About Charlotte

My name is Charlotte and my mother Rosie and I, run the villa! We live in Ireland, where we own and run several rental properties and have been running the villa in Goa as a guest house for eleven years now. We spend several months in heavenly south Goa ourselves each year at the villa. When we are away, our three fantastic staff - Devidas, Reema and Anand, who have all been with us since the start, take excellent care of the villa and the guests.

Charlotte purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Charlotte chose South Goa

We fell madly, hopelessly and deeply in love with Goa whilst on a holiday there and knew immediately that it was a place we wanted a base in! We escape the long cold Irish winters in the glorious Goan sunshine and color - it's a dream!

What makes this apartment unique

This is a great homely vibrant safe space and ideal base for a great time in Goa getting the best of of beach life and Indian village life. The villa is cleaned daily, all your laundry is done for you and it is very secure. It makes for a really great holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I loved your place and I had the best time of my life there. I loved the vibrant decor and wall hangings, the interior is a credit to you. I will try and organize my holidays so that I can return again. Jane Tilley. April 2014

A rather late e-mail to let you know what a great time I had at the Pink Villa!! It was the perfect place to stay after a rather hectic tour and my stay was made all the more wonderful by meeting your family who were very entertaining. It was marvelous! Madeline Herrige. April 2011.

Just to let you know what a superb time I had at the villa. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful and i very much enjoyed Anands picking down of coconuts from the garden for me daily! What a charming place and very comfortable base for my delightful stay in that beautiful part of Goa. I was very impressed with the villa and happy to be there and will certainly be back. Thanks again for everything. Richard Thompson-Moore. February 2013

Thank you all for making the first leg of my first visit to India so smooth. I felt welcomed safe and completely relaxed at the villa and the Studio was ideal as my base camp. Devidas was a star and so helpful and what a treat to have my laundry done daily and to come back to a beautifully made bed with my laundry folded beautifully upon it! This did not happen for the rest of my travels in India!! I enjoyed sitting on the patio sheltering from the heat of the afternoon and getting some work done in the peace and tranquility of the garden with the occasional visit from a tiny chip monk! Charming place, delighted with my time there - thanks again. Jane Skovgaard. Ireland.

Notes on accommodation: The villa is so fantastic and so adaptable. It is ideal for large groups who want to holiday together and yet have their own spaces and separate bathrooms, kitchens etc whilst sharing the same property. It is the ideal property for families with children with the garden, mosquito nets on windows, safe drinking water, proximity to the pool and beach etc. The villa can be taken as a single unit or each apartment can be hired separately by different parties or a combination of two can be taken. The Panoramic apartment is the upper floor of the villa, the Garden apartment is the ground floor and the Studio is an extension to the ground floor facing the garden at the back of the villa. It enjoys a peaceful location and yet is so close to centers of activity and so is great for all ages as there is something nearby for all. There is daily cleaning and twice weekly laundry service, room service available from neighboring restaurants and so it really offers the ideal break. Outside: The garden is filled with an array of palm & fruit trees & an abundance of flowering bushes surround it. There is a large sandstone patio area around the villa with sets of tables & chairs, 4 huge balconies upstairs, two of which are covered & a porch downstairs with a swing chairs & rocking chairs. The garden is a great place to rig up a hammock and relax under a coconut palm! The beach is only a 7 minute walk from the villa, but if you feel like a quick dip without the walk, then there are rickshaws beside us which will drop you to the waters edge for 20 rupees (30p)! For those who prefer pools, there is a magnificent one in the hotel grounds opposite. The hotel charges a reasonable daily rate for this. There is a volley ball net on the beach & tennis courts a minute away which are 200 rupees (£3) to hire for an hour including rackets & balls. There is a stunning lagoon nearby which is a magical place to swim. River trips are available nearby in hollowed out mango trees boats!

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

The garden flat is very comfortable and homely as is spacious. I have been coming here for the past 3 years. I find the village an excellent get away from the beach It's lovely and quiet and the restaurant's are really good warm and friendly. Patnem beach is walking distance at a low tide and a rickshaw back is 70p! A great location for chawdi which has banks, shops and a market on Saturdays a cab is £1 and it takes 5 mins to reach. so you have it all on your doorstep. Great for families as the viila has a bath and a shower and space for everything.
