Johannes B. (Germany – September 2020)
Thank you for making our holiday on Gozo an absolutely amazing experience!
We enjoyed every part of it – the villa, the BBQ, your recommendations and most of all, using your bikes to get around the island and to stop wherever we like it. You truly made us feel at home and we will recommend staying with you to anyone looking for a lovely place to holiday. We might even become “returners” ourselves, because we loved it so much and could easily spend another week here. Or maybe a lifetime 🙂
Thank you for your outstanding hospitality.
All the best to you, Frank!

Sophie L. (Germany – September 2020)
Frank’s place has a beautiful view over the sea and comino. It was perfect to enjoy the terrace and do barbecues. Franks was very kind, he even left us some Maltese specialities in the oven upon our arrival 🙂
Kurt C. (Malta – August 2020)
Absolutely fantastic. 10 out of 10!
Sam R. (UK – August 2020)
August W. (Poland – August 2020)

Liselotte P. (Germany – July 2020 – third consecutive stay)
Many thanks for the nice reception and the warm welcome… your help with everything is limitless … a thousand thanks for all.
Ricardo C. (Malta – July 2020)
Thank you very much for your hospitality. By far this was the best accommodation experience for us! We really enjoyed the front terrace with the view, very quite and relaxing and the main bedroom was super nice! Slept like babies and we woke up at 11am for the first time in months! The ftira was such a nice touch, it was delicious. Ricardo is definitely enjoying the Portuguese channels on TV 🙂 All the best!
Marc M. (Malta – July 2020)
Christina W. (Malta – June/July 2020)
Great base to relax in Gozo.
Nicole C. (Malta – June 2020)
A truly beautiful space. Extremely clean, well stocked, spacious and home to some breathtaking views. A holiday we surely won’t forget. Thank you Frank for making us feel at home! Will surely be back again 🙂
Iana T. (Malta – June 2020)
It has been a gorgouus stay for us, especially due to our special occasion (my mum’s big birthday!) Thank you. Your effort to make us comfortable, your heartfelt welcome add extra touch. We envy all of your future guests who will be able to enjoy it too. And we will come back!
Stephen C. (Malta – May 2020)
We did enjoy our stay here to the max… Everything clean and nothing missing, it feels like home. Have to say this will not be last to visit this wonderful house. Also you are a very friendly person and helpful one in all ways. Grazzi.
Sue H. (Canada – March 2020)
Frank is a warm and helpful host and his townhouse is inviting and warm as well. The townhouse is decorated in the Maltese style. It has terraces/balconies on two sides and on each level so you can follow the sun (or shade). It has all the amenities you would expect and more – bicycles and beach equipment for example, and a host of information. It is within walking distance of the harbour where there are good restaurants. As many have said, Frank is a wonderful resource and it was a great pleasure to meet him.
Michael S. (England – February / March 2020)
We have so enjoyed our stay here. The house, the island, you – have been absolutely lovely.
Can only reiterate what all your other guest have said.
Grazzi hafna. Cheers!
Sandra M. (Germany – February 2020)
We had a wonderful stay at your place. You are a perfect host. Thank you very much for all your advices, the food and lovely cake. We had fantastic walks here and the weather was amazing. Also your recommendation to one80Kitchen at Mgarr harbour was great. Very delicious “Seafoodtower”. Gozo is really a beautiful island. It will not be our last time!!! Vielen Dank!!
Lenny P. (Malta – February 2020)
Frank is a very helpful and extremely accommodating host. The house is as well equipped as can be and our stay was just great all throughout! Definitely recommended
Maria S. (Ireland – January 2020)
John H. (Japan – December 2019)
You are like the genie of the lamp in the tale of Aladdin. You appeared at the ferry terminal on our arrival and whisked us weary travelers away to a lovely Mediterranean villa provided with every comfort and convenience and told us to consider it our home. On that first night, you even produced delicious warm pastizzi out of the oven in the blink of an eye to fill our hungry stomachs.
The next day you again appeared, smiling and cheerful, in order to further welcome us to your enchanged isle and provide us with detailed and comprehensive advice for enjoying its wonders. The walk you recommended to Hondoq ir-Rummien was one of the highlights of our visit.
Thank you for welcoming us into your world. Our stay at Mediterranea Seaviews has been a welcome respite for our busy lives.
We hope that we will be able to rub the magic lamp again in the future and call on you again to carry us away! Grazzi hafna!
Brigitte K. (Israel – December 2019)
Owen K. (USA – November/December 2019)
Thank you very much for the honor of staying at your beautiful home. You thought of everything someone would need here on your amazing island. Your attention to details is greatly appreciated. From our first email to the writing of this, you have gone above and beyond to make me feel welcome.
I feel I have gained a friend as well as had the best vacation ever. You and your family are so amazing. I will definitely be back.
Erik B. (Denmark – November 2019)
Franks amazing apartment is very well suited both for work and pleasure. Frank made it possible for us to make us feel at home, and making our Gozo-stay as easy and enjoyable as we could ever dream of. Frank was always there for us. We met by the baker-van nearly every morning, and Frank always asked “is everything OK?” The few times when we needed help from Frank, he responded immediately. Franks many tips on what to see in Gozo were detailed and based on a good understanding of our wishes. Frank and “Mediterranea Seaviews” is highly recommended!
Keith S. (Canada – October 2019)
We booked Franks home based on the previous reviews, 2 bathrooms, and fabulous views. We travel frequently and I have never encountered a host that was as informative prior to and after arrival as Frank. The unit lives up to his high standards. The only negative is that we didn’t stay longer then 6 nights, as his home is such a wonderful base to visit the entire island of Gozo and Comino.Thanks for creating great vacation memories with my son and daughter in law.
Ian B. (UK – October 2019)
Thank you Frank for providing us with another wonderful holiday at the lovely Mediterranea Seaviews. Each time we return we have new experiences, discover new places and meet new interesting, charming and hospitable people. From the moment the island of Gozo starts to shrink into the distance on the ferry crossing back to Malta, my wife and I start to miss it. We’ll see you next May.
Renate B. (Austria – September 2019)
We have visited your accommodation for second time and will not be our last time. We enjoyed your special care during our stay. You are the Best ever!!!
Grazzi hafna – Dankeschön
Sarah M. (UK – August 2019)
Amanda G. (Canada – August 2019)
We can’t thank you enough for making our stay in Gozo so memorable. We knew that coming here would be an amazing experience, but you have gone above and beyond to make us feel so comfortable that we felt like we were coming home everyday.
We greatly appreciated the warm welcome you gave us in an unfamiliar place. After travelling for so long, the wine and local cuisine was especially nice. We also appreciated your helpful advice. Had it not been for your suggestions, we wouldn’t have been able to experience true local culture. Thank you for being so available throughout this entire experience.
Thank you for educating us on the history and culture of Gozo. We never could have appreciated this beautiful island to the extent that we have if it wasn’t for your valuable input. You made us feel like more confident travellers.
All the thoughtful personal touches you have put into our stay have been appreciated and have not gone unnoticed.
This was our first experience here, but it won’t be our last! Thank you for everything.
Mike A. (Austria – July 2019)
Our holidays will keep in our minds 4ever. Thanks for your support and your hospitality. We enjoyed the warm welcome you gave us. Your suggestions how we get to know Gozo were golden. For sure we will come back and if someone asks me if its worth to visit Gozo I say YES YES YES.
Ilisa T. (USA – July 2019)
This was a perfect place for our family of three. Not far from the ferry and good restaurants with two bus routes nearby. Frank was a very helpful host who provided a lot of information before our arrival, transported us to and from the ferry and gave us an overview of Gozo and places of interest when we arrived. Gozo was a beautiful place to enjoy the beaches and relax.
Antonio R. (Italy – July 2019)
Our holidays on Gozo were very beautiful thanks to you who made us feel at our own home. You are a Special person, always available without intruding. You have given us the opportunity to experience real culture, tastes, emotions and friendship. Very special thanks to you.
Anne G. (UK – July 2019)
Thanks very much for having us stay at your home which was lovely. Everything was just perfect in every way. The island – hospitality – people – food, your attention to detail was second to none. You could not have done anything more to making our holiday just great. See you soon.
