About Mrs Ujwal Desai

I am retired banker and my husband always wanted to have his own villa in Goa, which is our motherland. I grew up not very far from our villa in my childhood and I always had a vision of staying near beach, since I spent lot of my after school time on the beach with my dog and my school friends. We used to speak Portuguese up until the liberation of Goa, my father was a Portuguese school teacher. We used to catch small fish and cockles and mussels and my mum used to cook it for us, it was such a fun. Our house was across Mandovi river, a place called Betim and I studied in Panjim and always traveled by ferry. My love for Goa is very deep and whenever I visit Goa, the memories just mellow. My husband gifted this villa to me as a retirement present. What more can you ask? Of course we live thousands of miles away from India in cold country of which also I am fond of and proud. My children were born here and grew up here in England and we want to be near them, so we make sure we visit our villa once in a year and make a most of it.

Mrs Ujwal Desai purchased this villa in 1999

Why Mrs Ujwal Desai chose South Goa

Our villa is family oriented and for group of two to four couples. It is very bright and spacious , the lounge has got open veranda through french window. outside porch has got built in bench, nice to relax in the evening . Our villa is surrounded by lots of restaurants within walking distance and free delivery.

I used to go to Colva beach in my younger days, its very peaceful on the beach as you go further along.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa has got Portuguese style architecture, which reminds me of my childhood home.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Great location,just out of town centre, spacious in a lovely gated street.Very helpful staff,the only things that could be improved would be air conditioning downstairs and a grill or bbq provided to cook the local produce.

We enjoyed the Garden restaurant and Jamies,it was a fantastic holiday and we will return.

Owner's Response: I feel very proud that my guest has expressed about my staff. We always like to make our guest's stay as comfortable as possible by extending help and solving any problems that they might come across. Their comfort is our happiness. Unfortunately , it is not possible to install air conditioning downstairs, since it is open plan lounge and the energy will simply be wasted. I too like the idea of bbq, but it is not viable at the moment. Thanks for such excellent review.

Our Reunion in Colva, Goa

  • 5 of 5

My family, a sister and her husband from Toronto, Canada, my brother and his wife from Nairobi, Kenya and a friend and I from California, all decided that we would vacation together -- one week in Colva, one week in South India and one week in Candolim, Goa. When we got to the villa we were met by Namrata, a young Goan lady who was not only lovely to look at but very efficient as well. She made us feel very welcome. The villa itself was beaurtifully put together and the surrounding gardens were just beautiful. The villa was well guarded by a gated guard and made us feel very safe - even to take a walk in the grounds at night. The beach was fairly close and the grocery store as well as restaurants and the church were all close by. The kitchen had everything to help us prepare meals - if we needed to. I know that we all can safely say that this villa is a place that one can come to again and again. Thank you Mrs. Desai for allowing us to stay in your lovely villa.

Absolutely super villa

  • 5 of 5

For a first time visit in Goa with full family of 8, this was the perfect getaway. From pre-booking queries, to booking & payment, to airport pick up (owner recommended taxi driver Chandu who spoke really good English was waiting for us), to arrival at villa (with such a warm welcome from Saroj (the local agent), plus a very useful food pack), to full week stay (in a very spacious, well equipped kitchen/utility, clean, beautifully furnished, kid friendly villa) - we could not have asked for much more. Saroj was a godsend and dealt with all our questions, minor issues very efficiently & effectively. Swimming Pool not too big but was adequate in April off season period - not sure if it would be too crowded duriing peak times. Location was great for restaurants, Spas, Supermarkets, Margoa Town & Beaches - though with kids and heat it can be a long 20 minute walk to Colva beach - but if you have local mobile and make friends with local rickshaw driver who resided in the flats next to Whispering Palms complex - even that worked out fine. Colva Beach was pretty busy however a short rickshaw drive took us to Benaulin Beach which was less crowded and had some super beach shacks and restaurants/bars. Picked up some great bargains like fresh Cashew nuts in Margoa Market. Would suggest taking your laptop with mobile, as nearby internet cafes do not have Skype. Have already recommended to friends and family and will have no hestitation in revisiting.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from this wonderful villa and I couldn't wait to share my experience.

The villa is exactly as advertised, clean, spacious and very well equipped.

Communication from the owner prior to arrival was excellent, giving lots of information and accurate 'tips' on the area.

There was also a great welcome 'grocery' pack for our arrival, a lovely touch.

The pool was lovely and the grounds are very well maintained. Its around 20 minutes walk from the lovely Colva beach, but if you have two lazy children like us, a taxi or 'tuk tuk' is readily available for only a pound or so.

The local agent was very helpful and after a minor problem, she arrived to rectify it after just 10 minutes.

There are numerous shops/facilities just outside the small complex, and a great 'takeaway' if you fancy a night in (they will also deliver). The beach shacks and surrounding restaurants all served the most delicious food, there was always a good choice and great service. We can honestly say we didn't have a bad meal during the two weeks we spent in Goa! The only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer!

I would definitely recommend a stay at "16 Sapana Whispering Palms" if you plan to visit Goa.

Thanks again for a lovely holiday.

A beautiful and spacious villa.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from your beautiful villa in Goa where we had a very pleasant stay. The property is exactly as in photographs.Your friend was there to meet us on arrival. She’s a friendly lady with whom we had a good chat about nearby facilities. Your villa is very spacious and well maintained. It was clean and tidy, ideal for our family. Our grandson had plenty of room to play. The swimming pool was also clean and of good size. The food pack was a nice touch. It saved us having to rush out to the local supermarket (Sho-Faz) which incidentally is quite close and offers reasonable prices. We really liked Colva beach which is cleaner and less crowded than those in the north. It’s just about within walking distance of the villa. Overall, we had a fantastic time and will recommend your villa.

Car: not necessary

The villa is located in the lovely village of Colva, only a 15 min walk (or very cheap taxi!) from the stunning white sand Colva beach in South Goa. Colva beach is one of the longest in the world (24 km) and boasts fine white sand, tall coconut trees, warm turquoise blue water and some of the best resorts that you can find in Goa. There are enough (but not too many) snack bars and restaurants all offering fresh Goan style sea food. The warm waters mean that swimming in the sea is safe and enjoyable, and the truly beautiful sunsets make this a must see. Supermarkets are within 5 min walking distance from the villa. Benaulim beach which has renowned restaurants, such as Johncy's, is only 10 min away too.
