Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
We want your holiday to be a good experience so we have equipped our apartment with the things that will make it a home from home for you, including FREE WIFI and a selection of books and DVD's for your use.
There is a nice comfortable terrace where you may choose to eat, with views of the dramatic valley and the bay
We also supply a small complimentary welcome pack for your arrival, including bottled water, enough coffee, tea and sugar to tide you over, plus milk, bread, spread or butter and either cake or biscuits.
(We are also happy to get a small amount of other provisions for you on request for which you can reimburse us on arrival)
You may want to hire a car to explore the island but if not, there is a bus stop a few metres from the apartment and its only a 10 minute journey to the capital city Victoria where you can visit the Citadell as well as St Mary's Cathedral located in the heart of the city. From Victoria, also known as Rabat by the locals, you can catch a bus to visit any village in Gozo.
In the village of Xaghra there are the Ggantija temples, thought to be the oldest free standing temples in the world, also Calypso's Cave. Or Dwejra to see the famous Azzure window . There are so many great places to visit and since the new bus system was introduced in July 2011, the bus service to and from Xlendi now runs later into the night.
In Xlendi itself there is a small sandy beach that is good for all, and because of the reef formations, is ideal for snorkeling. So, for the more adventurous, you can swim and snorkel off the rocks alongside the beach. There is also a well established diving school.
There are many good restaurants and bars for you to discover in Xlendi and in the summer months there is a popular open-air venue called 'La Grotta', situated in an open cave approximately half a mile away on the hillside leading out of Xlendi. It is ideally positioned within walking distance but far enough away that you will not be disturbed by the music if you prefer a quieter evening.

For your holiday in Gozo, you would need to transfer from Luqa Airport in Malta. You may wish to hire a car and cross on the ferry. It is €15.70 for the car and driver and €4.65 for subsequent adults. Children 3-12 €1.15
Alternatively you might wish to have a transfer.
This can be a split transfer where you would have a taxi to the ferry port at Cirkewwa, Malta, then another taxi from M'Garr Harbour, Gozo, to the apartment but be responsible for your bags on and off the ferry. There is a cart that will carry your bags.
For a stress free start to your holiday you may prefer a full transfer which would be a taxi from Luqa Airport, Malta, to the apartment in Xlendi, Gozo. This is a far more expensive option but it may be what you want. Either way, you would pay your own ferry ticket on returning to Malta. We can give details for these transfers on request.
IN SOME CASES, WE WILL BE ABLE TO DO THE TRANSFER OURSELVES AT A LESSER COST.
THIS IS STRICTLY A NON SMOKING APARTMENT. The apartment is more suited to families or couples.
The Island of Gozo region
The island of Gozo had a population of approx 25,000, the majority of these are farmers and fisherman, Gozo and its inhabitants are very different from Malta. A much quieter way of life and far less developed. It has a much greener countryside with steep valleys with rugged cliffs and stunning bays.
Gozo is wonderful walking country with plenty of well trodden tracks through the more famous of the islands landmarks such as Calypso's Cave or the Azure Window.
The Maltese Islands offer a varied and scenic playground for rock climbers of all levels.
Xlendi is also a centre for diving and there is an established diving school in Xlendi who have been operating since 1989, and offer a wealth of experience and local knowledge, whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced diver. They offer over 50 shore and boat sites with depths from 5m to 45m in Gozo, Comino and north west Malta; and sights from natural rock formations to sunken wrecks and reefs bursting with marine life.
First timers can have a go at a trial dive at the shallow end of a safe bay and experienced divers can join others of similar experience on accompanied dives. Unaccompanied diving is possible for those divers holding the local government dive permit.

"If you go nowhere else in Malta - get here and rent this."
Where to start? Probably with the rental we were in on the mainland which turned out to be basic - that is putting it nicely. So, when we stumbled onto Carol and Grahame's flat we fell in love. … More
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Any good review is an absolute positive but when we receive such a glowing one, it makes us glow! :)

"Xlendi - We'll Be Back!"
After reading all the previous reviews of Carol and Graham's apartment, we had big expectations, however, we weren't disappointed. In fact from the moment we walked in we felt right at home, and over the next 10 days enjoyed all the comforts of home. The apartment was bigger than we expected, was well laid out and had everything right on hand. Having 2 toilets and 2 showers was a luxury and the use of a washing machine meant no extra baggage fees if you choose to travel with a budget airline!!
Xlendi itself is a wonderful place to stay. Being away from the big tourist spots makes you feel a bit special. There are good swimming areas, enjoyable restaurants right on the water and the staff are very friendly. Xlendi has lots of places to explore and even though the buses are extremely efficient (and air conditioned) Victoria is only a 25 minute walk away. The buses are great for seeing all the tourist spots around Gozo, but there is ample space at the apartment for a car if you prefer.
Carol and Graham – thank you for everything – your tips on things to see and do, your attention to the smallest detail for our comfort and enjoyment and everything else that made our trip so memorable.
Thank you so much for your glowing review. It is so nice that our efforts are appreciated, to make your holiday in our apartment, as comfortable and trouble free as we possibly can. We would be happy to welcome you back, anytime.
