I have not much to add to the other reviews. The pictures don't lie, this is really what you get. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms we had to share between the two of us. The bathroom at the master bedroom has a jacuzzi, but not a good shower facility, so we just used the bathroom next door to shower and you get very good water pressure and loads of hot water. A mini-market and the bus stop is at just 1 min walking distance and within 15 mins walk there is the main square with a few quite good restaurants. I would reccomend this place for couples, a family with 2-3 children (they need to have had at least a few swimming lessons, there is no fence around the pool, but the pool is equipped with easy steps to get out so for anyone who is not afraid in the water, there is no real danger) or max two couples. There are three double bedrooms but to my opinion with three couples it would get too crowded.

Restaurants in the main square; there are several and we tried three of them. The Olympic Bar is more pub-like but the food is really good. And when you order the spare ribs you get enough to feed a pride of lions. Oleander, which was our favorite, offers very good food in a laid-back atmosphere. Every night they have full house. That should say enough. DVenue is more stylish and obviously the service is a bit more formal, but the calamaris rings (starter) are excellent. Prices don't make a big difference. Starter, main course, wine, coffee and brandy will set you off some 70 euros for two. And if you stick to a pizza and a beer, that would be some 10 euros each.

So is Ta Happin the perfect holiday rental? Well, nothing is perfect. The sofa is not very comfortable, the beds are quite hard (personal taste) and it is clean, but not spotless. On the other hand, you have everything you need here, manager Aaron is a great guy who drops by every few days to check if eveything is all right and you are right in the middle of a beautiful island with a very tranquile atmosphere. If I ever would return to Gozo, I would certainly stay here again.

Ta Happin Farmhouse is a true gem. Everything that you would need for a self catering holiday is here. Fantastic clean pool and outdoor barbecue area tucked away on a quiet street makes this a tranquil relaxing break. The village square is approx 15 min walk for bars and restaurants, but there is also a good bus service 2 min walk from farmhouse. Aaron the owner of the farmhouse was very pleasant and helpful nothing was to much trouble. A welcome pack was very appreciated. All communications with Aaron was dealt with quickly I would truly recommend Ta Happin Farmhouse

Thank you for the review. The remarks are duly noted and we will make our best to improve on any features that have not been up to standard.

I would have thought that a 10 minute easy walk from the village square to Ta Happin farmhouse, after a good satisfying meal in one of the lovely restaurants in the village square, would be enjoyable. :)
