I absolutely loved my two nights at Olaulim Backyards; easily my favourite place I stayed during my two weeks in Goa. I travelled up from Palolem to find something quieter and was so pleased I did. Pirkko, Savio and their lovely children immediately make you feel welcome and part of the family. I loved my cottage, very clean, full of... More

If you want India at its best this is the place. A wonderful natural place that is quiet and peaceful. We could not have asked for more. The food was authentic North Goan and fantastic. I have never felt so at peace. Loved it. If you visit Goa please visit this little gem. You won't be disappointed .

where do I start? Wow! We all loved it. I could write a review on this place for hours, I'll start with the family, great friendly people, greeted from our taxi by pirriko who is a lovely lady, and mantra the donkey and Max one of the three dogs. Lovely stay with nature in cosy little homes dotted around the... More

What exactly was it that made Olaulim Backyard our favorite place in southern India? The lakeside setting and early morning boat trips? The fantastic choice of well prepared foods at all meals? Walks with Pirkko and Savio through the nearby village? Meeting other interesting travelers and sharing stories? The array of birds in the canopy around our huts? The charming... More

We originally went to Goa for the beaches and Olaulim was a bit of an afterthought. Thank goodness we did go! It is a truly magical place and a sure highlight of our trip. The drive out there through colourful villages dotted with temples and churches was a great opportunity to enjoy rural Goa and at once felt more peaceful... More

I went to Olaulim with my mum and some friends and I spent two wonderful days there. We felt very welcomed by Pirkko, Savio and their kids. They did everything in order to guarantee a home like atmosphere. During the day we had delicious breakfast, went swimming or kayaking, had lunch, hang out in the huge garden and after dinner...

We spent four lovely days of November 2013 in Olaulim backyards. For us and our children , this was heaven on earth. Their pool is comparable to any five star hotel in its odd shape and lovely surroundings. What our two pre schoolers enjoyed the most were the company of Shibu the great dane, Max and Laku, the three dogs,... More

Wow! This was an amazing holiday experience. We went during monsoon (which was late) and got some fabulous weather. The surroundings of Olaulim were so relaxing and beautiful, especially being so close to the backwaters. It was great for the children (aged 3 and 5) to be able to swim whenever we wanted and to take the sit-on-tops on the... More

After much deliberation on where to go during monsoon, we chose Goa. I chanced upon Olaulim backyards on the net and after reading positive reviews, contacted Savio. He reassured us that we would be able to do quite a bit of activity despite intermittent rains. And both he and Pirkko made sure that we were not disappointed. The property is... More

Olaulim Backyards was more than we expected. A true gem of north Goa. We spent two nights and had a fantastic stay. The lovely Fernades family are so accommodating. The food was fabulous, particularly if you enjoy local dishes and freshly picked tropical fruits! There is plenty to see and do to keep you active, beautiful scenery to help you... More
