Apartment in Siolim, Goa, India - Set in a Peaceful Location Within Easy Reach of Siolim Village
The apartment is perfect for nature lovers and for those seeking a relaxing holiday in luxurious tropical surroundings. Wake up to the sounds of birds singing then enjoy breakfast on your choice of two balconies, one with uninterrupted views of the palm groves, the other overlooks the complex and shared swimming pool. Directly above the apartment is a private sun deck for the exclusive use of the apartment guests where the views by day or night get even better.
Local shops and facilities are situated a short walk down the hill in the villiage of Siolim itself. The beautiful and unspoilt beaches of Anjuna, Vagator, Morjim and Ashwem are approximately 10 minutes taxi ride away whilst the busier resorts of Baga and Calangute are approximately 15 minutes away. The ludicrously cheap prices of local taxis means that you can easily travel to the busier resorts when you wish to. Should you choose to hire a car or motorcycle, the apartment has its own private, covered, secure parking space.

About Andy and Anita
Hi We are Andy and Anita. We first came to Goa for an eight day period of relaxation following a trip around India including Mumbai, New Delhi, Taj Mahal and the Gujerat. We truly enjoyed the chance to relax in this amazing place. In fact we enjoyed it so much, we decided to buy our very own place. We had a week in Europe earlier this year but have now been spoiled by Goa and cant wait to be back there.
Why Andy and Anita chose Siolim
Everybody says that location is important and we think we struck gold with our choice. We don't like to be woken by car horns and traffic noise. We wouldn't want to stay in the centre of a bustling resort in Goa, and with Villa Maria, there is no need to. We have a beautiful place in natural unspoilt surroundings yet we are a short and inexpensive taxi ride from as much (or as little) activity as we want !. Do you sound like us ? Good - you will love it !!
What makes this Apartment unique
Our hillside apartment is a haven of peace and tranquility yet is just a few minutes walk from local amenities including money exchange, internet cafe and shops in the village of Siolim itself. The apartment is within easy reach of the quiet northern beaches but the busier resorts of Baga, Calangute and Candolim are relatively short distance away by car/motorcycle.

Lovely location..well equipped property.
Beautifully located away from the built up areas..great to relax & enjoy the wildlife surrounding you, abundance of bird life & monkeys outside.
OUR BEST HOLIDAY EVER!!
Villa Maria E6 just has to be the best value in Goa. The apartment is cool and comfortable with all rooms having aircon. The views from the front balcony across the tree canopy are amazing, the sunrises were just the best and the Langur monkey troop passing close by each morning and evening were just so entertaining. The owners Andy and Anita were a great help prior to us leaving for the holiday and were very quick in answering any queries we had. Peter the apartment manager was very helpful, Ruby the cleaner was very efficient. One of the important points to note is that Villa Maria is outside the village entirely surrounded by the jungle, so very quiet, no traffic noise. We used the same taxi driver all the time we were there, Rupesh. He was our best asset and never once took us anywhere just to gain a fare, several times we asked to go somewhere and he would tell us "not a good day to go there" and give us the reason. All in all a fantastic stay and we would have returned again in Dec for 3 months but E6 is already sadly booked.
Two very happy people Terry & Sharon
Special interest holidays:
The apartment would particularly suit persons with an interest in wild life and bird watching. It is possible to hear and sometimes see monkeys in the forest/jungle area viewed from the balcony. Dolphin trips are offered in Goa where refund will be given if no dolphins are seen. You can also go crocodile hunting in the rivers and backwaters.
The beautiful and unspoilt beaches of Anjuna, Vagator, Morjim and Ashwem are approximately 10 minutes taxi ride away whilst the busier resorts of Baga and Calangute are approximately 15 minutes away. The ludicrously cheap prices of local taxis means that you can easily travel to the busier resorts when you wish to. We can assist by providing details of taxi drivers who have proven to be reliable in the past.
Goa has its own international airport which is Dabolim. Qatar fly scheduled services to Dabolim from the UK or there are other charter options. Alternatively, you can fly to Mumbai and take one of the many domestic flights that connect to Goa. Our representative will be pleased to meet you at Dabolim Airport and take you to the apartment (approximately 1,000 rupees/around £13). The journey takes around 1 hour and 15 minutes which gives you an idea of how cheap taxis are.
Local shops and facilities are situated a short walk down the hill in the village of Siolim itself where most everyday provisions can be purchased. It is generally not expensive to eat out in Goa. The nearest restaurants and bars on the tourist trail can be found on the roads to Anjuna and Vagator (5 to 10 minutes by car/taxi) although there are local bars and in the village. Our local representative speaks excellent English and will be pleased to provide you with more information on arrival.
A post office, money exchange office and internet cafe are situated a five minute walk away in the village of Siolim where you can also buy food and local provisions. Siolim has a real local feel to it. Its location set back away from the beach means that it remains unspoilt by tourism (don't just take our word for it, travel guides such as 'Lonely Planet' will tell you the same). The area is home to many lovely Portuguese colonial houses which reflect the unique history of Goa. The apartment itself is an ideal base for exploring the northern resorts. The unspoilt Chapora River is situated in Siolim. Overnight river cruises take you right into the heart of the real Goa. The market town of Mapusa is situated about 10 minutes drive away and has a busy local market every Friday. Other markets take place in Anjuna and Arpora every Saturday. The Anjuna market is particularly famous for Kashmiri spices and souvenirs. The beautiful beaches of Ashwem, Morjim and Vagator are more accessible from Siolim than from the more commercial resorts of Baga and Calangute. The great thing about Goa though is that you can holiday like a king without paying a kings ransom due to the favourable exchange rate of the Rupee against Pound Sterling. Please feel free to contact either Andy or Anita via details shown if you require any other information in relation to the apartment, Siolim or Goa itself.
