AYUVERDIC TREATMENT : www.ayurgoa.com: Take the opportunity to be checked by by our famous Ayuverdic DR.

Ayurveda is a form of alternative medicine in use now worldwide. The word 'Ayurveda' is a compound of ?yus meaning 'life' and veda meaning 'knowledge', and would roughly translate as the 'Science of Life'. Ayurveda is a science in the sense that it is a complete system. It is a qualitative, holistic science of health and longevity, a philosophy and system of healing the whole person, body and mind.

The aim of Ayurgoa is to give guidelines for maintenance and promotion of health as well as prevention and treatment of diseases. The aim of every human being is to attain a state of happiness with fulfillment of all desires acquiring health and live a religious life and thats the goal of ayurgoa.

Goa exudes charm and warmth mainly because of the friendly and happy-go-lucky people who reside there. The people of Goa are extremely hospitable and make their guests feel at home.

Goan Cuisine.: Goa not only has a varied culture but also a diverse cuisine. The famous cuisine of Goa is a must try for all those who are traveling to this wonderful place. Many people tend to limit the Goan cuisines to rice, fish and curry. Agreed, that is the traditional food of Goa and makes the daily meal of a happy Goan. But the local food of Goa goes beyond just rice, fish and curry. The cuisine of Goa is sure to leave your taste buds asking for more and there is definitely a lot to choose from. The variety in Goan cuisine is due to the fact that this place has been ruled over centuries by the Mughals, Hindu rulers, Portuguese, etc. who have really left a permanent mark on the traditional style of Goan cooking and have given it an exotic edge.

The best places to try local Goan cuisines are those small restaurantsand beach chack. They may not have the looks of a grand five star hotel but they sure provide services that will win your heart over.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you that we could stay at your lovely house at Luisa by the sea. We enjoyed to go swimming early in the morning in the pool, had afterwards a cup of tea on the terrace and plan our day. All the people we met on Luisa, on the beach and in the village were very kindly and friendly. Especially Franky and our maid witch cleans every day were very friendly and helpful. I liked to have only a walk threw the houses and watch how lovely every detail was planed and keep clean and beauty for the guests. We loved to go to the beach, swim in the sea, prepare our own meal as we wanted to go out in one of the Restaurants. We could not visit all the things we planed to, because one of my daughters got ill ( kept it with from Germany). But we had afterwards a great day at Margao market, They sell there all the things ( spices, fruits, vegetables, Indian food ...) and had a very god meal in the restaurant "Sward". An other day I went with my children to the Hindu-Temples near Ponda. We were deep impressed of the architecture and the arts we could see there. Next time, I don’t know when, we will come again and then we will go to the waterfalls an visit the spice plantations and want to see so much more.

And we would like to come again in your house if we are welcome again.

Thank you for having a nice holidays in Villa “ Sunshine.”

What a lovely place to stay! Someone told me God lives in Goa, then it must be in this Garden of Eden of Luisa by the Sea.

Goa is everything you could ask for with it’s glorious climate, beautiful beaches and wonderful cuisine all around even on the Beach .

Fat Willy’s Beach Shack is laid back with great lunchtime Fisherman’s Wharf & Betty’s have great evening menus.
For Goan style visit Martin’s corners a Saturday nights – good food & a mix of tourists & locals, plus music – excellent!

This villa itself is lovely and well situated, we could watch the children in the pool whilst reading swinging in a chair on the veranda.

" Fiona " kept us clean & tidy with quiet calm & always a smile.

The children do not want to go home. A most relaxing and memorable holiday. We will be returning next year.

Wonderful setting and so peaceful

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second time at Luisa by the Sea and we have stayed in DREAM & SUNSHINE. Both are beautiful and the accommodation is excellent. Its nice being in a little village where you can wonder out and visit the local shops, plenty of bars and restaurants. We where there over Xmas and New Year and had a fabulous time. Our best restaurant that we visited far too much was FISHERMANS WHARF which is as good as any top restaurant in the world without the fancy prices.
You must walk down by the river which is just outside your door - watch the sunrise or sunset. Also amazing day trips to see the Dolphins and cruise down the river, all food and drink for a day for roughly £9 Dream & Sunshine has everything you would need for a home from home holiday, offering beautiful accommodation.

A place where you forget everything.

