About The Owner

We are a couple from Gozo (Malta). We like travelling a lot and are open to home swap options in winter months too. You are welcome in Gozo and we look forward to host you on our wonderful island.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004

Why The Owner chose Island of Gozo

The property was bought to rent out and act as summer residence. We chose to buy this prime residence in Marsalforn first and foremost for its central location and the views it offers of the bay. The area is known for its tranquility and peacefulness in the winter months, serving as an ideal getaway relaxing break whilst it is very popular in the summer months with Gozitans, Maltese people and tourists taking their summer holidays, enjoying waterfront walks in the evenings and dining out in the various seaside restaurants. We use this property as our second residence for short vacations and rent it out too.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is centrally located with easy access to public transport opening access to the whole island. Public transport is quite cheap in Gozo, thus offering a budget way of exploring the island. Also from Bayside and Theos, one can start countryside and seaside walks leading to various villages or bays. The famous salt pans in Xwejni can be reached within 20 mins on foot.

You are also spoilt for choice where to dine out the evenings in Marsalforn or if you prefer you can enjoy a drink in one of the pubs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from our fabulous wedding in Marsalforn Gozo. We stayed in Bayside apartment, it is a lovely spacious apartment, right in the square of Marsalforn with the beach right across the road. The balcony goes half way around the apartment so not alone to you have great views but it has lots of natural light and is very airy. The owners Joe and his wife Claudette are very friendly and accommodating, there always on hand if you need anything. This was our 3rd visit to Marsalforn and sure was the best accommodation we have stayed in so far- look no further, we will surely return in the future, Thanks Joe & Claudette for helping make our wedding/honeymoon so special we would recommend Bayside apartment to everyone wanting to holiday in Marsalforn.

Thanks again Ger and Danny

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

Returning to our beloved Marsalforn for the 7 th time, we decided to look for alternative accommodation. This apartment could not have been better. Perfectly located with fantastic views, well equipped and very comfortable. We have already booked for next year.

very Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Nice flat, couldn't be better positioned for the beach and promenade. I would have given 5 stars but the bar below was busy and noisy at the week-end until way into the wee small hours. Joe was good and helpful. All in all a success

Wonderful location in a idealic fishing village

  • 5 of 5

This apartment allows you to be located in the heart of a busy fishing and holiday village. You can have your own privacy in the air conditioned apartment or spend your time in the bars and restaurants outside the front door. We enjoyed siting on the balcony and people watching.

The apartment itself is clean and well equipped . It is good value for money

Super holiday

  • 5 of 5

Super apartment in a superb location facing Marsalforn Bay. Close to all amenities. It is above a bar but never a lot of noise. Joe the owner is extremely helpful. Our favourite restaurant is Odyssey good food at good prices. This was our second visit and are planning a third.

How do you improve what's already the best!!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this lovely apartment. Clean, tidy, comfortable, and with a well equipped modern kitchen. The owners, Joe and Claudette, most welcoming and helpful - nothing is too much trouble. Fresh towels and bed linen on request and it couldn't be in a better location with great views over the bay. Close to many excellent restaurants and very easy to commute, by any means, between villages. Excellent public transport network.

Sitting at the large front window watching a sleepy Marsalforn wake-up is simply the best way to start the day!

We love it!

It's our own little 'treasure island'!!

Happy relaxing times

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I rented the two bed apartment at Bayside for less than we would have paid for a room in a hotel. It was great to have a room and bathroom each plus fully-equipped kitchen, not that we used it as there are plenty of restaurants nearby. The apartment is in a prime corner location, great for the promenade and beach and superb for people watching from the balconies which are on either side of the living room. It's also really close to the bus stop, from where we went on various trips.

The apartment was very clean and comfortable and Joe, the owner, was very helpful, even to the point of giving us a lift to the ferry back to Malta. I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a home from home to stay in while enjoying a chilled time in Gozo.

It has a lift but access to the main bedroom is up a few steps so perhaps this would need to be taken into account if your party includes someone with a disability.

Electricity is included but it's extra for the air-conditioning but we found we didn't need it - open windows gave a lovely through breeze - though it would be necessary during hotter times of year.
