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!

The flat was as per description. It is a 10 - 15 minutes walk to the beach, which was not crowded.

The flat was as per description. It is a 10 - 15 minutes walk to the beach, which was not crowded. The host and his brother were very attentive and provided all info required and were easy to get in contact. Early check in and late check out very much appreciated. I would recommend.

5 of 5
This is probably the nicest apartment we've stayed in Goa. Vincent was most helpful and was available every day if we had needed anything. We were a party of 4 and like to go out exploring on scooters so we didn't spend any time in the pool. If there were any negatives at all, it would be that the grounds and pool area were not as nice as some of the complexes we have stayed in but this didn't really bother us as we were out and about all the time. Thank you Jennifer and Vincent for your hospitality. We would definitely recommend your apartment.

Rented private apartment in alor grande hotel Candolin

4 of 5
The apartment had everything we needed from a holiday let. it was clean and bedding and towels etc changed weekly, it was a little tired on the décor side but still of a good standard for India. The complex its self had a lovely pool and the restaurant was of a good standard and one of the cheaper places to eat, on the negative side a lot of the local population held seminars there and it was a little livelier than some would like it. We would definitely consider booking again. The agents at Abracasa were really professional especially Sarah who made our holday stress free booking taxi,s from the airport and back nothing to much trouble well done to the team.
