bed (1.6m x 2m), curtains, chest of drawers, bedside table and walk-in wardrobe. The second huge terrace leads off the bedroom and overlooks the swimming pool. The two terraces mean that there is always a place to sit/dine in the sun or in the shade at any time of the day!

Upon booking confirmation, we will email detailed instructions and map with directions from Malta airport to Gozo Island across the Gozo Channel. We will pick you up ourselves upon arrival at the Mgarr Ferry terminal to our Romantic Sea View Penthouse - free of charge.

Local Area

All amenities are close by, public buses are just a few minutes walk away, and can be a good way of exploring the island. If you like walking, then Gozo has some excellent country walks. It's ideal place to be for activities like diving, swimming and snorkelling or just chilling out!

Ghajnsielem (Salem's spring) is 10 minutes walk and is a typical Gozitan village with the church, the square and the shops, pubs and cafes surrounding it. The harbour at Mgarr 10 minutes walk the other way, is a colourful working port with brightly painted fishing boats, ferries and a marina, the area also houses some of the best pubs and restaurants on the island. You can catch a boat to Comino, the ferry to Malta or walk along the coast either side of the harbour where you will find secluded swimming spots with crystal clear water.

During our first year in our gorgeous apartment, our first guests have just left, their comments as follows;-

"We had a great time, the apartment was lovely, with amazing sea views. Sitting on the balcony in the sun was heavenly, with regular chimes from the churches nearby. We visited in early April and the weather was sunny with wind, and cooler in the evenings, with one really good thunder storm. The apartment had everything we needed, and the bus service around the island was really good. Gozo is absolutely beautiful with breathtaking churches" L+A couple from the UK

We will respond to your enquiry as soon as we receive it, but please allow up to 12 hours in the event your enquiry arrives while we are both travelling overseas.

Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

Deserves 5 stars for the view alone but this property ticks all the boxes too. It is spotless, modern yet comfortable & provides all the essentials & is more spacious than it looks. It's an uphill walk from the harbour, supermarket & restaurants but we are in our 60s & had no trouble with it. Perhaps a good antidote to lazing on the balcony with a glass of wine. Didn't use the pool as we are not swimmers but it looked clean & is in the sun most of the time. Two supermarkets within walking distance. Top one has fresh meats & better selection of most goods. Bottom has best wine selection. Can recommend local Pinot Grigio.About 20 minute walk to fresh fish shop or short bus ride.

Kerry & Nora were brilliant hosts. Picked us up & dropped us back at he harbour, gave us a short tour to familiarise us with the area & provided us with a welcome pack of bread, cheese, ham, beer, wine, tea, coffee & strawberries plus a supply of bottled water which we had requested. Also let us have late checkout as they had no guests for a few days. This was all above what we would have expected from holiday let.

We used local buses to tour Gozo. Bus stop to Victoria is a few minutes away & can get anywhere from there. Another stop at the end of the road for Marsalforn & east of the island. Recommend Xlendi, a pretty fishing village, walks either direction from Mgarr harbour, not for the faint hearted but worth the effort, Azure Window, interesting as well as beautiful plus Blue Lagoon on Comino, stunning but arrive & leave early to avoid the hoards.

First saw this apartment on other websites & was a little wary of 100% positive reviews but can't think of any negatives. Booked with Homeway as used this site before. If you like a 'lively' holiday don't choose Gozo but there are enough restaurants & bars to cater for a sociable time. If you like to combine exploration with lazing around & wining & dining Gozo & this apartment is for you.
