“Great Flat in a good location”
Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

I have stayed in many rental places in Gozo and this was the only one which was as good as the description. It has an ideal location in Xlendi that has easy access to the middle of town but from a quiet back street.
Xlendi itself is a small village with a wide range of restaurant's ( & a great gelateria ), a selection of dive shops (I recommend Utina) and regular bus schedule to the whole island.

The flat is clean and well appointed, Elaine is more than helpful.
There is no air con, but with fans & tucked against the cliff it was cooler than other places I have stayed in during the summer & a maid comes in once a week to refresh the place.
The guide books to Gozo recommend ear plugs and I would go with that, One Saturday night there was a bazuki band playing that I particularly wanted to sleep through ( heavy day diving) and there can be noise from the local wildlife (feathered).
I am already planning my return.

We had a great 10 days at Xlendi Bay - what a beautiful place. The apartment is very spacious with everything you need (except air-con, but there are fans) .
Plenty of restaurants and very cheap & reliable public transport all in easy reach. Elaine also organised our transfers which worked perfectly.
We hope to return again, maybe in Spring - July is very hot !

“Fled the next morning”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

I don't know why this property was rated "Excellent" by other people - don't want to question their common sense and integrity. My family (wife and two minor children) and I fled to the nearby hotel the next morning after a sleepless night. The roosters and some histerical birds cried loudly all night long right next to the building and there was no way to escape it, the bed was pretty uncomfortable, the flush in the toilet did not work well, the water pressure was low and the view from the balcony was rather unexciting - you can see the buildings in the distance, but not the sea. I'm not even mentioning that the TV did not work and that there is no elevator in the building, so prepare to do some workout. The owner wanted us to go to the nearby village just to collect the key from the apartment (it's after a long travel with small kids) and it took some negotiations before she arranged for her housekeeper to meet us at the apartment. If this is "excellent" for some people - I only feel sorry for them, but I also feel sorry for my family and myself for wasting time and money on this "Azure Escape". At least I understand now why it's called "escape"/

Management Response
Jul 11, 2014
It is very unpleasant to receive our first ever negative review in over 10 years of renting out this property, particularly as this is the first we have heard of any of these complaints. The booking process was indeed more complicated as my guest was based in Hungary, so to assist him, I reserved his dates and allowed him a significant amount of extra time to make his payment because he experienced some issues with transferring money, so any issues with booking did not originate with me. With regards to key pick up, as soon as he requested a change of arrangements I contacted my agent and asked her if she could, as a favour, meet this family at the apartment door to save them a 10 minute detour, which she kindly did responding to my request within hours. Regarding the other 'complaints', which although are a matter of opinion, we never like to receive, they could have been addressed had we been notified. However, it is a shame that we were not made aware of these issues until 2 months later in a public forum rather than being addressed directly.

“Super, value for money appartment”

person found this review helpful

This is the second time that my wife and I have stayed in this well appointed, spacious and spotlessly clean apartment. Both times have been in March (previous stay was in 2012).

Xlendi is very quiet at this time of year but there are still many high quality and good value restaurants open to choose from if you do not wish to cook your own meals.

I have been telling anyone who will still listen to me to visit this wonderful island. There are photo opportunities at every turn.

Elaine's property makes the perfect base for exploring the island whether it be on foot, by car or the excellent and timely bus service.

“Xlendi, beautiful place tostay and explore Gozo”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

people found this review helpful

Gozo is a step back in time and pace. Xlendi manages to have a great buzz on the harbourside, without being overdeveloped. Azure Escapes is tucked away just behind the harbour in a quiet part of Xlendi, a beautiful apartment, what you see in the pictures is what you get, and more! High quality accommodation for two couples. My husband Andy, son Sam, his wife Han and I spent a fabulous week there in June. We left reluctantly with the temperature creeping up to 30 degrees!
Plenty of room for 4 on the balcony to soak up the morning sun, then plenty of shade after midday. Highly recommended for a first time in Gozo, a great base to explore from, and rest after a hard day sunbathing on the beach at Ramla Bay! In two minutes you are into the easy paced nightlife on the harbourside, with a degree of sophistication, wide choice of restaurants and beautiful sunsets. Well managed accommodation, which was excellent value for money.

Elaine's apartment is a great location in the heart of Xlendi. The apartment is beautiful and very clean. The accomodation was perfect for two of us but would have comfortably fit another couple. The balcony gets the morning sun which is perfect for a lazy start to the day. Elaine was incredibly helpful - always quick to respond to emails and made it very easy to extend our stay. Would highly recommend.

“A Peaceful Hideaway”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 for a stay in February 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We spent 5 weeks in Elaine's apartment in Xlendi and really had such a peaceful time here. Gozo is such an amazing place and with such a great bus system, it makes getting around the island really easy.

Some essentials for you to know:

- The apartment is very clean, plenty of natural light and is very easy to live in (some days we never left the apartment!).
- Wifi Internet was great and reliable
- Plenty of hot water for two people to shower
- Well set up to self-cater (good kitchen but no oven)
- The balcony gets great sunlight until about 11:30am in Winter
- Set in a quite back-street - so no through-traffic
- Comfortable bed (we slept very well)
- Good heaters for the winter months (which also becomes air-con for the hotter months).

If you love walking and seeing new sights, then this apartment is a great place to stay in. Elaine was very easy to deal with and responded very quickly to all our questions. Sylvia the house manager is also lovely (she came and cleaned once a week).

The only thing that worried us at first was how quiet it actually was. Arriving in late January, there was really hardly anyone in Xlendi, and no one else staying in the block of apartments (they all seem to be holiday rentals). After a few weeks we started to see a few more faces around the place, but it took a little bit of getting used to - just something to be mindful of in winter. It's really safe in Gozo, so you will be more than fine!

Give Gozo a chance! This apartment is really great - we hope we can find more like it as we travel the world.