Anne D. & family (London, UK – July 2019)
I cannot recommend Frank as a host more. He is so welcoming and thoughtful – an excellent ambassador for the beautiful island of Gozo. He greeted us with both warmth and super helpful information – his advice never failed us. The apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and charming, with everything you could need. It is well located for the ferry from Malta and to explore the island. Frank makes everything so easy – there are bikes, snorkels, beach towels and walking maps all there for guests to use. Everything we needed – and more – was in the flat. The amazing attention to detail really stood out. I loved having one balcony looking to the sea and another to the countryside. We were also extremely grateful that we could (Hidden by Airbnb) Frank during our stay for extra local advice…this took away potential stresses on our trip. Huge thanks to Frank for being such a wonderful host. I hope we can return to this special place one day.
Oliver R. (Germany – June 2019)
Very spacious and well equipped apartment on 3 floors with 5 balconies/rooftop terraces. There is nothing to add to the description provided by the host. Location is convenient, but you have to walk about 10 minutes to reach some very good restaurants (Ghajnsielem or harbor; listen to Franks tips!). The host Frank is very attentive (very cordial welcome!) and provides you with a lot of useful information! We definitely enjoyed our stay and recommend the apartment!
Liselotte P. (Germany – June 2019) – Second Consecutive Stay
Thank you for the nice stay in your home. We had a great time and we hope we can see you next year again! And a lot of thanks for the nice evening in the pizza place and the old bar.
Glynn H. (UK – May/June 2019) – Second Consecutive Stay
2nd time we have stayed at this property and still love the place. Frank the owner lives next door and is always available should you need help or advice. He tries to ensure your stay is as relaxing as possible with little extras such as 6 packs of water available at local cost so you dont have to carry heavy items from the supermarket.
The accommodation is traditional, spotless and extremely comfortable with everything you need on hand including bikes, snorkelling gear, beach towels and umbrellas, childrens beach toys etc…
The best thing though is the views from the 3 terraces (2 with sea and Blue Lagoon views). You can choose which terrace to use depending on wind direction if you want some shade or not which is a bonus and you get 100% sunsine dawn to dusk. There is ample sun loungers, chairs and the “love swing” on the roof!!
It is a good 10 minute walk to the harbour in Mgarr with all the restaurants and bars and five more minutes to the centre of Ghajnsielem where we prefer to meet the locals in the band club which is extremely welcoming and home to Giuseppes Restaurant which is superb. You can also eaily walk to the next town of Qala which has some good restaurants and bars. The best thing about this area is that it is not commercialised and still retains the character of the villages but the locals are very welcoming.
There is a good bus service on the street with easy access to the capital Victoria with the stunning Citadel or Ramla beach with its unique red sand. more local there is Hondoq beach which can be accessed by a stunning coastal walk from the harbour (well worth the effort). The is also loads of information in the property on walks, and Gozo.
We also hit lucky this time and were able to enjoy the local festa on St Anthony Street with all the fireworks and processions. This was especially apt as the fireworks followed the Champions League Final so we were able to celebrate Liverpools win in style!!
Ian B. (UK – May 2019) – Third Consecutive Stay
Well we have just completed our third consecutive stay at Mediterranea Seaviews and we are already looking forward to our fourth. What a wonderful holiday we’ve had on this beautiful island.
Seaviews is a lovely house built in the traditional Gozo style. It is perfectly equipped and extremely comfortable. It has everything you could need, even bikes if you fancy a cycle around the island. It has no less than 5 sun terraces to choose from. To sit and take breakfast on the front terrace with its views over to little Comino is a delight we shall never tire of.
The house is so well situated with its proximity to the harbour. A short walk away are numerous excellent restaurants, a good grocery store an excellent bakery for your fresh bread and a pharmacy.
But it’s Frank who makes the difference for many of his guests. Without ever being intrusive he will take pleasure in helping you in any way he can. As a guest you are genuinely important to him. His love, knowledge and enthusiasm for his wonderful island is infectious and for us he turns our visit to Gozo into a new experience every time.
Lisa H. (USA – May 2019)
We had a wonderful trip to Gozo and the villa was perfect for our family (kids ages 11/9). Plenty of space for everyone to find their own quiet corner to read or play. We loved all of Frank’s tips and the treats that were prepared for us upon arrival. Thank you so much for all of your attention to detail. We had a wonderful stay.
Patricia W. (Australia – May 2019)
Thank you Frank for all your helpful tips on making our trip around Gozo easy. The extras you do to make our visit to all the attractions is commendable. The accommodation is very comfortable and you have thought of everything. Shame you are so far away!
Sarah M. (Scotland – April 2019)
What an absolutely fantastic week we’ve had on Gozo. Your superb hospitality made our stay very comfortable and the Mediterranea Seaviews apartment was a great place to stay! See you next time!
Ronald G. (Germany – March 2019)
Thank you for a wonderful introduction to Gozo – you are a most welcoming and generous host. Our stay at the Mediterranea Seaviews was fantastic. From the first day we felt comfortable there. Frank is a very attentive host. The house was clean and pleasantly furnished with everything we needed. We cycled every morning to the language school. In the afternoon we explored the island. Thourougly enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Thank you very much and with you the very best. Hope to see you again next year.
Greetings Ronald und Karola
Antje M. (UK – March 2019)
Frank’s feedback sounded a bit too good to be true – but his hospitality and friendly availability exceeded expectations. From comfy beds to advice on where to walk without strong northerly winds blowing us off the cliffs (yes!) – Frank was a never tiring well of friendly information. The place was clean and well equipped with lots of extras provided – bikes, beach towels etc. etc. Lifts to the ferry and supermarket and organisation of taxis to the airport were much appreciated as well. With all the care and attention we got Frank was always respectful of our space: for the duration of our stay the apartment was our home: Frank was always ‘there’ but never imposed. We love you Frank!
Bill M. (USA – February 2019)
Best vacation ever. Fantastic host.
Frank made our stay so welcoming and helpful. We will come back again. The location is perfect and the views unbelievable. The house is filled with little amenities that anticipate your every need. Nearby restaurants like the Country Terrace are world class with extraordinary service.
Michael B. (USA – January 2019)
Our Gozo Retreat
Thank you Frank and your mother Salvina for sharing your beautiful rental home with us. The clean accommodations the multiple balconies, terraces and rooftop viewpoints with farmland and sea views were a bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the opportunity to be able to explore the island from our wonderful Ghajnsielem starting point which has a lot to see in itself. We love to walk and covered a several mile radius during our stay including the towns of Nadur, the beach trails to Qala and Xlendi and much more. The bus ride to Victoria and outer points was easy and a great inexpensive way to get around the island. Foremost we want to thank Frank not only for his shared vivid knowledge of his home island but his sagacious talent as an informative host. From your first message to your last Frank is probably one of the most informative hosts I’ve worked with in our travels. His detailed messages and his making your final transportation arrangements to and from, to a warm welcome to weary guests traveling from afar is top notch in my books leaving no worries about any details. Thank you Frank and Salvina for making our stay a memorable one in Gozo. Mike & Dee
David B. (UK – January 2019)
A lovely stay as usual. Our fourth time. This was our first in December and we were very lucky with the weather. “Bethlehem “ was spectacular and the sea lovely for swimming. Hondoq remains a favourite but the whole island of Gozo is delightful.
Thank you so much to both of you for your wonderful presence and words of appreciation. It is always a Great pleasure to see you back! We are very glad you really have had a fantastic stay and found our location, accommodation and hospitality services simply great! You are most welcome anytime! Many thanks from Frank at Mediterranea Seaviews Holidays On Gozo Island, Malta.
David B. (England – December 2018)
Our fourth consecutive stay
A lovely stay as usual: our first in December and we were lucky with the weather. ‘Bethlehem’ was spectacular and the sea lovely for swimming. Hondoq remains a favourite but the whole island of Gozo is delightful.
Kath H. (Wales – October/November 2018)
Thanks Frank for all the information and help before we arrived on Gozo and while here!! We’ve had a lovely holiday!!
Thank you for helping us so much on our holidays and giving us such a nice place to stay. Thank you also for being so kind. I really enjoyed my stay Gozo!
Janet N. (UK – October 2018)
Although our stay here was brief and we only met you a few days ago, we already feel like you’re an old friend! The apartment is wonderful, view outstanding and your hospitality second to none. With your help and advise we have seen more of the island of Gozo than we would have if left to our own devices, and your love and passion for Gozo and its people shone through in all our conversations.
Thank you for making our stay truly memorable and for the cake and wine to celebrate my 70th birthday – a birthday like no other have known. Wishing you health and happiness for the future!
