THIS BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IS A HAVEN OF TRANQUILITY.

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful, and as described. All bedrooms were lovely clean and bright with air con. It was lovely having 2 lounge areas, great for friends sharing the house. Kitchen was well furnished for the type of entertaining we were doing.So many shower and bathrooms no waiting to shower any time of day. The property was clean and well maintained. We did have a few problems but they were delt with amazing speed. Nothing is too much trouble. All the staff on site were friendly and approachable. Even fresh rolls delivered to your door for breakfast. The balconies were terrific for spending idle hours watching the different birds on their morning and evening flights. Mongoose, and chipmunks all to be seen from the balcony. Fabulous pool, lovely grounds and small local shops ans a local vegetable cooperative just a minutes walk away. The trip from Baga to the house is as always a lovely drive ending with the ferry ride. Local life at its best. We would and have recommended the house to friends and always bring family with us. Thanks Subhash another great stay. We hope to stay longer next year. Heather Brakes

PERFECT FOR EXPLORING GOA

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house over the Christmas holidays for an extended stay with our children. It was magical. The house itself is large and very comfortably furnished. It is cleaned every day, and there was a limitless supply of fresh towels. It was also arranged that a lovely lady cooked for us every day. Oh, and fresh bread was delivered every morning!

The grounds are beautiful, the highlight being an enormous, well-maintained pool. Our children spent hours there every day.

Everything was always clean and tidy, as well as very quiet. The owner, Subhash, took care of all our needs and always went above and beyond the call of duty.

The location is on an inlet, you need to take a short ferry ride to get there. It means that you are surrounded by bucolic countryside, with just a few very friendly locals around. It is possible to rent a car and driver to take you to the beach, shopping or sightseeing.

We enjoyed our holidays so much that we have already been back again and are planning our next visit. We have also recommended the house to some friends and they were just as enthusiastic about the place. Absolutely perfect location for a trip to Goa.

(Note that at the same location it is also possible to rent 1- and 2-bedroom townhouses.)
