Interaction with guests

Our delightful manager Leah will be available to answer all your needs and show you around the house on arrival. She will also arrange a pick up from the airport/ferry and provide a hamper of food essentials should you require.

Other things to note

The house has quite a few stairs, but they are wide and easy to manage. There's a handrail throughout and no large gaps. We lived here with our young children.
You can hear the bells of St George's Basilica very early and at time to time throughout the day. They gently call people to church, with single chimes...somewhat adding to the atmosphere!
During the festa weeks of San Gorg (mid-July) and Santa Marija (mid-August) the area is extremely loud! There are fireworks at all times of the day and processions which go past the house. You can sit on the balcony and watch giant statues of saints being carried through our street. If you are looking for peace and quiet, these weeks should definitely be avoided but they are lots of fun if you want a true Gozo experience!
The house is very old, and the walls are made of thick limestone which can be a bit crumbly and salty. We maintain the walls regularly and have painted some of them, and left some of the old paint on some walls because we liked the colours and seeing the history of the walls! On some walls, the new white paint tends to flake off easily when touched because of the nature of the limestone. It's very normal in this style of house, but we thought we had better mention it.

The house is really perfect, it's a great place to stay, very spacious, and also centrally located with just a few mins walk to many attractions like the citadel. We also went diving with Atlantis diving who were fantastic. The air conditioning is great in the two rooms upstairs. One of the mattresses upstairs was rather hard, but overall a wonderful stay and Leah gave us a lovely welcome, many thanks!

Annabel and Leah are very nice hosts! We loved the Corner-House, it's very nice, bright interrior and so charming - the balkony is just one of the highlights! We also had mice kommunication (we were 6 Friends, all arriving at another day) it was so simple and just perfekt! Nice location, you can do everything with bus, or have a 30min walk to the sea. Also a big thank you to Leah and Anabell for repairing the toilets twice and so fast. We really would come again!

We also found it a great located from which to visit the rest of Gozo - good bus links so you don't have to hire a car if you don't want to. Thanks Annabel and Leah for being so helpful and accommodating.

Our stay at The Corner House in Gozo was a great experience!! The house was perfect for our party of five and very comfortable with everything we needed for our stay. Very close to St George's Square with a great shopping area nearby! We found the bus service excellent and the locals are just delightful and happy to help if you need it! Our hosts Annabel and Leah were there for us every step of the way and even went the extra mile for us!! We will be back for sure!

The Corner House is a gorgeous little slice of Gozo - beautifully decorated and right in the centre of Victoria. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could want. Booking and communication with Annabel was swift and easy and all questions answered with lots of helpful advice. Despite it being down a small street, check in was arranged so that it was really easy to find and be welcomed. I would not hesitate to book here again.

Hello, we're Annabel and Michael. We are British/Australian and have 3 children, aged 8, 12 and 15. We've been coming to Gozo for many years (Annabel since she was a baby!) and live here on and off. Michael travels with work and Annabel spends most of her time between the UK and Gozo. We've travelled the world and lived in many countries, but we are always drawn back to the magical island of Gozo. We love the way it changes during in the seasons, from the green fields full of wild flowers in the spring and winter, perfect for long walks and exploring, to the long lazy days swimming in turquoise waters in the hot summer and autumn (though we swim all year round!). Gozo is one of the friendliest places you'll ever visit, and echoes of a glorious history dating back to the Knights of St John, the Ottoman Empire, and mysterious prehistoric cultures, still resonate.