Ian B. (UK – Second Stay in October 2018)
On hearing our flight was delayed I phoned Frank the owner telling him we would miss the 11.15 ferry from Malta to Gozo. “Don’t worry” came the reply, “Whatever time you arrive I will be waiting for you.” And he was. He drove us to the lovely Mediterranea Sea Views and as returning visitors wished us a good night and left us at the porch. On the message board was a notice saying “Ann and Ian welcome back home !” In the kitchen we found savoury ftiras and cheese pastries warmed in the oven. In the fridge along with other things was a chilled bottle of white wine. We sat out on the balcony and at 1.30 am not caring about the time we sipped our wine . It was warm and still. The lights of Malta shone in the distance and the cicadas chirruped gently in the fields opposite. Everything was perfect.
On the practical side Frank has tried to think of everything to make your stay comfortable. His traditional Gozitan home is equipped with everything you could need during your stay. It is wonderfully situated for the excellent restaurants of Mgarr Ghajnseilem and Qala and a bus to Victoria stops a few yards away from the front door. On top of all this Frank will be genuinely happy to help you with anything you need. For us the perfect holiday.
Daniel H. (Bremen, Germany – September 2018)
We spent two great weeks in your apartment with the three(!) terraces! We came because of the view – and it is really breath taking. But you are right: it’s just as important that a good caring person is there. And that’s you. Thank you for picking us from the ferry and welcoming us to the lovingly and deliciously laid table! Thank you for the good equipment of the apartment and the large water supplies that you have bought! Thank you for always being approachable for questions and problems! If we come back to Gozo, then it is definitely here!!!
Serena P. (Pisa, Italy – September 2018)
I viaggi migliori sono quelli che rimangono nel tuo cuore, sono le persone che conosci e che cosa possono dare. Frank era l’anima di questa festa, una persona accogliente e generosa, una persona con un cuore innamorato delle tradizioni e di questo posto. Sei riuscito a trasmettere tutto questo, il tuo modo di dirci le cose, di dire a quest’isola, di lasciarci senza parole. Non siamo stati in vacanza, siamo stati a CASA!
Grazie mille per tutto, e per averci fatto trovare la cena pronta, e l’eccellente pastizzi. Questa piccola casa è bellissima, curata in ogni dettaglio, calda e accogliente, ci mancherà! Ci mancherai anche a te Frank! Grazie a tua madre Salvina, ottimo cibo !!! E un pensiero, in questo giorno, a tuo padre!
The best trips are those that remain in your heart, are the people you know and what they can give. Frank was the soul of this holiday, a welcoming and generous person, a person with a heart in love with the traditions and this place. You managed to convey all this, your way of telling us things, telling this island, left us speechless. We have not been on vacation, we have been at HOME!
Thank you so much for everything, and for having made us find the dinner ready, and the excellent pastizzi. This house is beautiful, cared for in every detail, warm and welcoming, we will miss it! We’ll miss you too Frank! Thank your mum Salvina, great food !!! And a thought, on this day, to your father!
Tracey H.W. (Chesterfield, UK – September 2018)
Thank you Frank for being the perfect host. It has been a privilege to have stayed in this wonderful apartment. Thank you for organising the local taxi to and from the airport and the lovely supper when we arrived. Our holiday has been fantastic and we will definitely be staying at the apartment again. Thank you Frank.
Kindest regards Tracey and Paul
John L. (England – August 2018)
Wow!!! We’ve had such an amazing stay in Gozo, most specifically at Mediterranea Seaviews. Your home has provided us with everything we could possibly need… and more (baby equipment, beach gear, fans, hairdryer, washing machine, kitchen utensils… etc). We loved waking up to the beautiful views whilst having our morning brew on the terrace – a moment to remember. Thank you for your warm welcome, delicious meal on arrival and wealth of information about Gozo. We’re so sad to leave and hope to return one day.
We will definitely be recommending Mediterranea Seaviews to our friends and family.
Sara G. (UK – August 2018)
Wonderful time in a fantastic property!
We have spent 10 great days in Gozo and have wanted for nothing! Frank has provided everything you could possibly need. We have never stayed in such a well equipped holiday-let. His advice on what to do, where to go and how to get there was incredibly helpful and we were able to make the most of our time. Nothing was too much trouble and his passion for sharing the best of Gozo was evident in all communication with him. The restaurants in Ghajnsielem are great value and the food, both quality and quantity, is exceptional. However, when self catering we found that the supermarket and fish market provided all we needed. We enjoyed using the bikes to get to the shop or to ride down to the harbour for a quick swim and a drink. The snorkels and masks were used whenever we went to the beaches and we also took the vinegar in case of jellyfish stings. Fortunately we didn’t need it but it was reassuring to have just in case!
Frank’s advice about wind direction and where to go to make the most of weather conditions was also very useful. We hadn’t considered the difference that can make when visiting a small island.
We feel Frank should be considered a national treasure by the Gozitan tourist board!
We highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit Gozo.
Andreas Y. (Norway – July 2018)
We had a wonderful week staying here! Gozo has been a great experience thanks to Frank’s exceptional care and consideration for his guests. The apartment has everything you need for an island holiday, including bikes and snorkeling equipment. Frank was so helpful before and during our stay. From picking us up at the ferry, to helping us find the right buses and places to visit, staying here was an absolute joy.
Hannah K. (Hamburg, Germany – July 2018)
Everything was beyond perfect. Frank is an amazing host! You can ask him anything at any time and he’s always happy to help. I had expected a nice apartment and a friendly host after having read all the reviews and it was even more than that. With Frank’s tips and the bus stops so close to the apartment, exploring the island was super easy. The view from the terraces is awesome and I’m gonna miss sitting up there, drinking local wine and enjoying the scenery. The apartment was perfectly clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. There’s even a huge barbecue on one of the terraces! All the “small” details e.g. the different kinds of pillows that can be used, made the stay beyond great. We’ll surely be back. Thank you again Frank – you’re amazing!
Liselotte P. (Germany – June 2018)
Ein Traumurlaub…..ist leider vorbei, aber ich schaue voraus und freue mich auf einen neuen im nächsten Jahr….Frank ist ein überaus freundlicher und zuvorkommender Gastgeber..schon der wahnsinnig herzliche Empfang mit tollen Leckereien aus der Heimischen Kùche, dazu ein kühles Glas Wein war schon umwerfend…dazu die gemütliche Wohnung mit den Unbeschreiblichen 3 Terrassen und den traumhaften Ausblicken…..fast zu schõn um wahr zu sein…. Ich fand alles schöner vor als erwartet, denn ich würde bisher meist eher enttäuscht…ich habe jetzt meine Traumwohnung auf Gozo gefunden …..und werde ihr, wenn es terminlich klappt ,treu bleiben… Und freue mich auf den nächsten Urlaub bei Frank
A dream holiday ….. is unfortunately over, but I look ahead and look forward to a new next year …. Frank is a very friendly and courteous host .. the very hearty welcome with great treats from the local cuisine, to a cool glass of wine was stunning … to the cozy apartment with the indescribable 3 terraces and the fantastic views ….. almost too good to be true …. I thought everything was better than expected, becauseI would usually rather disappointed … I have now found my dream home on Gozo ….. and I will remain, if it works in time, remain faithful … And I look forward to the next holiday with Frank
Julia T. (UK – June 2018)
From the first email we received after booking, right up until we returned home, Frank’s hospitality and communication were outstanding. We have stayed in over 50 Air B&Bs as part of our two year round the world trip – and by far Frank is one of the more helpful, and thoughtful hosts who gave us so much information, made sure we had everything we needed.. The apartment is gorgeous and so well equipped – everything you can think of – Frank has thought of too. We only packed hand luggage for a week as all towels, dressing gowns, hair dryer, snorkels , beach umbrellas, bikes , shopping bags etc has all been thought of! Frank picked us up from the ferry after working out all our timings for the bus/ferry before we arrived. He welcomed us with wine, and pastizzis -took us to Lidl and gave us a tour of the local area before spending time giving us all local knowledge of things to do, see and where to eat on Gozo. Both balconies are brilliant to relax on, we loved walking to the local restaurants and Frank made us feel so welcome. We would highly recommend Franks apartments for a trip to Gozo!
Renate B. (Austria – June 2018)
Already at home, our vacation began because you have already provided us with useful information at this time. But most of all we really enjoyed your care at the Mediterranea Seaviews, which was unparalleled and the best we had so far.