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 1 week absolutely fantastic in Sunshine house, perfect place for adult and children.
They are no better location that the sunshine house, near everything: the beach, restaurants, shops, transportations, and in the same time it’s so quiet, you wake up in tropical garden with the birds and squirrels. The swimming pool is just 15 meters from the house, most of the time we was alone like it was ours.
The house is cute with a nice terrace under the trees. We did appreciate to have a bathroom in each room. The kitchen is big enough; we used it only for breakfast because it’s so easy cheap and good to eat in restaurant.
The children and me enjoyed going to the beach morning and evening, we went on boat to see the dolphins, we feed the monkeys, had an elephant ride.
You have the advantage of a hotel, but not the inconvenient, you feel really free to just enjoy.
Thank you very much to the lady who comes everyday to clean the house.
But the most important is that we sent one unforgettable week.

The perfect holiday :-)

  • 5 out of 5
Got back on Saturday from the most fantastic holiday in Goa, staying at Sunshine Villa.

From the moment we got to Cavelossim the welcome was warm, we met Jean Pierre, Frankie and Maria and everyone was just lovely.

The location of Luisa by the Sea is just brilliant, in the middle of the town and yet just 5 minutes from the beach. Frankie and Maria took care of us while we were there, always a smile and very helpful, we were amazed that aswell as cleaning, Maria did our laundry every day, a much appreciated surprise. Sunshine itself is a fabulous villa, spacious and modern and really well located just by the pool. We spent alot of time sitting on the terrace drinking Kingfisher!! My husband appreciated the Sky TV so that he could keep up with the cricket world cup!!! The whole complex is lovely, clean, tidy and nice and quiet, unlike some hotels. It felt really private and at times we had the pool all to ourselves!

Cavelossim beach is just gorgeous, fabulous beach shacks serving the most amazing food, the little town is also great with a wide choice of restaurants and shops (so all the shopkeepers keep telling us!!)

Sorry if I sound a bit over the top but we've fallen in love with Cavelossim, Luisa by the Sea and Sunshine, so much so that we've not been home a week and we've already booked to go back next year, and we can't wait!!!

Thankyou to Jean Pierre, Frankie and Maria who all made this holiday really special :-)

Sleepy Cavelossim village is located on a narrow peninsular on the one side is the peaceful, lazily meandering River Sal and on the other 20 kms of powder white sand beach and the Arabian Sea. Imagine a place where you can watch the sunrise over the river and the sunset over the sea - the perfect idyllic retreat! It comes as no surprise that this prime spot has been chosen as the location for several five star hotels including The Holiday Inn and The Leela Palace. The original fishing community is still here and small fishing boats still go out to fish everyday.

Cavelossim is a small typical Goan village with a picturesque church square and a small store and a telephone shop. There is a ferry from the village over the river to Assolna.

There is plenty of choice for eating out as some of the best hotels in Goa are located in the area and each has one or two international standard restaurants plus evening entertainment programmes.

For Excursion and tips about Goa :

Other Activities: Para saling , Dolphin Sighting , Bird Watching

Golf: SPICE FARM:

There is more to Goa than just beaches, A major attraction in the rural side is the spice plantation of Goa. Situated in the region called Ponda (central Goa), the spice plantations in Goa use organic methods of cultivation and farming. The spices that are produced are then cleaned and ground into powder.

The spice plantations of Goa are quite popular as a tourist attraction. On a typical excursion to the spice plantations, you shall begin your day by starting to explore the fields and the farms. It is very astonishing to see men climbing on very tall trees while maintaining a balance and at the same time plucking betel nut fruits from those swaying trees. The spice plantations are managed by people who have comprehensive knowledge and excel in technical know how of farming spices. Some major spices produced in these spice plantations are: * Black pepper * Cardamom * Nutmeg * Vanilla * Cinnamon * Cloves *Chillies * Betel nut * Coriander * Cashew

Ski: WATERFALLS:

The Dudh Sagar waterfalls have a milky white appearance which is why it is named as Dudhsagar which literally

means 'Ocean of Milk'. The Dudhsagar waterfalls plunge down from a staggering height of 2000 feet. The waterfall is located amongst lush green surroundings of the forests of Western Ghats which is what makes it even more scenic and beautiful.

Many tourists who visit Dudh Sagar prefer swimming in the calm waters. It is quite safe to swim there provided one is careful enough.

The Dudhsagar waterfalls provide a breathtaking view from the top and they look scintillating during the crack of dawn. Those who love adventure and thrill can always try to climb to the head of the waterfalls though the rough path full of rocks, vegetation and water. It may take a couple of hours but it will definitely be worth it! So if you want to spend an entire day in serenity, go to Dudhsagar waterfalls of Goa.
