"Peter and Warren were the most welcoming hosts we have had! Super friendly and genuine.They made sure we had everything we needed and then came with even more surprises for breakfast. Their home is like a little piece of heaven, secretly hidden behind a red door.."
This past Easter/two weeks we had some fantastic guests. Very often guests leave doodles and paintings and messages in our guestbooks, left in each room, which serve to remind us why we do this job. These tokens and souvenirs have often brought a tear or two to our eyes. Guests cross over the threshold as 'strangers' but leave as part of an extended family who have touched our hearts. Now entering our third summer, we have been so so lucky and blessed with the people who have chosen to be our guests. We have learnt so much over our breakfast conversations and feel ever so grateful for the nurturing exchanges that have helped to keep island fever at bay!. So a BIG BIG THANK YOU from both of us for gracing us with your presences. Here are some of the latest reviews left in rooms and a selection of drawings that guests have gifted us with.

"We wish we could have stayed longer! Peter and Warren have such a welcoming home and they are such gracious hosts who can't do enough for you. The bedrooms are lovingly decorated and are very large with wonderful views over the countryside. There are many beautiful areas of the house to relax in, a great pool and breakfast is in the tranquil outdoor patio. Thank you for allowing us to share your home (with such an interesting history!) and we really appreciated your kindness, generosity and company!"
"Dar tal-Kaptan is just like paradise - you can't describe it, you have to see and experience it. We enjoyed our stay very much and felt as if we went to see our friends. Dear Peter and Warren we thank you very much for your extraordinary hospitality!
"No Detail is small....Peter und Warren haben diesen Grundsatz eines perfekten Gastgebers verinnerlicht! Die Ankunft , nachts (!) um 2:30 haben uns herzlich willkommen geheißen. Uns ihr wundervolles Haus gezeigt! Das Zimmer, oder besser gesagt, die Suite gezeigt. Die Unterkunft ist perfekt eingerichtet, die Symbiose aus alt und neu, das Design, die Ausstattung, ich glaube kaum, dass ein Luxushotel da mithalten kann! Das Frühstück am Morgen: einfach perfekt. Die liebevolle Zubereitung des Frühstücks in der wunderschönen Umgebung , kaum zu toppen. die liebevolle Art und Weise, wie dieses Haus eingerichtet ist, zieht sich mit der Art und Weise, wie die beiden Gastgeber mit ihren Gästen umgehen, durch. Wenn man eine außergewöhnliche Unterkunft sucht, kommt man daran nicht vorbei. Ich kann es kaum erwarten, bald dort wieder Zeit verbringen zu dürfen. Ich wünsche beiden viele nette Gäste, die dies zu schätzen wissen, und hoffe, immer wieder Unterschlupf finden zu können"
"Our experience with Peter and Warren at Dar tal-Kaptan was perfection! It was the perfect place to stay for our Honeymoon adventure! The location was ideal for us and staying with them provided us an authentic and beautifully rustic experience. Our private suite & terrace was amazing and the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate after our day adventures around the island. When we booked Dar tal-Kaptan, we were so looking forward to our stay with Peter & Warren and they did not disappoint! Our breakfasts with them were lovely and chatting with them upon our arrival over drinks was a wonderful welcome, as was the bottle of bubbles awaiting us in celebration of our marriage! Both my husband and I have been singing their praises since our departure! Also, they were so communicative, understanding and helpful when I had accidentally booked our stay for May, instead of June, much appreciated as we did not want to miss our time there! our only regret is that we did not have more time to hang around, lounge at the pool and socialize!"