Thanks to your excellent tips, we were able to get to know Gozo island very relaxed, even places that are not in the travel guides. You made the stay a relaxing experience with unforgettable memories of Gozo. Many thanks.
Vicki K. (UK – June 2018 for their second consecutive stay)
Once again Frank you have not disappointed us. From meeting us off the ferry with your wonderful happy smile and the food and wine you have generously left for us. You certainly made us feel like it was our home for the 5 days we stayed in the penthouse apartment.
We cannot think of anything that could have improved our stay simply wonderful. Here’s to the next visit to this wonderful island.
Glynn R. (UK – June 2018)
It is with a heavy heart I write this message as tonight is our last night at your wonderful Gozo home from home. We have enjoyed every minute of our stay at your fabulous penthouse apartment which is superbly equipped for all our needs. Your hospitality is exceptional and although we have stayed in this beautiful town before, you have been able to enlighten us with all your local knowledge. Thank you also for booking such glorious weather – much appreciated!!
I have enjoyed making use of your cycles even though Louise on her one excursion ended up with ‘jelly legs’!! Everything from booking with you to meeting you finally then experiencing your accommodation has been a fabulous experience.
All our love, Glynn and Louise, till the next time. Cheers
Emily T. (England – May 2018)
Frank is a great host – very willing to help and offer local information but not intrusive in any way. The amenities in the house are great – especially enjoyed the use of the bikes to explore Gozo. Would thoroughly recommend.
Billy W. (UK – May 2018)
We have had a wonderful and memorable stay at Mediterranea Seaviews. Gozo has provided us a very special holiday. Of course this is largely down to you for making us so welcome from the minute we booked to the end of the stay. You really go the extra mile for your guests and it is truly appreciated because it takes away all the stresses of being in a strange location and not knowing even where to buy food. There is no substitution for local knowledge as you are a credit to the Maltese tourism industry. We will remember Gozo for a long time but we know where you live! Thanks for everything.
Pauline Y. (California, USA – April/May 2018)
Your kindness and hospitality extended to us was wonderful and much appreciated. You went beyond being a host by taking us to the grocery store and transportation when needed. You went out of your way when we needed medical assistance and driving to Victoria when we could not find what we needed in Gozo. We really appreciated you spending time with us by going over places of interest, bus routes and many other places to visit. Your beautiful villa was so comfortable and spacious and we felt right at home. Thank you for everything.
Frederike T. (North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany – April 2018)
Heike W. (Berlin, Germany – April 2018)
Wir hatten 4 wunderbar entspannte Tage in diesem toll ausgestatteten Haus. Frank ist ein sehr umsichtiger Gastgeber und hat alles Erdenkliche getan, um unseren Aufenthalt auf Gozo von der Anreise, über den Aufenthalt bis zur Abreise zu einem schönen Erlebnis werden zu lassen. Thank you very much again Frank for your kindness, hospitality, caring attitude and perfect organisation in every way. If we came back to Gozo, we would definatley come back to this well located lovely place that offers the the perfect balcony/terrasse for every time of the day and the perfect equipment for a great stay as well as an entire programme of tips which places to visit.

We had 4 wonderfully relaxing days in this well equipped house. Frank is a very prudent host and has done everything in his power to make our stay on Gozo a pleasant one, from arrival, through to departure.
Sandra C. (New York, USA – March 2018)
Frank’s place is clean, cozy, has everything you need and then some. The front terrace has a great view and is a lovely place to start and end your day. Ask Frank about the guide for the great coastal hikes which were a highlight of my stay. And he offers local tips re:shopping from the vendors who pass by or are a few minutes walk away. Upon his recommendation, I had a delicious meal at Country Terrace too.

Sally S. (New York, USA – March 2018)
We had such a wonderful stay at Frank’s place in Gozo! The views from the (three!!) private terraces in the apt were extraordinary and it was so peaceful looking out at the sea morning and night. The location of the apartment is also excellent – walking to some very good restaurants and easy access to the rest of the island. Frank was an amazing host – welcoming us with wine and fresh veggies as well as a sweet note for our anniversary. If ever back in Gozo (and I hope we will!) we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks again for everything!
James C. (England – February/March 2018)
This was an amazing break away for us! Frank was an exceptional host with a great eye for detail. Not only was the apartment in great condition but the views from all the terraces were second to none! Frank was very welcoming and really made our holiday one to remember. Frank took the time to detail all of the transport routes, restaurants, walks, water sports locations and even brought us cooking ingredients one evening!! We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone that is looking for either a relaxing break away or for the water sports lovers! Thanks again Frank, we will certainly look to return.
Jamie D. (USA – February 2018)
Wow! We just left Frank’s property and are sad to see it and Gozo fade in the distance. The property is immaculately clean and so comfortable. It is fully outfitted, Frank has thought of everything! It is so close to the bus stop which connects you to the rest of the island and the views are magical. Although the property is five star it would be just another amazing place without the hospitality of Frank. From the moment he picked us up at the boat he made sure to point out anything we needed to know he walked through the property with us and went through all the systems and all spaces, he drove us to the grocery store for the first time, and he spent time showing us how the buses worked and their schedules and pointed out walks and places of interest on the map which was so helpful later when we started using his tips. The whole experience from start to finish was way above expectations. We can’t thank you enough Frank! We can’t recommend this rental enough. If you have a chance to go to Gozo, stay here, as much for the wonderful accommodation and also as a chance to meet Frank. Jamie & Bob Dickinson
Richard R. (England – January 2018)
This was our 2nd time and as with the first time Frank’s was there to meet us at the ferry terminal and lunch was waiting for us, which was very welcome. Frank is extremely helpful and on call at all times.Nothing was too much trouble.His mother made us vegetable soup which was delicious. Would recommend this to anyone.
Helen B. (UK – Dec 2017 / Jan 2018)
From the moment of booking Frank ensured we were fully informed and readily responded to any queries we had. Franks tips and advice allowed us to fully appreciate Gozo and make the most of our stay. We stayed as 2 couples and there was plenty of space and felt very at home in the Mediterranean Sea views. The location was excellent, with varied bars and restaurants within walking distance. To explore the rest of Gozo, which is a beautiful island, we walked the coastal paths and used the frequent bus services to get us home. A great time was had by all
Tips for other travellers
For fine dining we would recommend Tmun restaurant. If you like pizza our favourite was from the bar in Qala, about a 15 mintue walk, with beautiful views from the balcony.
We walked the coastal path from Mgarr to Xlendi, a lovely walk and well worth it as this was our favourite resort/cove of the week.
The buses are very handy and easy to use.
Jochen S. (Berlin, Germany – December 2017)
You’ve had every kind of facilities: mountain-bikes, “hollywood swing”, gitarre, modern BBQ grill and a complete kitchen staff, bus-stop in front of the house (2 lines), an amazing view over the the channel/Comino. And Frank is always a helpful manager, if you had any questions about …
Barbara M. (Ireland – November 2017)
Best ever holiday rental
This is our second stay at Mediterranea Seaviews and, I hope, not our last. We have spent a week here and felt completely at home, as we did on our first visit last year. Frank is a superb host and goes above and beyond what is expected of an owner of a rental property. He is an expert on his beloved island, and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you Frank, and also thank you to your lovely mum for her rice, soup and salad. We hope to see you both again.
Cathy W. (England – October 2017)
Swimming in the clear blue sea at Ramla Bay. The views as we walked from the Mgarr Harbour along the cliffs to Hondoq Bay. The amazing views from the Citadel at Victoria. Eating out on the terrace at Ghajnsielem opposite the floodlit church.
The Gozo bus service is so efficient and cheap. Our host Frank gave us a very
useful run-down of the various routes and what we could see. If your knees can’t cope with walking down to the harbour and back for dinner then eat in Ghansielem. It’s cheaper too!
Hopefully the fact that we ate out in the local restaurants and frequented the cafes benefited the local economy. Also, we remembered to put our recycling out as requested.
Excellent. The apartment was very comfortable with the best mattress I have ever
slept on! There was plenty to see and do, and the local food was delicious. The service provided by Frank to get us from the airport to Gozo was very well organised. He told us that if there was anything we need we only had to ask.
