Peaceful harbor on the island of Gozo!
Good access, close to the local bus stop. It is located in a quiet location, 5-10 minutes walk to the village center. Suitable place for beautiful walks!
Apartment very clean, equipped with everything you need. Spacious and comfortable living room with a soft sofa, bar counter and a comfortable kitchen corner. Enough space for children to play in. Maybe missing a small table in the living room where the child could build Lego or draw, but it all could have been solved by store food boxes :) Very good heater in the evenings!
Beautiful small balcony, where to drink a cup of tea and enjoy the morning sun.
The bedroom with large soft bed with a number of cool pillows and soft blankets. (The bed probably is not suitable for particularly long people :))
Bathroom comfortable and equipped with a heater.
Pool just looked at, but not swam, it was already winter season.
A special atmosphere directly at Christmas time, because out summer, but at every home Christmas decorations and each center of the village Christmas tree. Beautifully and tenderly!
We are very happy with this choice and owners of apartment are very responsive and friendly! Thanks you very much!

“Beautifully presented, clean, well equpped modern flat in quiet historic Gharb”
Reviewed January 23, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This flat is very well equipped, with all mod cons and an extremely comfortable bed, with high grade linen. It was very clean, easy to find, and in an appartment block with permanent residents, who were very hospitable. It is on a quiet road down to Ta Pinu, easy to go straight out into the countryside for beautiful walks, and a short stroll into Gharb centre which has a very good small supermarket, restaurant ( Gharb Rangers , Il Konvent and Salvinas), The information booklet was clearly written with instructions for the flat and all the appliances, as well as a good selection of walking books and advice for dining and sight seeing. Help was at hand with any queries, with prompt responses. The living room area is spacious, leading out onto a small balcony that looks onto the road. The bedroom had high grade furniture and the bathroom was of a good size. Staying in January meant that the nights were cooler, but the heating worked well, and the flat was warm and cosey. There were cds to watch and books to read, a great deal of thought has gone into making your stay comfortsble.The bathroom was a good size, ( sadly with a full size bath with shower overhead.. The pool area looked inviting, with lovely views to the countryside,but sadly I was staying during the winter, so a bit cold!Very good value for money, would definitely stay again,.

“Gharb, one of Gozo's best kept secrets”
Reviewed December 1, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed at Scenic Escapes for the second year running, from 13 to 23 November.
We were away during the Uk hurricanes enjoying temperatures over 20 in daytime and not lower than 17 at night! The apartment is perfect for couples, a real home from home. It's location at the edge of Gharb village near to Ta Pinu is easy to find and close to some beautiful walking from outside your door. The village itself is a living community and there are still restaurants and bars open where you can share hospitality with the local people. If you fancy 5 star luxury at the Kempinski you can have happy hour cocktails or coffee and cake.
The local Rangers bar is owned and run by guys from the local football team who made us very welcome, and serve good local food. The sun shone on our balcony from first thing in the morning till 4 in the afternoon. It was quite a shock returning home to the cold, but there is always next year to look forward to in Autumn in Gozo!

“Very lovely apartment for two!”
Reviewed June 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We enjoyed our stay at Elaine's apartment very much! From the beginning till the end Elaine was really supportive and very well organized! It was quiet easy to book from abroad. The apartment has nearly everything you need during your holidays - except a coffee machine ;-) We agree with other guests concerning the shower. It's not that easy to get hot water and the pressure isn't high enough to have an enjoyable shower. But in general the apartment is lovely and the rooms are spacious. The view from the pool behind the house is amazing! The small village Gharb gives you an authentic insight about the Gozo lifestyle - kind people, maltese culture, beautiful landscape. If you would like to relax in a genuine atmosphere we highly recommend Elaine's apartment in Gharb!

Thank you very much Krystina. We have now changed the hose and shower head and the pressure is improved, so hopefully this problem is now sorted. The cleaner reported that the hot water switch within the apartment had actually been switched off during your stay, which explains why you felt there was no hot water.

“A perfect appartment in a restful setting”
Reviewed May 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This apartment was exactly what myself and my husband were looking for. It was comfortable and well equipped for all we needed. It is one of those rare occasions that the rooms felt more spacious than the photos portray! The back yard area was beautiful with an amazing view. It was still a little too cold in the swimming pool to comfortably use this.
The apartment was in a quiet village location though there was enough nearby (small food shops, restaurants and bus stops) for us to get by without a car. There was a wealth of maps and tourist leaflets in a cupboard which gave inspiration for the holiday activities. In particular we would suggest the planned Gozo walks.
Elaine was very helpful in the booking process and arranged our airport transfers which made getting there and back a stress free and straight forward process.
The only minor problem (as with previous reviews) was that the shower head didn't stay up very easily, though I have been told that this has been fixed since we stayed.
We would recommend this apartment without hesitation.

“Very Comfortable apartment in excellent location”
Reviewed March 25, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We found this apartment very comfortable and excellent value for money. The only slight negative was the shower which had a loose head and low water pressure, but other than that, the apartment and building actually exceed our expectations. We stayed in February so did not use the pool but the deck area is very attractive and the view to the sea was lovely. It was a little cool during our stay but the apartment has excellent heating and was a cozy place to return to. As advertised, it is well stocked with guide books and we enjoyed some fantastic walks along the cliff and through the countryside. We arrived by bus and used the bus throughout our stay and had no problems. The buses are only once an hour but Gozo is very small and there is plenty of time in a day to travel anywhere. The bus stop is only a few minutes walk away and easy to plan around. We ate out about half the time and found the shop on the village square very well stocked and the owners friendly. Gharb is an attractive little village very close to the famous Azure Window, Ta'Pinu and Gordon Lighthouse among other attractions accessible with a short walk. Overall, an excellent stay and we would highly recommend it. We hope to return some day.
