A relaxing and tranquil haven.

  • 5 out of 5
My Wife and I just spent a the first week of November at Casa Maya. It's truly a lovely place. Very tastefully decorated, spacious with all mod cons. Thank God for the air conditioning.

Having your own pool is another huge plus and we had some great pool parties!

Maria, the house keeper, is also very helpful and she kept the place spotless as well as cooking our breakfasts every morning.

Also, the bed in the master bedroom is sooo comfy too!

The only criticism I could make is that during the course of our stay, there were numerous power cuts and there was no generator to back it up. It also could be useful if the path from the main road was lit up a tad more.

But honestly, it's a wonderful place to spend your holiday and we both thoroughly recommend it.

Andy and Jen, Surbiton.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately power cuts can be a fact of life in Goa and at the time of this stay it was bad because of bad weather. I do have a back up inverter ( large battery) but it only covers some lights and the fans. I am going to investigate having a generator installed.

Regarding a 'tad more light' on the pathway to the street I am meeting with the Panchayat to discuss this. I have installed lights part of the way at my expence and I don't mind putting more. But I do need to discuss this with the Panchayat to get their permission.

Amazing Goan experience

  • 5 out of 5
My partner and I had an amazing holiday at Casa Maya. It was our first time in Goa, and we felt really lucky to have found somewhere so comfortable and well equipped so close to such an amazing beach - and stores, bars etc.

I've read some negative reviews about the villa, but our experience was totally different. You have to understand you're in India, and expect minor issues like blown light bulbs. However, nothing that couldn't be fixed in minutes failed during our stay. The place was in good nick, and lived up to the pictures online (the pool especially), which were what sold it to us in the first place.

Was it like a week in Broadstairs? No. The traffic's hair-raisingly Indian. The maid and the driver are Indian. The climate's Indian. The locals are Indian. If you want a week in Kent, go there. If you want a week in India, there aren't many better places to enjoy one.

Lovely 2 bed villa in a central location

  • 5 out of 5
I spent an extremely enjoyable fortnight with my boy friend last May at Casa Maya and were met at the airport by a very friendly driver who took us straight to the villa. Which was very convenient as it was our first trip to Goa.

The villa itself was perfect for us with it’s private pool and a helpfull local manager Shane who arranged some nice trps for us including a day riding horses as well as hiring a scooter for us to make trips on our own exploring the local beaches.

The villa itself was located very centrally but also in quiet spot close to the Candolim Beach and we were able to enjoy breakfast next to the pool in the morning watching the local bird life without the intrusion of the busy crowds only a short distance away.

Inside the house we had a comfortable bedroom with it’s own bathroom as well as another bathroom so that we didn’t need to share the same one.

If we any complaints sometimes we wished that Maria the housekeeper was a little over attentive but this was outwayed by the overall pleasure of staying in such a lovely house.

Would defintely consider returning and recomending to our friends.

An enjoyable week at a lovely Villa in Goa!


From the moment I arrived at Casa Maya with my friends to stay for a week this March we immediately felt at home after having made an exhausting trek around South Asia. It was just what we needed to chill out.

It was my first time in Southern India having only travelled in North India about 12 years ago and although Goa is much more commercialised Casa Maya has a peaceful feel about it that belies it’s proximity to the multitude of restaurants and shops just five minutes walk away.

The house is beautifully decorated and I especially loved the very large living room with it’s large collection of artwork hanging on the extremely high walls including two Andy Warhol prints of Marilyn Monroe facing each other across the room along side what appeared to be original paintings by contemporary Goan artists. In fact I enquired who the artists were and was introduced to Aadhi Vishal who had painted three of them and who was able to purchase one of his smaller paintings that was able to fit in my baggage and now is a treasured memory of one of the best holidays that I have had in a long while.

As an art lover this was an added bonus to staying in what by any standards is beautiful villa stay in and would recommend Casa Maya to anyone who appreciates that little extra touch of taste!

Owner's Response: Thank you!

It is nice for someone to appreciate the environment. I am always grateful for previous guests opinions even though one guest referred to "my dubious taste in "Pop art".

Obviously it is 'horses for courses' but I doubt if there are any other villas in Goa (or even India) that can boast to having two original Andy Warhol prints of Marilyn Monroe. It is just that they needed a large space to be appreciated and my apartment in London could never do them justice as they need high walls to be displayed on. This has given me the opportunity be able to share them with my guests and make them feel special.