Rob L. (UK – October 2017)
Many thanks to Frank Tabone for a wonderful, relaxing stay in Gozo. He really made us feel welcome, even before we arrived with all the info he sent. We really could not believe the effort he went to to help us get to know Gozo and settle in the apartment. Picking us up from the ferry, the tour of the apartment (saving the best view until last!), the wonderful surprise snack with local wine and his comprehensive overview of the island’s attractions and buses to get there! Thank you to Frank! We absolutely love the balcony with harbour views. If only we could take it home with us. We’ll just have to go back I suppose! Thanks again.
Alex S. (London, England – October 2017)
Our Second Stay at Mediterranea Seaviews
Thanks so much for your hospitality, although the sun didn’t shine we had a fabulously relaxing stay in your comfortable home, which has everything you could possibly need. Will definitely be back and already looking forward to seeing more of this special island.
Jillian & Parry A. (Australia – September 2017)
We have been on the holiday road for 3 weeks: Geneva, Monelupol, Lucca, Florence and Valletta and we come to Gozo. Both my wife and I felt very humble when we entered Frank’s lovely, spacious home. We both felt at home right away… relaxing immediately. Your welcome, your time you took to explain and show your house to us, your local knowledge and experiences were very much appreciated. All we did was to go and get the experience. Everything needed was in the house and or near by. You are a gracious host who ensured we had everything at our finger tips and this gave us choices. We both thoroughly enjoyed the home delivered bakery and the home delivered fresh fruit and vegetable van. I recall in my youth the paper delivered in the morning and the milk man delivering fresh milk.
We had a 4 day stay-over so we did what we could with out feeling pushing or harassing ourselves. We took our time taking on board the ideas Frank had given us. There is so much to do and give yourself the time to enjoy yourself.
Frank’s advice was taken up earnestly by my wife and I. We bought fresh fruit and vegetables and bread from the home delivery people, we went to the restaurants, into the supermarkets, walked 4 km around the coastline, walked through the village of Qala and spent 4 hours in Rabat (Victoria) and used the local buses services. Most of all thoroughly enjoyed heaps of gelato ice-cream.
Superb and very energising and peaceful. Thanks very much Frank – You are a great host.
Sylvie D. (La Douze, France – September 2017)
Notre séjour chez Frank s’est très bien passé.Frank est très organisé, il transmet, avant le voyage, une documentation avec de nombreux conseils pratiques et il organise un accueil soigné (il est venu nous chercher au ferry et il avait prévu une collation avec une bouteille de vin blanc). La maison est située dans une rue centrale, à proximité d’un arrêt de bus. Nous avons, plusieurs fois utilisé les vélos mis à disposition (prévoir un éclairage à fixer sur les vélos si vous prévoyez les utiliser la nuit). Frank habite à proximité, il est donc très disponible, et réactif, pour répondre à toutes les demandes. Nous avons aussi apprécié notre logement, confortable, avec la possibilité d’utiliser des terrasses.
Our stay at Frank was very good.Frank is very organized, he transmits, before the trip, a documentation with many practical tips and he organizes a neat reception (he picked us up at the ferry and he had planned a snack with a bottle of white wine). The house is located in a central street, close to a bus stop. We have, several times used the bicycles available (provide lighting to fix the bikes if you plan to use them at night). Frank lives nearby, so he is very available, and responsive, to answer all requests. We also enjoyed our accommodation, comfortable, with the possibility of using terraces.
Claude O. (Quebec City, Canada – September 2017)
Dear Frank Grazzi grazz grazzi to make us feel at home. Mediterranea Seaviews is THE best place we couldn’t have found on Gozo island for our vacation. It’s hard to express in words all what that represents. Anybody’s got to live it, to experience it. At first, what to say about you Frank… you’re a very caring host. As we told you, if we could clone you, we would do so!!! You were so friendly, very helpful and caring about us… always prompt to answer emails… to help about anything and totally available by the time of our arrival… giving us a lift from the ferry to the apartment… helping us about how to organise our visit in Gozo… even giving a lift for the first grocery and making a tour of the area to give us a very good feel of the village nearby. About the apartment… the view is great if not awesome… so as the location… very well served by bus to go everywhere on the island. Bikes were very appreciated and useful to make some grocery shopping. Kitchen is very well equipped and both doors in front and back allow the apartment to be fully ventilated by fresh air. We couldn’t have asked for a better place and a better host. Merci beaucoup.
Rachelle A. (Haz-Zebbug, Malta – August 2017)
One of the best accommodations we could ever find. Frank is a polite and very helpful host. The place is clean, full of the necessary amenities and equipped with modern equipment. Since we went there for the feast, it was in a perfect location for us to travel by foot. We will surely book again for next year!
Tim C. (California, USA – August 2017)
Frank is a wonderful host and goes the extra mile to not alone make you feel really welcome but also sets you up with local knowledge so that you can stay on Gozo like a local and break through the tourist barrier to have a really authentic experience. The apartment is really set up well with everything you need and more and the location is great with good restaurants within an easy walk. I highly recommend this place.
Martin S. (Nurnberg, Germany – August 2017)
Ryan B. (UK – August 2017)
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Mediterranea Seaviews! Everything was perfect and we couldn’t have hoped for a better host in Frank. We felt like the best informed tourists in Gozo having been provided with so many hints and tips on where to go, as well as really detailed bus plans. This is definitely the best stocked apartment we’ve ever stayed in, from beach towels to snorkelling equipment to kitchen amenities, we had everything we needed. We also really appreciated the water – it was great being able to buy it from the bottom of the stairs rather than lugging it back from the supermarket. The welcome was great – including a delicious meal with wine – and Frank was always on hand for anything we could possibly need, even helping us organise a taxi for our departure at the last minute. The only disappointment was that our stay couldn’t have been longer!! Thank you for everything Frank!
Kathryn S. (USA – July 2017)
Dear Frank (our very good friend after only 6 days),
After all of your excellent detailed emails we didn’t know how you could match that in person! Well, you far exceeded all of our hopes! You are by far (and we mean by far) the “Host with the Most”! Kat and I talked about what made our visit special to Gozo (the water, the sights, your house, etc.) But it all came back to your Hospitality. You were not just “host nice” – You are “ Friend Nice”! You did for us what we do for good friends who visit us at home. That type of kindness is something you don’t see much in today’s world! From the ‘car service’ to the market tours and visits to the sightseeing, you were always there to help us out! We love you attention to detail (being teachers)! Please don’t change anything – We love your place and the way you treat folks! As you said to us, going to visit a new place and immerse yourself in the culture and people is like reading a great book – Well in your case here at Mediterranea Seaviews with you as the ambassador of Gozo it was a “Best Seller” #1 Book of our Travels.
Vicki K. (UK – June 2017)
Well Frank absolutely marvellous from beginning until end. Your attention to detail from the time of booking to departure was second to none. We have never stayed anywhere, where the hospitality has been so good. It became more like our own home than our holiday home. From the cleanliness, information on buses and walks around the island. A nice local meal having been prepared on our arrival and a personal guided tour to a wonderful bakery Ta’ Saminu, fish market, local brewery and then onto Mgarr ix Xini. Thank you Frank. Also a big thank you to your mum Salvina for the salad and the lovely rabbit stew delicious. The only negative point our stay wasn’t long enough. A very Big thanks Frank. Hope to see you again next year.
Paul B. (Australia – June 2017)
The best host ever! Our host Frank must be the most congenial host ever!! Everything to make our stay a success was provided from the time we made the booking to the time Frank dropped us back at the ferry terminal. It was all wonderful. Gozo has so much to offer and we wish we had spent more time there. The free use of bikes was an unexpected bonus. Thank you so much Frank.
Vinzenz T. (Vienna, Austria – June 2017)
From the beginning on Frank provides information about Gozo and the house. The house itself is very clean, absolutely above classic European standard for a holiday apartment and furthermore the interior is lovingly decorated. It was a pleasure spending four days at Mediterranea Seaviews – definitely recommendable!
Ian B. (UK – April 2017)
It was staying in the accommodation. Last year we visited Gozo and stayed at a hotel. We liked the island so much we wanted to return but we knew we had to find self catering to really experience Gozo. Seaviews is so comfortable and with its traditional design it is the perfect place to stay and experience the real Gozo. Our host was genuinely warm and welcoming offering help and advice whenever we need ed it. On the penultimate day Frank, our host. took us around much of the island of Gozo. We visited beautiful churches, local shops and crafts studios and stopped at spots where we could view the magnificent scenery. It was a wonderful finale to our holiday.
