A relaxing and tranquil haven.

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I just spent a the first week of November at Casa Maya. It's truly a lovely place. Very tastefully decorated, spacious with all mod cons. Thank God for the air conditioning.

Having your own pool is another huge plus and we had some great pool parties!

Maria, the house keeper, is also very helpful and she kept the place spotless as well as cooking our breakfasts every morning.

Also, the bed in the master bedroom is sooo comfy too!

The only criticism I could make is that during the course of our stay, there were numerous power cuts and there was no generator to back it up. It also could be useful if the path from the main road was lit up a tad more.

But honestly, it's a wonderful place to spend your holiday and we both thoroughly recommend it.

Andy and Jen, Surbiton.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately power cuts can be a fact of life in Goa and at the time of this stay it was bad because of bad weather. I do have a back up inverter ( large battery) but it only covers some lights and the fans. I am going to investigate having a generator installed. Regarding a 'tad more light' on the pathway to the street I am meeting with the Panchayat to discuss this. I have installed lights part of the way at my expence and I don't mind putting more. But I do need to discuss this with the Panchayat to get their permission.

Relaxing stay in a charming house

  • 4 of 5

Two friends and I have just returned from India including a 12 day stay in this charming old style Portuguese villa. Whilst not the place to go if one is looking for 5 star modern but impersonal hotel accommodation it is a real home from home in a peaceful area just a short distance from the hustle and bustle of the main street where there is a large supermarket, Newtons, and other shops and restaurants for one's every need. The owner and his staff maintain the house and beautiful garden well and there are lots of characterful touches. The private pool was a big bonus as being the end of the monsoon period, red flags where out on the beach, which is about a ten minute walk from the house. We spent a lot of our time relaxing in the pool and the patio area. The owner responded to our initial enquiry very quickly and was available by phone and e-mail to provide useful tips about our stay. He also made sure that we were met on arrival at the airport and a return transfer also went without hitch thanks to his local manager, Biraj. Biraj's lovely wife Sangeeta came daily to cook fantastic breakfasts, clean the house and change the linen etc. Nothing was too much trouble. The pool was also cleaned daily. All in all we had a wonderful time in Casa Maya and would not hesitate to go back or to recommend it to friends. One tip - take a torch as part of the lane to the main street has no lights. The garden is well lit and the owner has put some lights in the part of the lane nearer to the house which helps considerably.

Amazing Goan experience

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had an amazing holiday at Casa Maya. It was our first time in Goa, and we felt really lucky to have found somewhere so comfortable and well equipped so close to such an amazing beach - and stores, bars etc.

I've read some negative reviews about the villa, but our experience was totally different. You have to understand you're in India, and expect minor issues like blown light bulbs. However, nothing that couldn't be fixed in minutes failed during our stay. The place was in good nick, and lived up to the pictures online (the pool especially), which were what sold it to us in the first place.

Was it like a week in Broadstairs? No. The traffic's hair-raisingly Indian. The maid and the driver are Indian. The climate's Indian. The locals are Indian. If you want a week in Kent, go there. If you want a week in India, there aren't many better places to enjoy one.

Lovely 2 bed villa in a central location

  • 5 of 5

I spent an extremely enjoyable fortnight with my boy friend last May at Casa Maya and were met at the airport by a very friendly driver who took us straight to the villa. Which was very convenient as it was our first trip to Goa.

The villa itself was perfect for us with it’s private pool and a helpfull local manager Shane who arranged some nice trps for us including a day riding horses as well as hiring a scooter for us to make trips on our own exploring the local beaches.

The villa itself was located very centrally but also in quiet spot close to the Candolim Beach and we were able to enjoy breakfast next to the pool in the morning watching the local bird life without the intrusion of the busy crowds only a short distance away.

Inside the house we had a comfortable bedroom with it’s own bathroom as well as another bathroom so that we didn’t need to share the same one.

If we any complaints sometimes we wished that Maria the housekeeper was a little over attentive but this was outwayed by the overall pleasure of staying in such a lovely house.

Would defintely consider returning and recomending to our friends.
