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

My husband and I stayed at Olaulim Backyards over a long weekend in August and it was indeed a welcome relief from Delhi. Pirkko arranged airport transfer for us and that went very smoothly. We stayed at the Sunbird (I think that's the name) cabin right near the water's edge. It was lovely - very comfortable bed, fun outdoor bathroom,... More

We didn't stay at Olaulim Backyards, we just spent a day there paddling on the backwaters. It is a beautiful property with a good size body of water to kayak / canoe on. They have one double kayak, two single kayaks and a double canoe. The waters were quiet with different inlets to explore allowing us to spot many birds... More

We went for a short break in the summer, to this place. We were completely surprised by the property ! It's along the river bank, with beautiful views, lovely attraction for kids and elder's alike with the number of activities to do or to just relax on one of their arm chairs facing the cool waters, with the property owner...

We are not your usual tourists. We look for places that are off the map, away from the crowds and steeped in nature. Olaulim Backyards in Goa, was all of this and much, much more. This quaint Homestay, consisting of just 3 idyllic nature cottages is run by the endearing couple Savio and Pirkko Fernandes. Literally off the map, with... More