My tips to other travellers are to use the buses to see the island, to meet the people of Gozo and to experience the real Gozo. Bus travel is easy, it is cheap and it is run on modern, clean vehicles as a real service for the benefit of passengers. It is a beautiful island but it is the people who make Gozo. Also ask Frank! He isn’t just saying it when he tells you to ask. He wants to help. Use his wonderful message pin board on the exterior of the house. Frank will check the messages twice a day and answer any queries. Don’t worry he is not intrusive at all and totally respects your privacy.
Frank the owner is very environmentally aware and active in the local community. He operates a full recycling policy in his property.Staying at the house we also felt we were benefiting the local economy and the local people by using the local shops, the bus service and even the local restaurants.
This was a fantastic holiday. Our host so friendly so welcoming and so helpful, yet he never intruded. The house was perfect for us It is extremely comfortable, perfectly equipped with beautiful views from its balconies on both sides. It is ideally positioned to explore the island.
But Mediterranea Seaviews is more than the sum of its parts. If you are like me, the house, Frank, the owner, the island of Gozo and its people will get under your skin. You will want to return. We certainly will.
Paul Z. (Melbourne, Australia – April 2017)
Our host Frank made us feel welcome and comfortable from the moment we arrived. The accomodation was well located to explore Gozo and the surrounding towns.
Frank was a wealth of knowledge on local attractions and places to eat which was valuable to us. It ensured we made the most of our 3 day stay in Gozo.
The house was very comfortable and had everything a family needed. It was a home away from home for us.
Christian S. (Berlin, Germany – March 2017)
Thank you for this amazing time we had on Gozo. You provided us with all we wished for and more.
Because of you, we got to see a side of Gozo we wouldn’t have been able to find on our own. You explained everything to us, from the bus system to the rich history of this island. Even though we missed the opportunity to see the Azure Window by eight hours, we were still astounded by the nature surrounding us. The locals were always friendly and willing to help.
During our stay, the most memorable trip we made was a coastal walk from Xlendi. Even though it was very windy, we loved the beautiful view we had standing on the cliffs.
You were an exceptional host that takes care of even the smallest needs. Not only did Frank provide us with enough information to explore Gozo on our own, but he also personally took us on tour around the island – even showing us the oldest bakery in Gozo.
Thank you for everything!
Shelly H. (Delta, Canada – March 2017)
Dear Frank, We had a fantastic stay here in Gozo! You were an amazing host. You provided so much useful information from the time we booked and when we arrived. It made it easy for us to enjoy our three days here. We really appreciate the time you took to pick us up from the ferry and provide us lunch. Your apartment is lovely, in a great location and the views of Comino and Malta are lovely! We loved riding the bikes that you provided. Biking was a great way to see the island! I would highly recommend that my friends stay here if they visit Gozo. Your hospitality is the best we have experienced. Thank you!
Ceri G. (England – February 2017)
Welcoming, warm, winter walking holiday!
We had a great time discovering Gozo. We enjoyed walking the coastal path with two kids (9 & 6), there’s loads of interesting history, some beautiful scenery and the island is small enough and quiet enough to walk between towns (or you can take the regular buses). No car needed! Supermarket, restaurants, beach & boats are also close by. On our last day, we were already talking about what we wanted do the next time we come. This apartment feels like a cross between a countryside/seaside apartment and a guesthouse. You get the independence and self catering amenities of an apartment (in fact anything you might need is provided – plug adapters, hair dryer, snorkels, washing & drying machine, bikes, baby high chair – the list goes on). But Frank was also on hand to help at any point – with maps, bus routes, recommendations, bookings & advice. This meant we got the most of our time in Gozo and we got to see a bit of local life. Frank also booked the connecting taxis from Valletta and to & from the airport for me, took us to the supermarket in his car to stock up on shopping on the first day and delivered our breakfast pastries – making it an easy (stress free) family escape. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to visit Gozo and stay again. Lots of thanks!
Klaus Z. (Germany – January 2017)
Dear Frank, We don’t know what we should write, which has not been written. Only we want to say: All this is really true. Nowhere else we have found such a warm and great hospitality. Your organisation and your briefing was perfect. All your recommendations of places to visit or for eating were always fantastic. The house is well situated for all the things to do on Gozo. We love the terraces with its breathless views. The whole house is fully equipped and we had missed nothing. Thanks to the wood, also the cold nights were warm and cosy. Thanks also the great local experience with the best guide from the island and the ftiras on your favourite (private) bench! We had an unforgettable time at Gozo and Mediterranea Seaviews. Thank you for all! We like to come back to explore the beautiful island further, of course at this place. With the best wishes for you and your mother, Anja and Klaus.
Jochen S. (Berlin, Germany – December 2016)
It has been a wonderful time to stay at Mediterranea Seaviews. We will never forget the 2 great terraces (one for breakfast, the other for dinner or BBQ) plus the amazing roof-terrasse for relaxing! – Thank you for your hospitality and kindness Salvina and you have given us. I come often on holidays on Gozo, to Mediterranea Seaviews. And with the help, full support of both of you we always see another part of the Gozitan people and of Gozo. John
Anne-Dominique F. (Brussels, Belgium – December 2016)
Dear Frank, We had a great stay in your house in Gozo. Unfortunately too short to appreciate the beauty of the island and the equipment of the flat: loudspeakers, bikes, beach equipment – that is great! We appreciated the bottle of wine and local snack you prepared for our welcome! In the mornings it is great to climb on top of the roof to enjoy the splendid views of the sea and of the environments. Thank you for offering us to help us in case of any problems or wish. Hopefully we will see you again!
Barbara M. (Ireland – November 2016)
Everything was as described and arrangements were smooth and friendly from the outset. When Frank says “nothing is too much trouble”, he really means it. The accommodation does not feel like a holiday home but it is as if somebody lives there and has just exchanged homes. I couldn’t recommend Frank’s house highly enough. He certainly goes the extra mile.
David B. (England – October 2016)
Our Third Visit to Mediterranea Seaviews Gozo! Thank you so much for your help and friendship and making our week another special holiday. Your hospitality is legendary and Mediterrannea Seaviews is a wonderfully comfortable place to stay and a very difficult one to leave. Whiling away our time on the sun terraces both day and night and absorbing the peaceful sounds and stunning views are almost unique and give us both so much pleasure.
For our third visit we continue to be amazed at the character of Gozo with its unique architecture, countryside, coastline and friendly people. At the end of each day, returning to Mediterrannea is absolutely wonderful and we would highly recommend the whole experience to anyone.
Thank you Frank and we look forward to returning next year.
Our best wishes
David and Lesley
Katrin H. (Dresden, Germany – October 2016)
Thank you for all. You are really kind. Your hosting is really nice and Gozo is a beautiful island.
Thanks for all the information and the wonderful visit tour in the food factory. The visit in the bakery was the highlight for our kids. It tastes very good. We are not able to see all you have advised us. That’s one of the reasons we will visit you again in 2 years. Thanks a lot!
Pernille (Wiesbaden, Germany – September 2016)
Frank is the most perfect host. Lots of information prior to travel, meets you off the boat and offers to answer any queries daily. The house is really well equipped- in the kitchen, with information on the island and with beach/snorkelling equipment. The beds are the most comfortable we have used away from home. Gozo is the most beautiful island and we loved our week there. Thank you Frank!
William M. (USA – September 2016)
Beautiful building with large apt. very well stocked with expansive views from its many balconies. Close to bus stops and ferry so you don’t need a car, but if you have one as we did, there is ample free parking right at the door. Parking never a problem.
The owner, Frank, is very friendly and hospitable and available to help with any questions, problems, or anything else you might need.
This is a beautiful, well maintained apt in a great location. You won’t be sorry you stayed here.
Graham R. (Birmingham, UK – August 2016)
From the outset, with the dedicated emails, it was obvious that great care and attention has been taken to ensure all guests have a comfortable stay. We loved the small touches, the local coffee beans, the water available without having to go to the supermarket, the snorkel sets individually sized, etc, etc. Thank you Frank for your consideration particularly for taking me to the pharmacy when my son was ill.
Jacquelyn B. (Florida, USA – August 2016)
Frank was a warm and welcoming host! The house was beautiful, in an excellent location, and provided everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Frank also provided incredibly helpful information about getting around Gozo and all of the beautiful sights. We could tell he genuinely wanted our stay to be exceptional.
