Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Rite and Ray were helpful from the very start. From email communications & info to meeting us at the ferry terminal late at night for a personal escort. At the house, Ray was always responsive and helpful. Rooms were basically clean and organized, including kitchen and baths. This residential section outside Zagra is relatively quiet.....especially at late nights. Walking to the Ggigantija ruins is 10-15 minutes, and a small convenience store is 2 minutes.......otherwise public-bus transport or rental car can be used for larger shopping (well-stocked with natural and normal supermarket foods) in Victoria. We paid to have Butterfly all to ourselves.....this afforded us total privacy. If you're in the mood to share space, then it doesn't matter. Unless you want to be directly on the seacoast, or in a flat or hotel with airconditioning......this creative/artsy renovation of classic-old-stone to modern-stone houses are interesting.....and can work.

  • We spent a fantastic journey at Butterfly house!
    We had one of the houses, with 3 bedrooms and a pool, with very confortable bathrooms.
    It was so great that we spent most of the time in the house, having fun in the pool and on the 2 terrasses with perfect combination of sun and shadow.
    And Ray was always there when we needed something, always nice, helping and taking care of the house.
    We would definetely recommend the place, especially for large number of people as there are different houses to welcome a lot of people, keeping intimicity.

  • We had a great time at Butterfly Houses. Rite Anne met us at the harbour and drove us straight to the house after a quick tour of the area. Raymond was equally accommodating. The house is very spacious and unique and beautiful and in a great location. We hope one day to return!

  • We had a FANTASTIC stay at Butterfly Houses in Xaghra. Rite Anne was extremely helpful before we booked in answering questions and making recommendations 9we stayed over New Years) and it was a pleasure to have her show us around the property when we arrived. The pictures on airbnb do not do this place justice. It really is fantastic. We had the entire first (3 bedroom) house to ourselves and enjoyed many evening in the huge living area downstairs cooking and relaxing. Although it was January there are pleasant areas to sit outside and eat including a sun trap terrace at the top of the property – perfect for reading books or catching up on emails (free wifi). The location is good for long walks down to the beautiful Ramla bay and neighbouring villages and the buss network in Malta (which runs like clock work) makes it easy to get back to the village from pretty much all locations. There is plenty to do and explore in the vicinity and although we were just two people the property would be perfect for groups and families too. I would certainly recommend booking this beautiful place and Rite Anne as a host.

  • This place is amazing! I went to Malta in the peakseason and managed to get a booking at this house i Xaghra. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed every day. An amazing roofterras and a pool i the middle of the kitchen, A perfect vacation on the Island of Gozo. The buss stop is just around the corner and from there you can get anywhere on the island. I'm looking forward to stay there again.

  • We loved our stay at the Butterfly Houses. We had the joy and luck to have one whole house to ourselves and it was a dream. Both Rite Anne and Ray are very friendly and have decorated the place beautifully. It's also in a great spot with lovely walks and views over the valley and Ramla bay. We're very happy with our holiday and would definitely recommend a romantic break here!

  • The Butterfly Houses were absolutely stunning! I would highly recommend them for other groups - we didn't want to leave!
    Rite Anne was most helpful in the lead up to our holiday. Ray was also so helpful once we arrived.
    It was a 10 out of 10 experience! Thank you!!!