Your generosity to my staff was noticed as opposed to guests who feel that they can demand refunds in return for not posting bad reviews. Often in this business it is a "held to ransom attitude."

I believe and feel that I give my guests a uniquie experience and we the team like to offer this at Casa Maya this sevice.

Guests can always feel that they can contact me in London if they wish and I will listen to any concerns and grievances that they might have.

It is nice to at least have a guest who can appreciate the effort that I have made to make them feel special.

very disappointed

  • 1 out of 5
Initial booking went ok, but then follow on communication very poor.
Beds hard - new mattress delivered. Pillows, cheap foam with offer no support.
Neighbours entered grounds and caused disturbance.
outdoor furnishings poor and coming apart at the seams.
Backup generator does not support aircon or hot water, only lighting.
Kitchen unhygenic and in need of sealant and grouting.
Shower, water temperature drastically fluctuates.
Only 2 sunloungers with mattresses.
No sunloungers on upsairs terrace.
Security guard falls asleep.
Communication regarding return pickup pratically non-existent and very stressful.
The property manager not helpful.
We returned 5 weeks ago and have e-mailed Stuart on numerous occasions with issues, he has not responded to these. This villa needs some TLC.
Overall very disappointed with this holiday and would not recommend friends to stay here.

Owner's Response: I will respond to this complaint but not comment on the guests as this review is not actually justified in my mind. I have made a special trip to Goa to check this as it only appeared on my HomeAway page around May 7th. I have replaced my housekeeper as most complaints emanate from her not carrying out her duties (especially cleaning) thoroughly.

Firstly I must point out that none of these complaints were made during the guests stay apart from the complaint about the mattress being hard which was dealt with immediately (I had my upholsterer who I called from London to attend within an hour or two and they acknowledged this). The problem was caused by housekeeper putting an expensive John Lewis mattress cover in the washing machine and it going lumpy.

The other complaints were made when they returned and I did not respond immediately as my pet cat of 18 years had been put down and I was not in a mood to be responsive to anybody. In retrospect unfortunate but I was quite upset and I think one does have the right to grieve! But I did respond a long time before this post was made and received no response from the guests until this review appeared.

Regarding outdoor furnishings coming apart I have spare ones which don't and the housekeeper should have changed them.

There is not a backup generator as I have an inverter (a large battery system) which does not support the air con as pointed out in the welcome pack. If the water is not hot it means that either the guest or maybe housekeeper has switched it off independently. I had instructed the housekeeper not to switch it off. Although it seems that water heater did work if the shower temperature "drastically fluctuates". Although this is over exaggerated as I have a pressure pump and the shower just has to adjusted correctly.

There are two sunloungers and two sunlounger chairs and either one of which can be taken onto upstairs terrace. I don't see what the problem was!

Regarding the kitchen as said at the beginning the housekeeper was not fulfilling her duties and has been replaced.

Night security guards sleeping can be a problem the new one is not so bad.

Return pickup was organised before they arrived as was arrival pickup obviously a breakdown in communication.

I have instructed my local manager to be more subservient when dealing with particular guests and have just completed a thorough check on house and again don't feel review is justified and I can rise above this review

Casa Maya- A superb Holiday Home

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed at Casa Maya for ten days in June. This was a family holiday with our kids age 6 and 1 and we had also taken our baby nanny with us.
The house is very spacious and ideal for the kids with its garden and the pool which is kept clean all day by the pool boy.
Stuart has thought of everything right from the bath robes to the little safe to subscribing for all channels on the pay tv, the kids were absolutely delighted to find their favourite teletubbies.
The breakfast prepared by Maria every morning is fantastic, she takes care to ask you the day prior about your preferences.She is very helpful and cleans the house a couple of times in the day.
My only suggestion to anyone planning to stay at casa maya is that if you prefer to be on your own then Maria can be a bit intrusive cause she is on the property all day long.
We were with kids so didnt mind her at all, infact she was a great help and she made sure that the house remained clean at all times.
Casa Maya's location is fabulous with newtons just a minute away and some good restaurants and shacks nearby.
Overall a great holiday and would highly recommend it to families with small kids.
