“Authentic Goan/Portuguese style country home”

Our holiday home was lovely and the neighbourhood full of friendly folk. A car would have been useful but we were ever being offered lifts, which we took, mainly on motor bikes and scooters. The house had good basic facilities and we used the verandah a great deal for meals, reading, studying and socialising. The morning bus from the nearby church was very handy for Margao and was punctual while the local riverside store/restaurant extremely handy and friendly. Our hosts were very attentive and tolerant of us. We felt treated like local people rather than foreign tourists and that was a delight.

“True Goan living”

We stayed at the Chandor St. Anthony/St. Francis Holiday Homes for 3 months and lived like local Goans. The experience was interesting. The owners, Alex and Lancy, with their 3 children were congenial and quite informative, helping us find our way in and around Goa. There is a bus at the corner, just a few steps away from our lodging, that takes you to Margao for shopping, a rail station, other busses and transports. It would be helpful, though, if you had your own transportation even though there are tuk-tuks and taxi cabs from Margao to back home.

The clean accomodations had wet rooms and kitchenettes along with a refridgerators and there is a small convenience store just 500 steps away. There are also fresh baked bread and fresh fish sellers that come around twice a day, every day riding bicycles.There is a restaurant that will deliver if the order at least 1,000 rupees... of fresh cooked hot Goan food. The accommodations are in a very nice, clean, safe country neighborhood and the church is directly across the street from the property. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch reading. The weather was superb with bright sun and no rain for the entire time we were there.

You can take the bus to the many of the beaches dotted along the Arabian Sea that is not far away; those beaches are clean, well kept and have many restaurants.

This was our first experience visiting India and Alex and Lancy made us feel quite at home, in fact they invited us to their daughter's first communion party. They are good people.

If I were to choose one word to describe our experience, it would be "authenticity".

Enjoy your visit.

“Wonderful stay ”

Four of us stayed here for 12 nights and it was one of our best stays in India so far. Alex and his wife were very kind and accommodating and the price was very reasonable. It was very clean and complete with our own kitchen, bedroom, toilet and patio. Chandor is a beautiful little town and once we rented bikes it was easy to get around. I highly recommend this place!

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 12 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We stayed with family along with our pet dog at ST. ANTHONY AND ST. FRANCIS XAVIER HOLIDAY HOMES. Since we had a pet dog, we were searching for places in Goa and found ST. ANTHONY AND ST. FRANCIS XAVIER HOLIDAY HOMES to be the best suited for our requirement. It's an old portugese house with all the required facilities. It was like a home away from home. The owner Alex was very friendly and gave us the right information of the place before we reached.

Pros:
1. Very neat and clean place.
2. Friendly owner who helped us with right information with respect to the place, welcomed us with a smile, helped us with information regarding surrounding places.
3. A basic kitchen with few vessels and a functional gas stove.
4. Wifi internet for basic access to information
5. Neighborhood was quite and peaceful

Cons:
1. Lack of airconditioning system
2. 14 kms to the famous Colva beach (took us approximately 30 mins to reach the beach, which is not bad).
3. Poor mobile network coverage inside the premises.

Overall we had a good experience and i would recommend this place for anyone who come for their vacation in Goa along with their pets.
