Washing machine , TV etc.

A swimming pool for our use , 7 minutes walk to the beach .

2 restaurants within walking distance .

Marcia the owner is such a lovely lady and so very helpful.

The views from the bedroom are stunning and make for interesting viewing for bird and animal watchers .

We would certainly love to stay again without hesitation .

had a very good holiday in Varca the apartment was excellent very clean and equiped with everything to make a good holiday. It has a very good communal swimming pool and is situated close to plenty amenities and although there are shacks close by and a new hotel opposite it is quiet and relaxing. The owner is very helpful and friendly and makes you very welcome, nothing is too much trouble for her and makes every effort to make your holiday relaxing and stress free.

Hidden retreat

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have been viisting Goa for many years and finding good accommodation is very important to us as we are long staying vistors.

This apartmnet is really good, spacious clean and well appointed. The owner Merlene goes "the extra mile " to ensure your comfort and regularly provides provisions for her guests.The view from the rear balcony is stunning where plenty of birds and squirrels can be seen flitting around in the trees whilst you are eating breakfast.The small shop on the complex offers a reasonable variety of groceries and is staffed by really lovely helpful people. A short stroll to the beach, lovely and quiet at night , nice, well maintined, pool and gardens, good host ,nice folk close at hand for advice and guidance.A great place to relax and indulge in the experience that only Goa can provide.

Entspannter Urlaub in ruhiger Umgebung

  • 4 of 5

Mein Mann und ich verbrachten im November 3 wunderschöne Wochen in Goa.

Die Ferienwohnung ist groß und landestypisch eingerichtet. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man benötigt. Eine Waschmaschine steht auf dem Küchenbalkon. Man kann dort ruhig schlafen, wird allerdings zum Sonnenaufgang von den Vögeln "geweckt". Die Wohnung hat 3 Balkone (einen an der Küche, einen von beiden Schlafzimmern aus begehbar und einen vom Wohnzimmer aus). Auf diesem haben wir gerne gefrühstückt und dabei dem Vogelgezwitscher gelauscht sowie die Pfaue, Schweinchen und Eichhörnchen beobachtet. In der Wohnung wird regelmäßig sauber gemacht (wie oft - je nach Wunsch, ist im Preis inklusive). Handtücher und Bettwäsche sind ausreichend vorhanden und werden regelmäßig gewaschen. In der Anlage befindet sich ein schöner Pool und ein kleiner "Tante Emma Laden". Die Bewohner und der Hausmeister in dieser Anlage sind alle sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Zum Strand läuft man 10 Minuten. Da es an diesem Strand (Varca-Beach) leider keine Strandlokale gibt, fuhren wir mit dem Tuktuk in 5 Min. zum Benaulim-Beach. Das Essen in den Lokalen ist überall lecker und günstig.

Marcia, die Besitzerin der Wohnung, ist eine unglaublich liebe, freundliche und sehr hilfsbereite ältere Dame.

Sie hat für uns Taxifahrer Moses organisiert, mit dem wir schöne Tagestouren unternommen haben. Außerdem hat uns ihr Freund Anthony mit seinem Tuktuk zu verschiedenen Stränden und in die umliegenden Orte gefahren. Mit Moses und Anthony haben wir vorher Festpreise für die Fahrten ausgemacht.

Einen Internetanschluss gibt es nicht in der Wohnung. Wir haben uns von Airtel günstig eine Simkarte für unser Handy gekauft.

Wer einen entspannten Urlaub verbringen möchte, wird sich in dieser Wohnung sehr wohlfühlen. Bei Fragen, Problemen etc. steht Marcia immer sofort hilfsbereit zur Seite.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Sabine & Roland for your review. I hope I will get more visitors like you to stay at my vacation apt. There must have been high-tide for no beach area on the beach, as otherwise there is a beach area. I am happy you liked the next beach. I hope you will visit Goa again. I am very glad you enjoyed your stay. Sincerely, Marcia (Merlene).
