If you like ocean views this is the place for you, the unobstructed panorama is one of the best in Gozo! The apartment is sunny bright and modern with two terraces, just perfect to relax/recharge and only a short walk to the harbour, shops and cafes.
Situated above the Grand Hotel in Mgarr Gozo, this new apartment has breathtaking sea views over the lovely blue Mediterranean, Comino and Malta.
There is one bedroom, a modern kitchen, full bathroom, a sun filled lounge and two terraces, one overlooking the sea and harbour, and the other overlooking the pool area.
The complex is new, but has been cleverly designed to match the traditional Maltese architecture with warm honey coloured limestone walls and brightly coloured balconies. The gated complex has a swimming pool, sunbathing area and elevator.
The penthouse is a perfect retreat for couple to relax and recharge, only 5 minutes walk to the harbour, pubs, shops and cafes. You can explore the whole of Malta and Gozo or simply laze and watch the ferries and yachts cross the sparkling blue ocean.
The south facing penthouse apartment (80 m2 total area) is on the top (5) floor of a newly built complex with a pool, sunbathing area and a security gate. The apartment is served by an elevator. We live 5 minutes away to handle all your queries.
The lounge and front terrace overlook the harbour, ocean, Comino and Malta in a wonderful sweeping panorama. The terrace is of good size with outdoor chairs and tables. The lounge opens on to the terrace through large sliding glass doors and makes a fabulous indoor/outdoor area. The room has a three seater couch and Ottoman, a small LED TV with a satellite box and free to air European channels.
The dining area has table that can seat 2/4 with two chairs and two stools. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with induction hob, microwave with grill, fridge/freezer, automatic washing machine, kettle,toaster and cooking utensils etc..
The bathroom is of good size and has a full bath/shower.
The bedroom has a large double bed (1.6m x 2m), chest of drawers, bedside table and walk in wardrobe. The second (good size) terrace leads off the bedroom, and overlooks the swimming pool. The two terraces mean that there is always a place to sit in the sun or in the shade at any time of the day!
All the furniture and fittings were new at the beginning of 2012.
All amenities are close by, public buses are just a few minutes walk away, and can be a good way of exploring the island. If you like walking then Gozo has some excellent country walks.
Ghajnsielem (Salem's spring) is 10 minutes walk and is a typical Gozitan village with the church, the square and the shops, pubs and cafes surrounding it.
The harbour at Mgarr 10 minutes walk the other way, is a picturesque working port with brightly painted fishing boats, ferries and a marina, the area also has some of the best pubs and restaurants on the island. You can catch a boat to Comino, the ferry to Malta or walk along the coast either side of the harbour where you will find secluded swimming spots with crystal clear water.

Wow! This was our initial reaction as we walked through the door of the apartment and things continued to match and exceed that first impression during the week we stayed on Gozo.
Kerry and Nora were excellent hosts, making us feel very welcome from the outset, by meeting us at the ferry and providing thoughtful provisions to ensure our survival till we got to the shops the next day.
Gozo is a wonderful place for walkers and sightseers and it was really good to return after a busy day out, to such a lovely apartment , which was immaculately kept and has a very comfy bed and an outstanding view.
Thank you both - we very much hope to return and certainly will be recommending the place to anyone in need of Rest & Recuperation!
Thanks so much Sarah! Yes, "WOW" is the first word used by everyone as they walk in and we are genuinely pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. We know you did a lot of walking around Gozo and together with the sound sleep, it seemed to do the trick as you both seemed very relaxed and recharged when you left. We look forward to seeing you again.
Our stay at Kerry&Nora's place was really great! The hosts are sooooo wellcome! Kerry met us at the port, took us to the apartment and showed everything arround, even gave a great priced car rental contacts. We loved the apartment and to be honest- in real life it's more beautiful than in photos! The location is convenient, quiet and safe. The view is awesome! There is also nice pool in courtyard. Everything is so clean and cozy! It's a great place to relax!
Thanks for the kind words, Agnese. For us the best part of hosting is seeing the relaxed and radiant faces of our guests after a a few days stay at our place, it is very rewarding! You two were positively beaming and we are so happy for you both. Enjoy your cool winter and come back some time.
This is really a wonderful place! The appartment is outstanding and everything was very clean. Kerry picked us up at the ferry and Nora gave us a good address for renting a car. They were both very helpfull. And the view is undescribeable.
Sólo podemos tener buenas palabras tanto para los anfitriones como para el apartamento.
Kerry y Nora son una pareja que te hacen sentir en casa desde el primer momento, te aconsejan sobre lugares que visitar, te obsequian con queso, vino y otras cosas más.
