About the property

Villa in Candolim, North Goa, India - Private, Serene Home, 10 minutes Walk to Beach

Built in the Indo-Portuguese style, the house is situated in Candolim, just off the main street, yet once inside the gates of the guarded community, there is a sense of serenity and peace. The coconut, mango trees and other flora give it an aesthetically pleasing environment. The tiled patio on 3 sides gives a chance to enjoy the outdoors and a place for children to play. The swimming pool is just beyond the house. Full air conditioning, satellite TV, exquisite modern furnishings and fittings and power backup in case of power cut. The villa is maintained as a home away from home. All 3 bedrooms are comfortable and kitchen is fully equipped with dishes and appliances, maid service is provided every alternate day with linen change every third day. All this is available at less than half the price of a resort hotel. Candolim beach is about 10 minute walk. Supermarkets, internet cafe, ATM's, restaurants all within a 5-minute walk.

About Meena Kumar

We are an NRI family and have recently purchased this property in January 2010 as we fell in love with Goa and have been increasingly spending a lot of time here. We have made a lot of friends amongst locals & fellow travellers. Once in a while we like to have our friends and family join us & so found this to be ideal in all aspects. Though in the heart of happening Candolim, the apartment is a quiet retreat surrounded.After a day spent on the beach or other activities, you walk back into the cool secure comfort of the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thank you so much - your villa is absolutely lovely. It looked great online but was even better in reality. So spacious, clean and comfortable, but also very beautifully decorated, and lovely grounds. It was great having a proper kitchen with microwave and cooker so we could sort our own meals. And the water filter was a real asset for us - saved us having to carry bottled water back from the shops all the time. And the maid, Angela, was very nice and helpful. It proved ideal for our family holiday and we would definitely look at booking again next year. My father lives in Goa so we hope to return soon.

Many thanks,