Antje W. (Berlin, Germany – August 2016)
The owner, Frank, is a warm host, that tries to make your stay really a pleasure. he is very attentive and tries to give all kind of insights into the island. His mum prepared even a welcome package as i was arriving on Sunday. I could not imagine a better hosts, and the house is really beautiful! Thanks for the incredible experience!
Monica W. (Edinburgh, Scotland – February 2016)
I met Frank when my husband and I recently stayed in his excellently located house on the outskirt of the village where the ferry comes in to Gozo. Frank is an outstanding host who has thought of everything a visitor might need to feel at home and he is keen to know what you are interested in so that he can direct you to those local secrets. When we weren’t exploring on the bicycles provided with his stop offs to make those journeys ideal, we were walking amongst the wild flowers taking in the scenery or lounging on his terrace eating fresh produce from the mobile grocer who stops outside the house. The house is very private and comfortable with wonderful views over the fields towards the sea. It has all the reference material on the places of interest on the island that you might wish for and really anything you might want a timetable on etc. I particularly enjoyed the reference book on the flora and fauna and the walking books. Frank is a warm man who loves his island and wants to genuinely share all that is best about it with you in an extremely thoughtful manner and will help you out with any query. We really enjoyed his company and his home and hope to return one day.
Robert E. (New York, USA – February 2016)
Mediterannea Seaviews is by far our favorite holiday home in Malta (we have stayed at two other locations in Malta and Gozo) and we would love to return some day. The house is quite large, with pleasant living areas inside and out and with every convenience one might desire on holiday. We especially enjoyed the five outdoor living areas as there was always one with the perfect amount of sun, shade or breeze and delightful views. We were a party of four and had plenty of room to spread out, enjoy time together, as well as have separate living areas for privacy. Frank, our host, made us feel welcome from the start and was gracious and accommodating with special requests. He gave us information on lovely walks and provided a current set of bus schedules to direct us all over Gozo. He also took us on a tour that included local traditional foods and history of the islands. Our Ftira lunch, hot from the bakery oven, enjoyed picnic style with views of all the islands will be a treasured memory.
Ole Andreas B. (The Netherlands – March 2016)
Thank you for taking so good care of us during our stay in Gozo. We really enjoyed your beautiful island. The food here was lovely, and the ftira directly from he baker’s oven was one of the highlights. The apartment had everything we needed and was enormous. If we ever come back to Gozo we will definitely stay here again!
Gordon T. (England – March 2016)
So much has been said about Frank that I can add little more. He was supremely attentive and solicitous; over and above. Indeed, he seemed a little disappointed if his services were not required! Being very independent by nature we liked to sort things out for ourselves. Never-the less; it was a GREAT comfort to know he was there. He was the epitome of courtesy and good nature. As for Gozo – it swept us off our feet and we managed to ‘cover’ most of the Island during our 10 day stay. Packed with history, charm and stunning scenery. The highlight was possibly the trip to Comino Island- wow! We had a wonderful day there! The Citadel, The Ggantija Temples, The Rotunda at Xewkija and so much more; there was so much to do and see. The buses were always very punctual and very reasonable. The local supermarket was very good and easily met all our needs. The weather was almost perfect, apart from the last day or so when very high winds made it a little hard going – but it didn’t spoil anything! The home is SO well equipped – Frank has thought of EVERYTHING! A real bonus was David the Baker each morning – fabulous and amazing value. I won’t go on – this was a great holiday, in a lovely home ideally situated. Highly recommended and would do it again without a moments thought! Thank you Gozo and thank you Frank for your kindness and generosity.
Jay K. (UK – April 2016)
We had a fantastic holiday in Gozo in Mediterranea Seaviews. The house was fantastic and had everything we would need for a beach holiday and more. The views were beautiful from the terraces and attention to detail was very good. Frank, you had been a fantastic host and had been kind enough to be at service anytime we need right from the start of booking to late pickup from the ferry. The local personalised Gozo tour was something memorable. Your recommendations were best just like you. Your mama’s pasta, sandwiches and dishes were great, felt at home. We would love to come and visit again and definitely recommend to our family and friends looking for a great family time.
Arthur M. (Luxembourg City, Luxembourg – April 2016)
Dear Frank, Thank you so much for your kind, considerate, generous hospitality. We felt very much at home and very spoiled by yours and your mother’s kind attention. We particularly enjoyed the fantastic views and the wonderful walks. Għajnsielem is basically in the middle of three spectacular villages and if you are into country walks, staying there is a must. Public transport is only a few meters away from the house and we truly appreciated Frank’s generosity of meeting us at the harbour and taking us to the place. We only had a dud day weather-wise, which was quite windy and light showers. However, Frank’s place is so equipped that we did not mind staying indoors. There are numerous books you can choose from, Cable TV and a DVD. The kitchen is very well kept with all sorts of appliances, pots and pans you could find at ones own kitchen. However, with the weather as it is on the Maltese islands, by evening the sun was out and there is nothing like relaxing and sipping a nice glass of wine taking in the views on the terrace(s). We would definitely stay there again if we ever go back to Gozo.
Steven B. (Leeds, England – April 2016)
This is now our third visit to Gozo and from Dwejra to Hondoq and everywhere in between, the island offers something for everyone! We have been lucky enough to see and have so many different experiences it’s difficult to mention everything and we still didn’t manage to do all that we wanted to! As for Mediterranea Seaviews, it is our second stay with Frank with a four year gap. The service, support and advice that is offered is always consistent and helpful. It is like staying with an old friend who always wants the best experience for you and this creates lots of memories that we all can treasure! Mediterranea Seaviews self catering with sea views is great for families – it’s very spacious inside and outside with three seaview terraces and two country view balconies. Plus that, if you are travelling by car in Gozo, parking your hired car is no worries in front of the accommodation. There is plenty of free parking just in front Mediterranea Seaviews. Frank’s hospitality didn’t stop there. He even showed us some hidden gems with great views during his free local tour – some really Great places to see and very tasty, locally fresh food indeed which definitely we wouldn’t have found by ourselves! Thanks so much and look forward to seeing you next time.

We found this to be a superbly equipped holiday let. We like to cook all our meals when away so this house was perfect for us with a great choice of terraces for each meal. The information provided was a great resource and helped us plan a series of coastal walks which gave us a lovely experience of Gozo and its wildlife in Spring. We would thoroughly recommend this and is a testament to the huge amount of work Frank has put into the property for a really enjoyable holiday.
Angelica D. (Galway, Ireland – May 2016)
This was the most relaxing holiday I’ve ever been on! We loved every minute. Frank really made everything as easy as possible. It was like staying with a long-lost relative. This house is gorgeous, like staying in a luxury villa; big bathtub, 3 terraces and 2 balconies, huge kitchen, new mattresses, choice of perfect pillows, use of computer, wifi, and loads of room to spread out. The kitchen is fully stocked and we cooked every night! He has maps, guide books, directions, information on walks, cycles, history, sightseeing, driving, busing… In the house there is also everything you need for your holiday: beach towels, floats, umbrellas (beach and regular variety), bikes, helmets, vinegar for jellyfish stings (didn’t need it!). We’ll be back and we’ll be telling everyone to get their butts to Gozo and see Frank, he will take good care of you! THINGS I DID NOT WORRY ABOUT ON MY GOZO HOLIDAY: how/where to get to the ferry – how to get to Mediterranea Seaviews – where to rent a car – best places for sightseeing – best places for swimming – where to eat – where to shop – how to eat – how to wash my clothes – where to get a beach umbrella – how to get to/back from town – who sells freshest produce – when to get the ferry back in time for my flight – how to check my email – where to get a bicycle – what is good at the bakery. WHAT I DID HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT: which balcony will be best for getting sun, relaxing, and having a glass of wine.

Dearest Frank, thanks a lot for your unforgettable friendliness, hospitality and your great help during our wonderful holiday on beautiful Gozo. From the beginning to the end, everything was perfect! Gozo is incredibly beautiful: the coastal walks are fantastic, the bike rides great fun and the swimming very refreshing! We were welcomed with delicious sandwiches, you had done the shopping for us and gave us all the information and resources to explore Gozo! Staying in Mediterranea Seaviews makes you feel completely happy and very grateful! As everything is so well organised, you’ve got all the time to just relax and have fun together! Thanks very much for your lovely pastries. Frank we give you a 11 out of 10! Max

It was great and the service is excellent!!! Frank was really a very good host! Thanks! The rooms are wunderful and we had a great time with our family. We hope, that we will come back soon!
