Make holiday rental in Goa your home away from home

Goa, a state on the east coast of India, is a wonderful holiday oasis which has developed a (slightly unfair) reputation as a sun, sea and party destination. Whilst this reputation is founded, there is much more to enjoy from Goa accommodation too. Although the hippies have long gone, the finest aspects of Goa which first attracted them are still there, from the beaches of the Arabian Coast to the wildlife rich countryside of the interior, as is much of the atmosphere which they created. Many people are so taken with Goa’s beaches and untouched countryside when they first visit accommodation in Goa that they end up buying Goa property in which to live.

Things to do from your holiday rental in Goa

Most holidays in Goa revolve around the beaches, and it is little wonder as the golden sands stretch as far as the eye can see in many places, and there are regular electronic music and psy-trance parties which spring up during the evening, making a Goa beach hut one of the most social, if a little hectic, types of accommodation you can take in Goa! The favourite Goa beach to visit is undoubtedly Calangute Beach, but Anjuna, Palolem, Miramar and Dona Paula are superb places to hire a Goa property too.

Diving holidays are exceptional in Goa due to the warm waters of the Arabian Sea, which teems with marine life. Scuba diving holidays can only be taken from mid October until May as monsoon conditions make diving impossible from June until October. If you are looking to dive during your holiday, take a Goa villa or beach hut in or around Panjim, Pigeon Island or Candolim.

Culturally speaking, Goa is an incredibly diverse place. There are so many religions and cultures intertwined in Goa that there seems to be as many holidays as working days in Goa’s completely unique cultural calendar.

If you venture away from the party beaches, the countryside of Goa is truly remarkable. Dotted across the area are a number of spectacular bird and animal sanctuaries, from which you can walk and explore, hopefully catching a glimpse of some of India’s rarest animals from one of the watch towers. There are also a range of stunning coastal forts along the Goan coastline, which are well worth investigating from any accommodation in Goa.

Places to holiday in Goa

Panaji is the official capital of Goa, and one of the best places to see an assortment of the famous Goan churches, palaces and temples. Panaji is one of the smallest state capitals in India, but defiantly one of the most alluring.

Weather in Goa

The monsoon season in Goa lasts from June and the beginning of October, which really limits your options from a Goa property, whether you are staying in a villa in Goa or a beach hut. During the remainder of the year, the weather is extremely pleasant, ranging from 29°C – 33°C during the days.

Travel to your holiday accommodation in Goa

Every year, more charter flights leave England, in particular, London, for Goa, landing at Dabolim Airport (GOI). ThomsonFly, First Choice Airways and MyTravel Airways all provide cheap flights to Goa, which has made reaching accommodation in Goa from the UK and across Europe far less of an adventure in itself!

We travel around on the local buses during our stay plus even caught one for our return flight.Cost was only 70inr for two of us and local use cost a mere 10inr.Local shacks and restaurants along with the staff were really good and would recommend a visit to the Farmhouse which was a perfect place to enjoy a meal out.Excellent time spent at a lovely homely Villa..Thanks Nigel & Therea

The apartment is equipped with everything you would need. The added bonus was the landlord being so nice and helpful while we was there. Recommend this landlord and apartment to everyone.
