Stylish, contemporary well appointed farmhouse.

  • 5 of 5

A group of four spent a brilliant week in this wonderful house. Located near Victoria, all the sites of Gozo are a short drive away.

Great communication with the owner, we were shown around the property, and everything was explained in detail on our arrival.

Three spacious bedrooms, all with ensuite facilities. Comfortable inside seating area, although most of our visit was spent on the terrace surrounding the pool. With a well appointed kitchen, and the added bonus of a barbecue area, you have the choice on how to end your perfect day on Gozo. I cannot recommend this house and island enough!

Smashing holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time on Gozo, what a lovely island! The house was perfect for all our needs. We had a few teething problems at first but these where sorted out straight away. I would definitely recommend this house to others.

Kercem is a very good central location for seeing all the island, nowhere is very far! There are many wonderful restaurants providing a large selection of international foods, great value for money too. We particularly liked 'It Tokk' in Victoria and Xlendi bay had a good choice of cafes and bars.

The weather was good for this time of year, sunny and warm in the day but very chilly at night. We would definitely return to the island and to Dar Zebbug, thank you for a smashing holiday.

Excellent accommodation on Gozo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have recently enjoyed a wonderful 2 week holiday on Gozo staying in this beautiful house. This was our 7th holiday on Gozo and Dar Zebbuga is by far the best house/villa we have stayed in.

The interior is spacious, homely, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It is very well equipped with everything you would require during your holiday.

The pool area is wonderful with an excellent size (south facing) pool, patio area, BBQ and sun loungers.

If you are considering Gozo for your holiday destination and want 5☆ accommodation then look no further than this beautiful property.

Rowena and Alex are both very friendly and helpful.

We are already looking at dates to return next year.

Great place to stay on Gozo

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully converted farmhouse providing spacious and comfortable accommodation in a great location. The pool is lovely (with regular visits from a lovely red dragonfly during our stay), and on very hot afternoons you have the option to retreat to the cool tv 'cave' room.

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

From the initial contact with Rowena, everything ran smoothly.

From extending the holiday to the greeting we received it was brilliant.

The villa was everything we hoped for, for a family holiday of 6 adults.

It is spacious, modern and airy and the TV room was certainly a hit.

Although this was our second visit to Gozo we still discovered more of the island and i couldn't recommend it more as a place to tick off the list.

Along with the villa i have been recommending it to anyone that will listen!

Thank you Rowena for letting us stay in your home and we certainly hope to be back soon

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is outstanding - clean, modern and spacious. Really good facilities which we put to good use such as a washing machine and dishwasher. The bedrooms are an excellent size and each has an en suite bedroom. It is well worth having the air conditioning.

I didn't think we would make use of the tv room but it was a welcome retreat from the sun on a couple of afternoons.

The villa is in a quiet location (other than the odd firework!). Kercem is a fantastic location and the people in Gozo are very friendly. We were lucky enough to be staying at the villa during the Kercem 'festa' which was good fun. There were fireworks, food stalls and a brass band during the evening.

Like many villas in Gozo, it isn't ideal for very small children. The stairs are stone and the pool is deep but we managed to escape without any injuries! You just need to be extra vigilant.

Rowena and Alex were very helpful leading up to and during our holiday. They both answered any questions we had very quickly.

We had a fantastic holiday at this villa and would recommend. We will certainly be returning if we have an opportunity.

The nearest beaches to the house are the picturesque beach village of Xlendi bustling with bars and restaurants and the Inland Sea featuring the Azure window. Both a 10 minute drive. The two sandy beaches Ramla and San Blas are a 15 minute drive.


There are no direct flights to Gozo. Air Malta, B.A, Ryan Air and Easy Jet fly to Luqa - Malta International airport. We would recommend hiring a car from the airport, we can advise car hire companies. Make the 40 minute drive, which is well signposted, to Cirkewwa ferry port where the ferries cross to Mgarr, Gozo. The ferry timetable can be viewed in Alternatively, we can arrange taxi transfers from the airport to the ferry port and advise car hire companies in Gozo.


Victoria 1 km / 5 mins drive

Xlendi Bay 2 km / 10 mins

Inland Sea, Dwejra 2 km / 10 mins

Ramla beach 7 km / 15 mins

Mgarr Harbour (ferry port) 10 km / 20 mins
