Michael Moore purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Michael Moore chose Candolim
I brought the Apartment as it was near to Candolim High Street but far enough away from the traffic and tourists. Ideal two bedroom Apartment on the ground floor on a well maintained Compound built and maintained to Western Standards, by Acron. Ideal for short and long stays it is well supported with 24x7 Security, Swimming Pool, full time Gardner's and the housing density is low. It is convenient and easy to walk to the Shops, Beach and Bars. I like it with all local amenities, cheap to live and a good climate.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Apartments and Villas are very private, quiet, which is a unusual in India, well maintained and never busy as most Owners only stay for short periods. So expect no more than 10-15 people on site at any one time, apart from the Christmas Period (High Season) when most of the Units are full.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
Wonderful large apartment, we stayed for 2 weeks it has everything you need . Close to the beach and bars and restaurants The pool is great it is cleaned daily, the grounds are beautifully kept and are very quiet would love to stay again in December we highly recommend it
This property surpassed all our expectations! It has all the facilities that you could ever need and the location was ideal for us. I have called this a property, but it is so much more than that! Huge living space, including a very large bedroom and a/c throughout. Unfortunately our dates are unavailable for 2018 and I know we will be hard pressed to find something of a similar standard.
We spent just over 3 weeks here and we were extremely impressed with the apartment.Spacious rooms,spotlessly clean and in a lovely quiet location yet only 5 minutes to the main Rd and hustle and bustle of Candolim.I would highly recommend the apartment.The complex is beautifully maintained,the gardens,pool area etc are cleaned daily and also the gated complex is very secure.Superb. Cannot fault the apartment or complex.
QUITE AND RELAXED.
THE DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPERTY WAS ON THE MONEY. QUITE, RELAXED, WELL MAINTAINED, CLEAN, THE REPRESENTATIVES ON SITE LOOKING AFTER THE GUESTS DID A GREAT JOB. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT, YES WITHOUT QUESTION. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE RENTED IT NEXT YEAR BUT THE DATES WERE UNAVAILABLE. THE OWNER, COULD NOT OF BEEN MORE HELPFUL.
THANK YOU FOR A ENJOYABLE STAY.
We (4adults 60+) stayed for 15 nights from March 24th 2015. We could not fault it. There is everything you could possibly need for your comfort and convenience. The complex is exactly as described in the booking section regarding distances etc. We found using the back gate was the best way to get to the main road, 5mins or so.if you need to stock up then use Newtons and get a cab. We never paid more than 150 rupees from anywhere in candolim. Michael the owner could not have been more gracious and helpful during the booking process even supplying Santosh to do the airport transfers. Highly recommended.
Our family, two aduts and three children (one baby), stayed in Villa Rosa for a month and the apartment was super! It is large, much larger than it looks on the photos. It is clean, everything works perfectly and very silent (which is hard to find in Goa...). It is situated 5 min and 15 seconds from the high street, if you walk in a normal pace. It is another 7 minutes to the sea. The apartment is very well equiped with everything you need. Michael is a super good host! He fixed everything we asked for and is very generous. If you need a reference please ask Michael for your contact details and we will tell you more about this perfect palace/place!

There are many eateries in Candolim, also we have the Golden Tulip Hotel & Sukhantra Hotel behind Complex very convenient for a quick meal reasonably priced.
Still cheap by Western standards, 4-5 pounds each, but nice places to eat. The Fortune Hotel is nearby which I like. It is a very good and popular Hotel and all said and done with a buffet lunch and dinner for outside customers.
There is the Shack Bar at the end of the lane leading from the rear exit of the Compound behind my Apartment called Ryanz. The views of the valley are nice, the food is cheap and basic, no windows and a tarp for a roof. Worth a try, I use it for meals from time to time.
The Stone House Restaurant and Bar at the end of road (Candolim High Street) leading to the Complex is good food wise as well as live music in the evenings - takes some beating in my book and prices are very keen I eat there often. Also Ruffles Restaurant on the main road opposite the road up past the Ryanz from the Apartment. They do very good English food including Breakfast. Recommend their Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding on Sundays, but its all good and they have live music in the evenings to. You can ask for something and usually they will cook it. Lots of shack Cafes on Candolim Beach 10 - 15 minutes walk from Apartment all good value and to many to recommend a good or bad one. Banks and ATM's in Candolim and Calangate.
