The place is well kept and actually very close to Calangute beach. The staff is very helpful and not more than a call away.
I was not very happy with the quality of linens, which were really worn out and Internet, which was very intermittent and was not available all across the villa.
On the whole a comfortable stay.
Our stay was as we wanted it, We were 10 seniors and wanted to relax for few days. we got exactly what we wanted. The place is nice & peaceful. Beach as well as Market is at a walking distance so no hassle.
We have couple of suggestions to make. 1) The Bath tubs on the left hand side of villa are not comfortable for senior citizens, To get in and to get out of the bath tubs is like climbing a steep rock without any support 2) There is no drinking water filtration equipment in the kitchen and one has to pay for bottled water from their own pocket.
3) In the kitchen there are no small utensils, you have to use big items even to make tea or coffee for one or two persons.
Management has to do something about the same.
The location is fantastic and is just 5 mins walk from Jolly’s beach shack on the Calangute beach. The road to the beach is lined up with beach stalls for local shopping and restaurants (veg/non-veg). Bike and car rentals are available just outside the property.
We booked this property in the month of January 2020 for 4 nights, via their sales team. Right from the start - the experience was seamless. We had to pay 50% to confirm our booking and the rest 50% on arrival (via Cash). There was also a refundable security deposit of Rs. 10,000 (again via cash).
The accommodation has a check-in time of 12:00 PM and check-out at 10:00 AM, with the possibility of early check-in and late check-out subject to availability as of Jan 2020.
The property has 6 bedrooms with different configurations thus guests can book as per their requirements and configurations. Some rooms have 3 independent beds while some have single queen/king bed. Some bedrooms have bathtub in attached toilets while some don’t. All have AC with wardrobe.
The kitchen is quite spacious and is well equipped with a microwave, kettle, gas stove and required crockery. Drinking water along with a refrigerator and a washing machine is provided for. The villa provides daily cleaning by staff which includes washing utensils and doing laundry. All consumables including food and washing powder are to be provided by guests. The villa also provides a cook on request. A shop opposite to the villa provides for most important items however there is a Newton’s super mart nearby at walk able distance.
Free WiFi and Tata sky connection is provided, but not very reliable. Hot water is available via solar. Pool has a kid’s pool and is shared with another adjacent villa.
The cons that I can think of – having to transact in cash, old furniture in some bedrooms, non -reliable WiFi and Tatasky, one of the AC kept turning OFF, outdated washing machine.
Overall the stay was pleasant and comfortable. Will re-book this property every time I visit Goa.
We stayed in a group of 10 adults + 9 kids from 1-10 years, and had a great time!
Caretakers are friendly, offer breakfast, lunch/dinner if requested and are available on premise, which is a must while travelling with family. Overall cleanliness was well maintained. Location is perfect - situated in middle of market, with a walking distance of 3 mins to the beach. Restaurants are adjacent to the location and deliver food on premise. Check-in, check-out was also nice. Only feedback would be to have even better control for mosquitoes (repellants are provided in every room though).
Overall a nice stay and would recommend.
The villa was amazing, very spacious, and with everything you need, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the cleaner does a wonderful job, the beach and shops and restaurants really are only a few minutes walk, we will be going back there soon
