I enjoyed my stay at Gawhra, it was beautiful, very spacious and looks even better than the photograph. The street is quiet and there are restaurants and shops close by as the centre is only a 5min walk. The outdoor deck is lovely, great for sunbathing and the pool is lovely. The staff at Baron holiday homes were very helpful throughout the trip and made us feel welcome.
There were a few downsides, one was the shower. It was very weak, not a lot of power coming out of the hose and the taps weren’t working properly so it was hot and cold at the same time. Also, the house gets quite cold at night and there weren’t clear instructions on how to turn on the heating so it was freezing most nights. The beds aren’t too comfortable and the pool is absolutely freezing so we didn’t get to enjoy it.
Overall it was a pleasant stay and I would definitely come back to Gozo.