David O. (England – May 2016)
Thank you for such a wonderful holiday experience. Your kind and thoughtful hospitality is totally unique and overwhelming. Never have we experienced such a personal and considerate service as you provide.
One of our main highlights of our Gozo experience was the day you gave us a tour of the local area to help us get a better feel for the local way. The bakery was a fantastic experience as we learned first hand the traditional way of bread making and how the locals buy their bread. And of course it was ‘delicious’.
This was our second holiday in Gozo and Mediterranea Seaviews and we enjoyed it as much as the first. Frank you should be proud of the service you provide as it’s above and beyond.

If your anything like us, you will be scanning this site for the perfect Gozo holiday home! You need not look any further. No seriously…. don’t bother this apartment is awesome…
Let’s start with Frank. (The apartment owner). The customer service from this man is out of this world. Normally when you turn up to a holiday you expect to be welcomed, given the keys and maybe the opportunity to ask for a few bits of advice.
Frank, out of our own choice, became a key part of the whole holiday. If we were stuck without transport… he took us.. if we needed food.. he also needed to go shopping… If we fancied snorkelling… He came along swimming!! Frank knows all the best places to eat, he knows where there are going to be jellyfish (where to swim) and he knows all the locals. This local knowledge has now become indispensable to us.
Towards the end of the week I picked up a severe ear infection (my brothers were fine!) due to all the snorkelling and swimming over the week. Frank, in this emergency situation, acted as an Ambulance the whole of the two days helping me recover and arranging transport to and from hospital. It would have been a nightmare without him.
The property is in top shape. 5 verandas, wifi, satellite tv, view of the blue lagoon. No bones here at all. It was just brilliant.
I’m sure a few of you will be thinking… Not sure if I want someone I have never met so involved with my holiday. Whilst i’m sure he would step back if asked, my advice is embrace Frank, get stuck in and I guarantee you will not regret it one bit! You won’t miss out on anything if you keep him in the loop. This is a holiday like no other I have ever had.
At this point, I normally write about all the things that weren’t up to scratch. However I-
A) Genuinely can’t think of a negative worth publishing.
B) I would feel like i’d stabbed a dear friend in the back if I published any irrelevant rubbish on here.
We will be looking to return in the future and enjoying the crystal clear waters surrounding the island.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We have so much love for Frank and his mum!
Alexander (Malta – June 2016)
We have visited Frank’s apartment in Gozo as we had a family wedding in the same day and basically stayed there for just a few hours. Nevertheless Frank made sure we got all we needed as though we were staying a whole week. He prepared some welcome food and the kitchen was full equipped for all cooking needs. The apartment was very clean and very well furnished. We are actually thinking of spending a few nights at Frank’s apartment later this year as it has a balcony with fantastic sea views where you can admire the scenery with a nice glass if wine and a cool breeze. As locals abd also Airbnb hosts we fully recommend this apartment as it is perfectly located near to the harbour while having stunning views of the islands. Finally you can always count on Frank’s friendlyness and reliability, which is essential in the hosting world of Airbnb.
Michael J. (Bavaria, Germany – June 2016)
When we saw your place at the internet for the first time our decision about the next travel destination was immediately made – so we booked at the travel agency . . . and surprisingly enough almost one hour later we’ve got a personal confirmation from you and in addition you recommended us to book on Airbnb so we can save money. And what is more, next day you called us on the phone to confirm that everything is going the right way. The logistics from the airport to Mediterranea Seaviews was organized ideal by you. And already your friendly welcome with ever so tasty ftiras, pastizzi and wine was overwhelmingly. We immediately felt very well at your charming and perfectly organized place. We very much enjoyed your home and the fantastic new bikes and helmets. Your recommendations about Gozo were absolutely brilliant. We found places we never would have detected without your briefings. And personally you spent a whole day with us both leading us to gorgeous places and telling us the history of Gozo. As we have very much similar likes we absolutely enjoyed the time you spent with us in the largest bakery in the world and eating the fresh baked ftiras at the biggest bench of Gozo 😉 To say it very clearly: travelling meanwhile since almost for forty years we never ever had such a perfect host as you were – permanent approachable and helpful, always friendly and careful. According to an old song of Elton John we very much would like to say: we hope you don’t mind that we put down in words how wonderful Gozo is while you’re our host! We fell in love with Gozo thanks to you. And we already decided to come back once. Thank you very very much for your incredible hospitality! Dear Frank, we came as guests but we leave as friends!
John & Mary (England – June 2016)
A fantastic stay in Gozo. Lovely home with every conceivable comfort, we could not have wanted anything more. The home was huse, spanning 3 floors with lots of outside space to enjoy the views and the sunshine. The host, Frank, is enthusiatic and committed to giving his guests a true Gozo experience. He provided a useful ‘briefing’ with maps of the island, bus timetables and information on the local attractions. He gave us recommendations of how to best use our short time in Gozo. He is a very generous host – he took us sea kayaking and we only paid for kayak hire (we would have paid over £100 more if we’d gone with a company)! He brought us lunch and took us to some beautiful swim spots around the island. Overall, a lovely experience. We plan to return to Gozo and would not hesitate to book with Frank.
Divya G. (UK – June 2016)
Dear Frank, Firstly – thank you so much for your incredible hospitality, and your willingness to share all of your knowledge of your home here in Gozo. You are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place and in such a beautiful spot also. The house was completely private with a lovely swing on the terrace, and completely equipped with it anything you might need. While we managed to only stay a short time, your tips were such a great help and your ongoing assistance for when we planned things made it such a relaxing time for my fiancé and I. We have already begun to plan our next trip back and know exactly where we will be staying. And we will most definitely take you on your kayaking offer.
Nicky & Scott (Australia – July 2016)
Frank was a most welcoming host. He took great care in orientating us to the accommodation and the local area. It was one of the warmest welcomes I had received. The accommodation was excellent with excellent views and facilities. Easy access to the whole island via the bus service. Thanks to the careful directions of Frank we got to see many places.
Sandro A. (Malta – July 2016)
Let me get straight to the point… by the end of our weekend stay we just did not want to leave. The house?… so well equipped with loads of accessories… a high-end gas BBQ on which we cooked delicious swordfish, salmon and king prawns (the host even provided sea water to wash the fish prior cooking – the Gozitan way!)… fresh coffee and a coffee grinder to start the morning… many types of glasses, dishes and cutlery… satellite TV… a gorgeous bathroom with a so powerful shower… I can go on and on… The view?… to die for. Extended seaviews of Comino and all the way across the channel to Malta… you cannot just ask for better. The location?… so relaxing and yet so close to all amenities. I can still hear the chirping of birds early in the morning. And to top all this up… a perfect friendly host in Frank. So easy to communicate with and goes all the way to help you. He was ready to help before we even asked for help. All in all… home away from home. Such a welcoming and cozy place… we want to return even in winter. There is also a fireplace which continues to tempt us even more to take a winter break here.
Magali B. (Grenoble, France – July 2016)
How surprised we were about our stay in Franck ‘s house ! A splendid and big one, with a lot of nice terraces, large rooms, a big kitchen with all the necessary to cook, big barbecue…but the best was : Our host was the host that everyone could dream about! very welcoming, always ready to serve but with discretion, never intrusive….All the conditions in place to have a nice stay without any stress in a country we didn’t know..Franck took the time to explain a lot of things about Gozo, he took his car to let us see where find good meat or fish…We had one question, he had 12 solutions ! ;). ..All was really great and one more time we want to thank you Franck! !!
Maria B. (Malta – July 2016)
Our stay at Mediterranea Seaviews was by far my best Airbnb experience to date! The whole experience was a dream! Frank is extremely helpful and answered any questions we had and we appreciated that he took the time to pick us up from the port and show us around Gozo. The area is quiet and very safe with public transport, restaurants and supermarkets close by and within walking distance. The house is a typical Gozitan house which is spacious and private with multiple balconies and terraces with the best view on the island you could wish for! It is truly a unique and cozy house! Anything you could need is available and we immediately felt at home and even came home to a lunch prepared for us by Frank and his mother which was delicious. Any info you might need about restaurants, walking guides and best things to do in Gozo are all available. The house was extremely clean and Frank left no stone unturned. This house is a little piece of paradise and I will definitely return soon.
