Stayed here for 2 nights on a whirlwind tour of Goa. We were three families with kids and got perfectly accomodated in the villa. The rooms are spacious, comfortable bathrooms, balcony in one of the room with a serene nature view. The owners are fabulous; courteous; warm and helpful. The owners; uncle & aunt; cooked extremely delicious foods that just left us completely awed. Mind boggling....different types of fish fries; curries; chicken; crab and what not we were treated to! We just said and they were more than happy to arrange. A self sufficient kitchen really helped us. We needed Cerelac for my kid and uncle brought it from market...separate low spicy food for kids.OMG! It was like staying as a joint family for those 2 nights...Ashvem beach is very close and so are a few shacks. We found Lamore quite good. The owners also arranged cars for travel and pickups/ drops. It was exhilarting to stay so close to Goan village! They also provided pillows and sheets. Actually we enjoyed to the fullest as they left nothing for us to worry. Thank you for making it awesome.
Points where there is some scope of improvement:
1. Bathrooms are good/ clean but a touch of paint can help.
2. The sofacumbed in the bigger room (balcony) was usable but has challenges. It may need some good renovation/ change.
You have to get down at Pernem to reach there- 25 mins. Thivim is slightly far off - 45 mins. As for value for money, you cant expect more. Home cooked fresh...lots of fresh air...relax; relax; relax.
I stayed at this Villa in first week of October 2015 with friends. It was pretty hot outside as the rains had ceded early yet it was pretty cool inside this Villa even without the AC. Definitely the AC gets extra brownie points. The Villa is located in a peaceful locale, if you just wish to unwind, watch TV, enjoy BBQ, or simply laze in the spacious veranda with your drink, enjoying the breeze. As you step outside, you witness a picturesque beach with a sublet river. The view is astounding & we were amazed to find the place beautifully located just opposite a serene beach with a rivulet. Though our list of activities included Rifle Shooting, Star Gazing, Coconut breaking, Swimming, witnessing Fishing & Crab hunting; all arranged by the owner. We also were guest to some historic places at walking distance. Numerous food joints nearby made the stay extremely convenient. Should you prefer to explore more of Goa, you can rent a 2/4 wheeler & drive down to all famous places of Goa conveniently located from this Villa. The owner of this beautiful Villa was kind and arranged a mesmerizing sight-seeing, list of activities & shopping at great prices to make it a memorable trip for us. One thing I would surely like to mention is respect the locals & they would treat you well.

e, a group of friends went there in October last year. The place is at a secluded area surrounded by greenery. Stay was comfortable and we all enjoyed boating in backwaters and the unique experience of catching crabs using row boats. Overall a good experience!
