We have been returning to Varca Beach and this rental complex for over five years because it offers exactly what we need. As Expats living in Delhi, we travel to Goa for peace and quiet, and the relaxing knowledge that we are in a safe and and family friendly environment. As we sat outside the three bedroom villa we rented this time, we could hear the waves. We spent several lazy afternoons outside in the shade reading and enjoying the outdoor set-up. And although we usually are on the beach for sunset, the one evening I opted to stay home, I enjoyed a beautiful sunset from the master bedroom. The villa is just a short walk to the beach and has good A/Cs, is clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen offers everything you need to cook, while admittedly I don't travel to Goa to do that.
The apartment is nicely and quietly situated about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Benaulim, with all its noise, colour and crazy drivers. From the amount of information provided by Nigel and Teresa following our booking, and their obvious concern for us to have a great experience, our expectations were high. We were not disappointed. The apartment is charming, well maintained and thoroughly kitted out. There are three verandas and we tended to use the one at the back - misty sunrises and balmy evenings, lovely. We took full advantage of the recommendations of trips to markets, spice plantations, boat trips etc . The boat trip up the Sal river, organised by Franco, was particularly good and great value. Although usually, very active when on holiday, by the end of this one we were totally seduced by Benaulim and its beaches and beach huts. Soft sand, a warm sea, friendly service of good food and drink whilst watching the sun go down. What's not to like. Many thanks to Sandra, William, Franco, and Nigel and Teresa.
