“Comfortable house with pool”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a nice house close to the lovely Ramla Bay.
The house is big and comfortable, with lovely plants throughout and a well maintained pool.
Some of the fittings and furnishings are a bit tired i.e. old tatty sofa, broken shower cabin and the cooker could be a bit bigger in a house that fits more than 6 people.
The owner was prompt in responding to all queries. The alleyway and its houses are charming in an otherwise run down area.

Thank you for your overall positive comments including the suggestions for improvement. We acknowledge that some features could be improved. We have bought the house recently and are in the proces of refurbishment where necessary. This year we have re-tiled the pool and installed air conditioners and have plans to continue with the refurbishment process even though we believe that it offers a good level of comfort. In so far as the location is concerned, the farmhouse is located on the outskirts of the village and that is really part of its beauty offering peace and tranquility. It is located in a residential area not far from the village core and also close to a panoramic walk with great country views close to Calypso's cave. Describing this area as rundown is somewhat harsh. Thank you for your overall positive review.

“Perfect farmhouse with exceptionally helpful owners”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at Ta Cikku for 4 night and we will definitely be going back. Firstly, the owners, Sandra and Victor are lovely, caring people who went out of their way to be helpful before our stay and accommodate our sleeping arrangement! They were in touch frequently with details of the farmhouse, maps of how to find Ta Cikku, local supermarkets and many other bits of helpful information. The farmhouse is spotlessly clean, plenty of clean towels, every kitchen utensil you could need, payable air con, WiFi and many more great features. The pool is a perfect size and was even attended to while we were there to check all was in order. The outside eating area is in the shade so you can eat in comfort but the rest of the garden has sun all day. A truly great find and we cannot wait to go back.

Thank you for your comments. We do try our very best to provide a great experience to our customers. That is why we keep in touch during the visit and address any difficulties as quickly as possible. One additional clarification ...it is only the air conditioner that is on pay-per-use....all the other amenities (including the wi-fi) are available at no extra cost. The outside eating area is also our favourite feature....our little paradise. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Thanks for the positive review. We try hard to ensure that guests are left with a great experience. The combination of the sunny pool and shade in the deck area is indeed one of the features we like very much. It is also comforting to note that you have tasted the hospitality of the Xaghra business community. I wish you a pleasant and comfortable stay for the remaining days of your holiday.

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

The farmhouse was great - having spent the weekend in Valletta, it was perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle, with lots of space, a nice small pool and situated in a quiet part of Gozo on the outskirts of Xaghra. A bargain, no frills stay.

The position for seeing the sights of Gozo was good. Having a car meant every part of the island was accessible from the farmhouse, including Marsalforn for scuba diving.

Viktor was very helpful and flexible in terms of arranging for the key pick up and explaining how everything works at the farmhouse. The only thing to watch out for were the internal spiral staircase leading up to the first floor as they turn at quite a tight angle and wouldn't be suitable for older people or others who aren't sure-footed! The first floor can also be accessed from the front courtyard so bags etc can be carried up that way.

Thanks for your positive review. The farmhouse indeed is a place where you can relax and wind down. At the same time it is within walking distance of the village centre where there a number of good quality restaurants. The location of Xaghra is also quite central in Gozo. We acknowledge your comment about the internal staircase which tends to be a standard feature in many Gozitan farmhouses. As you mentioned there is also more comfortable access to the first floor via the external staircase from the internal courtyard.

We stayed at this property for a fews days in September. Comfortable and well equipped farmhouse in a quiet alley with lovely views of the countryside. The property itself was very clean and well maintained and the kitchen very well equipped. Good internet access. Host was very nice and accessible. We will return for sure! :)