El apartamento increíble, buena ubicación, realmente es lo que se ve en las fotos, preciosos, acogedor, con unas vistas increíbles, limpio,.
En resumen hemos pasado unos días inolvidables en Gozo, sólo podemos tener palabras de agradecimiento hacia Kerry y Nors.
Muchas gracias Sonia! Thank you for your warm review and kind words. It's great that you enjoyed your holiday with us. Love to have you both again any time. Warmest regards from beautiful Gozo.
Sonia's review -
We can only have good words for both hosts for the apartment. Kerry and Nora are a couple who make you feel at home from the first moment, they advise on places to visit, get complimentary cheese, wine and other things. The amazing apartment, great location, really is what you see in the pictures, beautiful, cozy, with amazing views, clean. Finally we spent a few unforgettable days in Gozo, we can only have words of thanks to Kerry and Nora.
We spent four wonderful days, Kerry and Nora were very welcoming and caring. The apartment is perfect: well located, with a beautiful sea view (pictures are not misleading) and very clean. Five minutes walking from the harbor and all buses, we couldn't ask for more. Thanks Kerry and Nora for your kindness!!
Kerry et Nora sont deux hôtes très accueillants, et très attentifs à ce que vous passiez un séjour reposant et agréable. L'appartement est comme sur les photos, très bien aménagé avec une magnifique vue qui nous a fait préféré la maison au restaurant. Très bien situé, nous avons découvert tout Gozo (à 5 min en marchant des bus et du port), nous avons adoré séjourner chez eux. Merci beaucoup Kerry and Nora pour votre gentillesse!

We have had a wonderful time during our stay 'with' Kerry and Nora. The apartment is very well situated and the view is really astonishing. The hospitality you get is rare these days, Kerry and Nora have been wonderful. It is not very often that you feel so welcome. So, we can really recommend this apartment and we are confident you will have a great time, just like us. Kerry and Nora, to you, all the best!
Kerry and Nora were extremely friendly and accommodating hosts, with their hospitality only matched by their fabulous apartment - yes, the ‘romantic sea-view’ is nothing short of breath-taking! But even before we reached the apartment we were met with a warm welcome to our holiday as soon as we stepped out of the ferry terminal. Kerry kindly helped us with our bags into his car and took us on a small tour around the locale before heading up to our holiday home. There, we walked past the other apartment blocks in the complex and the lovely communal pool (just what you need after a day of adventure!), into our block and up to the apartment via the lift.
Again, stepping through the door we were given a lovely welcome by Nora into their fantastic property and were immediately presented by the fantastic view of the ferry port, Comino, and Malta from the comfort of their cosy balcony. (It was a real pleasure to wake up to this sight every morning!) Once we caught our breath back, we were then given a comprehensive tour around the apartment leaving no stone unturned (perfectly demonstrated after Kerry and Nora left when I took one of the beers they left for us from the fridge, grabbed the bottle opener from the drawer, and then put the cap in the bin without having to give a second thought where everything was!) They then offered some pretty useful advice about staying on the island, using the facilities, and things to do etc. A highlight for us was Kerry’s suggestion of the walk to Hondoq Bay, as we mentioned we enjoy a bit of snorkelling, which isn’t reachable by bus and therefore it is a bit removed from the tourists. It is around a 45 min walk along rocky outcrops, but it was a lot of fun and the Bay itself more than makes the effort worthwhile, and the snorkelling experience there was amazing.
All in all, we had an amazing holiday and Kerry and Nora’s apartment made for a brilliant home-from-home during the week. Being situated close to the ferry/bus terminal made getting around very easy, and there is also a bus stop no more than 5 minutes away from the apartment for the 322 service. The restaurants around the harbour are also a short walk away, and the walk back up the hill to the apartment after eating out made stuffing our faces a little less guilt-ridden! The place, the location, the setting, the facilities, the food!… all made for a perfect week for us, and it just leaves us to say thank you so much to Kerry and Nora for letting us stay. We hope to see you both again very soon!
Sarah, you put us all to shame, such a descriptive and informative piece of
writing, talk about 'no stone left unturned'! You put a smile on our face :-)
Like most other travellers we have read and dissected countless reviews. As hosts we have been fortunate to have received so many kind and wonderful reviews. However, your humorous and entertaining 'short story' is truly unique and we really appreciate your effort. The children in your school are very lucky!
Look forward to seeing you both again soon.
Kerry and Nora
We are a couple of Nomads that have travelled the world and fell in love with Gozo and bought this apartment in 2011.
We simply want to share this special spot in Gozo with you!
