Time to Blog Again

My blogging has been a bit lax recently - a mixture of mainly nothing too interesting to blog about and busy with other jobs to be done.

First things first! The wind is with us at last and is coming in full force following the latest trend of either nothing or gale force. Have a look on WINDFINDER to see the forecast for today and the next few days. Looks like we are in for some thundery stormy weather too - well it is February and so far our winter has been practically non existent.

Now onto our Gozo Houses. It has been a busy time. Our annual maintenance is just about over in Dar Ghax-Xemx and we meet our first guests of the season next week. Hard to believe that we are already going into our 6th season since we started our rental business. Results have been excellent and the popularity of our little house in Victoria just keeps growing as do our list of repeat guests.

Our renovation project on San Pupulju is going exremely well too and we are still hoping to perhaps catch some of the summer season but cannot commit ourselves as yet. Below you can see some of the progress of the work on the house. All praise must go to our great team of workers who have kept going and not let us down in any way........so far!  Once the house is ready and the interiors are all in place - and hopefully all my ideas have come together the way I want them too (!) the house should look quite stunning. The aim is for our guests to walk into the house, experience a bit of a wow factor and feel totally relaxed and at home. I just hope I will manage to achieve that effect.

 The new floor in the double bedroom. We have also opened up a doorway onto a pretty balcony overlooking the courtyard and pool from this bedroom - a great countryside view too.

 The upstairs landing has a new floor and also new beams put in with a partial new roof too - major major job here!
Construction is going on at the moment on the main entrance and external stairs.

As you can see we still have a long way to go! The above is just a fraction of the house - the house itself is pretty large and will be able to sleep 8 plus a couple more in roll aways if necessary. There are also 2 ensuite shower rooms, a large main bathroom and spare loo downstairs.  Shall get some more decent photos soon and once it is ready will put it up ''on show'' and give the link for full details on our website.
