The balcony even had its own kettle and fridge so we could keep our water and chocolate cold :) Vanciene the owner was so lovely and helpful, she stayed up until 3am to see us in from our late...

A great place to stay, located just at the back of the Tibetan market, and 2 minutes walk from the main beach area. The room was very clean and spacious with a balcony and fridge. No breakfast available but numerous cafés and places to eat on the doorstep. The host was very helpful providing us with all the information required... More

Our stay at Mango Villa was incredible! Vinciane is a very attentive and nice host, she will help you with any requests you may have. Also her employee and the taxi driver she is working with are pleseant people who will make nearly every effort to accomodate you. The Mango Villa is located behind the Tibetian Market, approx. 250m from... More

Lovely little guesthouse. Not a hotel so won't have any real hotel amenities (like a restaurant, etc) but rooms are large and clean (no TV), bathrooms are also big. Nice balcony/patio area outside each room with chairs for relaxing. Owner is very nice and friendly. Wi-fi is included, but quite spotty (keeps logging out), and hot water also not too... More

The Belgian lady who owns this homestay is lovely! Super accommodating, she even leaves a phone for guests to use. Beautiful rooms with balconies and lovely landscaping. Great place to stay! Siva is a yoga instructor who lives close by who gives great classes at sunrise and sunset.

Nice big spotless rooms that feel like home, the cleanest we've been to in India. The place is a home of a lovely French family who made us feel welcome right away and helped with whatever we needed. Very quiet but still close to the restaurants and bars on the North Cliff. Worth the price!

Perfect positioning next the the North Cliff and the Tibetan Market. The owner is very friendly, relaxed and attentive - makes you feel right at home and provides a mobile outside of the room so you can call her if you have any questions etc, which is very useful and a nice touch. Design and structure of the room one... More

A quiet and calm place to stay, only 5 minutes walk from the main strip/beach. We chose one of the smaller double rooms but it was bigger than most places we've stayed in India: light and airy with a large (and spotless) bathroom, big bed and tasteful artwork on the walls. There was also a small terrace outside the room... More

Our arrival at Mango Villa was like coming home! Vincaine greeted us by name and made us feel very welcome! Our room was an upstairs AC room and was immaculately clean. Beautiful personal touches, like fresh flowers, lamps and mirrors. Location was brilliant, behind the markets so away form the noise but a very short stroll to the Cliff top... More
